HandheldGuru97 commented on Review: Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer (...:

I am looking forward to this game, I am disappointed that it won't punish you for going against the grain. A little defeating when you realize this, but this game will thus be easier (for better or for worse) for children. Meaning Nintendo does have a hell of chance to make this one of the more successful games of 2015. Still, I love Animal Crossing and I will pick this game up and some amiibo cards and enjoy carefully planning out my interiors. Sure I know that I could meet the bare minimum, but the challenge is that you are here to create something, if you're going to be lazy and fail to meet those conditions, why are you even playing the game??? Lord the cynicism that has come from this "community" is staggering as of late, but I have said my peace.



HandheldGuru97 commented on Talking Point: Tatsumi Kimishima Is A Safe Pai...:

At the moment this seems like a sensible move. He may not be a game developer, but Hiroshi Yamauchi the golden Nintendo president, never even played video games! I think we will be in good hands, does this mean that we'll see a new Nintendo president in 10 years or so??? Unfortunately yes, but this as temporary aid, this is excellent. The NX and Mobile coming into play and a major focus...Tatsumi Kimishima seems like the best bet for ushering Nintendo into the future. I look forward to see what his leadership brings to the table.



HandheldGuru97 commented on Chieftain Bob Meets Gunman Clive, You Won't Be...:

I am going to try my hardest to stay rational amongst many, dumb and clearly clueless fools on this site. The change I have seen Nintendo Life in the last 5 years or so is, staggering. The click bait articles, the dumber and angrier the comments God. So first and foremost:
To all, my apologizes for the "Chirstian" ignorance from (mostly) my fellow countrymen. Secondly:
This is just a little tiny detail in a much greater game!!!!!!! Clive kisses the girl in the end, it's just meant to be a funny little tease, because Clive is the one kidnapped if you play as any other character!!!!!! It's meant to be tongue-in-cheek! And lastly:
I am just stunned by the stupidity, of so many!!!!!!!!! If there is one I have learned as a (semi-practicing) Catholic is the one commandment Jesus left his followers "Love thy neighbor as I have loved thee"!!
Homosexuality wasn't even A WORD until the 1890's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was added to the bible as the LGBTQ community began to appear more and more in the 50's!!!!!!!!!!!!! (And that is just in the modern sense, Greeks and Roman's are known to have openly gay men and women!!!!!!!!!)
Nintendo Life, I am disappointed in the ways this site has changed for the worse. Click bait, angry and clear stupidity and hatred. Oh how I miss the days this site was smaller.....



HandheldGuru97 commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd September (North America):

Man gotta love all the "NOA SUXZ cause [insert whatever game or service that got shorthanded]"
Ladies and Gentlemen, it may come as a shock, but porting old games to the 3DS and Wii U takes...effort! As much as a AAA Blockbuster??? No, but there is some recoding and control implementations that have to be worked on, it's not like ripping the ROM and calling it a day! Nintendo is doing this as a one man show, the Wii VC they had a lot of help from 3rd Parties, and most of those companies are gone (or mobile-only). The 3DS is nearly 5 years old! And as much as I love the Game Boy and Game Boy Color....there aren't too many games left to put on the eShop (and the ones I can think of...are 3rd party games!). The NES or Game Gear, there are handful of games that I wouldn't mind seeing on the service, but Nintendo's focus on the Wii U....really isn't all that surprising.

Yes it is a bad week for the 3DS, but again at nearly 5 years old, the 3DS will get it's own successor sooner than the Wii U (unless they are one in the same). The U is getting a big spotlight this year, but the 3DS has held that same spotlight for many years on its own. So I myself will wait for September 25th and maybe clean up the backlog in the meantime!



HandheldGuru97 commented on Preview: Getting Inside The Curiously Undemand...:

This has also become (weirdly enough) my most anticipated 3DS game too. I love the design aspect and the freedom the game offers!!!!!!....It sounds like a nice mid-generation follow up to New Leaf, I'll get this on cart and enjoy resiting the AC Universe!



