I'm a huge Nintendo and pony fan.

Male, 24, United States

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.

I found out about it only this morning, and am still reeling from the shock I had. As the only President of the comfy I really knew about, he was an icon to me growing up. And the fact he helped make so many memorable games is a testament to his work ethic. Heck, I may not be enjoying the same Super Smash Bros. most have come to love over the almost 2 decades.

Kinda makes you think how short life can be. Much like a vapor in the grand scheme of things.



Lunapplebloom commented on Reminder: Xenoblade Chronicles 3D Out Now for ...:

I downloaded this last night. I know I'm going to be getting my money's worth out of this one, and I'll probably revisit it often. I already have the Wii Disc, so this will help to preserve that. Now perhaps maybe I will finally finish this adventure.

Now it's Reyn time!



Lunapplebloom commented on Reaction: Xenoblade Chronicles 3D is an Impres...:

@Spoony_Tech I couldn't agree more with the assertion of English voice acting. I much prefer it if companies take the time and effort to properly dub something then just giving me english text over a Japanese voice. It kinda breaks the immersion for me. Not to say that I can't handle it, but I enjoy something far greater if I can just listen and watch the action.

Looks great though, I may just get this to compliment my Wii version, and perhaps actually finish the game finally since it's portable. I've always had a harder time finishing a game on a TV console then a handheld.



Lunapplebloom commented on Live-Action Netflix Series For The Legend of Z...:

Out of all the news I expected to hear today, this is totally out of the left Hyrulian Field... I am both optimistic and scared at the same time.

This could really be good though, because I haven't seen to many original series from Netflix that is more for an everyone audience. We shall see...



Lunapplebloom commented on Target Won't Be Restocking Rosalina amiibo, Se...:

I went to Target first thing in the morning before church. Got to the store just a couple of minutes after they opened, and found about 9 people already in the electronics section. Luckily, everyone was very civil about the situation, and there was plenty of Rosalinas to go around. The only figure that wasn't stocked well was Shiek. I believe the employee said they only got 4 of her for the store.



Lunapplebloom commented on Impressions: Nintendo Made The Right Call With...:

This is basically Valkyrie Chronicles, with a new coat of paint. I'm surprised so few have made that connection in the comments, but that is to be expected. I wouldn't have known either a couple of years ago before I picked it up myself.

In anycase, I really liked the demo, but I need more info before I can make a full decision on this. The gamestop preorder bonus with Majora's Mask pin is starting to sway me though.



Lunapplebloom commented on Not Everyone is Thrilled That Metroid Prime Tr...:

Such a non issue. Prices will drop, but will rebound within the year, especially on sealed copies. People, myself included, like to have that physical copy they can hold and touch, so there will always be a market for that. What this will help the most are people that are not interested in collecting games physically, and they can go play it for a ton less and legally.

I will never sell my copy though, unless I need to save myself financially someday. My game probably wouldn't fetch much of a price anyways. The steel book case was stolen from my house a while ago. Rotten thieves.



Lunapplebloom commented on Best Buy Is Cancelling Majora's Mask New 3DS X...:

[me shouts in Pits voice] Victory!

Just got me one today. The manager at my local GameStop in Hawaii called me up this morning as soon as they opened and told me they had some available to do instore. Had to pay in full, but definitely worth it, and better than feeding the scalpers those insane prices.

One thing he did meantion to me though was that they were allowed to do this since everyone in the west coast states and beyond were shafted because Gamestops weren't even opened yet when they sold out from the east coast. I'm just glad my waiting and searching is finally over...

Sorry to those that had their orders canceled and didn't get a chance to order from GameStop though.



Lunapplebloom commented on Club Nintendo to Close, With Replacement Loyal...:

Wow... I was just thinking of how I needed to do some surveys last night. Guess I better start cracking down on that. Shame to see the program go though, but haven't been many decent rewards really for the past year or so. Hopefully we get some decent stuff to spend more coins on.

I still have some surveys from the DS and Wii era to still fill out.



Lunapplebloom commented on Hundreds of Limited Edition Majora's Mask New ...:

If only there was a way to band together with others across all countries to not buy these systems on Ebay and other such sites from these people. For hundreds upon hundreds to suddenly flood Ebay over the course of a day is ludicrous, and to not give these stinkers any money would definitely make them consider canceling their preorders.

I was hoping to get the MM N3DSXL, but I was stupid enough to wait a couple of minutes after the stream finished to idly chat with a friend about what was revealed. Had I known that I would not be able to purchase them in 10 minutes, my priorities would have been very different.

I have a Monster Hunter Console reserved as a backup, but I really hope they put more of these out in the wild. Would be a shame for everyone who wanted to pay only retail for them.



Lunapplebloom commented on Toys "R" Us amiibo Pre-Orders Cancelled Again:

No email for me, though it could be any moment... I only ordered Lucario though, so all should be good hopefully.

I did the rest of my preorders for non exclusives with Best Buy though. I figured they would be a little better with this than Toys R Us, and so far have been correct. Still waiting for Pit, Luigi, and Captain Falcon to ship from them though.



