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

@Dolphin64 it IS my own, its just in his room because it used to be my room and he liked to play it, which I encourage. His mom says she will buy him one but she is dragging her feet about it, and I don't make enough to buy game consoles for my sisters kid lol!



AshFoxX commented on Nintendo Marketing Boss Says amiibo Expectatio...:

I still keep hoping a wild Rosalina will fall into my lap some day, luckily with Mario Party 10 I think that variation is/will be a little more common than the 'best buy exclusive' Sm4sh Rosalina figure.

Then it's just the wait for Zero Suit Samus, and my team is complete.



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

Ack I haven't been able to play 200cc yet, nor the new DLC because I don't want to be 'that guy' and take my console out of my nephews room, and I also don't want to play it IN his room because then he whines in my ear that he wants to play Lego City just because I am playing something even though he hasn't touched the console in weeks.

Kids are weird.



AshFoxX commented on Review: Pokémon Rumble World (3DS eShop):

Now I feel even stupider for actually purchasing Pokemon Rumble Blast. This one sounds good enough that I wouldn't mind giving the series another chance after being nearly bored to death by that one.



AshFoxX commented on Ninterview: Jeremy Parish On Cataloguing The H...:

My most cherished memories of childhood are from my Game Boy, mostly because I was anti-social and didn't get along with other kids too well so I was usually burying my face into that spinach-green screen in the sunlight. I miss my old gray brick, it was my best friend on long two-day trips to visit my grandparents and I never even had to change the batteries :)



AshFoxX commented on Legend of Kay Anniversary Set for Budget Retai...:

I would feel a lot better if I knew anything about this game, I've had a PS2 since it's launch and I've never once seen this game. A budget release is brilliant though as I wont mind dropping a little money to try it out.



AshFoxX commented on Video: This Is The 3D Sonic Game We All Truly ...:

It looks nice, but from the looks of it the gameplay would feel loose and slow. Maybe WayForward should work on a pixelart/handdrawn version of a new Sonic game, or Sega should let the poor guy rest for a few years and release something else cool.

Oh, and maybe 'finish' a game for once.



AshFoxX commented on Review: Yoshi's Island DS (Wii U eShop / DS):

I don't understand how so many gamers poo-poo the sequels to Yoshi's Island. The reason I love them is because they are still just as fun as the original, while trying a few new things at the same time. Heck, I almost skipped out of Yoshi's new Island because of the NL review but I'm glad I got it on CN as it still holds up with the other games in the series that I adore. I even once got talked into hating Yoshi's Story, a game me and my sister had countless hours into when it was first released. Now, it's the first game my nephew ever grasped and played for more than just a few minutes.

Now he's obsessed with Kirby though, which is appropriate as the first game I ever beat was Kirby's Dream land on my doorstop gray/grey GameBoy.



AshFoxX commented on Take on 3D Streets of Rage 2 With a Pal:

"Streets of Rage 2 : Quartet" That right there is enough reason for me to drop some bones on this. It's cool to have a new 'playable' mode for one of my all-time favorite Sega games, even if it is just a single-player 'smash run' for SoR.



AshFoxX commented on Talking Point: Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Br...:

The difference between what Nintendo is doing with DLC and what just about everyone else seems to be doing in terms of DLC (I'm lookin' at you, 'Destiny') is that they actually finish a full fleshed out game, and add to it with new content over time instead of releasing a nearly empty 'base' game and releasing DLC in a fashion that 'unlocks' content that is already on the disk. This can be seen as lazy by some, but it takes much more time and people to complete full games these days, and in many cases (Mewtwo for Sm4sh for example) they simply ran out of time before release and finished up the assets after the game was released.

Mewtwo wasn't trapped in some locked code on the disk as day one DLC, and neither were the extra characters and tracks for Mario Kart 8. Any time this is the case with DLC, especially for games as universally fun and timeless as these, it is always a good thing. As for focusing time and effort on DLC instead of new 'fresh' ideas, they have whole divisions that focus on different games all the time and I hardly believe that working on the DLC for some of Wii U's most important games are going to put much of a dent on other projects.



AshFoxX commented on Fan Ports Hideo Kojima's Cyberpunk Classic, Sn...:

Pretty astounding, I have to wonder however if Metal Gear turns into a Virtual Boy at the end? Either way, SNATCHER is one of my favorite games and I wish we had a proper modern version that wasn't on such an obscure system as the Sega/Mega CD. A translated PlayStation port would be ace on the PSN.



AshFoxX commented on Poll: Would You Like Mario Kart 8 and Super Sm...:

Hopefully one day Mario Kart 8 will be the definitive version with all the previous iterations of tracks released as DLC and missing characters from the roster, same with Sm4sh, even if Ice Climbers can't work out due to Old 3DS tech, but having all of the stages, especially Saffron City from Smash 64 would make the game a mainstay in my library for many years to come.

edit Also, Arena battles for Mario Kart 8 and character specific 'Smash the Targets' and 'Board the Platforms' for Sm4sh, nuff' said.



AshFoxX commented on Guitar Hero Live Won't Work With Your Old Gear...:

I was not aware that Rock band was receiving a new game too this year. Looks like that will be my 'back in' especially if it is on Wii U as well, though getting it on PS3 would probably be the smart thing to do.



