chiptoon commented on Bravely Second Offers Over 100 Hours Of Gamepl...:

I only heard positive things about the first one. But i gave up after about 40 hours due to being bored by grinding and repetition. Strange now to see from the comments here how many people felt the same.

100 hours = no thanks



chiptoon commented on Feature: Ten Must-Play Games for the Nintendo 3DS:

Its a good top 10, but sadly I don't feel that there are many 'must play' games on 3DS for me. Link between Worlds and Super Mario 3D Land are probably the only 2 that I still think about, the rest were great fun, but not especially memorable.



chiptoon commented on Zelda Lookalike Oceanhorn: Monster Of Uncharte...:

Looks pretty great to me. Not sure why all the complaining. Personally I'm glad to see another colorful adventure, there's not enough of those these days.

I don't see it as a Zelda clone. The boat bit is a lot like Wind Waker, yes, but the rest? I know a lot of games that played in a similar way, Zelda's just the best, and best known.

I also get the sense that a lot of effort has gone into this, a lot of love. I'm in.



chiptoon commented on Video: Guess What, Super Mario Sunshine Looks ...:

I always enjoyed the parts of SMS that I played, but eventually the camera pissed me off so much I just stopped, specifically on a stage requiring you to climb a Ferris wheel.

Would be interested in a remaster if they fixed it up a bit, or even more in a new game that uses the structure of the game



chiptoon commented on Impressions: Nintendo Made The Right Call With...:

My opinion of the game before the demo was that it seemed a lot like Valkyria Chronicles, which I absolutely love.

Unfortunately after the demo I think its a whole lot like Vakyria Chronicles, just not nearly as good.



chiptoon commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

What a dull list! Surely these are the most obvious choices that will almost all definitely arrive on Wii U? Aren't these all games we already have?

Only one I'm interested in on the whole list is Excitebots, because it was unreleased in my territory.

Only thing that would make me want to rebuy these is if they were in HD, which seems very unlikely to happen.

What about some hidden gems that sold poorly?



chiptoon commented on Feature: Five Reasons To Choose Nintendo 3DS T...:

I'm pretty disappointed by the recent 3ds release schedule. What was once my go to gaming machine hasn't even been charged in over a month, and it was only being used then to replay Cave Story.

Unless you're only buying a 3DS now to catch up on some good games from past years I see nothing of interest on 3DS.

Alternatively I play on my Vita daily its a fantastic machine that is worth the investment just for the amazing indie games and PS+, and Cross-buy.



chiptoon commented on Review: Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal (3DS):

"It's one of the better Sonic outings of recent times, but unfortunately that's not saying an awful lot." ?? several recent Sonic games have been fantastic. Why must people keep writing things like this?

also, as many have said, the demo was utter rubbish. The level design in particular was embarrassing.



chiptoon commented on Teslagrad to Arrive at Retail on Wii U in Earl...:

I was surprised not to like this very much. I'd been looking forward to it. I found the physics a bit unpleasant, making the game less fun than I had thought it would be. Then there came several difficulty spikes that made me stop enjoying it altogether, so I never finished it. A shame, because there's so much that is great about it.



chiptoon commented on Nintendo Download: 13th November (Europe):

Nintendos release schedule seems crazy to me. After weeks of nothing very interesting now there's 4 games I'm kind of interested in on the same day as the Mario Kat DLC and on week after Shovelknight.



chiptoon commented on Guide: Tips And Tricks To Get You Started In B...:

I excited to play! I tried the PS3 original so long ago, kind of liked it, but found it a bit hard to follow the action. In fact I quickly found that spamming dodge and waiting for witch time was the only way forward in the fights against scores of minor enemies, since most of the time I wasn't sure where Bayonetta was on the screen.

But I LOVE Platinum and decided to give Bayonetta a 2nd chance on a better platform.



chiptoon commented on Hardware Review: The New Nintendo 3DS Is The B...:

So is the c-stick not compatible with older titles like Resi Revalations? That would be disspointing. Otherwise I'd love to know how it works for those.

Aside from that I'm not convinced anyone can refer to their XL as 'long-serving'.
