R_Champ commented on Video: This Unlockable Character in Hyrule War...:


Yeah, it is a steap price, espcially considering the Cucco is DLC, so you have to pay more! It's the same reason I took so long to buy. Keep an eye out for deals (like I did), I took advantage of buy-one-get-one-half-off sale, so after buying Smash I got this game for $30! Which was totally worth it...$60 without DLC is a bit high...I did have to eat my words though, the game in general is much better than I thought...except the DLC grinding...ugh.



R_Champ commented on Dot Arcade is an Intriguing Vintage Title Head...:

I kinda understand where Cosats is coming from, some games rely too much on nostalgia and not enough on their own merits...but at the same time nostalgia is often a big part of gaming (the only way to explain why FF is still selling well T_T).

I agree with sinalefa though, would like to see a video of this though...they're obviously trying to lure me in with a cute anime girl...but I won't be won over so easily...I hope



R_Champ commented on Masahiro Sakurai Praises the Achievements of S...:


Wow, talk about console butthurt. Steam is far from perfect, but it is by FAR the best digital download service for games. And that's not even defending it that's just EVERY other company does a horrible job with digital games interfaces that Steam just has to do an OK job it's automatically better.

-No stupid monthly fee (gawd I hate these stupid fan-defended, nickel-n'diming schemes)
-Amazing sales($4 Tomb Raider vs. $45-60 on PSN....O....K)
-Even if 98% are garbage, the 2% is still around 50x more good games
-Like unrandomsam said: DRM is easy to break on Steam so the "renting" claim is BS.

I'm a hardcore Nintendo fan, but ignoring what's good is stupid. Sakurai is wise in his choice. Nintnedo SHOULD take notes from Steam. Especially the part about staying free...montly fees are so stupid.



R_Champ commented on Video: Atlus Shows Off the Dancer in New Etria...:

TBH, I haven't been interested much in Atlus lately as much as I love them (too many friggin' spinoffs and ports selling for more than typical 3ds retail). But I'm willing to be a hypocrite for this kind of spinoff. It's less character fan service (PersonaQ, P4G) and more gameplay fanservice: mixing Shirin with EO has a potential for genius.



R_Champ commented on Dead Or Alive Producer Feels That A Cultural D...:


Haha, I don't know that we're EXACTLY on the same page, but I like where you're going with that.

I like Fan-servicy games sometimes (I just bought Neptunia on Steam last night :3). I also agree with eliminating the gender pay gap (equal work, equal pay. Period).

Come at at me, PC Hipsters!



R_Champ commented on Famitsu Article Reportedly Inks Out More Splat...:

I just want friend chat. I REALLY don't care about randoms. If I'm playing with randoms, I'm not playing competetively. Plus my experience with randoms usually falls into two categories: Screaming chidren, and butt-hurt elitlist man-children. And I can't stand children...of all ages :D

Lack of friend chat would be silly though. I actually used it in Monster Hunter with friends and it was great. It made hunting more fun and more productive.



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


I've gotten through it, and you're probably not missing out on a lot if you weren't enjoying it (especially if you didn't get to the Great Bay Temple...shudder). The atmosphere and side quests are great, but the dungeons and bosses were some of the worst in the series IMO. I don't think the original deserves a 10/10 (even objectively) and a remake getting a 10/10? Break out the Pabst Blue Ribbon. The hipsters have take over Nintendolife! :D



R_Champ commented on Hironobu Sakaguchi to be Honoured with Lifetim...:


Yeah, poor Final Fantasy T_T. Luckily a lot of games he made since have been great (Last Story and Lost Odyssey are some of the few recent JRPGs I've enjoyed...but without the name recognition they won't be going anywhere anytime soon).

I think FFVII has more nostalgia for me, but VI is something special...there isn't another game quite like it IMO. It's a perfect mix of pseudo steampunk/fantasy with pixel graphics and midi music that have aged really well. It's like the classic literature of videogames :).



R_Champ commented on Club Nintendo Goes Rewards Crazy With Final Up...:


LOL, I won't confirm or deny what game it was (no need to start any fights), but the game I played did have a lot of great elements...but a terrible, boring battle system everyone seems to praise like crazy. Not to say I dislike all turn-based RPGs if they have cool customizations like Final Fantasy VI-VIII.

