Mr_Video commented on Hyrule Warriors Nintendo Direct Arriving Next ...:

I was kind of hoping for a multi-game direct, considering all we've gotten for the past few ones are game specific directs. Ah well, still nice to see more information about this game, despite how much they've already given, I still can't make up my mind on whether I'll be getting this or not.

Mr_Video commented on Poll: Which is Your Favourite Super Smash Bros...:

It's so hard to choose just one character, they're all great in their own way...Though as far as newcomers go, Robin and Mega Man are the ones I'm most eager to play as.
As for challengers overall, Luigi, Ike, Toon Link, Sonic and Olimar are big favorites of mine...Again, it's just so hard to choose just one! Heck, the entire Smash Bros roster so far is shaping up to be the best in the series.

Sweet, now we know Lost Age is coming sometime soon (hopefully.) Perfect time to download Golden Sun and keep myself busy until it comes out in the west.
Like a few of the other commentators here, I'm really hoping that a playable Isaac is in the cards. The series deserves proper representation, along with another sequel.

Mr_Video commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

It's a bummer for anyone who bought all of these games already, they're essentially being duped out of a proper reward. But for me, considering this is my Club Nintendo year, I'm pretty satisfied.The lack of a game ost is disappointing, but I was going to buy EarthBound soon so it being a Club Nintendo reward is perfect timing!
I hope next year will have a bit more variety to it though.

Mr_Video commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

The original Wind Waker for me, it's graphics still hold up incredibly well and it was the game to introduce me into the series, so I suppose nostalgia also has something to do with it...That and I didn't like using the Gamepad too much in the HD remake. Hopefully the Gamecube adapter will fix that problem for me.
I'm actually a little surprised how many people are voting for WW, a few years ago it was rare to find anyone that would consider it their favorite Zelda game...

Mr_Video commented on New Fighter for Super Smash Bros. to be Reveal...:

This is weird, they've never done anything this big for just a new playable character. I don't want it to be another 3rd Party character though, I think they have those covered pretty well right now and are all Smash needs.
I want to guess Ridley, considering he's been requested for a long time...But I really want it to be Isaac from Golden Sun...

I've been having an RPG itch I've been unable to scratch lately, so even a teaser of a new RPG is welcome. I've also been meaning to try Etrian Odyssey since everyone praises the games so highly, so I may as well kill two birds with one stone!

Agitha's such a random character choice...I love it. Characters that come from left-field usually end up being the most interesting and fun to play as...
Just hope they'll be sure to give other entries in the series an equal amount of love as they've been showing TP so far. I'm still hoping that Ralph and Ravio will end up being playable down the line.

Didn't get to go because there really aren't any Best Buy's nearby where I live and I'm not quite dedicated to go on long drives to wait in a long line to play a demo. Hope everyone that went had fun though! Hearing about everyone's impressions so far makes me even more eager to play it...

I don't know about upgrading to a PS4, but I have been thinking about getting a PS3 if I could find one at a reasonable price. That way I could play both PS2 and PS3 games I've wanted to give a try and finally see what all the hullabaloo is about Kingdom Hearts.

Well...I'll refrain from condemning it right away but I'm also not going to have very high expectations. The track-record for good video-game based movies isn't in their favor. But hey, it could be good, probably won't top Sonic OVA, because that movie was amazing.(Being genuinely serious here.)
So long as Sega keeps up the good track record of games they've had going since Colors. No clue why everyone keeps saying all the recent Sonic games are bad.

Mr_Video commented on Poll: Your Favourite Showing from Nintendo Dur...:

It was a tough call, but I voted for Smash, the Palutena reveal and what I saw in the invitational was really awesome. Zelda would've won for me hands down if the trailer were over a minute long. But I'm seriously looking forward to exploring an open-world Zelda...Just the thought fills me with joy...
I guess I was one of the few people who didn't really think much of Splatoon though. But still, It's nice that they're treading new grounds, I'll keep an eye on it.
Also, Bayonetta coming with Bayonetta 2 sold me on the game, didn't see that coming.

Mr_Video commented on Nintendo@E3 2014 Community Now Live on Miiverse:

@HappyMaskedGuy I'm hoping for some Metroid too, as I've been meaning to give the series a try for a while now, though considering past years I'll be keeping my expectations in check. I can't say I'd put money on either of your other two predictions though, an HD Twilight Princess and Melee would kind of distract from Zelda U and the new Smash. Which is obviously something Nintendo wouldn't want to do right now.

Like everyone above, I wish that there were actually good, thoughtful comments posted on Miiverse rather than fart jokes and other nonsense. Now all I use Miiverse for is to check Sakurai's daily Smash posts and to look at a few good drawings.

Mr_Video commented on Mario Kart Month: Nintendo Life's Team Shares ...:

Mario Kart 8 has so far been really amazing, it's the best Mario Kart I've played since Double Dash. I love every single new course, which is rare, since I usually have one or two courses I'm not so fond of. Even the retro courses feel brand new!
Though it isn't exactly perfect, the roster selection feels really lacking in comparison to past MKs (Metal Mario and Pink Gold Peach feel like rather lazy additions to be honest.) and it's way too easy to unlock characters. I'm only one Koopaling short of unlocking the entire roster.
Despite it's short-comings, Mario Kart 8 is really fantastic! I'll definitely be racing online a lot this summer!

