I love everything Nintendo, but also enjoy gaming on other consoles. My first game was Mega Man 3, and my all time favorite is MH4U. Also a HUGE fan of DKC and Fire Emblem. I own a Wii U, PS4, X1, 3DS and Vita. And of course, a Gamecube and Wii.

JaxonH commented on Review: Xenoblade Chronicles X (Wii U):

20 hours to get a Skell in a 100 hour game seems wise to me.

You wanna spread the excitement over the course of play, rather than make the game top-heavy with nothing exciting for the next 100 hours. At my rate of thorough exploration- 25 hours to skell, another 25 hours to fly, another 25 to reach end game stretch, and a final 25 to the end of the story.



JaxonH commented on We Could See New Nintendo Stuff At The Game Aw...:

"Not exactly how you get the hardcore gamer to come back"

First of all, are you saying Nintendo gamers aren't "hardcore"? I game more than most people I know, and DKC time trial runs routinely makes people who THINK the are good at games to realize just how much they actually suck.

Point is, we are all hardcore gamers. And DKC is just the type of games Nintendo makes. No point pretending they're something they're not. This is Nintendo- don't like it, don't play it. But they shouldn't hide all their classic games and put up a front- a LIE, to appeal to other gamers.

DKC is the most hardcore game I've played in a long time. And it's nothing to be ashamed of. It's one of the best games on Wii U and they SHOULD tout it. Not everyone just wants guns and open worlds, and if they do, there's no point pretending Nintendo is the place for that anyways.

Always be who you are. And Nintendo should do the same. This is us. These are the games we make. Don't like it, move along. But for those who DO appreciate a broader range of games than the ann annual trifecta of FPS, here's what we have to offer.

Just tired of people acting like they're "ashamed" of DKC likes it's a lesser game. Like I said, that's just the kind of games they make- no point pretending otherwise

EDIT: Also said of note is that the only ones who actually complained about DKC that year were Nintendo fans. Specifically, Nintendo fans who seem to be ashamed of Nintendo games. As if they just "wanna show everyone else they play cool games too". The actual non Nintendo gamers weren't ridiculing it. I find that very interesting. I had a friend who bought a Wii U for DKC. All the Nintendo fans are like "quick, hide the Nintendo games and show something with guns blazing" Meanwhile the non-Nintedo gamers are saying "that looks pretty cool- I used to love DKC back on SNES". How ironic



JaxonH commented on Review: Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon (3DS):

From what I've heard this game is WAY better than Gate to Infinity, many players comparing it to the Explorers entry.

I read quite a few user reviews and most all of them said the same thing- aside from the slog fest of a tutorial, the game is among the best in the series.

Now, I can't say for sure because I haven't played both to compare, but they seemed pretty convincing. I ordered the game once I heard that too. Thought it would be a good entry to jump in with.



JaxonH commented on Feature: The Twilight Princess HD Fan Project ...:

Looks good. Unfortunately it's on PC, where it does me no good. The official remake will be on Wii U where I can play it, so my focus is with that.

As for the whole "not looking good enough" thing, I just... don't....really care all that much. Looks good enough for me to enjoy it, so I'm good. Of course I'll be interested to see it on my actual TV screen rather than in a video.



JaxonH commented on Review: The Legend of Legacy (3DS):

Ask SpoonyTech- he can vouch for how amazing Stella Glow is. But I hold Awakening very high indeed- I think it's the 3rd best FE game (only behind the GC and Wii entries) and tbh, I really don't like any other SRPG's in comparison. Always thought Tactics was good, but not great, whether it be War of the Lions or A2 on DS. I did like Jeanne d'Arc though. That was at least as good as the GBA Fire Emblems.

But ya, I love Awakening so when I say I think this gives it a run for its money, that's really saying something. In truth, it's not as hard and there's no permadeath, and not quite as technical. Yet somehow I'm enjoying Stella Glow almost just as much.

They really borrowed the Awakening formula- and it shows. A flash of the future endgame starts you off on a dramatic note (like FE:A). Support conversations and dating sim like elements (like FE:A), you've got your serious damage tank, your merchant, etc, the visual style is also very similar.

