KoiTenchi commented on Amazon Now Offering Nintendo Games For Direct ...:

@ledreppe and all I'm saying is:

"All Amazon is doing here is offering more options which is great since some people prefer digital over physical. I hardly see how offering more options means Amazon is "going to the dogs" unless that suddenly means something positive nowadays. I can't keep up with slang anymore."

If you don't want it, don't buy it but some people prefer options.



KoiTenchi commented on Amazon Now Offering Nintendo Games For Direct ...:

@ledreppe Amazon has always had games available physical. The physical games will continue to be available.

All Amazon is doing here is offering more options which is great since some people prefer digital over physical. I hardly see how offering more options means Amazon is "going to the dogs" unless that suddenly means something positive nowadays. I can't keep up with slang anymore.



KoiTenchi commented on Take a Look at the New 'Green Blob' Pokémon:

@BlatantlyHeroic Honestly, the whole "there are too many Pokemon" thing is silly to begin with because they haven't been actively advertising "Catch 'em All" in a long time (and I could be wrong but I don't believe they EVER did in Japan).

There is literally nothing stopping a person from just using what they want and more Pokemon = more options.



KoiTenchi commented on Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson Bursts Out Onto ...:

@Megumi Huh... Was it a monster thing like this or did that boss look like a person?

I'm not sure if telling me just that is some sort of spoiler.

I've yet to play the first one but it's on my list of one of those things I would consider if I saw it on sale.



KoiTenchi commented on CIRCLE Entertainment Highlights Early Sales Fi...:


I'm glad you acknowledged in the article that the review is still coming. I don't mind waiting and can wait patiently, it's just relieving to know you haven't missed or skipped reviewing this game!

This is the type of game where I feel your review will be really important to me! There's a number of other games I would get regardless but this is one that I'm really on the fence about. For the most part, I tend to find your reviews really helpful so I am looking forward to this one and I am sure it will influence whether or not I decide to purchase this game.

Hope to see it soon and glad to hear from all the previews so far that it does sound like the game is good!



KoiTenchi commented on Atlus Leads the Way With eShop Discounts in No...:

Now this is what I'm talking about!

I don't expect a huge amount out of the weekly eshop updates but even I was disappointed with the original update. Half the time I find nowadays that I'm more excited about the sales and demos than the new stuff going up and I was really disappointed when it originally looked like there were no new sales this week.

Now I'm definitely going to download the Untold 2 demo and possibly Fairune for that discounted price.



KoiTenchi commented on Nintendo Download: 2nd July (North America):

Yes! I've been waiting for a Ittle Dew discount!

Does anyone know if they ever fixed that issue I heard of way back where there's no sound from the gamepad if you play in off-TV mode? Were there other sort of glitches too that I'm forgetting or was it just that?



KoiTenchi commented on Fire Emblem If Changes The Traditional Weapons...:

I was actually pretty worried by the title and subtitle that this was going to say that they removed the weapons triangle completely to further casualize the gameplay (which would be fine with me if it was the case in Phoenix Mode only but I'd be really annoyed if they forced that on all modes like they are doing with the removal of weapon durability).

From actually reading the topic after that though, the actual situation here, where they're really just changing up and adding to the weapons triangle a bit, doesn't neccesarily sound bad to me at all. It'll definitely throw me off at first and take a little getting used to but I almost feel that this could add more strategy rather than take strategy away like I was worried about. I'll have to reserve full judgement until I try it but it sounds like it could be an interesting change.



KoiTenchi commented on Review: Paper Mario (Wii U eShop / Nintendo 64):


The fanart is not from the wrong game actually. It's just that it combines characters from BOTH Paper Mario on N64 (on the left) and characters from TTYD (on the right).

Anyways, as far as the rest of your comment, I'm iust as curious as you are, honestly...



KoiTenchi commented on amiibo tap: Nintendo's Greatest Bits Bringing ...:

@drewb0203 I HIGHLY doubt anyone is buying an Amiibo JUST for Amiibo tap so I can't see how you can say the price of an Amiibo is "a waste" just because Amiibo Tap is unexciting.

Not to mention, anyone who already owns an Amiibo from anything else can use Amiibo Tap for free.



KoiTenchi commented on It's Not An April Fool, The Binding Of Issac: ...:

@Gauchorino Honestly, I think you are correct about it being a mutual misunderstanding. I completely understand and am sorry as well if I became a bit overly defensive. I don't really want to continue to push it in that direction and I do fully feel at this point that neither of us meant any harm and accept your forgiveness competely. I am still kind of frustrated with some of the people who are suggesting censorship is the right answer to dealing with themes in games that they do not like (as opposed to simply not buying those games) but I do not think it helps anyone for me to continue to complain about that and I do not think it is right of me that I feel I misplaced a lot of that frustration on you after your first reply.