HandheldGuru97 commented on The Smaller New Nintendo 3DS Model is Coming t...:




HandheldGuru97 commented on Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer and amiib...:

Happy Home Designer is going to hurt my poor wallet, but I am very excited for it! New Leaf is easily one of the best 3DS games, and my most played at over 200 hours. Now....amiibo Festival.....hehe....yeah, that really isn't for me. But I'll be too busy designing homes (probably in Fallout 4 by this Holliday season ) to care!



HandheldGuru97 commented on Updated 'Roadmap' Infographic Shows Nintendo's...:

It's a good line up. The 3DS is my main Nintendo platform of choice, that release slate is a little barren, but with Legend of Legacy (which isn't for whatever reason on here), Happy Home Designer, Chibi Robo (gotta go for the amiibo!), Yokai-freakin-Watch, Fallout 4....(hehehe) and Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, and maybe Project X Zone 2, Stella Glow and
Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale, late 2015 into 2016 will be plenty full for my 3DS (and PS4...)



HandheldGuru97 commented on Potential Massacre Averted At Pokémon World C...:

@Ralizah and @HollywoodHogan Hey guys I did just want to apologize. I let my emotions get the best of me and of course that has left a dumb internet comment.
As an American citzen, it's just so frustrating to see this type of thing happen on a near daily basis, even if tragedy was averted here...still my apologizes, the first comment I made shall be deleted.



HandheldGuru97 commented on New Patent Sparks Talk of Potential NX Details:

Hmmmmm.........very interesting, very interesting indeed. Guys, we need to remember This can mean everything or nothing. This seems....odd. The PSP Go was critical and commercial failure, just six years ago. And yet, so much has changed in six years, it truly is incredible. Still, I think it is too early for Nintendo to go for an all digital console. Now if the mysterious NX (WHICH AGAIN WE STILL KNOW NOTHING ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) is a hybrid, the console portion (as is seen above) looks to be a docking station. That makes the handheld portion the priority, which could further damage 3rd Party relationships, in the west. The handheld being the priority in Japan means Nintendo will have major support in the East, much like the 3DS.
But we shall see...we shall see.......



HandheldGuru97 commented on Yo-kai Watch Hits North America on 6th Novembe...:

Dammit. That is too close for comfort to Fallout 4.....hrm....damn. This is a problem, with the frozen nuclear wasteland my backlog is going to turn into after that megaton drops on November 10th....maybe I'll ask for this for my birthday (a few weeks later)........would be to do????



HandheldGuru97 commented on Ninterview: Dave Higgins And The Quest For A C...:

Awesome collection, mate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Game Boy (and more specially, the Game Boy Light and Game Boy Color) are two of my favorite handhelds in my collection. While overtime I've picked up many different handhelds (Atari Lynx, NGPC, Sega Game Gear and even the Tiger!) , but the Game Boy I keep collecting for it! Here my Original GB and GBC collection at 109 games



HandheldGuru97 commented on The Legend of Legacy Launch Edition is a Thing...:

This looks like it is staying at $40 even for the LE, but hell I'd pay $50, mainly cause that art book looks mighty impressive. I'll pay off my Fallout 4 Preorder and put money down for this and Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer!!!! (HHD seems to get better and better, with each passing day)



HandheldGuru97 commented on 3DS Can Last For Another Two To Three Years In...:

I suppose the 'Guru should chime in, right?? Well NIS makes a valid point, as a smaller company NIS is likely to take advantage of the last years of the 3DS and Vita more so than other AAA big name developers. After this year's e3, you can see the 3DS has aged a lot in the last five years, but Nintendo seems committed to bringing it through 2016 (and hell, I'd say more so than the U). However...we still don't know what the NX is!!!!!!!!!!! I (duh) want it to a handheld. But it could just as easily be a console as it could be a handheld!!! Or both! So I don't know...with the New 3DS Line....a year certainly sounds reasonable, two years...sure maybe, but probably not longer without a replacement. I think we will see the last of the last 3DS game(s) in 2019-2020, but hey, we shall see...we shall see.



