NintyMan commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Live Nintendo Dire...:

Just don't expect any new characters, guys. The roster is going to be the same on both versions, just as Sakurai has stated a few times before. Besides, it would be a slap in the face for those who can only afford one version.



NintyMan commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Live Nintendo Dire...:

6 PM is good timing for me. I think this is very close if not the same timing as the Nintendo Direct back in February.

Even if some of those 50 things aren't that new; I expect most of them will be, so whatever. 50 can be considered a large number, and in this context I think it is. There might be some small new things and some big ones that come from out of the blue. Regardless, this will give the Wii U version some much-needed attention and hype!



NintyMan commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U to Feature Grab th...:

I think that is Temple. The ground and the ruins in the background look unmistakable. It's a fan favorite, so I'm not surprised it's coming back once again.

The one with Kirby also looks interesting. I can't make out if it's Wuhu Island or a new stage.



NintyMan commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Live Nintendo Dire...:

Good deal! Time to get the Smash Bros. Wii U hype train to leave the station!

It’s odd that this isn’t called a Nintendo Direct or even a Smash Direct, but just a “live stream.” Will it be by NOA or Sakurai and team? Regardless, 50 new things sound like a lot of content! I hope a stage builder is one of them!



NintyMan commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Amazon Listing Say...:

I think this is a genuine leak. Amazon is a more credible source than Smashboards or 4Chan.

I hope it's true. A stage builder exclusively for the Wii U version makes sense. The board game mode sounds interesting. I think this ultimately should be all part of an upcoming Smash Bros. Direct, so we can see the official reveal there. Nintendo has a strange way of putting things off until someone reveals something and then they have to reveal something.

Hopefully the stage builder will be bigger and better this time!



NintyMan commented on Review: Donkey Kong Land (3DS eShop / Game Boy):

Since three years ago, I had gotten this game again to play after returning it the first time, and I had a much easier time with it. The physics, while definitely tricky, didn't bother me the more I played. The music is fantastic, but that's to be expected when David Wise is allowed to compose 8-bit music.

Even though I still have the cart, I would gladly buy this game again for my 3DS. I've been waiting for it to come to 3DS VC since the 3DS' launch.



NintyMan commented on The Photo Studio in Super Smash Bros. for Wii ...:

I'm glad this returns from Brawl. I missed taking photos of trophies in the 3DS version. There's going to be plenty of amusing possibilities with this. And since the Wii U version will actually support Miiverse unlike the 3DS version, it should be rather interesting seeing other people's screenshots of their trophy setups.

@Pahvi: That's a great idea!



NintyMan commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Announcement Revea...:

I'd say the Smash Bros. Wii U hype train will be leaving its station soon, as this surely means a new Smash Bros. Direct is coming. And they do need to have one, because November is quickly approaching. I'm not too surprised that the game still isn't done yet, but with the game just a little over a month away from release in NA, the game better be shipped out and processed logically and fully.

I look forward to soon seeing the many tiring complaints and fears about the Wii U version's supposed emptiness evaporate with one stunning video broadcast.



NintyMan commented on Junichi Masuda Talks Pokémon Snap and Listeni...:

Would it really be that hard to think of new ideas for Pokemon Snap? A lot has changed since the N64 days and I'm sure it wouldn't difficult adding new features and still be fresh.

I wouldn't mind a new Pokemon Stadium/Colosseum either.



NintyMan commented on Eiji Aonuma Wants Mario Kart 8's DLC Master Cy...:

Aonuma didn’t specifically say he wants to put it in Zelda games he works on, but he works on predominately Zelda games, so it’s fine to assume that anyway. As long as it fits, I wouldn't mind it.

I’m happy it’s a bike that has inward drifting. It looks that way in the artwork and I've recently gotten good with inward drifting after struggling at first.



NintyMan commented on New Nintendo 3DS LL Outsells Standard Model By...:

Since this was first revealed, I had always been leaning toward the new 3DS XL since I've never owned a regular 3DS XL and had wanted bigger screens for a long time, but just didn't have the opportunity. Those custom plates on the smaller new 3DS are definitely tempting, but in the end I think I'll probably get the bigger version for obvious reasons.