Sorry again and no disrespect. I think I will step away from this thread/article to not dwell on the whole topic. On the heels of that Nintendo Direct, I feel there are much more positive Nintendo-related things that I could focus on.



KoiTenchi commented on It's Not An April Fool, The Binding Of Issac: ...:

@Gauchorino If you read my post, you never would have made up some nonsense that I was supposedly "supporting censorship" by telling people that they do not have to buy the game if they do not want it but also should not try to have it removed from the eshop (which several of them suggested or implied they wanted). Because what I was suggesting was literally the OPPOSITE of supporting censorship. I mean, I thank you for your apology for your overlooking of MrMario002's statement but I am going to need some type of explanation or apology of your slandering me and trying to say I am pro-censorship because I am completely aganist that.

And to help you out with another example, here's one from Barbiegurl777:

"More so appauled at Nintendo for them even letting it get this far to where the game developer can even publish this garbage."

I'm assuming I don't have to explain the above quote but she is outright saying she is offended Nintendo did NOT censor this game and deny it being released.



KoiTenchi commented on It's Not An April Fool, The Binding Of Issac: ...:

@Gauchorino Please read through the thread.

It's clear he was NOT using "figurative language" because he not only made the first post I mentioned but also followed it up with a second post saying: "There is no room in the gaming space for the demonizing of organized religion."

He truly believes this game should not exist and that there is no room in the gaming space for it.

He was not the only one either but I am not going to go through 100+ posts a SECOND time just to pull quotes for you when it was clear you didn't even read my very post that you responded to.

You said in your post: "People have a right to express their opinions and distaste about anything, just as you have the right to disagree with them and challenge their views. However, when you try keep them quiet by pinning something on them that isn't indicative of what they've been saying, you are guilty of the same thing you criticize others for: censorship."

Did you not read my post?

In my post I stated simply: "If you don't want to buy something then, by all means, don't buy it."

I am not trying to force people to like this game or even to buy it. I am AGREEING that people have a right to express their opinions and distaste but this game has a right to exist just like those people have a right to dislike it. What those people DON'T have is a right to try to decide the game has no right to exist and that thus NO ONE should be able to play it.

If I wanted to do what these people were trying to do, I would instead have simply responded to your comment with: "I disagree with your post, please remove it." That would be censorship.



KoiTenchi commented on It's Not An April Fool, The Binding Of Issac: ...:

I'm absolutely shocked how many people in this comments section are pro-censorship for art forms and aganist freedom of speech.

If you don't want to buy something then, by all means, don't buy it. To try to say it has "no artistic right to exist" or something to that degree is simply disgusting though.

Hope you don't like reading books, watching TV or playing video games whatsoever, because if we follow the ideals you're pushing forward we may as well get rid of all of those mediums in their entirety right now.



KoiTenchi commented on Nintendo Download: 19th March (North America):

50% off Xeodrifter already?? Count me in!

That's one of those games that I absolutely would have paid the full $10 for but didn't because I simply had (and still have) way too big of a backlog but I know I'm going to want to play it whenever I can finally get around to it so for that price so I'll absolutely pick it up now.

I'm still on the fence about Moon Chronicles since FPS games tend to be hit or miss for me but I'm still considering that too.

Elliot Quest also looks good but unfortunately is probably going to fall in the same scenario that Xeodrifter fell in. I feel I'm going to want to play it eventually but it's hard to justify buying it right now with the big backlog. If there's ever a sale, that's one of those ones I would jump on immediately though. I'll still keep an eye out for the Nintendo Life review on it to make sure there's no surprises about it not being good but I get the feeling it's quite good from what I've seen.



KoiTenchi commented on Elliot Quest Has Fresh Release Dates for Both ...:

I've actually been a little mixed on this game as far as the gameplay. It looks good to me, but not great.

What I'm really really liking though is that music. I swear between Nintendolife and the eshop, I must have watched that trailer about 10 times now just so that I can listen to that music. Serious props to whoever is doing the music for this.

Honestly, even though the gameplay just looks good and not great to me, I'm really thinking on buying this game between that and the amazing music.



KoiTenchi commented on GameStop Lists Crazy Majora's Mask New Nintend...:

@CaviarMeths Literally directly from the page you just linked:

"Amazon has it available for $20.99. With a list price of $34.99, Amazon can save you 40%! Jump for more information from Amazon on this steal of a deal."

AKA Amazon had a special deal where they offered it for $21. The MSRP in the US was and still is $35 which is exactly what I said.



KoiTenchi commented on GameStop Lists Crazy Majora's Mask New Nintend...:

@Chicagoway And on this deal, nothing is over retail price.

I had just added to my original post so I understand if you missed it but tell me, would you go to a store having a "Buy 1, Get 1 Free" deal on 3DS games and expect to get a 3DS game for free and explain "but I only wanted the one game for free, why should I have to pay for the other game?"



