I come from the younger end of the spectrum. (I wasn't old enough to enjoy games until well into the Gamecube's lifetime.) I personally find that I have a harder time enjoying a lot of older games; they aren't as approachable for me. For example, I've tried to start the original Legend of Zelda several times, but never lasted long enough to really get into the game. I have all of the Ambassador games, and haven't really enjoyed a lot of them (which isn't to say that I haven't tried).



Ickaser commented on Review: Mega Man 2 (3DS eShop / NES):

On a spur of the moment, I just downloaded this. I've never played any Mega Man games before, so this is a dive for me. After playing for 20 minutes or so, I can see why so many people love the game.



Ickaser commented on Review: Ikachan (3DS eShop):

I want to love this, but if it's still so short, I don't think it'd be quite worth my $5. (Gosh darn it. I was so excited...)



Ickaser commented on Review: Paper Mario: Sticker Star (3DS):

I've always been less sure I'd want this one. The partners were a huge part of the game for me in the other ones, and while I think I might enjoy this one, I don't think it's worth $40 to me.



Ickaser commented on Sakurai: Smash Bros. to 'Change Direction a Li...:

I predict some effective use of both screens. I have no idea where they would take that, though. I'm sure the action would take place on the 3D screen/TV, leaving a touch screen free. But it would have to be something that would not favor one size of screen over another. (I'm sure it'd be easier to tap a button quickly on the 3DS touch screen than the UMote one, for example.) So, in short, who knows where they'll take it, but I predict some sort of touch screen use.



Ickaser commented on Spanish Pokémon Team Disgraced:

You know, guys, I don't think NL reported on this event because it was newsworthy in and of itself. The results, however, have quite a bearing on gaming- I'd say that a team not winning the European Pokémon Championship because of an outside event makes that event quite newsworthy, regardless of what happened.



Ickaser commented on Review: Stratego: Next Edition (DSiWare):

Great buy. Granted, I don't think the Hard difficulty is too bad if you know what you're doing. BUT, that was on the original mode. On Duel (where you only get ten pieces 'stead of 40), Medium was difficult.



Ickaser commented on First Impressions: Mario Kart (3DS):

Dang Nintendo and their money-sucking skills. (I was so tempted to use a Luigi's Mansion Reference there. But I spared you.) Yet another thing to save up for. I wish lawn mowing wasn't my only income, being under 16 and all.



Ickaser commented on Miyamoto: "3DS Could Be a Convenient Wii U Con...:

Well, if that were more possible, I would whole-heartedly say HECK YES. BUT, there are more shoulder buttons and an extra Circle Pad on the U-Mote, and an extra screen that would just seem wasted. However, I think that with at least some games, perhaps ones that don't need as many buttons, that could be very possible and would make me want it more. Given, of course, that compatible games are very common.



Ickaser commented on Review: Super Monkey Ball 3D (3DS):

Two things: First, this is an incredibly long comment thread. Second, I'm not entirely happy with the level designs. There aren't many levels that are genuinely fun to play and a lot of the course design came out pretty bland in my opinion. BUT, it's still a very fun game.
