Yosher commented on Feature: Go Fast - An Ode To The Glorious Chao...:

I'm definitely not getting my hopes up. I personally don't see the recent F-Zero stuff in NintendoLand and Mario Kart as a sign of a new game coming, but more as something like Nintendo throwing F-Zero fans a bone. Like, if the NintendoLand and Mario Kart stuff didn't include F-Zero, we likely wouldn't have gotten anything (not counting Smash Bros of course, where F-Zero stuff has been a staple since the very first entry). But that's my personal guess.

Either way I'm not getting my hopes up too much. If we get a new F-Zero, WONDERFUL! If not, then.. yeah, expected.



Yosher commented on Review: New Super Mario Bros. (Wii U eShop / DS):

I almost kind of wish this game never happened, because for me, it kinda signals the end of the 2D Mario games that each had their own unique graphical style. But it's still a fun game, and I enjoyed playing it on the DS.



Yosher commented on More Club Nintendo Goodies Coming To The Europ...:

Aww, here I was hoping they would have released the Flower and Star cup trophies as well! I already have all the ones shown there.

Oh well. I'm not sure if I really want anything else from here. Maybe the Toad lamp, maybe the goodbye coin... if only I knew if there was something Yoshi related coming, I would certainly save my Stars for that!



Yosher commented on Sit Tight, Nintendo Will Announce Its E3 2015 ...:

I'm probably the only one who can't really get excited for an announcement like this. Maybe that'll change once they revealed their plans. Punch-Out isn't something that excites me in the least though. It's fun, but I think it's kind of overrated.

We'll see what they'll come up with.



Yosher commented on You Don't Need A Yoshi amiibo To Unlock Stuff ...:

Haha, I wonder which of all of those amiibo will be usable for this game. I can already imagine a Captain Falcon-themed Yoshi running around.

By the way.. why would you want to save a Yoshi design to an amiibo? Are these designs not automatically unlocked, so you'd simply be able to select those in-game? ..or are you able to MAKE your own custom Yoshi design? If it's not the latter, then I really wonder what the point is for this.



Yosher commented on PAL Gamers Can Brighten Their Day With This Cl...:

Hrmm. I'm gonna hold off on spending my stars for now until something more suited for me comes along (hopefully). This is definitely better than most things that've been in the catalogue over the past few years though.



Yosher commented on Preview: Unraveling the Truth in Yoshi's Wooll...:

Yeah, I never really knew Baby Mario bugged people so much either. Like, I knew people thought he was annoying, but to wish the mechanic didn't exist at all? I thought it was a very interesting mechanic! I'm of course very happy that Yoshi is getting a game all of his own without Baby Mario again (and one that looks to be coming close to the awesomeness of the original for once!), but I really wouldn't have minded if they kept Baby Mario in here. To me, it always just gives this extra sense of emergency to hear him cry when you lose him, and not because it's annoying, but rather because 'oh no, Baby Mario is crying! Quick, save him!'.

...that said, I didn't think I would have said this before I started reading/watching this preview, but you guys left me even MORE stoked for this game than I already was! Being the huge Yoshi fan I am, I was already super stoked for this game, but hearing some of the features mentioned in this preview (such as unlocking new designs for Yoshi; really did not see this coming!), and all the praise it gets in general, really gets me pumped for this game.

I am definitely one of those fans who has been waiting for a new game in this series that would match the quality of the original, ever since I did play the original. I still find it funny that, when I saw my sister playing that, I thought it looked 'too kiddy'. Heheh, kids, y'know, I wasn't even 10 years old I think. Nowadays, after having still played it way back in the day despite its kiddy looks, it's one of my most favourite, if not MOST favourite games of all time, and the adorable crayon visuals are now a big part of that as well. And from the looks and sound of it, I can say with almost 100% certainty that the same will happen to Yoshi's Woolly World! I'm really stoked for this one, and I can't wait to get my hands on it, along with the three Yarn Yoshi amiibo. <3



Yosher commented on Rumour: More Super Smash Bros. Code Digging Po...:

Can these rumours stop? It's getting really annoying at this point, seeing all these types of rumours and 'leaks' going around, only to have them debunked later on, or if they turn out to be true, have them potentially ruin the surprise.



Yosher commented on Review: Yoshi's Island DS (Wii U eShop / DS):

This game, unlike NEW Island, is still indeed a pretty fun game, even if it's not as good as the original SNES/GBA version. This game was also the very reason I was kinda fearful on Artoon/Arzest getting their hands on Yoshi's new game though, and those fears were right when New Island came out.

