Yosher commented on Nintendo Badge Arcade Gets A Mario Kart 8 Turb...:

I already got a bunch of these now. Yoshi (obviously), the Koopalings, Bowser, Koopa, and a few others. Also got the theme for that 2 bucks, but it's disappointing that the top screen is so boringly bland/non-Mario Kart and there's no custom music or sound for it either. But oh well, still kinda worth it to me.



Yosher commented on Super Mario Maker Developers Discuss the Diffi...:

Very happy that they included Yoshi after all, so thank you Tezuka for pushing for everyone's favourite green dinosaur!
Speaking of Yoshi's 25th anniversary though, I kinda wish they would have done a little special something for him too. But I guess it's not really realistic, seeing how a lot of their franchises don't even get such a treatment in the first place, so oh well.



Yosher commented on The Super Famicom is 25 Years Old:

Ah, how time flies. My very first console. Happy Birthday, Super Famicom! Happy Birthday, Captain Falcon! And for me, most importantly, Happy Birthday, Super Mario World and Yoshi!! Hope you'll be around for a long time to come!



Yosher commented on Hands On: Getting Pinned Down By Nintendo Badg...:

I spent a grand total of €1 on this thus far, and I don't plan on spending much more on it. I just wanted some Yoshi badges for my home menu, and that's what I got, so I'm fine now. Maybe if there'll ever be more Yoshi badge available, I'll spend a little more, but not right now.



Yosher commented on Final Fantasy's Cloud Is Set To Cause Some Str...:

@AlexSora89 @faint I'm well aware of this, but Cloud just appears in rather minor roles on Nintendo consoles. Minor roles should not count towards characters being considered for Smash. If they really want Final Fantasy in Smash, bring in a generic Black Mage, or a Moogle, or someone like Cecil who actually has some bloody relevance to Nintendo outside of such minor roles.

Now if FF VII would actually come to a Nintendo console, I'd be ABSOLUTELY on board with Cloud getting into Smash, but this just feels absolutely wrong.

And yes I know we're getting more fighters than just Cloud. That doesn't make Cloud's inclusion any better.

Snake actually had some MAIN GAMES on Nintendo consoles he appeared in, Cloud can't say this. So I'm somewhat okay with Snake in that regard.

But oh well, people apparently don't give a **** about characters being relevant to Nintendo or not, they just want to put every big name character into Smash because OMFG CLOUD HE'S SO AWESOME WE MUST HAVE HIM IN SMASH. It sickens me. But hey, new punching bags are always nice I guess.



Yosher commented on Final Fantasy's Cloud Is Set To Cause Some Str...:

I expected Inklings.

We got Cloud.

I got disappointed.

...don't get me wrong, I like Cloud, but I'd rather keep Smash actually NINTENDO related. Cloud barely has anything to do with Nintendo.

Please let this mean FF VII will also come to Nintendo consoles.......



Yosher commented on Site News: Nintendo Life Turns 10 Today:

Happy Birthday, NintendoLife! It's been a great time here, gathered quite a lot of great people, not to mention the ones behind the scenes. Keep it up, NintendoLife, and all of its wonderful crew members!



Yosher commented on Poll: The Tricky Issue of Retail Games as Down...:

I'll cry if they're ever going to go digital only. I was already sad when they stopped making physical instruction manuals, but not getting physical retail games at all anymore... I'd probably only get my absolute favourite games if that were to happen, probably. I only own some retail games digitally because they were free offers, or the physical version wasn't announced yet. But whenever I get the option (on time), I'll always, ALWAYS opt for physical.



Yosher commented on The Latest Patch For Splatoon Is Now Available...:

@Neil12 Maybe you should actually 'git gud', as they say, instead of calling rollers cheap. You're the most unfresh squid on the block.
''Boohoo I can't defeat rollers so I'll just call them cheap and scum of the earth because I'm too lazy to figure out how to counter them!'' That's what you sound like, buddy. Please, come back when you learn some proper respect and manners.



Yosher commented on Video: Nintendo Shows Off a Few More Challenge...:

I'm getting this game day one, even if it may not be the most innovative game in the series. But I love tennis, and Mario Tennis is always great fun, at least when there's no OP customisation going on like in the 3DS version. Miis ruined the entire experience there if you ask me.



Yosher commented on Nintendo Download: 15th October (North America):

Congrats America! You finally get Yoshi's Woolly World! And I wholeheartedly recommend it, it's such an adorable and wonderful game, I can't praise it enough honestly.
And then I see you're also getting the Woolly World 3DS theme. I want that one, too! D:



Yosher commented on Video: We Want Your Super Mario Maker Levels f...:

I don't really consider myself the greatest Super Mario Maker level creator, but I think I managed to get a few good ones out there. The two I'm most proud of:
1211-0000-0031-C97C - YI: Make Eggs, Throw Eggs (recreation of the first Yoshi's Island (SNES/GBA) level)
D8D3-0000-0042-5A1E - Choose your Difficulty! (As the name suggests, just choose your difficulty: door 1 is easy, door 2 is normal, door 3 is hard.)

I've got a couple more if you want to check them out, but those two are (I think) my best ones so far. But you can find the others here.



Yosher commented on Nintendo Download: 15th October (Europe):

Aww.. I was kind of hoping for the Yoshi's Woolly World 3DS theme to come out the week the game would finally release in the US. Japan's had that theme for a good while now. Oh well, nothing for me this week.



