KeeperBvK commented on Nintendo 64x64: Wetrix:

A great little puzzler, but how does this get a 9 when Tetrisphere got a 6? The latter has various modes and heaps of stages to play. There is content for weeks in there. Wetrix, though, is fine for an hour before it gets rather old. And you've already seen everything it offers within the first 20 minutes.

KeeperBvK commented on Review: Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Qu...:

@Action51 Thanks for the good laugh. The first Mario Galaxy doesn't even hold a candle to Mario Sunshine or the second Galaxy, so how would it be better than Super Mario 64? And that doesn't have to do anything with nostalgia goggles or whatever (since I prefer Galaxy 2 A LOT over the first one). I feel it's childish whenever anybody dismisses praise for older games merely by saying "oh, you're all just being nostalgic. Luckily, I am able to remain objectively here. Why can't anybody else?"

@Damo If that can be changed easily, how about finally bringing back the DSiWare entry for 4 Elements and also creating one for Magical Diary? I know this doesn't belong into these comments, but I've been asking for weeks now without any form of reply. I'm trying to help the site with this, after all.

KeeperBvK commented on Review: Castlevania: Circle of the Moon (Wii U...:

@ALEC_EIFFEL Nope, none of that makes the AI strong. It makes the enemies strong. AI is just the intelligence these enemies have...or rather not have. They just charge straight at you, which is no sign of strong intelligence.
However, I will say: How does that matter in such a game? Platformers and Castlevania games never had good AI and they surely don't need any. Bringing up this point in such a review seems completely arbitrary.

KeeperBvK commented on Nintendo 64x64: Jet Force Gemini:

Just like in the Tetrisphere bit you're saying it's got "addictive gameplay", yet you give it only a 7?
If a game is addictive, then how can it be less than great, hence an 8? I don't get it.

KeeperBvK commented on Nintendo 64x64: Tetrisphere:

"dull gameplay"? "Poor graphics"? "the worst version of Tetris"?
What is bizcuthammer on?

This is the best Tetris alongside Tetris Plus.

KeeperBvK commented on Nintendo 64x64: Tetrisphere:

"highly addictive", yet a 6/10? Oo
Seems pretty random.

I agree with the notion of it being addictive, so I'd easily give it an 8, if not more.

KeeperBvK commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd October (North America):

@ThomasBW84 What's up with you suddenly not doing separate game pages for titles released as both DSiWare and 3DS eshop games anymore? First 4 Elements, not that diary thing. It's confusing when other games do have separate entries for their releases here on NLife.

KeeperBvK commented on Nintendo 64x64: Shadows of the Empire:

"At the time, a decent addition to the Star Wars franchise"

At the time it was an exceptionally great addition. Maybe today it can be perceived as a decent addition. But not at the time.

Also, more variety? Variety was one of its strongest points! What Star Wars game has more variety than this one?

I'm with Fandabidozi. The game's great.
But still: Shout out for covering it in this special. And I gotta admit: That robot boss in the labyrinth could be a bit of a pain.

KeeperBvK commented on Nintendo 64x64: Pokémon Stadium:

Man, this was a major letdown. In the end I spent most of my time just with the minigames and the sped up emulation of the GB-Pokemon games. The main game modes felt just bland and boring after you had digested how pretty everything admittedly looked.

KeeperBvK commented on Donkey Kong Land:

I absolutely hated this game. Everything just kind of blurred together so half the time you couldn't see what was coming ahead. Maybe on the 3DS this will be better, but on GB it was pretty much unplayable.

KeeperBvK commented on Mega Video Game Fan Aaron "NintendoTwizer" Nor...:

@Nintendo_Ninja The price is WAY too high with most games coming without their original boxes and manuals. Also, there are bound to be hundreds of sports games among all of those games. Nobody's going to be paying this much money for it when even individual purchases of each and every game on offer here would cost you less in the end.

