XCWarrior commented on Nintendo Download: 1st October (North America):

A few things I'll be waiting for reviews on, and might finally pick up Citzens of Earth on discount. Still mad at myself I didn't get a new eshop card at Best Buy a few weeks back when they were on sale.



XCWarrior commented on Video Game Voice Actors Contemplate Strike Act...:

@Haiassai I hate when athletes, actors, and other rich people go on strike demanding more money. And I don't understand why poor people defend the rich people who want to be richer. Other people are skill enough to do the same job for less money. I want Nintendo to make money each year, so just hire someone that can speak good English and I'm fine. B/c gameplay > everything else.

My name is XC - Cross Country + Warrior - mascot of my HS. Like Xenoblade, but no tie there.



XCWarrior commented on Video Game Voice Actors Contemplate Strike Act...:

@Caryslan You do know the Star Fox cast was Nintendo staff they just picked to voice the actors, right? And there is no better dialogue in the history of media - TV, movie, videogames, radio, etc - as amazing as the Star Fox 64 dialgoue? So no, you really can find anyone to do the voice work.

Gameplay > everything else.

And most video game stories are so bad, we all wish they'd higher high school students do them, because it would be an improvement.



XCWarrior commented on Video Game Voice Actors Contemplate Strike Act...:

Most unnecessary thing in video games? Voice actors.

Legend of Zelda and Mario are some of the best franchises of all time - one never speaks, the other one only knows about 20 words.

Less is more. Fire them all and just hire homeless people off the streets who will just ask for food to do the voice acting.



XCWarrior commented on Retailers In North America Merge Wii U & 3DS L...:

Retailers are smashing all the Nintendo stuff onto one shelf to free up space for other stuff that will sell better than the WiiU stuff will....

Or you can spin it like you did.

I love Nintendo but the writing is on the wall - they are losing shelf space, but in a very artistic way.



XCWarrior commented on Review: Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal World Duel Carnival (3DS):

@TheNumberHunter @RabidPikachu You two are like the only ones that commented about actually playing the game, and both seem to like it.

The game is currently on sale, anyone else have opinions on the game and is worth it for $10? Was a fan of the original cartoon, had one of the GBA games, but haven't played in awhile. The lack of MP really doesn't bother me, the cut in content hurts but I bet its more content than the GBA game I played long ago (and hopefully smarter AI).



XCWarrior commented on Save Data Hackers Top Competition Leaderboards...:

At this point POkemon Shuffle is probably on auto pilot omaybe one perosn is making sure the events go up and the server is working. They'll get around to fixing this if they feel like it. I'm amazed people are still playing it in such high mass numbers.



XCWarrior commented on Review: Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer (...:

I listened to nintendoworldreport's Radio Free Nintendo podcast, and they slammed this game for lack of difficulty, no persistence, and monetization with the amiibo cards.

So the fact that you guys have this game is a 7 instead of a 1 is quite mind boggling. It sounds dreadful in every sense of the word - and I sunk 100+ hours into ACNL.



XCWarrior commented on This Is The Last Real Console Cycle, Proclaims...:

So did I miss something guys? ARE SMART PHONES FREE?

What a moron. People spend hundreds of dollars multiple times of year to upgrade their iphone6 to a iphone6s then to the iphone6z then the iphone6giveusyourmoneyagain only to fully ready to upgrade to iphone7sucka without a second thought.

Consoles aren't going anywhere anytime soon. It's just phones are the new main handheld, that's all.

Remember when phones were for talking to people? Those were the days!



XCWarrior commented on Nintendo Download: 17th September (North America):

More Shovel Knight is a glorious thing. If you have not bought this game yet folks, do it. It's amazing. Probably my 3rd favorite game I've played this year behind Super Mario Maker and Splatoon.

I'll get the Legend of Legacy Demo as well, and waiting on reviews for some of the indy games.



XCWarrior commented on Guide: Unlocking Building Items And More In Su...:

@Kirk Agree to a point. I started making a level last night, but eventually I just went back to playing levels. I love finding challenges, and love that Nintendo Life has set up a great community for the game. I'm sure I'll make a level or two eventually, but there's not much of a challenge you can create for yourself, because you are also creating the solution at the same time.



XCWarrior commented on Tatsumi Kimishima Named As New Nintendo President:

His dead serious look gives the impression he doesn't even bother taking names, he simply kicks ass.

And he also doesn't do Nintendo Directs. If they do any more - and I still stand by my belief he won't - he'll guess start for one to introduce himself, and Reggie takes over them for NOA at least.



XCWarrior commented on Dragon Quest VIII and 3DS Overtaken by Metal G...:

Nintendo and Playstation games almost even split in terms of quantity in the top 20.

I think Super Mario Maker will do well in Japan, but maybe not as well as people think. Mario seems to sell better in America anymore than Japan, but maybe being able to create levels will change that.



XCWarrior commented on Rumours and Speculation Stir Over Potential In...:

Really doubt for this one to be true. Not a huge Apple fan outside of my 6 year old ipod, so this would not be great news. My wife's iPhone normally is asking for me to throw it into the wall to be quiet and can't hold a charge to save its life.



XCWarrior commented on Some Western Splatoon Players Would Prefer Not...:

Good grief people. GET GOOD.

I'm not even good, but I know it's because I can't devote time to the game. Japanese players have great quick Twitch ability - I can kill most American Tetris players but not Japanese players.

Stop being such whiny babies and take your lumps like a man.



XCWarrior commented on Review: VS. Excitebike (Wii U eShop / NES):

@faint They rebuild these games with each having their own emulator. WHy not take a little extra time and add something to it?

But as I stated somewhere else, I would have rather they just updated World Rally from the WiiWare shop.



XCWarrior commented on Review: Super Mario Maker (Wii U):

Already reserved. I know you guys don't hand out 10s often, but this is well deserved. It's too bad WiiU didn't launch with this game and Splatoon, it's fortunes would have been much different.



XCWarrior commented on Review: Devil's Third (Wii U):

So the online is pretty decent. The review is way too long guys... but at least it might mean the game is salvagable, but not at full price.



XCWarrior commented on Review: ZaciSa: Defense of the Crayon Dimensio...:

I've sunk over 30 hours into the game since the NA release. I give it a solid recommendation, especially now with online leaderboards. It's a good time killer and something you can easily play while watching Netflix because it does a good job with Gamepad only use. I'd give it a solid 7.5.



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

@carlos82 Well Mrs. Negative Nancy, I think Star Fox looks great, and certainly think Star Wars Battlefront looks like a game which will only be fully unlocked after you get thorugh all the extra pay walls.

I played the Zelda Tri Force Demo the week of E3, it's good fun and even with 2 people I enver met, we were able to work together well.

People are going to buy Animal crossing, even if you two don't.

Pokemon is a spin off, but again, some people will buy it.

Don't downplay Xenoblade. Anyone who plays it is going to get a lot more game time out of that than they will Super Mario Marker.

I have Mario Maker preordered, but it's like #4 on my most wanted games for the end of the year, behind Star Fox, Xenoblade and even Yokai Watch, b/c that is a new IP and a fresh take on the Pokemon concept. There is probably a reason it outsells POkemon in Japan currently, and Pokemon is selling well.

I think it's time you keep a open mind on the other stuff coming.... cause we are all ignoring good eshop games coming, like Runbow today.
