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.



KeeperBvK commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Wii U):

@theberrage With a scale of ten different scores to give, there are bound to be dozens of games getting the same score despite being somewhat better or worse than another. It's entirely impossible to reflect every difference in quality on an x/10 scale.



KeeperBvK commented on Review: Natsume Championship Wrestling (Wii U ...:

"Let's be honest here: wrestling is essentially one big television drama"

Um, no? Wrestling is essentially an age-old Olympic sport. It's sad most people nowadays associate it mostly with the WWE and such, and it doesn't help that you would open a review with such a statement.



KeeperBvK commented on Konami Demands That Hardcore Gaming 101 Presen...:

Konami is also the worst developer/publisher when it comes to their soundtracks on youtube. It's hard to find any videos with Castlevania music that aren't blocked. Konami's just digging its own grave deeper and deeper with every news covering the company.



KeeperBvK commented on Video: What Is Contained Within The Lush Euro-...:

@BLPs As AJWolfTill said: Only a single person said anything about watching the video for Lydia. And he didn't even say it was because of her looks or anything. He just said, he watched the video, because of her. Why can't his reason be that he likes her personality, her video style, her wit, her knowledge or whatever. The only person derailing these comments into "horny teenager county" is you.



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?"



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

@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.
