invictus4000 commented on Video: Feast Your Eyes On The Brand New Bravel...:

Spiffy trailer. But I will not purchase unless the three major problems that killed the first one's great potential are fixed: (1) You can actually explore towns as opposed to only being able to visit the shops. (2) Dungeons are more than just mazes peppered with treasure boxes. From footage we have seen, it looks like they will be generally the same, which is disappointing. I wish they would be dynamic pre-rendered backgrounds like in FF7, 8, and 9. (3) That last half of the game....MAN it's unbelievable to me that that whole portion slipped through the cracks and made it to the final product. I'll keep it generally spoiler free...but I would have totally been cool with that plot twist if it only happened once but that many times?? Unforgivable. I was flabbergasted.
Anyway, this is a game I really WANT to like since I was super hyped about the original until I played through it and it punched me in the gut with the above listed flaws. I'll have to wait and see what improvements were made.
On a side note...(spoiler free) that other major plot twist near the end...regarding that secret that was right in front of you the whole game was SOOOO cool. That title screen....gives me chills.

Oh Nintendo...when will you ever, ever, EVER include voicechat for anything? It seriously drives me nuts. And if they use the excuse that they are blocking inappropriate communication then simply restrict the feature to only work with people on your friends list!

Never played this one so I am really feeling it. Probably gonna buy as soon as it comes out. I heard April 10th is the magic number but was that a release for NA or Japan? Also...does anybody know how Amiibo is integrated?
I gotta get crackin' on my games backlog. Still gotta beat Majora, Metroid Prime on Wii U (both for first time), and then I've got about 4 others I'm currently replaying. All before this, Chronicles X, Mario Maker, Star Fox U, and Zelda U come out!

@Bolt_Strike
As they said in the article, the sole reason they made a point to mention NX was to reassure the masses that thier new deal with the mobile company wasn't going to interfere with their traditional game development. They needed the prematurely announce the development of NX to keep the share holders and fanbase stable.

invictus4000 commented on Reaction: The Nintendo 'NX', and Why We Think ...:

Crazy stuff but sounds cool. Im particularly excited with the phrase "brand new concept" in regards to NX. I love the Wii and DS families but I think we are in the last phase of them now. If the NX innovates for the gaming world how the Wii did, its going to be very cool! My mind is racing thinking what that could be. Also...I agree that people saying this will be upon us anytime before 2018 are crazy. Nintendo needs a good amount of time to flesh out the idea, test it, market it efficiently and then produce it and finally launch it. What I am most curious to see however, is if Nintendo will finally fix the problem that has always ailed them and that no matter how much they say they will do it right next time, they never do: HAVE A STRONG LAUNCH WITH AAA LAUNCH TITLES.

Awesome keyboarding, bro! I share all of your feelings about this, the single greatest game in history. There are just too many memories and emotional attachments to this game to mention but one is the end credits song, To Far Away Times, which brings a tear to my eye every time. I even heard it played live by the Utah Symphony and I was crying like a baby. Haha.
I had to chuckle when you mentioned your tradition of naming Marle the name of your current crush. I did that too! (As I'm sure every 90's RPGer did.) With voice-acting featured in most RPG's now, that's just one of those little things that I loved about old-school RPG's that has died with time. :(
If anybody wants to check it out, I drew a CT picture in Colors!3D which you can view below (it took for bloody ever) but if you can view it on the 3DS itself and see the 3D effect, it looks much, much better:

invictus4000 commented on Chrono Trigger Turns 20, but is Ultimately Tim...:

My favorite game of all time and the sole reason I started playing video games hard core. I remember riding my bike a half an hour across town each Saturday in elementary school to rent it, hoping my save file was still there. I remember this game capturing my imagination like nothing I'd ever exprienced before and it still does even today as a 30 year old. If youve never played this game, close down your computer right now and make it happen.

@Kage_88
I agree completely. It's EXTREMELY hard to nail an adaption of something like Zelda. Although I have to say the costume side of things in this looked better than most. Usually people make the world around him all realistic and then his sword and shield and clothes are like cosplay items- bright and colorful with no natural wear and tear.
Anyway, I'm still clinging to hope with these live-action possibilities through Netflix. Let's all remember that the Lord of the Rings was once upon a time deemed 'unfilmable'. And PJ's original trilogy was a nearly perfect adaption. Let's just hope Zelda and Link get as much justice.

invictus4000 commented on Review: Blaster Master (Wii U eShop / NES):

This remains one of my favorite games. It is way solid, especially for an NES-era game. Great gameplay with tight controls, challenging but not impossible, and some of the best 8-bit tunes ever that I would be happy listening to in my car as I drive around town (or an underground labyrinth).

And I mean c'mon how could you not like a game with a storyline like this:
Kid has a pet frog. It escapes into his backyard where there happens to be a frikin' miniature nuclear reactor that mutates the frog into a monster. It then proceeds to jump down a giant pit to endless underground catacombs, which also happens to be in your backyard. You jump down to follow and find an f'n TANK with huge amounts of fire power that can hover, go under water, and jump. Also at the bottom of the pit is a perfectly fitting suit of body armor. You equip it, hop into the tank, and destroy EVERYTHING.
The End.

Transferring now! So excited! The super-stable 3D is awesome. One problem with the instructions though...I went to my fridge to find a refreshing beverage as they recommended...but there was no Coke...I thought NLife somehow was going to come through for me with that.

@Phle
I think it will only be available to Club Nintendo members but I can't be sure. If you're not a member it's free to sign up and you still can for a month more or so.
And it is quite different than Swapnote. That was simply a messenger app that you could doodle with. This is a full-blown animation movie-making tool and is much more complex and rewarding than Swapnote.

As dumb as it is, I can understand eliminating the online sharing after the Swapnote fiasco...but couldn't they at least let us share videos with our registered friends?? I mean, c'mon, what's the point of creating something if you can't share it with anyone else?
