Whopper744 commented on Mario History: Mario Kart 64 - 1997:

"It's argued by many to this day that the 16-bit original is the superior title", shoot, I'm not sure I've ever heard that. I love the original too, but the N64 title did just about everything right. I miss the exploration aspect of it more than anything....and the toys from Toys'R'Us I had were pretty cool....and that Taco Bell toy.



Whopper744 commented on Mario History: Mario Party - 1998:

Shoot I loved this one. I've enjoyed them all actually except the GBA one was a bit odd. This game is where I really started picking up Yoshi as my favorite all time character more than anything else too.



Whopper744 commented on Rumour: Fresh Sources Suggest Shovel Knight Is...:

I will be ok with this.
On a side note, this helped me remember why I quit looking at /r/smashbros. This stuff gets diwnvoted while articles about the life of this dude who has nothing else to do but play Smash for 20 hours a day are Super popular.



Whopper744 commented on Mario History: Super Mario World - 1991:

My first game ever and favorite Mario game. I love every time I see a reference to it.
On a side note that screenshot up top isn't from the game. It looks like a hack or something someone made mixing in some SMB3 elements.



Whopper744 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Dismissal of Chris P...:

Interesting read. I dream of being able to work for them in some neat way one day, despite feeling trapped in the black hole that is WV, so I can only imagine the pain he is dealing with. I pray and hope the best for his family too.
Some things he said did make me wonder about the whole localization process a bit more. I wish NA and the other regions were just as big if a priority to them, but it doesn't always seem th is way. I've complained about NOA before, but I wonder how much if it is plain out out of their control due to what Japan says they can and can't do.



Whopper744 commented on Mario Memories: How Super Mario Land Made Me A...:

I wish they would be a but more unique with there theming and such now like they were with this game. It's short, and not as great as it's sequel (one of my favorite handheld games), but it's still another worthwhile Mario title, and use find myself picking it up on my 3DS now from time just for a quick play through



Whopper744 commented on Nintendo Download: 13th August (North America):

Hm. Pandoras Tower looks like a cool addition but I'm not sure it's my kind if game personally. Glad to see the VC library grow a little on Wii U though. The 3DS VC has been abandoned. At least Sonic 2 is coming next month. It'd a shame since Nintendo has so much they could be doing with the VC right now.



Whopper744 commented on Super Mario Maker's eShop Pre-Load is Live in ...:

Tough luck Europe? At least they are getting a special edition that comes with one if the Mario amiibos. Hope they are enjoying Yoshi Woolly World too.

Reloading is helpful to save time later on at least for those who want digital. I want that book though.



Whopper744 commented on Nintendo's Awesome Super Mario Maker Overview ...:

Then game looks fantastic.
To those talking about the Gold and Silver Mario amiibos, they act just like a regular Mario in every game but Mario Part 10, in which they can make Mario look Gold or Silver in amiibo party, but you can unlock this in the game without the amiibo.



Whopper744 commented on Nintendo Not Looking To Churn Out Yearly Seque...:

Tried my best to read too much into this and hope there was a hint at more Mario Kart 8 DLC on the way.

I'd prefer them to do it this way than.release a new Kart for example, each year. It's cheaper than another $60 and it makes these games stay fresh. Though this summer has had no releases since Splatoon in NA, updates in Splatoon and Smash have helped.



Whopper744 commented on Poll: We Want Your Views on Splatoon Version 2.0:

I think the splatfest are great. Adds a lot of energy to the game. My wife and I even had a babysitter for the morning yesterday just to play it and some housework when the other was playing. My team lost this time, but she won! I hope they do these for a long time to come.
Another plus is its the only.time we can.just play regional, which I'd.always prefer.
Oh and Private Battles were much needed. Too many super advanced techy hardcore strangers at times. Nice to just play with friends.



Whopper744 commented on Masahiro Sakurai Tackles Criticisms of Bonus F...:

The internet has to have something to complain about. I'm sure the maker of the Smash Bros series knows all about that. Goodness forbid the game mechanics but a little different in games that were released like 13 years apart.



Whopper744 commented on Nintendo Download: 6th August (North America):

Only Golden Sun game I've got is the last one. only like 2 hours in but I feel kind of like I missed something...or a lot. I've got too much on my Wii U right now to download the others. My 3DS is needing some attention though. Not like a new game besides Fire Emblem is on the way.How about some VC??



Whopper744 commented on Soapbox: It's A Tragedy That Rare Replay Isn't...:

If Rare could actually do so and they released these on all three major consoles, I wonder if it would do best on the Wii U, despite the lower install base. I know for one I have a lot of nostalgia for their games if nothing else would lead me to buy them again, and the few here I've never got to try out. It's a real shame Banjo never shows up on Nintendo systems anymore. I think I'm still not over that. Glad to see Yooka-Laylee coming at least from Playtonic.



Whopper744 commented on Guide: How to Get the Most Out of Super Smash ...:

No local tourneys seems crazy to me. What stopped them from making a bracket local tourney like they did in Melee and Brawl? I play way more local than online anyway. Kind of feel like with online being so big one local fun is taking a hit. Seems like an easy addition. I'm not in the business though.



Whopper744 commented on Team17 Is Publishing Yooka-Laylee And Wants To...:

With the amount I spent on the Kickstarter, I wish I could have went with a physical copy of everything but it was just too much. At least I got the shirt. Now since I don't have a PC, I'm not sure what to do about that digital artbook...I really wanted that physical more than anything since I can look at pictures online anyway.



Whopper744 commented on Super Smash Bros. Is Getting A Massive Update ...:

I love everything here...except I am disappointed that K Rool may only be a costume now. I wonder what we will get from the ballot if that's the case. I just hope it's not a particular anime looking guy that I've heard alot vote for. Not my thing personally.



Whopper744 commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS eShop Games of 2015 -...:

I wish there was some sort of 'Splatoon Lite' perhaps for 3DS eShop. It could be maybe some single player challenges, or just a smaller version of online and local multiplayer to have on the go that you could connect to your main save file to get more exp, money, etc. It would definitely have to have some things to do offline though. I usually can't play my 3DS online since I'm not home when I play it most of the time.
Not really sure where that came from.



Whopper744 commented on Video: This Trailer For Super Mario Maker Is R...:

I hate to stir the pot but I've heard that whole thing about 100 premade levels on the disc is not true. I can't find the source at the moment but you all might want to check on that.
Anyway, this was a very well done trailer. My best gaming memories are mostly something Mario related.



Whopper744 commented on Mario Kart 8 Soundtrack CD Club Nintendo Rewar...:

There are about three things that Nintendo is doing right now that's in the top of the homepage somewhere that NoA has no part of, and this is one of them. I hate to whine, but why on earth can this available in NA (and not a NWS exclusive). I'd pay money for the darn thing. Now my only options are paying probably at least $40 on eBay for it and I'm not doing that for a CD, even if it is awesome



Whopper744 commented on Nintendo Explains Reasoning Behind Upcoming Mi...:

I know this is not realistic, but I wish there was a way you could have the label of adult or minor, and could block the other if wanted. I feel strange when I find out I've commented on a kids post, and I hate when I'm trying to have a conversation about a game and some kid comments with 'hi' or a scribbled drawing 3 different times.



Whopper744 commented on Genyo Takeda The Likely Choice For Nintendo Pr...:

It makes sense, even though I've always been a big Miyamoto fan. I don't think he'd want the job anyway honestly. I haven't done much research honestly on this guy honestly, though I've probably played games he's been involved with for years. Just not a name you hear as much.
