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 :/



MeloMan commented on It's Not An April Fool, The Binding Of Issac: ...:

Wow, this game has really divided everyone. I know of this game, not sure if I would play it, but I'm an open minded person, yet I don't play just any ol' game. I'll look forward to a review and will do some research. I will say though for the record that everyone is entitled to their opinion, and I think both sides have made valid points. In my opinion, Nintendo is due us (i.e. the gamers) the biggest diversity of gaming library possible so that we may "select" which titles we want to play and have as big of a range to select from. Violence/gross-outs/sex are in ALL forms of media, and if you aren't in to these types of themes, please, do NOT buy them, but don't condemn the right for others who are interested in these themes from engaging in them. That way, we ALL win. Food for thought, people.



MeloMan commented on Mewtwo And Lucas Confirmed As Super Smash Bros...:

I'm going way out on a limb, but...
If Lucas can make it, and Mother 3 never left Japan, Same as Roy made it but his Fire Emblem game didn't, and even the character that is a trophy (that almost became a character from Mysterious Castle game) can appear before us, then I nominate Western release only, Mike Jones of StarTropics. PLEASE DO IT SAKURAI and I can rest peacefully in my grave one day :)



MeloMan commented on Buy Three Nintendo 64 and DS Virtual Console G...:

So, Donkey Kong 64 FINALLY rears itself. So, I guess Nintendo got past that copyright with, what was it, Jetpac or something, that belonged to Rare or whatever. Meh, I would buy DK64 again JUST to get to the point where I could play the arcade original of Donkey Kong since Nintendo refuses to re-release the original arcade edition. I just need it to come out in NA now.



MeloMan commented on Talking Point: The Legend of Zelda on Wii U Ma...:

Like I said in another topic, Xenoblade Chronicles X will be more than enough of a blockbuster this year, as long as Nintendo markets it appropriately. Combined with all the other games mentioned, there's some good stuff on tap this year. No one likes to see a franchise such as Zelda be delayed, but honestly, I don't know of too many blockbusters set for 2016, so "something" had to slide to that year. All I know is I'll just take it all in stride, no worries, it'll all work out :)



MeloMan commented on The Legend of Zelda for Wii U No Longer Set fo...:

First, I just want to say that all devs have a schedule to meet, even if new ideas are presented, but it's not often that time can get bought that easily, even in Nintendo's internal world. I feel Aonuma's explanation is plausible, but I feel this push back was more so from the top brass of Nintendo, and here's why. What is the other MOST EPIC game that Nintendo is pushing hard and is planning for a 2015 release? Xenoblade Chronicles X, period. I challenge anyone to consider the chaos of sales of those games cannibalizing each other if both released later this year? When Nintendo stated that both games would come this year, I didn't want to disappoint people, but I KNEW that wasn't a good business move and ONE of those games were about to get pushed to 2016. I just know how Nintendo works by now, lol. But it's cool Nintendo, I DO want the most epic Zelda, but I also plan to enjoy the heck out of XCX too, so... thank you! :)



MeloMan commented on Review: Xenoblade Chronicles 3D (New Nintendo ...:

Those who haven't played it, enjoy, I've had my fill on the Wii it is definitely a 9, and technically there's nothing like it from a JRPG standpoint, so I'd even give it a 10. Regardless, if you fancy yourself an RPG person, get your hands on this game, period.



MeloMan commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand On DeNA, Smart Device...:

I will say that I'm cautiously optimistic. New things always bring about fears of the unknown, and lack of information doesn't help those feelings. But realizing that Nintendo is getting beaten by themselves time and time again for not moving into the modern/future technological age on all it's fronts is a bit discerning. That's why I have optimism that this will only help Nintendo, and unless Nintendo completely loses its mind, I don't see this move as a move that will dilute the company and completely tank it... Nintendo is not THAT stupid. Poor choices, sure, but stupid, no, they haven't been around this long for nothing.



MeloMan commented on Nintendo Download: 19th March (North America):

KLONOA 2 shifts to my wish list (as did part 1), as will Elliot Quest until I either see a strong review, or I clear out some of my backlog. Other than that, looks like my wallet can breath easy this week.
