Mariominer commented on Mario History: Mario Party - 1998:
BUT IT'S-A ME, MARIO!!!
Mariominer commented on Capcom's North American eShop Sale Has Some Te...:
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for THAT price?!?
Very tempting... wish I wasn't trying to not spend more money (spent a lot of money this summer, 30$ on a gameboy advance, 10$ on a controller, 60$ on Splatoon, and 20$ on pokemon blue).
Oh well, I guess I'll hunt plesioths some other time...
Mariominer commented on Nintendo of America Opts for 'Real World' Supe...:
Nice commercial. This game should've been a launch title. Would've sold the heck out of the console. Plus I would've been able to play it years ago...
Mariominer commented on McDonald's Happy Meal Boomerang Mario In UK Ta...:
Breaking news: 26-year old parent angered by the 'offensive' shape of a goomba!
Mariominer commented on Hands On: Here's What The 3DS Version Of Te...:
Looking forward to it. My first Terraria experience was on iOS, as it was the cheapest one. I kind of liked it, but it got more tedious as you progressed. The controls look nice, the touch screen controls will probably be what I use. Might get both versions, probably not at the same time, and not for certain.
Mariominer commented on Battleminer:
@mas sorry for late response, lost my account details my friend code is 1547-5315-3818. Tell me when you add it, I'll add yours now.
Mariominer commented on Video: Capcom Launches Cute Monster Hunter Tra...:
Cute, looks just like the Meownster Hunters' quests without the strings on everything.
Mariominer commented on Review: Titanic Mystery (3DS eShop):
Well, find the object games often lack being unique or having much individuality. I'm not surprised that the objects stand out, if you use a background that looks nice but your objects don't look as nice, that's what happens.
Mariominer commented on amiibo tap: Nintendo's Greatest Bits Bringing ...:
Well, nice. That's good for something. I'll probably get both. Have to do something with the storage that I still have, but in a shortage, Amiibo Tap would be the first to go.
Mariominer commented on Poll: Would You Like Mario Kart 8 and Super Sm...:
I love MK8 DLC to death, but smash costumes? Did they not have anything better to do, like work on Lucas or something? But I do like the character DLC's, that's good.
Mariominer commented on Review: Tilelicious: Delicious Tiles (Wii U eS...:
Hmm, I wouldn't have gone with the level layout, but I like how it uses pictures rather than numbers. Though the hints on the side disappearing is odd, seems like an unfinished feature rather than something meant to be there in my opinion.
Mariominer commented on Weirdness: Super Meat Boy Is Calling For Your ...:
Nope, I've already cast my vote for King Bomb-omb.
Mariominer commented on Review: Super Mario 64 (Wii U eShop / Nintendo...:
10/10!!! That's amazing! I'm glad that it got this score. This game is so good and definitely deserves it.
Mariominer commented on Video: See for Yourself How 200cc Speed Affect...:
Looking forward this! I'll also get the DLC. I a going to have much fun zooming around the track at lightning speeds.
Mariominer commented on Mario Maker:
Very succinct description...
Mariominer commented on SmileBASIC:
I think that this will be great and I'm very excited for it's release this year. This will allow me to make some sweet 3D games on my portable 3DS. Already very sweet having the DSIware one.
Mariominer commented on Nintendo Executive Discusses the eShop, Indies...:
Wow, I see a lot more articles about the EShop nowadays. Perhaps it might be a group of articles happening in the trend, like the Amiibo trend, stuff like that. But still, nice article.
Mariominer commented on Nintendo Announces Fresh Release Details on a ...:
Wow... When I look at this list it makes me realize that I should probably look out for games on the eShop too, because most of these impress me. I normally only look forward to retail games, but this makes me change my view of the eShop.
@mystman12 I know, right? When will SmileBASIC come? I've been holding back so I don't regret not waiting until it comes out, but at this rate I keep checking to see if it's out whenever I suspect the eShop having an update. I'm not sure who or if there is a protagonist on swords and soldier 2, but I may want it from what I can tell it is like.
