TreesenHauser commented on Review: Pokémon Shuffle (3DS eShop):

Great review!

As someone who hates the F2P model, I actually really enjoy playing this. I have no beef with taking breaks after playing in short bursts. In fact, my only complaint would involve the lack of 3D--but for a game like this you don't really need it. Shuffle is a lot of fun.



TreesenHauser commented on Super Smash Bros. Club Nintendo Double CD Rewa...:

On Wednesday I noticed my Club Nintendo account said the CD shipped. I'm wondering when it shipped though? I never received a shipping confirmation. Either way, in addition to a Mega Man amiibo and a Wii remote I'm already expecting I guess I can look forward to this showing up soon too!

So if you didn't receive an email, it's worth checking your Club Nintendo account to see if it shipped.



TreesenHauser commented on Nintendo Download: 19th February (North America):

Got Pokemon Shuffle. I actually dig the gameplay.

I was really hoping we would get Kirby's Return to Dream Land like Europe this week. I dig the style of Rainbow Curse, but I'm one of the few that didn't really enjoy Canvas Curse so I was hoping to play Return to Dream Land. Oh well, we'll probably get it eventually.

Other than that I'll probably give the Citizens of Earth demo a try.



TreesenHauser commented on Nintendo Download: 19th February (Europe):

The launch discounts for Wii games were limited promotions, of course it's not gonna be 10 right off the bat.

With that said, even though NA is getting Rainbow Curse this week I still hope NA gets Return to Dream Land as well. I'm one of the Kirby fans that didn't like Canvas Curse, so I don't see how I'll enjoy Rainbow Curse either.



TreesenHauser commented on This Is What Happened When A Kid Pitched Super...:

I had a similar experience to this, only it wasn't a game idea.

Back in the day when Nintendo Power had a section solely devoted to Pokemon, I had always wanted to have my artwork shown in the magazine. So one day I got very creative and drew up a bunch of Pokemon all over an envelope and mailed it in.

A couple of weeks later, I received a letter from the staff complimenting my art work. However, because I had sent in the envelope stamped and everything they couldn't use it in the magazine. They had once again complimented what I had done and told me to keep it up.

Yeah, they could have just not used my art and moved on, but the fact that they took the time to respond was cool.



TreesenHauser commented on Koei Tecmo Releases Awesome Hyrule Warriors Wa...:

Glad to know the game's selling well. Bought Hyrule Warriors just before Christmas and while I got distracted by other games for a couple weeks, I picked it back up and I'm hooked. Having never gotten into Dynasty Warriors before I'm having a blast with it. I strongly recommend it.



TreesenHauser commented on Review: Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario Wor...:

Debating if this is worth my purchase or not. I've played the original a heck of a lot, and the original is probably my favorite 2D Mario game, but reading this review makes me wanna give the GBA remake a try. Is it worth double-dipping?



TreesenHauser commented on Weirdness: Japanese Rock Legend Gackt Has Fina...:

I love when people come here and comment on a story just to trash on it and say something very condescending like "Do a story that's actual news" just to sound edgy. I'd rather read this than some made-up crap or a gloom-and-doom article parading itself as an Opinion piece.



TreesenHauser commented on Satoru Iwata Highlights Frustration at Missed ...:

This is all I want for the next console:

-First and foremost, no more 'Wii,' anywhere in the name.
-Have competing processors/RAM/ROM/etc. so it can stand with the other consoles and win third-parties over.
-A built-in hard drive with triple-digit storage numbers. Why people should have needed to go out and buy external storage for an eighth-generation console is beyond me.
-A solid marketing campaign backing the console, which should show people exactly why they should get one without relying on storied franchises. (see the 'Wii would like to play' ad campaign).
-Allow support for Wii U games (somehow).
-Unified account system so your downloads don't disappear if something happens to your console. Also, cross-buy implementation. There's no good reason why I should have to pay for the same game again on my 3DS if I already own it for Wii U, or vice-versa.
-Oh, and an Ethernet port. :)



TreesenHauser commented on US Release Date Confirmed for Duck Hunt on the...:

This is gonna be a fun way to kill time until the ham is out of the oven on Christmas. Hoping my fellow European gamers get release info soon instead of later.

Oh, and Merry/Happy Christmas to everyone at Nintendo Life--the wonderful staff and user base alike. (only saying it a week in advance because I might not be on much in the next week or so) :)
