Yai commented on Super Mario Advance 4's e-Reader Levels Get Re...:

I saw these on the Mario Maker subreddit last night. Very dedicated creators and they did a really good job within the limits of Mario Maker.

I'm glad you guys put up an article about this, they deserve the recognition!



Yai commented on Reminder: Club Nintendo Closes in Europe on 30...:

I grabbed the folder and bookmark set. I only had 1600 stars left and wanted another small physical memento!

I had some nice stuff over the years though:

  • Wario Keychain
  • MK7 Banana Cup Trophy
  • Mario and Luigi Hat game pouches
  • 2 different Pikmin 3 keychains (too cute to only get one of these)
  • Yoshi Plush (with the apple)

Maybe a few other things I cannot remember now. I guess the promotions such as New Ambassador 3DS, Paper Mario Sticker Star Sticker Book, Skull Kid Statue and the Smash Soundtracks count though!

It was quite a nice run and I am quite excited to see if the new Club Nintendo can bring such a large variety of rewards and gifts.



Yai commented on Preview: Fabulous Fashion and Questionable Gam...:

It's unfortunate that the online play looks so bad. I was expecting bad single player due to the type of game so that isn't so bad but.. limited lobbies with no way to continue playing with the same group you found that was really fun to be with? That and not even some kind of text chat to co-ordinate in more complex puzzles. Communication is necessary in puzzle solving games even if it isn't voice chat.

Why does everything have to be so limited when it comes to Nintendo and online? At least the local play looks solid.

If I had a bunch of people locally to play this with I would probably get it as the core idea sounds really fun. Hopefully it won't turn off others who want to play it in a group!



Yai commented on Nintendo Hammers Out A New Update For Super Ma...:

Agreeing with a lot here that the automatic levels need some kind of filter. I had 4 of them in 1 100 mario challenge once. The amount of them seems to be increasing as people see them on the top 50 list :C

But on topic of the actual update, is it possible this is setting the stage for DLC? None of the game breaking glitches actually got fixed. (The invincibility glitch and the going through walls thing)



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

Was worried about this when you guys first previewed it. Seems they didn't take the time between then and now to actually add some kind of challenge to the game =(

I LOVE the idea of the game but having no real motivation to make a good home for the animals would just leave me bored very quickly. I was really hoping there would be a rating system with some leniency so you still have some freedom but need to keep to a theme.

Won't be getting this now D:



Yai commented on Super Mario Bros. Inducted Into the World Vide...:

I think all of these choices are well thought out. Doom especially since while wolfenstein was the start of the FPS genre, it wasn't until Doom that it really kicked off.

That game is still amazing to think about.



Yai commented on Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon is Adventuring ...:

YES! Hoping it will be a good entry. Now that they have made a 3D engine and all for the Gates to Infinity they should have little problem working on a deeper story.

I still think the reason the previous game was a bit lacking was the transition to 3D, but they have the groundwork already done this time around.



Yai commented on Say Hello To Star Fox's NES-Based Forerunner, ...:

I wondered where the developers for Croc went. I have been hoping for a rerelease or Croc 3 :c

This is really interesting though! Never knew they tried to make this on NES long before Star Fox came out.



Yai commented on Fantasy Life 2 Is Skipping 3DS In Favour Of Sm...:

Well this is pretty heart breaking =(

Fantasy Life was one of my favourite 3DS games. I was REALLY hoping for another 3DS sequel but now I won't touch it. This kind of game just won't work on a mobile.



Yai commented on Interview: Nintendo and Nd Cube on Bowser, ami...:

I understand why the car exists, but it really ruined the series for me. Now that I have heard it is basically here to stay it looks like no more future buys here.

On the other hand though, I am pretty happy that they tried something new with Bowser Party. That mode sounds like a lot of fun and the one place the car actually works.



Yai commented on Feature: Why We're Still Playing... Monster H...:

I'm at 50 hours. For some reason I had a lot of trouble playing 3U on 3DS, maybe because of the camera (no CCP) and the water fights. Not sure but when I got 4U as a birthday gift I was HOOKED very fast.

I just love killing stuff with friends and hunting those new weapons/armour. And when you kill something that at first felt impossible it is an amazing feeling.

Can see myself playing this for hundreds of hours easily :3



Yai commented on Final Fantasy Creator Hironobu Sakaguchi Reall...:

Understandable thoughts. I quite like how each FF game is quite different.

The only one I really wanted a sequel of was 9. That game was something that really made me emotional. Best FF game I have ever played.



Yai commented on Review: Classic Card Games (3DS eShop):

The lack of multiplayer is quite a shock actually, this is the kind of title where it would be perfect, especially since it is on a handheld.

Quite disappointing.



Yai commented on Sonic Boom Sales Struggle to Explode as Sega C...:

Maybe this will help them realise that making Sonic radically different from what people know it as along with the ridiculous character designs doesn't sell.

I was willing to give it a chance if the gameplay was good, but they even failed on that front. It makes me sad because Sonic and Mario were always the 2 really big platforming rivals and both had great games. Not really a fair contest anymore with stuff like this happening.



Yai commented on Club Nintendo to Close, With Replacement Loyal...:

I'm glad I got that big Yoshi plushie before this was announced. :c

I'm going to miss it, even though EU didn't have game downloads we got a lot of nice merchandise over the years. Thanks Nintendo for keeping it as long as you did.

Hopefully the replacement will be worth losing CN!
