Nibelilt commented on Video: Check Out The Mario Kart 8 Visual Upgra...:

@AshFoxX @Joshers744 @Imagine23 Yep! I was actually hoping a while ago that they'd remake Royal Raceway just so that I could visit the castle on that track again. :P That was actually the most memorable thing in the game to me, I loved how they added that in.

But wow, those graphics... I never noticed how beautiful they really looked... It's actually giving me chills. I've gotta spend some time playing MK7 again to hype up for this.



Nibelilt commented on Twitch Claims Victory in Pokémon Crystal:

I was watching the stream when they were facing Red! The hype was unreal! :D

Also, I heard they're trying to beat the E4 again to get Red to re spawn so that they can face him again for the heck of it. :P

I'm glad that the streamer is waiting to start Gen III. I warmed up to Gen II after more lore was established but I was burned out on the original so I was just bored at the start, only checking every couple of days.



Nibelilt commented on Rumour: Next Skylanders Title Will Feature Veh...:

For all we know though these vehicles could just be in one or two levels. They did that in the last games several times(the most notable case was Secret Vault of Secrets, one of the earlier levels of Giants).

I really hope they don't make this a Mario Kart type game. It'd be WAY too gimmicky and I just feel like it wouldn't fit that well. I've seen people suggest these are just used kind of like some battletanks to drive around the worlds which is how I would like to see vehicles implimented if they actually add them in- that would also help to pave the way for more open worlds (vehicles would make it easier to navigate) which is something I'd really like to see in this series because it would help it become less samey to replay the same levels with new toys if we had more varying paths and open-ended levels.

By the way, there are other new things related to this game that we know about.



Nibelilt commented on Review: Spot the Differences! (3DS eShop):

I would have bought this if it were cheaper, because I like spot-the-difference games, but it doesn't sound like it's worth the money when I could put that towards other stuff. That's too bad.



Nibelilt commented on A Sonic Boom Game is Dashing Towards Wii U and...:

The more I look into this, the more it's growing on me. I still don't really have anything to say about the cartoon, even after watching the trailer(it looks kind of average but not terrible but I like Sonic so I might enjoy it just for that :P). The game itself, I think, looks really promising. It's nice to finally see another Sonic game where you can play as other characters, and I've heard about the talent behind Big Red Button. I'm excited. I'd like to see more of this soon.

I still stink Sonic's design looks stupid, though(not just as a redesign- if this were some new character or something I'd be thinking the same thing), just because he has so many bandages... You can barely notice them on Amy and on their shoes you can kinda just ignore them, but they really overdid it on Sonic- he has bandages on his gloves...



Nibelilt commented on Super-Rare Nintendo World Championship Cartrid...:

"The cart plays just fine and may some day be worth much more if someone decides to investigate a forensics lab's involvement to see if they can determine the official number by running tests on the cart."

... Really?



Nibelilt commented on Book Focused on EarthBound's Development and L...:

I'm trying not to assume anything since we don't know why Nintendo turned it down, but still... It always disappoints me when companies are strict about this kind of thing, especially on older games where it shouldn't be a big issue. I love hearing about game development and I wish companies could be a little more open about it and give us glimpses of their design decisions.



Nibelilt commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

I'm still playing Skylanders. :P It's not even me actively playing any more, really, just grinding up all my characters to Level 20 and finishing all their Quests and stuff(which is intensely monotonous).

Besides that, I don't think I'm playing anything else? I'm still going through Spyro 3 so there's that but I don't feel like picking it up again, actually. I think I'd just like to work on speedrunning some game soon, because lately I've felt more like dedicating some time to another game, to help distract me from the insane amount of time I've played Skylanders(and add a little balance).



Nibelilt commented on Review: Disney Frozen: Olaf's Quest (3DS):

Huh, I expected this to be terrible for some reason. A lot of games seem to be surprisingly "meh" lately, in my opinion.

I'm seeing the movie on Wednesday, I'm neutral on Olaf. Kind of annoying from what I've seen so far, but I thought the same about Vanellope before seeing WIR, so yeah.



