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.



VIIIAxel commented on NES Remix Titles Coming in Physical Version to...:

@XFsWorld Some people prefer retail, myself included. I personally only get download games if it's the only option.

Anyway, I think I'll have to pick this up! I never played either one, but was somewhat interested in the first, and very interested in the second.



VIIIAxel commented on Site News: Look, We'll Provide File Sizes For ...:

@JSaario That's one of the things I personally really like about this site. I find regular news to be boring, and like the humor splashed into the articles here. It adds character to the reports. That's why I prefer this site over the other Nintendo news sites, and why I made an account in the first place.



VIIIAxel commented on Feature: Ten Wii U and 3DS Games That Are Perf...:

For Wii U, I went with EarthBound. Summer is the perfect time for adventures, and that's what EarthBound delivers. Of course, that also might be biased because one of my Summer goals is to finally finish it. :P

For 3DS, I went with Link Between Worlds. I haven't played any of the listed games, but like I said earlier, Summer is the best time for adventures!



VIIIAxel commented on Review: Pokémon Trading Card Game (3DS eShop ...:

I could never manage to figure out how to play the card game until I got the original GB cartridge for this one. If it comes to NA, I'll definitely get it. I'm not a terribly big fan of card games, but I love Pokemon, and I have a lot of fond memories of this game, despite never even getting halfway into it. I'd love a sequel on the 3DS. The PC game sounds okay and all, but I like the RPG aspects of this one. I'd really like to see the Gen II sequel get localized, too. :P



VIIIAxel commented on Poll: Which is Your Favourite Super Smash Bros...:

My favorite newly shown character is probably Robin, since his/her moveset's really unique. I'm not sure how often I'll play as Robin, though. My favorite newcomer, as well as character so far, is definitely Greninja! Ness would be my favorite so far, but he hasn't been shown yet (I know he'll still be in, though).



VIIIAxel commented on Yumi's Odd Odyssey Hooks In Permanent Price Dr...:

I'll get this when I have the chance, and the money. Games like Smash and Pokemon have pretty much taken up all of my gaming budget. This game looked great, though, and I don't see any reason to skip out on it thanks to the lowered price!



VIIIAxel commented on Best Buy Gearing Up For Enticing Buy One Get O...:

Oh wow, this is really tempting! I'm already trying to save up for the games coming later this year, this really isn't helping. Tomodachi Life, Yoshi, Link Between Worlds, and Bravely Default all look very tempting.



VIIIAxel commented on Rayman Trophy Revealed For Super Smash Bros. O...:

I love how Sakurai shows this a few hours before the reveal just to throw everyone off. There's already a ton of speculation now just because of this.

Anyway, as much as I love Rayman, I don't really know that I want him to be in the game. It would feel a little strange. I'm still holding out for Shulk being today's character.



VIIIAxel commented on Sony's Shuhei Yoshida Says Nintendo Provides B...:

@GamerZack7 I actually recently got into Ratchet and Clank, and I've been loving it so far! Crash Bandicoot's another one of my childhood favorites, specifically the third. It's really irritating when people act like Sony's all about these gritty, gory games, when they've actually made quite a few light-hearted and imaginative games as well.



VIIIAxel commented on Sony's Shuhei Yoshida Says Nintendo Provides B...:

@JaxonH I wouldn't say that Sony is all about M rated AAA shooters. I like Sony almost as much as I do Nintendo, and it has nothing to do with the shooters. They make a lot of games that are for all ages, as well. Sly Cooper, my personal favorite Sony exclusive franchise, is a great example of that.



VIIIAxel commented on Pokémon Orchestral Tour Premiering in August:

Aw man, I was planning to go to the DBZ movie to celebrate finishing up Summer School. Looks like I'll have to come up with extra money for this one. I'm really excited though, considering how much I love Pokemon!



VIIIAxel commented on Review: Shovel Knight (Wii U eShop):

I thought it was going to end up being a 10 reading the review. However, a 9's still fantastic, as well! I intend on picking the Wii U version up as soon as possible, and I'm considering getting the 3DS version as well. It's great to hear that this game's doing so well!



VIIIAxel commented on Feature: Braving the Queue At Nintendo's Best ...:

Wow, I can't believe all that actually happened. I went to the event on Saturday, and it wasn't nearly that bad. I was there an hour early with my brother, and we waited an hour and a half in line. The wait actually didn't drag on like it did at last year's event. Despite the Wii U version crashing as we started up our second match, I really had a lot of fun. Smash Run was better than I'd expected, and I've already decided to dedicate time to practicing with Greninja, since I had a bit of trouble using him in the Wii U version. I was also sure to reserve a copy of the 3DS version, which I'll be picking up on October 3rd!



VIIIAxel commented on Wii Owners Are Upgrading To PlayStation 4, Cla...:

I had a Wii last gen, and I've already upgraded to Wii U this gen. Of course, I'm probably getting a PS3 very, very soon, and I plan on getting a PS4 in the future for Evolve, KHIII, and No Man's Sky. I know they're also on the Xbox One, but I'm more of a Sony guy than an Xbox guy.



VIIIAxel commented on Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire Details P...:

I'm not expecting anything good, but I might watch the stream just for the heck of it. As mad as I was after last time, it was still pretty entertaining watching the wacky stuff that went on. Not to mention the oil and natural gas.
