LasermasterA commented on Mysterious Murasame Castle's Takamaru Was Cons...:

Isaac from Golden Sun. Before anyone else thinks that he is YET another swordsman, it is possible for him to have a moveset without using his sword (or maybe as a taunt - hint hint Falcondorf).

He is a user of Earth based psynergy and can manipulate the earth for tons of attacks. Plus he could have Water, Fire or Wind based attacks to represent all 4 elements if required to.

He is also well known to a lot of Nintendo fans, was extremely popular and is first party. To be honest, I can still hope considering DLC might still be possible.

Too bad Takamaru couldn't become playable. As a guy who has been waiting for tons of years to get a Golden Sun rep in Smash, I understand what Takamaru supports might be feeling now. Isaac might have have been considered and cancelled as well for all I know (sort of explaining his missing AT).

LasermasterA commented on Satoru Iwata And DeNA CEO Isao Moriyasu Discus...:

As long as Nintendo doesn't make too many mobile games that are also not F2P microtransaction filled rip-offs AND this does not hinder development of games on their consoles (making their release schedule even sparser), I probably won't have a problem with this.

With QoL, these new mobile games. and the already existing 3DS and Wii U, Nintendo, if it deals its cards right, can become really successful again.

LasermasterA commented on Guide: Everything We Know So Far About Nintend...:

To be honest, I didn't expect this with Nintendo continously re-iterating that they would not bring any game software from its IP onto smart devices. Although considering the deal they have made, it may turn out for the best considering there won't be full size titles like on 3DS or Wii U coming out on phones.

Hopefully they are just byte-sized games which appeal to the general public but are small enough to entice curiosity in the main Nintendo consoles. We will have to watch to see how this turns out.

What I don't like is the possibility that Nintendo is going to work on the smartphone games themselves, hence reducing the amount of work done on Wii U and 3DS. Unless DeNA is making the games, this move is not really that great considering the sparse release schedule of the 3DS this year and barely enough games on Wii U.

I like the concept of the uniform online system. Hopefully this can bring the account system we have been asking for so long with purchases possible on PC, phones, etc. using the eShop balance.

NX might just turn out to be a 3DS successor considering the 3DS has been out for 4 years, it has around 2 years till it becomes 6 years old, the typical length of a Nintendo gen.

I am neither on the extremely pleased side or the extremely disappointed side. I will have to wait before I start hating or loving this move. Till then I am on the fence.

LasermasterA commented on Feature: A Summary of the Xenoblade Chronicles...:

The details seen in this presentation have me extremely hyped for XCX.

The game looks amazing, from the environment, huge monsters to the Xenoblade combat which I loved.

The armour and weapon system a la Monster Hunter will definitely make my game a run a lot longer than intended! I don't mind the somewhat less graphics in character models as long as the game is amazing!

Hope this game comes out soon!

LasermasterA commented on First Run Wii U Copies of Rodea the Sky Soldie...:

Looks great.

I don't mind the graphics of the game, and I liked what I saw in the trailer. Plus 2 different copies of one game would be a nice bonus,

That will make it easy to see the differences between the Wii U and the Wii version and how much has been changed/overhauled.

LasermasterA commented on Nintendo Unleashes Video Guides for Monster Hu...:

The game is amazing and it is nice that Nintendo has uploaded video guides. Would be nice for beginners.

Gore Magala is somewhat of a pain though, less in solo player where he is a breeze but less so in Guild where is buffed.

Just one annoyance: no keyboard chatting during quest >.<

@seb5049
Definitely. The game just starts after the boss because the main fun starts at High Rank as you get to fight many more monsters, more elder dragons, etc. The most part of the game is in G rank though definitely with Low Rank and High rank just as steps to reach G.

Although one complaint is that low rank is too easy but I guess High rank will make up for it. You know it is too easy when the storyline main boss falls in 10 minutes and other monsters in 7-8 minutes. Atleast the Advanced Quests are tough.

LasermasterA commented on The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D and Mons...:

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is amazing. It definitely deserves to outsell MH3U considering all the new stuff it brings to the table. Vertical combat, 2 new weapons, revisions to monsters, faster gameplay and snappier graphics. The only downside is the slow loading rate on the original 3DS.

In the first 25 hours I am definitely impressed and ready for more. Yet to go online though. Considering I have clocked 700 hours in MH3U (and more later on - I am not done with it yet!), MH4U could easily last me the whole year.

Obviously I am still excited for future Wii U releases but for now Monster Hunter is enough for me :)

LasermasterA commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate has Shipped Over 3 M...:

I have been playing MH4U non-stop (before which I was playing MH3U non-stop) and I must say that the game is amazing. The game took a while to adjust to considering I was coming out of an MH3 phase but the game is definitely awesome. The vertical combat adds a lot to the gameplay plus the game is faster paced (storyline wise). I also love the new weapons the Charge Blade and now the Insect Glaive which adds so many possibilities to combat. I have a normal 3DS XL and I am using the CPP, and I don't really mind the absence of super stable 3D (don't like 3D much) or Miiverse. The CPP being awesome is an added bonus.

