Marshi commented on Video: Nintendo's Latest Story Trailer for The...:

Let me just start by saying Twilight Princess is one of the best games ive ever played. Its one of the rare games I have completed several times. But, and for owners of the original like myself, I still see nothing here that makes it worth buying again. The game has just had an up res and thats about it. Maybe if it runs at 60fps I would double dip but I doubt it will. All that aside if you somehow have not yet played Twilight Princess, this version is an absolute must buy, but I mean come on, who here hasn't played Twilight Princess who is a fan of the Zelda franchise?

Marshi commented on Nintendo Download: 7th January (Europe):

Good grief. Virtual console could have some corking releases, but instead we get a plethora of mario platformers. If you have super mario U or even better, Mario Maker, there is no point in having these games. Why don't Nontendo release some games that we want like The Last Story or Madworld?

Marshi commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2016:

@johnlucas A great speech dude. But without proof to all of your points for 2016 it is just that. A speech. Do you have any proof this will all be happening or is it blind belief that Nintendo will pull all this out of the bag?

Marshi commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2016:

A small list, sure. But if every single one of these games are brilliant and system defining efforts then it wont matter how small the list is. When you see a sparse release list you may at first think negatively and proclaim the legendary phrase "this console has no games". But I would wager if you conpared the number of amazing games for the wii u compared to xbox or ps4, I think the wii u will, at least, have just as many if not more than the competition.

Marshi commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's 2015?:

I polled for "disapointed". I would have polled for "very disapointing, a huge letdown" if it wasnt for the incredible Xenoblade chronicles X. That game is quite literally the only outstanding thing thats happened for Nintendo this year. Unfortunately I feel 2016 willbemuch the same, with Zelda Wii U being the only saving grace for the system and more than likely being a swan song for the wii u.

While I initially roled my eyes at yet ANOTHER fire emblem character, when I saw Corrin in action I was pretty hyped. I am not normally someone who gets hyped for dlc in a game thats already had plenty of my attention but seeing Bayonetta announced had me clapping my hands in glee at the screen. Cant wait for February to play with Bayo and Corrin, should tide me over until Twilight Princess HD comes out.
Overall this was the first smash direct I really enjoyed watching.

Marshi commented on Masahiro Sakurai Talks About Fire Emblem Chara...:

Fire Emblem is an awesome franchise but I admit its rather annoying seeing so many of them on Smash. I do like all the characters but having so many from one franchise in Nintendo's whole roster of franchises is a bit too excessive. Oh and I have no idea why people hate sword fighters, are they op?

As for my predictions despite my previous post I think Splatoon will be an easy win. Though I think that is criminal. Xenoblade Chronicles is not only my Wii U game of the year. Its not only my GOTY for any system. It is without doubt one of the best games ive played this generation of consoles. The game is outstanding.

Marshi commented on Feature: Time to Vote for Your Nintendo Life G...:

Couldnt choose Splatoon on the principle for some peoples connection the game is fundamentally broken. And no I am not talking about slow speeds as that seems not to matter. I know several people with super fast fibre optic connections and still the game refuses to hold a stable connection, booting people from a match and lowering their rank. So I could never take any vote for Splatoon seriously.

Marshi commented on Evergreen Nintendo Releases Hang Tough in the ...:

Ridiculous that games like call of duty rack in the money every single yeah despite gamers everywhere moaning that there is no originality in games anymore. But then actually unique and damn amazing games like this get left in the dust because its "too unique" or that classically stupid line: "its too japanese". The hypocrisy and double standards of some gamers depresses me. Especially Wii U owners who moan that there are no games available for the system

In my opinion the first smg is a much better game than smg2 so yeah, thats good news. But in the great spirit of a gamer who is never satisfied: Ninendo, bring us Super Paper Mario, Last Story and Mad World next please!

