kamifox1 commented on Nintendo Is Planning Its Own Loot Crate-Style ...:

@manu0 Actually, Nintendo's huge here, in the UK. It's just the retailers that think otherwise. I'm always seeing people with Nintendo merch and buying Nintendo games where they're available as well as hearing people talking about Nintendo and I get a lot of UK Streetpass hits for a city that's not overly popular.

@RegalSin You don't need to... That's the beauty of it being a faceplate. It's just there to make it look pretty, nothing more (well and you kinda need the bottom one to protect all the stuff like the battery and Micro SD card but hey).

Also poorly designed in your opinion, a lot of people happen to disagree...

@AVahne Yeah, it would be better if it was thinner. I'm also concerned about it getting wrecked because my Pokemon OR/AS faceplate which I bought the day after I got my New 3DS is literally covered in scratches even though I keep it in a slipcase with a velcro flap when I'm out and about and avoid lying it top down or putting anything on it any other times.

@chardir The console doesn't need to be on, just on standby, for the Gamepad to blink when notifications are recieved though so it could use something similar or just use what the old devices like Game & Watch and most other LCD games used for that stuff when it's powered off.

That is awesome! Watch it go out of stock instantly though. ;_;

Also it's not expensive at all if Google's accurate. It says it's just £15.53 which isn't much more than the normal price for faceplates. Remember, Yen is worth a lot less than the British Pound so when you see quadruple digits, don't just assume that means something's expensive.

@Kiyata_Hamasaki Actually, these "money-making gimmicks" are making them plenty money right now because they're collectables with some of the biggest faces in gaming on them which also happen to add content and replayability to a whole host of games. They're not JUST going out of stock so quickly because they're in low numbers, you know. If they weren't making Nintendo any money, they would still be gathering dust on store shelves instead of circulating sites like eBay and Amazon or sitting on collectors shelves and being used for their intended purpose, all of which involve, at some point, money going to Nintendo.

@Aromaiden Exactly, then there's the whole thing with gaming merchandise which also exists purely to milk money from consumers who see their favourite game characters and logos plastered onto items they could buy under any other name but won't. I'll admit I'm always falling for that tactic myself as I collect Pokemon plushes and Sonic figurines as well as anything else Sonic-related.

I wasn't sure about this when it was first announced but now I'm much more interested. I agree, it should've been DLC or free to play but considering the amount of content it no doubt has, I'm happy to shell out a few pounds.
My only concern is will we, in the UK, ever get the cards since almost every time a game has launched that uses cards in some shape or form, we either never got the cards or they were VERY hard to find (biggest examples being that iOS Tekken card game and Kid Icarus Uprising, I never saw the cards in stores!)?

@Vineleaf Isabelle's kinda the main character in New Leaf so of course she's gonna get a ton of attention... Digby's one of the main NPCs in New Leaf of which all the Amiibos thus far appear to be so of course he would be among them...

Isabelle's also not an annoying character, she spends pretty much all her time behind a desk, performing her duties. She's a bit on the awkward side, sure, but she's basically the same, personality-wise, as most of the female villagers. I honestly fail to see what about her could make her appear to be annoying to anyone, she's just kinda there to do what she has to do.

Good grief, Lottie's horrifying! O_O'

Also guys, calm down, they probably haven't revealed all of them yet! I'm sure Sabel, Labelle, Shrunk, Kapp'n, Gulliver, Resetti, the Nooklings, Shampoodle, Blathers, Celeste, Kyle and Kicks will all be announced in due time!

If so, I definitely want K.K., Kicks, Isabelle, Celeste and Cyrus ones, those are all my favourite NPCs.

kamifox1 commented on New Skylanders SuperChargers Trailer Plays Up ...:

@3dsgeek333 He was never a guest though. No more so than any other playable character in the franchise. He was, in fact, originally supposed to be the lead character and the game was supposed to be a spin-off of the Spyro franchise but things change during development and yada yada yada. Yes, he probably did stay because he was a familiar face that would draw people in but that wasn't the original intention, far from it.

