MIDP commented on Mario Memories: Pre-Internet Timeline Confusio...:

I only got to "really" play it after World, and I still like it way more than World.
I only had an SNES but remember really wanting an NES to be able to play Mario 3 that I had seen so many times and played at friends places.
So finally one day, we got All Stars!

The rest is history...or something



MIDP commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Dismissal of Chris P...:

I just read that SuicideGirl thing.
So what, only because a member on an adult site has listed a Nintendo game as one of her favorite games, they filed a lawsuit!?
WTF Nintendo?
Like, WTF for real, I dont even know where to begin...

They tell a fan to not promote their product, because they think the fan is bad for their image...whats next, are you going to select what fans can even play your games at all?

Out of all the ridiculous things Nintendo has ever done, that is the worst I've heard. I've always backed them no matter what, but this is like discrimination as well as bad morals in my opinion.
I didn't even know one could get sued or force to not write "ZELDA" on the internet.
Are they going to block our comments here to then? I guess they could technically then.

Please tell me I've misunderstood what was in that info, like it was a joke or something, because the way I feel about this now...I'm not sure if I am going to keep buying any Nintendo products in the future...
I'm seriously so disappointed right now.



MIDP commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Dismissal of Chris P...:

Wow, I've lost a bunch of amazing jobs, but seriously.
That is really a failure mentality. I understand that one is sad, almost, kind of.
Whenever my jobs end, I just recharge and come back stronger to the next place.
What I think I am trying to say is, he's making it sound like he is the only person who ever lost a job...



MIDP commented on Chris Prangar, Nintendo Treehouse Staffer Who ...:

How can he say he did NOT see it coming, I even wrote it was coming
This was my comment:

"Is it just me or do that team (whoever was talking in the interveiw/podcast) need a new spokesperson?
Or was that just poorly written from sounds to text?
Sure, I understood the point, but there is like a milion ways to make that sound way more professional than that.
This was almost at the level of Mega Man Legends 3..."

If I said something like that in any of my jobs, while I worked in America I'd get fired too.
Which kind of sucks since the freedom of speech should be free always...



MIDP commented on Review: DK: Jungle Climber (Wii U eShop / DS):

I think this is one of the most underappreciated games ever.
The gameplay is really unique and feels truly good to play. You use the shoulder buttons to kind of swing yourself, and its really a lot about having a nice "flow".
Its a great game on the go that is simply put, simply a lot of fun.

I personally would give this game an 8.

Since this version is not on the go, I can kind of see why its not an 8.
That shouldnt take away the fun that the story provides however.



MIDP commented on Mighty No. 9 Producer Shares Regret Over Delay...:

...and of course, planning a little better, even though that argument doesn't make too much sense either really, since one has to assume they did try to plan with the knowledge they had, and since that wasn't enough, they wouldn't had done differently.
So all they can do then is to plan better for next time.



MIDP commented on Mighty No. 9 Producer Shares Regret Over Delay...:

Exactly. Like he says, its bad, and it sucks.
But planning stuff when you have a lot of stretch goals that get reached when you didn't plan on ever reaching them in the first place of course has to be difficult.
Essentially, that should had been put in to account when planned initially.
But it is very easy for me to see how, you have this plan and timeline, but then you run into some bumps you didn't plan on running into initially, which in itself leads to some more bumps, then another thing you may not have counted on shows up.

And since they probably pay people on monthly pay rolls, it makes even more sense that they have to move teams that do nothing, to do something.
A smaller company really needs to make sure to take every revenue stream possible, if they sit and lose out on some money, and they run into something unexpected later, that might in fact be the difference of bankruptcy compared to being able to maybe survive another few months to be able to recover.
Thats why Nintendo will survive fine with the Wii U losing them money, because they have made sure to generate enough money to be able to take a fall like that, maybe even 2, 3 or 4.
At the end of the day, a company needs to always try to make as much money as possible, because that gives them a better chance to deliver better products.

The only thing I see that they've done wrong is the way, as he says, they've presented all of it. It should have been way better informed to the backers and the fans, and explained why it is OK for them to start Red Ash while doing Mighty No 9 at the same time.



