Phle commented on Apple Just Announced Its Own Wii, Almost A Dec...:

That's what I thought when I saw Apple's presentation yesterday.

But I also thought, sadly for Nintendo, Apple TV seems like the thing that could make home gaming consoles history. And then I thought "I really want an Apple TV".

In my opinion Nintendo should aim for partnership with Apple. Hate me as much as you like, Apple is a real threat for Nintendo and other gaming console companies like Sony.



Phle commented on Potential Massacre Averted At Pokémon World C...:

@Yorumi First, I didn't say all weapons should be illegal. Non-lethal weapons would be fine with restrictions to use them.
Secondly, I agree that removing all guns from the earths surface would be impossible. Peoples attitude is what could make a huge change. It's way to accepted to own a gun, at least in some countries.

Drugs are entirely different from guns.
Drugs are something a person can get something from (feelings / emotions / escape from the daily life), even if that person was the last living thing on earth. Guns don't give you anything. Some people feel a fake "I'm safe because I have this gun", but in reality it's not true, unless you're a police officer or something. If you where the last living thing on earth, a gun would be completely useless.

And at last: @JakeOfAllTrades You think you can fight the army with your gun?!
Sorry this is just...
I don't even...



Phle commented on Potential Massacre Averted At Pokémon World C...:

@Yorumi well, the problem is that people are allowed to own guns in the USA. As long as there are guns, there will be shooting. One building that isn't allowing guns will not change anything. We need countries without guns. Really, if no one had a gun, no one would be shooting.



Phle commented on Updated 'Roadmap' Infographic Shows Nintendo's...:

There are several games I'm looking forward too. I also have many games at the moment that I haven't finished, both on the Wii U and the 3DS. I don't see why I should complain. Only thing: Fatal Frame will be eShop only!?



Phle commented on Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer and amiib...:

I like the amiibo cards idea. I don't like how amiibo takes up so much space. But it kind of sucks that you have to buy six random cards at once, that way you'll probably end up with either none of the ones you want or a huge collection that contains several of the same cards and only a few of the ones you like.



Phle commented on New Style Boutique 2 Will Strut Its Stuff in E...:

I might get this. The amiibo support is too limited though. They should support at least 12, considering how many they have released and that most people aren't likely to have the full collection. Out of the four supported ones, I only have Peach.



Phle commented on Nintendo President Satoru Iwata Passes Away Ag...:

I just found out today, I have been on summer vacation without internet. These news really hurt, I'm shocked. I will miss Satoru Iwata, he was an amazing man and I loved seeing him in Nintendo Directs.

Like @-KwB- said:
No Nintendo Direct will be the same without the "Directeaerely " !



Phle commented on Nintendo Is A Slave To Its Past Success, Says...:

Well, I haven't been a Nintendo fan for very long, and I'm not a huge fan, they sometimes annoy me. I'm not a Mario fan. I never played Nintendo games when I was a kid, because I wasn't allowed to play games and bought my first game (Pokémon Diamond) when I was 20. I got more into gaming when I met my BF a few years later. Anyway. Nintendo managed to reach me with Pokémon games, because I've always been a huge fan of the TV series.

Nintendo will not reach many customers the way they reached me. They need games that can stand side-by-side with the new Assassin's Creed and make 50% of the people walking by to check out their game before they check out the new Assassin's Creed game. They need to realise that most gamers are adults.



Phle commented on Satoru Iwata Didn't Apologise For Nintendo's E...:

I really feel like he shouldn't apologise for Nintendo's digital event, if fans aren't satisfied then that's sad, but Nintendo probably did their best.

I feel like they have a lot of "secrets" going on right now, like the Nintendo NX and new Nintendo games coming to mobile devices. They are changing, but they don't want other companies know what they are planning, at least not the details, until the time is right. It's a difficult situation, with many thing to take in to consideration.

My main complaint is that Nintendo should have had Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden and Devil's Third in their digital event. They seriously need to focus less on "young kinds might be watching" and more on "adult fans would really like this". They are hurting themselves too much over parenting kids, without getting any profit from it.



Phle commented on Nintendo's E3 'Roadmap' Infographic Shows Off ...:

I'm interested in:
Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer
The Legend of Zelda Tri Force Heroes
Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon
Xenoblade Chronicles X
Hyrule Warriors Legends
Zelda Wii U
Fire Emblem Fates

Maybe also:
Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival
Yo-Kai Watch
Mario Maker
Metroid Prime Federation Force

I feel like 3DS got some pretty good games coming, but the Wii U seems to be slightly left behind.



Phle commented on Reggie Has Been Pushing For Binding Of Isaac T...:

Sad it's took so long for this game to make it to 3DS and Wii U. This game has been really popular, but I feel like it's on it's way down now, everyone that was interested has already played it...

My BF was into playing it about a year ago or maybe a bit more. He also watched YouTube videos of others playing it.

