ShadJV commented on WayForward is Bringing Shantae and Friends to ...:

I wasn't even aware of the Apple Watch, and looking at prices... Dang. I haven't ever been into watches, and as much as I love Shantae and am intrigued by this... Well, just sad it doesn't seem to be playable with only an iPhone.

Is it twisted that my first thought was a Yoshi death chamber where Mario must drop numerous Yoshi's into the lava below to get to the end and stuff like P switches dropping Yoshi's to their death... Wow I'm messed up.

ShadJV commented on Each Splatoon amiibo Will Unlock 20 Special Ch...:

Well now I'm really pissed at Nintendo. I already can't find Amiibo I want for certain games, I was so looking forward to this but chances are I won't be able to find the Amiibo, locking me out of some content. Nintendo is really losing me because of this Amiibo crap...

ShadJV commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Plans for DLC and Mi...:

@Dolphin64 hah. And how has that worked for Nintendo? Look at the GameCube, the second half of the Wii's life, the Wii U. Apart from the lucky non-gamer audience that the Wii struck gold with (who mostly only got Wii Sports and never actually purchased a game), Nintendo has been in a downward spiral for awhile now. If they don't adapt to the times, it's a matter of time until they're bankrupt. Why do you think they're suddenly starting to change? They realized the danger they're in. I'm not one to scream "NINTENDO IS DOOMED" because I think far from that. Nintendo is a resilient company - stubborn, but resilient. I believe in them and that, when they need to, they can and will adapt. The industry has been affected enough by the poor economy and piracy, we see plenty of companies downsizing, and innovation isn't worth as much as it used to be. Sad but true, in order survive Nintendo is adapting. If your rather see the company close its doors than change, that's on you, but I'm glad to see they're doing what they have to do to make a profit. I repeat, a large enough audience does NOT want innovation anymore, just be glad they aren't going full blown free to play iOS style games. It's a rough world, but if Nintendo staying the same was making enough money, they'd surely stay the same. It's taken a lot of poor profits to drive them to this.

ShadJV commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Plans for DLC and Mi...:

DLC is simply part of today's gaming, and Nintendo seems to finally be adapting to the times instead of stubbornly clinging to the past (hopefully they continue to adapt in other ways). If I enjoy the game and want more, I buy the DLC. If not, I don't. The one thing finally pushing me from Nintendo is Amiibo. I'm fine with how it's implemented, provided I can obtain the Amiibo I want... But I can't unless I devote countless hours to hunting them or pay scalpers. Locking content behind NFC and then making the items impossible to find is not a good practice. I've forgiven Nintendo for every hiccup and stood by them to this day. But unless they somehow make the locked content for Codename Steam, Kirby, and Splatoon available for me to purchase, they're already losing me. I can't let that go.

ShadJV commented on Weirdness: The Moon in Majora's Mask Probably ...:

Now I'm not arguing with his math, but the fact that Link goes inside the moon already crushes this theory. The moon isn't falling because science, it's falling because a malevolent mask is pulling it down. Magic is already involved with its appearance so it doesn't need a black hole to stay intact, it just uses the magic. Applying science to games is one thing but when there's magic involved, science goes out the window.

ShadJV commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Turns to Classics, DLC...:

As long as I can't walk into a store and buy the Amiibo I want for a game I just got, I won't be hooked. In fact, I'm beginning to feel alienated by it. I hardly have time to sit around looking for every Amiibo announcement and refreshing web pages. When I purchase a game like Kirby or Codename S.T.E.A.M. and it has Amiibo content I want but I can't find the right figures, I end up getting frustrated, I've hardly even started either of those examples because I wanted the Amiibo content during my playthrough and so I've just been playing other games in the meantime but at this rate, Amiibo enabled games will simy become turnoffs for me. When I purchase a game I shouldn't have to jump through hoops to get extra content, I should be able to give nintendo my money for the figures I want. I know I sound whines but it's just really getting upsetting, if you don't decide to purchase an Amiibo on the first day of preorders then you're in for a rollercoaster trying to get it - and I definitely can't afford to get each one just in case a game I want uses it.

ShadJV commented on Capcom's Gearing Up For a Major Monster Hunter...:

Let's just skip to MH5G! I mean, the only titles I've played so far are 3U and 4U so I've been spoiled with G rank, I feel like I'd be done too quick with no G rank!

Either way, I hope Nintendo continues to get this series, I'm so hooked!

