RadioShadow commented on Editorial: It's Not Fun to Criticise Nintendo ...:

I take any review with a pinch of salt, inlcuding the ones from NintendoLife. Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash does lack content (more upset they didn't reuse the mode from the previous games), but the game-play is excellent. Far better than other Tennis games out there (well Sega All-Star Tennis was a decent attempt).

Honestly, the Wii U releases have not been that bad. Basing on what I have brought / being released in the UK:

  • Shantae & The Pirates Curse (2015 release for Europe)
  • Mario Party 10
  • AVGN Adventures (if they do release it in the EU eShop)
  • Yoshi's Woolly World
  • Splatoon
  • Legend of Kay HD
  • Super Mario Maker
  • Freedom Planet
  • Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash

That's 9 decent Wii U games I brought this year. SO my Wii U has been getting lots of use. As for the 3DS (not counting Sega M2 games), this is all I got:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes
  • Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai Remix
  • Box Boy!
  • Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy+

Planning to get Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson and Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer at a later date. Not really much on the 3DS I have really wanted.

I would have gotten Lego Jurrasic World for the Wii U, but they changed the released date for that version (not happy when I actually drove to the shop), so I brought the Xbox 360 version. They should have just released all versions on the SAME day.



RadioShadow commented on Site News: A Brief Update on Our Mario Tennis:...:

To be fair, the original N64 Mario Tennis had bare-bone features, but it was one of the best arcade Tennis games out there, which is the main reason why I'm getting this Wii U version, since Camalot have done an excellent job on their previous titles. Plus I liked the 3DS version and didn't really use the online features much.

Plus why does no-one complain about the lack of features in Mario Kart 8? You get Grand Prix, Time Trial and Battle Mode (which sucked in this version). That's pretty bare-bone to me. But what makes Mario Kart 8 so great is the course designs and the use of weapons. Plus it is a really good Kart racer.

So why the hate on Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash? True some like unique modes would have been nice, like Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed mission mode, but it's not like this game will be terrible like a lot of other Tennis video games out there.



RadioShadow commented on Yes, Fatal Frame's Lingerie Outfits Have Been ...:

Honestly, the Zelda and Zero Suit Samus costumes are way cooler than her skimpy one. So in this case, I'm not really that upset. Thinking about it, at least they put some effort into the changes, rather than just cover her up. We get the better end of the stick in my opinion..

Guess we will just have to stick with Shulk in his underwear!



RadioShadow commented on Review: 3D Sonic The Hedgehog 2 (3DS eShop):

"never feeling quite as tight as Mario and friends"
Ha ha ha ha... I stopped reading the review there. I never really liked the controls in "Super Mario World", but everyone and their mother likes the game, and it's Mario, so it's a classic. Basically, there is nothing wrong with them in Sonic 2, maybe controlling better than the fat plumber himself.

My only complaint is they could have added Hidden Palace Zone and Knuckles as extra features, which seems like a missed opportunity by M2.



RadioShadow commented on Video: Gain Some Insight Into How Retro Game M...:

@NauticalCrimes I will check out the video later, but you are right. The NES & Master System both produce PSG ( The Master System was capable of producing FM (, although you had to mod the system (buy adapter for Japanese system) and only certain games support it.



RadioShadow commented on NOA Announces Coming Restock of Old amiibo:

They seem to be getting their act together in the UK. Game UK in Peterborough, Cambs had Mr. Game Watch, Duck Hunt, the Miis, Rosalina, Little Mac, Palutena and Captain Falcon!

Wii Fit Trainer and Villager I have not seen anywhere.



RadioShadow commented on Shiny Founder Dave Perry Wasn't Keen On The N6...:

Poor cartridges get all the abuse. Like everything, there are cons and pros to them:

  • Faster loading times
  • Don't get scratched like CDs
  • Cost more to produce
  • Only hold 4 - 64MB compared to 700MB on CD

Sure cartridges put some developers off and would rather make their game for the PlayStation, but the PlayStation has a lot more terrible games than the Nintendo 64 because of this reason (and is the case today). The PlayStation can keep all those crappy Barbie games.



RadioShadow commented on Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Is Still Targeting a ...:

I honestly can't see it getting released this year, but if it does, then that's excellent!

The game is going to be awesome when it gets released! I just hope they consider a physical release option, like what happened with Might No. 9.



RadioShadow commented on The Retro VGS Wants To Revive The Glory Days O...:

Errr... Does someone want to tell Matt Bozon he could easily release Shantea and the Pirates Curse as a 3DS Cartridge or Wii U Disc? Basically, there is the option for a physical copy, and the fun option of collecting can still exist. Shame downloads are the way of the future.

I would be curious of the specifications for this machine. Very odd they are not mention in the kickstarter. Also, bring back the N-Labels. Don't use the Atria Jaguar's pointless cartridge handle.



RadioShadow commented on Movie Review: Pixels Proves Once Again That Vi...:

If I end up liking the movie, then I'm going to personally send a nuke to Nintendo Life's HQ.

Without spoiling myself, it sounds like people are not taking it for what it is. Talking about negatives is fine, but I'm sure the highlights are going to see Pac-Man, DK, a fricking Smurf etc. I seriously doubt this is going to be the worse film ever.

Plus I'm bored with these Adam Sandler jokes.



RadioShadow commented on Animal Crossing New 3DS Cover Plates Coming To...:

@Aromaiden I imported the Isabelle one from Japan. A cute cover plate it is. My brother keeps saying I can't use it, because I'm not a big fan of Animal Crossing, and not played the 3DS version she appears in.

At least Europe are finally getting them. That one with the animal faces on is cool.
