I thought she did pretty good for what it was. The CGI was incredibly well done but there was way too much of it, kind of took me out of it. I wish they had a really good prop suit to use but maybe that would cost more then the CGI? Overall pretty damn good for a short fan film. Really enjoyed the titles/credits too.

Pre-ordered Legend of Legacy a while back with the artbook and other goodies, can't wait for that to come in. And I'm gonna pick up Chibi-Robo, missed out on all his previous efforts...not this time!



Oaf7724 commented on Review: Legend of Kay Anniversary (Wii U):

Awesome, been waiting for this review. I was leaning heavily towards getting it because adventure-platormers are some of my favorite games and they don't really come along too often these days. Sounds like this one is up my alley.



Oaf7724 commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd July (North America):

Definitely Legend of Kay, I've been craving a good platforming/adventure game. Also Dragon Fantasy has peaked my interest. Watched some videos for Canvaleon too, it looks like a pretty solid game! Hope it gets some more coverage on NL.

I can't believe this news, RIP Iwata, thank you for everything! Condolences to his family and friends. As a gamer and huge Nintendo fan boy I greatly appreciate all he did for the company. His sense of humor hosting the Directs has been a personal favorite of mine. He will be greatly missed.

I am a huge Nintendo fan boy, and right now I'm kind of torn. I know there are some good games coming out, and I think the Metroid hate is childish and excessive (although it is frustrating that a new Metroid Prime-style game is not even in development). I still feel very let down by the show, especially after how good last year's was. I think that is what hurts most. Nintendo was on a roll, turning profits, announcing some great new games and IPs, and this extremely lackluster showing was very disheartening.

I am very worried about amiibo as well. I've always seen them as just a cash grab and now I'm very concerned that they will start making them required for games (e.g. Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival) and that is going to create a huge rift in the gaming community. This is a very big deal and we need gaming sites like NintendoLife and the community to express (intelligently) why this is not a good idea.



Oaf7724 commented on Video: Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric Blame Could L...:

That was a great video. I never fully blamed BRB for the game, as SEGA was pushing them hard to release the game earlier then the game needed anyway.

I feel like SEGA was only concerned with getting sales from children that watch the show, and were alright with the game not being favorable to older, more experienced gamers.



Oaf7724 commented on Analyst Thinks Nintendo Is Already Winding Dow...:

This is silly. Honestly I don't know why everyone was so surprised by the announcement of NX. Nintendo has stated before that they start working on their next system right after they release their current one. NX has been in development since right after Wii U was released.

Also Nintendo has been pretty consistent with a 5-6 year gap between console releases. 1985 1991 1996 2001 2006 2012.



Oaf7724 commented on Video: We Go Hands On With Some 2nd Wave amiib...:

At the Nintendo World Store in NYC, they had Zelda, a few Lil Macs, and Diddy Kong. Picked up a Lil Mac, couldn't believe they were out of Luigi already. They were also out of Captain Falcon and Pit, as well as villager, wii fit trainer and marth, as you would expect.

They did have a fresh stock of the Gamecube controller adapters though, which was comforting.



Oaf7724 commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Sold to Over Ten P...:

I'm confused, there is an earlier article on NL stating that four 3DS games (smash, yokai, pokemon, monster) have sold over 2 million copies each in Japan, but on this list two of them are still below 2 million in lifetime sales.

Do these numbers not include digital download?



Oaf7724 commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

I really don't think it would be a good idea.

It would take too much attention away from their home console / portable console business and frankly they need all the attention they can get currently.

Also look at Amazon's Fire phone. That came out with a lot of hooplah and a strong price tag not too long ago. Now it's on the verge of extinction and the price has been reduced drastically.



Oaf7724 commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Sells Nearly 500,0...:

I too expected a bit more then that, but it's still a great number. Plus I know a lot of my friends have yet to get it, plus all the holiday shopping, it's going to do very well.

I'm curious about Pokemon's ORAS numbers. When I was in line for Smash early release, the line seemed to be filled with more people for Pokemon.



Oaf7724 commented on Talking Point: Super Smash Bros. Can Finally R...:

I think the amiibos, as figurines, are well-crafted and pretty cool for collectors.
However their functionality, imho, seems very weak and tacked on to me. It will be interesting to see if they can maintain a popularity.



Oaf7724 commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

I don't really have a problem with this. These execs are just doing their job, you need to believe that your system is the best, and to try and sell it as the best. The sales numbers will speak the truth. I really wish we could get NA/UK NPD figures weekly like we do from JPN....and not have them hidden from the public.
