TheMagus commented on Iwata Vows To Listen To E3 2015 Digital Event ...:

Apart from the sheer insult to Metroid fans, it wasn't really that bad of an E3? Mostly it just left me thinking, "That's it? They gave us one big game and a ton of spinoffs." I mean, Mario and Luigi x Paper Mario was the only one that I really have no objections to, and even it wasn't quite what we were looking for, you know? I would have still rather seen TYD 2.0...



TheMagus commented on The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Resurrec...:

I was super hyped for this right up until they said that the competitive elements were removed and you all share the same health meter. Come on, fighting for force gems was the best part of FSA! Where's the fun if you can't screw each other over?



TheMagus commented on Feature: Nintendo Franchises We Want to See at...:

No! Nonononono! We've seen what happens when you try to make Paper Mario into a gimmick-puzzles game! We do not need another Sticker Star! We do not need some dumb origami gimmick replacing the game we know and love! Just give us the sequel to Paper Mario and Thousand-Year Door we've been waiting for since the wii!

(Note that i actually really like Super Paper Mario - I just think we're way overdue to a return to the original formula.)



TheMagus commented on Fire Emblem If Changes The Traditional Weapons...:

The slight weapon triangle change doesn't really bug me, except insofar as the fact that it means we still have the stupid Archanea magic system that nobody likes.... Goshdarnit, just give us back the GBA Magic Triangle!



TheMagus commented on ​Famitsu Reveals Some Fresh Details on Fire ...:

@ollietaro Myself, I'd love to see a console version of Blazing and Binding Blade, with a mainly remastered Blazing and a completely rebalanced Binding, along with some sort of alteration on the level of the Radiant Dawn bonuses from a completed Path of Radiance file to the children of Blazing Blade characters.



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

I lost all trust in this review the moment it said that keeping the ruined system from MP9 instead of the formula that was fun and loved was a good idea.



TheMagus commented on More Mega Evolutions Appear for Pokémon Omega...:

I dislike that we're getting more Kanto megas while still neglecting Hoennese pokemon that desperately need them, like Flygon, but I just can't get worked up over it when we're finally getting to fly across the overworld under our own power :3 I guess that Hoenn is just the region of extra movement modes x3 Two different bikes, half of the region is made out of Surfing, and now the region's remakes introduce fully-controlled flight :3 Plus, they finally have an actual excuse for sky battles



TheMagus commented on Talking Point: The Super Smash Bros. 3DS Demo ...:

They honestly should have just made the codes a Club Nintendo reward for a reasonable amount of coins/stars. The way they did this not only left the majority of the population (like those who couldn't get to platinum last year because we were SAVING UP FOR SMASH BROS.) seething, but also threw Miiverse and pretty much every gaming forum into chaos.



TheMagus commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Brings Life to the 3DS...:

Even with the MicroSD, we can still use our old SD cards, though, right? It would suck if we had to get new SD cards. I'm also not liking the backwards step with the styluses... Still, it looks awesome. I was planning to get a 3DS XL for smash, but now I'm going to wait for the New! Ugh, though, I sure hope they come up with a better name



TheMagus commented on First Impressions: The Legend of Zelda: The Wi...:

@fluggy You evidently do not understand the concept of a remake. The POINT is that it's playing THE ORIGINAL GAME with improved features and graphics, not that it's a totally different game with the original story. Anyways, the Resident Evil series sucks.



TheMagus commented on Aonuma Explains Why The 3DS Wasn't Used As The...:

I think it was really fun being able to play with a friend while exploring the awesome world of Wind Waker... I'm really disappointed that Nintendo got rid of that in order to add a forced and restricted version of the Miiverse feature.



TheMagus commented on June CoroCoro Reveals New Pokémon and Rival D...:

I just still don't see why Nintendo feels the need to nerf Dragon-type even further... I mean, there's already no such thing as an advantageous type matchup for a sole dragon type! What we need is something Dragon is strong against which isn't also strong against it... I can't actually think of a single dragon-type pokemon that wouldn't benefit from being a different type instead.



TheMagus commented on First Impressions: Super Mario 3D World:

I'm just sad that we didn't actually get a 3D Mario Game like they promised- what we have here is another 3D-ified 2D Mario game. As fun as the 2D games are, there's just something that gets bland about racing to the flag in every level. What I was looking forward to was seeing the next spiritual sequel to Super Mario 64 and Sunshine, with the mission system and complex, well-designed worlds with multiple objectives to be explored. I just hope that we'll still get a game like that, a true 3D Mario title, and that nintendo isn't solely replacing them with the 2D titles with 3D controls.



TheMagus commented on Animal Crossing: New Leaf Will Need Over 6000 ...:

I'm definitely getting the download. While I usually prefer to have a physical copy that I can lend and resell if I dislike it, Animal Crossing is just the sort of game that I want to be able to check up on without explicitly bringing it along, and- WAIT, IS THAT A MAJORA'S MASK HAT IN THAT IMAGE? YOU CAN WEAR MAJORA'S MASK? Okay that is just plain awesome.



TheMagus commented on Video: Namco Bandai Salutes the Tales Series a...:

Tales of Symphonia, no contest. While it may not have had some of the great features of later installments (Free Run comes to mind), it has what is probably the best story I've ever experienced in a RPG, with engaging characters and a great world, which really made you care about what was happening, and so many twists and turns that I could never anticipate what would happen next. I also think that the Unison Attack was an amazing feature, and way better than the manual Overlimits of later games. I just hope that someday we'll get an updated remake of Tales of Symphonia, especially if it includes Free Run. (Updating Phantasia would be nice too, but less important.)
