Assassinated commented on Pokémon Shuffle Available to Download Right N...:

A lot of people are complaining how expensive this game is micro-transaction wise, but I think the opposite. Is it a little ridiculous that there is an option to pay $48.00? Yes, but only because who needs to buy 498 lives at a time? Each gem is a minimum of 5 hearts, or 2:30 of downtime. This hardly seems the kind of game one would attempt to speed through, playing for hours at a time anyway.



Assassinated commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

I basically click on every article, however for games I have no interest in, I always skip to the summary and review score on this site. Only when it is a game I've been anticipating do I actually read the content of your reviews. As several others have mentioned, your reviews often run very long. I think if you were to forgo a scoring system, I'd be more likely to skip your reviews altogether, rather than sit and read through the content of every little game and rerelease that ever graces a Nintendo system. Honestly, if a game is ported with zero differences in how it plays, it doesn't need a separate review for every iteration! I often see reviews for the same game three or four times because it released on Wii virtual console, then 3DS virtual console, then WiiU virtual console. Nothing changed!

Keep in mind, The average consumer won't be aware of the existence of the smaller model elsewhere in the world. Most people who don't follow game journalism sites regularly will only know about products released in their territory, and won't be pining over what Japan/Europe has, and they can't get.



Assassinated commented on Review: Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker (Wii U):

I really don't feel that the absence of a multiplayer mode ought to affect a single player game's score at all. Focus on what is there, not on what was never hinted at or intended to be there. Not every game needs a multiplayer mode, regardless of how "easy to implement" you might think it'd be.



Assassinated commented on Somebody At Ubisoft Really Doesn't Like Mario ...:

Wow, I can't believe how many butthurt people are bashing Ubisoft over this. Basically a guy tweeted his opinion, but did it on the company twitter account. It was an incredibly gentle rebuke, and makes a fair point. Why are so many people so up in arms about this? Do you really like the DLC that much? I personally feel it looks out of place in Mario Kart, but ultimately care very little about it either way. Are you really that passionate about a few digital cars, or are you just looking for an excuse to hate on Ubisoft?



Assassinated commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

I go Skyward, Windwakers, Twilight, Between Worlds, Hourglass, Ocarina 3D, for my top picks. Then Minish, Awakening Dx, Ocarina classic, original, Tracks, 4 Sword,""adventures, 2.
Never played Past, never finished Oracles or Majora.



Assassinated commented on Princess Daisy Costume Confirmed For Bayonetta:

Why Daisy? I think Crystal from Star Fox Adventures would be a much better choice, with that staff. Or maybe a Kid Icarus outfit, ironic as it might be, fighting angels. Or maybe a Kirby outfit. Not just a functionally identical Peach recolor.



Assassinated commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's E3 Plans Are Full of...:

I remember very similar optimistic talk last year, only for it all to fall flat. I'm not falling for it again. Every event they miss, you keep saying, no, no it's a good thing, cause that means they can do this instead. And then they never do "this". This was their one chance to turn the WiiU's fortunes around, and already they're limping out of the gate. At this point they'll be very lucky if they can catch up to the Dreamcast in sales.



Assassinated commented on Nintendo Lifts The Lid On Its Plans For E3 2014:

Well, it looks like they won't be pulling off a miracle. The WiiU had one tiny chance to turn things around, and that started with the best ever showing at E3. It needed to blow Xbox and Playstation conferences out of the water to even have a hope of standing against them in the coming year. Without that, it is pretty much inevitable that the platform will crumble.
