Imerion commented on Review: Pure Chess (Wii U eShop):

Im very curious about the tutorials included. How extensive are they? Is it only to explain the rules are do they go into various strategies, openings, etc?

Imerion commented on Aqua Moto Racing Utopia Splashing Onto The Wii...:

Awesome news this! I actually mailed Zordix about a Wii U version of this after playing and enjoying the 3DS version, and now they actually have one on the way. Maybe I should mail more developers about Wii U versions of games Id like to see. :)

Imerion commented on Review: Aqua Moto Racing 3D (3DS eShop):

I see. Very interesting information, though I'm sad it would be so complicated. But hopefully this game will sell well, or you get some investors for another game. :)
Also, thanks for the answers. One thing I really like about this page is that sometimes developers stop by and answer questions. :)

Imerion commented on Review: Aqua Moto Racing 3D (3DS eShop):

Just bought this, even though the score here was a bit low. Used to play games from the Saturn/Playstation era, so I don't usually have problems with some slowdown. No new game ever gets even close to how choppy some of those old games were. :) And if it is a problem, playing with 3D off seems to help. Still, an update with some optimizations to help these problems would be nice.
That, or that Wii U-version mentioned a few days ago. That would be too good to be true! ;)

Imerion commented on Aqua Moto Racing 3D Developer Keen to Bring it...:

I'd really love to see this on Wii U! Will download the 3DS version any day now, since I've really been craving for something Wave Race-like for a while after playing Wii Sports Resort. The fact that it has Download Play makes me want it even more. A very awesome addition. I'll think I'll get my 3DS now and download it.

Anyway, nice to hear them want to support Nintendo platforms. As said, Aqua Moto Racing for Wii U, with splitscreen support, would be a blast at gaming nights! :)

FAST: Racing League for Wii U stands far at the top on my wanted list for eshop. I really hope that is what is on the way! Then again, I guess any type of racing game (or any game for that matter) from Shin'en will be fantastic! Can't wait to hear more!

Imerion commented on Activision Comes Out in Support of Circle Pad ...:

For most FPS games, I don't feel this is necessary. I really liked aiming with the stylus. As long as developers won't remove or stop using stylus aiming in games in favor for a second analog stick, I guess this could be useful though. In other types of action games perhaps.

Imerion commented on Review: FAST - Racing League (WiiWare):

Played this all day! I'd give it a 10/10 no doubt. The only WiiWare games I can think of that I have enjoyed more are World of Goo and Cave Story. (And it might change, depending on how fun FAST is in multiplayer.)
But then again, I really like futuristic racers. As many have mentioned, certainly the best in the genre available for Wii apart from F-Zero GX.
I really hope it sells well, so Shin'en will consider more WiiWare games. :)
Then again, will be really interesting to see what they can do on 3DS too.

Imerion commented on Rumour: Sonic Generations and Time Crisis Head...:

It's really strange if a Sonic game would not be released on Wii considering how well the other Sonic-games have sold there. Sonic Unleashed sold more than twice as well on Wii as on any other platform according to VGChartz. A 3DS and/or Wii version would really make sense.

Imerion commented on You Won't Get a Nintendo Console with a Button...:

Good to hear! I have nothing against motion controls or touch screens, but they really need to be complemented with buttons in most cases or the games will suffer from it. Nothing I have played on touch-screen tablets or mobile phones have managed to work nearly as good as real buttons. Both in unison, like the DS, can be fantastic though.

Imerion commented on Interviews: High Voltage Software - Conduit 2:

HVS really did a great job with this one. Still having loads of fun, especially when playing splitscreen with friends.
Having played it even more now, I keep getting impressed by all the awesome tech they manage to throw around. Perhaps it's because I'm a programmer myself, but I can really see the craftsmanship shine through here and there. It does so much stuff many players will probably not even see unless they look for it.
And as I've said before: it's a real run-n-gun with colorful graphics. You don't see them often these days among all the "realistic and gray" shooters that seem so popular.
Here's hoping for a third game, be it for Wii, 3DS or Nintendo's next console!

Imerion commented on Review: Conduit 2 (Wii):

Can't agree with this review. To me, this game is at least 8/10. It might be because of it's style though. I really like the run-n-gun design. To me, the fact that AI charges instead of hides really makes it so much more interesting than the standard tactical "spot/hit the pixel" type FPS. I want big guns and even bigger enemies which doesn't try to flee from me all the time, and that is what I get here! ;)

Also, Invasion mode is great fun and character/loadout customization makes it even more fun to play with friends, be it co-op or vs.

True, it might not be another GoldenEye Wii, but considering how fantastic that game was I wasn't really expecting that. A very solid and complete shooter it is nevertheless, though the style might not be to everyone's taste.

Imerion commented on Europe, Your Q2 Release Line-Up is Waiting:

Some nice stuff there! Conduit 2 is already pre-ordered and Zelda, Dead or Alive and Dragon Quest VI will be soon. That Thor game for Wii looks quite nice as well and I'm keeping my hope up for Green Lantern.
Also nice to see FAST: Racing League getting a release date. Now for that trailer...

Imerion commented on Sorry Everyone, There Was No Monster Hunter 3D...:

Oh, figures. :( No Monster Hunter 3D. Not even a new Ace Attorney.
The only new game was that drab looking Dragons Dogma. Seriously, Capcom games are usually very well designed, but that game just screams generic and soul-less.
Monster Hunter 3DS will probably come eventually though. I'm still hoping.

