MeloMan commented on Reaction: Nintendo Dropped the Ball, Not the M...:

I live in Detroit myself (didn't know so many metro Detroit and Michigan people were in here) and it's disappointing to know that even if I wanted to participate in this, I'd have to get to Schaumburg, IL. Would it really have been that hard to have like, everyone else who has an internet connection, compete between certain times, and let those be the qualifiers for the final round(s)? I get that it's celebrating the spirit of the NWC1990, but damn, we don't have to still have a tourney by those "day's standards", do we?



MeloMan commented on ​Famitsu Reveals Some Fresh Details on Fire ...:

I love everything I've heard, but I'm a little worried about the whole one side or the other thing. I'm likely to do the light version, as I like to enjoy FE rather than scrape through it. And I usually only give FE a go around only once, but the dark side, hard mode or not, is tempting me to invest a ton of money into this installment. I can't wait for more details. Never thought I'd be nerve-wracked about a new FE...



MeloMan commented on Nintendo Download: 14th May (North America):

Ugh. AoT:HiC "would" be my pick, but I really can't stomach $40 right now. I don't really want to wait for a price drop either. Guess I'll have to pony up the cash some time soon...



MeloMan commented on Review: High Strangeness (Wii U eShop):

You aren't the only one finishing Tropical Freeze lol

I don't know why, but I feel like the creator took inspiration from Secret of Evermore in crafting this game. Weird. But either way, maybe I can catch this game on a sale in the future. In the meantime, it will fit nicely into my backlog.



MeloMan commented on Review: Runny Egg (3DS eShop):

I wondered if this was another runner game and/or another pointless game, although the title still made me chuckle. I'm actually glad to hear this is a decent game, because I actually pondered scooping it up for short bursts of play. I think for now it will go to my infinite vacuum known as a gaming backlog, but at least it's a worthy addition :)



MeloMan commented on Mario Kart 8 Passes Five Million Sales and eSh...:

And as usual, while doom and gloom is always predicted by people, Nintendo continues to still print money with their IPs. Nintendo's not leaving anywhere, anytime, soon until they take themselves out. That, is all.



MeloMan commented on High Strangeness is Out Now on Wii U in North ...:

I strangely like what I saw... I will need a review of course, but I like the concept this has of jumping between bits. Oddly, it seems to have a Secret of Evermore-ish, maybe even Earthbound-ish vibe to it, so I'm definitely intrigued.



MeloMan commented on Review: Titanic Mystery (3DS eShop):

I feel these hidden object games are half of what a full point-and-click/adventure game would be. Why can't we get more of those kinds of games? Mrrgrrgrr...



MeloMan commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd April (North America):

Already bought the MK8 DLC packs 1 & 2 way back when, so that should be downloaded and ready to go when I get home. So, I'll be buying and downloading Mewtwo-- but I can't get him until the 28th though... oookaay...



MeloMan commented on Nintendo Download: 16th April (North America):

I got the Smash DLC last night and got the bundle of the Mii outfits last night. I'll get MewTwo later this month. DK64 is mine, and the arcade perfect DK game within will be mine once again... oh how I miss it. Yes, I will pay $10 and play a portion of the game JUST to unlock it. Fairune was already dirty cheap, and it's going to be discounted further? Guess I'll really have to pick that up now. I don't know why, but I'm still a sucker for some Streetpass games, so I'll likely get the bundle on that too. On top if this, MK8 to play. I've got a packed night ahead of me.



MeloMan commented on Weirdness: Street Fighter's Ryu is Now Being R...:

At this point, ever since pandora's box was opened to 3rd party characters in SSB, anything is possible and I will no longer deny the possibility. At the same time, if we're going to pull a character from Capcom's famous franchise, then it should also in theory open the door for a character from Namco's premiere fighting series Tekken, and specifically Jin. Further, Namco helped co-develop SSB4, so I'd say that increases his chances as much as Ryu's if not more.

As for Roy, lessee-- Marth is a finesse swordfighter with power at the tip, Lucina is basically Marth with even power along the blade, Ike is your slower but more powerful great sword user, and iirc, Roy had his power near the middle of the blade. Hmmm... "technically" there's still room for him among the FE characters, but at what point is it overkill? I like Roy, but if he doesn't come back, I actually wouldn't be mad.



MeloMan commented on Games Consultant Believes Nintendo NX Could Be...:

Good anlayses. I like the particular statement "No sane analyst ever bet against Nintendo." Tis true, that's why I wait and see before I start slamming Nintendo against the wall. They get it wrong sometimes, but other times they get it right.



MeloMan commented on Review: Donkey Kong 64 (Wii U eShop / Nintendo...:

I'm pretty sure it was 110% for this game (DKC 101%, DKC2 102%, DKC3 103%), but... eh...

So the arcade cabinets are still in the game... that's GREAT news. I will rebuy this game just to unlock those. Original Arcade Donkey Kong (and Jetpac) here I come... again!



MeloMan commented on Analyst Thinks Nintendo Is Already Winding Dow...:

Though we know a little of the essence of what the NX is, I'm still not understanding all this "NX is the next console" talk. I recall Nintendo saying "platform", but not specifying that it is a successor to the Wii U. The message I got is this is something designed to strengthen Nintendo's current "hardware" and help "future proof" for the next hardware generation once it's time, but whatever. I'm not joining predicting the doom and gloom of the Wii U as the AAA games it has are still getting loads of air time despite lacking in popular opinion, and there's still lots to come, so the system is nowhere near dead, profits or not. Wii U likely won't begin biting dust until 2017 at the earliest.



MeloMan commented on Video: Feast Your Eyes On The Brand New Bravel...:

Knowing that this is coming, I elevated BD way up in my backlog and am currently playing through it as we speak. It's funny... I turned my friend on to this game, he played it, beat it, loved it, and I'm the one missing out :/
