I don't know, this takes ditching Yoshi to a whole new level.

...Its just that the whole thing kind of reminds me of four swords. ... And even with the Anniversary Edition being offered for free twice, it was hard to find people.



shinesprite commented on Splatfest Details Are Confirmed for 18th July ...:


The first day since the game's launch that I go on vacation and can't play the game, they announce a new splatfest (which I also won't be able to compete in).

Oh well, at least I got to try out Moray Towers . . . and go team Waterslides!



shinesprite commented on Talking Point: The New Nintendo 3DS Could Be a...:

@ThomasBW84 I couldn't have said it better myself. Portability is an important factor when it comes to raising public awareness of a new product, growing the street-pass community, and just serving as a portable console in general.

That said, it looks like my new micro SD card might be spending quite a bit of time alone in its package. Sigh.



shinesprite commented on Nintendo Outlines Confusing amiibo Save Data L...:

Ugh, can't we just go back to reading/writing saved data to game controllers (like how you could use Wii remotes to store Miis/Brawl controller mappings), and then scanning AR cards for games which simply read data (like KI:Uprising)?



shinesprite commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

I think it looks great, but I would prefer matching button colors, full-sized SD support, and the power button not being on the system's exterior (I can just imagine accidentally pressing it when its in my pocket).

I'm also not in favor of the gap caused by the touch screen's bezel when the device it closed.

Otherwise, I'm all for it!



shinesprite commented on Nintendo Scoops Three "Best Of E3" Game Critic...:

Its okay. What we saw of Splatoon was actually a very well-developed prototype. Splatoon is still heavily under development, and it (sort-of) makes sense that they would want to focus on awarding games which release this year.



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

Previously, I was on the fence between Wind Waker HD and Pikmin 3. However, seeing as I have already played through the original Wind Waker, I'll probably go for this one.

The new control option sounds great, but like many others, I would appreciate an option for lefties. . . . Oh well, if I could make it through Kid Icarus: Uprising, I can certainly handle Pikmin 3.



shinesprite commented on Super Smash Bros. Hitting 3DS This Summer, Wii...:

Personally, I am most looking forward to the Wii U edition.

I would have preferred that they both released at the same time (even if that meant that the 3DS version was delayed).

As it stands, I'll probably wind up getting both.
