MasterBombad commented on Review: Disney Infinity 3.0 (Wii U):

@vincentgoodwin Thanks for the tips! I may start playing 3.0 when it goes down that low then!

@TheEAB Yeah, my mistake. I checked on Amazon and saw that the OT play set is just an add-on. I though both it and the Clone Wars were legit separate starter sets. I'd really freak if it was $140 for both!



MasterBombad commented on Review: Disney Infinity 3.0 (Wii U):

I've considered diving into DI with 3.0 (mainly due to being a SW nut) but it just seems like a huge investment. I think it was a bit underhanded to separate the OT and Clone Wars stories to their own packs. Why not have them together? Why do I have to shell out $140 to have both? There are fans out there who like both eras, contrary to popular belief.



MasterBombad commented on Mario Memories: How The Super Mario Bros. 2 In...:

Oh how I miss game manuals. I've had a similar source of artistic inspiration with them when I was a young'un; except they were GBA and Gamecube ones. All the Mario, Metroid, and Sonic games from back then had fantastic artwork in their manuals!



MasterBombad commented on Don't Worry, Samus Will Be In Metroid Prime: F...:

@allav866 I agree with F-Zero fans being worse off. But the sad fact is that Nintendo doesn't seem to think its worth bringing back. Hopefully that will change in the future, as I'm a fan as well.

The main reason why I compare fans is because during the days after E3, I saw so many people belittling Metroid fans who were upset about FF. People saying offhand things like "deal with it", "stop whining", "at least you're getting something", etc. Meanwhile new Mario and Zelda games were revealed with positive reception.

Why are Metroid fans suddenly being perceived as bottom feeders who should be grateful for anything, when not too long ago we had gotten a trilogy of some of the best games in the past decade? That's what I'd like to know.

Metroid has been apart of the "big three" forever; pioneering gaming and setting standards in the industry. Its seems that it could slowly be veering off into the territory of dormant franchises like F-Zero.

Metroid deserves better than that, all the well-known franchises deserve better than that.



MasterBombad commented on Don't Worry, Samus Will Be In Metroid Prime: F...:

@allav866 Well again, Metroid's status as been unstable since 2010. Most just want to see a return to form sooner rather than later.

Spin-offs are fine, but we need another main series entry that wasn't released 5 years ago to compliment it. Something like Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland wasn't released after 5 years of nothing.

I'll give you the petition, that's going too far. But let me ask you this: how many Zelda games (CD-i ones notwithstanding) have been considered "bad", or at least on the same level of mixed opinions like Other M?

Zelda fans have it pretty good from what I see.



MasterBombad commented on Don't Worry, Samus Will Be In Metroid Prime: F...:

@LztheQuack Fine, every other year. That's still miles better than:

2010: Metroid Other M
2011: none
2012: none
2013: none
2014: none
2015: none
2016: Metroid Prime Federation Force

Getting games released at a steady rate is better than nothing at all. Remakes can be great for people who want to experience them again, or for the first time. We could've easily gotten a Metroid II remake, or a collection of the 2D games within that time span. It surely would've satisfied a good portion of fans.



MasterBombad commented on Don't Worry, Samus Will Be In Metroid Prime: F...:

@allav866 Nah man, Zelda fans can be worse. Much, much worse.

Metroid fans haven't had the best of times for the past 5 years. Other M wasn't exactly a stellar entry, cancelled games like Dread and the untitled 3DS game have been dug up, and now the wildcard that is Federation Force is, as far as we know, all that's coming in 2016 with the Metroid name. Can you blame the fans?

Meanwhile Zelda fans flourish in multiple titles every year; something that just started happening in recent years, yet still aren't satisfied...



MasterBombad commented on Editorial: Satoru Iwata Embodied The Playful B...:


I've always loved this picture.

Iwata, Reggie, and Miyamoto were always working hard together, to deliver the most unique gaming experiences that no one else can. Thank you for everything Mr. Iwata, you were a truly fantastic man, and Nintendo will never be the same without you. Enjoy yourself up in Heaven.



MasterBombad commented on Nintendo President Satoru Iwata Passes Away Ag...:

Wow... this is unreal.

Thank you for everything you envisioned Mr. Iwata. Thank you for bravely leading Nintendo, and keeping its spirit alive and well through the recent decades. Thank you for giving us amazing games and brilliant gaming systems that forever changed the industry.

You were a one of a kind leader, and a truly great man. We'll miss you Mr. Iwata.



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

It really bugs me that people are telling Metroid fans to get over Federation Force and deal with it.

If there wasn't a Zelda game for 5 years, and they came out with Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland, would the Zelda fans "get over it?"

I highly doubt it.



MasterBombad commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Approach to amiibo is In...:

Amiibo will be a touchy issue with fans for a long time, it seems.

Me personally, I love the idea of collecting little statues of Nintendo characters who have never had any physical merchandise before. But my gosh, why can't Nintendo seriously try and fix these stock issues? Its gotten ridiculously out of hand at this point!

I was finally able to find a reasonably-priced Captain Falcon on ebay recently, and he was supposedly released in the US last November?

You need to get it together Nintendo...