Mr_Video commented on Meet Sticks, The New Member of Sonic Boom's "C...:

I'm usually vehemently against adding more characters, considering how many critters are running around in Sonic's world already, but I'd be willing to to keep an open mind with this one. Personally she looks to much like Marine, but from the little voice samples they gave us, it sounds like she'll actually be something a bit more unique than Sonic's other friends.
And I may be in the minority, but I don't hate the voice either. Granted, it's a little cringe-worthy, but it does fit the character. I just hope they won't make her spout random nonsense every other sentence, just as I hope they don't keep Knuckles in that stereo-typical "strong but dumb" character mold that Sega's been doing the last few years.

It's gotta be Ike for me this week, hard to beat one of your favorite characters making the cut. Though the colored outlines for teams is a close second, I've always hated being forced into an ugly color palette for certain characters to play teams. Though it makes me wonder if they'll be doing anything similar for the Wii U version or not.

You know,this is the first time I've freaked out over a Smash Bros veteran returning. I'm just so happy right now! I was beginning to think Chrom would have taken his place, thank goodness I was wrong!
As for the people who were hoping for Chrom, I wouldn't count him out just yet. Who's to say Fire Emblem will always be limited to two slots in Smash, especially with it's rising popularity?

Mr_Video commented on Talking Point: For Better Or For Worse, The Wi...:

Personally I haven't used the Gamepad much for off-screen play, which seems to be the biggest reasons why people love it so much. But in all honesty I haven't ever once thought, "Wow, only this could have been done with the Gamepad." when playing a game.
So far outside from what I've heard of Nintendo Land and ZombiU, no game has really used the Gamepad creatively. It kind of makes me think Nintendo just thought that combing their two successes from last gen would be a money printer but really didn't think of ideas they could pull off with it in games.
Don't get me wrong, I like my Wii U and all, but the Gamepad just feels like a missed opportunity so far. Hopefully Nintendo will put some more Gamepad focus in their games this E3.

Mr_Video commented on Mario Kart Month: Mario Kart 8 Character Profi...:

Can't say I'll use Pink Gold Peach, but I'll probably switch between Baby Rosalina and Baby Luigi when I feel like using the light-weight class. But I do think that the roster has some wasted potential, Toadsworth, Professor Egadd, Dixie and Cranky Kong would pretty cool in my book.

Mr_Video commented on Nintendo Quashes Rumours Of New Hardware At E3...:

Considering the Wii U is only just now getting some games(albeit, slowly.) it'd be a bad move to announce a successor, especially since it's only a little over two years old. Not to mention it'd sure be a big kick in the pants to the people who actually supported the console.

It's about time we got a good deal like this! It's so rare for Nintendo to do good promotions like these. I just wish NoA would offer a bigger selection like Europe, the only game out of the ones offered is Wii Party U, which isn't really my cup of tea to be honest. Ah well, free is free!

@AshFoxX I'd definitely recommend giving Pikmin 3 a try, it's the best game out on Wii U at the moment in my opinion.

After playing over 60 hours into Bravely Default , I have to say it's one of the best RPGs I've played in a while. So I'm definitely looking forward to Bravely Second.
I just really hope they don't make the game as repetitive as the second half of BD is.

I can't say I was fond of the mid-riff, but I actually liked the pony-tail, it made him a little bit more recognizable in a sea of blonde-spiky haired heroes. But I don't really see why a design modification was necessary, there really wasn't anything wrong with it.

Mr_Video commented on Nintendo Is Working On The Next Mario Game, Bu...:

The release target better be a few years from now, Mario really needs to be shelved for a while. I loved 3D World, but they're really milking the series now. It'd be nice to see some of the more neglected IPs see some new titles, like Metroid or F-Zero. (Both of which I sadly never had the opportunity to try.) Or even better yet, something completely new.

@Funny_Moblin Haha, well no, I would also like to actually use the character, not just stare at them. :P If that were the case I'd take your suggestion and plaster a image of Lucas in all his glory on my ceiling.(Heck the idea is actually pretty tempting...)
But yeah, sorry that we don't see eye to eye on which characters are noteworthy enough to make an appearance in Smash. Just my opinion is all. I'll enjoy the game regardless of who or who doesn't make an appearance and I hope you will too. :)

Mr_Video commented on Talking Point: The Timing of Nintendo's Super ...:

@Funny_Moblin Well yes, yes I do my good sir. Lucas wasn't the worst offender in terms of clone characters. But yeah, I agree that his move-set could have been something more unique.
I just want to see him, and Ike return because I love the characters and the games they originated from. I hope that isn't too unreasonable.

