300 characters or less? George R. R. Martin didn't settle for that stuff, and neither will I! Consequently, the rest of this section will consist of the words "THE HEROES THE HEROES THE HEROES AND VILLAINS" spammed continuously until the cap is reached. Wait, I ran out of space already? CURSE YOU...

AK-1138 commented on Game & Wario Stage Brings The Fear of 'Mom' In...:

...That mini-game. It's about as unsettling as a legit horror game. Silent Hill stuff here, bro. Mostly because it takes me back to the halcyon years of playing games after dark only to duck under the covers in a picosecond at the sound of the merest of footsteps.



AK-1138 commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS (3DS):

A good, objective review. And since multiplayer is about as important to me as a gamer as a picture of oxygen is to a drowning man, the few criticisms are borderline inconsequential.

...Still, not big enough a fan of Smash Bros. in general to buy it right off. I'll probably wait about a month or so. November's a pretty empty month for me. Hopefully some good deals will spring up before that time.



AK-1138 commented on Mother 4 Is On The Way, But It's Not Being Mad...:

Where do these guys get off, not only ripping off a game's gameplay and aesthetics, but stealing the name and insinuating themselves into the canon? I'm all for creative fan-made content unhampered by close-minded, money-hungry executives, but if these guys had a shred of ethics and decency they'd change the name.

I hope they receive their cease and desist letters on launch day. Danced we in joys and triumphs, and fed the manfools to their devourings for our thanks.



AK-1138 commented on The GameCube is 13 Years Old:

Thank Jebus that's a cake or that'd be the ugliest GameCube ever.

Oh, and purple Cubes are for n00bs. It rhymes, so it must be true. #BlackPowar



AK-1138 commented on Poll: Tell Us What You Think of the New Ninten...:

I'm digging it. While the original 3DS design is the most aesthetically pleasing, it's full of design flaws, not the least of which is the dumb "bottom screen making tears in the upper screen" crap.

My original is due for a replacement, anyway. Had it not been for this new model, however, I probably would have never gotten the original line XL to replace it. It looks too much like a toy for my liking. The new design is a decent compromise, and the replaceable design plates is a great concept.

I'm just hoping the N3WDS exclusive games will be few and far between; while it's not technically my problem I can certainly sympathize with those "left behind", as it were. And if it turns out to be a thing, I'm hoping it won't be any games that interest me. Luckily, Xeno's not one of them.

My money is ready.



AK-1138 commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer?:

Yoshi's Island is one of my favouritest games of all time, but it's not exactly a great example of a Mario-style platformer.

Now, Galaxy 1 was great, but it doesn't have the awesome controller setup of SM64, which I keep returning to annually. If the Galaxies are remade for Wii U for the GamePad or Pro Controller things might easily change.



AK-1138 commented on Feature: Where Are The Super Nintendo 3D Class...:

Even though it technically doesn't apply to the 3DS, it's probably the same kind of thinking they have behind not releasing the obviously superior Advance versions of Super Mario 1-4.

"We already gave it to you."

SMB2 is unplayable without the Advance additions, man.



AK-1138 commented on Silicon Knights Loses Appeal in Epic Games Law...:

Twin Snakes is a great remake (though I can't blame you if you prefer the original), but Silicon Knights deserves very little credit for it. The same reason you wouldn't give credit to BluePoint for their MGS HD remakes.

So that leaves basically only the half-baked Eternal Darkness to their credit then.



AK-1138 commented on A Link Between Worlds Early Japanese Sales Sur...:

The fact that a sub-mediocre game such as Phantom Hourglass sold as much as it did is nothing short of mind-blowingly terrible. Those are some "glory days" I hope shall never return. Another great game like ALBW will surely undo the damage done to handheld Zelda, though.



AK-1138 commented on Feature: Nintendo Games We'd Love to See in 2014:

As much as it is is completely irrelevant to my interests, the fans deserve another Metroid Prime game. The N have got a good amount of franchises that they more or less, ignore.

Oh and a Rosalina game would literally give me cancer. She's already featured in a number of games she doesn't deserve to be in. I always found her unengaging and unrelatable.



AK-1138 commented on Video: Xbox One vs. Nintendo 64:

That's hardly fair towards the Xbox One. It should be pitted against something more in its league, like... I don't know, making stamps from potatoes?



AK-1138 commented on Award Winning Zelda-Themed Short Film, "Escape...:

Eh, amateurish if you ask me. The Zelda sequences were cringe-inducingly bad. I expect glaring factual errors when it comes to video games from big Hollywood films that can't be arsed to bother, but filmmakers that have their feet planted more firmly on the ground are given much less leeway in this area.

The subject is a good one and I'm sure a few more than a few gamers could relate (a friend of mine certainly might) but it seems more like a case of this being mostly unexplored territory rather than it being an outstandingly well-made short.
