Blizzia commented on Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson Bursts Out Onto ...:

Bought 2 Happy Boobs editions as well as 1 of the ultimate shinobi editions WITH signature, and one without signature (I ordered the last one with signature. Lol.) I love this franchise! (Also, the Estival Versus preorders for ps vita and ps4 are up for EU. GO PREORDER! Support Marvelous with all your might! The best limited editions are quite expensive, but worth it! 460 pounds down the drain as I decided to order 2 of the ps4 and ps vita limited editions with all the merchandise RIP wallet. Shelf will be happy though.)



Blizzia commented on The Legend of Legacy is Coming to Europe... in...:

Here we go again.... Cut the other languages from the damn European localization. English only, go, release simultaneously with NA (if at all possible). I hate the ridonkulous delays we always get... Still happy about getting the game though, it is a must-buy for me.



Blizzia commented on First Impressions: Basking in the Glow of Atlu...:

Sigh, someone pick up Legend of Legacy for Europe damnit... Hate this "North America-only" mindset. If it is coming to the west, it is in almost all cases instantly confirmed for NA, while we in EU have to get on our knees and beg for it before they realize the markets want almost all the same games. Oh well. Prays for Legend of Legacy EU release.



Blizzia commented on Interview: Senran Kagura Producer Kenichirō T...:

Anyone who thinks Senran Kagura is all about sex appeal is dead wrong. That is fact. The gameplay of Shinovi Versus was great, and since I've played some of the japanese version of SK2, I can say that it is a clear improvement from Burst. I enjoyed Burst even though it was pretty flawed in gameplay, because of the 3-dimensional characters. Yeah, I said it. 3-dimensional

Don't know if it is typically geeky single males who buy these types of games normally, but the Senran Kagura franchise is fantastic. I play Shinovi Versus daily, and have my girlfriend of 5+ years customize my characters and their outfits pretty often



Blizzia commented on The Current State Of Virtual Reality Just Isn'...:

Gonna have to say Reggie is wrong on this. The current state of VR IS fun, and it doesn't need to be social to be fun. Actually it can be seen as a revolutionary piece of technology enabling people living miles apart to be social while also immersing themselves in the games.

The only real problem with VR is the pricing. Project Morpheus and Oculus Rift are already seeing a great amount of support regardless, so yeah.

Better luck next time Reggie. Long live VR.



Blizzia commented on Feature: Nintendo Franchises We Want to See at...:

I'd love to see another main series game on the 3DS. If they ever release a main entry on a home console I might just outright quit playing pokémon though. I can't personally afford to get every new generation of home consoles and their extra pricy games. I know people think an extra detailed world and better graphics sound awesome in theory, but Pokémon is a franchise that should be enjoyed anywhere - Not just in your living room.

I might not have this opinion if I was rich. But I am not My wishlist for xmas/bday the past 2 years has pretty much been wii u and ps4 + games for them. They are much too expensive though, so its just wishful thinking.

Keep Pokémon portable and let it see a CoD-like growth in entries (without slacking on quality like the CoD-franchise does). That is my honest opinion.



Blizzia commented on Poll: We Need to Talk About amiibo - Where Do ...:

I could easily sum up my opinion of Amiibo in the simple word "No". But instead I'll go ahead and clarify why I hate Amiibo and all that they stand for:
They are NOT collectibles. They are expensive-as-hell DLC in disguise. Sure, they are advertised as collectibles, and I don't mind that at all. Infact, I would love to see collectibles from franchises I love, but I don't want to be forced to purchase an Amiibo to use a character in a game. Due to the nature of games, the character (lets just use the new Intelligent Systems IP, Code Name: S.T.E.A.M.) is already programmed into the game, and thus locked behind a paywall named "Amiibo". It is the exact same thing as DLC, only it is limited to a physical release with LIMITED stock.

I am not a conspiracy theorist and I do not typically complain about dlc, digital software and so on. I also do not feel a need to have everything as a physical thing, just to prove that I own it.
But Amiibo is a curse to gaming. Normally you'd pay what, 5 euro and you could play some dlc character they made for the lulz or included as a tribute to another franchise. Fine with me. I am not overly interested in the character, so I'd never bother with collecting figurines of it and other merch, so I'll just buy the dlc for it and play it from time to time. OH WAIT. New pricing: 30 euro. Oh, and I HAVE to track down the figurine of it. I also have to carry the figurine with me at all times if I wish to use the DLC character.

See my issue with Amiibo now?

Amiibos as fun collectibles with random funny functions within games is fine. But when it starts limiting you in some way by not having it, I draw the line.



Blizzia commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D ...:


The 100% 10/10 rating is what leads me to believe that there is a slight bias regarding how Nintendolife rates the Zelda 3Ds games Not that they aren't good, but 3x 10/10? Personally (yes, I'm basing my own opinion of the games on why I kinda disagree with the ratings) I'd give Ocarina 3D a 7/10 as a game. As a remake, 5/10. Really disliked the non-existent effort on that title A Link Between Worlds was pretty awesome, I'd prolly give that a 8.5-9/10. I'm curious as to whether this title will be a 10/10, though not skeptical, as I've heard countless people describe it as THE Zelda title of all time. Awaiting my preorder, and hoping the 10/10 from Nintendolife is true. Playing a masterpiece would truly be an honor.



Blizzia commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Demo Smashe...:

Am I the only one who is severely disappointed with the demo? Not to be rude, but they did a horrible job with it. As a first time SSB player (havent played any of the older ones, completely new to it) I downloaded the demo, and went in to play. To my dismay, only a few options were available. I found the tips option and spammed through it for ages, hoping for SOME indication of a tutorial to at least let me know how the game works, but nope, nothing. Fair enough. Then I spent 2 hours playing the only available mode with the least interesting characters of the roster (mario, megaman, villager, link etc). I think it is fair that they don't make the whole roster available in the demo, but for christs sake, couldn't they have picked some of the new characters (1 or 2), and not just the absolute classics.
The two hours was spent trying to figure out the controls and how the game even works. A tutorial wouldn't have been too much to ask for, to be honest. This is just my personal opinion, but the demo bombed hard, and certainly made me reconsider my preorder on the game. If there is no tutorial in the full game, I won't be getting it. Finding out stuff on your own is cool and all, but when you've never played it before, some pointers would be nice.

Might not get the game till later on, if at all. I know it is only 2% of the game, but gonna find out if there is any kind of tutorial that lets newcomers in on the secrets that are controlling your character and using moves. If not, this game isn't for me. I can deal with no pointers in a hardcore RPG like Etrian Odyssey, but in a fighting game? Might just be me who is a slowpoke, but figuring out all moves to the characters you like all by yourself and then spending eternity finding out how they could work in actual combat is a chore

Demo failed imo.

If anyone has the jap full version and knows about some of the issues I wrote about, please do reply and stop my whining (complaining without providing a solution) Was looking forward to the game after all!



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 But still, removing region locking would make my life SO much easier (and make my pockets actually have money in them).



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

@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 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.



Blizzia commented on Game of the Year: Nintendo Life's Staff Awards...:

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



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

@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



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

@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 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



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

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 ) 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.
