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.



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.
