ZBomber commented on Feature: The Twilight Princess HD Fan Project ...:

@Tubalcain There actually has been a lot of drama surrounding Project M. It's widely believed Nintendo has used some kind of legal pressure to prevent that game from being streamed. Even if they couldn't win a case based on any laws, they could certainly strong arm someone into stopping. People aren't going to have the time or money to fight off a big company like Nintendo.

They certainly are not ok with types of mods like this, because the only way to mod TP is 1. to hack your wii/gamecube or play it on an emulator, both of which Nintendo does not want their customers doing. Not to mention that something like this could take away from sales of THEIR Twilight Princess HD. You compare it to Skyrim, but it's very different because Bethesda actually encourages the community to mod their games (probably because they ship broken...)

When has Nintendo ever encouraged people to modify their games? They are very protective of their IP and shoot down so many fan-made games.



ZBomber commented on Feature: How Mario Kart Brought Two Soul Mates...:

@manu0 You're making this out to be bigger than it is. The message he sent was completely harmless and wasn't coming on to her in any way. He basically said "hey we used to play a lot together, it was nice to run into you again!". It doesn't matter what her age or gender was, that is about as friendly and harmless as you can be. The story took a romantic spin later, but after they learned more about each other. But as the author said, he didn't know if the person was even a female, there wasn't any reason to suspect he would have tried to harm children.

Your original post complained he didn't ask her age in the first message, but to be perfectly honest that comes across way creepier. I wouldn't answer a stranger that starts out a conversation asking for such personal info like that. That sounds more predatory than anything else.



ZBomber commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes ...:

@Minotaurgamer Mario Party as a series? Absolutely. Mario Party 10? No way. That is easily one of the worst Nintendo games I have ever played. After 30 minutes of it my friends and I vowed to never play it again. I can't see any way this game is worse than MP10 unless you're trying to play it on single player (which defeats the purpose of the game to begin with)



ZBomber commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes ...:

This site is usually very liberal with giving Nintendo games high ratings. so it surprises me when I see a game like Mario Party 10 get a higher rating than Triforce Heroes... there is no way that Mario Party 10 is a better multiplayer experience than local three person Triforce Heroes.

I get taking away points for the online/single player portion, but it seems clear to me this game was made to be played locally. I personally have game nights with two of my friends every week so I can't wait for it to release. It sucks for people that have to rely on playing with strangers/can't use other voice chat programs, but I think the actual gameplay is above a 6.



ZBomber commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Competitive Scene ...:

@EmmatheBest I feel the same, trying to refrain from replying to the people that clearly no NOTHING about the competitive Smash scene and are just acting like jerks. I don't really watch competitive games, but Smash is the exception to that. Melee is an amazingly technical game, and Sm4sh (especially the top 8 this tourney) was fun to watch because everyone was gunning for Zero's title. I don't think people realize how much skill goes into games like Smash and the insane precision, knowledge, and mind games that go on.



ZBomber commented on The Bomber's Notebook Will Be Revamped in The ...:

The "Bombers" were the source of my username (Z=Zelda, Bomber), over 14 years ago when I joined a Zelda forum. The N64 Zelda games have always been very special to me. Can't wait to see what changes they make to the 3DS version.



ZBomber commented on Retrospective: The Legend of Zelda: The Minish...:

Though I am a huge Zelda fan, I never played this game until last year when I bought it on virtual console. I had a lot of fun playing it, and some parts were very challenging, but the trophy collecting aspect... man, I don't know how people could complete that, it takes forever! I try to 100% complete all Zelda games, but I had to put that one down after awhile for the last dozen or so collectibles. One day, one day....



ZBomber commented on Review: Meme Run (Wii U eShop):

Probably the worst game to come out this year. I'm sure the creator is probably a 16 year old in high school (or at least has the mentality of one), but one day when he grows up he is going to have to live with the fact that at one point in his life he thought he was really cool and funny for making this game. Hopefully, he'll have matured to the point where he just feels ashamed and embarrassed whenever he thinks back on it.



ZBomber commented on Rumour: Toys "R" Us Cancelling amiibo Orders, ...:

I had 7 amiibos cancelled by TRU this morning. The worst part? I had all of them (except Lucario obviously) pre-ordered at Amazon, but cancelled it because of the BOGO 40% off deal. And from what I hear, they basically cancelled all the orders so they didn't have to honor it.

Spent the rest of today frantically trying to track down the 7 I need. Had to import Falcon and Pit, and did the same with Rosalina and Lucario. I'm not dealing with these stupid retailer exclusives anymore, and I'm not giving them my money if they are going to be shady.



ZBomber commented on HORI's GameCube-Inspired Pikachu Controller Ar...:

Just pre-ordered. Got the Mario and Luigi one when Smash came out. I don't need them for Smash WiiU, but I can use it with Brawl at least since the gamecube controller adapter doesn't work with that game (yet).



ZBomber commented on Professional Super Smash Bros. Melee Player Ta...:

@AlmightyDerek Why do they annoy you? They take a fun game and put a competitive spin on it. Never understood why people hate on the professional players, the game has ALWAYS been very accessible to everyone even when there was a deeper meta game like in Melee. They aren't affecting you or your enjoyment of the game.

I like the new edge mechanics at any rate, I think it is much more entertaining/rewarding when someone goes off the ledge to try and spike someone. Never was a fan of ledge hogging in the older games, but I do love watching the pros play.



