BalrogtheMaster commented on Review: Meme Run (Wii U eShop):

I don't think the person in this review really tried to understand the game. There is actually a lot of depth to the mechanics.

  • You can't jump unless both of your feet are over the platform, which requires precise jumping. The game requires SKILL.
  • The ground shaking is only a distraction to the player and in no way ever makes it unfair to see where you're going.
  • Collecting memes in the game causes distractions to the player, but also increases your score multiplier. It's a game of risk and reward.

Yes, the game is a "joke" with obnoxious memes and all, but shouldn't a 1/10 belong to broken games? Meme Run is by all means a functional and somewhat addicting platformer. There are many worse games on the eShop.

BalrogtheMaster commented on Review: Bit Boy!! ARCADE (3DS eShop):

I bought the game at launch as well, and I completely agree with this review. Geiblinger's accent was also hard to understand, unfortunately.

I'll be sure to wait to buy until your reviews next time :D

BalrogtheMaster commented on Talking Point: An Unplanned Flash Sale Looked ...:

For consumers, it's great. But for Nintendo, it's a horrible idea. If they started doing flash sales like these sometimes, people will hold off buying the game in anticipation of one. And on top of that, consumers who bought the game at 5x the price would feel betrayed.

I know there's the whole digital vs. physical argument too, but I'm pretty sure most people would go digital if they could get their game at a fraction of the cost.

BalrogtheMaster commented on Cave Story eShop Release Date Confirmed:

I'll be honest, I'm kind of upset with what Nicalis did.

First off, I bought the DSi version for $10, and that was good fun. (Actually bought it twice because I traded in my DSi for a 3DS)
Then, I got Cave Story 3D, which I did like, but spent $40 for a pretty much inferior version.
And NOW this version comes out. I've already spent $60 on Cave Story, why can't this be a free DSi update? Or least cheaper for people who have that version? :(

BalrogtheMaster commented on Review: Fractured Soul (3DS eShop):

Just bought the game, and I'm instantly hooked. Yes, it may look generic and there's no 3D, but the platforming is spot-on and incredibly fun. Imagine Megaman mixed with Chronos Twins and a Halo setting.

I'd actually give it a 9 :D

BalrogtheMaster commented on pitchWinPLAY Competition Cancelled:

Neat idea, but:

-There was a $20 fee.
-The form was extremely intricate and took tons of time.
-You had to be 18.
-You had to be a fan of Renegade Kid.

I knew this wouldn't work from the beginning. Sad, because it seems like a neat alternative to Kickstarters. :(

BalrogtheMaster commented on Talking Point: Should Zelda Go Episodic?:

Well Nintendo tried this a long time ago with BS Zelda on the Satellaview (A broadcasted Zelda game through the Super Famicom), and it worked very well.

The way it worked is that the player would have 2 hours (The time you could play a day, there was a set broadcasting time) to complete the goals for that day. There for 4 episodes, with about 8 hours of gameplay, and it's a cult favorite among fans.

So I think it could work well :)
