allav866 commented on Art Academy: Atelier Sketched In For 26th June...:

I don't quite understand why the YouTube feature is necessary; most people in the Sketch Pad community upload WIP shots to Miiverse. I guess I'm more confused as to why a painting program lets you upload your artistic progress when Nintendo's popular fighting game doesn't let you upload your favorite replays.

I could imagine someone making a fortune customizing people's amiibo figures. Pay a sizable fee, send your Mii Fighter amiibo, and a picture of your Mii, and he replaces the head and, if necessary, paints over the shirt to match your Mii's.

@Moon Don't knock until you've tried each one. What you see as a small difference feels like a drastic change. Even if a Pushmo is somehow recreated into a Crashmo, you have to look at it with different rules in mind. Stretchmo is more similar to Pushmo than Crashmo, but the fact that you can stretch the sides out adds a new layer of depth to the mechanics of the original game.

@SHULZ21 @seb5049 In my head it wouldn't make much sense it it were a Wii U successor, since the Wii U hasn't been available that long, and is starting to see some success. The 3DS will have been out for 5 years by the time the NX is announced, possibly 6 by the time it releases. It seems more likely to me that the NX will replace the handheld.

allav866 commented on Nintendo's E3 Focus to Reportedly be on Wii U ...:

(gasp) No freaking way! It's not like Iwata told us that the NX would be revealed in 2016 to begin with! On a less sarcastic note, I don't think Nintendo's first iOS software (or any iOS software) is worthy of an E3 appearance, so much as a Nintendo Direct appearance. I kinda figured their main focus would be more on the Wii U and 3DS games, and maybe their new loyalty program.

@seb5049 Nobody at any point said the NX was a home console. I'm fairly certain the NX is going to be a handheld to replace the 3DS. That said, there's nothing too gimmicky about the DS systems; the second screen was more revolutionary than it was on the Wii U, and the 3D definitely helps in 3D platformers. It will be interesting to see where Nintendo goes from the 3DS, though.

allav866 commented on Playtonic's Project Ukulele Becomes Yooka-Layl...:

Now that I think about it, we haven't heard anything about Lobodestroyo or A Hat in Time in a while. I remember reading that Lobodestroyo was set for a late 2014/early 2015 release, and Hat in Time recently got a Beta release. This is the time for the developers of said games to speak up and remind people that Playtonic isn't the only one making a 3D platformer.

allav866 commented on Playtonic's Project Ukulele Becomes Yooka-Layl...:

I love the name already, but the design leaves much to be desired compared to Banjo and Kazooie. Banjo wore yellow shorts, a claw necklace and a backpack, which Kazooie also wore most of the time. xD
I will say that a range of abilities come to mind for our chameleon and bat duo. Yooka could camouflage himself for similar purposes to Chunky's "Gorilla Gone" ability in DK64, and Laylee could screech in dark areas to see the surrounding area similar to the Echo Visor in Metroid Prime 2.
I'm already excited to see more of what these two can do! Let's hope putting clothes on is one of them!

I'm really excited for Mario Maker! It certainly doesn't look like the $15 dollar editor it did at E3 last year. I'm gonna guess that the finished product will be $30-$40, and for how much they've added to it, that seems like a reasonable amount.

allav866 commented on Video: So, How Fast Is 200cc In Mario Kart 8?:

Could've been a better comparison video. Needs items and coins turned off, and for the driver to practice the course in 200cc until he completes it without going off the track. But I guess if the bare minimum of what this video was supposed to do was demonstrate that 200cc is faster than the other classes, then it at least accomplished that much, but we still don't have a clear idea of how much faster it actually is.

Hey, I'll buy a New 3DS for this. But whether a remake is coming to Wii U, New 3DS, or even if it's coming at all, one thing is certain; it can't be the Wii version, where everything was mirrored just to make Link right-handed! I'll only buy it if it's a port of the GameCube version!

FINALLY! I skipped the 16-bit era entirely (no SNES or SEGA), but whenever my older brother and I went to our dad's place, we'd play Sonic 2, and I'd play as Tails, since I wasn't as good at video games. So I might not have any nostalgia for a lot of other SEGA Genesis games, the Sonic games, particularly Sonic 2, will always be something I fondly remember!
I do hope M2 will add some way to play the game in 2P mode, as well as allow you to play as Knuckles, as if the Sonic 2 cartridge were connected to the Sonic & Knuckles cartridge.

