iphys commented on Nintendo Has "Moved On" From Game Boy Games on...:

If they'd included even the most basic colour palette options like on the GBC these games might have been more popular. I know I was specifically boycotting buying the games because of it. The GB library was huge and they've surely missed a lot of good games.



iphys commented on The Next Splatfest in North America is About H...:

Planes because they can take you to more exotic places and you don't have to worry about getting run over by a drunk. Plus, the one time I went against Marie the Decepticons trashed Autobots, so clearly I should stick with Marie and her love for planes.



iphys commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer...:

SMB2, Super Mario Land, and Super Mario World are my favourites, but I went with Super Mario Land because it's so short and sweet with such great music, and as one of the first GB games it was so mind blowing to be able to take it with you and play it anywhere.



iphys commented on Some Western Splatoon Players Would Prefer Not...:

I've definitely noticed the difference when I'm in a room hosted by a Japanese player that it seems like the Japanese players just kill me before I even have a chance to exchange kills. The only thing that makes sense is that they must have like a third of a second advantage due to lag, because usually it's pretty much a given that my Kraken roller is going to kill anyone within range or at least exchange kills, but I'll go to jump splat and be dead before I can even unleash it to have a chance to exchange kills.



iphys commented on Feature: Handheld LCD Gaming Past And Present:

I had so many of these as a kid: the basic race car and soccer ones and fancier ones like Double Dragon and Marble Madness. Got rid of them the day I got my Game Boy, but some of them were pretty fun.



iphys commented on Nintendo Download: 27th August (North America):

Sin & Punishment is 1200 points on the Wii, so I wouldn't call $11.99 upping the price. Nothing cheeky about asking a little more for import titles they know we shouldn't have already paid for and played extensively like a lot of games people just rebuy on VC.



iphys commented on It's Autobots vs Decepticons in the Upcoming T...:

I always collected the autobots as a kid, and I wear an autobot sticker on the back of my hockey helmet, so I guess I'm going to have to side with Callie for the first time ever. I feel like Decepticons will win though, not that they should, since Decepticons are always the cowards that retreat when confronted by the Autobots.



iphys commented on Short Bursts Of Tetris Can Help To Control Cer...:

I wound up 20 pounds underweight once because I just kept playing Tetris no matter how hungry I was. Pretty much I wouldn't stop playing till I started getting shaky and felt like I was going to pass out.



iphys commented on Chris Prangar, Nintendo Treehouse Staffer Who ...:

I know I could be fired from my job if I talked to the media about it without permission from public relations, and I don't even work anywhere at all secretive like the Treehouse. It may seem harsh, but he never should have taken the gamble if he cared about his job so much.



iphys commented on Talking Point: Wii U Gamers Have Been Treated ...:

I've been satisfied between the Nintendo games and Indie eShop offerings. Let's face it: most 3rd party games aren't usually worth paying full-retail for and end up being $20 bargain-bin games after a few months, and I'd rather just play the Indie eShop games, which are usually a little more unique than the stuff 3rd parties do that are just tried-and-true types of games.



iphys commented on Players Reached Splatoon's Level Cap So Fast T...:

@ultraraichu Some people naturally stay up very late or wake up very early, a lot of people have insomnia and wake up for a couple hours in the middle of the night before going back to sleep, or a lot of people are forced to work strange hours and adjust their sleep schedule accordingly.



iphys commented on Latest Splatoon Splatfest Results Are In, Eati...:

Water Slides. Went 28 and 24 and won a 3v4, so I'll always remember that fondly, but I definitely did feel like I had more weaker teammates than on team Dog, so I'm not surprised the overall winning percentage was so low.



iphys commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Releases Statement on the Pas...:

Wow, even Miyamoto didn't see it coming. At first I kind of wondered why Nintendo wouldn't have transitioned him out like Steve Jobs when he was dying, and I felt almost lied to that they didn't give us any sign this was coming after being so forthright about his initial medical problems, but I guess really no one knew.



iphys commented on Splatfest Details Are Confirmed for 18th July ...:

I like the colour and look of waterslides better, so probably that, although I do rock the roller so maybe I should go roller(coasters). In Europe it would be a much easier decision for me to take sleeping over eating, but I fear that team might sleep in and miss Splatfest, lol.



iphys commented on Splatoon Version 1.3.0 Update Due on 30th June...:

I hope if you've actually invested a lot of time playing for the losing team in Splatfest it's more sea snails rather than less that they're going to be giving than they were before. Everyone seems more concerned with picking the team they think will win rather the team they want to actually represent.



iphys commented on Nintendo Gets Tough With Miiverse Bans, and So...:

It seems fair enough to me, since it's too easy to get around Miiverse bannings right now, and it makes people accountable to their family members if they go and get the whole family banned. If you don't want to get in trouble for people you share your Wii U with, then get your own Wii U. With the trolls silenced, maybe it will be easier for the moderators to do their jobs properly, so there won't be as many wrongful bannings.



iphys commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Hints at Smaller New Nintendo...:

Special SKUs? Weren't the standard model just supposed to be basic white or black, or would they really release special edition standard models? That sounds so strange. Whatever, I'd take it no matter what junky faceplates it came equipped with.



iphys commented on Tablets Stole The Wii U's Thunder, Laments Shi...:

What thunder? They barely even marketed the thing and made so many other mistakes like the name and the stupid Basic model that they overproduced. This thing had fail written all over it the moment it was announced 4 years ago to the point I felt physically ill just watching their 2011 E3 conference.



iphys commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

It was so disappointing I wound up playing Pokemon Shuffle for most of it, waiting for the interesting games to get announced, which never happened. The only good games presented were ones we already knew about last year. Was really hoping this might be the year for a new Punch-Out!! too, sigh.



iphys commented on Talking Point: Super Mario Maker Stole the Sho...:

It was amazing to watch really good players play those crazy levels, but I feel like I would never have an amazing experience like that with the game myself, so it didn't make me want to buy the game ultimately.
