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

Personally, I am most looking forward to the Wii U edition.

I would have preferred that they both released at the same time (even if that meant that the 3DS version was delayed).

As it stands, I'll probably wind up getting both. ;)



shinesprite commented on Eiji Aonuma Explains Why The Legend of Zelda I...:

No, keep doing what you do best Aonuma. Solid, spaced titles are the way to go. Perhaps Mario could even learn a thing or too. I'd actually like to see Nintendo offer a better balance of franchises (eg. Kid Icarus, F-Zero, and Star Fox). . . and if that means less frequent Mario titles, than so be it. ;)



shinesprite commented on Nintendo Considering Cross-Buy eShop Purchases...:

Honestly, I think I'd rather first have cloud-saves, a proper Club Nintendo game-linked account system; and the ability to buy games for mobile/console games from either eShop, mobile devices, or a computer, and then having them auto-download, so they'll be waiting for me when I want to play them.

Cross-Buy purchases would be great for consumers, but, more realistically, I can see this as being an option which would probably be left up to the developers.



shinesprite commented on Dan Adelman - Nintendo is "Very Much Aware" of...:

I for one am not the least bit worried.

Poking around, it looks like Nintendo is advertising like crazy for Network Software Engineers (eg. for the eShop & Miiverse) on job sites such as

If this is the case, I think its safe to say Nintendo has heard our pleas, and it's less a matter of "if?", but more a matter of "when?". ;)



shinesprite commented on WayForward Launches Kickstarter Campaign for S...:

Hmmm, I really really like the Stantae series, but I have my reservations about the new art/music style. The enemies look fine, but the 2.5D world reminds me of Lost Winds (in a bad way), and frankly I just don't think the cartoon/kid style suits the main character. :|



shinesprite commented on Weirdness: This 1DS Spoof is Remarkably Well Done:

Do I spot some Photoshop mistakes on the 1DS, nah those are just separate plastic pieces.

But seriously, Nintendo needs something like this so that players can enjoy their games on the big-screen. It could somehow connect to the Wii U, and perhaps even allow 3D TV owners to experience the games you know, in true 3D. ;)
Make it so Nintendo!



shinesprite commented on There's a Shiny New StreetPass Mii Plaza Updat...:

I seriously doubt it's anything astounding.

Perhaps they're just doing minor bug fixes, laying the groundwork for 2DS connections, and. . . you know. . . checking what type of system you're using so that the app can replace all the "3DS" text with "2DS" if necessary. ;)



shinesprite commented on Investor Approval Rating For Satoru Iwata Drop...:

I think Iwata mostly makes the right decisions for the company, it's just that sometimes, there is no 'right' answer.

True, more commercials and promotions would help, but at the same time, I think the ignorant consumer's are to blame.



shinesprite commented on Nintendo Download: 27th June (North America):

"From 12:00 am PST on 28th June to 11:59PM PST on 30th June, you can earn 20 bonus Club Nintendo coins when you purchase any Virtual Console game from the Wii U eShop"
Ugh, and I just bought Yoshi earlier in the week!



shinesprite commented on Third-Party Characters in Smash Bros. to be Ke...:

Send Sonic in, and I'm good.

As for character reductions, the 3DS version will probably have less-textured, lower-poly models. . . but seeing as the hand-held's display is considerably smaller, it probably won't be such an issue.



shinesprite commented on First Impressions: Super Mario 3D World:

I agree with this 100%! Starting with NSMB.Wii, I felt that the Super maria games had lost their edge. Galaxy 2 was great, but even that game would've benefited from more interesting game-play mechanics.

That said, I know Mario sells systems, but perhaps if Nintendo held off on milking the Mario platformer genre, and instead focused on other series, like, oh say Star Fox or F-Zero, there would be a stronger love for future entries in the Mario platformer series.

In short, I think that the Zelda and Metroid IPs have been doing a good job, spacing out their titles, and maybe Nintendo should do the same for Mario platformers.



shinesprite commented on Hideki Konno Delves Into Mario Kart 8:

I'm actually more excited about this than the new Smash Bros!!! I really wish I could try it out. :(

Anti-gravity is really awesome, but I think they should add support for Pro Controller users.
