@starmarx39 No, you're misunderstanding. It's about art-style, or rather the lack thereof. No one's asking them to make a AAA games that pushes the tech. I'm just saying "don't make it ugly". That's not too much to ask, I've never in my life played a game where the art style felt amatuerish and that did not translate to the rest of the game. Especially a game I've had to pay actual money for.



CanisWolfred commented on Clive 'N' Wrench Aims to Bring Back Those Rare...:

@starmarx39 No I don't. Some of, if not all of the good indie games out there look generally good. Not all look great or Amazing, but they're generally pleasing to the eye and work well with the style of game they're going for. I really don't think this is the case here, and quite frankly, I don't see why they deserve to get their project funded when there are many more obviously competant developers out there who can demonstrate that they're good at more than one thing. "Gameplay over graphics" isn't admirable. The goal is to be good in as many areas as you can be.



CanisWolfred commented on Review: Pokémon Shuffle (3DS eShop):

I couldn't even make it through the tutorial because of some bad luck (75% catch rate! Breaks out! Wut?!). I've played other F2P games that felt more forgiving than this, at least at the onset. Don't do F2P again, Pokemon Company. You just ain't good at it...

@starmarx39 No. Graphics are important to a degree. They're like clothes. You have to at least be presentable. That's a requirement for daily living. If you look like a disheveled hobo, people are gonna think you're a disheveled hobo, and if you aren't a disheveled hobo, then you'll be expected to get your act together, or else you'll have a bad time, especially if you want legitimate work.

That's sort of the thing here. Even if they get everything else right, they still are gonna have trouble convincing people they actually made something worthwhile when their main characters were drawn by a six-year-old. No matter how good you are as a game designer, a game still needs a good artist. How can anyone be trusted to design levels well when they clearly demonstrate a complete lack of forethought?

TL;DR, there's a minimum standard when it comes to art in games. There's a difference between style and just amatuerish, and this is clearly the latter.

@Mega719 A kickstarter is like a sales pitch, just to a larger audience. It's not a charity, it's an investment. At the very least, he could've hired a better artist, and took him into account in terms of the full cost of the game. We're not asking them to develop a AAA game, we're asking them to act like complete amatuers in front of the people you're trying to get money from.



CanisWolfred commented on Feature: Five Remastered Games We'd Love to Pl...:

No option for "none"? Or even "something else"?

Seriously, why would I need any of these on the 3DS? What would that add? What would it benefit from? If I just wanted to play The Last Story, I'd pop in the disc I already own or could easily purchase from Gamestop for less than Nintendo would ever charge me. Same with Pikmin, though I understand Pikmin 2 got rare, but I'd rather they just do the "Wii VC" they started recently. It'd cost the same and they'd be utilizing superior control methods.

Eternal Darkness I could see maybe doing something cool, but why does it have to be a re-release? I don't the original developer even exists anymore. May as well just do a full sequel.

F-Zero GX would be terrible on a portable. I can't stand racing games in 3D - it's the only time I ever get motion sickness, and in F-Zero's case, it may be difficult to hold a steady framerate with 3D on considering the amount of cars and the size of the tracks.



CanisWolfred commented on Nintendo Download: 19th February (North America):

@TheSwagMaster98 Um, we just got a new Kirby game. You really expect them to re-release an old one when they're trying to convince people to buy the new spin-off they spent so much money on? Europe only got it as a consolation for the delay of the new one...they don't even have a release date yet for pete's sake...



CanisWolfred commented on Review: Mega Man Battle Network 2 (Wii U eShop...:

"However, if you visit the “Network" multiplayer section in the menu anyway, you'll receive a pack of rare, powerful chips you could only have normally picked up through linked trading and battling - a very classy move on Capcom's part."

Okay, Now I have to get this...not that I'm complaining. ;)



CanisWolfred commented on Review: 3D Fantasy Zone (3DS eShop):

I always wanted to get into this game, but couldn't because of the arcade difficulty. This looks to be the best option I could possibly ask for. I'll pick this up along with 3D Outrun next month. :)



CanisWolfred commented on Poll: Are You An Early Adopter With The New Ni...:

I like how Code Name: STEAM is not one of the choices despite coming out with the other games and having New 3DS features.

Okay, just got back from Gamestop and it comes out March 13th. Thanks for confusing the crap out of me, Nintendo. :|



CanisWolfred commented on Review: IRONFALL Invasion (3DS eShop):

This is about what I expected, but there's literally only one other good multiplayer portable Shooter out there, so I'll probably get this. Of course I'm gonna try it beforehand, though.



CanisWolfred commented on Candlelight Studios' Untold Story Could Potent...:

I like NES RPGs to an extent, but a lot of they're more annoying aspects were because of their limitations. If there ever was a good reason to upgrade hardware, it was the get Japanese RPGs out of the rut they were in back then. :/

Also, I'm going to get this confused with Unsung Story for a while, aren't I? :(



CanisWolfred commented on IronFall: Invasion Single and Multiplayer Mode...:

So basically the "Free" version is a demo. That's neat, actually. Reminds me of the old days of playing the Battlefield demoes while I waited for a chance to get the full version (which in those cases never came because I got into them too late...). Considering I won't be able to get a NEW 3DS XL for a while (if ever, that still depends on limited editions...), that might be good to check out.
