edhe commented on Code Name S.T.E.A.M Demo Available Now on the ...:

It's alright, but I found the enemy movement phases quite tedious.

I did have my eye on it, but I'm not too sure now - I'm sure it was streamlined for the demo, but it didn't really appeal to me.

I've only done the first set of maps, but I will try to get the other ones done. The new Fire Emblem is looking much more appealing to me.



edhe commented on Flipnote Studio 3D Free Download Details Point...:

I was really looking forward to Flipnote, but if there's no way to share them, other than locally, I can't really see the point.

Unless there was some way to share them by grabbing the files from the SD card (which would probably involve 3rd party codecs), I have literally no way of getting access to anyone else's animations to watch. I don't know any great animators with a 3DS who'd be willing to hook 3DSes up, and even then, I'd prefer a wider variety.



edhe commented on Reminder: The Nintendo Network Premium Promoti...:

I need to spend £30 to reach my next coupon, but I can't decide what to buy. I thought I'd go for Smash Bros., but that would leave me £30 from my next coupon. I considered Wonderful 101, which costs £40, leaving me with 100 points overflow - something that's slightly more tolerable for me.

But I'm not really in any position to splurge out - I picked up several games on Steam during the winter sale, and I don't think I can justify spending £30 to get £5 back. There isn't anything on the store in that price range that I'm desperate to buy anyway.


If I'm correct, you'll have plenty of time to request and redeem the codes - they just stop counting your contributions at the end of the 31st.



edhe commented on Review: Heptrix (Wii U eShop):

They couldn't even use an appealing custom font.

I'm willing to bet this version is inherently flawed because of its use of Heptonimoes. Please tell me it doesn't use all 108 of them!? It must be a nightmare trying to get them to tesselate properly!



edhe commented on Nintendo Outlines Generous eShop Publication P...:

This whole conversation reminds me of a comedy show I went to see called "Christ on a Bicycle". It was a show that used religion as a jumping off point (much like his others on other topics such as Mortality) to make his jokes and fuel his comedic routines.

And would you know it, a load of Christian busybodies heard about the show and decided to follow his tour and picket the venues declaring to everyone that the show was sinful despite the fact that there was nothing in the show that really attacked Christians.

"I hate Binding of Isaac. I heard that the owner made it because he hated christianity."

I'm not a practicing Christian, and only I have the right to choose whether I can play this game or not. As it happens, my Brother gifted me it on steam (shortly after the Niclas WiiU teaser), so I probably won't be buying it on the WiiU.



edhe commented on Resident Evil Creator Shinji Mikami Is A Fan O...:

I think he's being a bit harsh on Rebecca. Surely it's ok to have a meek character for the sake of variety if all the other female characters are going to be fierce independant women who don't need no man.



edhe commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd October (Europe):

I'll probably get Bayonetta 1 & 2 - before the NNP program ends. I might find myself buying some other things just to knock to total above the 500 point threshold.



edhe commented on Nintendo 64x64: WCW/nWo Revenge:

The things that sets Revenge apart from No Mercy for me are the intro sequence & end credits.

My favourite wrestlers were Stevie Ray & Booker T, Eric Bischoff (with his K.O punches & roundhouse kicks) and Brickowski, because he looked so ridiculous.

But I do prefer WWF No Mercy - not least for its CAW mode.

edhe commented on Nintendo Download: 25th September (Europe):

That KORG DSN-12 was out of the blue.

I was speaking to someone about it earlier this year (a followup to the first KORG app on the 3DS), and the thing that is supposed to set this one apart from the other (or anything else currently available on the eShop) is that it has a full blown synthesiser - not just samples. I might have a look into it.

The only other thing on the download list that catches my eye is Nobunaga's Ambition - but I worry that it would be too complicated to understand. You really need one of KOEI's thick instruction manuals on hand to play one of their games, and the digital ones on offer are just inadequate. Having already bought Romance of the Three Kingdoms IV on the eShop, I can only imagine it's going to be just as welcoming.

I'll also be picking up Fantasy Life, albeit as a physical copy.



edhe commented on Weirdness: A Pokémon Fan Broke into the White...:


No you can't. Not without passing through a security checkpoint first. The street is patrolled by armed police and an officer is stationed at the door.

@BLP I think my initial problem with your statement was that you were assuming that the armed guards in the White House gardens were ready to shoot him in a moments notice. If some loon found their way into Buckingham Palace or Downing Street, they'd certainly have guns drawn on them when the guards arrived.

But you're right about it being seemingly harder to get into such sites in Britain, compared to this incident. Hasn't always been that way though...



edhe commented on Activision Confirms That Call of Duty: Advance...:

I really despair at this sort of news.

I can't believe Wii U owners are really incapable of buying big budget third party games, but the proof is in the pudding.

I don't give a damn about Skylanders as I'm not in it's targeted demographic (ditto Ubisoft with Just Dance), so it looks like I won't be buying any Activision games on the WiiU in the forseeable future.

