An Artistic Gamer

Male, 20, United States

I'm a pretty good artist. I like playing video games... I hope I can be part of a game designing studio when I'm older and educated. And I love Nintendo.

kyuubikid213 commented on Treyarch Isn't Working on Call of Duty: Black ...:

I guess you're trying to get under my skin with this...fact of the matter is, Off-TV Play and a larger offscreen map are amazing features and I don't get why so many people like you shun it.

What's better? Having to pause the game constantly to see the map of the area or being able to see a large map in the palm of your hands at any given time? Having to give up your family room TV and stop playing games because someone else wants to watch something or being able to bring your game down to the GamePad and gaming on? Having to get up and turn on your TV and sit down to play a game or picking up your controller and gaming right there in bed on lazy mornings?

Then of course, there's the Kinect that doesn't exist anymore. I wonder which of the two is truly a gimmick...?



kyuubikid213 commented on Treyarch Isn't Working on Call of Duty: Black ...:

@Quorthon High prices for gimmicky consoles only fits one console in the past...ever. The Xbox One.

$300 for a Wii U with a new controller that's basically a tablet that allows for dual screen gaming and/or off-TV play is far from expensive or gimmicky.

No incentives for 3rd parties is their fault. If they released the games people wanted (exactly as it was on other platforms), there'd be an audience for them on Nintendo consoles. End of story. That was an excuse with the Wii with it's different control method and it being underpowered compared to the PS3 and 360, but that's not the case with the Wii U which is more powerful than the consoles previously mentioned and not so outclassed by the PS4 and One that it'd be completely impossible for third party games to run on it.

Nintendo struggling on the outskirts? Are you serious? Show me someone that doesn't know Mario Kart or Smash Bros. and I'll show you someone who doesn't care about gaming period. Yes, the Wii U is in a tough spot, but Nintendo's not "struggling." The 3DS with 44+ million sales and a wide variety of games says "hello."

And no. Nintendo would not be better off as a third party developer. They are far from making piss-poor consoles. Again, referencing the 7th generation, how many hundreds of thousands of people's Xbox 360s red ringed? How many PS3s "yellow lighted"? Okay. Compare those numbers to Wii failures. Right. Thought so. And if you're saying this to say the Wii U's not a graphical powerhouse, please remind me when that's what was necessary to make a good console. Oh, yeah. That's right. This past generation when that's all anyone cared about. Pretty visuals first, actual game second.

Seriously, this new mentality towards Nintendo lately is pissing me off.



kyuubikid213 commented on Treyarch Isn't Working on Call of Duty: Black ...:

You know, this upsets me, but I think the pain of not getting the big third party games this fall will be numbed with Xenoblade Chronicles X, Splatoon, Star Fox, and the backlog I already have.

Don't get me wrong, I am upset, but I do have games I can play and there are other games I'm looking forward to. I'll just buy those instead. Activision'll be fine not getting my money because there are millions of others who will be giving their cash to them.

I'll stay optimistic for more third party support on Nintendo's next console, but for now, I'll live with what I have and eagerly await SMTxFE and Zelda U.



kyuubikid213 commented on Talking Point: Market Expectations Remain High...:

If Nintendo and DeNA make it work, kudos to them.

Personally, I don't have much investment in mobile gaming because my phone is an older smartphone, so it likely wouldn't be able to run any of Nintendo's offerings as it doesn't run other companies games very well.

I'll continue to support Nintendo by buying their games and consoles as long as they're still top quality.



kyuubikid213 commented on Poll: Would You Like Mario Kart 8 and Super Sm...:

As long as we're not [forced into] paying $15 for a skin (Riot) or $3 for 3000 coins, Nintendo and other companies can keep the DLC coming.

I'll buy DLC if it adds more content to an already fantastic--and complete--game. I won't buy DLC if therest of the game was literally chopped up to be sold as DLC.



kyuubikid213 commented on Video: Xenoblade Chronicles X May Have Been Su...:

Aaaaaand the anti-Nintendo people have more fuel for their fire.