Mr_Video commented on Talking Point: The Timing of Nintendo's Super ...:

I'm really excited to see what they reveal this direct, I mean there has to be at least one noteworthy announcement if it's completely devoted to Smash Bros. Or well, I hope so anyways.
I don't really need a release date. I'd prefer if they didn't announce a date prematurely and then rush it to make their deadline only for it to be an unenjoyable game.
All I really want is some more game-play details like a new game mode, and a newcomer reveal. It might be wishful thinking asking to see Lucas and Ike confirmed for a return, but I will definitely be crossing my fingers... :P

I have to say I like his list of music sources, particularly Fire Emblem and the Mother series. But this sort of project sounds like the type Nintendo would shoot down in a heartbeat, unfortunately.
But I wish him the best of luck reaching his goal. It's definitely something I'll keep an eye on.

Mr_Video commented on Soapbox: Nintendo Soundtracks - Where Are They?:

Yeah, it'd be nice to legally purchase soundtracks for Nintendo games and not have to import it or pay some outrageous sum for it. There have been a lot of soundtracks they've composed over the years that are just amazing, something I'd be willing to buy, but sadly can't.
The fact that they're releasing Pokemon OSTs gives me a little hope that we'll see Fire Emblem Awakening, Super Mario 3D World and DK Tropical Freeze's soundtracks one day. Not to mention all the wonderful osts from their hundreds of other titles...

Mr_Video commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Confirms Playable Cranky Kong...:

Yeah, I don't understand all the negativity. Was it a knock your socks off reveal? Far from it. But seriously, I don't see this as bad. They're marketing for a game that's coming out sooner than say...A new Metroid or Zelda. Which in my opinion, isn't a bad thing at all.
It's not like they ever said, "Yep. We're gonna reveal Zelda U." Never assume things, friends.
That aside, I'm really looking forward to Tropical Freeze!

Mr_Video commented on Nintendo Addresses Confusion Surrounding Wii U...:

I'm not sure I understand all the negativity around this commercial. It's a good move to focus on the younger audience, with Christmas coming and all. Commercials like these will definitely sway parents looking for a kid-friendly experience towards the Wii U. Xbox One and PS4 are definitely missing that audience from the ads I've seen from the two.
Though I really do hope Nintendo will dish out some ads targeting older audiences soon. The Wii U definitely isn't just for little kids, they should make that more clear.

Ah perfection, a goal that will always be out of reach...Really, I just find the concept of perfection to be something that can never be achieved. There'll always be someone who will dislike one thing, and another who'll really love that aspect. Really, it's all up to the opinion of the player if it's perfect or not.
But I do appreciate that he's giving his A-game with every new installment of the series. It's a nice ambition and it really tells a lot about his standards as the series' producer.

Mr_Video commented on Marth Confirmed as the Latest Challenger in Su...:

While I'm glad to see that Marth has finally made his inevitable return and we have an FE rep, I'm still worried about Ike. I really hope he isn't benched because of Chrom or heaven forbid Lucina... Don't get me wrong, I liked Chrom just fine, but as far as FE lords go, he felt bland.
I think Ike still deserves the place as the secondary Fire Emblem character. For one, he starred in two games already, not to mention he actually has a descendant that practically acts as a homage to him in Awakening. Plus there's the fact that to this day, he's the only FE protagonist not to be of noble-birth.
Ranting aside, I'm just gonna keep my fingers crossed. :U

Mr_Video commented on "Uninformed" Store Staff Are Hurting Wii U Sal...:

This actually holds some truth to it. When I went out to get my own Wii U at Target, I overheard another customer coincidentally asking one of the tech-employees about the Wii U. The employee basically said that there was no difference between it and a Wii. This wasn't when it first came out either, this was literally only three days ago.
While I realize Nintendo could have done a better job with marketing and making it clear that the Wii U is it's own console, it's still a little sad when people don't even know the difference between the products they're selling.

Mr_Video commented on Talking Point: Fire Emblem: Awakening - The Bi...:

@Ernest_The_Crab No, the difficulty didn't have much to do with being in control of completely different units every couple of chapters, it was actually a lack of balance in the difficulty levels. The game's normal mode is practically the equivalent of the other series entry's hard mode. I to this day still haven't been able to get past Part 1 on normal mode.

@Shiryu Haha, I already do actually! I've loved all the work the composers have done in the series so far, but the music in Awakening is by far my favorite soundtrack done by them. I'm just glad someone appreciates the music in the series enough to make such beautiful arrangements of them!

Mr_Video commented on Talking Point: Fire Emblem: Awakening - The Bi...:

@Haywired Actually, Radiant Dawn is considered one of the hardest games in the series. Shadow Dragon is pretty balanced, but the character balance kind of felt a little off. So I wouldn't say they're the series norm. If you liked Sacred Stones, then I'm sure you'll enjoy Awakening.

Mr_Video commented on Nintendo: Phones And Tablets Aren't Games Devices:

Yeah, gotta say, tablet games aren't really games in my opinion...They're more like time killers if anything. Not that the games are what people buy iPads/tablets for anyways, they're just a nice addition to it.

Anyways, after reading the comments on this story here, I only got one question...Why're there Nintendo haters on a Nintendo based website? :P I honestly don't understand it. Do people actually sign up to a website just to throw out hate comments? Sounds like a waste of time...Just what I'm thinkin' though.
