Genesaur commented on Review: Splatoon (Wii U):

I did it. I finally made it back to the top of page one. Monster Hunter 4 and wedding plans set me back over ten pages for weeks, but I'm no longer behind on Nintendo Life news.

Now, to endlessly play Splatoon and fall behind again...

Genesaur commented on Humble Bundle Issues Official Statement About ...:

Jeez, with all the whining over availability we can't control, you guys are either extremely charitable, or kinda greedy. Sounds to me like the latter, like you're just aching to get a bunch of games for only a couple of pounds, or Euros, or whatever.

Pffffffffffft. I ain't even Slightly Mad. Glad most everyone (except for "people" like Quorthon) see this statement for what it is, after all the promises. I got no maybes in those older interviews.

@kyuubikid213 There they are. The quotes that I was thinking of, right there for all to see.

To go on an aside about Quorthon, I can only assume named himself after the legendary man behind Bathory, which, given his obsessive, unrelentingly hateful behaviour, I consider an insult to the real Quorthon; I will say, though, that his comments do remind me of the kind of nonsense spouted by your typical elitist Black Metal fan, so maybe it's a more appropriate name for him, but I still hate seeing it.

Genesaur commented on Review: Nihilumbra (Wii U eShop):

@ricklongo Dude, that's what I mean, though. I'd love it if he gave at least slightly more reason than pooping on a number.

To be fair, he accused it of being "me-too," as if you couldn't apply that to any platformer/puzzler. And while as an overall package it's a wonderful experience, there isn't anything super unique about the game's mechanics, so I get where he's coming from. But still, the excessive focus on the number is exactly what bothers me. People define even those differently, too, so conversations (and especially arguments) about them get confusing. Like, the people who act like an 8/10 is a mediocre score. Those effin' guys.

Genesaur commented on Review: Nihilumbra (Wii U eShop):

@ekreig lol, true dat. Classic Game Room is one of my favourite video reviewers, who simply gives his overall thoughts and feelings about a game, with plenty of cheesy jokes and no numbers out of ten to be found.

Genesaur commented on Review: Nihilumbra (Wii U eShop):

@KeeperBvK See, it's because of people like you that reviewers should stop pinning numbers on the articles, and just let the overview/conclusion give the final word.

I think this game is fun, especially as a two-player experience. It's much harder to manage some of the time constraints without a second player. My fiancé really got into it, and I honestly enjoy our arguments about what tactic will work best for whatever obstacle. I get that Void Mode is essentially a more difficult replay of the same game, but it genuinely feels like a continuation to me, as it doesn't just ramp up difficulty but legitimately changes how you perceive each area.

The only complaint I would have - that is, if it weren't so easy to ignore and fitting to the tone and aesthetic - is regarding the somewhat cliché philosophical jargon about the meaning of existence, or whatever. That being so minor, I'd say this is a pretty good game.

A wonder how this could have played even decently on mobile.

Genesaur commented on Splatoon Global Testfire Suffers Major Problem...:

Wow, that's incredible. Sure, all of you guys interpret this as a bad thing, but I was ecstatic to see that it was up after the initial hour was over. I thought I'd missed it, 'cause my lady was taking forever with our errands (and I was constantly bugging her to hurry up, lest we miss the demo).

When I was able to select a character and stuff, I just thought they'd extended it, or that I'm just stupid about time zones and such. Either way, I got to play, and I was super happy about that.

I love this guy. I love his dedication to his work. I love Anatomy of Super Metroid. I love this quote, "Web content is ephemeral - it can be deleted or lost or whatever, but once it's in print, it's locked down forever."