Even if the retail copy came with Plague of Shadows, it wouldn't justify the $30 price tag (especially since it's free DLC anyway...). Shovel Knight is the reason I like Yacht Club Games, but this is some stupid crap they're trying to pull!

Still can't see why the Wii U isn't a suitable system for an F-Zero racing game. Miyamoto's developed some of the greatest games of all time, but his excuse for why we haven't had an F-Zero game in so long is absolute crap.

In the harsh light of modern opinion however, some of the rose-tinted sheen has definitely worn off, and a sense of repetition sets in before too long.
Where was the harsh light of modern opinion in the Super Mario 64 review?

Not sure I like having on-disc content unlocked with amiibo. It would be different if the amiibo came after the game, and the challenges they unlocked were released in an update on the day the figures were released, like the Spinner in Hyrule Warriors. This is essentially paying $30 to unlock what's already in the game.

allav866 commented on Former Rare Devs Playtonic Want Donkey Kong Co...:

@astarisborn94 Maybe it's because I didn't grow up with a SNES. I skipped a generation from NES to N64. Even so, I didn't say I would vote for Tiki Tong or Fredrik, I'd vote for Cranky. If K. Rool does make it instead, my reaction will be similar to Duck Hunt's reveal; I'll disagree with it at first, but will eventually be taken in by his charm and accept that he's a viable roster addition.

allav866 commented on Former Rare Devs Playtonic Want Donkey Kong Co...:

If I'm gonna vote for a DKC character, it's gonna be Cranky. K. Rool was a pretty neat villain, but that was ages ago, and he's been removed from his position as final baddy since Retro started making the DKC games. Now he'd only be another obscure addition to the roster (Lord knows he was in Mario Super Sluggers!)

@JellySplat Airports are the worst places to bring literally anything! I lost my 3DS adapter and pouch, which both disappeared the moment I had my back turned. If I didn't have my 3DS constantly attached to me via wrist strap, I'd have lost a bunch of downloaded games.

@andyg1971 Ever stop to think about how not everyone has your taste in games? Maybe just because something doesn't appeal to you, it doesn't mean it won't appeal to anyone else. You are of course entitled to your opinion, but you look like a self-centered jerk if your opinion is that everyone is weird for getting hyped for a game you have no interest in. So if that is your opinion, it's best to keep it to yourself instead of trying to be a downer for those that look forward to the game's release.

Don't get me wrong, I love this game... but a perfect 10/10? I grew up with Mario 64, and even I can say it hasn't aged extremely well, and I wouldn't just be talking about the camera controls either. I acknowledge that it was a masterpiece for its time, but by today's standards, it doesn't hold up that well.

Why are people complaining? This could've been avoided if Nintendo launched the game without a matching Miiverse community, true, but we should've known that they'd remove the screenshots eventually, given the nature of the game.

@Stubborn_Monkey Glad I'm not the only one voting for him! I'd like him to spit out his chattering false teeth like he does in Tropical Freeze, and his FS would be the finishing attack in every boss fight; mash the buttons to beat up the opponents and send them flying! I'd rather not see K. Rool in the game, as he hasn't been a main villain in quite a while. The last game he appeared in was Mario Super Sluggers.
I also voted for Simon Belmont, Tetra, and Isaac.

Also, I hope Rare can cut Nintendo some slack and let them release Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie, Perfect Dark, Conker's Bad Fur Day, and Goldeneye, or at the very least, Diddy Kong Racing. Microsoft doesn't deserve ownership of such games, not after what they did with Rare.

I was actually planning on buying an N64 mainly to play DK64 at the end of the month. Glad I can hold off on it until I feel like playing whatever Reggie won't release! Yeah, I'm happy to get N64 games, but I'm not too optimistic about how NoA will do in providing us with more VC games on a regular basis, even across the two added platforms.

@ThomasBW84 You should also add that the Elite Status Rewards will be available starting tomorrow:
"Your free Elite Status gift will be available between April 1 and April 30, 2015. A list of the Elite Status 2015 gifts will be posted here once announced."
That last part makes me wonder if the Elite Status gifts are to be announced in the Direct tomorrow...
