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'.



chiptoon commented on The Wonderful 101 Gets a Wonderful Soundtrack ...:

I finally finished the Wonderful 101 a couple of weeks ago. I'd got a bit frustrated at one point, it seemed like it was just repeating itself, and took a break.

But the last 5 hours were the best of the whole game. Its absolutely brilliant, dazzling madness.



chiptoon commented on The NES Story Began On This Day 31 Years Ago:

I had a Famicom, my first console, joyfully bought to put an end to loading games from tapes to my ZX Spectrum. Unfortunately they hit South Africa a bit late, and it was only 2 and a bit years til I bought a Mega Drive.
