Drac_Mazoku commented on Review: Breath of Fire (Wii U eShop / Super Ni...:

Uh? The game was more a 7/10 for me. I have a tons of good memory of this game. The soundtrack was excellent (better than 2 IMHO), the day and night cycle was something I never seen done like this in a standard-RPG back then. The Dragon transformation were really fun. The fact that your character had active skill while on the map gave this RPG more interractivity than other at the time. And the art design was really unique, so was its battle design, with isometric view, lot of animation, and actual life bar that goes down when you were hitting enemies. This make battles feel more alive. Quite frankly, I can't see how this could even go below 6/10 when you take all that into consideration VS the time it came.

I'm not following this series one bit, but everytime I'm watching those screenshots or art from the game, I'm always wondering: Is this really about soccer/football??? This almost seems like a Shonen show with superpower, almost sentai-like...They all look so crazy, and I wouldnt think it was about soccer if there was not a soccer ball in the picture...

We now have a list of 295 songs if we count DLC (221 standard + 74 DLC). People who are just starting this game will be busy for a looooooong while :)

In any case, I know what I'll be doing tonigh. 6 new songs to perfect. After 350 hours with the game, I don't know when I will stop...

Finally, this mark the last batch of DLC that was in the initial leak (and that was 100% true). Right now, we are in the dark about the future DLC. I guess we'll see in 2 weeks...

@Vineleaf But we don't know if they will still base their choice about bringing the 3DS game on the performance on the Wii one, even if indeed, it came out of nowhere. Nintendo only seem to be seeing number, and if we're talking about Rhythm Heaven Fever, that's no good for our chance of a localization of the 3DS one.

I know the Wii game didnt sold at all outside Japan. Still PLEASE, GIVE THIS TO ME!!! I will be praying everyday for it!!! Even if it was digital only (which I am with my 3DS anyway) to cut the chance of them making loss on a physical release. Rhythm Tengoku is one of my favorite series. I have so much stuff from it (GBA game, japanese guide, 3 versions of Rhythm Tengoku Gold: Japanese, English, French and obviously many OST). With the way NOA is actinv since a while I fear the worst, but I SOOOOOO want it!!

@Caryslan High-Five That's exactly what I would REALLY want. A N2DS. I had in my possession all 3 models, and the 2DS is BY FAR my favorite. Since I don't care about 3D, for me it's the best form factor, I love how stable it is (I don't like all the wobble of the clamshell), and it's just so crisp...But I was real, there was no way a N2DS would exist, so I was ready to buy the N3DS Day 1, anything as long as its not an XL.

@TonLoco Yeah I have already a good list of games I want to play on Vita. The only reason I was not buying it at this point is because I was 100% focusing blindly on my 3DS and nothing else, and already have a backlog with it. But at this point, might as well do it since the money was already saved for the N3DS, so using it on a Vita instead of a N3DSXL I don't want seem like a better choice no?

Drac_Mazoku commented on Nintendo of America Issues Non-Statement on th...:

@Mus1cLov3r Oh yes, I was REALLY willing to buy a N3DS. I want to play Xenoblade. I want the faster CPU. I just don't want another XL ever. I had 2 XL in my life. Both of them looked really ugly compared to my previous OG and my current 2DS. The screen is not as sharp and bright, and with such a low resolution, it's really painful to watch on the XL. Also, my first XL got a cracked hinge after one year of EXTREME but normal usage. My second one, after only 1 month have become REALLY wobbly, and made an horrible clicking sound, like my first one did before one day it got the cracked hinge. So when they released the crystal blue 2DS, I sold my XL once and for all, waiting for the N3DS to be released. A smaller model was the only thing I was willing to buy. So yeah, I'm pretty sure I will keep my 2DS for now instead of upgrading to something I don't want. I will miss Xenoblade, but just one game will not make me buy another XL model, sorry.

And my personal view is really beside the point. Not relasing both model, giving less option to begin with is a stupid move from Nintendo, no matter if you care or not because you always wanted an XL.

Most wanted game for the system ever since the first game was released in Japan only (almost made me purchase a Japanese 3DS just for it). I was a BIG player of Project Diva back on the PSP (I kinda stopped on Project Diva F, but still), so it's a must buy for me, no matter the price. Here's all my money Sega.

