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 Talking Point: Nintendo's Game Updates and DLC...:

I have to give credit to Splatoon with their updates and events around this time of year. It act as a good smokescreen for the summer game drought. People keep coming back to it because there is always something new every week or so. If all the updates were "unlocked" as some would say day one, people would binge on it (hint at how fast people reach lvl 20), get bored, then move on to the next new game. This way keeps their attention longer and distracted.

MK8 DLC was a nice way to get people to replay the game long after release and Smash DLC seem like a "put your money where your mouth is take", which I can get (and buy into for both versions). Would be nice if Mii Fighter had more custom moves to go with the many costumes and add variety but that's just me since I use custom Mii Fighters too.



ultraraichu commented on Guide: How to Get the Most Out of Super Smash ...:

Well I mostly play "For Fun" so I'm used to 4 players but it would be nice to have 1 on 1 in the custom tourney. It also would of been cool if they have local tourney. A group of humans and amiibo fighting to take top spot.

I haven't got a chance to try it yet but do the mode records you statistics like For Glory or is it like For Fun, I know dumb question.



ultraraichu commented on 3DS Software Is Getting Patched To Work With T...:

I wonder if this will get scalped when it comes to NA like with the Wii U Gamecube controller adapter. Mainly for the limited amounts and brand name.

In any case a new 3DS works better since it's built right in the Handheld.



ultraraichu commented on The Miiverse Redesign Has Gone Live:

I am loving it so far. It's easier to filter through post as well as read ones in the discussion part (no chicken scratches). Also more people are acknowledging that there are tags for posts. Make me want to post on miiverse more often, but not to the point I reach the 30 post/comment limit.
Speaking of which, I'm not surprised most of the people I find complaining about the 30 limit on miiverse, post spams and pointless post in the past. I guess I found the true targets.

I wish with the next update they will show your comments in the activity feed. I sometimes leave useful comments that I would like to view again. Also I comment a lot more then I post, a trait I also share on this site .



ultraraichu commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand on Miiverse and Its P...:

"What do you use Miiverse for, mostly?" Answering other player's questions and post. Since that is not an option, I guess I'll go with the closest answer "Exchanging messages and 'chatting' with other gamers".

I really am looking forward to the update, it would really make things look more clean and organized. They give people tags for post yet some, or most depending how you look at it, don't even use it. I don't think they even know you can search community by tags, like for a person who have a question for a game they don't own. Every one good post gets drowned out by the 3 bothersome/ bad posts.

Any day that Miiverse don't turn a place like gamefaqs forums is a good day.



ultraraichu commented on Awesome New Nendoroids are Unveiled at Wonder ...:

@JaxonH I know. I just meant it as a way to have a cute and convenient 2 in one set, even if one shorten their hair and put on a mask to look like the other and not vic versa. Wishful thinking (and being cheap ) on my part.

Never knew they have a Chrom Nendoroid, cool. I really got to browse that site.



ultraraichu commented on Video: Camp Triggerfish is Splatoon's Newest M...:

At first I disliked the stage just like with Moray Towers, and before that Bluefin Depot, and before that, well you get the picture; but after spending a few matches in the camp, I grown to like it, especially after the 1 minute mark in turf war.



ultraraichu commented on The Miiverse Redesign Will Go Live on 29th July:

@Darknyht make that 2 in the minority. I thought I was the only one looking forward to the update for those same reason.

Tbh I would post on Miiverse a lot more but with the way it is currently, the only other thing I do is comment on other people post, which it doesn't keep a log of.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo's Official UK Store Promises More ami...:

So Nintendo UK store gets a restock of 23 different amiibo at once. Meanwhile Nintendo NYC store gets a restock of 10 (or 12 however you count the Splatoon 3-pack) different hard to find/ exclusive amiibo and the premier release of Palutena at 5PM. Looks like a special day for green



ultraraichu commented on Players Reached Splatoon's Level Cap So Fast T...:

At some points it worries me too, especially for people in Japan. It's kind of weird playing in the afternoon with more than half of the people in the lobby having Japanese names. I'm pretty sure it's like around 2-5am oversea by comparison. Maybe it just me and the way the game match people up.