Marshi commented on Hitoshi Yamagami Talks a Bit About Shin Megami...:

@JaxonH Completely and unequivocally agree with you mate. Been saying for a while it is gamers that are destroying the gaming industry. Never being happy. I guarantee if the game was mostly a Fire Emblem game with a few Shin Megami Tensei elements people would be moaning that the game is too similar to the FE games on 3ds and weren't "wii u" enough.

Marshi commented on Hitoshi Yamagami Talks a Bit About Shin Megami...:

Oh and for all those wanting a "Fire Emblem Wii U", that was never going to happen. It is Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, not the other way around. Thats like wishing Smash bros X final fantasy is an actual rpg rather than simply being smash with Cloud in it. Or complaining that the dlc pack for Mario Kart with the animal crossing track in it doesn't actually feature all the gameplay of animal crossing in it.
In short, the game is a Shin Megami Tensei game first and Fire Emblem game second.

Marshi commented on Hitoshi Yamagami Talks a Bit About Shin Megami...:

Many may dismiss this after discribing it as a rpg set in modern day music industry. But then if I was to tell you about a game set around a modern japanese high school setting, with lots of mini games surrounding you living the life of a high school boy. And you can jump into tv's to fight monsters based around being inside a tv. You wouldnt think that would be very good would you? Well I just decribed Persona 4 Golden, one of the best jrpg's ever made. So yes, I am looking forward to this. It doesn't matter what the premise of a game is. If it has an involving story, great design and combat then I will be excited for it. Cant wait

Marshi commented on Fascinating Patent Shows Nintendo Portable Uti...:

While interesting and full of exciting promise. I really hope Nintendo justvmake a powerful console with a standard controller this time. Imagine a console twice as powerful as ps4 with a gamecube 2.0 controller, or something like that. It would be amazing and would entice all the hardcore gamers that have jumped ship to ps4 or xbox.
If Nintendo makes yet another console with a "revolutionary" concept or mechanic the system will be another 10 million seller, I guarantee it. Im not being a stick in the mud. I really want Nintendo to come back to the forefront of peoples living rooms like I know they can be. I mean, imagine the NX is like I described, a normal console, with launch games featuring a new Mario adventure, a new Metroid (fps controls with an epic storyline), a new F zero in 1080p 60fps with graphics shaming the likes of Forza motorsport in terms of detail and maybe even a port of Zelda Wii U running at 60 fps and ultra high res textures. Exciting isnt it? Now imagine the nx is just a slight increase in power over wii u but has this revelation in gaming like the wii u was hyped to be, with launch games featuring a brand new ip but its a quirky nintendo project that has you using your feet to control a tomato running away from a farmer, or something equally ridiculous and "unique". Not as exciting huh? See, it doesn't matter how incredible that initial game may be, Nintendo need to concentrate on something more traditional. Otherwise in 10 years they WILL go the way of Sega. Another guarantee.

So theory time! Cloud will be available shortly after the presentation and two or three more dlc characters announced to be coming in January/febuary, namely Shovel Knight, Wolf Link and...Erm...Oh heck lets go for it, SOLID SNAKE!!! I am definitely right on this guys, unless im wrong 😁

Marshi commented on Eiji Aonuma Talks Linkle's Origins and Appeara...:

I really think Linkle could be in Zelda Wii U. My theory is she is from the same village as Link where all the warriors dress in the green garb like the hero of legend. Just a theory but it would be a nice fit and I reckon they are putting linkle in Hyrule warriors first to test her popularity.

Marshi commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X Earns Modest UK Chart P...:

The game deserves better than this. Anyone interested in jrpgs, mmo's, open worlds or even just a passing interest in a game with a good story you really must buy Xenoblade Chronicles X. Eberything about the game is superb. Combat, story, graphics, immersion and addiction factors, art design, soundtrack. All absolutely astounding. Seriously it is one of the years best games. Show your support Nintendo fans and give the game a try, I promise you will not be disapointed

Marshi commented on Nintendo Download: 10th December (Europe):

Fast racing neo for sure, but also, just because the game is so damn amazing. Please buy Xenoblade Chronicles X people! Show Nintendo we love the imersive jrpgs and adventure games! GOTY for me, and yes I also have Fallout 4, Rise of the Tomb raider, The Witcher 3 and Bloodborne. And Xenoblade Chronicles X is entertaining me more than even those gigantic games. Thats how good it is.