HandheldGuru97 commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X Wii U Bundle and Specia...:

Awesome!!!!!!! Thats I nice bundle for the Hardcore(er) fans that might not have a Wii U. Xenoblade being on the eShop is HUGE! I have it on the New 3DS (muddy textures and all), not really my type of game...and yet....I've really enjoyed it. Still far from complete, I'll probably play it on my flight today...



HandheldGuru97 commented on Soapbox: It's A Tragedy That Rare Replay Isn't...:

This and Fallout 4 are the games I plan on getting when I pick up an Xbox One sometime next year. (My brother has a PS4, but it's likely he won't give it up when I move out next year....and I wouldn't mind giving the giant VCR a chance) RC Pro AM ll is super expensive!!!!!!!!! One rare NES game to keep an eye out this collection is prefect for the cheapskate in me!



HandheldGuru97 commented on Super Smash Bros. Version 1.1.0 Update is Now ...:

Very nice update!!! Wish we were getting Tourneys on the 3DS, but considering that the game will (probably) explode if anything else is added to the game, I can understand....just means I need to fire up my Wii U and play some good old fashioned tourneys!



HandheldGuru97 commented on Final Fantasy Explorers is Journeying To The W...:

Well this is a interesting development!!!!!!!! I didn't think this game would come Stateside, but I have been interested in maybe giving it a whirl (and I'd imagine that the better it sells, the greater a chance XI comes west, like others have said) So...damn you Square got me. Also it comes out in (usually) the worst month for gaming, so huzzah! (Not like I won't still be playing Fallout 4 to care about anything else...hehe...yeah...)



HandheldGuru97 commented on Dragon Quest XI Is Coming To The Nintendo 3DS ...:

@TheLastLugia Hey, I've been around this neighborhood for a many, many moons. Sure as hell has gotten rougher in the preceding years. Showing any amount of leniency to Nintendo and not being on the whole...DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMED! Train, you're attacked and burned by "Nintendo Fans" they are the best....ugh. Damn I wish I could go back to what this site was like in those were the years....Still look, the Wii U, like I said, it failed, move on. It is a game console if you're one of the ones who feel that you've been "burned" by Nintendo....fine don't buy the NX, leave this site too while you're at it! But don't let the door hit you on your way out! I've held through some rough years with Nintendo (and thats only been about 10 years!!!!), they're not a bad company. The best??? No (they're a corporation after all), but they march to the beat of their own drum, and it takes spunk to that in this world. I dig it, and I'll support 'em, until they go down in flames or until I've run my course with video gaming. I have more happy memories than with...just about anything else. So we shall see what the future holds...we shall see.



HandheldGuru97 commented on Dragon Quest XI Is Coming To The Nintendo 3DS ...:

WHOOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES! Okay, okay...calm down Guru, calm down. Kay, I'm good. Wowza! This game looks AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! The PS4 version is gorgeous and the 3DS version is charming as hell. That is a pretty wicked use the dual screens, can't believe it took 11 years after the DS launched for something that cool to happen with the dual screens! Now...the crushing reality...we have no less than 10 say it with me uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco, seis, siete, ocho, nueve, diez ,t-e-n Dragon Quest 3DS games that have failed to come westward in the last five years (dammit I can't believe the 3DS is that old already...) So the chances this 3DS DQ title changes the trend are slim to none But....the NX???? Maybe...maybe.

