Kitsune_Rei commented on Pocket Monsters Invade Arcades In Bandai Namco...:

This actually looks pretty meh. It looks like a gambling game? You're just trying to clear the board? It just looks so simple. So does the minigame at the end where you're just flinging Pokeballs at things wildly to try to get the Pokemon in the back.
It seems like the sort of game you'd play at Chuck e Cheese or something.

Kitsune_Rei commented on Poll: Is Online Co-Op a Major Miss in Hyrule W...:

Thank goodness for local co-op. I'm getting really tired of games that ONLY have online multiplayer. Because what two friends want to sit together on the couch to play? >.> If it didn't have local play, we wouldn't be getting the game.

Kitsune_Rei commented on Feature: Ten Wii U and 3DS eShop Games That Ar...:

I tried the Harmoknight demo and thought it was too hard, or I just wasn't getting it, so I didn't consider it for purchase.
I liked the earlier Denpa Men game a lot, and I heard they just keep getting better- such a great light RPG.

Kitsune_Rei commented on Talking Point: Just How Similar Are Tomodachi ...:

I enjoy Tomodachi Life more than Animal Crossing in a way because its just the core messing with stuff and relationships without the daily labor sort of stuff Animal Crossing had. Its just a fun quirky game that doesn't try to make anything feel like work. You poke around and watch things develop, and are rewarded with unexpected quirky interactions. Its like Animal Crossing in that you can't completely judge it from a day of play.
Also my friend got the demo and while he liked it, he said it was SUPER limited. So don't judge the game too much by its limitation.

Kitsune_Rei commented on Guide: How To Import Miis Into Tomodachi Life ...:

I love the options they give you for transferring in people! They keep it always adjustable too which is awesome. Feel like you don't like a voice you made? Go change it!
I'm also happy they had distributed a bunch of gold-pants Miis over wifi a while back, so I do have a good number of em. Whee legit Reggie and Iwata~! My priority has been RL friends, but I don't have that many so am also adding fictional people that amuse me. Like Snape.

Kitsune_Rei commented on Review: The Denpa Men 3: The Rise of Digitoll ...:

I'll probably get it eventually, but I'm way behind. I'm pretty close but havn't quite beat the first one, and wanted to do that first (although its been a while since I played, since other games are distracting me). I bought the second on sale so then that's waiting for me. If I hadn't already bought the second, maybe I'd consider just skipping to the third. I'm glad that series has gotten appreciation, I think it deserves it. The catching your own party adds a really fun element to the genre. I'm sure the later games add some more meat than the first one did, so it is probably best for new players to skip to 2 or 3. I assume they still let you import your party from the demo, which I thought was really cool.

Kitsune_Rei commented on Review: Grinsia (3DS eShop):

I was going to pass on this because it looked too generic for me. I like RPGs, but I'm looking for a GOOD game, not something to fill a nostalgia-hole. I can play the ACTUAL classics if I really want to, and there are PLENTY of clones. I'm still into the pixel art, but I won't get a game if its pretty shallow otherwise. As someone else said, RPGs take a lot of time since a main mechanic is still grinding. If I just want parties and grinding there's even stuff like Knights of Pen and Paper. I'm enjoying Bravely Default so I don't mind milking that for all its worth.

I'm a sucker for pigtails, so I don't think she looks that bad. It could have been a lot, lot worse.
I'm actually glad she DIDN'T have the obvious Australian voice. Its maybe a little raspy, but I don't think its very high-pitched.
So, I assume the "Dumb as a Stick" jokes have been made? I kinda get annoyed when they say a character is really smart, but make them the butt of constant ignorant jokes based on them saying stuff that sounds dumb all the time.

Kitsune_Rei commented on Puzzle & Dragons Z:

I played it on Android, and I enjoy it. I look forward to them dropping some of the tactics just to make you put money into the game. I've been playing for free though. And the puzzling is different since you grab a piece and you can keep using it to shift piece around until the timer runs out. Its still pretty hard though.

Kitsune_Rei commented on Review: Smash Cat Heroes (3DS eShop):

I was curious when I heard the "dynasty warriors" analogy. Definitely going on my wishlist, but not sure if I'll bite since its pretty shallow. I may wait until I've gotten through some other games.

Kitsune_Rei commented on Tappingo Gets a 30% Discount in Early May:

I picked it up not long after it came out, and I feel like I've already gotten my money's worth at regular price and have no regrets. I havn't beat it, but there is a lot to do. I do pretty much "get" the game now so solving puzzles generally is more of a relaxing rather than challenging experience, but its a neat puzzle concept and its just fun to see the colors roll out into a picture.
Definitely recommended if you like picture puzzle games.

Kitsune_Rei commented on Review: Pokémon Link: Battle! (3DS eShop):

Looks like I'll be picking this one up! Glad to hear its a good game.
Its a shame no online multiplayer, but I guess local is better than nothing. It seems like the main game is deep enough that's what you'd mostly be playing anyway, since I doubt the online mode would unlock anything.
I'm guessing this is pretty much a game that is the equivalent of a full cartridge game, so the price isn't bad.

Still crossing my fingers Pokemon Puzzle League makes a comeback...

