@mjc0961 Thanks, friend!
Yeah, I recognize that this game isn't going to be everyone's cup of tea, but for those who are looking for something unique and have a bit of patience, they're really going to enjoy it. Just because you can't figure out a puzzle or are too impatient to understand how to keep Pac-Man obedient (it's not that difficult), it doesn't mean the game was "horribly executed". I was 9 years old the first time I played this and managed to beat it over the course of a long weekend.
The fact that the review ends with the critic thumbing his nose at how the game "isn't anything like a traditional Pac-Man game" and then proceeding to tell us to go play SMASH BROS of all games is very telling of the bias in this review.



Nomad commented on Review: The Legend of Legacy (3DS):

Cool. I'm glad this turned out to be great. I thought it looked good but heard a few negative things about it. Another great 3DS JRPG to get.

I should play on that POS clone system instead of my GBA because it has a backlight?

My AGS 101 GBA SP has a backlight. Want to try that one again?

"it goes beyond all that Nintendo can offer in its official capacity"

Uh... Why? Because it can take a flash card? My GBA can also do that. It can poorly run other games from other systems? Okay, my GBA can't do that, but from what you said, neither can this clone system. Besides, if I want to put roms of other platforms on there and play them on the go, I'll jailbreak my PSP. Also I'd sooner scoop my eyes out with a rusty spoon than play with the image stretched to a resolution that isn't a multiple of the native resolution which results in disgusting, distorted pixels that look terrible (also why does the 3DS still force me to hold down a button to not get disgusting, distorted pixels for DS games?).

I'll forgive the pretty lousy answer(s) though, since you used awesome Golden Sun music in the background.

@Vandy See, now you're judging the game on its own merits rather than going "It's not like other games I expect it to be like and also I'm bad at it, so it sucks and nobody should play it".

You could teach the person who wrote this review a thing or two.



mjc0961 commented on Review: Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures (Wii U e...:

@SuperWiiU Agreed. This was a terrible review that only amounted to "it's not traditional Pac-Man so it sucks, go play traditional Pac-Man instead". Okay, how about judging the game on its own merits? And no, complaining that you couldn't figure out how to get Pac-Man to do what you wanted (AKA complaining that you suck at the game) is not judging the game on its own merits.

@Luffymcduck This is not a bad game at all, and I highly doubt you've played it.



belfastgonzo commented on Official Nintendo UK Store Launches 3DS Hardwa...:

Those are really the ONLY decent deals. The PS4 and Xbone are now the same price as a Wii U, which was crying out for a sub £200 price tag. Can't see too many parents picking up a Wii U off amazon if it can't beat those two... WTF Nintendo?!



Hero-of-WiiU commented on Feature: Five Nintendo Games Perfect For Multi...:

I rented Mario party 10 and thought it was fine, the mini games were disappointing and not at all memorable. Boowser party and the amiibo integration was well done though. Game and Wario is really good and unique and Wii party U is probably one of the most underrated games on the system. (Fun and incredibly unique mini games and modes.)

I still need affordable space adventures.



MikeW commented on Nintendo Download: 26th November (North America):

Just finished playing about 2 hours of Konami Racers and I have to say the game is even better than I remember it!
Tight controls, good graphics for a 2001 GBA game, and a lot of fan service!
Wish Konami had taken the series further and developed a home console racer game...



Caryslan commented on Guide: The Best 2015 Black Friday Nintendo Dea...:

@rjejr A problem for me is that the sorry lineup of the Wii U this year and the fact that the major third-party games I wanted to play failed to arrive on the Wii U caused me to get a Fallout 4 Xbox One bundle.

So now, my Wii U has to compete with the Xbox One for my limited credit next year. Which means the Wii U is behind the Xbox One and 3DS in terms of me using my credit(can't pass up Fire Emblem fates, and Dragon Quest VII and VIII!)

So, while the Wii U has a good lineup, I may just wait till the system dies and pick up the games that I missed.

It is a shame though, had those games like Twilight Princess HD come out during the droughts this year, I would have gotten them. It was the droughts and lack of games that made me go pick up an Xbox One.



MagicalDreamer commented on Review: The Legend of Legacy (3DS):

I'm 47 hours into the game and at the final boss. I've really enjoyed the time I spent with the game but I've got to it admit it has some sharp flaws. This game is NOT for you if:

You get frustrated dying often in a JRPG

You expect complicated characters. The characters themselves are fine, but it's mostly see what you get — no epic growth/change.

You expect a strong narrative. Although this game does have a good deal of lore behind it, you have to piece it together yourself as you explore and learn about Avalon.

You expect lots of complicated puzzles/mazes in a dungeon. It's mostly just you walking and filling out your map.

If none of these sound like deal breakers to you, then you'll probably have a pretty good time.



Sakura commented on Guide: The Best Black Friday Nintendo Deals in...:

@riChchestM It's certainly better than the normal prices now but it was £25 from 24Studio probably this time last year. Maybe a bit before. It's not that bad if you want it, but the game is quite old now. Nintendo games hold their value though. Gotta pay for good stuff.

It's just a bit disappointing that there's nothing comparable to the US eshop price cuts and I would have fancied some of those. There may still be something down the line. I have got to go to bed now though because I can't even see straight any more.



momoiiru commented on Review: Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival (Wii U):

I really enjoyed the game, although since purchase I haven't had much time to play it with my partner. But the games I have played I quite liked, purely because it's not really that hardcore like some of the older Mario Party games. I don't like losing (I'm a really big sore loser), and I love party games, but I don't get agitated in this, which makes it really a chill, cute experience.
It is expensive, and I get that. It is really to push amiibo, and I get that too. I also get that it's "not what people wanted", because I was also in that same boat when I heard about it. However if you like the concept, and fully understand what you're purchasing, then I think there's plenty of people who can find fun and enjoyment like me. A really nice way to unwind at the end of a tough day.



riChchestM commented on Guide: The Best Black Friday Nintendo Deals in...:

@Sakura I've just been running a price tracker on SM3dW and it seems it was the same price once or twice on Amazon, but I don't think it's ever been cheaper than £29.99. It's on my wish list so I am stroking my chin furiously.

Puzzle Dragons is of interest too. Partly because I play that daily on iOS. But then I already play that on large iPad screen daily for free.



Darknyht commented on Nintendo Download: 26th November (North America):

I just wish Nintendo of America would make the connection that poorly made mobile-turned-eShop games does not replace quality (or even poor quality) Virtual Console games. I really hope that for the NX that Nintendo goes to a Global release schedule for VC and takes it away from NoA.



VR32F1END commented on Nintendo Download: 26th November (North America):

Happy Thanksgiving everbody! I'm not really affected by this bad download day, for tomorrow night I'll be seeing Grave Digger and Blind Guardian live!!!

"THANKS" For Not "GIVING" Up! ♥♪
