allav866 commented on Review: NES Remix 2 (Wii U eShop):

Kirby's Adventure is my favorite game of all time... It would be nice to see all the challenges based on the different abilities. While it may be a weird reason, I'll be getting this solely for Kirby's Adventure.

allav866 commented on Talking Point: Horror and Metroid Could be a P...:

I've never made the leap into a horror game, but I'd definitely do it for a game based on one of Nintendo's IP's. Metroid could work well with it, too. I just hope I don't have to scan everything. I'd rather not miss something, then go back to the beginning to do it all over again.

allav866 commented on Cave Story is Finally Coming to the 3DS eShop ...:

@unrandomsam More or less CS+. It doesn't have the enhanced graphics from the WiiWare version, or the Machine Gun Challenge or holiday themes from the Steam version, or the New or Remastered soundtracks, but everything else is there, plus the Jukebox from the DSiWare version, widescreen view, and the 3D layering.

allav866 commented on Rumour: Ubisoft Working On 2D Prince Of Persia...:

@XFsWorld You forget that there was a Prince of Persia game for at least 2 Nintendo systems? (that I can remember) It's not an utter impossibility for a new Prince of Persia game to be on the Wii U, especially if it does run on Rayman Legends's engine. Until it's confirmed that the game isn't coming to Nintendo systems, or whether or not the game's in development for that matter, NL's staff can post about it here as much as they want.

Tbh I only ever owned one Ubi game for Wii U, which was ZombiU, and it came with the system. Nothing ever captivated me from them, except maybe Rayman. EA could at least make more The Lord of the Rings games. Those games were decent as far as video game adaptations go.

allav866 commented on You Can Now Pre-Order eShop Games Via Nintendo...:

If I want to download a game day one, I usually add the needed funds to my account beforehand. There should be some sort of incentive to pre-order a game online. For example, say Nintendo opens pre-orders for Kirby: Triple Deluxe, and if you pre-order the digital copy, you get a download code for 3D Classics: Kirby's Adventure once you've accepted the code for Triple Deluxe. Little digital bonuses like that.

allav866 commented on NES Remix 2 Features A Mode Which Mimics The 1...:

In the '80s, the games included on the NWC carts were Super Mario Bros., Tetris, and Rad Racer, right? That being the case, 2/3 of the concept for this Championship Mode are identical. We have Super Mario Bros., a puzzle game, and... another Super Mario Bros.! Like I said, 2/3.

allav866 commented on Super Smash Bros. Direct Will Bring the Hype o...:

I don't care if we get a release date, as long as I can save $100 for the eShop credit needed to buy both games simultaneously. Still, it'll be good if Sakurai gives us a vague release window, if only to stop people from begging for a release date.
I don't doubt we'll see a new character announcement, but I'm still intrigued by the promise that both games will influence one another in some way, so I'm hopeful that Sakurai will further explain this.
Finally, while Sakurai has given us a tour of Super Mario 3D Land and Prism Tower on Miiverse, I hope he'll show off some other stages, like the Pilotwings Resort stage or the Custom Stage builder.

allav866 commented on Video: Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call...:

That airship sequence caught me by surprise. There are some questionable decisions that I'm seeing, mostly in certain songs that are in an FMS Sequence, but better suited as a BMS Sequence and vice versa. It's most strange to see Aerith's Theme as a battle sequence, but I haven't played FFVII, so maybe it makes sense for those who did.

allav866 commented on Google Maps Launches a Pokémon Challenge:

@Kaze_Memaryu Well, I have Google Maps already, and it updated to the latest version automatically, so I gave it a try. There are 150 'mon you can catch, but you do it by sliding around the map and tapping PokéMon wherever they appear. It's good for a few minutes, then feels more and more tedious when they thin out.
I caught 26 so far, including a Snorlax that was laying in the middle of Junipero Serra Freeway. What is it with Snorlax and sleeping in everyone's way? Traffic jams are bad enough on the freeways as it is!

Wait, it's the day before April Fools? OMG, they're serious! This is probably the coolest thing they've done. It would be much cooler if they stopped trying to shove G+ in my face, though.

