A gamer for life. Nuff Said.

Male, United States

I am an avid gamer who loves many different games as well as hiking. A game is only as good as the lasting impression it leaves on you.

Dpullam commented on GX Hunter Armor Stars in Penultimate Monster H...:

I don't think anyone can complain about this being the last dlc pack since this game now boasts an absurd amount of quests and armor choices to choose from. This game could easily steal hundreds of hours from your life without any dlc at all. Free stuff is just icing on the cake, but I'll admit that I have been taking a break from this game since I have too many games I'd rather play right now. Sometimes I don't want a timesink.



Dpullam commented on Scalebound was Originally Planned to be a Wii ...:

I am definitely eager to get my hands on ScaleBound, but the only open world I'm looking forward to playing Xenoblade Chronicles X since I already have the collector's edition pre-ordered. Besides, I don't even have an Xbox One yet. No reason to get excited over something I can't play, besides Kingdom Hearts 3 that is. Perhaps Fallout 4 as well. It would have been interesting to see how this game turned out on the Wii/Wii U since Platinum is normally very good at making quality titles for Nintendo systems. At least this article gives us some food for thought!



Dpullam commented on First Impressions: Taking A Shot At Fatal Fram...:

I know I'll be giving the trial version a go once it gets released. I just wish I could have the option of buying the physical version since I'm not an enormous fan of digital purchases. I guess if I like the game enough, I won't mind buying it digitally. Especially since I have never played a Fatal Frame game before.



Dpullam commented on Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash Could Possibly be the La...:

Well, I know I will be getting the game at some point. I might not be getting it at launch though. Chibi-Robo has suffered bad sales for its entire existence, which is a real shame since the games have so much charm in them. I really hope Zip Lash turns out to be a sales success, but the outcome is not looking good to me. It is just the type of series that can't seem to find its audience no matter how many times they create a new game. Still, the people that do play the new game will love it I'm sure. I have heard plenty of positive reception about it.



Dpullam commented on Excellent Shovel Knight Sales Prove That Indie...:

@faint That is only because the game is new. My point is that it won't have the sales success that Shovel Knight had. It can still be a success, but getting the number of sales Shovel Knight has won't happen. That is practically a guarantee.



Dpullam commented on Excellent Shovel Knight Sales Prove That Indie...:

Obviously each game will have different degrees of success, as all indie games aren't created equal but I get what he is saying. I guess really depends on the type of audiences you are developing your game for. Shovel Knight is the type of game that easily fits on a Nintendo console, so its success wasn't a surprise. Yet, there are plenty of other quality indie games like Year Walk and Affordable Space Adventures that don't get anywhere near that success, even with GamePad exclusive features. I think people tend to gravitate towards retro style games more naturally, games that evoke memories from their childhood, because when a consoles sells as low as the Wii U you know most of the sales are from die-hard fans of Nintendo. They are the ones most likely to buy indie games.



Dpullam commented on Preview: Fabulous Fashion and Questionable Gam...:

This will probably end up being one of the few Zelda games I won't be getting. Well, if I do get it, it'll have to be at a discount price. It baffles me that Nintendo would create a Zelda game that can't be played solo effectively, especially since they are usually very good at striking a strong balance between both game modes. It just doesn't make sense to me.



Dpullam commented on Editorial: Nintendo is a Toy Company, and That...:

I don't mind Nintendo being branded as a toy company. After all, I consider their future to be like Walt Disney. Theme parks, video games, movies, toys... In twenty years who knows where Nintendo will be, but I'm sure it'll be somewhere along the lines of what I said. At least, I hope so. That's exactly what I'd love to see for my favorite game company besides Bethesda.



Dpullam commented on Natsume’s Pocky & Rocky With Becky Arrives O...:

My interest in the game is kind of low. I have heard good things about the Medabots series though, so I wouldn't mind seeing those games show up on the eShop. I'll need to see Nintendo Life's review before I get too excited though.



Dpullam commented on Konami Denies That It Is Walking Away From AAA...:

I can never see them stopping development on Metal Gear so these rumors and reports can't be completely true. Even Castlevania which is one of their flagship series is guaranteed to be in their game rotation. (Who knows what form though.) Sucks how both the creator of Castlevania and Metal Gear have parted ways from Koonami. These are definitely controversial times for this company.



Dpullam commented on First Impressions: Digging into Shovel Knight:...:

Looks like all the work being put into this new campaign is paying off! I'm always looking for another reason to boot up Shovel Knight again. Heck, I'll probably be playing through the original campaign again simply because it is so fun to play. That's the only reason I need. I'm kind of busy with Donkey Kong 64, Super Mario Maker, and Super Smash Bros for now though. I'll still place it near the top of my list of games to play since I enjoyed the original game so much.



Dpullam commented on Feature: The Short But Sweet Games Journalism ...:

This was a very interesting insight into Jools Watsham's early career. Makes me wish I could earn the type of opportunities he was presented with, but this also shows how unexpected life can be. Good or bad, it doesn't matter. As long as you cherish the time you have.



Dpullam commented on Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash Will Support Plenty of a...:

I'm looking to getting both this game and its amiibo, but Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer will be the only cartridge in my Nintendo 3DS for a good long while. That being said, I really dig the whip gimmick and I hope it adds a fresh coat of paint to an overdone genre of gaming. Even something as miniscule as a whip could have a great impact on the gameplay elements of said game. I have doubts that this game will sell well though.



Dpullam commented on Interview: Candlelight Studios and Bold RPG Am...:

Even with a good chip-tune soundtrack, I am simply not into 8-bit RPG games very much. They usually have a hard time holding my attention, but maybe if I am lucky the promise of modern day gameplay will make me change my tune. Not really sure what to think of the game right now, but I always enjoy supporting smaller developers. I'll look forward to more information closer to its release.



