KoiTenchi commented on Sakurai Explains Why Ridley Is Not A Playable ...:

@GeminiSaint I've seen this video about 5 times now and I still feel the same way I felt the first time I saw this video:

It's a great example of why Ridley wouldn't work. Maybe that's why you posted it though.

In the video, not only is he 3 times the length of Samus and probably 1.5 times the height, but his range, power and speed are broken.

I guess you could cut the length of his wings and tail in half to lower his range but then he basically won't even look like Ridley anymore. I guess maybe people just want the NES Metroid sprite of Ridley playable though. I doubt it though, as I bet 90% of Ridley supporters would call bloody murder if Sakurai made the NES sprite playable but that has workable ratios of wings to body to actually work.

As far as people saying that Olimar changed size, note that Olimar changed SIZE but he didn't change, say, the size ratio between his arms and his body whereas Ridley would HAVE to change the size ratio between his wings and his body.

KoiTenchi commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

@MegaManEP3 it's definitely not just you. : (

I've got both systems as well and my Vita currently has no charge because I frankly haven't had any reason to even charge it in quite a long time because I was never using it.

I really enjoyed Gravity Rush but not all that much else besides a few indie games that only set me back a few dollars and only lasted a few hours.

Basically, Sony can tell me the Vita is better than the 3DS all they want, but I'm not going to believe it until they actually SHOW me it with some solid and constant quality releases.

Seriously, is Sony even still supporting it? When and what is their next big game for it? I seriously haven't got a clue.

KoiTenchi commented on Game Freak Confirms That The Pokémon Stadium ...:

The graphics and all were nice for the time compared to the Game Boy for sure...

But I'm more going to miss the Gym Leader Tower.

I'm not sure why they've never had that anywhere besides the two stadiums.

Battle Revolution always felt really empty to me because they didn't have anything like that and also didn't even have full rental pokemon choices.

KoiTenchi commented on The Club Nintendo Rewards for October Have Bee...:

A lot of people are complaining, but I'm really excited. This is the best month I've seen in the past 6 or so.

There are 3 or 4 games I will be picking up (namely Startropics II, Kirby's Dream Course, Kersploosh, and maybe Mabooshi's Arcade.

A lot of these are very good (as you can see from the reviews they linked if you aren't familiar with these games) so it's silly to complain just because most of these aren't some really super well known game like Super Mario World.

Honestly, IMO, they're better off putting games like these up there anyways since most everyone already owns games like Super Mario World and then would complain about that. It also helps some of Nintendo's lesser games get more exposure.

KoiTenchi commented on Feature: A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and...:

It's funny, I haven't played Brawl in a while, but I was just thinking about the Castle Siege level the other day! I absolutely love that level, especially the "starting" version of it. Glad to see it back!

I think it mainly especially holds a place in my mind because it's the first Fire Emblem stage that the smash series got!

KoiTenchi commented on Video: Super Street Fighter Monopoly Ultimate ...:

I'm really confused reading the article.

Is the board game just called "Street Fighter Monopoly" or is it called "Super Street Fighter Monopoly Ultimate EX Champion Edition Alpha Plus".

I really really kind of hope it's the second but I thought that may have just been you guys joking around.

KoiTenchi commented on Xenoblade's Shulk Confirmed For Super Smash Br...:

@Diddy_kong the average gamer knew who Marth and Roy were when Melee came out and their the Fire Emblem series had never even come to the US yet those same people don't know who Shulk is when his game came out in the US 2 years ago AND americans has made a MASSIVE petition to bring it over?

LOL. I mean, I'm not saying Shulk is SUPER popular, and I'm sure there are people who don't know him but LOL.

KoiTenchi commented on Xenoblade's Shulk Confirmed For Super Smash Br...:

@xj0462 what an absolutely disgusting comment.

I couldn't care less what characters you like and don't like but how DARE you wish death on someone for not making this game SPECIFICALLY TO YOUR REQUESTS.

Seriously absolutely disgusting.

By the way, on a seperate note, and I know this may be absolutely mind blowing to you, but Nintendo makes more than just Pokemon and Mario games.

KoiTenchi commented on Review: Mysterious Stars: A Fairy Tale (DSiWare):

The art in this reminds me a lot of the Professor Layton games.

I'm not too sure about a game where all the gameplay is connecting the dots though and obviously the review doesn't give me too much hope in this game.

But still, I like the art.

KoiTenchi commented on The Club Nintendo Reward Details Are In For Au...:

@WaLzgi

That would be awesome honestly.

Can you imagine being able to buy a game, play it for a week or so, then sell it for more than it cost you because more and more people are getting determined to specifically buy used?

I'm in.

Hopefully GameStop doesn't catch wind and start opening games and cranking up the price.

...though that already had happened previously with Xenoblade. Maybe they were already on to something back then.

KoiTenchi commented on Majora's Mask Fan Project Gets a New Trailer, ...:

@Captain-Falcon

Did you even read the article?

Did you even read more than the first sentence of my comment?

I'm assuming not, since you didn't even take a second to explain why you think it's supposedly okay to start marketing your own stuff in someone else's booth and steal business from them.