Still have to go online though. I hope the next Monster Hunter is also on Nintendo consoles, even if it is not exclusive.

LasermasterA commented on Nintendo Download: 12th February (North America):

Getting a digital copy of Monster Hunter. Before I go in a cave (wifi enabled) on a mountain to play it, I must wait for the game to come out on the eShop!

Atleast MM3D had a nice midnight launch whereas I am still waiting for Monster Hunter to become purchasable.

LasermasterA commented on Review: Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate (3DS):

The game sounds better each passing moment. Can't wait to grab my download copy. I would love physical but I also love having my game on the go and ready to load.

And to people worrying about camera control, the game is perfectly playable with the touchscreen d-pad as the camera control. Especially since this game does not feature water combat, the combination of auto lock-on and the dpad camera will work perfectly.

I myself clocked more than 400 hours with this combination before I finally bought a CPP to experience better camera control (mainly water) and to save my L and R buttons from giving out.

LasermasterA commented on Video: Capcom Explains Why Monster Hunter 4 Ul...:

The game was perfectly fine without the Circle Pad Pro XL. I played more than 400 hours with just the touch screen d-pad and the auto lock feature.

I did buy the CPP later as my shoulder buttons were taking quite a beating plus I wanted to try out a second circle pad. It did make the game better but did not have much of a difference in land combat. It was the underwater combat where it made a bigger difference, which has now been removed. Although I really like the CPP, seems more ergonomic to my hands plus the extra shoulder buttons as well as some protection it does offer to the 3DS.

I hope the next handheld console has a full on 2nd circle pad rather than the "C-stick" we will get now. Till then, I will stick to my 3DS XL and CPP XL combo for MH3U and 8 days later, MH4U!

LasermasterA commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Director Discusses M...:

Sounds like a great thing, the monsters behave pretty realistically, barring a few exceptions where some oddities do occur.

Loved all the games in the series from Monster Hunter Freedom, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, Portable 3rd (translated) and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.
Only 10 more days to go till MH4U!

LasermasterA commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Sales Meet Capcom Ex...:

I am definitely waiting with bated breath for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. The series is absolutely amazing. To be honest, I could be very addicted to Monster Hunter considering I am unable to stop playing MH3U on 3DS and completing all the armours solo, while waiting for the next game to come out. Just completed all G-rank quests, now to forge all the weapons!

Time consuming, but fun!

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will definitely take it up a notch considering it has built in online!

LasermasterA commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

Radiant Dawn and Path of Radiance together would be amazing. Path of Radiance does not use the analogue buttons of the GC controller in a way that couldn't be configured to the Wii U Gamepad. Plus since the Wii mode CAN technically run GC games, I don't see why they can't release games without specific analogue trigger function onto the eShop.

If they would release the Tellius series (preferably with the PoR saves to Radiant Dawn function available), I would buy them in an instant. They have been my favourite FE games and they could be given the spotlight again, since the newest FE is for the 3DS again.

Plus with only Radiant Dawn, it would be difficult to follow the storyline. RD after all continues from the ending of PoR.

LasermasterA commented on Poll: Nintendo's Year of Adventure on Wii U an...:

@Grumblevolcano

Yea there were some achievements for dying "n" number of times. And the last one required too many deaths so I got bored of deliberately killing myself at the superboss (everyone was level 99 so only it could do it fast enough)

Then revive party members (after they died) this many times.

And finally kill 5000+ something enemies.

I left these 3 achievements alone, did everything else, beat all superbosses, got amazing equipment and finished my game.

Edit: And one more. Get wiped out (everyone dead, respawn at last landmark) many many times.

LasermasterA commented on Poll: Nintendo's Year of Adventure on Wii U an...:

Out of all 4 of them, definitely Xenoblade Chronicles X. I like Legend of Zelda but I like RPGs like Xenoblade even more.

I am not even considering Xenoblade Chronicles 3D because
1) I am not buying a new New Nintendo 3DS anytime soon
2) I already beat Xenoblade 99.9% (the 0.1% were stupid achievements like die 1000s of times or something)

Xenoblade Chronicles X looks amazing and can't wait to try it out! Considering the original took 160 hours for full completion, I can't wait to see how long and awesome Xenoblade X is. Plus the game looks amazing (except the character models) and bigger than ever.

And controllable and transformable Mechas! :)

Still looking forward to Zelda U and Majora's Mask 3D as well though. But if Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate was in the poll it would have definitely taken the crown.

MH4U >>>>> others

LasermasterA commented on Hands On: We Check Out The New Nintendo 3DS XL :

The New Nintendo 3DS XL looks amazing but I don't think I will purchase one either. Plus I don't think Nintendo will want to fragment their userbase with system sellers as N3DS exclusives.

We will probably get more ports like Xenoblade Chronicles.