Kitsune_Rei commented on Club Nintendo in North America to Remove Post-...:

I mostly don't like the shortening of the survey period- sometimes it takes me more than a month to really put time into a new game, or I want to finish the game I was playing before first. I guess I need to wait to register it until I'm really playing it, but you get those bonus coins for certain new games only if you do it right away.

Kitsune_Rei commented on Review: Weapon Shop De Omasse (3DS eShop):

I was waiting to see what you guys said, I'm glad you rated it highly. It still seems like a game that's more about the experience than really the gameplay, but it sounds quirky and fun. I'll probably pick it up.

Kitsune_Rei commented on Review: Tappingo (3DS eShop):

I picked it up and seems great for only $3. Its a nice thoughtful diversion. I feel like I got the basic concept pretty easily, but several puzzles in I have to think so I havn't got all the concepts yet.The game is relaxing in the way of Sudoku or other thoughtful pattern games.
My only drawback is the game seems to let you cheat- I've finished a puzzle before with pieces in the wrong place, but it fit the required amount of squares for each piece. Also with the last piece, if you can get them all to satisfy their requirements for a second, then it will finish even if the piece ends up going over the number of squares its supposed to immediately after.
I'm also picking up Piccross DS because of this review :)

Kitsune_Rei commented on Pokémon Battle Trozei Is Match Three Puzzle A...:

While I'm a pretty avid puzzle gamer, the other Trozei just didn't grab me and I didn't keep it very long. At least they've tried to add something to it, but will it really be enough? Also other Pokemon side games (like Pinball and Rumble Blast) are ridiculously mean about trying to collect the Pokemon- a lot of it is random luck. I hope this doesn't hold up to that tradition as well.
I'll probably give this a shot, but I still really pine for Pokemon Puzzle League ;_; Now there's a favorite.

Kitsune_Rei commented on Level-5 Trademarks Yo-kai Watch in the US:

I personally like youkai folklore so I'm interested in this. I'm also surprised they didn't re-name it something more like "Monster Watch." Keeping it Yo-kai keeps it as more of a niche title. But maybe it'll be mostly bought by fans either way.

Kitsune_Rei commented on Bravely Default:

The demo had me hooked once and for all, though I already had it on preorder. Can't wait for this to hit. it looks like the best of classic jrpg gaming but with a fresher face.
The collector edition seems to have some really lovely bonuses so I think it seems worth it. I'm rather glad NA didn't get the statue, because frankly it doesn't look very good.

Kitsune_Rei commented on Kickstarter Research Highlights Low Delivery R...:

Kickstarter is, like many things, about being smart about where you throw your money, and not just being blinded by a great idea. Does the person have a track record? How far is it along? How much have they really searched into what their actual costs, needs, and time will be? You can kinda tell the ones that are more of a wing and a prayer versus those that the game it already half done and they have an established team and workload.
Its just like ordering something from a shady internet site versus an established one.
I have no regrets for any projects I backed, and I think they have all reached fruition or are making regular progress (granted I usually also back comics or board games or other things more than video games). You just have to go into it expecting delays. I don't hold it against them when a game dev has delays on final approvals of their games. It happens even to the regular companies.
But since video games are a much more costly and less tangible thing, I think they're more susceptible to catastrophic delays or falling apart altogether. Its just in the past you just never hear about those games.

Kitsune_Rei commented on Matters of Import: Drop Matching And Dragon Ev...:

I for one am excited for this and will be really disappointed if it doesn't reach the US. I would think we have a good shot since we have the Android/iOS version? The 3DS version looks like they basically took the gameplay I liked and made the graphics more beautiful and dropped in a smoother RPG element to it to enhance longer play sessions.

Also everyone seems to glance at the colored gem board and say "Oh another Bejeweled clone". While there is gem-matching, this game and strategy are NOTHING like Bejeweled. It took me a while to get used to. You actually hold a gem and use it to push other gems around, and then once you let go everything is set in place. You can ponder the board as long as you want, but once you lift and gem and start shifting others around, you have a limited time before the layout is set. It makes a lot of food for thought to clear as much of the board as you can in one go.

Kitsune_Rei commented on Review: SteamWorld Dig (3DS eShop):

I'd been hearing good things (and I saw my roommate playing it) so I grabbed this on sale :D Its actually cheaper than on Steam after their PC release! I think I'd prefer the 3DS interface anyway and the portability. Everyone should grab it and have no regrets! I think its one of my best holiday sale game purchases.

Kitsune_Rei commented on Review: SteamWorld: Tower Defense (DSiWare):

I like tower defense, and would like this to be good, but I just don't have the patience for something really hard. I'm not asking for a cakewalk, but I'm over games that are frustratingly hard. I'll pick a more well-rounded game.

Kitsune_Rei commented on Review: Orion's Odyssey (DSiWare):

Its a really charming little game, I wasn't a tangrams person but this game convinced me otherwise :) I love several of the characters! I don't know about anyone else, but I found several of them to be challenging- I certainly wasn't blowing through every one in one try.

Kitsune_Rei commented on Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter Releases D...:

I havn't been able to access the eShop at all for a number of days now, I think it was before Xmas, and when I tried again today it told me my region has been blocked due to how busy it was. I can wait for the Bank, I'm honestly not surprised this happened, I'm just disappointed I can't get anything else since there are some things on sale and a game I wanted to get. Also Pokemon X is telling me I have an update, but I can't do anything about it.
