KryptoKrunch commented on Talking Point: Mario Kart 8 DLC is a Winning F...:

Yeah, I'd love to see more DLC packs. As for characters, Birdo, Diddy Kong, Bowser Jr., Dry Bones, Zelda and Captain Falcon and would my top choices.

In terms of tracks, the formula of mixing brand new and old is perfect. I'm not much of a battle mode person but they should probably just make it like the classic style. Either way, MK8 is personally my favorite racing game ever and it just got better with the latest DLC.



KryptoKrunch commented on Poll: Would You Like Mario Kart 8 and Super Sm...:

I'd love to see MK8 and Smash get supported until the Wii U's predecessor comes out. Mario Kart 8's DLC is brilliant; get a ton of new content divided between two packs for only $12. I definitely want to see pack 3 and 4 for MK8.

As for Smash, I still like the DLC plan for it, but they should follow more of MK8's DLC and do something like Lucas and another character or two, a few Mii costumes and a stage for X amount.

Still, both games have cool DLC and I'd be happy to see more DLC from both games.



KryptoKrunch commented on Marvel at the Launch Trailer, Live Music and T...:

This looks amazing. I wasn't really expecting Ribbon Road and Cheese Land being re-done, but I'm glad they did. It's always nice to see the flat tracks from the SNES and GBA entries being completely re-done in stunning HD and being brought to life.



KryptoKrunch commented on Project X Zone 2 Crosses Over to the West For ...:

PXZ was a great game. Excellent fan service and a fun SRPG with a unique fighting game-esque combat system. The one thing I felt PXZ was missing however, was a shop where you can buy healing items, XP items and stat boosters etc.



KryptoKrunch commented on Poll: Vote For Your Ten Must-Play Games On Nin...:

Really tough to narrow it down to 10 since the 3DS has so many awesome games but I went with:

3D Land
Smash Bros.
AC: New Leaf
LoZ: OoT 3D
Kid Icarus: Uprising
Pokemon Y

I almost voted for: M&L Dream Team, Luigi's Mansion DM, Kirby Triple Deluxe, Ghost Recon Shadow Wars and Majora's Mask 3D.



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

I'd love the idea. Imagine the 3DS and Wii U libraries combined that just sounds awesome. Plus, it's just easier for Nintendo to develop all their games on one platform.

I'd imagine most people would be happy with a unified platform. I see too many comments here on NL and other sites complaining that a certain game is exclusive to 3DS or Wii U and not on both.

Nintendo announces 3DS exclusive: "Ah man I'd rather have this on Wii U!!"
Nintendo announces Wii U exclusive: "Ah man I'd rather have this on 3DS!!"

Those kinda comments annoy me sometimes. So yeah, unified platform would be cool.



KryptoKrunch commented on Nintendo Set To License All IP to Mobile Publi...:

lawl I love how some folks are freaking out. Nintendo will still be making hardware and still be making their awesome games on said hardware. They'll just be making smaller, budget titles on iOS such as Pokemon Shuffle and such.

Give the doom and gloom card a rest for once. We don't even know everything about this yet either.



KryptoKrunch commented on Elliot Quest Has Fresh Release Dates for Both ...:

Five dungeons and 16 bosses sounds like the game will be pretty solid length.

But yeah, I've been really excited for this since it was confirmed for Wii U. 13 bucks isn't too bad considering 5 dungeons/over 16 bosses and gameplay looks fun.



KryptoKrunch commented on Soapbox: Portable Gaming Forges a Special Rela...:

Great write-up Tom. I've owned every Nintendo handheld since the Gameboy Color and haven't looked back since. Nintendo's handhelds will always be king of portable gaming and there have been some handheld Nintendo titles that just as good if not better than console counterparts and console games in general.



KryptoKrunch commented on Club Nintendo Goes Rewards Crazy With Final Up...:

Holy cow, I knew CN would have tons of cool rewards in Feb. and I'm not disappointed. So much cool stuff!

Just to clear up confusion, you can still redeem coins from older games that came out before Jan. 20. That includes retail and digital titles.



KryptoKrunch commented on Impressions: Nintendo Made The Right Call With...:

Haven't played the demo yet but I'm 99% sure I'll love the game. I'm glad it's getting so much positive reception. I just find it funny that the same folks who demand new IPs like this from Nintendo all the time are so quick to shoot it down.

Whatever, I'm sure S.T.E.A.M. will be good enough to spawn a new series itself. :)



KryptoKrunch commented on Not Everyone is Thrilled That Metroid Prime Tr...:

Great move by Nintendo by not only putting the MPT on the eShop, but putting on the eShop for only $10 during the first week. Can't say I feel sorry for people who sell games for astronomical prices. I understand wanting to gain some profit but some MPT prices I've seen are insane.

I'll be downloading it day 1 on eShop. Probably the best deal in gaming since The Orange Box.



KryptoKrunch commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Flirtation With Micr...:

Just like DLC, there's a good approach to microtransactions and then there's the bad. Looking at Steel Diver and Rusty's RD Baseball, it seems like Nintendo knows what they're doing when it comes to microtransactions. Just like they've handled DLC very well thus far.



KryptoKrunch commented on Poll: Nintendo's Year of Multiplayer Gaming on...:

I voted for S.T.E.A.M. and Splatoon. Not only will these be great multiplayer titles, the single player campaigns will be very good too. (Just judging on developers behind each game).

These are two new IPs that I hope take off and become their own series. With all the people demanding new IPs from Nintendo, I expect these games to sell very well.

Devil's Third looks cool too.



KryptoKrunch commented on Poll: As amiibo Expands and Evolves, Which Fea...:

I want Wario and Ness in wave 4 but still plan on picking up Yoshi and Kirby.I think Amiibos is pretty solid thus far, especially considering it's barely kicked off not that long ago.

It'll only improve going forward. They should definitely make it so if you can have more save files on a amiibo. It's not a deal breaker for me but a slight annoyance.



KryptoKrunch commented on Hands On: We Check Out The New Nintendo 3DS XL :


Errr...what? Even after tax, shipping(some sites offer free shipping if you're order is about $25-35 or more, so this may not even count), AC Adapter(which should cost you about $10 if you don't have one already) and a game, it should be only coming out to ~$250(in that neighborhood).
