GlasS commented on Nintendo Announces 2D Super Mario Title for 3DS:

Brand new platformer, with time trial mode with online leaderboards and the option to play as Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad, and whoever else like in Super Mario 2, along with a level editor with online share, and Retro Mode, which gives you the option to 8-bitify (lol) the game once you have completed it once.

The raving lunatic has spoken.

It would make a great game though.



GlasS commented on Game of the Year: You Decide!:

This is a little off topic, but has anyone realized that Pokemon games are actually quite horrible? I'm not saying it's 'dumb' or 'for little kids', but the story is bad, the gameplay scheme is flawed, the graphics are so-so, etc. The main game concept is 'catching them all', but the Pokemon are really deteriorating, destroying the entire franchise. I've noticed that the Pokemon have stopped having faces, which really gets rid of the emotional quaity that a game about capturing and caring for strange creatures kinda sorta NEEDS. But Idunno.



GlasS commented on Japanese 3DS Sales Hit New High in Christmas Week:

Not surprised. I don't get the anti- Microsoft and Sony thing going on though... they're only companies trying to make money, and yes, they HAVE come out with lots of original things, but with Nintendo spanning back into the 1800's they pretty much beat everyone to the draw.



GlasS commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap ( ...:

In order of worst to best, in my opinion
Mario Kart: Super Circuit
WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgames
Wario Land 4
Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
F-Zero: Maximum Velocity
Kirby and The Amazing Mirror
Mario vs. Donkey Kong
Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap
Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island
Metroid Fusion

It's a weird list...



GlasS commented on Review: Cake Ninja (DSiWare):

Cypronia1- but for five dollars? Without any variety, such as new blades, or unlockables, or different modes, or achievements, or basically any incentive to play the game, as Fruit Ninja has?



GlasS commented on Out Now: Nintendo 3DS Ambassador GBA Games:

The original Yoshi is like something out of an Art Style game

I just got a 3ds via Ebay and I'd give the system an 8/10, because, although the graphics, sound, and memory all are better than ever, the buttons are sometimes stiff, and the general location of most buttons makes it increasingly awkward to play some games. And the circle pad is a little bad. Just a little. Still definitely worth the price, though, saying as there will probably be maybe 2 more retail DSi games before they just... STOP.



GlasS commented on Guide: Mario Kart 7 Top Tips:

There is a tiny touch of melee in these games, these tips can help.

Take advantage of the opponents' weight. If they are a very light opponent who's trying to nudge in front of you, nudge back. Avoid Bowser, DK, and Wario, though. Also, if you are gaining or using the slipstream on a lighter opponent, the straighter on you hit them, the more ridiculously they will bounce out of the way.

These are only helpful tips on some occasions, using them constantly will earn you a mob chasing you with red shells or worse.



GlasS commented on Review: Double Bloob (DSiWare):

Meh. I was hopin' this wouldn't suck. Why is that 'Shmups with bad graphics get bad ratings, and 'Shmups with bad graphics get good ratings?



GlasS commented on Double Bloob:

"Draw circles on the touch screen?"


I actually want this game to be good. But 'drawing circles' has LITERALLY never worked.



GlasS commented on Come On! Heroes:

Absolutely. I like the self-satiring in the story. For 200 points, I'm genuinely interested. I'm not sure if I should get this or Castle Conquerors: Heroes. Guess I'll wait for that review.



GlasS commented on Reggie: "Mobile Games Would Go Against Our Bel...:

I'm not sure what the fuss is.
Mobile games are small and worth their price.
Retail games are large and worth their price.
Nintendo could easily make small games that are worth their price.
If Nintendo started in the direction of mobile gaming, their company would become about half of what it already is. They wouldn't need all of their programmers or developers, etc.
The fact that Nintendo chooses to build something that has more profits is their decision.
But eventually the bubble is going to burst. The Nintendo company IS going to suffer massive budget problems. The sooner they switch, the smaller the problems.
They would be best off with a mix. The smaller/rejected games could go into the list of mediocre mobile games.
This is simply the truth.



GlasS commented on 3DS Heading for Bigger First Year Sales Than DS:

The 3ds isn't a handheld. It's more like a small computer. lol
Nice to know the 3ds (version 1.0, powered by Windows Vista, of course) is getting back on its feet, much like the company itself.
I look forward to feeling the warmth as the 3ds overheats, the buzz-whine-whir of the gyroscope, and the customizable screen savers kicking in when I purchase mine.
*The computer flotsam I spouted, while I partially suspect is true, is a load of moog.



GlasS commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (Wii):

That's a lot of chins dude @ Zeeroid

I was just thinking, Nintendo time and time again proves that it can make a game RIDICULOUSLY good, but it does kind of take timid steps into 'the future' and doesn't really redefine anything.

My proof?

This could have been a different game. It was Zelda.

Two or three mario games coming out in the Christmas season.

Basically, they don't like to take risks, and that's understandable for a massive company like Nintendo, especially after having financial issues with the 3DS. They always put TONS of effort into their four staple platformers- Mario, Sonic, Zelda, Kirby- and other games that people have already heard of, but it's been a while since they put Mario effort into a NEW concept. While it's understandable that Nintendo is surging out Mario's and Zelda's and Sonic's, etc., while they recover financially, I would personally be dissapointed if, in the next five years that the 3ds and Wii-U are all the rage, Nintendo doesn't get a 10/10 in some brand new, completely original game.

Jus' sayin'.



GlasS commented on Review: Gem Smashers (3DS):

A cute/creepy Sonic The Hedehog, a tiny pink radish, and a star-shaped baby chicken, all on one piece of cover art?

I'm actually interested now.



GlasS commented on Pokémon Rumble Blast:

This tickles my mind a little bit, but I do agree that a level-up system of some sort would make the game a little less mindless.



GlasS commented on Gaia's Moon:

I'm interested, but I still don't know what it is... great marketing!



GlasS commented on Review: Furry Legends (DSiWare):

The game, aside from the graphics, was lazy. The animation was slow, very little effort was put into debugging the game, the oh-so-glamorous physics mentioned in the description were- again- lazy. I'd give it a 5. It was a mediocre game that nagged at me a LOT, but it was still fun enough to come back to.



GlasS commented on GO Series: 10 Second Run:

A nice and fun platform, but the physics seem overly simplistic and you fall at the speed of light. I personally can't pass Lvl. 40. A '7' is right in the ball park here.
