Falk_Sturmfels commented on Review: Hazumi (3DS eShop):

I might give this a chance. I bought Siesta Fiesta in hope of a good Arkanoid-type game and was disappointed. Maybe this one is more interesting.



Falk_Sturmfels commented on Nintendo Returns to Profit as Wii U Sales Show...:

@ryanator008: Well, you know, I´m over 40 years old with young kids. Many of my old schoolfriends have kids too. I as a collector don´t want to pirate games and I i don´t wanna show my children to do that.
But some of my old schoolmates bought each of their sons a DS BECAUSE of the unbelievable easy way to play pirated games. Then the 3DS came out and the FIRST question they came to me was: "Oh, cool, with 3D, is there any good R4 in stores?"
Another guy told me later: "We don´t buy the system, we cannot play games for nothing on it."



Falk_Sturmfels commented on Nintendo 64x64: Forsaken:

Very good action game. It turned out to be pretty hard on higher levels. And sometimes you could´nt see the other hunters on their tiny bikes.



Falk_Sturmfels commented on Nintendo 64x64: Doom 64:

Well, I agree mostly with Stevens opinion. The game has an outstanding atmosphere, and the idea of a soundtrack with noises of crying babys is still frightening.
But it is very hard to find all the parts from the Lasergun, which is very important to beat the final boss. And that part kills the game, because without a guide you can get a hold of maybe one of the four parts from the Lasergun. The other three are hidden behind nasty leveldesign. For example: destroy all oil-barrells in a level exept ONE particular. Then you reach other exits to further levels. If you don´t know it (like almost everybody without a guide) you suddenly make a leveljump forward (around six or seven levels, if I remember right) and miss Lasergunparts.
As a result you stand in front of the final boss and can´t do s...t. That kind of gamedesign destroyed back in the days the great and dark game for me.

Edit: Mmmh, I searched through youtube and found a video from a guy killing the final boss without the Laser. Mmh. I might try it again someday ... closing that old open file.



Falk_Sturmfels commented on Video: This Awesome Games Done Quick Super Met...:

@Zorkthedork: Which is even more crazy. Watched that video with the guy playing Zelda with his feet? Again, I don´t get it. How long you have to train for something like that?
I´m happy that my wife doesn´t complain about me playing so much games. I can´t imagine what she would say if I would start training for speedruns or sitting half naked on the floor with my feet on the gamepad.
"Look, kids, daddy finally lost his mind completely."



Falk_Sturmfels commented on Soapbox: Why Region Locking Is A Total Non-Issue:

Ahhhh, I love dumb discussions like this. No reason for Nintendo to change it. All the hellraisers should have a simple look at the sales of most of the imported games. We don´t talk about million sellers, which are hold back by Nintendo. We talk about games who sell just 25000 pcs in 12 months in our regions, and thats from Nintendos point of view not even peanuts. The important games with high sales are coming quick enough these days.
But okay, if anybody wants to play a Dating Sim, great, then buy a japanese 3DS and raise hell about a region-lock the mass market doesn´t even know.
