My favorite video games are platformers and RPGs, however my favorite series has to go to Pikmin. I would consider myself an expert at platformers, but I'm sure there are people out there much better than me! I also like video games with a lot of secrets, and I am very fond of level editors.

MasterWario commented on Review: Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon (3DS):

Seems like the only bad thing about this game is it's tedious at times. I'm ok with that. And I expect it.

And too bad about the score, was hoping this would break the mold. Mystery Dungeon series will always be a hidden gem then.



MasterWario commented on Editorial: It's Not Fun to Criticise Nintendo ...:

I don't get it. There have been more than enough good games this year. You have to review the poor ones poorly, really.

Geez, dealing with the internet must be rough sometimes; I haven't disagreed with a review this year, although maybe one or two that I thought deserved a 1+/-.

Of course, we'll see what happens with that Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon review comes out (har har, jokes people).

EDIT: Besides, I've been playing Splatoon all year anyway.



MasterWario commented on Feature: Our Top 10 Wii U Retail Games - Third...:

Smash is good but I've played too much of the series, and Pikmin 3 is good but I like Pikmin 2 way better.

So my top 3 is Donkey Kong Country TF, Splatton, and Super Mario Maker. SMM may end up lower on the list if the hype dies out, but for now it's up there.

@R-Moss I disagree. Yes it's repetitive and yes there are a lot of things it does a good way wrong, but it's a really neat idea and super fun if you come at it the right angle. I've had times where I sat down and thought it was super boring, but I've also had times where I had an amazingly good time too.



MasterWario commented on Feature: Reflecting On Three Years With The Wi...:

Oh man, it's so easy to forget all the awesome times I've had with friends on Nintendo Land.

Console is a blast, I've played games on this thing I wouldn't have dreamed of. I really don't want to buy the NX. Really don't.

Of course if Pikmin 4 ends up on it I may have to, but that doesn't change my opinion on the matter.

@Dr_Corndog I too like the whole "buy one console everything else I can get on PC" mentality.



MasterWario commented on Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl is ...:

Just waiting for untold 2 to get to $30. I know it's gonna happen Atlus, and you dug your own hole with that one.

Makes me wonder if all their sales really help that much. Kinda a shame we fork out so much for AAA titles when you can grab EO for half that price or less, and for some times a much higher quality game.



MasterWario commented on Site News: Nintendo Life Turns 10 Today:

Happy 10th! Despite a few articles irking me at times this is really one of the best internet communities I've ever been to and one of my personal favorite news outlets. It's been a blast to interact with everyone here!

Oh and let's not forget all the cool things NL does for us readers, like the Mario Maker system they have and the giveaways and the tournaments too! I'm sure I speak for most people when I say we really appreciate it!



MasterWario commented on Super Mario Maker's First Major Update is Now ...:

@StarDust4Ever Oh no they're still up. I just don't want to re-upload them because it'll get rid of all the nice comments everyone gave and I don't want too many multiple versions of my level floating has bad taste.

@Freeon-Leon Ha ha, well I look forward to playing it! Grinders + tracks make for some really interesting courses!

@Luffymcduck it definitely doesn't explain in's weird that they don't.



MasterWario commented on Feature: A Pokémon Retrospective: Generation ...:

Ruby and Sapphire was the first time I really got into Pokemon, as somehow I didn't care about it in Gen I and skipped Gen II entirely (always thought Slugma was a Gen III Pokemon lol), but the time sink was definitely Pearl.



MasterWario commented on Super Mario Maker's First Major Update is Now ...:

@SirQuincealot Because bigger is not always better! A good number of my levels are near perfect (as far as I can see through my tinted glasses), so why would I need to change it too much?

Although after tinkering around a bit, I realize adding scaling power-ups and checkpoints instantly make any level easier, so maybe I'll just keep them the way they are.



MasterWario commented on Nintendo Is Making Female Characters Cover Up ...:

@kantaroo Yeah I only gave them equipment I thought looked ok, which meant some of them had the default equipment for quite some time. Also I took Sharla out of the party as soon as possible.

@KaoruxChan To be fair it is more Monolith Soft than the higher-ups at Nintendo (I don't see the EAD group pulling any of this, even ZSS in Smash wasn't too bad), but I always thought it was strange that people complain about the censorship over here when my problem is what they did over there in the first place, to cause NOA to consider censoring anything.



MasterWario commented on Rumour: More Evidence Mounts of Twilight Princ...:

If I had to bet money one way or the other I'd say it's coming, but that'd be a shame as I just played the game for the first time like a year ago, so I won't be getting it. Also not sure if I want to see those bird things in HD.