And strangely, both Stella Glow and Awakening were potentially the last one- only Stella Glow really did turn out to be their last. The similarities are incredible.

But enough babbling- you're gonna love the game. It starts off very cliche (oddly) but it gets so good once you start chapter one. And the game continues to open up. I'm 11 hours in, and JUST gained the ability to use the overhead map, conductor ability and a few other things. Let me know how you like it once you play for a while in the Stella Glow forum topic!



JaxonH commented on Video: This Is What An All-3D Version Of Chron...:

Chrono Trigger DS is on sale at Square Enix Online Store for...

Wait for it...

Just $6.

Thing is, the $8 shipping means you'd need to order a few items to make it worthwhile. Fortunately they have around 100 games for extremely appealing prices. Kingdoms Hearts Dream Drop Distance for $12. The KH games on DS for around same price. FF 13-1 and 13-2 and 13-3 for $6/ea. SO many good deals on PS4/X1 games too.

I recommend people check it out. Just go to their online store and browse the sale tab.



JaxonH commented on Review: The Legend of Legacy (3DS):

I was telling people this was a decent little game- not excellent but good enough.

People just wrote it off without even giving it a second thought.

But the REAL star of the show is Stella Glow. The game that gives Fire Emblem Awakening a thorough run for its money.



JaxonH commented on Chief NES Designer Describes Nintendo as an In...:

I think some are misinterpreting what he said.

He's not saying "Ya, we're really just an indie".

What he's saying is, their creative approach is similar to that of an independent developer. In that one respect. And he's not wrong.



JaxonH commented on Editorial: It's Not Fun to Criticise Nintendo ...:

Call it what it is.

Amiibo Festival was utter garbage and deserved a really low score.

Mario Tennis was short on content. I'd have given it a 6.5/10 and noted it's a solid game, just not a full one.

Triforce Heroes I thought was a 7.5, much better than people give it credit for. The single player sucks, but the multiplayer is brilliant.

Chibi Robo- another 7.5 and not nearly as terrible as people claimed. Not great, not amazing, but really enjoyable, solid release.

Devil's Third, well, we all know what's coming.

But give credit where it's due. Fatal Frame was great, Yoshi's Wooly World, Mario Maker, Stella Glow, Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon... All fantastic.

So ya, gotta call it how you see it. Don't give a game a lower score than it deserves just because it's not great and you want to make an example of it, likewise don't give a game a higher score than it deserves just to prove you aren't biased. Call it how you see it.



JaxonH commented on Rumour: A Class in Bravely Second is Supposedl...:

"Remove the bad press and endless controversies in your countries, and the games will release as they are in free countries."

What for? Let it get bad press. The only people who would actually care are the idgits getting offended over it anyways.

I say never bend to the will of political correctness out of fear of backlash. There's always someone getting offended somewhere. Screw it- let em be offended.



JaxonH commented on Feature: Our Top Wii U Games - Third Anniversa...:

Lol no explanations needed. Just trust the enthusiasm- it never lies!

Seriously though, you just peeled off the trifecta of ultimate gaming. Every one of those games is (or is sure to be) beyond the magnitude of epic. I'm not really an online kinda guy, and when I do play I prefer co-op, but let me tell you Splatoon is an online shooter for gamers who don't like online shooters. Almost everyone here will tell you the same thing, "I don't really like online shooters but I LOVE Splatoon!".

As for FAST Racing Neo, well, we live in the post F-Zero GX era. This is as good as it gets, and it's sure to be a real gem.

As for Xenoblade X, well, that game is for us. It's for the serious Nintendo gamers. Mario is for everyone. But this is for people like you and me. The ones who love games enough to frequent fan sites. Xenoblade X is the pinnacle of Nintendo's output on Wii U. It's not one to be missed.



JaxonH commented on Feature: Our Top Wii U Games - Third Anniversa...:


Pikmin 3 is truly magical. It's almost unreal a game like it could exist, and yet it does, with very little recognition from all but the most hardcore, underground Nintendo gamers.

I feel the same way about DKC Tropical Freeze- a game so perfect that I dare say I may not play a better platformer the rest of my life. Yet again, very little recognition from all but the most battle-hardened platforming gamers.



