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.

ultraraichu commented on Here's Why The StreetPass Bunny Couldn't Care ...:

Funny, for the first 4 paragraphs I thought of it as the bunny having the personality of the region it's in. Kind of similar to a game in Europe being released later compared to NA and gamers' reaction and vic versa. Maybe that NA Bunny also have a blog ;)

The law says it's to protect the kids but most of us know it's for the parents.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo Highlights Increased US Hardware Sale...:

20% increase is 40% better than a 20% decrease. Let's see what the May flower Splatoon will bring.

Bet they'll be more Nintendoom comments and topic if that was the case with the decrease. Then again by Internet law, it can be up more than 100% and it still be doomed.



ultraraichu commented on Reminder: New StreetPass DLC Games Offer a 'Th...:

@russellohh Oh yes, that (especially Super Mario 3d Land & its 3 pass limit) and to have at least more than 12 StreetPass titles working at one time on a system, the very least the New 3ds /XL ones. So many tough calls replacing one game with StreetPass for another when the spot is full.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo Download: 16th April (North America):

A good week to spend part of my tax return on digital games and dlcs. Almost like they planned it. Anyways, mark me up for all the dlcs and Paparazzi, maybe Castle Conqueror EX if the price is right. Still have to get that Kirby Triple Deluxe game before the sale is over (4/20).



ultraraichu commented on Turn It Up To Eleven, Guitar Hero Is Making A ...:

Even though I was hoping it would use to old guitar controllers (to save money), I would enjoy the new ones more. Main reason I played on the easier difficulty setting is because I have a hard time hitting the blue and orange key with my pinky finger/moving fingers up and down.

If this is the absolute version as in this is the only game you need to play all future track, ie no Guitar Hero Tour 2, 3, Maroon 5 edition, etc, I'm all in otherwise I'll stay circling the water.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo's Super Spring Sale Shines Light on S...:

Going to download Kirby triple deluxe. I wanted to get that for a year now but I can never find it on sale and I didn't want to buy it and then it becomes part of a Club Nintendo promo. It's a game I want to play but not in a hurry for day one full price.



ultraraichu commented on The Man Who Created Trollface Wants A Cut Of M...:

This article is full of surprises. Something like troll face is really copyright, it made $100,000 est. since 2010 and have a Hollywood deal, fans having petition to have the game reinstated, meme run making no cash, well that one is more of a straight lie the a surprise unfortunately. Crazy morning.

I just hope this doesn't cause Nintendo to rethink their policy on Indie games. I know developers and gamers alike don't want to go back to the wii ware era of restrictions for "quality" control.



ultraraichu commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Plans for DLC and Mi...:

Damned if you do, damned if you don't, so might as well do to make some people happy. For the most part, I'm ok with dlc in general. It's an optional feature that only add to the replay value if you want it to. it's more of a luxury than a necessity like 3ds home themes or the NSMB2 dlc.

I don't mind micro-transactions as long as it doesn't make it the only way to get something due to the game giving the players little to no secondary currency to do so. Pokemon Shuffle have been pretty good with the coins and jewel distribution, so that a good start.

I always find the amiibo craze interesting just for the fact there is so many sides and reasons for the people who are or aren't interested in them. even the reactions from the wave 4 pre-orders is interesting and it not even close to the end of March yet for the release, much less April. The twist is, it not even mandatory to the game(s) like Skylander is but it gets more attention.



ultraraichu commented on Gallery: Wii U Owners React to Screenshot Remo...:

I thought with their parental block, it would prevent communities like this from even showing up on the Miiverse for those not of age.

I wonder what could of happen during those 2 or so days for them to disable screenshots. Complain from "concerned" adults like with swap note and others, wide misuse like with Kid Icarus: Uprising, or a overlook with their quality control team.

In any case it's no big deal. Social sites do it all the time, heck even this site does it more time than people talk about (maybe they delete the posts before the masses knows ;) ) People just have more reason to hate Nintendo "Directly" (forward arm gesture) with everything.



ultraraichu commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Turns to Classics, DLC...:

I pretty much enjoy it as always, well almost. The only 2 downers for me is the no news on the New 3ds (standard) and the NFC adapter being released in fall. Getting harder and harder to fight the urge to buy the XL model. I am dying to use my Marth and Ike in Codename STEAM and other stuff.

So this is how the people who have expectation with every direct feels. At least the realistic ones.



ultraraichu commented on North American Retailers Confirm Super Smash B...:

If I wasn't at work right now I would of been at a Gamestop right now (or Nintendo world since they had it earlier).. Wish they released the pre-orders Friday instead since that's my day off but all fair ish in love and amiibo.

