nintendouken commented on Talking Point: Deep Breaths Are Needed as High...:

Not going to hold my breath, but even if the direct tackles just one of these I'll be absolutely stoked:

  • Any further Zelda U trailers/footage/details/dates
  • Twilight Princess HD confirmation and announcement trailer
  • Super Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot results

Not really fussed about anything Star Fox Zero or Miitomo related at this point...



nintendouken commented on Feature: Why We're Still Playing... Pokémon G...:

@BulbasaurusRex Thanks, and a great point about the held items - there was a lot that these games introduced (I've cheekily given it a mention)!

As mentioned, as great as HG & SS are, they just don't replicate the magic that the originals do for me (I've recently played through both). And you must've been fortunate, my dial-up was awful back then and I just didn't have the knowhow about the confines of the internet as a kid!

  • Bowser Jr's Revenge: 90E4-0000-009C-7475 (Medium)
  • Sonic's Speedway: CB02-0000-00A0-B98D (Easy)
  • DK's Vine Voyage: 1C25-0000-00A6-2732 (Hard)
  • Squid Wars: 0708-0000-00A8-537A (Medium/Hard)

Try finishing each course with the intended character for an extra challenge!



nintendouken commented on Feature: A Pokémon Retrospective: Generation ...:

I've always said it - Gen II is hands down the BEST generation to date. It had everything: good Pokemon design, a great story, both Johto and Kanto regions to explore, a first for animated sprites and new Pokemon types, a day and night feature, a mobile phone, and above all else kept its core mechanics fun and challenging without becoming too complex and overwhelming.

I'm all for competitive online battling and all (I've played every gen to date), but it's sad to know that it's unlikely that any upcoming handheld Pokemon game will be overshadowed by its competitive online meta-game.



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

Awesome news. With Ryu out of the equation (thank you Nintendo, btw), Knuckles and Bomberman are the other two of my three most-wanted, but I guess that's pushing it in terms of third-party characters. I'm grateful as is with Ryu!

If we're talking Nintendo specifically, I believe King K. Rool is an addition to the roster that logically fits for a multitude of reasons. I'd love to see characters representing a wider variety of franchises too, such as Black Shadow/Blood Falcon from F-Zero - or bring back Wolf from Starfox but with a completely revised moveset. Sceptile would also work as it bridges the gap between Charizard and Greninja due to being a third-gen grass starter, but we already have too many Pokés!



nintendouken commented on Reaction: Nintendo's E3 Digital Event Brought ...:

While it's awesome we get frequent Directs from Nintendo, it can lead to some reverse effects such as Nintendo's E3 presentation feeling somewhat scarce.

What's more, the leaks over the past week haven't helped either. If Hyrule Warriors Legends wasn't leaked, and if the Smash Bros. direct was some how integrated within the E3 presentation instead of last Sunday (and wasn't leaked too!), they could've yielded a completely different overall reaction.

Personally, Star Fox Zero, Super Mario Maker, and Mario Tennis Ultra Smash were the only interesting things for me (Xenoblade Chronicles X too but we've already heard a lot about it). Otherwise, it certainly does feel like the year of the spin-off.

On the other hand, we still have great content that's just arrived (and upcoming) in Smash, as well as Zelda U! It's not all bad when you think about everything that's available and forthcoming on the Wii U and 3DS...



nintendouken commented on Weirdness: Street Fighter's Ryu is Now Being R...:

YES!! PLEASE!! I've been quite vocal about Ryu as a third party character, alongside Bomberman and Knuckles.

Obviously, Nintendo characters should take priority, but if third parties are being considered, you need the icon of fighting games! Especially as Mega Man (another Capcom mascot) is already in the game...

And it's an easy and effective move-set!

B = Hadouken
Side B = Hurricane Kick
Up B = Shoryuken
Down B = Counter/Throw
Final Smash = Super/Mega Hadouken



nintendouken commented on Empty Slots on Super Smash Bros. Site Suggests...:

@RaiRiggs Understood, but surely the slots would be removed if there's no need for them? Whether the panels mean anything or not, it's also worth mentioning that creating one fighter based off the entire fan-base's requests seems farfetched, so accommodating more than one suggestion is a little more probable. Ah well, it's been a helluva day!



nintendouken commented on Empty Slots on Super Smash Bros. Site Suggests...:

@RaiRiggs If you look via desktop/laptop, the square slots can clearly be seen (it's not just empty space). However, as mentioned, this could simply be to preserve the rule of having nine slots per carousel slider. By no means is it concrete evidence for new characters, but it's not impossible that there could be more than one character from the Fighter Ballot. It's all speculation!



nintendouken commented on Empty Slots on Super Smash Bros. Site Suggests...:

@Jayvir Very true, but if all these slots are indeed meant for more than one new character, then perhaps one of these third-party characters could be more of a possibility! But yes, if there's only one allocation, it should be dedicated to a well-established Nintendo character.



nintendouken commented on Mysterious Murasame Castle's Takamaru Was Cons...:

Knuckles, Bomberman, or Ryu, anyone? Their move-sets are easily imaginable!

Or if Nintendo-based only, what about another final evolution starter from Pokemon to bridge the gap between 1st and 6th gen? Someone like Sceptile - it would make sense too with the recent ORAS games, as well as it completing the three types of starter Pokemon!



nintendouken commented on Feature: Tales From the Front Line of amiibo C...:

I'm lucky that most of the amiibo I own weren't rare at the time of purchase (and pretty much still aren't), although I was relieved to see Sonic arrive in the post this Friday just gone due to the demand his wave received. I was also lucky with Bowser, as I was coincidentally in the US during the snowstorm and thought I'd pop over to Toys R Us to see what they had. I'm now crossing my fingers that Charizard arrives safe and sound!



nintendouken commented on Nintendo Fan Creates a Mewtwo 'amiibo' That Wo...:

@MadAdam81 That's what I initially thought, until I bought a couple of amiibo from the US. Their boxes don't contain the characters' series number, nor the 'Super Smash Bros. Collection' line. All they contain are the character's name and '6+'. Definitely prefer the UK boxes. This creator must've copied the US box's template.
