Ichiban commented on Hands On: Blast Ball Brings Crude Button Mashi...:

I enjoyed Other M, i had a ball laughing my ass off at the ultra cheesy, over the top cutscenes!
This is just pure ass though, and its good to see so many Nintendo fans speak out about, rather than defending it to their grave (although i do see a couple!)



Ichiban commented on Blast Ball is Actually the Tutorial in Metroid...:

I've watched some gameplay vids of this on GameXplain, and it looks boring as hell.
Also, people expressing disappointment in something is not the same as being an entitled crybaby (or whatever nonsense you guys are on about) People are actually expressing their disappointment in a fair, rational manner here. Perhaps if you weren't Nintendo yes-men you could see that.



Ichiban commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Asks for Fan Trust With Metro...:

The thing is.......first impressions are everything. Just ask Microsoft.
And don't you dare compare the beauty that is Wind Waker to that........thing you claim to be Metroid. Not doing yourself any favours there.



Ichiban commented on Interview: Warren Spector on the State of Nint...:

I'd love to see an Epic Mickey game which really lives up to it's full potential. The first wasn't perfect, but it had a great atmosphere & played fairly well. It just feels like the series hasn't been given the opportunity to truly shine. The potential is definitely there for something quite amazing.
Hey Nintendo, here's a project you should fund: Epic Mickey 3, exclusive to your next console. Let Warren take his time & go all out.
Ah how I wish....



Ichiban commented on Nintendo Download: 2nd June (Europe):

I started Ocarina Of Time on Gamecube yesterday after the news that it was hitting VC, so I think I'll stick with that........although off screen play is nice.....hmmm.....
Getting Lego Jurassic World with my Xbone later this week, which I can't wait to try



Ichiban commented on Working On F-Zero Wouldn't Have Been My Idea O...:

@justastone nothing against the guy, he has created some amazing experiences & seems very charming & sweet.
But he seems to have just as many bad ideas as he does good ones these days, & is very old fashioned. We would probably end up with F-Zero without online or something just as mind boggling.
But that's just what I think & I don't expect many (if any) to agree. But hey thats ok!
Sorry to everyone for kinda derailing the conversation, back to it!



Ichiban commented on Nintendo Gets Tough With Miiverse Bans, and So...:

I love seeing everyone's awesome artwork (especially the Splatoon lobby, sooo much Zoidberg & Spongebob!)
But apart from that it seems my stick figures & random gibberish are too much for miiverse to handle. So I rarely bother with it anymore, apart from the occasional screenshot.
Too strict if you ask me



Ichiban commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Approach to amiibo is In...:

I'm not a fan. No doubt some amiibo do look pretty cool, (Megaman comes to mind) but man there are far too many of them now. How many Mario amiibo do people need?
Plus they've messed with the nice collectors edition games we used to get. Remember the gold wiimote bundled with Skyward Sword, or the Monster Hunter 3 classic controller pro bundle? They were fantastic! Now it seems all Nintendo special editions just have an amiibo lumped with the game:/ Very Lame.
Of course I am the world's number one hypocrite, as I'll be picking up my Yoshi's Woolly World amiibo bundle next week (it will be my first & only amiibo though!)
Nothing will change. Nintendo will apologize for amiibo shortages, then during the next direct, Bill Trinen will announce another random wave all while having the biggest grin on his face



Ichiban commented on Australian Rating Confirms That ZombiU is Shuf...:

This was the game which made me realise that dual screen gaming isn't for me. Having to look between the tv and gamepad screen was a really strain on my eyes, & made me dizzy every time I played it. Great concept though.



Ichiban commented on Feature: Five Key Moments from Nintendo's E3:

It was a showing of old men showing off games for old men. Time to bugger the lot off imo. Reggie, Miyamoto, Iwata, & Aonuma (who takes freaking forever to deliver average Zelda titles:/ I haven't played an epic Zelda game in 9 years!)
Compared to the Splatoon team, who brought a new IP to Nintendo with more life & energy to it than anything Nintendo has done in years.
And they did it in a very short amount of time. Its time for a big change dammit



Ichiban commented on Take More Risks With Your eShop Purchases, Ple...:

New amiibo: "take my money & left testicle!!"
Taking a risk on new eshop purchase: "hmm i dunno, money's tight, I played a short game once & I only have enough storage for the next 8 years worth of Pokémon releases so I'd rather not"
