VIIIAxel commented on Video: So, How Fast Is 200cc In Mario Kart 8?:

I'm beginning to think that the people complaining about the person playing in 200cc haven't actually played the mode. It's very difficult, even for people who are experience Mario Kart players. I've been driving off the track and crashing into obstacles very often. It's much more difficult than it might look.



VIIIAxel commented on Feature: The Final Xenoblade Chronicles X Pres...:

I feel like I won't even need another RPG this generation with everything this game's offering. Each stream has made me more and more excited, although I think that this is the one that's made me the most excited. The Doll combat and online features look amazing! Definitely a game I'll be picking up day one. I hope that the release date will be some time in summer, but November's definitely seeming more likely.



VIIIAxel commented on Feature: Tales From the Front Line of amiibo C...:

The only amiibo I have is a Kirby I got to test out how they work with the game. I wanted Shulk, but I was unable to pre-order one on time. Unfortunately, I think I might have to buy one online, since Shulk is my favorite character and I really wanted his figure. My brother and I are planning on pre-ordering Ness (myself), Robin (him), and Lucina (him) so we don't need to miss out on them. We only ever see the usual Mario, Peach, Luigi, Bowser, Yoshi, DK, Link, Zelda, Pikachu, and Kirby at stores anymore. One of the first things we do is check amiibo stock in case they've got a rare one.



VIIIAxel commented on Super Smash Bros. Pros Explain Competitive The...:

I'd be careful abut using the word "brawl" while talking about competitive play. ;)

Jokes aside, I'll probably watch these later so I can understand what all of my competitive friends say when they play. I only play Smash 4 with them anymore (I dislike Project M, and I'm not good enough with Melee to be able to put up a decent fight against them), but it still wouldn't hurt for the rare occasion they use these terms when we play on the Wii U.



VIIIAxel commented on We're Really Feeling It With These Xenoblade C...:

Ugh... Just when I'd finally gotten over the fact that the New 3DS wasn't coming to North America. I hope the XL gets a bundle with this design, because this is the first thing I thought of when Xenoblade 3D was announced.

@rjejr Please, no more Xenoblade items being Gamestop exclusive.



VIIIAxel commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

Number scores have been pretty much ruined anyway (Nowadays, people consider 7 to be average, and anything below to be horrible), so I'd definitely say do away with them. I like the idea of a label system, although something for average would be nice, too.



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!



VIIIAxel commented on Not Everyone is Thrilled That Metroid Prime Tr...:

@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).



VIIIAxel commented on Not Everyone is Thrilled That Metroid Prime Tr...:

"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.



VIIIAxel commented on Super Smash Bros. Melee and Wii U Confirmed fo...:

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.



VIIIAxel commented on Rumour: Terraria is Making Its Way to Wii U an...:

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!



VIIIAxel commented on Poll: Nintendo's Year of Adventure on Wii U an...:

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!



VIIIAxel commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Demo Codes Now Being...:

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.



VIIIAxel commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2015:

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
