Poketendo commented on Review: Pokémon Link: Battle! (3DS eShop):

I have been stuck between buying this one and Retro City Rampage for a long time. Retro City Rampage looked fun, but it just didn't look like something I would enjoy for very long. This looked fun, but I just had my doubts. But now that I have read this, I'm certainly gonna get this!



Poketendo commented on Review: Yoshi's New Island (3DS):

To be honest, I wasn't very impressed by the trailer, and I didn't feel like getting the game (just like with any other Yoshi's Island game so far), but a 5/10 is still a dissapointment. I honestly expected a 7, maybe a 6 out of 10. No, it didn't look good. Yes, it looked pretty boring. But still, I was hoping for the game to have some potential. So this score is really dissapointing if you ask me.



Poketendo commented on Pokémon Link: Battle!:

I wish I could. If Retro City Rampage was just €1 cheaper, then it could have happened. But now I'm thinking about buying this one, Punch-Out!! NES, and Bike Racer DX. That exactly matches my funds. RCR looks awesome, but I guess I'm just gonna have to wait until I get my next Nintendo Points Card to get it.



Poketendo commented on Weirdness: Samus Aran's Metroid Backstory Re-i...:

I totally agree. Yes, the clip looks awesome and the song is good too, but I just can't see the connection with Samus. I think the mysterious life of a lonely bounty hunter, like what the games tell us, really is what Metroid is all about. Yes, I know Metroid Other M gave us a little line-up, but I think that the entire mystery behind it is what really makes Metroid's storyline special.



Poketendo commented on Hacking Group Claims To Have Discovered Wii U ...:

I was gonna give my opinion on these hackers, but the comment was too long to post and had way to many bad words in it. But long story short, I F****** HATE THOSE F****** HACKERS! THOSE F****** IDIOTS RUIN EVERYTHING GOOD! "But games are so expensive" THAT'S BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO BECAUSE NOBODY BUYS GAMES ANYMORE!!!



Poketendo commented on Video: Nintendo Minute Catches Up With Two eSh...:

Nicalis is definetly one of my favourite developers . Even though I didn't really like Cave Story, VVVVVV was simply awesome! I almost broke my 3DS out of frustration in the last level, but I love it! I haven't tried NightSky yet, but maybe I will in the future. It certainly looks interesting. And this 1001 spikes looks simply amazing! Can't wait to play it!



Poketendo commented on Review: Super Mario 3D Land (3DS):

Thank heavens for the Club Nintendo 3D Land campaign. Just got it for free using a 3DS code from one of my friends (he bought the 3DS + Super Mario 3D Land combo pack, so he didn't need it). Now downloading it!!!!!!!! :-D



Poketendo commented on Nintendo Direct Focusing On Wii U And 3DS Game...:

Why oh why do I have to go to school tomorrow!? Guess I'm gonna have to watch the recording on YouTube... But seriously, I really hope they announce something about Smash Bros. I can't wait for that one to come out, so I'm begging for a release date.



Poketendo commented on VVVVVV:

This game is awesome! The manual is useless, but the rest is just awesome! Was absolutely worth it! My head almost exploded playing through the last levels (last level took me about 2 to 3 hours) but still, it is just awesome!



Poketendo commented on The 3DS YouTube App Has Finally Gone Live:

so dissapointed! my version keeps crashing! I tryed deleting and redownloading it but it didn't fix it. and when it didn't crash, the video kept pausing every 4 seconds, the picture quality is terrible, and the sound is bad too! This app is terrible!



Poketendo commented on Nintendo Download: 21st November (Europe):

@BlatantlyHeroic Because there are a lot of other things I have or want to buy in the meanwhile too. I haven't got that much money, especially since I only bought my 3DS recently. I'd rather save up more of my pocket money in case I really need it (for example, if my phone or 3DS breaks), and only buy games I really really really really really really really want, like Smash Bros 4. A Link Between Worlds is still on the list, just not that high.



Poketendo commented on The Cube:

...Judging the title and not knowing the show, I expected a puzzle game. But this sounds rather boring...



Poketendo commented on Ben 10 Omniverse 2:

Played Ben 10 Ultimate Alien Cosmic Destruction on DS. It's fun, but that's it. Nothing worth coming back too. Hope this one is better. Then I MAY rent it... (not that big a fan of the show anymore)



Poketendo commented on Review: Donkey Kong (3DS eShop / NES):

Already got if for my Wii. We got to pick a free NES game after the Internet Channel turned free and my dad was like "Oh wow it's Donkey Kong!" You're totally right. It's fun, in (very) short periods.