KeeperBvK commented on Capcom Won't Greenlight Sequels If A Game Does...:

So all we gotta do is buy less than 2 million copies of the next MH, RE and SF, to stop them from making ANY games from that point onwards? Now that is something I'd love to see.
"Oh, sorry, none of our franchises meets our criteria anymore. We'll just lay back and do nothing. Bye."

KeeperBvK commented on Nintendo Download: 9th October (Europe):

@Dazza thanks
But is it possible you mixed up the eshop and DSiWare releases of 4 Elements? Your text makes them seem like the exact same release, as do the links provided (to the review of the eshop version and to the game profile page or whatever you want to call that one ^^).

KeeperBvK commented on Nintendo 64x64: F-Zero X:

So much better than GX.

Sure, GX looks better and has the mission mode, but X just plays so infinitely better and isn't even half as broken as GX is.

KeeperBvK commented on Nintendo 64x64: Chameleon Twist:

@DarkCoolEdge Thank god for the variety. We can't always just keep talking about Zelda and Mario, now can we? Especially with these extremely short reviews. What would they be supposed to say about those big classics in 64 words? I'm glad they're broadening the focus to some overlooked (good) games like Chameleon Twist.

KeeperBvK commented on Hyperkin's RetroN 5 Console Allegedly Infringe...:

I am well aware of emulators not being illegal and I can imagine it being a lot of work. But that's not the point. Having to put work into anything certainly doesn't make it better. I would imagine planning and pulling off a bank heist would be quite a lot of work, too, but so what? And emulators for platforms like the NES, SNES, Mega Drive or whatnot might not be illegal per se, but it is obvious that they are used for illegal actions well over 99% of the time. These guys behind those emulators are well aware of that as well or if not, then they should be.
How about another analogy? I create a powerful weapon (the emulator) that can also be used as a can opener (the legal options it provides, yet nearly nobody uses). I only construct the weapon, but I don't manufacture any ammunition (the roms) for it, despite this ammunition being really easy to come by for anyone. Does that mean I can wash my hands in innocence? Certainly not.

KeeperBvK commented on Review: Mega Man 7 (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo):

MM 7 was a decent game, but I couldn't stand its difficulty. Or lack thereof. I rushed through the entire game on my first day with it without encountering any problems, just for the final boss to be frustratingly hard. And when I had used all of my E tanks in said battle, I basically had to reply the last four stages again to collect more tanks. That's horrid design.
Still, it's overall a decent game, just a weak Mega Man.

KeeperBvK commented on Nintendo Download: 18th September (Europe):

@Einherjar I know that you didn't mention the 3DS, which is exactly why I did. The recent weeks of MM downloads in Europe were only on 3DS. There was no continuity in WiiU MM releases at all, so there is hardly a "break" as you called it. It's all just come to its foreseeable end.

KeeperBvK commented on Review: Bit Boy!! ARCADE (3DS eShop):

Wow, I can't understand the discussion that's been had here. To me the review is absolutely spot-on. Phil has mentioned exactly all of the issues I had with the game as well and yet he's managed to not entirely bash the game but mention all of its positive aspects as well. I, too, found the presentation and premise of the game to be charming at least, but this can't make up for all of its gameplay flaws.

KeeperBvK commented on Review: Glory of Generals (3DS eShop):

@OorWullie Oh, rest assured that I am. I just can't stand how the English language is sometimes horribly deteriorating in the comment section here at NL. And I'm not even not native-speaking.
Don't get me wrong: Everybody does typos, but stuff like "we'll thought-out" is not a typo, as one would never hit get even close to that key when typing "well". It's laziness in combination with an utter lack of understanding the most simple grammmatic rules. Just like the "should of" that's spreading like wildfire.

KeeperBvK commented on Review: Phonics Fun with Biff, Chip & Kipper: ...:

@NicolaHayden As an editor you should be aware of the difference between "its" and "it's". You did not only confuse it in your comment in the comments section but also in the review.
You even used both of them the exact wrong way. Not just one of them.
If people in the comments can't use proper English, that's one thing, but PLEASE take care of your articles, Nintendolife...
