Squid commented on Hidden Palutena's Guidance Audio Discovered in...:

Pretty late on this one... I see no reason why they can't have the voice actors come back to record. The announcer already needs to come back, anyways! I understand having a placeholder for DLC characters but it feels slightly lazy.

If it's true that it's a placeholder, then that means we should see more DLC characters than just Mewtwo. This conversation makes no sense for him, so if they were only planning Mewtwo then they could easily record a more specific conversation for him — this one must be vague for the intention of multiple characters. (But again I don't expect any more than 4 DLC characters so I don't see why new audio can't be recorded later)

Squid commented on Video: The Top Ten Worst Designed Pokémon Ever:

@LeeGarbutt Looking forward to it! Hopefully there won't be as much backlash along the lines of "why didn't you put X in there, that's my favorite!"

@randomlypikachu Yeah, I have to agree with you there. I don't really understand what's so bad about it. Honestly, of all the Mega Evolutions, Mega Alakazam's design is definitely not one of the worst offenders. Instead Mega Manectric or Mega Salamence come to mind...

Squid commented on Video: The Top Ten Worst Designed Pokémon Ever:

I'll give you some of these, like Jynx (mostly a bad choice as it was accused of being racist — I mean they couldn't have seen that and thought it would be fine at the time), Castform, or Rhypherior.

Some I think are decent, like Barbaracle (reminds me of a Mega Man boss for some reason?), Mega Heracross (Heracross is also one of my favorites! high-five), Druddigon, Shroomish, Crustle, etc.

I do like Tropius though, I find him to be one of the better ones; though he'd be better if he didn't fly. I agree he looks strange when he flies. Also, it would be a bit better if you were more specific with Gen V — I mean honestly, surely, the worst Pokémon ever imagined must be Garbodor right? Of every bland Gen V design, that one easily takes the smelly, stale cake.

But overall a good list, @AlexOlney! Even though it's a lot more subjective, think you'd make a Top 10 Best Designed Pokémon? Or simply your top favorites? :)

Squid commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

@Damo Your poll doesn't mean what you think it means. You've split the only options other than 'Yes' into 'No' and 'Maybe'. But 'Yes' is still less than the combined total of the other two answers, meaning that the majority of people don't want one or aren't sure.

Squid commented on Video: Teens Test Their Skills On Super Smash ...:

Man, you guys are so critical of other people sometimes. Not all of them are good at games but I bet there's something these kids are good at that I'm terrible at. And so what if they suck? At least they had fun.

Squid commented on Nintendo Brands Come Out on Top in Tumblr "Yea...:

Dangan Ronpa may not be popular in most places, but on Tumblr it's got a large following. It makes sense.

Animal Crossing is high up because people love the characters, making human versions of them, and creating blogs dedicated to their town, plus sharing QR codes all over. Smash, Zelda, and Pokemon have all simply been relatively huge and popular this year. (Pokemon of course is big everywhere, but has a sizeable fandom on Tumblr too)

For my past half a year there, this data really isn't surprising. Though I'm actually surprised Kingdom Hearts and TF2 are so high on the list, I haven't seen much of those.

Squid commented on Soapbox: Sonic, It's Time to Talk:

But Sonic isn't as popular in Japan, right? Maybe all the quality game studios in Japan that actually gave a damn (Sonic Team) just don't see it to be worth it anymore. Sonic Boom done by BRB and only sold in the West should indicate that... Hopefully Sonic's just going through a rough patch.

In the mean time I'm just gonna keep maining Sonic in Smash Bros. :) And hey, Archie's Sonic comics are pretty good! Check those out?

Squid commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Wii U):

Hm I suppose by your scoring policy it wouldnt be a 10/10 but I'm a bit surprised it got a 9/10.

Has a Wii U game ever gotten a 10/10 here yet? Not Smash Bros... Maybe Zelda U can get one! :)

Squid commented on Review: Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (Wii U):

Eh, a failed attempt and nothing more. I see Sonic Boom as more of an experimentation rather than an overhaul. It happens with time — give something a few decades and it will probably get redesigned.

Hopefully next we'll see a more traditional Sonic game that's actually good. In the meantime, the TV show is decent...

Squid commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U GameCube Controlle...:

I pre-ordered the adapter, but the GameStop I went to did not have any shipments of the adapter, and the clerk said other GS stores in the area won't have any until next week.

She also said that Nintendo simply failed to get the shipments out on time, as the game and controller were on time but only the adapter wasn't. I am thinking this is mostly Nintendo's fault if other stores are sold-out as well like Best Buy.

Squid commented on Lucina from Fire Emblem: Awakening Gets Immort...:

Figma are top-quality posable figures, probably the best you can get (D-Arts comes close). They could be at around $30-$60 depending on where you order from. This, however, I don't think I can pass up... Hopefully they would make a Chrom Figma but I could see a Robin or Marth happening first.

And the article fails to mention that you can also swap out her head with her Marth disguise, mask and everything.

Squid commented on Bill Trinen Confirms There'll Be More Series-S...:

Really curious how they would use amiibos in Pokémon games... I guess they could have Pikachu, starters, and some other favorites, but how could they possibly get used? There's no way they would make an amiibo for all 719 of them (though that would be amazing :D )

Maybe they will use the card amiibos for Pokémon instead. They could make a lot more cards of the Pokémon than figures, and these could be used like the TCG, affecting the battles in some fashion.

Squid commented on Announcement Of "Delta Episode" Brings More Le...:

I've always been planning to get Omega Ruby, but I haven't really been that excited for these games until now. Looks like an exciting story, Zinnia looks cool, and you can get all those Legendaries! This game is now a must-buy for me.

Squid commented on Iwata Cites "Same-Generation Hypothesis" For S...:

I've noticed that a lot of 80's gamers don't seem to like Pokemon or Smash Bros. very much... It must be the opposite of Iwata's theory; they didn't grow up with it and it didn't appeal to them when it came out in the 90's, thus they still have no interest in it today.