Marshi commented on Guide: Getting Started With Xenoblade Chronicl...:

@zool Dude, two things. First: Awesome avatar, Zool was a great game for its time!...yes im old...
Second: You are doing yourself an injustice if you dont pick up this game. Did you play Xenoblade Chronicles for wii? Or do you enjoy jrpgs or mmo's? If the answer is no to all of them then...fair enough. But if you like leveling up, massive open worlds, fantastically designed monsters to take out and a huge sprawling epic story (seriously, the game begins with earth being blown up) then you really owe it to yourself to give the game a go.

Marshi commented on Guide: Getting Started With Xenoblade Chronicl...:

Lesson one is a given, but I would say its great to have to find out alot of these mechanics ourselves and over time rather than been told every single gameplay nuance before the game is even released. Anyone with a Ps4 will know that the reason games like Bloodborne are so damn addictive and atmospheric is that even veterans can be initially clueless as how to overcome certain sections/monsters. It means when you do beat them you feel like a god.
While XCX isnt anything like Bloodborne it shares that same mysteriousness. Eg. I didnt realise until my third attempt that by locking onto a certain boss's wings that I would ground him, making him a pushover to defeat. Its this lack of knowledge about what im up against that makes me love XCX. Hell, I have Fallout 4, Halo 5, Bloodborne and Rise Of The Tomb Raider and I still think XCX could be my game of the year. Its that good.

Marshi commented on Splatoon And Super Mario Maker Honoured At The...:

@Mr_Diabolical You should think of the game awards like the Oscars. Very few of your choices will win an award. While I do agree Halo 5 is jead and shoulders above the rest in terms of best multiplayer shooter, I still think Splatoon deserves praise for its unique and (rare for the genre) family friendly approach to shooters. At the end of the day the awards are normally kust an excuse to make the big wigs more money and gain a good reputation. I mean, how many "stars" were being interviewed asking for an opinion on Star Wars Battlefront and not one of them saying its an overpriced sparse content ridden and unfair shooter like it is? Still, much like the oscars you get occasional moments of brilliance and common sense. E.G. The Satoru Iwata tribute and Geoff Keighley exposing Konami for the swines they are over the whole Hideo Kojima saga.

Cant wait. Was hoping this awesome news would be that the game is out now for download like a big surprise. But beggars cant be choosers. Will be picking this up day one. You here that Nintendo? A futuristic racer is released for wii u and most people wish to purchase it day one. You wouldnt happen to have any sort of Futuristic Racer that you could make do you...?

Marshi commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 12t...:

My summary opinion in a nutshell: If you own both a wii u and a 3ds the direct was a runaway hit with 2 Dragon quest classics, Awesome Fire emblem news, A new and amazing looking character for the Hyrule warriors port, Vc Pokemon, Bravely default sequel, Support for Triforce heroes and a few more items ive probably forgot. And thats just news for 3ds. Needless to say 3ds owners have it covered over the next 6 to 9 months and with a few Wii U projects on the horizon the near future is looking grand.

However, If like me you only own a Wii U the direct was slighlty less shiny. Basically the only "new" reveal was Twilight Princess HD which was practically all but confirmed weeks ago. Dont get me wrong I am hugely excited for the game and despite the usual outcry of "Lazy port" being screamed on this site I cantveait to hear more about it. But thatbwas pretty much it. Sure we got dlc news, and great news at that, in the form of Cloud as a playable smash character and a release window for Fast racing neo. Yet as usual Wii U owners I felt were neglected some what.