JaxonH commented on Review: Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash (Wii U):

I'll be honest- I've played other rushed games like Call of Duty BO 2 Declassified and Resistance: Burning Skies on Vita, and those received equivalent scores. And they were downright atrocious. I believe in docking games when warranted, but at least this game is solid- well, what's there anyways.

I'd give it a 6.5 at least, with a notation that there's a difference between a 6.5 that's a horrible game and a 6.5 that's a solid game lacking content.

Don't take it so personal. It's pretty clear the Wii U has almost zero third party support and they needed a game out fast. It doesn't excuse it being light on content, but it has nothing to do with "treating fans right". Just a scramble to get a game to market by Christmas.



JaxonH commented on Guide: The Best 2015 Black Friday Nintendo Dea...:

That $250 Smash Splat Wii U bundle at Target is a steal, because with their REDcard 5% discount that takes it down to $237.49.

$237.49 for Wii U Deluxe, Smash Bros and Splatoon. That's about as good as it gets.

JaxonH commented on EA CFO Explains Why the Company Doesn't Make W...:


What pessimism? I'm the biggest optimist here. But not to the point of delusion. All sales figures I listed were in response to Xenocity's lies and numbers pulled out of thin air. And can be verified with a simple google search (iPad and laptop are broke ATM and it's a pain linking while using a phone).

I'm not pessimistic, but I'm not blind either. I can see that 3rd party games don't sell well to the Nintendo audience. Most people can. I mean, the sales are what they are. Doesn't mean I'm cynical or pessimistic, it just means I don't deny the facts. I love Nintendo, but I see no reason to pretend 3rd party games sell well on the system. I am not ashamed by 3rd party game sales- why would I be? I bought all the multiplats on Wii U so I did my part. But the reality is what it is.

EDIT: I don't believe they required PS+ for other MMO games such as Final Fantasy 14 or Elder Scrolls, so I don't see what that policy would change now. But if they do require it, I would be cautious making predictions without first knowing the percentage of subscribers in Japan.



JaxonH commented on EA CFO Explains Why the Company Doesn't Make W...:

And just for good measure, allow me to deconstruct the rest of your listed fallacies, for the record.

"Just Dance Wii U has sold more than other versions combined"

I looked up the sales. It has not sold more than other versions combined. Simple as that. It may have sold more, but not "than others combined".

"ZombiU has sold more than other versions combined"

Really? Where exactly are you getting those sales numbers from? Please link it. And even if that were true, ZombiU has been a Wii U exclusive for 3 years (and STILL never broke a million sold). Comparing that to 3 year old digital ports with the gamepad functionality stripped out? Ya, really something to brag about.


Seriously bringing up Scribblenauts? I don't know if it sold more, I don't think anyone particularly cares either.

"Lego games sell more on Wii U"

No they don't. Wii U is consistently one of the worst selling versions, usually ranking 5th or 6th behind just about every other console version there is.

"Shovel Knight sold more than all others combined"

Uh, again. Where are you getting these numbers? Do tell.

"Sonic sells better..."

Unbelievable. You talking about Lost World or Sonic Boom? Neither of which sold more than 350k. Compared to the usual MILLIONS on other platforms. Oh btw, the 2 highest selling multiplat form Sonic games, they're on PS. Just so you know.

"Indies sell more on Wii U"

Now that's just ridiculous. No they don't. In fact developers often complain because the sales are so atrocious. Aside from a few anomalies like Shovel Knight, you'd be hard pressed to find even ONE indie that sold better on Wii U.

"Dragon Quest X sold better than PS4 and PC combined"

Is Dragon Quest X even out on PS4 in Japan? I couldn't find ANYTHING in a Google search. Except a July announcement it was coming. It's almost as if the game doesn't exist yet, which would be strange indeed considering you're touting it sold more than that version. And for the record, the Wii U version only sold 370k. Which is exactly what I'm talking about. 3rd party games consistently struggle to even hit 500k on Wii U.

You've been lied to by whoever told you all this nonsense.



JaxonH commented on EA CFO Explains Why the Company Doesn't Make W...:

@Xenocity I don't know what fantasy world you're living in but it's not reality.

