lex0plex commented on Assassin's Creed Creator Fired From Ubisoft Le...:
lex0plex commented on Feature: Celebrating Ten Years of The Wind Waker:
One of my favourite things about this game was the combat. Zelda never was as fun to fight before or after this game.
lex0plex commented on Talking Point: An Open Letter To Nintendo:
The Wii U was the first Nintendo system I haven't bought at launch. I think the only thing that is holding Nintendo back, is that they're only willing to "innovate" the market and not follow trends (Microsoft ans Sony are doing the opposite). If they were to combine both, Nintendo would flourish once again. Lay down your pride Nintendo and use some of the good ideas other developers are doing. They're stealing your ideas after all.
lex0plex commented on The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD:
New games instead of remakes! That's what I want to see!
Whaaat? Unfinished dungeons? Why have I never heard of this must google search now so curious
lex0plex commented on Nintendo Gives US Government Recommendations o...:
lex0plex commented on Nintendo Power Magazine Will End With December...:
Maybe there is something you guys can do at NintendoLife? Like hire some of the writers for Nintendo Power and make this website even more amazing!
lex0plex commented on First Impressions: Rayman Legends:
@rjejrMe thinks it's just Wii U. Like how there are many fish in the sea, not fishes.
lex0plex commented on Miyamoto Talks Down Idea of 3DS Redesign:
Actually, I can see a handheld in Nintendo's future that works like the WiiU Gamepad (but with whatever will follow the WiiU) except that you can bring it anywhere. Games are soon going to be an entirely software experience and the 3DS and WiiU already share so many games... they just need to bridge the gap, graphically speaking.
lex0plex commented on First Impressions: Pikmin 3:
Not a big fan of the Rock Pikmin either... I hope they don't have an onion and are only used on occasion. I did like the Purple Pikmin though! They're the ones who should have an onion! Why don't they just bring those guys back instead?
lex0plex commented on E3 2012: Nintendo Direct Live:
Why would you auto complete the word "My"? lol
lex0plex commented on Feature: How Nintendo Can Win E3:
It's more like winning the crowd over. Nintendo has to prove that owning their new system will be a effin' awesome!
lex0plex commented on Talking Point: Lessons to be Learned from WiiW...:
Yeah, if the certification process really takes so long, then why do so many terrible games make it on Wiiware? Doesn't make sense man...
I know apple devices don't have a great game selection compared to 3DS, but their online system seems to work very well. Nintendo has always been a great leader of the game industry. For them to continue to do well, they must learn to follow too.
lex0plex commented on Super Mario 3D Land Director Shares Level Desi...:
Haha yeah. I just know Nintendo could have done better (more suits, bigger home world, different textures than the galaxy games, multiplayer, and other online stuff, just to name a few)
"Super Mario 3D Land has been the recipient of critical acclaim"
Man, what am I missing? Am I the only one who thought it was just all right? OK that's it, I'm playing this again to try and figure out what was so damn special about it.
lex0plex commented on Feature: The Super Mario Renaissance:
@ScraftyI agree. Super Mario 3D is definitely not a masterpiece. I really felt like that game is a whole bunch of copypasta. Nothing really new and way too easy. Though, I thought it was a decent length and the 3D effects were cool. Did you play through the second 8 levels?
My favourite Mario game has to be Super Mario Sunshine. That game never gets enough credit. It was the perfect balance between platforming and exploration. Also fludd was way too much fun! I hope the next big Mario game for Wii U is a platforming, adventure RPG with level ups and unique abilities. That would be amazing!
lex0plex commented on Talking Point: Is Wii U's Power Really That Im...:
everyone should already be using light based metatronics
lex0plex commented on Mobile Dev: "Iwata Makes Me Fear for Nintendo'...:
The way freemium games would work on a Nintendo console is if they combined the demos with the retail game available to buy after the first level(s).
lex0plex commented on Mario Party 9 is Coming Up the UK Charts:
That's a very good idea! They should do that for Mario Party X.
lex0plex commented on Assassin's Creed III is Coming to Wii U:
I was a huge fan of the Prince of Persia games, but never got the chance to play Assassin's creed all the way through. I think I'll get this if it looks good! Thank you Ubisoft!
lex0plex commented on Nintendo Japan Reveals Cobalt Blue 3DS Console:
I was totally fine with my black one until I saw this! I agree, this is the blue that should have been released at launch!
lex0plex commented on Wii U Controller Originally Had Proper Analogu...:
I don't understand how you are supposed to play games with this device and the Wii controller. Nintendo said they weren't going to go back to button based Zelda games right? So will there be more than one controller option to play Zelda WiiU?
I think a better alternative would be to make the old Wii controller obsolete and go back to traditional button gaming, or have an entirely new motion based controller with 2 analogue sticks and a touch screen on the Nunchuk part. Maybe it could even snap together to form the Wii U controller...
My crude sketch: http://img841.imageshack.us/img841/5480/97435940.png (there are so many problems with this I know...)
I hate that there are so many friggin' controllers! Please Nintendo, just make one really nice one that works for every game!
lex0plex commented on Miyamoto Focused on New Franchises:
@JayArrDidn't you hear? Miyamoto hacks RL.