Mariominer commented on Pokémon Shuffle Hits One Million Downloads:
Yup, I'm frugal when it comes to spending money on games after I bought fish bucks on ... (shudder) tapfish. I never plan to do a micro transaction again after that nightmare.
Mariominer commented on Character Art From Forthcoming Disney Wii U Ti...:
This... why it does indeed look like art from clash of clans! Just... Different in the designs.
Mariominer commented on Review: Best of Arcade Games - Air Hockey (3DS...:
I swear, it's rare to see a GOOD review from this site... probably because of how little things deserve it.
Mariominer commented on Rumour: Rayman Could be Planned as DLC in Supe...:
Well, the video was taken down.
Mariominer commented on Poll: Are You An Early Adopter With The New Ni...:
I ordered mine on Walmart.com because everybody was sold out (should've pre-ordered it.) Oh well, it still says it will come by Thursday, so I hope that they do have them online because that would be good. So, for now I think that I'll try to just get my hands on a Toon Link amiibo while I wait.
Mariominer commented on Flipnote Studio 3D Now Available To North A...:
STILL can't get on. Even when I can it doesn't come up...
I still can't find it
Club Nintendo has traffic issues...
...I got on, but it wasn't there. Though when I clicked something else it kicked me off... So yeah...
Aww, can't get to CN right now... Better try again later.
Mariominer commented on Nintendo Looking To Offer Affordable Smartpho...:
@Grumblevolcano, Your point is valid. This could end up with a lot more "fake" games coming to the handheld. However, Sataru Iwata wants to EXPAND consumer choices. So there will still be the normal, high quality games that you expect from nintendo and other third-party companies, but with more small games. However you also will probably need to search for these games more, but if you stay updated than it won't be that bad.
Mariominer commented on Flipnote Studio 3D Has Been Delayed Once Again...:
Man. For me Club Nintendo is working. However, I wonder if taking it off was just to prevent further crashing of the site. By now i think that they should just mail them out though.
Mariominer commented on Future New amiibo Functionality? | Ask Alex:
I can definitely see another slight version too. Of course, it wouldn't be big enough for them to announce (like I didn't even know that there was a Xbox 360 S before my brother told me).
Mariominer commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. Melee (GameCube):
I don't have this, but I have a gamecube... maybe I'll get this... someday...
Also first 2015 reply on this review
Mariominer commented on Ocarina Of Time 3D Reportedly No Longer In Pro...:
Well I don't have to worry because this was the first game that I got, so I got it probably like July 2011. Though uncertain.
Mariominer commented on 3DS Web Browser Exploit Allows Game Boy Color ...:
Man, I wish that Nintendo could just release the emulator separately with DLC of the different games. Of course that probably wouldn't work out too well, it could have some good effects, like that Nintendo could just release the code for the games and include the rating that it got when it was originally released. That way, the manual may be hard to get around but some steps could be skipped, like having to plug all of the stuff into the emulator and release it separately.
Mariominer commented on Review: Scarygirl Illustration Kit (3DS eShop):
Meh, I don't really like drawing (though I did love flipnote studio and inchworm animation) so the negative review doesn't really affect me. However I do like reading the negative reviews because they are entertaining for a sick, twisted guy like me > Just kidding, though they are entertaining for me.
My first first comment!
Mariominer commented on Weirdness: Hands Up If You Knew About the Supe...:
WHAT?!?!?! I've only recently started playing it (I don't have an NES, but my friend does, and I rarely play the virtual console) But this seems way to simple to NOT be common knowledge... Ahh well, maybe it was discovered by rage-mashing when they died
Mariominer commented on Video: YouTube's Gaming Historian Takes Offens...:
I don't necessarily find any of this offensive. If you want to be "easily butthurt" then fine, complain all you want, but it is kind of annoying and expected something more harmful by the subtitle.
Mariominer commented on Nintendo eShop Cards Are 10% Off at Best Buy T...:
Amazing! A sale on what's practically a gift card? I'm going to need to go to Best Buy today to stock up the software on my new Wii U.
