Aerona commented on Square Enix Offers Black Friday Deals, Live No...:

I was so excited to see Curtain Call for ten, but after that ridiculous shipping and handling it's only a little cheaper than eBay. I bought a copy of TWEWY, which was an okay deal, to balance it out. So each game is costing me thirteen dollars. Not too bad.

I think Plants vs. Zombies 2 is a good example of free to play done right. It's perfectly beatable without spending a dime on it, and it doesn't artificially limit your play time. Since the game is really fun and I got a lot of play time for it, I was happy to spend a few dollars here and there on optional plants.

So basically, a good free to play game should work with the concept of reciprocity.

I've checked badge arcade almost every day since it came out. At first my impressions were really positive, but it's starting to wear on my patience. A dollar for five plays is ridiculous. I'm spending real money for a chance at glorified stickers, so they really need to give you more plays for your money. I remember @rjejr saying we should get twenty five plays for a dollar and that sounds about right.

I liked the idea of free plays through the practice catcher, but they should let you pick the claw machine you want to practice, and therefore the one you'll have a chance at. Many of the badges seem impossible to get with only one play, too, and I really think the special backgrounds should be given away with the completion of each set.

I really like the launcher badges, so I can still see myself spending a dollar or two if they match my favorite themes. But yeah, I've spent two dollars on this, and I think that's more than enough for now.



Aerona commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 12t...:

I thought the direct was better than E3, at least. I'm so excited for Red and Blue. I'm happy to have Cloud in Smash, too. Hopefully we get the remake on NX. You'd think that would be obvious but you never know with Nintendo.



Aerona commented on Nintendo Badge Arcade is Out Now in North America:

Such a cute app. I ended up replacing all the app icons on my home screen with badges. I could see myself spending a dollar here and there on this.

It's so odd that they haven't done anything with themes on the Wii U.



Aerona commented on Feature: Why We're Still Playing... Pokémon G...:

I can't go back to the original Gold and Silver. I can play Red and Blue for the nostalgia of it. I've even learned about all the glitches, and caught a Mew in my last play through.

I did have a HG/SS play through going last year with my Dad and my nephew. It was great taking some 4th genners for a spin around Johto. We would battle and trade and it was so much fun. But that was the exception, not the rule. Mostly those old games feel like too much of a step backwards.

Meh... If you could pass sludge bomb on by breeding it would be cool. It's a real pain to soft reset even when you're guaranteed three perfect stats.

Gamefreak should make synchronize work on events, at the very least.



Aerona commented on Video: Jessica Chobot Is Samus Aran In This La...:

I like how the Chozo communicated through her logs. It added to that sense of isolation and left things to the imagination.

I don't like the suit though. Seemed too skinny and the shoulders seemed too high. The lit panels were a bit much, too. But it's really good for a fan film. I enjoyed it.

Good update, I've been waiting for them to fix power ups. So I guess I'm just waiting for desert and snow themes, music choice, one way tubes, various power ups, lava , waterfalls, and pools, slopes, world map, yoshi in SMB & 3, and Luigi.



Aerona commented on Poll: The Tricky Issue of Retail Games as Down...:

On 3DS, a portable system with cheap storage options, I have six retail downloads. On Wii U I have zero.

Fatal Frame would be a maybe with a physical release, but as it is, I doubt I'll be adding it to my collection.



Aerona commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes ...:

I showed the trailer to my Zelda-superfan friend and her reaction was that they were ruining the series, and I'm less than impressed by it myself. Maybe if there was a two player mode, they could have changed our minds.



Aerona commented on Video: We Want Your Super Mario Maker Levels f...:

Alright, cool, most of my levels are added already, I'll add the new ones soon.

Bullet Bridge (7115-0000-0078-A28E), Escape from Neo Bowser City (ECBF-0000-0054-B19F) and Miner Moles' Gold Rush (158C-0000-00A7-FEFC) are probably the levels I'm most proud of.
