It definitely looks fun. Hopefully they'll make it fun to play as well.

The iPad is portable, fast and light. I love the Gamepad, but it is not portable, it is also relatively slow and heavy. The iPad's capacitive touch screen is also much more responsive than the Gamepad's resistive touch screen. Shooting for iPad parity is a nice idea, but the Gamepad is not even close to being as versatile. I'm hoping Nintendo is working on that problem for their next system, but that is likely still many years away.

It could also be something like A Link Between Worlds where you could fight other people's version of Link.
Just give me another Picto Box and the ability to share photos on Miiverse and I'll be happy.

Make it so.

@nilcam I had the same thought. My wife loved manning the weapons in Double Dash. I thought it was a great way to play. This sounds like it'll be a hit for us for the same reason.
Nareva commented on Review: LEGO The Hobbit (Wii U):
That's a shame. I probably would have bought this at a 7 after a price discount, but 4 is just too low. My gaming time is limited enough that I generally disregard anything rated 6 or below. There are exceptions, but they are few.
Nareva commented on Review: Ittle Dew (Wii U eShop):
Looks like I'll be getting this after all.

Sweet. I have none of them. Late adopter FTW!
Nareva commented on Video: What Could Super Mario Galaxy Look Like...:
Other than Xenoblade, which I haven't played, I would much rather Nintendo worked on new games. If they do more HD ports it should be of older games. SMG is great, but way too recent. Maybe more GC games like Wind Waker, which was excellent.
Nareva commented on Video: The Dubious Charm Of Senran Kagura Burs...:
I really don't care either way if people want to play these kinds of hyper-sexualized games, but I find it somewhat ironic that Nintendo Life is so vigilant about protecting its readership from the corrupting power of "coarse" language in comments, but is completely fine with this kind of sexual content, once even chiming in with a breast referencing pun for an article on this game. For my part, I'm much more tolerant of "bad" language than I am of sexual language among my friends and in my home. I'm just curious why Nintendo Life is okay with one type of "adult content" and not the other.
Nareva commented on Best Buy's 20% eShop Card Discount is Back:
Nice. I bought 2 $50 cards last time. Maybe I'll get three this time. It's a great deal, especially with the deluxe digital discount on top if it.
Nareva commented on Bravely Default Producer Outlines a Continued ...:
I'm about 25 hours and loving it. The last half dozen RPGs I've played didn't hold my attention, so this is great. And I really love the ability to turn off encounters entirely. I rarely do it, but it's a great feature, especially when going through an area with weak enemies where battles are of no benefit. Looking forward to the sequel.

@the_truth You do realize this is a very short interview about a 600+ page book? I imagine he elaborates at some length there.

Teslagrad looks the most interesting to me. I'll definitely pick that up.

