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 Tappingo 2 Release Pushed Back a Week on Ninte...:

Aww that's nice. Makes me wonder what other support Nintendo does behind the scene that we hardly know about. After all if Hugo Smits never post anything about this, people would of gone on another hate rant this week at Nintendo.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo Download: 28th August (North America):

Arceus Dam, this is a good week. I know I'll be downloading 5 of these paid games very soon, 6 if Wii U's RE: Revelations is a good discount price.

I been putting off on buying PW:AA Dual Destinies until I play the first 4 again to refresh my memory, but I guess now I buy it now and play it later.



ultraraichu commented on Miyamoto States That Nintendo Is Sticking With...:

I'm always happy Nintendo is doing their own thing with unque hardware. It changes up the constant mentality of looks, power, and large numbers is supreme.

I always find it weird that gamers have a hard time with the gamepad. Especially the same ones with enought hand-eye coordination to pull off complex moves, combos, and finishers in fighting games and creativty to find new ways to beat a level, can't glance off the tv screen for one second.



ultraraichu commented on Capcom Is Suing Koei Tecmo For Patent Infringe...:

I'm more surprised no one made a Ace Attorney reference till now. I mean Capcom, courtroom, and the fan's murdered fate in the company, it just screams "Take That!"

I didn't know that first one can even be patent. I thought that was a feature any developers can use, unless it's a special way. I guess Capcom will be sniping companies like Sega and Nintendo next.



ultraraichu commented on Talking Point: The Pokémon Trading Card Game ...:

As someone who play the TCG online (PC & Mac) and real life, I can say this is more then welcoming news.

For one thing it help raising more awareness for the game since it's been out for more then 4 years on a non-Nintendo platform yet people react to the app like this is a first and they sell out.
Also this might also get more people to buy the real TCG since their version of in-app purchase (optional) is buying a new theme deck/ booster pack and entering the code online for a digital version of the cards.

At least soon I'll be able play it anywhere and not in one place



ultraraichu commented on The Pokémon Trading Card Game Is Coming To iP...:

I take it by some of the reactions here that people never played the TCG online for PC and Mac that's been on the official site for years.
I hoped for a Wii U version, but the 3ds? That seems Farfetch'd. Well as long as I don't have to use a mouse anymore to play and uses functional touch controls (lot of bugs on touch screen PC), I'm good.



ultraraichu commented on Mario Kart 8 Passes One Million US Sales as Wi...:

It's times like this that makes me wonder if this much retail copies got sold, how much got sold digitally? I can imagine it would be just as much since Iwata said more customers are accessing the internet with their Wii U and 3ds.



ultraraichu commented on Charming Zelda-Themed Carry Case Appears on Eu...:

Good for EU, it nice they get something nice for a change. Some NA gamers don't know how good we have (had?) it.

I'll pass if it comes to NA. Looks nice but I know it's something I'll just have to brag (to nobody) and not use.



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

I guess Scram Kitty is worth a shot for that price.
Even though I love the Megaman Battle Network series, I can't in good fate recommend Battle Chip Challenge. Pretty much just read, setup the battle chips, and watch them fight, that's mostly it. Way different gameplay.



ultraraichu commented on The Letter Version 1.1 Update Has a New Trailer:

I end up biting at the $0.49 price. I'll hold off on playing it till they (he?) release the next update(s), I want it at its best.
I have to give him credit for the level of commitment to the game and the interaction with the gamers on Miiverse. Here's hoping it get better from here and don't get left as is.



ultraraichu commented on Mega Slowbro and Mega Audino Leaked for Pokém...:

That Mega Slowbro made me lol, especially the look on its face. It's like he/she egged off Shellder and said "you want a piece of me", to which Shellder reply "I don't want a piece, I want the whole thing" Mega Evolve.

Mega Audino looks nice. I would figure based on the description, it would have an ability that will have a 1/3 chance of putting the opponent to sleep with contact moves.



ultraraichu commented on The Console Wars Live On As Night Trap Remake ...:

Wow, now I'm not sure what's public funded campaign is worse. Developers holding a 20 year grudge for a HD remake of a poor game or gamers who hold a 20 year grudge for a poor game that is now being made to be different, modern, and better then its predecessor (Shaq Fu). Guess I'll know in 28 days.



ultraraichu commented on The Trending #WiiUDroughtAid Shows That, Actua...:

This always give me time to catch up on my backlog so it never really bothers me. I just start playing Batman Arkham City: AE a few days ago. Got it since launch, never played it till now. So far I put in 60+ hours into it and I'm only at 59% and I haven't even play new game+.

Makes me wonder if the "gamers" who complains about droughts really play games to the fullest, play part way then move to the next, or just talks about games.



ultraraichu commented on Capcom Releases Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney -...:

I'm not too surprised. Ever since the GCN era with Viewiful Joe and Resident Evil 4, I begin to realize that most of Capcom games is either none existent on Nintendo's platform but on others, or is timed exclusive. I got my eyes on you Monster Hunters.

Fingers crossed they have a discount on the eshop for the game. I will get it for the 3ds in due time but less would be more convenient.



ultraraichu commented on You Won't Be Able To Cross Swords Online In Hy...:

No lost to me since I mostly play games like this locally with my love one. More fun that way.

Beside have anyone played SW3, OW3H, or FotNS KR2 online co-op (the ones complaining I mean). If your lucky enough to even find someone the same time your playing, it feels like playing with an AI. I can imagine if FotNS didn't have online play, people would be whining a lot more then now. But since they do, hardy anyone plays it and that have team mission with up to 8 players, voice chat with custom pre-set messages and more powerful scrolls to collect. A real shame.



ultraraichu commented on Looks Like You Can Only Install 300 Games And ...:

This got me thinking how much stuff I have downloaded on my 3dsxl. Short answer, not even close. Long answer...

32 3ds games (10 are retail games)
15 VC games (13 from ambassador program)
38 demos
17 videos
11 non game apps (Netflix, Pokedex 3d pro, etc)
119 total

I just wonder how much of that is paid games and not other free stuff.

Edit: Cool to know @Rayquaza3010. I have no clue how I missed your post, especially when it's directly before mines :P



ultraraichu commented on Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2 Confirmed...:

When I clear up more game backlog, I wiill try out the first. I always wonder how it's like first hand and it's less then $20 so I'm willing to bite that bullet.

If I was 17 years younger, I would be all over the show like I was with mario, kirby, sonic and other videogame cartoons with the same wide eyes and excitement. I miss that childhood innocents and outlook.



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.