I just hope that games that have that C-stick support include CPP support. NOT like what they did with Smash 3DS.

Thank goodness MH4U still supports the CPP. Not that I really need it much with water combat gone but still better than the touchscreen d-pad.

@sinalefa

The issue was only present in the regular sized 3DS. So our XLs are safe from getting scratches that way :)

@Falk_Sturmfels
Yea it is pretty long. I managed to get my hands on the Wii U version of the game for a bit of local play with my sister and online play but now that I am back at university, I have only the 3DS version at hand. Trying to get to HR 100, at 89 now. 999 would be an absolute pain for one to achieve solo.

Trying to solo Alatreon solo as well as some other event quests. Thank goodness MH4U has online otherwise would have taken 100s of hours again. This time I can spend that time killing tons of monsters online :)

LasermasterA commented on Capcom Outlines Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Loca...:

Well if the tutorials are short, I can get Monster Hunting even faster! Can't wait for MH4U especially now that online is in the 3DS version. Atleast I won't have to struggle to complete all G rank quests and get to HR 80 all by myself again :)

Plus I hope to get the demo soon, hear that it has local play. Would be useful to entice my currently uninterested friends to the franchise.

Funnily enough Lyndis is not even the central character of the whole game but is still considered the face of Blazing Sword.

Still the game was awesome and the first of the awesome FE franchise to make it outside Japan. Too bad we never got an official port of The Binding Blade/Sealed Sword.

LasermasterA commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2015:

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate no doubt. That game is going to steal 100s of hours of my life. MH3U on the 3DS was an amazing experience and getting the Wii U version lately after completing all G quests, I am having even more fun than before online!

Can't wait to play online as well as local on MH4U. Or just lone wolf it out :)

Also I would love to play Majora's Mask 3D as well as Project S.T.E.A.M! This year is definitely going to be busy with great releases on the 3DS and Wii U together!

I am most hyped up for Xenoblade Chronicles X. I absolutely loved the original game and this one looks amazing! Can't wait to get some of my RPG fix with that!

Also Devil's Third seems interesting considering it is Itagaki's first venture after he left Team Ninja. Considering NG3 was a relative train-wreck (Razor's Edge at-least solved some problems), I am hoping this newer different game turns out awesome.

LasermasterA commented on Review: Mega Man Zero (Wii U eShop / Game Boy ...:

Well the bad thing is that you can't even form subtanks if you want to have a good rating. Last time I played Megaman Zero, the only elves I used were the subtank elves. I made them just before the last boss fight. After I beat the game, my rating which had been at A was dropped to F. And it was stuck at F during a hard new game+ >.<.

Yeah I didn't replay it that time. Regretted making those subtanks.

@unrandomsam

Hmm. I have heard that the collection mainly just picks 'em up and puts them all in a single cartridge. Same games, no bottom screen usage.

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

@Einherjar
Cosma? Well it does make sense considering her origins.

I agree. Localization should keep names intact if possible cause otherwise things get complicated. An easy example is Isaac of GS himself who was Robin in Japanese, Isaac in English whereas Robin of Awakening is Robin in English and Reflet in Japanese. It is indeed confusing.

I hope we get a trio set of Ace Attorney Investigations 1 & 2 (the second which never got localized) and Justice for All to have all of the Ace Attorney games on the 3DS. If not, I guess I will have to try out the fan translation of Ace Attorney Investigations 2.

LasermasterA commented on Review: Mega Man Zero (Wii U eShop / Game Boy ...:

Great game, great score.

This is just the first game which was a bit unpolished around the edges with the cyber elves mechanism and grinding being a bit extreme. The sequel Megaman Zero really deals away with most problems and introduces Forms and all. Can't wait for the whole series to get around on the eShop. The whole series had great quality. And great fun. But it is indeed hard to maintain a rank above B, especially if you die once or use a cyber elf.

Oh I didn't notice that this trilogy did not include the already translated European languages. I guess that is a bummer since the translations already do exist.

Same with the case you mentioned for the Camelot games. Wait so what were Isaac and Felix called in German?

Can't wait. I absolutely loved Devil Survivor and its overclocked version. So much that I played the original 4 times and its enhanced version 4 times as well!

My sister didn't like DeSu2 as much as one, but hopefully this version trumps that and is good. Although $50 does sound a bit steep for the digital version.

LasermasterA commented on Capcom's Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Infographic...:

Wow! Can't wait for this game. Recently I killed the last monster in MH3U on 3DS, killing the abyssal lagiacrus at last! Just have to get some more armour and I would have done 500+ hours solo.

This looks great. Especially the huge monster, finally a monster that is colossal (as big as an island) after that one monster in Frontier!

I might just buy the Wii U version to get a taste of online before I get MH4U.

I just hope this news is not true. I love both the series and really want to try this game out. Especially if it plays somewhat like the tactical SMT RPG Devil Survivor Overclocked.

Since this is from 4chan, I doubt its authenticity.
