ljinkakidd commented on Gawk at the Dragon Quest VIII Promotional Post...:

If this doesn't come to the US or Europe...shame on Square Enix. Like...almost everything is done already!!! What would be the issue?

And I am SICK of hearing the "Dragon Quest isn't popular here"... Dragon Quests 8 and 9 have sold over 1.2 million each outside of Japan. Much more than the 200-400K of Dragon Warrior VII (2000).

Games like Bravely Default, Shin Megami Tensei, etc. get released and sell way worse than main stream Dragon Quest titles. Square Enix hasn't given Dragon Quest enough time to become popular. They give us the crappy ports and remakes but the games that could actually make Dragon Quest sell...(Dragon Quest VII, X, Monsters 1&2 3DS) they won't even give them a chance. Dragon Quest VII would sell well on 3DS in the US if they give it a decent marketing campaign. Dragon Quest X in a way, revolutionized MMORPGs in the sense that a story was present for your to progress through. I think it could have been a sleeper hit in the US but they just don't give Dragon Quest a chance to prove itself.



ljinkakidd commented on ​Unseen64 Digs Up Some Screens of Brimstone,...:

WOW! I looks amazing! I would have played it for sure.
That Lufia port chokehold screwed Taito up didn't it. Not to mention, it didn't even get released. I would have played this over Lufia 1 any day though. It seemed ambitious.



ljinkakidd commented on Zelda Lookalike Oceanhorn: Monster Of Uncharte...:

I actually like ripoffs in the meantime. While waiting for a real proper game, it is fun to me to play games that rip off or copy a game's formula or even aesthetics. It's not like Link is in the game or anything. Nintendo doesn't own boat travel or cute mini graphics. I'm all for it... as long as it comes to Wii U that is...Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy... all started on Nintendo, let's not forget them now.



ljinkakidd commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's DeNA Plans and Ideas...:

Exactly. I don't know why people, all of a sudden, don't think Nintendo won't make quality mobile games. Heck, they had to make sure their early games were stamped with a seal of quality before anyone else even thought about it. Believe me, we're in good hands.
As a side note, I miss the way Iwata used to look. He doesn't look too good right now. Hope he gets better.



ljinkakidd commented on Guide: Everything We Know So Far About Nintend...:

I like how other people are so concerned for a company that makes more money than they make blood cells. Nintendo will be FINE in this en devour. They've partnered up with a pretty respectable online giant and they'll be focusing on the one thing they do most, game development. It's a win win situation. My question is, how thin can they spread Shiggy, Anouma, and Tezuka and would that affect the quality of the games.



ljinkakidd commented on Two Tribes Co-Founder Doesn't Think He Would H...:

That's the Nintendo way and they've been doing it for years. If you're a great game developer, chances are if you like it, others will like it. It's logic. If you aren't enthusiastic about something you're creating, nobody else will be either.



ljinkakidd commented on Freedom Planet Bringing Its Brand of Sonic-Sty...:

Why didn't Sonic just stay where it was? So...many...hardships. What haunted Castlevania for the longest time is what's haunting Sonic. Sega needs to understand that people loved sonic for his 2D roots but they keep dumping on those roots and insisting that Sonic "Must go 3D to be cool". I hope Sega understands that this is what people remember about Sonic. They're too busy trying to turn him into something he's not. I'm not saying that all 3D sonic games have been horrible, it's just a vast majority of them have and they pay very little respects to the genesis titles that built him. Yeah, Generations was a surprise, but it wasn't anything really new. I'm picky, so are a lot of Sonic fans.



ljinkakidd commented on Harvest Moon 3 And Lufia: The Legend Returns R...:

Lufia: Legend Returns was a pretty decent game I think. The graphics were great for a GBC game and the music was awesome. Maybe I loved it so much because I was a kid when I played it back then and it was all I had for a while. But, if you even like RPGS, give it a try and play it for yourself.



ljinkakidd commented on Review: EarthBound (Wii U eShop):

This is definitely one of the best games in existance. I love it so much. It has aged reaaaaaaalllly well in the game world. You get about 50+ hours of playtime for $10 and it is well worth it. I really want a 3D remake but I guess that won't happen will it?



ljinkakidd commented on Game Freak Uses a Silhouette to Tease a New Co...:


Yes, I know that, I am talking about the Orange League/first series with Ash as the main character. I'm not talking about the newer games. I just want a Pokemon game that looks like Ni No Kuni aestheticly. Pokemon red and blue had few scenarios that match the Anime. To understand me better tbere is a Pokemon Fire Red hack that takes you through the first dozen episodes or so.



ljinkakidd commented on Smash Bros. Melee EVO Tournament Broke Viewer ...:

I haven't played Melee since some Hispanics broke into my house and stole every game to my name... and a package of Maruchan Ramen Noodles. :/

I will try to find out how to get into this competition if Melee shows up next year. I guarantee I'd win with Dr. Mario. He has electric fists.

Anyway, great job Smash. Hopefully Nintendo puts it on Wii U VC. It doesn't even have to be playable on the GamePad just give it to me!



ljinkakidd commented on SteamWorld Dig Dev: Wii U Is "Very Powerful", ...:

Nintendo should have called it Super Wii or Wii 2 or something else. Wii U just doesn't make sense. And as stubborn as Nintendo is, they won't change it. Their marketing efforts are the worst I've ever seen by them in years. But still, why does Nintendo always have to innovate to get their console across? PS4 and Xbone are just their 7th gen brothers with more horsepower. I don't think Nintendo should have to market the Gamepad with the Wii U all the time. It has a Pro Controller and other alternatives. Then again, Nintendo got themselves into this mess.



ljinkakidd commented on Satoru Iwata Confirms Nintendo's Plans To Brin...:

Iwata is a smart guy. He knows what he's doing. The Wii and Ds did great under his wing. I just hope that we get Dragon Quest VII and Dragon Quest Monsters. I also heard that they will remake Dragon Quest Monsters 2... I will actually learn Japanese for that game.

Of all the 3DS RPGS out there right now I can honestly say, that even though it is a remake, Dragon Quest VII will be a shining star of all of them.



ljinkakidd commented on Square Enix Teases New Projects on Anniversary...:


I know its hard to believe but yeah look it up. I thought that too but it wasn't true. CGI wasn't cheap in the olden days and many other factors played into it. Game economics aren't always what they seem. Back then a million units or more was success for a game. Today, it's like a million is needed to stay afloat.

What we know is that FF and DQ are huge but Enix still had cash to burn and was quite hesitant on actually merging. I love video game history so this is a good subject for me.



ljinkakidd commented on Square Enix Teases New Projects on Anniversary...:

WAIT WHAT IF THEY REMAKE SUPER MARIO RPG!!! (Yeah I know it won't happen but here's to hoping...) NO REALLY WHAT IF THEY REMAKE CHRONO TRIGGER... HD!!!

Anyway, I don't know why people continue to leave the Enix out of it all. Do you guys know that without Enix there would be no Square Enix as we know it today? Square was financially saved by Enix when the merge happened I hope you all know.

As for me I could go for a Final Fantasy 5,6 3DS. Final Fantasy VII PS4.
Dragon Quest 8 HD for Wii U and PS4. Dragon Quest 3 HD for Wii U!!!
If Dragon Quest 3 is ever remade for HD on Wii U Square Enix will never report another loss for the rest of the year. That game is just tooooo EPIC!
So yeah, I think they should release HD remakes of both sides' most famous games. Square's being Final Fantasy VII and Enix's being Dragon Quest III.
I just hope it isn't another smartphone game... ugh.
