It doesn't feel much like a Pokemon ad to me, just like a typical sports ad with some CG Pokemon thrown in at the end and slightly subtle placement of the immortal line "Like no one ever was" at one point. It just doesn't have the right vibe for Pokemon.

@cormano I think you were looking for Tomadachi Life. Not sure how you ended up here instead but maybe read the article before commenting? I mean, to my knowledge, the game the article talks about has no marriage system nor is such a thing mentioned here.

@russellohh When I mentioned looks, I meant the overall look not the fact it doesn't fold up. If we're talking about things that don't fold up, I'd be more inclined to compare it to the Gameboy Color or original GBA, actually. I haven't seen a single tablet or modern phone that looks that much like a toy aside from the ones that are aimed at small kids.

I will agree, however, that the XL is the most uncomfortable unless the user has big hands like my friend who owns one does (he has the opposite issue, smaller models cause hand cramps due to his large hands). It's stupidly heavy and far too large and cumbersome.

@Kaze_Memaryu I also forgot to say, Namco are so incompetent with fighting games, both games are highly acclaimed by both critics and players alike, with, again, a very loyal and strong following containing a very large amount of people. I really don't see how you can claim incompetence when, time and again, their games achieve high scores and are highly praised. They're clearly doing something right otherwise they'd have the same notoriety as, say, the Sonic franchise and SEGA as a whole of late.

Anyway, I feel this controller looks pretty neat and comfortable, depending on the size, albeit with slightly cheap looking plastic. I also feel it could be a pretty nice collectable since it's a replica of the ones on the arcade machines (something some people here seem to have failed to notice), much like how the Power Glove is now despite it being an awful piece of tech.

kamifox1 commented on Feature: What We Expect From the Super Smash B...:

I'm really hoping to see Klonoa at last, especially since Namco already have a presence this time around. Failing that, I'd like to see Eggman as a playable character, that way Sonic gets a hero and a villain on his second appearance. I also feel Eggman would just be a really interesting character for the devs to play with and he's already shown he's capable in battle since he's almost always a boss character himself. Ok, so he never really wins, but he still presents a decent enough challenge!.

kamifox1 commented on A Version of the Pokkén Tournament Arcade Con...:

@Kaze_Memaryu First off, fighting games are always far better with the D-pad, any avid fighting game player will tell you that.

Secondly, there's a very large Tekken and slightly smaller SoulCalibur following that begs to differ on your constant belief that Namco are in any way incompetent when it comes to fighting games. As I'm pretty sure I already explained to you before, no fighting game can ever be perfectly balanced, that would defeat the whole point and make the game boring while every character would just be a reskin with a different set of animations. The whole point in fighting games is to learn each characters strengths and weaknesses and overcome them in order to win, remove that and you have a mindless button-masher with no gratification or skill involved. Tekken and Soulcalibur, Namcos two primary fighters, pull this off (almost) perfectly, albeit with a few stupidly cheap characters people hate (I'm looking at you, Maxi, Nightmare, Jinpachi and Azazel, to name a few... T_T) but the many outweighs the few.

@Spin Tekken tag Tournament 2 would actually be your best option if you want to play an easier Tekken to get you started. Just, for the love of God, don't touch the Combot Lab mode. The rest of the game, while still having the large movesets to learn, is designed to be more of a pick up and play type of fighter and is still relatively easy to play without learning any movesets.

@GunplaGamer Ah, well, in fairness, you guys only just got the standard New 3DS whereas we've had it since launch yet we still have the issue I already mentioned... What's worse is the launch selection's not very good either, unless you like Mario and/or really plain, dull patterns... Only good one out of the launch ones is the OR/AS one and I don't even see that in stores anymore, I need to replace mine.

kamifox1 commented on Video: This Pokkén Tournament Commercial Shou...:

@khaosklub See, all you're doing is making incorrect assumptions about me as a person. No, I didn't get DOA because it was a 3D fighter. I got it because I played a demo and enjoyed it as a game, I didn't even know what a 3D fighter was aside from Soulblade (which was completely different) back then.

About Kirk, no, he has no right to outright claim someone's sad for wanting to get a spin-off game without playing the rest of the franchise first, that's just a ridiculous way to react. There's a difference between being passionate and outright insulting someone. There's plenty other ways to be passionate without upsetting or insulting an individual.Besides, I highly doubt he'd say that to the persons face and if he did, I highly doubt he'd walk away after. He could've just as easily, as someone else pointed out, simply stated that it wouldn't be the best game to start with and recommended a different one instead or simply accepted the choice the person had made and said nothing to him but no, he instead chose to insult the person for making what he believes to be a poor gaming choice.
His reaction just reminds me of all the Sonic fans that do exactly that to the people who like games like Sonic '06 and Shadow the Hedgehog. It's unnecessarily hurtful.

kamifox1 commented on Video: This Pokkén Tournament Commercial Shou...:

@khaosklub Actually, Dead or Alive was only the second 3D fighter I ever played and I never had any interest in Ninja Gaiden or boobs. I have also played and enjoyed DBZ games even though I can't stand DBZ same for a couple Naruto games and Castelvania: Judgement.

In other words, no, you don't necessarily have to like the overall theme or genre of a game in order to enjoy or want the game, you can just as easily want or enjoy the game purely because it looks/is fun, the one thing all games are intended for.

Along similar lines, I can't stand 2D fighters yet I fully enjoy Blazblue.

