R_Champ commented on Review: Bayonetta (Wii U eShop):


Huh, was thinking the same thing. I wasn't really a fan of the story (not bad, just not that captivating), but I really liked the characters and the gameplay is unrivaled in the 3D beat-em up genre. I wouldn't say 8/10 is wrong (GAWD I hated the missile sequence), but I would easily bump this up to a 9/10 from my personal perspective. Games like God of War III, DMC Reboot, etc. just don't even compare.



R_Champ commented on Sakurai Explains Reasoning Behind Removal Of I...:


The 3DS is fine. Smash Bros. 3DS has always been a bad idea IMO though. Everyone who drools over the 3DS was so adamant that the 3DS version wasn't watering down the experience (and some even claimed it would be superior! LOL), but now we have proof that's EXACTLY what happened. Ice Climbers get cut for Dark Pit, Dr. Mario, and Falco...not to mention how many other features Sakurai probably won't mention (plus 3DS breaking apart because they aren't made for it). 3DS fans screamed and cried because they didn't want to buy a Wii U for Smash Bros...and this is what we get, both games get watered down.



R_Champ commented on Weirdness: Playing as Peach Online is Triggeri...:


I guess she's too hot for 3DS :D

My personal favorite character, but I'm not too worried because this seems like a big enough problem they'll actually get it fixed quickly. Small problems/exploits always go unfixed, so in a way it's better it's a larger problem :D



R_Champ commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Expo Banner Raises Q...:


Exactly, I hate it when people are butt hurt it might not be a 3DS exclusives...even though it'd be way better on Wii U...Honestly, I have no interest in the 3DS version anyway because it feels like such a downgrade in controls and graphics. I don't care how many people own the 3DS (and how "amazing" it is), an inferior game is an inferior game. If it does come to Wii U my faith in Capcom may be SLIGHTLY restored...enough to buy this one game from them, at least.



R_Champ commented on Review: Mega Man X3 (Wii U eShop / Super Ninte...:

How dare you! Tell the Everyone has different tastes but I agree that of the three X games on SNES X3 was the worst. Playable (yet utterly useless) Zero to appease the rabid Zero fanboys was a good sign right from the start that the game didn't have the right focus in mind.



R_Champ commented on You Can Dress Up As Fox McCloud Thanks To Bayo...:


The Hyrule Warriors Direct was better than the Bayo Direct? Were we watching the same thing? The HW Direct was, IMO, their worst Direct in a long time. It didn't reveal ANYTHING new besides, what? Bombchus? LOL. Playiable Rodin for online co-op op alone beats the entire Hyrule Warriors Direct.



R_Champ commented on Super Street Fighter II: Turbo Revival Is Drag...:

Capcom: No RE Revelations 2 for Wii U!!!!1
Fans: How about Mega Man Legends 3?
Capcom: No!
Fans: How about port of Monster Hunter 4 to Wii U? That should be pretty easy, right?
Capcom: NooooooooooooooooooooOOOO!1!1@
Fans: Ummmm, what can we have then?
Capcom: How does the worst version of SF II sound?
Now Ex Fans: ...



R_Champ commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Confirmed By Capco...:


Hehehe, that's a good analogy. I feel either Capcom will eventually fail...or they'll just end up a laughingstock with a cheap rug for a wig keeping them afloat (Monster Hunter) like Trump.

And it's funny. They made RE 6 Xbox/PS3 only, and people hated it. They made RE Revelations exclusive to 3DS and people loved it. So what do they do? They move the one that's successful on a Nintendo system to the other two without any nod to the original...Capcom, YOU'RE FIRED!



R_Champ commented on Capcom Is Suing Koei Tecmo For Patent Infringe...:


Yeah, I'm losing faith in Capcom too. Loved the Mega man, Street Fighter, Monster Hunter, Breath of Fire, and Resident Evil series...not to mention the slew of amazing games they released on SNES. Even licensed games like Mickey's Magical Quest were good! They've driven themselves into the ground trying to mimic EA, Activision, and the like, and now they're trying to take a piece from everyone else to stay afloat--even fans with their shady DLC practices. Such a shame. Capcom's downfall is as sad as Bioware IMO, and I fricken' loved Bioware!



R_Champ commented on Hyrule Warriors Update to Bring New Game Mode:


I don't think you can put it any better. Not only is there already a lot of games on the market similar to this WITH online co-op...there's an amazing, EXCLUSIVE one coming out less than a month later that HAS online co-op already announced: Bayonetta 2. $60 for two amazing games in one package with online co-op or $60 for a bare bones DW game with a Zelda motif and no online co-op...I love Zelda but when you compare them like that I can't even justifying both.



