Vee_Flames commented on Chasing Aurora Dev Broken Rules Offers To Port...:

I'd actually love this. Please do it.
The only thing I would change (if I were porting it, that is) would be the final boss design. Seriously, that thing is absolutely rubbish; it's like some 6 year old was responsible for the design. Thank goodness the music is awesome, though....

Vee_Flames commented on More Details Emerge on the Launch of My Nintendo:

@mjc0961 Nope, YOU are wrong. Software is tied to the NNID. You just have to make a phone call to Nintendo to kinda authorize the NNID on a new system, if in any case your old system is unavailable. Save data is tied to the hardware, though.
You can go to the eShop and see your purchases. How is that tied to the hardware?

Vee_Flames commented on Nintendo of America Confirms amiibo Support fo...:

@NintyMan Exactly. Platinum Games' games have solid shop systems... Maybe in Star Fox Zero's case the shop will be in form of a hanger (remember the wallpapers on the game's official website) where you can but stuff to upgrade your Arwing (and the other vehicles, too), whether it's for the long term or just for the next mission. Amiibo could unlock vehicle liveries and even change the shape of Smart Bomb explosions; for example, a Kirby Amiibo could unlock a Kirby themed livery and that vehicle will shoot a Smart Bomb that explodes in the shape of Kirby's face (like special fireworks). Heck, it could even unlock more features than the two mentioned above.
I just want a Direct detailing this game. Of all the games supporting amiibo in the last Direct, it had to be Star Fox Zero's that wouldn't get talked about!

Vee_Flames commented on Nintendo Removes Infamous Drugging Scene From ...:

@AtlanteanMan Eh, I'm not a fan of the "new" marriage features either, but that doesn't stop me from buying this game. I really don't think that one scene or so should prevent you from buying a game. Just skip that if might bothher you a lot. It's a matter of "if it doesn't affect me, then I can go with it."
That said, I actually appreciate your taking a stance on this issue. More people need to do this.

Vee_Flames commented on Rumour: Details of amiibo Features in The Lege...:

Am I missing something here? The Ganondorf amiibo increases the amount of damage you take from enemies (which is really odd, IMO). I'm guessing there's a standard Hero Mode where everything is harder and what not, so the Ganondorf amiibo is just to up the difficulty of the easy mode. I'm not sure about the ruckus surrounding the amiibo.
But this is just a rumor, and as always; I'm gonna take it with a grain of salt. A Nintendo Direct, tho...

@BestBuck15 Right, because every Nintendo fan is a as-fit-as-a-fiddle teenager with a perfect mind and a perfect body. No old or middle-aged people.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not really excited for QoL too but why you would come to the conclusion that someone who is interested in it is an instant fanboy is... well, baffling.

Vee_Flames commented on Pokkén Tournament Will be Picking Fights on 1...:

@amiiboacid Looks like the joke completely went over your head. I don't even if understand the point of your comment, much less anything about it. @Freeon-Leon made a joke about the Pokémon Sawk by using its name as a replacement for "see" in his statement. Then I responded to him by saying I'd give him a vanilla flavored ice cream cup. But instead of saying "vanilla," I said "Vanillite" as a reference to a Pokemon's name; much like what Freeon-Leon was trying to do.
Honestly, I don't get the insult. Sheesh..

Vee_Flames commented on Rumour: Twilight Princess HD to Feature Specia...:

@ThomasBW84 I just checked the listings you linked in the article, but I can't find anything about the new dungeon, or even about the hero mode or GamePad inventory management (used Google Chrome's translate function, just so you know) I know you're very reliable as a writer and as a source, so do you think Amazon France removed the information? Or you could direct me to where I can find the information. I thought it would be under Innovations, but there's only this: "A dark and exciting quest to dispel the darkness of the kingdom of Hyrule, renewed reworked HD graphics."
Thanks!

@FRANKLIN_BADGE
"... but just look what Nintendo is doing: this is an "HD" (it doesn't look like it) remaster which has 2 things unlocked by an ugly-looking toy, and we are expecting you to pay full price for it. Yeah, it sucks."
You really need to calm down. I get your point, but you're coming to premature conclusions here.

