Seems pretty good actually and the price is right lol. Might be worth trying in lieu of any other Mother/Earthbound games.
I'm surprised Nintendo has done nothing with the franchise since their constant inclusion in Smash. Let's hope we see a new one released.

LavaTwilight commented on Nintendo's Wii U TVii Service is Formally Canc...:

Shame! I, for one, was looking forward to the TVii service. Although it wasn't a system seller, it was one reason I was looking forward to the WiiU. I find the anime channel "peace offering" (NintendoLife's words) frustrating as for the reason they cited. I don't intend on downloading it to the 3DS as it'll take up needed space and i'll never intend to watch it there. I'd want it for the WiiU. I hope they bring it to the WiiU in due course.

LavaTwilight commented on Poll: Which Nintendo Franchises Should be Prod...:

How about a pokemon cartoon? Lol, j/k. But seriously im surprised Earthbound isn't there. I think that'd make a great tv cartoon series, despite not being terribly impressed with the game (though it was enjoyable). Or is it already?

LavaTwilight commented on Poll: As amiibo Expands and Evolves, Which Fea...:

At least Nintendo are compensating for requiring multiple r/w data for certain figures. They could've made it so u had to buy the same mario for each game, but now you can buy one design for smash and one for mario party. No one can justifiably say it's a money-making gimmick, cuz if that were true they'd just have the one design and produced mario. I wish I had the finance to get these amiibo. I'll have to just settle for a select few methinks!

LavaTwilight commented on Weirdness: The Secret History of Princess Zelda:

So Zeldas is really Captain Falcon? Ganondorf lives inside a musical instrument? The amiibo are only inspired by Nintendo? Well I never knew any of that. And I thought her part of the triforce was of Wisdom. Ganondorf of Power... instead her part of the triforce contains the power of knowledge! Sounds like our friends at Tesco could be doing with some of that!

LavaTwilight commented on New Mario Maker Footage Shows Off Multi-Genera...:

I see a lot of people saying they'd rather have a new mario game... I do not think this game is what you think it is. It's an amazing way for us to design our own mario levels, if that's not ur choice of game so be it.

One of my biggest concerns for this was the size of levels you could create, judging by the e3 demonstration. Looking at what they've shown now it looks like my concerns are assuaged! Bigger level designs means more creativity!!! Different themes too, bowsers castle, underwater levels, obviously more will come too, and then giant enemies... this is already fleshing out nicely!

As for Mario 2 graphics, it's very unlikely if not nigh impossible as it's rarely recognised as being canonical. Using Luigi, Toad or Peach as playable characters would be really good to have!!! As well as the option of having Yoshi. He may be harder to do tho unless they put a block on him being used when on Mario 1 or Mario 3 graphics.

LavaTwilight commented on Feature: How We'd Like to See amiibo Used in C...:

Those are really good ideas and not sure what else to suggest.

Figurines with DLC locked within them (as opposed to downloading from the eshop). Although I disagree that Toad and Toadette can't be used in Smash. What if they were to become extra DLC for Smash? Unlock Toadette to add to the roster etc... or a special Captain Treasure Tracker battle stage. Maybe just to unlock a trophy each.

A 2-player mode exclusive to those who have one or 2 of the figurines might be a bit limited. Although 2-player could be offered as a simple free DLC via the e-shop but the figurines enhances the 2player experience by offering additional levels/modes etc.

For Treasure Tracker, existing amiibo prob wont be used much more than unlocking aesthetic or useful extras.

I'd love to see Toad/Toadette costumes for Mario Kart :)

LavaTwilight commented on Feature: These Are The Mario Kart 8 DLC Packs ...:

I'd like to see Zelda take up the wheel now that Link has. Also a return of Diddy Kong and Dry Bones.

For courses, again, it's gotta be Wario Coliseum from DD! I'd love to see a new course in the vein of a Mario Galaxy-style planet and for a fourth there should be a new ghost mansion, in the same style as the SNES version (as opposed to Luigi's mansion style).

New vehicles, meh not bothered but it'll be kool for them to have a new style of racing... Double Dash style :)

LavaTwilight commented on Preview: Power Sliding Around The Legend of Ze...:

I still haven't got this yet, mostly due to not having internet anymore but I'll be able to pick this up sometime a week after the first pack is released... I hope I still get the different coloured Yoshis, there's nothing to say I won't.

I really really hope to see Wario Coliseum (from Double Dash) in the next DLC with some serious anti-grav upgrades! I'd be disappointed if it's not but O well. I also would love to see a 'Rainbow Cup' which holds 4 of the Rainbow Road tracks currently elusive from Mario Kart 8. Maybe also have the arcade versions of Mario Kart in the next DLC? I hope they're not finished with it yet, they could do a lot with this game!

LavaTwilight commented on Talking Point: The Majora's Mask 3D Reveal Sho...:

My particular problem is that I just simply don't have the money to get what I want from Nintendo. There's too much on offer and not enough to purchase it with. Smash Bros is probably top of my list but I won't hold back on the Mario Kart DLC, Mario Maker, Art Academy and a few indie titles. Not to mention Amiibo as and when I can.

LavaTwilight commented on Tournament Players Pass Judgement On 8-Player ...:

I don't think they're the future of the franchise but I do think it'll make more of an impact on events than the other features do. It'll definitely draw in a crowd. I just wonder if the new smash will have the same effect that Melee did, the same hectic fast-paced action that was somewhat lacking in Brawl.

