I'm a huge Nintendo and pony fan.

Nothing to deep here, I'm just a guy who likes his Nintendo games. I also am a fan of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic series. I sometimes draw, though not often.

Lunapplebloom commented on Talking Point: The Wii U May be Best as One of...:

Well, technically I'm still in the last generation if according to what some may say about the Wii U... :P

But no, I love my little deluxe black box, and still think it's been a worthwhile purchase since day 1.

However, I'll probably go with my tried and true method last generation. That was own a Wii since day 1, and own a PS3 after some time had passed and was cheaper. So that means I'll pick up a PS4 somewhere down the line. Just nothing that really makes me want to purchase right now...



Lunapplebloom commented on The Hyrule Warriors Artbook Catches The Eye Wi...:

Well, this escalated quickly...

As a fan who has played every Zelda out there (besides CDI Zelda games. Sorry weirdo Philips Link :P ), I'm really not against this. As long as they do it right and optional. Judging from this book, the concept was there, but in the end rejected. I wonder who it was that said no...



Lunapplebloom commented on Nintendo Announces The GameCube Controller Ada...:

Huzzah, I say! I was figuring on possibly stockpiling some Wii U Pro controllers for this game, but seems I may not need as many as expected. Now to pull out my wave bird when the time comes...

Hopefully, this means GameCube VC is also on the way. Though I'd love to stick my old collection straight into the console's disc reader, according to @Discostew, that isn't going to happen. Still, digital would be nice! :)



Lunapplebloom commented on Best Buy's 'Smash-Fest' Venues, Perks and Demo...:

Just checked for Hawaii (even though there is no Best Buy on my island) just for the heck of it. To my surprise, Hawaii isn't even listed...

Oh well, I guess I'll sit this out same as last year. :( Why not try having these demos at Gamestop as well, Nintendo?



Lunapplebloom commented on Here Are Plenty of Lovely Hyrule Warriors Scre...:

@Jaz007 I agree with you there. I know that in past Zelda's there were always some characters that showed off some of their assests, but this is easily the most seen despit the fairies in Ocarina of Time. I'll just chalk it up with the developers trying to squeeze in their mark. Still though, not as bad as others, but yeah, not much of a fan.

All that aside, I am really hyped for this! I was hyped back when we had the first trailer, but now it's gone higher. I know my brothers will get a kick out of multiplayer. This can't come soon enough!



Lunapplebloom commented on The Wii U Version Of Super Smash Bros. Will Ut...:

So not totally confirmed now, but still possible...

Well I would like to see what could come of this NFC stuff, just so long as they proceed with caution. To make it mandatory could upset a whole bunch of people, though could see it used for small add on things that don't matter. have to wait and see

I know one thing though, I'm gonna buy all those figures eventually... :P



Lunapplebloom commented on Hyrule Warriors Screenshots and Gameplay Detai...:

Oh yeah! This is looking sweet! Never really could get into the warrior series a great deal, but this looks like it will be a nice combination of the 2 series. Add in the fact that it has local multiplayer with the gamepad with multiple characters from the Zelda series new and old, and this has the makings of being awesome.

Can't wait for more at E3. :D



Lunapplebloom commented on Club Nintendo Distributing Tomodachi Life Demo...:

Yay! I got me a code! :D

The first time having platinum has ever gotten me something useful besides the end of the fiscal year rewards. Missed the chance to try the Wii U before it released since I couldn't make it, and the Pizza Hut gift promotion from Reggie.

Sad that there seems to be a bunch of people not getting it though. :( I hope your emails come soon enough, and good luck!



Lunapplebloom commented on Lucasfilm Decrees That All Star Wars Video Gam...:

Well that's... odd... I never really considered much canon besides a few of the games, but flat out saying everything is a bit extreme. I can still see lots of game stuff before episode 1 still fitting in, as well as a couple in between for the prequels.

I guess they are just covering themselves in case the new movies step on something that was established in the EU of Star Wars so they don't get major backlash.

Still, looking forward to seeing what they do with these new films. I'm a fan of Abrams Star Trek Films, so this could be interesting to see.



Lunapplebloom commented on Nintendo Lifts The Lid On Its Plans For E3 2014:

I'm looking forward to see what their presentation is like going forward here. Smash Bros. is the only game that has been announced that it's solidly coming out this year (and their biggest trump card), so of course they are going to be pushing that before E3 to gain hype. I wouldn't be surprised if we see some other games revealed for the later half of the year, and some other demos also popping up at Best Buy locations, but that remains to be seen. (And I can't play Smash or anything during the event anyways, since I am nowhere near a Best Buy sadly... :( )

Funny way to get their info out though. love the Reggie Mech. :D



Lunapplebloom commented on LostWinds Now Available For Wii to Wii U Transfer:

I'm happy that they finally got the game to be available on Wii mode through the transfer and in the Wii Shop Channel, but I'll have to repurchase it? I think I'll wait a little bit before I make any conclusions of what I should do to get my copy over to Wii U.



