BearClaus commented on Review: Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (Wii U):
@TheRealThanos I don't either.
↓ That's right, I don't get the joke.
BearClaus commented on Pokémon Puzzle Challenge:
Hold on, why isn't the review for this game out? Are we waiting for the European release?
BearClaus commented on Nintendo of America Announces Upcoming eShop '...:
Alright, good thing I waited to get Metroid II.
@FX29 Sonic's unsalvageable reputation suffering is worth it if it means games like Sonic Lost World get made.
BearClaus commented on Weirdness: Super Smash Bros. amiibo Modificati...:
That deformed Yoshi…
@Sergio151 No. This is an average/lackluster game. Sonic '06 was much worse than that. (Though the Metacritic scores say otherwise.)
BearClaus commented on Video: Two Smash Bros. Instructional Videos to...:
Must all fighting game techniques have “cancel” in the name?
@Terminian-Hero ↓↓ “Crouch canceling” is such a stretch though.
BearClaus commented on Review: Xavier (Wii U eShop):
So haphazard. Is that cactus supposed to be prickly? It doesn't look prickly. And what's it doing in a snow level? Come to think of it, what's that buzz saw blade doing there sticking out of the snow?
BearClaus commented on Nintendo Download: 20th November (North America):
Well, at least we got some kind of Donkey Kong game for DKC's be-earlied twentieth anniversary.
But hey, playing as DK in Super Smash Bros. is plenty fun!
BearClaus commented on Little Mac Is Officially The Least Successful ...:
The most overused character is bound to be the one that loses the most. The most people play as him, but they aren't all going to be crazy skilled.
BearClaus commented on Sonic Boom Exploit Allows Players to Skip Larg...:
@kamifox1 #25 I think it'd be pretty easy to get by accident. You'd just need to pause the game after starting the attack and then notice that the attack is canceled when you unpause. It's a pretty small window of time, but I could see it happening by chance, particularly in co-op mode.
I thought games were capable of having working pause features since the fourth generation. Sometimes earlier, too. Lots of times even.
BearClaus commented on Table Top Racing: World Tour Dev Isn't Sure Ab...:
They've got Mario Kart, so is it really in their interest to do this, I'm not entirely sure.
So hold on, let me see if I'm understanding this correctly. They're not sure if Nintendo would allow them to release this game because it would compete with Mario Kart 8.
Is that actually… a thing? I think Nintendo would resent the release of every third-party platformer on their system if that were the case. This doesn't make sense to me.
BearClaus commented on Free Sonic Boom 3DS Theme Now Available For Do...:
That's really just regular Tails with some goggles and straps drawn on up on the image there.
What @espy said.
BearClaus commented on Rodea the Sky Soldier Now Flying Into a Spring...:
The shift to Wii U is no surprise
The shift to Wii U is no surprise
It surprised me! I thought that if this game were ever released at all, it would be on 3DS but not on Wii or Wii U.
@Souldin That was Solatorobo: Red the Hunter you're thinking of.
BearClaus commented on Video: Early Sonic Boom: Rise Of Lyric Footage...:
I was under the impression that a game-breaking bug crashed the game, prevented you from completing the game, made you restart your save file, let your character fly, or other such horrible or awesome thing.
I had this same glitch happen in Rabbids Go Home, except by complete accident rather than jumping on the boundaries of the level. I had to restart the level. Not quite the same as the invisible barrel glitch from Donkey Kong Country 2.
BearClaus commented on Review: Flapp & Zegeta (Wii U eShop):
Surely the Flappy Bird cloning fad has gotten old by now…
BearClaus commented on Talking Point: The Majora's Mask 3D Reveal Sho...:
No surprise here about Majora's Mask 3D. No hype here either, considering it's a game I've already beaten.
Splatoon's single-player mode, though… that surprised and delighted me!
BearClaus commented on Nintendo Download: 6th November (North America):
Great discounts on Wii U today. Sonic Lost World on 3DS should've got a bigger discount, considering it now costs the same as the Wii U version!

