MitchVogel commented on English Version of SplatNet Website for Splato...:

@Fandabidozi I just recently watched a nine minute video explaining the depths of Splatoon's gear system and it blew my mind. It reminds me of Pokemon, in a sense. Something that looks fairly simple on the surface actually has a significant amount of strategy to it if you dig a little deeper.



MitchVogel commented on Review: STARWHAL (Wii U eShop):

I asked my roommate and two others to play this with me so I could get a feel for the local multiplayer experience and had about half of my dorm hall in our room all shouting and cheering after roughly a half hour of playing. This is seriously one of the most fun multiplayer games I've played.



MitchVogel commented on Review: Super Mario Maker (Wii U):

10/10 eh? I still can't say that I'm sold on it, though. I mean, it's awesome that we're finally getting a level editor for Mario, but it's still just a level editor. I see the value in it, but I don't think this is for me.



MitchVogel commented on Mario History: Super Mario 64 DS - 2004:

I never really understood all the complaints about this remake. I honestly thought the controls from the original were pretty bad, too. These weren't that great either, but they were decent once you got used to it.



MitchVogel commented on Review: G.G Series SCORE ATTACKER (DSiWare):

@KeeperBvK We can needlessly split hairs over obscure sub-genre tags all day, but the point of this review is to get the gist of the game across to potential buyers that are looking for an opinion from somebody that has hands on experience with the game. All the same, I appreciate your comment! It's always interesting to see what devoted fans of the genre have to say.



MitchVogel commented on Preview: Rekindling Platforming Passion in Sup...:

@zackreed Not necessarily. I'm skeptical as to whether or not this can deliver 60$ worth of new, worthwhile content. When I say that, I don't mean in terms of levels, but in the tools themselves. What are we getting in this full fledged retail release that couldn't have been present in a hypothetical level editor that was released as DLC for NSMBU or even included in the initial product?



MitchVogel commented on Preview: Rekindling Platforming Passion in Sup...:

I'm still on the fence about this one. Everything I read about it is overwhelmingly positive and I believe this is a milestone moment in the franchise, but yet... something about it just doesn't grab me.

I mean, this certainly sounds to be much more advanced and feature heavy than "just another level editor" and when you get right down to it, this offers a platform for an infinite number of Mario levels and thus exceeds what any one Mario game could achieve. I guess my main question is: what justifies this as its own release?



MitchVogel commented on Review: Dragon Fantasy: The Volumes of Westeri...:

@FeedingTheWheel My favorite thing about it is how it simply feels like the most distilled recent example of a game from its time. I like playing JRPGs, but I can never play anything from that era (besides Chrono Trigger) for longer than a few hours before boredom sets in and I just can't fight the aged mechanics any more. This still has some of that, but it's much more bearable and enjoyable.



MitchVogel commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand on Miiverse and Its P...:

I don't really mind the limit as I rarely post to Miiverse, but the sentiment behind it bothers me somewhat. Miiverse has evolved into something bigger than Nintendo's original vision, yet instead of celebrating this Nintendo is regulating it to try to force it into becoming that original vision.
