luckybreak commented on Flipnote Studio 3D in Review – Free & Simple...:

Sad to see the sharing portion is gone.

I have so many fond memories of making and watching animations on the DSi version, going through flip note Hatena to see all the battles, nintendo themed videos, music videos, and general silly kid stuff that just felt so awesome and special to me. Thinking back one of the top videos was just a "petition to get a youtube app on Dsi..." at least that came true on the 3DS!

luckybreak commented on Super Smash Bros. Pro Players Tackle the Probl...:

The smash community is a joke and here is why:

"Pro" Players call other people who play the game with friends or online "scrubs" or "casuals" and put them down in a derogatory manner.

"Causal" players (anybody who plays but not in tournaments- my loose definition) call pro players "whiney" and ask "who cares" to small balance issues that only affect competitive play.

Why can't we all respect each other and bond over our love for this game, REGARDLESS of each person's skill level?

luckybreak commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U GameCube Controlle...:

I didn't pre-order this game and learned my lesson! My family was in disagreement on who was preordering and it just never happened. Thus it has created a huge fiasco and upset everyone. After being hyped every day for this game for over a year its quite anticlimactic and disappointing. Luckily they have the bundle available online at walmart (even if i did have to do rush shipping) :(

Wow who knew jimmy was so intense about MK8? Im surprised he is obsessed with talking about the cyber slick wheels too. He must actually play it a lot. I still don't like him. Such a tool to the modern consumerist society.

luckybreak commented on Masahiro Sakurai Explains Why Mewtwo Isn't Pai...:

If smash bros was made by ubisoft or a similar AAA title maker, who likes to get as much money as possible Im sure the clone characters would have been paid DLC. They could have also made the classic stages paid DLC. But they didn't and I'm happy with that.

There is already SO MUCH CONTENT. Seriously 50 characters is plenty. And Sakurai doesn't want gamers to think the game isn't full of content, because it is.

AEGIS DEFENDERS YES!! I am actually friends with somebody on the team! Looking forward to the game. And I have a feeling it will be on the Wii U, I mean they are only 5k away from the stretch goal, it would be a complete shame if they didn't.

So what is CRAZY is that one of my Facebook friends posted about how he was so excited he got hired for a gig just to play super smash bros! He assumed it was for a commercial, but could not talk about it. (I'm in LA btw). It turned out to be this. No joke.

luckybreak commented on This Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire Over...:

I can't decide who my starter should be!

In sapphire and emerald I picked Mudkip both times, but there are so many awesome water types I could put on my team instead. And there are hardly ANY fire types in this game for some reason. I might end up with Blaziken, even if I did have him in X/Y

luckybreak commented on Review: Bayonetta 2 (Wii U):

well W101 was pretty awesome as far as the demo goes so I'm hoping this game is similar, but with less silly cartoonish stuff. Just worried about the oversexualization of the main character....considering that Isn't a push for me to buy the game as I don't swing that way.

How did that mario player get to the final match? He sucked at recovering. If he knows his recovery is really bad, he shouldn't try and do ledge guarding/off stage tactics. So many DUMB decisions in the final match on mario's part it was painful to watch.

luckybreak commented on Hardware Review: The New Nintendo 3DS Is The B...:

Compared to the original system, how much larger are the screens? Like I know the XL is 90% larger.

I have the original 3DS and have been dying for that extra screen size, but if its a nice medium then I might get the smaller one for the faceplates. But It seems the xl has the more "premium" feel and i like the gamecube blue color.

@JaxonH Very observant remarks. Ultimately commenters on nintendo life are so niche and not representative of more than a few percent of the nintendo games user base. More casual gamers are rarely concerned with things avid fans are: example being smash bros.

I showed it to classmates who didn't know there was a new one, and it was for handheld, and they were blown away! They were most excited about just playing as pac-man and mega man, they couldn't give a damn if the "wifi was semi laggy in 4 player matches" or that they took out the ice climbers.

Nintendo just doesn't understand marketing and tends to make it seem too childish and unappealing.

Nintendo is pretty aware that when you buy smash bros, you are gonna be pretty heavily absorbed in it, so its not like they want another triple A title coming out at the same exact time. Keep in mind casual gamers still have to catch up and get Mario Kart 8.

Hoping this holiday season with Smash Bros AND MK8 will turn the tide. (along with all the previous spectacular wii u titles that people haven't bought yet- hyrule warriors etc)

luckybreak commented on Exclusive: Masahiro Sakurai on Planned Acciden...:

Problems with your statements Sakurai:
1.The models for zelda, ganondorf, and several others, plus their attacks and animations look very similar to brawl. Plus about half the stages are repeats. I don't believe it was built from scratch, I believe they remade a lot more than they are letting on. Plus lots of the music is the same as previous games.
2. The "dynamic range" comment is spot on. The joy and hook of super smash is the wide and varied move sets of each character. Each is unique, personal and fun to play with because they are so different in style of play. Clones are the antithesis to this idea. For that reason everybody hates clones.
3. Very little "innovate" gameplay has been derived from the unique opportunity for each player to have their own screen. What about a level where the platforms are placed in different areas on each person's screens and are invisible to other players? What about the camera zooming and focusing on just you instead, since the screen isn't being shared you don't need to always show the far edge of the screen. Touch screen controls? Second screen level?

An amazing game, that I and many will love and play for hundreds of hours, its just always a shame to see masters miss the obvious when they noses are buried in their work. There is always hope for patches, and I for one will be playing the Wii U version more simply due to controls, screen size, and less lag in online mode.