ShadJV commented on Super Mario 3D World and Kirby: Triple Deluxe ...:

I'll be really bummed if the NA club nintendo gets anything cool at this point, I spent my coins on the Zelda 3DS case and the Majora's Mask puzzle because they were the most appealing at that point and I didn't want to miss that.. I have 210 coins left but I'm waiting to see if any last minute post play surveys come in, as I've been registering the last of my games all month... But I doubt any new rewards will be that cheap, I'm sorta assuming I will just get a game with it.

ShadJV commented on Talking Point: That Paper Mario: The Thousand-...:

I know this is unlikely and I usually would prefer they make a new title instead of a remake but Nintendo seems incapable of making a proper Paper Mario, since SPM was only mediocre and Sticker Star was laughable. This would be preferable to any sort of Sticker Star sequel.

ShadJV commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Free DLC, Including ...:

@TeeJay sadly no. I would so love a deku stick glaive, and it could use the beetle from Skyward Sword!

@Moon finish a MH game? Are you insane?? Just upgrade, the amount of content per title is more than most finish!

@Boidoh my first exposure to the series was the 3U demo... Which was horrible, but I took the chance and got 3U anyways, didn't regret it. The 4U demo is SLIGHTLY better than the 3U one (offering the Great Jaggi was a step in the right direction) but still, it's not a good intro for new players. The game has too steep a learning curve to be thrown into like that, and collecting materials to forge weapons is such a huge mechanic which the demo neglects. Don't base your opinion off the demo. If you possess the courage, just take the plunge! I warn you though, once you take down your first large monster with armor and a weapon you toiled to make, you may find yourself quite addicted. :-p

The DLC is monthly? A little disappointed, 3U had weekly DLC. Hope it all will be free, so excited for Friday now!

ShadJV commented on Nintendo Download: 26th February (North America):

@NbaJunkie I believe the storylines are all the same but the levels are definitely different.

I'm probably going to have to upgrade my DKC VC titles while I have the chance because I don't want them to be team down again before I do. And I will probably get all three DKL games. Why do you hate my wallet, Nintendo???

ShadJV commented on New Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire Eon T...:

Should be noted this is NOT needed for Soar, you get either Latios or Latias in game, the Eon Ticket is to get the other.

I was lucky enough to get an Eon Ticket early on, but this is what they should've done first!

Curious. Unfortunately for them, I'm quite busy with MH4U and MM, so I'm gonna have to pass... And there's enough on my backlist to download that I probably won't end up grabbing this one at a later point. But who knows?

@Flopsy86 Safari Zone came after they started a democracy/anarchy system. After the nightmare of Team Rocket's base, people really didn't want to deal with the Safari Zone's crap, they voted in democracy and just did it that way. Sorta shows how, in complete chaos, when faced with enough adversity, people will work to restore order. Or something like that.

My GameStop isn't doing a midnight launch. :( though my Majora's Mask XL is coming in the mail and supposedly won't be here for a week or two, but I do have Majora's Mask and MH4U preordered, wish I could pick them up at midnight but I'll have to wait until morning. Sad face.

ShadJV commented on Twitch Plays Pokémon Celebrates Anniversary ...:

Huh. Too bad my gaming time is blowing up tomorrow... I tuned in numerous times during the original run but the several times I tried to input was during team rocket's hideout... Which lasted way too long, I hope they have a better plan for that place this time.

ShadJV commented on ​Sakurai Considered Having All Fighters Unlo...:

I wish at least half the roster was locked, for me unlocking is half the fun. Plus I got the game and was like... "Who do I play as?" There was just so many choices, I prefer having to put in more effort to unlock everything, not necessarily making it too challenging but at least requiring a bit more playtime...

Article doesn't seem to note this but these three pokemon come with their hidden ability (which this is the first time those have been available).

Still, Samurott's hidden ability is pretty horrible. I'll download them all anyways because they're free.

@JtotheY so your solution is cloning?

Though seriously, I feel bad for how it's taken its toll on him, especially with how demanding fans can be. I'm fine if he lets someone else take over; it won't be the same but he earned the rest. Sadly, I wouldn't be surprised if he did another one anyways, he has trouble letting his fans down...

ShadJV commented on Poll: Which Current Generation Nintendo Soundt...:

Buy? Eh, I don't buy music, I just use free (legal) methods like Pandora and YouTube. No piracy but my limited spending money is put towards games. Still, if any of these are on Club Nintendo next month, I likely will "purchase" them (as in with my coins) because it's nice to have a few CDs in my car for when I forget to grab my phone's USB cord and, face it, all of this music is stellar.
