lilpieri commented on Atlus Just Can't Stop Offering Discounts, With...:

This is tempting. I have been meaning to pick up some of the Atlus titles I have missed, plus I have been craving to download more of my games as it's easier to access them. And you cannot beat these prices. The only issue is that my hours for work have been cut back significantly and the few money I have for games is already set aside for other games... I'll pick up my next pay check and see if I have any extra money for some of these now!

Bravely Default was one of the games I was most excited to play this year... and I'm ashamed to say I haven't picked it up yet. I heard nothing but good things about it, but it just came out at a bad time. I was still playing through a lot of games from the holidays, I had a lot of schoolwork, and I did have some unfortunate family issues around that time. Hopefully I can manage to find some time and money this holiday season for it.

That being said, the sequel looks pretty promising. I love it when developers make sequels, as long as they don't get carried away with them. This is without a doubt on my list for next year.



lilpieri commented on Sakurai Explains Reasoning Behind Removal Of I...:

This is one of the saddest things for me. The Ice Climbers were my main back in Brawl. I wasn't amazing with them, in fact I could never successfully pull off their brutal chain grab, but they were one of the most entertaining characters to play as in my opinion.

If they couldn't get them running on the 3DS version... then that's alright. But not adding them into the Wii U roster is absurd. I mean, there is no reason not to. The 3DS and Wii U versions don't feature any cross play at a gameplay stand point, so there is no reason to leave them out.

This is why I was never interested in the way they were developing these games. The idea of having Smash Bros. being developed at the same time for both the Wii U and 3DS was interesting at first, but once they confirmed there would be no cross play and said they will have different modes, I quickly got a sour taste.

Don't get me wrong; I'm still insanely thrilled to pick up these titles. It's just that I feel like development for the titles, specifically the Wii U version, was limited due to this dual development process. They tried to hard too make the two games correspond with each other. I just wish they worked on the 3DS version completely and then moved onto the Wii U. Having two completely different Smash titles would have been sweet since these two don't feature cross play.

Maybe it's just the fact that the Wii U version doesn't have much about it announced so far in terms of game modes... I mean, will there be a level editor again? And what will be the main single player mode? And will missions return? They have to announce these things soon because without them, the Wii U Smash will be looked at as a missed opportunity. I just wish the Wii U version had its own soul, if that makes sense.



lilpieri commented on Review: Fantasy Life (3DS):

I was about to complain that it sucks getting it last in the states, but I can't because it's usually Europe that has to wait longer for games. Glad to see you guys over seas are getting this early on!



lilpieri commented on Review: Super Mario Ball (Wii U eShop / Game B...:

Not saying this game was bad, but I never really enjoyed it when I was little for whatever reason. I'm not sure if I found it repetitive or if I didn't like the physics. Looking back, however, the game looks really good visually and I kind of want to at least try playing it again.



lilpieri commented on Nintendo Confirms Details of Its Super Smashin...:

These are some really good deals. I love seeing this. In fact...

I was thinking about trading in all of my physical 3DS games and downloading all of them when they go on sale. Anyone think this is a good idea or should I just keep my physical copies? I love physical copies of games (I am a collector), however, the portable convenience would be very nice, especially since I go out a lot. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

@Stark_Nebula Simple solution: Don't go on Smogon to find a competitive match if you don't create your own team with the aid of generators such as PokeGEN or PokeSAV. The competitive battlers are so anal about everything they do that they make the legitimacy of their Pokemon as real as possible and they never abuse things such as illegal EVs or move sets. I play competitive battles and I can tell you right now, if you are on those sites such as Smogon or PO looking for a casual match then you're in the wrong place. These "hackers" (which is funny that they're called so because they're not hacking at all) are nothing more then people that like to play against a select few amount of people that truly understand the game mechanics to their fullest and just don't have the time to legitimately raise their 48+ competitive Pokemon to battle in the ever changing competitive meta game. The only thing that I agree with in this article are the people in tournaments using illegal Pokemon because a lot of the times they have stats such as 252 EVs in every stat, which is just unfair.

I don't see any issue with these so called "cheaters". They aren't using any impossible stat combinations for Pokemon, and they are used only for competitive play. Most people set up organized battles through Smogon, and no one uses them to cheat their way through the main game, and if they do, then that is their decision. In no way is anyone hacking the Pokemon game, as the app used for this just sets up an alternative IP adress for the DS system to get the Pokemon from. It's not like you are messing with the games coding or system files and making illegal "super" Pokemon. This is the only was people can play competitively, and quite honestly, I think it's great to see these people do this. If Gamefreak is really considered about these so called "hackers", then they should make a mode of online play separate from the main game where you can pick your own Pokemon team. These competitive players are making the game better, and I just can't see how they are considered cheaters.
