Scarlet commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

As upsetting as it is to me, I feel that they've actually gone and killed the entire Metroid franchise. It's unsurprising that the series is doing poorly if they hold off from making games for almost a decade at a time, and when they finally come out, they're sub-par. We'll see. I look forward to seeing reviews of Federation Force.



Scarlet commented on Shovel Knight Digs His Way Into Bloodstained A...:

@Pixel-Perfect They can't edit the pledge tiers once they've been submitted (but they can add more). I was also curious about this. In the Wii U update, they tell us that we can back at any tier $28+ and when the survey comes through about which system we want it on, Wii U will be an option.



Scarlet commented on Rumour: Customisable Mii Fighter amiibo Could ...:

Looks 100% real, although there is a chance it could be fake. All amiibo prototypes look exactly like this. I think it's just a matter of time before we find out if it's going to be customisable or not (going to say not. Nintendo's not ready for the demand this will cause, although E3 might prove me wrong).



Scarlet commented on Nintendo Download: 21st May (Europe):

Kirby's Epic Yarn is amazing and I'm glad it's found a home on Wii U. Never played Paper Mario... tempting, but it's not in a sale, so no. Only thing this week for me is the free HOME theme.



Scarlet commented on Yooka-Laylee Double-Jumps Through Final Kickst...:

Forgive my cynicism, but there is nothing anywhere to say this game will actually be any good. Rare hasn't made an outstanding game in years, and while I realise the game's not being developed by Rare, it may as well be...



Scarlet commented on Tales of More Super Smash Bros. amiibo Pre-Ord...:

ShopTo's price are disgusting. They've raised their prices to £19.85. Almost £20 for a piece of plastic worth £10. Double MSRP is basically scalping. I've had more than a few problems with them this year, and this is absolutely the last straw. I'm never going to give them my money again.

Edit: And also, what kid is going to have £20 just hanging around? Because let's face it, these are children's toys. When I was a child, I'd be buying toys mostly in the £5 to £10 range if my parents would let me. A £20 purchase would be for something special, like a birthday. I really don't understand how ShopTo can charge this much and still sleep soundly at night.



Scarlet commented on Shantae Premium 3DS HOME Themes are Hitting No...:

I do love Wayforward and Shantae. They make some great games with cool mechanics and beautiful sprite art, but at the same time, they do like to chuck massive, gooshy breasts on every character (even in Contra 4). It's unnecessary.



Scarlet commented on Weirdness: Fan Creates Custom amiibo of Sonic ...:

This craze is weird. Sticking any old toy on an amiibo base does not make it an amiibo. Aside from the effort put into making the card backing legitimate, this type of custom is lazy and boring. And ultimately, the creator had to destroy an amiibo in order to get the base.



Scarlet commented on Reaction: Satoru Iwata Holds Off on Major Anno...:

@DESS-M-8 You may have missed out, depending on where you live. Pre-orders in Europe went up sometime between a few days and a week after the Nintendo Direct announcement. I think GAME in the UK had them up immediately after it ended. Maybe try asking around /r/amiibo on reddit.



Scarlet commented on Nintendo Fan Creates a Mewtwo 'amiibo' That Wo...:

FYI, this is not an old Mewtwo toy. It's the Tomy one and is widely available. Mewtwo is confirmed for Sm4sh already so his amiibo is pretty much definite. Why anyone would want to pay in excess of $250 for a $5 toy in an amiibo box astounds me, especially when the amiibo will probably be out for Summer.

Edit: It would be just as easy to make any Legendary Pokémon into an amiibo. All you need is a spare amiibo stand and the toy. For instance, I could go to Toys 'R' Us and pay £3.50 for a Deoxys in the same series and simply stick that on an old base. Hey presto, Deoxys amiibo.



Scarlet commented on Nintendo Download: 5th February (Europe):

I really want Shantae but that price just kills it for me. Still playing through Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta, Smash, Pokémon, and more, so it's not like I don't have anything to play right now.



Scarlet commented on The Hyrule Warriors Majora's Mask Pack DLC is ...:

I too have noticed a doubling in the loading time. Thought I was just imagining it.

I haven't had a chance to try Young Link or Tingle, but playing as OoT Impa is probably one of the coolest things ever.

@OneBagTravel And I loved Twilight Princess. Skyward Sword has moments of brilliance, too (but I agree that it was a weak entry).



Scarlet commented on Nintendo Download: 22nd January (Europe):

This is probably a very unpopular opinion, but I actually hate Donkey Kong Country Returns. It's only challenging because of how unfair it is. There's only one animal friend (Rambi), there are no water levels (best thing about the originals), and there's an entire world of mine cart stages. A lot of people love the game but I just don't see the appeal of rage.



Scarlet commented on Rumour: Concept Work from Former Next Level Ga...:

Samus looks like a Geodude wearing chicken stilts in that concept art!

But it's been far too long since we had a handheld Metroid game. The last one was what? Prime Hunters? Bleargh. Seriously. We're dying here.



Scarlet commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons...:

I love both of these games. For me, Ages had a better story, sure, but Seasons was just so much more fun. I also feel that Seasons' music was better; Dancing Dragon Dungeon and Ancient Ruins are so catchy [and I have the Level 8 music from Ages in my head as I type this... go figure]. Like many have already said, there's no point in playing one and then disregarding the other. I see them both as being one game that was too big to fit on one cartridge!



Scarlet commented on Regional eShops Will Continue to Offer Differe...:

Nintendo needs to stop annoying half of its fan base in the Western world every time it only lets one side have particular content. We all like the same games. Australia seems to get it much worse than everyone else. My advice to them would be to combine the e-shops and make everyone happy.
