Kroisos commented on Feature: The Best Pro Wrestling Games That the...:

I think it's funny that AKI is now syn Sophia, best known for Style Savvy/Style Boutique. I can't think of two genres further apart than wrestling and fashion sim, and I wonder just how they are so good at both.



Kroisos commented on Monster Tale on Its Way to the 3DS eShop in a ...:

This is one of those always-meant-to-get-around-to-playing titles that I actually did around to playing. Mid-tier describes it perfectly, and it is one of the better examples of such. Without Chomp the backtracking would have been a bit much, but if you wanted to develop his forms to a significant degree you were going to have to grind anyway and could backtrack while doing so. If I want to replay the game I'll double-dip, but there aren't many games I have time to get around to replaying.



Kroisos commented on Nintendo Download: 26th March (North America):

@Mr_G I know. It's almost like Nintendo would rather give new content a chance to stick out, for a week at least, rather than bury it under a flood of titles. Or that they think that the average consumer isn't like the loud minority that one finds commenting here, who apparent have so much time on their hands that they need about 500 games a year--just of the old stuff, this isn't even to mention new titles--to fill it.



Kroisos commented on ​Style Savvy Sequel Lets You Accessorize Wit...:

I am a proud Girls Mode/Style Savvy fan who, if he played more FPSes, would be the exact opposite of this game's expected audience. I hope I get the chance to walk into GameStop and announce that I'm picking up this preorder. For me.



Kroisos commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Heading For a Period of ...:

I think one thing people are failing to consider is that this move does not require Nintendo to abandon its fundamental design principles, namely gameplay/fun first, and working in unison with the hardware. The only difference is that the hardware won't be theirs. I have a lot of problems with the entirety of the mobile gaming market, but a good game is a good game regardless of platform, including plenty of mobile games--one of my all-time favorites, Monument Valley, comes to mind--and if there is any developer I trust to make mobile fun, it's Nintendo.



Kroisos commented on Hyper Light Drifter Might Not Hit Wii U Until ...:

@accc Just like I was never going to buy a phone without a physical keyboard...until they didn't make them anymore because that's how the market went. There are so many advantages to digital releases from a production standpoint--the marginal cost of producing additional copies is virtually zero; there is no chance of unsold inventory--and enough people either prefer or at least accept it that that's how the market is going for all but the biggest titles. Which I think is a good thing, because it helps create a wider range of games. Devs can focus on the game they want to make without worrying about needing the AAA budget and production values necessary to justify a physical production run.



Kroisos commented on Poll: Which 2015 Nintendo Blockbusters Should ...:

I would love Xenoblade amiibo support that would read my original save file from within XCX and transfer it to XC3D. I'd love to play the game on my NN3DS (even the abbreviation is unwieldy), but after 216 hours of leveling everyone up, maximizing everyone's affinity for everyone else, finishing 90+% of the quests, and sometimes wandering around Satorl Marsh at night just to listen to the music, I don't see myself starting from scratch.



Kroisos commented on Gone Home Console Versions Are "Not Actively i...:

People aren't focusing enough on the economic implications of this announcement. Games that you think are mediocre aren't the only ones that will struggle as the industry tries to adapt to changes that occur more quickly than it can possibly handle.



Kroisos commented on Nintendo Confirms Japanese eShop Release Dates...:

There might be issues with Pandora's Tower coming to NA, since Xseed published it here. (Since I already own it personally that's a nonissue.) If it does perhaps there will be a patch...

One of the things I loved best about the game was how it genuinely made me care about Elena's plight. The second boss took me forever and I made it back with literally moments to spare, and rather than feeling satisfaction at succeeding as with most games and bosses, I felt like I had betrayed her for allowing her to suffer so much. It even changed the way I played--later on I'd return to the tower more frequently, just to avoid taking that risk again. It's about as strong an emotional connection as I've felt for a fictional character.

Plus the Wiimote is a whip.



