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

The guys over at 8-4 have a podcast and they sometimes discuss localization and barely scratch the surface of what goes into it as it's mostly a discussion about Japanese games. These are the guys that localized Fire Emblem Awakening and just listening to some of their experiences is eye-opening to what goes on behind the scenes and how much work is truly involved.



GuySloth commented on Review: Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Kn...:

The demo is available on the NA eShop and so far it's the classic Etrian Odyssey experience. EO4 is still my favorite but if you like this style of game then Untold 1 & 2 will be right up your alley. If you never liked the series on the DS to begin with I'm not sure if the updated experience starting with 4 will win you over...



GuySloth commented on Players Reached Splatoon's Level Cap So Fast T...:

I've played Splatoon almost every day since launch and reached level 20 and A+99 in ranked in a reasonable amount of time. I've completed the single player, found every sunken scroll, and completed all the amiibo challenges. From what I'm reading in some of the responses some people would say that there's little reason for me to come back to the game since I have achieved "everything" but I don't find that to be true. I have made every item I own 3 sockets and I'm currently working on perfect rolls for the gear that has an affinity for specific sub abilities. I also play regularly with a forum of highly skilled players and the best thing about PvP is that no game plays out the same.



GuySloth commented on Code Name S.T.E.A.M. Fails to Chart in Week of...:

Before the patch this game was just ok but post patch it's great and that's not necessarily reflected in the review scores floating out there. I would like to try the game with the FE Amiibo but they're insanely hard to find.



GuySloth commented on Parent Trap: Code Name S.T.E.A.M. Makes Chess ...:

The patch did wonders for the game, I wish some of the reviews out there would revisit Code Name S.T.E.A.M. post patch. I would like to try all the FE Amiibo characters but they're extremely hard to find in my area.



GuySloth commented on Wii U Stretch Goal Seemingly Teased for Bloods...:

After reading the comments section of the article written about how the developers of Monochroma dropped support for many platforms it's clear that not many people understand how Kickstarter works. As Kingrat says, pledges can be dropped towards the end of a campaign and Kickstarter projects actually take that scenario into consideration.



GuySloth commented on Monochroma For Wii U Scrapped Due To Technical...:

Broken Age, Pillars of Eternity, Wasteland 2, Shovel Knight, FTL: Faster Than Light, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, The Banner Saga, and Divinity: Original Sin are games that were successful due to Kickstarter off the top of my head. Mighty No. 9, Torment: Tides of Numenera, & Yooka-Laylee are on the way. Yes I am skeptical of many Kickstarted projects but there are always risks associated with such projects so I'm surprised when people get caught by surprise when something goes awry. The Yogscast fiasco comes to mind.



GuySloth commented on Capcom's Ryozo Tsujimoto Feels Monster Hunter ...:

I will play it on the 3DS but I feel longer play sessions (comfort of controller, big screen), typing, and using the mic are better suited for consoles. MH4U having online changes none of these things for me. You keep hearing how the West is big on console gaming and Capcom is trying to expand MH's popularity here so...



GuySloth commented on Nintendo Adds a Bunch of Virtual Console Title...:

During the Mega Man sale I was out of town with enough eShop credit for both Mega Man 6 & 7. However, I wasn't going to make it back home in time before the sale ended. I browsed the website to find a limited selection of VC titles available for purchase through Nintendo's website so I called them to see what options were available to me. In the end they told me to have somebody access my Wii U to purchase it for me - not exactly the best or even a reasonable solution. Glad to see they're making progress.



GuySloth commented on Lucky New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Gamers Jump ...:

If you're a mega fan and not lucky enough to receive an e-mail than those that are listing the new 3DS are allowing you to get a product that you had no chance of getting before. These people were selected and they gave their money to Nintendo to purchase the system. What they do with it afterwards is up to them and there's clearly a demand for these systems. I am in NA so this situation doesn't apply to me but screaming out for these people to be crucified is ridiculous.