Thanks for the recommendation, at 200 coins it should at least be worth a shot. Top 5 you say? Don't get my hopes up too high though :D (like with the othe unmentioned game...)


Haha, I have a hard time refusing a recommendation from someone with an avatar that cute! I saw some gameplay videos of GS, It's definitely at the top of my list (especially with 1000 coins in the bank).



R_Champ commented on Ubisoft Launches Yet Another Massive eShop Sal...:


Huh, is that what they actually said? Shame...considering Nintendo + PC is all I'll ever do again. I'm not ENTIRELY ready to completely write off Ubisoft, but they're obviously not doing anything support me.

-Delayed games (Rayman)
-Crappy Ports (AC: Unity PC, Watch Dogs Wii U, etc.)
-Refusal to make sequels to promising series (ZombiU)

If you own a PS4 or Xbox One and still aren't tired of Assasin's Creed you're probably in heaven though :D



R_Champ commented on Nintendo to Present a Xenoblade Chronicles X S...:


Noooooooooo...I mean, I loved the British voices in Xenoblade, but the ship is called Neo Los Angeles....British voices would just be wrong T_T...unless they have a sub-plot where you learn Great Britain conquered the USA :D...How did they conquer the US? Jaffer Cakes. LOL.



R_Champ commented on Club Nintendo Goes Rewards Crazy With Final Up...:

You'd be crazy to not get W101 for 600 coins--amazing deal. I already have it though, so I'll have to get something else. Golden Sun, maybe? I've heard it was good...but the last retro JRPG I played was...underwhelming :(...and it was one that has a rabid cult following O_O



R_Champ commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

As much as I hate to rush to the defense of a big corporation (pfftt, like they need more money), these youtube stars are just as greedy...except the only thing they contributed to these games are girly screams, terrible video editing, and a ton of stupid memes. I'm afraid I'm going to side with the original artist on this one. Playing the entire unaltered game and getting 100% of the profit? Vanilla Ice, anyone? (dun, dun, dun, d-d-dun.....sssss!)



R_Champ commented on Nintendo Download: 29th January (North America):

To those who are curious the file size on E-shop is advertised as 8025.9 MB (~8GB) for the trilogy.

But it's a no-brainer for me. I've been meaning to get the entire trilogy for a while and this price is unbeatable. It's like one of the good steam sales...but on Nintendo O_O



R_Champ commented on More Details Emerge on Xenoblade Chronicles X ...:


Monolith is one of the FEW devs who actually makes their games better with each game in a series based on criticism and fan response (one of the reasons they're one of my favorites). Just look at how they responsed and improved the Xenosaga series between episode II and III. And it's like they listened and fixed EVERYTHING wrong (besides anime tropes) with Baiten Kaitos in the next game.



R_Champ commented on Review: Breath of Fire (Wii U eShop / Super Ni...:

I actually think scores like this pretty fair considering modern standards, even if I still enjoy games like this. I think the only thing that's unfair is a game like this gets its battle system criticized to pieces and a game like Earthbound--with an equally dull combat system--gets it mostly overlooked (or even praised). Then again, the BoF fanbase is like a small second-hand store, whereas the Earthbound fanbase is like fantatic cult that'll gut you if you're even honest about its shortcomings :P.



R_Champ commented on Atlus Shows Off Terrific Launch Edition Extras...:


Hahaha, I know, right? I've been turned off to Atlus games for a while now because of the stupid price points for spin-off games. I friggin' loved Shirin (Wii) and really liked Etrian Odyssey IV so if they ACTUALLY charge $40 this time I'll probably get it.



R_Champ commented on Rumour: Cave Story 2 Teased at PAX South and C...:


I think their whiny-ness has some merit though. A lot of amazing series were marred solely by tacking on crappy games. That said, I'd be willing to take the risk with Cave Story. It's one of my top 5 indie games (easy), and I didn't think the Wii Ware and 3DS re-releases were bad either.



R_Champ commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X Will Feature An "Outsta...:

I hope they have a good English voice cast, and in this case I hope they're American (not British). Don't get me wrong, I liked the British voice actors for the original Xenoblade, but this is based in Neo Los me, the characters speaking Japanese or with a British accent would just be a big atmosphere breaker to me. Especially since I live near LA...and well, let's just say they don't talk ANYTHING like a typical British person :D



R_Champ commented on Capcom's Ryozo Tsujimoto Feels Monster Hunter ...:

Gaining traction in the West? So like every one of your series that gets popluar on a Nintendo console you'll immediately port it to Sony and act like the Nintendo fans who made it popular never existed by giving them no further sequels? LOL, OK. Friggin' Capcom...



