Blizzia commented on 3DS Hack Removes Region Locking For Retail Car...:

I love it whenever I have to talk about region locking. My argument: Remove region locking. Your argument: Invalid. Region locking is just another way of shoving the finger in our faces for no apparent reason other than greed. Forcing me to buy a EU, US AND JAP 3DS to be able to play my games is beyond greedy. People might argue "but you can just wait and see if the games come to your region!" The many fantastic but slightly niche games I love wouldn't ever leave japan, and I don't mind playing them in japanese... But for the love of god please don't make me buy a new CONSOLE just to play it. It is a sign of greed. That being said, their pockets do like my money. Oh well, can't have it all I guess :P But still, removing region locking would make my life SO much easier (and make my pockets actually have money in them).

@BulbasaurusRex I do have to disagree with you there. I judge it on its own merits, but it just seems way too similar not to discount it for the lazy sequel point. I agree the wall-hugging mechanics were completely awesome but it just still feels lacking and old. Sorry to say this too, but damn, when is Zelda gonna get a GOOD storyline :< The Zelda games have always been fun, but their stories always sucked. I never got through Ocarina of Time 3D because gameplay + story sucked, even though I played the GBA version :P And I am still of the opinion that ALttP and ALBW are at least 8.0 or 8.5 games. They are just not pure 10s. The only problem I have with them is that they always get fangoggles ratings. Heck, I'd have accepted a 9.0. BUT 10/10? Just screams fangasm. Also, @xj0462 the Pokémon games were awesome, but just not good enough to merit a rating of like top 2/top 3 to be honest. I love pokémon, and I love the X and Y games, but they still lack heavily in things to do post-storyline. I've bred like 40 competitive teams and it got boring after 2. Pokémon Amie and the boring repetitive soccer mini-game to get EVs? Nope. Fire Emblem: Awakening was seriously too good to rank below Pokémon.

Okay-ish list, really wish NL would take off the Mario/Zelda goggles though. I still cannot believe these games hogged first places this year. While good, they were definitely not the best. Oh well, opinions differ.

Still surprised that Etrian Odyssey IV didn't take any places whatsoever on the reader's choice awards. Glad to see them hog something here :)

@BulbasaurusRex Nope, it isn't. Each game is unique. Rehashes deserve their own ratings in relation to the times they are released in, and even though the original which was released AGES ago was (to some) a 10/10 back then, it is in no way a 10/10 now. Neither is the rehash, as it doesn't do much different than the original. You might not agree, but then again, each to his/her own :)

@Yrreiht I also dislike ALBW. I did buy it just to see if the hype was real, but sadly, I was disappointed. It doesn't deserve the 10/10 rating. It is a good game, but I'd say 8/10-8.5/10 maximum. It is still same old same old, except the few "innovations" as fans put it :P In other words an easier way of getting your equipment, but still same old :) Oh well.

Blizzia commented on Game of the Year: Nintendo Life Readers' Award...:

@Bassman_Q Haha, it was my only game except Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate back when I got my 3DS XL (bought it in march, was in the UK the day FE was released). Needless to say, it is currently the game I have spent most hours in, sitting at a wopping 1139 hours. 2nd place would be Pokémon Y at 7xx hours. Dat game warrants both 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th playthrough at least simply because of all the awesome support material, parent-children combinations and class combos. Loving that game. Thinking of doing a playthrough every 2 months when I forget the story a little bit :D

Other than the usual stereotypic not-at-all understandable zelda/mario spam on first places, I agree with this list. It is pretty good, and I must applaud most of the readers for having brains and sense for quality. (By this I certainly do not imply that Zelda and Mario are bad franchises. I just didn't find the games to be that good, and yes, I played both ALBW and SM 3D World) I am simply both extremely surprised and proud as hell that Bravely Default actually won something when it has only shortly been out in Europe, and isn't out in NA yet. Being from Europe I finished the game a few days ago, and it is truly a masterpiece. Zelda was a bit disappointing and Mario was... Mario. Good, enjoyable, but old :) Fire Emblem: Awakening should have taken the overall first place for 3DS in my opinion, but alas, I am just a single person. I was surprised by Pokémon not taking anything bar 3rd places, but then again, even though I play it a lot, beyond battling and breeding there isn't that much to do (unless you enjoy harvesting berries or doing pointless things). Overall great list, while some of the winners are dubious (they won, no doubt, but again, I don't have to agree with the choices. The overall community does agree, and thats just how it is :D) Thank you for a wonderful year Nintendo, Nintendolife and third parties (3DS is such a bliss for an RPG lover).

Blizzia commented on Review: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual De...:

Made an account just to highlight this extreme issue with Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies.

Now don't get me wrong, I love this game to pieces, but I harbor an insane hatred towards Capcom at the moment because of the way they've butchered the game completely. The review mentions nothing of how awful the localization is with incredibly large quantities of spelling/grammar errors. I swear they've been slacking off insanely much. I am on the 3rd case atm (Turnabout Academy or smth), and I've seen so much bullpoopydoodliedingdongpoopingly obvious bad grammar, missing words and sentences that make no sense that it is utterly destroying the visual novel part of the game that is made around the WALLS OF TEXT.

Finally: I love Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies and all the other entries in the series, played them all, but honestly, if Crapcom doesn't release a patch fixing the abundance of grammar and spelling errors in the game, I will have to consider going into their HQ with guns blazing and simply stop them from ever doing poor jobs like this again. Goodness, feels good to get it out. Now, if you are annoyed by a poopydingledoodooton of bad grammar, don't buy the game unless you really love the series. It really drops the momentum and atmosphere.
