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.

chiptoon commented on Nintendo Download: 10th July (Europe):

I really think the VC games are too expensive. I'd like to try Twin Bee, but I know that I'll only play for a couple of hours at best, so it doesn't feel worth it.

Many of the games are either curiosities for me, or have nostalgia value. I'd probably collect a lot of them if they were around a 3rd of that price. But I can't justify it at £5.49

chiptoon commented on Bayonetta Download Code Included With Retail a...:

Got Bayonetta for PS3 way back, and could never really get into it. Found it extremely easy to lose track of what was going on, even where Bayonetta was on the screen.

I'm really torn on whether or not to get the sequel. I've heard the PS3 version was rubbish, and it was much more enjoyable on 360.

chiptoon commented on Review: Pushmo World (Wii U eShop):

I really loved Pushmo, but having finished it I found Fallblox to be disappointing as most of the game seemed extremely easy. I only found the last 5th or so of the levels to be remotely challenging.

chiptoon commented on Guide: Getting Started in Mario Kart 8:

I would so love to get started with Mario Kart, but my preorder isn't going to arrive til next week - and there are no copies available in stores in South Africa!

How utterly ridiculous, and what a complete fail by Nintendo's local distributor.

chiptoon commented on Review: Mario Kart 8 (Wii U):

I'm horrified that you can't play 2 player on 2 screens! That was the best part of Sonic Racing. It made the Gamepad immediately relevant and vastly increased the fun of mulitplayer.

Hype/2 :(

chiptoon commented on Preview: Mario Kart 8:

two screen multiplayer was the thing i enjoyed most about the incredible Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing. I'm honestly shocked that they aren't getting it right. I love Mario Kart, but this news makes me a lot less excited :(

chiptoon commented on Video: 3D Fantasy Zone: Opa-Opa Brothers Shoot...:

I always found the sfx really annoying in this. They're too shrill. I don't find any of them, especially the player shots and the enemy death explosions at all satisfying. Nor do they compliment the music. Personally I find this to be a very important aspect of shmups, even more so than in other games.