@ThomasBW84Don't listen to them. This is very interesting to me and it's good to write follow-up articles. I actually forgot about this so it's good to hear it again. Haters gonna hate.
lex0plex commented on Nintendo May Not Call Wii U a Home Console:
An Electronic Device.
lex0plex commented on Pikmin 3:
wow lotsa fans... I like pikmin a lot too... yeah fun game
lex0plex commented on Join the Official Nintendo Life Mario Kart 7 C...:
Aw i just got this game and no one is playing???
lex0plex commented on Wahoo, It's a Mario Party 9 Trailer:
At 1:08, what the heck are they doing? are they trying to tackle each other or something?
BTW I personally am excited for the new game play in the car. It seems like a fresh idea so don't knock it before you try it!
lex0plex commented on Rayman Origins 3DS Has No Multiplayer:
This game is hilarious! Buy the Wii version if you got friends, buy this one if ya don't!
lex0plex commented on Rumour: Wii U "Twice as Powerful as Xbox 360":
My guess is that although it will be powerful and pretty, it will be less powerful than xbox720 and ps4. And as usual people will focus on that instead of the positive aspects of the system.
lex0plex commented on Review: Puppies World 3D (3DS):
I always hated it when I got a bunch of rip-off games like this for xmas when I was younger... I don't blame my parents, they don't know the difference, but companies that do this should not be allowed to release their games! Doesn't Nintendo have the power?
lex0plex commented on Sakurai: Next Smash Bros. "May Take a While":
I still play Brawl now and then so It's all good
lex0plex commented on Europe Joins the Mario Party on 2nd March:
I kind of hoped they'd wait until the Wii U, but I'm still gonna get this right away! The car and boss battles should make an interesting addition... Consider me psyched!
lex0plex commented on Nintendo Reveals More Dates for Zelda Concert ...:
wow that's a long time to wait. oh well!
lex0plex commented on Game of the Year: Nintendo Life Staff Awards 2011:
RAYMAN ORIGINS IS AWESOME!!! Its even better co-op and the character animations are hilarious!
lex0plex commented on Resident Evil Revelations:
i bet there will things that jump out and scare you. 3d would work well for that.
3rd image: zombie crack lol
lex0plex commented on Out Now: Nintendo 3DS Ambassador GBA Games:

EDIT: nvr got into fire emblem but can't wait to!
lex0plex commented on Feature: Further Adventures in Scanlines: The ...:
hmm interesting... I see the appeal and understand its nostalgia, but to me the images on the left look better. Probably have to see it to get a better idea.
lex0plex commented on Learn the Story of CRUSH 3D In This Trailer:
For some reason this reminds me of Harry Potter. Maybe its the robe that he's wearing...
lex0plex commented on Nintendo: Miyamoto Is Not Stepping Down:
This is good news! especially that last sentence, can't wait for some more original gaming goodness!
lex0plex commented on Japan Buys Half a Million Copies of Super Mari...:
@prycehaha that vid made me laugh despite your obvious dig.
There is more than Nintendo out there and many people (including me) only have enough spending money to buy 9/10 rated games regardless of the system. Usually on a Nintendo console, that means it was developed by Nintendo, which means it is probably a well known franchise.
I was just saying that Nintendo should continue to broaden the types of games they make. I wasn't referring to 3rd party developers. Don't get me wrong I do hope the games you mentioned turn out well!
After finishing Super Mario 3D Land, I'm sad to say that I was a little disappointed. It was fun, a decent length and challenging (near the end), but I couldn't help but feel like the concept was extremely stale.
And even though the difficulty picked up around world S7/S8, I still beat game with 150+ lives stored up. What is the point of lives when the game saves after every level? Nintendo is living in the past and played it too safe with this game.
As fun as Mario and Zelda games are, nothing would leave more of an impression on Nintendo fans and the gaming community if the 3DS wasn't just a system that got a whole bunch of remakes, but a system that brought entirely new concepts and games to the table. I can't think of one 3DS game (at the moment) that isn't a remake or sequel...
lex0plex commented on Aonuma: "We'll See" About Zelda Voice Acting:
I agree with Popyman, a made -up language would fill in the silent subtitles, and give more personality to all the characters. Link should stay silent though.
lex0plex commented on Luigi's Mansion 2 is Not Multiplayer After All:
@21Wow you life must be freaking amazing then...
lex0plex commented on Circle Pad Pro Hits Europe in January 2012:
I'm not buying any add-ons for my 3DS. Next year I guarantee they will release a 3DS lite or something similar with 2 circles pads and longer battery life all built in. The price of this accessory, the battery pack accessory and the $ I get from selling my current 3DS will pay for most of the upgraded system. I can wait
lex0plex commented on Explore Above the Clouds in New Skyward Sword ...:
@ 9Too bad, your missing out
lex0plex commented on Nintendo of America's Zelda Room is Awesome:
I like the rupee pillows! I wonder if I can order them anywhere...
lex0plex commented on New Harvest Moon: First Earth 3DS Videos Ripen Up:
@13,14,15,16,17Wow lots to choose from. I don't have the old DS or GBA, but I want to try Friends of Mineral Town since it's a handheld (like this 3D one). I`ll buy this one if it gets good reviews. Thanks!
If I were to jump right into the series now, what game should I start with or does it matter?
Never been interested in the series before, but I still want to know more. Don't knock it before you try it, right?
