Trikeboy commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

I got the Zelda 3DS XL, looks like I'm upgrading to the Smash Bros New 3DS XL by the end of the year. The C stick will make it better to play. Though, I want the SNES themed buttons :( Can I get both?



Trikeboy commented on Nintendo's Unity Presentation Confirms Critica...:

Just remember, this game is not recommended for people who want things to blow up. It is more like an interactive book and on that basis, it tells a great story. Yes, if you know the ending, you can finish it in 2 minutes but it's like jumping to the last page and saying you read a book.



Trikeboy commented on Nintendo Has Nothing to Say About Recent Smash...:

The footage that was leaked is hard to fake. Bowser Jr isn't like that in any of the Brawl hacks. Nintendo should take their lumps and admit those three are coming. There was even a leaked roster screen that was incomplete. It had space for 6 more character tiles. Also, Mii fighters hadn't been unlocked yet. There are still secret fighters in the game.



Trikeboy commented on Talking Point: The Wii U May be Best as One of...:

I voted Wii U only because so far, that is the only next gen console I want. I may get a PS4 if there is a viable reason to buy one, which there isn't right now. Xbox One, they burned the bridge to my wallet a long time ago.



Trikeboy commented on Rumour: Unconfirmed Smash Bros. Footage Suppos...:

Video footage like this is hard to fake. The second screen is shown as it should be and the characters all look right. these three have made it. Ganondorf was always going to be included of course. It makes the leaked roster look more likely.



Trikeboy commented on Ubisoft Executive Talks Up Super Smash Bros. a...:

I'm gonna be honest, I don't see Smash Bros being a massive system seller. It will help, I'm not gonna deny that but at its core, it's a Nintendo fan service game. Most of the people who want to play Smash Bros probably already do own one.



Trikeboy commented on GameStop President Says "Don't Bet Against Nin...:

I'm actually really happy Wii U did poorly. After Wii Nintendo got a big head. They thought the success would carry over and it didn't. Due to that, they have been working really hard to get quality games and things like Amiibo into gamers hands.



Trikeboy commented on Pokémon Art Academy to School North America o...:

@kereke12 it helps people who want to get into digital art using interactive step by step instructions using characters you would like to draw. If that isn't something you enjoy, don't buy it. So far I have enjoyed the lessons and can see an improvement in my skills.



Trikeboy commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

@AlexOlney Samus has never been out for herself. She is a bounty hunter, yes, but she also works closely with the Galactic Federation. In Other M, she was not in command of the mission so had to follow the rules. In other games that the Federation appears in, she was in command. For example in Metroid 2, they hired her to exterminate the Metroids. After that, she took the baby Metroid to a Federation science station. She was also hired to escort the soldiers in Fusion, when she got attacked. Just because we haven't had dialogue before doesn't mean that she is a silent hunter. She is strong, she is skilled but in Other M she is suffering an existential crisis after her "enemy" gave it's life to save her.



Trikeboy commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

I want to know why some people hate the character in Other M. Prior to that game we had practically no characterization of any kind for Samus. This macho bounty hunting woman idea is purely in the minds of the gamer. In fact, the times we do see her with characterization in Gameboy games, she is obviously a compassionate person. Saving the baby Metroid in Metroid 2, her monologues during cut scenes and talking to Adam in Fusion, they all connect to the character portrayed in Other M.



Trikeboy commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

Samus, over the years she has put more and more clothes on and people whine that she is being sexualised. This was simply a whim by a designer who wanted to get these designs in for a character she loves. There is nothing wrong with this. Why can't Samus have a down time wardrobe? Should she spend her life in her Zero Suit or Power Suit? Please take a look at this:



Trikeboy commented on Reaction: Nintendo's Drop in Momentum Is A Big...:

This is pre E3 sales right? I have witnessed a sharp intake of Wii U units since the awesome E3 show. A few gamer groups I am in (not just Nintendo ones) became littered with "I need a Wii U" threads and people buying them.



Trikeboy commented on Nintendo's McDonald's Toys Are Rather Popular ...:

@Nintendofan83 Sony is big because until recently, Nintendo didn't have strong presence in Korea so games were either in English or Japanese. However, Nintendo finally opened up a Korean branch and many games are localised. Many kids love the DS. 3DS came out here two years ago too. Wii U isn't here yet unless it's a Japanese import for some reason.



Trikeboy commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Innovative E3 Approa...:

I was already interested in getting Hyrule Warriors based on footage from Nintendo Direct and the Digital Event however the Treehouse presentation made it jump right to the top of my Must Buy list. Nintendo may have single handedly changed E3. Remember the year it was cancelled because it had gotten stale? Nintendo, as usual, has shown how it can and should be done. The bland, dark and samey titles shown over at Sony and Microsoft just cannot compare to what Nintendo brought to E3 this year.



Trikeboy commented on E3 2014: Three Different Modes Detailed for St...:

We've seen practically nothing but I'm so freaking excited for this game. There is also a rumor going around that Miyamoto said it should be finished by next year. That's great considering this is still kinda in tech demo stage.



Trikeboy commented on Reaction: Our Thoughts on Nintendo's Big Day a...:

@Shiny_Sentret I think we will see Mother 3. Two of the call outs during the Robot Chicken sections were for Star Fox, which we know is coming and Mother 3. When pressed about it in the IGN after show Reggie said he had nothing to announce right now. There is a slot for an unannounced Nintendo game. I have a feeling its that.