"Rayman Legends gas outsold all other versions combined".
That's a lie. Rayman Legends PS3 ALONE has outsold the Wii U version.

"Sonic Racing Transformed Wii U has outsold all other versions combined".
That's also a lie. Sonic Racing Transformed PS3 ALONE has outsold the Wii U version

Just that right there is enough to tell me your entire wall of text is full of lies and assumptions.

Another example- MH3U is tracked at 640k. That's "WAY more" than 500k? No, it's not.

And using spin to make it sound like Bayonetta 2 sold better than it did? Come on. It doesn't matter what price something sells at. Otherwise you have to factor that in for ALL games, not just when it suits your argument. MH3U also sold most it's copies at $20 but I don't see you mentioning that.

Go back, check your innacurate facts and post again when you have something real to sustain your argument.



JaxonH commented on EA CFO Explains Why the Company Doesn't Make W...:

"They could have said that the console was outdated, last gen or anything like that. And Splatoon (along with others) proves that games can sell there."

Has nothing to do with being outdated though, as we clearly see from their initial support. What matters is really same thing that always matters- are they making money off it. And with their ports averaging just 100k sales each, they were not making money. They were losing money.

Splatoon (and others) doesn't prove games can sell there- it proves NINTENDO games can sell there. But you'd be hard pressed to find even one multiplat that broke 500k on Wii U. In fact, most ranged from 10k-250k. Which is rather insulting. Even 3rd party exclusives struggle to sell. MH3U and Bayonetta 2, two of the greatest games on Wii U, and both of them are hovering at roughly 600k.

The message sent is clear- 3rd party games- of ANY kind, don't sell well enough in the Nintendo market. There are some exceptions with the handheld audience, but only because sales standards are lower. Atlus in particular



JaxonH commented on Feature: A Glimpse Behind the Scenes of FAST R...:

You know, I really love Tomb Raider. So I've been binging on Rise of the Tomb Raider since it launched, when time allows of course.

Then a little game called Stella Glow released. I wasn't expecting anything incredible- a good game for sure, but nothing more than what Legend of Legacy turned out to be.

Oh man was I wrong. 3DS game of the year. Best SRPG since Jeanne d' Arc on PSP (well, aside from Fire Emblem of course). I slowly phased out Tomb Raider and now I haven't touched it in days.

Amazing how a little 3DS game can suck you in more than what is arguably the best AAA action adventure game I've played in years.



JaxonH commented on Feature: A Glimpse Behind the Scenes of FAST R...:

I think it looks great compared to any Wii U game, not just Star Fox. Of course I think Star Fox looks just fine. Nothing to gripe about anyways, and it's looking better with every snippet we see.

But anyways ya, FAST looks great. I need this game NOW.



JaxonH commented on Review: Stella Glow (3DS):

Wow! I'm hooked! I'm so hooked!

This is one of the best SRPG's I've ever played- aside from Fire Emblem it IS the best.

Talk about coming out of nowhere. I was NOF expecting Stella Glow to be this good. But now that I've played it, even Rise of the Tomb Raider went from number one game to backlog.



JaxonH commented on Site News: A Brief Update on Our Mario Tennis:...:


"Not to say games like Fatal Frame are bad- I actually love it- it just didn't sweep the floor with those classic Nintendo 9's"

That's what I just posted. So I just said I think it's a good game.

I NEVER judge by reviews. I judge by my own opinions. Always. But this is not "judging". This is an observation. It is a fact the game scored mediocre reviews. Observable fact. It is also a fact they made almost zero push to sell the game- another observable fact.

And yes, it has everything to do with how well the game is going to be received. Has nothing to do with sales. Mario Tennis has sales potential- HUGE sales potential. Like @rjejr said- it's got Mario, it's releasing during the holidays- everything is aligned for blockbuster success. So why are they shunning the game? Because of what I just explained- they know it's not a top-tier release so they don't push it. Regardless of sales potential.

JaxonH commented on Site News: A Brief Update on Our Mario Tennis:...:

I've observed that Nintendo refuses to advertise any game that's less than stellar. It's almost as if they feel guilty selling the public bad product.

