mystman12 commented on Poll: Which Current Generation Nintendo Soundt...:

Tropical Freeze would be an instant purchase for me, even though I've already downloaded all of my favorite tracks for free. David Wise deserves my money and the fact that I can't purchase his music yet is really dumb... Plus, I'd love having it on a collectable CD instead of just an iTunes download or something. I have purchased the Tengami soundtrack though, so there's that...



mystman12 commented on Petit Computer Getting Programmed Out of the 3...:

I already own it- And it's the most used software on my 3DS! :D Definitely pick this up before it's gone if you want to be able to try any of the games made for it, as games for Petit Computer won't be compatible with SmileBASIC.

Anyways, SmileBASIC will be an instant buy for me once it releases!



mystman12 commented on Weirdness: These Push Guards for the New Ninte...:

This actually looks pretty handy, especially since I have had a few instances of games popping out of both my original and XL models while in my pocket. (And once when I was playing Animal Crossing, put it in sleep mode for a second, and then accidentally hit it with my foot, causing the cart to come out and my 3DS to slide across the floor!)



mystman12 commented on Flipnote Studio 3D Free Download Details Point...:

This is extremely shocking. I thought Flipnote 3D coming outside of Japan was more dead than, uh... Something... That's dead... :P But here it is! While I don't really have a huge interest in it, (I'm not very good at drawing) it'll still be nice to have it, and I'm sure I'll enjoy making some animations.



mystman12 commented on Club Nintendo Rewards are Updated for Its Fina...:

Definitely some good games this month, but since I could just buy these if I wanted to, I'm just going to save my coins for, hopefully, some good physical rewards. Fingers crossed for a Tropical Freeze soundtrack!



mystman12 commented on Club Nintendo to Close, With Replacement Loyal...:

Well, this is disappointing, but I guess as long as they release sone rally good rewards in these final months and I get to use up most of my remaining coins, at least some good would come of it. I guess this is why I didn't receive an email telling me some of my coins would expire at the end of this year... Getting Flipnote is nice, but I really hope it later becomes available to everyone to download, since a lot of people aren't CN members.

Anyways, here's hoping the new loyalty program is a good replacement!



mystman12 commented on Pokémon Shuffle is a Match-Three Game With Sl...:

I hate this. Pretty much any game that uses the coins, gems, and energy mechanic I hate. There's no way I'll be downloading this, even if I wouldn't ever spend any money in it, since I'm not going to support anything like this. Rusty and Steel Diver are fine, since you can play as much as you like, whenever you like, and you actually get something for your purchases. When developers do this, they're basically tricking you into slowly paying for the game, and hoping you'll even overpay what the game is actually worth. They could have just made it $5 game without IAPs, which would have been fine, but of course they already have Trozei, so all I really see in this game is an attempt to make some quick money.



mystman12 commented on Super Smash Bros. Double CD Soundtrack Listing...:

Cool, but uh, where's the Rainbow Road medley? Or the Animal Crossing: New Leaf 7:00/Main Street remix?!?! Those were the two I was looking most forward to and they're both absent?! Hopefully this list turns out to be wrong, or more music becomes available on iTunes, because I don't want this to end up like Tropical Freeze and have a whole bunch of tracks downloaded from YouTube.



mystman12 commented on "Sonic Runners" Rumours Prove True, But It's a...:

Did anyone really think a game called Sonic Runners wouldn't be a mobile game? If it has "run" in the name it's pretty much guaranteed to be mobile. :P Maybe it will be alright but I'm not a huge infinite runner fan, so Temple Run is enough to scratch that itch, and I barely ever get that itch in the first place. If I'm playing a mobile game, 99% of the time it's The Pinball Arcade.



mystman12 commented on Matters Of Import: Collectible Badge Centre Br...:

If they release Kirby Air Ride badges I'll be interested, but otherwise I just don't really see me liking this that much, as I have my home menu sorted just right, so that I only need 1 and 1/3 pages, so I would pretty much never see these. It's still a cool idea, nevertheless.



mystman12 commented on Koji Kondo Discusses Music Creation for Iconic...:

I kinda know what he means when he talks about how the main tunes don't come to him at work. Though I'm certainly not a composer, some of the music used in the ponball game I'm making is a tune that just popped up in my head while I was mowing the lawn. Once I was finished I immediately recorded it, and years later put it in my game!



mystman12 commented on Sony Pictures Is In Negotiations With Nintendo...:

This is going to be great, or a flop, since Sony really is a hit-or-miss studio, but when they hit, some great movies can result. Also, I hope Waluigi will be in the movie!

And how come everyone hates Avi Arad and the new Spider Man movies?! I've seen both and I think they're excellent, although I've never read the comics so maybe the reason most people hate on them is because they aren't true to the comics... Which would be stupid since they are still good movies regardless.



mystman12 commented on Review: Tested With Robots! (Wii U eShop):

@Quorthon Um, no. 10 euros would roughly translate to about $10, not $500!

As for this game, just how does this stuff get approved for the eShop?! I have made my own games that are better than this (In Petit Computer), but none of them are super great and hence I'm not trying to charge people for them. One game I made is a simple, short, yet difficult (haven't even beaten it yet!) shoot 'em up boss battle game, if that makes any sense. It didn't take a long time or much effort to give the game good controls and jumping physics, and I wasn't even taking the game very seriously while I was making it. It was more of a practice project. So why countless developers can't even take the time to put good controls and physics in ther game is beyond me. And the loading times... I don't even understand how that's possible unless you're telling the program to wait one second every time it loads a tile of level data. Petit Computer, which is far, far slower than the Wii U could load these levels in a half a second. In fact, I could probably recreate this game with non existent load times and good controls in Petit Computer...



mystman12 commented on The Latest 3DS Home Themes in Japan Have Monst...:

See, those monster ones (Especially the one with the alligator) are prime examples of the problems I have with themes. I mean, who wants to hear that music whenever you go to you home menu? And who wants to hear a random water splashing noise every time you scroll 3 spaces? And the limitations with animations are pretty lame as well... Why are they limited to like, three frames of animation? I'd love to get some themes, but each one I'm interested in either has, bad menu music, weird sound effects, or one of those weird animations... There is a nice Animal Crossing one I've thought about buying though... I just wish we had options, like being able to toggle a theme's music or animations on and off. I'd be just fine with the skin themes add.