Mariominer commented on Feature: 12 Days of Nintendo Christmas - Day Five:
What? I thought it had to be a Nintendo game. I say that because Sega develops pretty much everywhere... But what has been typed is typed, so let's go on."6 gamers playing" or"6 chain-chomps biting!"I may have other ideas later...
Mariominer commented on Feature: 12 Days of Nintendo Christmas - Day Four:
5 red coin rings!!! You know you love it!
Mariominer commented on Rosalina & Luma amiibo Exclusive to Target in ...:
I looked up "defected Amiibo" online and a ton of results popped up... however why is it that a bent sword is always 'rare'? I mean that could happen during shipping rather than in the factory where they make them. I personally want to get Amiibo figures but will wait until after Christmas to see what I get for Christmas to see what I should buy (that's why I only have SSB4 3DS not Wii U)
Mariominer commented on Professional Super Smash Bros. Melee Player Ta...:
Tier lists really are just opinions. There isn't any official Nintendo tier list because Nintendo likes everyone to think every fighter stands a chance. While that certainly isn't true at some occasions, that's what the update 1.0.4 was supposed to do: balance out fighters. So if another update like that happens, Tier lists would all change. And, if strategically played, all fighters can win against other fighters. Such as some weaker fighter going against anyone can still win if the other person hasn't mastered their recovery.
Mariominer commented on Review: Disney Planes: Fire & Rescue (Wii U):
This is why I don't buy games based off of movies-they are generally just a quick pluck at the video game market vs the movie market.
Mariominer commented on Sony Pictures Is In Negotiations With Nintendo...:
Dude, this should happen. I mean, sure it's Sony, but it's not too bad of a deal. As long as Nintendo is smart, nothing too bad will happen. And I'd probably watch it. Because that would be so cool.
Mariominer commented on 3DS Brawler One Piece: Super Grand Battle! X I...:
This is cool-I don't have any Amiibo yet, but I do want one. The main reason I haven't gotten one yet is because I only have MK8 as the only Amiibo available title in my possession, and I don't fancy how weak the Amiibo compatibility is. If I wanted to look like Mario, I'd choose Mario! But I'd love to see third party software that incorporates Amiibo. Or downloadable titles. Nintendo, I think, should embrace Amiibo right now because people love it so much it's out of stock a lot. Make more Amiibo titles, Nintendo! They don't have to be so big.
Mariominer commented on Talking Point: What's Next For amiibo?:
I'm assuming that Amiibo would work similar on Mario Party 10 as to SSB, where you can level the Amiibo up and customize it (although the latter isn't likely unless you could customize normal characters). If it's not and is a missed opportunity like MK8 (Like seriously, can't they just have the Amiibo be racers or something cool?) then that would be kind of sad. I think that Amiibo has a good opportunity on every game, but just that the different choices that are done aren't too sweet. I guess that could be to maintain the game to be themed still how it is, but then the DLC on MK8 wouldn't fit that, so Amiibo shouldn't be a big deal to change the theme. Plus it wouldn't UNLOCK the racer, just allow you to play as it if the Amiibo has been used.
Mariominer commented on 3DS System Update 9.4.0-21 Brings a Whole New ...:
My 3DS is so stable, it won't even crash when you throw it out the window-of an airplane
What about a game that you'd normally play with a Mii with certain powers derived from your "Favorite Color". Such as someone wearing red could have a fireball move and a generic melee move (perhaps like a punch or a mace or something). You could play it as an RPG and then when you tapped an amiibo figure onto the gamepad, you could play as that character (And if they have different models of figures, each would have their own range and melee move assuming it defines what model it is) and each character would have it's own moves. As an incentive to use the figures, you would be stuck with up to level 10 Miis, but Amiibos would be able to go up to level 100 or some higher number. The ammibo would be able to get different moves as it levels up, such as a Mario figure might be able to get an ice range instead of a fire range or a tanooki melee. The amiibos would be overall better than just Miis, plus updates could be made to be able to support EVERY AMIIBO AVAILABLE. Of course, not necessarily, but it would be nice to have it. It could be a free roaming game, like World of Warcraft but like... World of Amiibo or something haha. What d'ya think? Wouldn't it be cool?
