This direct had me completely uninterested, bored and disappointed, until I saw SSB. God it was jaw-dropping. Also WW HD looks kinda cute, the other games too, but there were too many things we had already seen.

Adhrast commented on Evidence of a Functional 3DS Flashcard Emerges:

Hope this gets blocked immediately by Nintendo.
Also, I still can't understand why most people would never steal a car, or a wallet, or whatever, but doesn't feel the same way about pirating games.
It's clearly the same, both from a legal and a moral point of view.

EDIT: also, having downloadable retail games on the eShop is already a way of doing what people claimed flashcarts were usd for.

Adhrast commented on Nintendo Download: 30th May (Europe):

@Marshi As far as I know, the two Oracles are widely regarded among the very best Zelda games, and most probably the best handheld games in the series.
They're better than Link's Awakening, I'm told, and Link's Awakening is beautiful and it has aged really well.

Given that English is not my mother tongue, I'll just assume, from the context and the comments above, "boingy bits" means "breasts".
We all know Japanese are on the perv side, but frankly this kind of feels out of place in such a game.
I'm more inclined to think that the NA translators just modified that line.

@SilentHunter382
Well I don't think you bought a hundred of VC games all at once, did you?
You could just update say, 10 a month, starting from the ones you use the most. Isn't that reasonable?
I mean, adding features costs, and I feel that they're already being kind enough not making people pay the full price, so I wouldn't complain too much ;)

We just need to ne patient.
I think Reggie is concerned, sorry too. I can imagine that he really wanted the Wii U to take off.
But we already have a LOT coming on, and I'm sure the E3 will bring even more staff :)

9500 stars and NOTHING to buy with them.
I filled useless surveys and answered randomly, just to know what my star balance is.
Just hope NoE will wake up and do something for us, I know it's something completely optional, and a plus, but if you're gonna give us stars, at least give us something worth to spend them on.

@Araknie
I'm with you on this, totally.
I just played the previous ACs before starting III on the Wii U and I can honestly say that, while they have minor flaws, they're awesome games, with great plot and nice graphics, while the gameplay, though being good, should be fixed a little, but this doesn't mean they're bad games, at all.

This game is really fun to pay, good-looking and overall has a huge value for its price.
This should teach devs (and Nintendo too) that pricing a game reasonably, or even more on the cheap side, if the game is good, doesn't hurt at all.

Adhrast commented on Review: HarmoKnight (3DS eShop):

I was somewhat hyped or at least curious about this, but sure the demo put me off :/
Generic, bland graphics and completely unappealing music. That's a shame, I SO wanted to like this.

Adhrast commented on Review: Pokémon Black and White 2 (DS):

Lol @ the elitist pricks who don't like other people knowing about EVs and IVs D:
The ones who couldn't care less will still ignore them, it will be just a bit easier for the others. And btw, what's the harm in other people understanding the deep mechanics beneath the surface?
My paycheck (here in Italy we're usually paid on the 10th) was delayed of about a week, so as I'm already moneyless, I'll have to wait until the 15th or the 16th to buy this game :/

Adhrast commented on Guild01 Titles Heading to eShop:

I bought Liberation Maiden right after the Nintendo Direct out of love for Level5 and a determined will to support everything they do, not even knowing if I'd like the game or not.
I have to say, those € 7,99 were incredibly well spent.
The game is awesome, both the in-game graphic and the anime cut-scenes are visually stunning.
The gameplay is chaotic (in a good way) and resembles KIU's flight sections. It might take a little while to get used to these controls, but they're absolutely not impossible to deal with.
I've cleared 4 stages, which feature an increasing level of awesomeness :D boss fights can get messy, but as I said, it just takes practice.

tl;dr: awesome mecha shump, buy it ASAP :D

Adhrast commented on Watch the European 3DS Nintendo Direct Here:

@Linkstrikesback My thoughts exactly. € 44,99 for games you can find in the shops for half the price is just idiotic. Had they put them on DD for like € 30 then I could think about getting Starfox or OoT, but I'm totally not gonna pay the full retail price for months old games :/

Also, Crimson Shroud looks extremely tempting... I fear I'll have to buy a bigger SD sooner than I though :P

I honestly was afraid of this kind of prices. 350 € for the console is kind of ok, since it's a next gen console with new features, more powerful than the previous one etc., but I seriously hoped it cost less than that... What bothers me is the price for games. I mean, 70 €? Come on!

