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.

ultraraichu commented on Miiverse Update Allows Screenshots As Favourit...:

Great update, I'm already taking advantage of it with my Tomodachi Life personality as my favorite screenshot post and my favorite boards. Would be interesting having an update that allows you to show off the games you play/own.



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

Fair enough. I was too shocked by Robin and Lucina being in the game, I didn't even care about poor Chrom at the end. Got 1 too many blue hair swordsman from a series as it is.

Overall I'm happy with the roster even before this news and I'll still be happy long after the next character reveal, even if it's not a Raichu (jealous of Pichu spotlight in melee).



ultraraichu commented on Review: One Piece Unlimited World Red (Wii U):

An ok review but it's missing a few key points (like the arena mode), mainly the Wii U features.
1) The Wii U GamePad screen is only used for off-screen play. Which means that you wouldn't get touch controls on your inventory or a map like the 3ds version.
2) There is a feature that you can data link with the 3ds to copy your save file over to have it on both systems.
3) The game have local multiplayer with 2 people in which you can play the story stages as well (3ds have 4p local but can only play missions). But it's picture & picture splitscreen only on the TV, so no GamePad/ TV personal screen. Also player 2 is invincible so that too.

I guess this can be put in a comparison article after the 3ds review of the game to help people decide.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo Download: 10th July (North America):

One Piece Unlimited World Red for Wii U since I already downloaded it yesterday. Would of been Tuesday buy you know Eshop problem and all that.

A bit disappointed with the way they handle the Wii U version though. It seem like they ported it from the PS3 version instead of work off the 3DS version since it lacks the second screen features.



ultraraichu commented on Tomonubu Itagaki Thinks Gamers Will Buy A Wii ...:

Sure I think so. I seen and know people who buy a system because of one game. This can be one of the few 3rd (2nd?) party game on the Wii U that can drive system sales. I just hope it doesn't end up like The Wonderful 101, that should of been a system seller IMO.

I just love the confidents the team show for their game. Most 3rd party developer and publishers worry and complain about current install base instead of creating one and increasing it because of their game now a days. This is a breath of fresh air.



ultraraichu commented on British Tabloid The Sun Brands Gaming "As Addi...:

"The report has been published in today's edition of the tabloid, and can be read online here behind a pay wall."
Ya... that is the worse bait to pay (even if it's a month free trial) I seen in a long while. Still a good laugh.

In any case heroin is an extreme compare. Maybe chocolate or even gambling, but heroin? Might as well compare bullying to accepted murder to get more views.



ultraraichu commented on Controversy Arises at U.S. Pokémon Nationals ...:

If the only thing that's off is the pokeball but everything else is legit, then I don't see the problem. I'm just saying this based on that most players either hack, want to trade for a hack, or want to trade for a "legal" pokemon that just happen to have 5-6 IV and may or may not be unbreedable and/or rare. From there you can breed, inherent, and say it's legit.

The only one I can confidently exclude is the people who don't know about IV values and such and use their own pokemon. Everyone else I have my doubts (I'm no exception).



ultraraichu commented on The Legend of Korra Turn-Based SRPG Bending it...:

Wait a sec, Book 3 is already out? Anywho wish it was a action game, a SRPG seems like something more fitting a air bender ;)

There's a LoK game being made by Platinum Games? When did this happened?

@Phantom_R Thanks for the heads up. I dont watch Nickelodeon since they mostly show live shows and spongebob (granted I watch Nicktoons), so I would never know till after the showing.



ultraraichu commented on Awesome New Hyrule Warriors Trailers Show Link...:

The more I see, the more I want. I can already think of the cheesy battle puns I'll use defeating the enemies.

Now the big 2 questions is who's the other characters in the game and would the west see that nice treat at the end?



ultraraichu commented on Animal Crossing 'Clone', Castaway Paradise, Co...:

If Ittle Dew (recent example) made it to other platforms and Wii U with its similarity to legend of Zelda, I don't see the problem with this. If it does come for the Wii U I hope they get rid of the f2p and just have the one time price.



ultraraichu commented on Mercedes DLC Confirmed for Mario Kart 8 in the...:

It weird how Wario's car is a Cadillac Eldorado and everyone (the haters that is) don't bat a eye yet they complain about this. I guess Nintendo need to change the name and remove the logo to fit the universe.

Any who, I'm just happy we are getting free dlc that remains the same as the eastern counterpart.

Edit: found a image of a Cadillac Eldorado FYI



ultraraichu commented on This Is Where Unwanted 3DS And DS Games Go To Die:

A bunch of iCarly inside a gayload, there's a sentence I thought I'll never say in my life.... I'll stop snickering now.

I can't help but imagine how it feel to be a gamer and have that much cartridges in front of you (even if it is the same). Scrooge Mcduck comes to mind.



ultraraichu commented on New Japanese Law Bans Child Abuse Images, Yet ...:

I was watching this on CNN a while ago. I thought it was already illegal to own but I guess I got it confuse with commit.

