tripunktoj commented on Feature: The Unexpected Legacy of Wii Music:

Super Paper Mario for Wii has a special place in my heart, it inspired me to start studying astrrophysics, quantum physics and math by myself when I got to world 6 and started wondering if what happened there could actually somehow happen in real life. Without it, I probably wouldnt have developed my own cosmogony



tripunktoj commented on Super Smash Bros. Is Getting A Massive Update ...:

It seems Sakurai takes it as a challenge every time I say he has made a mess and delivered the worst possible experience in Smash WiiU, and he keeps on smashing my expectations (for bad) with every new update and DLC.

K Rool as costume? Im really glad I gave up gaming for the foreseeable future.



tripunktoj commented on Amazon Pre-order Bonus Will Light Up Your Soni...:

If anyone that got a code for this and didnt liked the costume, or for any reason hasnt redeemed his code, could trade it for other club nintendo codes, just give it away, or let me kow of another way to get this DLC Id really appreciate it.



tripunktoj commented on Updated Documents Point to Multiple amiibo Res...:

There's still stock for Bowser and Link, and Mario has been restocked like all the time, has 3 variants, barely leaves the shelves and is often on sale because of that. Why not focus on the scarce amiibos? I'm still missing Ike Dedede and Lucario, and many people are missing other amiibos, but not Mario and Link



tripunktoj commented on Poll: Is It Time For a Fresh Alternative to th...:

I'll always prefer to play classic games on their original consoles, I'll only get one of the existing VC games on current platforms I own physically if I get them free (like club.nintendo used to do) or VERY cheap (like the 30 cents promotion).

The only reason for me to get a VC version of a game would be for the ones I dont own its original console, like import games and non-Nintendo consoles, but both of these categories were dropped. So the closest I'll be to get a VC game, let alone pay a monthly fee service, is with games like NES Remix or Amiibo tap.

On Wii I paid for 12 VC games from Arcade, non-Nintendo consoles and imports and on 3DS I paid for 3 VC games. Thats not a lot, but for Wii U I have paid for 0 games on VC since those categories are not supported (only got CN freebies)



tripunktoj commented on Poll: With Races Won and Cups Collected, How D...:

200cc is unplayable in many tracks if you aim for 1st against CPU. As for DLC, I would have rated Cheese Land as the best track, but where are the mousers, the moon and night setting from the original? ... and dont get me started with this character crossover nonsense, where are Diddy, B Jr, Dry bones and Birdo?



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.
