Some people obviously don't understand the time it would take to do even this... making custom art, a few of the 3D models, making all of the animations, applying the music and sfx, writing the code and compiling it and whatnot must take a long time.

I tried to make some test games on Unity (it's free), which was a really great idea, especially because I didn't know a thing about programming. :p



rayquaza_master commented on Satoru Iwata And DeNA CEO Isao Moriyasu Discus...:

I just looked at the Google play store and under 'most popular games' is the likes of 'crossy road' and 'fail hard'. Unfortunatly, it appears that more people are interested in quick 2 minute games with repeated retries like runner games, etc. I'm conflicted by this because it seems to me as though Nintendo has to either make decent paid smartphone games and go by without too much attention or make a lesser quality free game which draws in heaps of people. Only thing is that these lesser quality games feed off ad revenue or in-game microtransactions, but I highly doubt Nintendo would want their games to show up with advertisements for the xbox or something, so I am almost certain that if they take this approach it will be full of microtransactions aplenty.

On the bright side, DeNA currently has 2 games in the top 35 most popluar on the Google play store, so Nintendo should be off to a good start. I wonder if the games will come out under DeNA corp's account or if a new one will be made specifically for Nintendo?



rayquaza_master commented on Official Nintendo UK Store Sends New Nintendo ...:

I can only hope Mighty Ape does a better job of sending the correct plates, mine are due to arrive on the 13th.
@JellySplat Got to agree with you on that one, simplicity > detail in this case.

They probably should have easily distinguishable names as 'New Nintendo 3DS Cover Plates - Majoras Mask (White)' and 'New Nintendo 3DS Cover Plates - Majoras Mask (Black)' are just too similar. They could have just called the black ones 'Zelda triforce pattern' or something, they are actually probably related closer to A Link betwen worlds rather than Majora's Mask, I don't think the triforce is really mentioned in Majora's Mask (I could be wrong). What is it with Nintendo's naming department these days? :P



rayquaza_master commented on Accessory Review: Mugen Power's New Nintendo 3...:

Meh, I already have a nice USB battery called the Primate Armor which has 9000mA, two USB outputs, a built in LED torch and it is shock proof and water and dust resistant.
I want to get a nice big case which could carry my New3DS,some games, my battery, my phone, some earphones and a couple of charging cables which would be very nice.



rayquaza_master commented on Junichi Masuda Discusses Where Hoenn Got its N...:

@BlatantlyHeroic I remember playing through the battle frontier in Emerald as a 8 or 9 year old and I really REALLY loved it. I will always remeber how fun it was to go through the battle pyramid and rent pokemom at the battle factory. Maybe I didn't play through each facility long enough or something, because I never remembered it being especially hard.



rayquaza_master commented on Nintendo Stays in Profit With Wii U on Target,...:

I will buy the New 3ds when the regular black model comes out in New Zealand, it just looks so much nicer and fits better with a wider range of cover plates.
It will be interesting to get sales figures on amiibo (Haha figures), they seem to be doing really well by the sounds of it.



rayquaza_master commented on Video: Eiji Aonuma Shows Off Gyroscope Aiming ...:

My only question is if the gyro controls will be turned off when you L-target anything. I ended up turning them off in Ocarina 3D because it was annoying to run aroung while holding L as the view would slant when the 3ds was moved and it would un-center Link.

I can't believe the game is only 23 days away!



rayquaza_master commented on Talking Point: Club Nintendo's Closure Is An E...:

I will miss club nintendo, I did manage to get some pretty cool rewards from it (best ones being a green zelda case and a giant AR card). I hope their new programme is even better.

Also I found that their surveys were justifyed as they would have been a good source of market research assuming they actually use the data.



rayquaza_master commented on Satoru Iwata Highlights Frustration at Missed ...:

@IceClimbers Xenoblade 3ds was shown off in the Austrailan Nintendo Direct, but I can't remember if it had a release date.

For a future Wii U (and possibly 3ds) update, it would be cool if you could open up say an SNES menu where it came up with a list of your SNES VC games that you could launch. The SNES menu would be a different app (the actual emulator) so when you download new VC games they would only be around 5mb or so.



rayquaza_master commented on Poll: Which is the Best Pokémon Game?:

Boy do I love Emerald, I have beaten it 6 times and have played for countless hours. I know that I was only alowed to play on my GBA for one hour a day, but that didn't stop me. ORAS are great remakes and I highly recommend getting a copy. I also would try find HGSS because they are also amazing.



rayquaza_master commented on Poll: Which is the Best Super Smash Bros. Game?:

The reason for brawl's lower vote count is because everyone either loves melee for competitive, speed or nostalgia and people who would choose brawl go for Wii U because it is much closer in terms of mechanics but beter overall in terms of roster and content (I am still sad about Snake not making it back, ah well).



rayquaza_master commented on Feature: Time to Vote For Your Game of the Yea...:

For 3ds retail, I chose Pokemon ORAS, with SSB4 coming in close behind. After all, Pokemon Ruby Sapphire and Emerald are my all time favourite games (I completed Emerald 6 times), but I love me some Smash (I have over 130 hours clocked onto it, even though it released close to an exam period for me ;) )



rayquaza_master commented on Find All Pokémon With a Handy Omega Ruby & Al...:

@SteveButler2210 Yeah, I have at least one game from every region(Omega Ruby,Y,White,Platinum,Emerald,Fire Red,Soul silver as well as a few of the GBC ones). I may try for the national dex if I have the time, it is now much easier than in previous versions thanks to the GTS and online trading, especially in the GBA games where you needed to be near others with the games and have 2 working wireless adapters or one of dem link cables I never had.



rayquaza_master commented on Exclusive New Nintendo 3DS Features Teased For...:

I have almost got a feeling that it may run in 60fps, they mentioned in an Iwata asks interview on ALBW that they wanted to implement a drag and drop inventory screen in OoT3D, but they couldn't run it smoothly due to the lower frame rate (30fps it think?). We all have our hopes.