ZBomber commented on Rosalina & Luma amiibo Exclusive to Target in ...:

@rolzup Nope, it was always 2015. It's coming out at the same time as the other retail exclusives (Lucario, Meta Knight, etc) in the third wave. The second wave (Luigi, Pit, Zelda, Little Mac, Falcon), which just came out yesterday, was announced and available for preorder a long time ago. Target only just officially announced that they will be the retailer to carry Rosalina yesterday, so that is probably why people are going to the store and asking for it. It is more of an issue on Target's part than Nintendo's, since it doesn't actually have a release date on their website (along with the other 2015 wave 3 figures). Pre-orders haven't gone up for this yet, so you nor anyone else has missed out on it.



ZBomber commented on Rosalina & Luma amiibo Exclusive to Target in ...:

@JaxonH That's what I figured. Rosalina is the only one I need too. I wasn't planning on buying all these when they were first announced, and I'm still not sold on the value of their in-game usage, but so far I've pre-ordered every single one and they make really cool collectibles.



ZBomber commented on Rumour: Villager, Marth & Wii Fit Trainer amii...:

I've ordered every single one released/announced so far, but I think it is pretty dumb to discontinue them so soon if this is true. Some people won't have enough money to get them now, and people are going to be looking to get amiibos after the holidays when they DO have the funds.

They should have at least waited until the third wave came out early next year before discontinuing them imo.



ZBomber commented on Amazon UK Is Cancelling GameCube Adapter Order...:

This is ridiculous. I ordered mine from Gamestop (I'm in the US) a month before it came out. Went to the midnight release and was told they didn't have any of the adapters. Luckily, the cashier let me exchange my order for the last game/adapter bundle they had, so I do have one, but Nintendo should know better. If you can't even fulfill preorders for an item, why even bother taking preorders to begin with? The adapter was met with a lot of fanfare when it was announced, why they would think only a couple people would buy it worldwide is beyond me.



ZBomber commented on Details Uncovered of Upcoming Update for Zelda...:

I have to be honest that I regret blindly buying the season pass before even playing the game. I had a lot of fun with it for the first 20 hours or so, playing through the legendary mode and then some of the adventure maps. But at this point, I am so tired of the game. It is so repetitive and some parts just way too difficult unless you grind for a long time to get a high enough level character (and that takes forever, especially since some modes require a certain character). While I appreciate the company putting so much content into the base game and the DLC, I'm never even going to come close to completing everything in the base game. I have no reason to even try and play through the DLC... especially now that Smash U is out.



ZBomber commented on Two Pokémon Game Boy Color Titles Dated For N...:

@rjejr Yeah, the game that will go on sale on the eshop next month isn't related to the Pokemon TCG programs released on PC and Apple products.(The article is kind of confusing, they really should add GBC in there). The GBC game uses the first 3 sets of Pokemon cards (Base Set, Jungle, and Fossil; basically the first 151 pokemon) where the new one uses the modern day TCG, which has over 700 Pokemon and I'm guessing different rules/cards/strategies. I haven't played FF8 yet so I'm not sure how similar it is to that, but I would definitely recommend checking out videos of it on Youtube before buying it. Honestly it is a bit dated at this point, but I imagine if you or your kids are big Pokemon fans, especially of the original generation, they might get some enjoyment out of it. The big draw of the GBC game is the story mode, where you build your own deck(s) and use it to beat gym leaders. But again, the game originally came out in 1998 in Japan so it is pretty limited in terms of what content is in it. The free TCG doesn't have a story mode as far as I know, but the content is a lot more extensive and (I think) you can battle friends, which I don't believe you'll be able to do with the GBC version.
Here is a random video of the game just to get an idea



ZBomber commented on Two Pokémon Game Boy Color Titles Dated For N...:

@rjejr Pokemon Trading Card game on the GBC was a lot different from the TCG app they're offering now. You controlled a character that went around to each "gym" challenging people, collecting cards and decks and badges. The GBC version was like an actual video game based around the trading card game, while the one Nintendo offers now is basically a simulator of the actual trading card game. People that didn't play the game back in the day should probably pass, as (I imagine) the TCG has changed much since 1998. However, for people like myself who grew up with the original series and this game, its a nice throwback. I'm not interested in learning the new TCG but I still have great memories of the original version, so I will definitely pick it up when it comes on the eShop.

That said, I agree the $5.99 price point is way too expensive.



ZBomber commented on This Super-Cute Toon Link Nendoroid is Looking...:

This has been available for pre-order since MAY. What is up with this site today and the outdated news? The gamecube controllers, the mega evolutions and now this? I love this site and check multiple times per day, but you guys gotta step up your game.



ZBomber commented on Ocarina of Time gets a 2D Makeover:

Anyone remember when a team tried to do something similar to this about 10 years ago? They released a demo build, it was cool but never materialized into anything. Teams that do things like this need to remain SILENT until they actually finish it. Announcing it now will just result in Nintendo shutting it down and it never taking off.



ZBomber commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

This is incredibly disappointing. I had been checking back every day hoping for a soundtrack or some kind of cool exclusive .I'm not big on digital games in the first place as I prefer to buy physical ones. I think the least they could do is allow a platinum member to chose one from the platinum section and one from the gold... this is the first time I got Platinum and I really worked toward it after seeing all the great rewards in the past, and I'm already at gold status for the year. Just incredibly disappointed...