Poketendo commented on Video: This "10 New Things" Super Mario 3D Wor...:

I have to admit, I really like Rosalina, and I would love to see her in more games, but I just think she isn't really that good a fit for this type of game. Just look at her in Super Mario Galaxy. Does she go along with Mario to help him retrieve the power stars? No, no she doesn't. I think she fits in just fine in Mario Kart, but Super Mario 3D World? No, I just don't see her as the jumping-around-killing-enemies-collecting-power-ups-girl. I personally think Daisy would've fit better, and they should have saved Rosalina for another game where she fits better (but please, do add her to more games)



Poketendo commented on Sonic Generations:

I rented it. And I think that's all this game is worth. Just a rent. Don't get me wrong, I still think the game is fun, but I just think it isn't worth the €25, when you can get it for a week for €0,75 (Dutch library logic)



Poketendo commented on Vote: Pick Your Favourite NES Games:

...All hope has been lost. They'll never tell us. And I wanted to know so bad, even though my favourites list has changed in the meanwhile (only shows how long it has been)... :-(



Poketendo commented on Nintendo Set To End Production of the Wii:

That's just too bad. It's noticable though, our Wii broke around a week ago. It's currently being repaired. We got one almost right when it was released, back in 2006. The Wii and the Nintendo DS, our very first gaming consoles. And we didn't even knew Wii and DS were from the same maker back then, and we never owned a gaming console before either (except for a Nintendo 64 we borrowed and never knew how to use since we were so young). My DS soon got replaced by a DSi, and just a few months ago with a 3DS. And now, our Wii broke after seven years of loyal service. Even though it's being repaired, maybe it's a sign. Maybe it's time to say goodbye to our old friend and continue with it's new brother. But still, the Wii is a part of our family, and we'll never let it go. That drawer full of games, all those hours playing, alone or with friends, although our Wii may not stay alive forever, our memories will...



Poketendo commented on Four New Titles Added to Wii "Nintendo Selects...:

Already own all of those, expect for Poképark. I do like the Nintendo Selects though. I once rented Animal Crossing: Let's go to the City (or Animal Crossing: City Folk) and just had to buy it. But the original version wasn't available anymore anywhere. So got the select version without Wii Speak, and kept playing it until Animal Crossing: New Leaf. :-)



Poketendo commented on Peach Finally Confirmed For Super Smash Bros. ...:

They couldn't have made the new game without her. She's unique, funny, and a much loved character. Her new moves look great! I like the lint she uses (is it just me or... Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games?). I think she'll remain as one of my favourites.

Just one thing. I know all these character predictions get annoying, but I just want to say it. Please Sakurai, please add the Mii's.



Poketendo commented on Nintendo Opens Legal Proceedings Against HackY...:

Finally... FINALLY! It's about time it stops! I know a lot of people with a DS or a Wii, and unfortanly, most of them use R4's or hacked systems. It just makes me filled with anger. They don't understand that they're destroying the gaming market. One of them once said "Donwloading the games isn't illegal, only uploading is." Unbelievable... They often tried to convince me to hack my system, but I will stay a honest fan of Nintendo, and nothing beats the feeling of getting your new game disc or card, freshly out of the box.
I hope they will be able to stop this nonsense.



Poketendo commented on GameCube to See New Downloadable Life on Wii U:

I bought Super Smash Bros. N64 for the VC on my Wii, almost got addicted.
Then I got the Brawl disc to work anyway, got even closer to addiction.
And now I'm still waiting for Smash Bros. for 3DS, and I watch the trailers every few days, simply because I can't wait any longer.

But a lot of people proclaim Melee as the best in the series, and I'm curious whether this maybe really is the case (at least in my opinion). So Super Smash Bros. Melee would be a nice addition.



Poketendo commented on Flipnote Studio 3D World Gallery Priced and De...:

i always loved the original one. but why, WHY?! why is the online service gonna cost money!? That's ridiculous! Okay, €12 a year isn't much, but every penny you spend, is one too much. (-Scrooge McDuck). I'll still get the program anyway.



Poketendo commented on Luigi Confirmed As Part Of The Smash Bros. Ros...:

Some moves based around his own games, like the poltergust 3000, or some ridiculous moves loosely based on mario & luigi, would be fun. But is shouldn't get too complicated. Adding the Poltergust 3000 sounds fun, but it shouldn't be overused too much.



Poketendo commented on Petition Started To Make Reggie A Playable Cha...:

Reggie in Smash Bros. That sounds just hilarious and awesome. But I think his alternate costumes then should be something like Shigeru Miyamoto, Satoru Iwata and Masahiro Sakurai himself. Playing as some Nintendo masterminds and the ancestor of Smash Bros, that sounds hilarious, ridiculous, and awesome.
And here's an extra hint: Mii! Although you won't actually play as Reggie, you could use his Mii, if you recreate it. I would love to play as the directors, or Mii's or something. It seems unrealistic, but still, wynaut?



Poketendo commented on Masahiro Sakurai Rules Out Story Sequences For...:

that's too bad! I absolutely loved the Subspace Emissary. The levels, exploring, the surprising bosses, the humour, and of course, the amazing cutscenes... really dissapointing.
besides this, there's still one thing I wanna know. There's a female villager too, as well as a male wii fit trainer. What about them? Will they be playable too?



Poketendo commented on Nintendo Download: 25th July (Europe):

I've been waiting for Petit Computer for a very long time now, but now it's actually here, I have my doubts.
After reading the review, I'm not sure whether it's something for me anymore. basic programming? I've never programmed ever before! I'm gonna have to practice a lot first.



Poketendo commented on Vote: Pick Your Favourite NES Games:

I think they forgot, but I hope they will remember this soon. I wanna know the results. I want to know whether my votes won. Super Mario Bros? Double Dragon? Excitebike? Donkey Kong? Who won!? Come on Nintendolife, we wanna know!