In any case the game is addictive. If my Gamepad battery didn't last 3-5 hours on a charge (my way of taking breaks), I would have way longer play sessions.



ultraraichu commented on Amazon Confirms Sale Window for Palutena amiib...:

Well I know I'll be on time to get one no doubt. I just wonder how long the stock will be up for. Would it be like with Ness and King DDD around for a hour with surprise restock after that, or like with Roselina around for over an hour. If it's like Jigglypuff stocks, I will rofl at the impatient (or cautious as they say) people.



ultraraichu commented on Donkey Kong Nearly Missed Out On Pixels Stardom:

Well Donkey Kong is completely naked (no tie) and have the short haircut, so at least people wouldn't post "how aliens would know how DK would look in the future with retro games".

I would love to see Pixels since I love comedy and video games (also like all of Sandler's movies), but knowing how I am with movies, I likely wouldn't see it until 3 years later either on NetFlix or TV like Wreck it Ralph.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo Explains Reasoning Behind Upcoming Mi...:

I can't wait for the update. I like Miiverse because it's all about the individual games but a good amount of people don't use it fully or in the intended way; like the use of question tags for questions, especially if the person don't own the game, board spamming, and yeahs just for yeahs. Hopefully this will make things more organized and orderly.

Like I said before, the people who mostly complains about miiverse is the ones who use it for mischief (includes pointless posts, spams, yeah askers) or through a looking glass.



ultraraichu commented on The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses...:

Just in case anyone lives in or near NYC (even visit) Amy Andersson (the conductor of the symphony) will be at Nintendo World 9/4 at 6PM.

I might go to the 10/13 one since it's in a convenient location in my home borough. Wish it was at the reopened Kings Theater, that way I can just walk 5 minutes from where I live to reach there



ultraraichu commented on Devil's Third is Being Published by Nintendo o...:

So almost everyone spent 2 weeks debating and complaining how NOA is not publishing Devils Third from other sources, only to find out that they are publishing it straight from them? Seems like time well wasted. What next the final version of the game is actually good?

I just hope that 4Q don't leave NA too far behind in the online matches.



ultraraichu commented on Latest Splatoon Splatfest Results Are In, Eati...:

It's nice being Roller Coaster King. Didn't play any Splatoon matches for 6 day prior since last time I crammed 6+ hours for Splatfest, I got sick of the game for a few days. Didn't want that happening again.

Overall it was more balanced then the last. Less people put blame in popularity, although there's still sore loser in the gaming world regardless.



ultraraichu commented on First Impressions: Trying to Believe in Devil'...:

Well I'm still interested in the game. It's not like Nintendo gamers have a surplus of this type of gameplay, reminds me of the Wii's Madworld, and I'm not a high maintenance gamer. As long as it's fun and playable (which is questionable at the moment) I'm happy.

Also holding out the online multiplayer will be good since most times the focus is there instead of a solid single player experience.



ultraraichu commented on Dark Pit and Palutena amiibo Are Retailer Excl...:

Seeing how Gamestop and especially Target (Jigglypuff still in stock btw) handle the recent supply of exclusives, I can imagine Dark Pit and Palutena will be in stock for a good time period. Things are looking up even if certain people say our NA stock is still bad compared to the first few waves.



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo President Satoru Iwata Passes Away Ag...:

Heard about the news 5 hours ago from a birdie tweet but I didn't believe (better to say still don't) it until I heard/ hear it from a more reliable source. Seems like only yesterday certain Nintendo "fans" we're saying he should should step down cause of Wii U and 2015 E3 failure, now this happens.

I don't normally feel sentimental about these type of situations when it comes to someone I don't personally know but I did feel something when I heard the news. I guess even more so since it was so unexpected. I will miss him and his Nintendo reports "Directly" (arm gesture) to us.

Btw I post without reading the 400+ comments but if I had to guess, someone or some people said something controversial about his death and most people are disgusted and comment it. It a predictable pattern in these type of topics with a lot of comments.

Hopefully people wouldn't pay too much attention to the hate and only focus on the positive comments in this situation. No need to give focus where it's not need.



ultraraichu commented on Weirdness: Revenge is a Dish Best Sold on eBay...:

I have a hard time thinking this is real. Could be the price it sold for, the profile history of the user, the stock photo (at least a pic with a middle finger up with the game), or even going through the whole trouble of setting up a listing on eBay for revenge to make it public.