Vee_Flames commented on Talking Point: Considering amiibo Features and...:

Eh, I think it should have been free from the start, anyway. Without using the amiibo to unlock anything. Not even as DLC.
To be honest, I'm not sure whether a Wolf Link amiibo was even necessary. If it's not going to do something like this, it was probably going to do something else minor... which would make it useless. Add to the fact that Nintendo still has to do something about amiibo issues (applies to all amiibo that isn't Mario or Link), now there certainly is a dilemma here. If this is true (I really hope not and it's really false info), then I will be worried about Zelda U.
But it's just a rumor, so I'm not going to go crazy. Nintendo will have to confirm this very soon (hopefully in a Direct).
One more thing... even though the dungeon was available without the amiibo, some users will still complain a lot!

Vee_Flames commented on Poll: Are You Optimistic About Nintendo's 2016?:

I'm being more optimistic than I should, really. Maybe because I'll get to play my most anticipated games of 2016 (Star Fox Zero and, to a lesser extent, Zelda U) and hopefully pick up a PS4 to play Gravity Rush. Add to the massive backlog I have, and yeah... my 2016's pretty much set. Add to the fact that Nintendo's usually full of surprises (which means we might be playing brilliant games that we never know until... soon in the future?) and somewhat bittersweet excitement of a new gaming device on the horizon.. yeah, I'm being very optimistic. Very optimistic.

Unfortunately, people will still complain. I'm talking about Zero Mission. It's nice that it's finally here, though!
@abbyhitter Well, I think other users have done the job of detailing the flaw in your comment, so I don't need to say anything much.
And those box arts are quite good, IMO. Though Midna looks off on the EU version... it almost looks like she was a last-minute edit to the box art. shrugs

How come I never knew about this awesome series? Even it it was cancelled for some years, I should have watched the series during the hiatus.
Well, I'm just glad I got to discover it (thanks so much, Nintendo Life). And just at the right time, too! The first episode was mindblowing! I especially liked the random sound effects, such as the Tom & Jerry effect, and Toadsworth's "yeye yeye blah blah!"

@ThomasBW84 Please don't bother posting the review of that Bigley's Return nonsense, please. Have you seen the trailer for the game?! Why in heaven's name did Nintendo allow that sort of game to grace its console?
Of course, I'm joking about the review thing, but you get my point....I didn't even finish watching the trailer for the game. So much pointlessness...

Vee_Flames commented on Japanese Analyst Claims NX Could Launch As Ear...:

@aaronsullivan Oh, so he did mention the NX (must have missed that sentence), but I'd argue that strengthens my point about Kimishima talking the future, so he does have to talk about NX, especially to investors. When I didn't see the NX myself, I was kinda surprised... so thanks for clarifying that.
And I should have made myself clearer regarding the 2016 camp. You definitely bring up good points (I still stand by my opinion, though), but believe me, there are some people out there (heck, even on this very site) who I'm starting to believe think they're in some war with the people of the 2017 camp and just want to start unnecessary arguments. I guess the tone of your comments just reminded me of that and I just decided to say my mind, so I apologize if looks like I'm accusing you of attacking and if there's any misunderstanding. One more thing, though...

"Would I be mentioning the new hardware in the statement and neglect to mention the strength of the current hardware now if I was planning on waiting until late 2017 to release it?"
But then you're assuming it automatically means a home console is arriving this year (all speculation, but still). Besides, the fact that he didn't also mention the 3DS means... that it's still a home console? I don't know about that line of thought. But I'll still say it again, maybe it's weird that he didn't mention the 3DS and Wii U, but I'm not seeing the hard evidence that it's a home console.
I'm more of the thought that the NX is a hybrid, with the new handheld system releasing this year, and the home console component releasing next year (I've already said something about this on this site). Nintendo's handhelds perform much better than their home console counterparts, and as you and I know, Nintendo's current business (well, mostly their home console business) is dwindling. Do you really think Nintendo has a better chance of springing back to usual business with a lone home console in the long run? I don't think so. Their handhelds are stronger. Let them out into the wild first, methinks. All just speculation, however.
So yeah, maybe we will be playing the NX this year. But I believe it's what most people seem to think it is.

