Gamer of 20 years, Not slowing down

Male, United States

I grew up playing the NES and the N64 and consider that era to be the one that holds my most treasured gaming memories. I do not however feel that the more recent Nintendo games are of any less quality, as I love them all and will continue to play them well into the future.

Considering how few of these types of games are being made today I really hope this game turns out to be a winner! Claiming to make a spiritual successor to Banjo Kazooie instantly puts out fairly high expectations for this game and I can only hope that they pull it off.

I have been playing this game for about a week now and so far it has been a nice little time waster when I am not busy. The free to play mechanic doesn't bother me since I don't play match 3 puzzle games for long periods anyway.



Dpishere commented on Review: Paparazzi (Wii U eShop):

Seeing as I don't have many friends play games with I really have no reason to get this game and even if I did I think I would be able to find a better game to play.

I have to agree with him there! Amiibo have so much potential and right now they are just beginning to utilize it well. It will be interesting to see how they are used in future games since Codename Steam's Amiibo use is actually pretty cool!



Dpishere commented on Review: Flipnote Studio 3D (3DS eShop):

If I was better at drawing I am sure that I would love an app like this. Though I have to admit that the prospect of creating photographic flipnotes does have me tempted to try it!

The Monster Hunter series in particular can be fairly tough to get into unless you at least understand the basics. I remember when my parents bought me the original Monster Hunter for ps2 back in the day and I was so confused that I gave up after a few hours in and never played it again. Then once I saw that Monster Hunter Tri for Wii was cheap I decided that I would give the series another go and I ended up loving it and have been a big fan of the series ever since! Wouldn't have been possible without the guidance of Tri's online community so I thank them for that!

Seems like good business sense to me though fans will still complain anyway. When system sales aren't particularly high Nintendo has to maximise their profits and they did that by making only what they were sure would sell. We don't have to like it but we aren't Nintendo, they have their reasons for the things they do.

With me still owning a launch 3DS my interest in the console has waned a little bit over the years but with my New 3DS arriving in the mail tomorrow I have a feeling my handheld addiction will be in effect once again! I just wanted a 3DS that could relatively keep up with my Wii U's Miiverse and Internet Browser and this looks like it will do that nicely! If you are like me and own both current gen Nintendo systems then you likely will have more games this year than you have time to play, at least that is how it is for me! Owning a Nintendo handheld is a must.



Dpishere commented on Review: IRONFALL Invasion (3DS eShop):

Seems like a pretty solid third person shooter, though I will have to try out the free trial to be sure. If I like it then I may pick it up for when I want some shooter action.

This has me really excited since 90's RARE titles were pretty much all I played back then and if a studio with former members is trying to reproduce that magic then you can be sure I will be keeping an eye on them, especially since they want to create a spiritual successor to Banjo Kazooie which is one of my all time favorite games! I wish them luck!



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

@ricklongo I actually like reading the reviews to find out if the game is right for me. I just don't want an arbitrary number thrown out telling how good they think a game is when those numbers can be used to compare games and could be taken as since a game got a 9 then it is better than a game that got an 8, which oftentimes I disagree with. Reviews I like, scores I think we could live without.
