MeloMan commented on Tournament Players Pass Judgement On 8-Player ...:

I prefer SSB tourneys that Free for all, everything on. I come from the line of thinkers that embrace the chaos of SSB. 1v1's are cool, but I love SSB in it's full glory. And I'm just salivating at getting my chance to play 8P SSB.



MeloMan commented on "Pre-Download" Service to Kick Off With Super ...:

Good idea, but I prefer a physical copy though. It's all about that resell value for me (though selling SSBWiiU won't come until very, VERY late in the Wii U's lifecycle or if a new SSB is announced for the next-gen, whichever comes first).



MeloMan commented on Nintendo Boasts New 3DS is its Best-Selling Re...:

If you listened to me sooner Nintendo we would've been had this system... 2 years overdue imo. As much as I want this, I'm not sure if I will even get one by the time it's released in NA unless I start seeing some mandatory reasons, and for me, the XC port is not a good enough reason since I've already played it on the Wii.



MeloMan commented on Nintendo Download: 30th October (North America):

Yeesh... As if I don't have enough to play. Pretty solid week... guess it's time to open my creaky, cryin' wallet. Now, for my thoughts (and purchases):

1) Gargoyle's Quest II: The Demon Darkness. Believe it or not, I got enough junk on my 3DS, and I seem to be leaning hard to my Wii U as of late (I guess Hyrule Warriors and Bayonetta will do that), so I will purchase this for the big ol' TV screen. I'm actually curious to see how it will look. Besides that, GQ1 was a GREAT game, so I'm glad to continue this series finally!

2) Demon's Crest. Didn't know these series' were related back in the day and it didn't seem interesting to me back then, but since I'm a new born fan of the series (and SNES games) there's no way I WON'T be scooping this one up now.

3) Resident Evil 3D: Mercs. This was a game I passed on with the whole save file fiasco as I wanted to rent it way back when, but passed on it once I heard RERev was coming. Depending on the "discount" price, I "may" pick it up, or leave it buried in the ground.



MeloMan commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd October (North America):

Ok, this week is on OVERLOAD, seriously. I forgot about Shantae had another game coming and lost track that it was coming this week... haven't even got around to finishing the original Shantae for 3DS VC yet (gotta get on that... AFTER I finish Phoenix Wright:AA:DD). Fantasy Life comes NOW... I have NO time to play it. Thank goodness I've played and beaten Castlevania:AoS (have fun those of you who never played it... great game). Of course Bayonetta 2 is out, but so is part 1, and I'm going to play 1 before 2, but that is a dilemma in itself: I don't have $60 to blow on the double pack, but I'm determined to play part 1 before 2, so I guess I'll need to get home and download part 1 for $30, and wait 5 more days for part 2 to come through GameFly (thanks GF... you said it was releasing tomorrow). As last but not least, Hyrule Warriors is finally on it's way to me from GF, all while prepping $60+ for the bundled SSBWiiU in November. Gaming ain't easy! :o



MeloMan commented on Nintendo Confirms Retro Halloween Scares for t...:

Gargoyle's Quest II: The Demon Darkness AND Demon's Crest??? At long last and both at once?? I'll probably get Gargoyle's Quest II on 3DS and Demon's Crest will likely be my first Wii U Virtual Console purchase. Merry Halloween!



MeloMan commented on Nintendo 64x64: Mystical Ninja 2 Starring Goemon:


Ah, and the references of Jichael Mackson. Music and wit were the things I loved about this series. Speaking of music, in GGA, the first castle (Edo Castle?) and Toad Pass(?) were two of the catchiest themes I've ever heard in a game. I can still hum them today.



MeloMan commented on Review: Donkey Kong: Original Edition (3DS eSh...:

I don't know about everyone else, but all I need is the original Arcade edition itself. I know Nintendo listed technical reasons why they can't emulate it, but it still seems odd to me. It appeared in DK64 in all it's glory, so I know it's POSSIBLE. Probably alone in this, but I'll never understand Nintendo on that one...



MeloMan commented on Nintendo Download: 2nd October (North America):

Meh, Wii U SSB for me, so nothing for me this week. It's cool, I'm still trying to get Deus Ex:HR:DC and Ace Attorney:PW:DD beaten so I can move on to Hyrule Warriors and prep for Bayonetta 2... WHEW! :)



MeloMan commented on Review: Art of Balance (Wii U eShop):

I'm guessing Tower Tumble isn't online? That's too bad, sounds like that would be great to play online. Regardless, I love this series, and I never thought I'd say this, but I love it enough that I'd have it on my 3DS AND on the big screen though essentially the same game. Good series, Shin'en :)



MeloMan commented on Wii U System Update 5.2.0 Brings Folders, New ...:

The folders are definitely overdue, so thank you Nintendo. I really have to give a thanks for:

  • Quick Start will now also boot up if you press the TV button on the GamePad (My GOD this would piss me off... I had to do Power THEN TV button THEN turn on the TV lol :D )
  • An icon to start the Download Management application has been added to the Wii U Menu (Now I don't HAVE to bring up the Home menu just to get there)

Thank you Nintendo.



MeloMan commented on Want Bayonetta 2 On PS4 And Xbox One? You Migh...:

Guess there's always next generation that "might" get this as a port to those systems, but yeah, sounds like this one is truly, truly, Nintendo exclusive. I'm sure there will always be some people that will say things like "Bayonetta wasn't all that good anyway" lol :)



MeloMan commented on Limited GameCube Controller Edition of Super S...:

I may get that, but I have 3 GCN controllers and 2 Wavebirds still, most of which are in great shape, so I reeeeally don't need another GCN controller. Once I see the breakdown of pricing I'll figure something out. All I really need is that adapter and SSBWiiU itself and I'm golden.



MeloMan commented on Video: New Bravely Second Trailer Sets The Sce...:

Similar to a previous poster, I wanted to get BD but the timing was killer as I was playing too many games already. Imma try to give BD a shot as soon as possible... but I'll have to pull off the impossible to do it...



MeloMan commented on Nintendo 64x64: Banjo-Kazooie:

This game was the truth when I played it. A true testament to Rare in it's hayday. Sadly to this day, I still never played Banjo-Tooie :(



MeloMan commented on Nintendo 64x64: Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon:

Ohhhhhh YES!! Mystical Ninja. This was the first of the series I played, and I took a chance on it renting it one day from Blockbuster. Right from the opening theme to the awesome music, I loved this game and series ever since. I wish this series never died. :)
