GumbyX84 commented on Pokémon's Ash And Gary Are Getting The Nendor...:

I don't get why a simple change can't be made. If the author actually read the names of the characters on the item description and/or box he would have seen the names of the characters. He assumed it they were Ash and Gary. After someone pointed it out, he defending himself and decided to be snide to the commenters who tried to correct him. Seems petty to me and the arguments used to argue against the commenters are weak at best. One of the default names you can choose in the games are "Ash" and "Gary" so that automatically makes him right? That is the best "reason" you can come up with? That you didn't even think of yourself?

Someone doesn't like that they were corrected by the commenters (some who I will admit were very rude about it), so he decided to get up on his high horse and use lame excuses to prove he is right and everyone else is wrong. Poor form. Stuff like this (the editors not taking criticism like a professional) casts a bad light on the site and writing staff.



GumbyX84 commented on First Impressions: Our Maiden Flight In Star F...:

@kyuubikid213 I was thinking the same thing.

Wow... just wow. I didn't think everyone would be so negative towards Nintendo. I swear people are having "Duke Nukem Forever" syndrome: The game doesn't live up to the hype that everyone built up for it. It doesn't mean it will be a horrible game. I'm excited for the new Star Fox. The graphics look good to me and the gameplay changes look fun. They will probably allow players to change some of the controls to something more familiar (like they did in Star Fox 64) and the gyro controls can probably be disabled. So please stop all the doom and gloom. Keep your expectations in check and leave the fanboy-ism at the door.



GumbyX84 commented on Weirdness: This Game Boy Macro Is Crafted From...:

I've thought about this numerous times, but don't have the skills to make one. I'm highly tempted to make one out of a DS Phat as I wouldn't have to worry about the cart sticking out the bottom a bit. That plus a flash cart for my ripped ROMS = yay! Sadly $130 is far outside my price range



GumbyX84 commented on ​Vote Now and Decide Which Classic Mega Man ...:

Voted for Megaman and Bass. I know the GBA port wasn't great but it's the only way to play this great game without hunting down the original SFC cart or a repo. Hell I have a translated repo and I'd still like to see it on the VC.



GumbyX84 commented on Capcom Announces Monster Hunter Stories for 3DS:

This looks interesting. I don't know why, but it feels like Dragon Warrior Monster (the originals) where they took a bit light-hearted tone. Loving the art style. Here's hoping we can see some gameplay footage sometime in the next few months.



GumbyX84 commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate April DLC Available ...:

Is the March DLC still available for download like they did with Dead or Alive? I haven't picked up Monster Hunter 4 due to moneis, but will thrown down for it if it means I will miss out on all the DLC.

Edit: Found my answer on the Capcom Unity blog ( It says the March DLC pack is still up but doesn't say for how long. I'm assuming it's for good but I'm probably going to break down and grab the game this weekend just to be safe.



GumbyX84 commented on Nintendo Download: 6th November (North America):

Super Mario Advance isn't just a port of SMB2/SMB:USA on Mario All-Star. It actually has a lot of updates from the All-Star remake including red coin hunt, added graphical effects, and other little surprises mixed in. After looking into reviews of the game and watching parts of an LP of it, I really missed out not getting SMA. SMB2 is one of my favorite games as I used to play it like crazy as a kid. I have a feeling I will be grabbing it sometime soon.



GumbyX84 commented on More PDP GameCube-Style Wired Fight Pads Pay H...:

I was able to test one out at the Gamestop on the mall I work at and have to say the build quality is actually really nice. Solid construction and doesn't feel cheap. However, the left analog stick is taller than I'm used to and doesn't feel comfortable for me. Not sure what I'm going to do now as I'm not sure if the Hori pads have the same problem and I can't easily buy one and return it if I don't like it.



GumbyX84 commented on The Legend of Dark Witch Unleashes On The Nort...:

This looks pretty good. I will wait till I read some reviews but I can definitely see myself getting it along with Shantae and the Pirate's Curse. So much for limiting my spending on games this month. At least they aren't at full retail price so that helps.



