NintyMan commented on Waka-Waka-Well I Never, Pac-Man Turns 35 Today:

Pac-Man has easily been my most played classic arcade game over the years, as Donkey Kong was rare where I lived when I was younger and could only play that on DK64. I actually played Ms. Pac-Man on SNES more. Even though I didn't get very far and the ghosts would always win in the end, Pac-Man is a fun, little game that makes you want to play it again and again. I have good memories playing Pac-Man Collection on GBA as well as Pac-Man World 1 and 2. I was thrilled to see him make it in Smash.

Here's to Miyamoto's favorite character over his own mascot!



NintyMan commented on Art Academy: Atelier Sketched In For 26th June...:

This is about time as I've been expecting the full version for a long time. I still think it's silly that Sketchpad doesn't even have lessons at all, even with the icon for them being there. I wanted to get better at it as I never played Art Academy before, so I guess I'll just have to play the full version later this year.



NintyMan commented on Review: New Super Mario Bros. (Wii U eShop / DS):

Good review. New Super Mario Bros. is a good game; and great in its time. It's hard to imagine going for so long without a 2D Mario in this day and age, but that just shows how the times have changed.

What helps set this apart from the other NSMB games is that it contains unique boss battles. Bowser Jr. is also arguably the main villain of this game as he's the one who kidnaps Princess Peach and led the Koopa army while his dad transformed into Dry Bowser (which is a true highlight!), so the game's got some things still going for it. However, I feel it gets somewhat redundant when Junior's the only mid-boss in the game and you fight him a dozen times.

Those minigames were really fun, even when they were just carried over from Super Mario 64 DS.



NintyMan commented on Reaction: Nintendo Dropped the Ball, Not the M...:

People were expecting way too much; especially the ones thinking Nintendo would announce a new Mario game there. Super Mario Bros. 4? Really? There's already a Super Mario Bros. 4; it's called Super Mario World.

Thinking this could match or even exceed the 1990 event is rather unrealistic. It'll be a fun competition, but not something totally groundbreaking for Nintendo.

I agree that they could have come up with better games for the qualifiers, but the actual championship is still implied to have different games.



NintyMan commented on Nintendo Announces Best Buy Locations and Deta...:

I expected so few locations. I'm surprised that they went with retro games, though. The Championship Mode in Ultimate NES Remix seems somewhat underwhelming, but the actual championship will surely have something better.



NintyMan commented on Rumour: Customisable Mii Fighter amiibo Could ...:

I think that thing is fake, but the concept is true. Nintendo has already thought about making a customizable Mii amiibo, and they even made a prototype amiibo of Miyamoto's Mii! This has been known since last year.

It could be very cool if done right.



NintyMan commented on Nintendo President Satoru Iwata Is Skipping E3...:

Iwata's not as spry as he used to be. He could be more tired now due to recovering from last year, and he could be busier due to all the internal managing Nintendo's doing and working with DeNA. At least he'll show up in the Digital Event, as always, but it is a shame that he has to miss out on the fun again.



NintyMan commented on Yooka-Laylee’s Game Worlds Will Be Contained...:

I like this concept. Unlike the Banjo-Kazooie games or Donkey Kong 64 where you have to enter a certain entrance to enter a world, here it just sounds like all the worlds are interconnected. So it sounds like there won't be much of a hub world if at all.

Given the experience of these guys, I wouldn't worry about whether they can really deliver.



NintyMan commented on Review: Paper Mario (Wii U eShop / Nintendo 64):

The first Paper Mario is still my favorite Mario RPG. The characters, witty dialogue, humor, battles, and interesting environments all come together to make a charming game.

Hopefully a new Paper Mario is announced this E3 at some point soon!



NintyMan commented on Reaction: Nintendo's E3 Plans are a Perfect Bl...:

As the old saying goes, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." Nintendo just has to make sure they deliver the goods.

I am curious how the Mario Maker demo is going to work, though. Will the levels already be prebuilt or will players get to quickly make a level and then play it? The latter might take a while.



NintyMan commented on Video: Here's Proof That Yoshi Made Out of Yar...:

Their cuteness is just about what I expected! This should seriously be the cutest game on Wii U.

The pattern Yoshis look pretty wild. Shy Guy Yoshi with the mask on the nose? I hope there's more interesting ones like that, as some of them look like colorful jumbles otherwise. But what I want to know is if amiibo will unlock exclusive patterns or if they just unlock some of the in-game patterns quicker.

NOA, if you're reading this, please try to bump this game's release date a month or so, okay?



NintyMan commented on New Super Mario Bros. Receives ESRB Rating For...:

I think this one may still hold up well. It's just a simple, fun 2D Mario platformer, which at the time was fantastic as there hadn't been a new 2D Mario in many years! Twists like Dry Bowser and unique bosses were cool. I feel Bowser Jr. was too frequent of a boss, but it was nice to see his profile increase. Then there's all those minigames that mostly carried over from Super Mario 64 DS!



NintyMan commented on Nintendo Has Unannounced Wii U Titles Which Wi...:

Metroid, Animal Crossing, and Paper Mario are all good possibilities for this E3.

I would guess Retro Studios has returned to Metroid, but Next Level Games could make just about anything. It would be cool if they made a new Mario Strikers.



