Mikes commented on Sonic The Hedgehog is Now 24 Years Old:

It must have been fate. I came across this today:

Sadly, I didn't have the money for it. I wish I could've gotten it. I doubt I'll see it there again, but if I do, I'm nabbing that first!
Happy Birthday Sonic! I'm still waiting for my Sonic Advance 4 to this day. :)

Mikes commented on Feature: Our Impressions of the Full Nindies@H...:

The only one I played yesterday was Freedom Planet. Seeing as how similar it was to Sonic, I really like it! I'll probably buy it when it releases, although I wish there was a bit more to the demo (like a boss battle, or something).

Mikes commented on Poll: How Excited Are You About Nintendo's E3 ...:

The 3DS games I'm definitely getting are Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam and Fire Emblem Fates. I actually plan on getting a good number of Wii U games, but I may need to cut the list short, so I'm keeping my eye on them (but Xenoblade Chronicles X and Yoshi's Woolly World are must-haves this year). I'd also like to have Fatal Frame, although I've never played any of the games, so I'm not sure if I'd like it.
As for SMTxFE, I was really expecting it to go along the lines of the main Shin Megami Tensei games. We haven't gotten much game-play, and it seems lighter in theme. If it's more like Persona, I'm sure it'd end up being a great game, but I was hoping for something as dark as the main games. The singing and pop-star stuff isn't convincing me. Well, I shouldn't be so quick to assume, anyway. :P

Mikes commented on Street Fighter Legend Ryu And Fire Emblem's Ro...:

Gah. I wish I didn't see this before tomorrow. I'm confused about the inclusion of Roy, as I remember Sakurai not including Chrom for the reason of no unique abilities/too many sword-fighters. Nevertheless, I'm excited, but disappointed this had to be revealed. It must be annoying for the team, how there's always some information that gets out before they try to surprise us. :(

Mikes commented on Poll: Early Impressions on Splatoon and That A...:

I got the chance to play it last night. It was pretty fun! I was paired with lots of Japanese players, and I somehow always did better than I expected. I experienced about four or so connection issues, but out of all the matches I've played, it didn't matter much.

@RichardsShadow I couldn't have said it better. They could do so much more with this kind of crossover! I'm very confused as to why they haven't tried anything different other than the Olympics. I guess I don't mind the games all that much so long as they make them as great as possible, but every time I see a new Olympics crossover, I feel disappointed.

I was pretty tired yesterday, but I decided to start the game at around 11pm. I only planned on playing for an hour, but I had so much fun that I didn't even notice the time! I'm around level 7 as far as I remember. It shouldn't be too long 'till the ranked mode is unlocked. :)

Mikes commented on Nintendo's E3 Focus to Reportedly be on Wii U ...:

This is why I hate testing month. Not once have I realized, in the past couple of weeks, that E3 isn't that far away. I've gotta catch up on news and whatnot.
Anyway, that's good to hear. I'm always hoping to see those good Wii U super-awesome game announcements, but I won't hold my breath.

Mikes commented on Poll: Did The Splatoon Global Testfire Hit Its...:

It could use some more sessions, yes. I'm sure there were plenty of people who couldn't play in that short time frame. Other than, I like the game! The competition was always fun, the minigame before matches started was a good way to pass the time, and it was interesting to see what strategies people used. I found myself hiding in the ink a lot to surprise people. :P
There were definitely a lot of people who used ink rollers, though. Whoa, they would always splat me as soon as I'd warp to an ally's spot! I wonder how I'm gonna get around that when the game releases.

Mikes commented on Diddy Kong Nerfed In Latest Super Smash Bros. ...:

Oh great. This definitely won't be the last time. Once someone figures out some technique with another character that's annoying, people will complain that one's overpowered, and they'll get patched too. :(

Awesome! For once, I actually got a Club Nintendo code not after everyone else on the planet! Like usual, my 3DS keeps pausing my download bit by bit. That's only the software update data. Gah. :(
Anyway, it's good to see everyone can finally play as him now.

Yeah! The online functions that I hoped for ever since I heard of this game has been given! I'll most likely have finished my game backlog by then, so I absolutely can't wait to set aside two days or so just to have fun with the game. Those guilds are going to be tons of fun to be in! :D

Mikes commented on New Fire Emblem on 3DS Takes Shape as Two Sepa...:

Personally, I'd like to experience both stories (it's hard enough to choose sides as it is). However, I don't think I'd be willing to spend around $80 for both (I'm a physical copy kind-of-person). If I ever ease up on buying downloads (as long as I can recover them), then perhaps it wouldn't be so bad.
I'll just be pretty honest and admit that I'd prefer they put it into one game, since I'm a consumer, and prefer whatever easy prices I can get. With that said, I'll just wait, see what they do with it in NA, and maybe I'll quit being so one-sided. :P

I was kinda hoping that we could maybe stop both sides or something, but then again, that doesn't happen too much in reality, so that's neat, I guess. Besides, it's not like I wasn't going to replay this more than four times.

Mikes commented on Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem Wii U Cross...:

It's a good thing they showed it to us now! I couldn't be happier. I was expecting that they'd either show it off at E3 or it'd be canceled.
Anyway, I'm confused as to what aspects from both series will be present, as it seems heavily similar to Persona, but I'll just remain patient. Maybe GameXplain will find something, haha.

Whoa. I've already read that it's starting on two users' birthdays. Neat. :)
It's about time there was a Direct that didn't start on a school day (or at 3 AM). Now I can finally bask in its full awesomeness! It's definitely like Nintendo to do this on April Fools Day. I can already see the live chat before the Direct airs.
"Guys! You're not gonna believe this! They're making another Mother game! Yessss!"

I'm totally okay with this. This game has tons of potential, so I don't mind a delay. Besides, as I've learned plenty of times, Zelda games being delayed are common.
Well, with this game pushed back to 2016, that leaves more time for games like Xenoblade Chronicles X to take over all the time I have! :D

This was cool! It'd be neat to be an indie developer someday. ^^
I knew there was going to be that one guy that knows his Mario Kart! There always is. :D Oh, and Runbow looks pretty neat! It sounds like it'd be a blast to play.

Ohhh. I thought it was a PSA. Well, this is still pretty neat anyhow! I haven't gotten into Brawl customs for quite some time now (transporting files and stuff was always time-consuming). Perhaps I'll get into it again someday.

Mikes commented on Nintendo Unleashes Commercials and Minigame Vi...:

I just love what Luigi goes through in those minigames. He has terrible times in Mario Party.
Anyway, I'll probably be picking this up as usual. The commercials were pretty alright. I hope this Mario Party is very good, though. Although Mario Party 9 was good, it didn't keep me coming back like the other Mario Parties.
