StephenYap3 commented on Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures Looks Set For...:

@Kaze_Memaryu I've already heard of Binding of Isaac's status (and personally, I'm kind of glad it got rejected). However, after watching the AVGN review of this game and looking at how long ago Screw Attack games said it would coming very soon (back in 2013), I though Nintendo rejected it after those months due to the adult content it had (i.e. language, questionable images, and that certain level based on a certain Atari 2600 game).



StephenYap3 commented on Standard-Sized New Nintendo 3DS Photos Emerge ...:

I would rant about NoA not bring the standard-sized New 3DS to the US (I'm an American), but I'm not one of them at heart and I want one to just upgrade from my original 3DS I got from August 2011, as well as portability.



StephenYap3 commented on Standard-Sized New Nintendo 3DS Photos Emerge ...:

It better come to the US. I could care less for the Skittles buttons, but what matters is me getting the white model since that's the one I wanted since the announcement.

I love you, Nintendo, and I have been your utmost supporter and fan since the beginning, but you disappointed me there.



StephenYap3 commented on Mysterious Murasame Castle's Takamaru Was Cons...:

@SwaveSays I'm gonna have to agree. I liked Dr. Mario back in Melee, but not in SSB4. The reason being that he's got a worst recovery than his red-hatted self, which is one of the reasons I died more times with him than anybody else when 100%ing All Star mode. Another reason is that his final smash is literally Mario Finale with pills replacing the fireballs, which is so cheesy and lazy that as a huge Mario fan myself, even I am offended as to why this exists (how about something different and more faithful, like raining pills that hurt fighters gradually?). If Dr. Mario were to return in the next Smash, he is to be Mario's palette swap only. The only thing I liked about Dr. Mario is his Dr. Tornado move, even though I only use it for nostalgic purposes nowadays.

As for Paper Mario, as you said, he would have an interesting move set (if one were to have played the first two games in the series, at the very least) and I'd much rather have interesting move sets than clones, but even then in some cases, clones aren't bad for me. I do happen to like Dark Pit for quite a bit.



StephenYap3 commented on Gunman Clive 2 Developer Talks About a Possibl...:

Wii U port =, wouldn't mind a Wii U port. I wouldn't want it, personally, since I already have it on my 3DS.

Gunman Clive 3 = Please do. While GC2 is a good game, it doesn't top the predecessor for me for some of its gimmicks (CURSE YOU STAGES 10 AND 22!!), it felt way too challenging than it needed to be at many times (even on the Easy difficulty level I still kept getting the boot), and even with its new ideas here and there, it felt like a rehash (though I still like the game and I will always consider it good in my book). I am hoping GC3 will somehow shake things up (like...branching paths to different levels and bosses? I don't know...) to freshen up the GC formula.



StephenYap3 commented on Review: Mario Party 10 (Wii U):

I can't believe I'm saying this, but my hype has died a bit after reading this review. Although I'm still getting (since I preordered it), 10 just has a few things I'm mixed about...from what I researched, that is:

-You can't play amiibo Party without an amiibo. Okay, sure you need one to unlock the mode, but just the fact that each player needs one to play it while the CPU gets a pass just annoys me. I like amiibo figures, but why no "No amiibo" option?
-No Story Mode. 9's Story Mode wasn't good and there's room for improvement and I wanted to see single-player versions of the Boss Mini Games (yes, I'm aware of Island Tour and DS). I know this is a party game, but not everybody is going to have friends everywhere 24/7.
-Lastly, content. Now, I care more for gameplay than content any game, but the content here seems...lite, even more so than 9. Sure, you can buy models for picture-taking, new vehicles, music (why is that still there?), as well as the bonus games, but I feel like there should be more to the game...and that Badminton minigame looks like a poor man's version of Mario Tennis, in my opinion.

...but regardless, I'm still getting the game and hopefully if I do enjoy it, my gripes will be crushed.



StephenYap3 commented on Xenoblade Chronicles 3D New Nintendo 3DS Cover...:

I'd be excited for those if NoA released the standard-sized New Nintendo 3DS here. Because they didn't for some of the most inane reasons I've ever heard, I will be forever disappointed.

Now, I love Nintendo with all my heart and I will continue to support them, but this is by far one of the biggest disappointments of all time, in my opinion.



StephenYap3 commented on Feature: Five Nintendo 64 Games We'd Love to P...:

Definitely Super Mario 64 for better controls, as well as having Mario playable 100%. Adding other playable characters was nice, but having to switch between them didn't sit well with me (despite their caps existing in the game for other characters to nab).

As much as I enjoyed Paper Mario: Sticker Star (though not as much as the first two titles in the series; in fact, I enjoyed all four titles in the series), I also want Paper Mario 64 on the 3DS too.



StephenYap3 commented on New Nintendo 3DS Launch Sales in the West Surp...:

It's good to hear that New 3DS XL started off better than the 3DS XL. Hopefully that means NoA will bring the standard size New 3DS (white one, I hope) to the US the same year because I have no interest in the N3DSXL, and this is coming from a man who buys anything that is Nintendo.



StephenYap3 commented on Review: Battleminer (3DS eShop):

6/10 for me. The only problems with this game for me is how the compass never points you to the survivors waiting to be rescued. I'm hoping that gets added in the upcoming update. And yes, I will admit that the game does tend to get repetitive at times.

Overall, from what I paid for this game, I'd say I enjoyed it for what it was. I did enjoy how it is a simpler Minecraft clone and it doesn't heavily rely on building stuff, which I'm personally not fond of (and I say this as a person who likes customization in games). I'm also not much of an FPS person myself, but I find guns in this game fun for some reason. Shooting those ants and spiders seem to yield some sort of fun factor and satisfaction for me.



StephenYap3 commented on Club Nintendo to Close, With Replacement Loyal...:

As much as a little lacking they have been with their rewards and somewhat, I will be sad to see them go. At least I will get me that long-awaited Flipnote Studio 3D...
