chiptoon commented on This Is The Last Real Console Cycle, Proclaims...:

problem isn't with the consoles though. Its with the cost of console games and the length of time and dedication it takes to play them .

How many more would play if they didn't need a dedicated console. Very very few I recon, unless they follow a free to play model.



chiptoon commented on Review: The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth (New 3DS):

Got it on PS+ and played it on Vita. I don't see what all the fuss is about. The structure of the game is terrific, but I found the core shooting mechanic very clunky and it ultimately killed it for me.



chiptoon commented on Review: Devil's Third (Wii U):

The multiplayer sounds so interesting, but I really think the ability to pay for huge advantage will completely break it.

Really tempted to buy this on sale though.



chiptoon commented on Industry Analysts Speculate On Nintendo's Futu...:

I find statements like "They're behind the curve on online multiplayer gaming, and in online community infrastructure in general" strange, despite how often they are repeated.

They don't do it like everyone else, but they have incredible success with what they do. Mario Kart and Splatoon and Miiverse are all proof of that.



chiptoon commented on First Impressions: Trying to Believe in Devil'...:

I had no interest in this game until these bad previews came out. They remind me of reviews of Disaster: Day of Crisis and especially the first Red Steel, both games I had a great time with.

Not to say that I don't believe the criticisms, but just that I might not care, and that I've come to realise that I might have some strange tastes.



chiptoon commented on 3D Streets Of Rage 2 Hits North America & Euro...:

so torn on this one. I played the game too much in my youth, which makes me want to have it on my 3DS fro nostalgic reasons, but also makes me aware that I would likely only play it 2 or 3 times, before excessive familiarity kills the fun.



chiptoon commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Shipping This Time Next Ye...:

If they only showed it to potential partners this year they would be launching in 2016 with close to no 3rd party support. Devs would have to have close to final dev kits right now to hope to even port a game over for that release date



chiptoon commented on Talking Point: Metroid Prime: Federation Force...:

I think it looks great now, even though I was initially disappointed. I'm looking forward to it.
But I'm horrified that this is still an issue, and worse that 6000 pricks want a game cancelled and actually feel they have a right to demand it. Of all the things in the world to give a damn about!



chiptoon commented on Metroid Prime: Federation Force:

like many people, I felt a bit punched in the gut when this was revealed. Not the Metroid I was asking for. Yet the more I watch the videos the more I'm looking forward to it. In fact I think it looks pretty fun.

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.
