Freelance commented on Feature: Handheld LCD Gaming Past And Present:

The only LCD games I've ever gotten were the G&Ws. My parents got me DKII when I sick while on vacation, to cheer me up. I also had Octopus and several others.

I find it sad that the people of today dismiss LCD games are 'dated,' 'primitive' and 'who wants to play those?' I much prefer the classic versions of G&W games to the updated modern ones found in the G&W Gallery collections. People should give these classic games the respect they deserve.

Freelance commented on Rumour: Fresh Sources Suggest Shovel Knight Is...:

I'd rather see characters that actually has some meaningful gaming history behind them in Smash (like Sonic), not recent third party characters that has 1 or 2 games in their lineup. Shovel Knight, etc, shouldn't be in Smash.

Freelance commented on Review: I Love my Cats (3DS eShop):

Well one good thing I could say about this game is that you can get JUST cats. Nintendogs + Cats requires you to have at least one dog in order to make money to buy food/items (since cats can't), so if you love cats but for some unfathomable reason hate dogs, you're out of luck getting JUST cats in that game.

THIS game lets you have JUST cats, which is a plus for cat lovers-only fans.

Freelance commented on Review: Japanese Rail Sim 3D Journey in Suburb...:

I never knew NL reviewed this. It doesn't look like anyone on NL digs simulation games, because these scores are quite bad. If you think sims are awful, you should play Euro Truck Simulator 2. You're going to change your mind real quick.

Freelance commented on Review: I am an Air Traffic Controller Airport...:

I wish we could EDIT our posts. If it was me reviewing, I'd give it a 7 or an 8. I really hate giving out random numbers to reviews, though, but unique games like this can be really fun if you're interested in the subject. The dialog between air control and the pilot in this series sounds really authentic to me, and watching those planes fly around, especially while they're landing or taking of at night, is really cool. Anyone who loves planes and/or wanting to be an ATC should get it.

I was going to add that these type of games aren't going to appeal to everyone (such as yourself). Most simulation games only appear on PCs, and that's where most of the fans of these games are. I love simulation games like SimCity and Transport Giant Gold.

Freelance commented on Nintendo Download: 6th August (North America):

I'm not getting anything, but all simulation fans should buy A-Train, especially with that permanent discount.

I also don't know why Rail Sim Kyoto is $20 (probably even more in Canada) but the previous game (Suburbs) is only $10.

Darnit you can't edit posts. My mistake. Best of Mahjong and Best of Solitaire are from cosmigo. They're only $2.99 and $3.99 Canadian.Wow, I just checked Best of Board Games: Mahjong and it's $12.99 Canadian. BLARGH. Really, I have both Best of... games and they're the best Mahjong and Solitaire games available on the Eshop. You don't need any other game!

Best of Mahjong and Best of Solitaire (both from Game On) are much better Mahjong and Solitaire games in fact, THE best games), and they're also a lot cheaper too. No need to get these games that cost $9.99!!

Freelance commented on Review: I Love My Dogs (3DS eShop):

Why would you need another pet sim when Nintendogs + Cats is available? I haven't seen anything better than that game. The dogs (and cats) actually move realistically (and not like a robot; ie stiff like other games I've seen) and the models are better.

@rjejr I dunno why Godzilla's Revenge gets such a bad rep. It's a really good kid's movie IMO. I've liked it loads when I was a kid, and it has a soft spot for me now. There's nothing 'wrong' about it. It's like people don't want kids watching Gojira movies or something.

Freelance commented on Nintendo Download: 16th July (North America):

No love for Airport?? It's a rather unique series and if you love planes you should give it a try. It seems most people don't like playing anything 'out of the box.' Being more open minded, I have played many good games that other people refuse to try.

I don't have the funds to get it right now, but I will eventually.

Freelance commented on ​Miiverse is Getting a Massive Redesign this...:

What? I can't edit my own posts? Wow. Anyway, why is AA the only drawing app not to have Miiverse capability? Pokemon AA does, the Wii U AA app probably does, and now this Sketchpad whatever-it-is has it too >> 3DS AA is the only drawing app I have >>

Freelance commented on Nintendo Download: 25th June (North America):

Getting the dog and cow themes!! Just to let you guys know, the themes are 99 cents each, or 2.99 for the bundle.
Depending on the discount though, I may have enough to get SoR and a theme instead. If not, I'll just get the two themes.

@Kaihaku I still have the cartridge too, but no system I'm pretty sure Argonaut owns part (or all) of the SFX chip, and this copyright issue is preventing the game from being released digitally. Either that or the composer (who made one of the best soundtracks ever made BTW) has something to do with it.

Freelance commented on Review: Densha de Go! 64 (Nintendo 64):

Although there's many half-assed simulation games for every profession out there, there's some that are actually very good, and are great games to relax with after a stressful day. Euro Truck Simulator 2 for example is one of the best games I've ever played. It's incredibly relaxing to drive a truck (with cargo) hundreds of miles across the European country while listening to your own music. Even people who have never played a sim before have ended up getting addicted to the demo and end up buying it. I highly recommend it.

Freelance commented on Super Mario Bros. Inducted Into the World Vide...:

@Einherjar It has to do with the fact all the other games that won are all classic titles that helped shape the industry. WoW is the odd one out. Sure, WoW is the best selling MMO ever, but there are loads of other, older, games too that helped jumpstart a genre that would've been better choices; games like Ultima for instance, or SimCity. MMOs are a rather 'new' genre compared to SHMUPs, RPGs, city builders, etc.

Freelance commented on Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories Heading to Wii...:

Is this going to be the first HM game on PC?? Interesting. I don't have Wii U, or any mobile device. The Lost Valley was a great game. It's sad so many people refuse to give it a try just because Marvelous didn't make it. A good game is a good game, regardless of who makes it. All this 'it's not a true game in the series so it MUST be awful' talk is a really silly way of thinking IMO.

Then again, I'm pretty tired of the 'real' HM games now. They're growing rather stale. My last HM game was A Tale of Two Towns and I don't plan on getting any future HM game. Natsume's game is a refreshing take on the series, IMO. I wish lots of the features in the game was in the main games. These should have been in the main series from the start :/

Freelance commented on Video: GameChap Shows Us Five Ways to Get Bann...:

What if you're playing, and then suddenly a parent yells at you to take out the garbage? You could get banned for taking out the garbage then, and it's not your fault that you were idling. People CAN get interrupted with whatever they're doing, so being banned for idling makes no sense at all. The person should just be kicked to the lobby, not a outright ban. That's not really fair.

Freelance commented on Nintendo Download: 28th May (North America):

The price for themes keeps going up. They used to be $1.99 for themed ones. Then they went up recently to $2.49 (cause of exchange rate), and now I've seen three that are $2.52; both Shantae themes and the new MSF theme. Add in 13% tax and man, these themes are getting to be really expensive.

If SEGA makes an 3D After Burner II or 3D Out Run theme though, I'll get them. The two themes that came out recently were $1.99 so the price didn't go up for those, and I'm more inclined to get themes at that price. The Eevee theme is cute, but I don't think I'm willing to pay $2.81 for it.