I'll probably buy this. I've wNted to check it out for a while.
Nareva commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:
The Starship Damrey. Really enjoying it.
Nareva commented on Final Fantasy VI On Android Is Pricey and Look...:
I think the art style looks terrible. I really don't like it. I'll stick with the original, thanks.
Nareva commented on Video: A New Bravely Default Trailer Shows You...:
Nice trailer. The demo was great, if a bit basic. Looks like there's lots to love about the full game.
Nareva commented on Bravely Default Producer - No Need for More Im...:
Remember the cautionary tale taught us by George Lucas. If at first you succeed, stop changing things because you'll only make it worse.
Nareva commented on Weirdness: Japanese Gamer Clears Ocarina Of Ti...:
This made me laugh. I could imagine doing this with my brothers when I was a kid. It would be funny at first, then the humor would wear off, but stick with it and it becomes even more hilarious. It's certainly an achievement.
Nareva commented on Unepic Confirmed for 16th January on the North...:
I think it looks pretty fun, not sure why everyone's so down on it.
Nareva commented on Prolific Video Game Box Art Illustrator Greg M...:
When I was a kid, I wanted Little Nemo The Dream Master almost solely because of that cover art. Sadly, I don't think I ever actually played it.
Nareva commented on Review: Angry Birds Star Wars (Wii U):
I had a lot of fun eating up time with Angry Birds in waiting rooms and between classes in my grad student years, but haven't played it for quite some time. And this is definitely overpriced.
Nareva commented on Site News: How was 2013 for Nintendo Life?:
Well done folks. You run a quality establishment.
Nareva commented on Game of the Year: Nintendo Life Readers' Award...:
@Noonch Wow, that's 50 days! You certainly got your money's worth. I've been considering it for a while now. I might pick it up in the next few months.
@Noonch I've never played an Animal Crossing game. What's the deal, why would you want more than one 3DS?
Strange that the best first party Wii U games and the best overall Wii U games were the same games, but in a different order. How can I go about my day not knowing definitively whether people like Pikmin 3 or Windwaker HD more? It's a nightmare!
Good list though.
Nareva commented on Game of the Year: Nintendo Life's Staff Awards...:
Nice list. I bought myself a 3DS for Christmas and just picked up Steamworld Dig and Attack of the Friday Monsters (both on sale). I guess I'll have to check out HarmoKnight as well.
Nareva commented on Nintendo Download: 26th December (North America):
@Beau_Skunk If you own a game on Wii VC and transfer it over to the Wii U, you will get a discount if you buy it on Wii U VC. NES games cost $1. SNES, $1.50. I've already done it with the two NES Zelda games and Super Mario World on the SNES. Unfortunately there's no similar deal for the 3DS.
Nareva commented on Video: This Atmospheric Tengami Trailer Makes ...:
It looks great and I love a good puzzle game, but whether I buy will depend on the gameplay.
Nareva commented on Renegade Kid and Nicalis Titles Reduced on eSh...:
Picked up Mutant Mudds and NightSky, considering Cave Story, though I've played it on Mac, possibly VVVVVV.
Nareva commented on Review: NES Remix (Wii U eShop):
@jayclayx Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't online play cost something on PS3 and PS4? So not exactly free services then.
Edit: Upon further inspection, I see Home is free. If the price makes you unhappy, I suggest you skip it.
I'm really enjoying this so far. The stamps, like in SM3DW, are actually a really fun collectible. Making ridiculous Miiverse posts with them is pretty entertaining.
Nareva commented on Bravely Default North American Demo To Include...:
@WYLD-WOO Duly noted.
@JaxonH You talk a big game, a somewhat convincing one. I've been wondering if that would be to my liking. I've never been hugely into strategy games, but it's another genre I've wanted to try. If I do, I'll definitely start with that game. Thanks for the recommendation.
@element187 @Falchion I'm definitely leaning towards SMT IV. It does get rave reviews after all.
@Spoony_Tech Cool. Sounds like I have plenty of good options, which is what I was hoping for.
@imgrowinglegs No, I've never tried one. I was considering IV, since people seem to like it a lot. Thanks for the recommendations!
@Spoony_Tech Cool, I'll check out the demo. Thanks!
I just bought a 3DS XL, partly hoping to find the game that scratches that RPG itch without boring me to tears. I haven't finished a "traditional" RPG, by that I mean the old-style Dragon Warrior and NES/SNES FF, for over ten years. The grinding grinds me down until I just become apathetic and stop playing. I tried with Etrian Odyssey II and Shiren the Wanderer and, later, one of the revamped early FFs on iOS. I still like the idea of RPGs, I just haven't found one that keeps me interested. This meaty demo should give me a good idea if this game will do it.
Nareva commented on NES Remix Confirmed And Available Today on the...:
Definitely buying this today. Looks like a solid dose of retro fun.
Nareva commented on Ender's Game Star Asa Butterfield Cut His Teet...:
@Arcamenel The book really is excellent. I read it about 15 years ago before I knew anything about Card. Buy it used somewhere if it really bothers you. The movie, sadly, is completely missable.
Nareva commented on Target Offering 3DS XL Models For $149.99 Unti...:
I bought the Zelda bundle a week or two ago. Fortunately retailers in the states will always do a price adjustment if the product is within the return period. I have $70 coming my way.
Nareva commented on Mighty No. 9 Studio Comcept Facing Fan Backlas...:
@HugoSmits Dude, you did not just equate a female gendered character to a character with a handicap! You did not!
But you're right, it is Inafune's creative work and he's not going to let some low-level employee dictate how the game will progress. This whole thing is totally blown out of proportion.
@Yorumi I would agree that deleting her tweets was a poor decision. I also think if it's true that she doesn't know much about the series, people might have a legitimate gripe. That said, if it were a man, no one would be screaming 'bloody feminism' because of a female robot sketch and this whole thing would not be happening. If it were a guy, we would probably never hear about it because no one would care.
@edhe God, I hope so.
@Yorumi I'm skeptical about the dishonesty and nepotism and I think they've both been blown out of proportion, and yes, done so because she is a woman or at least because she is not a man.
The claim of dishonesty is based on two tweets. One said she was "never an MM player" and another said something about MegaMan X being her favorite. That's it! Two tweets that seem confusing, but that could be easily clarified. Maybe she played X, but never played the originals? I don't know. I don't care. Calling someone a liar based on those two tweets is absurd and petty. How about, you know, asking her about it?!
And the nepotism, also ridiculous. She possibly got a job there because she has friends who also work there. How many people do you think got a job there because they knew Inafune? Is that also nepotism/favoritism? No, it's called networking, and that's how millions of people get introduced to people who are looking to hire.
And no, I would not defend some guy with sexist views.
@HugoSmits Haha! A Christian robot. That would be something to see.
But you're mis-paraphrasing me. I didn't say using 'feminazi' hints to underlying ignorance, though that may be true, but to an underlying belief that women should not be making particular decisions.
But the Christian robot question is another false equivalence. Religion and gender are not comparable characteristics in this argument. Religion is a personal choice, rooted in society, culture and, often, nationality. Gender is a state of birth. We can choose our religion. We can't choose to be born male or female.
