R_Champ commented on Atlus Serves Up Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyr...:

Ugh. I love Atlus, but most of their choices lately worry me...a lot. I'm just about ready to drop them entirely and skip the whole "Final Fantasy XIII-2" era that I strongly feel is coming...I could be wrong, but the slog of Persona 4 spinoffs, near-worthless DLC in every one of their new games, and new obsession with remakes doesn't bode too well in my mind.

At least I still have my precious Monolith and Intelligent Systems to keep me hanging onto JRPG's for a while longer.



R_Champ commented on Details Uncovered of Upcoming Update for Zelda...:


Yeah, I'd imagine that would help to have someone locally who liked to play this game T_T. I was so disappointed when they omitted online because no local friends play Wii U. That said, I did finally break down and buy this game for myself during a 40% off deal :D. And I'm very pleased to see they are still adding content!



R_Champ commented on Sakurai Explains Why Ridley Is Not A Playable ...:


Now THAT'S something I can say "AMEN" to. I don't fawn all over Sakurai like some of his more dedicated fanboys, but I still think he's doing a great job. Being THAT butthurt over one medoicre character while insulting other AMAZING series and their characters is just nuts. Sure I don't 100% agree with the roster, but I also understand that the fanbase consists of more than just me (something Melee fanboys NEVER seem to grasp).



R_Champ commented on Review: Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth (3DS):


I have a hard time being excited about spinoffs/combined worlds in general.
1) None of of it is canon.
2) It kind of cheapens the canon.
3) No matter how "deep" it is, it can never compete with an original title.

This just seems like a Persona-exclusive Kingdom Hearts with turn-based, no thanks. I'll dust off the 3DS when Project STEAM rolls out.



R_Champ commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Wii U):

I'm sure this game could very well deserve a 9/10, but if they give it that they're saying it's the same quality and Smash 3DS...which is complete BS. Maybe they're revising the 3DS score so they can give this one a 9 and not feel like they're lying :D



R_Champ commented on Twili Midna Joins The Battle In Upcoming Hyrul...:

Bah, this game fell onto my back-burner list when they decided to omit online co-op, but it keeps trying to get me back with cool characters.

Yes, Nintendo, Midna is one of my favorite Zelda characters...and you had go and include both version now T_T. If you release a Midna Amiibo I may have to hurt you...or finally buy this game :D



R_Champ commented on Weirdness: Now You Can Play Super Smash on a T...:


"Not everyone who prefers Melee is automatically an elitist." You're right. If they aren't elitists then they're wanna-be elitists: people who subscribe to a game's popularity just because there is a competitive scene for it (see Street Fighter).

Someone can like Melee most, but as a game it's a barebones glitchfest...if that's the best Smash Bros. then "FF VII is the best JRPG eva!!11...please remake it because I hate it too much to play it anymore...still the best though!!!1"



R_Champ commented on Feature: These Are The Mario Kart 8 DLC Packs ...:

Isa, Kachi, and Reyn? If only Nintendo loved me that much...Imagine a Reynmobile or Kachi riding that space donkey...too amazing T_T.

I could totally see Pit getting in though. And we might see a small Xenbolade reference. Monolith as been getting a lot more (much deserved) love lately.



R_Champ commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:


That's pretty much where I am. I have a PC for third-party games...but I almost always wait for STEAM sales for them because quality can vary hightly (with or without Metacritic's approval). Nintendo is (usually) the only company I'll full price for games anymore because of the dedicated quality...and the fact prices hardly ever drop XD. There's nothing wrong with having the best of both worlds, but I'm not dropping hundreds of dollars a year for slogs of uninspired shooters and bad JRPGs, when I can get masterpieces like Bayonetta 2, Xenoblade, and Mario 3D World with my money.

And are people REALLY fighting with Punished Boss? We all know he's a troll who's "too cool for Wii U"...just ignore him already,



R_Champ commented on Talking Point: The Majora's Mask 3D Reveal Sho...:


I thought the EXCACT same thing about two years ago. Everyone online just wouldn't shuddup about how HORRIBLE Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess were and how AMAZING Majora's Mask was.

I'm not a person to complain about games without giving them a chance (or a second chance in this case since it'd been so long since I played it). But I actually disliked MM more the second time than the first time T_T. The dungeons, backtracking, and bosses all felt terrible. OMG, you have to play one dungeon over gain in Skyward Sword? Try falling off the Snowfall Temple and having to re-do the puzzles, or better yet the Great Bay Temple which is arguably the WORST water dungeon in the series because of the stupid current mechanics and the loose, glitchy Zora controls...everyone can have their precious MM, I'll be playing STEAM, X, and Splatoon.



