gefflt commented on Gallery: Nintendo Celebrates Women's History M...:

Good idea and decent execution but (devil's advocate here) it only highlights the fact that many of Nintendo's female characters are still very much representations of gender-specific stereotypes; two of them are pink, three are wearing either a skirt or a dress, etc. Oh, and they're all caucasian. : /

@AshFoxX Thanks! Calling the car mechanic from Mario Party 9 the "classic mode" seems purposely misleading!?

And yes, I also think having the option of playing game boards in the true "classic mode" (everyone moves independtly) or in one moving car would be the best/most logical option.



gefflt commented on Gallery: This Custom Mario Party N64 is a Sigh...:

@Josaku I'm pretty sure Mario Party 10 does feature the "classic mode" where everyone can move independently from one another. Currently, only one board uses the same play style as Mario Party 9 (where everyone moves together in a car), this time while trying to escape Bowser.



gefflt commented on Review: Yoshi's New Island (3DS):

Haven't played the game (still debating) but what from what I've read, the Yoshi Star does not sound like a new addition as it did the exact same thing in Yoshi's Island DS...



gefflt commented on Nintendo Confirms Rambi's Return in Donkey Kon...:

That's great news! ...but a bit predictable.

What we need is the return of Enguarde, Squitter, Rattly and Squawks (as an animal buddy, not an item). These 4 animal buddies, along with Rambi, all have radically different controls and would add a lot more to the game, just like they did back in the original series.



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

The author says "Zelda is represented as an imposing warrior. But, as Sarkeesian points out, she is only able to achieve this disguised as a man".

Well, if you're going to go there, let's point out that Link accomplishes absolutely everything in this game while wearing (what strongly looks like) a skirt. With that in mind, the entire "sexist" section of the author's argument crumbles.

All other arguments can be discarded pretty easily too but I'll leave that fun task to other! ;)



gefflt commented on Video: Dixie Kong Struts Her Stuff in This New...:

Donkey Kong Country Returns was great but THIS is the game I was waiting for.

Not only does it looks stunning but the level design seems clever and the game looks fun in general. Plus... David Wise is back! :O



gefflt commented on First Impressions: Super Mario 3D World:

Did anyone else notice that they swtiched the colours of the "MARIO" letters? It used to be: blue M, green A, yellow R, red I, and green O.
(see Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2)

I'm guessing they wanted to incorporate pink as to represent Peach...



gefflt commented on Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Hopping T...:

Dixie Kong? Water and Snow levels? David Wise as the composer?
I get a "best game ever" vibe coming!

Now please let Squawks be a playable animal buddy (and bring back others, like Enguarde, Squitter, Clapper -always loved him, don't know why-, etc.). Oh, and remixes of the awesome music from DKC2 would be AWESOME! :)



gefflt commented on Super Smash Bros. Footage Revealed, Mega Man I...:

I have to admit I've never played any Animal Crossing or Mega Man game (even though I am an avid gamer) but they did a good job of making them look like they'd be fun to play with and great additions to the Smash series.



gefflt commented on Video: Monolith Soft's X Given More Epic Footage:

Just received the soundtrack of Xenoblade Chronicles through the mail and I'm so excited to hear it!

I can't wait to play this game although I have to say I'm dreading having to explore the vast skies... exploring the grounds, while extremely fun, took enough time. :P
