TheLobster commented on iOS and Android Receive Pokémon Shuffle Mobil...:

Regardless of whether or not this is the game from the DeNA partnership, I hope it sells well. I've had a blast playing Pokemon Shuffle and I would get it on my phone again in a heartbeat, but I have an Android. Considering how long it took to port Fallout Shelter, I doubt I'll be seeing this one any time soon.

@XCWarrior I don't think they are happy Iwata died. I certainly don't see anybody saying that. But he lead them to a great Q1 and it shows. I'm an investor and this is the first good news I've had about Nintendo since Iwata died. I'm glad his last days at the company were so strong. People were calling him a bad leader for such a long time after the Wii U launched and I think this is proof on his memory that he was not.



TheLobster commented on Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival Is Basically ...:

I never bought Mario Party 10 because I'm burned out on Mario Party and don't like the direction they've taken the series lately. I'll probably pick this up because I like Animal Crossing and I like amiibo. So you all can just crucify me now.



TheLobster commented on Feature: Nintendo Wins at Its Own Game - A Rev...:

Personally I think Sony went a loooong way toward winning E3 last night just by opening with Last Guardian. Then they went and revealed at least six more games I will be buying which is twice as many games as the other conferences have me interested in put together (so far). So Sony is a strong contender. Nintendo has a lot of work to do. Can they do it? Possibly! Can they match it? I think it's possible. Can they surpass it? I think it's doubtful. But then again I was predicting a DREADFUL Sony conference and look where we are now.



TheLobster commented on Talking Point: Super Mario Maker Stole the Sho...:

The only truly low point in my opinion was Blastball. That game just looks boring. The rest of it was decent to outstanding. I agree Hungrybox was a douche but Reggie kept it classy. Mario Maker was the absolute high point and I want that game NOW, haha!



TheLobster commented on Interview: Lilian "Milktea" Chen Talks Smash B...:

@Dezzy I have a neutral name and avatar not only here but across every site where it is possible. I still get bullied and harassed by trolls a lot of the time the minute it becomes apparent I am a female. When people assume "Lobster" is a masculine name, I get left alone a lot more, I can tell you that.



TheLobster commented on Satoru Iwata Outlines His Reasons For Not Atte...:

Glad to hear it's not health issues keeping him away from E3 this year but still a bit concerned that it's health issues that have contributed to his weight loss. I hope he can get those under control soon and achieve the weight he wants to be naturally instead of through means which are cause for concern. (I don't care if that means he gets pudgy again or if that means he drops more weight - just as long as it is not his health issues dictating the fluctuation.)



TheLobster commented on PolyKid's Indie 3D Platformer Poi Is Coming To...:

This looks like it has potential. I don't think I would back it at this point but I would follow it with interest to see where it goes. The physics don't look quite right but then without actually playing it myself I can't say either way for sure.

I liked the general vibe and the idea but it hasn't "arrived" yet. I can see where they're going though and I hope they get there!



TheLobster commented on Rumour: ZombiU Is Shedding Its Wii U Exclusivi...:

Well, this would certainly be typical Ubisoft, so I wouldn't be surprised if this turned out to be true.

Personally I really enjoyed Zombi U and I hate zombie games so that's impressive. I can't see how a port would be even halfway functional but that's for the programmers to work out. It would certainly lose something in the atmosphere, though.

You know it would sell (because it's a good game, regardless of review scores) and then the inevitable sequel will pass over the Wii U. That's what has me mad. Ubisoft knows what it can do with itself.



TheLobster commented on Video: Latest Teens React Episode Proves Age H...:

Just kept waiting and waiting to hear their reaction to the Konami/Contra/30 Lives code (man that code has a lot of names thanks to this game). I feel so ripped off that we didn't hear it! It would have been the perfect thing to end it with!



TheLobster commented on Poll: We Need to Talk About amiibo - Where Do ...:

Honestly my hype levels on amiibo can be summed up in the fact I only ever intended to buy two in the beginning - Kirby and Pikachu - and I now have 30. Most of them have not been that difficult to obtain and I have paid scalper prices for none. I have some pretty rare ones even. But I have definitely bought into the madness and have been extremely lucky with my preorders not getting cancelled so far.



TheLobster commented on Nikki Lives On in Latest Batch of 3DS HOME The...:

I don't use themes, but I could see the use of the Sesame Street theme for the 2DS anyway if you have little kids playing. Or if you've upgraded to a better 3DS and gave your kid your old one and have the 3D switched off permanently.



