Dizzard commented on Poll: Have Your Say on Nintendo Direct Bonanza...:

Hmm, I voted for all the most popular options.

I enjoy them once a month, the anticipation is great. Even though I loved the smash direct, there's something to be said for general directs because you don't know what to expect. Anything could be revealed.



Dizzard commented on First Impressions: Tomodachi Life:

As an Irish person I wonder if it'll be too jarring listening to Miis with British accents....

So much interests me about this game but at the same time so much makes me feel uncertain. It's odd.



Dizzard commented on First Impressions: Tomodachi Life:

This game really intrigues me and the direct was completely bonkers.

Do we know how much it will cost? €44 -€49 seems like an awful lot to pay for a game you're just watching most of the time.

If it was being sold for €30 or under I think I'd be more encouraged to go for it.



Dizzard commented on Masahiro Sakurai Rules Out Story Sequences For...:

I liked the subspace emissary but I won't miss it.

Really I would be happier if we had more levels based on the different franchises with enemies from the games themselves i.e Goombas, Octoroks, Various pokemon, Metroids etc

Rather than focusing so much on cinematics, after all the subspace emissary was all flash...there wasn't really that coherent or interesting a storyline in it.



Dizzard commented on Rumour: Nintendo Is Shaping Up To Acquire Trou...:

I was wondering, I'm not fully clear on this but....

If Nintendo buy Atlus, do they gain ownership of all their IPs? Or do they have to buy the IPs individually from Index Corporation? I'm thinking it's the former, that'll all be in one package but I'm not 100% sure.

What game franchises do Atlus own? Shin Megami Tensei, Etrian Oddesey, Trauma Center, Catherine (I think)......any others?

Just noticed that Atlus developed Radiant Historia on the DS. Not sure if Nintendo would turn that into a series...but it's still interesting.



Dizzard commented on Rumour: Nintendo Is Shaping Up To Acquire Trou...:

Thinking about it now.....

If Nintendo has any interest in keeping Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem afloat (I imagine they wouldn't start a project they didn't care about) they'll be interested in acquiring Atlus. So the question isn't "Are they interested?" but "How interested are they?".

The thought of Shin Megami Tensei in smash bros please me greatly also.



Dizzard commented on Rumour: Nintendo Is Shaping Up To Acquire Trou...:

I really hope this happens, although I mainly hope Sony or Microsoft don't pick them up. The last sony console I owned was a ps2 and I've never owned an it would pretty much be goodbye to the shin megami tensei series for me if that happened. :(

I hope Nintendo will be vicious if they end up in a bidding war.

It does make sense, Nintendo have the most to gain from acquiring them.



Dizzard commented on Atlus Parent Company Reportedly Preparing To S...:

I would love to see Atlus bought by Nintendo. I suppose I have some bias but I honestly would feel the most comfortable with Nintendo supporting them.

Do you think there's a chance Nintendo would be interested?



Dizzard commented on Review: EarthBound (Wii U eShop):

Pretty disappointed it's only on the Wii U and not the 3DS virtual console.

I'll probably pick up a Wii U one day when the games are better....but even still it would have been nice to play it on the more portable 3DS. If it went up on the 3DS eShop today I'd buy it in a heartbeat.



Dizzard commented on New Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies Trailers Re...:

I'll buy it anyway, the M rating doesn't exclude me.

It's unfortunate though, the rating can't help get more purchases. If any parents are reading this....if this game is anything like previous games in the series I wouldn't be concerned about teens playing it.



Dizzard commented on Chibi-Robo Photography (3DS eShop) Off-Screen ...:

I really hope this game comes to the west, it should have a chance since it's an eShop title.

I've never played a Chibi Robo game before but I've always been interested. Would definitely get it if they released in Europe.