R_Champ commented on The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask Confirmed F...:


Awww, you gonna get flamed! (it's totally true IMO, MM has some of the worst dungeons and bosses)...but you gonna get flamed!

I'm happy for fans of the game, but I wouldn't double-dip on this one. I still like the game, but I always found it in the same category as Kingdom Hearts, FFVII, and Persona 4. Good, but not as good as the rabid fanbase makes it out to be.



R_Champ commented on Bayonetta 2 Falls From UK Charts After One Week:


That's what I was thinking. People will line up for every mediocre game on a popluar system, and completely ignore a masterpiece on a lesser-known system. Such a shame.

Think about it this way: Instead of buying a load of mediocre PS4 and Xbox One shooters at $60 a piece you could buy a Wii U and Bayonetta 2 instead :D



R_Champ commented on Region-Locking May Be a Thing of the Past Soon...:


Well, and the more people call for abolishing region locking the more they will falter. TBH, I'd never really import games...but I don't think there's anything wrong with those who want to do it as long as they pay :) Here's hoping they get rid of the silly practice.



R_Champ commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Online Braw...:


At the very least many of the glitches will be snuffed out because of all the one they're finding in the 3DS version before the Wii U's release (Day-1 patch is very likely). As much as I've hated on the 3DS version it does seem to have the one good use of being a glitch buffer :D.



R_Champ commented on Wii U-Exclusive Super Smash Bros. Modes and Ch...:

"Why do I need the Wii U version when I have the equal/superior 3DS version?!!!!1"
I think this Direct will finally put claims like this to rest. People will either remain delusional, fork out the money for a Wii U, or cry in a corner.



R_Champ commented on Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind Loo...:


Yeah, the whole show seemed like an excuse to justify a lot of things (the amount deranged fetishes in the first few episodes was staggering, and that's not even including the emo-teen pandering). After watching about 8 episodes I pretty much boiled it down to one easy saying: Cryin' n'Dyin' and I ain't buyin'.



R_Champ commented on Poll: Nintendo Minute Debate - Is Super Mario ...:

Mario World.

I ALMOST said MB 3 because as a standalone game it is more influential even with Mario World having MUCH better secrets and crisp gameplay. The reason? It introduced Yoshi as a mainstream character. Nintendo has never been the same since :)



R_Champ commented on Weirdness: Sony Fan Creates Petition In Hope O...:


Pretty much. Anyone with a brain understands and accepts every system has its good exclusives, but a handful of "dedicated" Sony fans cannot accept other systems having superior games. It's a constant thorn in their complete superiority claims. Every system has its rabid fanboys...but Sony's are..."special".



R_Champ commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Announcement Revea...:


Haha! That's a good point. I've worked EVERY birthday since I've had a job. Not to say Sakurai doesn't work hard. But it seems like because he's a good game dev then people seem to elevate every normal thing he does to godhood.

Sakurai passed that kidney stone for you...his favorite fan...

Fanboys: Squeeeeeeeeeeee!!!1



R_Champ commented on Review: Art of Balance (Wii U eShop):

Just bought this game...and it's awesome :D. I hope it gets the sales/attention it deserves. Good solo puzzle game, great party game...for $9? I wish more devs were as competent as Shin'en.



R_Champ commented on Captain Toad's Joined by Toadette in Treasure ...:


Well people question it ALL the time...and then games like Destiny, Ryse, Watchdogs, and Shadowfall all get punished by Metacritic...then they people don't question Nintendo's quality for a while :D

This game looks great though. I love that Nintendo is FINALLY showing more love by making fan-favorite characters playable. I've loved Toadette since Paper Mario TTYD and I think she's a great inclusion in this game.

Now if we could only get Daisy in a non-sports type of game...



R_Champ commented on Shantae and the Pirate's Curse Finally Shakes ...:

Cool, though I'll probably wait for the Wii U version. $20 does seem a little steep though...hopefully that at least means more content...otherwise WayForward is getting a little pretentious (who do you think you are, EA?!). I got 20+ hours out of Mighty Switch Force HD--and it looked gorgeous--and it only cost $10...



R_Champ commented on Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Begins North Am...:

"a recommended price of $39.99"

Good. As much as this game looks pretty fun, I'd have a hard time dropping $60 on it unless there was a ton of content not revealed...playable Toadette!!!!? What? Her role in Paper Mario should make her more loved than Waluigi or Bowser Jr...



R_Champ commented on Nintendo 64x64: Sin & Punishment:

This series deserves so much more love IMO. The First Sin and Punishment is great and Star Successor totally blows KI:U out of the water in terms of gameplay...well, in actual story too! Dialogue?....ehhhhh, Let's just say KI:U has to win somewhere :D



R_Champ commented on We'd Be Cheating Fans By Bringing Assassin's C...:


OMG, you're my hero. Someone needs to call out this guy more often. He's so full of BS he should call himself Liquid BS Snake...LOL, OK, maybe that's a little over the top.