Notice that with Devil's Third, Fatal Frame, Amiibo Festival and Mario Tennis, no ads or push of any kind. But Splatoon, Xenoblade X, Fire Emblem Fates... Lots of push.

Not to say games like Fatal Frame are bad- I actually love it- it just didn't sweep the floor with those classic Nintendo 9's



JaxonH commented on You Can't Alter The Chest Size Of Female Chara...:

That's honestly a fair point. Probably the best opposing argument I've heard yet.

I'll admit- it is their RIGHT, technically speaking, but as you said, just because someone has the right to do something, that doesn't make it the right thing to do.

If it was some obscene content that went where no other western game had gone before, I might be persuaded to agree. But we're talking about content that is rather common within the genre. It wasn't over the line for all these other games, so why arbitrarily pronounce it over the line now?

Again, yes they are within their rights, but I (we) believe it is not the right thing to do. And want them to hear our voice- to understand that we believe it's the wrong decision, regardless of whether or not they are within their rights.



JaxonH commented on You Can't Alter The Chest Size Of Female Chara...:

I understand people don't like hearing constant nagging or pretty complaints, but this is something that really does matter, whether it seems like it or not.

I understand games will never be completely untouched when it comes to localization changes, but there is such a thing as being too heavy handed. Which has certainly been the case of late.

Nobody wants their beloved games tampered with, and while this may be small potatoes in this instance, we may not be so lucky next time.



JaxonH commented on Timing Of NX Launch Could Help Nintendo Grab S...:


Everyone is different and has different preferences, which was supposed to be the whole strength of the concept. They should have included all 3 with every bundle, and that way everyone would have immediate access to their preference. And there would have been no paywall standing between a person and a controller they better prefer.



JaxonH commented on Timing Of NX Launch Could Help Nintendo Grab S...:

"also feel as though the multiple controller options with Wii/Wii U created even more of a divide/disconnect with gamers, both casual and core"

Whether intentional or not, I can't deny that does seem to be the case. An unfortunate outcome for what I have always felt to be the right solution.

If I have to give up superior (albeit niche) control schemes in the interest of a unifying appeal, so be it. I manage just fine on other consoles which have one controller option. But I would accept it reluctantly, knowing how much those alternative control schemes have improved my enjoyment of so many games.



JaxonH commented on Timing Of NX Launch Could Help Nintendo Grab S...:

"Nintendo fans like myself in their mid 30s just want the next SNES; all the best 1st and 3rd party support, powerful hardware and a straight laced controller."

Yes and no. I fall into that age group, and I'm definitely for great 3rd party support and powerful hardware. And I absolutely value a normal controller- as long as it's provided as an option (like Pro Controller).

But, I actually really like the gamepad. Games like Splatoon, Mario Maker and the upcoming Xenoblade X just wouldn't be the same without it. So I think they have the right solution offering a standard controller that's compatible with most games. Seems a fair compromise.

In fact the "multiple controller options" is one of the key characteristics I value most. Because no 2 games are alike, and certain games work with certain control schemes. For example, I can't stand Pikmin without a Wiimote. It's nearly unplayable. It's one of the only games that play better with motion, but even for the sake of that one franchise, I'm thankful for the Wiimote support.

I'm not a nazi when it comes to power, but my general stance is the more the better. And certainly better for 3rd party support more than my own preference (at this point most Nintendo games are plateauing with their visual potential anyways).

And while I still prefer all my multiplats on whichever console runs them best (right now that's PS4) I'm not opposed to buying them on NX if it can outperform the competition. If not though, I'm perfectly content continuing to play them on PS.



JaxonH commented on Timing Of NX Launch Could Help Nintendo Grab S...:

It'll be very unlikely NX succeeds without 3rd party support. I'll enjoy the console regardless. I miss nothing. I own all and play all, so to me I really couldn't care less which platform a game lands on. Nomatter which one it is, it's a platform I'll own.

But speaking to odds of success, I think they absolutely must have 3rds on board. Judging by home consoles, I think they have zero chance after Wii and Wii U, but at the same time they have decent- not strong but decent- support on their handhelds. So if it's a hybrid, that support will bleed over to benefit the NX ecosystem at large.

