thaantman commented on Nintendo Download: 18th December (North America):

Think I'll grab megaman 7, steamworld dig (just not sure if I should grab it for wii u or 3ds) ping 1.5 plus is a game ive had my eye on and for $2 the price is right. And I would grab both art of balance & nano assault if these were a little cheaper I'll get 1 or the other.



thaantman commented on Little Mac Is Officially The Least Successful ...:

I don't find little mac to be difficult to beat maybe its just me. I have a friend that main him and played plenty of online and I win 90% of the time with almost any character I use. His attacks are fast & powerful but still avoidable. His air game is what kills him, its easy to get little mac off the stage around 60 to 70 percent so if you can just endure his onslaught he shouldn't be a problem. I actually find rosalina mains to be more of an issue.



thaantman commented on Nintendo Highlights Huge Indie Line-up for Win...:

While I do wish nintendo would get more major 3rd party support i kinda don't mind too much having 1st party nintendo games and a slew of top notch indie games I'm completely satified there so many indie games already out I still been meaning to grab. Grabbing a handfull of great indie games for $60 just sounds more attractive then buying some of these 3rd title that probably watered down compared to other consoles and expect to pay the same price.



thaantman commented on Polychromatic Extravaganza de Blob Will Be Mak...:

Loved both de blobs for different reasons I think I like the 1st one a little more for its laid back feel to it. Didn't finish the 2nd 1 but I loved the hilarious cut scenes and the story was much deeper. Looking forward to a sequel or wouldn't even mind a remake with hd up grade and sum gamepad support.



thaantman commented on Review: Cosmophony (Wii U eShop):

This in someways reminds me of the first bit trip games on wiiware. Besides runner most of the bit trip games only had 3 stages and they were punishing experiences to say the least but enjoyable as well especially if you were able to actually beat a stage you certainly felt a strong sense of accomplishment. That's what I'm expecting from this game so imma give a go even if its a chance I'll never beat it for only $4 I've certainly have put out more for games that I still remain stuck on.



thaantman commented on Review: Arrow Time U (Wii U eShop):

Nintendo should really put a section on the eshop for all the critically acclaimed indirect games. Because there's are actually a few good quality budget games and they deserve their spot like instead of being loss in the shuffle with crap like this.

thaantman commented on Proun+ is Coming Soon to a 3DS Near You:

I'll definitely keep this on my radar. I didn't care for the 1st person view in speed so that alone makes this game somewhat interesting to me. The music sorta reminds me of de blob and I like the art style too. If this release @ a budget price like speed then I'm all over this.



thaantman commented on Bigger Stages, Dual-Plane Battles and Danger Z...:

8 player smash officially sold this game for me. I mean I was going to get this no matter what but I was gonna hold off getting this day1 perhaps wait to December since this and pkmn ORAS comes out the same day. I'd figure smash 3ds can hold me over, but my goodness 8 players @ once. If they confirm 4 on 4 team battle I will cry tears of joy lol



thaantman commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd October (North America):

Smart that Nintendo didn't release any wiiU eshop games like stealth 2 since both bayonetta games & just dance came out to give attention to these releases. So next week you can just fill the gap with download releases



thaantman commented on Review: Ninja Battle Heroes (3DS eShop):

And my eshop want list grows more. With this being on the cheap side may get this sooner than later. But man still need azure strikers gunvolt while mighty gunvolt is still a free add on, and on the wiiU eshop teslagrad, paper monsters, art of balance, stealth inc 2, still waiting for reviews for ballpoint universe and ping 1.5+



thaantman commented on Pokémon X & Y Won't Be Patched to Accommodate...:

I wouldn't say it would make X & Y obsolete. For 1 we have to trade diancie over from X & Y if we want mega diancie so trading still seem to be possible. You'll prolly just won't be able to trade a pokemon from ORAS if its holding an unfamiliar mega stone. But we don't know all the pokemon that's available to be caught so we can trade pokemon from X & Y to ORAS such as gen 6 pokemon.



thaantman commented on Guide: How to Catch a Pokémon Omega Ruby & Al...:

Already have a trainer club account, have no idea when or why I created it perhaps it had something to do with me having pokemon X. Not sure if I'm opted in for emails or not and I can't get into my account despite reseting my password and asking for my user name. So really hoping I'm already opted in for emails.



