MadAdam81 commented on Guide: Everything You Need To Know About Poké...:

Some Pokemon have an animated tail visible, such as Skitty and Pikachu.
Thanks to DexNav I have used an incredible amount of Pokemon. The best thing about your search level is that it includes ALL encounters with that pokemon whether in the wild or in trainer battles. You can also find Pikachu's Light Ball as well.
Also, remember that horde battles increase your search level by 5...

MadAdam81 commented on NINJHAX Exploit Is All About Nintendo 3DS Home...:

When homebrew is mostly about playing emulated ROMs - including DS emulators - it's really hard to say it's not about piracy. Yes, many emulators are for old games from NES, SNES, Mega/Genesis etc, but there are also ones for DS and GBA, which are 10 years and under. And considering most of these emulators as well as the other homebrew stuff can also be done on smartphones, I don't know what is the point of 3DS homebrew anyway.
Out of all the poeple here who play on emulators, is there one here who only ever plays games they already own on a different platform (which means different license required any so it's still illegal)?

MadAdam81 commented on Thousands In Australia & New Zealand Attend Mi...:

@hydeks They didn't have enough to launch anywhere else. They had two choices - a limited release in A&NZ or no release anywhere until their stock levels were high enough. By doing this limited release they will receive a lot of feedback so all other launches should be better, and also they will probably learn about bugs that can be fixed by the time they launch in the rest of the world.
Usually we get stuff months behind, but Nintendo are the only company that appreciates how much Australia spends and doesn't double the US price when working out how much to charge us.

I took my 8 year old daughter to her first midnight launch at TTP EB games in SA, as we both got our Pokemon OR & AS, and she won the New Nintendo 3DS XL!
She was so excited she couldn't sleep much.
I would say that the New XL is worth the money, particularly if you love 3D mode, it tracks your eyes so that the 3D is always orientated for you so you dont have to hold it in the one position.
I hope the Pikachu amiibo does something for OR & AS though.
And as for Pokemone OR & AS, it is great, I love the new DexNav feature, it has made me catch about 10 times the amountof pokemon I have in previous games, it's great for people who want the best pokemon to breed with as well.

MadAdam81 commented on Details Uncovered of Upcoming Update for Zelda...:

@Spoony_Tech As a big fan of the Warriors Musuo games, I knew what to expect, and it's the best one I have played, even better than Dynasty Warriors 5 and expansions which I sunk thousands of hours into.
If I didn't have so many games to play I would be trying to complete this at 100% as well.

MadAdam81 commented on 3DS Homebrew Exploit Set to be Launched on 22n...:

Sorry, but emulators = piracy, especially when the 3DS not only has backwards compatibility but also virtual console.
I have a phone on me at all times that has all the apps I need, who cares about having stuff on a 3DS or home console that does things worse than what you already have? It's like trying to turn it into am Xbone.

MadAdam81 commented on Mario Kart 8 Software Update and DLC Available...:

@Dave24 I always enjoyed Wario Mine, but I think this is less madcap fun (or maybe I am getting better) and I liked the simplicity of Rainbow Road. Mute City was my clear favourite, I thought Excite Bike needed more in it as well as Ice Ice, maybe a remake of GCs Baby Circuit (a similar shape to Excite Bike but was more fun drifting) and a Tropical Freeze level would have been more fun for me, but probably less fun for many others

@millarrp this could be the one that draws you in to some multilpayer action, due to a better multiplayer fun than regular modern shooters.

I am hoping this game holds up to my expectations of having the right levels of arcade action and strategy, with different types of play catered to, allowing different players to find their niche and be able to work in a team, more like TF2 and less like Halo of Duty.

MadAdam81 commented on Wii U Owner Proves That Rejecting The End-User...:

@Einherjar it wasn't because it didn't grant literal wings but because people bought the marketing hype that it improved your performance, and it didn't.
Just like Disney's Baby Einstein range that didn't fulfill the advertising promise that it would help make babies smarter.

