SmaMan commented on Final Fantasy Explorers UK Sales Take a Dive a...:

Some of my friends are really enjoying FFEx it right now. And as someone who's tried to get into Monster Hunter multiple times (and failed) this could, ironically, be my best way in. I might pick it up on my next paycheck.



SmaMan commented on Rumour: Nintendo Has Plans to Localise Mother ...:

@wazlon I've played through half of it already and it's as amazing as everyone says. And now is the perfect time to release it with the sweet taste of Undertale in everyone's mouths. (It was largely inspired by the Mother series, and actually started as an Earthbound rom hack.)



SmaMan commented on Rumour: Nintendo Has Plans to Localise Mother ...:

Wouldn't it be interesting if they actually hired Tomato to do this? His current patch of Mother 3 was amazing on its own, but imagine what he could do with access to the source code?! (instead of the crazy reverse-engineering he had to do)



SmaMan commented on Detective Pikachu Trailer is Revealed, Arrives...:

As many are saying, I think his English voice actor could make or break this game, depending on who it is.

Make it Benedict Cumberbatch and you might just have the highest selling game of the year. Not that Nintendo has nearly that kind of budget, of course...



SmaMan commented on Review: SKEASY (Wii U eShop):

I think this brings up mine (and many others) main criticism of your games: there's too many of them

Instead of releasing a small mini game each month, why not focus your time and resources to release one bigger, more fulfilling one that you can give ample time to even after it's out



SmaMan commented on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles In Ti...:

Very nice! I might have to pick up one of these flashcarts (if they're still in production)

Only complaint I have is, from what I've seen, anyway, the music seems to overpower the sound effects quite a bit.
Still impressive, and I can't wait to see what hackers can do with this stuff moving forward.



SmaMan commented on The Official Legend of Zelda Timeline Has Been...:

See, I don't view the Zelda games as a time line. After all, it's called "The LEGEND of Zelda" not "The Chronicles of Zelda."

Each game is a re-telling of events passed down through generations, and adapted to whatever setting it's being told in. This is why you see re-occurring elements between the games, but a lot of differences as well.



SmaMan commented on Wii U Emulator, Cemu, Runs Games Like Super Ma...:

@shani My apartment was broken into a few weeks ago during the holidays. They made off with my Wii U, Xbox360, (w/ their games and controllers), my computer (so good luck doing this emulator, either) and nearly all of my Amiibos.
Luckily they didn't touch any of my retro stuff.

Really? That would be awesome! I always heard that wasn't the case since there wasn't an "account system" like on Xbox and stuff. Do I just give 'em a call when I get my new console?



SmaMan commented on ​Chandelure Will Be the Next Pokkén Tournam...:

Now you can go all Phantom of the Opera on their hides! Haha!

I still think that they're going to make a whole new Poke'mon based on a Tekken series fighter just for this game. This is Namco, after all, and could you imagine a Yoshimitsu-like Poke'mon? Probably a ghost/psychic type....



SmaMan commented on Epic Dumpster Bear is the Real Name of an Upco...:

I was just about to say that! I recognized that bear straight from the YouTube thumbnail as one of many that keep showing up in Greenlight trash.

Hmm, methinks this may have at one point been a Steam Greenlight game, but it failed, and now Nintendo's picking it up because... indies.



SmaMan commented on ​Another Fighter Character for Pokkén Tourn...:

I predict Namco, being so damn proud of their heritage, (as they should be) will invent an all-new Pokemon based on a character in the Tekken franchise!

Sticking with the "Ra" restriction, that could mean either Bryan Fury, Hwoarang, Lee Chaolan, or (and they'd probably go with this one) Lars Alexandersson.

Either way it'll be awesome in that you'll be able to go to Toys R Us and grab it for your copy of XY, or ORAS.



SmaMan commented on Review: Molly Maggot (Wii U eShop):

It's like I fell asleep and woke up on Steam Greenlight.

Seriously, Nintendo, don't be like them. Exercise some of that quality control you were infamous for back in the day!

But hey, at least @GNOBsoftware isn't melting down and deleting negative comments... not that they could here, anyway.



SmaMan commented on Final Fantasy VI Advance Arrives on the Wii U ...:

I'm *square*ly in the the "just give us the SNES originals" camp. In this port, the colors are washed out for one thing. This was necessary back then since backlit screens weren't the standard yet. But today, it just looks gross.

Also, the sound and music has taken a noticeable hit as others have said. Not as bad as say SMW's Vanilla Dome getting a ear-bleeding key change, but it's definitely not where it should be.



SmaMan commented on Review: Animal Crossing: Wild World (Wii U eSh...:

If Nintendo brings back old games that had online content to the VC, they should reactivate the Nintendo WFC for that game. Period.

You'd be better off buying a used copy of the Wii port. Even with the stupid "animal tracks" system that destroyed your town's ecosystem, it was an improvement, albeit slight. Probably costs less than this too.