I'm not sure if I like it. At first I hated it, but not anymore. I've been forced to watch (when my BF watch this all day, the only way of spending time with him is watching it with him) a lot of YouTube videos of gamers playing this game. So I see that this game could have been a big deal for the 3DS and the Wii U if it only came a bit sooner...



Phle commented on ​Skylanders SuperChargers Melds Mario Kart, ...:

"Each game is given an epic adventure". That's a really bold statement. I have only played the first Skylanders game for 3DS, it's a pretty good game as long as you have every type of figurine. The only thing it lacks, sadly for Activision is the story! The story is sad and dull. It's probably the main reason I never got any of the next games.

Guess the kids like the toys though. I just found them annoying.

I think it's almost sad that they make a Wii version. I mean Wii was already replaced with the Wii U by Nintendo when they released the first Skylanders game. Or am I wrong?



Phle commented on Video: The World is a Better Place Thanks to T...:

I love these (^_^) Funny commercials are too rare.

Wonder why commercials in my country always are so annoying that I get really angry and can't even force myself to watch.

I either turn the sound off and play Pokémon Shuffle or leave the living room with plans to come back when it's over. Sometimes I forget to continue watching whatever I was watching because they cut to commercials and I started doing something else and in the end I never returned to the TV.

It gets worse every year. When I was a kid, I remember they sent some really funny ones. I even felt like getting things I had seen in commercials before. Now it's like: Oh that's the product from that horrible commercial with that woman I hate. I'm never buying this ever, I don't even want it for free.



Phle commented on Pokémon Shuffle Hits Four Million Downloads a...:

I got a Mega Lucario stone today -super happy- Even my BF plays Pokémon Shuffle every day. I don't spend money on it though, neither does my BF. But Nintendo might still benefit from Pokémon Shuffle. It makes 3DS owners pick up their 3DS more often, which is a good thing. I spend money on other games and I've even bought quite a few background themes.



Phle commented on Talking Point: Mario Maker Can Be A Game Chang...:

I've got to say, I'm not a Mario fan, mainly because I don't like platformers (I like Mario Kart). But even I think Mario Maker looks pretty interesting, I might even buy it. If Nintendo plays it right, it can be huge. In my opinion they should let people bring Mario Maker to YouTube, but I see that might be unlikely.



Phle commented on Splatoon Creation Was Inspired by Rare's Perfe...:

I've never played Perfect Dark, so I can't say I do.

But I really like how Splatoon looks FUN. I mean really fun, I've never seen a shooter that I looked fun the way Splatoon does. I already pre-ordered the game with the squid Amiibo (^_^) I'm probably going to get the two other Splatoon Amiibos as well.



Phle commented on Zelda Lookalike Oceanhorn: Monster Of Uncharte...:

This game is probably a good game.

What I dislike is the creators lack of imagination to make their own monsters, their own boat, their own way of getting random items and not just take the pots and the grass chopping from Zelda. There is nothing wrong with wanting to create a game with a Zelda like type of gameplay, but that doesn't mean you should take designs from an already existing game.

Look at Darksiders, they made a game with a Zelda like gameplay. But they made their own game. That's what other developers should do when they think: "Wind Waker is great, I want to make a game like that". They should create their own game, not Wind Waker with modified story and characters.

I would have been embarrassed if I made a game like this and people asked how I came up with all the amazing ideas and for every idea I had to answer: "I got it from a Zelda game I once played..."



Phle commented on Nintendo’s Free-To-Play Experiment Pokémon ...:

Well, both me and my BF have been playing Pokémon Shuffle. It's great when you watch TV and they switch to commercials. Just turn off the sound on the TV and play Pokémon Shuffle until the commercials are over. By the next commercial break you are likely to have generated a new heart too (^_^) I hate ads and commercials.



Phle commented on Guide: Everything We Know So Far About Nintend...:

Not sure how I feel about this.

They better mean iPhone and iPad when they say Smart Devices. I'm not buying an Android or a Windows device.

Still, this might be just what Nintendo needs to do in order to keep their spot in the gaming world. Everyone else seems to be moving on to tablets and mobile devices for handheld gaming. A better account system would do them good.



Phle commented on Swedish Newspaper Questions The European Relea...:

This game doesn't bother me, and I'm a woman. That said I haven't played the game myself, only seen trailers and such.

It's like @Pokefanmum82 said: It's just a game.

Some women tends to overreact on how fictional female characters are designed. Either they made them too thin (anorexic looking and tall), they are too well shaped (big boobs and round hips), too perfect or too young. What they mean to say is: they want chubby, tiny chested, ugly ladies in their mid 30's everywhere. I hope that never happens.



Phle commented on The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Speedrun ...:

Looks like he has done this a lot of times. Although he is using glitches to get fast through the game, he seems pretty skilled. I'm guessing all it takes to end up being too slow is one little mistake.

@Espy I see your point, but wouldn't an Ocarina of Time speedrun without using glitches take too long for anyone to watch?
