  1. Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

    Oh, that was not what I was thinking of at all, I was under the impression it was just moving to the side a bit after getting launched. While impressive, sure. I can't help but feel that was not meant to be a part of the game. I mean, it makes no sense how that is even possible. (Yeah, I know, looking for sense in Smash Bros is futile) But it gives the impression that techniques like that were never meant to happen. (I feel the whole combo argument is the reason why there are infinite air dodges in Brawl. A feature of which I love. Wouldn't being able to dodge a combo atempt with a well-timed air dodge, allow you to escape from the combo?)
  2. Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

    Oh, that. I do that all the time. Seems like such an obvious thing. What does DI stand for then? (You don't have to answer that if it seems too tedious)
  3. Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

    I guess so. It's hard to gauge how it actually plays just from watching. But some of the matches seemed about the same kind of matches you'd see on my console. I can only imagine that until the people there learn the more technical stuff, I could hold my own against some of them. (Which is why I like the "For Fun and "For Glory" thing. Right up my street there) (Also, what the hell is DI? I've sunk thousands of hours into the series but have no idea what most of the jargon is. It's my fault for not caring, not that I regret it) Glad to see I'm not the only one.
  4. Hyrule Warriors

    Yup. I think they just wanted someone who attacks with Books who looks a bit like Hatsune Miku. Japn love them some Hatsune Miku.
  5. Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

    While this is all reasonable assumption. This is assuming that the demo available at E3 and Best Buy was the latest version available. I highly doubt this was the case. There were a few things in those playable versions that look way better in screenshots a few weeks before E3. And I said this before, and I will most likely say it again in the future. I sincerely hope they don't listen too intently to the pro's. "Competitive" Smash is the most yawn-inducing way of playing Smash in my opinion, and I wouldn't like it if that kind of style becomes too obtrusive to us so-called "Casuals". (Hate that term, just because I enjoy items and don't want to know how to effectively L-Cancel, I'm not skilled? I guarantee in a 4-player item Smash, I could beat half the people in that tournament.) I remember hearing about a Q&A where a Melee fan offered Sakurai a few pointers about balance, to which Sakurai replied with something akin to "Have you ever made a game?" Pretty much the perfect rebuttal to most people who think they know how to "fix" Brawl. (I don't think Brawl is that broken. But I'd rather not get into that right now.) Never thought of it like that. I can't imagine that there will be any physic changes between the two though. Especially if it does somehow come out this year. BTW, no offense to Namco, but I despise Tekken. Not really appropriate to this, I know, so I'll take your word for it that those games are reasonably balanced.
  6. Hyrule Warriors

    Completely understandable. She has nothing to do with any Zelda game.
  7. Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

    I find perfection is always subjective though. What someone might find perfect, another will find fault with. In terms of content, I'm OK with DLC, but having to patch a game because there's a bug or something similar is not worth a sooner release date as it just gives the impression of laziness.
  8. Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

    It's kinda to be expected with Video Games though? Especially big titles like this. (And sometimes small ones. I'm looking at you, European Shovel Knight)
  9. Hyrule Warriors

    I think that might be pushing it... Chances are, this is just a coincidence. But I would be pleasantly surprised if that was the intention. I mean, maybe they tried to make characters like that, but decided that Lana was the most believable name.
  10. Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

    I'm guessing they just want to space out veteran characters until the 3DS release. The other less likely explanation would be that maybe they're not showing unlockable characters officially? (That ship almost definitely sailed with Toon Link and Luigi, though, and I highly doubt Greninja is available at the start. Much to my dismay...)
  11. Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

    He's as good as confirmed though. Would they not show him in that trailer and then not have him make a return? That would just be silly.
  12. Hyrule Warriors

    Damn, I was just about to point that out! If she turns out to be Nayru, that would be a ridiculously clever move on Tecmo's part. It makes me wonder if Aonuma suggested Lana or whether it was Tecmo...
  13. Hyrule Warriors

    OK, I'm kinda warming to Lana now. Attack with the power of CUBES!
  14. Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

    I wish I could be as positive as you about this, but I really don't see Smash WiiU coming out this year. I'm with DCubed on this. (Although, that said, I would happily be proven wrong.)
  15. Mario Kart 8

    I find that FAR too easy. I just cruise on ahead with no resistance. I might as well be playing on Time Trials.
  16. Pokémon Art Academy (3DS)

    Oh yeah. Should have mentioned that I also have Colours 3D. I was just never any good at getting the 3D to look natural. The markers seem to provide a style colouring style similar to Colours, which is why I want to get this so bad. That and Colours 3D can't really do blending. Which is fine for hard shading, but not great for any other ways.
  17. Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

    Oh my daze! This is hilarious! Now I'm going to be disappointed when this isn't an unlockable CD for Final Destination! The screen size isn't an issue for me, I'm more worried about breaking my circle pad... Still getting both, I can't not have Smash Bros as soon as it's out! I need to main Greninja as soon as humanely possible.
  18. Pokémon Art Academy (3DS)

    Damn! I was thinking of doing the same idea! Curse you and your early access to Pokemon games! Definitely a fair review, @RedShell, unfortunately it confirms the one thing I was worried about. No landscape lessons kinda dampens it a bit. But I'm really not getting this for the lessons, so I can always just go back to New Art Academy for those. I guess I can understand the issue with the lack of 3D, all I can think of is that 3D paintings aren't very realistic? Lame excuse, I know. But I never used Colours 3D's 3D feature, so I'm not bothered. (Before anyone asks, I'm getting this for the tools New Art Academy doesn't have. The markers, spray paint and undo. New Art Academy never really could pull off a cartoony look, but what it could do was immensely impressive) I drew that two years ago. I love the colouring pencils! They're in this one, I assume?
  19. Shovel Knight

    I don't find it uncomfortable one bit. And no way is that D-Pad worse than the XBox 360's one! Not even close.
  20. Shovel Knight

    Why would you use the circle pad for a 2D Platformer? What's wrong with you? Is your D-Pad broken or something?
  21. Mario Kart 8

    Take it from someone who's been in group 1. Any non-leaguers will want to see this.
  22. Hyrule Warriors

    I don't know... It seems very Twilight Princess heavy to me. Still hoping for Ricky. Still desperately hoping for him. I mean, Agitha being playable has to only improve his chances, right?
  23. Mario Kart 8 - Online Meet Up Thread

    I'm getting some practice runs in before the league now if anyone on my friends list wants to join in.
  24. Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

    Why the hell did the person who made this show Paper Mario wielding a hammer? Mario doesn't use a hammer in his attacks. Blatant inaccuracy there. You know, apart from the fact that this is way too awesome to be real!
  25. Quality of Life Platform (QOL)

    I'm interested. I have loads of fun with Brain Training, even more so now that I'm above the age of 20. (Calculations X20 in 18 seconds, bring it!) Wii Fit was also quite fun, even if I never owned it... And it's safe to say that Art Academy has made me a pretty decent artist. Those lessons work amazingly well! (Pokemon Art Academy can not come out soon enough, I NEED those markers!) So yeah, I'll be happy to see what else Ninty can do with this.