Lunapplebloom commented on Poll: Which is the Best Super Smash Bros. Game?:

I got a soft spot for Melee so I'll be going with that. I do like both the Wii U and 3DS entries, but there just seems to be something missing. Like it's a little more generic for some reason. Though I will say the gameplay tweaks are top notch.

I'm no Melee elitest though. I just really liked and played that one a lot with my bros. and sisters.



Lunapplebloom commented on Poll: Fake Wave 4 amiibo Images Make Us Dream ...:

@Midnafanboy All of the ones revealed so far currently. The only one that eludes me is Rosalina & Luma since Target isn't taking preorders yet.

I was only orginally getting just the select few that I liked, but then it turned into a bit of a frenzy for me. Still, I've managed to get all that have released so far at regular retail price, and have preorders on the rest I can, so I'm good.



Lunapplebloom commented on Poll: Fake Wave 4 amiibo Images Make Us Dream ...:

I sure hope we get some more. Even with all the confusion from stock shortages, canceling preorders, and reinstating them again, these are at least decent looking figures. And some of the characters being the first time as a figure too.

I doubt they will stop production though. Amiibo has been a gold mine so far for them, so stopping short wouldn't make a great deal of sense. This is Nintendo we are talking about though, so we will just have to wait and see.



Lunapplebloom commented on Poll: Have You Been Able to Buy the Super Smas...:

My problem is that I got the whole game and adapter bundle, but it is yet to arrive in the mail even though it was supposed to arrive the day before Thanksgiving. I've practically lost faith it will ever show, but maybe it will be a Christmas Miracle and show on the last day in the post before then.

Amiibo has been a different story. I've preordered all the figures going into wave 2 and 3. Only one I'm not certain on is Rosalina and Luma, Since she's not available to preorder.



Lunapplebloom commented on Nintendo's New Response: Some amiibo "Likely" ...:

I had a feeling this would happen. Went to the midnight release of Smash Bros. U at the local Gamestop, even though I had my copy preordered online (which I'm still waiting for...). I decided to pick up some amiibos since I was there, and asked which were available. The employee I talked too listed the amiibos in this article as not being available past preorders, and alarms went off in my head. I knew then and there that if I wanted a chance of getting them, I'd have to check other stores that would carry them ASAP.

Long story short, I now have 9 out of 12 of wave 1, which includes Marth, Villager, and Wii Fit Trainer. The ones I'm currently missing are Yoshi, Mario, and DK. I figured if any would still be on shelves, they would be for an inevitable sale.

I'm not taking any chances with the rest of them. Have both Shulk and Metaknight on preorder since they are exclusive. Would have preordered Lucario, but that's sadly not an option anymore, since the nearest Toys R Us to check is 100s of miles away. I may be at the mercy of scalpers on that one.

@Aqueous By all means. Even if it's not going to be used by you, you could make a decent profit if kept sealed.



Lunapplebloom commented on Nintendo 64x64: Star Wars: Rogue Squadron:

I played the sequels more than this one, so I can't give it a fair shake. Never owned it either, so that doesn't help.

What I do remember is that I did have fun when I did play it. I'll always prefer Star Fox though, but all personal taste there.



Lunapplebloom commented on Retailer Lists Super Smash Bros. Wii U for 21s...:

Hmm... That date seems viable. I would have expected a date by now if this was any other game. Nintendo must be worried how the 3DS version might perform I suppose. Still, they are running out of time to keep the official date hidden much longer.

@Midnafanboy you are probably right about Watch_Dogs. Still, there is a slight possibility you could be wrong, so best to just wait till we see something conclusive. Don't plan on buying either way, however.
PS Love that avatar.



Lunapplebloom commented on Nintendo 64x64: Lylat Wars / Star Fox 64:

As much as I love this game, I must give props to the 3DS remake for just making everything better. Improving on perfection really. Everything looked so good and smooth, and added to the overall experience.

Doesn't knock my score at all for the original, but I'd highly recommend that version over the original, especially if you have a 3DS XL



Lunapplebloom commented on Nintendo 64x64: Body Harvest:

Never owned this for obvious reasons. The games title alone screams "Do not buy!" to my parents if they ever looked at it.

Interesting though that the ground concept for open worlds was there, though buggy.



Lunapplebloom commented on Nintendo 64x64: Mario Party:

I know you guys linked this in your last feature with the N64, but I think another link featuring this somewhere prominently on the front page would be good as well.



Lunapplebloom commented on Nintendo 64x64: Mario Party:

Mario Party! Now we're talking. I never really played any of the other games up for review so far besides Mario 64. Even though I had a 64, my scope of gaming was rather limited compared to today.

Glad I can finally participate in another.



Lunapplebloom commented on Walmart Lists Blue And Red Smash Bros 3DS XL C...:

I'll be needing to pick up a new 3DS at some point. My XL took a really nasty knock of falling off a moving vehicle, but somehow functions almost perfectly still. I'll probably wait for the New 3DS XL comes around. This Smash one seems enticing, but it's not worth it to me with a new model coming soon.

What's more interesting to me is that Alienware console in the ad. Never knew they were entering the console space via Steam. I'll need to research that...



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...

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...
