VIIIAxel commented on Poll: Nintendo Minute Debate - Is Super Mario ...:

I would personally say SMB3. It added a lot of new enemies to the mix that have become normal to see in the Mario games (I'm surprised they spoiled that the Koopalings are in Smash, though), it introduced a lot of gameplay ideas, and a lot of the newer powers were influenced by those introduced in Mario Bros 3.

Also, I don't think it counts to include Yoshi becoming a star in his own games as a point. Many of those technically aren't Mario games, but Yoshi games, so it wouldn't affect the Mario series as a whole.



VIIIAxel commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2014 - Fall ...:

Now that Smash Bros is released, Pokemon Omega Ruby Version is the 3DS game I'm most excited for. I'm also looking forward to Ultimate NES Remix (I never played the Wii U entries, even though I own a Wii U), and Ace Attorney Trilogy.



VIIIAxel commented on Guide: Unlocking the Full Roster in Super Smas...:

I've been using Shulk a lot. Of course, he's the character I've been cheering for from day one, so that makes sense. I'm also really liking Duck Hunt, Robin, and Rosalina, and I'm sticking with Ness and Zelda as my old mains as well. I have yet to try out Olimar.



VIIIAxel commented on Meme Run is Coming to Troll Your Wii U Very Soon:

Hopefully, these indie devs will stop releasing rushed games, or games that should have been free Flash games in this case, on the eShop soon. After all of the problems the Wii had with shovelware, these types of games really aren't helping.



VIIIAxel commented on Developer Profile: Masahiro Sakurai:

Sakurai is my favorite game developer ever. As someone who wants to go into game development, I really look up to him. He's incredibly dedicated to his work, and makes constant masterpieces. I hope he takes a long break after Smash Bros Wii U is released, he definitely needs and deserves one.



VIIIAxel commented on Sorry, Contrary to Rumours the New Nintendo 3D...:

Eh, I don't care. With Yokai Watch coming to the West, there aren't any Japan exclusives I care about anymore. Besides, I'd hate to stumble through menus I can't read. I'll still pick this up day one if I can. :)
Also, I don't think there are any PAL exclusives I'm interested in, so I'm all good.



VIIIAxel commented on Poll: Tell Us What You Think of the New Ninten...:

I'm really excited about it! I'm going to get the standard black model (Hopefully on launch day), and Xenoblade is one of my favorite games of all time, so I'm glad to see it portable! My favorite new feature is definitely the C-Stick. I hope it works similarly to the Circle Pad Pro, so I can finally play all of those right-handed games like Kid Icarus! Also, I think the name is a bit awkward. It's definitely going to lead to some confusion.



VIIIAxel commented on Nintendo Direct on 4th September to Reveal Mor...:

When I heard there would be a Direct announced today, I was hoping for a general direct. Two game specific Directs in such a short span of time? I'm not interested in Bayonetta 2 anyway, so I'll pass on this one. It's cool for the people who are interested, though!



VIIIAxel commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

I've had my new 3DS for about a year, but I'm probably going to go and upgrade to this as soon as possible. I love the design (Reminds me of a DS Lite), and Xenoblade on the 3DS is a definite bonus.



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

I have a Wii U, and I plan on getting a PS4 when Kingdom Hearts III's release comes closer. Wii U will definitely be my number one of this generation though, since it has more games that interest me than PS4 (KHIII isn't the only one, but Wii U's still much more interesting to me). I've always been a Nintendo/PlayStation guy (Even though I didn't get a PS3 until a couple months ago), so this is the usual set-up for me. I've never been into Xbox.



VIIIAxel commented on Feature: Ten Must Play Titles on the Game Boy:

I'd definitely say Pokemon Red and Blue. I started with a Gameboy Color (With Pokemon Silver being my first Pokemon game), so I didn't grow up with many of these games, but Pokemon Blue Version is easily my favorite Game Boy game. I highly recommend that one to anyone looking for a good Gameboy game to play! Now I'll just wait for it to be released on Virtual Console...

Second place would be Mario Land 2. That's the only one of these that I can really say I grew up with, and I have a lot of fond memories of it. I still need to get it on my 3DS!



VIIIAxel commented on Review: Ufouria: The Saga (Wii U eShop / NES):

@Bass_X0 It actually did receive an official translation, but it was cancelled shortly before release. There are prototype copies in existence that have the official translation and everything. It's odd that it was never released in the West, though.
