Monkeh commented on Rumour: Cave Story 2 Teased at PAX South and C...:

Yes please! This game is utterly great. I do hope they go with the original graphics though, did not care much for how the one with 3D models looked (judging from screenshots/trailers).

Note: The one with 2D graphics and the 3D depth-filter on the 3DS is my favourite port.



Monkeh commented on Video: Donkey Kong Country Returns...To Wii U:

I already re-bought this game on the 3DS as to not having to waggle. Obviously not buying this version (would've if it had supported the gamepad).

It is an utterly fantastic game of course.



Monkeh commented on Capcom's Ryozo Tsujimoto Feels Monster Hunter ...:

Main reason I've never gotten into Monster Hunter is because the one I did buy had way too long loading-times between (IMO) very small segments, which put me off the entire game instantly. I prefer my open-worlds to actually be an open-world. Plus big open-world RPG's are pretty much always popular in the West (if done right, obviously), so here's hoping they'll make one for the Wii U with an actual open-world.



Monkeh commented on Reaction: Nintendo Direct Went Crazy With Reve...:

People who say: I was going to get the XL anyway, so it doesn't matter to me; do you have no sympathy or something? I'm from Europe and I can still see how there are plenty of people who'd rather buy the regular N3DS in the US, so it still matters to me that Nintendo would do something so stupid. Maybe next time they won't sell the thing you want in your region, will you care then?



Monkeh commented on Two Tetris Titles Pulled From the 3DS eShop in...:

I feel terrible for having missed the post about it being pulled from the Eshop in Europe.. Was thinking about buying it about a week ago, if only I had done so. :'(

Not like I don't have enough games already on the 3DS, but Tetris was my first Gameboy game together with Super Mario Land 2. Ugh, really feel like a fool for not having bought it now.



Monkeh commented on Nintendo Highlights Great Games in a Rather Pr...:

Main reason I keep buying every Nintendo console, those games are all of such high quality, just like almost every game Nintendo releases. IMO Rayman feels a bit out of place though, since it's on all platforms and Nintendo had nothing to do with it (same goes for Bayonetta 1 actually :P).



Monkeh commented on The Man Behind Sega's Wonder Boy Series Hates ...:

I hope that's just from bad translating, but it seems a bit weird he would state that the game had a very bad control system (as if it were fact), instead of just voicing his opinion how he feels about the control system.



Monkeh commented on Review: Donkey Kong Country (Wii U eShop / Sup...:

Have to agree on the bosses being somewhat lacklustre, but this will always be a 10/10 in my book. Still remember getting the console and game bundled in a beautiful box, totally awestruck. And then of course enjoying the game for years. :)



Monkeh commented on Video: How Much Faster Is The New Nintendo 3DS?:

Really makes the regular 3DS look so slow in comparison. Smash 4 has been the first actual game (so not the Eshop or other apps) where the start-up time kinda bugs me, so nice to see it'll a lot better with the N3DS. Thanks for making this video Nintendo-Life! :)



Monkeh commented on Rumour: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Dat...:

I kinda doubt 8-player battles and character DLC to be true, mostly because 8 just seems like too many players for almost all stages expect Temple and character DLC just seems unlikely unless it's for both versions. Stages (even Items) as DLC would make more sense and seems very plausible.

Rumours about needing to connect your Wii U to your 3DS to get certain characters are obvious BS if you ask me, seeing as Nintendo would never act that foolish toward people who only have a 3DS (and this is coming from someone who owns both), especially since the player-base for 3DS is much larger than it is for the Wii U.



Monkeh commented on FAQ: Super Smash Bros. For Nintendo 3DS:

IMO it's so stupid the Amiibo will be launching this year, along with the Wii U version of Smash, but the New 3DS and NFC accessory for regular 3DS (which have a lot bigger user-base than the Wii U) don't get released 'till somewhere in 2015..

@Kosmo In For Glory it's 2 stocks 5 minutes (which is plenty of time for 2 stocks), so at least there's that. ;)



Monkeh commented on Nintendo Download: 25th September (Europe):

I was interested in buying Fantasy Life, but meh, Smash 4 is coming out a week later, so I don't really feel like spending money on another 3DS-game right away. Badly timed release if you ask me, probably would've bought it a month ago. Might get it at some point down the road, if I'm not overwhelmed by the amount of other games I have to play.



Monkeh commented on Sakurai Explains Reasoning Behind Removal Of I...:

@brewsky You could play the game for all eternity and still wouldn't know if you had to do something specific to unlock them and thus wouldn't know if they were in or out unless you read it somewhere, so I don't really see how this would hurt your experience.

EDIT: If anything, it softens the blow, seeing as you won't have to play the game for ages and than go: "Where the hell are the ICs?"



Monkeh commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Will Suppor...:

Never used or planned on using a Circle Pad Pro (do own a 3DS since day 1) and I actually plan on buying a New 3DS, but I still think this is a duck move by Nintendo. Really shouldn't screw people with a 3DS like that. Hell even if you are willing to buy a New 3DS, people outside of Japan who'd want to use a c-stick in Smash Bros. 3DS will still have to wait 'till somewhere in 2015, before being able to.



Monkeh commented on Video: This Japanese Super Smash Bros. for Nin...:

@OP: Dunno how it is in your country, but here (Holland) every train-station actually does have free Wi-Fi. Mostly posting this because of the three dots you placed behind it.

But he's not using Wi-Fi, as the other players have CPU above their heads, meaning it's singleplayer.



Monkeh commented on Poll: Tell Us What You Think of the New Ninten...:

I've always bought the (direct, so not things like Gameboy Pocket) revisions of Nintendo's handhelds (GBC/GBA SP/DSi), so this will be no different.

I'm mostly excited about being able to properly view 3D now, seeing as [for me] it's impossible to constantly keep the 3DS pointed at me while playing and I'm always swaying ever so slightly. If it's now fixed so that you can at least sway a little and not notice any changes in the 3D-effect, I'll be very pleased.



Monkeh commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

Ugh, must have this. Pretty lame Japan is getting this only a month after they get Smash, while we (Europe, in my case) have to wait until at least January 2015 and probably a few months after that, so it'll most likely end up being released 4+ months after Smash's release..



Monkeh commented on Somebody At Ubisoft Really Doesn't Like Mario ...:

IMO the title is way too harsh. Just because an employee feels having actual car-brands within Mario Kart 'kinda breaks the magic', this would already imply he "really doesn't like" it? If anything, he/she just feels it's a bit out of place, which isn't that weird of a thing to say/feel, if you ask me.
