Jamester0722 commented on Rumour: Twilight Princess HD to Feature Specia...:

I'm confused on why people are upset with the Amiibo unlocking a dungeon? Doesn't every copy of the game come with the Amiibo? It's not like its being sold separately, causing scalpers to raise the price when it's hard to find.



Jamester0722 commented on Talking Point: What We Expect from Nintendo Di...:

I am so pumped for Star Fox! I can't wait to hear more about it! Its one of my favorite Nintendo series!

On a side note, I host a podcast called the Life of Gaming Podcast. Every episode we bring in a guest to discuss what it is they do to show off their video game passion, whether it be a YouTube Channel, writing reviews, or even custom Amiibo work!

Jamester0722 commented on Talking Point: The New Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo ...:

I need to let off a little steam. Time for a quick rant:

I pre-ordered that special Monster Hunter NEW 3DS XL, and I was surprised that I hadn't heard any update on it recently (since it is launching FRIDAY). I was told that it will not arrive until Monday MARCH 3! It's because I didn't pay for extra shipping! No one at my local Gamestop even told me that was even an option when I purchased it at the store.

I called the store last night and they told me that they couldn't help me, and that I should call customer support.

I called Customer support, was on hold nearly 30 mins, and was disconnected.

I called back, waited ANOTHER 35mins and finally got to talk to someone.

After being on hold for over an hour last night, I was told that there is nothing that can be done for my order. I was told that if I would have called on Friday that they would have updated my shipping for free. Instead... I am now told that my older will arrive MARCH 2!! NEARLY 3 WEEKS after release. They apologized and said that there is nothing they can do. Well that just ruined my entire week...

The thing that frustrated me the most was when she said "If you had called on Friday I could have fixed this for you". I'm sorry. Do I look like the type of man that would have a Time Machine where I can go back and fix this?! lol

ok... Rant over. I feel better now. Haha



Jamester0722 commented on Nintendo Download: 5th February (North America):

I am super excited to get my hands on more Hyrule Warriors DLC! That is the game that keeps on giving!

On a side note, if anyone is interested, a friend and I have started a podcast where we talk about all things video games. The first episode is recorded, and as long as everything goes smoothly with setting up the host, should be up on iTunes by Saturday.

Jamester0722 commented on Feature: Time to Vote For Your Game of the Yea...:

@Giygas_95 Playing Tropical Freeze reminded me why I love video games. The game play is super tight, graphics are great, and the atmosphere is just pure fun!

Bayonetta 2 was a close 2nd for me, but since I haven't finished it yet (played through Bayonetta 1 first) I felt that DK deserved the vote!



Jamester0722 commented on PDP GameCube-Style Wired Fight Pads for Donkey...:

I bought the Luigi PDP "Gamecube" style controller on a whim. It was the last one left at my local Gamestop, and I have seen how fast they disappear off of shelves. After playing a few rounds of Smash with it, I decided to test it on other games as well (including Bayonetta). It's a decent controller, but I was surprised at how light it feels. The buttons are also very "clicky". Besides that, it controls as expected. It will definitely do the job as I have friends over to play Smash during the Christmas season.



Jamester0722 commented on Talking Point: Platinum Games Has Secured a Go...:

I'm a big fan of Platinum Games. I really enjoyed Mad World and Vanquish last generation and so far have loved Wonderful 101 this generation (really looking forward to Scalebound). I have never played Bayonetta, but I am looking forward to playing both on my WiiU!



Jamester0722 commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Live Nintendo Dire...:

Of course the day of the Direct happens to be the same day that I have to attend a special after hours event for my job.... I guess I'll watch it Friday! Have to avoid spoilers until then! (Who am I kidding? I'll be all over the net reading everything I can about it! haha)



Jamester0722 commented on Animal Crossing Content Is Coming To Monster H...:

I love Animal Crossing, but this is getting ridiculous. I was like "The Villager in Smash! That is awesome!" and "The Villager and Isabelle in Mario Kart 8. That's crazy!", but now I'm like "Isabelle in Monster Hunter.... okay. Now we're going a little too far."



Jamester0722 commented on Mario Kart 8 Update, Mercedes Karts and DLC Pr...:

I went on to the eShop and downloaded the new Kart DLC, and it tells me that in order to install it I need to start Mario Kart 8. When I do the game starts, but the install never kicks in. I go into the game and the new Mercedes-Benz karts don't show up. Any ideas?



Jamester0722 commented on Cliff Bleszinski Thinks Super Mario 3D World I...:

The one thing Nintendo is missing (and I know it's been said many times before) is marketing. Part of the reason the Wii sold so well? The "Wii Would Like To Play" commercials I saw all the time on the TV and at the movie theater. How many commercials have I seen in total since the release of the Wii-U? 2. Yes, 2. That includes TV, Movie theater, and Online Pre-roll videos. That's not a good sign. How will anyone buy it if they have never heard of it?



Jamester0722 commented on Rare Originally Conceived Dinosaur Planet As A...:

I've always had a soft spot for Star Fox. I own every game. I feel that the only game that really had a misstep was Star Fox Assault on GameCube. I think the actual concept was fine, on-rail shooter mixed with 3rd-person action game, but the 3rd-person part of the game was really clunky. Imagine if they remade the game (or a game similar to it) using all of the 3rd-person controls that have been refined today.



Jamester0722 commented on Talking Point: The GamePad and its Role Defini...:

I really do love my WiiU, but if I were completely honest with myself, the only time I really use it is for off-screen play; Otherwise I am using the pro-controller or Wii Remote and Nunchuck. At the same time, I don't think a "Wii2" would have sold any better than the WiiU with the gamepad. I actually think it would sell less, since most people would think "been there done that". In a way I feel that the WiiU is what the Wii should have been all those years ago.
