AcridSkull commented on Review: Fullblox (3DS eShop):

I've been playing FallBlox today and to me there seems to be a noticeable difference in framerate between the regular story puzzles and the prototype puzzles which are several blocks deep. perhaps this is the same issue experienced in FullBlox.



AcridSkull commented on Matters Of Import: Take A Guided Tour Of Super...:

Love Super Potato. I picked up a couple of nice Zelda key rings there last summer, had a blast at Wario on Virtual Boy and schooled the Mrs at Street Fighter II in the top floor arcade. I could have spent the whole day just combing over every shelf, can't wait to go back!



AcridSkull commented on Poll: Did The Splatoon Global Testfire Hit Its...:

Lots of disconnections, many of them after just starting a match. It was very frustrating. I enjoyed the half dozen or so matches I did complete though.

The hour slots were a good idea to force high network traffic, they should open it up for a whole day next weekend though.



AcridSkull commented on Renegade Kid Twice Pitched Silent Hill DS Proj...:

I found the original Dementium got boring quite quickly and so never finished it. Needless to say I didn't bother with the sequel and nothing here changes my mind. I always fancied playing Moon though, will it ever see the light of day in Europe? I'm not so sure.



AcridSkull commented on Nintendo Download: 16th April (Europe):

I'd be all over Pandora's Tower if I didn't already have the Limited Edition, £13.49 is a great price (obviously not £8.99 great, but still).
I'll be getting the Street Pass games bundle (not the pointless premium plaza), the Puzzle & Dragons demo, Fairune (missed this on release, I like short games that I can finish within a couple of bus rides).
I'm interested in Heart Beaten and A Train: City Simulator so will be waiting on a review or two before I take the plunge.



AcridSkull commented on Nintendo Looking To Offer Affordable Smartpho...:

Playing Metroid 2 at the moment and a remake of that à la Zero Mission would be most welcome.
All games should offer a demo, there's a couple of things on 3DS I've wasted money on and just didn't like (PIX3D), on the flip side of which I'm sure there's games I've not bought and would love.
Not sure about smartphone style games, I'm sure if Nintendo do them they'll be polished and enjoyable, but we don't want a 100 Crappy Bird clones flooding the eShop.



AcridSkull commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Had a Strong Start W...:

I all ready don't like what they've done with Mario Party 10, locking away a third of the game behind an additional £80+ of purchases. Not that I'll be buying it anyway due to not having online play, but it's a precedent I do not wish to see continue.



AcridSkull commented on Level-5 Confirms Some Handsome 3DS eShop Festi...:

Definitely getting Weapon Shop De Omasse, and since I'll then own every other Guild game I may as well get BUGS vs. TANKS to complete the collection.

Love, love, LOVE Crimson Shroud and Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale. The Starship Damrey was good too, currently playing Liberation Maiden.



AcridSkull commented on Video: Check Out This Mario Kart 8 And Mario K...:

Terrible video, you can't see anything with the split-image side-by-side, unless they wanted to highlight how brown the fences are in Mario Kart 8?

It's interesting that Moo Moo Meadows has a much more real world look to it now though.



AcridSkull commented on Review: Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - Del...:

Assuming this is ported from the Vita version then are the game breaking bugs fixed that they simply couldn't be bothered to patch out of the 3DS version?

5 hours in and I can't use the lift because of a glitch, don't know if I can bring myself to start it all again .



AcridSkull commented on Inazuma Eleven Shoots And Scores On The North ...:

@faint Yeah it's pretty ridiculous, but thankfully anyone who really want's to play it can pick up the DS version for around £7 - it looks as though the only difference is they've extended the top screen so it doesn't have the borders you'd get playing the DS game on 3DS.



AcridSkull commented on Inazuma Eleven Shoots And Scores On The North ...:

It's not coming to the UK ever by the looks of things, sauce:

Thank you for your interest in INAZUMA ELEVEN. We regret to inform you that LEVEL-5 International America, Inc. has no plans to release the Nintendo 3DS™ eShop version of INAZUMA ELEVEN in the UK regions. While this was a challenging decision, it was deemed unsuitable to release a game with American English voice acting in a territory in which the franchise has been so firmly established with the British English voice cast and downloadable game size constraints prevented us from including both English voice options. While we understand your disappointment, please know that this does not set a precedent for future releases. We at LEVEL-5 International America want to release our games to as wide an audience as possible and we continue to strive towards that goal.

We are truly sorry for the inconvenience and we thank you for your continued support.

AcridSkull commented on Ubisoft Explains Wii U Watch_Dogs Visuals as "...:

I'm getting the PC version as I simply want to play the best version possible. I hope I'm wrong but I can't help but feel the WiiU version will turn out to be the worst of the bunch.

Ubisoft has rubbished those specs which were seen on uPlay and stated that the PC requirements will be much lower.