And yes, I want those cat themes. :P



mystman12 commented on Mega Man 2 Fan Remake is Now Available to Play...:

Already about halfway through the first part of the game. I've never played through an entire Mega Man game before so this is a good chance to. Although I feel a little guilty about not just buying it on the eShop Virtual Console... Oh well! :P



mystman12 commented on Anniversary: The Nintendo DS is Now 10 Years Old:

I actually won my DS Lite from a contest on the back of a hot dog package! When it arrived, I sold my transparent GBA so I could buy MySims... I have another transparent GBA now though so yeah! I never played many of the more popular DS games, but some of my favorites are WarioWare D.I.Y., Worms Open Warfare 2, and I have fond memories of Cooking Mama 2. And even DSi Ware has brought some incredible games like Petit Computer and Pinball Pulse: The Ancients Beckon. And of course, download play was (and still is) an incredible feature. Happy Birthday DS!



mystman12 commented on Anniversary: 20 Years Ago Today, Rare Resurrec...:

Donkey Kong Country is my favorite franchise! Everything from the beautiful graphics to the music to the gameplay is all just so good! So happy 20th Birthday Donkey Kong Country! I hope we get to see many more installments in the future!



mystman12 commented on Nintendo Download: 20th November (North America):

DK: King of Swing...
DK: King... of... Swing..?

I'm sorry Nintedo of America, I'm just... What? Why? No, you... you don't do that... Wow, just...

It's Donkey Kong Country's 20th Anniversary, and you give us this?!?! I've been patient with the NA Virtual Console but this is probably the most upsetting thing they've done yet. I have the games and an SNES to play them on, so I'm not upset that I can't play them, but I am upset at the fact that it's the 20th anniversary tomorrow, the games are released in all other regions, there are other people who still won't be able to play these incredible games because of this, and most of all, the released a totally different DK game that no one really cares about. If they wanted to release a GBA DK game, why not Mario VS. Donkey Kong? It's like Nintendo of America was like:

"Hey, DKC's 20th anniversary is soon! Let's release the DKC trilogy this Thursday!"
"Nah, let's release DK: King of Swing instead!"
"Okay, that sounds good! That'll totally be enough to satisfy everyone! TROLOLOLO-"

Seriously, I wouldn't be nearly as upset if DK: King of Swing hadn't been released. It almost seems like they think that's good enough, like people will just take any Donkey Kong game and be satisfied. Nope, doesn't work like that.




mystman12 commented on Review: Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire...:

I want to know about the difficulty as well. X was great, but way too easy which made me kind of wary about getting another Pokemon game. I really want a good challenge this time around, where as in X, once I got past the 1st gym leader everything was way to easy.



mystman12 commented on Teyon Games Adds Text and Voice Chat to 3DS eS...:

Looks, cool, and I'd probably pick it up if was like $2, but $8 is a little pricey for what it offers, and I'd rather just use iMessages and Facetime. I also wonder if it supports SpotPass and if I can message friends even when they aren't using the app.



mystman12 commented on 3DS Homebrew Exploit Set to be Launched on 22n...:

This could be cool to have... Once Nintendo releases their next gen portabable and the 3DS isn't making money anymore. I'm glad this guy doesn't support playing 3DS ROMs, but once he releases this and the info on how it's done, it probably won't take long for some other people to figure out how to do it. of course, I'm sure Nintendo will be on this pretty quickly as well.



mystman12 commented on Feature: Our Predictions For The Animal Crossi...:

I just want a Tropical Freeze track with music by David Wise- and I was thinking the image on the bottom right could be that. It doesn't look quite like a Dark Moon track to me. Besides that, there are literally zero new Donkey Kong tracks, which doesn't seem right since every Mario Kart has at least one.



mystman12 commented on 3DS Version Of Petit Computer Hits Japan Novem...:

Been waiting for this for a while, so I'm glad it's finally got a Japanese date pinned down! Hopefully the NA release isn't that far off, although it probably won't be until 2015.

@BensonUii Actually, this isn't just for New 3DS. By "new 3DS version" the article meant a new version of the app is getting released on 3DS. I really do think New 3DS is the stupidest name choice ever...



mystman12 commented on Eon Ticket StreetPass Relay Announced for Pok...:

Sounds like a neat way to use StreetPass! Definitely better than X/Y's StreetPass anyways. I still wish we would get StreetPass Pokemon battles, trading, Pokédex comparisons, etc. though... So many missed opportunities...



mystman12 commented on New Nintendo Direct Airing 5th November:

How is it I'm the only one here who wants something for DKC's 20th anniversary?! Especially since the image used for the article is Donkey Kong... Sitting in front of a birthday cake...



mystman12 commented on New Nintendo Direct Airing 5th November:

Something to celebrate Donkey Kong Country's 20th anniversary would be nice, even if it does just end up being the games getting released on NA Virtual Console, but I would love some sort of DKC Collection pack with all three original games and a remixed soundtrack by David Wise or something. Gamecube VC would also be awesome!

(Also Kirby Air Ride 2 please!)
