Melkac commented on Archie Announces Sonic Boom Comic Book Series ...:

@mr_nihilism No, "he" isn't. The female Thor is a new character altogether, the old Thor simply isn't worthy of carrying the hammer anymore (like 99.99999% of the Marvel Universe). Considering Thor: GoT's writer is absolutely fantastic, no one should be worried.



Melkac commented on Review: Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship E...:

Basically all comments in this review are pretty much this: "Wow I already played it on other platformers but it's available now on Wii U so other people will be able to enjoy it yay!"

...I guess they won't be.



Melkac commented on Iwata's Approval Rating Rises While Miyamoto's...:

@midnafanboy You know what would've been a much better? A cool cinematic of Star Fox doing something cool. Pre-rendered. Miyamoto could even make sure the cinematic looked as close as the (in-game) final product, so why didn't they do that?
Instead we get a blurry screen.



Melkac commented on Iwata's Approval Rating Rises While Miyamoto's...:

@outburst Well, Assault had 3rd person gameplay that fit the series (shooting), unlike Adventure (...Zelda clone).
And yeah, they can actually improve upon that.

@midnafanboy When they..."first" showed up? They never showed it. It was pretty damn obvious it was Star Fox. Showing just a blurry screen was a terrible mistake, horribly anticlimatic.

@ModestFan93 Wow, uh, excuse me for not sucking Miyamoto's nuts, then.



Melkac commented on Stats Suggest That UK Kids Are More Likely To ...:

Stupid UK! Should learn more about good games with their FIFA and whatnot...

Just kidding, this is not really surprising. Kids stick with any bad games their parents give them, and since tablet/smartphone games are cheaper, they stick with those.
THANKFULLY there still are some parents smart enough to give their children actual gaming devices. And smartphones/tablets are not really affecting 3DS sales in any significant way so...



Melkac commented on Thank Goodness, The Burning Mystery Of Bayonet...:

@rjejr Nintendo had little to do with the development of Bayonetta 2...not to mention Kamiya isn't the kind of person that would let them make such a change just for the sake of being more "family friendly". You certainly sound like you're spreading the truth, even though...yeah, you're kind of wrong.



Melkac commented on Hands On: Bewitching Bayonetta 2 Brings Action...:

The Wonderful 101 should totally be re-released. Just give the game to any other development studio from Nintendo (R&D? Retro? ...Monolith???) and fix all the little issues the original game had. THEN make a sequel, the possibilities are endless!

About Bayonetta 1+2, I've been excited for Bayo2 ever since it was announced so yeah. I really hope it sells well...that's completely up to Nintendo, though. Advertise the damn thing, Reggie.



Melkac commented on Hyrule Warriors Downloadable Costume Sets Feat...:

Wow. Twilight Princess Link looks terrible even in HD! No wonder Miyamoto wants to get as far away from that art style as posssible...
Something like Skyrim meets Skyward Sword (hint: colors) would've been a perfect balance, imho. I love how Zelda U looks, but...yet another cel-shaded game after Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks, Skyward Sword and A Link Between Worlds? Do something different, Aonuma!



Melkac commented on Bayonetta Anime Film Will be Distributed in Un...:

@ScorpionMG Yeah. I'm sure watching Fullmetal Alchemist or Attack on Titan in japanese makes a lot of sense...

Anyway, the sub vs dub debate is a matter of which language has the better dub. If the english dub is...watchable, I'll watch it. This VERY rarely happens however, since the english voice don't fit the actual characters most of the time...
Latino dubs are great, though. For anime, at least. Most of their voices fit the characters perfectly and some are even better than their japanese counterparts! (Dragon Ball/Z, Sakura Card Captor, Serial Experiments Lain, Yu-Gi-Oh: Duel Monsters [oh god, specially this one], Shaman King...Koni-cha-- [OH MY GOD THIS ONE!!!!!])

Aaaand that's the thing with english dubs. I haven't watched a single english dub that's actually better than the original. I've heard Cowboy Bebop's and FLCL's are better than the japanese ones, but I haven't seen either one of those...
There ARE a lot of great english dubs in western animation, though. Not sure why the anime industry is any different when it shouls be even more professional since most animes aren't aimed at kids/"everyone", they're aimed at teenagers or even adults.

/end rant.



Melkac commented on iPad Title Castaway Paradise Does A Pretty Con...:

"In fact, this is as close to a carbon copy of Animal Crossing you could possibly get. From the art-style--"

WOAH. Nonononono. Don't dare say that horrible, terrible art style is similar to AC's in the slightest. Nope.



Melkac commented on Nintendo 64 Titles Heading to the Wii U Virtua...:

@Jayvir Yup, it hasn't aged well at all. It's still a surprisingly fun game to play if you can ignore the stiff controls for Mario, weird camera controls and sometimes awkward level design. The same can't be said for the Sonic Adventure games.
