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 Weirdness: A Fox amiibo Placed Rather Well in ...:

Wow that Fox play more aggressively than my Kirby. Granted my Kirby is a good fighter (hate to admit it), it's just more of the cautious type. I wonder if it have to do with stats distribution or learning to adapt to the opponent play style. Maybe both?



ultraraichu commented on Soapbox: Sonic, It's Time to Talk:

Nice article, been awhile since we had a soapbox one.

I always got to give points to Sonic for changing up the formula at times to keep things new. One of my top 3 favorite Sonic games is one of the most frown upon on the internet forum but is different then the classic. With that said, I always notice the free roaming 3d Sonic games fall short compared to the more linear ones. Most due to camera control.

The best power SEGA like other old video games companies have is nostalgia. I notice it mostly with Sonic 4 episode 1 in this case. As long as you make it the kids of yesterday like it, you're good. Remember adults are more choosey with video games than kids.



ultraraichu commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Wii U):

I was expecting an 9.5 but since NL don't do half stars, I rounded up to a 10 in personal expectations. But 9 seems understandable from a public standpoint.
The stage builder have protential with the Gamepad interface but is quite unforgiving with the platform drawing placement and no sharing. Also it is weird that you need a sd card for snapshots.

Nice to know about the online play. I haven't try that mode yet.



ultraraichu commented on Weirdness: Super Smash Bros. amiibo Modificati...:

I am loving the looks of those modmiibos (hoping that term will kick off). I would love to have my Pikachu amiibo with goggles too since that's the in-game look I use.

Saw some of T-man miiverse post. The graphics looks flat (lol) but the freakiest one have to be between long legs Charizard and that demon Ness.



ultraraichu commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U GameCube Controlle...:

I knew I forgot to look for something on my Friday shopping run. No big lost even though I wanted more for my DDR games then Smash Bros. I rather wait for as long as it take for a restock then pay more than msrp from other sellers, especially that much.



ultraraichu commented on Details Uncovered of Upcoming Update for Zelda...:

An increase in level cap, darn. The only character I have at the max level (Fyi it's lvl 99 in case anyone is still wondering) is Link. Everyone else average around 68.

I hope the new potions include a mix to increase The chances of finding materials over weapons in a battle. Still need to increase a lot of people's skills.



ultraraichu commented on Out Now: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, amiibo a...:

Got My Smash bros downloaded, even with all the tempting offers getting it physical and 7 Amiibos thanks to toysrus 3 for $30 sale and a 15% off coupon making each one $8.50; except the 7th which I got someplace else.

Normally I will get Pokémon games around the first week unless there's a sale later on, but this year I Guess I have to make an exception because of Bayonetta, Fantasy life, Smash Bros 3ds/WiiU, and Hyrule Warriors taking my time.



ultraraichu commented on Sakurai Explains Why Ridley Is Not A Playable ...:

Well damed if he do and damed if he don't when it comes to the fans choice(like mii fighter and mewtwo). Best not to, that way they don't have to spend extra time balancing the game and not the post game type updates either.

The team already earn their medal for effort



ultraraichu commented on Wii U eShop Title Meme Run Seals Approval To R...:

So this is what happens when a person spend too much time on the bad side of the web. They go and create something like this out of crazed madness. Well I guess I can't blame a game who's very existence is to troll people. I'll just do like I do with trolls here; watch but don't feed.



ultraraichu commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Wii U):

I like this type of review. Long, Informative, and no score. Makes the reader come to their own conclusion on if the game is right for them or not based on the contents. Nice read, shame on the stage builder though. Still on my day 1 list.

In the meantime, I'll just have fun imagining people on the internet freaking out for a number. Take your time…. for review accuracy of course :)



ultraraichu commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

Personally I'll give it a B; not taking into account sales and missing multiplatform games. Miiverse and eshop have been improving in a good way, especially with the digital sales and price drops in the eshop. Also I enjoy 12 out of the 15 games I got this year and if techicality allows will enjoy 2 more being released this year. The only part that lowered the grade for me is the support for the Tvii, with the dvr (or just the touch remote feature), getting rid of the Hulu, Netflix, and amazon video support and less tagline support on shows. Also an app like a media player or the photo viewing feature like in the 2011 E3 would be nice.

FYI I was going to rate it a C but after seeing the hours I put in the system and the games over the months, I knew I enjoy it more then I thought.



ultraraichu commented on Shulk amiibo Listed as GameStop Exclusive in t...:

Another one of Gamestop sick jokes I see. Maybe they'll get a limited amount because Shulk is not a familar character and wouldn't be sure if he will sell as much as the more traditional ones. Tough luck for the late birds.

Wait why am I even getting wild up, I wasn't even planning to get Shulk. I guess I got caught up with the rarity and memory of the origin game. My treasure hunting side can get the best of me sometimes.



ultraraichu commented on Wii U System Update 5.3.0 Adds amiibo Settings:

That's cool they're touching ground before the release, set to play from the get go.

