thehoppypoppy commented on Here's Some of the Changes Atlus Made to the W...:

Tried the demo, don't think I'm getting it. It's pretty over my head. Plus whenever you bring a dead character back to life, your total HP diminishes (meaning you die that much faster). No point wasting my money and my time. I'll hold out for Bravely Second and Fire Emblem next year. I assume they're still being released, yes?



thehoppypoppy commented on The Pokémon Company Sues Fan for Copyright In...:

Don't get me wrong, I get that what he did was illegal. I also understand TPC's need protecting their IP. I still think a payment plan would have been kind (even if it would have been generous), then he wouldn't have needed to make the gofundme page (he could have righted the wrong on his own). Sounds like he'll be covered anyways. . .



thehoppypoppy commented on Review: Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer (...:

AC games have never been about "challenge", per se. Your goals in the game are what you make them. As for the cards being a "cash grab", you don't have to buy them to play the game (last I heard anyway). I think I will enjoy this game as is when I do eventually get this!



thehoppypoppy commented on Feature: A Pokémon Retrospective: Generation ...:

So many of my favorite pokemon are from gen 1. Jigglypuff, Vulpix, Dratini, Bulbasaur. . .the list goes on and on! After gen 1, I didn't come back to pokemon until gen 6 (mainly because I didn't buy another handheld after the gameboy color until the DS). That's probably why gen 1 holds so many great memories for me.



thehoppypoppy commented on The Legend of Legacy Launch Edition is a Thing...:

Sooooo tempting, but It's 2 days before baby #2 is due. Plus I have minimal funds. :-/

EDIT: Oh heck, I may just pre-order it anyway. A little "mother's day splurge" for myself. Who knows when I'll be awake enough (or have the time) to enjoy it. Haha!



thehoppypoppy commented on 3DS Can Last For Another Two To Three Years In...:

I thought the N3DS was the successor of the 3DS (or at least an extension of the 3DS line). This is why I have a hard time believing that the NX will be a hybrid handheld/console.

That being said, I could totally see the 3DS family going for another couple of years, so long as excellent games keep coming out. My backlog is such that I will definitely have enough to play for that long anyway. I'm glad though, because the 3DS is my favorite system yet!



thehoppypoppy commented on Review: I Love My Dogs (3DS eShop):

Or, if you have the necessities to (home, money, food, affection, etc.), you could adopt a real pet from an animal shelter. Save a life! I get that this isn't a possibility for everyone though.



thehoppypoppy commented on Players Reached Splatoon's Level Cap So Fast T...:

I didn't get up to level 20 until the day before the first splatfest (I've had the game since day 1). Of course I don't get to play everyday. If I ever get tired of multiplayer, I'll still have the single player mode to finish. Still enjoy the game though.



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

Team water slide for me. I hope they fix some of the server problems from last Splatfest. Hopefully no 1 vs. 4 or 4 vs. 1 matches either. I ended up on one of each last time. Apparently there is as an 'I' in 'team', and it's a very lonely place (and a total waste of time). I also ended up on a couple of 4 vs. 3 games, but being down a player didn't always mean that a team lost.



thehoppypoppy commented on Poll: Does Nintendo's Drive Towards Multiplaye...:

The only time that I typically play multiplayer is when my brothers (the two who game anyway) are around, or when my niece is in town (or I'm visiting her), so not very often. Splatoon has been the only exception, of course (in fact I've hardly touched the single player). For multiplayer, I love Mario Kart, Splatoon, and Smash. For most other games, I am a lone wolf by choice. If the hubby gets Yoshi:WW, I'm sure he'll talk me into playing co-op with him (probably won't have to twist my arm too hard even).



thehoppypoppy commented on Talking Point: The Pros, Cons and Questionable...:

As others have said, I don't see the NX arriving before the 2016 holiday season. I certainly won't be buying day one, since I've barely had my Wii U a year. Don't see how they'd have time to develop a decent line-up of games at launch. It would be quite risky, I would think, to repeat the mistake of a weak opening line-up (unless they also announce a few more to arrive not too shortly after launch).
