KryptoKrunch commented on Feature: The Full Story Behind Star Fox 2, Nin...:


Agreed 100%. Star Fox Command is actually a great SF title. A slight change from the standard formula certainly doesn't hurt this game. I really liked the new antagonists in this game and the multiple different endings really made this game replayable. Definitely an underrated DS game.



KryptoKrunch commented on Ronimo Games Explains Pricing for Swords & Sol...:

As long as it's good enough to warrant the $20 price tag, I don't see the fuss. I payed $15 for Shovel Knight and that was well worth it; there have been much worse games with a $60 price tag.

As someone mentioned above, Steam sales and mobile games pricing have kinda messed up everyone's expectations. Which shouldn't be the case really.



KryptoKrunch commented on ​Don't Starve: Giant Edition Arrives on the ...:

I've heard nothing but good things about this so I'm definitely picking this one up. It's cool that the Wii U has been getting some solid indie titles just within the last few weeks(Ultratron, High Strangeness and Don't Starve).



KryptoKrunch commented on Review: High Strangeness (Wii U eShop):

I really like the 8 and 16 bit transformation in this game to solve puzzles and such. Very similar to the light and dark world transformation in A Link to the Past. This will definitely be a future eShop purchase for me.



KryptoKrunch commented on Former Castlevania Producer Koji Igarashi's Ki...:

Looks like one of the stretch goals will be a Wii U and/or 3DS version. They never said it wouldn't come to Nintendo platforms, they just couldn't confirm it at the get go. People need to quit with the negativity, it's beyond exhausting at this point.



KryptoKrunch commented on Poll: Did The Splatoon Global Testfire Hit Its...:

It was obviously more of a server/online test rather than a typical demo so I have to give Nintendo credit for putting a beta of sorts rather than putting out a game with broken online(like certain publishers did last year, lol).

They should do it again, but this time, make it span an entire day or split it up however. Like Friday, Saturday Sunday from 10am-2pm and then again the same day from like 4pm-8pm or something like that.



KryptoKrunch commented on SEGA and M2 Are Happy to Continue 3D Classics ...:

Cool. I'd like to see Revenge of Shinobi, Shining Force II and Phantasy Star IV get the 3D classic treatment.

Mortal Kombat II(or 3 Ultimate) and the Toe Jam & Earl games would be neat too but SEGA doesn't own those IPs so those may not happen.



KryptoKrunch commented on Here's How the Combat System Will Work in Shin...:

I really liked the battle system in Overclocked and this will be pretty much the same so I'm digging this.

The demon auction was a cool mechanic too. I'm glad that's making a return. Pretty sure there are more demons in RB so this game will be great.



KryptoKrunch commented on Talking Point: Mario Kart 8 DLC is a Winning F...:

Yeah, I'd love to see more DLC packs. As for characters, Birdo, Diddy Kong, Bowser Jr., Dry Bones, Zelda and Captain Falcon and would my top choices.

In terms of tracks, the formula of mixing brand new and old is perfect. I'm not much of a battle mode person but they should probably just make it like the classic style. Either way, MK8 is personally my favorite racing game ever and it just got better with the latest DLC.



KryptoKrunch commented on Poll: Would You Like Mario Kart 8 and Super Sm...:

I'd love to see MK8 and Smash get supported until the Wii U's predecessor comes out. Mario Kart 8's DLC is brilliant; get a ton of new content divided between two packs for only $12. I definitely want to see pack 3 and 4 for MK8.

As for Smash, I still like the DLC plan for it, but they should follow more of MK8's DLC and do something like Lucas and another character or two, a few Mii costumes and a stage for X amount.

Still, both games have cool DLC and I'd be happy to see more DLC from both games.



KryptoKrunch commented on Marvel at the Launch Trailer, Live Music and T...:

This looks amazing. I wasn't really expecting Ribbon Road and Cheese Land being re-done, but I'm glad they did. It's always nice to see the flat tracks from the SNES and GBA entries being completely re-done in stunning HD and being brought to life.



KryptoKrunch commented on Project X Zone 2 Crosses Over to the West For ...:

PXZ was a great game. Excellent fan service and a fun SRPG with a unique fighting game-esque combat system. The one thing I felt PXZ was missing however, was a shop where you can buy healing items, XP items and stat boosters etc.



KryptoKrunch commented on Poll: Vote For Your Ten Must-Play Games On Nin...:

Really tough to narrow it down to 10 since the 3DS has so many awesome games but I went with:

3D Land
Smash Bros.
AC: New Leaf
LoZ: OoT 3D
Kid Icarus: Uprising
Pokemon Y

I almost voted for: M&L Dream Team, Luigi's Mansion DM, Kirby Triple Deluxe, Ghost Recon Shadow Wars and Majora's Mask 3D.



KryptoKrunch commented on Reaction: The Nintendo 'NX', and Why We Think ...:

I'd love the idea. Imagine the 3DS and Wii U libraries combined that just sounds awesome. Plus, it's just easier for Nintendo to develop all their games on one platform.

I'd imagine most people would be happy with a unified platform. I see too many comments here on NL and other sites complaining that a certain game is exclusive to 3DS or Wii U and not on both.

Nintendo announces 3DS exclusive: "Ah man I'd rather have this on Wii U!!"
Nintendo announces Wii U exclusive: "Ah man I'd rather have this on 3DS!!"

Those kinda comments annoy me sometimes. So yeah, unified platform would be cool.



KryptoKrunch commented on Nintendo Set To License All IP to Mobile Publi...:

lawl I love how some folks are freaking out. Nintendo will still be making hardware and still be making their awesome games on said hardware. They'll just be making smaller, budget titles on iOS such as Pokemon Shuffle and such.

Give the doom and gloom card a rest for once. We don't even know everything about this yet either.



KryptoKrunch commented on Elliot Quest Has Fresh Release Dates for Both ...:

Five dungeons and 16 bosses sounds like the game will be pretty solid length.

But yeah, I've been really excited for this since it was confirmed for Wii U. 13 bucks isn't too bad considering 5 dungeons/over 16 bosses and gameplay looks fun.



KryptoKrunch commented on Soapbox: Portable Gaming Forges a Special Rela...:

Great write-up Tom. I've owned every Nintendo handheld since the Gameboy Color and haven't looked back since. Nintendo's handhelds will always be king of portable gaming and there have been some handheld Nintendo titles that just as good if not better than console counterparts and console games in general.



KryptoKrunch commented on Club Nintendo Goes Rewards Crazy With Final Up...:

Holy cow, I knew CN would have tons of cool rewards in Feb. and I'm not disappointed. So much cool stuff!

Just to clear up confusion, you can still redeem coins from older games that came out before Jan. 20. That includes retail and digital titles.