R_Champ commented on Somebody At Ubisoft Really Doesn't Like Mario ...:


They try so hard, lol. I think it's fine to think it's "controversial" or "breaks the magic", but putting it on Twitter is like trying to make people angry. Maybe Ubisoft is taking lessons from Phil Fish on how to make fans dislike you even if you're a good game maker :D



R_Champ commented on Feature: HD Remasters That Would Be Perfect fo...:


I agree, I hate the idea and practice of constant HD remakes, ports, etc. And I hate how much praise these rehashes get when amazing new games get overlooked (I bet you right now Windwaker HD made a lot more money than Wonderful 101...which is so stupid IMO) At the same time I wouldn't mind having a reasonably price Metroid Prime Trilogy, or an F-Zero GX with online...BUUUUUT, I'd also rather see a new entry into either of these series rather than ANOTHER HD remaster.



R_Champ commented on Nintendo's At It Again With Another Majora's M...:

TBH I don't even like MM that much (definitely wouldn't double dip)...but I just want them to re-release it so people will shut up about it already XD. The whole remaster/port/remake craze lately is driving me up the wall. If the only way to shut people up is to re-release EVERY good game in existence until we run be it, let's get it over with like tearing off a band-aid!



R_Champ commented on Feature: Hyrule Warriors - Everything We Know ...:


Haha! I was thinking the exact same thing! The whole Direct seemed like an excuse/distraction as to why they decided to omit certain features (like online). Hype train definitely derailed for me as well. Still looks pretty cool, but with Bayonetta less than a month after this AND it has better mechanics/online co-op...sorry Hyrule Warriors, you might not make the cut...unless you count cutting the which point you're doing amazing :P



R_Champ commented on Poll: Is Online Co-Op a Major Miss in Hyrule W...:


I'm not butthurt...I'm just not going to buy a 7/10 game that doesn't have a enough features (including online) to warrant a $60+ purchase. Amazing games like W101, Mario 3D World, etc. make the cut without online..a DW spinoff just misses the mark IMO.



R_Champ commented on You Won't Be Able To Cross Swords Online In Hy...:

This could be a deal breaker for me. I was getting excited to try out this game and jump into a new genre...but without online co-op to add to the variety and replay I don't think it's really worth the $60 admission price. Usually, Nintendo games are worth $60 with only local co-op...but his is a TK game with Nintendo characters...there's a HUGE difference. Sadly, probably a bargain-bin purchase now...which is sad because I wanted to support this game at full price.



R_Champ commented on Official Hyrule Warriors Screens Show Ocarina ...:

If this game sells well enough I can assure you we'll be be seeing more games of this type in the future. These kind of 'love-letter' games have a lot of potential for fans who are nostalgia junkies, but more than ready to try a new genre of game. Personally, I've never played a DW game...but with this, now I want to :)



R_Champ commented on Sakurai Explains Why Chrom Didn't Make It Into...:


I'd totally buy that. Chrom not having distinct characteristics is BS...Lucina is just a gender swap of Marth and all of the sudden she's hyper distinct? LOL, no. Not to say I dislike her, she's a great addition, but Sakurai's reasoning reminds me of when the MvC 3 devs were saying the Human Torch would take up too much processing with his flames and then we got Dark Phoenix :p



R_Champ commented on Sony: PS4 Is "Welcoming Back" Wii Owners Who S...:

I prefer backwards compatibility over remasters/ports. Sure, remasters look better, but they're only based on what's popular/bloated so the selection of PS3 games you can play on PS4 is REALLY limited.

I couldn't imagine not being able to play niche games like Xenoblade, Pandora's Tower, or Sin and Punishment on my Wii U...which would NEVER get ported/remastered.



R_Champ commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Defends Wii U Prospects as Sh...:


Oh gawd, 001-C. My brother wouldn't touch the Wonderful 101 because he doesn't like the anime motif or beat-em-up gameplay, but he watched me play that boss fight and was like O_O. I understand certain games aren't for everybody, but I agree it's a shame certain ones are neglected or bashed because they decide to do something different without worrying about bloated budgets or review scores.



R_Champ commented on Reaction: Our Thoughts on Nintendo's Big Day a...:


LOL, I wouldn't be THAT mean about it, but I've been frustrated with everyone being content with only the 3DS getting any love for a long time and as soon as Wii U starts to get AMAZING games they complain because they don't own one (what is this? Neogaf?)...start collecting those cans because Bayo 2, Xenoblade Chronicles X, and Splatoon (along with others) are Wii U exclusive ;)



R_Champ commented on E3 2014: No DLC In The Works For Content-Rich ...:


Welllllll, their sales and DLC sales are great, so it seems their fans are getting what they want (even if it is a scam). That said, I'll never go back to EA, Activision, etc. while they wholeheartedly support these models.

Some DLC is one thing, but when I walked away with dropping $70 for Mass Effect 3 (because of tax and "amazing" day-1 DLC) I was really upset. Imagine how upset I was after see the atrocious ending...thank you Kamiya for giving me the game right away, not holding the Prothean hostage...FREE the Prothean, FREE Bioware! LOL.



