WaveBoy commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS (3DS):

I won't be getting the 3DS version until later on, this is an underwhelming version to get into after the last 'console' release since this feels like a Brawl .5. I'm not starting out my next smash bros adventure on a 'handheld' that's graphically comparable to the Wii with superior shading/lighting effects. :P This will be an 'after' appetizer to this christmas GRAND meal. ;)

WaveBoy commented on Nintendo Direct: New Nintendo 3DS Models Comin...:

Does anybody know if the new non-XL original 3DS's get brighter when you have the AC/charger adapter plugged in the wall? This unlocks the 6th brightness setting ont he original 3DS, and i personally can't live without it. the 5th brightness setting makes 3DS games look lifeless. XL can't go beyond this.

WaveBoy commented on Review: Gargoyle's Quest II: The Demon Darknes...:

Oh snap! This will be a great match for this upcoming howling Halloween. Yet i don't think i can handle playing Wii U 'VC' games on my HDTV.... it already dishes out 27ms of lag, but emulations such as GQII have at least 1 frame/16ms of extra lag which ultimately comes to about 43ms which SUCKS.

Bummer! might just have to hook my Wii U up to my CRT instead for VC gaming to get only 16ms of lag. What a double dragon DRAG!

WaveBoy commented on New Mighty No. 9 Trailer Builds The Hype as Ke...:

@Philip_J_Reed
It was Mega Man 9 for me.
Scratch that, my excitement for Mighty N.9 has dropped nearly 75% ;)

This looks like a lost & found PS2 game. :P The visuals look very mechanical and lifeless. Mega Man 7 & 8 on the otherhand actually feel Alive. I just don't really care for this game anymore to be honest.

WaveBoy commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Brings Life to the 3DS...:

The skeptics said it wasn't possible, but NIntendo proved them Wrong in regards to widening the sweet spot significantly! :P Plus the top screen has less blur to boot. :D

I will be getting one of the original 3DS sized versions of this. wasn't a fan of the XL.

WaveBoy commented on Xenoblade's Shulk Confirmed For Super Smash Br...:

@RaphaBoss
What are you talking about? When did i mention that these characters were from anime? I said they have an 'anime' inspired flavor/look to them.... facepalm Insert Fire Emblem and Xenoblades. Then again, it seems like they toned Shulk down from his original japense-y look and Nintendoized him to fit better with the Nintendo roster. Still, the originality with all of these swordsmen art direction/character design wise are a little on the generic side.

Take my Money!!! :D
Torn between the Aimgo 'white' or black original 3DS.
The improved 3D viewing angles and reduction in motion blur are a huge deal to me. It's a shame though that Nintendo didn't bother including a 6th brightness setting which is only available to the original 3DS models if you plug in your Adapter cable. :P

WaveBoy commented on Xenoblade's Shulk Confirmed For Super Smash Br...:

Too many Swords men and too much anime flavor. I mean honestly, this 3rd party slot could of actually been SIMON BELMONT, Bill Rizer(Contra) or Arthur(Ghosts 'n Goblins), characters that have actually been there from the beginning, that are far more worthy, Nintendo-y and recognizable. WTF. Sakurai just seems to be satisfying his own needs

This does nothing for me, but i cannot WAIT to see the duckhut video unveiling! :o

WaveBoy commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Confidently Outlines Nintendo...:

Video games for the most part have been dubbed down these days, for the Casual movie goer in mind.

Nintendo still needs to embrace motio controls and put them to good use like they did with metroid Prime, Wario Land Shake it!, Zelda Skyward Sword(just to name a few) and of course embrace traditional controlled goodness.

Just ease down on trying to please these I-phone transitioning tweens and soccermoms and turn back to the NintenZoids that have been here from the very start.

WaveBoy commented on Rumour: Unconfirmed Smash Bros. Footage Suppos...:

Knocking out Lucus, Wolf and Snake makes sense. However, there's still no confirmation for the Ice Climbers. They are the only Brawl-newcomer that hasn't made it in yet. I personally don't care, but i'm sure there are quite a number of people who like to play as them.

WaveBoy commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Assets Spotted:

@Daisaku36

Because Infamous and Uncharted were never on a Nintendo System to begin with....

Resident Evil: 'revelations' originally debuted on the 'nintendo' 3DS. Lets not forget.....Resident Evil 4, RE2(N64), Remake, Zero, RE4: Wii Edition, RE: Umbrella Chronicles, RE: Darkside Chronicles, RE: Gaiden(GB), RE DS, the playstation ports and RE: Revelations: U Edition.

Yup, it's fair to say that capcom has released plenty of resident evil games on Nintendo platforms, which gives Thomas every reason to whine, moan and complain. :P

We're not even getting Remake HD for crying out loud. I'd imagine that could also be done on the Wii U, what, with the updated character models(ect)

@Lo3edia
I'm with ya dude. Once you experience pointer controls for aiming(be it the first or 3rd person genre ect ect) you CANNOT go back to a clunky, robotic, stiff, unimmersive and unintuitive thumb stick, at least i can't. If by some miracle the Wii U gets Revelations 2 it will be highly unlikely that it will get pointer support. Capcom is a failure these days at seeing the potential of motion controls.

