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.



rushiosan commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Assets Spotted:

RE: Revelations was a surprise. I was disappointed with the path the franchise took with the last entries, but this 3DS title was one of the best horror/survival games I played in past 5-10 years. Specially raid mode stuff.

Also, it's pretty rare to see a polished game like that running in a portable system. Usually they're bland and cheap ports of a console version, but in this case, I'm glad the 3DS was the "home" of Revelations. Not sure if RE: Revelations 2 will do the same, but I hope we get another high quality product incoming for both Nintendo systems.



rushiosan commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer?:

That's a tough one. I'd say SMW (SNES) is the greatest Mario achievement of all time, not only in a matter of evolved gameplay elements, but it was the first Mario title that absolutely everyone who owned or at least played any game system back in 90's loves. I mean EVERYONE. It's also a much longer game than Super Mario Bros 3.

Mario Galaxy was the farthest step the frachise took. Mario 3D Land / World were great entries on current gen, but evertthing they did came drectly from Mario 64 and Mario Galaxy (quite a bit from Sunshine). So, I'd say Mario 64 is the second greatest Mario game in my opinion.

The original Yoshi's Island on SNES has a special place in my heart. It was different from everything available in Mario universe back then. The art style, unique music, unique story, characters, gameplay... that's why I can't understand how it was called a Super Mario World sequel in western market. The N64, GBA, DS and 3DS sequels/remakes didn't have the same magic though.



rushiosan commented on Talking Point: A Virtual Console Revival Could...:

I'm sorry but I'll never pay full price for those games. Specially NES and GBC. Maybe $1 would be a fair price, and $3-5 for major consoles like SNES, GBA and N64 (if it ever comes to Wii U). Even with that price mark, I'd say they're rough sales though. Emulating NES, SNES, GBC, GBA and N64 on phones and computers is basically perfect, and since the 3DS/Wii U currently doesn't have any homebrew support for now, they have an unique chance to make everyone forget emulators. I bought a phone mostly to emulate stuff and play on the go, but I'd rather have all my favorite titles available on my 3DS/Wii U...



rushiosan commented on Mario Kart 8 Update & DLC Scheduled for 27th A...:

Now they just have to fix the ridiculously unbalanced item sorting system, specially between 2nd and 4th positions, it's pretty hard to get anything better than bananas and coins. Maybe a nerf on coin % chance would be welcome, since you can pretty much max your coins by the 2nd lap (and they're limited to 10 per race).

I'm perfectly fine with blue shells now, they did a great job with those...



rushiosan commented on Mario Kart 8 Sales Increase By Nearly a Third ...:

Better sales won't make MK8 a better, balanced game. Nintendo probably won't fix the item balancing through a DLC or something. They're too cocky for that. After playing it for weeks I realized they missed a perfect opportunity to make the ultimate kart racing game... it's so chaotic and frustrating.



rushiosan commented on Charizard Distribution Event for Pokémon X & ...:

Why can't we have some Wi-Fi event, so everyone would be able to pick that worldwide? You know what's bullshit? People who live in a country that NEVER get this kind of event neither have Gamestop, Walmart or any videogame store that could remotely participate in such events. I had a big reason to put down my X/Y copies, and the lack of worldwide gift events isn't helping. I'm skipping R/S remakes if things don't change at all.



rushiosan commented on Pikmin 3 Update Adds New Stylus Control Style:

To be honest, the default controls (Gamepad) in Pikmin 3 are pretty confusing. Stylus mode is uncomfortable and Gamepad isn't intuitive. I played the "New Play Control" version on previous entries in the series and I'm having a really bad time mastering the controls now. That spoiled a bit my experience with such an unique game.



rushiosan commented on The Club Nintendo Rewards Are Now Updated for ...:

I'd like to get Paper Mario, but it's on Wii mode... I really don't want to use a Wii remote to play this thing, and I already have that game on my old Wii. Would be great to play it using the Gamepad though.

I guess I'll pick Kid Icarus. Does it really worth 200 coins?



rushiosan commented on E3 2014: Ubisoft Admits to Holding Back Comple...:

I don't care about most Ubisoft games. Maybe another Suda51 localization like No More Heroes would lift my hype but that's all. AC is a stinky PoP clone and became the new Call of Duty of wall-jumps with sword fights. Just Dance never got my attention. There are better options if you're a fan of the genre - sadly, Kinect's Dance Central is the best modern dancing game of the past/current gen, or at least a far more complete experience than simply waving a piece of plastic around your body. SEGA's Samba de Amigo was a much much better dance game on Wii. I wish it had a second edition with the addition of Motion Plus to fix all the flaws from its predecessor. The Wii U needs AAA ports, of course, but the main first-party games will definitely raise the bar if properly done. Where's Star Fox, F-Zero, Metroid? These franchises have a lot of potential for both casual AND hardcore gamers but they aren't being explored at full power. Multiplayer, variety and intense online interaction (not only stupid Mii messaging) is the key for turning these franchises into massive sellers. Mario Kart and SSB are the best examples of how a deep multiplayer experience makes a huge difference for everyone.