Vee_Flames commented on Japanese Analyst Claims NX Could Launch As Ear...:

@aaronsullivan In reply to your "serious question," it may be true that nothing of the Wii U/3DS was mentioned, but then the NX wasn't mentioned, too. In fact, Kimishima was merely commenting on what the future might hold for Nintendo. That includes the theme attractions, use and development of IP, and, yes, even amiibo. The only major (and mentioned) thing linking Nintendo's video game business is the My Nintendo account, which "which should work as a bridge between our dedicated video game platforms and other devices ..." (more evidence towards an hybrid, methinks). Of course, shareholders and whatnot always want to know where their money is going in the long run, so Nintendo is going to talk about the future. But then, he didn't say anything about the NX. Doesn't really mean anything about the Wii U/3DS unless we want to start assuming things, if you ask me.
I'm also seeing myself in the "NX - 2017, hybrid" camp. I'm not really going into details as to why as I've mentioned it so many times, but I don't get why some people in the other camp (NX - 2016, home console, or something similar) just start to freak out when they hear a "NX is releasing in 2017" speculation/opinion. We're all Nintendo fans and we're excited to see what Nintendo has under their sleeves, so there's really no need to attack others based on opinion.

@Hinaru77 The Biggest Wii U games of 2016.
Pokemon Red/Yellow/Blue are all VC releases for the 3DS
Fire Emblem Fates is also for the 3DS.
We don't know much about the detective Pikachu game, much less whether it exists anymore.
What main Pokémon game was shown !ast year? I don't remember such an event, unless you're talking about Pokken... If so, that's for the Wii U.
We don't know much about Pikmin 4, either. We know it exists, but we don't know its target console yet.

Why are some doubting that this won't be on Wii U? If this does lead to a Sonic 25th anniversary game, then it'll probably come to a lot of consoles, including Wii U. And Nintendo and Sega have a great relationship, so.. yeah.

Vee_Flames commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2016:

@JaxonH
"I really do think NX is a hybrid of console and handheld, and that one will release this year in November and the other will release in 2017- either in spring or November. I think the handheld component will be able to sync up to the console component like the Wii U gamepad, allowing for dual screen mechanics in certain games. Which would all be optional of course, since not everyone will own both."
Exactly. I'm not one to talk sales ever, but the fact is that sales of the 3DS (Wii U... well, you get the point) is dwindling. Maybe if Nintendo manages to release more exclusives for the N3DS, but I do see Nintendo releasing the handheld component of the NX (I too believe it's an hybrid) this year to start fresh again, with the home console component releasing 2017. The current systems will also get an overhaul so that Nintendo can truly create an ecosystem of consoles. Of course, NX is where it's all at (kinda sad, but I guess that's reality), but the Wii U and 3DS will still see some satisfying support.
In all I pretty much agree with all that you said, but I'm not so sure about the seperate versions thing (a version for home component, and one for the handheld, if I'm understanding you correctly). Most people might look at it and think it's some sort of scam, especially it the games are at full retail price. What I think should happen is obvious: home console plays the full version of the game for you, while the handheld plays a lite version (kinda like Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS) of it. Exclusives to either system can happen, too.
The only problem I see with that is the cost of the whole thing. Nintendo are usually known to make consoles at family value, so it'll be interesting (and yet very scary) to see where Nintendo goes next. Fingers crossed at E3 in advance...

Vee_Flames commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2016:

@JaxonH Do you really think this is the last year for the Wii U? Because I'm thinking the NX is a hybrid and its handheld component will be released this year... along with a Wii U Lite or something.
But yeah, call me crazy, but I still think Nintendo has ways to go and still squeeze some money out of new customers. It's not like we pre-existing owners have very much to look forward too this year(at least, one or two games can take much of our time, so there's that), so... shrugs
EDIT: And let's not forget the surprise games that we'll get to play this year. Nintendo is really full of surprises.

Easily Star Fox Zero.
I'm also very hyped for Zelda U, but there's not much info about the game to get me excited just yet. Maybe if we get a name and a trailer showing dungeons and such (which we should get this year).

Vee_Flames commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's 2015?:

Well, I think it's definitely safe to say that this wasn't Nintendo's best year, regardless of whether you think the year was good or not. The issues have already been addressed above: delays, an underwhelming E3, a couple of forgettable titles, but most important of all, the loss of Satoru Iwata. However you want to argue about Nintendo's future, here's hoping to a brighter 2016.
On a personal note, I enjoyed what this year had to offer. I got to play Splatoon which is just so amazing, create my stages (as well as play other stages) in Mario Maker, and finally get to play the fantastic Fast Racing Neo. I also got to play some titles I missed back then such as Shovel Knight, Code Name STEAM, Skyward Sword, and even Mother 3. There's even more than the mentioned titles for me to play and complete (well into 2016), so I can definitely say I did enjoy my gaming side of 2015. Can't wait for Star Fox Zero next year, though.