I'm not bothered by the data limit on the amiibo right now since only one that we know of currently will use the read and write. I'll worry like the rest when the time comes and there is no system backup or alt. amiibos for the 2nd software that utilize the two.



ultraraichu commented on Target and Best Buy Nintendo Deals Live Now, K...:

I went the Bestbuy route and got Fantasy Life and Luigi Mansion: Dark Moon along with 2 blu-rays on sale and a $35 eshop card to buy and download Fantasy life for myself. Save some more with my best card and rewards.

Funny how they discounted the more expensive game (FL 39.99 to 20) instead of the cheaper game (LM:DM 34.99) when I checked out. Wish they do that more often :)



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo Teams Up With Loot Crate To Deliver a...:

Never heard of Lootcrate until today so that would be something I have to look into.

I was only planning to get between 4-7 from the first 2 waves but if Lootcrate works out the same or even cheap than the stores, I'll subscribe.



ultraraichu commented on Review: Flapp & Zegeta (Wii U eShop):

If only it was $0.49, it may of scored a point or two higher but $5, that's more crazy than the game concept itself. As long as no one raise awareness by creating a forum topic about bashing the game and creator like another similar game, it can unnoticeably rest in peace.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo Black Friday Deals Reveal New 3DS and...:

Beat the heck out of Sears black friday sale. They'll have the 2ds for the same price but the catch is you'll have to also buy one of three of their selected title; Mario Kart 7, Super Smash Bros, or Pokemon Y (maybe X is included as a choice?)



ultraraichu commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:

The only third party games I dislike missing out on is those Jrpg and anime niche games that the other 2 systems get. But as long as the Wii U keep having games I would play and enjoy, I cant complain on what it doesn't have.
There's only so much free time one person have.



ultraraichu commented on Every Smash Bros amiibo Will Be Compatible Wit...:

Big and small, I am still loving the approach Nintendo is taking with Amiibos. It's not a necessity like similar NFCs, but if you have it you get a bonus. No "obligation"

Wishful thinking that the materials are gold class and the weapons are powerful 8-slot empty ones.



ultraraichu commented on Feature: What We Want to See in the November N...:

Most of the other choices are just a matter of patience so my vote is for the WiiU Deluxe DDP.
They can extend it or better yet announce its end but in the usual nintendo twist begin a new promotion that is more directly incorporated in the WiiU system that automatically adding the points to your account. At least this way other people will know it exist.



ultraraichu commented on Feature: Does Super Smash Bros. Wii U's Smash ...:

Something tells me I'm going to enjoy playing smash tour alot more then the adventure mode in melee and brawl. Although I tolerate adventure mode in melee for the trophies and explore Subspace Emissary for the story, world, and exploration once I was done with them, I was done. I just stick to the regular battles even in solo.
I can find myself going back to this when I'm long done with it. Especially if you can collect powers, trophies, and other stuffs for customization like in smash run (can you?).



ultraraichu commented on Pikachu Takes Centre Stage at Macy's Thanksgiv...:

Nice to see Pikachu is rocking a new look this year. Surprised Sonic is not in the pic too.

I'm anyways too lazy to see it in person (crowd and train ride is quite the turn off), so there's a 90% chance I'll watch it on tv again.



ultraraichu commented on Collectors Be Warned, Some amiibo Figures Will...:

Funny, after reading this, the first amiibo that come to mind for me to rush and pre-order is Wii Fit Trainer. I'm thinking the more recognizable mainsteam characters like Mario and friends will stay stocked while Marth and Cap. Falcon maybe more limited.

Awell people can still pre-order the ones they want so I'm still optimistic about the current supplies.



ultraraichu commented on Tournament Players Pass Judgement On 8-Player ...:

I think 4 vs 4 will be very interesting to play and watch. Another way to test your hand eye coordination under pressure and maintain focus against mulitiple opponents at once. Let's see how the "pros" what handled this change of pace.



ultraraichu commented on Review: Just Dance 2015 (Wii U):

Seeing as I got every other main series Just Dance games minus the 1st one, it's likely I'll get this too. it's only a matter of buying it full price or wait for a digital sale based on the "new" features.



ultraraichu commented on Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind Loo...:

Funny story, I was talking with my brother about this and the live action movie (interested to see how they're going to cast the actors lol) 4 days ago and he ask if the game is coming westside. My short answer, yes. Glad to know my lie become true.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd October (North America):

Too many games I want to get, so little time, especially since I have been drowning in Hyrule Warriors and Super Smash Bros to even look at another one of my games.

I will download Bayonetta, Fantasy Life, Pokemon Art Academy, Castle Conqueror Ex, and maybe Just Dance 2015 if it have a good amount of songs I like but later in the future. Maybe after I complete Hyrule Warriors which will take weeks (no complains).

I hope best buy will have another eshop card sale in the near future again.



ultraraichu commented on Feature: Five 'New Things' We Want in Super Sm...:

I'm good with any since I know the game will be jammed packed full of contents that will leave me logging in with +1000 playtime like with the past 2.

I voted amiibo since variety is the spice of life to get your favorite character(s) from/for you favorite game(s).
