VIIIAxel commented on Enter a Crazy Code to Unlock a New Character i...:

I've been entering the code for quite a while now, and not seeing anything different at all. I'm using a North American 3DS, so I don't know if that has anything to do with it. I really want this, since Vegeta is my favorite character and I like the SSGSS form. I just wish it was a playable character.



VIIIAxel commented on Final Fantasy Explorers is Journeying To The W...:

@OneBagTravel The last main series FF game I enjoyed was VII (I like what I've played of IX, but I haven't played enough to include it). I also liked what I played of XIV: A Realm Reborn, but I'm not really counting that since it's an MMO. There have been a few fun side games, but Final Fantasy really isn't what it used to be. I might look into this one, but I won't be getting my hopes very high for it.



VIIIAxel commented on Obituary: Satoru Iwata:

I never met Iwata, but as someone who is an aspiring game developer, he was someone who I really looked up to. His introductions and various jokes in Nintendo Directs would always get me to smile. Mr. Iwata is the one who I can thank for many of my favorite gaming experiences, and is a large part of my continued decision to become a developer in the future. As such, hearing this news last night hit hard. I'm still having trouble comprehending that he's gone... I can still imagine him leading off the next Nintendo Direct with a smile as always. Rest in peace, Mr. Iwata. Thank you for the fun and laughter you and your coworkers were able to bring me through your games.



VIIIAxel commented on Nintendo Download: 18th June (North America):

I already got the Smash DLC and Mother 1 (I still prefer that name over EarthBound Beginnings, to be honest) when they were released, and I took advantage of the new sale to get Fire Emblem: Awakening and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga yesterday.



VIIIAxel commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

I guess I'm one of the few who thought it was fine. The Wii U side was a bit disappointing, but the Xenoblade release date and Star Fox Zero content made up for the lack of much else. The 3DS side of it was amazing, though. My friends and I all really enjoyed watching it. It was far better than the snoozefest Square Enix conference right after...



VIIIAxel commented on Poll: We Need to Talk About amiibo - Where Do ...:

Do the stock issues bother me? Yes.

Will I quit collecting them for that reason? Of course not! I love amiibo, and I have no plans to quit collecting them any time soon. I've already got my five mains (Shulk, Ness, Zelda, Captain Falcon, and Greninja) and many other characters, and I plan on continuing to get the Smash characters who I like. I'm also excited to see what new amiibo lines will be produced, so long as stock is maintained.



VIIIAxel commented on Humble Nindie Bundle Adds Three New Games:

I still haven't received an email yet with codes for these three games. I paid the full $10, so I should get them. Is there anything I need to do to ensure that I get the three codes?



VIIIAxel commented on This Kickstarter Project About Competitive Pok...:

I'm definitely looking forward to this. I have yet to really get into the competitive scene because of how complex it is, but I'd love to learn more about what it's like. This sounds way more interesting than that documentary about the Melee community.



VIIIAxel commented on Koji Igarashi's Castlevania Successor Teased b...:

What's with people suddenly jumping ship with Comcept? Not too long ago, everyone seemed to love them. I'm still interested in Mighty No. 9, personally, and I'd like to see what else Comcept can do.

As for this, I'll definitely keep an eye out for the reveal. I doubt that I'll be watching the stream thanks to schoolwork, but I'm interested to see what will be revealed!



VIIIAxel commented on Updated Documents Point to Multiple amiibo Res...:

I literally just imported a Shulk amiibo last week... I'm hoping this is for that Gamestop restock that was supposed to happen before and ran out of pre-orders, because I won't be very happy if it suddenly becomes more common right after I get one from Japan (Much cheaper than it would have been to order one from America through scalpers, but still, I'd rather take the $13 one.)



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!
