DrWadsy commented on Review: Aliens: Infestation (DS):

This is pretty fair. I loved the movie, so I really enjoyed the setting, fan-service etc. If you're not a fan of the movies though I can easily see how this would be kinda dissapointing. It's pretty linear, and feels like it shouldn't be.

One thing that bugged me that I don't see mentioned is the illogical placement of some health and ammo items. A few times in the game I'd leave the Save Room, and in the next room find a hidden area with a health pack and ammo, which were useless since the save room recharges everything anyway. Minor point, but those things would have been far more useful in areas away from save points



DrWadsy commented on Review: Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 (DS):

@6 Just in case you're serious - all DQ art is done by Akira Toriyama, who is also famous for the Dragonball series. It's not unfair to say his style across both franchises is similar.



DrWadsy commented on Talking Point: Why No Plans for GBA on 3DS Vir...:

I'm going for option D.

Though if you're looking for reason why they're not releasing them in general here's my 2 cents.

Remember how people complained e when Ninty announced that the (free) GBA games wouldn't have save states, or VC menus etc? Maybe whatever they're doing to get GBA running on the 3DS prohibits them from adding anything like that, and so it doesn't really work as a proper sellable product.

That's my guess anyway. Soon they'll fix that, and we'll see them as downloadable titles and all will be right with the world.



DrWadsy commented on Feature: Remembering the Game Boy Advance:

I still love my GBA games, hoping for more than just the 10 ambassador releases (though I'll manage if thats all there is)

My nearly 3 year old currently plays with my old GBA SP, and he loves it



DrWadsy commented on A New Dragon Quest Announcement Approaches:

Keen for this. Swords was not great.... Hopefully DQX will just add even more awesome that is the Wii's last year

Although a 3DS DQ would be welcome, I don't see them making XI for it, just because (so far) it hasn't got the massive user base that the DS (or the Wii, I suppose) has. Then again, that seems to be changing, so who knows?



DrWadsy commented on Professor Layton's Last Specter Out in October:

Oh hell yes This was a must have, even if they'd left out the London Life bonus, but I'm stoked they've kept it in .... Dunno how accurate 100 hours is though, seems a bit high... Still, this will be awesome



DrWadsy commented on Join Forces With this Dragon Quest Monsters: J...:

Tiny point - monster recruiting is not unique to the Joker sub-series, it's part of the monsters sub-series. Joker is just the name of the DQM games on the DS.

And in all fairness @5 - it's also your opinion that it looks the same as pokemon. Having played the first Joker game, and several DS pokemon games I'd agree with Oregano, they are actual 3D models and look much better than pokemon... But of course, that's just my opinion



DrWadsy commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Makes Bold Move with t...:

Definietly good enough for me. I was always going to buy at launch, and the $350 AUD price point was what i expected. Does it bother me that they've dropped the price? No, more 3DS users can only be a good thing.

To be fair, I should admit that once I'd traded in my XL and a bunch of old games I ended up handing over $14 cash for my 3DS , so that means that each games is costing me less than a dollar