Anyway, as for your other point, I honestly fail to see what looks so bad about the gameplay footage we've been shown anyway. It was intended as an arcade-only game originally (or so I believe) so of course it will lack any sort of depth, arcade games exist purely to jump in and out of for a few minutes at a time. It's just plain ignorant to assume an arcade game will have any more depth than that.

So that's physically and/or mentally harming you and harming the sales of the franchise? Besides, that just proves your precious Warioland isn't as popular as Warioware for whatever reason. I highly doubt Pokemon will go down that route.

Oh and lastly, you've failed to realise just why everyone ganged up on Kirk in the first place, he was far too aggressive in his response and came across as an a-hole, honestly. After all, how would you feel if you stated your choice to get a new game that's not out yet only for someone to go "That's pretty sad. It's a sh****y game." to you?

@khaosklub "It also has pokemon characters, which would appeal to pokemon fans, so if it's one's first pokemon game, it's likely that that one is not a pokemon fan"

I still fail to see how that's an issue. A non-fan starting a franchise on a spin-off game harms no one and nothing as long as they don't then assume the entire franchise to be the same in terms of quality whether that be good or bad.

kamifox1 commented on Video: This Pokkén Tournament Commercial Shou...:

@khaosklub Well, I told a slight lie there, I also fully enjoyed Twilight Princess but I still don't class myself as a Zelda fan.

I've played some pretty enjoyable 3D fighters that work like the anime ones, main ones being Dead or Alive (very button-bashy and cinematic) and Bloody Roar (very lacking in balance and depth and also very cinematic). Also Namco's involved and we know their track record with 3D fighters so... Yeah... Can't really fault me for having hope.

kamifox1 commented on Video: This Pokkén Tournament Commercial Shou...:

@Kirk You can see issues from what's probably in-production footage shot purely for promotional purposes?

Also, so? The person has every right to do that, he's not hurting anyone or anything with that mentality, he's well within his rights to do that, if anything, he will be giving Game Freak/The Pokemon Company/Nintendo more money and attention so you should be grateful.

Just because YOU don't want the game doesn't give you any right to have a go at others who DO want it. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out where you went wrong here.

Oh and I find your mentalities of "It's not an RPG like the main series therefore it will be a bad game." and "You can't buy and enjoy a spin-off of a franchise without playing the main part of said franchise first." far more sad and pathetic than anything the rest of us have said, including the person you originally replied to.

kamifox1 commented on Video: This Pokkén Tournament Commercial Shou...:

@Kirk Not sure how you already know it's going to be bad when you have no more info about the game than the one you claim can't tell it's good yet. See the problem here?

Also, I'm not a Zelda fan or a Dynasty Warriors fan yet I got Hyrule Warriors without knowing how good it is and fully enjoyed it. Does that make me an equally bad person?

Pretty much all the Pokemon spin-offs as of yet have been really good, solid entries into the franchise (only exception off the top of my head is Pokemon Rumble U), just not the usual RPGs the franchise started life as so this game COULD be just as good as the other spin-offs or, as you so nicely said, it COULD be a really bad cash-in that's just a Tekken reskin, again, we simply don't know yet.

Personally, I see a person wanting to buy this game despite not being a fan of the main franchise it's based on as a good thing. It proves it's doing the job of bringing new fans in and broadening the franchises horizons.

I, myself, am really looking forward to this game at the moment since I am a Pokemon fan (have been since Red/Blue, first game of my own was Yellow version and I've played at least one game from each gen and spin-off series) and a 3D fighter fan, especially Tekken, so this combines two of my favourite franchises.

I don't have a problem with this. It COULD, in theory, bring more, different fans in and increase the franchises popularity. It COULD also, however, do the complete opposite but hey, that's how all games go nowadays.

kamifox1 commented on GAME Processes Additional Charges on Super Mar...:

This is why I now only buy in-store from GAME and even then, only if I can't find something elsewhere, it has the best preorder bonus or I find it relatively cheap second hand. Otherwise, I either preorder/order from Amazon (who I've never had a problem with) or buy second hand when games become dirt cheap in places like CEX and the little indie shops the city I'm in has. Even the employees themselves recognise just how bad the online service is where I am. My friend mentioned a problem he had with it to an employee and he said "Oh, yeah, the site's awful." to us!

At risk of sounding as racist as this article also makes the west sound, the Japanese are best at ALL games, get over it. If you don't want to go against Japan because they're better than you, you need to either get better or stop playing online, simple.

Wait a minute... There were Mario toys in McDonalds recently? I was in Plymouth city center (I live in Plymouth, Devon, UK) almost every day the last few weeks, I even went in McDonalds a couple times for my lunch and only ever saw Minions toys... I was there just yesterday and today too...

kamifox1 commented on Video: Learn More About the Experimental Rayma...:

This is just plain depressing... As a massive fan of the Rayman franchise, especially 1, 2 and 3, it's really upsetting to see what could've been an incredible sequel to those three platforming classics become a (quite frankly, awful) party game which wound up getting milked for all it was worth instead of being a one-off (or having one sequel, if they must) then going back to the original plan or something similar... At least we got Origins and Legends, I guess, even if Origins is also nothing like the amazing and innovative game we saw at E3 before it went multi-plat and lost its namesake (aside from it borrowing the original visual style) and innovation...

@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...

kamifox1 commented on This Plate & Watch New Nintendo 3DS Cover Plat...:

@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.

kamifox1 commented on This Plate & Watch New Nintendo 3DS Cover Plat...:

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.
