Yosher commented on Talking Point: That Paper Mario: The Thousand-...:

Would love to see this getting a remake, don't care whether it's for 3DS or Wii U (but Wii U would be slightly higher preferred). I just need something to wash away the bad taste that Sticker Star left!



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.



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

@HADAA I honestly haven't seen many people say they enjoyed the car mechanic. Everyone I know in person, and 90% of the people I know online -and- from what I've seen posted around on message boards and whatnot, I see people constantly complaining about the car mechanic, and just a select few people actually saying that they DID like the car mechanic. It's such a minority group that I truly wonder why they decided to bring this awful mechanic back. If you can prove me wrong though, and you can show me that it IS popular, then please go right ahead. I'm just going by what I've seen people saying about this game (and Mario Party 9) and barely any of it was positive, but I'd be happy to admit I'm wrong.

And I think I need to ask a better question too, then. Like, ''Why did you choose the car mechanic again, instead of trying to think of other ways to keep everyone involved while they wait for their turn?'' Something like that. Just.. something that will tell them that the car mechanic is not something players are waiting for.

Honestly, in my opinion, the only good things about this game are a few of the minigames and the Photo Studio. The rest is complete bogus and dull. amiibo Party is a throwback to how the series used to be but the boards there are so... ugh.



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

Why does nobody every ask the right questions? The one question that, IMO, SHOULD have been asked, is: ''There weren't many fans of the car mechanic that was introduced in Mario Party 9. Why did you decide to stick with this idea?''

And yes I know the car mechanic IS discussed in the interview, I just want to know WHY they decided to keep such a generally hated thing. Ugh, I wish Mario Party would go back to being individual movement again. When it was still fun.



Yosher commented on eShop Games Added To The European Club Nintend...:

I think it's odd that they're offering GBA games on 3DS too. They're just some of the ones from the Ambassador collection, but still. Either way, I already have those on my 3DS, and there's nothing else that really catches my eye and I think is worth the amount of stars they're asking for it. I'll wait out on some more physical goodies!



Yosher commented on Nintendo Download: 19th March (Europe):

Nothing for me really. Though I'll get Mario Party 10 through retail. Still 100% certain that retail > digital. For me personally, anyway.

@manu0 I haven't heard anything about it being delayed, so I'd guess it still comes the 20th, yes. I don't think such updates are generally mentioned in these overviews.



Yosher commented on Talking Point: It's Time for a Nintendo Direct...:

I would like:

  • Woolly World info and release date (even if it's just, like, 'Summer 2015' or something)
  • Smash Bros DLC release date(s)
  • Info on amiibo stock (if only to stop scalpers to an extent)
  • Info and possibly release date for Mario Maker
  • Some good 3rd party game announcements, along with indie announcements
  • New Pokémon game announcement (if it's Pokémon Z; if it's a completely new generation, then it's more of an E3 announcement)
  • A little bit of Mario Kart 8 DLC info, and possibly the announcement of DLC Packs 3 and 4, with another pre-order bonus in the form of the Yoshi/Shy Guy colors, but for Koopa Troopa and Toad. One pack HAS to include Kirby, just to make up for the Smash Bros Rosalina trailer
  • Update on Splatoon, with release date, and if not that, then at least a release window or info on why it's delayed

I'd like more than that obviously, like an F-Zero announcement, but I think this would be plenty for a 'regular' Nintendo Direct. Should save something for E3!

Also damnit, seeing this at the top of the page made me think there was a new Direct announced!



Yosher commented on Video: Here’s How amiibo Will Work in Captai...:

Uhm. Yeah. This isn't really something I'd get an amiibo for. I was planning on getting the Toad amiibo anyway though, but this is kinda.. uhm.. I 'unno. I don't really see what the point is! I hope you get something extra if you manage to find them all. Even if it's just an extra costume/color for Toad.



Yosher commented on TEMBO THE BADASS ELEPHANT, The Game Freak and ...:

I... uhm.. I don't know. I can't help but feel a little bit betrayed, even with the knowledge that GameFreak isn't fully part of Nintendo.

I don't even wanna play Pokémon anymore for a while. Thanks, GameFreak.



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.