My reaction: I went from Day 1 purchase to no purchase at all. It's their loss not mine. In fact, it opened my eyes. I think my money would be better spent on getting a different system (the Vita, also at 200$) instead of wasting money on something I already have, only a little bit superior. To think that if Nintendo would just have released both model like....EVERYWHERE ELSE, I would still continue to throw my money at them blindly, but oh well, it's for the better. Thanks Nintendo for screwing it up :)

Drac_Mazoku commented on Reaction: Nintendo Direct Went Crazy With Reve...:

Yeah, the overall Direct was great. But yeah too, the whole thing about no announcement about the regular N3DS in NA really killed all the joy I had. It went from a 9/10 Direct to a 5/10 one. It was THAT important for me. I was watching the direct only for this, and now I cannot even buy the model I wanted. I'm not even sure I want to buy the N3DSXL since I hate that model. Which is a shame, as I was ready to give my money Day 1 for the regular one. Their loss it seems, not mine. I may just end up buying a Vita instead of a N3DSXL with the money I was saving for it.

What were they thinking for North America. Do they thought that not announcing a standard N3DS will go unnoticed? Even more when EVERYONE ELSE in the world has it? I was ready to throw money at them Day 1, not so much anymore. What a waste...

Drac_Mazoku commented on Review: Fairune (3DS eShop):

@AVahne sure thing. I was just listing the new things on the 3DS to show what you get at least for paying. I can't tell about Android. I have an iOS device, and a HATE playing on it. They released an awesome version of Sonic 1 & 2 on it...too bad it controls like ****. Even a game like Final Fantasy Dimensions, a simple Turn-Based RPG, I can't stand because of touch control. So for me, I will always pay for a 3DS port if I can, even if there's a free version on iOS. Like I said though, I can't talk about android.

Drac_Mazoku commented on Review: Fairune (3DS eShop):

@AVahne Well, on the 3DS, you get Button control (always the main reason why I don't mind paying, I HATE touch control), an extra dungeon, an extra hidden item, and an extra enemy. Meaning it's a more complete version than the iOS one.

Drac_Mazoku commented on Review: Fairune (3DS eShop):

This game was a blast. Got all the achievements for it because of how much I loved it...BUT the first playthrough (without any outside help, just by yourself) is where most of the fun is at. Some of those puzzles can be hard, but the feeling when you beat the game is great!

As for a game it reminds me of, it's not Ys, but more Hydlide on the NES. Overhead square world where you move screen by screen a la Zelda. 3 Fairies to find. No story to move you forward, just item to use here and there. Yup, more like Hydlide...if Hydlide was good that is :)

Drac_Mazoku commented on Bravely Default DLC Set to Play a Festive Tune...:

The more songs we buy as DLC, the more SE will see that we are interrested in Theatrhythm, and the more chance we will have to see a release outside Japan of Theatrhythm Dragon Quest, even if as a series, DQ is dead outside Japan. SO if you can afford it, buy all the DLC people, if only to show our interrest.

For me, I'm already at 256 hours with the game and I'm far from finished. So paying an extra 12$ for a game that already gave me so much playtime is a no-brainer (and 1$ per song is a standard in rhythm games, sometimes, it's even 2$. So even if the base game had so much content, it's still not like they're stealing from us with those DLC prices, just that they were WAY too generous with the base game).

Yup, saw that this week-end. If it come over here (but this is DQ, so...), I'm buying this day 1, along with any future DLC they might release. Though they also announced a second wave of DLC this week-end too for Curtain Call (with music from Chrono Trigger and Secret of Mana), and we're still waiting for the Bravely Default ones....what's up with that SE??? I WANT THOSE DLC NOW!!!

I'm getting Fairune and League of Heroes this week. Both seem like cool little Action-RPG :)

Also, about the Nicalis sales, please people, don't support anything from Nicalis with your money, they don't deserve it. Quick reminder about a problem from many months ago that was never solved:

http://www.nintendolife.com/forums/eshop/angry_at_nicalis_game_destroying_bug_in_1001_spikes

Do you remember when they said they will patch the game quickly after release? Yeah right. So many months later, 1001 spikes is still on my 3DS, unable to go beyond the title screen. They also never replied back to me (obviously). Pathetic.

Ah, the Atlus taxe. I can understand for the physical release since they actually give tons of goodies....but for the digital??? Hopefully, Atlus is also the King of the Sales on the 3DS. It will be sold below 20$ at one point, so I'll wait for that instead.

Drac_Mazoku commented on Transparent Blue and Red 2DS Models Hit North ...:

mmph...I went from OG, to the XL (which got a cracked hinge so I went...), to the 2DS, then went back to the XL because reading was hurting my eyes on the 2DS...BUT other than that, the 2DS was my favorite model, and I'm already finding the clamshell design of my second XL to be unbearable with all its wobbling. I guess I will just endure the tinier screen, because this 2DS model is just too cool to pass, so if it comes to Canada, I guess I will be back to the 2DS until the New 3DS is announced in North America.