R_Champ commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Innovative E3 Approa...:


I totally agree. The Treehouse follow-up was a great idea to the amusing and polished, yet limited, digital event. Games like Xenoblade Chronicles X only had a mediocre trailer, but the the Treehouse segment on the game was amazing! And I wouldn't be surprised to see Sony and Microsoft follow suit in the coming E3. Let's just hope it isn't as poor a copy as PS Move ;)



R_Champ commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Patch The Controversial ...:

I'm kinda old-fashion in that I won't use in unintended trick especially if other people don't know about it. I didn't wave dash in melee (even though that at least took more skill than this). Heck, I won't even use intended tricks like Marth's over-prioritized, over-spammed N-air in Brawl. Honestly, I even make things hard for myself so I actually feel accomplished (I'm usually the ONLY one in MK8 lobbies using the Wii Wheel).

That said, I understand not everyone is the same, but to those people who want to keep it: Why? If it's gone, then things will just be more even again. Are people just mad that if it gets patched out all of a sudden people won't have a secret "pro" advantage of hophophop anymore? I won't die if they doesn't take it out...but they should IMO in order to keep a better balance. I swear sometimes it feels like people demand balance, but then abuse every possible exploit in attempt to destroy that balance then cry when people want to take the imbalance out.



R_Champ commented on Weirdness: Luigi's Mario Kart 8 'Death Stare' ...:


Not usual like Colbert and Stewart in that it's not funny, not interesting, and over 90% fabricated ("people say") BS...every news show has an agenda and makes exaggerations/mistakes; Fox News has a vendetta against intelligence. This Luigi story is the best thing I've seen out of them since their inception.



R_Champ commented on Mario Kart Month: The Developers Who Tried To ...:


Ouch...harsh, lol. I can't say I'm a huge Crash fan, but I don't hate him that much. Jet Moto rocked though. The grapple beam was just too cool! Forget people who tried to copy Mario Kart, let's celebrate those who did something original like Jet Moto.

In terms of Mario Kart look alikes, I find that it just can't be beat on a base level. Sure games like Diddy Kong Racing have a better campaign. Or games like Wipeout might have better physics, but you just can't beat the pure multiplayer fun provided by the Mario Kart series IMO.



R_Champ commented on Ike Joins the Battle in Super Smash Bros. for ...:


That makes sense. One of the main complaints about Playstation All Stars was it was "guys with swords". I would love to see Chrom in as well (though I'll admit I was WAY more excited for Ike), but I think an alternate skin would be fine for Chrom and a magic user, archer, etc. would be better new rep.



R_Champ commented on Here Are Plenty of Lovely Hyrule Warriors Scre...:


I'm the same way. I had little or no interest in this game besides the Zelda motif (which I figured was an obvious ploy) but the more I see of it the more interested I become.

Impa looks amazing, and I'm surprised how excited I am to finally have her as a playable character.



R_Champ commented on Nintendo Overcomes Patent Dispute With Non-Pra...:

Technology patents are so strange. It seems like if something is even similar they're going to try and fool some 75 year old judge who owned a black and white TV as a kid to get some company to fork over millions. Phillips isn't even using the tech for the same purpose so even if Nintendo "stole" it they obviously extensively contributed their own manpower and tech to it. The step from medical equipment to game controller is bigger than you might think.

Sony didn't get sued for PS Move, VHS, or Blu-Ray which were ALL ripped directly from similar tech. (Well someone tried to sue them for Blu-Ray).



R_Champ commented on Wii U Reportedly Uses Less Energy to Run Than ...:


Awesome :D This just made my day. And holy crap at PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One! Everyone is saying "Wii U has lower processing so lower power usage hurr, hurr." But the processing power isn't THAT different to be using more than double the energry. Heck, even 360 and PS3 used more than Wii U!



R_Champ commented on Review: Mario Kart 8 (Wii U):

I don't think there is anything wrong with this review. If Battle Mode and Game Pad usage are poor, then 9/10 seems legit. My only qualm is a good (not great IMO) game like Rayman Legends gets the same score. To each their own though, and Battle Mode has never really been my favorite anyway so a personal 10/10 is a possibility with that tasty-looking tournament mode.



R_Champ commented on Review: Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails (Wi...:


I'm with you :). I understand this may not be the best game out there: maybe the reviewer has a lot of good points. But I'm still interested enough to decide for myself. If I didn't play every game under an 8/10 score then half of my favorite-games-ever list wouldn't exist!



R_Champ commented on Ultra Rare Ocarina of Time Prototype Reportedl...:

Same, I'm even somewhat of a classic game collector but this has no real value: you can't authenticate it with a serial number, it's effects could EASILY be duplicated by a hacker, and there is zero aesthetic quality to it (no gold case, no stupid see-through cartridge, not even stick art). And all this for 100 g's? You'd be stupid to buy it IMO.
