LavaTwilight commented on Nintendo Direct Confirmed for 1st April, With ...:

7/10 - Sure I'm excited but they need to talk about what I want to hear about. A lot of people will want a lot of things. As for me, I hope for more details on Art Academy and Mario Maker - a release date for each please. I'd also love to hear them announce they're working on a new F-Zero. Smash update or even better, new DLC. More info on the new Fire Emblem.
I'd also love to know more about this partnership with DeNA and what Club Nintendo will be about.

8. Virtue's Last Reward
7. Luigi's Mansion 2
6. Mario 3D Land
5. Zelda: MM 3D

As an Optimist I must point out that he never said it won't be released in 2015. He just said a 2015 release is no longer a priority.

Either way... of course it's disappointing but I share everyone's view. why rush brilliance? I'd rather see a game worthy of my time rather than something picked up on the bottom of Epona's shoe!

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

Takamaru would've been kool. As for 'Nintendo' character, I'd have to agree with 9th_Sage and say an Inkling. If anyone argues that's not a Nintendo character then I'll go with Takamaru why not.

As for none-Nintendo, I'd say Simon Belmont! His moveset would be ideal for Smash.

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

@DarkKirby
You can't really say that. I consider myself a hardcore gamer but I revel in Nintendo. I'd say at least 80% of all decent games released today is by Nintendo. I like Nintendo because of the quality. The fact that a game is 'mature', does not make it a 'hardcore gamers' game. Additionally, 3rd party support is dry on nintendo products because they run a different code and programming script to Sony and Msoft. Theirs are very similar and very simple, making games cheap and easy to produce for both consoles simultaneously. I feel Nintendo appeals to hardcore gamers much more than other companies do who seem to appeal more to mature gamers. I'm not saying there aren't other decent companies out there (I'm a big fan of Konami and SquareEnix).
I think the real question is how do we define what a hardcore gamer is. And surely that's a matter of opinion?

LavaTwilight commented on Reaction: The Nintendo 'NX', and Why We Think ...:

This would be pretty awesome but could end up being expensive. If the price is right, that could be a winner. A nintendo phone wouldn't be unlikely tho. Saying that, what's stopping it from being something like the virtualboy, now that technology has improved considerably.

LavaTwilight commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's DeNA Plans and Ideas...:

I loved the Tomb Raider franchise but I was seriously let down by the mobile apps. That never stopped me buying the TR games. It nearly did tho. As long as DeNA don't cop out - and I'm sure Nintendo won't let them - then we don't have to worry about it. Personally, I think it can only do them good.

LavaTwilight commented on Satoru Iwata Emphasizes That There Are "No Exc...:

Dedicated console games and mobile phone games will always remain separate. Console games require in depth play and dedication to seeing it through. Even handheld games have an aspect of that. Mobile phone games though are developed for on-the-go quick-burst play. Sometimes only 5mins at a time. If Nintendo can utilise that they'll do well.

LavaTwilight commented on Nintendo Doesn't Intend To Be A One-Hit Wonder...:

The Legend of Zelda: Angry Cuccos! Anyone else interested?

Seriously though, I think Nintendo have the skill and dedication to pull this off. I have no strong opinions one way or the other as to whether this is a good venture for Nintendo. I just hope it doesn't bankrupt my favourite games developer!

LavaTwilight commented on Talking Point: It's Time for a Nintendo Direct...:

I'd love to see more on the art academy lessons or full AA game. I'm also eager to see more on Mario Maker. 3rd party titles wouldn't go amiss either.

I'd love to see payable DLC for ssb! I understand new characters can be a bit difficult, but new stages surely shouldn't be too hard? I also loved the target smash on Melee, it'll be cool to see each character have their own target smash stage again. More trophies, maybe the trophy game from Brawl making a return... it doesn't have to be a major update but to have added content... I'd pay for that!

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.

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 :)

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.
