Phle commented on Talking Point: Mario Maker Can Be A Game Chang...:

I've got to say, I'm not a Mario fan, mainly because I don't like platformers (I like Mario Kart). But even I think Mario Maker looks pretty interesting, I might even buy it. If Nintendo plays it right, it can be huge. In my opinion they should let people bring Mario Maker to YouTube, but I see that might be unlikely.



Phle commented on Splatoon Creation Was Inspired by Rare's Perfe...:

I've never played Perfect Dark, so I can't say I do.

But I really like how Splatoon looks FUN. I mean really fun, I've never seen a shooter that I looked fun the way Splatoon does. I already pre-ordered the game with the squid Amiibo (^_^) I'm probably going to get the two other Splatoon Amiibos as well.



Phle commented on Zelda Lookalike Oceanhorn: Monster Of Uncharte...:

This game is probably a good game.

What I dislike is the creators lack of imagination to make their own monsters, their own boat, their own way of getting random items and not just take the pots and the grass chopping from Zelda. There is nothing wrong with wanting to create a game with a Zelda like type of gameplay, but that doesn't mean you should take designs from an already existing game.

Look at Darksiders, they made a game with a Zelda like gameplay. But they made their own game. That's what other developers should do when they think: "Wind Waker is great, I want to make a game like that". They should create their own game, not Wind Waker with modified story and characters.

I would have been embarrassed if I made a game like this and people asked how I came up with all the amazing ideas and for every idea I had to answer: "I got it from a Zelda game I once played..."



Phle commented on Nintendo’s Free-To-Play Experiment Pokémon ...:

Well, both me and my BF have been playing Pokémon Shuffle. It's great when you watch TV and they switch to commercials. Just turn off the sound on the TV and play Pokémon Shuffle until the commercials are over. By the next commercial break you are likely to have generated a new heart too (^_^) I hate ads and commercials.



Phle commented on Guide: Everything We Know So Far About Nintend...:

Not sure how I feel about this.

They better mean iPhone and iPad when they say Smart Devices. I'm not buying an Android or a Windows device.

Still, this might be just what Nintendo needs to do in order to keep their spot in the gaming world. Everyone else seems to be moving on to tablets and mobile devices for handheld gaming. A better account system would do them good.



Phle commented on Swedish Newspaper Questions The European Relea...:

This game doesn't bother me, and I'm a woman. That said I haven't played the game myself, only seen trailers and such.

It's like @Pokefanmum82 said: It's just a game.

Some women tends to overreact on how fictional female characters are designed. Either they made them too thin (anorexic looking and tall), they are too well shaped (big boobs and round hips), too perfect or too young. What they mean to say is: they want chubby, tiny chested, ugly ladies in their mid 30's everywhere. I hope that never happens.



Phle commented on The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Speedrun ...:

Looks like he has done this a lot of times. Although he is using glitches to get fast through the game, he seems pretty skilled. I'm guessing all it takes to end up being too slow is one little mistake.

@Espy I see your point, but wouldn't an Ocarina of Time speedrun without using glitches take too long for anyone to watch?



Phle commented on Pokémon Shuffle Updated Once Again, Adds a Sp...:

I got one (^_^)
Why is Kyogre so much more powerful than Mew?

This game seems to have it's own stats for each Pokémon and totally ignore the National Pokédex in terms of power, ability and sometimes type (I realise that they merge a Pokémon's types into one, but sometimes I disagree about their choice among the two types. Like Marill is usually water and fairy, I would say it's main type is water, but in Pokémon Shuffle they have chosen fairy).



Phle commented on These 3D Printed New Nintendo 3DS Cover Plates...:

This almost makes me want a regular sized New 3DS. I've already got the New 3DS XL though, so I'll probably won't be getting it. But these are really nice, Nintendo could have done something like this themselves :)



Phle commented on Full Details Emerge on Shin Megami Tensei: Dev...:

Not sure about this. SMT: Devil Survivor Overclocked looked so interesting, but I still haven't finished it. The fights are so boring that I can't get through them without falling asleep... The story seems nice, but that fights are everlasting and often has to be repeated in order to level enough to progress the story...



Phle commented on Nintendo Confirms Wil Wheaton as Voice Actor f...:

I must say, I'm getting this game. My decision is not based on the voice actors, but rather the fact that I think I will enjoy this game, as I have already enjoyed the Demo.

Besides, Will Wheaton is unlikely to be able to express personal opinions though this game. He's just one of the voice actors.



Phle commented on Accessory Review: WaterField New Nintendo 3DS ...:

I own both the New Nintendo 3DS XL Suede Jacket also known as the "Regular Nintendo 3DS XL Suede Jacket" and the New Nintendo 3DS XL CitySlicker Case also known as the "Regular Nintendo 3DS XL CitySlicker Case", as neither of them has been modified for the New XL.

They said they didn't need to modify it in order for the New 3DS XL to fit perfectly and that's true for the New Nintendo 3DS XL CitySlicker Case.

However the New Nintendo 3DS XL Suede Jacket is slightly short on the New 3DS XL and they could have added a 5mm length to make it a proper fit for the New 3DS XL. I recently bought a New Nintendo 3DS XL Suede Jacket for my boyfriend and can confirm that it haven't been changed as I already own a Nintendo 3DS XL Suede Jacket and they are the same when compared. I also asked about this when I ordered it.

Even so, I highly recommend both cases. The New Nintendo 3DS XL CitySlicker Case has one thing worth mentioning: I tend to get less StreetPass when I use this case.

Also: The New 3DS XL will NOT slide out the New Nintendo 3DS XL Suede Jacket, it's actually pretty tight and you have to pull carefully to get the New 3DS XL out. It's a very useful case if you would like to keep your New 3DS XL as portable as possible. The pocket is perfect for a slim game card holder that holds 1-3 games.



