AlexSora89 commented on Nintendo Download: 24th April (Europe):

Am I the only one annoyed at the GBA bonanza on Wii U, while the 3DS Virtual Console is getting stuff so slowly?
I'm afraid the only reason the 3DS has a NES VC is to justify the GBA VC on Wii U. Too bad they took the best handheld to pick games from.

AlexSora89 commented on Pokémon Moviegoers in Japan Can Receive Dianc...:

Event Pokémon is one of the mechanics the franchise really needs to drop. As awesome as the series is, it shouldn't be so bureaucratic about the availability of the creatures themselves. Everyone should be able to get this or that Pokémon, without having to attend events. Here in Italy, it gets really frustrating, as most Event Pokémon are given at the yearly Pokémon Day event, held at an amusement park that, unless attendees live in its proximity, might require half a day just to get to. It makes no sense.

AlexSora89 commented on Microsoft's Ken Lobb: Metroid Prime Wouldn't H...:

If all of this is just a way to say Nintendo's right to ignore the fans' demand to get the GBA VC on 3DS, I'm (if you forgive the pun) not buying it.

I know this is about Metroid Prime's development and about how not listening to the fans turning out to be a good thing, but if - in this very period of time, I mean - you talk about Nintendo not listening to the fans, the GBA Virtual Console on Wii U immediately comes to mind. So yeah.

Voted for Yoshi, because his late reveal got me actually worried.
Also, DAT KEN SUGIMORI ART. (Although Peach looks way too much like Elesa in that one.)

Speaking of which, I've seen a lot of other screenshots - one of which shows the Super Leaf in effect, with Raccoon Luigi.
Let that sink in, right?
Also, apparently, there are Namco items such as Galaga ships and the Special Flag.

Have a look: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HfiY3Ir5Lg
[EDIT: @ThomasBW84, how about these reveals?]

To clarify a point here: I'm a Christian as well, but I'm against homophobia. (And this, coming from an Italian, is kind of a rarity.)

And, unknowingly so, Nintendo just sent an anti-homophobic message here: two human beings can happen to love each other, regardless of their gender. All it takes is the heart within.

I'm really glad the 3DS version will come this soon, my only fear is that it'll be rushed as long as Ninty can push it "out of the way".
I hope I'll be proven wrong and Nintendo will acknowledge how long overdue a portable Smash Bros. truly is.

AlexSora89 commented on Talking Point: The Timing of Nintendo's Super ...:

As excited as I am for this, I have to say this Direct made my own hype skyrocket for several reasons, namely -
1) finally a Direct focusing on Smash Bros. alone, after many directs that kept saving the best for last
2) finally Smash Bros. is getting some recognition from Nintendo themselves, as they never treated their own fighting game as one of their top franchises (and it really deserves to be considered as such)
3) finally some good news for the Wii U
4) finally the chance to see a lot more stuff in a single update
5) finally some focus on the first Smash Bros. to have the honor of being also portable, what with it being long overdue being never stressed enough

Guys, if I were you I'd be more than willing to give Lanning a chance. The fact the man who created the quintessential adult platformer game for the original PSOne isn't worried for the unflattering amount of Wii Us that have been sold... well, it says a lot. I also suggest to give the PS1 original a try, provided you have a PSP or a PS3. Trust me, beneath its monstrous difficulty lies a LOT of quality.

Still can't believe all of this is staying away from 3DSes. Hopefully GBA games will become available once again as the portable games they're supposed to be. Someday.
Unless, of course, Ninty realizes this is yet another shooting in their own feet.