I'm passing on Revelations for the Wii U since there's no pointer support. I already finished it on the 3DS a year prior to that anyways.

WaveBoy commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Assets Spotted:

Revelations was a total mixed bag, but...The more Resident Evil, the butter! i mean better. :* It's funny though, Capcom always talks about rebooting the franchise but they just can't seem to do it. :P

Also, if it's not coming to the Wii U, then no it's no dice for this little Mullet 'n mega'd Puppeteer. The direction as of late for RE as a whole, in regards to 5, Revelations and 6 has been sour. Normally i'd be really excited, i mean c'mon...It's a NEW resident evil game. But the fact that i couldn't even bare to play more than 30 minutes of RE6 shows that my lust for the series that was once obsessive has been decaying like a wet zombie sandwich.

I want survival horror, take the series back to it's roots. Enough with this mindless puzzle lacking, ammo riddled action packed interactive movie gun blasting bogus bananza.

WaveBoy commented on The Sega Genesis is Now 25 Years Old:

25 years old and still in the shadow of the SNES.
Genesis still had the greatest ghostbusters game period. ;)

I got the genny a few months after it's release, and i deeply regret it. Because it took another year for me to get my own SNES, which was far and away more magical than the pile of genesis games i went toe to toe with.

Greatest genny memories must of been Rocket Knight Adventures, Streets of Rage, Splatterhouse 2, Toe Jam & Earl, Ghostbusters and few or so other, but none of them can compare to nintendo, capcom and konami's heavy hitters on the SNES imo.

WaveBoy commented on Beautiful Limited Edition Super Smash Bros. 3D...:

@ogo79
There still hasn't been a new 3DS design that has topped the regular 'Aqua Blue' imo, that thing looks like it popped out of a shimmering mystical ocean summoned by none other than Ariel the little mermaid.

The 80's-ish sparkly cake layered aqua blue design is too pretty for words. When i got my 3DS XL blue, i was like....WTF is this plastic hot mess of boring clam cowabunga sauce. It looks like it belongs in the DSi family.

WaveBoy commented on Feature: Hyrule Warriors - Everything We Know ...:

@Vrael
This. I don't care if it has Zelda Asthetics, this game looks like a total mindless affair. I don't have one ounce of excitement for this at all. Underneath it all is Samurai Warriors after all, which would have zero chance of being successful in the west. But now it's going to be a smash hit because of the new LOZ 'skin'. These ZeldaLings just can't help themselves.

What's next? Is nintendog's going to get a sequel called "Gannon babies" edition.

Hmm, i'll admit i don't go ape sh** whenever a new LOZ game is revealed. The series just doesn't excite me the same way Mario and Mega Man do. ;)

WaveBoy commented on Shin'en Multimedia to Finally Show Off Fast Ra...:

Get ready for the ultimate Boot Leg of F-Zero. ;)
I'm sure it will look and play nice and all, but if FAST is anything to go by(of course it is!) than i'm expecting another semi-lifeless experience. I wish Shinen would get more creative rather than just sticking with a generic idea/look and making it as polished as possible. How's about creating a slew of funky characters to go with each vehicle?

WaveBoy commented on The Legend of Zelda Monopoly Dated for 15th Se...:

@MAB
True, but it took longer for the AVGN to plummet. Talking classics got stale in a little over a year. The guy started promoting all of this crap, merchandise and creating all of these unfunny characters, trying to get his next big break in the commercial/movie biz. he over did it. heck he's still over doing it. His keith Appicary character isn't even that funny anymore...he's going way too over the top with it now. :P

As for the AVGN, he was the b-bomb during 06-07' he lost his mojo after the amazing Bible games episode. He was at his peak imo with the friday the 13th halloween special. that was easily his all time greatest Nerd vid. These days, he doesn't feel like he's trying that much anymore and he's lost his youthful nerdy look which made him funnier...Now he just looks like some tired boring dude in his mid 30's. :P

@MAB

He's got more talent in funny goop in his bones than the AVGN, but ultimately he lacks charm, he's not interesting at all when he's not in character and his newer episodes are weak. :P He started off strong, but eh. I could watch anything with James rolfe in it.

@MAB
These ZeldaLings most definitely will. I hate Monopoly more than the 2000's no matter what game-related skin it may have. ;) I'd rather play 'Clue' with a Dick Tracey or a mega man skin. Who killed Heat man? Was it in the Furnace? With the Bubble Lead?

WaveBoy commented on Feature: Ten Must Play Titles on the Game Boy:

Super Mario Land 2 just sucks....The stage design and controls were balls then and they're balls now. I'd personally swap it for Wario Land...The shining moment of SML2 was easily wario's castle. The only area with decent stage design structure that had rythem and depth.....everything else? SuperMarioSnoreLand. It had great presentation, fun tunes, wonderful quirky worlds & enemies, but it just played poorly...

Oh and Super C was amazing, easily one the best contra's. ;) Haven't played Kid Dracula, i'll definitely have to check it out.