LavaTwilight commented on Feature: Five 'New Things' We Want in Super Sm...:

I voted for more amiibo but in all honesty DLC wouldn't go amiss either. I'll just be very surprised if they announced it.
I was surprised when Brawl removed the tournament mode. It was almost my favourite mode in Melee and one I used often, even if there were just the 2 or 3 of us playing.
I think my number one hoped for thing in this Direct though will be a decent stage editor. Even if the stage editor is an optional paid-for DLC I'd still love to see it and I'd still pay for it. Brawl's was amazing despite what people said, and I loved recreating the stages from the N64 version of Smash (where possible).

LavaTwilight commented on Masahiro Sakurai Gives a Glimpse of Super Smas...:

Knowing Sakurai (and I don't) then it'll probably reveal that it's Monsieur Duck-hunt Dog and then he'll go on to reveal a new character anyway.

It'll be awesome to have new characters but I keep remember him saying both versions will have the exact same characters sooo... not sure what to think.

LavaTwilight commented on Yoshi Circuit From Double Dash!! Makes A Comeb...:

I suppose that makes sense considering all the Yoshi's everywhere. I'm still hoping Wario Coliseum from the NGC will also be making a comeback here! Can you imagine that course in anti-gravity? Awesomenessness!

I'm surprised they didn't do something with the anti-gravity here on Yoshi's circuit but nvm.

LavaTwilight commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Live Nintendo Dire...:

For everyone hoping for new characters, I hate to be the voice of reason but come on... I'd love new characters too but Sakurai said very early on that both games will have the same characters, just different levels.
Of course there's always a chance he can come back with a shock for us but we can't expect it.

So don't get upset if there's no new characters... ye have been warned.

LavaTwilight commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Live Nintendo Dire...:

@jariw

That's kool and 50 new things not in the 3DS version is a good interpretation of it. My comment though was more about where they were getting this 50 'NEW' things from. You said it was Nintendo's facebook post which is good enough for me.
I follow them on FB but I really don't go on FB enough to know that. Thanks for explaining where they got the 'new' from. Can't wait to see what's new :)

LavaTwilight commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Live Nintendo Dire...:

Unless NintendoLife have a source other than what's here and what's linked, it doesn't say 50 NEW things, it says 50 MUST SEE things. I'd love 50 new things but I can't imagine it'll be all completely previously-unrevealed stuff. I'll be tuning in to see what's there though! I want to keep the game as much of a surprise as possible but I just can't resist watching this :)

LavaTwilight commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Amazon Listing Say...:

@KiwiPanda

I'm pretty angry at this but I know you mean the staff at Nintendo. Esp over their excuse over not having a solo-player akin to SSE.

I still like what I hear though and as @StephenYap3 stated, I'll prefer to see it from Sakurai himself. I hope they release a NDirect soon. I have so much going on in my life now but I can squeeze in 15mins a day of SSB... I know I can. I have to!

@smashbrolink
It's in the main article.
Satoru Iwata - JAPAN

You want a Nintendo game, you buy a Nintendo console. That is how things work.

Please understand.

I suppose there's no guarantee that is the real Satoru Iwata, but if it's not, the person who posted that has done a really good job at emulating Iwata's demeanor, it's exactly how he would've responded.

LavaTwilight commented on Weirdness: Sony Fan Creates Petition In Hope O...:

There's no denying that the 3DS is 'underpowered' but there's also different degrees of power. Clearly, it hasn't stopped it from outselling the Vita on almost every level (if not every level).
And besides that, if he's a sony fanboy, then why is he even making a comment like this? I bought the Xbox for one game only! Toejam & Earl 3. I played a few others but quickly tired of it! I then sold it and haven't had the need to buy another Xbox console.
If he wants Smash Bros so bad, he should buy Smash Bros. Kudos to Iwata-san for being dignified to respond to such a comment but seriously kid... you need to realise how these things work!

LavaTwilight commented on Super Smash Bros. Fans Teased Further by New M...:

One is no doubt harder than the other, but that won't make the 'master' option 'easy'. Just 'not-as-difficult'. I'm hoping for a solid single-player experience. I doubt we'll see anything as good as SSE of SSBB but I'm hoping for something at least. Still disappointed that Tabuu isn't an optional fighter in this.

LavaTwilight commented on Captain Toad's Joined by Toadette in Treasure ...:

It's nice to see Toadette appearing in a game outside Mario party and Mario kart, and the like. I had this one down as a "cute, but no thank you". Now it's looking a lot better. Saying that, I have to make sure time permits me to justify buying this game.

LavaTwilight commented on Masahiro Sakurai Shows Off amiibo Interface in...:

I'm intent on buying them all but my wife is not keen on the idea. Apparently I shouldn't "play" with "toys" and that she would "divorce" me if I bought them all. Either way I have to get Link so she'll have to just "deal" with it.

LavaTwilight commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2014 - Fal...:

OK I admit I kinda lied on this one. SSB is my most anticipated WiiU title by far but I knew it would be the top one by far (actually with it just shy of 50% at time of writing, I'm surprised; I expected it to do better).

So I voted for Art Academy.

My next choice would've been Trine and I have my eyes on Toad and Watch Dogs. Saying that can anyone tell me if it's true that Watch Dogs are only using the gamepad as a map? That's even more of a blow than the lack of DLC because that's what the WiiU should be offering above all else!
