FluxOwl commented on Talking Point: Another Look at the News - 22nd...:

If they do make a CPP XL, it's going to be the size of a lunch tray, hahaha.

I'm pretty torn on the XL. On one hand, the color choices are...pretty poor (I'd love a midnight purple one), and I'm concerned how some of the VC games will look on it, but I like the bigger screens, the new Select/Home/Start buttons, and that the touch screen isn't surrounded by a dust-collecting crevice.

I hope the stylus holder is on the side of the system, like it was with the DS Lite. That would be awesome.



FluxOwl commented on Feature: Our Top Ten eShop Games:

I don't have enough eshop games to name my top 10 (unless you count the ambassador games), but here are my top 5:
5. Super Mario Land
4.Rayman GBC
3. Pushmo
2. Game and Watch Gallery 2
1. Sakura Samurai



FluxOwl commented on Shantae eShop Release Gets Closer:

Eh, I didn't really enjoy Risky's Revenge, so this one probably isn't for me.

And is it just me, or do the number of platforming games on 3DS VC vastly outweigh the other genres?



FluxOwl commented on Review: Amoebattle (DSiWare):

@BoogilyWoogily I would've paid more for better audio. If WayForward can charge $12 for what is now a 2 year old (but still very excellent) Shantae game...idk, I'm glad you guys were able to keep the price down, but I wish you hadn't decontented the game to do so.



FluxOwl commented on Talking Point: What New Super Mario Bros. 2 Me...:

And to think, all this backlash could've been avoided if they'd just named the game New Super Luigi Bros

I'm interested (and will probably get it unless Nintendo decides to put SMB3 or SMW on the 3DS virtual console), but I really wish Nintendo would give us some more diverse 3DS games than just every Mario-styled title. Or at least spread them out more; having less than a year between the release of 2 Mario platformers (although they're fundamentally different) is a little irritating.



FluxOwl commented on "Too Many Hurdles" to Ni No Kuni DS Translation:

Wait, I'm a little confused. Is this DS game the same "version" as the PS3 game (as in, they're both Wrath of the White Witch), or a totally different game?

Either way, now Mother 3 has a playmate in the "RPG's that ironically don't get released outside of Japan due to one of their main selling points" club.



FluxOwl commented on Review: Pandora's Tower (Wii):

Definitely not for me. I don't really like the art style and overly grim aesthetic, but what's really off-putting is the monster flesh eating mechanic:

I find it a little hard to stomach



FluxOwl commented on Miyamoto: "F-Zero Could Work on Wii U":

I didn't know people loved F-Zero so much!

My only experience with the series is the Maximum Velocity GBA game, and I didn't really enjoy it. Couldn't get a handle on the controls. Was that one of the weaker F-Zero titles, or is there just a learning curve to understanding the controls?

...or do I just suck at F-Zero?



FluxOwl commented on Monsters Abound in Terry's Wonderland 3D Trailer:

With all the crazy imaginative creatures shown in the video, why is one of the most prominent monsters on the box cover a regular bear?

I'm definitely interested, but you know what I'd REALLY like to see? A 3DS sequel to Rocket Slime.
