NibelsnarfNoob commented on Fire Emblem Fates Releases In North America On...:

Already ordered my Special Edition. All 3 on one cartridge is worth $87 (what it came up to with tax) for me. From all the content we have seen so far its worth the price for me at least. FE is by far my favorite series so I doubt I'll be dissatisfied.



NibelsnarfNoob commented on Updated 'Roadmap' Infographic Shows Nintendo's...:

I'll probably get Yoshi's Wolly World, Xenoblade Chronicles X, and Yokai Watch. Devil Third was a must before, but with all the drama I'm waiting for gameplay and full reviews. edit: didn't realize Fatal Frame was eshop only, now I can't get it...

I want the Zero Suit Samus and Blue Yarn Yoshi amiibos, so hopefully amazon does the purchase window they did for the last wave.



NibelsnarfNoob commented on Nintendo's E3 'Roadmap' Infographic Shows Off ...:

2015 is only Yoshi Woolly World and Xenoblade X. Devil's Third should be out in the US fall 2015 since everywhere else will have it. Fatal Frame would be nice but I'd bet on 2016 (Edit: Just saw the trailer saying its Fall 2015!). 3 Wii U games and anything 3DS would have to be from Atlus.

2016 I have SMTxFE, FE Fates, Metroid Federation Force, and Mario & Luigi Paper Jam.



NibelsnarfNoob commented on Reaction: There is a Positive Angle to Nintend...:

The issue didn't change my mind or worry me, the free demo was always going to have way more traffic then the launch on Friday (especially after all the positive press the first test fires had, way more people were going to try and play).

I've been sold on Splatoon since last year's E3 and that extra hour of play only increased my excitement.



NibelsnarfNoob commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

If I wasn't going to get a game (regardless of score) I just go see the rating. If it is a game I'm on the fence about I check the rating (to see if learning more about the game is worth the time) and if it's positive I'll read the whole review and make a decision. Though sometimes I ignore reviews altogether since some games I enjoy won't get positive scores anyway ie. most Warriors games.

Very rarely do I buy games that I dislike because I usually follow coverage of the game from announcement until launch. So i generally know if I'm going to like the game or not. I've only bought maybe 4 games in the last 5+ years that I wasn't sure I'd enjoy. Dillon's rolling western which despite positive scores I didn't like at all, Izuma Eleven which dissapointed, Pokemon Battle Trozei was ok, and Conception II which I loved.



NibelsnarfNoob commented on Impressions: Nintendo Made The Right Call With...:

@brandonbwii I think the weakspots had a lot of angle limits and some of the guns had lower accuracy, with the Crossbow Lion uses I hit weakpoints every time I aimed for one.
@steamtrain I agree, enemies also had the same weapon weakness as your characters (grenade users have no overwatch, Hounds with machine gun like fire have low accuracy with angled terrain and larger distances).
Enemy turn speed definitely could be better but it didn't bother me as much since the pacing is slow anyway.



NibelsnarfNoob commented on Impressions: Nintendo Made The Right Call With...:

I'm a huge strategy game fan (and FE fan) and I thought it was great. I loved how Line of sight is used. Learning how to position yourself before you end your turn so you can cover blind spots with overwatch attacks, using more mobile characters (Lion) to gain a bird's eye view of the map and see where enemies are moving etc. With perma-death not being a factor knowing your enemies movement range really isn't as important, knowing where they are is. Ambushes and spawn points are the main things that will kill you.

I was mostly worried about the gun camera controls but my worries were put to rest. The ABXY controls worked great for me and never really had a problem with accuracy (other than learning how each gun fires). I was definitely tempering my expectations with this until I could play it, and It was much much better than I expected. I definitely think this has a shot to be just as good if not better than FE: Awakening.



NibelsnarfNoob commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2015:

Monster Hunter 4U is already pre-ordered. Code Name: STEAM and Etrian Mystery Dungeon in March are the others I'm looking forward too. Sucks they come out within 3 days of each other, and I know I won't have time to play both (especially since Monster Hunter is either the same month or a month before).



NibelsnarfNoob commented on Discontinued amiibo Figures Could Be Released ...:

Good to hear, as long as the cards are always available I can live with the limited releases for the figures. More for less is cool with me.

Only ones I wanted are Ike (probably never gonna happen since I can't pre-order it on amazon) and Zero Suit Samus.



NibelsnarfNoob commented on Rumour: Has Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem B...:

I can't say i'll be sad or disappointed if this is true, since we still haven't seen anything gameplay wise about this game. I love Atlus, but i've never played a SMT game, so I don't really know how that would go with Fire Emblem.

Would we just get FE characters in a SMT style game?



NibelsnarfNoob commented on Single Player Campaign for Splatoon Detailed, ...:

YES! I really wanted to see more about Splatoon's single player campaign since it was announced. I really wanted a full single player mode for this, I hate shoot's without solo modes.

It looks even better than at E3 and I can't wait to see more of the customization options for characters. Splatoon is my top WiiU game for next year now (at least until SMT X Fire Emblem gets a release date).



NibelsnarfNoob commented on Feature: What We Want to See in the November N...:

Code Name: S.T.E.A.M and Monster Hunter 4U are my top 3DS games for next year, so I'd love some more info about release dates and how they are effected by the New 3DS. If the controls for Code Name: Steam move the gun movement to the c-stick, that pretty much sells me on a New 3DS.

And any Fire Emblem news is welcome. I really need to see how SMT x FE plays, is it SMT with Fire Emblem characters or FE with SMT characters. Hopefully it's an interesting combo of the two styles of gameplay.
