NintyMan commented on Rumour: More Super Smash Bros. Code Digging Po...:

Considering Ryu's and Roy's music files truly exist as you can listen to them on sites like The Cutting Room Floor, for example, and that they never showed up in the game before the update and Lucas' file showed up when they did, then this isn't something to easily dismiss.

If there really are seven DLC stages planned, I hope for more 64 stages and Melee stages like Brinstar Depths and Fourside, but there would be a few new ones as well. It would put a hurting on my wallet as I would likely get all of them, but it would be Smash Bros. DLC done right. I could definitely see something like this being announced at E3.

The five characters would be Lucas, Ryu, Roy, maybe Wolf, and the winner of the Smash Fighter Ballot. However, who's to say that future updates might not add more spaces? This is just something to watch for now.



NintyMan commented on Playtonic's Mark Stevenson Teases Wii U Fans O...:

Project Ukulele will release even if the Kickstarter falls short. That's just to add more features, but they already have the funds they need to make the game.

I wouldn't mind if it came to 3DS. Regardless, it should at least come to a Nintendo console like Wii U!



NintyMan commented on Talking Point: Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Br...:

I could see Mario Kart 8 get two more cups, but after that it might risk undermining "Mario Kart 9" on NX. Smash Bros., however, could still be added on to for years since a new game would be even later into the future than Mario Kart.



NintyMan commented on Review: Yoshi Touch & Go (Wii U eShop / DS):

I played it back when DS was new, but it didn't make a big impression on me. It's just a glorified tech demo. But Nintendo was definitely on to something as now these kinds of games are all over the place thanks to smartphones.



NintyMan commented on Review: Yoshi's Island DS (Wii U eShop / DS):

I played this game before. It looks appealing at first, but in the end, I didn't like it. The baby-swapping got too complex and it stopped levels right in the middle of them too much. It also got ridiculously difficult toward the end of the game and at the time I just didn't have the stomach to beat it.

At least it's still better than Yoshi's New Island.



NintyMan commented on Poll: Would You Like Mario Kart 8 and Super Sm...:

There's not going to be another Super Smash Bros. for a very long time unlike Mario Kart.

Mario Kart 8 could stand to have two more cups, with one this fall and one next spring. Anymore than that and it might risk undermining "Mario Kart 9" on NX, so that would be when Nintendo would have to switch over to that project.

But with Smash Bros., there wouldn't be a new installment for that on NX for even longer, so Nintendo would be smart just to prolong Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS with more content that keeps players interested and improves the overall experience.



NintyMan commented on Poll: Would You Like Mario Kart 8 and Super Sm...:

I definitely approve of more Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros. DLC. So long as they don’t hurt the next installment in their series, I’m fine with Nintendo providing more good, optional content.

The Mario Kart 8 DLC has been handled brilliantly. However, I still feel the Smash Bros. approach could be a lot better. The Mii costumes are fine if you’re really interested in one or two, but they couldn’t have chosen a less interesting avenue for DLC. It’s worse when certain costumes are exclusive to one kind of fighter, like the cat suit being exclusive to Mii Brawlers, for example. Costumes like the Mega Man X and Link ones make sense that way, but not when it’s just a generic cat suit.

However, if there were to be DLC stages, then we would be talking! They would have me hooked. I’d get every single one of them regardless of what they were.



NintyMan commented on Diddy Kong Nerfed In Latest Super Smash Bros. ...:

Diddy's infamous kick was actually really helpful in Multi-Man Smash and Classic Mode at a hard level, but I would agree that he was a bit powerful for a little monkey.

Kirby's one of my mains, so at least he got an upgrade. He was already kind of strong already.



NintyMan commented on Poll: What Are You Most Excited About in the M...:

New tracks always win out for me, but that doesn't mean 200cc won't be cool.

My favorite track so far is a very tough choice, GBA Ribbon Road was my most requested track from Super Circuit. Actually playing the tracks will really determine things.

I'm actually happy with all the characters, but I chose Dry Bowser just for familiarity and the fact that he was referenced in the main game anyway at Bone Dry Desert, so he should have come back.

The P-Wing looks like a cool and slick new kart.

More Mario Kart 8 DLC would be just fine for me, especially if it was for real battle arenas. However, eventually Nintendo's going to have to get started on the next Mario Kart for NX.



NintyMan commented on Weirdness: Street Fighter's Ryu is Now Being R...:

I don't know about this. It's more than likely fake. What about the Smash Fighter Ballot? Unless this was planned DLC already like Lucas, but still, this doesn't rub me the right way.

Ryu and Roy might have just been scrapped characters too. Not everything within those files means that they will be DLC. They usually were meant to be in the game originally, but were never used.

It was true, I'd be okay with it, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.



NintyMan commented on Mario Maker Japanese Website Points to Inclusi...:

Miyamoto's dream of Yoshi in Super Mario Bros. can come true! Yoshi (or some riding creature) was going to be from the beginning in Super Mario Bros., but they couldn't do it for some reason.

Now I just want to see boss battles. I know there's Bowser, but I'm thinking more about the Koopalings, Boom Boom, and Reznor.



NintyMan commented on Review: Donkey Kong 64 (Wii U eShop / Nintendo...:

I really don’t care so much about the collecting. Yes, it can be a chore sometimes, but I have had too many fun memories with this game that I simply want to play it and relive it again! At least you get a lot out of the game for its much, much smaller eShop price compared to its original price.

Donkey Kong 64 is still a great game with a huge adventure and lots to see and do. You also get to play the original Donkey Kong arcade game and Jetpac, making the game an even greater deal. And when you’ve persevered through the game enough, you get to play the boss battles, minigames, and the arcade games in a separate mode outside the main game, making it more streamlined. Unlockable cheats also make the game go better.

