Blister commented on Review: Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate (3DS):

I feel so conflicted about this game. MH3 Tri on Wii provided hours of memorable gameplay to me which I really enjoyed at the time - the hunting, resource gathering and crafting was a new experience for me.
Then came The Great Jaggi. Try as I might I just couldn't quite finish it off! I'm disappointed I didn't make it deeper into the game, but then perhaps it wasn't the core experience that I enjoyed in the earlier parts of the game. I guess I don't really have the free time or tenacity needed to make it in MH! The (overly) easy mode in the demo has made me wonder if I should perhaps give Monster Hunter another try. I think had it been on Wii U I would have been more tempted.



Blister commented on Talking Point: Horror and Metroid Could be a P...:

I love the idea stated in this article. A Metroid space horror game would be delicious. [Hopefully it doesn't undermine what I said when I mention that I actually enjoyed Other M]. It is possible that it may harm the commercial success of the game but I think Nintendo needs to reach out to gamers of all persuasions at this time... if you catch my drift.



Blister commented on Super Metroid is 20 Years Old Today:

Really enjoying this game. I have meant to complete it for years after I played the fantastic GBA metroid games. It really does suit different play-styles. There are so many secrets to discover that I find myself hunting every room for them. I think it provides a sterner challenge than I recall from Fusion or Zero Mission - even with the use of restore points. I think I've got 2 bosses left to go so perhaps foiling them would be the best way to celebrate this anniversary!



Blister commented on Talking Point: The Watch_Dogs Wii U Delay Demo...:

@Laxeybobby Your first comment pretty much speaks for me also. I have since the N64 exclusively played Nintendo consoles. The first party software is often great but I do feel that the updates of some of Nintendo's franchises do also feel rather samey over the years. Third party support has helped to ameliorate this in the past, but it really does look like this generation third party games will be ever thinner on the ground.



Blister commented on Two Tribes Development Studio Shuts Down and N...:

Really sorry to hear about this. My thoughts go out to those affected. I have all the Two Tribes classics games as well as Toki Tori 2+. Have really enjoyed what I have seen of them so far. I had really hoped the recent pricing strategy adopted for them would have driven sales, but must be tough to turn a profit on too low a price point.
@Reuf Good luck with future projects.



Blister commented on Review: Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando (Vir...:

Sigh. My childhood memories also trampled by the low score. Played this to death on my Acorn Electron back in 1985ish. It was one of the few arcade ports available. Even then, I had, it seemed been passed off with the BBC Micro tape by mistake which ran criminally slowly on the Electron. Many hours spent dodging the marshmallow sized bullets though...