For the most part I'm relived that they didn't cross the line between real and fiction in the law, though the American reporter seem completely disgusted with the anime/ manga shop. If it did, they would be a lot more people in jail. Plus if they're anything like the youths of America, they would be a ton of fines with the parents.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo Needs To Cut Wii U Cost To Capitalise...:

I don't see any problem with the price. For $300 you get 1-2 free games with the console with is better then none. I normally see weekly sale at stores that would give you $20-50 off/ gift card with a Wii U purchase. You can even get a refurbished Wii U which still comes with Nintendoland for $200. So I don't see how price cut will help.

I remember when ubisoft as well as other 3rd party was interested in competing with other similar games on the consoles (even 1st party games) instead of trying to make excuses and playing it safe. Even if the Wii U sells a bunch of consoles, you still have to create or publish games that gives customers the incentive to buy yours over the competitors on the same system, or at least with the competitors. At the end of the day, it's about making good quality games that people will buy.
Edit: and some fairness wouldn't be too much to ask for as well to built gamers' moral.



ultraraichu commented on Guide: The Biggest Wii U and 3DS Retail Games ...:

Thanks for making the list. Made my game planning easier to set up so I'm financially ready, at least from the retail end.

To be honest, I am jelly with EU getting games weeks and months ahead of NA, especially with Pokemon Art Academy and Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright. Patience is a virtue I guess so I'll play other games till then.



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

Good point Wesbert. That haven't even crossed my mind. The social media always trys to take a stab at Nintendo controversy. Racist Mario Kingdom, Tomodachi life non same sex marriage, child labor at Wii U factory, Pokemon (Jynx, male Gardevoir & Gothitelle, etc.), to name a few. I can imagine a race war controversy in the making.



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

At least you can still play them in single and local multiplayer. I don't mind the online side since I can imagine people's reaction in overusing them, you can still use them with friends online, and the list of current fighters is already good enough to be used online on their own merits.



ultraraichu commented on Don't Worry, Nintendo Hasn't Forgotten About T...:

I understand that it must be work emulating a game to work legally on a system compared to the other method that 3/4 of us knows but not allowed to discuss. Combine with the legal side such as copyrights, publishing, etc., I can see why it would take time.

With that said, I wish they can focus more on N64 games. Out of all the Nintendo consoles, the N64 is the only one I owned/played the least games to. Mischief Makers and Mystical Ninja starring Goemon would be nice especially when they have Goemon for the snes and (sign) gameboy VC.



ultraraichu commented on E3 2014: Intelligent Systems Will Reveal New A...:

Got to love Nintendo fans. They will complain about recycling the same IP and demand a new one. Give them a new one or two and they complain about not getting remake or worse a re-release of a game that is not hard to find and play.

Back on track, as long as those games is up in the air for them in the future, I don't mind the wait. This year E3 have given me enough to hold me over for a long time.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo Download: 12th June (North America):

Nice to see Inazuma Eleven is half off. It's a good RPG game, although I would admit I hated it at first.

I'm on the fence with Resident Evil Revelations. I dislike Zombie horror genres but my gf loves watching me play it (evil witch). I was wondering if this game have motion controls similar to RE4 (Wii remote) and/or Zombi U (GamePad)?



ultraraichu commented on E3 2014: Wii U eShop Version of Bayonetta 2 Do...:

Cool news. Even though I never played the 1st one, I'll still get this game even if it wasn't planned. After all it wouldn't be the first game (especially Wii U) I never played the prequel(s) to.

With that said, I am looking forward to playing the 1st Bayonetta. Quite optimistic on a digital bundle ish thing.



ultraraichu commented on Guide: Sharing The Love With The Tomodachi Lif...:

After playing the move-in demo, I downloaded the full game. So that means I got 2 NA code to share. Feel free to reply so I can email you the code to be on the safe side.

On a slightly unrelated note, I was shocked that my mii likes and dislikes the same food I do in real life. It's one thing it got my personality perfectly, but a weird coincidence it knows that with the +15 food I give mii.



ultraraichu commented on Poll: Your Favourite Showing from Nintendo Dur...:

Splatoon at the top of my list. I'm excited about all the others especially Smash Bros. (only saw the final match of the invitational due to playing catch up with the digital event), but that game got me off guard with a kiss from behind with the gameplay.



ultraraichu commented on Feature: Our Hopes and Dreams for E3 2014:

Any news I don't know about and game releases is on my wish list. As long as it's new and/or make good use of the system's features, they can lay out whatever surprises they have up their sleeves. I like the old E3 surprise.



ultraraichu commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Patch The Controversial ...:

It seems like a tiny exploit compared to other techniques over the years. Something like snaking got most of the racers playing online as dry bones in tanks on particular courses that gives them draft boost on straightaways. This give them at least 10x the advantage and time shaved compared to fire hopping.

As long as players don't have to limit themselves due to a exploit in order to win, I'm cool either way.