thaantman commented on Mega Man Felyne Armour Makes Monster Hunter 4 ...:

I don't see an issue with free extra content. Either download it or don't. I actually never got in to the monster hunter franchise so see samus & mega man has caught my attention. Giving me characters I'm familiar with in a unfamiliar franchise would definitely be a good starting point in drawing my interest and perhaps make me want to buy past & future games.



thaantman commented on Not All Super Smash Bros. Characters Will Make...:

I fully expect the original 12 to be on the game (no matter how much I dislike jigglypuff) I also expect characters to be swapped out, like how young link went to toon link &roy to marth. I think pokemon trainer
should return with different starter pokemon should also add a female pokemon trainer too. I think clone characters should either be download content, or pick them the same way you pick zero suit samus, hold a button before the game start and it changes to that character. Or make a clone a costume change and the moveset is just altered



thaantman commented on Sonic 4: Episode II Teaser Trailer Due Tomorrow:

Cant wait 4 this to come out, the first episode was great. I'm almost certain this will b out for wiiware, this is all suppose 2b 1 game, so it would make more sense to release all the episodes on the same platform. I guess I need 2 hurry and finish sonic colors then play episode 1 over again before this comes out.



thaantman commented on Ubisoft: "Nobody Proved Wii Does FPS Controls ...:

I was never a big FPS fan, but when I first played metriod prime 3 (i consider it a fps i'm in 1st person and i'm shooting @ stuff) i fell in love with the control scheme, it felt so fluid. And from there I started to get into the genre a bit with games like the conduit, red steel 2, and golden eye And i would have friends that so stuck on xbox when they try to play with the motion controls, they act like their to lazy to hold the remote right and complain all the time, if they owned the wii and actually took time to get use to the controls, rather then try to just jump in thinking the controls are gonna b instantly perfect, the realize that motion kills duel analog.



thaantman commented on Feature: BIT.TRIP SAGA vs. BIT.TRIP COMPLETE:

I only have a wii so complete sounds like the complete package to me. online leaderboards for all your hardwork, easy difficultly if u can't hack it, hard difficulty if your just crazy, and a set of bonus challenges to keep you busy. But still having these games in 3D would be cool and be more accessible, I remember showing a friend bit trip runner, once I gave him the controller he didn't want to put it down, so it be nice to show this game off to more ppl in a portable fashion, I also would love to plug in some headphones to the bit trip tracks, that's pure awesomeness in my ear.



thaantman commented on Sonic 4: Episode II Not Due Until 2012:

It wouldn't make sense for this to be released on the wiiU simply because this is meant to be 1 game, to break the game across multiple platforms would be a bad move. I feel as though wii only owners deserve to get this 1st, mainly because were not getting generations, even though they could had easily made that for wii with sonic colors engine. how many episodes do they plan on making it's gonna be a year and a half between the 1st and second how long to they plan on making us wait for a third i'm sure ppl are beginning to lose interest.



thaantman commented on Nintendo DS Sales Figures Make Wii's Look Tiny:

well since i like to trade games in @ gamestop I haven't been able to have a large collection of games @ 1 time. I currently have around 16-17 retail games. and over 30 wiiware/virtual console. But if I never traded in any games I would have close to 80games including downloads. I don't have any ds games now or a working ds for that matter but if I had to guess I probably had somewhere between 20-30 games never had a dsi so no dsiware, but i do plan on getting a 3ds when the price drop



thaantman commented on Super Mario Converse High-Tops Let You Jump Re...:

I like the red & black & the light blue ones with world 1-1, don't really care for the other ones with all the marios on them. just looked on ebay and these bad boys are going over $300, only time I'll ever consider paying that much for mario is if it comes with a game system.



thaantman commented on 3DS Drops to $169.99 from 12th August:

now I want to get a 3ds more than ever, I can buy one before august 12, and not have to worry about buying a game right away because I'll have 20 games, or wait till august 12 and not pay over $200 for the system, use about 30-40 to buy a game and still have some change in my pocket.



thaantman commented on Feature: The State of WiiWare:

Wii ware definitely has some gems in there, it's just ashame because wiiware could had really been something more. lost winds 1 & 2, world of goo, mega man, cave story, bit trip series, nyx quest, swords & solders, sonic 4, jett rocket, FAST, art style series, and a few others i may not have mentioned or haven't played. wii ware has high quality games on a low quality service, tons of shovel ware, only afew demos, no price cuts or weekly sells, and a horrible interface, also the file limit, which is one reason why alot of games can't have online (not sure what's the excuse for alot of retail games not having online) one way nintendo could announce game sells is though the message board apparently, the only time I really see that blue light is when I get a new record in wii sports



thaantman commented on Feature: Staff Memories of Sonic the Hedgehog:

my first offical game console was the N64, when i was 3 my big sister who was 12 @ the time had sega genesis and the only game she had was sonic 2, I watched her play it and it didn't take me long to start playing it, I eventually took over the game system, because all the games brought for it was mines. I believe sonic 2 was the 1st game I ever beat, I'm not 100% sure I do remember getting all the way to the last stage multiple times, It took me forever to beat metal sonic, I eventually beat him but was low on lives than I got to the final boss, that mega huge dr robotnik robot and I know I failed to beat him, but I just can't remember when i actually went back to beat him though. Also remember sonic 3/knuckles when u got all the combined chaos emeralds (i think it's 14 altogether) u turn into ultra sonic or ultra knuckles, but my absolute favorite was tails when he had the birds following him, I just thought that was awesome, I don't believe I ever got all the emeralds more than once per character. I actually played the first sonic the hedgehog last, I didn't beat it on the genesis, I remember making it to the last stage and losing, I believe I beat it on my psp. Also remember when one of m cousins showed us how to get knuckles on sonic 2 & 3 with the cartage, we tried doing it with like ever sega game to see if knuckles would be on there lol like street fighter, earl & toejam, etc. Sonic brings back so many memories, while my cousins had sega & nes they placed mario more than sonic, but I was a sonic man growing up, the 1st mario game I owned not counting mario kart 64 was super mario 64. I began to not like sonic some much when I got a dreamcast didn't care much for the 1st sonic adventure, I had the sonic adventure 2 demo and always wanted it because that 1st stage was fun. sonic shuffle was awful, once I got a ps2 & later on a gamecube I just lost interest in sonic altogether, the 3d games just didn't appeal to me, sonic heroes looked like fun and I played it for a sec @ a gamestop but never brought it. sonic rush was great, it was just a random purchase, the sense of speed was just awesome and I loved how it switched from both screens. sonic 4 ep.1 was good for what it was, a nice throw back, even if it did feel like a tech demo, I guess sega wanted to wipe the slate clean by eliminating tails & knuckles and using similar stages from past games. I think it was a fail to just put sonic even though they're suppose to add tails & knuckles to the future episodes, but still I would had been willing to go through the game 2 more times if I had them to play as, they need to add an update/dlc to add them to sonic 4, it's the least they can do for wii owners that won't be getting there hands on sonic generations as we wait for episode 2 which seems it may have been put on pause. for the time being imma try to get my hands on sonic colors that has been received well. to end this just gonna thank sonic for all the fun times, and being the one that got me into gaming, has been one of if not my all time favorite game franchises :)



thaantman commented on Feature: Sonic: The Nintendo Years - Part One:

I missed out on the entire sega saturn, never owned it, never played it, would love to give sonic cd a try because it looks like the one's from genesis. fav sonic games are still the genesis ones, the 1st sonic rush was good, and I actually like sonic 4 ep.1 and I maybe 1of the few that liked sonic 3d blast. Did anyone else ever did the cheat when u turn on the game and hit the cartage it went to this menu type of thing where u could select any stage u wanted to play, I stumbled apon that by complete accident when i was like six, never knew if any 1 else ever do that.



thaantman commented on Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 Due "In the Ne...:

agree with every1 about the physics, but once you got use to them they weren't bad, I wouldn't even mind if they kept them, but just make sonic a bit faster, always felt like I had to do the homing attack to pick up the pace. But yeah throw in some more original stages, tails & knuckles and it's all good. It will be great if the second one did have tails & knuckles and it was a way to put them both on ep.1 as playable characters similar to putting knuckles on sonic 2



thaantman commented on Gaijin Games Details New Content in BIT.TRIP C...:

Will definitely be looking into this one, I have beat, void, and runner already, and the extras seem worth it, online leaderboards is gonna give these already addictive games mad replay value. And it mentions something about new difficulty modes, i would love for some of these games to be easier simular to how mega man 10 had an easy mode.



