I love everything Nintendo, but also enjoy gaming on other consoles. My first game was Mega Man 3, and my all time favorite is MH4U. Also a HUGE fan of DKC and Fire Emblem. I own a Wii U, PS4, X1, 3DS and Vita. And of course, a Gamecube and Wii.

@TheNumberHunter
I thought the story was no lesser than that of previous games. And I actually really liked the characters- Vaike, Sumia, Basilio and Cynthia being among my favorites. And I thought the music was legendary. Seriously some tracks brought chills up my spine it they were so good.

The only thing I thought it fell short in was map elevation diversity and too few inner buildings with stairs and the like. But the game excelled in so many other areas I easily forgot about those small shortcomings

JaxonH commented on Review: Ultratron (Wii U eShop):

@rjejr
So I bought Swords and Soldiers 2. Said screw it. Bought the first for $2.99 also so I figure it all averages out anyways.

I read that article the other day and have been feeling guilty ever since. Also got Nihilumbra, and am debating on Ultratron (I wanna support Curve Studios for their quality games and regular Wii U support).

And dear goodness man, Berzerk was your GotY back in '81 huh lol? You have commanded a whole new level of respect from me. Gamer badge reinstated!

See, I grew up on chess and would LOVE to play this game online. Problem is I never have anyone to play with. Oh well, as soon as my Lucina and Robin get here in a week I'll probably give the game a go. That's what I was waiting on to start playing it because I wanted to have all 4 Fire Emblem characters first.

@rjejr
On the topic of Luigi's Mansion, The fact that it allows download play was a really big thing for me, since my brother didn't own a copy of the game. I think you can only play one mode with download play but hey, it's better than nothing.

@Tazcat2011

Yes, and it's brilliant! In fact this was the entire reason I bought a PS4 in the first place. I loved Dragon Age Inquisition- but this game seems like it's going to top it already. Still trying to get used to the controls though. There's a lot to learn in games like this...

I'll say this: I'm an avid Nintendo fan. I love their games- pretty much all of them. In fact I think the number of Nintendo games I DON'T like could be counted on my left hand.

I also love 3rd party games- but mainly just the elite few that really shine on the same level as Nintendo's own games.

I buy anything that's good on any console. And I'm content with that. In fact pre-ordering and day one purchases is all I do. I support anyone and everyone who makes a good game, be it with Nintendo, Sony, or Microsoft. On rare occasion I will wait for a price drop when I feel the price is too high but these situations are far and few between.

I have no beef. I'm a gamer who loves playing great games, and by owning all systems I never miss a great game. Although I will admit even with the Nintendo's limited libraries I still play and enjoy more great games on their systems then I do the rest of the third party industry combined. And that's not a slight against third party games- I just started playing The Witcher 3 yesterday. And it's absolutely fantastic. But the truth is I still enjoy games like Pikmin 3 and DKC Tropical Freeze more. Always have, always will.

There's nothing to be upset about if you're a gamer. Great games to go around on any console. Just buy the one that has the type of games you like most.

Christopher Lloyd is LEGEND.

Wow I love that man. Should have seen his little skit with Samuel L Jackson running from Godzilla for the MTV awards about a decade ago. One of the most hilarious skits I've ever seen in my life.

I have to agree. NES Remix is such a wasted and lame choice. I like retro games, and they were great for the championships back in 1990, but the thing is back then they were actually new games. And a new championship deserves to have new games, with new memories.

I take issue with THAT more than the number of Best Buy locations. Of course I do believe this is something that should have been announced months ago and allowed many more qualifying tournaments before hand.

With all that said, it's better than nothing. And I'll definitely be watching this E3.

JaxonH commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Modest Sales Targets...:

Considering the sales, you wouldn't think Wii U had many great games. Ironically this is the farthest thing from the truth. Even the small releases like Kirby, Captain Toad and Tipping Stars are classics in their own right. Probably because there's just nothing else like Nintendo games in the industry.

JaxonH commented on ​Feature: The Poor Career Choice of Super Sm...:

40k isn't a whole lot for being the best Smash player in the world. Most of us make more than that at our normal jobs, and we're not nearly the best in the world at what we do.

Of course, just because other sports contenders make exorbitant sums doesn't mean I agree with it. I think there is such a thing as getting paid too much for sports, and likewise, not getting paid enough. I agree he should be getting paid more considering his status.

@rjejr
Walk down State Street (famous 8 blocks of pedestrian only street starting at the Capitol building) and it's all panhandlers (which is legal here only on one side of State St), guys laying on quilts playing guitars with a money hat, college girls in sundresses and more fedoras and beards than you can shake a stick at.

They're still bundling NintendoLand here lol. Now don't get me wrong, I LOVED NintendoLand. It's actually a fantastic game (would have been even better with online and Amiibo support but that's another discussion). But it's just not moving consoles. I'd have swapped out Wii Sports Club for NintendoLand as the digital download, and bundled Smash like the pic you provided above. Physical copy of Smash with a digital download of Wii Sports Club- and despite mediocre scores, it's basically the original in HD with better controls and online- what's not to like?

Speaking of bundles, they better release a Xenoblade collector's edition and LE new3DS for Fire Emblem If. I will be greatly disappointed if that doesn't happen...

@rjejr
I personally saw the influence Smash had with people. When I was in Minneapolis for training last year, two of the trainers (mid twenties guys) told me they owned a Wii U. I said do you own Bayonetta 2? They said "What's that? I just play Smash Bros". A guy at my work (who is no longer with us) was talking about getting a 3DS for Smash, and he's a military nut Xbox gamer type guy. They were even holding local Smash sessions in the bars and hangouts here in Madison, WI, ads in the newspaper and all, like a band that plays at a bar, they were advertising 8 player Smash. Of course, its a very liberal, old-school hippy town, or used to be anyways, but even so, just seeing it gain status in the culture overnight was surprising to say the least.