GumbyX84 commented on Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire's File Si...:

Not sure why but the video isn't loading. Might just be me but I thought'd I mention it. The trailer looks really good. I love the scene where the protagonist is sneaking up on a Pikachu. That wasn't in the original right?



GumbyX84 commented on Video: Evolution And Biking Shown In Pokémon ...:

@DarkKirby They are different bikes like they were in the original games according to Bulbapedia ,which backs it up with official artwork for the game. The footage at the end of the video is of the Mach Bike going up the mud slope. The article incorrectly states it was the Aero Bike, which cannot go up slopes due to being slower than the Mach Bike.



GumbyX84 commented on The Club Nintendo Reward Details Are In For Au...:

And I lost my chance at Paper Mario. Yay for forgetfulness. Star Fox 64 is the only thing that looks good on this month and I already own the original and 3DS remake, I'd set.

PS There are physical rewards, but only five: two sets of greeting cards ( Mario & Luigi and Nintendogs), Epic Yarn patches, and two Animal Crossing items (a poster and a reversible carrying 3DS pouch). The others have been removed outright or are out of stock.



GumbyX84 commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Patch The Controversial ...:

I don't know what the huge deal is. I refuse to believe this gives you any real advantage. There is no real way to test it. You can never race the same way on a track multiple times. You will always take a turn a little bit different or hit the drift just right. This isn't like snaking where you can clearly see the advantage. I could care less if it's taken out or not.



GumbyX84 commented on Twisted Fusion Joins the Kickstarter Ranks, Wi...:

The game is still in development so there is room to grow. Looks interesting to me though I want to know about the game and on what scale they plan on taking the game. I would love a Metroid-vania style run-n'-gun on the Wii U.



GumbyX84 commented on Star Parodier Removed From the Wii Virtual Con...:

I would have bought it in a heatbeat if I knew it was going to be removed. I'm tempted to follow GeminiSaint's lead and get Neutopia 1 and 2 asap. Sames goes for Pulseman. Here's hoping for some extra money after PAX East.



GumbyX84 commented on Hardware Review: Retro-Bit Super Retro Trio & ...:

While I love my RetroDue (it's what got me back into retro gaming), I'm going to hold off on this until the RetroN5. I didn't know it ran on Android OS. This means we shouldn't have the same compatibility issues as we do with repo consoles. Looking at you Battletoads.

I do have one question I hope gets answered in the Super Retro Advance Adapter review: Will it only play GBA games or will GBC games work as well? To my knowledge we don't have a way to play GBC games on a TV yet.



GumbyX84 commented on Mighty No. 9 Is Getting The Live-Action Movie ...:

@Zobocop Was just about to post that. Suprised no one else noticed it. Maybe we're reading too into it or it was a mis-quote. If you look at Go-Nintnedo's article, you see an ellipsis after "We don’t have the rights to Mega Man, obviously, but we are working with him on a live action adaptation of it"



GumbyX84 commented on Mobile Pokémon Clone Eco Spirits Hatches A Ki...:

"The developers aim to hit their $95,000 target before March 11th, but should they continue to receive donations after the target has been met, there’s a chance the game could come to Wii U and 3DS."

Yes. A release of your totally "original" game on Nintendo p
latforms.... Any guess how long it will be until they get a cease and desist?



GumbyX84 commented on Review: Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Be...:

I just played the PS3 version of the game (Gamefly sent me that instead of the Wii U version) and while I agree that it can get a bit boring at times, I still don't think it's as bad as reviewers are making it out to be. Gauntlet and Champions of Norrath got great reviews back in day and are still considered great games today. They play exactly like this. I don't understand how those can be so great and this so bad.

All that withstanding, game should be $40 at a max.



