Donjwolf commented on Review: Best of Mahjong (3DS eShop):

I've got a couple of questions for you, Alex. I am very picky about solitaire mahjong games and they have to have specific features before I'd even consider getting one.

My first question has already been answered as the only layout I usually ever play is the traditional Turtle. LOTS of new Mahjong games these days apparently don't have this layout (WHY?) which annoys me greatly. EVERY OLD game I've played has Turtle, which makes it more baffling why new games don't.

Secondly, I really hate how tiles that can be removed (whether they can be matched or not) are highlighted (at at least appear much brighter than tiles that are not) on the screen. It's one of the many features in newer games that I despise because it's essentially considered cheating (much like shuffle) in my eyes. Does this game do it too? If it's an OPTIONAL feature, then that's fine, just as long as it's not mandatory. Some of those screenshots you've posted doesn't bode well though, cause I see tiles that are clearly darkened in several screens.

Does the game tell you when you've ran out of matches? Normally this would be a standard in any game, but I've actually ran across one game that -didn't.- I never shuffle (it's cheating) so if a game tells me there's no more matches, then I can simply start a new game.

Thanks for answering my questions (if you do anyway).

@Kirby_Fan_DL3 Just 'cause you can play it 'for free' on a PC doesn't mean all the other 'non free' games aren't worth playing, or aren't as good, if not better. I can play Space Cadet on PC for free, but then I could also play The Pinball Arcade on PC (it's not free) that's 1000% better than Space Cadet. I can't bring my PC with me when I go out too so being able to play a similar game for free on another system is hugely irrelevant and not a good argument. Portability matters to me.



Donjwolf commented on Weirdness: According To McDonald's, Mario And ...:

@Prof_Clayton is actually right, you know. You can make similar looking characters, but as long as they don't look 100% like whatever character they're copying, and don't actually call said characters "Mario" or "Link," then it's not copyright infringement. Parodies happen all the time. It's not against the law. Those guys may resemble Mario and Bowser, but they're not actually Mario and Bowser. There's lots of differences between them and the actual characters.



Donjwolf commented on Ninterview: Learning Retro Secrets With A Form...:

@JJtheTexan I have a similar story! I never called the hotline either, but I sent them (Nintendo Power) a letter (I think it was through fax) how to get past a level in Donkey Kong (the GB game). I got a reply from them with complete instructions and it was personalized too! Sadly, I also lost the letter.

I also drew a pic of Rush (you know, the robo dog) with a mouse and sent it off to them. They said it was 'cool' and 'stuff' and that they were going to forward it to whoever decides what to put in future issues. Sadly, it never did get printed.

Okay, this isn't related to Nintendo at all, but I also faxed Disney Adventures a picture I drew and it actually was printed. I still have a copy of the mag somewhere in my closet...I think. When I emailed them, I've -always- received a card back with a personalized message.

UPDATE: Okay, I guess I was wrong. I don't seem to have the mag anymore.



Donjwolf commented on Natsume Thanks Fans for Strong Launch of Harve...:

@Malachite Well I already know Natsume doesn't own the series. Regardless, I like the direction they're taking with The Lost Valley. Lots of the features/ideas in that game is rather ingenious and makes me wonder why Marvelous never did any of the sort during their long history of making HM games. HM to me is getting rather stale (last game I bought was ToTT), and Natsume is giving the brand a fresh new coat of paint, even if they don't own it. I'm very interested in seeing what else they come up with for future 'HM' games, moreso than the actual series.


I'm glad to see there are other fans of this game too. A good game is a good game. It doesn't matter who makes it.



Donjwolf commented on Natsume Thanks Fans for Strong Launch of Harve...:

Wow at all the comments in this thread. So what if it isn't a 'true' HM game? That doesn't make the game itself -bad- or anything. Natsume is trying something new with the franchise, and after what they've done with The Lost Valley, I'm looking forward to see what else they can offer. The idea of terraforming your valley was an awesome and unique idea, being able to form your land however you chose. I made a huge wall, waterfalls and ponds.

The idea of using just one button to mine/chop/fish, etc, is something I've been waiting a long time for. I dunno why Marvelous never bothered to do this after so many years.

It seems that most of you are basing your opinions from what -other- people have said, which is sad. If -they- didn't like it, it doesn't mean that -you- won't like it either. I can't believe people follow Metacritic like some sort of god. The only opinion I listen to is my own.

I'd still be playing it now if my 3DS hadn't gotten stolen. TLV is a step in the right direction, IMO. The -real- HM series is getting kinda stale.



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

If my 3DS hadn't been stolen, and it was coming to NA, I'd love to get that NES Bowser theme (I love Bowser), although it also depends on what the theme actually looks like first. The music would probably be Bowser's castle.



Donjwolf commented on Best of Mahjong:

There's not much market for the game out of Asian countries though, compared to other games like checkers and chess. It's just not popular/well known enough to be released in NA. I thought you would've realized that by now.

There ARE Mahjong games on NA PSN though and you can play it on Vita, PSP and PS3, but they're all imports so they're in Japanese. That's one option if you must play Mahjong. I doubt one is ever going to come to Nintendo systems. There's no market for them here.



