Day Late, Dollar Short Optimistic

Male, 26, United States

Nothing much to say. Been a Nintendo fan since I was 3 years old and I played and own every Nintendo system since the Nes. I am open to all types of video game styles and genre with limited exceptions to sports genre. An hardcore gamer but with a casual attitude.

@Quorthon Cool, I'll check that out later. Granted I'm not a fan of flappy bird like games but I like to learn a bit more about it.

As for the trust and respect part, that seems like a twist in words. He did state The Letter and IQ Test are top in the chart despite low review and those are games most would call crappy. That he wouldn't have done it 6 weeks ago but did so due to masses that buy those types of games. I don't think of it as a disrespect to us gamers here, just as a response for the one who are mostly likely not here (NL and other sites) that will toss $.49- $2 in a bucket. A different audience per se.

It would be messed up if this sold more then his other good/decent games (way worse case combine), in that case I will question the largely diverse Wii U community.



ultraraichu commented on Review: SPIKEY WALLS (Wii U eShop):

@Platypus101 @ejvirzi so far the two most sensible post I read. There have been games like this and worse in the Eshop for years, yet this get the most hate on NL to the point people take it too personal. At least we have more knowledge on the Eshop market front than the other developers who allegedly kept it secret.

Good or bad, cheap or expensive in price and/or quality, there is a game for everyone. After all, it seems like gamers on Miiverse enjoy playing it while we enjoy criticizing the creator.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo Reveals Details on the Third Week of ...:

If I didn't have 8 new games to beat/complete right now, I would of buy PMD: Gates to Infinity. A well better luck next week.

I am a bit puzzled that the mii fighters sale is Wii Fit U with the Trainer. Nintendoland, Wii party U, even the $39.99 Pilotwings Resort would of been more of a break away game for the sale.



ultraraichu commented on Review: SPIKEY WALLS (Wii U eShop):

Not my cup of tea since I dislike this type of gameplay. Well could be worse, he can be like Cypronia and charge $5 and $9 for a fruit ninja (cake ninja) and angry bunnies (angry bird) clone, yet we ignore that.

I am looking forward to his other games in the works. Maybe this game will help fund for the better projects.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo Shuts Down Screenshots in Mario & Lui...:

I can't blame the Admins for doing that, seems sensible from a legal and moral standpoint. I can blame the users who acts immature (adults included) and ruins the fun for the rest of us like with Swapnote, Kid Icarus Uprising board, and to some extent the Super Smash Bros board.



ultraraichu commented on Masahiro Sakurai Confirms Plans to Continue Su...:

That's nice. I been trying so hard not to go on sites and pages that may contain spoilers from the JP version of the game. I don't mind the drops of info from Sakurai but the instant pour from the web is too much.

Edit: Now I have to make sure not to read certain comments like I did just now -_-



ultraraichu commented on Feature: Ahead Of Hyrule Warriors, We Take A L...:

Love the Samurai Warrior series but I'm not big on Dynasty Warrior series. SW3 was the first warriors series I played and owned (no thanks to game reviews and others opinions) followed by Warriors Orchi 3 hyper. Hyrule Warriors will be my lucky 3.



ultraraichu commented on North America is Getting the Limited Edition o...:

Not surprised with the pre-order since they ran out of reserves same day Mario Kart 8 LE was annouced. They were still enough to go round for the non pre-order, but man, the line.

I guess its a lot better to explain to onlookers that this very long line is for a non free game you pay $20 extra (my guess) then normal retail price for a free scarf then a free toy when you're over the age of 18 and weather getting colder.

Awell, hope to get tons of streetpasses as a Brookynite.



ultraraichu commented on From the Forum: To Buy or Not to Buy? SPIKEY W...:

I don't mind budget games like this being on the Eshop since it adds variety and more options to the "different" gamers in the world with different views on what count as fun for less then the price of a hotdog.
I do get annoyed when gamers (mainly the elites) tells people what to buy and not to buy to send a message or to change the market to their ideal ways. Most of the time it's a minority group typing largely on behave of everyone, even the ones who don't know/ care that tend to speak with their wallet.

If you like it, buy it, maybe recommend it if you think the other person may like it too. If you dislike it, don't buy it, but at least keep an open mind that someone maybe interested in it. I normally recommend games to people based on their interest and personality and half of the times it's games I dislike.



ultraraichu commented on Wii U Shooter Splatoon Almost Starred Mario As...:

I have a feeling that 2/3 of these type of meetings involve mario being put in a game in some way, main, side, or easter egg.

I still have my suspicions with Olimar. Stubby man with a big nose pulling plant-like creature out the ground to throw at foe. Now if only he can jump.

Just realized, if you take out the L in Olimar and rearrange the letter a bit, you get Mario. The plot thickens.
Edit: Just did a seach on Olimar's name and that was the first fact to pop up. Now I just feel like a slow horse in a glue factory :P



ultraraichu commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Confidently Outlines Nintendo...:

Ya smart devices kind of wrecked up the "casual" audience with free games that is overly talked about with co-workers. Most of the "casual" gamers I know wouldn't even pay $0.99 for a game on their smarts devices.

