ShadJV commented on Video: Catch Up With Extensive Monster Hunter ...:

Sunk somewhere between 300-400 hours into MH4U (and a few hundred into 3U, which was my first foray) and mostly exhausted the content, sans upcoming DLC (assuming more is still coming) but I boot it up here and there still for some hunts... And I soooo hope we get this, so addicted to the series. If we don't get this one I'll probably drown myself in large wyvern tears.

ShadJV commented on Editorial: Super Smash Bros. Should be Integra...:

So many people doing in depth game speculations on a system we still know nothing about... I'm going to laugh so hard if Nintendo comes out of left field and the NX isn't a hybrid system, especially if the nature of the system is so different that these editorials are irrelevant. And fine, at the very least a Smash Bros on this system could only benefit it, but still, so many people are just assuming it's a hybrid system and running with that. For example, if like the Wii it's introducing a completely new control scheme... Well, a Smash at Wii's launch would've taken the focus away from the games that showed the tech's capabilities like Wii Sports, the system likely benefitted from an slayed launch (though I think it was a little too delayed). Granted, I think Nintendo needs to focus on reclaiming core gamers, the casual market clearly lost interest in them, so I'm not saying such a strategy is wise right now... I'm just think we should stop speculating what games a system should focus on when we don't know anything about the system yet. Unlike its competitors, Nintendo is very unpredictable with its hardware.

ShadJV commented on Reminder: Grab a Mythical Diancie in Pokémon...:

@KingMike they already had an event in the US for Diancie in XY before ORAS came out. Now they're having an event for it in ORAS. And yes, it may be one of the three Kalos event Pokemon but ORAS's special Pokemon is Mega Diancie, which does not exist in XY.

ShadJV commented on Video: Prepare Your Creative Appetite with the...:

I mostly haven't been thinking about this game so I don't get too hyped and I impatient but... Suddenly I have an intense urge to make a bunch of Super Mario World levels, as that was literally one of my first two video games. I'll be like a kid in a candy store.

Does this game have blarggs? Please have barggs!!!

ShadJV commented on Blast Ball is Actually the Tutorial in Metroid...:

Oh so Samus IS in this game, they're just dangling her as a carrot, reminding us we won't allowed to actually have the carrot.

Honestly though, if nintendo just took some time out of that "star fox is a game about arches" segment to actually explain this game... Well that was the biggest problem with the direct, they didn't give people much to be excited for, just shoved trailers at us. We need more explanations if we are going to like this.

ShadJV commented on Nintendo Is Thinking About Making A Transforma...:

@MitchVogel good analogy. Upon realizing they were stuck in a hole, Nintendo decided to just start digging faster and faster, hoping at some point the hole would, like... Cease to be a hole? I don't understand Nintendo's logic right now, they literally are just exacerbating the problem.

ShadJV commented on Good News, Zelda Fans, A Free Costume Awaits i...:

@Captain_Gonru oh I am certain there's more money to be made in DLC if they want to. But I don't think many people will double dip on this game (maybe I'm wrong), so making more DLC could keep Wii U players happy, and then including it all on the 3DS when it comes out would give that value as a complete version... Of course, that makes sense and I don't expect that of Nintendo right now. But hey, I'm hoping this surprise DLC is a good sign, maybe they'll make some announcement later this week...

ShadJV commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

@IceClimbers fair enough, forgot about that, my mind doesn't usually remember when remakes come out. I guess including remakes and crossovers, yes, we have three Zeldas this year... But crossovers don't always appeal to core fans and remakes are of already readily available games. Neither have taken many resources from Nintendo (as one was handled by Tecmo and the other by Grezzo).

ShadJV commented on Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash Is Coming To The Wii...:

@LemonSlice as someone else answered for me, no. 3D World was great, but it focused more on multiplayer than single player and was a level-based platformer instead of a world-based adventurer. Granted, Galaxy 2 was more divided into levels, but the previous three I mentioned had hubs and exploitable worlds, more of an emphasis on exploration... Super Mario 3D World was like Nintendo shouting, "Look, we still can make couch multiplayer fun!" Hardly the grand Mario exploration adventure we've gotten every gen since 64. That's where Mario truly shines.

Don't get me wrong, Super Mario Maker looks incredible, but for vastly different reasons. It's like getting a birthday cake every year and then suddenly you get ice cream instead, and you're just so used to a cake it doesn't feel right, something's missing, and you realize what would be great with the ice cream is more cake, now a la mode.

ShadJV commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

@Quorthon three retail Zelda games this year? You do realize the Wii U one was delayed to next year, correct? Unless I'm missing something, we're getting two, not three (and one of those two is a crossover).

Anyways, yeah, I was pretty disappointed, it was mostly games we already know about, and the announced games didn't deliver what I wanted from those franchises... And god, more Amiibo support for Amiibos I can't get. I'm getting honestly irritated with Nintendo lately...

@Shirma_Akayaku Don't forget every Koopaling.

Seriously though, Mario's 30th anniversary is being so hyped but we're getting Mario Maker (which looks good but...) and the yearly Mario sports title. Wii U has yet to have a single player 3D Mario adventure like 64, Sunshine, and Galaxy. Guess it won't...

ShadJV commented on New Yoshi's Woolly World Video Shows Off Fluff...:

Glad my inkling Amiibos will have another use, since I can't seem to get any other ones for my games...

As for this game, I hope NA has that bundle including the yarn Yoshi Amiibo because I'm not putting up with Amiibo hunting anymore. Oh and hopefully said bundle will be actually AVAILABLE.

ShadJV commented on Video: The Game Theorists Plot Out Mario's Tim...:

shakes head sometimes they have some good points but this is one of the cases they're trying to make something out of nothing. There is no possible Mario timeline, and to make sense of it there would be so much time travel a timeline is irrelevant. I mean, the Mario vs DK series is one big mess then. The Mario there couldn't be Mario's father, unless Mario's father happens to have a brother named Luigi and there's an older Princess Peach... Or would they argue Pauline either doesn't age or time traveled forward to open the toy factory? Are they going to argue the characters pull their baby selves through time for tennis, go kart racing, and more? I also recall a more recent interview stating the Koopalings are not actually Bowser's children, even if it originally referred to them as such. Where's Bowser Jr (who appears to be different than Baby Bowser and calls Bowser dad)? They assume the green Yoshi that found Baby Mario is the same as the Yoshi "dating" Birdo (I've seen no evidence they're actually dating either). They're being liberal with what they count part of this timeline so what about Paper Mario? Mario is Missing? The theory that the characters are actors and the stories are all stage productions makes more sense than this explanation.

ShadJV commented on Review: Fullblox (3DS eShop):

Loving this... Except I'm in the final batch that unlocks when you beat all the packs, and I'm quite stuck on one. sigh

And I skimmed the article and see know mention of the final group of 50 puzzles that unlock when you complete the 250 puzzles in the four packs. That's when the difficulty really ramps up!

ShadJV commented on Reminder: The First Splatoon Global Testfire D...:

Ugh, I didn't get to play at all. Lots of refreshing, praying it'd work, kept disconnecting. Well that was a fun hour. >> the servers better not act like this when it comes out or they may lose my sale...

Too bad I can't make the other two times.

ShadJV commented on Disney Infinity 3.0 is Announced With Star War...:

I'm more curious of upgrades to the system. Any new modes, additional skill trees and level caps, maybe downloadable worlds with stories that allow any characters, etc. reasons to get figurines that don't have playsets. Including older ones, some cool figurines seem like they'll never get much use at this point.