Donjwolf commented on Miyamoto Talks Up Star Fox Wii U's "Fun And Un...:

I'd much rather see a 3D Classics: Star Fox. It's still the best game IMO. I'd SOOOOOO love to play it on the 3DS!!
Also, I don't like all the changes to Fox's design. I loved how he looked on SNES (the puppets) and in that NP comic, but everything after that looks pretty bad.

You're wrong. I liked Command too.



Donjwolf commented on One Of The Most Successful Nintendo Games Of 2...:

I don't dislike the movie because it's popular. I dislike it because of various other reasons, and it is nowhere near my 'top 10 Disney movie' list. I used to worship Disney back in the day, but they're basically dead to me now. Whatever magic they had disappeared IMO.

I'm also not the type of person that tends to dislike anything even remotely popular. I'm not that kind of sheep, following the crowd. It'd be for other reasons.



Donjwolf commented on One Of The Most Successful Nintendo Games Of 2...:

@MoonKnight7 Don't worry. I didn't like the movie either, and so did 2 of my friends. It wasn't even, IMO, the best movie of 2013. Ernest et Celestine should have won the Oscars, but the bias people have against foreign movies/subs (unless it's from Miyasaki (sp?)) is probably why it lost. You should watch it if you haven't already. I also don't like the Frozen songs at all. People say it's just like the older songs, but IMO the older songs are still a lot better.

Frozen had too many plot holes and 'things that don't make sense.'



Donjwolf commented on Review: Game & Watch Gallery 3 (3DS eShop / Ga...:

If it ever comes to NA, I may get it. All I really want in that list is classic Mario Bros., as it's my favourite G&W game that I've played.

I doubt the GBA game (Gallery 4) will ever come to 3DS VC, and Nintendo never made a DSIware version of it (like they did with several others), so I guess I'll have to stick with G&W Gallery 3 for Mario Bros. fun.



Donjwolf commented on Super Smash Bros. For 3DS Will Feature A Music...:

Aw man wish I could get the DVDs but they're so expensive in Canada. I rewatched it several months ago by using Youtube and I also downloaded all the Warners and PaTB shorts from seasons 1 to beginning of 4. I converted them all and placed them in my 8GB Vita card to watch on the go (or in bed) whenever I wish :3

I think the greatest cartoons came from the 90s. At least, that's where all of my favourites came from :)

As to your answers to my question, you're wrong on both counts :D Want me to tell you? If you're going to watch the eps though, do you want to find out yourself? The ep in question is one of the more popular ones if that helps you.



Donjwolf commented on Super Smash Bros. For 3DS Will Feature A Music...:

@yuwarite I'm over 30 and don't have a Smartphone either. There's no reason for me to ever use a phone or a tablet, so I don't get one. Not everyone -needs- such a device, just like every other object you can think of. If someone doesn't read much books, then an ereader won't be of much use to him/her, would it? There's no need to go around belittling people for not owning something you think is necessary.



Donjwolf commented on Zen Studios States That Wii U Pinball News is ...:

Why haven't they released any DLC on 3DS? I've pretty much switched over to the Vita at this point since that handheld actually gets updated with new pins. The Pinball Arcade is the better pinball game though. I have both on my Vita and couldn't be happier.



Donjwolf commented on Steel Empire Blasting A Path To The North Amer...:

What's the issue? SHMUPs commonly were sold for full price alongside all the other games back in the day, alongside pinball games (sometimes with ONE table too) and nobody ever complained, but the same genres released at full price today seems to be 'too expensive' for some reason. What makes pinball and SHMUPs less worthy than say, FPS or adventure games? Is it because of their arcade "get the best score" nature? It never made any sense to me. Fans of the genre would think it's a steal, honestly.

Yes, it's an update of an old game, but I don't see how that means anything price wise. Old games doesn't automatically mean low prices.

Too bad I'm rather poor at the moment. This game looks great to me.



Donjwolf commented on Ubisoft Confirms Exclusive 3DS Mode for Tetris...:

Is Tetris DS going to be the only game that has Push Mode? That was the best thing about that game. I no longer have the cartridge but I wish a newer game would have that mode.

I'll just stick to GB Tetris then until a future game comes out has Push Mode.



Donjwolf commented on Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley Re-Tools Its Ite...:

@LUIGITORNADO Buy Farming Simulator or Farming Simulator 2014 then.

I dunno why people don't like these updates. It makes farming loads more convenient, with a bigger backpack holding 255 at a time, and being able to chop trees and mine without selecting the tool first. I find these changes awesome, and sure beats wasting time getting the tools out just to chop ONE log, or running back and forth from site to your house just to drop off stuff for storage because there's no room.

I'd get things a lot faster in a day with these changes. Right now the game sounds way more appealing to me than Story of Seasons.



Donjwolf commented on Review: Farming Simulator 14 (3DS):

@Windy, the first game was digital only in NA (I assume you live in NA), but FS 14 got a physical release too, hence the price increase. I'll get this game sometime (on the Vita) but I'm rather broke right now and I need to save for other 3DS games that's coming out this year.
