I'm a huge Nintendo and pony fan.

Male, 25, 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.

There's a novel idea. I'm glad someone at Nintendo was able to see the results and figure it out. Who knew that you could make more sales by selling things at a discount?

Seriously though, they should really consider that to be their big push. Step 1. There is still no select range in the US yet, so just drop the price and reproduce a bunch of select games in waves of 4. Step 2. Also drop the price of the consoles new and old by a margin. Step 3. PROFIT!



Lunapplebloom commented on Bayonetta Confirmed as New Challenger in Super...:

@AlanJones84 Because it doesn't fall into the category that Super Smash Bros. does in the rating spectrum. Smash has always been at the highest a T rated game. But it's more of an aesthetic for me, and if I don't like, I just won't buy it. It is DLC after all. I just feel there were better choices, but it was apparently voted on the highest, so congrats.



Lunapplebloom commented on Bayonetta Confirmed as New Challenger in Super...:


So much potential down the tubes. I was hoping for at least 5 characters, but only 3 is a bit disappointing. I'm not to pleased with Bayonetta making it in either. She's the only character besides Snake from an M rated game so far in Smash, and that sort of clashes with me. I never really liked Snake either. Would have been better if Shantae or some other character with a strong relation to Nintendo consoles was included.

Besides that, I'm stocked for Cloud and Corrin though, and what a ride it has been. Well done Mr. Sakurai!



Lunapplebloom commented on Rumour: A Class in Bravely Second is Supposedl...:

From watching a bunch of different videos of Did You Know Gaming, these sorts of changes have been going on way before now. I mean, it started back in the NES days, and probably even before then. The only reason people get riled up over this now is because so much information is so readily available from the internet. This isn't the first time, and it probably won't be the last.



Lunapplebloom commented on You Can't Alter The Chest Size Of Female Chara...:

Oh look, another article about an issue that doesn't really matter in the whole scheme of things... I would say just be thankful at least that they are localizing it at all, since this is a riskier venture for them financially speaking.

Let me just say that both sides of the argument don't have any concrete details about why it was changed. It could be because of the ESRB slapping on a M rating if it wasn't changed for all we know, or maybe they did want to protect the innocent for some reason or another. No one knows the truth, so it's just idle speculation for now.



Lunapplebloom commented on Site News: Nintendo Life Turns 10 Today:

I registered back in January 2012, but I've been lurking this site since the earlier days of its inception. I just needed a little nudge to actually join for discussion purposes, which was mostly thanks to MLP:FIM. Such great times those were.

But happy anniversary NintendoLife! It's been a heck of a ride, and I hope it doesn't stop anytime soon. All the editors and contributors to this site get a salute from me.



Lunapplebloom commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes ...:

So ok, but nothing particularly special. Sounds about what I was expecting, based on impressions and all I've heard. Still, I should be able to play this how it should be, since I got siblings to rely on locally. I got so much to do as is though that I'll probably what for a sale on this.

Would be fun to play some with you on this in the future if can.



Lunapplebloom commented on Obituary: Satoru Iwata:

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.
