SquirrelNuts commented on Genei Ibun Roku #FE Directors Reveal More Deta...:

I was expecting a strategy game in line with Fire Emblem and SMT games like Devil Survivor, Soul Hackers, and other over-head TBS. I do not like Persona, it's themes, it's style or it's pop aesthetic. If they had announced the game as Fire Emblem X Persona, I would never have been excited for the game. I understand people like Persona, I just don't.



SquirrelNuts commented on Review: Tecmo Bowl (Wii U eShop / NES):

This is one of the best games ever! It shines brightest with two players. When I was a kid you had to hide your controller from your opponent so they wouldn't pick the counter play on purpose. So many good times with this one.




SquirrelNuts commented on Collectors Rejoice, Rare amiibo Figures Are Ge...:

I am happy knowing that at some point I will be able to acquire all the the amiibo I want, in the package, for less than a dollar each. I am a patient man.

They flood the market, people will still swoop them all up because they think they can get a lot more for them on the secondary market. And they will, for a short time. But in a few years, nobody will give a shit anymore. All those suckers that dropped 2X the retail value (if not more) on these toys will be stuck with almost valueless pieces of plastic.




SquirrelNuts commented on Analysts Suggest That Nintendo's Quality Of Li...:

Can you guys stop using stuff Patcher says in your articles? He is constantly wrong, and he is so annoying. When you quote him, it just gives his position more weight, it's just another soap box for him.

I personally was, and still am, excited to see what Nintendo can do with Quality of Life technology. I think video games and healthcare are starting to see more benefits when used together. It's a smart move for Nintendo, and I doubt they are going to abandon something they have already made enough progress to announce in the first place.



SquirrelNuts commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Dismissal of Chris P...:

You know why NintendoLife are running this garbage right? Because most of the articles here get like 10-30 comments. The last two about Mr. Pranger got over 200 each. Which is more clicks, and thus, more money.

EDIT: Expect them to milk this for all the clicks for the foreseeable future.



SquirrelNuts commented on Mario History: Super Mario Bros. - 1985:

Some people have a song they listen to when they are sad or generally bummed that cheers them up. Some people have a movie that does that for them. For me, World 1-1 is my security blanket of choice. When I need a break from the world, if something has me really down, or if I need to just reconnect with my childhood I grab my 3DS, or my Wii U and go right for Super Mario Bros.

I never play all the way through except on rare occasion. Really just getting through the end of 1-2 and warping is enough. I love this game. It's the first video game I remember playing way back in 1986 when I was 5. It's still with me to this day.



SquirrelNuts commented on Nintendo Not Looking To Churn Out Yearly Seque...:

There may not be a lot of games scheduled right now, that's true. But you have to admit the amount of games available currently is rather robust. I have over 40 games myself for the Wii U alone. (NX announcements put a nail in the coffin of new games though. )

Yes, their approach to DLC is awesome. I think it's a good bet that they will continue on their current path in the future with other titles.

EDIT: Nuts.