Dpullam commented on Men Suspected of Planning Pokémon World Cham...:

I can only think of all the scared children that would of been at the Pokemon World Championship if these two would have suceeded in their plan. Why someone would want to harm them is beyond me. It'd make me sick to my stomach, so I'm very relieved to hear they are behind bars. (Until their trial has commenced at least.)



Dpullam commented on Preview: Getting Inside The Curiously Undemand...:

Regardless of the low challenge this game will have, it is still one of my most anticipated games coming out this year. I only have to wait a single month to get my hands on it, so it is probably best if I wait until its release to form any opinions about it. Besides, housing designing was easily my favorite part of Animal Crossing New Leaf. I can't argue with getting to create new homes and have new chances to be around some of my favorite animal friends. I can't wait to create some new gaming memories. Heck, sometimes I prefer a more relaxed gaming experience where there is no true objective. If I didn't, I wouldn't of spent 700+ hours into Animal Crossing New Leaf.



Dpullam commented on Gorgeous Xenoblade Chronicles X Special Editio...:

Woe is me. I unfortunately didn't bother to check NintendoLife at around 9 o'clock last night so I missed my best chance at preordering this great looking collection. I can only hope that it becomes available again soon at either Amazon or Gamestop. I'd love to have that USB drive and 100 page artbook.



Dpullam commented on Video: Here's What Rare's Final GameCube Title...:

I really don't try to think about how the game would of turned out on a different system since I already currently own it on Xbox 360. To be honest though, I haven't actually played the game yet due to other games. I'll have to change that one of these days.



Dpullam commented on Review: The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth (New 3DS):

I'll just end up getting this game on Wii U since I won't be the only one in my family wanting to play this game. I love the creepy atmosphere this game has, and I am more than used to disgusting/disturbing games.



Dpullam commented on Nintendo Download: 27th August (North America):

I already took part in the Capcom sale and indulged myself with both the Ace Attorney Trilogy and Resident Evil Revelations. I already have Resident Evil Revelations on Wii U but I feel I would rather play it on the system it was completely designed for. As such, I won't be downloading any other games this week.



Dpullam commented on GAME Confirms Shovel Knight amiibo:

This isn't a real surprise, but I'm glad we have finally received some tangible confirmation. The real question in my mind is if Shovel Knight is coming to Super Smash Bros or not. That is all I want to know... I don't really care either way, I'm just curious.



Dpullam commented on Review: Devil's Third (Wii U):

Unfortunately, it doesn't really matter to me how good the multiplayer might be if the single player is buggy and has a poor frame rate. I usually only buy games where every aspect of them are fully functional and entertaining to play. I can't get into the multiplayer if the campaign turns out to be rubbish, especially since I'm not really into competitive multiplayer as much anymore.



Dpullam commented on Rumour: Fresh Sources Suggest Shovel Knight Is...:

Shovel Knight isn't a bad choice I think, but I'd prefer for the next new character to be Nintendo created like others have posted. It just makes me happy seeing so many classic Nintendo characters battling it out in a single game. That being said, it was only a matter of time before they started including more third party characters. Not that I mind. This is just a rumour right now though, so I won't jump on the bandwagon and believe it is real until it has been officially announced.



Dpullam commented on Poll: Is Pokkén Tournament The Wii U Release...:

This looks like the type of fighting game I COULD potentially buy, but I need more information on how the game's combat works first. If it happens to be more like Street Fighter where performing moves requires a combination of button presses I won't be getting it since those aren't my type of fighting games. I prefer games with accessibility and ease of use like Smash Bros, but I understand that not all fighting games have to be like Smash. If it ends up being a more technical fighter like I mentioned above it will be a pass. Thankfully, all of the information I have read about this game points to it being more accessible for players of all skill levels. Both casuals and hardcore gamers alike should be able to enjoy this game.



Dpullam commented on Review: 3D Gunstar Heroes (3DS eShop):

This game sounds so incredible, and I never got the chance to play it back in the day so this is the perfect time to try it out. All of the added features sound splendid as well, especially since I'm not an enormous fan of 2D action games. The added life gauge option and weapon combination changes will make this a MUCH more enjoyable experience for me. I'll definitely be getting this game soon.



Dpullam commented on Chasing Dead To Bring Horror And FPS Action To...:

Looks pretty cool to me. As long as the frame rate is good and the controls for the game are simple I'm pretty sure I'll pick this game up. I love these types of wacky games. What I don't like is unpolished/broken messes of a game. Hopefully this game won't turn out to be one of those.



Dpullam commented on Review: The Bridge (Wii U eShop):

I don't know. After playing so many impressively colorful indie titles, I'm not sure if I could appreciate a game like this. Greyscale doesn't do a whole lot for me, but if the soundtrack happens to be as good as the review mentions, I might be able to overlook the art style choice. That being said, it will probably be a long time before I consider adding this game to my collection.



Dpullam commented on Fresh SteamWorld Heist Screenshots Show Off Ne...:

I'll definitely be trying this game out! I love how Image & Form never settles for one type of game! They are always trying to expand their arsenal of genres and create new fun experiences. It helps that I love the art style they have going for this game too.



Dpullam commented on 3DS Homebrew Hacker Turns to YouTube App As La...:

This situation is starting to get a little ridiculous. Nintendo blocks one route of homebrew so he takes another one? I don't know. It just doesn't register to me. I'd never want to lose access to certain features on the Nintendo 3DS such as the eShop over a hack like this. It just isn't worth the investment in my eyes, but then again I've never been a fan of hacking in the first place.