If you would like to discuss this, please read the FULL article and my first comment in FULL.

Thank you!

KoiTenchi commented on Majora's Mask Fan Project Gets a New Trailer, ...:

I hate to say it, but the people behind this sound like they are as oblivious and unprofessional as humanly possible which is a shame because I really, really do want a Majora's Mask remake.

The thing is though that Nintendo could have already shut them down for using their assets without their permission but didn't but now these guys have the gall to try to sneak their stuff in to the Nintendo booth at E3 which would then be taking attention away from Nintendo's actual products. No one can expect Nintendo to be okay with that.

Unfortunately I'm sure the next piece of news I see about this will be about how they were given a cease and desist and these guys will have no one to blame but themselves.

KoiTenchi commented on Hardware Review: AtGames Arcade Gamer Portable:

It looks pretty nice but I have the Mega Drive Arcade Ultimate and I found it to be a nice (and relatively inexpensive) piece of hardware but the lack of saving absolutely killed that for me.

I haven't really touched it since the first or second week I got it since I remember whenever I wanted to take a break I would have to leave the system completely on, screen and all, plugged in until I was ready to return to it.

It really killed it for me quite a bit as the lack of saving kind of kills the portability (IMO) too as you have to leave it on if you're in the middle of a game and want to take a break. No sleep mode or anything.

I really like the hardware and the idea and this one looks similar but I really feel they needed to get saving to work on these:

KoiTenchi commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

I'm really glad now that I was waiting on Earthbound! I've really, really been wanting to play it, but I figured both that I didn't have time in my backlog and that, if I waited long enough, it would go on sale.

Now I'm getting it as a free reward!

I can see why other people are annoyed though if there's really not much you don't already have.

KoiTenchi commented on Cross-Buy is Now a Thing on Nintendo Platforms:

@Yorumi it was NOT "technically possible" between the DSi and the Wii because those two eshops were NOT linked like the 3DS and Wii U eshop are.

Also, the 3DS did NOT have NNID's at launch and was not linked to the Wii U eshop until it got NNID's. There was no way before then for the 3DS eshop to know if you bought a Wii U eshop game or vice versa.

Please stop spreading incorrect information. I understand that you're frustrated, but spouting lies actually hinders your point rather than helping it.

Thank you.

KoiTenchi commented on Cross-Buy is Now a Thing on Nintendo Platforms:

@Yorumi Except it's Nintendo's consoles and the whole thing is only possible on them because Nintendo made it possible.

It wasn't possible between DSi and Wii. It wasn't possible between 3DS and Wii. It's IS possible between Wii U and 3DS though because Nintendo FINALLY made it possible, a nice teeny tiny step in the right direction.

I understand though that people find it much easier to complain and not even acknowledge that though. I mean, I'm not saying there isn't still room for improvement, because there absolutely is, but it's pathetic how people with intentionally not acknowledge the improvement already there or even outright up and down DENY it just to help try to give their complaints more merit.

KoiTenchi commented on Mutant Mudds 3DS 'Deluxe' Update Has Been Appr...:

I know this is basically just adding content that was already in the Wii U version but, and correct me if I I'm wrong, isn't this the SECOND time that the developer has updated this game with SUBSTANTIAL additional content 100 % FOR FREE? I remember downloading a patch with at least 10 new levels once before.

Anyways, my point is that I think I love this developer now.

KoiTenchi commented on Review: LEGO The Hobbit (Wii U):

@paburrows

It still would have been part of one huge world if they waited until the last movie was out and released this game with the story of all three movies included.

That's what most people were hoping they would do, rather than release an essentially incomplete game intentionally.

If the game were focusing on one movie, it would be one thing (there have been plenty of games that have done that) but this is just caled "Lego The Hobbit" so it's pretty misleading when the purchase doesn't include the whole Hobbit out of the box!

KoiTenchi commented on Mario Kart Month: Expanding the Universe of Ma...:

@beautifulstrong

"A nintendo kart game would feel like SEGA's racing, a lot of characters I don' t care if I race with and one or two that I do."

So are you suggesting then that absolutely nothing would change if Nintendo added non-Mario characters?

Because what you just described is absolutely the situation now.

I mean, I like racing with Luigi, Yoshi, Dry Bones, etc, but know that I will never ever even bother doing one race with Baby Daisy, Pink Gold Peach, Baby Rosalina, Etc. I could not care less about those characters and I know I am certainly not in the minority.

KoiTenchi commented on Review: Mega Man V (3DS eShop / Game Boy):

@CanisWolfred

In the past, I had only played V. I'm now playing the rest on GB VC (still in the middle of IV though admittedly) and I feel I missed out a little.

From what I've played now, I would recommend V, IV and III in that order. If you don't find IV appealing to you too much with it's sort of system of recycled bosses but totally revamped stages, then I wouldn't tell you to bother with III but otherwise I feel all three of those are very good.

KoiTenchi commented on Ubisoft Makes Little Mention of Nintendo in Pl...:

@memoryman3 Rayman Origins 3DS was released in November 2012. It's not the ONLY game they released on 3DS in 2012 but it's the highest profile one so I assume that's what he was referring to.