Nibelilt commented on 3DS Region-Free Hack is Hacked by Hackers:

So, I skimmed through that 'temp topic. I'm not totally clear on this, but- the Gateway makers put some code-check thing in in to stop other flashcart makers from copying/modifying/etc. (and subsequently profiting from) their pirating software, if I've got this right...?



Nibelilt commented on Nintendo World Championships Trophy Up for Auc...:

Nah... I wouldn't care too much unless it was my own trophy with my own name. It's a cool artefact but just because it's from the NWC, nothing else. There's plenty of stuff I would enjoy more which I could get from that $2000.

Maybe I would be more excited if it looked cooler lol.



Nibelilt commented on Weirdness: Try Not To Squirm As This Doomed Mi...:

Well I don't understand the need for a boyfriend or girlfriend so many people my age seem to be obsessed with but it leads to plenty of hilarious stuff... Like this...

I'm creeped out by how people could just be this stupid but I'm also laughing hard at the same time... I just hope it was brilliant trolling or I have lost a bit more faith for us... :|

Also it reminds me of when I used to play Club Penguin and I would see people acting like they were gfs/bfs :U



Nibelilt commented on Tantalus Media Seeking Staff With Wii U Experi...:

It doesn't really have anything to do with the current conversation but I heard the name "Tantalus Media" and thought it sounded familiar. Then I remembered that they made the DS version of Spyro: Dawn of The Dragon.




Nibelilt commented on Site News: How was 2013 for Nintendo Life?:

Happy new year guys. :) My favourite memory this (err... last) year was going on the chat stream at E3. It's great to see the site grow, I noticed it's been more active this year. Thanks to all the staff for all your hard work on NL- I think it's really admirable.



Nibelilt commented on Feature: Time to Vote For Your Game of the Yea...:

Animal Crossing: New Leaf FTW

Contrary to everyone else, I didn't have trouble choosing any of them this year. It's not that there were a lot of bad games and only one or two standouts but my favourites and the games I thought were generally best for each category were all pretty clear.
For me there were lots of good/great games this year but only a few actually got me deeply immersed, and I think the games that did immerse me deserve it more. I played Animal Crossing for a couple hundred hours already, and that's already in my most played 3DS games list. And I had a blast the whole time.

Also, it just amuses me how Skylanders: Swap Force is a 3DS candidate. It makes sense because the console version is also a choice- and it's a fairly big title- but it's just not very good and probably won't get many votes, especially compared to the truly great games the console got this year.



Nibelilt commented on Rumour: Minecraft Is Already In Development Fo...:

Well, for me it would just be a downgrade from the PC version(I never play the game without a HD shaders mod any more :P), but I imagine that something like using the GamePad for the inventory screen would be fantastic(especially in Creative Mode). It'd essentially let you use all your items as if they were all in your item slots.

I'd like to see it, even though I prefer the PC version, but I'm not holding my breath since I don't trust the source.



Nibelilt commented on Exclusive: Mutant Mudds Deluxe Content Coming ...:

This is awesome! It's a shame that we never got Deluxe, but it's great to see that the Ghost Levels are coming to the 3DS. Still want to replay this game, so I think when the update comes around I'll start a new game again. Still love it, one of my favourite eShop games. It's good to see that it's still being supported.



Nibelilt commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Resilience Against W...:

@Slapshot Nah, that's not what I meant but more of an it would be great for devs. Then again, a lot of important devs seem to not care about Nintendo anyway, so ehhh. Plus, we've had gimmicks on Ninty consoles for the last two gens, and I think it would just be nice to have a little break from that, and give devs "breathing room" to really utilize those gimmicks on another console. Maybe it's just wishful thinking. :P



Nibelilt commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Resilience Against W...:

Excellent article. Thank you for writing this.

I agree with @Slapshot, @DarkwingLz and @Blastoise-san's posts.

