VIIIAxel commented on More Details Emerge on Xenoblade Chronicles X ...:

The original Xenoblade is my favorite game of all time, and this is certainly shaping up to be a worthy successor. I've been excited since day one, and now my excitement's probably exceeded Smash Bros levels! I can't even describe just how excited I am for this! I'm ready to explore Planet Mira!

@biglittlejake I was referring more to Prime Trilogy, I just worded that wrong. I agree that Nintendo should try to get more rare games out like this one. However, the last time I checked, Pokemon games were not that rare. I got a copy of Silver a few years ago for $15-$20 (Don't remember the specific amount).

"How dare Nintendo try to make it easier for their fans to get rare games more easily!"

I won't be able to get Prime Trilogy on Thursday, but I should be able to download it the next day. I can't wait to try out the Prime series! :)

VIIIAxel commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

The three I want the most are The Last Story, Rhythm Heaven Fever, and Radiant Dawn. I love what I've played of Fever, but I don't actually own it, so I'd love to try the full game. I recently got into the Fire Emblem series, and being able to download the rarest game in the series for a low price would be very nice. As for The Last Story, Xenoblade has become my favorite game of all time, and I really want to try the other two Rainfall games at some point.

I personally don't care for these sorts of events, but it's cool to see Smash Wii U actually make it in. I'm surprised it got a spot, considering some competitive players seem to think anything past Melee is unplayable garbage for dirty casuals. I still bet the Melee tournament will be more popular, though.

I've spent over 100 hours with this game on PC, and if this is true, I'll be getting it at least on one other Nintendo system. Terraria's a fantastic game, I'd definitely place it far above Minecraft and other similar games. I hope this rumor is true!

Xenoblade X, by far. The Zelda games don't even compete with it. ;) Xenoblade on the Wii is my favorite game of all time, and I can't even explain how excited I am for the sequel! I'm looking forward to the other games, of course, but X is my personal most exciting game of the year!

I just played the demo with a friend, we had a lot of fun! Anyone know if there's a third mission? I remember hearing that there is, I just have no clue how to actually get it.

EDIT: Nevermind, figured out it's not playable on beginner. I'm new to Monster Hunter, so I never thought to check that.

Easily Xenoblade X, I don't even need to think about that one. The original Xenoblade is my favorite game of all time, and Xenoblade X is looking fantastic! Can't wait to play it!

Star Fox is probably #2, with Splatoon, Mario Maker, Zelda, and Yoshi all being close to that one... Oh, too many good games coming this year!

VIIIAxel commented on Poll: Which is the Best Pokémon Game?:

Silver has always been my favorite, if my avatar didn't make that obvious. It had a ton of content (16 badges? Two regions?), a lot of my favorite Pokemon (Totodile's evolution line, Umbreon, Tyranitar, Houndoom, etc.), my personal favorite region, and my favorite battle in the series (Gold vs Red). Nothing's topped it yet for me, although OR/AS might take second place once I finish those.

As for the remakes, as much as I enjoyed them, they just didn't have the same charm. I'm not a fan of Gen IV's slow engine, and I feel like a lot of the changes and added features were just unnecessary. I'll admit that some nostalgia might be involved since Silver was my first Pokemon game (And proper RPG at that), but the remakes will never beat the originals for me.

VIIIAxel commented on Poll: Which is the Best Super Smash Bros. Game?:

Smash Bros Wii U is easily the best. A ton of features, new characters, 8 player smash, improved online play... Definitely my favorite game in the series! I feel like Melee's overrated. It's fun, but it feels kind of clunky to me.

My rankings:

1. Wii U
2. 3DS
3. Brawl
4. Melee
5. 64

VIIIAxel commented on Nintendo Download: 27th November (North America):

If I had the eShop funds, I would definitely get Dual Destinies or Wonderful 101. I actually never tried out W101's demo until today, and it's a lot more fun than I'd expected! The only issue would be the 12GB of space it takes up...

VIIIAxel commented on Mewtwo Club Nintendo Super Smash Bros. Distrib...:

I was getting both versions, but since both myself and my brother have our own copies of the 3DS version, one of us will end up having to pay. It's nice to know we'll get the option to both get Mewtwo, but this would be much easier if there was some way for us both to get it for free.

VIIIAxel commented on Video: Watch The Mario Kart 8 × Zelda DLC Run...:

Why watch the video to see it in 1080p 60fps when I can just play it on my Wii U? ;)

Jokes aside, hopefully this can help people decide whether or not they want the DLC. I got 3 stars on both cups on 150cc (Still need to do them in mirror mode), and I love every track. I can't wait until the second pack is released!

VIIIAxel commented on Video: The Top 10 Mario Platformers, As Select...:

My list would be different, but when it comes to Mario games, I suppose you really can't go wrong. The fact that the top three were all so close to each other was also really impressive. It just goes to show how fantastic these games are!

Also, for those curious, Super Mario Galaxy is my favorite. I played a little bit of the second, but I really need to pick it up sometime soon...

VIIIAxel commented on Feature: Breaking Down Over 50 Must-See Things...:

This Direct was possibly the best we've ever had. I loved just about everything that was shown. 8 Player Smash, Metal Face, a Stage Builder that's actually good... And, of course, Mewtwo! I was always excited about this game, but now I really can't wait!
