NintyMan commented on Review: Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Qu...:

This review reads like a 10/10 to me, so the 9/10 score is baffling.

Also, Donkey Kong himself is in the game; he's just not playable. Even though most of us probably already know it well, I think there should hae been an introduction to the story. Kaptain K. Rool, the alter ego of King K. Rool, kidnapped DK to ransom the Kongs into handing over the banana hoard they risked their lives reclaiming last time, so Diddy and Dixie set off to rescue DK. It's not a major omission, but it would've improved this review.

Now about this game; it really is a masterpiece. Unfortunately, even as a huge DK fan, for some reason I never got to play it as a little kid until years later on the GBA, and then a few years after that I finally got to play the original. Everything is brilliantly polished in this game, but I want to give a special mention to the music. Stickerbrush Symphony is a video game music masterpiece that should get all the praise it gets. I also love Forest Interlude and Disco Train.

I look forward to when NOA finally announces the trilogy here.



NintyMan commented on Nintendo Returns to Profit as Wii U Sales Show...:

Nice to some good improvements. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will only make it better. Pokemon will also obviously help 3DS. The amiibos are going to be interesting to watch. Overall, I feel a bit optimistic about Nintendo this late Fall and Winter.



NintyMan commented on Super Smash Bros. 3-Poster Set Now Available f...:

Maybe there could be a second Smash Bros. poster set down the line that has Mega Man's in it? I wouldn't rule it out. It probably wouldn't come for a long time, though, so that's partly why I went ahead and ordered them now while I could.



NintyMan commented on Super Smash Bros. 3-Poster Set Now Available f...:

I ordered them immediately after they just went up. They should look cool. Mega Man's would've been great, but I'm just glad that North America's Club Nintendo is finally getting a new physical reward that's good and is a normal reward.



NintyMan commented on Feature: A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and...:

It was a close one between the NES Zapper in Duck Hunt's trailer and 8-player smash showing the original characters, but I voted for the trailer. That should hopefully be a fun trailer to watch. 8-player Smash is going to be crazy fun!



NintyMan commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Update Incl...:

Yes! I've read that the Yoshi egg glitch is still intact. And I'm also relieved that the possibility of losing replays after updating is not true. This is just from one guy's impressions, but it should still be all right.



NintyMan commented on Review: Donkey Kong Country (Wii U eShop / Sup...:

This is likely my favorite video game ever. It might have even been the first video game I ever played, but my memory is too fuzzy on that to say for sure.

This game is fun, challenging, charming, has fantastic music, has fantastic level design, and good characters from the hero to villain and to the side characters. The only downside to keep it from being perfect are its mostly lackluster boss battles. Thankfully, King K. Rool is an excellent final boss.

I still play this game sometimes on my old SNES today, but I may even try it out on my Wii U someday whenever this comes to NA.



NintyMan commented on Mewtwo Returns to Super Smash Bros., Ridley an...:

While this definitely increases the chances of more DLC characters in the future, the workload and wait for just one character has me thinking that they wouldn't really come as quickly as people would like or expect. Games like Yoshi's Woolly World and Mario Party 10 might release by the time Mewtwo arrives!



NintyMan commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Takes Sharing Expe...:

There are so many possibilities with this; it's simply incredible. The work and effort Sakurai and his team have put into this game is stunning. There is no telling how much content is going to be shared when this gets implemented!



NintyMan commented on You Can Use The Wii U GamePad For Voice Chat, ...:

I'm not using voice chat, but I am very excited for Stage Builder and how much better it is this time! It might have been a given considering the sheer amount of content in this game, but I was really hoping for more improvements in the system. I used Brawl's a lot despite its limitations, but now it's just going to increase dramatically now! And eventually they can be shared! Sakurai and his team have nailed it this time!



NintyMan commented on 8 Player Smash Mode Confirmed For Wii U Super ...:

Offline makes sense as delicate as online Smash Bros. is anyway. That, and this would be the perfect way to entertain local parties. I'm happy to see it come about, and I love how the announcer set up the announcement by gradually working his way up to it!



