Freelance commented on Nintendo Download: 14th January (North America):

@Xenocity As a gamer since the ViC-20, the idea that anything below 95% (seriously? 95?) is 'terrible' is terrible. People actually think this way??? In my day, 50 was considered average, above average was 70, 80 was great, and awesome games were 90, and I still go by it now.

@spurgeonryan Don't lump me in with those guys. I buy lots of Eshop-only games. I DID say I'm getting Lionel City Builder.

@TerrapinJess If you love trains, you should get A-Train on the Eshop. It's the most indepth sim I've ever seen on a handheld. It's like holding a PC game in your hands.

@SakuraHaruka A-Train is right up your alley if you love PC sims.

I was going to wait a bit before getting this, but if the price is going to go though then I should try to get it sooner. It's already $7.89 with tax so it'd probably jump to $10+ after. I'm more interested in the world creation feature than the main mode. I hope the game has plenty of items to create your world though.

Oh, I just saw that the price is good til Jan 31st so I have a bit of time to get it before the increase.

@Spin It'd be cool if they'd just put SimCity on the Eshop, but this is Nintendo we're talking about.

I just want them to release more FF DLC tracks to Curtain Call. There's still a lot of music they could release. All the other music I like don't have enough games in the series to bother making a rhythm game out of, so I'd like them to continue updating CC.

Freelance commented on Feature: The Full Story Behind Star Fox 2, Nin...:

@liveswired For someone who said "...you try to enforce your opinions on everyone on this post," you seem to be doing the exact same thing with this phrase of yours:

"In my and many others opinion Star Fox SNES has aged terribly both aesthetically and technically," and all your posts keep enforcing your idea that what you said is 100% right.

Yeah, so you and some other people think this, but for other people, like Kirk and I, we think Star Fox hasn't aged terribly. It's sad that you think we only like it because of "nostalgia." Some games are considered classics for a reason. It has nothing to do with "nostalgia." It's my opinion that Star Fox is a great game and is the best game in the series, but remember, it's only my opinion.

You may not like our opinion, but it in NO WAY means we're wrong.

@Spacey Well, the best SF games ARE the rail shooters IMO, so they should make more of those.

@liveswired Sorry, but to me SF looks much cleaner and nicer than SF64. It still looks amazing today IMO, and I wish I could play it again on the 3DS. SF64 is a good game, but it still doesn't match the brilliance of the original.

You know how Nintendo games rarely, if ever, go down in price? That's 'cause people keep buying them at full price that Nintendo doesn't -need- to lower the price 'cause people are going to buy these games regardless. That probably explains their sales. It's lucky for me that I don't care for most of Nintendo's games though, so lack of sales normally don't bother me. I play more third party games on Nintendo systems than Nintendo games, so I look for sales for those games.

I was thinking of getting a $20 Eshop card, and this sale now seems like a good time to get it.

@ericthecheese Well NL's review is an 8 so they seem to like it. I'd only get it though if people are actually releasing QR codes for their creations. If nobody is playing it, then there's little reason for me to get it.

No, I don't have the game. Hopefully someone here will give you more info about it.

I'm definitely getting Steel Empire this week. I may also get Journey to Kyoto and/or AiRace speed.
Still no sign of Lionel City Builder...

You guys are hard to please. There's some nice stuff here on sale. You not wanting them doesn't mean 'this sale sucks!' Other people, like me, may want them.

Freelance commented on Feature: The Full Story Behind Star Fox 2, Nin...:

Despite what the article said, about how SF was never intended to be solely a linear scrolling game, Star Fox is IMO the best game in the entire series. They should've stuck to that idea but obviously they didn't, with very mixed results.

I never liked SF 2 much. I played it and thought it was kinda dull.

Freelance commented on Review: 3D Game Collection (3DS eShop):

@Kiyata_Hamasaki Hi, since you have the game can you answer a question for me? Does the game let you save midway, such as Parcheesi/Ludo? I want to get the game specifically for that. I have another game collection on the PSP/Vita, with some of the same games from here, but sadly there's some bug in Parcheesi where if you save and load the game back later, all the rules you've selected gets reverted to the default rules and messes up the game. Been looking for another game collection with Parcheesi since.

Freelance commented on Steel Empire Blasts Into Europe on 17th Decemb...:

Doesn't seem like any one of you are SHMUP fans, with all those 'I won't buy this game til it's really really cheap,' and 'It's not worth the asking price' comments. Only non-fans would say something like that. I just paid $34.99 for DariusBurst on the Vita and it's awesome. Steel Empire's visuals look really nice. Nintendo's handhelds barely have any SHMUPs compared to Sony's handhelds, and this looks like a steal at $15.99 whatever, although I'm in Canada so it'd probably be bumped up to $17 or so. It's nice to see quality SHMUPs on a Nintendo handheld, and not bullet hell either. I really hate bullet hell SHMUPs.

I'm not getting anything.

The Mahjong game on sale now is really good, but there's an even better one that's just as cheap too if any of you're interested in getting it. It's called Best of Mahjong:

It`s by far the best solitaire Mahjong game I`ve played on the 3DS. Excellent stuff and incredibly cheap.

Not to be confused with Best of Board Games: Mahjong. It's a totally different game.

It`s not so good and the price is astronomical.

Man, I loved Bubsy (the game) and the music was awesome. I'm quite surprised that many of you hate the game. I had thought (at the time) that it was a popular platformer, but I guess I was wrong. I'd definitely get it on Steam when it comes out.

@NandN3ds While I do like some games on the Eshop (I have loads of them already), I find that the Vita has a far better indie lineup. There's lots more games on there that I'm interested in, which sadly the 3DS doesn't get at all, such as Aqua Kitty, Spelunky (pretty sure it's not on 3DS but I could be wrong), Flame Over, The Organ Trail, NekoBuro CatsBlock, etc.

@russellohh Wow, you really -are- rude. I never said that beloved games are stupid. Not every single popular game interests me (like CoD), but that doesn't mean I think they're 'LOL STUPID' like you seem to think. Like I said, there are some games are that are trashed constantly by people that I love, such as Dino D-Day and SimCity but I don't rag on those people that hate them. I think you're just assuming that every single game 'loved by millions' is going to appeal to EVERYONE. That is simply not true. Having no interest in a game doesn't mean I think it's awful or bad.. I never judge games until I play them, just to let you know, so until I play it, I'll just be indifferent over it. Again, why do you even care if someone doesn't share your love for something? Just leave it.

Freelance commented on Nintendo Download: 22nd October (North America):

You guys are pretty rude, you know. You call out someone for saying x games are garbage, but you probably don't like some games yourself. Maybe her choice of wording is bad, but she's perfectly entitled to like, and dislike, various games. Why would you care about someone who doesn't have the same tastes as yours? I like lots of games lots of people hate, and I hate games that lots of people like, but I don't badger people who like the games I dislike. Why can't you guys be more civil to each other?
