Monkeh commented on Video: Check Out Kirby's Adventure Wii on the ...:

While I'd have loved another 50% in the first week, I'll still be getting this one soon. Always love me some Kirby, but never bought it back when it first released (was probably not really looking at Wii releases anymore), so will be nice to finally play this one! And of course it's not going to be overly hard, I mean, it is Kirby after all. I mostly enjoy playing challenging games, but it's still nice to take a break and play with the Pink Puffball for a little while.



Monkeh commented on This Articulated Skyward Sword Link Toy Should...:

Huge Zelda fan here, but Link's face looks way to horrendous for me to find this 'awesome'.

EDIT: On a side note, I also haven't bought the Link Amiibo, because that looks even worse than this. I'm hoping (and guessing) there'll be a Zelda Amiibo series when Zelda Wii U releases and expect those to look better (if not for the simple fact they'll pose the model in a way they won't need the weird yellow bar for Link to lean on).



Monkeh commented on Rumour: Cave Story 2 Teased at PAX South and C...:

Yes please! This game is utterly great. I do hope they go with the original graphics though, did not care much for how the one with 3D models looked (judging from screenshots/trailers).

Note: The one with 2D graphics and the 3D depth-filter on the 3DS is my favourite port.



Monkeh commented on Video: Donkey Kong Country Returns...To Wii U:

I already re-bought this game on the 3DS as to not having to waggle. Obviously not buying this version (would've if it had supported the gamepad).

It is an utterly fantastic game of course.



Monkeh commented on Capcom's Ryozo Tsujimoto Feels Monster Hunter ...:

Main reason I've never gotten into Monster Hunter is because the one I did buy had way too long loading-times between (IMO) very small segments, which put me off the entire game instantly. I prefer my open-worlds to actually be an open-world. Plus big open-world RPG's are pretty much always popular in the West (if done right, obviously), so here's hoping they'll make one for the Wii U with an actual open-world.



Monkeh commented on Reaction: Nintendo Direct Went Crazy With Reve...:

People who say: I was going to get the XL anyway, so it doesn't matter to me; do you have no sympathy or something? I'm from Europe and I can still see how there are plenty of people who'd rather buy the regular N3DS in the US, so it still matters to me that Nintendo would do something so stupid. Maybe next time they won't sell the thing you want in your region, will you care then?



Monkeh commented on Two Tetris Titles Pulled From the 3DS eShop in...:

I feel terrible for having missed the post about it being pulled from the Eshop in Europe.. Was thinking about buying it about a week ago, if only I had done so. :'(

Not like I don't have enough games already on the 3DS, but Tetris was my first Gameboy game together with Super Mario Land 2. Ugh, really feel like a fool for not having bought it now.



Monkeh commented on Nintendo Highlights Great Games in a Rather Pr...:

Main reason I keep buying every Nintendo console, those games are all of such high quality, just like almost every game Nintendo releases. IMO Rayman feels a bit out of place though, since it's on all platforms and Nintendo had nothing to do with it (same goes for Bayonetta 1 actually :P).



Monkeh commented on The Man Behind Sega's Wonder Boy Series Hates ...:

I hope that's just from bad translating, but it seems a bit weird he would state that the game had a very bad control system (as if it were fact), instead of just voicing his opinion how he feels about the control system.



Monkeh commented on Review: Donkey Kong Country (Wii U eShop / Sup...:

Have to agree on the bosses being somewhat lacklustre, but this will always be a 10/10 in my book. Still remember getting the console and game bundled in a beautiful box, totally awestruck. And then of course enjoying the game for years. :)



Monkeh commented on Video: How Much Faster Is The New Nintendo 3DS?:

Really makes the regular 3DS look so slow in comparison. Smash 4 has been the first actual game (so not the Eshop or other apps) where the start-up time kinda bugs me, so nice to see it'll a lot better with the N3DS. Thanks for making this video Nintendo-Life! :)



Monkeh commented on Rumour: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Dat...:

I kinda doubt 8-player battles and character DLC to be true, mostly because 8 just seems like too many players for almost all stages expect Temple and character DLC just seems unlikely unless it's for both versions. Stages (even Items) as DLC would make more sense and seems very plausible.

Rumours about needing to connect your Wii U to your 3DS to get certain characters are obvious BS if you ask me, seeing as Nintendo would never act that foolish toward people who only have a 3DS (and this is coming from someone who owns both), especially since the player-base for 3DS is much larger than it is for the Wii U.