It's certainly a downgrade, but I'll still grab the game as early as I can. I didn't buy Xenoblade Chronicles because people thought it looked beautiful, I got it because you all wouldn't stop talking about how amazing it was and how it was the best (J)RPG of the 7th generation.



kyuubikid213 commented on Poll: Is Splatoon a Blockbuster That'll Help R...:

I think Splatoon will sell really well for a Wii U exclusive.

It looks like it's pretty popular amongst us here on Nintendo Life and it looks like it will be a game that's a must-have for the console, but I doubt it'll increase the sales of the console by much because the PS4, XBO, and PC gamers already have Battlefield, Call of Duty, and a plethora of other online shooters to spend their money on.

I do think the game will do really well for the console it's on. Maybe even be a million sales game.



kyuubikid213 commented on Analyst Thinks Nintendo Is Already Winding Dow...:

I know the Wii U won't be around forever, but I get the feeling that no matter WHEN the Wii U's time is finally up, analysts and the rest of the "gaming media" will jump out and say "I told you the Wii U was on its way out! Nya nya!"



kyuubikid213 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Plans for DLC and Mi...:

I'm sure this has already been said somewhere on this page, but I won't mind DLC as long as both of the following conditions hold true.

1. I get my money's worth of content. So far, I think Nintendo's done well here. I've only bought the added tracks in Mario and for $15 you get a handful of new racers, new karts, and new tracks.

2. The extra content is NEW content and not just content locked away on the disc behind a paywall or content that Nintendo decided to cut from the full game to make me pay for it.

As long as DLC doesn't get outrageous, I'll be fine with it.

As for microtransactions... No. I won't buy those. Not a chance. I use my money to buy games (among other things) I would never spend, say, 50 cents to give Mario a Super Mushroom or a dollar to continue playing Animal Crossing today.



kyuubikid213 commented on Nintendo Reveals the Final Club Nintendo Elite...:

Aww.... I was kind of hoping the last rewards would be physical...something amazing to remember Club Nintendo by...

Ah well, I guess after getting the Smash Bros. Soundtrack, I'll be alright.

Gonna grab Tropical Freeze once the site is working properly (and I'm back home). Glad I jumped on that hard drive when I did.



kyuubikid213 commented on Standard-Sized New Nintendo 3DS Photos Emerge ...:

Said it before and I'll say it again...

The faceplates are a big well as the built in CPP, but I wouldn't shell out the money for one unless there were a ton of games I'd be missing out on. There were a few DSi exclusive titles (and games with DSi exclusive features) that I was able to experience once the 3DS came around. If the New 3DS is the DSi situation all over again, I can wait for the 4DS (har har) and get the N3DS exclusives later...unless Nintendo cuts backwards compatibility from the 4DS...



kyuubikid213 commented on Rumour: Metal Gear Creator Hideo Kojima Is Lea...:

@McoobabWATP Let's be honest here. Anyone that won't buy a Wii Ubecause of this announcement was likely never going to buy one anyway. They probably won't even get the NX and use the Wii U as their reason for avoiding it.

@Kalmaro No, but you don't make a console in a year... They haven't announced the yet, but the PS5 and next Xbox are underway.



kyuubikid213 commented on Rumour: Metal Gear Creator Hideo Kojima Is Lea...:

@McoobabWATP Nintendo's still supporting the Wii U. Don't be silly.

You are aware that Microsoft and Sony are working on their next consoles, too, right? Announcing a new console doesn't mean your current console is going to die immediately. Hell, I think the PS3 and 360 are still getting the big AAA games, aren't they?



kyuubikid213 commented on Zelda Lookalike Oceanhorn: Monster Of Uncharte...:

Personally, I would avoid this if it came to the Wii U. I've already got Wind Waker, and while it doesn't look terrible, it just doesn't look different ENOUGH from Wind Waker to warrant me purchasing it...