Dizzard commented on Let Camelot Know If You Want Another Golden Sun:

Personally I really enjoyed Dark Dawn. (and I've played the first two games)

The only thing I will say is that it felt a little odd overall.....I mean I got this impression that we were meant to explore more of the world but then they realized they had no time left and abruptly brought the game to a close. It was just odd.

I would love to see a Golden Sun game on the 3ds though, I would definitely get it. The only thing I would say is I hope they take the time to give Golden Sun the 4th game it deserves.



Dizzard commented on Zelda-Inspired Ittle Dew Heading To The Wii U ...:

The tagline should have been

"It's no Zelda but ittle dew."

In a way I don't see the issue with this, Nintendo aren't making Zelda games with hand drawn 2d graphics any what's the big deal? It's not like Ittle Dew is encroaching on their space.



Dizzard commented on Miyamoto: Fresh Experiences Make A New Game, N...:

I think there's still a lot to be said for creating a new world and set of characters to enjoy though.

I see where he's coming from but on the other hand I feel like it's doing new characters/worlds a disservice. There's something a new franchise offers that an old and familiar franchise will just never be able to offer.



Dizzard commented on Nintendo Direct: Denpa Men 3 And Chibi-Robo AR...:

The Chibi Robo games looks fun, even though AR is often a bit iffy for me.

I've never played a Chibi Robo game before, but have always wanted to. I think this has a fair chance of making it over here....considering Nintendo want to bring more games to western audiences, it doesn't look like a text heavy game and it'll be on the eShop, which is the perfect home for niche titles.

On another note, I would love to see Chibi Robo appear in smash bros. Before today that probably would have been very unlikely...but now there's a slight chance.



Dizzard commented on Nintendo's Claim to is Denied:

@Araknie I don't understand how somebody can buy a domain name legally and then be called out in the wrong afterwards? Isn't that how business works? You buy something in the hopes you can make more money by selling it later.

They bought the domain legally and now Nintendo have to buy it from them. Tough luck for Nintendo. That's just how it works.



Dizzard commented on Miiverse Update Doubles Character Limit for Posts:

Probably one of the main reasons I could never use twitter. I feel like it's almost impossible for me to want to say anything under 140 characters. (especially if I'm talking about a game I like) I can't imagine having only 100 characters.



Dizzard commented on Weirdness: Level-5's Favourite Character Poll ...:

Well people do like aeroplanes.

I hope they uphold what they said they would do regardless. You reap what you sow after all, for better or worse.

It looks more like a favourite inazuma eleven character poll to me, except you don't see many aeroplanes playing soccer.



Dizzard commented on Poll: Are You in the DLC Brigade?:

More often than not I don't find dlc to be worth the money. Even more so these days with steam/gog sales and humble indie bundles. There's just so many other better options out there and you can buy really great deep games for cheap. I feel like I would be an idiot if I went around buying dlc just because I bought the base game.

I can't recall ever being excited by a piece of dlc, they usually come across incomplete, without an identity of their own, just tacked onto the base game. Best case scenario I get brief enjoyment out of it, worst case scenario I feel completely unsatisfied with my purchase. I'd rather pay 10-20 euros on something I could stick my teeth into.

Granted I hear this Luigi DLC has something like 100 new levels, so that seems more worthwhile than the norm but I'm not a huge platformer fan so I wouldn't buy it anyway.

I have Fire Emblem: Awakening but I'd be more interested in buying the dlc if they either did some kind of bundle deal with them all together at a discounted price (even if just for a few days as a sale) or if they made new dlc that had a new story campaign. Otherwise I'm not interested in picking up tiny tidbits of content.



Dizzard commented on Nintendo "Would Consider" Making Free-To-Play ...:

If it means buying pieces of furniture or shirts for something like 1 euro a pop then you can count me absolutely not interested.

I won't say it's impossible for a free to play game to impress me, just that it would have to do a LOT to impress me.

There's nothing worse than playing a game and feeling like you have a shadow following you around trying to sell you something, for me it really sucks the fun out of a game.



