Yosher commented on Majora’s Mask 3D Patch Irons out Honey & Dar...:

In all honesty, I kinda hope they don't patch the different mask-related glitches (if they didn't already; I think the Honey & Darling glitch is unrelated.. though I'm not exactly sure what this glitch is). Those mask ones were pretty funny, and it's especially fun being able to use Fierce Deity everywhere!



Yosher commented on Xenoblade Chronicles 3D HOME Theme Emerges, Fr...:

Why not for those who purchase the game seperately in an actual store? Why do you HAVE to have a digital version of a game to be eligible for a free home theme? Ugh. Never was a fan of digital stuff but geez, way to push it down everyone's throat even more.



Yosher commented on Review: Blek (Wii U eShop):

I may get this on sale sometime, €5,- seems a little steep for this one in all honesty. It does look interesting, but more like €2,- interesting.



Yosher commented on Pokémon Shuffle Available to Download Right N...:

Yeah I downloaded it, but won't be paying for any gems. Terrible idea. Hope this doesn't become a standard in Nintendo games, or even Pokémon games. Just imagine what the main Pokémon games would look like...
''Oh dear, you're almost defeated by the CHAMPION! Would you like to buy an item to heal your POKéMON?''
.... I shudder at the thought!



Yosher commented on Guide: How to Complete a System Transfer from ...:

Currently transferring, and dear God is this a slow process. Been sitting here for 15 minutes and it's not even close to 25%.

I also heard that it doesn't transfer save data. Is this true? I don't want to lose all my game progress.



Yosher commented on Nintendo Goes Big With Videos for New Nintendo...:

Man, I just can't look at the small New 3DS anymore without feeling bad for America for not getting it at all. I know several people who won't buy a New 3DS at all. Meanwhile I'm grateful that I live in Europe, and can get a small one.

Concerning Monster Hunter, though.. I tried it on the Wii, 3DS, and Wii U, but I'm afraid it's just not my type of game. I do hope it sells well, though, it's definitely a good game/series!



Yosher commented on GameStop Pushes Back Some Wave 3 amiibo Pre-Or...:

All this amiibo news affecting US consumers really makes me feel lucky about where I live. I live within walk-distance of a gamestore, where they get all the amiibo, and so far have had no trouble with supplying these toys to me. Aside from Marth, Wii Fit Trainer and Villager that is, due to me not expecting them to be so rare and thus not having pre-ordered them at the time.

I feel sorry for all you amiibo-hunters in the US, really. :(



Yosher commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D ...:

I could never really get into the original Majora's Mask because I simply couldn't really get into the 3-day time cycle gimmick. I didn't play it on an N64 though, but rather on the Zelda GameCube Collector's Edition disc, which made the game kinda laggy at points, which was also kind of annoying and put me off as well.
So, either way, I always said to myself that IF the game would receive a remake, I would give it another chance. So, here we are. I'm gonna give this game another shot, and hopefully it'll be a better experience for me this time around!



Yosher commented on Rumour: Wave 3 amiibo Release Dates Revealed f...:

That's.. pretty odd, to devide them this way. I wonder why. In Europe, these are released in simply 2 'waves' with a month apart. I got one half today, and will get the other half next month. I was also a little confused why there were only 8 amiibo listed there, but then I remembered the store exclusive ones... sorry for you Americans who have to deal with that crap.



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

I take it the Japanese Club Nintendo will go, too?

What I'd give away for Club Nintendo in a heartbeat anyway, is a program that allows you to download games for free on one system so long as you have it for another system. So, if you'd have Super Mario Bros downloaded on Wii U, you can get it for free on 3DS. ..there was a name for this but I forgot it. :P



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

I really wonder what the new loyalty programme will hold. At least we won't have to worry about expiration dates on our stars/coins anymore. Either way, it's sad to see Club Nintendo go. It was introduced over here in Europe during the GameCube era, and I stepped in relatively early. I managed to snag a relatively good haul during the time it was going.

Also sad that they never released a Flower and Star Cup trophy to complete the Mario Kart cup trophies though, it feels like an incomplete set right now! Maybe I'll have those custom-made sometime, if possible.



Yosher commented on Poll: As amiibo Expands and Evolves, Which Fea...:

I wanna get them all. Both the Super Mario and Smash Bros collection of amiibo figures. I don't even care that much about the game compatibility; that's mostly an extra for me, personally. At least, until there's something truly interesting that can be done with these amiibo.



Yosher commented on Resident Evil 4 Was Almost A Very Different Ex...:

I just can't look at anything Resident Evil right now without being sad that Revelations 2 is skipping the Wii U, after having a great deal of fun with the first. On both 3DS and Wii U. I've seen this stuff years ago anyway.



Yosher commented on Hundreds of Limited Edition Majora's Mask New ...:

@Hy8ogen I don't think you can blame people who buy from scalpers. If somebody REALLY wants to have something like this, and it's the ONLY way to obtain one of these anymore, then of course they're going to HAVE to buy from these scalpers.

