Yosher commented on Nintendo Shows Off Its Mario Golf: World Tour ...:

Really not a fan of this kind of day one DLC, but I'll still get it because of all the new courses. I'll mostly use Yoshi anyway, so the added characters are mostly bonus material for me. Why Gold Mario over Metal Mario though?



Yosher commented on Sea Battle Will Bring Battleships to DSiWare:

I don't think I ever truly paid much attention to the DSiShop. The only things I got from there were Flipnote and A Little Bit of Dr. Mario. Oh and the Zelda Four Swords Anniversary thing.



Yosher commented on Nintendo Launches 3DS XL "Recommended Software...:

This is nice and all, but why do they keep doing these things for the 3DS and not the Wii U, the system who needs promotions like this, as opposed to a system that already sells like hotcakes anyway? I don't understand. Sometimes it just seems to me like they WANT the Wii U to fail.



Yosher commented on Feature: Time For a Super Smash Bros. New Chal...:

@Funny_Moblin Yeah, people tend to gear towards those characters who are actually top of the tier lists sadly. Which in turn gives the lower tiers less chance to actually develop their metagames, because hardly anybody plays with them anymore.

And just because a game is easy doesn't mean it can't be fun. Kirby games are usually really easy games in the first place, but that doesn't mean they're not fun. Kirby's Epic Yarn wasn't exactly a triple A game of course, but I still had lots of fun playing through it and enjoying all the visual plays on the yarn theme they had going on in that game, and I intend to do the same with Yarn Yoshi, no matter how easy or hard it'll be.



Yosher commented on Feature: Time For a Super Smash Bros. New Chal...:

@Funny_Moblin I don't know what caused it, all I know is that I love Yoshi! Super Mario World was my first game when I was 6 (well, on the Super Mario All-Stars + SMW cartridge), and I guess Yoshi's just always been my favourite character ever since I laid eyes upon him.

I don't really like Yoshi's New Island either though, but I still adore the original Yoshi's Island and have good hope for Yarn Yoshi to be a gem just because Good-Feel is developing it. As for Yoshi in Melee and Brawl, he's just 'over-looked' because he's not top tier material in those games. If he were top tier, you can bet he'd be used all over the place. ( Yoshi is still my most used character in any Smash game though, and even if Yoshi ends up getting at the bottom of the tier list, I'll still play as him! )



Yosher commented on Feature: Time For a Super Smash Bros. New Chal...:

The only correct answer to that question is Yoshi! Everybody saying otherwise is lying!

.. Okay okay, just kidding, everyone's entitled to their own opinion of course. I love 'em all, but my absolute favourite is definitely the green dinosaur!



Yosher commented on Feature: The Ultimate Super Smash Bros. Direct...:

Just for the fact that they showed Yoshi here made this a worthwhile watch. Of course I was expecting something more groundbreaking than 'just' Yoshi, and they sure did deliver! Can't wait to try out all these modes and characters.



Yosher commented on Emulation Experts M2 Worked With Nintendo On W...:

I just hope they pick up the pace of VC releases at some point. The time they take to distribute all these games is agonizing. Hackers have managed to get tons of old games to run on the Wii, and I just don't see why Nintendo wouldn't be able to do that. Or am I missing something there?



Yosher commented on Preview: Mario Golf: World Tour:

All I'm hoping for is that the Miis won't be overpowered like they were in Mario Tennis Open, and hopefully have WORLDWIDE online mode, and I'll be sure to have a blast with this one.



Yosher commented on Nintendo of Europe Confirms Upcoming Game Boy ...:

It's great that they're bringing GBA games to the Wii U VC of course, but where the heck are all the other consoles that the Wii Shop Channel VC offered? Hackers have already managed to emulate pretty much all NES, SNES, N64 games and whatnot, and even PS1 games I believe. I know that last one won't be officially emulated, but what about N64? Heck, bring the Virtual Boy in there too.



Yosher commented on Feature: Bandai Namco Characters We'd Love to ...:

Pac-Man, most definitely. Just for his iconic status. Mario, Sonic, Megaman and Pac-Man all in the same game? Count me in!