I think the odds are not in their favor, but I do think their moderate 3rd party handheld support can bleed over and set precedent for other AAA developers to follow. They're not jumping in until they see tangible evidence that 3rd party games can succeed. So if Atlus, Namco, and even companies like Capcom with Monster Hunter can scrap together some decent sales, I think there's a good chance AAA devs will take notice.

It's 50/50. Either way, success or failure, I'm going to enjoy the games to the uttermost. As I do with all my consoles.



JaxonH commented on Parent Trap: Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival ...:

Nintendo's been announcing/releasing a bunch spin-off games recently because it's apparently not making actual, proper, new games in these franchises, or at least that's how it seems—if it is making them, they're not coming anytime soon—and THAT's the problem I have."

I'm pretty sure they've transitioned development to NX. If you look at things through that lens it starts making more sense. Supporting 2 platforms is a full time task, but to do so while also developing for the next generation is near impossible (for any developer I think). I don't mind so much knowing that's the gotta be the reason.



JaxonH commented on Parent Trap: Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival ...:

"There is plenty 3rd party support, just not AAA and M-rated games"

Eh, I gotta disagree there bud. There's squat for 3rd party support on Wii U. I think once you take a look at what's out there you'll get a better sense of what I mean. Like 10-15 retail games a month releasing on competitors platforms.

In the last month or so I've bought

Rise of the Tomb Raider
Gears Ultimate
Dragon Quest Heroes
Darksiders 2 Deathinitive
Fallout 4
Transformers Devastation
Divinity Original Sin
MGSV Phantom Pain
Tales of Zesteria
Call of Duty Black Ops 3
Dishonored Remastered
Back to the Future The Game
Assassin's Creed Syndicate

Wii U does get some decent indie support, and games like FAST Racing Neo put some retail games to shame, but that's a rare exception rather than the rule. As a multi-console owner, it's easy for me to compare and contrast. Don't get me wrong, I very much enjoy my Wii U, despite the lack of 3rd party (doesn't matter to me- I only buy multiplats on PS4, my Wii U and X1 are for exclusives and backward compatible titles only). But I think if you just take a look at any preorder section online for Wii U you'll see what people are talking about.

Like I said, I don't much care one way or the other. I only really play exclusives anyways on Wii U (as much as I enjoy gamepad, PS4 is my preferred 3rd party console). But I do think it's a bit of a lost cause to argue Wii U still has 3rd party support. They were doing great for a while, no doubt, but the complete lack of 3rd party releases these past 2 years have really taken their toll.

EDIT*** I would also point out that the reason Wii U lost all 3rd party support is because people refused to buy the games. So anyone complaining about a lack thereof who didn't vote with their wallets when they had the chance is being hypocritical. I bought every single multiplat that came to the system, to show my support in the hopes of more coming. But you can't expect 3rd parties to port great games when they can't sell more than 10-100k copies. I wish more people would have supported 3rd parties when they had the chance.



JaxonH commented on Parent Trap: Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival ...:

That's a poor excuse to rip on anyone who likes something you dont (I feel like I'm missing something here maybe? Your labeling everyone was done prior to anyone blindly defending anything)

Im buying an NX day one. No matter what. Just like I bought PS4, 3DS, Wii U, Wii, PS3 and Vita day one. I love video games and I already know beforehand I want to play whatever games are made. I don't care why the system is. I don't care. Because I'm a fan of the games and that's all that matters. Is that actual zealotry? Hold that thought...

"People are entitled to defend their chosen profit-driven multinational corporation* with dead-eyed, unthinking zeal. I'm entitled to criticise that."

I don't see anyone here defending any corporations. Just some moms and dads talking about playing games with their children, and the occasional member who just likes party games. Surely your insatiatable thirst for blood hasn't become so great as to blind you from distinguishing the two apart?

*** EDIT
Just to be clear- some things do deserve criticizing. Others do actually deserve defending. Yes there will be people who defend everything no matter what. Just like there will be people who attack and complain about everything nomatter what. Both categories are just as much zealots as the other. But where's the rational approach? Where's the "I don't like this game but will respect those who do" approach? And the "I do like this game but will respect those who don't" approach? I really wish this community could get back to that.