Consider how many kinds of 3DS XLs have been released in Japan and how many have sold over there in general. I imagine most Nintendo gamers there own a 3DS XL, and going by experience with my DSi XL, it's hard going back to a smaller screen.

They really should have made those plates for the new XL too.



NintyMan commented on Super Smash Bros. Fans Teased Further by New M...:

The Crazy Hand mode is clearly harder because there's a giant bag of gold in that icon unlike the Master Hand one, which implies that the rewards are higher for clearing that mode.

I think it's either two different difficulties for a longer Classic Mode or an Adventure Mode. That's just speculation, of course, so I guess we'll see if there's a new Smash Direct (which there should be) or if a later Pic of the Day this week reveals them.



NintyMan commented on Rare Donkey Kong Delights to Grace the Wii U a...:

Nintendo owns everything DK. Characters like Diddy Kong, the Kremlings, King K. Rool, Cranky Kong, and Dixie Kong were all created by Rare, but Nintendo still owns them. I don't know why people claimed Nintendo lost the rights to that character IP when Diddy had been in Mario games immediately following Rare's departure, and then there were the DKC GBA ports around the same time.

Nintendo published Donkey Kong 64 too, but that case is a bit different. That game has a Rare game named Jetpac built within it, and it was extremely important to beating the game by clearing it and getting the coin needed to fight K. Rool. While not impossible, Nintedo would have a hard time altering the game by removing Jetpac completely, and that would be unprecedented for just a VC game.

My guess is as good as any of you all's about why Nintendo took down the DKC trilogy on the Wii VC, but the point remains that Nintendo had never lost the rights to them.

With these releasing in Europe (and hopefully North America soon), it's good that they're going to celebrate Donkey Kong Country's 20th anniversary late than never.



NintyMan commented on Gallery: Enjoy a Cuteness Overload in These Ca...:

This game just seems very refreshing. Captain Toad has a starring role, Toadette has a prominent, playable role in a game that's not a spin-off, the game has a villain who is not Bowser, and the visuals look even better than 3D World's! I also like the attention to the characters' emotions. It adds more charm and personality to the game. This game will be well-worth only $40!



NintyMan commented on Hardware Review: The New Nintendo 3DS Is The B...:

Since I've never played an XL and have wanted to play on bigger screens for a long time, I thought about the new XL, but I may still consider the smaller one since it's still bigger than my original model and those designs are cool. But I'm also still hoping for that new Smash Bros. XL to come westward too even if it's unlikely. Decisions, decisions!



NintyMan commented on Rare Donkey Kong Delights to Grace the Wii U a...:

I've been waiting to play Donkey Kong Land on my 3DS since its launch in 2011. As long as it releases everywhere, this would be a fantastic opportunity for anyone to play all the games for the first time if they could never get the cartridges. I had to get Donkey Kong Land I and II in their carts to play on my GBA SP, but hopefully soon I can just play them on my 3DS!

This is a good day for DK fans.



NintyMan commented on Rare Donkey Kong Delights to Grace the Wii U a...:

I hope these come over to North America eventually...

About time the West got the Donkey Kong Land trilogy since Japan has had it for months. But what's just as pleasing is that the Donkey Kong Country trilogy is actually coming for the Wii U VC!

Honestly, I think I may try to get all of these, despite owning almost all of them on past consoles already. Playing Donkey Kong Country on the GamePad just sounds appealing.



NintyMan commented on Preview: Going Retro On The Go With Ultimate N...:

While I can see the portable appeal of this, I already have NES Remix 2 and I would rather get the Wii U bundle than this. It has more games, challenges, and Speed Mario Bros. doesn't sound as interesting as Super Luigi Bros. Still, this would be fine for those who either don't have a Wii U or don't have the Wii U NES Remix games and don't feel like getting it for a home console.



NintyMan commented on Unused Announcer Audio in Super Smash Bros. Re...:

I can easily see some of these features make it into the Wii U version, such as boss battles and Special Smash. I really enjoyed Special Smash in Brawl and was a little disappointed it's not in the 3DS game. 8-player Smash would make more sense on a home console version.