Hope they still have in-store pre-order by time I get off of else it's Wave 3 all over again.



ultraraichu commented on Let's Educate Parents About Mature Titles, Sug...:

As a game loving adult who knows non gamer parents (one of them being a teacher), can see his point. Parents/most adults don't really follow the current treads of the youth and that what put them out of touch with the evolving times, be it games, cartoons, or technology as a whole. I got so many RL first hand stories with uneducated guardians about this stuff, there is a chance I be called into court as a witness (you get the idea).

I don't see this attacking parents as a whole, just the ones who would do something like unknowingly give their 5 year old son a certain Anime dvd rated AO (the H word ones) without knowing what type of contents it contain just because it's a cartoon (judged only the cover and didn't read).



ultraraichu commented on Pokémon Rumble World Arrives On The 3DS eShop...:

I have a weakest for the Pokemon IP so getting this is a given. I'll wait until I play it to cast my judgement about the micro-transaction part. People made a big stink about Pokemon Shuffle yet it doesn't force the microT on you.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo Announces Next amiibo Waves And Asks ...:

Time to get my amiibo army hat and gun (side savings) ready for the next coming war. My most wanted is the Pokemon and Kid Icarus amiibo line

I have voted yet but if I do, it will be for Raichu. Pichu had his time in the lime light in melee, why not him. He can have a similar moveset to pikachu but have a bit more reach (Especially with the tail) and power due to his body and evolution stage but a bit slower and a slightly weaker recovery by comparison. Also a different final smash.



ultraraichu commented on New StreetPass Mii Plaza Games Incoming, Along...:

A day before my b-day, nice. I'm not 100% on the Premium yet but I know I'm going to buy the other games. Wished they update the mii visitor's limit though.

Btw is it me or did that sword transform into a wii remote for a split second in Battleground Z?



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo Reveals the Final Club Nintendo Elite...:

Darn, I already own 70% of the games listed as rewards on one platform or another. I guess It's between Yoshi's New Island or DKC: Tropical Freeze.

Looks like I'll never get Kirby Triple Deluxe as a reward or download sale. So much for wishful thinking.



ultraraichu commented on Collector Cases for amiibo Secure Kickstarter ...:

I can imagine you have to be really nick-picky to get something like this. Well from what I experience there are people who are an*l enough to buy this while it's already factory sealed and have it in a see through cabinet; it's like triple sleeve trading cards even though I think double sleeve is more then enough.



ultraraichu commented on Standard-Sized New Nintendo 3DS Photos Emerge ...:

Man the people at Nintendo are good at keeping secrets. They did all this since last year September with the XL model yet lead "fans" to believe that they don't care about NA because they only get the XL version.

What next, that secretly they waited until they made enough standard models and face plates to ship to NA and then release it in the same month with the first new 3ds exclusive game (as I say full of hope).



ultraraichu commented on Game Jam Tasks Developers With Creating A Zeld...:

With the way Link looks and acts, I peg him as gender-less or maybe both.

I seen and known quite a number of non-gamer adults that think Link is a girl already. To me making Link a female is just adding boobs and possibly showing more body like exposed legs or a tighter tunic.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo’s Free-To-Play Experiment Pokémon ...:

Good for them. I might be part of the minority that is willing to admit out loud that I spent money on gems to support the work they put into the game (and to catch 2 expert level Pokemon). I play a lot of similar games but so far this one does it right in the f2p field.



ultraraichu commented on Iwata: Embracing Smart Devices Has Made Us Eve...:

This is a good way to spread brand awareness. Almost (or over) 2 billion people uses a smart device worldwide.
Games are one thing people are mostly focus on but what about apps that relies on or is more useful if you own one or both Nintendo systems (ex. Eshop).

For all I know it could end up like the Pokemon TCG that is now also on smart devices. Some people here didn't even know this is the same thing that's on PC and Mac or that it exist (awareness) and it didn't ruin the brand like others said (Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire).



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo Doesn't Intend To Be A One-Hit Wonder...:

"it is a highly competitive market and only a handful of content providers have been able to show enduring results"
"Many content providers who are succeeding on smart devices are depending on single hit titles"

Just knowing and understanding those 2 factors gives me confidence in what Iwata is doing.



ultraraichu commented on Guide: Everything We Know So Far About Nintend...:

Like the Q&A, nice to get a quick summary before I read the other articles later.

It would be interesting to see what games and genre comes out for the smart device. I remember back in the 90s there were Mario games on PC, granted they were mostly edutainment games but none the less.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo Download: 12th March (North America):

First on my list is that Pokémon Friends theme, then I'll lend my service to one of my nation's president in Project S.T.E.A.M at midnight.

Edit: I didn't know the next Hyrule Warriors dlc is today. I guess that's a automatic download.
