Nintendo, I choose you!

Male, Netherlands

Hi! I'm Poketendo, formally known as mario-gek, and I'm a huge Nintendo fan! I just love Nintendo's creative and fun idea's, and their games are the best! Pokémon, Super Smash Bros, Metroid and of course, Mario are definitly the very best, like no one ever was! ;-)

Poketendo commented on New amiibo Stock for Villager, Captain Falcon ...:

Wait, Captain Falcon is rare? I'll admit that Villager is hard to find, even here on the Dutch countryside, and Little Mac is extremely rare here (not that I care about him) but Captain Falcon? He's in every toy store around here! On Marktplaats (the Dutch eBay), he can't be sold with even the smallest of a profit!



Poketendo commented on Review: Pokémon Shuffle (3DS eShop):

I did download it, but I already have Pokémon Link Battle and I like that better. Apart from it being a full unlimited game for €7,99 (not meant as critisism towards the micro transactions), I just find the gameplay more fun. You can move all the Pokémon on the field around freely, rather than be forced to make a move or do nothing. You can plan out your strategies a little bit more, and I like that. There's just more to it than seeing where a Pokémon can go, it's more about seeing where multiple can go. It's hard to explain, but I like it better, and I seriously recommend buying that too if you like this.



Poketendo commented on Feature: Tales From the Front Line of amiibo C...:

OH MY GOD! THIS IS JUST RIDICULOUS! I honestly don't get this. In my local toy shops, they have just as many Wii Fit Trainers, Villagers, Marths and Rosalinas as any other character. In fact, not a single Sheik or Captain Falcon appears to have been sold. I do live about half an hour away from the big city (I live in the Netherlands), but still. These stories just are unbelievable to me!



Poketendo commented on Pokémon Shuffle Available to Download Right N...:

I already have Pokémon Link Battle, and I personally like that one better. In this one, you move the Pokémon, and the game immediately removes the row, or puts it back in its original position. I think it was more fun in Pokémon Link Battle, where you had a little more control over your combos. Not to mention, it's only €8. I'm not going to complain too much about the microtransactions, I just think it's silly when fans of the game can just buy Pokémon Link Battle for €8 and get a complete game



Poketendo commented on Rumour: Rayman Could be Planned as DLC in Supe...:

@Inkling I know they said he was early in development, but think about it. They presented a brand new HD model of Mewtwo, and another model for the 3DS version. That was a completely unique model, which looked like it was almost, if not completely done. Why would they go through all the trouble of creating a new model, then use it in all the Mewtwo DLC promotion, only to then create a new model (which looks worse in my opinion). It just doesn't make any sense to do, and I don't think they did.



Poketendo commented on Rumour: Rayman Could be Planned as DLC in Supe...:

A) The video has been removed from YouTube BY THE ORIGINAL UPLOADER
B) Mewtwo's render looks nothing like the model we've already seen, and considering they also use that model for all promotion, it's unlikely we'll see another model in the final version
C) Sonic: Insanely high fan request, Sega and Nintendo have becomen friends. Mega Man: Rich history on Nintendo and huge fan favourite. Pac-Man: insanely well-known and partnership with Bandai Namco. Snake: Hideo Kojima begged Sakurai on his knees for his inclusion. Why would they ever add Rayman? I thought Nintendo and Ubisoft were on (VERY) shaky ground?
This is fake, it's definitely fake. I honestly don't really care about Rayman in Smash anyway. If he was DLC, I would buy it, but I can live without it.



Poketendo commented on Flipnote Studio 3D Free Download Details Point...:

I'm just hoping Nintendo of Europe does what this says. In Europe (or at least in the Netherlands) you can't create a new Club Nintendo account without immediately registering a game, and I don't have any unused codes. But if we both create a new account, and then we'll both get the game, then I don't have any objections



Poketendo commented on New Nintendo 3DS Release Date Confirmed for 13...:

Please, I just need an answer. Is the amiibo adapter for the original 3DS still coming? Will I be able to play Smash with my amiibo on my original 3DS? Please? I can't afford a New 3DS system, and I already have three amiibo...



Poketendo commented on Review: Meme Run (Wii U eShop):

Perhaps their goal was to make a game so bad that it would become a meme of it's own. Many other games have accomplished this, like Big Rigs (PC), Action 52 (NES), all games published by LJN (mostly NES), and Ninjabread Man (Wii), just to name a few. But in order to become a meme, the game first has to build op a bad reputation. Kind of a shameful goal actually



Poketendo commented on UK Retailer GAME Cashes In On Intense amiibo D...:

Really? They're doing awesome? At my local toy shops, they don't seem to sell at all. Not only that, but they barely have any. Just Mario, Peach, Pikachu and Yoshi, and maybe one Samus or Fox. No Villager, no Marth, no Wii Fit Trainer, nothing. Come on Intertoys! Get your amiibo in stock!



Poketendo commented on Mewtwo Club Nintendo Super Smash Bros. Distrib...:

Buying him. I'll buy €15 Nintendo eShop credit, buy Mewtwo, and use the remaining credit to buy VC games. I just hope that it won't take too long after the Club Nintendo action in spring for him to become available for purchase



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

@Quorthon I'm sorry. I never intended to be childish. I'm just saying that if Sony flat out states that PSVita is better, then I think that's a little weak. While Nintendo did say what they had to offer compared to PS4, they never offended them. This sounds to me like Sony does. It's OK to praise your own hardware, jut don't overdo it. Now that I think about it, my comment indeed was a little childish. But that was never in my intentions
