Flowerlark commented on Nintendo Still Working On Bringing Game Boy Ad...:

I would love to have the GBA Tales of Phantasia on my 3DS. Minish Cap and Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald/FireRed/LeafGreen would be amazing, too. Not to mention Harvest Moon More Friends of Mineral Town..... the list could go on and on.



Flowerlark commented on Nintendo Network Services Now Starting to "Ope...:

I'm a bit dissappointed that Pokemon Bank is delayed, but it is far far from the end of the world. There are bigger problems out there than playing with treeko in Kalos. So I will just exercise patience and wait for it to come out.



Flowerlark commented on Soapbox: Even With The Arrival Of PS4 And Xbox...:

I have a PS3. I do like it, but the fact that I have no desire to get a PS4 or any kind of Xbox, but have owned every major Nintendo console from GBC onwards shows where I feel the real quality gaming is. To me, Nintendo games are just more fun. The only thing I lament is that more FF and Tales games stay on Playstation than get ported to Nintendo, but they're really the only two series I love on Playstation. Nintendo has at least a dozen series I adore. And I actually own more Tales and FF games on Nintendo colsoles than my PS.



Flowerlark commented on Parent Trap: Children Are Our Future, So Let T...:

Hmmm, there are quite a few games that I keep coming back to, but I'd say the top one is Wind Waker. Even though it's a single player game, my family and friends love to sit around and watch me play it since I've run through it so many times I've become an expert at it. It's become a delight to me and family to play through it again and again, even 10 years later as we experience the WiiU remake (though we still prefer the original).



Flowerlark commented on Nintendo Download: 7th November (North America):

Maybe picking up Wario's Woods on my 3DS, but I haven't really decided yet, so I didn't vote.

I never use the stand with KI:U. Mostly because I have to hold the 3DS very close (bad eyesight) so being hunched over the stand on a table would be pretty uncomfortable.



Flowerlark commented on Soapbox: The Wii U Virtual Console Needs to Fr...:

Agreed with everything Thomas has said. I got into video games kind of late for my age- I started with the Gamecube when I was in my late teens- and so immensely enjoyed VC games like Link's Awakening on my 3DS that I had missed when they were new. But the watered down stuff they give now? I have no nostalgia to power my purchases, and all I see is old shovelware, dotted with the odd game actually worth playing. I think that GBA games would be phenominal on the 3DS, even though I still have all my favourites and a GBA that still works great, I'd love to have them on my 3DS and have them all on one system without lugging the carts around everywhere. I can't see why nintendo deliberately won't give consumers a lot of what they want when ports should be fairly painless. It seems an odd practise for a company who's trying to make money. I'm getting more and more frustrated about it and probably would have switched over to Playstation, except that Nintendo's games are far more fun to me.



Flowerlark commented on UK Retailers Break Release Date for Pokémon X...:

Auuuugggh, is it tomorrow yet?!?!?!?

I'm just keeping my internet surfing to a minimum and not reading other comments until I've had a chance to play the games myself. I'm on tenterhooks over these games, so I'm trying hard not to spoil it too much for myself.



Flowerlark commented on News Site Claims That Zelda "Takes A Dim View ...:

Hmmm, I do kinda agree on the sexist slant, but the rest of it? He's just digging for things to jab at. I must admit that as a woman playing video games, I'm a little tired of women being portrayed as damsels in distress... but I love Zelda games so much that even if I never get to play as Zelda rescuing Link (my ultimate gaming dream) I'll still keep playing them.



Flowerlark commented on Pokémon X & Y Torchic Distribution Announced:

Torchic, Bulbasaur, and either Chespin or Froakie. I actually don't like any of the kalos starters, so I'll be bumping whichever I choose off my team as soon as I can. :P. Can't say I really like Torchic, either. It was my least favourite of the Hoenn bunch. In fact, Gen I was the only time I liked all three, so maybe I'll just be using one of those for my starter, provided we get them early in the game.



Flowerlark commented on Out Now: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD:

Already have it since I preordered the limited WiiU bundle. Been enjoying my old favourite immensely, though I still view the GC version as flawless. In fact, I still prefer that version, as the overly sparkly HD graphics can be hard on the eyes at times..



Flowerlark commented on More Than 1500 Cheaters Took Part in Pokémon'...:

I admit I've hacked pokemon in the past, but NEVER battled/ traded them. I just liked to be able to look at some of the event pokes on my game. I wouldn't ever actually use them, especially against another player... even though when I hacked them I gave them completely normal base stats/ moves/ abilities/ etc. I think people who use hacked pokemon in competitions are rotten cheaters and should be ashamed of themselves.



Flowerlark commented on Nintendo Download: 9th May 2013 (North America):

I kinda almost wish I had a WiiU with which to play Chasing Aurora. None of the e-shop offerings are all that tantalizing. More Circle shovelware, a frantic, unfair puzzle game, or a sickeningly dizzying racing game.

Yeeeeaaaah, nothing for me. Still holding out hope for Harvest Moon GBC to come soon.



Flowerlark commented on Orion's Odyssey: A Pattern Blocks Adventure Re...:

So much hate in these comments...

@Damo- I agree with you, dude. I also like the kickstarter coverage because it introduces me to small game projects- some of which I'm interested in. I now own a limited edition Diamond Trust of London thanks to Nintendo Life, A jewel I'd never have found on my own.



Flowerlark commented on Review: Color Commando (DSiWare):

@zipmon- I liked Rabi Laby but it was too hard for me (sad, I know). O_O I'd say DodoGo was my favourite. I liked Zoonies and Catrap an awful lot too. I don't know if Castle of Magic or Shantae: RR count as puzzle-platformers or just plain platformers, but I loved those as well. Minis March Again and Mighty Switch Force were awfully fun, but much too hard for me a little over halfway in.



Flowerlark commented on Puzzler World 2013:

@grumblegrumble- It's similar to XL, but features some new puzzles that I found to be a bit more challenging than what was in XL. Definitely a cerebral workout at times and I'm quite pleased with it. I'm no reviewer, but that's my 2¢.



Flowerlark commented on These Screens Show What NES Games Would Be Lik...:

I guess I'm a modern gamer. I like games that I can finish without screaming at them. To me video games are for de-stressing, not to be frustrating.

What they should do is have optional tutorials/ hand-holding. Something that you select at the beginning of the game or something.
