I hope they expand the roster for the console version. What they have now is good for an arcade game but it should be bigger for a home release. Characters like Snorlax, Hawlucha, and Poliwrath would be nice additions.

Trikeboy commented on Nintendo's Awesome Super Mario Maker Overview ...:

Many people here: http://hrschoolhouse.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Veruca-Salt.jpg

Have people like Yorumi used programs like RPG Maker, Game Maker or the countless other game making software out there? These products have a sharp learning curve. Everything is given to you right away and you have to figure it all out. Tutorials for such programs take you through step by step opening you up to new things gradually. Having too much too soon can overwhelm you and you lose interest as it can seem impossible to make what you want. Spending nine days learning the toolset and working them into what you already know isn't a bad thing. If you have done a rom hack, as I have done, levels take a lot of thought. Knowing exacly how best to progress is key to making levels. You will be much better off experimenting in increments than jumping in the deep end.

As someone who has played around with other game making tool kits, I can tell you that having everything at hand right away can be a little over whelming while you are just beginning and learning the program. Limiting the options is a little annoying but I understand exactly why they have done it this way.

Trikeboy commented on Soapbox: It's A Tragedy That Rare Replay Isn't...:

@emayer "A hypothetical Rare Replay on a Nintendo console would by no means be "definitive" either, as it wouldn't contain any of Rare's Xbox or Xbox 360 output."

You mean I would miss out on instant classics such as Perfect Dark Zero, Kameo, Grabbed by the Ghoulies and Banjo Kazooie Nuts and Bolts? Oh what tragedy is this?

There are plenty of people who would like this. I would love it. There are lots of people who hack roms and use game makers to make Zelda quests. Limiting it to NES, SNES, GB/C, GBA, NDS and A Link Between Worlds 2.5D titles would be best.

Trikeboy commented on First Impressions: Our Maiden Flight In Star F...:

I want to say the linked video is not Star Fox Assault. It is an emulated upscaled version of it. Star Fox Assault was never in 1080. I do admit it could look nicer but Star Fox has always been about tight gameplay. I would prefer them to get the controls and the levels fleshed out better. I still play Lylat Wars and the graphics don't bother me one bit.

Trikeboy commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

You know what, as disappointing as the show was, they did something that most shows didn't do this E3. All of the games Nintendo announced showed gameplay footage. The Sony/Microsoft conferences showed pretty pictures and videos and people lapped it up but showed very little, if anything, of the actual games. People are excited for Dark Souls 3 when they showed a dead knight waking up, that is all. Thank you Nintendo for actually showing how the games run. Just, maybe show games people wanted to see next time.

I originally thought it was good that they had a seperate video for Smash Bros as it freed up the video for other things. Honestly, it would have been so much better if they had just included the Smash stuff in the E3 video as that would have been very exciting. Star Fox is good but needs a lot of work. It moves too slowly. I am already sold on Super Mario Maker. The World Championships did that for me. Reducing Animal Crossing to a board game that is amiibo based? A Metroid game without Samus? That weird Pokemon style game? Mario Tennis, in winter? Nintendo dropped the ball. We will no doubt get Nintendo Directs throughout the year but E3 is a time where they have to bring their A game and they just didn't do it. There are a lot of games in there so it isn't terrible, just massively disappointing.

Trikeboy commented on Nindies@Home E3 Promotion Offers Wii U eShop D...:

Nintendo has answered my prayers. Ok, I would prefer demos of all games at E3 but this is a start. Nintendo have done a great job so far. The fack the eshop proves it. Everyone dashed for their consoles after it, eager to download the DLC for Smash and Earthbound Beginnings. So far, Bethesda interested me with Fallout but I haven't felt that "GOTTA GET THAT NOW" feeling I had after watching Nintendo's shows.

@Tsurii Are you saying that I, a Scotsman living in South Korea, am not allowed to watch E3? Since when has E3 been solely for NA? Sounds like more elitist American crap to me. Everyone in the gaming industry, gamers and developers, turn their attention to E3, no matter what country they are from.

@scamander I'm well aware the game is out this month. I expect Amazon.co.uk to deliver my Yoshi amiibo pack on the 26th.

Trikeboy commented on Weirdness: Lorry Thieves Make Off With Splatoo...:

The GAME website is a joke. I ordered the Bayonetta first edition (exclusive to GAME) and it never got delivered, the Majora's Mask 3DS Special Edition which they cancelled and now Splatoon won't be delivered. I had Yoshi Woolly World on preorder with them but noticed Amazon had it cheaper. Cancelled and will never use them again.

@MarioKartParty57 It show cases Mario Maker, a game many are highly anticipating, it shows off one feature I don't recall seeing before, enemies inside question blocks, also a look at how far you can build up a level. I'd say it's a valid story. I also do notice there is a glitch in the game with coins falling under the level right at the start. I wonder if they can do anything about that.