Lunapplebloom commented on Talking Point: The Game Boy is 25 Years Old, a...:

Ah... Memories... I'll never forget the day we got that grey brick of awesomeness. Christmas of 95 was the day I believe, with getting that big ol' grey unit with a pocket system bundled with Mario Land. I believe the other game that day was Tetris, but Mario was where it was at for me. I couldn't get enough of running around in that tiny pixel game, and played that again and again.

Unbelievable to me, I still have the original box and Manuel in near mint condition all these years later, as all the other games over the years had their manuels and boxes mutilated to a certain degree. Guess I was to young to care about the things that it came with and just chose to play.

Happy 25th Gameboy. You earned your mark on history. :)



Lunapplebloom commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

@midnafanboy Well, at least you have gotten to play it. I never laid a finger in that till today. :P Thank you once again though. It is indeed from the comics, the last issue in the main series released so far. 'Twas such a heartfelt moment, that I needed it as an avatar.

@Aqueous after playing a few hours, I can see what you mean. Everything seems to be a relative breeze to accomplish, given some work around. Still, I'm enjoying it, so that counts for something. Now, to find your Shadow Link... :P



Lunapplebloom commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

For me it'll be a mix between Advance Wars, Golden Sun, Professor Layton: and the Azran Legacy, and Zelda: Link Between Worlds. I know it's a travesty that I haven't played the latest handheld Zelda yet, but I'll be fixing that soon... hopefully. :P



Lunapplebloom commented on Sonic Lost World Gets Free Legend of Zelda DLC...:

Oh yes! This was what I was hoping for! Sonic looks so cool with his Link cosplay costume, and seeing him in Skyward Sword style has made my day. Will download as soon as I can tomorrow to test this out on my launch week copy of Lost Worlds. ;) (which is also very decent might I add.)



Lunapplebloom commented on Nintendo Download: 20th March (North America):

@Discostew an interesting idea. Perhaps there is more to the whole EA deal than we realize. Nintendo trying to make it up by releasing old sports games is not exactly a winning idea though.

VC has been a bit appailing as of late, but not to concerned about that either way for now. Still, will get some things when the drip feed in down the line upgraded from Wii VC.

Pure Chess for me this week, when I have the time anyways.



Lunapplebloom commented on Nintendo Force Magazine Secures Second Year Wi...:

Backed this a little while after I saw it. Had some good specials towards the end of it's Kickstarter run as well. I personally got the package with Shovel Knight, and digital and physical subscription.

They've done an awesome job so far, and can't wait to see what they do next. :)



Lunapplebloom commented on Steel Diver: Sub Wars Update Applies Fixes and...:

@Aqueous Thanks for your investigative work. Well sounds like they tried a bit of balancing I guess. We'll find out soon enough how affected everything is I suppose.

To bad they didn't tweak the online for finding friends first before going random... :( Oh well, these improvements are nice to see, especially that winning streak modification. Never could get to high with all those errors I kept getting.



Lunapplebloom commented on This Is What The Box Art For Mario Golf: World...:

Looks nice, but would have preferred there to be a few other characters on the front as well. The course in the background for instance could have had some characters doing their own thing, instead of it just being an empty field.

Still, looks lovely. I wonder if the one responsible for the Mario Kart 8 cover did this one...



Lunapplebloom commented on Ninterview: Aaron "NintendoTwizer" Norton and ...:

Kudos to @NintendoTwizer for having such an ability to collect all these titles and put in a room this awesome. My hat off to him about ROMs as well. He hit that notion on the head perfectly. As a retro game player myself, nothing beats the actual system experience. The feeling of the actual controller in your hand and playing it on an old tube TV is the stuff of legends...



Lunapplebloom commented on Nintendo Switching Off Wi-Fi Connection Servic...:

@RantingThespian No that's ok. It just really gets me in my soft spot. Your story sounds fascinating though. I've been considering starting from the very beginning once I see the rest of new series on Netflix and Hulu Plus. Even if everything may look dated, every great series comes from somewhere, and I'm always willing to take a look at where it began.

@RantingThespian & @Senario David is really one of a kind in the role so far to me. Luckily, I'll still get to see him one last time for the 50th. :P

And thanks for the heads up. I saw Matt's first appearance episode now, and he's off to a good start. Need to see more before I pass judgement however.

Sure thing though. I'm always up for a little discussion. I think I saw a thread around NL somewhere for Doctor discussion, but can't remember where. I've derailed this topic enough though for myself and you guys with me. :P



Lunapplebloom commented on Nintendo Switching Off Wi-Fi Connection Servic...:

@RantingThespian You really know how to hit a guy right in here... Having a nostalgia moment.

@Senario I know, right? I have a few people who I know who watch it (on NL and in real life), and that was what partially pushed me to finally see it. I never really got into it, since the episodes I saw were out of sequence, so it just looked like a weird mess of a show to me. Now thanks to the power of Netflix and a little prodding, I decided to take another shot from the beginning of the newer series... And it was Brilliant! Now to see how this new guy after Tennant works out.

@Aqueous One can hope. I guess I may need to vs you in that before it goes for good.
