ShadJV commented on The Keep Begins Its 3DS eShop Quest on 11th Se...:

I think it could be good, I've grown an interest in first person dungeon crawlers...however, my fall is a bit too packed, between games I'm hyped for and my return to school. Gonna have to take a rain check on this one, but I look forward to reading reviews.



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

I'm incredibly excited. I really hope we get a great Hyrule track. Racing around Hyrule field is a dream come true, though personally I'd love to race through the Lost Woods (with maybe part of it going into the Deku Tree). Then of course there's Twilight Princess's Goron Mines, which work perfect for anti-gravity...

My only gripe is characters like Dry Bowser should've been in the initial game (as they're veterans) while the Koopalings could've made a good DLC pack with a bunch of new and retro Bowser themed courses. And the babies could've been another DLC with baby themed courses (including the return of Baby Park). Still, I won't complain, I get to race around as Link! And... another Mario and another Peach... but Link!



ShadJV commented on Feature: Kickstarter's Wii U and 3DS Campaigns...:

I do want to mention that Brawl in the Family is ending so, assuming this gets funded, Nefarious would be the creator's next project. That added motivation for me at least, I love that guy's creativity.



ShadJV commented on Feature: Kickstarter's Wii U and 3DS Campaigns...:

The Brawl in the Family writer is working on the music for Nefarious! I backed it earlier this week, my third time backing (previously Mighty No. 9 and Shantae) and I really hope we hit those stretch goals, it's looking to be a very fun game, especially the reverse boss fights!



ShadJV commented on Review: Mega Man Battle Chip Challenge (Wii U ...:


The sequels do add more; this, however, is not a sequel, it's a spinoff. As the review stated, it's a spinoff of a spinoff.

I was curious to try this but heard bad things, glad you guys finally put up a review so the last of my curiousity can go. I'll skip this one, use that money towards Guacamelee instead.



ShadJV commented on Weirdness: Pikmin on GameCube Can Be Run in Wi...:

@Obito_Tennyson Doubt it. The executable is barely playable, it runs but it crashes easily and is very incomplete. Plus, it is unconnected to the game itself so even if you managed to mod it, it wouldn't affect the game... And would be pointless to do anyways because the windows executable is so incomplete. It does give insight into Nintendo's debugging processes for the game though...

It must've been so fun making this game, AI is one of my favorite parts of game design and trying to replicating "herding" was one of my most enjoyable parts of game design in college!



ShadJV commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

Pretty disappointed, I could have bought any of these if I really wanted them. And the price range is ridiculous, should've at least been all retail choices for platinum. Well, now I guess I should decide between Game & Wario or DKCR3D... Ugh idk which to pick...

Also, do we get this codes right away?



ShadJV commented on Best Buy Gearing Up For Enticing Buy One Get O...:

Must not forget, must not forget, must not forget...

And wow I was tempted with that 3DS (I need an XL and want a good special edition one) but I have Dream Team already... I'll continue to pray to Palutena for a Smash one, Nintendo will auto win my money then!



ShadJV commented on Captain Falcon, Lucina and Robin All Join The ...:

Haha Sakurai, gotta love him. Using Monolith to troll us... I think this debunks the "leak", though I still wouldn't mind Shulk. Even better, we finally have a Fire Emblem magic user, so I'm stoked! Overall, a great reveal!



ShadJV commented on Fi Confirmed For Hyrule Warriors Along With Sk...:

I would've prefered Tingle announced. But I actually liked FI and her calculations (which seemed to usually be 85% for everything). She was my favorite partner.

Next will clearly be the King of Red Lions.

Edit: oh I agree Groose better be in it too, he deserves the love.



ShadJV commented on Controversy Arises at U.S. Pokémon Nationals ...:

Over reactions. I have my doubts he did any hacking, otherwise he would've thought more about which ball to have it in. He would have had to actively specify the dream ball when hacking it. It likely was due to wonder trade, some ancestor of the Aegislash likely was hacked and I'd assume it wasn't his, or he'd have been aware of what ball was used. Besides, its stats were legit, it's perfectly plausible that it was due to a trade and not his knowledge. He shouldn't be punished if he himself didn't do any hacking, and it's impossible to prove that pokemon was hacked rather than one of its ancestors.



ShadJV commented on Nintendo Download: 10th July (Europe):

@Geonjaha it rewards you with a certificate. Which plenty of players are proud to obtain. A good half of the game is about collection, including the very reason your character sets out on their journey, to COMPLETE the Pokedex. Just because some players could care less about that doesn't mean it's not a big part of the game. Without the ability to trade, the game is incomplete.

Not to mention trade evolutions are also impossible. Want a Gengar? Too bad! Your Haunter will always be a Haunter.