Dont get me wrong, Wii U has some fantastic games incoming. Xenoblade Chronicles X, despite me owning Fallout 4, Halo 5, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Bloodborne and Batman: Arkham Knight, Could still be my game of the year. But in terms of the direct the Wii U was once again almost pushed into the corner with news we already know about. 3ds owners had a much more exciting stream of news and updates and game releases.

Marshi commented on Video: Check Out a Graphical Comparison for Th...:

Im laughing so hard here because of the insanity of it...What exactly do you people want?! You wanted Twilight Princess HD. Twilight Princess HD is coming yet you are still unhappy because this looks "lazy". What exactly are Nintendo supposed to do with a remaster? Make a completely new game? The video shows the UI has been streamlined, the textures are very sharp, the colours have been boosted and the lighting looks alot better. That is exactly the same treatment Wind Waker got. Aside from turning the game into a remake (and thus making the release date far in the future rather than march) there is nothing more Nintendo could do here. Seriously, you guys are never happy!

@TimoteiWest Well I think the sky is the limit with games like this. Id love to see plenty of dlc and would happily pay for new content (thats content Nintendo, no skins or outfits rubbish) but would also love to see the "Maker" brand become just that, a franchise that takes a well loved series andalways you to make your own content. As long as Nintendo keeps it fun and easy to do im game for anything.

F ZERO MAKER. Just think Ninento. You would have a brilliant slogan: "You Want a new F Zero? Make one yourself!"
Been able to make tracks. Customize ships. Even build them from scratch, all with the stylus. It would ve AMAZING. Please make it happen Nintendo!

Marshi commented on Talking Point: Super Mario Maker's Update Cont...:

I really like the idea of a game that keeps delivering new content sometimes right up to its next retail release. Look at games like Destiny, Driveclub and of course, Splatoon. All these games are (by todays standards) old now with Destiny being nearly a year and a quarter old, yet with new content in the form of weapons, missions, raids and even new story dlc the game is as popular as ever. I would love to see continued support for MK 8 Smash and Splatoon with more tracks, characters, levels and even just tune ups of the UI in the games would breath new life into them.

Marshi commented on Review: Freedom Planet (Wii U eShop):

I actually think an 8 is too low. This game is stunning and exactly what I have been wanting from a sonic game since around 5 seconds after I finished Sonic and Knuckles 21 years ago! Its not a Sonic game though, more a superb platformer in its own right with a generous smattering of sonic speed to compliment the game. This is honestly one of my fave Wii U games this year

Marshi commented on Video: Jessica Chobot Is Samus Aran In This La...:

Big budget Metroid. Cool! Though Chobot as Samus didnt work. To be fair its not like they could afford a triple A star. I think the perfect Samus would be Summer Glaw, Petite star of Terminator tv series and Crackpot psychic from Serenity and Firefly. I think she could pull off the stoic but charismatic personality of Samus Aran.

Marshi commented on Feature: Finding Top Speed in FAST Racing NEO:

If this isnt released within the next coupke of weeks im fairly certain this will be dalayed to 2016. I really hope its out this year though. We have had a very poor second half of the year us wii u owners but with this, project zero and xenoblade chronicles x I will be more than happy.

Much as I would love this to be true, this is yet more barmy and under productive marketing plans for the wii u. I mean, there are a few games due out before the end of the year. Its november now! And considering these games will need to be out before christmas to be in with a chance of attaining sales goals that leaves around a month and a half to bring them out. That does not leave alot of time ti make an impact.

Marshi commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes ...:

A 6...for a Zelda game. Nintendo have just royally FAILED me this year. They had a pathetic E3, shown no support at ALL for the Wii U other than occasional flashes of brilliant games like Mario Maker and Xenoblade chronicles X. The new 3ds was released and then almost imediately forgotten about by Nintendo themselves. Need I go on. I am a massive fan of Nintendo and have stubbornly fended off haters for the last 3 years, but this year has been the last straw for me. Aside from Zelda (if it comes to the platform) I am done with Nintendo.
