bro2dragons commented on Super Smash Bros. Is Getting A Massive Update ...:

I'm cool with continuing to add more Mii costumes, but I really wish 1) they'd add more regular clothing options not specific to this or that character, and 2) they'd add some more Mii attacks. There are too few options to really make the created fighters interesting for this long. I need more possibilities in order to keep buying the costumes and playing with new Mii Fighters.

But whatever. We all know I'll still purchase everything shown here and I'm pumped about more new stages.

I got all excited for a second thinking we were actually getting more news about this, but as others have said, this is old information. I'm pretty sure it's even been posted here before.

That said I'm still stoked for this game. E3 put this game at my number three most anticipated Nintendo game with only Star Fox Zero and Fire Emblem Fates above it and bumping Xenoblade Chronicles X and The Legend of Zelda down to fifth and sixth. Good days ahead of us, folks.

bro2dragons commented on Negative Reception For Devil's Third Is Due To...:

I'm not saying Itagaki is right here, either, but this article certainly doesn't read like it's written by a journalist, something the writer wants very much for us to know he is, and something which he asserts makes him a great gamer.

I don't care how much gaming you've done in your life. Time does not equal skill. I spent nearly 1,000 hours playing Super Smash Bros. Brawl, several hundred in Project M and have put almost 500 in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (hindered only by obligations to my work and wife) already, in addition to who knows how many hours building that foundation in Melee and the original. And you know what? I'm still a decidedly AVERAGE Super Smash Bros. player. More than that, I've spent thousands upon thousands of hours gaming in nearly every genre known to man. In fact, I believe the only genre I've never played is a MOBA because I've never owned a computer good enough to. But despite this deep and wide experience with games over a continuous 20 years, all in all, I'm still a pretty poor gamer. I seriously struggle with Mega Man games, I've never beaten Super Mario Bros. 3, and I find Dark Souls predominantly unenjoyable. Time does not equal skill.

Your hurt feelings have no place in a news article, and neither does your embarrassingly flimsy defense. "Journalists." Heh. You were once. Get it together, NintendoLife.

And mocking his English in the tagline? That's not even poor form for journalists, that's shameful for people.

bro2dragons commented on Tomonobu Itagaki Explains Why the Pro Controll...:

If you're supposed to play for a long time, why would you use a Pro Controller over the Gamepad? That makes no sense. With as light as the Gamepad is, there's no way it could ever get heavy, and playing on a Pro Controller for more than about two hours will cause pretty uncomfortable hand cramps from holding your arms in such an unnatural position.

What a strange thing to say.

bro2dragons commented on Cube Life Update To Bring Local Multiplayer An...:

Hm. I might ahould pick this up. Good on the developer for continuing to build (heh) on their base game. Now, I'm just hoping future updates will be designed to add more unique features that further differentiate it from Minecraft, rather than make it more like Minecraft.

bro2dragons commented on Poll: Does Nintendo's Drive Towards Multiplaye...:

I only wish they'd keep the multiplayer-focused games on Wii U, instead of 3DS. Handhelds are so ill-suited for real multiplayer gameplay, so while I'm interested in Triforce Heroes and SUPER EXCITED for Metroid Prime: Federation Force, the latter, especially should really be on the home console, instead, where I can actually play the game with a team of my friends.

bro2dragons commented on Blast Ball is Actually the Tutorial in Metroid...:

This just keeps looking better and better. I really am stoked for this. My only wish is that they'd made this exact samw game for Wii U, so I could actually enjoy the co-op with other people. As it sounds, though, I'm sure the single player will be more than enough to keep me entertained for multiple playthroughs.

bro2dragons commented on First Impressions: Our Maiden Flight In Star F...:

This seems harsh.

Granted, I haven't played the game, so I'm sure that (like most of you) I can't actually offer a valid opinion. But I did watch all the Treehouse gameplay and saw them tackle the controls naturally. This isn't their first rodeo, I'm aware, but I'm inclined to believe the booth rep who said the controls take a few more minutes to get used to. Watching others play, once you've mastered the controls, the game looks epic and immersive and calls to mind as many Star Wars memories of Episode IV's Milleniun Falcon shootout scene, as it recalls fondness for the hundreds of hour spent in Star Fox 64.

I know I'm in the minority--in fact, I'm probably the only one--but this is still my most anticipated game of 2015 on any system.

I want this game so much, but I don't want to miss Tetra and Daphnes Hyrule and I won't be buying the game twice. I want to take advantage of the sale, but if I can't buy those two characters, then I guess I'll end up getting the 3DS game with the undoubtedly diminished scale... :(

bro2dragons commented on Exciting Hints of amiibo Restocks Can Be Found...:

Some of these need to be common. I'd feel bad for everyone who spent $60 to get one, but come on. Rosalina is has exclusive content in Smash, Mario Party 10 AND Mario Kart 8. She should be as available as Peach.

Hopefully she soon will be.

bro2dragons commented on Mighty No. 9 Features on Wii U and 3DS Version...:

Surely there will be a Miiverse community. There are very few games without one and it takes virtually no work at all to enable. I'm sure it just means no unique Miiverse functions like in-game interactions or whatever. We won't be seeing Miiverse posts pop up on the walls with tips on how to beat bosses, but I have no doubt we'll be able to pause the game to upload a screenshot and lament our terrible skills.

bro2dragons commented on Here Are Your Eight Qualifying Nintendo World ...:

@Pahvi No, you are correct, I believe. Hyperbole and miswordings are in play, however. "Probability" is the wrong word because it implies the perfect precision of mathematics, something the real world has a nasty habit of ignoring. My point was that even all things equal (and they never are in life), it's not at all inconceivable to land a roulette wheel on red eight times in a row or that the most skilled Mario and Dr. Mario players who felt like competing in those eight specific cities on that particular day (look at how many qualifying statements have to be attached to something like this) would all just happen to be born one X chromosome too few. That's just how life works. I know I've hit the same side of a coin toss eight times in a row and there are incalculably fewer variables in that equation. Why are there no black winners? Why are there none with light hair? Why do none of them have a cleft chin? Because that's just the way it so happened to work out, not because of a flaw in society that places a glass ceiling over cleft-chinned Nintendo gamers.

And we know that there are no wild, sweeping societal conclusions we can draw from this because it's one event. Statistically AND scientifically, a single occurrence is meaningless until it is tested again and again and again ad nauseam. So my only point is that this is a poor platform for cries of gender inequality and should be taken as what it is: a literal game.

bro2dragons commented on Nintendo Download: 11th June (North America):

Curve really wants to get OlliOlli off the virtual shelves. First cross buy, then two copies in the Humble Bundle and now a sale immediately after. I guess they're really banking on the exposure bringing high sales for the sequel. I hope the company's doing all right.

bro2dragons commented on Here Are Your Eight Qualifying Nintendo World ...:

Also, these comments are ridiculous. Out of literally thousands of competitors, only eight were picked as winners. ONLY EIGHT. If the people involved had been exactly 50 percent men and 50 percent women, the probability that we end up with eight men is still pretty damn high. These were the ones who happened to play the best on that day at that time in those places and nothing about that fact implies in the slightest anything about gender roles or equality or the ideals of American society.

Bollocks and hogwash, people. Let it ride.