Actually, it's strange they took out "grab the coins" in the 3DS version since that had been a common feature in Melee and Brawl.



NintyMan commented on Captain Toad's Joined by Toadette in Treasure ...:

This game just keeps looking better and better. I never would have thought Toadette would join the adventure, but now it makes a lot of sense since she's Toad's sweetheart. I'm also intrigued by that giant turban-wearing raven since she appears to be the villain, which would be cool because crows and ravens are known as kleptomaniacs stealing shiny objects like jewelry, so that would fit very well with the treasure theme.



NintyMan commented on Shantae and the Pirate's Curse Finally Shakes ...:

Good; finally. I remember reading about this game in a Nintendo Power article, so that just shows you how long this has taken! Hopefully it will be well-worth the wait.

I’ve decided to get the 3DS version after all. The Wii U version was very tempting, but Shovel Knight on 3DS convinced me to get this for eye-popping 3D platforming and portability.



NintyMan commented on Nintendo Confirms GameCube Controller Adapter ...:

This just dramatically opened up opportunities for this adapter. So this is good for Wii games that support GCN controllers as well as SNES VC games? Whoa. This could only be better if there was GCN and N64 VC on the way.

What if Mario Kart 8 could be played with a GCN controller? Super Mario 3D World? DKC: Tropical Freeze? Wind Waker HD?



NintyMan commented on Gallery: A Closer Look at the Six New amiibo F...:

Since there's so many characters in the roster, I'm not surprised at all that new amiibos will release fairly quickly.

@cmk8: Since Wario's a secret character, he'll be released somewhat late. But it shouldn't take too long, hopefully!

I look forward to seeing Duck Hunt!



NintyMan commented on Gallery: A Closer Look at the Six New amiibo F...:

Pit looks great and I'll be getting him along with Diddy Kong and Little Mac, but I can't deny one little bit that Captain Falcon looks completely impressive, so I might get him as well.

If those colored support pillars are truly gone, then it's going to be tough not getting a bunch of these at least.



NintyMan commented on Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Begins North Am...:

I'm looking forward to Captain Toad! The game will more than likely be overshadowed by Smash Bros. because that's Smash Bros., but this game will still be a nice, niche title and I believe it will be worth being a $40 retail game. It's too bad that it doesn't support amiibo right away, though.



NintyMan commented on Nintendo Announces amiibo Release Dates and Ne...:

I notice that the figures being shown don't seem to have those colored support pillars that popped up in a recent convention. I wish they didn't have to have them.

I would get Pit, Diddy Kong, Little Mac, and maybe Luigi and Captain Falcon out of that second wave. Those combined with Donkey Kong and Villager from before just make my wallet cringe. If not for the colored support pillars, I would be feeling like getting most or all of them.



NintyMan commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Release Dates Conf...:

It's smart of Nintendo as a company to try to maximize sales the week before Black Friday. We North Americans also get an early treat this time. It's too bad for Europeans and Japanese but remember that they have had early treats before too, so Nintendo likes to share like that. I'm also happy about Captain Toad releasing on December 5th in NA. I was concerned that Smash Bros. would overshadow it, but the game could hold its own as a nice, niche title.



NintyMan commented on 3DS System Update 9.0.0-20 Is Now Live with Ho...:

Downloaded this night; I think they will be a hit. Even with just simple colors, my Home menu looks livelier than before. Later I'll check out the shop to find out how much character themes cost, which I hope isn't much.



NintyMan commented on Masahiro Sakurai Shows Off amiibo Interface in...:

These amiibo figures will hopefully be fun to use and I plan to at least get those of my favorite characters, but I'm not liking the final build of them. Has anyone seen them? Characters that are suspended in the air now have weird-looking colored "support pillars" to hold them up, and they simply aren't like the better-looking clear poles from prototypes. Some of them are brightly colored, which makes them stand out even more. It just doesn't fit.

I'm still getting some of them, but it may affect whether I get most or all of them.
