thehoppypoppy commented on Talking Point: New Nintendo 3DS, Operation Fac...:

I wasn't planning on getting a New 3DS in the first place. I never felt like the "upgrades" were worth the $$$ when I still love my regular (magnificently purple) 3DS. However, should something happen to said 3DS, I would find it super difficult to replace it now that the regular 3DS seems to be no longer produced. I've never liked the XL models, they've never felt comfortable for me. Also, even in my size 14 jeans, no XL sized 3DS (New or otherwise) is going to fit in my pockets. Seems senseless to discontinue the regular 3DS and not offer a regular N3DS. Guess I will be taking extra good care of my 3DS now (not that I've been abusing it or anything). Though, come to think of it, I can always buy used I suppose (though I prefer my hardware new. . .no pun intended).

I voted for a LoZ cartoon, but it could make for an equally awesome live action series as well.

As others have said, a Fire Emblem series would be epic!!!

It would be cool if Nintendo and Atlus got together and made an Etrian Odessey cartoon series.

I assure you that my congrats was heartfelt and genuine. I can see how my post could be perceived as catty, but it wasn't meant to be. He wouldn't have asked if he thought she would say no. I'm glad they are both happy. To find love is a gift, and I wish them a lifetime of wedded bliss! :-)

It's not a crime to have my own notion of romance though (I'd say that it has served me well). I personally wouldn't find it romantic, but she did, so he did good! :-)

I don't doubt that Untold II will make it to the US. I'm more interested in a remake of EO III (though I do plan on getting II). I would love it if a remake of III was like EO IV, so that the stratums (dungeons, etc...) were spread out on other islands. Though perhaps I hope for too much...



thehoppypoppy commented on Feature: Working 9 to 5 in a Fantasy Life - We...:

Started as a hunter, then I was a miner for awhile. Now I'm an angler. So much to do! Pretty sure this will become my most played game on the 3DS (given how many hours I've devoted to Animal Crossing and Etrian Odyssey IV, that's saying a lot)!

Also, I really want the female angler's hat! I'd wear that hat EVERYWHERE!

Tomorrow is the big day in the US! Got my "shipped" notification from Amazon this morning! SO EXCITED! 8D



thehoppypoppy commented on Nintendo 64x64: Pilotwings 64:

I would love a Wii U version of this game, with the original Pilotwings cast (plus maybe some newcomers as unlockable characters?)! I like the 3DS version too...but it lacks some of the same charm as the 64 version.

So many early N64 memories just came flooding back to me. Those were good days! :-)



thehoppypoppy commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

To all of the guys who are saying stuff like, "Men are sexualized too, but I'm not making a big deal out of it."

My question is, why aren't you? You certainly have as much right to be offended by the sexualization of men. The fact of the matter is BOTH men and women are sexualized. Why should any of that be okay in the first place? Why should anyone accept that?
Just because both genders are being sexualized doesn't make it okay.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying sexuality is a bad thing. However, when it is exploited or abused, it becomes unhealthy for the mind and body. The story/games could have easily been written so that the suit always stayed on. The removal of the whole suit was intentional, it is fanservice, it's as simple as that.

Her athelticism doesn't bother me. I'm sure if I ran around like she does, that I would be built like that too (and I would be a healthier person for it). What bothers me is the, "if you've got it, flaunt it" mentality. She could just as easily pull off a tasteful leotard, in my opinion. Plus those heels are crossing the line. No one sensible would battle in heels, they are only there to further solidify her as a virtual sex symbol. I think it's great that she is a strong heroine, but that's about as far as my appreciating her as a character goes.