Yosher commented on Splatoon 'Octoling' Modder Could Cause Save Da...:

I just want to know WHY this happens though. The Octolings load just fine in-battle, and obviously the hackers themselves can play around as the Octoling in Booyah Base too. Why does the game crash when it tries to load NPC Octolings in the Plaza? It doesn't make sense to me.
This is also kind of a little Nintendo's fault for making Octolings player ID 2 through the 1.1.0 update. Why would they even do that? If it's to make Octolings playable in the future, okay, but they're not even finished yet as you can see with the hair clipping issue, so why bother putting that in the game already anyway? None of this makes sense to me honestly.

Yosher commented on Review: Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer (...:

I really feel like the gameplay of this game should have been integrated into a main Animal Crossing game. I just don't see any reason for this to be its stand-alone game, and that's the reason I'm passing on this one. Maybe I'll pick it up when it drops in price (if it ever does, you know how it is with first party Nintendo games).



Yosher commented on Mario Slam Basketball Rated By The Australian ...:

I still have the original game. There are a few DS games I'd like to own on the VC as well aside from owning them on a cartridge, but this isn't one of them. Still a wonderful game regardless, I should play it again sometime!



Yosher commented on Gallery: Mario - A History of Power-Ups, Fashi...:

Always loved the cape, but it was also a shame that you couldn't really utilize it aside from slowing your descend when riding Yoshi. Hope it will return one day though, as well as the Shell power-up. I loved using that power-up and always wondered why they hadn't brought it back.



Yosher commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer...:

For me it's definitely Super Mario World, out of these choices. The world map, the excellent level design, the Koopalings, the epic last battle with Bowser, the excellent music (even if it's almost all made from the same tune!), the wonderful graphics, the power-ups (cape!) and of course the introduction of Yoshi.. yeah, this is the greatest Mario platformer of them all for me.



Yosher commented on The Mini Splatling is Next Up in This Week's S...:

I've been using the Heavy Splatling a LOT, it's one of my favourite weapons which I absolutely didn't expect from myself. I'm curious to see how this will compare to the current one. I'm guessing it charges faster but doesn't go as far, maybe a bit less powerful too but with more ink reliable ink coverage. Hrmm. Either way I can't wait to try this one, but not sure if it'll replace the Heavy Splatling for me!

@dkxcalibur It takes a little getting used to, but I fell in love with it quite quickly. You just need to make sure not to be too close to the enemies with these, though. Ink coverage, I feel like charging a shot more aimed at the ground before you and slowly raising your aim works to make a straight line, and strafing from side to side works as well while adjusting your aim up and down. Aside from that, I think this gun also helps in building early paths fairly quickly for teammates in the ranked modes.



Yosher commented on Review: Super Mario Maker (Wii U):

I'm definitely gonna get this, but I always saw this as much more of an in between game rather than a triple A game that many others, as well as Nintendo themselves, seem to be treating it as. Maybe that's just because of my lack of creativity though, so I'll be largely stuck with playing other people's creations. And in that aspect, I'm not particularly looking forward to the influx of super bad levels with tons of 1-ups, tons of randomly placed sound effects and no challenge, and the super hard Kaizo Mario levels, both of which I can see taking the upper hand way more than the more normal levels.

If I had a say in the matter, I'd much, much rather have a full Super Mario adventure experience provided by Nintendo instead of this. That said, I'm sure I'll still get a fair amount of joy out of this, but definitely not the usual Super Mario triple A-joy, sadly.



Yosher commented on A Resident Evil 2 Remake Has Been Confirmed:

Whoever expects this to come to the Wii U after the RE titles announced after Revelations on Wii U, will most likely come out disappointed. I for one don't expect it to come to any Nintendo platform. Not Wii U, not 3DS, and not NX. If even that Mega Man collection game is skipping the Wii U, then there's no hope at all for this one.



Yosher commented on Awesome Mario Kart Trophies Are Now Up for Gra...:

I already have all six of them. ..yes, all six, including the Lightning cup one that for some reason isn't re-released here. Why they haven't made Flower and Star cup variants though, I have no idea. :I I'm inclined to have those two custom-made somewhere, to have a complete set of the 8 standard cups.



Yosher commented on Poll: What Do You Think of the Super Smash Bro...:

As it is now, I don't enjoy Tourney mode too much. I enjoy playing the Regular tourneys, but to join in on one of those you're forced to either wait for over half an hour if you want to participate in a For Glory tourney, that is if you're even lucky enough to catch one of those rooms empty. Then a lot of these rooms have Customs turned on too, and I really, REALLY don't like playing with Customs on. And there's no local Tourney mode either. Very lacking, if I have to be honest.



Yosher commented on Weirdness: The Next Splatoon European Splatfes...:

I think people are taking these team choices a tad bit too seriously. They're not the best choices, but ever since the last Splatfest (eating vs sleeping) I've learned to simply take these choices a bit more light heartedly.



Yosher commented on Super Smash Bros. Version 1.1.0 Update is Now ...:

Screw the Mii Fighter costumes, I want alternate costumes for the regular cast. Why the Miis are getting all the attention in this department is beyond me.

That said though, I'm excited for the other features this update brings! Tourney Mode is finally back.
