bofis commented on Shantae And The Pirate's Curse All Set For Fes...:

@Tops Totally loved it on 3DS, and btw, Pirate Mode is unlocked after you beat it once, and means you start the game with all of Risky's pirate weapons from the beginning, rather than finding them in each labyrinth ("Den of Evil" in this game).



bofis commented on Shantae And The Pirate's Curse Delayed Into 20...:

@StarDust4Ever The game we Kickstarted is 1/2 Genie Hero, which is the 4th installment. It's confusing since the Kickstarted ended so long before this game finally came out, but Pirate's Curse has been in development since Risky's Revenge came out and was originally only going to be on 3DS. The WiiU version was added in during the Kickstarter cuz I guess they were having fun with it. Having played almost all of the game on 3DS up to the final boss I'd have to say this might be the best Shantae game yet, and the graphics look great in 3D. I almost enjoy the art style of this game (and Risky's Revenge) better than the 1/2 Genie Hero art, but we'll see.



bofis commented on Review: Tetris Ultimate (3DS):

@Ralizah Agreed, I'd love to hear a more in-depth comparison against TetrisDS, which I still carry with me always and play on my 3DS. How are the Vs. CPU modes? Didn't Marathon used to be until LVL20? Also, shouldn't it only add a line in multiplayer if you clear 2 or more lines, as it adds one-fewer line than what you cleared? Also how is the music, and can you select different backgrounds or tracks as the default?

As for Tetris Axis, that was a huge pile of crap compared to Tetris DS and the only 3DS game I ever bought and then immediately resold...the Vs. CPU was far too easy as I could beat it immediately on the highest level. Whereas in Tetris DS, lvl 4 CPU is a good challenge, and lvl5 is basically impossible unless you get lucky.



bofis commented on Poll: Who'll Be Your Main amiibo Buddy?:

I preordered Peach for free along with my WiiU Smash mostly so my wife can have the Mii costume in Mario Kart 8, and then will pickup Yoshi for the same reason. As for using with Smash, I'll have to wait and see what character is my favorite and also for Toon Link and others to come out.



bofis commented on Review: Tengami (Wii U eShop):

I've been looking forward to this for a while and will definitely pick it up, though are there any eshop card Black Friday deals coming up? ;-)



bofis commented on Review: The Swapper (Wii U eShop):

Having already bought this title on PC it would be super nice if there was some sorta cross-buy promotion or even discount for current owners who want it on WiiU instead or for the map ;-)



bofis commented on 8 Player Smash Mode Confirmed For Wii U Super ...:

I really hope they release additional colors and designs of WiiU Pro controllers, that's what I wanna play Smash on and so far only black and white, if I'm getting 8 I'd like them to be different or fun



bofis commented on The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword 3DS HOME Th...:

@iphys UGH, I did the same thing! I enjoy the music, and overall theme, but it's super lame that the initial image is NOT the one shown in the preview, and is instead Link merged in the wall. I keep my icons so I don't have to scroll, so I almost never get to see the castle part of the image, which is dumb. I wish they let you customize themes slightly, set different background music, or even change where the scrolling wallpaper begins.



bofis commented on These GameCube-style Mario Bros. Controllers O...:

These are a way better option than the Gamecube controllers with adapter...though I also really like the WiiU Pro Controller and wish they'd release that in other designs/colors besides just black and white!



bofis commented on Curve Studios Outlines Release Details of Four...:

I wish developers had announced games coming to WiiU like this earlier, as I already own most of these on PC and would have totally waited! But I refuse to double-dip as I feel there should be more cross-buy options in general (esp WiiU and 3DS)



bofis commented on Video: New Nintendo 3DS Unboxing And Hands On:

How comfortable is it to hold the new 3DS compared with the old one. I'm especially concerned about the cart slot and power buttons along the bottom edge where I usually rest the system on my pinky fingers :-



bofis commented on Video: Footage Surfaces of Cancelled Wii Star ...:

This looks amazing, I would buy this game tomorrow if it came out in HD on WiiU...the 1:1 lightsaber fighting is what I wanted to exist on Wii the entire time, and the Rogue Squadron levels also look great.



bofis commented on Hardware Review: The New Nintendo 3DS Is The B...:

Could you post some comparison shots with this vs. the original, smaller 3DS instead of just the XL? I'm still rocking the original teal 3DS and am concerned over any size increases when moving to this model as I've always liked the compact size of the 3DS/DS Lite which were basically the same small size.

Also, how is the comfort of holding the new system in your hands, especially if you were to rest the bottom of the system on your two pinky fingers, making it easier to press, and hold, L or R such as in Mario Kart? I find that I always grip my 3DS so that my two pinky fingers are resting under the bottom, propping up the device slightly. I fear that the new power button and cart slot will make this less comfortable :-



bofis commented on FAQ: Super Smash Bros. For Nintendo 3DS:

But will you be able to transfer unlocked characters, stages, and other things from the 3DS version over to the WiiU one, or should I just wait, and unlock everything on WiiU since I'll have to regardless?



bofis commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

This is why I'm just hoping they release more colors of the WiiU Pro Controller, which is a great feeling controller, will work very well for Smash Bros, and also will work with many many other games making it a far better value to invest in rather than new Gamecube controllers and adapters...oh, and they're wireless!



bofis commented on Video: Take a Look at All of the 3DS HOME Menu...:

I wish the themes were more customizable, like ability to change the background music track, or even change where the wallpaper starts. The Zelda theme shows the castle and Link holding his sword in the photo, but on the first page (the only screen I'll ever see because I zoom out my icons) it shows Link merged with the wall, and you have to scroll to the side to see the castle. I would like the castle to be the part of the image in the beginning, especially since that's what they showed. That being said, the Toad House music in the Mushroom theme is by far the most appropriate music for the home menu of all the current themes. I just hope Nintendo starts giving away themes to Club Nintendo members, or even to anyone who buys games associated with a theme because $2 is too much for a light coat of paint over just the home menu. I bought Zelda, and I'm mostly happy with it, but I have no desire to buy anymore now either.



bofis commented on Wii U System Update 5.2.0 Brings Folders, New ...:

YAY, I've been craving folders since the day they introduced that feature on WiiU menu is so cluttered and spanning multiple pages, will be way nicer if I can toss stuff into to decide how to organize stuff



bofis commented on Actos Games Announces Wii U eShop Exclusive ps...:

Always love seeing developers actually take advantage of the WiiU Gamepad, especially when it lends itself to better uses than I've seen on almost any touchscreen game for phones, like the touch levels in Rayman that are the single best use of a touch screen in a platformer I've seen.



bofis commented on Nintendo 64x64: Wave Race 64:

There has been no greater satisfaction for me than unlocking the dolphin mode in this game by doing every single trick on a stunt run.



bofis commented on Nintendo Confirms Development of Games That Wi...:

As long as the games work on the older 3DS and 2DS systems, and just work better or differently on the new ones, that's fine. Sorta like how Game Boy Color games would play in color on a GBC, but if they were the black carts, they'd play fine on the original Game Boy



bofis commented on Review: Super Mario Ball (Wii U eShop / Game B...:

I'd much rather they released this on the 3DS EShop, maybe even with 3D visuals, but I don't really see the appeal for WiiU nearly as much so I'll be skipping it. Now if Nintendo wanted to offer some kinda cross-buy for VC titles, I'd think again