Now watch all the big third parties join the conga line! Capcom. Konami. Maybe EA will finally have their excuse for dropping the WiiU at such an early stage...



edhe commented on Nintendo Download: 14th August (Europe):

Wow! I'm really beginning to wish I never spent £50 on Assassin's Creed IV on launch. It's not that I don't want to support Ubisoft, but that price would have been very tempting. I wouldn't have thought twice.



edhe commented on Video: Hyperkin RetroN 5 Review - King Of The ...:

I'd been waiting for the Retron to release in Europe for ages. It still isn't here yet.

I ended up getting a SNES (then modding it), because to be fair, Hyperkin have been terrible with this whole affair.

I'd always been interested in getting something that would take up less space than multiple consoles (and be easier to connect up to my TV), but was worried about the quality of emulation when compared to the original hardware. The review seemed to skip over a lot of these issues - surely the emulation isn't perfect. Specifically, I've been hearing that emulated games of this nature (even those on the WiiU VC) have trouble reproducing the sound and music to the quality of the original hardware.

Anyway, if Hyperkin had released this console earlier this year as scheduled (in the U.K, of course - it's probably going to be gold dust here when it releases in "september"), and had I not spent cash on a SNES (plus more to get someone to apply a modification to it), and a Megadrive, I would still probably have considered this.

But I've made my choice. No ragrets.



edhe commented on Tekken 7 Revealed At Evo 2014, Platforms Uncon...:

I've bought Tekken Tag Tournament 2 on the WiiU within the last month (and at a severe discount), and to be honest, it's all the Tekken I'll need for years to come.

Isn't it regarded as a pretty comprehensive version? I haven't been following Tekken over the years, but there's loads of characters, unlockables and replay value.



edhe commented on Nintendo Supported Our Vision The Most, Says D...:

@Shambo Now I feel silly. I own both No More Heroes games, but I haven't personally played Madworld and Eternal Darkness.

Maybe it's the first instance of the MF bomb. Prove me wrong, everybody...

As for the game itself, I hadn't heard anything about it prior to the E3 reveal (which I couldn't see first hand). It's telling that it was previously an Xbox 360/PS3 game - Nintendo would never have been able to snag a game like that if if was heading for the Xbox One or PS4 - Sony or Microsoft wouldn't have let a game go like that.

More for us then, I'll look out for it, but like I said, having not followed the other consoles last generation, I knew very nothing about the game. It looks violent.



edhe commented on Senran Kagura 2 Website Updates With New Gamep...:

That last paragraph was slick. I especially loved how it has a hyperlink to a story on another of ONM's hysterical articles against Senran Kagura,

It was completely unnecessary, and can only have been included to piggyback on the page hits similar articles have received on the topic. I guess you felt it would just be too shameful to do a straight article on another ONM dope telling us all how perverted we all are for accepting this game on the 3DS.

Or maybe you missed the bus.

I look forward to the community being needlessly rocked to its core as we all accuse each other of being paedophiles and freedom hating communists.

Can I leave another caption?

"Harrowing images deep from within the Wonka factory of the manufacturing process of their new confectionery - molten lead coated MegaWatts clone lollipops. Willy Wonka declared clinically insane."



edhe commented on Satoru Iwata Believes Nintendo Can Establish a...:

I do worry that with a second business alongside the videogame one, and with the difficulties Nintendo are currently having with the WiiU, that Nintendo may be more inclined to sell off the console arm, were this new venture to prove successful.

Bill Gates has been quoted as saying he would fully support the spinning off of the Xbox brand, if the current head deemed it neccesary, and I'd hate this to happen to Nintendo.

On the other hand, if Nintendo stick to videogames, they live and die by their fortunes in that business. It's a tough one, but I'd have to say, with how they're struggling, it might be for the best if Nintendo attempt to diversify. Hopefully, it'll pay off.



edhe commented on Nintendo Provides Some Context to 2013's Tomod...:

The way I see it, if it wasn't in (or supposed to be in) the Japanese version, no-one can complain about it not being in the Western release. What, are Nintendo supposed to rewrite the code to include a gay option? Are Nintendo suddenly "problematic" for not including the gay option in the game?

With that being said, of all the Nintendo games released in recent years, this was the one that really 'ought to have had the gay option in it. You are playing with your own personal avatar, and if you as a male don't personally find women sexually attractive, then I can understand if the person would feel a bit miffed about it - enough to want to pass up on the game.

By the same token, a devout Christian would be well within their rights to pass up the game if it included themes they didn't agree with.



edhe commented on Nintendo Shows Off Upcoming Golden Sun and F-Z...:

I remember owning one of the Golden Sun games. I think there was a feature that allowed you to import your progress into the second one via a password. I probably owned the second one in that case.

I look forward to trying Golden Sun, and I'm sure they'll probably release the sequel too.



edhe commented on Citizens of Earth Coming To Wii U And 3DS eSho...:


It was inspired in part by Earthbound, yes.

Then again, if Nintendo is unwilling to give us a genuine follow-up in the Mother series (let alone localise the ones already available in Japan), I say we should take what we can get.

@Anguspuss As long as Atlus is involved, we can probably expect to wait a year.