On topic: We all know it's $$$. Why even bother lying anymore Ubisoft? To be honest, that's the main reason I don't like you. Not because you won't put games on Wii U, but because you keep lying about the reasons...well and compromising most of your creativity for profit...that too :)



R_Champ commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2014 - Fal...:

Wait, people are complaining about this lineup? I think it's pretty good:D

-Far superior version of Smash: Absolutely!
-Bayonetta 2, probably the best 3D Beat-em-up this gen: why wouldn't you?
-Captain Toad, a fun expansion on a great piece of M3DW: if the price is right!
-Trine re-release on Wii U: After Trine 2, this is a day-one...probably :)
-Stealth Inc 2: Looks good to me!
-Art Academy: I'm not a great artist, but I LOVE this program.

Maybe I need a lot more free time and to be in a bad relationship I need to escape from with gritty shooters to be dissatisfied with this list :D



R_Champ commented on Exclusive: Masahiro Sakurai on Planned Acciden...:


What, really? Japan has terrible taste then. Dark Pit IS a palate swap of Pit...even in the PLOT of his ACTUAL game...making him a separate character was a huge waste of roster space. It's like saying: clone characters in my mediocre game (KI:U) are more deserving than awesome original characters from other devs games!!!1

It makes me sick to say this, but I might actually take Waluigi or Geno over Dark Pit...and I hate both those characters. Heck, I'd even take Goku post his defeat by Superman (the shoe) over Dark Pit.



R_Champ commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate's Questionable Expo ...:

Not a surprise, sadly. And it won't be a surprise when Capcom never sees another penny from my wallet either...I'm tired of companies/internet trolls demanding I buy inferior games just because they are on popular consoles/handhelds.



R_Champ commented on Modder Shows How to Play the 3DS With a GameCu...:

Just release the Wii U version already...physically modding a game to get it to play right...that's just wrong.

...and RIP Ice Climbers...I will exact your cold vengeance on all those 3DS-friendly clones until I'm banned for attacking the same character too many times in a row!



R_Champ commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS (3DS):

"[...]this isn't a quick release intended to tide over players until the Wii U version comes along"

BS: Shoddy online (again), horrible controls, lack of customizations (in a Smash game? Ridiculous) and clones to make up for a lack of cut original characters because of lacking 3DS hardware...well then, maybe you're right. This won't tide me over until Smash Wii U...because I won't be getting it at all ;)

I understand people have different tastes than me (and will take a lot more abuse because they cave under 3DS popular opinion), but the 3DS controls just aren't for a fighting game of any kind. A fighting game with bad controls? You'd have to at least give that an 8/10 at most.



R_Champ commented on Nintendo Download: 25th September (North America):


Considering the past few years have been:
3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,coughWiiUcough,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS,3DS...3DS...I think it's plenty legit, especially considering all the Wii U counterparts of 3DS games are all immensely better.



R_Champ commented on Rumour: Secret Chant Within Super Smash Bros. ...:


Well, I was never a huge Ice Climbers fan, but I'm mad for two reasons:

-Original characters should ALWAYS take priority over clones and we have, what? 6+ clones already? That's just silly.

-They were cut because of the 3DS version. An amazing series has be cut back because of an attempt to simply milk a fanbase. Understandable, but sad, really sad T_T Now I'm MAD!!!!1 Lol.



R_Champ commented on Mother 4 Is On The Way, But It's Not Being Mad...:


Yeah, I agree with that. Just say something like: "a spiritual successor/homage to the Mother series!" That's actually an admirable and more meaningful approach. Saying it's THE Mother 4 is a somewhat pretentious way of saying they know better than the creators. And also a way to bait a C&D order from the original dev. Anyone remember Chrono Trigger Crimson Tides? SE does. It also remembers the C&D it sent...



R_Champ commented on Developer Profile: Masahiro Sakurai:


Yeah, was thinking the same thing. He's a great developer, but very human. Just look at Kid Icarus: Uprising and Kirby. Both are just OK IMO. Smash Bros. is his one major achievement and everything else just seems to fly along on its coat tails or on the wings of rabid fans. Again, a great developer though it's just I can't agree he's a "God" when the Smash Bros 3DS demo was sooooo awful. Just awful.

Makes me wonder why big studios in the west never have a single name attached to them. I'd love to know who to thank for Baldur's Gate 2, Knights of the Old Republic, and the first two Mass Effects!



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.
