CrimsonMoonMist commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

I think this set-up is just fine for now.
Yeah, gameplay videos are protected under fair use and we shouldn't need to abide by a fee simply to showcase the games we love,
but this is a middle-ground that should serve well as a starting point to improve from.



CrimsonMoonMist commented on Not Everyone is Thrilled That Metroid Prime Tr...:

So, what I'm getting from this comment section is that the moment I sell a game used I'm a scalper and lower than dirt.
The game is four years old, so I wouldn't think the term would stretch that far back. It's a shame I won't be able to sell my gaming library if I ever get into money-trouble without being branded a criminal.



CrimsonMoonMist commented on Video: YouTube's Gaming Historian Takes Offens...:

Yeah, I can see why people are offended,
but this was years ago and unfortunately, part of the norm back then.
Judging Nintendo today for being "better than this" is rather silly.
They ARE "better than this", it's why going back and seeing this seems so ludicrous today.



CrimsonMoonMist commented on Nintendo Steps Away From The Brazilian Market:

I see. That's good. I was really getting worried that you guys were really left with barely any way to play the games you want to enjoy.
This eye-opener certainly makes me see Europe's somewhat sluggish games market compared to the US's in a very different light. Gotta be thankful for what we do have I suppose. Plus at least we Europeans can freely import stuff so long as shipping options are a bit leenient.



CrimsonMoonMist commented on The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess:

The only real problems I have with the game are the rather drab color-palette (which is understandable considering the fanbase backlash Wind Waker got) that I think really undersells how good the game actually looks and that it can sometimes feel a bit empty.
Aside from that, the game has top-notch dungeon designs,
the best combat in the entire series,
an above average storyline with plenty of intrigue
and an awesome musical score.



CrimsonMoonMist commented on Review: Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions (Wii):

Personally, I find that the game got MUCH better later on thanks to the many fun and practical upgrades. Playing the game on hard from beginning to end also gave me a much more positive impression compared to my first playthrough years ago, as weaving and dodging around your enemies is exciting and works very well. As a character-action enthusiast,
I was very much pleased with this game.



CrimsonMoonMist commented on Review: Sonic Advance (Game Boy Advance):

This is what I consider to be the real Sonic the Hedgehog 4 as it builds upon the foundation 3 and K by adding a new character and features level design in the same style as the classics which Dimps gradually deviated from starting with Sonic Advance 2.



CrimsonMoonMist commented on A Sonic Boom Game is Dashing Towards Wii U and...:

Really, with the game being separate from the rest of the Sonic brand, released alongside a TV show, not getting a release in Japan and being developed by a pretty much unknown developer, I fail to see this is anything more than another TV/movie tie-in game.



CrimsonMoonMist commented on Satoru Iwata Confirms That DS Games Are Coming...:

I'd rather have GBA games on either consoles, but I'm not inherently against this change of pace. Still, will we be able to have the upper screen on the TV and the lower on the pad, if so, what about games that doesn't use touch controls at all? Will we be able to put 'em together on the TV like pictured for the pad as well?



CrimsonMoonMist commented on Rune Factory 4 European Release Has Been Cance...:

This sucks, I mean... there are just no other words right now.
I was so looking forward to this one, and because of the region-lock,
this means I'll probably never get to play it.

I'm starting to worry a lot for the future of SMT IV,
but at least we know Ghostlight does go the extra length to release something, even if it's just for those who have already preordered.



CrimsonMoonMist commented on Review: Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (Virtual Console ...:

I don't think this review really does the game justice,
Sonic 3's levels are extremely expanded compared to Sonic 2.
Both in length and design complexity and it's just overall an endlessly replayable game because of the large amount of alternate routes,
especially when taking Tails into consideration



CrimsonMoonMist commented on Boost in GAME Retail Sales Suggest a Potential...:

They actually begun importing DS, Vita and PS3 titles at my local GAME,
it's actually really neat since, with shipping costs, their offerings are usually just as good, just without the wait.

They've also been selling third-hand accessories for older video-game systems, which I appreciate.
