Samuel-Flutter commented on Mario History: Super Mario 64 DS - 2004:

Ah yes. The first game I played on the DS. I always did hate that thumb strap. I hear this plays much better on the 3DS with the circle pad. I did manage to beat it though, but for the sake of nostalgia I did prefer the original. I do hope this is ported to the virtual console, since my brother has the copy I played.

Samuel-Flutter commented on Review: Devil's Third (Wii U):

@Lord First of all, Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer is selling fairly well in Japan, so I don't know if that is a terrible game or not. Secondly It kinda seems to me that the games you listed that were terrible are just games in genres you don't enjoy. That doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad game. Except that amiibo tap. It's not even a real game, just glorified demos.

@Takerkaneanite6 I would definitely recommend it. Some would argue that it's the worst 3D Mario, but being the worst 3D Mario is still an amazing game. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The levels are more open and spread out like Mario 64, which I preferred over the linear style of Mario Galaxy. It was probably my favorite GameCube game.

I can remember fighting my way to Giga Bowser only to get pummeled. I eventually got it and was so proud. Later I was showing my friend. I got to the end without losing a life and let him fight against Bowser. He had no idea about Giga Bowser. After beating regular Bowser, when Giga showed up he was so terrified he ran to the left to commit suicide. But Giga Bowser beat him to it with a Bowser bomb off the side. I don't know if I was angry that my friend won so easy, or laughing hysterically at what had transpired. It was good times.

Also same friend lost his save data, so I unlocked all the characters for him in one night. Happened again the next week, and that's when I realized I could've just copied my save data.

@Yellowkoopa I came in to ask that same question.

I enjoyed the story mode to the handheld Mario Sports games. It made the solo nature of the experience better. Plus you were able to transfer yrou characters over and play with them on the 64 if memory serves.

Samuel-Flutter commented on Mario History: Super Mario World - 1991:

This was the very first game I played. It was Mario World and A Link to the Past that made me Nintendo fans. That being said, I can't help but notice the first screenshot isn't from Super Mario World. Goombas weren't in the game, just Galoombas.

Samuel-Flutter commented on Mario Memories: Super Mario RPG Opens Up The W...:

This was the very first RPG I played, and it hooked me on the genre. I was attracted to it by the 3D rendered sprites, my little mind couldn't handle the awesome that was "3d Mario". So when I saw this in Toys R Us, I saved until I could buy it. I'm just glad I stuck with it, because it opened me up to a brand new genre.

In retrospect though, most RPGs fail to hook me the same way. I believe it has to do with timed hits. It made the battles more interactive. Which is generally why I enjoy RPGs with little twists to battle mechanics. Legend of Dragoon, Paper Mario, Tales of Symphonia, Mario and Luigi, etc... Not to say traditional isn't bad, after all Chrono Trigger is my favorite game of all time. But I suppose the ATB gauge works in that sense.

@rjejr Hah. No but I did have a teammate that did that, which caused us to lose in overtime.

I grabbed it after it exploded, and my teammates all died. So I stood in the middle just shooting people. Didn't know I was suppose to go anywhere.

And when I did make it to the enemies base, I had no idea where I was suppose to put it.

Samuel-Flutter commented on Video: Drench Yourself in Splatoon's New Rainm...:

Rainmaker is my favorite ranked mode by far. I'm not going to lie, I had forgotten the update was happening and when the squid sisters announced the mode while playing I immediately tried it out. I was the first to get the rainmaker, and had no idea what I was suppose to do. So sorry if anyone was one my team.

@crzysortagamer Well Metroid Federation Force will answer that need for a 3DS online Metroid Shooter. As for well populated, that remains to be seen.

@FX29 The gameplay of Other M really sold the game to me. Metroid is just as much platforming as it is Shooter. While I liked the Prime games, I thought Other M had better gameplay. If the used a 3rd person control set up similar to Splatoon, I believe they could make an amazing 3rd Person 3D Metroid.

Samuel-Flutter commented on Talking Point: Wii U Gamers Have Been Treated ...:

@Vineleaf That's why I'm hoping the NX will be easier to port to. It lowers the amount of money publishers need to spend to release their games on the system. And once the projected profit from sales overshadow the cost of porting games, we'll see third parties start coming back to Nintendo.

@errantrazor Well isn't the point of a talking point intended to get people talking? A food for thought, so to speak?

I have bought well over 20 retail games for the Wii U, and consider it a great console, but I really wish there was more third party support. I have to agree with @Peach64 if the console was easier to port to, we might have been seeing some more support today.

Samuel-Flutter commented on Negative Reception For Devil's Third Is Due To...:

@BLPs I enjoyed Sonic Lost World. It definitely has some good points, but there are some definite flaws. Probably the only thing that got me was the bonus levels for getting all the emeralds. They were more proof of concept levels than anything. Like the one where the levels timer had to run down to win. It just made no sense.

Hey @Damo don't let them get to you man. You're in the right, but don't go starting a flame war.

I'm still amazed by the dead body floating in the air. Up until that segment it was looking decent. I don't use just reviews to determine wether or not I buy a game, but after hearing what everyone is saying, I might wait a bit before picking it up.

Sad to see Itagaki blame shoddy programming on player's skills though.