Imerion commented on Review: Asphalt 3D (3DS):

I agree with most points in this review, but I would rank it slightly higher. It's still fun doing crazy drifts and stunning jumps, even though Ridge Racer 3D no doubt is a much better game doing the same things. Graphics looks quite nice too and would have been great had it not been for the dropping frame rate.

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

Nice, this review made me a bit more interested in the game. I was planning to skip it, but now I might actually get it.
There's one thing that would make it definite: single-card multiplayer.
Does anyone know if the game can be played with multiple players using a single game?

Imerion commented on DSiWare Users Going Back to BASIC with PetitCo...:

Cool! Interesting idea. I had something similar on my Palm many years ago and made a few programs with it just becuase I could. ;)

Also, nice to hear more people are still using/have used Qbasic! :) I used it when I learned programming many years ago. Good stuff! For those interested, I can suggest Freebasic : http://www.freebasic.net/
Its a modern basic compiler based on Qbasic. It pretty much has the same syntax.

Imerion commented on 3DS Audio Features Aren't Exactly Out of Tune:

@3dbrains: Strange, I can still play Excite Truck with a custom mp3 soundtrack even though I have that update. The photo channel won't play any of my music though... :(

Hope it will support some more formats, like .ogg, which most of my music is in.

Imerion commented on Live Out Your Glory Days on January 17th for 2...:

Whoa! Only 200 points? Insta-buy for sure!
Looks great and it was some time ago I played a good tower defence game. :)
No word about multiplayer support though? Would have been awesome, but perhaps that is something to do for a second game if this is successfull.

Imerion commented on Iwata Asks About 3D Gaming on the Famicom Disk...:

Awesome stuff! I really have to start reading these more closely.

@Wolfenstein83:
Very interesting question. It doesn't seem impossible. Would be an interesting reveal on this years E3 : The release of a 3D Display for the Wii. :) They should be a lot less expensive now so it might be possible to sell as an add-on.

Imerion commented on WiiWare Super Meat Boy Gets Canned:

Sad for those who were looking forward to it. Not interested myself, but more popular Wiiware games wouldn't hurt to have around. Still can't believe they couldn't fit such a simple game into a Wiiware release, especially considering what other developers have managed...

Imerion commented on Heavy Fire: Special Operations Targeting Europ...:

I'm interested and will probably get it for that prize. Might not be fantastic, but I like the genre and want to see what it looks like.
I wonder if they have improved stuff in it since the US release? Might be slightly better now due to tweaking, which has happened with other games.

Imerion commented on Heavy Fire: Black Arms Invades with New Trailer:

I haven't played the first, so I cannot comment on it's gameplay. But I think this trailer is very impressive graphics-wise. I know it's not comparable, this being a rail-shooter and all, but some of these scenes look better than COD: Black Ops. At least from a technical perspective. And this is a Wiiware game. If they can improve on the problems the first one seems to have had, this might actually be really cool. I'm having my hopes up for the moment.

Perhaps, if this works well, Teyon might make a "real" FPS next time. With this engine it could be fantastic, especially if they make it a retail release and can really crank upp all those textures and models a bit. :)

Imerion commented on Features: Don't Touch my Samus: Metroid's Cont...:

Finally an article about Other M that I completely agree with!
The fact that Samus has feelings doesn't make her less awesome and bad, just more believable as a human character. And as for consistency, I decided to play Metroid Fusion just before getting Other M and because of that I found those accusations very strange. The two games are clearly very similar story-wise. And as you said, there were no negative reactions about Fusion...

I haven't read all comments here, too many. But @LittleIrves; you have a very interesting point which I hadn't thought about before. Regardless what people think of the game it has obviously evoked quite a lot of emotions, which is something few games can boost about...

Imerion commented on First Thor Wii Screenshot Takes the Bull by th...:

While the screen doesn't look very good, at least a good developer is behind the game. Red Fly Studios (http://redflygames.com/press/we-can-finally-reveal-thor) did a quite good job with Ghostbusters and Force Unleashed II. Both of them were solid games that felt well put-together. The only thing they don't seem to excel on is graphics, completely ignoring all the advanced effects the Wii GPU can do...
But I really hope this game will, like Ghostbusters, get a two player splitscreen co-op mode. That would make me buy it unless the reviews are really horrid.

Imerion commented on Get Strategic on DSiWare with Glory Days - Tac...:

As I posten on the game's page, this looks great! But what I really hope for to set it apart from other tower defence games is a co-op mode. :) Two (or more) players work together to build a defence, each having his/her own resources. Would be really fun and might work considering how well Pop Island did multiplayer, with single-cart mode and all.

Imerion

#48

Imerion commented on Glory Days - Tactical Defense:

Wow! This sounds and looks fantastic! And I wouldn't say no to another tower defence game if it's well done. One thing though: Multiplayer! Please let this support some sort of co-op or versus play. Perhaps two or more players could help construct the defence together. That would be awesome!

Imerion commented on Gothic Action Heads to WiiWare in Ark of Sinners:

Wow, this was a surprise! A new 2D Castlevania-esque game. I really hope this will be good. Title screen looks awesome, but the rest of the screens look so-so. But it will probably look better as development progresses, not to mention it will be nicer in motion.
