BionicJim commented on Review: Rodea the Sky Soldier (3DS):

I disagree with the reviewer's assertion that long levels make it better for consoles and less-so for the 3DS. My experience is the opposite in that I find it very easy to close the 3DS to pause the game and simply re-opening it gets me right back into the game immediately. At home, long levels can interfere with other people wanting to use the TV or dinner or whatever and I don't have a chance to save and re-start. So, don't let the long levels be a negative on the 3DS version. I have the Wii version and really like the game.



BionicJim commented on Pinball Pulse: The Ancients Beckon:

This is a great pinball simulation and I can`t wait for some more tables even if they are 500 pts each. After plaing about 10 complete games, I had several credits so went all-out with buying extra balls finally finishing with a score of 4,500,000! I then read the directions and realized I should have been focussing on some of the advanced combos.



BionicJim commented on Review: Bit.Trip: Beat (WiiWare):

This is the best game I've played in a year. It is the perfect blend of old-school retro with modernized sound and visuals. Even better, it's a super fun and challenging game. For over a month now, it's the one game I start all of my play sessions with (I've got 100s of games on all the systems, so that is saying something) ((I can't play it more than once without requiring a break for my bleeding eyes and ears)). One thing that I didn't notice anyone mention in the Nether World, they've simulated a Ground Loop generating a 50 hz bar scrolling slowly up the screen. This is completely fantastic because that's certainly one of the elements that was common in the original implementations of pong on people's TVs from the 70's. If you're still on the fence, this game is worth it if you're a serious enough gamer to actually read boards posts about videogames.
