JonWahlgren commented on Review: Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash (3DS):
@rjejr Unfortunately not – Umihara Kawase is a gaming blind spot of mine, but I'm aware of the series. I suspect I'll pick it up sometime! You a fan?
JonWahlgren commented on Review: Year Walk (Wii U eShop):
@RantingThespian Everything is here.

I'm both very excited and terribly afraid.
JonWahlgren commented on Hands On: We Check Out The New Nintendo 3DS XL :
@k8sMum I don't wear glasses so I didn't run into that problem. Nobody else at the demo event seemed to either as far as I could tell, but we can do some digging.
JonWahlgren commented on First Impressions: We're Really Feeling It Wit...:
@C-Olimar I've updated that graf now to clarify that it was in fact American fans who were sent in a tizzy.
@Chubblings Looks good in 3D, with some expected loss of detail from the original Wii game. Frame rate seemed a stable 30fps in the demo running around Gauer Plains, can't say for sure how it holds up in other parts.
JonWahlgren commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Wii U):
JonWahlgren commented on Hands On: Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter:
@LuigiTheGreenFire You can have up to 8 controllers in use with Smash — whatever combo of controllers you have will work. This adapter just adds combatibility with GCN controllers, and doesn't restrict use of any other inputs.
@OMC79 The adapter is sold separately for $20 or so. No need to buy a bundle!
@Dipper723 WaveBird is a perfectly good controller for non-tourney Smash play. Plus, no wires, and might be ideal for people who need more range than a corded solution would offer.
JonWahlgren commented on Nintendo 64x64: F-Zero X:
GX is superior.

@AVahne MH4 also disables Miiverse posting, so, they already do!

@NbaJunkie oh man, Deus Ex is so good though.

@Jahir There was one (laugh), but I don't speak Japanese so I don't know what the (laugh) was about!

@Action51 Thanks for the kind words! I'm really interested to sit down with this game just to see what it's all about. I think the Zelda series could use a good shake-up from time to time, even if it is just a side-step like this one.
@AdmiralThrawn We aim to please.
@Action51 After it's release in Japan. In the full interview, the two mention the Japanese Miiverse response to the game's release.
@Action51 These are from our interview conducted in August. The full shebang will go live in a few hours.

Have we learned nothing from Young Justice: Legacy and Monster High: 13 Wishes?
@DRL Don't give anyone ideas!

I think I'm going to have to have a rap battle with Tom.
JonWahlgren commented on Review: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (Wii U):
@Popyman Really? I'm surprised because I've heard the complete opposite from people. Anecdotally, not one of my Spidey-loving friends have enjoyed the movie.
It's got a 54% rating on Rotten Tomatoes too. BAD's review sums up my feelings about the film pretty perfectly.
I'm glad you enjoyed the movie, and wish I could share your enthusiasm for it!
JonWahlgren commented on Review: F-Zero Maximum Velocity (Wii U eShop /...:
@Kid_A * high five *
Maximum Velocity is fantastic – because it demands focus and practice to get anywhere at all it isn't always the most approachable game. But man, if you stick with it then MV becomes immensely rewarding and fun.
"Put up or shut up" game design at its 2001 finest.
JonWahlgren commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:
Oh man I totally forgot about Advance Wars! I've been chipping away at the sneaky tutorial for a few weeks and hope to get to the campaign proper this weekend.

I can't get enough of these screenshots. They're so great.
JonWahlgren commented on Preview: Mario Kart 8:
ermagerd this looks so gorgeous. The reflections off Metal Mario are stunning.
JonWahlgren commented on Review: Advance Wars (Wii U eShop):
I had a hankering for some AW lately so I picked up the first DS title, but now that this one is out (and is the one I originally wanted) the DS game will just have to wait.
Please please let this mean a new Wars will make it out some day — Advance or Battalion, I don't care.

Killing someone with the Klobb must be what it feels like for a Goomba to take out Mario.

@siconlol Hah, no worries, I know what you mean. We don't pretend to be the only reviewers in town and encourage our readers to check out other sites and chat with community members who have played the game to get as complete a picture as possible.
(I still enjoy Other M.)

@Damo As a video game hoarder I don't think I would've ever thrown it away intentionally, but since we moved a lot I have no idea where it may have ended up. If I do then it's locked in a storage facility on the other side of the country.
I know for truthfacts that I still have my R-Zone in said storage facility. Next time I'm back east I'll dig it up. Pretty sure it's in the same box as my Game.com.
I...think I had one of these. It looks awfully familiar to a present I got from my grandma, who bought it off the Home Shopping Network way back when. If it's the same machine, I remember it being a pile of hot trash. Definitely no R-Zone.

I would happily try Minecraft on Wii U. Seems like the GamePad could work really well with building.

Well that was unexpected. Sign me up.
JonWahlgren commented on Review: RUSH (Wii U eShop):
Since we are clearly never getting another ChuChu Rocket this one will have to do. Fortunately it's a pretty great little gem.

@JustinH @AdanVC @zeldafoursword @ejamer @daveh30 @paranoide Sorry folks, NoA has confirmed that this is US-only.
JonWahlgren commented on Review: Super Mario 3D World (Wii U):
Totally spot-on. This is a phenomenal game.
JonWahlgren commented on Review: KORG M01D (3DS eShop):
@NekoGeo It's actually pretty straightforward and you don't have to dig too deep to get a lot out of it. The manual explains how to use everything but playing around is the best way to learn.
@HaNks You're thinking of DS-10, which is available as a retail release. This, M01D, is only available on the eShop in the west.
@Yosher It's a high-quality emulation of a well-known synthesizer, and it's also the digital version of a retail release.
