JustinH commented on Review: Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures (Wii U e...:

I adore this game. This review, however, is fair.

But I will say the review is (partly) wrong in saying this is only for those who played the game back when looking for a nostalgia trip. This game is so out there, so full of charm and good ideas and horrible execution, that some people might be interested in it as a curiosity. After all, the game hasn't aged poorly — it was always borderline unplayable.



JustinH commented on Review: Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash (Wii U):

I think 5/10 is too harsh for a game that does what it sets out to do very well. In no way is it acceptable that this shipped without online friends matching and a little, tiny bit more content would be welcome, but I'm fine with Nintendo not padding this out with filler no one really wants. It's great to jump in for some online tennis or have some friends over.

With that said, again, it really needs online friend matching and shouldn't have launched at full price.



JustinH commented on Review: Girls Like Robots (Wii U eShop):

Anyone on the fence should at least watch the trailer on the eShop because it's pretty entertaining. It might not make you buy the game but it at least got a laugh out of me!

This might be something I pick up either on sale or when things die down a bit around the holidays. Looks fun.



JustinH commented on Poll: Did The Nintendo Direct Comeback Fire on...:

The Direct itself was fine but it was really 3DS heavy. Some of the stuff like DQ7 and 8 and Pokemon VC were cool enough, but Cloud in Smash and Twilight Princess HD are just gross, totally pandering. The whole Direct was a lot of Nintendo going after low-hanging fruit and little actual new games. The rest of the industry is doing this, I don't need it from Nintendo!



JustinH commented on Beenox Won't Be Working on Spider-Man Games An...:

Amazing Spider-Man 2 had its issues for sure but there was a really fun game under all that. Web-slinging through Manhattan was great. Wish these guys got a bigger budget and a little more time in the oven to bake a Spider-Man game and we'd be sitting pretty.



JustinH commented on Review: Human Resource Machine (Wii U eShop):

Really fun game! Solid review, I'd maybe rate it a touch higher. If you've got an amateur interest in programming or love logic puzzles you should definitely give it a look. It's not long but if you want to do all the optional stuff, that would take some time unless you're a total math/puzzle whiz.



JustinH commented on Poll: The Tricky Issue of Retail Games as Down...:

I would buy this for sure if it were on disc but I'm much less interested without the physical media. I could download it just to try but at 15 GB I'd have to clean out just about my entire Wii U to play it. This is the wrong game to start the whole online-only thing with.



JustinH commented on Review: Donkey Kong 64 (Wii U eShop / Nintendo...:

Wow, some people are dead set on defending this game. Guys, give it another shot, removed from your nostalgia, and you'll see a 7/10 isn't harsh, it might even be too generous. This game is a long, slow and at times painful chore.



JustinH commented on Nintendo Download: 12th March (North America):

I voted for F-Zero GP Legend because I already got it, but I'll pick up Outrun 3D and double dip on Mighty Switch Force for 3DS tomorrow. The HD version on Wii U is excellent and very highly recommended!



JustinH commented on Feature: The Making of Wetrix and Its Route to...:

I adored this game and I really wish it had found its way to the Virtual Console. It's one of the rare N64 games that I think would have aged very well (but I'll admit I haven't played it in forever as I never did buy myself a copy. PIcked one up as a gift for family though.)



JustinH commented on Year in Development: Nyamyam:

I really liked the game but they delayed the Wii U release by half a year and priced it at a huge premium over iOS and are disappointed with the sales? Yet another case of awful management sinking a great game, and one that has a natural home on the platform.

Put it on sale and I suspect a lot of people might give it a shot. It's still really expensive for a very short game.



JustinH commented on Review: A World of Keflings (Wii U eShop):

This port is super sloppy and I can't believe the reviewer didn't mention this and gave the game 8/10. You can't post Miiverse screenshots half the time, characters don't appear during some cutscenes, the framerate is truly abysmal... there's just so many basic issues.

The game itself is fun but pretty shallow. That part of the review is spot on.



JustinH commented on Review: Meme Run (Wii U eShop):

The fact anyone felt the need to make this and so many people are buying this and posting about it on Miiverse is so very depressing.

I defended Ninja Pig insofar as their feud with Rcmadiax went and I regret that now.



JustinH commented on Interview: Curve Studios on the Unique Charm o...:

I played a little of this on Steam before it was announced for Wii U. I stopped playing it then. I'm not sure whether I want to get back to it on Steam or double dip. It's a fun little puzzle platformer, and the presentation of the story is really neat. The comparison to Portal is strange, but apt.
