Sensei_Sendai commented on Massive Pokémon Reveals Occur During Super Sm...:

@Bolt_Strike I believe it's because it's more or less the Pokemon everyone attached to in X and Y and said, "This Pokemon is awesome guys." Plus it's the most recognizable "Ninja" Nintendo has bar perhaps Sheik.

On another note. As of yesterday's lineup that makes 28/35 characters (or 26 if Zero Suit and Sheik don't count). It seems like two of the three main Nintendo series have their representation quite heavily now,
Mario: Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Peach, Rosalina & Luma, Yoshi
PKMN: Lucario, Pikachu, Greninja, Charizard.

At this point I'm wanting,

  • Ness
    Chrom OR Lucina


Sensei_Sendai commented on Super Smash Bros. Hitting 3DS This Summer, Wii...:

I'm sort of happy this has happened.

It negates my fear that one of the two was going to be half-arsed. They'll release the 3DS Version then work on polishing and making the Wii U version a true next gen game within that dev time. At least that's what I'm getting from this buisiness decision.

Honestly though,
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
Zelda 2015
Mario Kart 8
Super Smash Bros 4 Wii U
Codename X

These are the only games I'm looking to purchase for my Wii U over the next year. I can't see the Wii U living much longer after the release of X and Zelda 2014.

Am I the only one that likes the Chespin Evolution. He's cute and Derpy.

Not a big fan of the Fennekin Evo and my favorite is Froakie's Evo. I'm kind of scared that the Standing Fennekin may mean we get another Fighting/Fire...I will hurt someone if that happens.

OOH! Psybeam and Pyschic, that means Fire/Physic. That's a first -_-



Sensei_Sendai commented on Nintendo Direct: Watch The Pokémon Direct Bro...:

With luck we get a free version of it with our first purchase. I'm wondering what happens if we don't pay, I'd assume we just lose access to our Pokemon until we renew. Hopefully it's not too expensive as this could be a useful service for future games



Sensei_Sendai commented on Soapbox: 'Vintage' Used Game Prices Do Nothing...:

It really is quite simple, Gamestop take 100% profit from Used Games rather than whatever profit is split with Dev's and Publishers etc. They'll push high demand titles are much as possible. I actually worked at GAME in the UK for a while, they do actually teach you there to Guerilla Market, sell the old over the new.

That said, I don't really have a problem with it, as unfavorable as it is, Gamestop is starting to fall. Within a decade, I reckon it'll be mostly digital. But with this, people will vote with their money, this game'll be changed or dropped if they don't see a positive income.



Sensei_Sendai commented on Frozenbyte Praises Nintendo's eShop Support an...:

Indies are having a great time on the Platform, which is great, as they probably get alot of money from impulse purchases. I brought a Tank! Tank! Tank! DLC as part of the deal and felt it was worth it for a quirky "I'll play this for twenty minutes every few months" play session for £1.50 odd.

But I really need that good network account...chop chop Ninty



Sensei_Sendai commented on The Pokémon Company Lays Down The Law On Chea...:

What PKMN needs is an easier way to make a competitive team. Imagine a Battle Frontier Building that let you build a 'Digital Team' of perfect Pokemon, with your set moves and stats and stuff. Would be super useful to Gamefreak me thinks



Sensei_Sendai commented on First Impressions: Bayonetta 2:

Bayonetta 2, Monolith Soft's X and, if what Nintendo says holds us, Legend of Zelda U look set to be the true next-gen titles that show that the Wii U does have some good power behind it, nowhere near what the PS4 and Xbox can muster, but still worthy of being a Next Gen Console.

Looking forward to this sooo...sooo...much. Bayonetta 1 was brilliant and this is just looking to be more of the same, but pumped up to the next degree.

EDIT: Just want to add, when have Platinum ever made a bad game. The Wonderful 101 and this are two of my most anticipated games, especially since I won't be getting a next-gen console/Gaming PC for a long while.



Sensei_Sendai commented on Wolfenstein: The New Order Looks Set To Skip W...:

@Lasermaster123 As much as I'd like that to be true, Nintendo's exclusives, on there own, are losing more and more credibility in the gaming community with every announcement to a point where they can't survive with them and when the Wii U is so hard to develop for, it's just a slow moving train wreck for Nintendo.

Here's hoping they can pull something magical off, but don't count on it.



Sensei_Sendai commented on Wolfenstein: The New Order Looks Set To Skip W...:

@Spartacus3765 Truth be told, I'd be highly surprised if this wasn't Nintendo's last home console or at the very least, last gimmicky console. While I think the Handheld market can sustain itself with Nintendo at the helm, I really wouldn't be surprised if Sony turned around to Nintendo and offered them Second Party Exclusivity at some point on the next Playstation.

Me thinks that Nintendo really would be in a better position if they could be a Production Powerhouse alongside EA, Activision etc. while not focusing on Home Console creation as well.

Also, to address system sellers, Nintendo does have one card in it's favor this generation, the fact that they seem to be focusing more on couch multiplayer which the other two seem to have scrapped. Massive problem being, Nintendo NEED TO compete this generation, they've posted for too big a loss :S