MadAdam81 commented on Wii U Owner Proves That Rejecting The End-User...:

@unrandomsam @Einherjar hardware mods probably come under the "reverse engineering" part or something like that. Yes, software mods are fine, but if they require a hardware hack then bad luck.
When 99% of people who hack their hardware do so to play pirated games (most home brew is just emulators as well), it's silly to use the mod defense and many just won't believe you that you only want to use it for mods.

MadAdam81 commented on Wii U Owner Proves That Rejecting The End-User...:

You buy a license, and there are terms attached. Nintendo have lost a lot of money thanks to pirates, and I'm not surprised that they are doing this to combat it. The only people upset by this are those who are pirates, as anyone else would like waking up to am already updated console and being able to play as soon as you want instead of having to wait for the update first.
Any pirate or even other person upset about this should just not have their Wii U left connected to the Internet.

MadAdam81 commented on Parent Trap: Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapph...:

I played the demo and thoght it was done on the quick and was probabl the worst Pokemon gameplay. Then I played it again and it was a completely new mission. Then I played a few more times and each one was in a different area against different trainers.
Apparently there is 10 different missions, so I recommend eep o playing it until ou get to the actual end of the demo before deciding whther it is for you.

MadAdam81 commented on Weirdness: Sony Fan Creates Petition In Hope O...:

Maye if Sony offered enough money, and then Sony would have to renegotiate every license deal for each character used or shown in the game. It just wouldn't be worth the massive amounts of money required for this in the small chance of it even being a possibility, as all it would do is sell another 500 Vitas and 1000 games.

MadAdam81 commented on Nintendo Celebrates Super Smash Bros. and Wii ...:

@Caryslan and a Warriors game that is an exclusive, and only on a console where third party exclusives have struggled.
Bodes well for Bayonetta 2 which will probably sell more as a Wii U exclusive than if a third party had completely funded and published it and made it multi platform.
If you add in the fact that Rayman sold best on Wii U, I'm expecting more third parties to reconsider the Wii U, particularly if Bayonetta 2 and Devils 3rd both sell very well, and if older third party games, particularly exclusives like Zombie U and Lego City Undercover pick up enough sales over time where they finally turn a profit.

MadAdam81 commented on Nintendo Reveals The Master Cycle for Mario Ka...:

@Vineleaf I still don't understand the fuss, yeah some favourites aren't there (Funky was my player of choice on Wii), but it just gives people the chance of finding new favourites. If anything, characters from Rare's game belong less than other NIntendo characters, as Diddy and Funky never appeared in a Mario game other than MK and vice versa, and Sonic seems a better choice to me as aside from Smash, Sonic and Mario have shared a few games. Of course, that is still just being over technical in trying to work out who belongs and who doesn't - the main criteria is that it should be cool and fun to play.

MadAdam81 commented on Review: Bayonetta 2 (Wii U):

@Nimious a 10/10 genre game that people who never play that genre can really enjoy is a 10/10 game, whereas I would say one that only genre fans really enjoy mayeb shouldn't be considered a true 10/10.
I would say Left 4 Dead is a true 10/10 game, as the huge amount of people I know who can't stand shooters or horror games really enjoy L4D is staggering. Skyrim could be considered one, and possibly Mario 3D World.
If a perfect genre game has things that really turn of fans of other genres or even people who perefer other sub genres, then it's not as perfect as it could have been. The best example would be each new GTA that gets many 10/10s despite more cliched storytelling than wrestling.

MadAdam81 commented on Review: Bayonetta 2 (Wii U):

@jariw As I didn't really notice much of a drop in frame rate with Hyrule Warriors, I probably won't notice any drop in B2 - thanks for the simple comparison, it really made it clear for me.

MadAdam81 commented on Review: Bayonetta 2 (Wii U):

It's weird that this review somehow managed to praise this game for it's occasional frame rate slowdown but really dug into Hyrule Warriors for the same.
They also attacked HW for having a last gen engine, just like this sequel.
