flummerfelt commented on New Nintendo Selects Titles Coming to Australi...:

Why are games in Australia so expensive? $80 just seems like a lot for a new game, and $50 is a lot for a new select. I don't know the value of the dollar there though, so I'm lost. Especially since the Nintendo selects are so expensive, and you can get them for $15 over here in the states.

flummerfelt commented on Soapbox: Why Grand Theft Auto V Isn't For Me:

I'm only 21, but I haven't played a GTA game since the old top down view days of the earlier entries. It was kinda fun back then, but now...not so much. I find the hype for this game kind of funny, but I guess most people play this and black ops 2 nowadays. I honestly think the series now is a bit worthless, but I don't have to buy it so its whatever. I just think it's sad that this is the game that gets all the perfect reviews and hype when there are others that are way more deserving, in my opinion.

@LDXD I know why I was confused- they released Battle of Olympus on the gameboy as well. But yeah I've always wanted to try it out!
I recently picked up Crystalis on the NES, I haven't played it yet though. Interesting that it was made by SNK. (Assuming we are talking about the same game)

I just commented about this game in another topic but ill say this: Zelda II is an amazing game. If you love Zelda & want a challenge, try it out! If you like it, check out Faxanadu on the NES. Side scrolling adventure, with a more creepy atmosphere.

flummerfelt commented on Nintendo Download: 12th September (North America):

@XCWarrior I really enjoy Zelda II actually. There are frustrating elements to it, but something about it has a charm to me. I really like the side scrolling madness along with its difficulty, and the leveling up system was pretty cool. It also reminded me of Faxanadu, which is always a good thing. I understand why people don't like it, but I me it'll always be one of my favorite Zelda games along with ALttP & OoT.

Also- I think it was relieving to have a bit more sense if where to go in Zelda 2, as opposed to Zelda 1 where you wander around like a drunken kid with no direction haha. (Don't get me wrong, I really like Zelda 1, I just enjoyed the change of pace in 2.)

flummerfelt commented on Nintendo Launching Cloud-Based Pokémon Bank S...:

I wasn't too thrilled about paying for this service at first, but think about it. Nintendo had Pokemon box & ranch to store Pokemon, and those discs probably cost $30 to $40 each, but people bought it with no complaints. Also- remember that the price doesn't cover space exclusively, but server space as well.If price is your concern, then this bank thing isn't that big of a deal, as it would take 5-7 years before you spent as much as you had on the other storage options. I still don't know if I'll use the service, but I think it's a cool option, especially for people who want to start a new game.

flummerfelt commented on Hardware Review: N64 Hori Mini Pad:

Got one of these last year for around $60. Though I still use my original for some games, especially goldeneye, the hori pad is pro for games like smash bros and f zero.

I've always enjoyed North American game names slightly more, but I think regional differences are quite interesting. I never did like "Starwing" though. Earthbound will always be Earthbound to me, as Mother seems a little too far out for an RPG title, imo.

I grew up with Melee, so that's the one ill always prefer. Ill never forget having all the guys over after school and playing for hours, what a phenomenal game. I also really enjoy the stages in Melee more, by far. Except for poke floats, what an evil level...

Shining Force and Columns!
It's funny, when I first played The Genesis version of Columns on the Ps3 collection, I totally dismissed it as a Tetris-esque ripoff...but then I couldn't stop playing it! Now I can't get enough of the series, and realize that it stands pretty well on it's own.
Haven't played shining force, but ill give it a shot!

flummerfelt commented on Mario Golf: World Tour Pushed Back To 2014:

Not too big of a deal, since there really are tons of games out/coming out for 3DS this year. Bummer though, since it's probably a 6+ month delay, and I was pretty hyped for this one. At least they didn't delay Pokemon!

flummerfelt commented on Pokémon X & Y Gearing Up the Hype Train for N...:

@Doma I really hope they stick with random encounters. I don't think it's archaic, just a different style of game. Besides, random encounters are a tradition in Pokemon, and I think they work well in the games. I'm still on the fence about whether I like the way they changed Dragon Quest yet anyway.

As far as game details go, it would be great to get a ton of X & Y info around e3, especially since there's so much we don't know yet. October needs to get here soon.

flummerfelt commented on Masahiro Sakurai Confirms Smash Bros. Reveal F...:

So ready for these games. Brawl was great, but I really hope that the new SSB game can be as top notch as Melee was. Maybe I have a soft spot for it since it's the first one I played... But regardless, ill probably purchase both on day one. Gotta love Smash!

flummerfelt commented on Review: Animal Crossing: New Leaf (3DS):

I remember playing AC on the GameCube, & it was one of the reasons I bought a DS when Wild World came out. The way New Leaf looks so far makes me think it'll be the best one yet. Definitely a day 1 purchase, even though I'm overloaded with amazing 3ds titles.
