StephenYap3 commented on Review: Splatoon (Wii U):

Regardless of what score this game gets, I already DL'd this game via pre-purchase.

One thing I'm wondering is if the game would allow Rank-increasing in Battle Dojos because I have no access to online play.

StephenYap3 commented on Pokémon Rumble World is One of the Top 10 'Tr...:

I enjoy playing this game and is easily the best Nintendo-published F2P game I ever played (though it's an 8/10 in my book, though). Sure, the action may get slow at times, but I'd much rather prefer Rumble World over Shuffle and Rusty's Real-Deal Baseball (especially).

StephenYap3 commented on Splatoon Mii Fighter Outfits Coming to Super S...:

Usually I'm all up for more Mii Fighter costumes Smash 4 (there's just way too little room for customization the Mii Fighters get in the cosmetic department, in my opinion), but these don't look appealing to me.

I'll still get Splatoon, though.

StephenYap3 commented on 3DS RPG Lord Of Magna: Maiden Heaven Is Headin...:

@Spoony_Tech Agreed. I love RPGs, but the ones on the DS never appealed to me much and as a huge fan of Mario RPGs, Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time disappointed me in so many levels that not even the varied enemies and graphics were enough to save it. Bowser's Inside Story, for the least part, had more budget and effort put in while otherwise, it too disappointed me. That is one of the reasons my DS library is the shortest of the other Nintendo systems and as a result, my least favorite Nintendo system of all time.

The 3DS, on the other hand, I definitely enjoy for having a far better library and even though the system doesn't have as many RPGs as its preceding system, I prefer quality over quantity. I have already picked up and enjoyed Fire Emblem Awakening and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, I already have plans for getting Etrian Mystery Dungeon and am quite interested in the Puzzle & Dragons games, as well as Lord of Magna.

StephenYap3 commented on Nintendo of Japan Confirms the Tracks in the U...:

I'm glad Neo Bowser City made it in. One of the many tracks in MK7 I liked. Meh for Baby Park, though. I'm drooling for Big Blue :)

I'm a little bummed that Wuhu Island Loop never made it in. I actually liked that track from MK7 and it would have been nice to race on Wuhu Island in HD. No, not the track with the lap-skipping glitch. I guess the Big Blue track makes up for it.

Wow. I thought all of Wave 1 costed the $1.15 in a bundle, but the $9.20 seems stretchy.

...then again, I'm not really interested in the animal costumes and I'm meh on the Zelda ones. I don't know about Dunban though, haven't played Xenoblade Chronicles. The ones I'm seemingly getting are the Smash T-shirts and the Mega Mans :)

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 ...:

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 = ...eh, 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.