This month seems to have been all about items and 3DS stages, which is fine by me, but Miiverse is flooding with speculation that Yoshi won't be in the game because Sakurai didn't announce him when Yoshi's New Island launched. I hope he'll announce a character soon.

allav866 commented on Poll: Have Your Say On The GamePad's Role With...:

@sagen Believe me, nothing would make me happier either, but the reality is that VC games don't take effort to be made. It'll be easy for Nintendo to release the game in Japan, since the text is in Japanese, but to release it in other countries would require the game to be translated, and thus Nintendo would have to actually work on a VC game. It's for this reason that I think they won't even release the game in Japan; when Mother 2/Earthbound was released, fans from other countries flooded the Japanese Miiverse with comments begging for a western release. In Earthbound's case, it took as much effort as any other SNES VC game, which makes it weird that they added $2 to the traditional eShop price for SNES games, but if Mother 3 is ever released, I'd be okay with it being a bit pricier than other GBA titles.

allav866 commented on Poll: Have Your Say On The GamePad's Role With...:

My answers were fairly harsh, but that's not to say that I don't see Off-TV play as a neat option, but I live in a condition where nobody else uses the TV I use to play the Wii U on, so it's not a feature I personally use all that often.
Anyways, it feels like every time Tropical Freeze is brought up, the article feels a need to remind us that it only uses the GamePad for Off-TV play, and I'm getting tired of it. I'm sure Retro's staff was up all night every week, trying to shoehorn another way to use the second screen into the game, but realized that in a game where gameplay is challenging, and speedrunning is supported with online leaderboards, looking back and forth between two screens would hold the game back. I love the GamePad, especially in WWHD, but it doesn't have to be used for every game, even first/second party titles.

allav866 commented on Super Mario Bros. 3 Is Warping To North Americ...:

@2Sang I'm okay with the price for NES games most of the time, but then I see games like Urban Champion that are available for the same price as Super Mario Bros. 1-3, and it makes me wonder why Nintendo varies the price for GameBoy games, but not NES. It did for Super Nintendo, but only for EarthBound.

allav866 commented on Super Mario Bros. 3 Is Warping To North Americ...:

(last night, in a previous topic:)
"Considering NoA's attitude toward the Virtual Console, not only do I think that we'll get this later than Europe, but that we won't see GBA games hit the system until May, or even later. I try to maintain a positive attitude, especially on NL, where there's a stunning amount of negativity toward Nintendo, but please understand my frustration isn't with Nintendo itself, but it's North American branch, where Reggie continues to troll us by keeping the 'Release SMB3' button hidden in the back of his desk drawer."
Reggie knew I was onto his scheme, and did all he could to prove me wrong on almost all accounts. I still think he's a troll.

To be honest, I knew Nintendo would release SMB3 before NES Remix 2 came out, but this better be the start of NoA paying more attention to the Virtual Console.
Back to the GBA games, I'm still hoping for a 3DS release of these, but for now I will get Metroid Fusion. I just beat Metroid Prime 100% with the Fusion suit in the Trilogy, but I've never 100% completed Metroid Fusion. Aside from that, I may pick up Golden Sun. I never beat that one.
Also, with Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga, I used to play it on the GBA Player with my brother controlling Luigi's actions with a second GameCube controller, even for whenever Luigi was in front when not in battle. Please tell me I'm not the only one who's done this! It adds a lot to the game, and makes it feel like you're two brothers going on an adventure!

allav866 commented on Nintendo Passing on PAX East 2014:

@2Sang The Wii U version might be more tempting for people who prefer to play at home with friends/family rather than online. I highly doubt the 3DS will have Download Play, so if two brothers want to play SSB on 2DS, it would cost about $340 for 2 2DS systems and 2 copies of Smash Bros., or they can play on a TV screen and in HD, it would cost around $400 for a Wii U, a copy of Smash Bros. and a Wii U Pro Controller. These are the minimum prices, not counting pre-owned prices. Now say there are 3 or 4 brothers, or one of them wants to play in 3D, then the price goes up for the handheld version. With the Wii U, it's just $40 for each added player's Pro Controller.

One more thing. Just because the Wii U version's roster of characters will be the same, doesn't mean it will have the same amount of content. The Wii U version might have the stage editor, or more event matches, or better stages. we won't know which version of Smash Bros. is better until it's out.
