Sforzando commented on Cubic Ninja Sales Spike Following Announcement...:

Gateway will soon work on newest firmware too.

Hey, NL readers/admins, here's a question for you: Is it still piracy if you only get a Gateway for Flipnote Studio 3D? (Yes, eShop games work, and FS3D is out there.) I mean, it's a free app!

And yes, people are resorting to piracy to get FS3D. #SorryNintendo but this is on you.



Sforzando commented on 3DS Homebrew Exploit Set to be Launched on 22n...:

The comments here are always full of self-righteous people.
"Hacking is wrong and evil, so this news doesn't interest me because I don't support hacking!" Well, good for you? You're missing out on playing DVDs on your Wii, playing Project M, dumping your own DS carts onto one card, Moonshell media player for DS, DSCraft, Aperture Science DS, and countless other great homebrew.



Sforzando commented on Little Mac Is Officially The Least Successful ...:

I have 3-4 replays of my Dedede vs noobish Little Macs. Here's my strategy:

Stand at the edge, inhale as he runs foolishly towards you, and then jump off and spit him out before floating back up to the ledge. And if you're up a stock, you can Dededecide. So trollish. So satisfying. Fricking Little Macs.



Sforzando commented on Free Sonic Boom 3DS Theme Now Available For Do...:

Seriously, there are no reviews for either game. What the heck, SEGA?

The Wii U version looks pretty glitchy, if only because the glitches are getting shared around, but are they really that bad/common? We would know, if there were any reviews! But there are no reviews, so all anybody knows about is the glitches.

The 3DS version...meh. I played the demo. It seems like it could be kinda fun, but I'm definitely not interested in seeing more. Maybe a 5/10 game.

(Although it's definitely worse than Lost World 3DS, and NL gave that a 5 for some reason?? I'd say Lost World 3DS was at least a 7.)



Sforzando commented on Review: Sonic Lost World (3DS):

This is quite a late comment, but yeah screw reviews. The demo was tons of fun, with great graphics/gameplay so the game is worth a try in my eyes.



Sforzando commented on Upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Pa...:

It would have been nice if you could export replays as videos, but its not the end of the world. If your phone has a decent camera it should look surprisingly good. (Place the phone on some books or something to help keep it steady.) That's all folks!



Sforzando commented on Pikmin Short Movies Available to Buy Now on Wi...:

This is one of the biggest disappointments of my life. Nintendo had the opportunity right here to promote the worldwide release of FS3D by releasing it alongside these short films. And they totally blew it. When they mentioned the Pikmin films, my ears perked up. When they mentioned Flipnote Studio, I just about clapped my hands in excitement. And then the worst moment of the Direct:

(right after showing the Flipnote storyboards)
Miyamoto: "Speaking of..."
Me: "Flipnote Flipnote Flipnote Flipnote Flipnote"
Miyamoto: "Pikmin, we are releasing a Pikmin 3 Demo!"
Me: "You've got to be kidding me."

But yeah, I purchased the short films. They were pretty cool. The storyboards make me question Miyamoto's animation skills.



Sforzando commented on Polychromatic Extravaganza de Blob Will Be Mak...:

I picked up de Blob 2 for cheap since I am a huge platformer fan. I played it only a few times, and was never impressed. The levels are huge, and I always reached the last checkpoint with nowhere enough time to finish the stage, so I would have to start clear back at the beginning. The controls were awkward, progression wasn't clear, and combat and gameplay were tediously repetitive. Pretty disappointing game actually.



Sforzando commented on Review: The Legend of Dark Witch (3DS eShop):

So, I guess add this to the list of little gems I should probably pick up. Maybe if it's on sale or I have some spare change. I love little bite sized games like this, but I love bigger games like Shantae and Shovel Knight better.



Sforzando commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Introduces His Pikmin Short F...:

@ZenTurtle That is a pretty bad idea, since the crisp pixel drawings would look quite blurry when stretched out to the 3DS's resolution. But since the issues are with the online community, why not release it sans Gallery World?

Of course, at this point in time, these "issues" are nonexistent. But that would have been nice back in August of last year. It would have given Nintendo some motivation to get the online services ready.



Sforzando commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Introduces His Pikmin Short F...:

@123akis It is completely disgraceful. I wish they would announce it as cancelled at this point. Own your shame. But no, it's like everybody has literally forgotten about it. I would argue that it is one of the most accessible animation tools in history.

Inchworm is definitely a cool program as well, but the lack of sound, and the inability to control on-device playback speed hurt its appeal quite a bit. Plus, it is terribly stretched out on 3DS systems. (my avatar was created in inchworm:)



Sforzando commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Introduces His Pikmin Short F...:

@ThomasBW84 Damn it. I just spent 30 minutes no joke typing a comment, and then I lost it due to accidentally clicking something. Pretend these points are well-articulated because screw this.
-Miyamoto created these shorts in Flipnote Studio 3D to show to the external animation company.
-Flipnote Studio 3D was supposed to come out August 2013, that is past, and they have been acting like it never existed.
-Nintendo Life is at fault for not asking what happened to the app.
-If a Mario or Zelda game was released in Japan, then suddenly "delayed" and ignored everywhere else, Nintendo Life would cover that wouldn't they??
-Flipnote means SO MUCH to me and many others, due to its ease of use, community, and many other reasons.
-I am beyond angry about how it's been treated.
-Nintendo Life should do an article about Sudomemo.
-Sudomemo is a service run by a college student, which replaces Flipnote Hatena and can be accessed through the DSi Flipnote Studio. It has 2500 Facebook likes and over 10,000 users. Yes, over 10,000 people have connected their DSi's to this "new Hatena."
-Nintendo Life should do an article on Sudomemo.



Sforzando commented on Ninja Battle Heroes:

Cool to hear good things about this. Maybe next time I have some spare change in my eShop account. (as if that will ever happen!)



Sforzando commented on Review: Shantae And The Pirate's Curse (3DS eS...:

Look at Jasmine and Ariel in Disney movies, and their bare midriffs. These are characters definitely aimed at kids, and you didn't have SJWs calling Disney misogynistic back then.

(Of course, they aren't quite Shantae.)



Sforzando commented on Review: Shantae And The Pirate's Curse (3DS eS...:

@CanisWolfred Another review said that character art is 3d-layered on the top screen, so I assume that's what they're referring to here. If you've used Colors!'s probably similar to that.

For some reason, it's the 2d games that make me wish i had a 3ds rather than a 2ds. SM3DL and Smash? I don't mind them in 2d at all. Shovel Knight and Shantae? I need the 3d pixels!!



Sforzando commented on Review: Shantae And The Pirate's Curse (3DS eS...:

Yeah, this game is sexy. But it's in a cute and charming way. It's in no way sexist, especially as Shantae was designed by Matt Bozon's wife. (Source:

It's fair to admit this bothers some people, which is what the review did. It's not fair to say that the art style is "problematic," and did none of that. (Although it did call it "unnecessary," which is technically true.)