Also I notice that there is a lot of "Nintendo Fans" (NOTICE THE QUOTATION MARKS!) fear mongering the whole "Nintendo is DOOOOOOOOOOOMED" or "The Wii U is dead, #Nintendo3rdPartyForeverCONFIRMED!" So lets all stop and calm the hell down.
The facts:
The Wii U is Nintendo's worst selling console (Virtual Boy remains their greatest failure ever, but as a quick blip, not a major console), that sadly won't change
Nintendo has been in this boat before, do you remember??? No of course not. That was 15 years ago with the Gamecube, when the Xbox (one;)) and PS*2* were outselling the 'Cube at every turn. In a sense, history is repeating itself here. Nintendo killed the 'Cube in 2005/2006. That is 4-5 years after the 'Cube launched. The NX is (maybe) coming next year, but more likely than not it's coming in 2017. Again in case you can't remember....that is 5 years after the Wii U launched (November 18, 2012), now since the NX is looking like a spring launch, it's more like 4 1/2 years, but still, almost 5 years!
With the NX....we still don't know if it'll be a handheld, a console, both, neither or a mix of the two WE DON'T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It could be anything at this point. Will it likely replace the Wii U??? YES! The Wii U has failed, sorry, but it is a failure! Nintendo isn't going to try and appease a few fans mad that the U isn't getting AAA 3rd party titles and all the AAA Nintendo titles that you want! They can't afford to do that. And could it be a replacement for the 3DS??? Absolutely! Now the 3DS went from an early grave to the best selling console of the 8th generation. But she is getting old, like I said, 5 years old Next March, Nintendo needs a successor for both. Whether or not you like

Nintendo isn't going to appease the minority of ticked off fans about the Wii U. Either way we still don't know what the bloody hell the NX is/will be! So just RELAX and enjoy the U for what it is.
Now back to my excitement for DQXI!!!!!!!!!! Hype Train.....activate!! (And 3DS DQXI plz come west...please...)



HandheldGuru97 commented on Review: LEGO Jurassic World (3DS):

The reviews for this portable Lego outing seem to be all over the place (NWR gave it an 8, NL giving it a 4 here), hrm. I'll watch for some more reviews and maybe wait until this hits the bargain bins. My Jurassic Park nostalgia will probably cover up a lot of the flaws, but who knows...we shall see.



HandheldGuru97 commented on First Impressions: Heading Back to the Farm in...:

This one wasn't really on my radar (Story of Seasons only came out earlier this spring!), but the game look a lot like Fantasy Life and really appears to be a massive labor of love for the Xseed team. They sure know which gems to bring stateside, so I'll certainly give this one a try (probably in 2016)



HandheldGuru97 commented on New Pokémon May Be On the Way Following Movie...: very well is likely to be a Gen. 7 Pokémon, much like say Munchlax and Lucario as one of the commenters above stated...but I don't think well see Gen. 7 next year. PKMN Z, definitely, but why no Gen. 7??? Simple, if the NX is a hybrid or handheld thats where Gen.7 will get its start (at least I hope they won't repeat the Black and White mistake!), but that wouldn't happen until 2017 at the earliest, a little Pokémon Z to hold us over until Gen. 7 in 2017.



HandheldGuru97 commented on Nintendo Download: 16th July (North America):

Quiet week, but next week looks a bit better (Streets of Rage 2, Binding of Isaac and Dragon Fantasy: The Volumes of Westeria), a bad week, but given what has happened I can hold off until next week.
@Qun_Mang So I can't remember exactly when it happened (I want to say late 2012 or some time in 2013), but Reggie remained President of NOA and Iwata became CEO. I don't believe the same thing occurred in Europe, but I could be wrong. It was strange little tale, I'll have to look up and see what the full story behind these events were.



HandheldGuru97 commented on Nintendo Cancels Camp Miiverse in Honour of Sa...:

@JaxonH @Yoshis_VGM Thanks for mentioning November 22, as that was the date of Super Mario 3D World, The Legend of Zelda a Link Between World's and Mario Party 3DS in 2013. The 22nd of November also happens to be my birthday the world goes on. The pain of the day's tragic events (whatever that day maybe), remain in the annuls of history, but life has to go on. 9/11 is still a touchy day in the 15 years post attack, just like (I'd imagine) that 11/22 was a rough day for a decade or so after '63.