But anyway, this game still really isn't all that bad. There's still plenty of fun to be had here, and is still one of Yoshi's better games! A mandatory game for Yoshi fans, surely, and still a solid recommendation for any fan of platforming games.



Yosher commented on Review: Yoshi Touch & Go (Wii U eShop / DS):

I have this on DS, and it's actually pretty fun if you ask me.. for a high-score game. I just can't imagine this one working so well on the Wii U, when you need to switch between both screens almost constantly. I suppose the one with the sideways view with both screens on the Gamepad will work, though. Either way, it'd be fun if something like this would be included as a minigame in (some) future Yoshi game(s). Can't really recommend this as a VC game though... unless it comes on 3DS VC at some point or something.



Yosher commented on Reminder: New StreetPass DLC Games Offer a 'Th...:

@Barely_Able Yeah, no kidding. Nintendo's been doing so well with DLC and its pricing, too, and then this comes around. Really strange. But oh well, maybe it'll go on sale sometime and only be a single dollar/euro/pound/whatever. That's not too bad of a price for it.



Yosher commented on Reminder: New StreetPass DLC Games Offer a 'Th...:

I'm guessing this doesn't include the VIP thing? At that.. for those who have already purchased it, what exactly does the VIP thing do anyway? You can put Miis in a special VIP room, you can keep track of birthdays, and.. what?



Yosher commented on Diddy Kong Nerfed In Latest Super Smash Bros. ...:

I'm personally kinda glad Diddy got nerfed so much. I'm not a big Diddy fan, and it got really annoying seeing so many Diddies in the competitive scene and winning so many tournaments. Either way, it's not like he got nerfed into oblivion, he's still one of the better characters, so Diddy players really don't need to be so upset over this I think.



Yosher commented on Video: Shovel Knight, Scram Kitty, CommanderVi...:

Hrmm. I'm having trouble seeing what type of game this really is supposed to be. It's got platforming elements, but then I see sections where the characters fight one another almost Smash Bros style? ..confusing.



Yosher commented on Nintendo Download: 16th April (Europe):

I'm definitely getting the Smash Bros DLC, but not yet. I think it's pretty stupid that if you buy the whole package, you don't get a little bit of a discount, but that's probably just me. I'm just going to hold off on buying those costumes for now, at least until Bundle #2 comes, and see if they throw in a discount offer that way. I don't really like the Mii Fighters anyway, so I'm not missing much in that regard.

Also may get Elliot Quest down the line, but I'm not quite sure on that one just yet. I already have a whole bunch of other platforming games I still need to finish as well.



Yosher commented on Poll: Is Splatoon a Blockbuster That'll Help R...:

Provided Nintendo will market this game properly, I can see it doing pretty well. But ONLY if they market it properly. I can't see this doing very well otherwise. I'm sure it'll do pretty well with the current Wii U userbase though, but it'll only sell systems if it's given enough attention. Either way, I'm looking forward to it!



Yosher commented on Poll: Which Characters Do You Want to Win the ...:

Dunno why people want Banjo so badly. He's not part of Nintendo anymore. Please don't get him involved in Smash. Even Snake would be better.

..that said, my vote went for Dillon from Dillon's Rolling Western. He's already an Assist Trophy, you say? Big whoop! Have them pull a Toon Link, where his Assist Trophy doesn't show up when he's in the fight himself. eShop representation is needed here, and Dillon is perfect for that.



Yosher commented on Nintendo Direct Confirmed for 1st April, With ...:

IT'S ABOUT TIME! Man, that seemed like it took forever to get a new Nintendo Direct! But.. that's probably just me. Either way I'm EXCITED!! Hoping for some more Woolly World info, including release date, Mario Kart + SSB4 DLC info, maybe a little bit of info on Zelda Wii U (doesn't need to be a megaton), and some info on Mario Maker. Maybe something specific amiibo-related software too. And of course Splatoon! Augh, is it tomorrow yet?!



Yosher commented on Bandai Namco Celebrates the 20th Anniversary f...:

After the recent disappointment of the Sega x Game Freak collaboration not coming to Nintendo platforms (amongst many other things skipping Nintendo platforms of course), I'm not keeping my fingers crossed for this either. It will be welcome if we WILL get in on the action, but.. yeah.
