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?



Phle commented on Pokémon Shuffle Updated Once Again, Adds a Sp...:

I got one (^_^)
Why is Kyogre so much more powerful than Mew?

This game seems to have it's own stats for each Pokémon and totally ignore the National Pokédex in terms of power, ability and sometimes type (I realise that they merge a Pokémon's types into one, but sometimes I disagree about their choice among the two types. Like Marill is usually water and fairy, I would say it's main type is water, but in Pokémon Shuffle they have chosen fairy).



Phle commented on These 3D Printed New Nintendo 3DS Cover Plates...:

This almost makes me want a regular sized New 3DS. I've already got the New 3DS XL though, so I'll probably won't be getting it. But these are really nice, Nintendo could have done something like this themselves :)



Phle commented on Full Details Emerge on Shin Megami Tensei: Dev...:

Not sure about this. SMT: Devil Survivor Overclocked looked so interesting, but I still haven't finished it. The fights are so boring that I can't get through them without falling asleep... The story seems nice, but that fights are everlasting and often has to be repeated in order to level enough to progress the story...



Phle commented on Nintendo Confirms Wil Wheaton as Voice Actor f...:

I must say, I'm getting this game. My decision is not based on the voice actors, but rather the fact that I think I will enjoy this game, as I have already enjoyed the Demo.

Besides, Will Wheaton is unlikely to be able to express personal opinions though this game. He's just one of the voice actors.



Phle commented on Accessory Review: WaterField New Nintendo 3DS ...:

I own both the New Nintendo 3DS XL Suede Jacket also known as the "Regular Nintendo 3DS XL Suede Jacket" and the New Nintendo 3DS XL CitySlicker Case also known as the "Regular Nintendo 3DS XL CitySlicker Case", as neither of them has been modified for the New XL.

They said they didn't need to modify it in order for the New 3DS XL to fit perfectly and that's true for the New Nintendo 3DS XL CitySlicker Case.

However the New Nintendo 3DS XL Suede Jacket is slightly short on the New 3DS XL and they could have added a 5mm length to make it a proper fit for the New 3DS XL. I recently bought a New Nintendo 3DS XL Suede Jacket for my boyfriend and can confirm that it haven't been changed as I already own a Nintendo 3DS XL Suede Jacket and they are the same when compared. I also asked about this when I ordered it.

Even so, I highly recommend both cases. The New Nintendo 3DS XL CitySlicker Case has one thing worth mentioning: I tend to get less StreetPass when I use this case.

Also: The New 3DS XL will NOT slide out the New Nintendo 3DS XL Suede Jacket, it's actually pretty tight and you have to pull carefully to get the New 3DS XL out. It's a very useful case if you would like to keep your New 3DS XL as portable as possible. The pocket is perfect for a slim game card holder that holds 1-3 games.



Phle commented on Soapbox: Portable Gaming Forges a Special Rela...:

My first gaming console was a DS Lite. I liked it a lot, played so many games on it. However the 3DS was the first console to steal my heart. I just got a New 3DS XL, Majoras Mask Edition, my third 3DS in total. The first one was a pretty random buy. I heard the reviews and thought I didn't need one, but got one as a comfort after a having an unusual hard day. That was in October 2011. Almost every day since then I've been playing on my 3DS before I go to sleep. I always bring it with me. I have a scary amount of the 3DS library, most of them in boxed copies. I got my sister a 3DS XL a few years ago and yesterday I gave my boyfriend a New 3DS XL as a Valentines Day gift. I can only hope he'll like it as much as I do.



Phle commented on Guide: How to Complete a System Transfer from ...:

@ThomasBW84 I'm getting more and more confused as I read more about this as people keeps giving away different information.

I'm already using a 32g Micro SD card with my old 3DS. I'm getting the Majora's Mask Limited edition that comes with the game pre-installed. Now, if I do the system transfer and select "No" when when asked if I'm using an SD card with my system (as I already use a Micro SD card with an adapter), will I be able to redownload Majora's Mask after the system transfer is complete?

Is the Animal Crossing saving data issue true? That you have to delete the game from your console and create a unique save data backup (that from what I hear can't be made in any other way, as far as I know it only goes for Animal Crossing and Pokémon) before you transfer the games to your new console, if you are going to use Wireless Transfer (Limited Data) and maybe other Transfer methods as well? I'm not too concerned if I can put my current Micro SD card in my New 3DS, but I know others wonders about this as well...



Phle commented on Video: New Nintendo 3DS XL Commercials Show Of...:

Nintendo should do TV commercials. And other commercials.

I mean, I have never seen a Nintendo commercial other than the ones I see here, watching the official Nintendo YouTube channel, or visiting their official pages.

I even recently learned that Nintendo has this cool guide booklet featuring all their best Wii U and 3DS games. I learned it by answering a quiz from Nintendo and one of the questions was about some of the pages in that book. I had to use Google to find the PDF version. It was great! So sad you can't see it in stores, it was obviously meant to be a free guide to what games you should get for your Nintendo console. No one looks for something like that on Google.
