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 Captain Falcon, Lucina and Robin All Join The ...:

Gosh darn it the characters I want just aren't going to be in.

I called two new characters though. I knew it would happen.
I'm really glad they put Robin in there because if it was just Lucina I would have been severely disappointed. Good job with Robin Nintendo, but I don't know why we need any more generic swordsmen...



MasterWario commented on Talking Point: New Ideas, Not New IPs, Are The...:

The only reasons I strongly want a new Advance Wars is because:
1) There were a few limitations with the level editor in DS, which they
fixed in DoR but I can't stand that game's art style and they took out Megatanks.
2) I wasn't educated when DS launched; when I first picked up advance wars I found DS for $7. If a new game is on Wii U, I'll be able to play it with everyone. If the game is on 3DS, I should be able to convince a few friends to get it by riding on hype.
3) DS is one of my favorite games ever, I have way too many hours on it

Am I upset there was no Advance Wars announcement? No.
But at the same time, no other game has been a more enjoyable and long-lasting co-op + versus experience than this game has (other than maybe League, but that has its own problems), and if a new Advance Wars came out that was better than DS, I would always have a backup video game to play with my friends that is both fun and engaging.
And considering how fast games get old, that means quite a lot to me.



MasterWario commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3?:

@MoonKnight7 That still doesn't mean I "understand" the hype.

I dunno, maybe it's just that I understand Zelda games will take their time to get here. I hardly cared at all for Wind Waker HD when it was announced (I have beaten that one before), but now that I have it, I'm thoroughly enjoying it.

(Actually now that I think about it, the only Zelda game I actually looked forward to getting was Skyward Sword.)

Maybe I'm just weird. :P



MasterWario commented on Atlus Teases a New Etrian Odyssey Title, Makes...:

"The 2 has some people speculating that it's Untold 2, but no-one truly knows"
Doesn't the second game in the series involve you climbing a giant tree (Yggdrasil)? Hrm.....

Also the style of the height box definitely screams Etrian Odyessy.



MasterWario commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Should Beware the Slip...:

Well so far with the Callaway tournament and the Mercedes cart in Mario Kart, at least it fits and makes some sense with the genre. (Actually the Callaway cup felt completely natural to me and I'm glad they included it)

Red Bull giving wings in a Mario platformer on the other hand, would make absolutely no sense whatsoever and that's when I have a problem.

I think Nintendo's doing it right so far, because they aren't including it right away in the main game. I'd be a little bitter if the Mercedes body took away from one of the included bodies like say, my favorite one Steel Diver, but that is not the case.



MasterWario commented on Poll: Your Favourite Showing from Nintendo Dur...:

Would have been Smash Bros if there was King K Rool. lol perhaps I should stop saying that. Oh well I'll get over it soon. XD

I'm really excited for that Mario Maker, if only it came a little earlier in my younger years when I had more time for it (and by that I mean I had a TON of time).



MasterWario commented on E3 2014: Monolith's X Becomes Xenoblade Chroni...:

@Yorumi The actual gameplay did not feel like an fps, but I guess the seriousness of it all. Idk how to explain exactly, but the grisly atmospheres of FPS's I know are really off putting for me.

Err...potential Xenoblade spoilers below (area names mentioned)

To put in perspective, I could not stand Colony 6 and the Ether mine in the original Xenoblade, and if the whole game was like that I would have quit. Thankfully the two areas after that (Makna forest and Satorl Marsh) were awesome. Strangely enough Mechonis wasn't off-putting at all; I was probably just having too much fun at that point. :D

That's the other thing too. The story can be intense and I'm fine with that, but I want to be having fun (i.e. not feeling heavy because of the story) when in a non-boss battle. Xenoblade did this pretty well, since I could cool off after a cut-scene by beating up some Krabbles or slicing up some generic Mechon. XD



MasterWario commented on E3 2014: Monolith's X Becomes Xenoblade Chroni...:

It looks too intense; I'm not sure I can handle. At least the first Xenoblade was still done in Nintendo style, even if it felt like a FPS game at some points (and of course it was an RPG not a FPS :P). This straight up feels like Halo or some other FPS that makes me cringe. I guess it's all the cut-scene footage. I need some gameplay.
