I'm an obsessive game collector, and I tend to want to know everything about the games I play. I thrive on useless trivia. :P My top favourite series is Castlevania.

EarthboundBenjy commented on Majora's Mask 3D Glitch Unlocks Fierce Deity L...:

It works with any greyed-out item. For example, it allows you to pull out a bonb in Deku form. Trying this with the Giant's Mask will crash the game though.
Unfortunately, first-person camera is disabled as Fierce Deity, so you can't use this trick as him, meaning that the only items he can use are bottles and other masks.
Also, Fierce Deity cannot climb ladders (though he can climb vines), and if he tries to open a door, the game will crash.



EarthboundBenjy commented on Majora's Mask 3D Glitch Unlocks Fierce Deity L...:

Is this the bottle-dupe over Kafei's Mask / Bremen Mask method? This is a method that works pretty well if you don't have the Fierce Deity's mask already, but you lose your Kafei's Mask or Bremen Mask permanently in the process, since it becomes a bottle.
If you do in fact own the actual Fierce Deity's mask there's another, much simpler way to achieve FD-anywhere:

  • Have an item on X or Y that isn't greyed-out.
  • Go into first-person view.
  • Pause, go into Masks menu
  • Swap Fierce Deity's Mask with one of your items
  • Notice that, for as long as you are in first-person mode, the mask is not greyed out.
  • As soon as you tap the camera icon to to return to normal view, there is a split second where the Deity Mask is not greyed out. If you can press X or Y within that split second, Link will just put it on.


EarthboundBenjy commented on Nintendo Download: 19th February (Europe):

Harmony of Dissonance gives me the feeling of "trying too hard to be the next Symphony of the Night". Circle of the Moon is much better in my opinion. By all means, play both though. It's all good. Playing as Maxim is crazy fast and exciting too.



EarthboundBenjy commented on Poll: Are You An Early Adopter With The New Ni...:

The reason I got a New 3DS is because my launch 3DS from 2011 was getting a bit worn out, most notably with half of the rubber on the circle pad having come off. I knew that the New 3DS would support games that the regular 3DS won't, so I made the decision to do my first ever system transfer to it. It's strange letting go of my 2011 3DS, I spent so much time on it, so it has definitely served me well.



EarthboundBenjy commented on Fans Demonstrate Changes From Sonic Boom: Rise...:

is it possible to remove patches on Wii U? and if so, will it affect save data?

I ask, because on you can delete patches on 3DS.
I tried deleting the Smash Bros 3DS update because I wanted to play with someone who didn't have the patch, but it said "couldn't find update data, would you like to play without your save data?"... I obviously said no. It's very scary that all of my Smash data could have been wiped if I had said 'yes' to that prompt. But it meant that, not only could I not play Smash with the other DS, I also now couldn't even open the software until I got home and redownloaded the patch. :/



EarthboundBenjy commented on Review: Fire Emblem (Wii U eShop / Game Boy Ad...:

In this game, the countries of Bern and Ostia were localised as Biran and Ositia for the EUR version, except during map scenes, it still uses the old names. It's weird and confusing, but if you know that it does this, you can ignore it and enjoy the story.



EarthboundBenjy commented on Little Mac's amiibo Appears to Have Actually B...:

on 12th December 2014, I walked into a GAME shop in Kingston, London, and I saw a few Little Mac amiibos. On that day, though, I bought Captain Falcon instead. It was my first amiibo purchase.

When I returned to the very same GAME next week, they literally only had Pikachu, Link and Samus and no-one else.

I went there two days ago, and they had like twelve Donkey Kong amiibos, three Peaches and a single Samus.

Little Mac must have gotten an incredibly small run.



EarthboundBenjy commented on Matters Of Import: Collectible Badge Centre Br...:

It counts as a new day when it becomes 4 am in Japan,which is 7 pm in the UK. They gave me two free tries as a "Christmas present", and I wasted both of them by failing to pick up a rather attractive Diddy Kong badge. Then in Practise mode, I got all but one of the practise badges, but none of them gave me any more free tries. Oh. That's that then.

I'm still not spending any real money on this, but I'm going to try for that Diddy Kong badge every day of my life until I get it.



EarthboundBenjy commented on Review: Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire (Wii...:

I had the GBA cartridge, which seemed to delete my Pokédex data sporadically. I don't think it was a save battery issue, because there were times where it deleted my Pokédex, but kept my suspended game. I eventually gave up trying to complete this game because it kept happening.
I think it was triggered by trying to switch from GBA to GameCube GB Player while there was a game suspended. This game actually checks for the GB Player because it supports the rumble feature of GCN controllers, so maybe there was some glitchy code during the check. Who knows.

I just distinctly remember having an Electrode in my Pokédex with no Voltorb, which should never be possible in this game... my suspended file was during an "evolution" round, but it had deleted records of everything caught before hand.

I still feel kind of wary about playing this game. I really don't know if it was just my copy or if the game is kinda glitchy.

So weird.



EarthboundBenjy commented on Masahiro Sakurai Admits That Super Smash Bros....:

I would be okay with no more Smash Bros games if we got the majority of the cut characters as DLC in the future, and some updates to fix some of the problems in this game, such as the inability to separate custom moves from custom equipment without just "trusting" your opponent didn't put any equips on...among other things.



EarthboundBenjy commented on Masahiro Sakurai Explains Why Mewtwo Isn't Pai...:

I sure hope that you can get Mewtwo if you don't have both versions by paying though. In a household of two or more Smashers, there will be more 3DSes than Wii Us. How will it work so that we can get Mewtwo unlocked on every Smash-playing device?



EarthboundBenjy commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Update 1.0....:

Bowser-suicide with both players at one stock results in Bowser dying FIRST!
Pac-Man can no longer launch the hydrant in a single back-air!
Pikachu's Thunder now only fills one layer of Mr G&W's bucket!
Wario's crazy momentum is fixed! Yoshi's ledge-warping and Olimar's down-smash glitch are both fixed!

These are the changes I have personally noticed.



EarthboundBenjy commented on Mario Kart: Super Circuit is Racing Onto The W...:

Multiplayer will obviously not work. I don't see why they couldn't put two GBA screens side by side and emulate a link cable between them (does anyone remember the unlockable Game Gear games in Sonic Adventure DX that did this fine?) ... but Nintendo will probably never do this for whatever reason. Who knows.



EarthboundBenjy commented on Anouma Confirms Majora's Mask 3D Has Been In D...:

it's being changed to make it easier for people who didn't like the original? Perhaps the owl statues let you straight-up save your game this time, rather than just suspend. I can't think of any other changes they could make that wouldn't substantially mess with the game..