MIDP commented on Chris Pranger From Nintendo Treehouse Discusse...:

Is it just me or do that team (whoever was talking in the interveiw/podcast) need a new spokesperson?
Or was that just poorly written from sounds to text?
Sure, I understood the point, but there is like a milion ways to make that sound way more professional than that.
This was almost at the level of Mega Man Legends 3...



MIDP commented on Masahiro Sakurai Tackles Criticisms of Bonus F...:

Well spoken. It is like "Pokemon Amie" or customizing your character in Pokemon (Which still I don't understand why they had to remove, and their bs excuse to why was terrible).

Extra features that are there if you want to use them, otherwise don't, and just play the game and enjoy.
Some reviewers sure are...bad at reviewing I guess...or something along those lines.



MIDP commented on Video: 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Trailer Confirm...:

@Seanmyster6 I know, same with Gunstar Heroes right?
But still, first Gunstar Heroes announced, now this...
Man, I could explode from excitement
Maybe not a big deal to most, but both these games, but espescially Sonic 2, is such a big part of my child hood and has played a big part of what Ive become...sounds pretty deep for a game, but the more I think of it, its probably very true
Also, the 2 player VS is like the most underrated VS multiplayer mode in gaming, one of the most, at least
Played it with my brother and a friend endlessly
Both with teleporters and normal items, its a blast
The dynamic with teleporters is also so much fun because it changes the gameplay completely
Other than that mode, Sonic 3 & Knuckles combined is the far superior game in every way imaginable...except like the mentioned VS mode, of course



MIDP commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Retail Games of 2015 ...:

When I saw Dragon Ball, I thought, "sold", but when I saw it was in 2D...
Well, they dont want my money...
Im sure if they made a 3DS 3D Dragon Ball similar to the ones on consoles, every Dragon Ball fan with a 3DS would buy it instantly.
But hey, Im probably wrong, and maybe thats just I who would...
Maybe in the next gen...



MIDP commented on Obituary: Satoru Iwata:

Its a sad day for us all.
I will never forget how good all the Nintendo Directs were with him.
His personality was truly amazing.

Wherever you are now, we miss you Iwata - "Directly to you" <3



MIDP commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Approach to Transfor...:

Ok, wait a 2D to 3D Metroid is "Evolution", while Metroid Prime to Prime Federation Force is "Transformation"?
Sounds like a very subjectively irrational comparison.
I mean, almost nothing in 2D and 3D Metroid is similar when it comes to gameplay.
While Prime and Fed Force is , well first off we don't really know, but judging by footage, it is pretty similar except for the fact that the "mood" and "objectives" are different.
It seems more like a different "mode" of Prime.
And while that could mean that it at the end might also feel completely different, I still think it is pretty illogical to say that 2D to 3D is less different.
In other words, 2D to 3D would then be more of a "transformation" than Prime to Fed Force...



MIDP commented on 3D Gunstar Heroes Brings New Modes And Local C...:

Im so f***ing excited about this game!
Honestly, its like one of my favorite games all time!
To be able to have it on the 3DS is a dream come true, Ive waited for so long.
The thing that sucks though is that you need two copies for Co-op...
It feels like so many games on the 3DS does that for the wrong reasons (I think).
Because it feels like they want you to buy two copies obviously, but many times, it feels like if you're actually able to play the game with someone who doesn't have a copy, that leads to the extra copy, and many times a new fan of the franchise in question, which of course in turn, generates more copies.
Some of the first party titles do a good job of this actually, like MK7 and Mario Party, where they let you do Download Play.
That has led some of the people I've showed games to, to become fans of them, buying more games.
And when you look at home consoles, all you need there is an extra controller.
So yeah, it is truly a huge negative on many 3DS games...
But hey, still happy the game is coming!



