Knuckles commented on Acclaimed 3DS Shooter Steel Empire Finally Cle...:

I had the pleasure of reviewing this 30 dollar game at launch, and I can definitely say that if its cheaper than the equivalent of 30 pounds or euros, say around 15 or 20, it is worth the price. However, just like NL's review comment for 9/10 games, "if you only like racing games and this is an rpg", if you don't like retro side scrolling SHMUP`s then this probably isn't for you.



Knuckles commented on Site News: Nintendo Life Turns 10 Today:

Congrats NintendoLife on the excellent ten years. I started lurking back in 2010 when I was looking for a DSiWare review and joined in 2011.

@James Can we borrow you from NoE for a few minutes for you to say some kind words about your time here?



Knuckles commented on Review: Toki Tori 3D (3DS eShop):

@ThomasBW84 I've been wanting the GBC version for a long time anyway, and I wasn't going to buy it today. I was however booting up the eShop for the 3D version because I was sold on a 2 dollar Toki Tori, I just was waiting for NL's review first to be sure the game wasn't littered with bugs and the coding was held together by duct tape. Not saying the developers aren't trustworthy, but no reason to waste money on a poor game.



Knuckles commented on Review: Toki Tori 3D (3DS eShop):

@ThomasBW84 I am confused as to what is the difference between the GBC version and this.

Are all of the levels in the GBC version offered in the 3D version, along with many options not included in the GBC version?

I'm sold on the game regardless, I just want to know if I would be wasting money by buying the GBC version as well.



Knuckles commented on Feature: How Mario Kart Brought Two Soul Mates...:

@Zelda_Rocks He says that he didn't even know that feature existed, and quite honestly, I believe him. Nintendo didn't have this feature in Mario Kart Wii, and up until he ran into her again, he wasn't interested in Mario Kart 8. Its within reason to say that he wasn't very interested in Online, and as thus, didn't know that feature existed.



Knuckles commented on Nintendo Is Making Female Characters Cover Up ...:

"...she now wears a top and shorts under her bikini."
I might be misreading this, but doesn't under her bikini mean that the Bikini would be over her clothes and exposed, not hidden under the top and shorts?

Edit: My mistake, I didn't see that the bikini top was actually over her top.



Knuckles commented on Nintendo Download: 17th September (Europe):

@Dazza I am not the biggest Pokemon fan, but I am almost certain that Mewtwo was #150, and not #151. If I recall correctly, Mew's clone had the irony of being ahead of him in the Kanto Dex, which had 151 known Pokemon.



Knuckles commented on Video: Watch Sonic Repeatedly Rescue Tails In ...:

@joep1984 Actually, in Japan, Dr. Eggman has always been Dr. Eggman. Dr. Robotnik came out of the Western Releases, where names, stories and backstories in instruction manuals were commonly changed to better suit cultures. Starting at Sonic Adventure I believe, the good old Doctor's name to Doctor Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik worldwide, but I'm not entirely sure if SA1 was the game to do this.



Knuckles commented on Review: Star Fox Command (Wii U eShop / DS):

I'd personally give this game a 7/10. It was the first Star Fox I'd played, so I had no idea what I was missing out on in terms of controls, but the gameplay was solid on a DS.

Fair warning though, later in the game, the game goes on rails all of a sudden and it can be surprising.



Knuckles commented on How Fire Emblem amiibo Interact with Fates:

@Koopa-King Should they take the Mega Man, Pac-Man and eventual Ryu amiibos away as well?

Sonic might at least have some compatibility with his yearly releases, maybe Pac-Man and his next Ghostly adventure game.

Edit: Completely missed the speed joke.



Knuckles commented on Devil's Third:

Has this even been mentioned once at E3 so far? Day 2 is over and I don't think I heard the name Devil's Third once.



Knuckles commented on Metroid Prime: Federation Force Producer Expla...:

@Hachiko @DBPirate They could have easily gone the same route as Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.

In that game, you could have 4 player Co-Op, and everyone could be Snake. However, in game when looking at your partners, they all look like one of your MSF troops. You would always see yourself as Snake if you selected Snake, but on your screen, your partners aren't Snake, and on their screen, they are Snake and you aren't.

Same thing could have worked here.



Knuckles commented on Nintendo Download: 28th May (Europe):

@ThomasBW84 Like @OniinSide pointed out, there is a problem with this part of the update.

Space Lift Danger Panic! (Spring Loaded, €1.65 / £1.29 until 4th June, €0.80 / £0.65 until 4th June for users who have already downloaded Space Lift Danger Panic! with the same Nintendo Network ID - normally €2.49/ £1.99)

How do you buy the same downloadable game twice on the same console with the same NNID?



Knuckles commented on Mobile Is Konami's Future, According To Presid...:

After "firing" Kojima, Konami became dead to me. I am buying MGSV:TPP, and if they were to remake MG games using the Fox engine, and are good, then I would buy them. Other than that and Virtual Console releases, they are dead to me.
