DarkCoolEdge commented on Review: Xeodrifter (3DS eShop):

I don't think four hours aren't enough for a $10 game.

What actually strikes is that you highlight the troublesome controls the way you do and yet the game gets a very high grade. Since Mutant Mudds got an even stronger recommendation and I found it just enjoyable I won't buy this one right away when it comes out in Europe (if it does). I'll get it discounted or if user reviews are glowing.

Anyhow, I read all the review and besides what I've outlined I liked it. Good job, although I'd have liked to hear about the music and sound fx (pun intended).



DarkCoolEdge commented on Soapbox: Sonic, It's Time to Talk:

I've never played the old Mega Drive games, just some of the 21st century and I didn't like any of them, including GBA's Rush.
I was close to buying Colours and that's probably as close as I'll ever be until they release a truly good game, one with universal acclaim. And that probably will never happen.



DarkCoolEdge commented on Review: Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth (3DS):

Sorry Morgan. I appreciate the effort but the article is too long and too thorough. I don't think it is good to explain every little detail. This is an analysis, not a review. I just couldn't read till the end because of it, it bored me :-(

I'll pass on this game. I'm not a fan of the chibi looks nor the Etrian Odyssey gameplay. I'm very disappointed with Atlus' releases on 3DS, there's no variety. I want something like Radiant Historia or at least different from the first person dungeon crawling.



DarkCoolEdge commented on Review: Tengami (Wii U eShop):

I enjoyed a lot but it is really short. It took just short of 2 hours and that's because I got stuck twice. Nice experience but not for those that care about how many hours they get for their money.

@Kirk You know, people evolve. Maybe he wasn't aware before and the actual poopoocadoodlestorm has opened his eyes, or thought differently and changed his mind.
If we thought the same about everything throughout all our lifes we'd be fools. Perception, knowledge... are not carved on stone. Or do you think exactly the same way as you did ten years ago?

As for the matter of sexism, I don't quite understand the denial of many gamers. It is there, everywhere and there's nothing wrong about pointing it out. I'm a straight, white, well-off male and I don't like that 99% of women in this industry are depicted the way they are and a big part of it is because there are women in my life I love and feel that are being constantly diminished just because they are not men. And I don't like it.

I don't want all games to represent a perfect (and subjective) world but it wouldn't hurt to have more true women around. And of course, I don't want to have them make what I want (in that case Platinum would be making Scalebound for WiiU and Metroid would be on 3DS, among many other things) but we can't and shouldn't have this level of sexism.

@odd69 The developers made the game they wanted and now people can criticize it. I don't see the problem, why do people always put free speech as a one way street when talking about these things?
I believe it is good to mention the issue because MAYBE there are people with kids that don't want them to experience this kind of views yet, which is fine by my books. Information isn't bad. The lack of it is.