I personally wish that Nintendo would put some more focus on reaching the standards of "next-gen": basically, more power and better online. I can live with it but it still baffles me how they are running their online services like the Miiverse- they took a step in the right direction when originally implementing it, but the way it's going to be integrated into the 3DS isn't moving forward very much on that front. I really think that the 3DS needs a better online service, especially since Swapnote is gone now. I also think that they should expand the eShop to include proper Club Nintendo integration.
Also, I don't want their next console to have a "gimmick" like the Wiimote and GamePad. I think that they should, instead, let those carry into the next gen (?) but focus on making a more powerful machine instead. It obviously wouldn't match the PS5 and XBox Whatever, I just think that they don't need another gimmick, and that extra power would be of far better benefit. I love the GamePad, but I feel like it just held back the Wii U. Then again, the 3D for th 3DS had a similar vibe. Still. (Edit: maybe they could go with an Oculous Rift esque gimmick as someone suggested earlier, I think that would be entertaining and attract more people)

Also, I think @Zael is kind of right about Nintendo's reliance on Mario lately. It doesn't seem to be attracting that many from the casual crowd at the moment, and I think even us Nintendo fans can agree it'd be nice to see him get a little break. Maybe it's just my imagination. Things with that seem as though they'll settle a bit after this year, though, thankfully.



Nibelilt commented on Review: Skylanders SWAP Force (3DS):

@Captain_Gonru Absolutely nothing, actually. Load them in- and, done. All you'd need to do is go to the store with your 3DS, the game, and the Portal of Power. You can level your toys up, and then update your Spyro with his levelled-up stats, but the game isn't very fun to do that anyway, IMO. (For the record, I really don't advocate doing this.)

I agree a lot with this review. I'm really disappointed in this game, still, though. The biggest problem with this game(besides the many glitches I've run into): it's simply no fun to replay, due to a combination of the factors the review mentions, and in Skylanders- where the content mostly comes from replaying the game with new characters- that's a big issue. I would say avoid it until it at least goes on sale.

Also, I thought I would bring up that I loathed the slow pace of the game. It has a very "laggy" tempo to the level design, I think(one of the biggest points that makes it boring to replay). For instance, the pointless dialogue from NPCs during the level, the lock puzzles... They don't really feel like they add to the gameplay, just pad it out. Makes it boring.

I think n-Space tried WAAAAAYYYYY too hard to emulate aspects of the console version, and build a game similar to that. But they fail to realise the 3DS can't handle that. And IMO, the way it came out, it just feels half-baked and not very good.

I'm a Skylanders nut, but I won't return to it any time soon. The main game (with the starter pack) will probably last a few hours, I think you can get about 20 hours out of it if you have all the Skylanders needed for it and go for 100%. Don't recommend picking this one up unless it becomes super cheap soon, or if you're already a fan and want another way to level up your Skylanders than plain grinding(in which case, I would still advise you wait for it to drop in price).



Nibelilt commented on Poll: As the PS4 Arrives, What Do You Think of...:

I'm just tired of seeing all the arguing about it, honestly. Wether the Wii U is "next gen" and how the hardware is and what's up with the sales. I understand why(and I agree with certain points and ideas regarding it), but sometimes I wonder what happened with just wanting to play games. I'm just seeing it everywhere lately.

Sigh. Anyway, my plan this gen is to use my 3DS and PC as my main consoles. I haven't used my Wii U much lately, tbh. I think it will pick up soon like my 3DS did, but meh... I'm just not very enthusiastic for this gen. Like, at all, outside of the 3DS, and somewhat the PC, I honestly don't care very much for anything lately. So many little reasons as to why. It's strange because so many games are delivering, but I think I'm just getting tired of this "NEXT GEN HYPE" right now.
I'm going to pick up a Vita, though- but that's because I need to upgrade from my awful PSP1000 (and want to play LBPVita!) more than a getting-into-that-section-of-the-next-gen kind of thing.



Nibelilt commented on Feature: A Supersonic History of Sonic Cartoons:

I watched a bit of each of them, but only the movie and SatAM held my interest. Though, those two WERE awesome. I don't even like Sonic a ton(just casually following), but I love 'em both.
I think AoSTH gets too much flak sometimes, but I can also see why some people dislike it.

As for Underground and X... Ugh! I just couldn't go past an episode of either. I don't know... I just found Sonic so... annoying in those shows!
