Re: Review: Golden Sun: The Lost Age (Wii U eShop / Game Boy Advance)

LightSamus

This game is fantastic, I remember playing #1 and hitting that abrupt "to be continued..." and thinking WHAT!? ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? Then #2 just raised the bar so much.

I was keen for another entry to the series for so long. I was so happy with the announcement of Dark Dawn and brought it on release. I was enjoying it so much until I got to that mountain you are seeking the entire game and decided I would go back and find any djinn I had missed, when I realized you couldn't back-track and if have to start again entirely I turned off my DS and haven't been able to bring myself to play it again, I was so annoyed.

Re: Nintendo Direct: New Nintendo 3DS Models Coming to Australia and New Zealand on 21st November

LightSamus

We usually get pretty screwed over for gaming. But every once in a while we get a gem like this. Thanks Nintendo AU, thanks so much! Shovel Knight and Gunvolt in the eShop don't even have release dates for Australia yet.

When I brought the 3DS on Launch it was original $300, so $215 feels okay to me. I hope we are able to transfer eShop titles or I won't be getting it though..

Re: Review: Mario Tennis (3DS eShop)

LightSamus

I don't really understand how the VC works on a programmable level, or how connectivity between the 3DS and WIIU works.

But it sure would be nice, if I could download Mario Tennis 64 from the WiiU eShop, and transfer the custom characters etc. I mean if I can do it on a computer with emulation, come on Nintendo, that sort of extra service for fans is what makes you a hero to us.

Re: iPhone Gaming Controller Could Mean "The End Of Nintendo", Claims Investment Site

LightSamus

People keep saying that moblie phone games are going to ruin nintendo, but any serious gamer will tell you casual loving games of angry birds or candy crush saga don't match up to full adventure titles such as Pokemon, Monster Hunter, Mario and Luigi Dream Team or Link Between Worlds.

And that's exactly who those examples are aimed at, actual gamers

Re: Male Wii Fit Trainer Revealed as Latest Smash Bros. Challenger

LightSamus

So here's my opinion, costume changes should be more then just a "costume".

Remember in Melee how Mario and Dr. Mario had the same animation but the properties of attacks differed slightly? (trajectories of the hit opponent were different between the two Marios)

I think a costume change should also change a characters properties in that respect, maybe Female Trainer has a meteor hit on a particular move, but Male Trainer has it on a different move (Such as a downstrike meteor for one, and a upwards/sideways meteor for the other). Adding to the strats on how to play a particular character. I think that'd be awesome..

Re: Wii U Software Storage on USB Devices Detailed

LightSamus

@SteveW I don't think it's about capability. I think it's about making sure that privacy's more difficult on the Wii U, If the Wii U is playing games directly from a USB port, out of the box, it'll only be easier for the pirating geniuses running non-purchased games from USBs in no time.

Re: E3 2012: Miyamoto Talks Zelda Wii U Experiments

LightSamus

I think some people on this page need to learn the difference between "HD" and "better graphics". Seriously some of the posts just make people look very naive. W
ith emulation on a computer NSMBW and Skyward Sword can both be output in High Definition resolution, it doesn't magically make the poly count of models and texture look a lot better, it just renders at a higher resolution.

Re: Pokémon Black & White Version 2 Announced

LightSamus

I've said this since the 3rd Gen games when I was 13 in 2003. They should release a full "catch 'em all" Pokemon, without the grid-movement, get rid of turn based battling and have real time 3D movement battles. It would make the combat so much more fun if the AI was tough. Rather then this, "Okay I'll hit you, lol your turn to hit me"

Re: Talking Point: The Future of Pokémon

LightSamus

People don't ever seem to agree, but I think the battle system needs a complete reboot. I know a lot of calculations and strategy goes into but Turn-Based fighting has never really been my thing, "I hit you-you hit me" attitude has always bothered me, special when the show doesn't really follow the same system most of the time. "some uses an attack, ash: lol dodgey it pikachu " ... I've always wanted proper control of a pokemon, real-time battling with attacking and dodgeing at will. If done well it would be very fun

Re: Aonuma: "We'll See" About Zelda Voice Acting

LightSamus

I think if they do two things need to happen, Link must remain silent but everyone else has a voice. If they have a conversation with Link they can "hear him" much like his text never comes up. And of course it needs to be optional on or off. Some people want it, other don't - it needs to be an option if it happens.

Re: Regional eShops Will Continue to Offer Different Content

LightSamus

@90 couldn't agree more, I always get excited hearing 3DS news, it just sucks to log on and feel, "oh, I guess it's just a USA-only thing"
I really REALLY wish we could have more 3DS game trailers, and as a huge movie enthusiastic, I want 3D movie trailers.

I mean, only if a few people want them, it's not exactly costing them a big bunch of money to put them up there is it?

Re: Review: The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX (Game Boy Color)

LightSamus

when the colour gameboy came out when I was around 8 or 9 I was given it and this Zelda for my birthday. I was completed in love with it! When I first beat the game, i didn't like the ending at all, I was so close-minded back then, I remember beating it years later and enjoying the ending much more, as I do today

Re: Dead or Alive: Dimensions Pulled from Sale in Australia

LightSamus

ozgameshop.com all Australians use this site, seriously not even silly advertising this site is epic. Very cheap games and best of all - free delivery, however it takes about 2 weeks to reach you after they post it, but so worth it. They have DOA:D and even got MK9 from this site.

Re: Wii U Hopes to Rectify Problems that Wii is Experiencing

LightSamus

"The Legend of Zelda games were something geared towards the toughest audience,"
Well not anymore, with Ocarina of Time containing video hints or 'visions' it basically kills all challenge, many people I've talked too say Nintendo are 'bringing down' their hardcore games with Super Guides etc turning them into selling points for casual gamers. I'm not sure where I stand, but they do have a point..
