WertyYertrew commented on 3DS Ambassador Game Boy Advance Games Revealed:

Okay, so apparently I was right about everything, from the waiting-to-the-last-minute to the inclusion of Minish Cap and Fire Emblem.

I don't know about anybody else, but considering the entire list is composed of some of the GBA's best games, I'd say I'm pretty satisfied with this.



WertyYertrew commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Plans to Fight Back:

Nintendo, five words: Xenoblade, Last Story, Pandora's Tower.

Other than that and leaving the 3DS to third-party developers for three months (which was a massive mistake and should not have happened) not much else to say about Nintendo's year. We all know what's wrong. Now they better take steps to go and fix it.



WertyYertrew commented on Mario Kart 7 Screens Come Up Tails:

"And you get a tail! And you get a tail! Everybody gets a tail!!!"

All this talk about tails makes me wonder what's going on with the Tales of the Abyss remake for the 3DS...



WertyYertrew commented on Review: Sonic Adventure 2: Battle (GameCube):

The Chao gardens have enough detail and care poured into them that they are, effectively, a separate game by themselves. Nothing feels better than finally breeding a shiny normal Chao with all S-rank stats except for when it finally evolves into a Chaos Chao.

Also, I always thought the fast, actiony combat of the Tails/Eggman stages better than the slow, methodical pacing of the Knuckles/Rouge stages, but that's just me.

I agree with the others: this game deserves more than just a six.



WertyYertrew commented on Talking Point: The Most Memorable Nintendo 64 ...:

I started gaming with the N64, and even today it remains one of my favorite gaming systems of all time. The amazing library alone should win it awards, not to mention it introduced the concept of a three-dimensional game.

EDIT: Actually, it didn't (the SNES had quite a few 3d moments itself) but what I meant to say is that it standardized 3D games. Looking at that list, there's really only one 2d platformer on there, and even that's rather obscure.



WertyYertrew commented on Capcom Refused Inafune's MML3 Contract Proposal:

Looks like Dr. Wily's decided the easiest way not to be thwarted in his schemes was to deny Mega Man the ability to be in any games in the first place. Evidently the best way to achieve this goal was to simply take the position of Secret Head Chairman at Capcom. There is no other logical explanation.



WertyYertrew commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's 3DS Press Conference:

The conference, for me, doesn't change anything. I don't feel any less interested in the flood of games coming this holiday season and beyond. I don't feel any more interested in Monster Hunter or the bulky new peripheral. My long wait for any sign of the GBA Ambassador games has not been ceased by this conference. My irritation at investors for demanding cell phone games has not gone away.

That said, the introduction of a new Fire Emblem is pretty cool even if it'll never see the light of day in N.A., and the upcoming Bravely Default I will admit has captured my attention.



WertyYertrew commented on Round Table: The Ambassador NES Games:

I'm trying to get myself to like the NES games but the only game I've ended up liking is Super Mario Bros.... Because the games are free and all, I'll refrain from complaining (honestly people, this compensation is a lot more than what you'd get from other console manufacturers), but those GBA games couldn't come soon enough.



WertyYertrew commented on BIT.TRIP COMPLETE and SAGA Trailer is Hard to ...:

I think the decision between SAGA and COMPLETE has just left me in FLUX: definitely the RUNNER-up to be the hardest decision I could make to fill the VOID of games right now. My FATE with this series seems to lie in the CORE of the extra features.

But portability trumps all so the 3DS version shall BEAT the Wii version .



WertyYertrew commented on Talking Point: The Five Remaining GBA Ambassad...:

I think I said this before, but Minish Cap would be the most awesomerest thing to happen to this Ambassador program. Lately I've also been eying Fire Emblem and Advance Wars. I'm not really sure about Super Mario Advances that aren't Yoshi's Island, though....

I wouldn't hold my breath on Mother 3, Zero Mission, or Final Fantasy either.



WertyYertrew commented on Kirby Makes His Return to Dreamland on 24th Oc...:

That E10 rating better be due to a spectacular fight against Zero's bloody scarred form at the end of the game after collecting all Crystal Heartstar Shards or something....

If that isn't the case, I'd like to punch the ESRB committee in the face for giving a freaking Kirby game an E10 rating and roundhouse kick the director of this game for forsaking the awesomeness of Dark Matter (an entity that is in my opinion the most competent, awesome, and downright evil "villain" in the entire series).

I guess even if we don't get Dark Matter in this game, it wouldn't matter since we still get a Kirby game in the first place.



WertyYertrew commented on Feature: 3DS Games Worth Buying Before Mario:

Bit.Trip Saga: Somehow I missed the whole Bit.Trip boat, so I have this neat little compilation for me to see what it's all about.
Starfox 64 IN 3D!!!: No. The only reason I got Ocarina of Time 3D was the lack of games for the 3DS at the time. If I want a remake of another 64 game on my 3DS, I'll get a used copy of Mario 64 DS (which I hear goes great with the circle pad).
Cave Story 3D: I thought I already had this on my 3DS? O_o;
Pokemon Rumble Blast: I got bored with it when it was a smaller WiiWare game a couple of hours long; why get a retail sequel when the gameplay I got bored with is unchanged?
SMT: Devil Survivor Overclocked Remix: Missed it the first time, so might grab this.



WertyYertrew commented on Nintendo Will Announce Wii U Release Date Next...:

Isn't it grand when Nintendo makes an announcement that the announcement of announcing the announcement of an announced future console's announcement isn't going to be announced until later since they have announced that the announcement will not yet be announced?



WertyYertrew commented on Talking Point: The GBA Games You Want on 3DS V...:

Hm, here I'm thinking the five unrevealed GBA games are
TLoZ: Minish Cap
M&L: Superstar Saga
Advance Wars
Kirby: Nightmare in Dreamland
Fire Emblem

Just my guesses.

As for what I want, refer to the above list and add Golden Sun and all of the other Super Mario Advance remakes. Also Kirby and the Amazing Mirror with wireless multiplayer (online would be nice, but knowing Nintendo...).
