MeloMan commented on Watch Dogs Will be the Only "Mature" Ubisoft G...:

I still think it's mostly because Nintendo doesn't do a good job advertising it's 3rd party games. But I guess that's just a staple of Nintendo. While I can't argue them putting their own 1st party games in the spotlight, if Nintendo (IF that is) they want to so called "win back" the 3rd parties, then feature them as hard if not harder than your 1st parties. Most people already know they can count on Nintendo for the Marios and Zeldas, but people don't know, or have little reason to care, that 3rd party games "are" on the system. Not a hopeless situation by any stretch, but you'd think Nintendo would've learned something by now...



MeloMan commented on Super Smash Bros. For 3DS To Feature More Trop...:

Bout time. As much as I like the luck and hard work aspects of getting trophies, I like the ability to just buy it. One of my pass times is reading about the trophies and all the Nintendo (and non-Nintendo) lore.



MeloMan commented on Review: Strike Force Foxx (3DS eShop):

I kinda expected this game was like this. While I do love a good arcade experience, and I think this will scratch that itch, my backlog of games is going to put this one toward the bottom of my to-do list. If by some freak chance I get though the games ahead of it, I'll give it a go.



MeloMan commented on Review: Siesta Fiesta (3DS eShop):

That's long enough. It's a brick breaker game?! I LOVE brick breakers, and someone has actually evolved the concept? I had no idea what this game was about. 9/10 definitely helps but I'm sold already when it comes to this genre. What a pleasant surprise (and enjoyable time waster).



MeloMan commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Release in Japan See...:

3DS Pro... you and I are on the EXACT SAME PAGE. Enough with the accessories (although with this latest one, I'm glad this thing allows the 3DS to remain symmetric this time, though why not put the circle pad on the right side?). It's time for the 3DS to come built with a second circle pad. C'mon Nintendo, if you can give the Gamepad 2 sticks, give the next inevitable iteration of the 3DS 2 circle pads.



MeloMan commented on Yumi's Odd Odyssey Hooks In Permanent Price Dr...:

I was indeed on the fence about this.... I like platformers and quirky platformers, but this game seemed so over priced I definitely was not going to get it until dropped to a reasonable price. I still don't want to get it at $20, but people are really raving about this game. If I can open a gap in my gaming backlog then I'll be sure to pick this up.



MeloMan commented on Sakurai Explains Why Chrom Didn't Make It Into...:

As much as I loved Ike, because of differentiating among FE characters, I would've been fine with letting him go. That way we continue the trend of Marth from the first FE game and Chrom and co. from the latest, then Chrom could've been balanced to be stronger than Marth or Lucina, but a mix of the two (though I do admit, Ike is a much bigger contrast). I'm not a whiner though, I'll play with whoever Sakurai throws at me. I guess this means he's a decent lock for an Assist Trophy then...?



MeloMan commented on Review: The Letter (Wii U eShop):

Quote the video: "Why am I here?"

Sigh.... I just want a good point and click game to play... this is one of the simplest genres to NOT eff up, and someone manages to. I might as well buy Secret Agent Files: Miami, at least it got a 3/10. Ah well, there's always Syberia for PC I never finished.... <_<



MeloMan commented on Review: City Mysteries (3DS eShop):

Hidden object games have all but destroyed what few point-and-clicks seem to exist anymore. If any devs are reading this, there's some of us that still love the adventure/point-and-click genre and the 3DS is in dire need of a few. Thanks.



MeloMan commented on Nintendo To Keep Focus as an "Entertainment Bu...:

Been out of the loop on this, but I guessed right about the health aspect. What better way to make sure your co. has residuals other than to tie your business into the things that are "never" going away. Case in point:


Just to name a couple. If this indeed is what Nintendo's after, then they're getting into a nice little side niche that will likely be transparent to most of us but beneficial to those that need it most.



MeloMan commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Explains His Belief That the ...:

Nintendo finds strength in uniqueness and risk taking... in most circles, that's not good enough to be a winner, but that's a testament to Nintendo as a company. Like 'em or hate 'em, they've seeded their destiny in the videogame world until only they take themselves out of it.



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

Interesting to know how much goes into a game some times... looks like they went through A LOT of painstaking brainstorming to arrive at the final product. All I can say is, "thanks guys", and "I plan to support". :)



MeloMan commented on Devil's Third Developer Discusses Its Unique A...:

Take a chance, right promotion, even 3rd parties can achieve good result. Nintendo may be the hardware manufacturer that has to lead the installed Wii U base, but that's no excuse for 3rd parties to not "help" it. Scared money doesn't make money, and I hope this does well.