Adhrast commented on The Binding of Isaac Creator Still Thinks the ...:

I didn't mean to insult anyone, and I was talking about extremist movements which for example, in Italy prevented a lot of tv series, movies (e.g. Eyes Wide Shut), anime and cartoons from being aired.
If someone was offended by what I said, I beg your pardon. I have clearly nothing against the US, as I visited them often and found a great, welcoming and incredibly open country. Far from me also to say religious people are stupid, and if that was what you saw in my words, that's not what I meant. I was talking about extremists and making an example that might seem extreme (food) but actually based on the same principle.
This said, nothing against TrueWiiMaster and his beliefs, as I do have my beliefs myself. He and everyone else is free to buy, not buy and dislike what he wants, obviously. As I previously stated, I'd like to be free to have this game and enjoy the same right as well, given that I don't do anything against the law.
I personally hugely enjoyed this game's gameplay and didn't find it blasfemous or offending, . But I can understand that some people do.
To sum up, I wish this game came to the eShop, being an entertaining game with A LOT of content. And I consider the discussion about religion closed, if that's fine for the others involved.
Again, TrueWiiMaster, I hope I explained my point and you didn't take offense for that :)

Adhrast commented on The Binding of Isaac Creator Still Thinks the ...:

@TrueWiiMaster My father has six siblings, each one married and with at least a child, that means I have something like ten cousins, both boys and girls. 5 of them own a Nintendo DS, be it Phat, Lite, DSi or whatever. My little cousin, the girl that happens to be my favourite one, made me try at least 4 of them, including "Doctor", "Teacher", "Movie Star" and something like "Ballet Dancer", maybe?
I'm obviously not the target audience for that kind of game, so while I pretended I incredibly enjoyed them, they're what they are. Extremely shallow games, with no element that can appeal to someone other than little girls.

The point is, what is the meaning of religion? Trying to explain what's above and around us. It's something extremely personal, something intimate. I have my beliefs as well, mind you, but I don't go around showing them off and/or saying a game shouldn't be on an online platform :)
Hindis believe cows are sacred. Would you be happy if they banned hamburgers in the US because of that? I definitely would not. Eat what you want and believe in what you want, just let me do the same, provided I don't go against the law :)

Adhrast commented on The Binding of Isaac Creator Still Thinks the ...:

@Capt_N You, dear sir, are the kind of religious people I enjoy talking to. Religious AND reasonable, almost always leading to a constructive and serene conversation. I respect other people's beliefs, i.e. I don't go around screaming "What you believe is a lie" because in the end who the heck knows?
My point is, everyone should be free to enjoy whatever they like (within the boundaries of the law, obviously), so if Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist or whatever content appeared on the eShop I'd simply say "Well, nothing for me here", and that's what other people should do as well, no matter the kind of content.
Am I that wrong?
Never said you Christian or other religious people are not entitled to your faith, beliefs and opinions, btw, you are as much as everyone else :)

Adhrast commented on The Binding of Isaac Creator Still Thinks the ...:

@TrueWiiMaster: I still can't understand in what way this game poses any harm to your beliefs. Do you like what you see on tv? Do you enjoy making love before marriage? Do you like drinking a beer with friends?
There are a lot of things that the Bible bans, and most of them is in our everyday life. It's like vegans who wear leather jackets and shoes, I think.
Western society is based on freedom of expression, often obtained through fight and blood. Often spilt in the name of the Bible you defend, in the name of other religions, and of a lot of ideals as well.
If you don't like a movie that's on tv or at the cinema, you simply don't go and see it. If there's a game you don't like on the shelves, you don't buy it. And if there's a game you don't like on any online platform, you don't buy it either, it's as simple as that.
I'm not saying you're an idiot or that what you're saying is stupid, I'm saying that the existence of a game alone, on any platform, doesn't mean that everyone is forced to buy it and/or play it. I don't like the "Imagine" series on DS, does it mean each and every copy should be burned? No, because there's a lot of people enjoying it. And don't say that's an entirely different matter due to it not involving religion, because, as a matter of fact, it's the exact same thing. It's all about personal sensibility, what offends you might amuse someone else, and viceversa.

"Feel free to feel offended, even if by something that in no way really relates to you, such as people believing in what you call "fairytales". It's your right."
See above. What other people believe doesn't concern me, as much as what other people play and would like to have on their consoles shouldn't concern you.

Adhrast commented on The Binding of Isaac Creator Still Thinks the ...:

And I still don't understand why Nintendo accepted GTA: Chinatown Wars (and previous installments on GBA and GBC). Or why others can have CoD, GTA, and every kind of violent games while a game which feature cartoon violence and religious references is made object of this kind of debate.
We even had a thread about that recently, seems like no one even read it and think about it a little.

Adhrast commented on The Binding of Isaac Creator Still Thinks the ...:

@TrueWiiMaster: I'm kind of offended by millions of people believing in what I think is nothing but fairytales, should I try to prevent people from believing? If anyone is offended by this game, they shouldn't play it. As much as I don't go to church (of any kind).
I couldn't care less about what people believe, as long as it makes them happy and doesn't involve preventing other people from living their lives freely.
No bad feelings, anyway, just stating my opinion, ok? ;)

Adhrast commented on The Binding of Isaac Creator Still Thinks the ...:

Why the flying h---k should we have Bible-based games that take it literally while we can't have a game like this?
What the hell, everyone, a lot of people like this game, and a lot of people may find what you play disgusting, as well as a lot of people might find THIS game disgusting. Why should we have only what YOU like? I personally hate CoD style FPSs, and because of that I should be happy that none is released on the 3DS? No, I'm sorry for the ones who love them.
This is just a matter of choices: why should Nintendo choose for us? We like this game, we buy it, we don't, then we'll leave it there.
I still can't see what the big deal is.

Adhrast commented on Talking Point: The Rules for Violence in Video...:

My point still stands: why this and not The Binding of Isaac?
The problem was religion? So killing LOTS of people and/or animals = fine, raising some criticism on religion through a clever and extremely fun game = NO NO. Wth?

Adhrast commented on No Sequel From The World Ends With You Teaser:

@OlympicCho: it seems like you keep pretending not to understand what other people are saying, are you doing that on purpose? I'm not trying to flame, just saying that no one said that the iOS version sucks, and I'm almost completely sure that it doesn't, people are saying that the teaser led fans to think there was a sequel coming out while it was just a port for a system that's completely different from the first it came out on, and thus it has been modified. No one's saying games on one screen suck, just that this game originally uses two.
So don't answer me ironically please, just try and understand the point I'm making, hoping I managed to be clear enough :)

P.S. If I had an iPad I'd probably buy it straight away :P

One of the most underrated games EVER.
It's one of the best games in the DS's library, totally, completely crazy and awesome.

Adhrast commented on Feature: DS Games We Want on Wii U:

OMG, how many people missed the point? I think it's safe to say that Gaz meant "franchises" rather than "single games". Anyway, I completely agree with this list, Professor Layton, Ace Attorney and Advance Wars would be TOTALLY awesome on the Wii U :DNot quite convinced on Pokémon, though, home console games never really attracted me much :S As others said, I would LOVE to have a new 2D Metroid as well, it's been really too long since they made one!
