nf_2 commented on Rumour: Dubious Walmart Listing Suggests Suppo...:

They can continue with the sticker thing if: 1) they make them (or some of them) reusable 2) they don't make you have carry the most random, boxspace-wasting stickers around with no indication of when you'll need them or without any logic as to why they work until they just do and 3) BRING BACK PARTNERS

Sticker Star was fine outside of those, but those were some pretty significant flaws. Going into a boss fight only to realize you needed that one sticker from 3 world ago that takes up 8 spaces and is totally useless otherwise is not a good concept. If you're going to call it Paper Mario, it had better actually be Paper Mario.



nf_2 commented on Nintendo Download: 4th December (North America):

@Whopper744 Not at all. Sacred Stones lets you grind if you want to, but in the original (as in most FE titles) you progress from chapter to chapter without anything chance in between to level up. On easy and normal difficulties there shouldn't be any major struggles though.



nf_2 commented on Fire Emblem Looks Set to Arrive on the North A...:

It's only a couple years late and on the wrong console, but I guess that's ok. I still have my cartridge so I won't be downloading until it's released on a portable system. Still a must play game if you haven't had the chance though.



nf_2 commented on Review: Watch Dogs (Wii U):

From reading the review, it seemed to me like the score would have been a 7-8. Unless that frame rate drop is horrendous, I don't feel like anything that was mentioned really justifies the score. That being said, I have watched a few videos of the game, and the driving parts look like they control poorly. I agree that the sequel will probably smooth over any problems the original had (just like with Assassin's Creed) and this will be another solid series. Unfortunately, this version is not going to sell well enough to justify that sequel to come to the Wii U.



nf_2 commented on The November Club Nintendo Rewards Are Now Up ...:

Starship Defense is actually pretty good, but it's the 3rd month it's been an award. Everything is else is pretty ehh... I normally don't like to complain (these are free games) but there are better options they could offer without a doubt.



nf_2 commented on Shulk amiibo Listed as GameStop Exclusive in t...:

I don't really like Gamestop (because they really do rip people off for used games/consoles in particular) but the hate the company gets really is ridiculous. They are the only dedicated gaming store and outside of their pre-owned business, there is nothing "sinful" about them like everyone seems to suggest.

This is one of the few amiibos I would consider getting. Ike and Link are the others (although I prefer the Path of Radiance Ike much more than the Radiant Dawn Ike...).



nf_2 commented on Two Pokémon Game Boy Color Titles Dated For N...:

FINALLY get the TCG but it's way later than it needs to be. Price is expected (and perhaps a little high) but at least it's here. I don't know where my original cartridge is anymore and I've been itching to play this for some reason.



nf_2 commented on Nintendo 64x64: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's ...:

MM does the best job in the series of taking a theme and running with it. No video game has ever made me feel as much as this game, and I've never been so happy to be depressed. Probably my favorite part of the game is how each major area of the game follows the 5 stages of grief, but really it's just about perfect barring that nasty fetch quest for the giant's mask. A remake would be great, but I'd prefer a Wii U one over a 3DS for sure. This is a game that would really benefit from an HD treatment.



nf_2 commented on Nintendo 64x64: Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon:

My brother and I rented this so many times. I really regret not having just bought it since it's a game I've wanted to go back and play. We did end up buying the 2d side scrolling sequel, but I hated it compared to the free roaming one.



nf_2 commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Brings Circ...:

It's a good thing the New 3ds is coming out soon. ;)
Anyway, you'd have to flicking that thing around pretty darn hard if it's breaking. With how I play Mario Kart, I thought mine would have been busted a long time ago but it's still 100%. If your circle pad breaks, it's all on you. If there is one thing Nintendo can do, it is to make uber durable products.



nf_2 commented on Aussie Rating Outs Wii U Virtual Console Relea...:

For those of you who are wondering, this is a pretty good game. Definitely worth it if you're into SRPGs. It's got a lot of competition on the GBA in that category (Fire Emblems, Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced) but it's worth a go for sure. It's relatively easy, so this would be a place to start if you're new to the genre.



