NintyMan commented on Review: Splatoon (Wii U):

No doubt that this is will be a major game for summer, and one in which I can see myself spending a lot of time with, even with not being a shooter fan! The Testfire proved to me how fun this game is, and I expect the single-player mode, even if it's rather short, will still be a fun diversion. I look forward to trying out different weapons and types to see what fits!



NintyMan commented on Cabbage Is The Dream Nintendo Game That Never Was:

Never heard of this before. Without looking at anything I'd assume that the name "Cabbage" would refer to raising some kind of vegetable creature similar to cabbage. It also makes sense when considering Cabbage Patch Dolls, though these creatures probably wouldn't have resembled humans.



NintyMan commented on Feature: Yoshi's Woolly World, Like Kirby's Ep...:

I think it's a mistake to say this is just like Kirby's Epic Yarn's dfficulty. There actually is dying in this game and this is Yoshi, not Kirby. A traditional Yoshi game is going to be fairly easy to beat, but very tough to complete 100%.



NintyMan commented on Feature: Yoshi's Woolly World, Like Kirby's Ep...:

Tropical Freeze is a great game and even better than Returns in every way. The poor reaction to that game was too bad. People's disappointment for not getting another game like Metroid should never cloud their judgment of Tropical Freeze, which is easily one of the finest platformers on Wii U.

But to get back to this topic, I can tell Yoshi's Wolly World will also be a great game. I'll even go so far as to say it'll be the best Yoshi game since Yoshi's Island, which really isn't saying much considering all the average to mediocre Yoshi games there had been since. Yoshi's Story is okay, but has its flaws. This game, however, will be longer, more challenging, and take the best of both Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Story, combining it with an adorable wool presentation that not only looks adorable, but also helps to keep gameplay interesting.



NintyMan commented on Feature: Go Fast - An Ode To The Glorious Chao...:

I'd love to see a new F-Zero at this E3, but it's highly unlikely. However, I do believe the Mario Kart 8 DLC is grooming us for it later on. It would be for NX. Just as Nintendo chose to have Star Fox skip Wii for Wii U to get a more interesting control scheme, so F-Zero will likely skip Wii U in favor of NX and whatever interesting controller interface it has. I still feel a F-Zero game on Wii U would be brilliant if pulled off correctly, but I don't work in Nintendo to have a better idea what the future holds in hardware.



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

This is already something I’ve mentioned twice before while almost everyone was freaking out. The Testfire is meant for this exact situation, so that when the game is actually out, Nintendo could have a better chance to react to a server crash. I wholeheartedly agree with taking a glass half-full approach!



NintyMan commented on Splatoon Global Testfire Suffers Major Problem...:

I was able to get a few more matches in thanks to their extension, but that first hour was unfortunate. With this being for testing, Nintendo should have hopefully learned from this for when the game's actually released. Again, that's what this testfire was meant for.



NintyMan commented on Splatoon Global Testfire Suffers Major Problem...:

Nintendo really failed at this, which is too bad as this was the very last one. I did so well in my one match too! I got a lot better at the arcade game by going up to Stage 20, though I didn't join this to play the arcade.

Hopefully Nintendo fixes this in time for release. This is what the Global Testfire is for, after all, online preparation in case of a meltdown like this.



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.