As I noted on my original post though, Ubisoft released zero games on 3DS since November 2012. I assume they have financial meetings yearly so the sales they are noting are probably only referring to sales from 2013 and this first part of 2014 AKA a time frame in which they released zero games on the system so obviously it would account for 0% of their sales.

I assume it isn't that literally no one bought a Ubisoft game on 3DS but that the amount of people suddenly buying 1 or 2 year old Ubisoft games (depending if they bought them last year or this year) were so few compared to the people buying the NEW Ubisoft games on other consoles that I assume the 3DS sales didn't reach 1% and then rounded down.

KoiTenchi commented on Nintendo Download: 15th May (North America):

@biglittlejake The price for Scram Kitty seems alright considering what the game seems to offer but I could see how one may disagree.

Either way, the game is not made by Nintendo and Nintendo does not control/regulate the price of third party games. If you feel the price is unfair, that would be something to take up with Dakko Dakko.

@andreoni79

What would be the point of not buying ANYTHING digital from them anymore? Wouldn't it make a lot more sense to just not buy that game digital from them?

KoiTenchi commented on Review: Parking Star 3D (3DS eShop):

For some reason, once I saw this review on the main page, I suddenly became incredibly curious about whether or not this game contained parallel parking! You can't truly have a parking simulator without parallel parking!

Anyways, I read through the whole review just to confirm that, yes, it does have it. : )

Anyways, nice review.

Also, the parking controls with the control pad rotating sound awkward but intriguing.

@KnightRider666 Well, as I already said in my first comment:

"I could understand someone making an argument of giving this MAYBE up to a 5, but something like a 7 is ridiculous.

If you'd give a 7 to Mega Man II on GB, then what would you give Mega Man V on GB? A 15 out of 10?""

KoiTenchi commented on Review: Mega Man II (3DS eShop / Game Boy):

@HeroOfCybertron I really don't get the people saying they would give this up to a 7 out of 10...

I love all things Mega Man (as I'm sure is clear from my avatar) but this one is definitely a fun little game that is still more than a little flawed. I could understand someone making an argument of giving this MAYBE up to a 5, but something like a 7 is ridiculous.

If you'd give a 7 to Mega Man II on GB, then what would you give Mega Man V on GB? A 15 out of 10?

KoiTenchi commented on Pachter: Nintendo Has Lost Its "Mojo":

"They're not going to sell a lot of consoles if they don't have games like FIFA and Battlefield and Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto."

Uhhhh... the Wii didn't have any of those (except Fifa, I think?) and yet it was the best selling console last gen...

Apparently those games are not as important as he thinks they are.

KoiTenchi commented on Freshly-Sliced Version Of Cut The Rope Coming ...:

I have this on iPhone and, granted I'm not big on iPhone games, but this is one of my favorite games on the device.

That being said, I'm not that interested in this... The second screen and 3D pretty much add literally nothing to the gameplay and the levels seem to be exactly the same from what I recognize.

If this game had new levels, sure, but it looks like it's pretty much a port so ehhh...

All that being said, I would still recommend it for those who don't have access for an I device to play it on.

KoiTenchi commented on Nintendo Download: 11th April 2013 (North Amer...:

Curious about Rolling Western 2 but I'm going to wait for a review for now... I liked but didn't love the original. It was good, not great, IMO.

Any idea when there might be a review for that?

I'm also curious about Soul Hackers but if I buy that it'll be physical, not digital. DSO had been my first experience with a SMT game and I throughly enjoyed it, so I'm definitely willing to try another even though I know this isn't DIRECTLY related.

KoiTenchi commented on Fez Creator Believes Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate...:

I feel like he hasn't even touch a Vita...

He's complaining about the 3DS being "too gimmicky" when it's the Vita that has the rear touchpad...

Honestly, both handhelds have their fair share of gimmicks, so to suggest that only one of them does is ridiculous.

KoiTenchi commented on Wii Mini Doesn't Include an SD Slot:

I was a little baffled by the news of this system initially, but the "no SD slot" news doesn't really phase me much.

I mean, if you can't download any VC or WiiWare from online, then all you really need the memory for is for save files and the Wii iteself should have more than enough room for that, shouldn't it?

KoiTenchi commented on Pikachu 3DS XL Now Available For Pre-Order:

This is the first I'm hearing of the Pikachu 3DS XL but I kind of wish they took opportunities like this to do packaged deals like they did at points with the DSi and DSi XL later in their lifetime.

I mean, I'm not expecting full games, but wouldn't it be awesome if this came with Dream Radar and 3D Pokedex (Pro) at no extra charge? I don't think that would be that unreasonable. : )

Slightly off topic, but I just noticed: Is the article writer new to Nintendo Life?

I don't read every single article on the site so I could certainly be incorrect, but I don't remember seeing her before.

Either way, it's always nice to see Nintendo Life grow and build up their staff! : )

KoiTenchi commented on E3 2012: Every 3DS Game Announced So Far:

Is this list compiled by Nintendo Life or from some sort of officially E3 release from Nintendo? I didn't see a source and I'm particularly wondering because everything before this pointed at the Adventure Time game being on normal DS.