NintyMan commented on Mewtwo Returns to Super Smash Bros., Ridley an...:

Mewtwo is the shocker of this video hands-down. How could any person see this coming?

I was an early Mewtwo supporter, but as Lucario and Greninja were confirmed, it declined dramatically. Now that's he's in, it just feels surreal now. I'm sure Miiverse is going crazy over this!



NintyMan commented on Feature: Five 'New Things' We Want in Super Sm...:

I voted for DLC. Characters, stages, more assist trophies and Pokemon, modes; it would all be good. The game will be big enough as it is, but it doesn't hurt to give people the option to extend the game's replayability even more. I don't care much about prices as long as the content offered was sufficient, and it would all be completely optional anyway.

Online tournaments and communities would be good too. More amiibos are guaranteed. It's just a matter of how frequently new ones will release.

I would add a Stage Builder as well, but NL seems to treat it as if it's confirmed by Amazon. While Amazon is a bit more credible source than other websites, I would still play it a little safe and treat it like a likely leak for now.

Another thing I would want to see is an Adventure Mode with levels like Smash Run and with boss battles. Basically, it would be like Melee's, only much longer and better.



NintyMan commented on Review: Shantae And The Pirate's Curse (3DS eS...:

Are the breasts in this game really as bad as Zelda's Great Fairy and Cia, for example?

This is the first time I've read people criticize Shantae as "sexualised" too. It is to an extent, but apparently it's not bad enough to hurt it much, as this game still got an excellent review.



NintyMan commented on Review: Shantae And The Pirate's Curse (3DS eS...:

I’ll want to get this for my 3DS eventually. I still feel like I should play the first game and more of the second one first. That, and there’s other things I want to spend eShop money on like the Mario Kart 8 DLC before the hefty price on this. But it sounds like another good Shantae game, so that’s nice to know.



NintyMan commented on Yoshi Circuit From Double Dash!! Makes A Comeb...:

This is the first track to return that already returned once before. GCN Yoshi Circuit is okay, but I would've chosen Mushroom City, Bowser's Castle, or even brought back Baby Park, but it's not a bad choice. I can't play the video right now for some reason.



NintyMan commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Ability to Charm You...:

Kids have always been important for Nintendo since the beginning, and that’s not changing. Kids today are totally different than when I was a little one, though. From what impressions I see of kids today, they’re much more interested in mature stuff than they used to be and like to style themselves as little techies with their iphones and ipads. Sometimes it does seem like an unnerving challenge for Nintendo to win them over, but of all the gaming companies today, Nintendo is easily the most family-friendly and also the one company with the most valuable character IP that make people want to buy game after game. Games like Smash Bros. get both the young and old together (not the really old, but you should get my point).

Enduring game series like Mario stay with gamers for years, as I think we can all relate here with playing a game series since childhood.



NintyMan commented on Link amiibo Compatibility Confirmed for Hyrule...:

It seems a little odd that this is just Link for now, but, again, this was probably a quick choice probably for experimenting with amiibo. I don't see why Zelda, Shiek, and Ganondorf amiibos wouldn't eventually be supported as well



NintyMan commented on Link amiibo Compatibility Confirmed for Hyrule...:

This must be a last minute change for Koei Tecmo. Hopefully it'll be used for something interested. I want Nintendo to start opening up on amiibo and its future like they will be with Smash Bros. Wii U. An amiibo Direct would be very helpful.



NintyMan commented on Rumour: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Dat...:

I believe Super Smash Bros. will get DLC in some form eventually. Text had been found in the ROM dump that says "See stages you have downloaded." This was among the text for random stage selection, I think.

I would be all for DLC characters, but I would hope the 3DS version could handle them because it uses so much data as it is.



NintyMan commented on New Music and Voice Samples Discovered in the ...:

Surprising that it took this long to dig into a video game, though I have no experience doing that, so I wouldn't know.

The music doesn't sound familiar. It's interesting that there was originally going to be actual voice clips.



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.
