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.

Happy 4th of July. Now to hide inside for the rest of the day and wait till night fall to watch the fireworks.... On TV. Rainey weather this morning in NYC but now it looks dry as a bone. Like nothing happened. Still don't trust the weather though.



ultraraichu commented on We Can't Release Virtual Console Games Any Fas...:

I kind of figured the second part since whenever it comes to licenses, contracts, international ratings and all that bureaucracy mumbo jumbo, things can get long and messy when more parties are involved; the first part, bit surprised. Well if I had to pick between more old games or more new, then send me the new. There is so many ways to play old games but only one for new.

I guess Nintendo want to be the type of restaurant (figuratively) to make their food fresh instead of have it pre-made somewhere else and just reheat it, even if it doesn't matter to most customers (at the moment).



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo NX Will Avoid The Launch Issues Which...:

Well I have to give the people who do know about the NX credit for keeping quiet about it. In this age of technology it's hard to keep anything a secret. Tell one person out of the circle of truth a secret, 2 hours later half the world knows.

Looking back, Nintendo sells their systems best at launch when there is a blockbuster first party title (with a "new" experience) to go with it. Wii U had a lot of launch titles compared to its predecessor, but NSMB U and Nintendoland didn't have that same pulling power as something like Super Mario 64 or Luigi's Mansion and SSB: Melee (I know it release a month after).

In any case I like surprises so I can wait a year.



ultraraichu commented on ​Miiverse is Getting a Massive Redesign this...:

I like the look and sound of the Journal, could be a nice way to make a game guide, maybe have a tag for them too (hint hint). Hopefully this will make miiverse more organized since a good amount of users don't even know how to use tags like if they have a question for example.

I don't mind the 30 post limit since I don't spend that much time posting on any social media sites. Heck I don't think I even reach 30 post and comments on this site per day and this is my most talkative venue.



ultraraichu commented on Dark Pit amiibo Exclusive To Best Buy In North...:

Did expect that since we're only getting two amiibo this month. But then again they might be having the re-releases too so…. I got nothing. At least I can use my BB Card and reward points for this.

I'll go with what Hades said and say Pit (Dark Pit)is looking Goth.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo Confirms Splatoon Tower Mode Release ...:

Cool, too bad I don't play ranked battle since there's more on the line and the grade would annoy me to no end with trying to be the best or at least a B (too stressful).

Hope I can make it home in time to watch the Treehouse stream. Even if I'm not going to play it, I would love to see it in action.



ultraraichu commented on ​Shigeru Miyamoto Defends Star Fox Zero's Co...:

Sounds like a type of control I can get behind. Like those listed games and Wonderful 101, it wasn't that the controls are hard, it just different than what we're used to. It's like learning to play video games for the first time again. Once you get used to the new controls, it becomes second nature. I guess that's why the younger generation can adapt better to games like this than a good amount of people in my gen and maybe older (in my experience).

The only way I can think is too complex is when you a game that uses a lot of buttons for different things and/or crazy movements in-game with different button combo to execute certain moves like most fighting games.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo Gets Tough With Miiverse Bans, and So...:

I like it. Seriously don't know why some people create/ use another account just to repeat and/or complain the same thing that got them banned in the first place. It's like those pointless revolts on miiverse to show how mature we are but in reality it showed how immature those people can be and make those type of actions even more necessity.

I always imagine if a person have been mistakenly banned, the best option would be the contact support/admin directly and handle it in a mature manner (nintendo and every other social site), instead of crying and leading a rebellion on social media.



ultraraichu commented on Mario Parody Kill The Plumber Rejected From iO...:

I guess since he's a plumber with a mustache wearing a red hat and shirt in blue overall, it raise the red flag. All he need to do is change the occupation (maybe contractor) and clothing and it'll be safe with the other marioish games that is "currently" in the app store.

I do like the puzzle like gameplay it have. I'll be keeping an eye out for it when it comes out.



ultraraichu commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Tackles Metroid Prime: Federa...:

Well the only comparison I can see with Federation Force and Wind Waker is that both game were frowned upon before everyone had a chance to play it (WW gameplay would be easy for kids) and that it was different from its predecessor. Wish they would of left the "Prime" name out of it but I guess that is a stamp for any 1st person Metroid game, like "New Super" is for any modern side scrolling platform Mario game.

As for the amiibo, it would be rather dumb to hold back supply to create a large demand when a lot of buyers don't even need that incentive. Heck the ones that sells out the fastest are the ones that are used in the least amount of games or adds the least (minus Fire Emblem amiibo).
BTW Wii Fit Trainer is showing up in Gamestop stores, so that something.

Would be nice if stores like Target and Best Buy have the same shelf space that the other 2 toys to life have. They will need it if they plan to reach all the customers who wants them all that is not within the Mario series.

I learn the patterns already. Storm of hate, short moment of eye of love, then back into storm of hate. It happens a lot.



ultraraichu commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Approach to amiibo is In...:

Yeah I was hoping that during E3 they would of made an announcement stating that no amiibo will go out of production due to shelf space and show a list of restock amiibo. Something to put people minds at ease. Instead they announce the next wave and new series to raise panic levels.