thaantman commented on Talking Point: Should Nintendo Have Made the 3...:

I think that the fact that the 3ds stills uses cartages shows that it's still primary a game system. The reason the iphone & ipod touch games don't have physical cartages because they aren't gaming devices 1st their phones 1st. The reason the digital media failed for the psp go is simply because the psp was already out and alot of people owned 1, myself included. No one was gonna trade up their psp's if they already had a full library of games, because they couldn't play those games on the go, they would have to buy them all over again. Nintendo is video games at heart not phones not music players and I don't expect them to get rid of physical media anytime soon.



thaantman commented on Nintendo Download: 27th May 2011 (Europe):

sigh, no FAST demo for europe, so were probably not gettin one, so i'll keep a look out for the review. any1 from europe gettin this on day1 please leave ur thoughts on the game, cause I definitely got $10 ready I just need confirmation that this game is HOTT!!!



thaantman commented on First Impressions: FAST - Racing League:

Been waiting for this game for a while, this looks solid, I never played an F-zero game, but have play several of the wipeouts and I love that series, I do hope this gets a demo on the same day of release, I definitely think this is a day one purchase Need for speed Nitro & mario kart say hello to fast.



thaantman commented on Start Your Engines for FAST - Racing League's ...:

been looking forward to this game for sometime, I love wipeout and i'm really hoping this is a clone of that or even better. this & motoheroz i think could be day 1 purchases because both these guys have solid track records. Where the heck is sonic the hedgehog ep 2? and night game and la mulana from nicalis



thaantman commented on Nintendo Drops Wii to $149.99 and Launches Bud...:

pretty decent, but come on nintendo, throw in smash bros, mario strikers, super paper mario, Fire emblem, mario party 8, wario ware, mario and sonic @ the winter Olympics (since the london Olympics will be out soon) wii sports resort should be $20 since Everyone owns wii sports and resport is significantly better, punch out, and I'm sure there's plenty more I've forgot to mention, but nintendo needs to go all out with this. Any nintendo wii games that was released before 2010 should be on this list. Will be getting supersluggers though loved that game and may get twilight princess



thaantman commented on Review: Mega Man X (Virtual Console / Super Ni...:

@ BellGoRiiing never beat this game either, would make it to the last boss, I believe it was some sort of robot dog, then U would fight the guy in some sort of machine and I don't think I ever figured out how to hit him. I may have to get this, considering you can save virtual console games and don't have to worry about going all the way to the beginning if you lose.



thaantman commented on Rumour: Nintendo Stream Coming Sooner Than We ...:

I don't mind the name being Nintendo stream, but assuming of the style of the controller it doesn't seem this system will use any sort of motion control. If that's the case I hope the wii won't die soon after the release of stream, because I still feel like it's alot of untapped potential for the wii, and I can see it being like ps2 as far as life goes. I hope the wii at least get alot of stream ports



thaantman commented on Features: The History of BIT.TRIP, Part 3:

Just finished reading this 3 part feature, and have so much more respect for gaijin games and there series. They had a goal for their series and accomplish them with such a small team. I only own beat & void, sadly haven't beaten either, definitely gonna take the time out this week to go back. Still plan on getting runner & fate soon and maybe flux, need points. As many others said before they need to rerelease all these games on a disc for around $20-30 throw in some online leaderboards and some other extras like art work or something name it "Bit Trip Journey" or something like that. I'm sure anyone that played at least one bit trip game would get it, and for the people that may not know about the series may grab a hold or may even visit the shop to buy an individual copy.



thaantman commented on Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 Likely to have...:

can't wait, loved episode one, the physics took some getting use to, but it didn't hinder the experience. I just want the game to be cheaper and throw in tails & knuckles so i can get 3 times the replay value, and maybe sum sort of multiplayer, like on sonic 2 & 3 it would be split screen and you could race through the stages



thaantman commented on Mario Sports Mix Giveaway!:

Great sweepstakes to start off the year, and @ least every1 has a decent chance, it's not a US or UK exclusive and this is one of the biggest releases this year. Don't expect to win, but you can't win if you don't try so I won't give my hopes up, hope it's more sweepstakes like this, I hate when theirs an awesome prize being given away and it's for UK only, and I'm sure UK feels the same way when it's US only.