R_Champ commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

Some very good choices here. And I'll admit, I liked Other M (so sue me!). Sure, they made a lot of poor choices with it, but the 2D/3D blend was a genious idea that should be expanded on. TBH, I'll be disappointed if they go back entirely to first person or third person for the next Metroid.

Some niche games like Fragile and Rune Factory: Frontier would be great as well :) (I'm glad they're already bringing amazing games like Pandora's Tower and Sin & Punishment).



R_Champ commented on Poll: Nintendo's Year of Adventure on Wii U an...:


Yeah, I'm kind of the same. Zelda is probably my favorite long-running series, but Xenoblade offers more for me (at least in hype), because there are fewer games in the series which means more suprises at the same great quality :).

And I can't believe people are voting for MM 3D and Xenoblade 3D over Zelda Wii U and Xenoblade Chronicles X. Not because of quality (we don't know that yet), but because they're both ports/remakes. Sigh It's a sad day in gaming when people would rather play the same thing over and over than somthing new...well and it could just be the 3DS+PS4 people who are in denial...



R_Champ commented on New Exploit Makes The 3DS Region Free Without ...:


As long as poeple pay for the games, why does Nintendo care? I don't really import games, but I have Japanese friends I'd love to play MH and Smash Bros with, but I can't...even though I'd be a paying customer (I hate Piracy). Nintendo makes a lot of mistakes with their systems, but this is the most randomly punishing to loyal customers. Just get rid of it already, Nintendo T_T.



R_Champ commented on A New Fire Emblem Game Is Marching Towards The...:

Siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh I'm mean, I'm excited. I love FE no matter what platform it's on, but I hate how much Intelligent systems is avoiding consoles lately. Because no matter how much I loved FE:A, there's no way it would NOT be better in HD, with better sounds, bigger screen, and better control options. I know, I shouldn't complain, I'll take what I can get, but I wish Intelligent systems would have the juevos to release a game on Wii U (like Monolith). Heck, they aren't even making a Paper Mario Wii U. At the very least they could do that (after the meh handheld interation).



R_Champ commented on Review: Fire Emblem (Wii U eShop / Game Boy Ad...:

I'm liking this game a LOT more than I thought I would. I mean, I love Fire Emblem, but most handheld iterations of series seem to fall short for me (I LOVED Awakening, but Waifu breeding and level grinding don't match up to good level design, pacing, and actual limited-exp tactics).

I don't see this game dethroning Path of Radiance as my current favorite (the map design and deepr themes in that game are way too good IMO...even if Ike is totally broken :P), but I definitely missed out playing it years ago. Glad they released it on Wii U.



R_Champ commented on From Soy Sauce Hopes to Bring Touhou Super Sm...:


Oh, you'd better hide for smack-talking melee, LOL. Not from me, I agree with you, but melee fans are as bad as Earthbound, Darksouls, Monster Hunter, Majora's Mask fans...scary T_T. Take my flameshield for protection.

That said, this is a bit strange...even for Touhou (from what I know of it).



R_Champ commented on Nintendo Invests in New Lobbying Firm to Tackl...:


I think that's one of the the two things Nintendo needs to address while tackling this. Not releasing popular games makes people want to pirate release more amazing games on VC! (Duh).

And secondly, they need to lift the region lock. Who cares if people are BUYING games from other regions...they're still paying fair and sqaure, so what's the big deal? Doing that would take the teeth out of the "b-but Homebrew!!!1" argument and get more fans behind the anti-piracty movement.



R_Champ commented on Nintendo Highlights Great Games in a Rather Pr...:


People should be using that coin to save up for a decent PC. Seriously, it's funny to watch dedicated Sony and MS go at each others throats about "power" when my budget PC destroys both of them...without having to pay to play online, and getting access to STEAM sales, and having better control options, and every good indie game and then some, and...well you get the picture. Nintendo exclusives+PC near-universal support...why are PS4 and Xbox One even a thing?