But back to the topic.
I think its a little weird to cancel the events, we're all sad, but why cancel the events??? Strange, but I bet Nintendo feels so lost after this sudden loss.



HandheldGuru97 commented on Nintendo President Satoru Iwata Passes Away Ag...:

Satoru Iwata, I don't care if you always agreed with him or not. The man was a visionary, he truly cared for the gamers, first and for most, even if you didn't think it. Time to fire up some old DS and Wii games (and maybe some old GB games, from his HAL days...), and "leave luck to heaven".
RIP Iwata-san, thank you for making my childhood. Thank you.



HandheldGuru97 commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Retail Games of 2015 ...:

Oh, its an exciting end of the year for this HandheldGuru!!!!!!!!!!!
Loz Tri Force Heroes
Chibi-Robo Zip Lash
Legend of Legacy
Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon
Yokai Watch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'll probably end up getting AC: Happy Home Designer...need to look into that one a bit more and maybe Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold...not bad at all (especially with Fallout 4 coming)



HandheldGuru97 commented on Poll: What Do You Want From Nintendo's NX Plat...:

Some people are going to be sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo disappointed in a years time when the NX is fully announced and it is nothing like they wanted Personally I'll look forward to that date

As for me...I'll keep the expectations in a HandheldGuru, I'd like to see a new handheld, a semi-HD or HD follow up to the 3DS hitting next year. With a Wii U successor hitting in late 2017 (maybe 2018) and the NX being the ambiguity, with NX referring to the connection the two units will have together. They won't be a hybrid, but they'll be the most interconnected Nintendo Console/Handheld, ever. With many individual games exclusive to the handheld and the console, but with plenty that are cross-buy or connect in some way, shape or form to make this "NX" two separate, but two connected handheld/console experience for Nintendo fans.



HandheldGuru97 commented on The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy's Grand Adventure Wi...:

I'm a huge Peanuts fan, Snoopy and the Red Baron on the PS2 and Snoopy Tennis GBC those were some of my favorite games back in the day. Hell I might pick this up on day-one so i can have a light hearted stroll through Schulz's world, before Fallout 4.



HandheldGuru97 commented on Gunpei Yokoi Discusses The Struggle To Make Th...:

This man was truly the greatest video game designer in the history of video gaming. Yokoi's thinking, while always a little bit sideways; it was a fundamental to Nintendo and in fact remains a central part of Nintendo's modern design philosophy: (Lateral Thinking with Withered Technology). I know some don't agree with that mindset anymore, and yes it can be understood, but my god look what a success the GB and later the GBC became, with Yokoi's ideology! Hell that old brick still holds up to this day!!!!! (Even if it is a bit hard to see what is going least on the Original Brick, the GB Light and GBC are sooooooooo much better!)



HandheldGuru97 commented on The Square Enix Teases for Dragon Quest 3DS Lo...:

Please, Please, Please, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've been waiting to long Enix (Square, too). If I have to I'll buy 100 copies of each just so SE can meet their (insane) sales goal! V and IX were easily some of my favorite DS games...sure we might only get VII and VIII, none of those Monster Remakes or Rocket Slime 3, but after all these years...I'd just be happy with VII OR VIII (but both would be preferred SE )



HandheldGuru97 commented on Prototype SNES PlayStation Found In The Wild, ...:

Oh, My God. I'm not the type of collector to box things in classy, glass case, but I would certainly put this on a pedestal in a bulletproof glass case (with flood lights!!!!!!) This truly is one of the Holy Grails of video gaming and one of the most important pieces of gaming history!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ah the Sony X Nintendo history is a fascinating tale (one that has been detailed many a time above me)...



