Hairy, gamer, love-mess.

Male, 32, United Kingdom

Old, disgruntled, father of four, who still loves games, probably because I'm still trying to escape reality. I jest of course, I love my kids... Maybe.

I for one was pretty impressed at the amount of content in the game. The levelling system, wardrobe choices, and weapon unlocks will certainly keep me coming back for me. I'm pretty glad I snagged my copy on gameseek,com for £25!

My only and biggest concern is that this will end up diluting game quality, on any of the applicable platforms. At this point in time I cherish the fact that a new Zelda game comes every few years. I understand that they're trying to keep it all separate, but if this new approach stops that Zelda game from being what we expect of it, then count me out.

@erv for fear of sounding stupid here, but is there any way you can backtrack to locales you've previously visited in the game? I felt like I was being forced through it, and if I ever wanted to go back to collect/pick up stuff I may have missed I found I couldn't do it with just the map.



AhabSpampurse commented on The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses...:

I saw it last year in London. I was reluctant to go as whilst I enjoy live music, I wasn't sure if video game orchestras would by my thing.... Suffice to say I was utterly blown away, and nearly started weeping at one point as I was transported back to my childhood through the imagery and sound. To anyone going this time, I envy you, it is a truly stupendous experience.

@Contrite yeah sorry, my bad, I didn't use the correct wording. It's not that I expect the rendering to be lower due to it being online, but the emphasis on the wired adapter did make me question the whole situation, and why as consumers we'd need to consider forking out more money just to be able to have a decent online experience.

I haven't played a whole bunch of fighters wirelessly so I'm not an authority, I did play some SFIV on 360 without any major issues, but your comments have soothed me, I just want the experience as a whole to be excellent!



AhabSpampurse commented on Feature: The Ultimate Super Smash Bros. Direct...:

I may be looking too much into it, but did anyone else find the emphasis on the wired adaptor to be a bit odd? I'm almost thinking that unless you have it the game will struggle to run 60fps online wirelessly. It might just be galloping paranoia, but it just seemed like a random product placement in the middle of the presentation.



AhabSpampurse commented on Site News: How was 2013 for Nintendo Life?:

I'll be honest, in 2012 I predominantly visted IGN, CVG and Kotaku for my Nintendo news... since discovering this little gem of a site I visit on average at least two to three times a day. Great work guys, I couldn't name a better Nintendo site even if I tried.



AhabSpampurse commented on The 3DS YouTube App Has Finally Gone Live:

I am furious! I spent at least 40 seconds of my life downloading this, at the huge cost of nothing. And now I have my free application, I'm going to rant that it doesn't suit my high standards! Rah rah rah etc...

It's free. Stop moaning and being an idiot. If you don't like it, don't use it. Or better yet, email Nintendo and ask for a refund.



AhabSpampurse commented on Soapbox: Super Mario 3D World's Playful Whimsy...:

Words from my own heart. I've got four kids and a full time job. By the time I sit down I'm mentally drained and physically exhausted. As a youngster I would happily play resi or something that requires full undivided attention, but now, at the end of day I want to sit down, press start, and be playing the actual game and furthermore, relaxing within five minutes. I was a huge 360 gamer, and now I just don't have the patience for the vast majority of titles. Nintendo though, with their charm and simplicity have always brought me back.
