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!



Yai commented on Eon Ticket StreetPass Relay Announced for Pok...:

As usual they design events that only work in cities. It's very frustrating that they never think of people who live in towns or rural places. ._.

Just once I'd like a pokémon game where I can actually get all of the available content.



Yai commented on Review: Donkey Kong Country (Wii U eShop / Sup...:

This game was really difficult for me when I first played it. I was quite young but I remember the secret Orangatang level and Tree Tops were both nightmares to complete!

Loved every moment though, easily one of my favourite platformers on the SNES. The second game was even better, cannot wait for it! (Didn't like the third though, the lack of DK and Diddy upset me D:)



Yai commented on Review: Donkey Kong Land (3DS eShop / Game Boy):

This was my first ever Gameboy game! I have the Banana Edition Gameboy which came with this game. Played it to death until eventually getting 100%.

I was rather small at the time so it kept me entertained for months. Sadly it breaks on GBA upwards, weird lines appear all over the enemies and Kongs. :c

Works great on the original Gameboy and Gameboy colour though.



Yai commented on Review: Fantasy Life (3DS):

Pre-ordered this after reading this. It looked really interesting at E3 and this just sealed the deal for me. Looking forward to next Friday!



Yai commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

Can't say I'm very happy about it. It's nice they realised that the orignal design had problems but increasing the hardware specs alienates owners of the older models entirely.

They didn't go this far with the DSi if I remember right. All main releases worked on regular old DS still.



Yai commented on Mario Kart 8 Speeds Past The Two Million Copie...:

Good to hear! I play Mario Kart 8 on and off still. Off TV play is great for doing family multiplayer since we have multiple Wii Us and can just gather in 1 room with our gamepads. (I know there is splitscreen but this works well for us)



Yai commented on Review: Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training: How Ol...:

I'm really grateful they gave this away for free, it is one of the few titles on the DS I completely missed somehow and is actually quite enjoyable in small bursts.

Sadly I have an asian accent so it doesn't recognise my speech (so I can relate to that part of the review). I had no problem with it detecting my handwriting though.



Yai commented on Masahiro Sakurai Teases Trophy Rush Mini-Game ...:

Looks good. The coin launcher wasn't exactly that fun in Brawl. I do hope the Wii U version is going to get some of these features or at least something big to make up for not getting Smash Run.



Yai commented on Shin Megami Tensei IV Confirmed For Q3 eShop R...:

And Europe is shafted yet again. Wonder if we will ever get Rune Factory 4... Been waiting for ages for even an announcement :(

I might still get this when it releases but no physical is annoying.



Yai commented on Talking Point: The Legend of Zelda on Wii U Ca...:

The masks could be interesting to see come back. I have no problem with them reusing mechanics if it is done in a good way and not to be gimmicky.

Looking forward to seeing if they reveal a Zelda U at E3 though, they may have even more wacky ideas than this!