MIDP commented on Tablets Stole The Wii U's Thunder, Laments Shi...:

@Kirk Thad'd be cool
Kind of like 3DS.
...speaking of which, is something that should somehow be incorporated more.
One example is why they half do it with Super Smash, "Here, a mode to use the controller...only in Smash mode, otherwise you have to choose another one"
And then they drop this 1 EUR add on - of when I read, was sure that it enabled you to use it in all modes, I bought it right away, only to find out afterwards that, no, this was only for people with a 3DS, without Smash on it, who wants to use it to play Smash on the Wii U - once again, only in one mode!
Like, are they kidding us, first of all, how often do you run into that scenario even.
I mean, sure, I guess it does happen, but that just makes it even more of a reason to let you be able to use your 3DS as a controller in all modes.
Just in general, it feels like they should have been able to make an app for the 3DS that just lets it be a controller.
Like many other nit picky things, its not the deal breaker of how good the console is, but it is one of many small things that just feel like they shouldn't be that difficult to fix, and if they had this, along with much other things, the console would feel so much better.
And don't get me wrong, I sound negative, but I love my Wii U, it is my favorite console ever behind the New 3DS.
But it just feels, like said before, so many small things could together give an overall better experience if they were fixed, and many of these small things should not be, or have been to difficult to fix.



MIDP commented on First Impressions: Our Maiden Flight In Star F...:

@Zach I think so too
The controls seem fun, I dont find the graphics to be that bad at all.
Also, I dont see what the complain about Assault is that everyone seems to have.
That is the only Star Fox game Ive truly enjoyed, times and times better than 64 in my opinion.



MIDP commented on Akihiro Hino on Why Fantasy Life 2 is Not Comi...:

Well, theyre not eliminating the "kids playing on 3DSs" since they also play on smart devices.
Maybe I misunderstood what was written.
Either way, I think this makes good sense.
More people will be able to buy it now, and granted that they can make their title visible among all other good phone titles, then its a great move.
Although I'd love to see the sequel on the 3DS as well obviously.



MIDP commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's DeNA Plans and Ideas...:

Opening up Nintendo Life.
Seeing a bunch of articles about "DeNA".
Opening up 3-4 of them, hoping one of the articles would explain at least in short, more about what this "DeNA" is.
...reading, reading...I am sure its there somewhere, but why should it be so hard to find?
Oh well, Google time...



MIDP commented on Feature: Five Nintendo 64 Games We'd Love to P...:

Golden Eye (With online support, otherwise no need to)
Donkey Kong 64 (Might be my favorite 64 5 for sure)
Banjoe and Kazooie (Never got to play it, but it looks so much fun.)
Paper Mario (Love this game, started it over like 3 times, got really far, but never had the time to complete it, would be perfect for 3DS)
...Super Mario 64 (even though the DS version was a top 5 DS game for me, that in itself is reason enough to get another version of it.)

1080 Snowboarding would be cool if they just made a completely new game instead.
I just dont think there was enough in that to stay entertained alone for that long.
If they added like a "Story mode thingy" where you could play cups and other things to unlock a lot of upgrades and gear etc. (I know there is already, but not big enough in my opinion)
Also online.
Something similar to Mario Tennis 3DS but with a more grand scale to it.
And yeah, way more stages.
Like I said, might as well make a completely new game of it.

Just what I think.



MIDP commented on Nintendo Delays Financial Results Presentation...:

Nintendo should make "Nintendo Amiboo World".
Make it open world, tons of missions and never ending side quests, leveling system, large variety of worlds in form of worlds from all the games they have made.
Then the Amiboo you have, should play the same style as the game they come from.
For example, lets say you could be in the world of Zelda, Hyrule, but play as Mario. Then you might need certain power ups/ xp/ level or whatever they would want to design as a system, in order to beat certain dungeons/quests etc.

Or, buy a Link or Zelda figurine in order to clear some places quicker if you dont want to grind and get that power up/level etc.

I think that would be really cool to see all the worlds from Nintendo come together and interact with one and other.

Imagine you want to clear a place in the Zelda world where you need lets say a boomerang, and you can actually require a boomerang suit from the Mario world from a hammer bro, or from the Kirby world, etc.

Maybe it could be built so that the Amiboo you have from the start lets you start from a certain world, then clearing stuff there will let you get to the others etc.
There would be endless possibillities.
And they wouldnt have to make all the worlds right away either.
Let us start with Mario, Zelda and Kirby or something.
The a year later give us version 2/expansion pack/DLC whatever with Metroid, Donkey Kong and Star Fox.

I know Im just dreaming away here...but honestly, I would pay to buy every single Amiboo to be able to see how they would all interact in these worlds.
Add some local and online co-op on it would be my biggest wish Nintendo, make it happen, ill give you my money for sure!
