dinosauryoshi commented on Poll: Which is Your Favourite Super Smash Bros...:

I was pretty certain Falcon would be back anyway (although I'm glad it's confirmed) so I'm going to go with Lucina as my favourite announcement this week. She looks cool. As for favourites I really can't decide. Should they decide to include Cranky Kong he'll pretty much instantly be my favourite but as it is I'll have to wait for the actual game to come out until I can decide. Really hyped for this game now!

dinosauryoshi commented on Sakurai Explains Why Chrom Didn't Make It Into...:

Good reasoning and I'm getting more and more hyped for this Smash! Still hoping for Cranky to join but I guess that's unlikely, although I feel he'd definitely add some variety. Yeah it seems Lucina just upgraded from being an alt to having her own roster slot due to the slight difference, I'd rather she was slightly different than just an alt so all's good with me!

dinosauryoshi commented on Sony: PS4 Is "Welcoming Back" Wii Owners Who S...:

Seems like a load of nonsense. More likely old 360 owners making the switch as I think a lot of Wii owners had a second console anyway. PS has always been my second console and I like my PS3 but I can't see me getting the PS4 for a good while because there are still no games on it that I'm interested in and there doesn't seem to be many on the way either. I think the Wii U will be my main machine for some time to come although I've still got a few PS3 games I'm wanting to play.

Not in a rush to get this either. Will get the set as a physical copy when the price drops a little so I can play it against my little brother when I'm babysitting him. I'd never really play these alone and online doesn't really appeal to me.

dinosauryoshi commented on Stats Suggest That UK Kids Are More Likely To ...:

@Farmboy74 nooooo, think of the children!

On a more serious note this statistic doesn't surprise me at all. Parents would rather lend their kids their iPad to play on than get a 3DS. I think the handheld market will definitely continue to be dented by smartphone/tablet gaming but I think there'll always be a market for handhelds due to the increased precision etc and wider gameplay opportunities actually having buttons creates. I hope this'll be the case anyway.

I'm sure this won't impact on the single player so it's fine with me. I'm not too bothered about it being included though. Zelda is just fine as a one player experience in my books, however if Aonuma comes up with a multiplayer mode that's good, well that's a bonus.

I'll get it but can't see myself using it often. Still I don't mind Nintendo doing this now and again as long as it doesn't take over, and I doubt it will. What we really need though is more characters and a few arenas please. Go on Ninty, you know you want to.

Having only just got the Wii U with MK 8 a few weeks ago I'm still working through a rather large backlog so nothing for me this week! Pullblox has been added to the list though, looks good.

dinosauryoshi commented on First Impressions: Enjoying the Craft of Yoshi...:

@JaxonH agreed! I love bright colourful games and it probably is mainly because they take me back to my childhood years! I love feeling like a kid again and Nintendo games always do that to me.

In other news 2015 is going to be amazing. This, Splatoon, (hopefully) Zelda U, Starfox. Can't wait.

Oh and I hope they make a woolly yoshi amiibo. That'd be all kinds of great.

Personally I like the gamepad. I don't really use off TV play but it's mega useful for browsing and I think it's probably the most comfortable controller I've ever used. My girlfriend thought it was ridiculous at first but now she loves it.

dinosauryoshi commented on First Impressions: Solving the Puzzle of Capta...:

Just started playing Super Mario 3D World a couple of days ago and I absolutely love it. I've very much enjoyed the toad levels so far and this'll almost certainly be a day one purchase for me like so many of the other games Nintendo showed us at this year's E3. I'm a very happy Wii U owner right now! Can't wait to hear more.

Star Fox is sounding great. Initially I just wanted one similar to the N64 game but I'm liking all the new ideas I've heard a lot. Can't wait to see a little of it in action!

As for Mario Maker I've never been really into building my own levels on games but I certainly look forward to playing levels other people create.

dinosauryoshi commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3?:

Nintendo nailed it. The digital event was much more entertaining than the live broadcasts and the treehouse stuff was really great, giving great insight into the depth of gameplay in the titles. The majority of the games revealed have me really interested. Brilliant stuff.

dinosauryoshi commented on Video: Nintendo Unleashes Its Official E3 2014...:

I've thoroughly enjoyed E3 this year. What a great showing from Nintendo. The highlight for me was Splatoon. It just came out of nowhere and although I wasn't completely sure at first the more they explained it the more excited I got, watching the Treehouse guys play it the next day really cemented it as my most anticipated game on any format. Zelda also looked amazing and I can't wait to see more of it. Besides those, Woolly World, Captain Toad and of course Smash Brothers have me very excited too. I love how Nintendo focused on gameplay rather than endless CGI cut-scene type stuff and I thought the Treehouse was a great idea and I really hope it returns next year. For me Nintendo's showing was far better than Sony's or Microsoft's. Well done Nintendo, you reminded me why I've been such a fan for all these years!

Oh and I'm pretty excited about these amiibos too!
