tripunktoj commented on Talking Point: Mario Kart 8 DLC is a Winning F...:

More characters, but with Mario Kart related (like Kongs, Birdo and Bowser Jr.) or at least from Super Mario series, please stop the crossover nonsense... at least until the Mario characters are out there. Next would be Challenges and Battle stages and lastly I wouldnt mind more tracks once all of the other things are out.



tripunktoj commented on Poll: What Are You Most Excited About in the M...:

The only thing I dont like about this DLC packs, is that characters from other series are being introduced, while there are still a lot of Mario series characters missing (some of them Mario Kart favorites) and we are left with those non-sense clones from the horrible initial roster. If a 3rd DLC pack fixes that, welcome.



tripunktoj commented on Mysterious Murasame Castle's Takamaru Was Cons...:

Yes, apparently it was more important to have lots of random pokemon and clones that nobody asked for, instead of having some actual NEWcomers and diversity of franchises (Takamaru, Dixie, King K. Rool, Krystal, S. Goroh, etc)



tripunktoj commented on Review: Flipnote Studio 3D (3DS eShop):

@dAviD7 Well, its a matter of definitions, but discussing that is beside my point. Why is Nintendo of America bothering to restrict access to a download (already published) to only one of the 3 countries with eShop service in their region?



tripunktoj commented on ​Flipnote Studio 3D Now Available To North A...:

@minotaurgamer @OniLink Same here, it took some hours before I could redeem the special Smash demo, but it was made available later... I hope this will be the case for Flipnote. I could email Nintendo customer service, but last time I did that they closed my account saying club.nintendo is only for US and Canada and it was very difficult to get it back again (I currently live in Mexico but I also have US residence). If it isnt made available soon, Im thinking this Feb 13th I can set my new 3DS to US, use my code there without NNID so I change region to Mexico and then do the system transfer, and Ill see if I can download it form my account activity/titles downloaded on the new 3DS now with my mexican NNID.



tripunktoj commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

I dont decide buying (or not) a game based solely on the score, it isnt even one of the most important things for me, I base my purchasing decisions primarly on the content of the review and more often on gameplay videos. But its really useful to have an early idea of what to buy when looking at a platform list of games, also the more scores the healthier (useful) and fairer the metacritic system will be, so I definetly think game reviews need to have a score.



tripunktoj commented on Nintendo of America Issues a Fresh Batch of Mo...:

I have one unused MH4 demo code left, I'll trade it for the 2 codes that give 100 potions each, that came in the Pokemon ORAS bestbuy/amazon bundle (I can also offer unused diancie codes). Asking for american codes, offering american codes. If interested hurry, Im on my last MH4 code,.Quote me or mail to: tripunktoj (at) hotmail if you want to trade.



tripunktoj commented on Talking Point: Club Nintendo's Closure Is An E...:

I dont mind surveys if they are short (5 questions or less) I think its the only way we have to directly communicate our own personal opinion to Nintendo and actually be listened. The only thing I really want from the new rewards programme is to be able to recieve physical rewards in Mexico and Latin America, where I currently live, and that it continues offering free digital games.



tripunktoj commented on Poll: Which is the Best Super Smash Bros. Game?:

People are still hyped for Smash Wii U, but if you look at the limitations, trends and oportunities at the time each one was released, its actually the worst... by far. The best would be Melee for competitive players and Brawl for lone wolves.

For me its: Brawl 9.5/10 > Melee 9 > N64 8 > 3DS 7 > WiiU 6



tripunktoj commented on Video: Top 5 Things We Love About Smash Bros. ...:

There are a couple things I like about this game, even when it sadly wasnt the near perfect "must have" game we all expected for a Smash Bros, I agree with some of them on the video but... The 8 player battles just arent playable, they might be a little fun and interesting, but I can barely keep track of where I am on my 50" full HD screen and Mario Party intending to take the place of a proper single player adventure/campaign/story (smash tour) just doesnt go well with my Smash (the same can be said for turning break the targets into angry birds)



tripunktoj commented on Masahiro Sakurai Admits That Super Smash Bros....:

I hope so, his decisions in the latest games were horrible:

-Removing adventure/story mode and cutscenes.
-Transforming "Break the tragets" challenges into an Angry Birds clone.
-A roster filled with clones and random pokémon instead of more newcomers.

I admit there are a couple things I liked in the latest entries, they are still a good game, but it isnt even close to the perfect game we all expect for a Smash Bros.



tripunktoj commented on Impending Japanese Launch Of Super Smash Bros....:

First the game is stuffed with Mario and Pokémon characters, I can understand the Mario characters and justify Rosalina and Bowser Jr. with all of that different and interesting moves, but they are still too many characters of the same series, while other great games are completely left out or get 1 character at most.

Pokemons (other than Pikachu, and maybe Jigglypuff being in the 1st game) are completely random and nonsense choices which could be better in Pokeballs allowing more space for some veterans, newcomers, or completely new game series that could actually be original and interesting.

