LasermasterA commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X Development Details Eme...:

This is going to be absolutely amazing!

After MH4U this is my most hyped up game of the year! Looks absolutely amazing and love the way it carries on the legacy of Xenoblade Chronicles. My body will be ready when it comes out :D



LasermasterA commented on ​Video: A Closer Look at Classic Mode in Etr...:

Hopefully the game has two parallel saves for the Classic and Story mode. I haven't bought Millenium Girl yet, but having to delete one save in order to play the other mode just does not sit well with me.

Game looks great. Obviously graphics are not as great as EOIV but for a remake it looks pretty neat. I really liked EOIV and the SMT game inspired from it (Strange Journey sans map making though), so will definitely get this later. Will last a long long time of JRPG dungeon crawling goodness.



LasermasterA commented on Weirdness: Street Fighter's Ryu is Now Being R...:

This has been confirmed by 2-3 data mining groups. Including the Cutting Floor.

Get ready for some Hadoukens and Shoryukens people!

Since apparently some DLC has been pre-planned, the amount of characters for DLC might be more than people originally anticipated. Hopefully this increases Isaac's chances.



LasermasterA commented on Sales Fall Away in Japan as Xenoblade Chronicl...:

Not surprised about Xenoblade. It might be an absolutely amazing game and one of the best RPGs I have played in some time BUT the Japanese have already played the hell out of it.

Sad to see Rodea the Sky Soldier having such poor sales. I was looking forward to it. Hopefully it performs better overseas.



LasermasterA commented on Review: Mega Man Zero 3 (Wii U eShop / Game Bo...:

The game is absolutely amazing. I am not sure I remember much of 2 (pretty long since I played it) but 3 and 4 were awesome. 1 wasn't THAT great but nice nonetheless. It was the first game so some features weren't perfected.

I would still recommend the Zero Collection on DS though, can't go wrong in having 4 games in one copy. Still have to play ZX Advent though.

I tried the Azure Striker Gunvolt demo and it really reminds me of the Zero games. Not surprising since Inti made the ZX games as well. Although GV is more of a ranged guy and the game isn't as tough damage wise. Slightly faster paced though.



LasermasterA commented on Video: Check Out Every Fire Emblem Intro So Fa...:

Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn all the way. PoR might not have had an amazing opening cinematic, while Radiant Dawn lacked a COMPLETE ending (rushed) and support system. But together, the Tellius Saga was the best I have played.

And that Radiant Dawn opening! Nothing gets close to that!



LasermasterA commented on Gallery: Fresh Xenoblade Chronicles X Footage,...:

Yea foh realz. My award anyway :P They were most human shaped, sleek and bare bones. Certain charm to the design. They can't really fly though.

Not that I don't love the fully kitted out mechs like these. With huge guns, multiple rockets, sometimes huge mech swords and thrusters and what not. Plus they get extra points for the added Transformers like feature of turning into motor vehicles! These designs also have more variety in features.



LasermasterA commented on Gallery: Fresh Xenoblade Chronicles X Footage,...:

Looks amazing. Can't wait to play the game. The environment, the scenery and the Mechs drool

They look amazing. Obviously not the best mech designs I have seen (that prize goes to Evangelion), but the gameplay and exploration options these things will bring will be absolutely amazing!

Plus we can get to see huge monsters like the one in the first trailer!



LasermasterA commented on Former Rare Devs Playtonic Want Donkey Kong Co...:

Well these guys are former Rare devs. Anyway, K. Rool stands a much bigger chance than Banjo Kazooie considering he is owned by Nintendo and all, plus he is the iconic DK villian.

I don't mind getting K. Rool in the game, the guy deserves a chance + DK deserves more reps. Isaac first though :P

Now I just want Camelot to come out and say that they want Isaac to be in the game.



LasermasterA commented on Poll: Which Characters Do You Want to Win the ...:

There are tons of characters I would like to support like Bayonetta, Inkling, K. Rool, Wonder Red, etc. BUT, Isaac from Golden Sun takes priority.

He is a character from my favourite JRPG, has tons of move set potential, and GS has yet to see a character in Smash. It has waited long enough.

#IsaacForSmash #RagnarockTheVote

Plus I get one of my dream matches!




LasermasterA commented on Here’s How the Demon Auction Will Work in Sh...:

Hm this is just the same function as Devil Survivor 1 and its overclocked version, nothing really groundbreaking. Although this way of auction was pretty cool, I used to use the buyout feature before I realized how much money I saved using the auctions. Won 99% of the auctions and got the demons at 3 times less of the buyout price.

Amazing game. Couldn't get into the 2nd Devil Survivor (from what I saw of the game) but I will definitely try out this Overclocked version.



LasermasterA commented on Feature: Gawk at Fancy Super Smash Bros. Mewtw...:

Born in a world of strife!
Against the odds,
we choose to fight!
Blossom Dance!

W00T Dunban costumes! But he is wielding the sword in his right hand! Blasphemy! (He uses his left arm throughout the game)

Plus DLC poll! I can't wait for Isaac time :P



LasermasterA commented on Nintendo Announces Next amiibo Waves And Asks ...:


Do you even need to ask?

Definitely voting for Isaac, the Earth adept, the poster boy of the GS series, the character to have some of the greatest potentials out of 'em all to be an amazing Smash character. Earth psynergy, weapon unleashes, Djinn, potentially other classes and elemental psynergy, Summons, etc. He would be absolutely amazing in Smash.

Heck, he doesn't even need a sword. He can already summon huge psychic swords as Ragnarok and Odyssey!

Voted, now will probably get my sister and as many of my friends to vote!


Plus the amazing GS series could definitely use a rep and the exposure in Smash :)



LasermasterA commented on Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem Wii U Cross...:

That was definitely not how I expected the game would be like, I was expecting more of SMT: Devil Survivor type gameplay. Looks like core SMT, Persona and FE aesthetics combined all in one.

Still hard to see the FE elements, but this definitely has me interested again. Just hoping the game is amazing and we get loads of FE characters.



LasermasterA commented on Video: New Rodea The Sky Soldier Trailer Featu...:

I am getting very interested in this game. Although I would like to get it on the Wii U since the 3DS version has subpar graphics AND might have frame rate issues. Plus all that combat might be hard to take in with a 3DS's screen but I can be wrong on that.

Looking forward to getting a Wii U copy OR in the unlikely scenario a digital 3DS copy.



LasermasterA commented on Poll: Vote For Your Ten Must-Play Games On Nin...:

The Monster Hunter games all the way. They are absolutely amazing games and must plays for sure. Although the game might not suit everyone with its grindy nature and repeated monster killing to farm parts. Heck even I sometimes wonder what I am doing with my time 0.0 I have clocked around 850 hours on MH3U and MH4U combined, having fun all the way and doubting it for only 0.01% of the time.

Etrian Odyssey Legend of the Titan was also an amazing game with great old-school RPG type game, amazing map making and what not. Beat the game, just stuck at the last optional end game boss.

SMT games also are great. A game not mentioned on this SMT: Devil Survivor Overclocked which "technically" is not a new game, but according to me the game was worth it despite finishing the game on DS. The voice acting, new compendium feature, 8th day for 3 routes as well some more Demons really made the game a blast for me. Still have to beat SMTIV though.

No need to say anything about MK7.

To be honest, I still have to play one of the Zelda games on the 3DS....



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 >.<



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

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...:


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.


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