BearClaus commented on Nintendo 64x64: Super Smash Bros:
This game introduced me to the world of Nintendo and convinced me I wanted an N64.
BearClaus commented on Sounds Like Super Smash Bros. Director Masahir...:
He brings the work on himself, if he doesn't trust his team with it. To be fair though, there is a ton of pressure on these guys to make the best game possible, so I can see why Sakurai would want to go overboard like that. He probably doesn't want anyone but himself to mess anything up, and when projects are made without sticking to a leader's vision, well, they can fall apart. (Not that having one person in control of everything is perfect either, of course…)
BearClaus commented on Polychromatic Extravaganza de Blob Will Be Mak...:
@rjejr Yeah, I think the versus mode in at least one of these games had the same color competition premise.
BearClaus commented on Review: Mighty Final Fight (3DS eShop / NES):
That didn't really read like an 8 review to me. (More like a 6 or 7.) Oh well, it's just a score.
I like what that tagline did there.
BearClaus commented on Review: Ballpoint Universe: Infinite (Wii U eS...:
Very nice. I may eventually give this game a shot.
BearClaus commented on Review: Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2 (...:
@KaiserGX Sounds like I'll be picking this up instead of the first one then. Thanks for answering the question I was about to ask!
Also, thank you Nintendo Life for reviewing this game. Not many people have done this, if Metacritic is anything to go by.
BearClaus commented on Review: Donkey Kong Country (Wii U eShop / Sup...:
Not one of the best games of its generation, but one of the most significant and influential from what I can tell. The level designs aren't all that inspired and the bosses are far less so, but the foundation was laid and the game left its mark.
Now, this game itself may not be a masterpiece of creative platform game design, but its first sequel is certainly up there. Really, Diddy's Kong Quest deserves all the praise that this game gets. I understand that this game is a little overrated, but anyone who claims that the whole series is is wrong.
BearClaus commented on Masahiro Sakurai Gives a Glimpse of Super Smas...:
Should be kept a secret instead.
Thanks to accidental spoilers, there was only been one character surprise for me and it wasn't a very good one.
BearClaus commented on Mad Men Football Shows Off Its New N64-Inspire...:
Stranger things have happened than this game turning out good. Namely, this game turning out to be in any sort of development at all! Seriously, color me surprised. This game being released in the first place would be a greater surprise than it getting a review score greater than 2/10.
BearClaus commented on Atlus Discounts 3DS eShop Titles in North America:

In other news, the sun rose this morning
Yeah, I was just gonna say.
@ReshiramZekrom ↓ It would surprise me if they sold.
This guy is still “doing” “this”?
BearClaus commented on Miley Cyrus Confuses Fans by Owning a Wii U:
A public figure owning a Wii U controller is definitely newsworthy, especially compared to some of the other things that get news articles on here. I mean, not many people own a Wii U controller.
I've woken up like that before… I'm pretty sure Penny Racers on N64 put me to sleep once when I was nine.
BearClaus commented on Review: Donkey Kong Land (3DS eShop / Game Boy):
Great soundtrack, but not a great game. More 6/10 than 8/10. The controls are pretty awkward and the level design isn't excellent, but the game may be worth checking out for its strangeness and aforementioned soundtrack.
BearClaus commented on Eiji Aonuma Wants Mario Kart 8's DLC Master Cy...:
I want the next Mario Kart 8 DLC pack to have Batman in it so I can ride the Batpod from The Dark Knight. Hey, far more humiliating things have been done to Batman.
BearClaus commented on Review: Bayonetta 2 (Wii U):
@Captain_Toad I'm tempted to just post a comment saying, “c1pher_c0mplet has gotten the message,” whenever a new comment comes in. That might alleviate things.
Nah, waste of server space. But so are all these redundant replies!
BearClaus commented on You Can Now Purchase Select Digital Titles on ...:
Good. Now I won't have to pester my sister next time I'm away from the U and Nintendo actually has a sale.
BearClaus commented on Nintendo 64x64: Paper Mario:
This game bores me often. Maybe I'm partially responsible for this, but the battles tend to repeat themselves. I guess that just means I'll have to change my badges around next time I pick up my save file.
The visuals are simple, but they convey atmosphere effectively. The music, while not usually great on its own (exceptions include Bowser's theme), contributes to this. I always wished the game did more with the paper aesthetic, but thankfully its sequels did just that. This is a good first effort.
@unrandomsam This game's Star Fox sequence is an example of variety, no?
@Sugar_Crunch_BD Just to let you know, before a mod edits it… you misspelled funded.
Edit: Ahhh never mind, too late.
BearClaus commented on Inquisitive Gamers Stumble Across Potential eS...:
It'll be about time once they get this up and running.
BearClaus commented on Nintendo 64x64: Conker's Bad Fur Day:
My siblings and I saw this in a store when it was contemporary, but my dad (rightfully) wouldn't buy it for us. We were too young. Now that I'm old enough, I'll likely never be able to play it (for a reasonable price).

Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!

BearClaus commented on Review: Castlevania: Dracula X (Wii U eShop / ...:
@WiiULoveSquid Yeah, that game actually looks pretty good. If it weren't so expensive I'd try to get a cartridge.
Finally, another old Castlevania game that people are willing to admit is not very good. Simon's Quest was getting lonely.
We've made some great progress today.
BearClaus commented on Sportsball:
I just watched the trailer… It's Joust mixed with Kung Foot from Rayman Legends. Cool.

Finally, a “chronicle” game on the eShop. That genre is underpopulated.
