MeloMan commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Won't Be As Powerful As Pl...:

This is the most comments I've ever seen. Wow.I'll say that reliable or not, Nintendo HAS to have learned that a hook won't always win people. Even the most untech saavy people will look for power, even if they don't know what they're looking at lol. So i will believe this when i see it.



MeloMan commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Shipping This Time Next Ye...:

One more point, and a very important one though is this: GAMES. "What" will be available at the start, and how fast will the games come "after" that? This is a make or break point for a system. At this point, 3rd parties probably haven't even gotten a taste of the NX, so what "could" they develop in a short window as this? Further, even if Nintendo is moving projects from Wii U to NX, will "they" be ready? 2016, as far as the games themselves, seems sadly, unrealistic. I guess we'll see.



MeloMan commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Shipping This Time Next Ye...:

Nothing is impossible, but since Zelda is coming in 2016, we all know that it will be the swansong for the Wii U and may follow Twilight Princess' path of a dual release (Wii U/NX). And more than likely, Zelda will be out Holiday 2016, which would be one guaranteed good launch game. Other than that, the wind down time of 3DS is logical, the Wii U wind down time is questionable, but since we haven't heard of any blockbusters for the Wii U intended for 2017, it does give "decent" credibility to this rumor. Oh, and... E3 2016 will unveil the NX. Nintendo cannot afford to show their product, wait until say, Holiday 2017 so their competitors have time to steal their idea(s), so they will HAVE to release by holiday 2016... July 2016 is too soon, imo.



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

For once there's nothing I "would" get on that list. The only thing turning my head is the Ace Attorney themes, which I may get. I wanted Ittle Dew at one point, but it fell so far into obscurity with me that I'd play anything else on my backlog.
I admit, I don't get disappointed in releases anymore, it just gives me an excuse to catch up games and dig into my wishlist. All I'm waiting for is this:

Mighty No. 9
Devil's Third
StarFox Zero
Xenoblade Chronicles X
Shovel Knight (stuff)
Xeodrifter free Wii U crossbuy (I have the 3DS version but haven't touched it yet)
... And the rest are games that were announced and "could" come out this year, but seriously, other than Earthbound Beginnings shocking me, there's nothing that interests me.



MeloMan commented on The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Director...:

I don't believe in "make this original character into another thing to meet an agenda, politic, etc." A character was created the way they were... if there's such a need for another character similar to it, then create a whole new character. Just because someone wants Superman AND Superwoman doesn't mean it's a "good idea". Today's world-- Just leave it alone.



MeloMan commented on Nintendo Isn't Talking About NX Because It Doe...:

This is pretty much normal business to me. Never let your competitor know the cards you have. Duh. E3 2016 will be here soon enough; Which is interesting, because if they're going to divulge details of it then, and the Wii U is for sure going to live through 2016, does that mean the NX releases fall 2017? Or is E3 2016 too soon to tell the world "anything"? Questions, questions. I'm just going to be patient and continue getting the most out of my Wii U (and 3DS) while they lasts.



MeloMan commented on There Are Now Over 600 DSiWare Games And Apps:

Text editor? Do you mean like Nnooo's MyNotebook application or something else?

The part that get's me about DSiWare is that the games NEVER go on sale or are discounted. I know it's stemming from the extremely non-robust system that ran/runs both WiiWare and DSiWare (or just Nintendo not giving a care). Their prices are insane to not be lower especially since the eShop is a complete successor to the DSiWare, and some of those games are what, 4, 5 years old? I always wanted to get Mighty Flip Champs and Mighty Milky Way before I tried Mighty Switch Force, but at this rate, I'll let those fall into obscurity and pick up with MSF. Last thing I'll say is Nintendo ought to en masse add the WiiWare/DSiWare libraries to the eShops and kill off those limited, pointless, tripe "shops", but I don't call the shots.



MeloMan commented on Working On F-Zero Wouldn't Have Been My Idea O...:

This is why I don't get up in arms about "bring my fav franchise back!!!". It'll come, when it comes, until then, we're not getting it unless (and until) Nintendo brass says so. In the meantime, I'll look forward to F.A.S.T. Neo to satiate my high speed hovercar desire.



MeloMan commented on Masahiro Sakurai Confirms That Recent Super Sm...:

Sorry to spam NL, but I thought of two more characters I'd love to see: Dr. Wily (tossing all kinds of inventions, gadgets, bots, etc. our way) and Ken or Akuma. I've really gotta stop hyping myself like this...



MeloMan commented on Masahiro Sakurai Confirms That Recent Super Sm...:

I'd like to see certain series' get more characters. Like for Sonic, I hope it to be none other than Tales or possibly a bad guy, which would be Eggman. From DKC, I'd like to see Dixie, possibly King K. Rool. I'd like to see Mechon Fiona from from Xenoblade Chronicles. I'd even like to be surprised by Konami making a return and giving us Snake again along with Simon Belmont.