TheLobster commented on Review: Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures (Wii ...:

This is a great game and a wonderful send up both to the series and to those "Nintendo Hard" games of yesteryear. It's not perfect but it's clear the guys who made it generally knew the difference between a frustratingly bad game and a frustratingly fun one. I've been a BIG fan of the Nerd for a long time now so I'm glad to see this game come out on the Wii U, its natural home. I wonder what little James Rolfe would think if he knew that one day a game about him would be on a Nintendo system? Talk about every kid's dream! At any rate I'm not picking this up just because I'm sooooo bad at games like this and it's not worth getting again to me, but it's definitely worth it if you're a fan and you haven't played it already.



TheLobster commented on Gallery: Wii U Owners React to Screenshot Remo...:

It's an M-rated game, don't you have to be 17 (or at least say you are) to view its Miiverse community anyway? If that's not true it should be. At any rate if the kiddies can't see the community anyway I see no reason to take the screenshots down. Nintendo SHOULD have known what was in the game when they approved it, RIGHT?



TheLobster commented on North American Retailers Confirm Super Smash B...:

I went to my local GameStop. Only three people were there to preorder including me as I live in a small town. I was the only one not wanting frigging everything. Our store has three computers. At first we were only using one and of course the servers were slammed and it was taking forever, like five minutes to load a page. Eventually they broke down and decided to use a second computer but leave one open so they could check regular customers out. Finally it was taking so long they cracked and used the third computer for the Amiibo too. Luckily they had nobody in the store wanting to buy anything. I was not the first person they started but I was the first person done and it took an hour and three minutes total to get my order in. I preordered Ness, Pac-man, Charizard, and the Splatoon 3-pack. There was no idea when the other two were going to finish up when I left.



TheLobster commented on North American Retailers Confirm Super Smash B...:

@JellySplat Sadly the reason why they are making so little stock is because they are afraid to be left holding unsold merch. That's what got them into financial trouble the past few years and they are only just pulling out of it. I invested in Nintendo just around the time the Wii U launched and I was losing money on them the whole time literally up until the day they announced the partnership with DeNA. As of two days ago I am $3,000 up on my investment, which is actually pretty good. So investors right now will only see that Nintendo is finally making the right moves for the first time in literally years, while consumers get burned by lack of stock and scalpers.



TheLobster commented on Nintendo DS And Nintendo 64 Games Finally Comi...:

@joey302 I would LOVE to have some TurboGraphx-16 love! The Wii had some of those games, it even had ARCADE games for crying out loud. There were Neo Geo and Master System and Genesis games... Even Commodore 64 games! I'd love to see all that and more on the Wii U.



TheLobster commented on Pokémon Rumble World Arrives On The 3DS eShop...:

When I heard they had registered the name I thought for sure they were keeping it for an early mobile title, possibly the first, so I was actually pretty surprised to see this come out so soon. It's obvious Nintendo is really trying to focus on the F2P model and find out what works as much as possible before they launch their first mobile games this fall.

As far as this game goes I'm going to download it and give it a try. After I became so addicted to Pokemon Shuffle I'm definitely interested to see what Nintendo has up its F2P sleeves next and I'll be interested to see if I become just as engrossed. I'm already a fan of the Pokemon Rumble series so hey, free game, why not?

Don't plan to spend any money here, obviously. Haven't on Shuffle, either.



TheLobster commented on Get Ready To Build With Mario Maker On Wii U T...:

A bit later than we all expected but I suppose it will be the better for it. I wonder if they still have a few more tricks up their sleeve for this title at E3? At any rate this is going to be great fun and I can't wait to get my hands on it and start creating and sharing levels, and playing levels created by others. This looks like it's going to be a total blast and a perfect tribute to 30 years of Mario.



TheLobster commented on Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer Launching...:

I'm lukewarm on the game right now. Could be cute if it's not too expensive. I'd have to see a review.

The reader on the other hand... Why is it coming out in the fall? That's like six months from now! At a minimum! I really expected it long before that. That says to me either Nintendo doesn't plan to have a lot of 3DS games to feature Amiibo functionality this year, or they are trying to get people to upgrade to the New 3DS, or both.



TheLobster commented on Nintendo DS And Nintendo 64 Games Finally Comi...:

I feel like with the Wii U struggling as it is, right now would be a good time for Nintendo to really focus on getting these VC titles out. No more droughts. No more announcing things like this and the Wii VC and then going weeks without releasing a new game. There needs to be a new game out every week from the Wii's N64 VC back catalog, or at the most every other week (gotta get those NES, SNES, and GBA titles out too of course). Basically the Wii U needs to rival or preferably surpass the Wii in terms of the VC, so at the very least when there is nothing else it has that to fall back on. I always saw the VC as a real selling point for the Wii but it's just not at that level for the Wii U.

I mean I'm BEYOND excited they finally announced this. I'm just worried they won't end up following through in the end. I don't want a handful of games. I want the whole shebang.
