Day Late, Dollar Short Optimistic

Male, 27, 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.

If Nintendo followers can have this type of reaction from a tweet that imply nothing (more so the deleted one), I can only imagine people around Miyamoto, since he gets ideas for games based on his life experience. Good thing he doesn't have a twitter account, or at least one that the public knows about.



ultraraichu commented on Star Fox Zero Delayed To Achieve a "Platinum F...:

Kind of reminds me of The Wonderful 101 launch window delay. I sometimes imagine if it was released as schedule, the game would have less unite morphs since imo Wonder Yellow, White, and Black don't have much of an active role and presence like the other 4.

Anyways, I can't deny delays for improvements since it better in the long run. Beside there are already Nintendo games out now that can distract people for hundreds of hours, most recent one being Super Mario Maker.

I know I have my eyes on Kicks when he comes Stateside since he is one of my favorite Animal Crossing characters.

I would be getting AC: amiibo Festival but that's mostly because that's the only way to get Isabelle and Digby (other 2 favorites).



ultraraichu commented on Review: Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer (...:

Nice review. Just like I view the main series Animal Crossing games as a casual life sim game with no challenges or goals besides the ones you make for yourself, is the same way I see this game but as a casual management sim. Same core, different sub-genre.

I never notice until now. I guess it's because I have played the competitive stage yet and I haven't surf the web in a few days. I hope it's possible to perma ban them from connecting with their NNID. Ruining the fun for the rest of us that play legit and spend hours to get to where we are. Plus it's not like they're paying customers.

The dumb part is, they just made themselves an easier target to weed out unlike the ones who play it safe and stay offline.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo Download: 17th September (North America):

SENRAN KAGURA 2: Deep Crimson but later when it's on sale for half the current price. Would be a waste buy it now full price and not play it due to other games taking my free time. Also I still have yet to beat the first one for the same reason.



ultraraichu commented on More Than A Million Super Mario Maker Levels H...:

I made a few stages so far but I upload 0. My local test group think it's good but I don't think it's good enough to show off to the world, I'm my own worst critic. Also I haven't played any uploaded stages but I'll check the forum here this weekend to see what's up.

I take this as a good thing. Nintendo's gameplay mechanics is becoming more well known in the same way Mario (platform and racing), Zelda, Metroid, Smash, Brain Age, and so many of their franchise have been used in other games.

One can say copy while another can say inspired depending on who created the game.



ultraraichu commented on Apple Just Announced Its Own Wii, Almost A Dec...:

Looks and sounds like the new Apple TV is just a Amazon Fire TV and Google Nexus player with motion controls and a bit more social voice feature, but since it's Apple people (less tech savvy) will think it's revolutionary like always.

I like my Apple TV I got as a gift but I wish they would have more varieties in apps like the others.



ultraraichu commented on Review: Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI DX (3DS):

I enjoy the demo so I know I'll really enjoy the full game when it comes out. I just got to make sure not to play Theatrhythm Final Fantasy directly before or after playing this game since the play style is almost similar.



ultraraichu commented on Itagaki Accepts "Fair" Devil's Third Criticis...:

That why I respect NL's review on the game, the very least they held off on the score until they played the multiplayer in a more open and populated environment.

I tend to side more with the gamers that owns and put in some good hours playing a game thoroughly vs a reviewer that play rush a review copy to post a review asap.



ultraraichu commented on Production Of Shovel Knight amiibo Is Being Ha...:

@Splatburst The funny part about that is last friday, certain users complain about the amiibo storage and the limited Splatoon 3-pack, while at the same time target was having a restock online of the hard to find ones (including the Splatoon 3-pack), their store exclusives, and preorders of the 9/11 release.

Some just love to complain instead of just play.



ultraraichu commented on Production Of Shovel Knight amiibo Is Being Ha...:

That's cool. It's so weird seeing a indie studio raising up the rank to the point they are handling amiibo. I don't think even Capcom, Namco Bandai, or Sega handled it to that extent with their amiibo characters. Way to stand out and get recognized in the indie world.

Hopefully the average joe and clueless internet wouldn't view it as Nintendo's doing and management regardless of the info at hand.



ultraraichu commented on Review: Devil's Third (Wii U):

From Nintendolife scoring policy:
"A five is where you really need to start wondering if this game is for you. We are saying this game is average in our own subjective opinion. You have to judge for yourself if you are so attracted to this game's concept that you are going to take a chance on it anyway. We'll always give our reasons to show why the game failed to impress."