@rjejr
They may not sell the new 3DS here but that didn't stop me from buying those Fire Emblem faceplates! Only $31 total shipped from Japan. Maybe one day I'll import a new 3DS to put em on (white one is only $130 on Amazon Japan, though I'd probably rather get an English speaking region like PAL).

Hanging those bad boys up on my wall, next to my sealed copies of Path of Radiance, Radiant Dawn, Awakening, the soundtrack for Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn, the hardcover Awakening art book from UK, and the original FE edition 3DS. Oh, and my newly framed and matted picture of Chrom crossing swords with Marth (should be finished at the frame shop next week). It's gonna be an entire wall of FE merch :)

@Dr_Lugae
Well obviously they're getting their chance whether we like it or not- it's not like I'm gonna boycott the game or anything- nothing comes between me and my Fire Emblem. But this just doesn't sit right with me. We've always had to determine what's the best weapon to use at any given time- they can pretend like that's something new but it's not. Awakening had all sorts of high crit/lower defense type weapons you could obtain. And yes, it did lead to saving them for the end of the game, but, that just comes with the territory.

It may work out fine- I hope it does- but I'd much rather have to strategize how many uses I have left for each weapon AND worry about what weapon to use for which enemy, rather than just the latter.

@BlatantlyHeroic
Never said they did owe me anything. But I have a voice, as do others. And it's not just my play style, it's the play style the series has had for 20 years. The play style every FE fan loves.

Question is, why should they change that beloved play style just for the sake of non-fan casuals? They shouldn't. And I intend to let them know exactly that. And anyone who feels the same should also let them know exactly how they feel.

JaxonH commented on Official Nintendo UK Store Bundles Fire Emblem...:

Why are people complaining about this? This is no different than bundling Toad with Captain Toad or Mario with Mario Party. These amiibos work with Code Name STEAM. It's good that they made bundles available- they should do this for every game that has a special amiibo use. Wish they'd do stuff like this on the NA store...

JaxonH commented on ​Famitsu Reveals Some Fresh Details on Fire ...:

My problem with infinite weapon use is that the lesser powered weapons will be relegated to irrelevance. Why use anything less powerful when you can use the Mt 20 Axe all game long? And I suppose that means forging is out, otherwise you'd just get OP weapons that never break.

I must admit, I'm not liking the sound of this infinite weapon use. I'm really not. I will be SEVERELY disappointed if you can't toggle it on/off as an option.

EDIT: I think it's time we let IS know our thoughts on the matter. I will be posting to their FB/Twitter when I get off work today. I hope others do the same. I'd hate one poorly conceived design choice to ruin what looks like an otherwise excellent game.

Nice! I was wondering if anyone on this site was going, or had gone to the 1990 Championships. Kinda awesome having a mom who was a true 90's gamer. Best of luck, maybe we'll see you on the finals podium eh?

Born in 1984. Got my NES for Christmas in 1990 with a copy of Mega Man 3 and the Super Mario Bros combo with Duck Hunt and that Olympics game with the pad. Been gaming ever since.

@rjejr
Wow. You've been talking about getting this game forever too...

But I actually kind of agree. And I'm not one usually put off by price, and even I think this is a little steep. $20 for indie games is ok with me if its a real gem- I may think it's a little high and grumble to myself but with games like Shovel Knight (which was only $15 IIRC), Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, Stealth Inc 2, etc, I'll cough it up day one.

Idk, I was planning to buy this at your recommendation and praise of the first, but I may wait this one out right beside you. $15 or less seals the deal.

JaxonH commented on Stretchmo, Known as Fullblox in Europe, is Ava...:

@Samuel-Flutter
Pushmo World is classic, a must-own in every sense of the word. Don't hesitate to grab that one- it's easily the best of the series (Possibly not anymore? I haven't played more than 10 levels of Stretchmo so this very well may top Pushmo World).

You know what I really like about Stretchmo? Besides the test model of just buying the game piece meal or in a complete bundle (which I think is brilliant btw)? One of the packs has enemies in it! It seems to be like a platforming puzzle level, like Mario meets Pushmo. Really awesome idea that has me excited to play it- unfortunately I'm a completionist and have to start with the basic levels and work my way up to those three star or four star packs.

Curious, how do I access shared levels in Stretchmo? I go to the creation tool (says create OR PLAY LEVELS CREATED BY OTHERS), but I can't find where to go to browse those levels. Is it QR code sharing only or something?

I've got an extra Toad I can sell you, new in box, if you cover shipping. Splatoon is STILL available for pre order on Walmart website. Yes they'll be common but could still sell out in stores. Pre order now if you don't wanna have to resort to eBay.

@rjejr
Toad is pretty common actually. Really gotta branch out to more than your local WalMart if you want amiibos though. Online is the way to go. And pre ordering. If you don't pre order, might as well accept that you won't be getting one. Just sayin- if you don't plan ahead you'll come up empty every time

@Grumblevolcano
Well, considering there's only 10 days of winter, likelihood is in our favor that it may drop this summer- July, August or September (doubtful yet still possible)?

I think it'll drop in October though, but that's just me.

I have all 3 colors of Yarn Yoshi coming from Amazon UK. Sure didn't feel like waiting until the holiday season for my Yoshi Amiibos...