Besides which, how often do you see a guests name as a part of the full title of a game? I know I never do unless it's a little added on bit at the end like "& insert name here" or "Featuring insert name here".

kamifox1 commented on Veterans Of 3DS Title Xeodrifter Will Get The ...:

How can he expect the sales to be as good here when he doesn't advertise it properly for us? How are we meant to know it even exists without proper advertising? Some of us only found out about it through NintendoLife or by looking at the eShop regularly, the rest didn't know it existed, probably, so how could they buy it?

Then, as someone else mentioned, there's the ridiculously long wait we had to endure. The longer we, the consumers, have to wait, the more likely we are to give up entirely or just go online and watch it or hack and emulate/illegally play it therefore less sales as more people go the purchase-free routes. It's not that hard to figure out...

kamifox1 commented on Metroid Prime: Federation Force Is The Metroid...:

Anyway on topic, I thought this looked like a nice bit of fun despite the fact I don't enjoy FPS'. Sure, it's not a 'proper' Metroid game but I don't see the problem. Maybe it's a spin-off? Maybe they only showed a few small portions of the overall game? Maybe it's still nowhere near finished and they're gauging reactions to determine what to change and what to keep before release?

@G_M You appear to be new here so let me be the first to inform you that THAT is not how we treat people here.
There was absolutely no reason to say that to @Volmun (who's first language IS, in fact, English, I know him offline. He suffers from severe dyslexia).
Why does a persons first language matter as long as people are able to understand said person anyway? Besides which, there's a very obvious difference between people who don't speak English as their first language and people who do yet have difficulties with their spelling/grammar, I suggest you learn the difference as well as how to treat others as you would like to be treated.
It also appears you even went so far as to make an account JUST to say that then go on to make a ridiculous remark about the articles topic with literally no elaboration or intelligent points, unlike my friend who you greatly insulted. That's just sad, it's idiots like you who deserve that treatment, not the innocent, relatively intelligent ones who are simply trying to lead as normal a life as they possibly can.

Well, this certainly came out of the blue! Definitely gonna grab this one, I love the WiiU game and I don't normally play Warriors games, last game I played that was even vaguely similar before Hyrule Warriors was Mystic Heroes on the Gamecube but boy was it horrible to progress in that...

kamifox1 commented on Europe, You're Getting Three More New 3DS Cove...:

@BinaryFragger Yes, because pieces of plastic with pretty pictures and one version of a device you could easily have never gotten full-stop is totally worth more than a whole bunch of decent games. That makes sense. Not that my "complaint" was technically even a complaint, it was simply a statement about my lack of understanding.

Also I'm sorry but said sweeping generalisation does happen to be mostly true. You don't see large quantities of people from any other region whining nearly as much as Americans do when they miss out on something as minor as, again, pieces of pretty plastic or one version of a device. Think of it this way, at least you got a New 3DS full-stop, it could've just as easily been like so many consoles that never left Japan at all.

It's not just this either, every time America's missed out on something, there's been large quantities of Americans whining yet when any other region has, there's been a few complaints and that's it, really. Mostly just queries and "meh"s.

Oh and for the record, you Americans get a LOT more gaming merchandise, events and stores than us Brits and Europeans not to mention the fact you almost always get everything before us so sorry if I appear to be a bit bitter and cynical towards Americas childish complaints when it comes to these things.

@ianolivia You can buy them for like £10 here, if that so no, I'm not incredibly stupid and you're replying to someone who clearly wasn't responding to anyone... I'm only responding now because you made such a ridiculous point that only showed your own ignorance.

Watch them disappear in mere seconds! TA-DAH!

Really though, the sense of entitlement in America these days never fails to astound me.. It's just a few pieces of plastic with pretty pictures on them, do you REALLY care that much? Sorry, America, you need to learn you can't have everything and move on with your lives. Most of the faceplates are dull and boring anyway, these three are no exception. I could just as easily have made some stencils, bought some New 3DS shells (or New 3DS XL shells, if I didn't have the normal model) and painted them myself. Probably cheaper too since the faceplates are £15 a piece.

kamifox1 commented on BBC iPlayer Finally Arrives On The Wii U eShop:

Boo hoo, poor deprived Americans not getting a service WE pay for with OUR TV licences. Not like you get hundreds more TV channels than us anyway (sarcasm).
Besides, iPlayer's always had a terrible choice of shows on it anyway. What shows it DOES have often don't have every episode or are only there for certain periods. It often breaks mid-stream too, resulting in long buffering or a complete crash. Trust me, Americans, you're not missing out.

