HexNash commented on Review: 1001 Spikes (3DS eShop):

The game completely freezes the system on both the Wii U and 3DS versions when entering the first temple (five levels in) as Bit Trip Runner, causing you to have to manually power down the systems and preventing further progress. How that got past playtesting is beyond me. Otherwise, the game is excellent.



HexNash commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Patch The Controversial ...:

This is nowhere near as game-changing as snaking. The only place it makes a big difference is Time Trials, and 99.99% of the people complaining wouldn't even be able to get close to the non-hopping records to begin with. It only works after boosts, not on the entire track like snaking, and literally consists of hopping a couple times afterwards, which doesn't exactly take an MLG player to do. Plus, it is part of the game physics, and probably not something that is feasible to change without causing all sorts of other changes.



HexNash commented on Review: Balloon Fight (Wii U eShop / NES):

Every one of the negative points in this article could be launched at any classic arcade game ever. Should Donkey Kong or Galaga be rated 5/10 for being repetitive? A 5/10 is a ridiculously low score for Balloon Fight, one of the best early NES titles. What a terrible review.



HexNash commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. Melee (GameCube):

As someone who loves all three games, has won multiple local Brawl and Melee tournaments (playing as Snake and Marth, respectively), and has an encyclopedic knowledge of Nintendo (been collecting for over 15 years), I happen to like the original N64 SSB the most. None of the characters are too powerful or too weak than any other, which is in part due to the huge knockback of all attacks, but that puts the SMASH in Super Smash Bros. Also, I feel that the character picks themselves are more balanced, with no series getting too much representation (some may cite the Mario series as an exception, but seriously, how can you not not include all three of Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi?). Melee's characters picks feel sort of "off". I would have replaced Ice Climbers with Pit or had both in, Dr. Mario with Wario, and removed Pichu, Falco, and Roy and included Meta Knight, R.O.B., and Diddy. IMO, Brawl had the characters spot on, though I think including Snake and Sonic changed the soul of the game quite a bit. All three are 10/10 in gameplay, but I play the first the most and think it captures the "Nintendo All-Star" theme the best.



HexNash commented on Review: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (WiiWare):

I have to disagree with most of the comments and the review score here. This game is basically for anyone who never played through the DS version. Giving it a 5/10 just because it is a port is absurd, as the game is just as entertaining as the 8/10-rated DS one. What you people are doing here is turning newcomers to the series off from a great experience, just because you've already played it on another system and expected to be spoiled. Give me a break.



HexNash commented on USA VC Update: StarTropics II:

Wow, some people just can't be pleased. Zoda's Revenge is a GREAT game. I really don't understand how it is always compared negatively to the first one. If you liked Startropics, don't put this off. Honestly, its better than a bunch of the five-star games already on this site.