But there's still one character that I know most don't know, and Nintendo doesn't seem to want to remember either, developed and released specifically for North America, and that is none other than Mike Jones from StarTropics. I think he makes for an interesting character that may appear like Ness (with his Yo-Yo), but would have all his other weapons as well. PLEASE somebody put him in! :)



MeloMan commented on Nintendo Download: 25th June (North America):

Hmm. The one game I simply refused to pay $39.99 for was Attack on Titan:HiC. I love the anime, and I feel the gameplay, especially the online modes (I hope people are playing it), really make the game a worthy purchase, but I'm fighting a backlog of games and only have so much $$ to go around. But I may just bite for $29.99, we'll see. I wish the G.G games had come when I truly needed them back when I had a DSi. Again, against my backlog, despite them being only $2, I can't put in the time for some of these simple pleasures (some of them are real diamonds in the rough, DSiWare games or not). Lastly, Never Alone. I'm very disappointed that the game is so buggy on Wii U; apparently it wasn't this way on other systems. I moved it to the top of my want list cause I love the type of game it is, but I will drop it to the bottom and await a patch before I get hyped about it again. Maybe it'll even have a price drop at that time.



MeloMan commented on Fire Emblem Fates Iwata Asks Explores Multiple...:

I'm excited for more FE, but I still haven't decided which version I'm going to get. A friend of mine likes the more challenging FE, so something tells me he will get Conquest. If he does, I'll get other one. We'll see...



MeloMan commented on Nintendo Gets Tough With Miiverse Bans, and So...:

Though we're entitled to freedom of expression, it doesn't means we "should" be as immature as possible. Follow rules-- it's pretty easy. Don't like the rules, don't use Miiverse (or any other social place that has moderators). I'm sure people could make a case about NL modding on these comments, but guess what? It's "NL's site", so if their rules are unacceptable, LEAVE.

Jeez, the fights people pick /rant



MeloMan commented on Review: Never Alone (Wii U eShop):

Awwww. I was so psyched for this game, too. While I love what this game is about, that's really a deal breaker having all of those issues. Worse yet, for the asking price, there's no way I would pay that. I will still leave this on my wish list, but I will definitely hold out for a possible patch and price drop until then. Very disappointing.



MeloMan commented on Keiji Inafune Would Still Be Interested in Mak...:

Capcom is too proud to allow Inafune to collab for MML3, even if it was just for that one game. In the meantime, sad as it is, I will remember the good ol' days of MegaMan, and look forward to Inafune's future works with much anticipation. Sometimes the spirit of something living on is more than enough life for the future... you will not be forgotten MegaMan.



MeloMan commented on Nintendo Download: 18th June (North America):

Let's see:

  • I downloaded the SSB DLC
  • Downloaded the SSB controller app for 3DS
  • Downloaded Earthbound Beginnings

Looks like I'll get yet another crack at an Another World discount. I WILL get it this time, and I guess I'll go ahead and pick up the already dirt cheap Zombie Incident. Not a bad week compared to far worse one's I've seen.



MeloMan commented on New Trailer Emerges for Shin Megami Tensei X F...:

Like someone previously stated, I'm... confused... as to what this is. I've only sampled the SMT games, and I like their themes and know OF them, but I'm not crazy about their gameplay or dungeon crawling. FE I'm a dedicated fan. But this video... it seems to be neither of either franchise a whole lot. Perhaps more SMT than FE, but still. I want to support both of these companies, but unfortunately I will be waiting for a review so I can understand exactly WHAT I would be getting into lol



MeloMan commented on Mario & Luigi Paper Jam Brings More RPG Action...:

So they decided to consolidate the two Mario RPG series'. It's funny, at first, the Paper Mario series had to grow on me, but I can say that I like it, but I've always loved the M&L series. Now here they are, fused into one game. It can't fail at this point, plus Paper Mario has some serious redeeming to do anyway. I wouldn't mind if this was a farewell to Paper Mario-- we don't really need two series anyway, but that's just imo.



MeloMan commented on The First Mother Game Is Finally Coming To The...:

And now the Mother 3 begging will begin, and reach a fevered pitch :)
Seriously though, I had a chance to sample Earthbound Zero on ROM and while it may not stack up to Earthbound, I will HAPPILY play this game BECAUSE it's Earthbound. Wow, oh wow... I don't have the words right now. Surely if this can come, one day... one day, Earthbound 2 (Mother 3) could come. Off topic, Itoi is a rather deep fellow. I'd love to chat with the guy :)



MeloMan commented on Reaction: Nintendo Dropped the Ball, Not the M...:

I live in Detroit myself (didn't know so many metro Detroit and Michigan people were in here) and it's disappointing to know that even if I wanted to participate in this, I'd have to get to Schaumburg, IL. Would it really have been that hard to have like, everyone else who has an internet connection, compete between certain times, and let those be the qualifiers for the final round(s)? I get that it's celebrating the spirit of the NWC1990, but damn, we don't have to still have a tourney by those "day's standards", do we?



MeloMan commented on ​Famitsu Reveals Some Fresh Details on Fire ...:

I love everything I've heard, but I'm a little worried about the whole one side or the other thing. I'm likely to do the light version, as I like to enjoy FE rather than scrape through it. And I usually only give FE a go around only once, but the dark side, hard mode or not, is tempting me to invest a ton of money into this installment. I can't wait for more details. Never thought I'd be nerve-wracked about a new FE...



MeloMan commented on Review: High Strangeness (Wii U eShop):

You aren't the only one finishing Tropical Freeze lol

I don't know why, but I feel like the creator took inspiration from Secret of Evermore in crafting this game. Weird. But either way, maybe I can catch this game on a sale in the future. In the meantime, it will fit nicely into my backlog.