@CharlyDunst No but it means it is a VERY good effort on the one persons part, also, the video is probably of an early build. If it looks professional quality (visually and animation-wise) in an early build, just think what the final product could be like. There's still time for him to fix up the gameplay, voices and level layouts.

@DThrow_UAir How do you know we don't? How do you know we haven't attended courses, been taught other ways or made any games for fun?
Besides, there are a lot of game devs and game dev students here and you don't need to know how to make a game to be able to recognise good or bad game design when you see it anyway, all you need is some form of gaming knowledge and experience.

kamifox1 commented on Combat Core Is What You'd Get If Super Smash B...:

It looks amazing considering it's made entirely by one person. That's what most of you seem to be forgetting (or ignoring) here. It's not made by a massive team, it's ONE GUY and it looks like it was made by a larger team. That makes it amazing in my books.

Sadly, I never played Power Stone due to never having a functioning Dreamcast long enough to get it but I'm a massive fan of 3D fighting games and all derivatives of them so I'd be more than happy to see something like it on the WiiU, Nintendo needs more fighters to draw that scene in.

@James_mussell98 Yeah, I wish it had Pokemon Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver, Crystal, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Fire Red and Leaf Green on it (I still think the GBA Virtual Console being on WiiU but not 3DS is ridiculous, handheld games should at least stay on handheld consoles and vice versa, having both on both is ideal but keeping them to their respective platform types should be the bare minimum).

@RegalSin You seriously believe sawdust, of all things, causes cancer? Hard luck for any construction workers, furniture makers, lumberjacks, gardeners etc. and anyone (such as myself) who happens to own a rabbit, guinea pig, mouse, rat, hamster or other rodent then.. Not to mention anyone who may spend a lot of time sharpening pencils (such as a teacher or office worker)...
I mean really, how many of these people have gotten cancer from sawdust?

kamifox1 commented on Video: Gengar Confirmed as a Fighter in Pokké...:

@Kaze_Memaryu I got it from playing both franchises since they started. All of those complaints clearly came from people who don't know how to play the games properly and you pretty much just said yourself that you've only played Tekken Tag Tournament 2 which is actually built to be easier to pick up and play than all previous iterations of the series.
I haven't met a single person who knows how to play the games properly and has made the complaints you're making. Let me put it this way: If these games are as bad as you say they are, why don't they get much, if any, flak? Why are they always rated among the top fighting games (especially Tekken)? Why are Namco always credited as being among the best at creating 3D fighters? Oh and don't go saying "But none of that is true!" because as well as playing the franchises since they started, I've also followed them and Namco themselves since these franchises started.

kamifox1 commented on Video: Gengar Confirmed as a Fighter in Pokké...:

@Kaze_Memaryu Tekken and SoulCalibur don't even have balancing issues though (ok, SoulCalibur V does). The whole point is each character has their own strengths and weaknesses. You, as the player, have to exploit these. It's that simple, it's also how all 3D fighters that require an ounce of skill work. If all 3D fighters were perfectly balanced, there would be no skill required and they would all be boring spam-fests.

Therefore, NamcoBandai are not incompetent when it comes to 3D fighters. They understand exactly how to make the games just challenging enough to require skill but not so challenging they become impossible (aside from some of Tekkens boss fights and some of SoulCaliburs campaign missions).

kamifox1 commented on Video: Gengar Confirmed as a Fighter in Pokké...:

@Kaze_Memaryu So you're saying Tekken and SoulCalibur, two of the best and most popular 3D fighting game franchises, are bad? In this video, it actually doesn't look like there's that much free-roaming. It looks more like Tekken and SoulCaliburs style of movement, a full 8 directions in a 3D arena but only moving in directions other than forward and backwards while dodging which a D-pad is best for.

Oh and FYI: NamcoBandai helped develop Smash for WiiU and 3DS as well as developing a whole host of anime-based fighting games so by saying they're incompetent with fighting games, you're also saying all of these games are bad on top of Tekken and SoulCalibur.

I really hope this will see a WiiU release with Tekken 6 style campaign mode and, possibly, Tekken style customisation!

Also, if not already announced, Sneasel or at least Weavile please! That's my favourite evolution line and it could easily play like the usual token ninja characters!
