Andyv01 commented on Weirdness: BAFTA Appears To Have Clean Forgott...:

Pfffft... this isnt a game award, this is a half arsed attempt by bafta game award to try and validate its increasingly irrelevant existence by pandering to the high selling popular vote.... try I'm not sure of the exact judge panel of the bafta but I'll bet it pails in comparison. 3DS didn't have great year but no 3DS games nominated sine Super Mario 3D Land in 2011? With such gems as Super Monsters Ate My Condo getting the nod? Groovey...



Andyv01 commented on Feature: A Year in Development - Renegade Kid:

Well said @sub12 regarding the large publishers void. Quite sad to hear RK having trouble making ends meet, perhaps the big N should be offering more support to these small loyal developers (without necessarily buying them out!) Hopefully Xeodrifter sells well and maybe they'l consider an expansion as like Mutant Mudds... A beefed up Xeodrifters could be epic. Keep up the good work RK!

Does anyone else remember the remote/proximity mine trick on the Egyptian level end cut scene? Could blow up Baron Samedi whilst he was chuckling away... took me forever!

still remember the day i finally cracked the last cheat... Facility in under 2 minutes or something ludicrous like that... ran around the house like a ferret on fire :D ... very happy days



Andyv01 commented on Nintendo Download: 21st August (Europe):

Starting to wish Zordix would just permanently reduce the price for their moto racing games instead of sales every other week. This tactic dosnt seem to be shifting many copies according to their eshop popularity positions : /



Andyv01 commented on Nintendo Comes Up Empty at BAFTA Awards:

Didn't Assassin's Creed Liberation win the handheld bafta last year? Credit where its due however there were some superb games nominated this year.

"BAFTA does not receive any funding from the government, so instead relies on income from membership subscriptions, individual donations, trusts, foundations and corporate partnerships to support its ongoing outreach work."... so basically an industrial back patting exercise... ignore them.



Andyv01 commented on Say Hello To The Nintendo 2DS - A 3DS without 3D:

yes it's ugly but the portable case looks handy, portability isnt too much of an issue if you carry it in your rucksack/bag. it dosnt make the death knell sacrifices of the wii mini.

its going to sell like hotcakes... with cherries... no icing...



Andyv01 commented on Review: Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D (3DS):

Just finished it tonight for the second time in a row and i'm astounded at the production values poured into the cart... seriously, it's almost criminal that this version only sold barely 200,000 worldwide. The final battle in the meadow was beautiful and so moving it took me by surprise, although I did end up eyeing up the horse... that would have kept Snake well fed for the flight back.
Don't worry about the frame rate and controls, if you havnt played any other version you simply wont give a hoot its that immersive :)
