MagicEmperor commented on Soapbox: Sonic, It's Time to Talk:

Fantastic article, Tom. A thorough and excellent read. You said it. Unfortunately, fanboys (which is not saying any rational Sonic fan, but the true blind sheep) are going to plug their ears and go LALALALALA, as they often do. Oh, well! As far as I'm concerned, the truth has been spoken.

I was tempted to check out Rise of Lyric just for laughs, but a bad joke isn't worth $60.



MagicEmperor commented on Video: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Opening Cin...:

Had it not been for the last half, I'd say my main (Peach) got shafted. But even if she hadn't been featured I wouldn't cry. This gets me so pumped for the Wii U game! I DO prefer Brawl's main theme, but this new theme is still every bit hummable to me.

Wh-what's this?! A positive opinion? I'm a heretic!



MagicEmperor commented on Round Table: Let's Talk Super Smash Bros. For ...:

I always viewed the 3DS and Wii U versions as the appetizer and main course, respectively. Both are fixin' to be mighty delicious, and I happily scarfed down the appetizer. But come the grand finale entree, and you might NEVER see me again.

As much as I like the 3DS version, it still doesn't convince me that it'll surpass the Wii U game. Not a chance.



MagicEmperor commented on Limited GameCube Controller Edition of Super S...:

So, is Princess Peach's "The Nothing" fashion detail replacement one of the big reasons this game avoided a T rating? :O (Don't get your 'knickers' in a twist if you don't understand what I mean!)

This was what I have preordered. I'm eager!



MagicEmperor commented on Nintendo Direct: New Nintendo 3DS Models Comin...:

@hydeks OBJECTION! slams desk You claim that the New 3DS is not worth the price at all. However, you contradict this statement by insulting Nintendo for releasing it in Australia and New Zealand before other territories. Ergo... points accusingly You should not care about something "not worth it," but you nonetheless act entitled and crabby!

[courtroom murmurs]



MagicEmperor commented on Developer Profile: Masahiro Sakurai:

Mr. Sakurai, I demand you take a lengthy break after Smash for Wii U. Give your arm/hand a rest!

As for the Ridley Saga, I think it's just a case of misunderstanding. I think Ridley fans took that one clip and ran away with it, instead of thinking rationally. But that's what speculation is all about...



MagicEmperor commented on Nintendo UK Gets Help from Boy Band The Vamps ...:

Never heard of 'em, but then again I'm a yank.

Tomodachi Life was fun for a glorious brief time... and now it's merely a repetitive slog full of jokes run into the ground and something I just don't play anymore. Still, the brief fun I had was indeed fun. [/opinion]



MagicEmperor commented on Beautiful Limited Edition Super Smash Bros. 3D...:

I suspected this would happen! I wonder if there will be a blue version with the "For Wii U" roster of characters? Dunno.

I already have two XLs, one that's standard blue for trips and 'rough' locations, and the Disney Magical World white one for home/gentle use. But this tempts me, brah. This tempts me pretty well.



MagicEmperor commented on Legendary Actor and Comedian Robin Williams Ha...:

He had serious battles with depression, addiction and had plenty of demons, yet I never expected this. This is very saddening. He was a huge inspiration to many today, and I knew him by name since 1991's Hook (I was 5 at the time). Some of my favorite movies of all time feature him, specifically One Hour Photo and Aladdin. He was a rare gift, someone who could make you laugh or feel sorrow. And his beard in those Zelda commercials was freakin' LEGENDARY.

RIP Robin Williams. We ain't never had a friend like him!



MagicEmperor commented on Review: The Letter (Wii U eShop):

@sleepinglion I can't fathom how anyone can defend this game "because it's cheap." Take a look at Gunman Clive. Whether you like it or not (I personally think it's excellent for what it is), it offers WAY more content and is replayable, and it's also $1.99. It almost feels like the supporters on Miiverse are paid. How could anyone excuse this crumpled up Letter? A true mystery.



MagicEmperor commented on Review: The Letter (Wii U eShop):

I got this and even when I expected crud, I didn't expect TOTAL crud. Wow. But one good thing came out of The Letter: I had a younger guy play it when he was over and I hyped it up as a really scary game. He was confused by the third area and asked, "So, where's the monster? Anything?"

This is hands down the worst game I've played in years. End of story.
