HyperSonicEXE commented on Meta Knight amiibo to be Best Buy Exclusive in US:

I'm really curious to see which retailer said "Hey, we want Rosalina exclusively."

I'd wager Target - they're frequent supporters of Nintendo's products, including the Super Mario Galaxy cards and random gatchas.
Wal-Mart would mean Rosalina is SUPER popular.



HyperSonicEXE commented on Video: Nintendo Releases Two Snappy amiibo TV ...:

Awful execution. The other ads are even more cringeworthy.
The visual effects at the beginning were nice even though that sequence lasted way too long, and at least they showed how many games are compatible with them, that was good.

It didn't even try to make a main point out of being able to take your customized fighter on the go.



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

"...and those of you that played it but gave up mid-way through will take this opportunity to give the new version a try."

I stopped at the Zora section (tedious as all get out) during my only other replay on the Wii VC, so I'm actually interested to hear what all they've changed.

Although...I'm not sure I'm ready to do the Cremia Ranch segment again, especially if I happen to lose...

Seriously, what were these guys thinking? Miles Prower, I get it, great, good idea, but adding the Tails nickname was much better in the end.

I'm formulating a game, but if I'm ever in a team working on it one day, I'll be more than happy to consider input because I'm just one guy with good but incredibly niche taste. And I gotta make it appeal to the masses.



HyperSonicEXE commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

Meh, I've already got so many controllers as is.
Though, if they plan on doing Gamecube games in any capacity in the future with the Wii U, this should definitely rise to the occasion, what with the pressure sensitive triggers and all.



HyperSonicEXE commented on Exclusive: Masahiro Sakurai on Planned Acciden...:

Wrong - I downloaded Balanced Brawl so all characters had a shot. Project M is nice and all, but just one flavor of Smash. 64 is even its own flavor.
Brawl and 4 are incredibly similar, however. Yeah, great that they tweaked the small stuff (more or less fixing Brawl's glaring errors), but it's not white-knuckle by any means.
Now I do like that there are so many Items that K.O., that's good, but the fighters need that knockout power, too.



HyperSonicEXE commented on Exclusive: Masahiro Sakurai on Planned Acciden...:

"I know that some sequels focus on fixing problems with the last game, but if we had taken that approach then we would have had less than half as many new characters, and the game wouldn’t have felt so different from the last one."

It already feels like Brawl. It's a nigh carbon copy except that everyone is more colorful.
I get what he's saying, but you HAVE to fix problems, and it's the aesthetics and roster that will compare it to the prior game. Technical aspects are important, but that's all for not if the baseline game isn't enjoyable or different enough. Pressing Start at the title screen and hearing Brawl's confirmation sound effect alone is a bad sign.



HyperSonicEXE commented on Talking Point: The Super Smash Bros. 3DS Demo ...:

Considering that I've been a Platinum member every bloody year, and that I was GOING to use the extra 3 codes to give to new friends I made here after I JUST moved, but didn't get the codes because of the Opt In reason,

Actually, I'm sour about the game and Nintendo in general, right now. DLC, this, it's all becoming a bit much more than I'm willing to take.
I now have half a mind to cancel my preorders (or at least sell the games after I get them), and knowing that it plays in many ways like Brawl, to NOT recommend it to people.

This did the opposite.



HyperSonicEXE commented on Weirdness: Earthbound Designer Shigesato Itoi ...:

Those people, good god.

It's a factual statement. Maybe HE LIKES/liked Fukushima peaches prior to the reactor, and is excited that they're back. And either way, it's factual - he held up a display of peaches. Those are the kind that you can buy there.

I think the reactor got to their brains.



HyperSonicEXE commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

Suffice to say, a number of you are dead-set on defending this as fact without any evidence to the timeframe of development, apparently.

I just remember a time when this content would have been included in the game for the initial outlay of my money.



HyperSonicEXE commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

That reminds me, I wonder what'll happen when I use my Rosalina Amiibo on MK8? I'd think they'd use Fire Rosalina or Cosmic Rosalina. I mean, that's assuming you get Tanooki Mario/Cat Peach/Dry Bowser when you use your Amiibo. I could be wrong.

Again, I'm assuming that Nintendo sold me a game that wasn't ever going to have DLC. Had I known that, well, I might've gotten it used or something to abate the price. Mario Kart hasn't had DLC heretofore. At least with Mario Golf: World Tour, I knew what was coming, since they were withholding already-developed content.

Again, my argument relies, hinges on the assumption that Nintendo developed this content along with the rest of the base game, and they've just been withholding it.

Yeah, it's hard to post using my S3! ^_^'



HyperSonicEXE commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

Neither of us know who is right for sure until Nintendo comes out and says something. Until then, my gut instinct says that an organization that proclaims to be "short of people" wouldn't take salaries lightly and maximized their dollar, and withheld this content until it was safe, having learned from Mario Golf: World Tour.



HyperSonicEXE commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

Let's use this example:
Nintendo completely developed MK:DD with your upfront price of $50, including the All-Cup Tour and Petey Piranha/King Boo.
But then withheld that last part from the initial release of the $50 game, just to charge you more.

This feels like that.

I'd like proof from Nintendo of that. That's my only hesitation in getting this.



HyperSonicEXE commented on Ubisoft Executive Talks Up Super Smash Bros. a...:

Nice try, but triumphant pose denied!
Relatively speaking, SSB64 is more colorful and wackier than Brawl and Melee! Even the endings to the 1P Mode had personality.
Melee's Adventure Mode was a tour of sorts, and Brawl's SSE was a bit heavy-handed. Additionally, those games' graphical presentations were not nearly as cartoonish, opting instead for detail and pseudo-realism.



HyperSonicEXE commented on Meta Knight and Pac-Man's Full Move Set and Cu...:

Especially priority.
I mean, I get why they did what they did in Brawl with the sword users - you don't use fists in a swordfight.
But this is Smash! Balancing is more important, and a lot of fist-fighters are either using special moves, have some crazy strength attributes, or could feasibly dodge or weave the sword on the way to landing a successful hit.