I'll admit they have been restock, supply have been better (location may vary), and stores are doing a way better job of managing the amiibo and limiting sales per customers then in the past waves, but It still wouldn't change the minds of people who walks in and sees its current condition and compare it to the other 2 NFCs toys.



ultraraichu commented on Début Splatfest Postponed in North America :

Glad we weren't the Guinea pig for this. I can imagine it would of been global misfire x10 since its not a "demo", we pay money, took off for time, E3 and all that talk.

Awell I don't mind the wait, I'll just play Splatoon online the same way I always do.



ultraraichu commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Acknowledges the Need to Impr...:

For people who keeps a close eye what goes on in the amiibo world and remember past stocks, he speaks the truth. For everyone else, It all lies and/or empty words.

Like JaxonH said, it going to take patience. The real test of fate will come when the holiday seasons come back around.



ultraraichu commented on Ryu, Roy, New Stages and More Now Available in...:

I'm more excited about the Mii outfit, especially MegaMan.EXE (my favorite MegaMan series) than the new characters. I guess it's because the leaks suck the surprised out of it.

Even though I'm interested in like $14 worth of contents, I'm still going to spend $29.16 just to get more bang for my buck.



ultraraichu commented on Smash Bros. Presentation Confirms Ryu and Mii ...:

This holiday season is going to be fun yet chaotic with the new and restock amiibo coming out. Mewtwo and Roy to complete those series in the distant future and ZS Samus and Ganondolf for September. Maybe the Mii(s) if they can be used outside of Smash in a small unique way.

I also hear that Japan is getting a different design for ROB based on the Famicon design. That would be interesting to see how importing will go.



ultraraichu commented on Interview: Lilian "Milktea" Chen Talks Smash B...:

I like the approach she takes when it comes to sexism. It's one of the 2 isms that can set social media on fire if used in almost any way (like the comments with the 8 NWC finalist the other day). You can be right for the wrong reason or wrong for the right reason. Either way It will hit a button with people who have facts and/or personal experiences with the matter.

The power of free will in a "free" country.



ultraraichu commented on Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice Is Dashing To The Ninte...:

One thing I admire about the Sonic franchise is good or bad, it keeps moving forward with something new and not relying on re-release/remakes of older games (looks at Megaman). Starting to get harder to find in this gaming era.

In any case I hope it's a step up from the last one. Shame about not having a Wiiu version to correct their past mistakes, but with haters and burnt victims, I kind of see why.



ultraraichu commented on Disney Infinity Producer Brands amiibo Stock S...:

@TheAceofMystery I know but half of the comments here seems more geared towards Nintendo stock fault and management to a personal level and few comments that see it as something any company should avoid.

Also it doesn't help that Damien wrote "Speaking to Game Informer's Ben Hanson, Vignocchi had some choice words for Nintendo on the matter:"



ultraraichu commented on Guide: Use these Splatoon Tricks & Advanced Te...:

@Miko08 Same here, especially when they think they can sneak up from behind for an attack while you're shooting.

As for the wall, I find that barely tilting the left side up will keep you in the same spot. I normally hide in walls facing away their spawn point and unless they're real cautious (which I'm sure they will be now :P ), they would run by and try to ink your turf, rarely looking back.



ultraraichu commented on Guide: Use these Splatoon Tricks & Advanced Te...:

Even if the walls don't give you points or charge your gauge, it makes the purrfect hiding spot since most people don't think about inking walls (unless to climb to a platform) and they tend to focus more on the floor and opponents.

Well I just risk exposing myself with one of my favorite moves.



ultraraichu commented on Rumour: GameStop No Longer Taking amiibo Preor...:

Love the sound of that. Wish more places would do that as well if it's true. One thing about pre-orders is you can do it at different retail stores and online sites. So even if a store/site have 1 per customer, it doesn't mean they can't do it at another store/site when pre-orders becomes available to have more. Scalpers know what we know and than some making them smarter and more driven, at least this will makes it harder for them.



ultraraichu commented on Splatoon Ranked Battles Creep Closer as the 'S...:

It is a good way to have enough experience players playing at the same starting point compared to launch where only the people who got a head start playing online before street date and/or put in a lot of hours to reach 10+ and have a good rank.



ultraraichu commented on Amazon Confirms US amiibo Pre-Order Times for ...:

Since Lucina and Robin are the only 2 I haven't got a chance to preorder, they will be my target

Also this is a way better alternative than waiting on line with over 300 people for at least 8 hours for a midnight release (includes time it takes to reach store entrance). Time that is better spent playing Splatoon after the eshop release and relaxing.



ultraraichu commented on Humble Nindie Bundle Sells Over 37,000 Units i...:

That's pretty cool. I have to wait after the 29th to see if I have enough in my game budget (more accurately any left), but if I do I'll put in at least $25 since one of the game on the list I'm most interested in cost $15 and it's for a good cause.



ultraraichu commented on Pokémon Shuffle Brings Major Changes in Versi...:

I never used the home button cheat so I would of never known unless someone told me, but I am liking the heart update since I can also stock hearts obtained from Streetpass. Granted I tried it when I already have 5 hearts in the first segment, have to test it again when I don't.

^ I never had that problem on mine 3DS or my friends', so that's new to me.



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

@3dcaleb Yep. You need to go to the eshop and go to setting/ other (scroll to the far left top row). From there go to account activity and view receipt on Attack on Titan. The code is on the bottom of the receipt at which point it tell you to enter it on the Theme shop.

Hope that helps and enjoy.
