    Have to go with the Wii. The Super Mario Galaxy games alone put it in a league of its own. Then there's Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword, Smash Bros. Brawl, Metroid, Mario Kart Wii, and some sleepe...

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic Skyward Sword May Have Sucked, But... on the System Wars board

    Skyward Sword was my game of 2011. Strangely, I don't remember a whole lot about the music. I'll likely replay it before the year is over.

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic How important, exactly, is music to you? on the System Wars board

    @GarGx1: Great job! Char, GarGx1 has the answer. Their sound to me is sort of a mixture of Old Western Americana and Eastern instrumentation. It's classified as "goth country."

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic How important, exactly, is music to you? on the System Wars board

    Extremely important. In fact, I think that video games helped shaped some of my music tastes in a sense. Whenever I picture a game in my mind, the music of that stage/area immediately plays in my thou...

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic Genre critique on the System Wars board

    Platforming all the way. It's the genre that got me into video games (at age three, over twenty-one years ago), and it's still the one that excites me the most.Good platformers have: Well hidden secre...

    @Pikminmaniac: Glad to hear it's good. I am going to get the game soon. I'm sure it's definitely good, but to match scores from the recent Super Mario games would mean that Tropical Freeze is one of t...

    @HarlockJC: From what I understand, the 3DS eShop version is the same as the PC update of the game called Cave Story +. I really do not know what is different, because I have not played the original, ...

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic Major Nintendo 3DS eShop Sale on the System Wars board

    Cave Story...one of my all-time favorites for seven bucks. Already downloaded it for 3DS a while back, but man is that a superb little adventure. Yeah, it was Freeware at one point, but it is worth a ...

    The Battetoads and Double Dragon games are notoriously difficult, but the crossover title Battletoads and Double Dragon for the Super Nintendo Entertainment system is excruciatingly hard due to bad ga...

    Yeah, I caved and got a Tanooki suit, and on the first try with a Tanooki suit Luigi, I beat it. Glad I did, but using the power-up made it less fulfilling. I think I'll try to beat it again without a...

    So Nintendo is good for kids. Is that a bad thing? But as someone already said, Nintendo is pretty big among college students too. I am a college student, and seriously, I think Pokemon might be as fa...

    Final exams are almost over. That means I can get back to work on beating the final stage in Super Mario 3D World. Thing is insanely hard.
  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic Super Mario 3D World, Champions Road... on the Nintendo Discussion board

    @kbaily: In the sense of pure platforming, this stage is the culmination of everything the game has to offer (to the extreme), including the pros and cons of selecting a certain character. Of all the ...

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic Super Mario 3D World, Champions Road... on the Nintendo Discussion board

    I have been using Luigi on this stage for a while now--probably my last eighty attempts or so, and with no powerups. I just don't feel like searching for them in other stages/going to mushroom houses ...

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic 3D World's lack of setting / story on the Nintendo Discussion board

    I actually think the story in the Galaxy games/previous Mario titles were filler anyway. This one does not mess around; it just tells you "go!"

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic Super Mario 3D World, Champions Road... on the Nintendo Discussion board

    It is killing me right now. And to think that we purists have to beat it once with each character.