On a side note, the best model for me would be a New 2DS XL with stereo speakers BUT that actually sound as loud as the 2DS (3DS speakers, even in stereo, sound so tiny). If they could release that, I would throw money non-stop at Nintendo.

Drac_Mazoku commented on "Pre-Download" Service to Kick Off With Super ...:

Come on, why complaining about internal space. If you plan on going digital on the Wii U, it's obvious you will need an HDD, and Nintendo was kind enough to let us chose the external one we really want. Nintendo may be behind on a lot of things, but really, giving us the option of selecting our HDD without any installation was a great move, so I don't understand why people complain.

Personally, once I decided to go digital only on my Wii U (less load time, no sound from disk reading, no disc swap, Digital Deluxe Promotion which means cheaper than retails on release date....I can't see no reason NOT to go digital except if you like collecting stuff or want to sell/trade back your games), I bought a Seagate 2TB HDD with its own power-source (for less than 100$, so it's not really a big amount of $ if you go for even lower than that, like 500GO), plugged it in the usb port of my Wii U, and after an auto-formatting: Voilà, no more space problem for my Wii U.

I have a very specific question that can only be answered by reading the japanese manual I guess. The original 3DS had a limitation of 300 titles at the same time on the SD card. I was wondering, with the new hardware, did they also removed this limitation? I hope someone can answer me this if they can found the information in the manual.

I bought this before even buying Triple Deluxe. It was AWESOME! In fact so awesome, that this mini-game is what made me purchase Triple Deluxe in the end, only to have another 4 stages. This mini-game is THAT good. Hence why I was so sad when I finally got my 14 Platinum and 2 Platinum trophies :( I wish to have a game with this engine with 50+ songs from the entire Kirby history.

Drac_Mazoku commented on Looks Like You Can Only Install 300 Games And ...:

@Spaceboy40 Quite frankly, I'm pretty sure it's not something that can be fix easily. I have no proof of that, but I'm sure like many others in the comments that it is more a technical issue with the 3DS than it is a random number they selected because they tought no one would get there. I'm sure you notice how slow the 3DS has become with so many apps when going between games using the home menu. A good few seconds delay before you can finally select the other game and start playing. I guess that if they were allowing 500-600 games on the 3DS, it would just cause tons of problem for the system itself. After all, the 3DS is FAR from being a power beast.

I'll learn to live with the 300 limits. After all, if I managed to reach that limit, and REALLY want more, SD card swapping is always a solution. 2 physical SD card is already way better than a shelf filled with 300+ games.

After reading so many post about how it is in the manual, I feel really stupid now. I guess this is a non-news then. But I still feel kinda excited to reach this limit soon. Maybe it will help me limiting my purchase a little and start selecting which game I want to keep and which game I don't want. 300 games on one device without changing any cart is kinda awesome anyway :)

In other news, North America is still waiting for the patch to play Giana Sisters on the gamepad with sound. Europe got it, why are we still waiting. I love to play on my Gamepad (more than on my TV), so I've put the game on hold because I was waiting for this patch...

@Knuckles I think we understand each other perfectly. Even if it was a 100$ price tag, once you sold your soul to Sega, there's no turning back. I'll be the stupid one who'll be buying this when its released for 30$ only because the word SEGA was mentionned. Curse you Teyon!!!

Because the way it plays is different? Yes, From the Abyss retail may be a more complete experience, though I've always heard it was an very easy ride. Think of this as From the Abyss Ultra Challenging Edition :) Since you can't compensate your weakness with leveling (even better gears will not be as strong as you think), it's more about skill than slashing your way through every enemy in your path. If you don't see this as a RPG, but more an action game, you may appreciate more

@Windy awesome. I wish when I will be old enough to have grandkids too that I will still be passionate about gaming. It's really a struggle each day to accept that I'm still addicted at 30, but hey, we all know something we love to do to be "sane" in life I guess :)

Well, in a way, it's like gettin just different dungeon design, but you're indeed doing the same thing. Like, let's say, PSO, where you will always be going through the same 4 area over and over again, but to get better loot. I find the battles really fun and intense on harder difficulty too. So if you like chapter 1, chances are, you'll like the other chapter, if you know that this will mainly main different enemies, different dungeon design and different boss. It's a loot-driven game with no leveling. If you like getting better and better loots, then you'll find enjoyement for a while like I did.