Kroisos commented on Mobot Studios Aims for High Quality Fun at a B...:

Mobot is absolutely right: there's a place for these games, and they--and the players--deserve just as much polish as larger titles. And NL is right as well; there's reason to be optimistic at this point that this will be one such game.



Kroisos commented on Adventure Bar Story is Your Typical RPG and Pu...:

Looks interesting enough, and the one major irrational fanboy stance I allow myself is hatred for mobile gaming, so I try to support devs who move back to dedicated handhelds. I'll keep my eye on this, especially since I need 5 coins to hit platinum for the year.



Kroisos commented on Yusuke Hashimoto Outlines His Desire to Contin...:

As much as I want to see what Hashimoto can do with his own IP, what matters the most is the gameplay, so if he gets all sorts of crazy ideas for Bayo3 or a Jeanne spinoff, then I want those games made.

To everyone who wants TW102, that game will never happen. This is Platinum; they'd make TW1001. And that is another game I want made.



Kroisos commented on Tomonobu Itagaki Gives an Update on Devil’s ...:

If this game has half the personality Itagaki has it will be a must-play for me. As Jules Winfield says, personality goes a long way. Even if it's flawed, it will be a must-play; with Itagaki's resume I'm sure the game won't be bad, and I'll take soul with flaws over soulless perfection any day.



Kroisos commented on Mario Party 10 Official Website Prompts Specul...:

I'd get Rosalina, but I don't need DK and I hate Wario. Daisy is at the top of my wish list, and I will preorder from every place I could to make sure I got one. And you know what? To share the Daisy love I'd sell any extras on eBay at cost. I will not sully the Princess's name by profiteering.



Kroisos commented on Sneaky Ninja Infiltrates Kickstarter:

I haven't had a chance to look closely enough yet to know if I will pledge, although "stealth platformer" has me intrigued and I'm receptive to the idea. That said, I worry that the goal is too low; it doesn't seem like enough to abate any risk the game would have of not being finished, nor enough to improve the game much. Like I said, I haven't looked closely yet, and I will, so maybe my concerns have already been addressed, or I will like what I see enough to take a risk. We'll see.



Kroisos commented on Ubisoft's Unreleased and Finished Wii U Game H...:

Ubisoft, do you want sales on Wii U? Make an effort, and make good games. I've got an idea for you, one you can have for free, which will guarantee you a profit on Wii U: Beyond Good and Evil 2. You're welcome.



Kroisos commented on First Impressions: We're Really Feeling It Wit...:

There's an article on that states XC 3D has a jukebox mode that works even while the system is asleep; it includes a screenshot that clearly states "Manage Streetpass." So they're doing something; just no idea what.



Kroisos commented on Hollow Knight Hits Stretch Goal to Confirm Wii...:

I'm quite excited about this. I first heard of it just a few days ago and was hoping they'd hit the stretch so I could pledge. It may be hard to tell the caliber of gameplay, but I absolutely love the art direction.



Kroisos commented on Rumour: Villager, Marth & Wii Fit Trainer amii...:

@WingedSnagret They probably know more than you think. The demand for Marth comes from the small but very vocal minority found on sites like this. It doesn't represent the market as a whole. Nintendo will make more money by focusing on more popular characters instead of chasing the profits of those exploiting the resale market.



Kroisos commented on Feature: Nintendo Life's Horrifying Halloween ...:

I'll be sitting in my apartment, happy that no little rugrats, or kids who are too old to go trick or treating, can knock on my door, rocking Bayonetta 2. When the Gamepad is about dead, I'll grind for a few levels in Bravely Default, so I can power through the endgame.



Kroisos commented on Atlus Finalises Persona Q Premium and Limited ...:

As much of a fan of the Etrian series as I am, between the cost of this edition, not having played all the Etrian titles fully, not having played any Persona titles before, and having an RPG backlog a few dozen deep, I have to pass on this title. It is appealing, to be sure, and my gut tells me to get it, but this is one of those times my head needs to overrule.