HandheldGuru97 commented on Talking Point: The Pros, Cons and Questionable...:

There's no way it would launch in July...however Nintendo has released a handful of consoles in the summer months (mainly handhelds like the Original GB and Original GBA), but when looking at Japan....and console releases things get interesting. The Famicom, N64, and,.......welp the Virtual Boy. In the West it's just the SNES and...well, again the Virtual Boy!
So it has happened..and I'm not saying it couldn't come out summer, but I really...REALLY doubt it!



HandheldGuru97 commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Shipping This Time Next Ye...:

Lordy! These rumors are getting out of hand!!!!!!! And I remember the "Project Café" rumors getting out of hand in the months before the U was unveiled (and I remember the crushing disappointment too ) Same thing seems to be happening with the NX...which will suck (for all you, hyping the machine up to no end) All I hope for in the end, is that the NX is a handheld (in some way, shape or form) and is successful, for Nintendo (20 mil in a year!?!?!?!?!??! Not happening...though)



HandheldGuru97 commented on Metroid Prime: Federation Force Producer Expla...:

Once we have confirmation on C-Stick (it sounds like it is pretty likely) controls, then I'll be totally sold! This is the type of game that could really benefit from the extra power of the New 3DS (but it is understandable that they made playable on all 3DS models!)



HandheldGuru97 commented on Talking Point: Metroid Prime: Federation Force...:

@Shiryu Your fist comment is exactly how I feel about this. I AM going to get this game and give it a fair shake, in 2016, when we have the final build in our hands! This looks like a pretty early build and Next Level Games, built one of the BEST (and dare I say one of the prettiest) 3DS games. I'm not going going to bash on a game I haven't seen in person, played or even really know about!!!!!!!

And also I don't think anyone, but again @Shiryu, is talking about the developers. These poor guys at Next Level Games, they have wanted to work on Metroid, FOR YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEARS! And they had their (rather promising, yet strange looking) 2D Metroid, canned by the higher ups at Nintendo back in 2009 (in favor of Luigi's Mansion 2), to have the opportunity to make their own take on Metroid as a spin-off (while Retro makes Prime IV or whatever else they are working on) must of been HUGE for that team up in Canada. They must be gutted, to see all the hate and vile towards them, and THEIR game! The poor guys are probably begging Nintendo to take the Metroid name off of the game and maybe even slip it under the rug and put it out next summer, in hopes that maybe they'll be able to make money back on this game, that sadly maybe 6 people are going to buy! (I know there will be more, but thats all I've seen on this site....)
It really is unbelievable the amount hate and vile I've seen on this site. I know this website went down the toilet back in 2012, but dear lord....GROW UP! Again this an early build, from Next Level. I know you didn't want this Metroid...but at least Nintendo is giving you guys something! And after the hate this game got....we might never see another Metroid game (I hate to say it, but Nintendo would use the poor reaction that this game got as an easy scapegoat to kill the Metroid series)
I had to get that out of my system, I'll grab this one, and Tri-Force Heroes and enjoy (likely) the last great year of 3DS gaming in 2016. Peace!



HandheldGuru97 commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

As a 3DS (with some Wii U and PS4) gamer, I'm very pleased. Not 100%, but a solid 80% pleased. Some great and really weird 3DS titles I couldn't have dreamed of! Metroid (which I just rewatched the trailer) looks a little rough, but its early yet and Level Up Games did make the one of the prettiest game on the 3DS (Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon) so I do have some confidence (unlike the rest of you folks). Mario and Luigi Paper Jam looks...nuts. I'm not going to preorder that one...I need to see more and decided if I need it (which I kinda do), TriForce Heroes looks like an expanded idea on Four Swords and with Online, it could be a sleeper hit. (That I'm so buying, will be hard to brake away from Fallout 4 though...) Then Chibi Robo Zip Lash and Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon (and everything Atlus is giving us), its gonna to be an expensive year for my 3DS (which is prefect....for me, not my wallet)
And that isn't even mentioning Fire Emblem Fates! Still need to get Codename STEAM first, (support Intelligent Systems little guy/new IP!)
