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 Talking Point: Nintendo's Ability to Charm You...:

I think I live on the other side of the fence when it comes to parents and kids with some of the comments. In my RL experience most adults and parents (25 and over) don't play games as much as I do or even at all. Either they didn't have it growing up or they grow out of it for a more "productive" use of their time. Either way they get it for their children more so than themselves. The kids I know between 5-13 cares more if the game is fun compared to is it violent or if the graphic are nice if peer pressure is not a factor compared to the older gamers.

All in all, I like that Nintendo stick to what its been doing for years, making games that Everyone can play and enjoy, kids to adults even if it sometimes have a T rating. Games like Nintendoland may seem kiddy but getting all the medal would make you think different.



ultraraichu commented on Link amiibo Compatibility Confirmed for Hyrule...:

My my this game is full of surprises. First I discovered that certain non-boss enemies are weak to certain sub weapons like Aeralfos to hookshot when flying, now this. I wasn't planning to get a link amiibo but now this news peak my curiousity.



ultraraichu commented on Weirdness: Sony Fan Creates Petition In Hope O...:

In a weird way, it's a nice complement to Nintendo games. Underpowered but quality games. I guess it's better then the more media popular alternative, powerful but lackluster.

Odd that he says Nintendo have a monopoly on these type of games when said games are imitated by other companies quite often.



ultraraichu commented on Super Smash Bros. Fans Teased Further by New M...:

Now I'm even more suspicious about the two modes. I understand Master (blank) might be the more traditional fighting but what is it about Crazy (blank) that calls for that "how to play" on the icon. Perhaps a different style of gameplay?



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo Download: 2nd October (North America):

Weak week for downloads, smart move. With Smash Bros on the scene with a midnight release to boot, I wouldn't be surprised if other games get overlooked. Glad I'm getting this a download because the cartridge wouldn't leave my system for other games.



ultraraichu commented on Hyrule Warriors Limited Edition Sparks Huge Nu...:

I have since it's only a train ride away. Short answer, epic fail. I think you would of have to be on line before 3:30 am to get a LE copy. Too bad I made it at 5:30 am on a holiday. I guess there always the imitation Cosplay scarf on eBay I can get for $25+.



ultraraichu commented on Wii U Version of Watch Dogs to Miss Out on DLC:

I hope they mean there is no dlc because it's already in there. It would be real suspicious if they delay a game months after other platforms received it just to be compatible with the GamePad. Even more suspicious during the time when there is a lot of holiday competition.



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

@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.
