Octane commented on Shovel Knight is Coming to Retail:

I haven't bought Shovel Knight yet.. That's a good thing, now I can get the physical version. Didn't expect this, but I usually hold off digital games in case a physical copy gets released.



Octane commented on Veterans Of 3DS Title Xeodrifter Will Get The ...:

Didn't even know this was already out yet.. However, between Yoshi's Woolly World (hopefully I can start playing that game today), and the upcoming Splat Fest in Splatoon, this has to wait until next week at least.



Octane commented on Masahiro Sakurai Confirms That Recent Super Sm...:

@Koopa-King The character with the most votes isn't guaranteed to be in Smash, it's just a measure of popularity. In the end, it's still Sakurai's choice (and of course any third parties that might be involved) whether he wants to put that character in the game or not.



Octane commented on Video: The Nintendo Life Reaction to Nintendo'...:

@teoulas Activision Skylanders partnership? I'm not sure, they never specifically mentioned E3, they only said ''in the near future''. But you know, having something with ''E3'' in the title just before E3, makes for a way better clickbait article.



Octane commented on Star Fox Zero Started Life Way Back On The Ori...:

I doesn't look as good as most Wii U titles. However there is good news, updating textures and adding more objects isn't very time consuming. There's still enough time for a good amount of polishing. However, in my opinion they should've done that before E3, not after.



Octane commented on First Impressions: Kicking Off With Metroid Pr...:

@JaxonH It isn't confirmed that Retro Studios is working on a new Metroid, right? That's just speculation.

Also, last time a Metroid game was in the works it got cancelled, just like Metroid Dread, and Metroid 64... Being ''in the works'', doesn't guarantee anything.



Octane commented on Super Mario Maker's Packaging Sure Looks Pretty:

Not sure if I'll get the book, but I like the looks of the box art.

Too bad for North America, I don't think their box art looks nearly as cool, and they get that ugly red case, like with Mario Kart 8.



Octane commented on Feature: What We Expect from Nintendo's E3 Dig...:

Galaxy 3, Sunshine 2/HD or Metroid Prime 4 would be big disappointments for me. I'm sure they could come up with something more original than that. They were all great games, but enough is enough, I don't want to be playing Metroid Prime or Mario Galaxy for eternity. Give us a new Metroid or a new Mario, something unrelated. Or even better, a new IP.



Octane commented on Satoru Iwata Outlines His Reasons For Not Atte...:

@FragRed They never said that he are going to talk about NX during E3 2016. They only said that they weren't going to talk about NX until at least 2016, which could also mean late 2016, or 2017. I don't think they'll wait that long, but nothing is technically confirmed.



Octane commented on Nintendo UK Confirms Its Community's Top 10 Wi...:

10. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
9. Bayonetta 2
8. Splatoon
7. Pikmin 3
6. Hyrule Warriors
5. Super Mario 3D World
4. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD
3. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
2. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
1. Mario Kart 8

There was something wrong with the list, I think I fixed it.



Octane commented on Nintendo of America Unleashes a Nintendo Direc...:

@Kirk ''A game contestants should prepare for'' I think that indicates a game that has already been released. I think it's the original Zelda, but we'll see. As since it's going to be part of the Championships it seems, I doubt it'll be Zelda U or any other new Zelda game.



Octane commented on Review: Splatoon (Wii U):

@Kirk I think those represent the average points scored by the team. So the total sum of the earned experience points divided by 4.

Based on how well you played, you'll receive experience points after each match. Those points level up your character. The higher level you are, the more weapons you unlock in the store for you to buy.



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

@electrolite77 Why do pre-orders encourage laziness? I pre-ordered the game for several reasons; it saves me five bucks, pre-orders come with free delivery and by doing so I'm certain that the game is in my mail when I get home friday evening. Plus I don't have to waste gas by driving to the nearest game store.



Octane commented on Nintendo Ditches Plans To Create New Hardware ...:

@Quorthon From E3's official site: ''E3 is the world's premier trade show for computer, video and mobile games and related products. At E3, the video game industry's top talent pack the Los Angeles Convention Center, connecting tens of thousands of the best, brightest, and most innovative professionals in the interactive entertainment industry.''

QOL isn't related to computer, video or mobile games. Nintendo won't reveal QOL at E3.



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

@FragRed Well the ''focus'' is on 2015, so I wouldn't be surprised if we get a glimpse of 2016 titles as well. The problem with last year's E3 was that almost everything that was announced was for 2015, a lot of titles got delayed due to them simply announcing games too early. But remember, Mario 3D World and Captain Toad were announced at E3 and were released later in their respective year, so surprise 2015 titles aren't out of the question either.

@crzysortagamer Nintendo has yet to announce the actual time and date of their E3 event, or whatever they are going to do this year. Usually they're the last one to host a E3 presentation.



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

@Dpullam @Quorthon It's a server stress test, not a demo. Limiting time ensures there are enough people playing at one time to test the servers. They want to make sure everything works fine once the game releases, so we don't end up with crashed servers (Like SimCity). Allowing people to play for an entire weekend will probably spread the amount of people over the weekend out.



Octane commented on You Don't Need A Yoshi amiibo To Unlock Stuff ...:

@Grumblevolcano Yarn Yoshi saves one design, to take with you, and allows for multiplayer (just like regular Yoshi). Mario, Luigi, Peach and other(?) amiibo unlock a costume, but you can already unlock a costume in every level in the game itself. So there are plenty of costumes available if you don't have any amiibo.
