Gorlokk commented on You Can't Alter The Chest Size Of Female Chara...:

The changes to Lin makes sense. Removing a customization option for the player character that you create and that you are role playing as is pretty dumb though. Not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but still awfully silly.



Gorlokk commented on Mother 3 Heading to the Wii U eShop in Japan o...:

Remember the reason Nintendo gave for why they released EarthBound on the virtual console? It was all the posts on the JP Mother 2 section on Miiverse. We just gotta do it again! It's disappointing that we're not getting it just like that, but Mother fans have been given a chance again. Hope rides on!



Gorlokk commented on Video: Check Out a Graphical Comparison for Th...:

While I was watching the direct, I honestly thought they were just showing the Wii/GC version and waiting to fade into a beautiful looking HD remake, but alas that wasn't the case. Honestly this looks like the absolute bare minimum effort was put forward to make it "HD." I might consider getting this the Wolf Link amiibo bundle because I do think that looks kind of nice and I never did beat this game, but overall it's very disappointing to say the least. Even when they showed the first screenshots for Wind Waker HD, I could tell there was at least some improvement in visuals. Here I can't unless there's a side-by-side comparison, and even then it's really not anything special.



Gorlokk commented on The Next Nintendo Direct is on 12th November:

Hype level at about 5/10... One one hand, it's been so long that I think it's fair to expect some neat surprises. On the other hand, how many times have I thought that only to be disappointed? Lol



Gorlokk commented on Site News: Nintendo Life Turns 10 Today:

I first made my account here on Nintendo Life in October 2012 I believe, but I had been visiting here for a little bit before that. Ever since I made my account, I think I've checked this website just about every day... You know, I don't know what it is exactly about this site in particular that really made me want to stay, but I'm awfully glad I did. I'll never forget about the great person I met on this website that sent me their old Japanese 3DS just for the cost of shipping. That was one of the nicest things anyone has ever done for me, and if it wasn't for Nintendo Life, it would have never happened.



Gorlokk commented on Target Reservation Cards Re-Affirm Fire Emblem...:

Wow. What a bunch of trash. NoA has been making terrible choice after terrible choice for a bit now. I don't think this game will be much like the older Fire Emblem games, so I'm going to do my part by not buying it.



Gorlokk commented on Genei Ibun Roku #FE Directors Reveal More Deta...:

Fire Emblem has already changed a fair bit in tone (they're still good, of course), so I'm fine with whatever this game brings to the table. There's no denying that its way different from what I expected of a "Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem" game, but it looks plenty interesting in its own ways.



Gorlokk commented on The Current Final Fantasy Director Would Like ...:

And honestly, to the people saying "NO NO NO OMG FINAL FANTASY IS SHOOOO BAAAAHD!!!" I don't really like 'modern' Final Fantasy either, but it's not like it would be a mainline game. It's not like the "Zelda" name isn't already tainted anyway, what with the CD-i games. The name "Zelda" isn't pure, so why not just give this crazy idea a go? Nintendo themselves have realized for years now that the Zelda "formula" has gotten stale anyway.



Gorlokk commented on The Current Final Fantasy Director Would Like ...:

That would be really cool in my opinion. I guess I can't say I would love whatever came out of such a collaboration, but it would still be incredibly interesting. An actual Zelda RPG would be really neat to see (I know there's a bit of a debate whether or not Zelda's an RPG, but I don't really think it is).



Gorlokk commented on Here's Some of the Changes Atlus Made to the W...:

The demo was actually too easy for me. I really don't know how I feel about this game anymore. A month ago I would have said that it's the only game coming out that's a guaranteed pre order for me, but after the demo, I really don't know... It's uh, really disappointing actually.



Gorlokk commented on Midora Developer Admits He Knew Kickstarter Fu...:

Why does a slightly upscaled Minish Cap need 60k anyway? Where does the money go? Programmers and artists? Well damn,they must be getting some pretty decent money in that case. What's wrong with just working on a game in your spare time? Is that not what they're doing even with the money?

I can't believe that nearly 90% of all gaming related Kickstarter projects have been such a let down. Even MN9 looks pretty lackluster. My only hope now is that Bloodstained is as good as the other CV games. I do have good faith in Yooka Laylee too, I'm just not as excited for that.



Gorlokk commented on Chris Prangar, Nintendo Treehouse Staffer Who ...:

You know, it sucks, but at the same time, the things he said about localisation struck me as a little strange, and also made me a little depressed. Him coming out and saying stuff like that really discourages the rallying of fans to show support for games to get localised, at least in my opinion. What if we never got Xenoblade Chronicles on Wii? The new Xenoblade is getting a bundle set wit the Wii U, so Nintendo obviously sees at as a system seller, but we might have never gotten it if fans didn't make it known that we wanted the first Xenoblade. But maybe I'm wrong, I dunno, just sharing my thoughts.



Gorlokk commented on Chris Pranger From Nintendo Treehouse Discusse...:

I just don't know. If ATLUS of all people have the money to localize tons of niche games, why can't NINTENDO localize niche games? There's no way Atlus has more money than Nintendo, and the fact that Atlus keeps on localizing means they must be making a decent chunk of change off the titles they bring over. Now, as for voice acting, yeah that makes sense why it would be costly, but what about games that don't have voice acting? Or at least not much? for the most part, all that needs to be done as far as I know is translate the text. Yeah if you're going for a retail release that's gonna cost extra, but if it's REALLY that big of a gamble, then at least give us digital only.
Oh well. Mother 3 has no voice acting and even has a full translation so there's no excuse to not bring that over at least on Virtual Console.



Gorlokk commented on Negative Reception For Devil's Third Is Due To...:

"...professional journalists who have played thousands of games previously simply aren't good enough to match Devil's Third"

Okay look, nothing against the fine people at Nintendo Life; I respect everyone here a lot, but from what I've personally seen over the last few years is that there are plenty of game journalists who aren't THAT good at games. If I recall correctly, most of the reviewers who weren't so impressed with The Wonderful 101 mentioned difficulty. I'm not trying to compare the quality of W101 with Devil's Third, nor am I disregarding legitimate flaws that you guys experienced with your preview. All I'm saying though is that there are definitely game journalists out there that aren't that good at games lol...
