I love the previously stated ideas of actual battle arenas in MK8 as DLC. Otherwise I'm looking forward to more levels, as well as the AC characters. :-)

I've been indifferent to the Smash DLC thus far. Not interested enough in the characters, plus the costumes just don't do it for me.



thehoppypoppy commented on Review: Etrian Mystery Dungeon (3DS):

The review was excellent, but I'm still on the fence. Not entirely sure this game is up my alley. . .

Would an Etrian Odyssey fan who had never played a Mystery Dungeon game before this be willing to give me some insight (or maybe I'm one of the very few who hasn't played an MD game)?



thehoppypoppy commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Turns to Classics, DLC...:

I was very happy with this direct, and at times, surprised.

I'm excited to FINALLY have a release date for Splatoon! The sneak peek at the MK8 AC DLC, was delightful to see (I'm a little nervous about trying the 200cc though). I'm interested to learn more about the AC spinoff as well (honestly, I didn't see that coming). More info about the new FE game, was super exciting for me! Plus BOXBOY! has piqued my interest immensely! I haven't had this much excitement from a direct in quite awhile! :-D



thehoppypoppy commented on Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer Launching...:

I have mixed feelings. The game looks amazing, and totally looks like something I would be into. However, I worry about the cards. If they were to sell them as fixed sets, not randomized by pack, then I would be all in! I don't want to acquire 5 of the same characters. . .and I have no friends to trade with. :-/



thehoppypoppy commented on Head Teachers in the UK Issue Warning to Paren...:

I think the hearts of the teachers are in the right place, but they're going about it entirely the wrong way. They should try to educate or reason with the parents. Threatening them will not lead to anywhere good, and will only create more conflict.

If they made a Fire Emblem version, I would be tempted to play a Dynasty Warriors game. I like LoZ, but I'm not that hardcore about the series, so I doubt that I would fully appreciate Hyrule Warriors. Kind of surprised that my brother hasn't picked this up though.

Amiibos: The Beanie Babies of the video game realm.

I'll pass. I prefer to spend my money on actual games. I might buy them in card form, but only if reasonably priced. As is, I feel that they are overpriced DLC figures, adding little to gameplay. I also don't need another thing in my house to dust, haha! ;-)



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).



thehoppypoppy commented on Poll: Which Nintendo Franchises Should be Prod...:

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! :-)