So yeah, it is what it is, and it -is- the fault of those scalpers. And partly Nintendo's for making this one so awfully limited. And I think something needs to be done to stop this kind of stuff from happening.



Yosher commented on Gallery: Feast Your Eyes on the Super Mario an...:

Man, seeing that Ness amiibo just makes me wish all the more that Lucas was still in the game. I haven't played his game myself, but I've seen someone else play through it, and it just made me love the little guy. Hope he'll return as DLC and still get his own amiibo that way as well.

Either way, I'll (try to) get all these amiibo!



Yosher commented on Nintendo's amiibo Website and Compatibility Ch...:

@Shadowkiller97 They mentioned that they were planning to release multiple style amiibo of the same character from the very beginning though, I think. Besides, what's the big deal, really? You just get to pick your favourite version of that character this way. If you don't like the more generic looking ones of the Super Mario line, then just buy the Smash Bros version. It's all about options, I'd say. And I'd like a Yarn Yoshi-style Yoshi amiibo too, but I think that was never really a realistic expectation in the first place.



Yosher commented on Nintendo Direct Confirmed for 14th January, Wi...:

Here's hoping for some Yoshi Woolly World news. Hopefully we'll get a Woolly Yoshi pre-order bonus for it!

Otherwise looking forward to news from both Zelda games, Mario Maker, and Splatoon. Oh, and possible release dates for some of the Super Smash Bros DLC that they promised, and maybe a first glance at Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 2 (in video form, that is). And some information on what amiibo support holds for games like Captain Toad, Yoshi's Woolly World, Mario Party 10, and others.

Aside from all that, maybe a fun little surprise or two. Maybe we'll finally get an update on the Fire Emblem x Shin Megami Tensei game that they announced two years ago?



Yosher commented on Reminder: Club Nintendo New 3DS Ambassador Pro...:

@FritzFrapp I just tried again just now after you mentioned it just to be sure, but no change. I'll have to miss out on it, despite being one of the 'lucky' ones to receive an e-mail. I honestly don't understand why they can't make use of other payment methods. Very amateuristic, I think. But, oh well, c'est la vie.



Yosher commented on Reminder: Club Nintendo New 3DS Ambassador Pro...:

@MJKOP I don't know if that's just for your country then or something, but I only had the option to use a credit card. I even e-mailed Nintendo asking if there was any other payment option I could use, and the response I got from them also said that I can ONLY use a credit card to pay for it. No PayPal or whichever other payment option, only credit card.



Yosher commented on Reminder: Club Nintendo New 3DS Ambassador Pro...:

@scamander Nobody I know has a credit card. Shouldn't even be a problem in the first place if Nintendo would get with the times and allowed multiple ways of payment. But that's just Nintendo being Nintendo sadly. Sorry to hear you're left out entirely though.



Yosher commented on Nintendo of America Partners Up With Apex 2015...:

@Kasplat I think Project M has its unbalanced shenanigans going on as well.
I really doubt Project M is so favoured because of so-called 'rebalancing', but rather because people are so stuck on Melee's physics that they just can't adjust to the newer game's physics. Melee fans can be really annoying when they keep bashing the newer Smash games because of all kinds of stuff, like them being slower, lack of wavedashing and whatnot, and in my eyes, Project M is the basically by-product of all that bashing because it 'fixes' Brawl's issues, when in reality, they're just creating entirely new issues themselves, and some of the things they 'fixed' didn't even need fixing in the first place.

That, and they pretty much completely ignored the PAL players until recently when they announced they'd be bringing it to PAL regions. Only took them, like, 4 whole years. So yeah, sorry Project M, but you're far, far too late in my book. And I think Smash Bros 4 (at LEAST on Wii U) is just as competitively viable, if not moreso, than Project M.

I'm sure they'll bring the game back anyway, when Nintendo leaves the scene again.



Yosher commented on Nintendo of America Partners Up With Apex 2015...:

Nobody here prefers new official games over a hack to make a game play similar to another game from over 10 years ago?

.. kay, guess I'm the only one. Gimme Smash 64, ACTUAL Melee, Brawl or Smash 4 over Project M any day of the week. Only good thing that came out of that hack, IMO, were the alternate outfits.

That aside, it's good to see Nintendo doing this kind of stuff more! Wonder if Nintendo of Europe will do something similar sometime.



Yosher commented on Review: Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario Wor...:

@Kirby_Fan_DL3 It really is one of the best games ever if you ask me, though. Maybe I'm just biased because it's the first game I ever owned (as part of the Super Mario All-Stars cartridge), but it certainly is a timeless classic, IMO. :) I don't understand how someone who likes Mario games a lot, doesn't like Super Mario World at all. But, everyone's free to their own opinion.
