Lalivero commented on The Hyrule Warriors Artbook Catches The Eye Wi...:

Wow, things have blown up, ha.

From what I've read, it seems that numerous posters have pretty much been clarifying why it would be possible for there to be a female hero of time/Link; not necessarily demanding it.

Can't really grasp why the idea is seen as a problem. :l

I think the 'legend' post @gage_wolf brought up before was a great point.



Lalivero commented on The Console Wars Live On As Night Trap Remake ...:

@ACK I suppose you're right :P but it was just as much a point that there's too many times to count here where, if you say anything against the big N, you're an a**hat that will be condemned to hell or something, regardless of whether or not it is a reasonable argument.



Lalivero commented on Super-Secret Bases Confirmed for Pokémon Omeg...:

Wow, I'm liking those screenshots and find it amusing how you can kinda turn it into your own little mini gym, with the taking players back to yours and being able to set battle rules for your base, among other stuff. I aligned items back in the originals to do this sort of thing.

I hope we see the return of TV events, like the roof top sale of Lilycove Department(for rarer secret base stuff), the Berry Master visiting the Contest Hall, etc. I remember getting excited when I saw a TV announce that those events were showing up in x days.



Lalivero commented on Exclusive: Shantae And The Pirate's Curse Is A...:

Oh helllllls to the yeah! It's looking really great from here.

...and I'm glad he touched up on the items she'll be using because I was wondering about that. Should be interesting to see how she copes without her transformations(though they'll be missed...sniffle, ha).

@Romeo Well here's to hoping they surprise us this time in the reverse(a little sooner than they feel). Although the delays are obviously saddening, I'm glad they've taken the time to really make things for the better.



Lalivero commented on New Mega Evolutions Revealed for Pokémon Omeg...:

Suppose the new outfits are supposed to fit the tropical theme better? They look like they can double up as instant swim gear, ha. They look better in game it seems.

I like how more distinguished Aqua and Magma look though, Aqua looking more like Pirates and all.



Lalivero commented on Miiverse Tells the Tale of a Broken Mario Kart...:

Looks like you fell a step back with that whole download takeover plan, @MAB . While you may be able to get games sooner according to the actual release dates, looks like retailers have thrown a certain finger at you and made it the reverse. ;)



Lalivero commented on Ike Joins the Battle in Super Smash Bros. for ...:

@Lasermaster123 This is why I wish some franchises got less representation, unless they planned the roster to be relatively big. They have numerous options for newcomers like Isaac(Golden Sun) and Shantae, both of which are characters from pretty much the N side of things, but we get like Greninja and stuff. :l

Yeah, Isaac would be a lot better than Matthew; I mean he was still present in Dark Dawn, along with being the main protag of the originals. You think Grand Gaia would be an appropriate FS for him? A psynergy move set could've been interesting. Too bad he probably will be a trophy. :x

If they reveal a new Golden Sun, I'd ship my money(and myself) directly to Camelot. XD



Lalivero commented on Nintendo Hosting Two Big Evening Presentations...:

Dang it, @PrincessEevee9 , you beat me to it(and apparently a few others...dang all of you)! Even though it probably wouldn't get its own event, I'd love to hear if Camelot is getting ready to release a Dark Dawn sequel, because the 3DS should be getting the next installment.

klondike bar jingle What would you doooo....for the next GOLDEN SUN!?



Lalivero commented on Reaction: Mario Kart 8 Accused Of Poor Sales P...:

@Oscarsome A lot of the comments made on this article and on the Tomodachi ones are pretty depressing, as recent examples. It's telling when numerous comments made on this post are by some who don't seem to even know what a race is.

@absuplendous It seems like everyone just reads titles nowadays and posts right after. :x All the cries of said other sites using click bait seem to be oblivious to what was done with this NL article. >_<



Lalivero commented on Reaction: Mario Kart 8 Accused Of Poor Sales P...:

@ThatFellow I was actually about to point that out until I read through and saw you do it.

I find it amusing how some users are crapping all over these sites for 'click-baiting'...are they new to NL? If the title of this article(particularly the last part) doesn't scream click-bait, as an example, I don't know what the heck does. Pretty much most, if not all, sites that report on things use click-bait at some point.



Lalivero commented on Talking Point: For Better Or For Worse, The Wi...:

@JaxonH That second part was a response to Samir's confusion response.

I do agree though that, if there is to be a gamepad-less bundle, it'd be better suited for the end of the gen so that it'd be as cheap as it can be without really alienating anyone. By then, everyone should know their stance on whether or not it is really of use to them(particularly those who are holding out on games and such).