If it came to the 3DS, however, I might consider a purchase. I do have Ocarina of Time 3D and A Link Between Worlds, but this looks like it would provide a different experience from those. I would definitely consider buying it (especially as an eShop title).



kyuubikid213 commented on Zelda Lookalike Oceanhorn: Monster Of Uncharte...:

@ZeroZX-Dev The way I see it is if it does come to the Wii U, it will have disappointing sales because a lot of us already have Wind Waker HD... and if it goes to the PS4 or One, they'll either avoid it because they'll have superior games or have that as a reason to avoid getting a Wii U. "I've already got a Zelda-like game. Why should I get a Wii U to play it again??"



kyuubikid213 commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand On DeNA, Smart Device...:

@IceClimbers You see, it's things like this that make me not care about sales and whatnot.

If Nintendo DID do everything right, there'd still be entirely too many people that wouldn't buy the Nintendo console simply because it WASN'T a PlayStation or an Xbox.

At the end of the day, Nintendo's console is still considered "too kiddy" for the "hardcore" gamers. They'll also argue Nintendo's a rehash company because they constantly recycle Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong, and their other IPs even though they're likely to go out and buy GTAV, God of War III, The Last of Us, Tomb Raider, and DmC AGAIN (the remasters from 7th gen).

I'll enjoy what I get. I'll enjoy my Nintendo games. If the NX seems worth it to me, I'll buy it. If not, I'll either wait until it is or get another console.

Can't wait to hear more information about the NX and the DeNA deal.



kyuubikid213 commented on Eiji Aonuma Explains That The Legend of Zelda ...:

I don't know what's so great about a game being "open world."

I've played a lot of RPGs that aren't open world and I still think they're pretty massive and open...

And I've played games typically classified as open world and it's a pain trying to play them. Unless you know who's giving you story missions, it's a trek toward death. You go left, you die. Right, you die. Unless you get levels/items from the story, you can't even really play the game.

I don't have a problem with Zelda's world and I don't know why anyone does.



kyuubikid213 commented on Yusuke Hashimoto Outlines His Desire to Contin...:

I haven't played Bayonetta 2, yet (I have it, but I'm trying to clear my backlog, too...), but from what Bayonetta had to offer, I'd support Bayonetta 3...

...if it came to the Wii U. I don't doubt that Bayonetta 3 could make it's way to the PS4, XB1, and PC. I'm not saying Platinum wouldn't make a Wii U version...but it's possible, I suppose.



kyuubikid213 commented on Flipnote Studio 3D Free Download Details Point...:

With the disappointment surrounding the New 3DS, I'm actually a little excited about the release (FINALLY) of Flipnote Studio 3D.

I don't get what the deal is with sharing online, though. For a dollar a share online...? They stopped it because of offensive material? Guess it's a good thing they're not in charge of the Colors!3D Gallery, huh?

I dunno. I'd think that for people paying for an online fee, that'd be enough to save the kids from blood, gore, and porn.



kyuubikid213 commented on New Nintendo 3DS Release Date Confirmed for 13...:

All in all, I thought it was pretty good. Glad to see more Splatoon info. A bit upset about no standard size New 3DS confirmation and no chargers included, but I'll live. I'll probably skip the N3DS and wait for the next one.

What did surprise me was how amazing Xenoblade Chronicles X was and Wii games for download on Wii U. I missed out on Mario Galaxy, so I'll be scooping that up right away! Wish I'd waited for Prime Trilogy, but I have the first two on GCN and recently got Corruption.



kyuubikid213 commented on Feature: Five Key Reveals We Want in 2015's Fi...:

What?? At 9am...? Darn. I'll be in class, then.

Guess I'll catch it afterward.