AshFoxX commented on Hands On: Hitting the Tracks in Mario Kart 8 D...:

Very happy with the courses for this new set of DLC, though I'd have loved to see an updated Choco Mountain, Frappe Snowland or Koopa Troopa Beach from 64. I am however a little disappointed with the character roster since three of the four are all Animal Crossing characters, one of which could have been combined into one character (Male/Female Villager) but Dry Bowser is a happy return to the series as I loved him in MKWii. Characters just don't have the same punch as including Link, but then again it's also not as useless as including alt outfits for Peach and Mario which, once again, should have been combined with their respective drivers as alt outfits in the same way Shy Guy, Yoshi and even the Mii's now can do.

Also a bit disappointed that the new karts were described in text instead of shown in the article, but I suppose I don't have long before I can get a good look at them. I hope this isn't the last we will see for MK8 DLC, I could support new content in this game until the cows come home.



AshFoxX commented on Zelda-Style Adventure Midora Runs Out Of Kicks...:

I'm glad the development team is working on the side of not releasing something they will not be proud of, but setting a kickstarter goal means just that. If all the money is spent, well, you are screwed. These things do happen, but it puts you in a rather precarious position since a LOT of people at this point gave you money, and they have no product. Adding to the game after the kickstarter is done knowing it will go over budget is just bad. This attitude is what killed Duke Nukem Forever and put it in development hell for 12 years.



AshFoxX commented on Turn It Up To Eleven, Guitar Hero Is Making A ...:

I will definitely be all over this. I'm one of the three or four people who were disappointed after Rock Band 3 came out and the fad was over. Personally I preferred Rock Band and I will miss customizing my band member, but I am so ready to rock out again :D



AshFoxX commented on The Scrappers Will Be Out to Get You in SteamW...:

WOw. Steamworld Dig never caught my attention due to 'digging holes' not sounding very fun, and the gameplay videos did little to sway me. Heist on the other hand reminds me of a small dash of Abe's Odyssey and a helping of Codename S.T.E.A.M (or X-Com, or Valkyria Chronicles depending on what you have played.)

If the price is right, I won't mind adding this to my 3DS.



AshFoxX commented on Project X Zone 2 Crosses Over to the West For ...:

I must have missed the reveal from the first one as this is my first time seeing anything from this budding 'franchise'. I am delightfully intrigued, and I hope the first game isn't one of those elusive 'Ocarina of Time 3D' scrapes to find a physical copy because I would like to see first hand how it plays.



AshFoxX commented on Games Consultant Believes Nintendo NX Could Be...:

It's gonna be a small 'ouya sized' box you put on a table that interfaces with a lightweight 'helmet' device. When activated, you will enter a VR program where you can play NES up to Wii U games in a 'virtual' environment with the original 'virtual' controllers, and even some extra stuff like a Virtual Boy simulation and even a simulation that allows you and your friends to hook your 'virtual' GBA consoles into a 'virtual' Gamecube and play a 'virtual' version of Zelda Four Swords on a 'virtual' 47' CRT television.

You can even blow 'virtual' dust from your 'virtual' copy of Banjo Kazooie and be able to 'virtually' smack the side of your 'virtual' television to fix the 'virtual' scrolling that happens sometimes with the 'virtual' coaxial cable setup on a 'virtual' 'channel N', which is the VR equivalent to channel 3.

Actually, I just wanted to see the word 'virtual' in a couple of paragraphs mentioned 15 times.



AshFoxX commented on Reaction: Confirmation of Unity on the New Nin...:

OKAY! Okay, Nintendo. You keep revealing more and more that is only possible on a N3DS, enough so that in the near future i will be buying one and giving my precious red and black XL to my best friend... But seriously, I am still not happy with the current N3DS colors in the US.



AshFoxX commented on Review: Donkey Kong 64 (Wii U eShop / Nintendo...:

I just got severe PTSD from that picture of Tiny racing the beetle down the tree... If I could kill a moment in my life, it would be spending far too many hours trying to secure that banana, only to find out there is another race later... THE ANGER SHARKS ARE SWIMMING IN MY BRAAAAIN!



AshFoxX commented on Weirdness: Hospitalised Man Steals More Than $...:

What 8-year-old walks around with two DS's? At least when I have my two systems, one is my 3DS XL and the other is the DSLite which is necessity as the battery on the 3DS XL is junk.

Also, if the mother knew about his 'shady' past, how is she surprised that this happened at all? And why call police, just walk back in there and be like "Give it back to me, Dave." and wave her finger at him in that matter-of-factly way she do... you know what I mean. "I knew he liked to steal things, this is low." What did you expect? You should not be surprised.



AshFoxX commented on 3DS eShop Title Titan Run Is Attack On Titan I...:

Of course it's simple, it's D3 who are known for their simple budget games in Japan. More importantly, how about instead of yet another runner for 3DS, can we please have Earth Defense Force?! At this point I'll take an eShop port of the first one.



AshFoxX commented on Reaction: LEGO Dimensions Could be a Sales Phe...:

I am intrigued with this idea as LEGO games are the only ones my 4-year-old nephew can comprehend, and his mom and I also have fun playing them since they are basically lite puzzle beat-em-ups which always hit a pleasure zone in the back of my head. Watching the trailer though, I almost thought it was for a sequel to the LEGO Movie, which honestly would be pretty sweet too.
