Video games are my passion, and Nintendo is the heart of that passion. Also, ponies rock.

AshFoxX commented on Video: Jimmy Fallon Reveals He's A Keen Mario ...:

Oh my lord, I really need to start watching Jimmy Fallon. I never had anything against him, I just don't normally tune in to 'tonight show' type programs... Actually I don't watch much TV that's not on my Hulu queue anymore.



AshFoxX commented on Review: Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (Wii U):

I think I am done with holding out for hope. They hyped these games like they would be the next Sonic 2. They raised everyone's expectations and hopes that this would be a really good game. This die-hard Sonic fan has given up. At the very least, the show actually reminds me of when I used to watch the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog when I was a kid. (Not the good one, the goofy one.) It's pretty stupid and pointless, but it's not unwatchable.



AshFoxX commented on Weirdness: Super Smash Bros. amiibo Modificati...:


Also, that villager is genuinely awesome. I could never paint my amiibo though, I already feel bad that I took mine out of the cases so I could use them. I'm actually considering purchasing doubles just for display. (plus ten years from now these will be sought after I imagine.)



AshFoxX commented on Video: GameStop Shows How It Faked 'Karissa th...:

GameStop: I beg your pardon?
Stu13: Your ruse, your cunning attempt to trick me.
GS: I was only pointing out that you weren't paying any attention to what I was saying.
S13: And I hope it feels good.
GS: You hope what feels good?
S13: I hope it feels so good to be right. There's nothing more exhilarating than pointing out the shortcomings of others, is there?
GS: Well, this is the last time I rent here.
S13: You'll be missed.
GS: Screw you!
S13: Hey! You're not allowed to rent here anymore!
AshFoxX: Yeah!



AshFoxX commented on Video: This Is What Watch Dogs Looks Like On W...:

I feel conflicted. I do want to buy this game to show Wii U support but after deciding I would wait until I got a PS4 to pick up GTAV, I'd be better off waiting for this game too. Only reason I really care is because I REALLY want BG&E2 to be let out of the attic, but I guess I'd probably have Nintendo's QoL Virtual Reality video game console by then... And I'd still not be able to play it on Nintendo.



AshFoxX commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

I have about 10 games for my 3DS that I enjoy on an every day basis. Off the top of my head, Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7, Star Fox 64 3D, Tomodachi Life, Pilotwings Resort, Pokemon Y, not to mention all of the numerous DS and Game Boy VC games that I play, and I have plenty more on my to-buy list such as Smash 3DS, Fantasy Life and Bravely Default.

The only games the PS Vita has that I am even remotely interested in are all ports of games I can get elsewhere, like Earth Defense Force 2017, Persona 4 Gold, Borderlands 2 and the Sly Cooper games (which I already have on PS3 so moot point.)

The PS Vita is certainly better than the PSP, but the 3DS is still king as far as traditional handheld consoles are concerned. I have not seen ONE person playing a Vita in public, it's always either a smart phone or a 3DS. Everyone will just wait until the system dies next year and winds up in bargain bins, then hack them to play emulators and PS1 games anyway.




AshFoxX commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

I will follow Nintendo to the ends of the earth. While I doubt we will ever see the glory days of the NES dominating the entire market and the intense console wars between SNES and Genesis/MD, Nintendo has still stood firm on great and exciting gaming experiences over pretty graphics and processor speeds.

"Lateral Thinking with Withered Technology." - Gunpei Yokoi. This is the reason Nintendo is king.



AshFoxX commented on Teyon Games Adds Text and Voice Chat to 3DS eS...:

I'd rather Pictochat be updated for 3DS and released in an update... FOR FREE... SwapNote was junk, and it has been closed for a while now. Just find it stupid that I have to run a flash cart with the NDS firmware on it to use OG Pictochat.



AshFoxX commented on The November Club Nintendo Rewards Are Now Up ...:

Starship Defense looks like a pretty decent little game, about time I get to spend my coins on something. I would have also picked up Metroid II if it had just one thing... I can't play Metroid without a map. Shame because it's the only Metroid I haven't really gotten to play very much since the original Metroid was remade as Zero Mission with a map system.



AshFoxX commented on 3DS Homebrew Exploit Set to be Launched on 22n...:

Until 3DS is no longer supported, thus not being updated every 2 minutes, I will probably not be dipping my toe into this program. At least not until something like DSTwo is released that has survived every Nintendo update yet due to having it's own processor and upgradable CFW. It also will not brick if something doesn't work right.



AshFoxX commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:

At least Wii U is different enough to be worth owning. If you have either XBone or PS4, you really won't find much reason to own the other. I have yet to see anyone who realistically finds a need to have PS4 AND XBone, and really if you have a good PC, you can actually skip out on both right now since there hasn't really been any good console exclusives for either of these yet.

Only thing I find on XBone that I might actually try is Sunset Overdrive, and PS4 to me right now is nothing more than 'I hope Sly Cooper 5 is going to be announced soon'.



AshFoxX commented on Genyo Takeda Discusses Nintendo's Hardware Future:

"Whilst it's all speculation for the moment, it could be that Nintendo are considering a gaming system that would appeal to the same market as smart devices, with their pick-up-and-play style appeal that Nintendo dominated with the original Game Boy back in the late 80s and early to mid 90s."

This thinking is the reason I love Nintendo. It doesn't have to be this complicated media server, something that is simple can be endlessly entertaining as long as it is genuinely fun to play with.



AshFoxX commented on Nintendo Black Friday Deals Reveal New 3DS and...:

I love black Friday, especially now since online retailers have black Friday sales now. Either way, black Friday has been my 'beat an RPG' day every year since I refuse to leave the house for fear of getting run over in traffic or by crazy grandmothers in a store.



AshFoxX commented on Book Review: Sega Mega Drive/Genesis: Collecte...:

I will always love Nintendo and Sony the most, but me and my Genesis had (and still have) some very good times together. It is just different enough from the SNES that it was pretty much required to get both systems at some point. I had both as a kid, luckily, and I admit I played Sega a lot more then because it was set up in the living room, while I only had fleeting glimpses of our SNES which was in my sisters room.

Years later, my action fixes usually come from Genesis, while my slower paced RPG's are all on my SNES. Also, Star fox. Nuff said.



AshFoxX commented on Region-Locking May Be a Thing of the Past Soon...:

Well it's about time Nintendo said something that makes so much sense! I never understood their issues with importing in the first place other than an extra hurdle for bootleggers to figure out, which they always do anyway.

Hopefully this becomes a thing since importers are getting very sick of owning two consoles for just a few region exclusive games.
