Dizzard commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

Also, I think more people need to improve their own judgement when it comes to what they choose to play. They shouldn't treat a score as gospel, in the end all these reviews are written by people with their own tastes and biases. They're not omnipotent gods who know what's right for you.

Dizzard commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

Honestly I think I'd rather scores were dropped. Too often I just scroll to the bottom and look at the score, to the point where I don't think the reviews are that useful anymore. I also appreciate how metacritic scores are messing with developers, I don't like the idea of that at all.

I think the score can make the actual review a waste of time. I don't read most of the reviews on this site. (unless I'm already interested in the game which defeats the purpose)

Granted these days I'm more likely to look at gameplay videos on youtube and use my own (generally accurate) judgement to decide what I play. Perhaps if you made video reviews with gameplay footage they would be more engaging to the community?

I think I'd prefer a Recommend/Avoid label system.

Dizzard commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D ...:

@BenAV

Did I occur to you that there will be plenty of people who never bought the original Majora's Mask? Especially considering it was such an oddball in the franchise. (Not to mention people too young to have played it)

If it does well it's not necessarily because people who played it before are buying it again.

Dizzard commented on Poll: Nintendo's Year of Adventure on Wii U an...:

Seems like a pointless poll to me. Didn't even need to click vote to know what the results were.

Xenoblade Chronicles X is easily the game I'm most looking forward to this year. I'm still interested in the Zelda games but lately I've been turned off them somewhat. Right now I'm more interested in Majora's Mask (over Zelda Wii U) as I never played it.

(Splatoon would be my second most anticipated game after X)

I already bought Punch Out and Metroid Prime Trilogy (and The Last Story) in a clearance sale.....so what's coming up doesn't look too interesting to me right now.

I'd love them to start putting up gamecube vc games though, games like Eternal Darkness, Chibi Robo, Baiten Kaitos I'm dying to play that I missed the first time round.

Dizzard commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2015:

Personally I'm far more excited for Xenoblade Chronicles X than the next Zelda. Although it looks really interesting too, lately I've been losing interest in the Legend of Zelda series but this one being open world could inject some new life into it.

Really looking forward to Splatoon as well.

Dizzard commented on Nintendo Download: 1st January (Europe):

Nothing looks really interesting this week.

I don't really see the appeal of Treasure Tracker, although I'm not someone who gets motivated by puzzle games so I would probably get bored really quickly.

I could have sworn it was Tom Nook when I saw the header picture first. I thought somebody had hacked a mystery dungeon game and put Animal Crossing characters in it.

Never heard of this game before, shooters aren't really my thing but we'll see.....

Dizzard commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U European Release D...:

Doesn't mean much to me since I don't have a Wii U just yet. (but I'll probably get one before the Mewtwo promotion)

I'll be getting Alpha Sapphire instead. Still great news for those getting Smash Wii U on day one!

Dizzard commented on Nintendo of Europe Distributes Free Halloween ...:

It looks really good in action. (nicer than I expected) There's music that plays and the cats eyes move when you scroll through the menu icons.

(Is music playing typical of these themes? I've only had the basic ones until now.)

Dizzard commented on Junichi Masuda Talks Pokémon Snap and Listeni...:

I'd love a new Pokémon Snap. It's one of my most fondly remembered Pokémon spinoffs.

The Wii U (or even the 3DS) would be a perfect fit for the game.

Personally I'd love an open world free roaming Pokemon Snap rather than an on rails one. (or at least various maps you can roam freely around)

Dizzard commented on New Nintendo 3DS LL Outsells Standard Model By...:

I want to go with the XL. I've never had an XL since I always dive in first thing and get the regular 3ds, and the upgrades never seemed important enough to get the new model. Until now.

I want a larger screen for Smash Bros, also for Xenoblade Chronicles.

Dizzard commented on Former Cing Vice President Would Like the Stor...:

Here here!

Absolutely agree. I played both of the Kyle Hyde games and really enjoyed them. It really was awful to see Cing go under.

Nintendo doesn't have anything in that genre right now, I think it would be a smart move to start using the Kyle Hyde IP.
