Gaming since 1989

Female, 29, Canada

A Nintendo gamer since 1989. My first console was the SNES, and long hours of Super Mario Kart with my pa turned me into the gamer I am today. Now I'm a parent, and I hope to pass on my appreciation for gaming to my daughter :)

If anything, these type of games create a heavier reliance on sites like this, to give a (hopefully) unbiased third party review. I still read reviews for 1st party games, even though I know I'll probably get them.
Basically, it's training for new gamers. You spend money on a couple crappy games, and it makes you a much more savvy buyer in the future.

Wow, I'm surprised to see that I already figured most of this stuff out... other than I was always choosing either Metal Mario or Metal Peach. Good to know, but I still like the look of the metal characters over the other heavies, so I'll probably just stick with them. Metal in HD!!! Hate the look of the button wheels, but I do know they're one of the best.

Wow, comments dating back to 2011... Glad I just heard about it at E3, or that would have been a long wait!

If it had just been the Digital Event, I would have been mildly disappointed. The follow up with live Treehouse is genius. Games that didn't hook me in their reveal in the Digital Event certainly made a fantastic second impression in the Treehouse Demos. I really hope Nintendo sticks with this format for future E3s.

A solid Paper Mario would be awesome. TTYD is my favourite of all time, and I did enjoy the Wii one... but the 3DS version left something to be desired. So it's been a decade since I've truly been enthralled with a Mario RPG.

MKWii was my only online play, and since MKWiiU is coming out soon I don't have much to lament. I just loved the concept of racing people from other countries... Didn't even know it could do that before I bought it, and discovered that feature months later when I had wifi installed in my home. "Is it really letting me play against people from Japan??? NO WAY!"

So incredibly psyched for this. Mario Kart 8 accounts for 33% of why I bought a Wii U. Another third goes to 3D world, and the last third is open for pleasant surprises (rayman being one of them).
P.S. "delivered with a straight face". High five.

I was just looking to see where to buy this game! I actually have it already, but I was just thinking if anything happened to it, where would I get another one. I already had to go through the headache of finding a new Okami.

Hey!! Wait Wait Wait, I just remembered something good! WiiU officially supports two Gamepads. That actually made me clap.

Still can't believe I waited a year for a couple seconds of extra Paper Mario footage though. Sigh.

she_gamer commented on Talking Point: Should Zelda Go Episodic?:

This is my biggest problem with Zelda. It's simply too long and I don't have the time. I tried Twilight Princess, Skyword Sword, and even bought Ocarina of Time 3DS, and I just couldn't get into them. Okami, on the other hand, I gladly spent 50+ hours on, and Xenoblade Chronicles I'm approaching 40 hours. So what's the difference? I really don't know exactly, they just managed to capture my interest.
However, that being said, I don't believe Nintendo should change their current Zelda formula if it's working so well for the fans of the series. I've found other titles that interest me, so I don't feel left out when everyone's raving about the new Zelda. It's just not for me.

I did borrow the first Sega/Sonic All-Stars Racing, and it wasn't bad. One step up from "this actually doesn't suck" to "Hey, this is kinda good". This looks even better, but unfortunately, I only need one good racing game.

she_gamer commented on Review: Pandora's Tower (Wii):

As a newbie to the JRPG genre, I have to say that all the things I love about Xenoblade Chronicles seem to be missing from this title, so I may pass (massive landscapes, plenty of side quests, no penalties for taking your time exploring, no heavy punishments for dying... a lot). Still on the fence with Last Story though.

she_gamer commented on Talking Point: Is Wii U's Power Really That Im...:

Personally, I'll be buying a Wii U for its games. If being more powerful and having better graphics will entice more QUALITY third party titles, than great, but my Wii has done me proud, and looking at my library, the vast majority are Nintendo published titles. ... ... hd will be nice though.

she_gamer commented on Talking Point: The Inevitability of Digital Re...:

I'm on the fence. I would love to download titles that are no longer in (physical) production... Actually, I probably would download most of my titles, as long as they were playable offiline. I wouldn't have to worry about "RARE" titles being so incredibly expensive anymore. I've had to buy Mario Kart Wii twice due to scratches (and I'm careful). So there's another plus for downloads.
Side note, I'm dealing with this same issue with my book collection. I love buying a new book, and having shelves full of them, but I see the practicality and convenience of e-Readers.
So, if I woke up tomorrow and games were suddenly download-only... I'd be ok.

she_gamer commented on Talking Point: Achievements, Trophies and Wii U:

I like the idea of having an online profile where I can check out my achievements for all my games in one glance. But then again, I stopped using Backloggery because I became too focused on reducing the "unfinished" and increasing the "completed" that I was just powering through the games and not really taking my time to enjoy them. Achievements sometimes turn into one giant, daunting to-do list.
Achievements do extend the life of a game though, that's for sure.
