KryptoKrunch commented on Veterans Of 3DS Title Xeodrifter Will Get The ...:

As Jayvir said, it really wasn't advertised that well here in the U.S. either. I mean, there is/was a banner for it in the eShop and when RK had it on sale it was showcased under the discounts tab...

It just seems to me that Europeans to like indies as much as we do.



KryptoKrunch commented on Nintendo Download: 25th June (North America):

I'm gonna have to pull the trigger on those SEGA 3D classics on sale. I already have Partners in Time and Star Fox on DS so I'll probably pass on those but both are great games. SF Command is such an underrated title, more people should give that one a go.



KryptoKrunch commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Retail Games of 201...:

Xenoblade X
Super Mario Maker
Star Fox Zero
Fatal Frame V
Yoshi WW
Devil's Third

Pretty much in that order, and I plan to buy all of these games. Pretty solid list for the rest of year. With these games, indie titles and not to mention my backlog, I still have plenty to play on Wii U.



KryptoKrunch commented on The Current State Of Virtual Reality Just Isn'...:

Gonna have to agree here. I know a lot of people are excited for VR now because Sony's doing it, but I can't see it taking off past a niche audience myself. The only VR game I'm interested in is the Walking Dead game and one game isn't going to push me into buying one. It just seems like VR will be a new gimmick that will fade very quickly. Playing multiplayer VR games sounds pretty terrible. Only one person can use the VR at a time while the other people are experiencing the game normally. Which isn't a bad thing but it just sounds like a mess.



KryptoKrunch commented on Take More Risks With Your eShop Purchases, Ple...:

I have no problem buying indies as long as they look cool and appeal to me. Part of the problem falls on Nintendo but part of the problem also falls on the people who like to dismiss indie titles for silly reasons.

Contrary to a few people, I actually avoid buying indie games on my Vita. The sales are nice and all, but the memory card prices are still outrageously high.



KryptoKrunch commented on Mighty No. 9 Signature Edition Will Not Be Ava...:

Yeah, I'm still trying to find out why they're limiting this to just PS4/XB1. If you pre-order this game, you get this DLC plus an artbook and double-sided poster(latter two items aren't in this SE). But that leaves the signature and figurine exclusive to the SE. So why can't they just ship SE to anyone regardless of their platform of choice?? If they run out of stock, then so be it but it's just a weird move to limit this to two platforms. I'll be picking up the Wii U version anyway and this won't affect my purchase decision but a baffling move nonetheless.



KryptoKrunch commented on Feature: Explaining Humble Bundle and What it ...:

This is a really good deal. I'm glad NoA and the indies involved could make this happen. It's also pretty neat that Nintendo is first out of the 'big 3' to have Humble Bundle on their platforms. I'm definitely eager for more HB in the future.



KryptoKrunch commented on Feature: Go Fast - An Ode To The Glorious Chao...:

They should test the waters and release an HD remake of X and/or GX on Wii U and see how well that does. Or maybe a 3D remake of one game, HD remake of the other. Whatever the case may be, just see if people actually put their money where their mouths are and actually support a F-Zero title regardless of it being a remake(s).

I'm not going to assume the NX is a console so I have no opinions on F-Zero for NX, yet.



KryptoKrunch commented on Talking Point: The Fragility of Buying Downloa...:

I prefer physical for new AAA releases like Smash Bros, Bayonetta 2, and soon to come Splatoon, but I have no problem downloading eShop indie titles like Shovel Knight and in some cases discounted retail titles that are on eShop. For example I bought Duck tales Remastered and SMT Devil Survivor Overclocked on sale on the Wii U and 3DS eShops respectively and those were considerably cheaper especially if you factor in tax and/or shipping costs.



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 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.
