InsertTokenz commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

My top 3 favorite Zelda games are:

1) A Link to the Past (The game that showed me the greatness of the Zelda series)
2) Four Swords Adventure (Multiplayer goodness with classic 2D overview-style Zelda gameplay)
3) A Link Between Worlds (An excellent followup to A Link to the Past)

after that, any/all of the other games would take the 4th favorite spot.

That being said, I find the idea of polling for the "best" Zelda game to be kinda impossible at this point, given the series is chock full of games that pretty much are on par in terms of overall quality. Because of this, everyone can only really chose their "favorite" game, and not so much the "best" game, objectively speaking. The series overall is just that damn good.

I'm still playing through Bravely Default, with hopes of playing some Rusty's Real Deal Baseball and going through a bunch of streetpass data I acquired recently. Plus, I might get into playing a few PC rogue-lite/like titles I purchased.

I'm gonna try and finish up more of Bravely Default which I'm loving right now, and hopefully I can try out Rusty's Real Deal Baseball. Otherwise, I might play some more Steel Diver: Sub Wars, and play through a bunch of games I just got new Streetpass data for while on vacation.

It's looks to be a full 3DS weekend for me!

InsertTokenz commented on Soapbox: The Nintendo Wi-Fi Disconnection Remi...:

Although it depends on the type of game to determine the type(s) of multiplayer options which best support the gameplay, the idyllic general solution for most games I feel should be providing local and online multiplayer with the later option granting players the direct ability to host their own servers in order to play. Official dedicated servers could be provided by the dev/publisher if they so chose, but should they ever decide to shut them down at any point, at least the players won't be denied the online option entirely.

Sure it will likely be costly and time consuming to implement, but at least players then can have peace of mind knowing the games they invest in won't suffer from diminishing returns in the overall experience, and in turn be received more favorably and maintain a more memorable lifespan.

Otherwise, just give me offline local multiplayer. I always love playing that way when I can. :)

InsertTokenz commented on Talking Point: What We Expect In Nintendo Dire...:

What do I expect from the Nintendo Direct? Nothing.

I'll just let Nintendo show whatever it is they want to show, and if there is something of interest, then I'll get excited. If not, then it's no big deal. They have all of 2014 to surprise me with stuff. :)

I plan on trying to get a 100% completion hero mode run in Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds this weekend, along with getting around to playing the Bravely Default demo. Plus, I might try to finish up the last stage on Super Mario 3D World and/or start another playthrough of Wonderful 101. And squeeze in the usual Animal Crossing: New Leaf. :)

I'm trying to finish up Mario & Luigi: Dream Team now with the hopes of moving on to The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds which I got in the mail yesterday. Since my copy of Super Mario 3D World hasn't arrived yet, I might play some Super Mario 3D Land instead, or possibly Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island on my SNES. And my usual playthrough spurts of Animal Crossing: New Leaf. :)

InsertTokenz commented on Happy Birthday, Wii U - You're One Today:

@SavantSupreme

As far as retail releases go, I got:

  • Nintendo Land
  • New Super Mario Bros. U
  • New Super Luigi U
  • Darksiders 2
  • Zombi U
  • Tekken Tag Tournament 2
  • Batman: Arkaham City
  • Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag
  • Deus Ex: Director's Cut
  • Injustice
  • Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
  • Pikmin 3
  • The Wonderful 101
  • Game & Wario
  • Tank!Tank!Tank!
  • The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD
  • Sonic Lost World
  • Rayman Legends

while with the eShop, I got:

  • Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara
  • Little Inferno
  • Bit Trip Runner 2
  • Mutant Mudds Deluxe
  • Wii Fit U
  • Wii Sports Club
  • Mighty Switch Force Hyper Drive/2
  • DuckTales Remastered
  • The Cave
  • Trine 2
  • and a lot of Virtual Console games

Suffice to say, I (unlike many people on the internet) didn't encounter a problem with my Wii U "having no games". If anything, I find it funny that I now got a backlog already to try and get through at this point. To be fair, my 3DS ended up stealing a lot of playtime from my Wii U over this year. Thankfully, I was able to make time recently to sit down with it again and experience the fantastic Wonderful 101 (which is now the top runner for my game of the year, unless Super Mario 3D World can somehow best it). That game alone though justified my purchase of the system.

To think that next year, I can look forward to Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, the new Super Smash Bros., Mario Kart 8, Bayonetta 2, possibly "X" and Shin Megami Tensai X Fire Emblem, as well as several awesome indie titles makes me feel like the Wii U will have no problem keeping me entertained in the foreseeable future.

Gonna try and make more progress on Pokemon X (I can only seem to find time to play it on weekends), along with the usual Animal Crossing: New Leaf and spurts of Super Mario 3D Land. May play some Wonderful 101 or Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD if I get time on my Wii U.

