SockoMario commented on Bandai Namco Announces Pac-Man and the Ghostly...:

People, please stop saying "PAC MEN CONFURMD 4 SMESH BROS!!!!" when this news doesn't confirm ANYTHING!

What if SEGA announced "Shadow the Hedgehog 2"? Would that mean Shadow is going to appear in Smash? No, it wouldn't.



SockoMario commented on Bandai Namco Announces Pac-Man and the Ghostly...:

I really hate the art style of the Ghostly Adventures series. The world is bland and generic. Plus, Pac-Man's new design is ugly, and his voice sounds terrible if you ask me.

I can't say wether or not that the series is bad, because I haven't tried it, and probably never will. Oh, and it's nice that the Wii U is getting a third party game.

But, I will stick with the original Pac-Man.



SockoMario commented on Feature: A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and...:

Who wants to play Smash Bros. on a 3 inch screen and with a circle pad? The 3DS version shouldn't even exist. I feel bad for people who are only getting that version.

Not only that, it looks like Brawl 2.0, and the way the 3DS' layout is set-up could lead to cluncky, disjointed controls.

Smash was clearly meant to be played on a console. The 3DS version is clearly a watered-down version of the Wii U version. Hopefully I will be proven wrong this summer.

Also, there's a lot of all-seeing eyes in the 5th screenshot...

@LUIGITORNADO I'm a competitive player of Melee, yet, I only do it for fun, and I don't spend my life dedicated to it.

And for your information, I do have a "freaking" life.

@SCAR392 When the new Smash games come out, I probably won't play Melee for a long time.


"I played Melee alot when it was new. Once Brawl came out, I moved on."

Lol, I still play Melee, Brawl, and the original to this day.



SockoMario commented on Ninterview: Jason "Mew2King" Zimmerman on Mast...:

@SCAR392 Melee isn't really the "less" game if you play it at a competitive level. Melee has a ton of advanced techniques (wavedashing, L-canceling, etc), plus there's more hitstun, which means combos are possible (Brawl didn't have "true" combos, and there wasn't really any hitstun). Also, the game is MUCH more fast-paced than Brawl, and the characters aren't floaty.

So yeah. Not really the "less" game if you ask me. However, I think Melee is the "less" game if you play it casually.



SockoMario commented on Ninterview: Jason "Mew2King" Zimmerman on Mast...:

What's this? An article about the competitive Smash scene with a ton of negative comments? I'm curious to why the NL staff makes articles about the competitive Smash scene, when the response is usually negative.

(I'm a "competitive" Smash player myself, by the way.)



SockoMario commented on Game Boy Advance Games On The Wii U Virtual Co...:

Wow. You guys weren't expecting this? I personally don't care if multi-player is absent. Also, most of the VC GBA games are single-player. So honestly, who cares? And I'm pretty sure GBA VC games can only be played on the Gamepad.

Every time there is a Nintendo article about a missing feature, people act like Nintendo is the worst thing in the world.

Nintendrones these days...



SockoMario commented on Feature: Bandai Namco Characters We'd Love to ...:

This article made me want to punch my computer screen. And seeing that Pac-Man has a high amount of votes makes me want to destroy my Nintendo consoles.

Thankfully, Sakurai stated that he has no interest in having these silly Namco characters in Smash.



SockoMario commented on Diddy Kong Confirmed as the Latest New Challen...:

So you guys are saying you'd rather have MORE new characters rather than old characters? Pretty pathetic. Sakurai even said the game wouldn't have a whole lot of newcomers due to the crappy hardware of the 3DS.

I'm assuming you guys would have NO PROBLEM if the original 12 were cut from the game. Absolutely pathetic.

People act like it's such a sin if a veteran is revealed. And people act like they should announce a newcomer every week. People are clearly spolied by the Brawl DOJO.

@C-Olimar Rehash? What?

@Ryo_Hazuki-san What's wrong with Diddy, and how is he "pointless"? He was one of the most popular characters in Brawl.



SockoMario commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Direct Pointed to Anot...:

@JaxonH I agree with your post (as usual). The 3DS was my favorite system of all time, untill I got a Wii U. Don't get me wrong, I still love my 3DS — but I'm sick people treating it like it's holy-gral of gaming.

I have 12 3DS games, and I find most of them mediocre. (Keep in mind, I don't have Fire Emblem, Zelda, or Monster Hunter)



SockoMario commented on Sonic Lost World Sales Reached 640,000 in 2013:

I'm on the second world on the Wii U version, and to be honest, I can't stand it. I don't know why, but it's just not that fun to me. They need to make a game with the Sonic Adventure styled gameplay, because that's what eveybody wants.

Anyway, those sales numbers are better than expected, IMO.

In other news: Sonic Boom is looking great so far!



SockoMario commented on Sega Moves To Quash Sonic Rumours, PS4 & Xbox ...:

Sonic is an underrated franchise, and I can see why. SEGA is really struggling to make proper 3D Sonic game. They need to make game that is based off Sonic's gameplay from SA1. In other words, here comes the sequel fanboys!

Sequel fanboy = Someone who begs for sequels constantly and won't shut up about them.



SockoMario commented on Rumour: 2015 Sonic Title To Hit Wii U Alongsid...:

For crying out loud people! Sonic Lost World (3DS) and Super Smash Bros. 4 are NOT the third games in the Sega & Nintendo partnership. SEGA said that Smash 4 wasn't the third game, and that the third game "hasn't been done before".



SockoMario commented on Lucario The Aura Warrior Returns To Battle In ...:

@triforcepower73 Sakurai stated that he didn't want a whole lot of newcomers in this game, for two reasons. 1. He said he'd rather focus on the game's balance, rather then new characters. 2. He also stated that the 3DS's hardware is limiting the roster.

I'm expecting there to be 42 characters total, and 7 newcomers.



SockoMario commented on Satoru Iwata Confirms That DS Games Are Coming...:

I thought this would get positive attention, but no. The fans are b***ing about it. Nintendo fans annoy me more than MicroSony fanboys.

Nintendo fans in a nutshell: WE WANT THIS, WE WANT THAT! BLAH BLAH BLAH! WE'RE NEVER HAPPY! What's this? DS games on the VC? NOOO!! That SUCKS! We need Gamecube, GBA, GBC, GB, 3DS, Atari 2600, PS1, and Xbox 360 games on the VC instead!

Now if you excuse me me, I'm moving to PlayStation. At least the PS fans don't complain as much.



SockoMario commented on Guest Blog: Shut up! Nothing is Wrong With The...:

Judging by the comments, a lot of people hate the Wii U. The Wii U gets more hate than the Xbox One DRM. All people care about these days is the power, and not the games.

Remember when we would buy a console to play GAMES?



SockoMario commented on Feature: Nintendo Games Our Readers Would Love...:

>Are people THIS desperate to play old games on their failed console? It's only gonna stay dead that way, i hope you realize....

Yes. You're 100% right! The Wii U has only been out for a year, and we should already be calling it a "failed" or "dead console" already! The PS3 didn't start selling well until 2010, and nobody called it a "failed" or "dead console" before 2010.

Your logic baffles me. ;)