Klonoa is a close runner-up. I'd count Lloyd too, but since the Tales of Symphonia remake is skipping NIntendo systems, Lloyd can go take a hike for all I care.



Yosher commented on Feature: A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and...:

Phosphora takes the cake in this one! Not really a fan of the purple look on the Smash Ball here (it looks really awkward), and all the others aren't that special either screenshot-wise. (Information wise, obviously the SM3DL series of screenshots is the best this week.)



Yosher commented on Review: Yoshi's New Island (3DS):

Man, that's harsh. I guess I was right on this looking unfinished, and this score just seems to confirm it. As a Yoshi fan, it kinda pains me to see DK still getting such awesome high quality platforming games, and Yoshi is left with a mediocre developer for half-assed games like this (and I honestly don't really have much with DK). At least we still have Yarn Yoshi to look forward to, I'm definitely getting that one! ( I got this game too today, but still have to properly play it; only played the first couple of levels so far. )



Yosher commented on Month of Yoshi: The Brightly Coloured History ...:

While I honestly don't think Nintendo will ever be able to top the SNES original (or the GBA remake at that, since that one has 6 new levels), I'm always super stoked whenever a new Yoshi game is announced! Being the Yoshi fan I am, this was a great read for me. The only truly bad Yoshi game in my book is Universal Gravitation (SO much missed potential due to lacking tilt controls). I do hope Yoshi's New Island can get close to the level of awesomeness as the original, but I doubt it'll top it. Either way, I just can't wait to play it on my shiny new Yoshi 3DS XL! And since I'll be transferring my old 3DS stuff from it, I'll have the GBA Ambassador game on it too. Hooray for Yoshi games on Yoshi systems! Now I just need a Yoshi 3DS XL protect case.

As for Yarn Yoshi.. why did Nintendo even mention it last year if they were gonna stay silent on it for so long afterwards? That leads me to believe the game has been cancelled, due to it not seeming like such a priority project right now. Come on Nintendo, don't break a Yoshi fan's heart!



Yosher commented on Interview: Takashi Tezuka on Bringing Yoshi's ...:

Definitely gonna pick this up and gonna play it on my shiny new Yoshi 3DS XL (when I get it next week). So looking forward to it!

And it's always nice to get a little behind-the-scenes moment with these kinds of interviews. I hope they still include the harder hidden levels like they did for the previous two Island games, too.



Yosher commented on Retro Studios Talks Up Wii U And Has Been Work...:

I'd love to see Retro work on a Yoshi game sometime, actually. Seeing what they do for Donkey Kong makes me excited to see what they could do for Yoshi! Buuut with New Island coming and Yarn Yoshi as well (if it's not cancelled), that might be a little bit overkill for now. Here's hoping for an F-Zero or Star Fox from them~



Yosher commented on Giant Eggs, Magic Stars and Flutter Wings Come...:


And I have to admit, despite my scepticism over New Island in the past, the latest footage makes it look more promising than ever! I'm gonna love playing that on my Yoshi 3DS XL~



Yosher commented on You'll Be Able To Customise Your Mii In Mario ...:

I'm kind of disappointed with this news if I have to be honest. Mario Golf should focus on Mario characters if you ask me, not the Miis. So long as they won't be overly broken as in Mario Tennis though, I won't complain.



Yosher commented on Just 2% of Ubisoft's Q3 Sales Were for Wii U:

If they'd actually not cut features from the Wii U versions they might sell more. But because other systems get all the games Wii U does, often with more features, it's very obvious that the Wii U version will not sell very well. Adding Mario & Luigi costumes in a game like Rayman isn't going to suddenly pull PS3/Xbox360 owners to the Wii U.

I'll keep supporting the system 'til the bitter end, anyway. I love the system, have enjoyed it a whole lot already, and will certainly continue to enjoy it for a long time. Let's just hope we can continue to enjoy 3rd party games as well, because at this rate they all WILL ditch the Wii U (unless Nintendo gives them their IPs to work with outside of just adding costumes/cameo appearances), and Nintendo will have a hard time pulling the Wii U out of the slump and might have a hard time supporting the next coming home console as well.
