Mommar commented on The Keep:

I like the gameplay, it's like those classic AD&D games. I do wish the art direction were better. It's pretty rough looking.

Mommar commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:

Problem is it's severely late AND it hasn't reviewed all that well. We WiiU owners, in general, don't like to be snubbed and it simply isn't as great a game as it was supposed to be. I would have bought it at launch alongside the rest of them but now the game just doesn't sound like it's much fun at all. I don't want it anymore. Maybe if it were heralded as a masterpiece (or just really great) I'd get it just to support Ubi but I'm not buying a mediocre game just to convince them I buy 3rd party. I buy good 3rd party, not so-so and late to the game 3rd party.

This is especially stupid considering the Lego games sell very well on Nintendo hardware and the WiiU still has outsold the XboxOne. They seem to be just randomly be punishing WiiU owners because, hey, Nintendo sux!

Mommar commented on Ubisoft Clarifies Reasoning For The Crew Skipp...:

@Discostew You must not understand hardware architecture. It's more than just the amount of ram and "gigs" and stuff like that. The 360, PS4 and XBone are all exactly the same as a PC, and we're talking about hardware registers and things like that where the exact same compiler can be used to optimize the code for all three platforms at the same time. That cannot be done on the PS3 or WiiU as they aren't x86. Things like registers and memory caches work completely different on those two systems and it takes special changes/optimization to make it work.

Mommar commented on Ubisoft Clarifies Reasoning For The Crew Skipp...:

I know a lot of people here are complaining, or saying this is just an "excuse", but as a software engineer myself it really does make sense. The 360 was already based on x86 architecture and the XBOne and PS4 are both completely x86 architecture. So it's easier to port to the 360, which is what they said. The WiiU and PS3 both have very different hardware and it's a lot of effort.

Mommar commented on Review: Steel Empire (3DS eShop):

People complaining about the price are only hurting all of us. It's a good game in a niche genre. If you aren't going to buy it until it's $5 the developer is going to go out of business and move on because they can't make a return on it. It's that simple.

I've always wanted just regular SNES games on the 3DS, however after playing some of the NES 3D remakes I don't understand why they don't re-release the entire NES/SNES back catalog in 3D. It makes things feel so fresh again.

Mommar commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Master System:

The Genesis my father bought came with an adapter that let you play old Master System games as well. MY brother and I rented more than a few to check them out and they were pretty much all terrible/unplayable as far as we could tell.

Maybe they'll have a story next about the dangers of jogging, too many people are clogging up our sidewalks looking for that next "runners high" and it's led to an epidemic of knee surgeries. That's valuable tax dollars being spent on every medical procedure to feed addictions!

Mommar commented on Tomonubu Itagaki Thinks Gamers Will Buy A Wii ...:

I'll buy it to support new Third Party WiiU titles however I don't really think this is going to bring over new converts like he says. There's a flaw in his argument, Dead Or Alive was already an established brand by the time he moved it to the XBox. This game has nothing behind it except possibly his name, if most people even recognize that. Which I doubt.

Mommar commented on Video: DJ Jazzy Jeff, Jeremy Ellis and The Roo...:

Jeremy Ellis wasn't "DJ'ing" really, just using a midi controller to mix/skip different parts of the track. Jazzy Jeff was doing the traditional Turntable-ism/DJ'ing gig. Both were impressive displays of different kinds of talent, however I didn't really enjoy either of the performances.

@Azikira Given that Namco is known for making fighting games and Smash Bros is home to marquee Nintendo (and Sega and Konami and Capcom) characters why shouldn't the company assisting with the creation of the next iteration include their own marquee character?

Mommar commented on Review: Ittle Dew (Wii U eShop):

I want to like this game but the combination of loose control mechanics and crap attack distance means it's just too frustrating for me to want to continue, which is too bad because the puzzle mechanics are done really well. Nintendo could learn a thing or two about varying their design mechanics from this game.

@JakeShapiro
Not once during my entire stint living during the 80's or 90's have I heard of an "anti-Japanese" phenomena or, rather, some sort of "xenophobia." The only time I ever really heard anything similar was in the late 80's/early 90's, very many Hawaiians weren't happy that so much land was being bought up by Japanese businessmen. Otherwise, no anti-Japanese sentiment of any kind as far as I can recollect.

Mommar commented on Nintendo's Plan for "Redefining the Definition...:

"The issue of Nintendo's next hardware was naturally raised, especially in light of the Wii U's current struggles. It's been made clear that Nintendo is not short of ideas for its next product, but that it's still prioritising satisfying the current generation of gamers."

In other words, they're not going to pull a Sega and just start pulling hardware support every few years.

Mommar commented on Review: Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse (3DS ...:

@Damo I hadn't revisited Castlevania 3 since the SNES came out. Looking at it now I'm VERY impressed with how the graphics have held up. I kind of wish there were a 3D treatment of it on the 3DS, I think the backgrounds are complex enough that it would really pop.