nf_2 commented on Here's Another Huge Batch of Hyrule Warriors S...:

The screens look great, but it's still basically a Dynasty Warriors game... I want to like this game but I just can't see it being fun when all you'll be doing is hitting one button in every scenario.



nf_2 commented on Ike Joins the Battle in Super Smash Bros. for ...:

I'm obviously excited, but after reading the comments I do agree that adding Chrom doesn't make a whole lot of sense, even though I wanted(expected?) him before the Ike reveal. Robin would be fun with all the magic and weapons, but I think if there's going to be another FE character it'd be Hector before anyone else. Hector is pretty popular among the FE faithful. Although if Chrom is in, it looks like I've got to learn how to use 3 FE characters now.

Also, I don't see how people are thinking Ike should be fast here. In Brawl it didn't make sense that he was slow given they used his Path of Radiance build, but with his Radiant Dawn build he's obviously going to be a brute. People that big won't be fast too.



nf_2 commented on The Denpa Men 3: The Rise of Digitoll Hits Nor...:

I'm thinking about getting this. I enjoyed the first but it was too much of a grindfest for every new dungeon, so I skipped the 2nd thinking it'd be the same. I guess I'll see how the demo goes first.



nf_2 commented on The Denpa Men 3: The Rise of Digitoll Is Sprea...:

I played the first one but I found it to require too much grinding, and I recall hearing that the sequel was harder, which turned me off. It's a fun, quirky game, but not fantastic. This one looks like it could be better suited for more casual, less grindy, play. :P



nf_2 commented on Matters of Import: Prepare To Die In Fire Embl...:

Of all the games that I want on the eShop, the Fire Emblem series (especially this one) is basically my list. I've considered trying to learn Japanese just to play these (and some other Japan exclusives).



nf_2 commented on Conception II Demo Bringing the Love to 3DS on...:

I'll check the demo out for sure, but I'm not sure I'll end up picking this up. However, Atlus always deserves my attention so who knows. Given money issues, probably not but there's always a chance.



nf_2 commented on Video: The Top 20 Wii U Games So Far - Part One:

I honestly don't agree that there are 20 Wii U games worth owning right now, unless it your only gaming system. Including the eShop, you can make an argument for more, but still a lot of these games are old ports from the 360/PS3 or just aren't that good. I've enjoyed my Wii U so far, and it's a very nice system, but it's greatly lacking in software. This year will change that though, barring setbacks to Smash and X.



nf_2 commented on New and Sealed Xenoblade Chronicles Copies Ava...:

Definitely worth it. I've seen a few copies every now and then and I've considered picking them up to sell online, but I don't want to be one of those people who poach games away from people who actually want them.

$63 is fair for this game considering you should get at least 63 hours in the game (if you're rushing), and each hour is just glorious.



nf_2 commented on Review: CastleStorm (Wii U eShop):

"Fortunately, the camera can be zoomed in and out and the entire stage can be viewed at any time, which and eventually you can adapt."

I might just not be reading this correctly, but it seems like there's something wrong with this sentence (3rd paragraph).

This review otherwise has convinced me to pick this up. I'm always cautious with e-shop titles, but this one has been on my radar for a while. I'm glad people are enjoying it, and once I get caught up on my catalog some I will be enjoying it as well. :)



nf_2 commented on Monolith Soft Lists "Urgent" Job Postings, Inc...:

@Tsuzura That's the first thing I thought of. It seems like it's a little late in the game to be adding anything more substantial like online play. However, something similar to Monster Hunter online where you just get to fight some harder/bigger monsters would be pretty easy I would think. Drop in play seems like a long shot, but would certainly be epic (not that I have anyone to play with :( )



nf_2 commented on Nintendo Acknowledges Network Issues and Sugge...:

This should teach Nintendo to at least preload games on systems instead of giving download codes for them. Or they could do like Amazon does and get extra service capacity, rent it out year round and then use it for themselves during the holidays when they expect higher traffic.

I guess I should mention miiverse has been working for me basically all day but nothing else has been. I managed to get on the eshop for a couple seconds before getting booted.
