allav866 commented on Shigesato Itoi Explains, Once Again, Why Mothe...:

@WireWare Looking at the official website for Mother 4, I don't see anything stating that Itoi himself gave the game his blessing.
On that note, Mother 4 may look good, but that is an over-ambitious title if I ever saw one. You don't see fans making a Metroid 5 or Super Mario Bros. 4. Most programmers for fan-made games I've seen were humble enough to only give it a subtitle, rather than claiming it's a direct sequel to the game it's based on. Calling the game Mother 4 is like saying, "We're the new Shigesato Itoi, and we're making the game he would've made after Mother 3!"



allav866 commented on Poor Odds of The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth ...:

I don't mind waiting for an NX port, but I would like a port of Cave Story+ on Wii U, with Widescreen mode from the 3DS eShop version, and the Machine Gun challenge from the Steam version, and maybe even more challenges for other weapons, like Snake, Bubbler, and Fireball. Nicalis has no problems making a dozen ports for that game anyways (as opposed to other games, like Binding of Isaac), so what's one more?



allav866 commented on Nintendo Download: 19th November (North America):

Even if something worth my time and money were released today (MSF2 comes closest), I need to save my money. Let's just say that after the recent Nintendo Direct and news that Twilight Princess HD will support all Zelda amiibo, I got some amiibo hunting to do.



allav866 commented on Mega Man Legacy Collection Gets a Budget Price...:

Knowing that Capcom typically has a sale on the eShop that includes some of its latest games, I could wait for one of those sales, or I could buy Mega Man 5&6 on VC and be done with it. The artwork and challenges mean absolutely nothing to me, and these games won't look any better in the collection. All that, plus Capcom might pull the VC games from the eShop, like Sega did with Sonic 1&2.



allav866 commented on Store amiibo Displays Point to Roy, Ryu, Famic...:

I'm really glad the Midna amiibo will be sold separately from TPHD. I hope Hyrule Warriors gets an update to make it give you a Shackle (or a Mirror, if you've unlocked Twili Midna) instead of a random prize like any non-Zelda amiibo. Either way, I'm glad I get to download TPHD instead of getting the physical copy just for the amiibo.



allav866 commented on The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Is Rece...:

@WaveGhoul It looks like it's an HD version of the GameCube version. This is good for me, since I originally played that one first, but the land of Hyrule and its inhabitants were all mirrored in the Wii version, so if you get too familiarized with the Wii version, you'll find yourself going the wrong way a lot in the HD remake. That is unless Nintendo plans to do something to accommodate people who are more familiar with the Wii version.



allav866 commented on Super Smash Bros. Fan Provides a Suprisingly D...:

@Pie7 Yes, I've had my own opinions of how Smash could be changed, but the likelihood of the changes ever happen are slimmer than the odds of me bumping into Masahiro Sakurai himself! And as far as alpha versions of each stage? It would be easier just to turn off hazards altogether.
Some of the other ideas are even more ridiculous "Hitboxes were visible in Project M and Melee, so they should be visible in training mode!" Project M is in no way affiliated with Sora Ltd. or Nintendo, and the option was part of Melee's debug menu, which was only ever intended for development purposes.



allav866 commented on Video: This Harmless Exploit Will Help You Gra...:

@spoonmanx You have to do the exploit while a Special Mii is being distributed via SpotPass. After he appears, use him for whatever, deactivate StreetPass (which deactivates SpotPass), reactivate StreetPass and SpotPass, then close your 3DS for about 15 seconds. You'll get the Special Mii again as long as Nintendo is still giving it out. I just tried it with Kyle from Nintendo and it worked, and this article is wrong in that you don't even need to close out Mii Plaza.



allav866 commented on Michael Pachter Thinks Miitomo Will Have Troub...:

Well, no sh**, Sherlock! Of course people are still gonna use Facebook, but if I can have FB, tumblr, Pinterest, Twitter and Miiverse accounts, then what's one more social media account?
Oh look, I'm Micheal Pachter! I'm stating the obvious again so that people think I'm a good analyst! Hurr-ba-durr-ba-durr!



allav866 commented on Rumour: More Evidence Mounts of Twilight Princ...:

If this is some indication that Twilight Princess is being remade, I'm pretty excited to see Link being left-handed. I'm more of a fan of the original GameCube game, and I'd rather the game follow its original layout, and not the Wii's mirrored crap.



allav866 commented on Super Mario Maker Gets Mid-Level Checkpoints a...:

Also, wasn't Gnat Attack hard enough already?! I better unlock another costume for the trouble I'm no doubt gonna go through!
On a side note, I hope slopes are added next, as well as the ability to shake a Fire Flower into an Ice Flower/Penguin Suit in the NSMB U theme, or a Super Leaf into a Tanooki Suit in the SMB3 theme.



allav866 commented on Don Bluth And Gary Goldman Want Your Help To M...:

I only remember Dragon's Lair on SNES and a trailer for Dragon's Lair 3D on GameCube. Still, just the idea of having one more Don Bluth movie is exciting enough to get me interested. The only issue is that if I backed this kickstarter, it would only be for a chance for it to actually happen.



allav866 commented on Red Fly Studio is Trying to Resurrect the Canc...:

I don't get why anyone would think Maul's so cool. He's only got two things going for him: he wields a double-ended lightsaber, and he's rocking Shadow the Hedgehog's color scheme. There's nothing interesting about his character because there's hardly any character there to begin with! Tell me one good reason why Maul would deserve his own game.



allav866 commented on Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival Won't Have On...:

"What do you think? Is this a deal breaker for you? What do you think of Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival?"
The whole game is a deal breaker. I just hope that Nintendo is working on an Animal Crossing title to launch with the NX, and that's why we're getting this tripe on Wii U.