GumbyX84 commented on Review: Power Rangers Megaforce (3DS):

@CountWavula First off, leave the rose colored glasses at the door. While I love MMPR and Power Rangers in general, I cannot say that MMPR is the "best series EVER". Much like any season in any series, it had its faults. Megaforce definetly has its problems, but some of them can be looked past just like those in the original series.

Sorry for getting off topic, but it annoys me when fanboys start whining. I didn't expect this game to be that great, thought I didn't expect it to be that bad. I have it in my Gamefly Queue so I'll come to my own conclusion once I give it a try. While it might be bad, I don't think it can be as bad as Power Rangers Super Legends. Oh dear GOD the megazord battles >.<

PS Jason not best Red Ranger. Tommy is. Followed by Andros.



GumbyX84 commented on Pokémon Bank Pricing Emerges For Europe:

I know people are sating that $5 is nothing and people who complain shouldn't be, but you guys need to keep something in mind. Having cloud storage for your pokemon is fine, but transferring Pokemon from the previous gen to the current should be free. IMO Nintendo's reason for not having a local transfer app is bull.

" Why can't I Link Trade Pokémon between Pokémon X or Pokémon Y and past Pokémon titles?

Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, and Pokémon White 2 were developed to be compatible with the Nintendo DSi system, while Pokémon X and Pokémon Y were developed exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Due to differences in the functionality and specifications of the two families, including their communications systems, it is not possible to carry out communications directly between software designed for the two different families."

If this is true, then how is it possible to transfer Pokemon from Dream Radar, a 3DS game, to the Gen 5 games, which are DS games? With an SD card being included with every 3DS to date, there is no need for two systems as Pokemon can saved to the SD card before being transfered to X/Y. If they are concerned with cheating or duplication, limit how many Pokemon can be transferred at once so the internal memory of the 3DS can be used.



GumbyX84 commented on The Pokémon Company Lays Down The Law On Chea...:

@SonataAndante THIS. I have only hacked for EVs, moves, and levels. I breed for IVs and shinies (if so desired) and all my movesets are legal. I do this so I can enjoy the game in friendly tournament play and in-game without a lot of grinding, which isn't fun and feels like a waste of time to me. While I understand many people have faced cheaters that have ruined the online game for them, some of us do things within the rules. I cheat "legally". Take that as you will. 9 out of 10 I won't be able to do this in Gen 6, but thankfully Nintendo and Game Freak have decided to make EVs a lot easier to track and gain so I probably won't have to worry about it.



GumbyX84 commented on Review: Kirby Super Star (Wii U eShop / Super ...:

@allav866 Yes I have played it. And beaten it, including MetaKnightmare. Also, it was back when the game first launched so its been awhile sine I've played it. I didn't think it was necessary, but maybe I should have stated that that was my opinion. I personally prefer the original as the extra content doesn't really interest me. The only ones to note would be MetaKnightmare and True Arena. Also, they took out Megaton Punch.



GumbyX84 commented on Microsoft: If You're Backwards Compatible, You...:

The only reason I don't use backwards-compatibility is most of my game collection isn't supported or doesn't work right. Maybe if they actually put effort into BC with the 360 that number would be higher. I know many people who used BC with the PS3 and Wii (those models with the feature anyway).

@Frapp Agreed. IMO, this is as bad as the guy that started the "always-on" PR fiasco.



GumbyX84 commented on Feature: Nintendo Battle - Game Watch: Super M...:

I say this is biased towards SMB3, but if it wasn't I'd be surprised. Both seem like fun games. Seeing this brings back memories. I remember running to the jewelry section of K-Mart to play the Game Watches while my mom shopped.



GumbyX84 commented on Nintendo Download: 14th March 2013 (North Amer...:

So the retail download of MH3U comes out 5 days earlier than the physical retail game. >.< You suck Capcom.

I'll be downloading the HarmoKnight demo and maybe MM3. I will have to wait till the 19th to get MH3U. Hoping the circle pad Pro XL comes out on the 19th.