I’m just happy that Nintendo blew away my expectations and released this game for VC. I never thought it would make it, but Nintendo somehow got through the inevitable licensing issue with Jetpac. Now I hope a new generation gets to enjoy this big experience!



NintyMan commented on Poll: Is Splatoon a Blockbuster That'll Help R...:

I’m pretty excited for Splatoon. It’s a brand-new IP from Nintendo that looks refreshing and yet still looks like something from Nintendo. I think the online will really shine and will give the game more of a lasting appeal, though with me being more of a single-player person, I’m eager to see the single-player campaign as well. The lack of voice chat doesn’t bother me in the slightest, but I think there should have been an option at least for those who do like it.

The amiibo look cool and I’m interested in getting all three not just for decoration, but for those extra missions too. I’m optimistic that Splatoon could sell some Wii Us, but it will be a challenge. The game itself will do very well at least.



NintyMan commented on Each Splatoon amiibo Will Unlock 20 Special Ch...:

More functionality for amiibo, the better. I want my amiibo to be used in more games rather than just being decoration. As for Splatoon, I think the amiibo could be put to good use, but I'll have to actually try it out first.



NintyMan commented on Former Rare Devs Playtonic Want Donkey Kong Co...:

That's right, Playtonic, vote for King K. Rool even though you all want Banjo-Kazooie too!

The Donkey Kong series needs another fighter badly, and King K. Rool would be so much better than Dixie Kong. Super Smash Bros. needs more villain characters anyway. After all, the third character added to a series tends to be the villain anyway. Bowser was the third character for the Mario series and Ganondorf for the Zelda series.



NintyMan commented on Video: This 200cc Mario Kart 8 Comparison Foot...:

Whoa, you can go above the castle wall now!

When first seeing 200cc in the Direct, I thought it looked cool, but I didn't really understand just how much faster it would be. These comparison videos are extremely helpful. They should have had a comparison during the Direct.



NintyMan commented on Review: WarioWare Touched! (Wii U eShop / DS):

WarioWare Touched is an excellent game in the already excellent WarioWare series. There's a lot of things to do. Having it on the eShop will make it nice for people because the game is actually extremely rare in retail.



NintyMan commented on Review: Super Mario 64 (Wii U eShop / Nintendo...:

Super Mario 64, despite its age, should still be lauded as a truly revolutionary game. While I was just a little kid at the time, I didn't experience the wonder that players surely felt at that time to jump from 16-bit to 64-bit! My experience came a bit later in the 90's when 3D gaming became standard.

It's still one of my favorite games. The exploration has only been matched by Super Mario Sunshine so far and I still long to explore sandbox worlds with Mario again. I guess I can just play this game again in the meantime.



NintyMan commented on Poll: Which Characters Do You Want to Win the ...:

My most wanted character is King K. Rool. I’m not voting for any other character besides him.
However, some other characters I wouldn’t mind:
2.Shovel Knight
5. Hades
6. Mona
7. Bandana Dee
I’d rather have a newcomer than a veteran, so I wouldn’t say Wolf anymore. But I have a feeling Nintendo might be working on him anyway.



NintyMan commented on Review: Mario Kart DS (Wii U eShop / DS):

Mario Kart DS is definitely one of the best Mario Karts. Introduction of online and retro tracks, nice karts, and Missions made it stand out. It would be cool to have Missions again.



NintyMan commented on Video: WarioWare Touched! Arrives On Wii U Vir...:

WarioWare: Touched is a great installment in the excellent WarioWare series. I don't know if I'd get it considering I have a copy, but it only makes sense for Nintendo to release it again for VC.

WarioWare: Twisted would be great. The GamePad does have a gyroscope. Europe's never gotten Twisted, which is a shame because it's probably the best WarioWare.



NintyMan commented on Gallery: Yarn Yoshi Is Just Too Darn Cute:

Yarn Yoshi is not just cute, he's adorable! This game's cuteness is meeting my high standards so far. I can tell there was a lot of love and attention in the making of Yoshi's Woolly World.



NintyMan commented on Xbox Boss Phil Spencer Reckons "It Would Be Co...:

That's really cool! I would be all for Banjo-Kazooie in Smash Bros. if Rare and Microsoft were a-okay with it. Whether they could actually get enough votes would be one thing, but if they really were added, that would be fascinating.

With that attitude, I can see why Donkey Kong 64 was put on the Wii U VC with Jetpac still in it.



NintyMan commented on Feature: Gawk at Fancy Super Smash Bros. Mewtw...:

Mewtwo is a lock through Club Nintendo and I'll get Lucas, so the characters are just great. A few of the costumes are cool, but most of them are just okay. I'll probably just get the Smash Bros. shirt and maybe Majora's Mask.

Now if there were DLC stages and music, then we would be talking!



NintyMan commented on Video: See for Yourself How 200cc Speed Affect...:

Whoa! I didn't expect it to be that drastic! This comparison truly makes it obvious how fast things are going to be. That's seriously going to change everything.

A Captain Falcon suit or Sonic suit would be fitting for a Mii to wear during that.



NintyMan commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Turns to Classics, DLC...:

It was a good Direct. Definitely not perfect, but it had some genuinely huge surprises, like Lucas, the Smash Fighter Ballot, and the extra mode for Mario Kart 8. I can understand the frustration about no new games or "filler" content, but Nintendo simply needed to remind fans about the good stuff coming and more after all the rapid speculation about DeNA and NX. I'm personally looking forward to the DLC.

My only disappointment is the long wait for Yoshi's Woolly World in Fall for America. I think it's very likely Nintendo could still bump it up another month or so. Issues with making the Yarn Yoshi is all I can come up with. I have a small concern that this summer actually looks rather light for Nintendo in NA. But the big hitters are definitely reserved for E3 at this point.