I've decided that the best way to enjoy Nintendo Directs and E3 is to go into it without any expectations. Whatever disappoints me would likely have disappointed me regardless and I don't shrug off massive or impressive reveals because it's not Metroid U or Star Fox (which we are finally getting).



kyuubikid213 commented on Nintendo Dominated Japan During 2014, Despite ...:

While you all argue about total sales and semantics and other stuff, I'll just casually sit back this year and play the games that come to me as well as clear my backlog.

I tried to keep up with all of this nonsense through 2014 and in the end... It didn't matter. As long as the Wii U continues to get new and exciting games, I'll be happy whether the Wii U has 8 million units sold or 18 million units.



kyuubikid213 commented on Platinum Hopes to Bring "More From Bayonetta" ...:

@kidwalrus Probably just T. If they simply added Bayonetta as a racer, it wouldn't be that different from Cia in Hyrule Warriors. And besides that, Snake from Metal Gear (an M rated series) was in Brawl and THAT wasn't rated M. It was only even rated T because of the Wario Waft.



kyuubikid213 commented on Review: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy (...:

I was watching The Judge and remembered this came out on the eShop.

I'm so glad it's all three of the originals for $30. On Amazon, they're charging just about that much for ONE. I certainly feel like I've saved a few bucks...

Anyway, I love it and recommend it to anyone who hasn't played the originals. After seeing a few comparisons online, if you have the originals at your disposal or can find them cheaper than I have, pass on this title.



kyuubikid213 commented on One Of The Most Successful Nintendo Games Of 2...:

@Dipper723 Didn't a Dreamcast game come out earlier this year?

On topic, though, I didn't think Frozen was as great as everyone was making it out to be. Yeah, the songs were alright and I'll admit I sing along if I hear "Do You Wanna Build a Snowman" or "Let It Go", but aside from those music numbers, there wasn't much to the rest of the film.

I know I like to rant, but I'll keep my reasons for not absolutely loving this movie brief. The twist ending was silly and didn't really make sense. Without the music, the movie's just kind of boring. The trailers didn't advertise the good parts of the movie, just Olaf. Elsa is literally there for 15 minutes of the movie and the rest of the screen time is split among other characters and Olaf. And lastly, that's not how loving parents act (in reference to the beginning of the movie).



kyuubikid213 commented on Feature: Time to Vote For Your Game of the Yea...:

I voted Smash, Shovel Knight, Smash, Shovel Knight, Smash.

I don't personally own Shovel Knight, but I hear so many good things about it everywhere that I feel it deserves to win. As for Smash, it was certainly a toss-up, but with all of the big-name, heavy-hitters that came out across all platforms this year, I think Smash Bros. is the only one that didn't disappoint the majority of those that bought it.



kyuubikid213 commented on Video: Use Your amibo Figures Without Removing...:

When I get an Amiibo figure, it's coming out of the box. I can respect collectors and those who like the packaging, but for me, I want the figure(s) to have a nice spot on my desk.

I just don't like buying things to keep them in their original packaging. I still have my Wii, 3DS, and Wii U boxes, but that's not for resale or's just easier to store it when I have to move or if I'm going on a long trip. I'll probably toss the Amiibo box(es) because I've never kept a toy's packaging.



kyuubikid213 commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

I'm not saying I WOULDN'T, but at the moment, I don't see a reason for a Nintendo Phone.

Personally, I haven't heard of a gaming phone that's done well and using smartphones for gaming isn't as great as a dedicated console. Scrunched controls aren't my thing.

I put Maybe. Whatever happens happens. If it happens and it proves to be a viable phone that (following Nintendo's history) gives you a good experience at a low cost, I'll be on-board. I won't buy a phone just because it's got Nintendo printed on the back.

As for Nintendo games on existing phones, I'm not rich and I'd buy a PS4 or One before dropping the same $450 on a phone. I have a smartphone that can do a few apps and 3G. I'm fine with it. It can't run games, but that's what my 3DS is for.
