MeloMan commented on Weirdness: Hands Up If You Knew About the Supe...:

I want to say that my cousin knew of this way WAY back when I played SMB for the first time, but me just starting out with Nintendo, it was highly unlikely I'd remember this. And SMB STILL continues to hold secrets!



MeloMan commented on Nintendo Download: 29th January (Europe):

If the report was correct, then we should be getting Gunman Clive 2 this Thursday in NA. At that price too? I can't wait. I just hope the rest of Thursday's line up is decent.



MeloMan commented on Weirdness: According To McDonald's, Mario And ...:

I understood the whole commercial including the Mario/Bowser segment and I dunno, it was entertaining and kinda humorous. I didn't take it serious at all and just respected the nod McD's gave to the two iconic characters.



MeloMan commented on Video: New Nintendo 3DS and XL Batteries Put t...:

Compelling... I get an extra 3/4 of an hour out of an N3DSXL over my 3DSXL. Still not high on my to do list due to other expenses I have to take care of this year, but if the timing and the price are right at the right time.....



MeloMan commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X Will Feature An "Outsta...:

I loved the British accents of the first one, but, I notice a whole lot of "United States" going on in the videos, so are we getting American english voices this time I wonder? It would at least make more sense imo...



MeloMan commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

As I expected, MANY people have asked for Xenoblade Chronicles for Wii to make it. I hope it does make it for anyone that hasn't played it, such as a couple of friends of mine that never got around to one of the must play RPGs of modern times. I'm hoping hard gang, I'm hoping REAL HARD it comes to pass :)



MeloMan commented on Talking Point: Club Nintendo's Closure Is An E...:

From what I take from this, basically the eShop would integrate more with what "was" Club Nintendo. I'm still hoping for an eShop app that Nintendo could release to further on this, but all will be revealed in due time...



MeloMan commented on Poll: Nintendo's Year of Adventure on Wii U an...:

I honestly can't decide between Zelda U and XCX as the last footages of both games was incredible. I feel like XCX is slightly in the lead for me because I know a little more about the game and have seen so much more jaw dropping-ness thus far. But I really hope both games can make it this year.



MeloMan commented on Hands On: We Check Out The New Nintendo 3DS XL :

The things that really tempt me are the viewing angle and C stick... Everything else is "ok". I'm on the fence about this, as I need to keep major purchases in check right now. So I'll probably ride it out unless some kind of offer or deal comes along that's too good to pass up.



MeloMan commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

Aaaaand again, no GC VC. I won't lie, my main reason is to be able to play Skies of Arcadia Legends IF SEGA wanted to even bother, other than that, I've played most of what I've wanted to play. Aaaand, I was hoping to hear that the GBA VC would make a formal debut for 3DS, but... the wait continues. As for whether the Wii U Pro Controller would be playable for Wii games, I really don't see why not. Chances are, the Wii games will simply feature off screen play with no other enhancements, or, HD enhancements at most, but not much game difference since we'll still be using the Wiimote for the majority of Wii games. The question would be, is the Classic Controller going to be supported. If so, that leads to a new question of, Gamecube controller/adapter integration. Sorry for the run on, but Nintendo is really baby stepping this whole process unnecessarily.



MeloMan commented on New Nintendo 3DS Release Date Confirmed for 13...:

Ugh... damnit. I don't... WANT to buy one or even be tempted to get one that soon, Nintendo. The better viewing angle, 2nd analog, headphone jack in the middle, faster processing is calling my name. THIS is the 3DS I've TRULY been waiting for. Must... resist... temptation... for part of the year..... [cries in corner]



MeloMan commented on The Bomber's Notebook Will Be Revamped in The ...:

As much as the thought of playing a Zelda "on a clock" made me uncomfortable way back in the day, I must admit, it resulted in one of the best gameplay mechanics I've seen in videogames. I'd love to see it used in a whole new setting, but that's ok. Enjoy anyone who never played it, and enjoy (again) to those who have romped it once before :)



MeloMan commented on GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U Stock on...:

So far so good with my Wii U Pro Controller, and I don't feel like I'm "smashing" it. I would still like to stay in practice with a Gamecube controller, so until I don't have to chase the world for an adapter, I think I will give in to getting an Hori pad. You gotta do better than this, Nintendo... if you knew SSB was going to be huge for the fans, why produce a hand full of adapters? No excuses.



MeloMan commented on Review: F-Zero: GP Legend (Wii U eShop / Game ...:

I never got around to this or Maximum Velocity back in the day, and I definitely played the sprite based original, but once I played GX, I haven't felt compelled to return back to the sprite based days of F-Zero. Nevertheless, since a new one from Nintendo is only in the consideration phase, I may just go ahead and pick this and MV up since I can play them on the big screen now. That, and I'll look forward to the next F.A.S.T. from Shin'en.



MeloMan commented on Mario Bros. Coin-Op High Score World Record I...:

I didn't even know there were any record holders for the original Mario Bros... that's one of my fav ol' skool guilty pleasures that I'm sure I probably could conceive challenging the record. Guess I'll have to challenge myself to see :)



MeloMan commented on Review: NES Remix Pack (Wii U):

I was waiting for a good time to play both of these on the eShop, like, a discount or something ($15 for each? And I have other games to play? Ouch). Once I heard a retail release of BOTH was coming, I tossed it right into my GameFly queue and won't be paying one extra cent. Since I didn't miss anything the first go around with these, I won't be feeling cheated, so I'm looking forward to playing these.



MeloMan commented on Review: Super Mario Bros. Deluxe (3DS eShop):

I always wanted to play this back in the day, but I think this will end up being an eternal pass for me from now on. IIRC, the biggest draw I liked was seeing both bros on the screen at once running through a level so I assumed 2P simultaneous play, if that is in fact, true about the game.



MeloMan commented on Review: Fairune (3DS eShop):

I'll keep this game in mind when I only have a couple of bucks to spend and my backlog clears up a little bit. Not to mention, at the cheap price, if it goes on sale, I'll DEFINITELY scoop it up.



MeloMan commented on Reminder: The Nintendo Network Premium Promoti...:

Usually I follow most news but this information got by me for some reason. I think I saw it on here once, but I didn't have a Wii U at the time so I didn't pay close attention. It turns out I had $10 waiting on me in credit that I was about to lose. Now I feel like an idiot... I just missed the discount for Another World because I didn't have any money, and I could've used this :(

Ah well, at least I can use it for Duck Hunt and the Attack of the Monsters discount tomorrow :)



MeloMan commented on Level-5 Confirms Some Handsome 3DS eShop Festi...:

FINALLY Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale is on sale!! I love point and clicks/Adventure games, but I wasn't going to pay that price. THIS is coming home. Liberation Maden and Weapons De Omasse are intriguing one's to me too, but I may have to pass for now.



MeloMan commented on Review: Hazumi (3DS eShop):

I like the concept as I like brick breakers, but this one seems a little more involved than I care to learn or even have time for. To my favs list you go!