@PuppyToucher That's the sad thing. When they made the console and came up with this idea, where the heck did the games (that make great use of it) go? Things to utilize it should have been ready from the (near) get go, but we get plenty of first party titles that don't really do much, if at all and more on the way with MK8 and (likely) Smash, which they seem to be banking on atm.

It's like it is a message saying 'Hey, this idea(gamepad) is neat. Just for the sake of being different, let's just throw it out there anyways and hope that someone finds a use for it. In the mean time, we'll sit back with minimal usage and hope to get ideas if someone else does.'

@SamirMalik I don't really see it being too much of a problem in the current state but, yeah, it wouldn't help lower the confusion should things turn around. The confusion would be noticed from those who see the cheaper system in the future and buy it and then do want to play things like ZombiU or RL(those who aren't currently in this keep/take gamepad conversation).

As for those who are holding out on the Wii U and are knowledgeable(ex: some posters here), as mentioned before, it's clear that they aren't interested in what is currently out in regards to making the gamepad necessary anyways. I can see why they feel the way the do.



Lalivero commented on Talking Point: For Better Or For Worse, The Wi...:

@JaxonH I wasn't actually personally suggesting to take it out but I do get why it seems pointless to numerous others and, in their minds, should be an alternative.

I guess it is up to this E3 to see if the makers themselves will do anything meaningful and new with it.

@SamirMalik Wait...what? Not a completely new console but a workaround that would allow the console to start-up without the gamepad.

Besides, you don't think it's already confusing? With how little has been done to actually utililise it well(I'm talking about that actually requires it), especially by Big N itself, it wouldn't really add confusion, just still look like an add on. I know people who I've tried to explain it to who STILL think the gamepad is just a 'neat Wii add-on', rather than being a new console that the gamepad is a big part of.



Lalivero commented on Talking Point: For Better Or For Worse, The Wi...:

I don't personally see much going on for Off-TV play, but I guess that's due to me not having to share a TV.

@Iggly Well $50 saved is still $50 saved.

@JaxonH Isn't just saying to use the Pro Controller or whatever a good argument for offering a gamepad-less bundle as well though? Sure, some games might be unplayable but it's pretty obvious that those who are arguing for its removal have no interest in what is (currently) being offered anyways.

That's kind of admitting that the Gamepad should be an alternative. :x

@SamirMalik Couldn't they just make a little workaround though? It'd be pretty...questionable to sell a new console in an unusable state.



Lalivero commented on First Footage of Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha S...:

@ZenTurtle They don't need to balance out by making less surf areas; it's one of the main things that is refreshing about Hoenn, especially it being a tropical region and having a bigger sense of exploration because of it and the dive areas, etc. (not that they couldn't add a few more little islands here and there for new stuff) About the main thing they need to do with the surf areas is, hopefully, give us a little more variety in encountered pokémon.

It really bugged me how limited Surfing is in the gens after III; they might as well have taken it out of the dang games(until Azure Bay in XY). We have so many regions revolved around land travel, why can't we just agree to leave Hoenn's ocean alone? sniffle D:



Lalivero commented on First Footage of Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha S...:

Saw this on serebii yesterday and am glad that we will be able to take a first look at the games real soon! I was panicky that we'd have to wait 'til like even later in the month before hearing anything. D:

@Serebii Thanks for posting that because the Japanese release dates, going back, are more accurate to go by. If you go back to '04 like you said, that would've been 2 years from Emerald to DP. Even then, the remakes are more filler so you could argue that they are even more spread out(the 'new' main games) than what it seems.



Lalivero commented on Nintendo Download: 8th May (North America):

@Unca_Lz Well it's not really exciting or new to see titles that have already rereleased a million times, so we'll have to deal with the 'nothing new' complaints anyways as they continue to work with the remainder of the already existing VC. :x

I can see why something like GBA would trickle over time at the start(since it is newer to the VC) but as for what we have previously gotten? :-/

Fortunately, by next gen, this shouldn't be an issue(with the whole integration thing going on and it 'absorbing' what the Wii U has to offer).



Lalivero commented on Nintendo Download: 8th May (North America):

@Tsurii897 Does it really matter though when the VC doesn't have much going for it anyways? I mean barely anything has been done about the backlog that could've been already there and ready(and then systems like N64 don't have much representation as it is...), yet we get GBA?

After this first trickle of GBA games that they spread out, seems very likely that those, too, will slow down like everything else, yet...we have DS games(of all things) coming at some point as well?

The VC is a bit of a mess atm so, with GameCube being one of the last N consoles left to count, might as well throw it in with things to look forward to as well(at least so far without more remakes announced).

@PJR0cks It is a nice game. :)