MasterBombad commented on Next Metroid Prime Home Console Title "Would L...:

Well, that's it for me. Assuming the NX will both replace Wii U and be backwards compatible, I'll probably sell my Wii U.

This generation hasn't been very good for the big N. I only have 5 retail games for Wii U after all this time. Aside from Star Fox Zero, the future Wii U releases look pretty bleak for me; its very saddening.

Here's hoping the NX knocks it out of the park, in every respect.



MasterBombad commented on Metroid Prime Producer Wants to Make Another S...:

If this game was announced alongside a new "true" Metroid, then I wouldn't have any issues; I'm all for expanding the Metroid universe!

But I think a new main title reveal, along with FF to hold us over would've been the wiser move. Especially taking the 5 years since the last game into account.

But the fact they just released a trailer for FF with no explanation whatsoever is baffling. What kind of reaction did they expect? "Yay its something with Metroid in the title?"



MasterBombad commented on Metroid Prime: Federation Force Is The Metroid...:

As a big fan of the series; to say I was disappointed from the reveal would be an understatement.

This really wasn't the best title to show following Other M's polarizing reception. I'm sure the game itself will be fun, but this is all we get almost 5 years later? At least Star Fox looks good I suppose...



MasterBombad commented on Iwata Vows To Listen To E3 2015 Digital Event ...:

It definitely could've been MUCH better than what we got.

Too much padding on previously-announced titles, or ones not suited for the Digital Event, and not enough time spent on the new (riskier) ones; especially titles like Metroid Prime FF, which is still rubbing me the wrong way.



MasterBombad commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

It started out amazing with the puppets and Star Fox Zero, then... what happened?

Stuff like Metroid Prime FF could've used some context; like "why did they decide to go in this direction with the series?" While stuff we already knew about got developer stories...

It didn't feel like an E3 presentation overall, just an hour long Direct. WAY too many games didn't need to be in the presentation.

Nintendo, you're better than this!



MasterBombad commented on Feature: Nintendo Franchises We Want to See at...:

Eh, I've honestly never cared for Paper Mario.

I've played TTYD and SPM, but they didn't leave a lasting impression. The art style is cute, but I never liked the "trying too hard to get a laugh" writing the games had. When it comes to Mario and RPGS, I prefer the Mario & Luigi games.

But hey, kudos to everyone who like the series.



MasterBombad commented on Feature: Nintendo Franchises We Want to See at...:

I'm almost certain we'll see something Metroid-relate announced this year. What I'd like to see is a sequel to Fusion, with new elements like dogfighting and actually hunting bounties. I'd prefer the Prime style, but despite the problems Other M had, that gameplay style was good as well.

I'd take anything at his point. We need Metroid Nintendo!



MasterBombad commented on Poll: We Need to Talk About amiibo - Where Do ...:

I want to love amiibo, I really do.

I'm a bit of a collector when it comes to stuff like action figures, but the whole stock issue just puts me off. In fact, it started when I couldn't find Captain Falcon in any stores around my area that carried amiibo, but he was apparently released on the east coast of the US. (I live in the pacific northwest)

I truly hope to see this issue fixed very soon, as I'm never going to buy off a scalper. I have faith in you Nintendo!



MasterBombad commented on Talking Point: Prepare Yourselves - E3 Silly S...:

I'm definitely excited! We're finally going to see a new Star Fox after almost a decade!

I'd really love to see a new Metroid announced too. I'd be squealing like a schoolgirl if a new Star Fox and Metroid would becoming out within a couple years!



MasterBombad commented on Star Wars: Battle Pod Now Available For Home U...:

@KodyDawg Ep. III is awesome! It easily outdoes VI with its emotionally powerful climax, and dare I say rivals V with its much darker tone.

When it comes to Jar Jar, I'm a bit of a superfan. (I plan on dressing up as him for VII's premiere!) I've never seen the sheer hatred you commonly witness online for him even compare to how people are IRL, which is barely noticeable.

I consider the SW fandom online and IRL as two different animals. One's pleasant to be around, the other I'd rather steer away from entirely.



MasterBombad commented on Star Wars: Battle Pod Now Available For Home U...:

@KodyDawg You're not alone friend, I love the Prequels as well. I grew up with both trilogies, and Revenge of the Sith is my personal favorite of the saga.

Fans that are (at this point) still talking about how "bad" the Prequels are might be the ones with a problem, not the movies.



MasterBombad commented on Unofficial Metroid Prequel Uses The Original N...:

What's with the unfitting music in the videos?

Anyways, it looks interesting enough, and nearly anything Metroid-related gets me giddy. But could they of made the game look less... drab? The original Metroid was fairly colorful. Samus is just shades of blue here, while in the original she had separate hair, skin, and outfit colors.

But yeah, still not giving up hope for a Metroid announcement at E3!



MasterBombad commented on Disney Infinity 3.0 is Announced With Star War...:

I'll be very happy if it turns out as exciting as the trailer! Since Wii U isn't getting Battlefront, this could be the next best thing in terms of content and amount of playability.

Just give me Darth Vader and Jar Jar figures, and I'll be set!