KoiTenchi commented on GameStop Lists Crazy Majora's Mask New Nintend...:

@Chicagoway This deal comes with the 3DS with the guide, the 4 games and the amiibos. You're not paying $500 just for the system.

If you're saying you'd prefer to pay $500 for just the Majora's Mask 3DS XL and not be burdened with the 4 games, guide or amiibos, then I've seen plenty of deals for that on eBay but that is not the deal that GameStop is doing.

Would you go to a store having a "Buy 1, Get 1 Free" deal on 3DS games and expect to get a 3DS game for free and explain "but I only wanted the one game for free, why should I have to pay for the other game?"



KoiTenchi commented on GameStop Lists Crazy Majora's Mask New Nintend...:

@CaviarMeths The Majora's Mask guide included in the deal is specifically the collectors edition, not the regular. The regular version has an MSRP of $25 but the collectors has an MSRP of $35. The collectors version actually isn't even available from Amazon direct right now and the minimum amount you can get it from there from a third party seller is a little over $50.



KoiTenchi commented on GameStop Lists Crazy Majora's Mask New Nintend...:

@Spoony_Tech I've been doing a lot of Amiibo hunting and have found some stores have just one or two Toon Links or Shieks while a number of other stores have none at all. Everything else I would totally agree with you iis quite common but I would say those two are at least "uncommon" since I feel there's a pretty good chance they won't be in the first store a person would randomly walk in but can be found when you start to go to a number of different stores. Of course I'll freely admit those figures are nowhere near as rare as something like King Dedede or Ike who I've never even seen on a store shelf at all.

But yeah, everything else besides Toon Link and Shiek I could totally believe is overstock.



KoiTenchi commented on GameStop Lists Crazy Majora's Mask New Nintend...:

@Spoony_Tech I have no idea where that $941 number came from, but I just checked MSRP for everything and it literally comes out to exactly $499.

Majora's Mask New 3DS $200
Collector's guide for Majora $35
Four 3DS games ($40 each for a total of $160)
8 amiibo ($13 each for a total of $104)

Considering you're paying the exact price all of this would go separately, I'd say this is a decent enough deal for those interested in it considering you're not likely to find the Majora New 3DS for MSRP anywhere else. A couple of those Amiibo are honestly not super easy to find for MSRP either at this point though they are certainly among the more common ones honestly and a LOT easier to find then the Majora new 3DS.



KoiTenchi commented on Free-To-Play Puzzler Pokémon Shuffle Gets Upd...:

I've gotta admit, I've been enjoying this game more than I thought I would. It works great in short bursts between Majora's Mask sessions or when I simply don't have the time to get into something more intensive like Majora in general. I have yet to spend a penny on this game and never will (and haven't even used the free jewels the game gives you yet) but I'm enjoying it for what it is.

That being said I was a little disappointed after reading the article here. I was actually a little excited when I saw the headline thinking this was some update with new event pokemon or special stages. I have to agree with the other people who are saying this is basically just a patch.



KoiTenchi commented on Copyright Owner of 'Trollface' Image Explains ...:

"Developer Ninja Pig Studios, though it updated its official website to change the game's product information - no longer saying available on Wii U, a link for a free PC and Mac download was actually a Rickroll."

I noticed the article mentioned this as the developer trolling, and while I'm sure that was the kid behind meme run's intention, I'm not completely sure I would call it that. I mean, essentially what he did was put up a link and said it led to a useless half-assed game but then instead had the link lead to an (admittedly increasingly annoying) song which easily had 100 times the effort put into it.



KoiTenchi commented on New amiibo Stock for Villager, Captain Falcon ...:

Hopefully they do this out west too. I never even saw a Captain Falcon on shelves and I only saw villager literally the first day Amiibo came out and I didn't think to buy it then since he wasn't a favorite character and I didn't want to grab too many at once.



KoiTenchi commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

That's alright, PewDiePew is at the bottom of my list.

Keep in mind this is the same guy who recently banned comments on ALL his videos. The guy doesn't even care about his fans or what they have to say, only the views and thus ad revenue and cash that they bring to the table.



KoiTenchi commented on Video: TreeFall Studios Releases Its First Eve...:

@beautifulstrong good question. I guess you're right that it isn't nice to talk bad about someone else's game if you can't do better...

So considering your last comment on a Nintendolife article before this was (in regards to Mario Party Island Tour) "Island tour was horrible. A sign that mario party is now doomed to be boring from now on. SAD!!!"... When are you planning to release your own party game that's better?



KoiTenchi commented on Activision Expands Skylanders Line-Up With New...:

I always wondered if they were going to do more elements but Light and Dark seems a little silly to me since I thought Light and Dark were already supposed to be covered, at least to some extent, by Life and Undead.

Can't complain too much though, Knight Mare looks pretty cool.

Also, out of curiosity, I haven't played Trap Team yet, but were these characters visible in game through trailers like the rest of the characters have always been in the Skylanders games or is this a complete surprise announcement?



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!