We dont get Chrom because Sakurai said he would be too similar to other Fire Emblem characters, but we get Lucina which is almost identical to Marth in both looks and moves. In the same way we get Dr. Mario and Dark Pit wasting a character slot when they are only clothes and color variations

:( Sakurai really messed up this game! ... At least when it comes to roster.



tripunktoj commented on Feature: Introducing The New Challengers in Su...:

The poll is missing a least favorite new challenger question again.

And again that'd be Greninja for me. Smash Bros is oversaturated with random pokémon as playable characters, a Pokémon Trainer and Pikachu would've been enough, so that more varied newcomers could enter.



tripunktoj commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

They should release all the classic MK characters that are missing in this game (Diddy Kong, Birdo, Funky Kong, King Boo, Dry Bones, DK Jr.) or some actually new and creative characters (not just different 8 colors, 3 disguises or ages for the same old characters) from the Mario universe (Pauline, Wart, Nabbit, E.Gadd, Piantisimo, C. Syrup) before bringing characters from completely unrelated series



tripunktoj commented on Sakurai Explains Why Chrom Didn't Make It Into...:

So... Sakurai didnt like Chrom because it would play very similar to the other Fire Emblem characters, but instead he decides to bring Lucina who is almost identical to Marth in looks and moves, yea that totally makes sense.



tripunktoj commented on NES Remix Titles Coming in Physical Version to...:

For download only games published by Nintendo, I always wait for them to be a club.nintendo reward. But hoping we'd get a retail version as Japan, I held off form getting NES Remix as my platinum reward, and now Im glad I did and went instead with Dr. Luigi for the platinum reward.



tripunktoj commented on Talking Point: Mii, Myself and I - The Argumen...:

I admit I love the idea to play as some of my 200+ Miis. Not the best use for a playable character spot in Smash Bros, but its much better than stuffing the roster with random pokémon ... cough Greninja, Lucario cough Charizard cough cough!



tripunktoj commented on Play: Mario Kart 8 in the NLife Community GP -...:

Alejandro here, I had a great time racing and surprisingly right now Im in the top 3 (I had at least 3 horrible races because of my own fault and another more with no luck with the items). The last 5 or so races with more CPUs than humans sure helped me but it was hard anyway, whoever got 450+ deserves that 1st spot.



tripunktoj commented on Guide: Getting Started in Mario Kart 8:

In Mario Kart 7 its easier to get 3 stars cups if you start with 150cc, since you have no unlockables and the CPU cant use them either, so I think it'd work the same way here... But if you like your MK though, itd be OK to start with 50cc.



tripunktoj commented on Mario Kart Month: Keeping the Mario Kart 8 Rac...:

MK8 character roster desperately needs DLC (top DLC priority), this is the worst MK roster ever with koopalings occupying 7 slots and babies 5 (some of which dont even exist out of Mario Kart) and dont get me started with gamings worst random idea pink gold peach... its the most lazy and unoriginal way of filling a roster. Especially with some classic characters left out and TONS of Mario character that would fit great as new racers. More tracks would be awesome, Id like to finally see GBA Cheese Land as a Retro track. Battle arenas is also a must for MK. Challenges in the DS format would also be nice, but not a priority.



tripunktoj commented on Patch Fixes Bug in Donkey Kong Country: Tropic...:

Mine wont update, didn't show up on Download Management screen and it lauches the game without updating. Theres no update file for it in the system memory and the start screen isn't displaying "Ver 1.1" ... maybe its a regional patch.



tripunktoj commented on Star Parodier Removed From the Wii Virtual Con...:

Its sad, but this was completely expected. Im glad I picked up all of the Wii Shop games I wanted back when the Wii U was launched (including Star Parodier), the only delisted game I missed and really wanted was "The magic obelisk"



tripunktoj commented on Poll: Have Your Say On The GamePad's Role With...:

I have always preferred to play every game in its original console, so Virtual Console has never captivated me, I only download this games if they are for consoles I don't own (mostly imports and non-Nintendo) have enough interesting new features (online, content, portability) or are free, extremely cheap, or a promo (DKOE). But its a nice service for those without the original consoles and even for me, since I get to know many games I didn't know, or remember me to play others.

The Wii U Virtual Console games have much more pale colors than the original games or even their Wii and 3DS Virtual Console versions, you cant change the ratio or resolution to fit (up & down) or fill (completely full screen), most of them are extremely overpriced and even if you own the game for Virtual Console on other Nintendo system you have to pay again for the same game. Id prefer if we had the option to play Wii U without turning on the Game Pad, I like the upscaled graphics

In short theres no reason to buy Virtual Console games on Wii U, Miiverse is also available on 3DS and you can get upscaling and customizable controls without all the Wii Us disadvantages, legally (provided you bought another iteration of the game before) running a ROM in an emulator. Nintendo 3DS is a much better fit for Virtual Console games, unlike the Wii U Game Pad you can actually take the system out of the room and play, you can also use Miiverse, it also has Virtual Console menu/functions, and doesn't letterbox the image or washdown the colors.
