Nice to see so much love for the 3DS here. It is, without a doubt, my all-time favorite handheld, and, as others have said, comes close to rivaling the SNES as one of its best gaming machines overall.

I just hope the next Nintendo machine is similarly blessed with exquisite JRPG love.

Pokémon Shuffle can go burn in a fire somewhere. That game seems to be freemium at its absolute worst. It'll ruin Nintendo if they let it.

Rusty and Sub Wars are the way to go with future F2P Nintendo games.



Ralizah commented on Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Edition Coming T...:

I loved Puzzle Quest, so I'm definitely receptive to Match-3 gameplay as long as it is done in an interesting manner. The fact that they're including both versions of the game in the package, and that Z adds more RPG elements makes me feel good about this. I'll probably pick this up.

Sure, once you know what you're doing. The first several encounters suck, though. You blow all your ammo the first time trying to blow up all the walls, have to grind for ammo afterward, and eventually discover they put in extra destructible walls to confuse you.

The hardest boss in MM2 is definitely that dragon, though. Small platforms, and the attacks send you hurtling right over the side. I can do no death runs of the game now on Hard Mode, but that dragon was the bane of my existence for a long time.

Mega Man 2 has some tricky bosses (looking at you, boss that requires shooting crash bombs with 100% accuracy while you're bombarded by enemy fire every other second), but I've never seen anyone struggle with alien wily before. It's a boss with a remarkably simple pattern. The hardest part of the fight is trying to figure out what hurts it.



Ralizah commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2015:

MM3D, with Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. as a close second. Both games look great, and this will be my first chance to play MM, just as the OoT3D was my first time playing OoT.



Ralizah commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2015:

Legend of Zelda

Unsure about Yoshi's Wooly World, and not terribly interested in Devil's Third or Kirby/Mario Party/Space Adventure.

May or may not be excited for Mario Maker, depending upon the hardiness of the level creation and sharing tools.

Star Fox's control scheme sounds... different, so I'll wait for more details on that as well.



Ralizah commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

Mario Kart 7, although DS is a close second. MK8 is probably my favorite console one. Least favorite is probably Mario Kart Wii.

MK8 has two flaws that keep it from being the best, for me. First, the broken battle mode. Second, the reintroduction of coins as an item.



Ralizah commented on Shantae And The Pirate's Curse All Set For Fes...:

Might be tempted to pick this up if I can get a discount for already owning it on 3DS. I highly recommend it to anyone who hasn't tried it. Best Metroid-style game I've played in years, and easily the best of the Shantae games.