I mean it would of been easier posting a video on Youtube or Facebook of it getting smash by a rock, that way it really would be Earth Bound (rimshot).



ultraraichu commented on Nintendo of America Confirms Plans to Bring De...:

Sounds like there will be a special Nintendo Direct coming up soon.

It was fun and somewhat annoying reading all the reactions here about the rumors. Psychology students must be having a ball with us, makes for a good class project.



ultraraichu commented on Splatfest Details Are Confirmed for 18th July ...:

So glad we are having another Splatfest so soon. I used up my last 8 Snails and 60,000 for dumb re-rolls instead of increasing slots for my other gears. Moral of that story, be happy with the 2 useful matching sub-skills you have and don't be greedy for 3, because you can end up with worse.

Anyways go team Roller Coaster. Have to love the sky and speed (and dryness) of them.



ultraraichu commented on Amazon Teases an amiibo Announcement for Monda...:

This week have been a interesting week for restock with Target getting Jigglypuff, Rosalina (both still in stock online btw), WFT, Wario, Charizard and Marth today as well as Walmart with Pit, Gamestops getting King DDD and Ness yesterday, and Nintendo World Store getting a restock of +10 different hard to find ones Wednesday. Now Amazon seems to be next.

I hope Toys"R"Us is next for restock. Greninja is the only one I'm missing in my Pokemon line.



ultraraichu commented on Devil's Third Will Be Released In North Americ...:

As long as it still getting release in NA, I don't see any reason to hate now. Unless you still sore about E3 and have a personal vendetta against Nintendo.

It's weird that it feels like Americans have a much higher standards and allegedly complains more compared to the rest of the world. It's like what's not good enough for NA is good enough for everyone else, or Americans are too picky, it all depends on what side of the coin you look at.



ultraraichu commented on Animal Crossing Series Director Explains the a...:

This is feeling less like Mario Party and more like Fortune Street with the amiibo Festival which oddly enough have it own group of supporters. I know two of my friends will love both games based on their gaming taste but I'm only starting to warm up to the Wii U game a bit. I think it's because of the amiibo.



ultraraichu commented on Pre-Orders Open for Capcom's Official Wearable...:

That is pretty cool. Got to fight the urge and think logically before I end up buying it.

Would be way cooler if it was the helmet from the Star Force series or at least the Battle Network Series. I can't blame them that the original get more love and recognition, well maybe I can but that's for another topic.



ultraraichu commented on Rumour: Nintendo Isn't Bringing Devil's Third ...:

Going all wikiLeaks up here today. I wonder what other secrets they have.
After the whole E3 business and what they said about showing off games that's coming soon, that rumor is sounding more believable.

Well I can tell you one thing I'm almost sure about, JP and EU gamers will have the upper hand with level and experience when battling people in NA. Even though I want to play it myself (I brought and played worse), I'm not going to stress myself since there is still other games to play now and later.

Side thought: I wonder what other games would of got the approval cut (allegedly). I'm thinking Metroid: Other M was on the cutting table. Fyi it's still one of my top Metroid games.



ultraraichu commented on Video: Doctor Who Joins The Cast In LEGO Dimen...:

@BLPs Cool, I didn't even notice him until I replay the last part again in slow motion and pauses (I count the War Doctor as 8.5 ). Weird how it seems after the 5th Doctor the frames speeds up a bit and then speeds up even more after the 8th. Had a hard time even spotting a view of the 10th.



ultraraichu commented on Video: Doctor Who Joins The Cast In LEGO Dimen...:

"12th Doctor is defeated in the level, he returns as the 1st Doctor and then regenerates back up to the 12th Doctor again." This would be the point I would do a spit take if I was drinking something.

I only watched from the 9th doctor up (favorite 10th, 11th, 12th in that order) so I don't a lot about the first 8 besides from what I read online but it is a nice bonus for fans of the series.

With this and Doctor Who reruns (season 2 of the revival) showing on Disney XD, a lot more americans will know about the series.