Phle commented on Soapbox: Portable Gaming Forges a Special Rela...:

My first gaming console was a DS Lite. I liked it a lot, played so many games on it. However the 3DS was the first console to steal my heart. I just got a New 3DS XL, Majoras Mask Edition, my third 3DS in total. The first one was a pretty random buy. I heard the reviews and thought I didn't need one, but got one as a comfort after a having an unusual hard day. That was in October 2011. Almost every day since then I've been playing on my 3DS before I go to sleep. I always bring it with me. I have a scary amount of the 3DS library, most of them in boxed copies. I got my sister a 3DS XL a few years ago and yesterday I gave my boyfriend a New 3DS XL as a Valentines Day gift. I can only hope he'll like it as much as I do.



Phle commented on Guide: How to Complete a System Transfer from ...:

@ThomasBW84 I'm getting more and more confused as I read more about this as people keeps giving away different information.

I'm already using a 32g Micro SD card with my old 3DS. I'm getting the Majora's Mask Limited edition that comes with the game pre-installed. Now, if I do the system transfer and select "No" when when asked if I'm using an SD card with my system (as I already use a Micro SD card with an adapter), will I be able to redownload Majora's Mask after the system transfer is complete?

Is the Animal Crossing saving data issue true? That you have to delete the game from your console and create a unique save data backup (that from what I hear can't be made in any other way, as far as I know it only goes for Animal Crossing and Pokémon) before you transfer the games to your new console, if you are going to use Wireless Transfer (Limited Data) and maybe other Transfer methods as well? I'm not too concerned if I can put my current Micro SD card in my New 3DS, but I know others wonders about this as well...



Phle commented on Video: New Nintendo 3DS XL Commercials Show Of...:

Nintendo should do TV commercials. And other commercials.

I mean, I have never seen a Nintendo commercial other than the ones I see here, watching the official Nintendo YouTube channel, or visiting their official pages.

I even recently learned that Nintendo has this cool guide booklet featuring all their best Wii U and 3DS games. I learned it by answering a quiz from Nintendo and one of the questions was about some of the pages in that book. I had to use Google to find the PDF version. It was great! So sad you can't see it in stores, it was obviously meant to be a free guide to what games you should get for your Nintendo console. No one looks for something like that on Google.



Phle commented on Weirdness: BAFTA Appears To Have Clean Forgott...:

They could have nominated one 3DS exclusive and one Vita exclusive just because they are "handheld gaming consoles". Seems wrong to skip the 3DS and pretty much Vita too in favour of mobile devices and tablets...



Phle commented on Developers Outline Their Ideas for Nintendo's ...:

Well, I hope they will have backward comparability. I love that with the 3DS and the Wii U. They have so many great games on DS, Wii, 3DS and Wii U. Don't let them dust away. Sony made a terrible choice for the PS4, because I would have bought one if I could play PS3 games on it, but I can't and then my entire interest just died.
I also hope that they don't make their next console a phone. A tablet or a gaming console maybe even with android or iOS support would be okay.
The portable console and home console working together as one, sounds like an interesting idea.
I also hope they will have more online support, so it would be easier to play online and create online games for other developers. Maybe even optional 4G support and better web browsers. 4G support can make sense on a portable console.
I hope they will choose to have a higher resolution screen and a more powerful system next time. I'm not the tech obsessed kind of person, and I think most 3DS games look great, some gamers however, would disagree with me. Nintendo could benefit from it, like when you watch YouTube videos on your 3DS, it's suddenly clear, some video's are just too detailed to watch on the 3DS. Also, I think with a higher resolution screen and a more powerful system, more developers would be interested in creating games for the system. Nintendo makes great games, but their console would be even better with a good 3rd party support.

And one more thing: a solid good name. Nothing confusing like "The NEW 3DS" just did.



Phle commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D ...:

I really can't wait to play this game! I love that they made a remake, I have never played this game before. Same with Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker, although they where remakes, they where all new to me, as I had never played them before. I don't see why people complain.



Phle commented on Hundreds of Limited Edition Majora's Mask New ...:

I pre-ordered the Majora's Mask edition yesterday, and when I went online today, the store had increased their price. It doesn't affect me, as I will get it for the price they had when I pre-ordered, but it's a little disgusting. They increased the price, just because other stores are sold out and they can increase the price, because people will pay anyway.



Phle commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2015:

I voted for Majoras Mask (I haven't played it before, so it's all new to me) but I'm looking forward to Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate & Dementium: The Ward as well.



Phle commented on Digital Foundry Praises the Performance for Su...:

Wow. Amazing.

I hate the fact that my 3DS still isn't in shape to play Super Smash Bros. Having it sent to be repaired will have to wait until after Christmas, and even then it seems I might not be able to have it done because I bought it at terrible online store that I don't trust and I will not let them touch my 3DS XL ever.



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

I voted "maybe". Because it would have to be my other phone. Sorry, but I have an iPhone and I can't see myself without one. So it would be a second phone, the one I used for gaming and not for calling, texting or using apps. I don't know how many people who wants a second phone. I think it's few. I really don't want one. But if Nintendo made their next handheld a phone and gaming console combined in one thing, I might get one, just to play their games. But I would much rather just have their new handheld gaming console.



Phle commented on Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire Enjoy Biggest UK P...:

Well, I've got to say Nintendo chose a terrible day to launch Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Amiibo. I got Omega Ruby for me and Alpha Sapphire for my BF. Amiibo and Super Smash Bros. has to wait at least a week, probably more... I still haven't had time to get Bayonetta 1 & 2 either.
