Kat commented on Nintendo Download: 26th March (Europe):

Mega Man Zero 3 is a great game but I already own it on GBA. Shin Megami Tensei is tempting but I have so much to play, it's ridiculous. So, nothing for me!



Kat commented on Weirdness: Fan Creates Custom amiibo of Sonic ...:

This craze is weird. Sticking any old toy on an amiibo base does not make it an amiibo. Aside from the effort put into making the card backing legitimate, this type of custom is lazy and boring. And ultimately, the creator had to destroy an amiibo in order to get the base.



Kat commented on Reaction: Satoru Iwata Holds Off on Major Anno...:

@DESS-M-8 You may have missed out, depending on where you live. Pre-orders in Europe went up sometime between a few days and a week after the Nintendo Direct announcement. I think GAME in the UK had them up immediately after it ended. Maybe try asking around /r/amiibo on reddit.



Kat commented on Nintendo Fan Creates a Mewtwo 'amiibo' That Wo...:

FYI, this is not an old Mewtwo toy. It's the Tomy one and is widely available. Mewtwo is confirmed for Sm4sh already so his amiibo is pretty much definite. Why anyone would want to pay in excess of $250 for a $5 toy in an amiibo box astounds me, especially when the amiibo will probably be out for Summer.

Edit: It would be just as easy to make any Legendary Pokémon into an amiibo. All you need is a spare amiibo stand and the toy. For instance, I could go to Toys 'R' Us and pay £3.50 for a Deoxys in the same series and simply stick that on an old base. Hey presto, Deoxys amiibo.



Kat commented on Nintendo Download: 5th February (Europe):

I really want Shantae but that price just kills it for me. Still playing through Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta, Smash, Pokémon, and more, so it's not like I don't have anything to play right now.



Kat commented on The Hyrule Warriors Majora's Mask Pack DLC is ...:

I too have noticed a doubling in the loading time. Thought I was just imagining it.

I haven't had a chance to try Young Link or Tingle, but playing as OoT Impa is probably one of the coolest things ever. :)

@OneBagTravel And I loved Twilight Princess. Skyward Sword has moments of brilliance, too (but I agree that it was a weak entry).



Kat commented on Super Mario amiibo Series Can Now Be Preordere...:

I have zero interest in any of these amiibos. Not really surprised that they sold out so quickly, although it's weird Toad didn't go first. Now the only way to get Peach is to pay £69.99 to get the bundle.



Kat commented on Nintendo Download: 22nd January (Europe):

This is probably a very unpopular opinion, but I actually hate Donkey Kong Country Returns. It's only challenging because of how unfair it is. There's only one animal friend (Rambi), there are no water levels (best thing about the originals), and there's an entire world of mine cart stages. A lot of people love the game but I just don't see the appeal of rage.



Kat commented on Rumour: Concept Work from Former Next Level Ga...:

Samus looks like a Geodude wearing chicken stilts in that concept art!

But it's been far too long since we had a handheld Metroid game. The last one was what? Prime Hunters? Bleargh. Seriously. We're dying here.



Kat commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons...:

I love both of these games. For me, Ages had a better story, sure, but Seasons was just so much more fun. I also feel that Seasons' music was better; Dancing Dragon Dungeon and Ancient Ruins are so catchy [and I have the Level 8 music from Ages in my head as I type this... go figure]. Like many have already said, there's no point in playing one and then disregarding the other. I see them both as being one game that was too big to fit on one cartridge!



Kat commented on Regional eShops Will Continue to Offer Differe...:

Nintendo needs to stop annoying half of its fan base in the Western world every time it only lets one side have particular content. We all like the same games. Australia seems to get it much worse than everyone else. My advice to them would be to combine the e-shops and make everyone happy.



Kat commented on Rumour: Nintendo May Cut Wii Price to $150 Nex...:

I'm all for a Wii follow-up, but it will be super lame if it's announced before Skyward Sword comes out. Think about it - Twilight Princess was designed for the Gamecube, so the Wii hasn't had its own Zelda game yet!