I love core games so this is good news for me. With that said, I also love casual games. I hope they continue to focus some resources in making casual games for the gamers who like a change of pace every now and then, like Tomodachi life, Art Acedemy, and another American Test Kitchen.



ultraraichu commented on Tappingo 2 Release Pushed Back a Week on Ninte...:

Aww that's nice. Makes me wonder what other support Nintendo does behind the scene that we hardly know about. After all if Hugo Smits never post anything about this, people would of gone on another hate rant this week at Nintendo.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo Download: 28th August (North America):

Arceus Dam, this is a good week. I know I'll be downloading 5 of these paid games very soon, 6 if Wii U's RE: Revelations is a good discount price.

I been putting off on buying PW:AA Dual Destinies until I play the first 4 again to refresh my memory, but I guess now I buy it now and play it later.



ultraraichu commented on Miyamoto States That Nintendo Is Sticking With...:

I'm always happy Nintendo is doing their own thing with unque hardware. It changes up the constant mentality of looks, power, and large numbers is supreme.

I always find it weird that gamers have a hard time with the gamepad. Especially the same ones with enought hand-eye coordination to pull off complex moves, combos, and finishers in fighting games and creativty to find new ways to beat a level, can't glance off the tv screen for one second.



ultraraichu commented on Capcom Is Suing Koei Tecmo For Patent Infringe...:

I'm more surprised no one made a Ace Attorney reference till now. I mean Capcom, courtroom, and the fan's murdered fate in the company, it just screams "Take That!"

I didn't know that first one can even be patent. I thought that was a feature any developers can use, unless it's a special way. I guess Capcom will be sniping companies like Sega and Nintendo next.



ultraraichu commented on Talking Point: The Pokémon Trading Card Game ...:

As someone who play the TCG online (PC & Mac) and real life, I can say this is more then welcoming news.

For one thing it help raising more awareness for the game since it's been out for more then 4 years on a non-Nintendo platform yet people react to the app like this is a first and they sell out.
Also this might also get more people to buy the real TCG since their version of in-app purchase (optional) is buying a new theme deck/ booster pack and entering the code online for a digital version of the cards.

At least soon I'll be able play it anywhere and not in one place



ultraraichu commented on The Pokémon Trading Card Game Is Coming To iP...:

I take it by some of the reactions here that people never played the TCG online for PC and Mac that's been on the official site for years.
I hoped for a Wii U version, but the 3ds? That seems Farfetch'd. Well as long as I don't have to use a mouse anymore to play and uses functional touch controls (lot of bugs on touch screen PC), I'm good.



ultraraichu commented on Mario Kart 8 Passes One Million US Sales as Wi...:

It's times like this that makes me wonder if this much retail copies got sold, how much got sold digitally? I can imagine it would be just as much since Iwata said more customers are accessing the internet with their Wii U and 3ds.



ultraraichu commented on Charming Zelda-Themed Carry Case Appears on Eu...:

Good for EU, it nice they get something nice for a change. Some NA gamers don't know how good we have (had?) it.

I'll pass if it comes to NA. Looks nice but I know it's something I'll just have to brag (to nobody) and not use.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo Download: 14th August (North America):

I guess Scram Kitty is worth a shot for that price.
Even though I love the Megaman Battle Network series, I can't in good fate recommend Battle Chip Challenge. Pretty much just read, setup the battle chips, and watch them fight, that's mostly it. Way different gameplay.



ultraraichu commented on The Letter Version 1.1 Update Has a New Trailer:

I end up biting at the $0.49 price. I'll hold off on playing it till they (he?) release the next update(s), I want it at its best.
I have to give him credit for the level of commitment to the game and the interaction with the gamers on Miiverse. Here's hoping it get better from here and don't get left as is.



ultraraichu commented on Mega Slowbro and Mega Audino Leaked for Pokém...:

That Mega Slowbro made me lol, especially the look on its face. It's like he/she egged off Shellder and said "you want a piece of me", to which Shellder reply "I don't want a piece, I want the whole thing" Mega Evolve.

Mega Audino looks nice. I would figure based on the description, it would have an ability that will have a 1/3 chance of putting the opponent to sleep with contact moves.



ultraraichu commented on The Console Wars Live On As Night Trap Remake ...:

Wow, now I'm not sure what's public funded campaign is worse. Developers holding a 20 year grudge for a HD remake of a poor game or gamers who hold a 20 year grudge for a poor game that is now being made to be different, modern, and better then its predecessor (Shaq Fu). Guess I'll know in 28 days.



ultraraichu commented on The Trending #WiiUDroughtAid Shows That, Actua...:

This always give me time to catch up on my backlog so it never really bothers me. I just start playing Batman Arkham City: AE a few days ago. Got it since launch, never played it till now. So far I put in 60+ hours into it and I'm only at 59% and I haven't even play new game+.

Makes me wonder if the "gamers" who complains about droughts really play games to the fullest, play part way then move to the next, or just talks about games.



ultraraichu commented on Capcom Releases Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney -...:

I'm not too surprised. Ever since the GCN era with Viewiful Joe and Resident Evil 4, I begin to realize that most of Capcom games is either none existent on Nintendo's platform but on others, or is timed exclusive. I got my eyes on you Monster Hunters.

Fingers crossed they have a discount on the eshop for the game. I will get it for the 3ds in due time but less would be more convenient.