InsertTokenz commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

I'm hopeful in trying to snag a copy of Pokemon X tomorrow in stores (It will be the first time since the original Pokemon Blue that I actually played through a Pokemon game!). Otherwise, more Animal Crossing: New Leaf as well as Super Mario 3D Land (to help scratch my itch for wanting Super Mario 3D World very badly). If time allows it also, I may play more Wonderful 101 (Just beat the game earlier, and it's my current top contender for Game of the Year, it's sooooooooo good!)

Still trying to complete Project X Zone, with hopes of moving on to Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, along with the usual Animal Crossing: New Leaf and more Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition (Trying to unlock the final Hero's Trial chamber). And I may get to playing some Rogue-lite games (Legend of Dungeon, Rogue Legacy, Binding of Isaac, etc.)

InsertTokenz commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

Still cracking away at trying to finish Project X Zone, while also looking to play some Zelda Four Sword Anniversary Edition for my quick Zelda fix along with playing some Rogue Legacy on PC, and maybe start on Mario & Luigi: Dream Team.

...And of course a dash of Animal Crossing: New Leaf. :)

InsertTokenz commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

Aside from my daily Animal Crossing: New Leaf fix, I hope to finish up Project X Zone (on chapter 33 now), and start playing Ducktales Remastered, Pikmin 3, and possibly some other stuff on Wii U. I also may play fair bit of Rogue Legacy on PC (I would love to see this end up on Wii U also! It's so good!)

InsertTokenz commented on Soapbox: Why Region Locking Is A Total Non-Issue:

When it comes to region locking on game hardware, I'm not too concerned if said hardware has it or not. Usually all of the games I want on a given platform tend to get released here anyways so I am able to buy and play them with no hassle. I have imported games in the past, but I do realize that it was not a large number of games overall, so the benefits of region lock removal don't seem like much of a big advantage in the grand scheme of it all. Instead of complaining about region locking, the gaming community should be getting vocal about more game localization efforts, as it would certainly be more beneficial to them given the opportunity to play the games they want to without any language/technical barriers to impede the experience.

InsertTokenz commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

I too will be getting my Animal Crossing: New Leaf doses throughout the week, while playing heavy amounts of Project X Zone. And I may delve into one of the earlier Mario & Luigi games as I've yet to play one and I am feeling pretty hyped up for Dream Team at this point.

InsertTokenz commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

Like damn near everyone else, Animal Crossing: New Leaf has it's claws in me and it looks like it won't let go anytime soon. However, I'm also managing to play my way through Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D and just entered into the Forest Stage. I may try to play up the last remaining times I have left of the Project X Zone demo since the full version will be heading my way next week.

InsertTokenz commented on Feature: Our Top 10 3DS Games - Summer 2013:

A good list overall. Can't really disagree over the selection. That being said, my top 10 thus far would be:

1) Kid Icarus: Uprising (I highly doubt there will be a game to topple this from being my favorite original 3DS game of all time)
2) Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
3&4) Super Mario 3D Land/Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D (Both games are interchangeable for these spots on the list, as I find them equally great)
5) Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
6) Etrian Odyssey IV: Legend of the Titans
7) Metal Gear Solid 3D: Snake Eater
8) New Super Mario Bros. 2
9) Star Fox 64 3D
10) Super Street Fighter 3D Edition

I'll be interested to see how much my list changes by the end of this year. (Waits patiently for Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Project X Zone)

I hope to get in alot of playtime with Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon (4th Mansion in single player and clear a 25 floor scarescraper online), as well as finishing up HarmoKnight (going for great ratings on all stages) and perhaps giving Pandora's Tower a go. (And mabey try to squeeze in some Kid Icarus: Uprising if possible)

InsertTokenz commented on Investors Urge Nintendo to Develop for Smartph...:

Having heard all this talk from people online about how Nintendo should develop for other hardware platforms apart from themselves, I can't help but think Nintendo and it's games would suffer horribly from making such a transition.

The fact of the matter is the reason why Nintendo franchises like Mario, Legend of Zelda, Metroid, and such have endured for so many years and are almost universally revered by gamers and critics alike, is that Nintendo made these games innovative and creative based on the hardware THEY made. When you read interviews with Nintendo regarding what goes into creating their games, it's often brought up how the technology and hardware they make plays a deciding factor in the overall design of the game. For Nintendo, it sounds as though the intimate knowledge they have of the hardware is very much a big proponent to what makes their games unique and special. If that element is taken out of the equation, I can't help but feel the quality all these people expect to come out of these games (if ported to other platforms) would be lacking a great deal, if not altogether lost.

I would rather let Nintendo stick to what they do best. I trust Nintendo to make the best games they can possible with the hardware they feel most comfortable developing for, ...their own.