Just to let people know to keep an open mind and that 5 is not a automatic fail, leave that to the 4s and below . Also still jealous NA still have to wait until December to play it.

Btw is online play regional or global?



ultraraichu commented on Shovel Knight amiibo Confirms "Evolving" Relat...:

It's weird that now I'm interested in the game once they annouce an amiibo for it. I bet quite a few commenters have the opposite reaction though.

Speaking of which, it seem as if certain groups of people would complain about amiibo just for its very existence. When there's minor features, people say it's useless. When the featured became a bit more useful, people call them money grabbers. When they become hard to find, people think their out of print and don't keep an eye for restock like the Splatoon 3-pack at Target right now.

Granted there is also people here that voice good opinions for amiibo, uses, and availability. To them, thank for keeping the scale balanced and from saving me from retypes.

As long as each amiibo is utilize in someway in more future games (and past) and not just lock to one or two, I'm happy. That's where I see the value.



ultraraichu commented on Review: Devil's Third (Wii U):

Nice review. It kind of reminds me of Splatoon in the sense that it seems more attention is paid to online multiplayer than single player. I don't mind since that will be my main mode when the game. I am looking forward to playing it 4 months after the other 2 main regions master it.

I also like to hear more about the Siege mode when you guys get more time playing it in a larger group. I'm curious to know how much people can play at one time.



ultraraichu commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against am...:

@fed0ra7 I'm mostly bothered by the comments that complains about the current stock issue like it was wave 1-3. It leave the impression for other readers not into amiibo that almost all of them are sold out in minutes and seconds with no restocks instead of hours and days with restocks like the ones now (excluding Robin, Lucina, and Splatoon 3 pack atm).

A good example is the exclusive Retro 3-pack pre-order at Gamestop still being available.



ultraraichu commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against am...:

I'll have to side with Thomas on this one since most of his reasons I agree with, especially the line "only buying those I simply must own" and "so I don't have them. Never mind, life goes on, I can live without it". Something I learned after wave 3 and fully realized when my go to store had Ness and Fox and I didn't buy either of them.

It can start out as something small with a "rational" excuse as amiibo (hard to find and scalpers) but it also shows the possibilities of moving to something bigger like Disney Infinity and Skylanders. "Why pay X amount of money to play/unlock something that's in the game, when I can use this and get it for free" will be the growing mentality.



ultraraichu commented on Weirdness: Dancing Electric Rodents Infest The...:

Dam those Pikachus got the moves (got me smiling and laughing the whole time in a good/childish way), especially the sailor Pikachus and the Pikachu with the cap. To pull off those movements in a costume like that must take a lot of energy and coordination.



ultraraichu commented on McDonald's Happy Meal Boomerang Mario In UK Ta...:

This would be normal everyday news if this was a US Tabloid, but I'm surprised this is from the UK. Then again UK also have The Sun, so I shouldn't be that surprised

Glad McDonald's and/or Nintendo didn't take it serious to the point of doing something like recalling the toy. It only takes a spark to start a fire.



ultraraichu commented on What Can be Said About This SENRAN KAGURA 2: D...:

I still can't help but feel that they mix up the collector edition names during the creation process. You're telling me the one that also comes with a comfy mousepad that would put a smile to guys (and some girls) faces isn't the Happy Boob edition? Kind of misleading.



ultraraichu commented on The Piracy of amiibo Now Seems Possible With t...:

On one hand I want to be against this due to the sense of piracy, yet on the other hand most people who cares about amiibo or amiibo and games would just get the figurine. Even the "rare" ones are easier to get now at msrp if you know how to shop and follow updates, or at least be patient.

I would just be complaining for the sake of complaining.

Times like this reminds me how destructive social media can be for people lives especially when you're a somebody and/or work for a big company. I wish him the best. I hope the knowledge he spread about localization wouldn't go to waste in the coming days.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo's Awesome Super Mario Maker Overview ...:

Feel a bit guilty for saying this but the amiibo feature is what driving me to buy this game mostly. Even more so if there is a feature we don't know yet that lets you play as any amiibo you own on a stage someone else made with no mystery mushroom.



ultraraichu commented on Weirdness: Female UFC Champ Was A Huge Pokémo...:

A good way to if she still is a fan is if she can name any 3 non starters from the current gen
All in all I'm just glad everyone like/love games and don't necessarily have to fit into the stereotype.

"Maybe they should invent a "death mode" where you win for coming up with the most creative way of killing your player" Reminds of the adult swim game "5 minutes to kill yourself". You can pretty much guess the goal of the game.
