  1. Im getting that Yokai demo and I hope it scratches that Pokemon itch for me. If not, well I guess Stella Glow will be the only 3DS game that I buy then in like the last 6 months of 2015 :/

    1. IKR? I tried so hard to like that game. I tried and tried… It’s just so fucking boring and I don’t know why. I like the characters, I love the voice acting, I love steam punk, I love the devs… But the game just isn’t fun! And I don’t for the life of me know why. :/

      1. Sounds like I guess the one thing you didn’t like was the overall gameplay.

        I personally didn’t like the art style, cheap difficulty, and the lack of any overview map like IS’s Fire Emblem games.

  2. I am NOT downloading Tri-force Heroes. No. Not doing it. *Writes “I will not download Tri-Force Heroes” on a chalkboard 100 times*

  3. While I sadly don’t have much time for video games anymore thanks to my job, ironic since I got the job to be able to buy more games, I’m really hoping Yokai Watch is stellar and 1-ups Pokemon. I may get Tri Force Heroes, but I’ll wait to here some more opinions on it.

    1. I desperately need it to 1-up Pokemon. ORAS was my last time with it. I just can’t justify purchasing the games anymore, especially now that they’ve shifted the end game focus to competitive multiplayer. Black/White 2 was the sweet spot for me. It catered to everyone and did a damn good job at it.

  4. Rogue Master XenoRidley X3

    I want to make a stand with Fatal Frame 5 because of the bogus, retarded, bullshit censoring but I’ve always wanted to play a Fatal Frame game & if this doesn’t do well, they won’t release a new one because they’ll ignore the fact it didn’t sell because of their bullshit & pretend it didn’t sell well because we’re to blame.

    Grr..! That’s a very nice ultimatum you’ve given us, Ninten

    1. Nintendo Tetrarch Quadramus-NX

      >>>You are comparing a full total gaming experience to 2 pathetic insignificant costumes you can see everywhere else?>>>

      >>>Are humans really this pathetic despite the barely significant points you all make?>>>

      1. Rogue Master XenoRidley X3

        Oh but this is about more than just two lingerie costumes. This is just another slap in the face to us by the idiots at NintenD’OH! If it’s not stupid censoring of something that doesn’t really need it, it’s games with big changes from the norm of a franchise that no one even asked for nor does most even want.

        At this current time, if Nintendo wouldst to belly up right now & never make another product ever again, I’d celebrate that we’ll never have to be stabbed in the back by the company we grew up with ever again because they got either too arrogant, too ignorant, or too greedy for their own damn good. So frustrated that I’d even buy a brand new Xbox One, a freaking Xbox One for Christ’s sake, just to give Nintendo a big fucking middle finger since they seem to be giving a lot of us one for the past 3 years.

  5. Really, another Codename STEAM tournament? I doubt anyone is really even playing that anymore. It’s one of the worst selling 1st-party Nintendo games ever.

    Good riddance I say though. I expect better from Intelligent Systems, so hopefully they learned and will make their upcoming games better.