NintyMan commented on Poll: Did The Splatoon Global Testfire Hit Its...:

I got the testfire and had a lot of fun! The online for me was great; only an occasional disconnection before I could join the lobby and there was only one match was disconnected during it. There was absolutely no lag. There should have been another weekend for it, though. It seems like a good, little while until the game releases and I don't know if people's memories would be fresh.

It definitely sold me on the game I'll be getting it Day One, hopefully!



NintyMan commented on Nintendo's E3 Focus to Reportedly be on Wii U ...:

This E3 still seems wide open for Nintendo as far as game possibilities. I hope 3DS gets more games as the lineup does look very thin and I got a New Nintendo 3DS XL not too long ago. But for Wii U, I expect there to be at least one other major game to feature along with Star Fox for this Fall and Christmas season.

NX will definitely be at E3 2016, as Iwata already mentioned from the beginning. I guess the smart device game will have to be in a Nintendo Direct later this summer.



NintyMan commented on Producer Of The Mario Kart Series Appointed As...:

Wow, this doesn't mean Nintendo's stepping away from full games, guys. These mobile games are just going to be a taste for people to get their appetites whetted for a full game on a Nintendo console, and Konno doesn't change that. He's just there to make sure these games won't be junk.



NintyMan commented on Nintendo Has Shipped 10.5 Million amiibo World...:

I think retailers should step it up too. Some of them, especially Target in my experience. I was able to get one, but they really messed up with the Rosalina & Luma amiibo. Stores ought to get better with this kind of thing too.



NintyMan commented on Reaction: The Splatoon Global Testfire Demo Is...:

I feel the demo should have been given much more time to allow players to play. Only three hours seems awfully short in the long-term, and especially when those hours are at inopportune times for many people.

But I won't fret; it's still great that they gave us a demo at all.



NintyMan commented on Yooka-Laylee Hit The $1 Million Point Faster T...:

That's seriously impressive. People are obviously wanting a Banjo-Kazooie-style game very, very much. And I can understand why. There just haven't been games before or since that have had the charm that those two Banjo-Kazooie games have. Some have tried, but they still feel special. It might as well take the same guys who made them to make a similar game again!



NintyMan commented on Nintendo Outlines 2015 Software Plans, Star Fo...:

The seemingly small preview for 3DS seems disappointing considering I got a New Nintendo 3DS XL earlier this year.

I'm surprised Project Guard is still it's own game. I thought they were open to adding it to Star Fox since the theme is very similar, and even with the Star Fox logo being on the cameras! I guess they must have improved upon it to stand on its own.



NintyMan commented on Nintendo Suggests That Additional DLC for Mari...:

It may refer to the second DLC pack, but I hope not. There should be at least two more packs for Mario Kart 8. Come on Kirby and Pit! Diddy Kong, Bowser Jr., and Kamek too, please.

More Smash DLC is a given considering Lucas, the Fight Ballot character and more costumes.



NintyMan commented on Nintendo and Universal Studios Announce Theme ...:

Wow, a real Nintendo Land can actually happen, to an extent! There's all kinds of rides they could think of if they were serious. A Mario Kart track, Rainbow Roller Coaster, Kid Icarus indoor dark ride, Donkey Kong Jungle Rapids, Star Fox arwings, the classic Octopus ride being a Game & Watch theme, and so much more.

If it's actually good, I'll have to plan a trip there someday.



NintyMan commented on Feature: Here Are Our Fondest Kirby Memories:

My first game was Kirby 64, but I hadn't played any Kirby games for years for some reason. Maybe other games just took too much of my attention for me to notice. But in 2008, I got Kirby Super Star Ultra and got hooked on the Kirby series! Beating the True Arena without any damage is one of my most satisfying game accomplishments, something I've done for Kirby's Dream Land 3 and Kirby 64 in their boss rushes. Now I've played every Kirby game released since then and there's only a handful of games overall I have yet to play.

Kirby is definitely a game that you have to appreciate more for atmosphere like the graphics and music than the actual challenging part. Though some games like Kirby's Dream Land 3 and Kirby 64 brought some challenge to finding necessary items to truly the beat the game and I remember some tough challenges even in Kirby's Epic Yarn, the pretty easy difficulty is meant to give everyone a shot, like what Sakurai was going for.

Personally, I want to see a 3D Kirby game next!



NintyMan commented on Yooka-Laylee Character Designer Spills on Crea...:

While they may be similar to Banjo and Kazooie in respects, Yooka and Laylee will be very different. Rolling across the jungle is so much faster than Kazooie's running, for example. And Yooka's color-changing abilities should be interesting.



NintyMan commented on Feature: A Fit-To-Burst History Of Kirby Games:

For some reason, I can't pick an all-time favorite Kirby game. But I can say what some of my favorites are at least: Kirby Super Star Ultra, Kirby 64, Kirby's Return to Dream Land, and Kirby: Triple Deluxe.

Kirby 64 was my first Kirby game, but I didn't play the series again until Super Star Ultra in 2008, which I had a blast playing. Clearing the True Arena without getting any damage is one my most satisfying game accomplishments ever. That's a feat only on Kirby's Dream Land 3 and Kirby 64 that I did. I enjoy almost every Kirby game.
