rushiosan commented on Nintendo Download: 29th January (Europe):

I quit when I saw "pointer controls" in Metroid Prime description. Seriously. Why not simply put it on GamePad? You could just use ZR/ZL for nunchuck action commands on MP3. Both 1 and 2 worked flawlessly on GC controller, then New Play Control mechanics just ruined it.

TLTR: I'll pass.



rushiosan commented on Nintendo Shows Off Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate's...:

It didn't catch me by the demo. I always found the mechanics and gameplay on MH series way too sluggish, slow, imprecise. Of course the whole hunting thing is a bucket of (nearly) endless fun, but overall, it's not the kind of game for me. I'm happy the demo is unlimited, though.



rushiosan commented on Weirdness: The Pokémon Timeline Seems as Craz...:

Nintendo games doesn't have to make sense in a timeline. Zelda doesn't have a timeline. Period. Even if Eiji Aonuma says there is one, it makes no f* sense, everything lacks reasonable connections, so you better enjoy them separately. Same for regular Mario and Pokémon games.



rushiosan commented on Rosalina & Luma amiibo Exclusive to Target in ...:

I'm out of this Amiibo mess, hoping the whole thing sinks faster. The idea was poorly executed. High prices, very limited supplies, retailer exclusives (the worst part if you live in a country without any of these stores) and limited usage to only 1 game per figure. Seriously. It was great at E3 but now it's just a big pile of "meh".



rushiosan commented on Nintendo Maintains Its Vague Rhetoric on amiib...:

I hope that stupid idea ends up sinking. First the limited games that support them (and I doubt there will be any significant change on that list). Second the very very limited stock plus store exclusives. Third the inflated prices. Now that "they're never coming back" part. Seriously, I have enough reasons to spend my money in actual action figures rather than Amiibos. It was a nice idea when showed at E3 but poorly executed right after.



rushiosan commented on Feature: These Are The Mario Kart 8 DLC Packs ...:

None of them actually made me interested. Lots of cool characters and everything, but they don't have enough appeal for a Mario Kart game, or don't fit in properly. It would turn the whole thing into something else that's not MK8.



rushiosan commented on Talking Point: The amiibo Range Grows, Yet Key...:

It has enough reasons to fail and I'm pretty sure it will. Once again, Nintendo is late. If this thing came before Skylanders or Disney Infinity it would be truly innovative and would catch people's attention, like "we made the first home console that merged toys and games". Now it's just an expensive way to make you look cool while using NFC on a Nintendo console. There's not even an explanation about why you should store and carry such data...



rushiosan commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Pre-Purchase and P...:

@Tritonus It still fills up some space even if you move it to and external HD, and if I'm not mistaken, you still need to temporarily transfer the whole content as a "cache" to Wii U internal memory while playing. At least that's how most phones do today and how Wii used to. Not completely sure though.



rushiosan commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Pre-Purchase and P...:

That's why having a 32GB internal storage hardware is such a stupid idea. Why not just double it as a default? What about idiots, I mean people, who purchased the 8GB version back in the days? Man, Nintendo is a step back in basically every aspect of digital content distribution. At least the digital version should be 30-50% cheaper, so it would make people REALLY care about going digital instead physical.



rushiosan commented on Talking Point: The Majora's Mask 3D Reveal Sho...:

Now all I want is a 3DS Player for Wii U (Like GC had GBA Player) and I'll be satisfied. I love playing on my 3DS but seeing such a masterpiece in a big screen would be awesome. I don't care about pixels and stuff everyone is complaining about.



rushiosan commented on Feature: What We Want to See in the November N...:

@Light The problem is: DLC is not used properly on most Nintendo games. Pikmin had a very small replay value and the only way to keep enjoying the game after you finish it is through mission DLC. It's very, very hard to reach 1 million coins on New SMB 2, but thanks to DLC, you can accomplish this task easily. I don't like the way it's implemented because it feels like a "premium service" instead a simple expansion.

Fortunately, MK8 DLC was pretty well designed. The full game alone offers a lot of content and replay value, you can enjoy it and accomplish everything without downloading additional stuff. I hope SSB stuff follows that path.



rushiosan commented on New Nintendo 3DS Videos Show Off Compulsory Sc...:

@Hero-of-WiiU Finding normal SD(HC) cards is already a pain. You have to stick with adapters to turn MicroSD into SD so you can put it in a 3DS, because nobody sells 16-32GB regular SD anymore. And honestly, the 3DS is basically one of a few mobile devices around that still uses regular SD cards, all other phones/tablets are already using MicroSD.



rushiosan commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

There goes my plans of purchasing it. Another useless piece of plastic made by Nintendo. Bravo.

Why not just release GameCube Virtual library with this thing? Damn it, they're stupid or what? I'm seriously disappointed, my old GC controllers will remain in the shelf. I'll never pay that much for a SSB exclusive accessory.



rushiosan commented on Ocarina of Time gets a 2D Makeover:

Ocarina of Time simply don't work in 2D.

There's a lot more beyond the graphical aspects in this game. The maps, towns, puzzles and everything (including ocarina songs) were planned to work as a whole in the first Zelda translation to 3D. The game was made this way and that's it.

I felt like every single map looked and played very empty, lifeless, dull, without half of the charm the original had. And yeah, the graphics didn't age pretty well since 1997, but going 2D isn't a smart move if you ask me. Why not develop a decent HD texture pack or a ROM mod for emulation instead?

I doubt this project will ever be be finished. There's too many problems into translating such game to 2D (specially dungeons, bosses etc) and Nintendo probably will shut it down and lawsuit everyone. We saw it happening before.



rushiosan commented on Demo for Super Smash Bros. 3DS Announced for N...:

I'd really appreciate a spare code if you guys could be nice enough to give me. Not planning to beg or something, but my hopes of receiving one from Nintendo are pretty low... e-mail me at, thanks in advance!



rushiosan commented on Talking Point: Mario Kart 8's Diverse DLC Sets...:

After installing both update and Mercedes Benz DLC pack, I can say I'm somewhat disappointed. The advertising for new DLC packs (with Link, Animal Crossing and stuff) is really invasive. You're forced to see flashing icons in your character selection list and cup screen, and so a red "!" on the main menu begging for purchase. I don't think Nintendo is doing the right thing with DLCs, Pikmin 3 could have an extreme replay value for extra missions if they WEREN'T downloadable packs. Same for New SMB 2. I consider purchasing the packs anyway, I just wish they were more quiet about that.

But where's the item balancing and battle mode fix?



rushiosan commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

There's nothing wrong with these awesome packs, but in other hand I hope the upcoming "fix" for flawed battle mode isn't paid. Give us the classic arenas for free and I'll have no reasons to complain about MK8 DLC packs. Ever.
