Kriedler commented on Masahiro Sakurai Praises the Achievements of S...:

Steam is the best on every level except one: achievements. Comparing your achievements to a friend's is ridiculously complicated, involving going through like 10 menus. Otherwise, he's hit the nail on the head. The community beats the Miiverse, Early Access/ Steam Workshop/ Greenlight are great, their trading card system is awesome, their gifting/inventory system is great, the Steam overlay while gaming rocks, their chat function/ messaging is king, and their party system beat's Microsoft and Sony's. Nintendo doesn't have one at all.
So, yeah, Steam is the best.
Not to mention all the sales... :P
The summer/winter sales destroy my wallet every year :P



Kriedler commented on Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut Is A ...:

I'll get this when the price drops. Got the PC version on Steam for like $1.50, and thought it was pretty good (even though the narrator for the trailer can't pronounce the title properly).
But, full price for a fairly old game is a little much to ask.
Speaking of the Wind Waker....



Kriedler commented on Kamiya: Nintendo "Totally Respected" The Creat...:

Man, would SOMEONE just make a damn Starfox game?
Anyways, I bought the Wonderful 101 yesterday. I wasn't going to, but after hearing how badly it was doing, I pretty much had to. I feel really bad for Platinum. They make some awesome games that hardly get recognized



Kriedler commented on Bethesda: Wii U Is "Not On Our Radar" Right Now:

Bethesda should just stick to PC games, really. Their games are usually pretty buggy, and letting the community create mods to fix patches or make much-needed gameplay tweaks is really the way to go.
That said, people would probably buy their games on the Wii U if they were well-made enough and not just watered-down ports, like any of their coming games would end up being



Kriedler commented on Talking Point: It's Time for a 3DS Storage Upg...:

You guys forgot one really important issue: onboard storage. It's grossly inadequate since DSiWare can ONLY be launched from the system and not the SD card. I've been forced to stop downloading DSiWare games because I don't want to lose high scores and other save data on my DSiWare games. Not to mention the load of games I have on my SD card all downloaded but not playable.



Kriedler commented on Need for Speed: Most Wanted U:

I'll be buying this if you give it a good review :P
But with this, SC2, Mirror of Fate, Lego City and two versions of Monster Hunter.... it's an expensive month :P



Kriedler commented on Wii U Price Cut Isn't in Nintendo's Plans:

But, see, Nintendo throws around the word "value" a lot. They put out something inferior, like consoles that are weaker than far older ones; that lack Bluray/DVD support (despite the fact that Reggie said "time spent on any other device is a missed opportunity"); games that would have wildly benefited with online play but lack it for no apparent reason; and charging full retail price for 1+ year old digital games online, then they say "but, you're not thinking of the VALUE."
Why is it a value? If I'm going to get less for more, they'd better give me a damn good reason.
I do love my Wii U, but it's a missed opportunity :P
Or several, rather...



Kriedler commented on Nano Assault EX:

Well, since they stiffed us in the PAL region on a retail release, guess I'm grabbing this one up :P



Kriedler commented on Rumour: Grand Theft Auto V Coming To Wii U:

I love CDON, but they've been very wrong before. I preordered Dead or Alive Dimensions there, and when I inquired if the ban (that happened a day or two before release) meant I wouldn't be getting mine (they typically ship a few days before release), they didn't know anything about it and were so sure it was just sold out :P
Damn Swedes....



Kriedler commented on Ever Wonder Why Pokémon Black And White 2 Isn...:

I'm more bummed that they didn't do what they did with Gold/Silver. Give extra functions etc for anyone using the new hardware. They could have at least given it the new aspect ratio for the top screen or StreetPass (it has a primitive StreetPass, if anyone remembers from the first B/W) if you're on the 3DS.



Kriedler commented on Nintendo Download: 16th August 2012 (Europe):

I'm actually surprised. The price of the NSMB2 download is actually cheaper in Norway than it would be in pretty much any store... by about 15%.
(This is one of the most expensive countries in the world, haha)



Kriedler commented on Zombii Attack:

Looks like some half-decent shovelware. If this gets a 6 or above, I might get it :P



Kriedler commented on Talking Point: The Evolution of the 3DS:

If they really want to make the 3DS a great machine, they only need to do two things: Swapnote, and adding the ability to launch DSiWare from the SD card. Then, I'll be 100% satisfied with my purchase.
Oh, and when the new Flipnote comes, it'd be cool if they could be sent in a similar fashion to Swapnote :P



Kriedler commented on In Space, Nobody Can Hear This Aliens: Infesta...:

I'll be getting this, but I'll need to know if the L and R buttons will be used. Gotta know if I'm finally swapping DQIX out of my DSi or if I have to use my 3DS. Or I can just take my f'ing DSi apart and void the warranty....
But, I digress. Looks awesome. But, need more info :P



Kriedler commented on Talking Point: Your 25 Years of Metroid Memories:

My first time playing a Metroid game was Metroid 2 on the GB. My friend said he was going to run it over whenever his parents left their keys around because he hated it so much, so I rescued it. I remember getting a Nintendo trading card a few years before with a picture of Samus on it, and had always thought she looked cool enough to give her game a shot. Never stopped playing since then. I've bought every_single_one by this time, and still pissed that the 3DS hasn't had an announcement for one yet :P



Kriedler commented on Jagged Alliance:

I remember getting this one on the DS and thinking it was an awesome direct port of the original, but kindof a missed opportunity for an enhanced port :P
Features like moving in realtime until you make contact with enemies and such (like in Jagged Alliance 2) would have made the game a lot better :P



Kriedler commented on Fortified Zone:

Ok, it says there's multi on the box. I'm guessing we're not getting it on the VC?
