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.



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.
