JeffreyG commented on Nintendo Of America Joins Snapchat And Perisco...:

I can live with Snapchat, their first posts seem pretty cool.
Periscope is still clearly in development and not availlable to many devices, so I'm not really a fan of it yet.
I specifically like what NoE is doing on Twitter and Facebook, their social media team has some pretty good humour. :)

JeffreyG commented on Review: Paper Mario (Wii U eShop / Nintendo 64):

Might pick it up when it comes to Europe, but I'm a bit sceptical as the Mario & Luigi games got VERY repetitive after a while in my opinion.
It's been a while since I played Dream Team Bros. though, so maybe I should give it another shot.

JeffreyG commented on New Super Mario Bros. Receives ESRB Rating For...:

Got some great memories with this one. Me and my friends and family spent a lot of time playing the minigames together when we went on a vacation together. :P
The platforming was pretty great too. I'd say I prefer NSMBU over this one, but it had some pretty cool levels.

JeffreyG commented on Nintendo Download: 14th May (Europe):

While Codename Steam looks like a lot of fun, I just don't have the time and money to buy and play it. There are so many games coming and so many that I still need to finish, I'll sadly need to skip a few this year...

JeffreyG commented on Poll: Did The Splatoon Global Testfire Hit Its...:

I absolutely loved what I played, just wished we could get a little more time.
I think I had one communication error, other than that no problems at all. The game played smoothly and loading and connection times were short. Can't wait for the full game to release. :)

JeffreyG commented on Nintendo Download: 19th March (Europe):

I've been pretty sceptical about Mario Party 10, but not playing a MP game in quite a long time kind of makes me want to buy it. I generally don't have many friends over though. :P

JeffreyG commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

Scores make people compare games in ways they're not meant to be compared by. A game with a score of 9 isn't always much better than one with an 8, but there are people who think so. So, I prefer a label system like Eurogamer and GameXplain, so that there still is a short way to tell how much you (as a reviewer) like a game, without people instantly comparing it to other games.

JeffreyG commented on Hands On: We Check Out The New Nintendo 3DS XL :

I got my Ambassador Edition today, and I'm really impressed. The menu and apps like Miiverse are a lot faster and smoother, the super stable 3D works really well and the start and select buttons are back to where they belong. C-stick feels weird at first, but it definitely makes Smash feel more... Smash. :P

Saying goodbye to my old 3DS is gonna be difficult, though. Bought it day one, and I have so many great memories of it. :)

JeffreyG commented on Nintendo Europe Shipping Ambassador Edition Ne...:

So, my payment service screwed up. Now I have to wait for them to send the money back to my bank account so I can give that money to someone else with a normal credit card. This is gonna be a long week waiting for it...

Nice to see Crunchyroll in Europe. People who haven't played EDGE yet should also definitely give it a shot, it's an amazing little game.

JeffreyG commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

Hmm, 8 is probably my favourite because of, well, everything except the items. 7 is a close second though, they had a perfect item balance and still some pretty good track designs and music. Looks pretty good too. Wii was a ton of fun, but really unbalanced and ugly. Every game past that hasn't aged all that well in my opinion, though I still have some nostalgia towards DS, as that was pretty much the first game I've ever played. :)

JeffreyG commented on Video: This Is What Watch Dogs Looks Like On W...:

Hmm, I believe I said something like "they probably just want to make the game run as good as possible on the Wii U, so that's why they delayed it." a few months ago. Looks like I was right after all. :)

Still interested in the game, will probably pick it up once I'm done with Smash and Captain Toad. Knowing Ubi, the price should be a bit lower by then. ;)

JeffreyG commented on Video: Early Sonic Boom: Rise Of Lyric Footage...:

I just don't understand why they chose a development studio who has never created a video game before. This is just Big Red Button trying random stuff out to see what works and what doesn't.

It's so sad, too. Action/adventure platformers like these have become pretty rare, so I've been really looking forward to this.

And sadly, even the biggest Sonic fans who were actually looking forward to this and who DID get a review copy don't seem to be happy with the game, either...

JeffreyG commented on SEGA Outlines Impressive Plans For Sonic Boom ...:

@Yorumi My original post was a bit vague, sorry for the confusion. :P There is definitely a market for both high quality and cheap figures, however I do think the quality for cheap toys is bigger, as there are most likely more children asking there parents for toys than collectors who want there figures to be really high quality. There's nothing wrong with any of the two, there are just different people with different desires.

JeffreyG commented on SEGA Outlines Impressive Plans For Sonic Boom ...:

@Yorumi Yes, but that's the difference. You collect high quality figures, these toys are intended for children whose parents don't want to spend that much money. Believe me, I'd love to spend more to get higher quality figures, but that's not the audience they're going for with this.
