MeloMan commented on Review: Dark Half (SNES):

Wow... the SNES continues to surprise me lol. I LOVED pure Enix, and I'd be interested to know who developed this as it sounds like something Quintet would've developed. Great plot... it'd be great to get my hands on this game.



MeloMan commented on Nintendo Download: 28th January (North America):

I'm going to play FFE via GameFly to see what it's about. I'll try to have an open mind, cause I know the Monster Hunter comparison will be inevitable even for me since I'm playing MH4U currently. Other than this... back to playing MH4U and XCX...



MeloMan commented on Rumour: Super Smash Bros. Planned as NX Launch...:

The only way I see SSB being a "launch" title is if SSB4 is ported, or, they are referring to another entry in the series (like a remaster and re-release of Melee or Brawl). There is no way in [expletive]-sake SSB5 will be available. I don't even think it's a twinkle in Sakurai's eye at this point.



MeloMan commented on The Official Legend of Zelda Timeline Has Been...:

Love the timeline, always had put together one, and due to fan demand, glad Nintendo made one The only thing I still kinda question, is how TriForce Heroes can have the artwork of Wind Waker, yet, it doesn't take place anywhere on the Wind Waker timeline, but it's ok lol. For the new Zelda, I've been hoping for 2 things: one, to reunite the timelines leading to two, a Zelda story finally in the "future" (post Zelda II in other words). We've dug so hard in the past which is fine, but it's time to see what happens after Link defeated Ganon once and for all. It needs to happen.



MeloMan commented on Macquarie Report Believes a Competitively-Pric...:

Ugh, my head... I honestly don't know WHAT to expect from Nintendo. For now, the hype is killing my psyche until E3. Until I hear something more tangible, I'm going to get off the hype train and just play all these games for Wii U/3DS that are out/coming out for now lol.



MeloMan commented on Video: Ghostbusters, Batman, Police Academy To...:

OMG... 1989-- Ghostbusters, Batman, Mouse Trap, Police Academy-- my childhood! I was, am, and will always be the BIGGEST Ghostbusters fan. For the Xmas of 88, I got an NES and the NES Ghostbusters lol. It's nice to know I'm not the only simultaneous Ghostbuster and NES kid



MeloMan commented on Review: FAST Racing NEO (Wii U eShop):

Honestly, I could nitpick about the game, but it's as close to F-Zero as I'm likely going to get any time soon. I'll be buried in XCX as of today, but there's no doubt I will be buying this and sinking in some time on it. Maybe the online was slow because everyone has the same skill level (read: maybe the speed picks up depending on how far everyone has progressed in the game or how well they drive? /speculation)



MeloMan commented on Review: The Adventures of Bayou Billy (Wii U e...:

It's a jack of all trades, but not a master of any of them. The game was a trip when I played it, lol, and I'm glad I had my game genie codes to help out. I made it a goal to play this game mainly because the character was featured in Captain N lol (same as the illustration of Bayou Billy at the top). Play if you like pain, but not a true "classic" imo



MeloMan commented on Review: The Legend of Legacy (3DS):

I really like the presentation of this game and the battle system, but I am put off by dungeon-crawlers. I'd play it if I had no other RPGs to play, and well... XCX. Nothing else for me to say



MeloMan commented on Review: Zoda's Revenge: StarTropics II (Wii U ...:

The review is spot on with how I feel. I felt the gameplay was superior to the first, but it definitely lacked the "charm" of the first. I feel as far as what made StarTropics "StarTropics" was captured superbly in the first game. For those that played the first and were on the fence about the 2nd, by all means play it as it's still a worthy play.



MeloMan commented on Feature: Why We're Still Playing... Super Metroid:

NL, you hit it right on the head about Meridia. I remember first hearing that hauntingly subtle tune-- I didn't have the words. Even the very hype tune playing when you first delve into Brinstar still pop in my gamer memory from time to time. They just don't make 'em like this anymore (but we can hope).



MeloMan commented on EA Will Evaluate "Any And All Opportunities" W...:

Eff EA and Ubisoft regarding their comments. Produce, or don't, but don't make promises you can't keep. It's the principle of it, whether money was lost on the Wii U or not. Put your money where your mouth is or keep it shut. Games or silence, I'll take either from them.



MeloMan commented on Rumour: Retro Is Working On A Game It Pitched ...:

Hmm... just a thought: If Retro didn't work on an old franchise, would they be "Retro"? Perhaps they will work on an original IP, but it will have an old school flavor to keep up with their namesake? Or perhaps they won't worry about that and will make an original FPS (I REALLY hope this is their project considering how good MP was). There's no telling, but they've proven to me that they produce quality and I can't wait until they unveil whatever it is.



MeloMan commented on Details Emerge on How Nintendo Accounts Will Work:

What I'm waiting to hear with unified accounts is the ability to redownload a game you've purchased and possibly back up the save file to Nintendo's server. (Example: Let's say I lose my 3DS and have to buy a new one. I now have to re-buy any games I previously downloaded and start new save files). Maybe that's asking for too much, but I'm hoping by the time the NX comes out, this unified account business will be even better.



MeloMan commented on Review: Slender: The Arrival (Wii U eShop):

Wow... so it's almost like Friday the 13th the video game then
Ugh... I like the premise, but I think I would be driven nuts if I'm that close to completing objectives only just to have to retrace my steps with no guarantee of getting my bearings any time soon. I think I'll wait for a sale or something.



MeloMan commented on Here's Where The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force He...:

Interesting. So the true hero, from Zelda: ALBW, is the one playing. So the world in the game is a multiverse node where multiple versions of the hero collide. In other news, I can only hope Zelda U would finally take the series beyond The Adventure of Link and/or unify the timeline once and for all.



MeloMan commented on Eiji Aonuma is Aiming For an Open World "Surpr...:

Maybe the open world twist will be an open world that spans not just land, but also sea (a la Wind Waker) and the air (a la Skyward Sword)? That TRULY would be a super massive, but nonetheless a Zelda-worthy "world".



MeloMan commented on Feature: Our Nintendo Gaming Plans for Hallowe...:

Hmm... I may give my Wii version of Ghostbusters another play (die hard GB fan here) more than likely. I may get around to making my first Ghost House in Super Mario Maker. Come to think of it, I have some scary/weird/etc stuff to play on my Wii U I've been slacking on: Year Walk, Lone Survivor, The Fall, and High Strangness. I think I'll give all of these a play.