Dizzard commented on Not All Super Smash Bros. Characters Will Make...:

I think Wario and Yoshi will definitely make it.
I think there could be a casualty between King Dedede or Meta Knight.
Wolf might not make it either along with the obvious Toon Link.
Ike will probably be cut in favour of Chrom.
Lucas....I'm not sure they might just keep Ness since he's been in there since Melee and forget about Lucas.
Olimar might be cut in favour of one of the newer captains...but it'll depend on his role in Pikmin 3.

Also if the character roster is different between the 3DS and Wii U I would say that increases the odds of a Golden Sun rep on the 3DS version. Since all their games are handheld ones.

As someone else mentioned, I would really like if they added new characters as dlc too. That would solve some of the time issues.



Dizzard commented on Masahiro Sakurai Demonstrates Super Smash Bros...:

You know, people can say what they like but I really think Villager and Wii Fit Trainer look awesome.

Villager has such an interesting diverse arsenal of moves and the trainer is really graceful and her attacks actually look quite powerful and precise.

Looking forward to trying out all three of the new characters.



Dizzard commented on Thinking Of Buying Animal Crossing: New Leaf? ...:

I'm getting physical but I don't really care between the two. It's just nice to actually go to a shop and pick it up. It feels like more of an occasion.

I'm not traumatized at the thought of having to spend 3 seconds switching 3ds carts.



Dizzard commented on Nintendo Download: 13th June (Europe):

Unfortunate for Harvest Moon, that release was very poorly timed.

I want to play another Harvest Moon game at some point....but I'm more interested in New Leaf right now.



Dizzard commented on Feature: Our Top 10 Third-Party 3DS Games - Su...:

My favourite third party 3DS game would be Tales of The Abyss. When Ace Attorney 5 comes out it'll take the top spot though I think.

Not that impressive a top ten....although I would like to give Zero Escape a go at some point.



Dizzard commented on Ian Livingstone: Nintendo Should Have Their IP...:

Ultimately it's hardly Nintendo's fault if people are missing out on their games. There's only so much they can do.

They can't just throw their games at every platform just because some people might miss out. Those people should get a Nintendo console if they're so desperate not to miss out.



Dizzard commented on Round Table: Let's Talk About the 3DS:

3DS is finally coming into it's own this year....and it's not even finished with the great games either: Animal Crossing, New Leaf, Shin Megami Tensei, Ace Attorney, Pokemon XY, Bravely Default, Phoenix Wright vs Professor Layton (?), Fantasy Life (?), Youkai Watch (?) and those are only the ones I'm personally interested in.

The ? are because I'm not sure if we'll get them...but they're more possible because Nintendo said they wanted more Japan made games to make it across + the eShop makes it easier to localize games that wouldn't otherwise.

It's hard to keep up with them all, kinda annoying how the first two years were so quiet and now everything is coming at once....



Dizzard commented on Poll: Do You Follow and Watch Rival Console Re...:

I don't closely follow them however I frequent general gaming websites so I collect a general gist just when I'm casually browsing the latest news. I'm more interested in the games than the consoles themselves really. The consoles are just a means to an end.

For me right now it's all about the 3DS and PC. I haven't bought a Wii U yet and I'm not sure if I will in the near future.



Dizzard commented on Fresh Pokémon X And Y Details Emerge: New Pok...:

@warnerdan I think the Pokemon Red/Blue games are only the "best pokemon games ever" from a nostalgic point of view.

I think somebody new playing it today would be at least a bit disappointed. Particularly if they had one of the newer games (that they played first) to compare it to.



Dizzard commented on Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies ...:

While I prefer physical copies, a download only version isn't going to stop me playing this game.

The only ace attorney related game I haven't played so far is the second investigations one...and I don't plan on adding a second game to that list if I can avoid it.

I guess the only thing now is that I'll have to upgrade my 2gb sd card.....
