KeeperBvK commented on Gallery: Feast Your Eyes On FullBlast, An Old ...:

sigh
"A vertically-scrolling shooter with 3D visuals and a heavy metal soundtrack, FullBlast calls to mind the likes of Raiden, Battle Garegga and DoDonPachi."

Really? None of those games has 3D visuals and from the trailer this game looks nothing like either of those three games. It reminds me more of Nanostray for example.
Whenever a shmup appears, people will compare it to just ANY other game of the same genre. Why is that? People would never compare a 2D platformer to Mario, Sonic and Bonk at the same time, but here we are, comparing a badly-looking shmup to Raiden, Battle Garegga and DoDonPachi. Also neither of these three games is even comparable to any of the other two, let alone to this "Fullblast" thing.

KeeperBvK commented on Review: DOOORS (3DS eShop):

@Supermak99 And 100 Floors rips off dozens of earlier Room Escape games that had already been around since the early 2000s.
It's a whole genre. I'd hardly say any of those rip off another game more so than others do.

KeeperBvK commented on Review: Sky Kid (Wii U eShop / NES):

@Sean_Aaron Because they allow us to immediately see how different opinions can be? Yeah, definitely "crap"...
These different scores merely summarize and represent the existence of differing opinions. What's crap about that, exactly?

KeeperBvK commented on Review: Titan Attacks (3DS eShop):

"It's a tougher challenge, and arguably trumps even the mighty Space Invaders. Ooh, controversial…"

Would somebody really call that controversial? Would somebody honestly argue that the original Space Invaders'd be better than Galaga? I think it's a pretty universally accepted view to call Galaga a major improvement over SI in every single way.

KeeperBvK commented on Mappy-Land:

So, this is a sequel to Mappy? I hope it's better than Namco's other old "Land"-sequel, being the horrible Pac-Land.

KeeperBvK commented on Review: Mega Man Battle Network 2 (Wii U eShop...:

@abbyhitter Yeah, if you're only going to play through the story in as little time as possible. But half the fun is exploring all the areas, finding power-ups, doing side-quests and collecting chips. Doing that in all the games can EASILY amount to a couple hundreds of hours.

KeeperBvK commented on Review: Tri-Strip (Wii U eShop):

@Teslain Should they only be reviewing the great games? Yeah, that would make a lot of sense. How about only giving out 10s, 9s, 8s and 7s? That will help their readers decide on what games to get.
It's mandatory to review as many games as possible and ESPECIALLY the games we don't know yet whether they're good or not. Asking for anything else is just stupid. Yeah, let's only review Zelda games.

KeeperBvK commented on Where Is Nintendo's Place In The Games Industry?:

@Artwark The point is to strengthen the Wii U's lineup. If GBA games were also on 3DS, the Wii U wouldn't benefit as much from them. It's not that hard to understand. Especially when it's been said for months on end now.
There is nothing to "fix" here. It's a business decision. Simple.

KeeperBvK commented on Mobile Hit Badland Is Coming To The Wii U eShop:

It IS a lot more than that.
You don't just dodge obstacles and die once you do. You traverse diverse levels in what is more of a puzzle game in an atmospheric world. All levels are carefully built rather than randomized and you need to use the various items in the right way to survive.
I personally love it. It's a great game t opass a minute, but I also enden up playing it for hours laying awake in bed at night.

KeeperBvK commented on Not Everyone is Thrilled That Metroid Prime Tr...:

@Kitchener Why the hard feelings? This is not a case of people buying something with the intention of selling it for more. It's just a game that happened to become more expensive, so it sucks for any regular owner of the game to see its price plummeting.
This is not like those people preordering dozens of Majora's Mask New 3DS subsequently selling their preorders for a profit.

KeeperBvK commented on Video: This Guy Loves Nintendo Way More Than Y...:

"over 500 of the best Nintendo home console games, more than 50 boxed console variations, over 120 controllers, 300 magazines, 400 figures and 20 posters."

So...this is considered overly impressive nowadays? Or it warrants a ridiculous assumption such as "This Guy Loves Nintendo Way More Than You Do"?
Wow...there are dozens of better and bigger Nintendo collections. I myself used to own around 250 different N64 games alone, not counting games for other systems.
Next time you post a video of a neat, though not exceptional collection, please spare us the insulting and overblown assumptions.

KeeperBvK commented on Review: Kemonomix+ (3DS eShop):

@Captain_Gonru Yeah, I also immediately thought of Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicle: My Life as a King. Problem is, this review doesn't sound like Kemonomix+ would be doing anything differently or worse than Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicle: My Life as a King, but just the reviewer apparently doesn't like this kind of game. Seems pretty biased.
Anybody here who played both games and would be wiling to share his thoughts?

KeeperBvK commented on Game of the Year: Nintendo Life's Staff Awards...:

"It was a particularly strong year [for the 3DS]"
Seriously? Aside from its horrible launch year, this was easily its second-worst year so far. Even if you DID like this year, you can't seriously state that it would have been "a particularly strong year" for the platform.

KeeperBvK commented on Review: Mighty Final Fight (Wii U eShop / NES):

I think an 8 is way too generous. It's decent for an NES beat'em up (there are hardly any at all), but otherwise it's pretty low-tier, if you will. With all the alternatives on 3DS and Wii U I'd give this a 5. It's really monotonous (even by the genre's standards) and the XP system doesn't add a lot.
