Mommar commented on Rumour: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Dat...:

@Bulbousaur Because the walking speed is touchy and irritating, I'd rather have two speeds I can rely on rather than some inconsistent gradient. And none of the characters I main have tilt moves so it's completely worthless for me.

Don't tell me what I will and won't like. I've used the d-pad for every game in the series and it works better for my play style. Having the option won't hurt you but it will help me and the many people who want the same patched back in.



Mommar commented on Feature: The Making of Rocket: Robot on Wheels:

Based on the design of the main character and packaging I can't say I would be immediately interested in this game if I saw it at the store. That being said, I've never heard of this title and it does sound like fun. Too bad.



Mommar commented on New Nintendo 3DS LL Outsells Standard Model By...:

I'm more interested in longer battery life, really, and I don't like the color options for the smaller model. However after viewing the regular XL 3DS at the store I don't really want the giant screen as I feel, given the limitation in resolution/graphic performance, the larger screen helps to emphasize the lower polygon models and texture quality. Games actually look worse on the larger screens IMO. So I'm not sure which version I really want. It would also be nice to know how easy it is to reach the secondary buttons on the XL model as I don't have the largest hands for a man.



Mommar commented on Review: Castlevania: Dracula X (Wii U eShop / ...:

I do find it ironic that the first thing people say about this game is that it's not Rondo of Blood, and the second thing is that it has super dated/restricted controls... which were lifted directly from Rondo of Blood.



Mommar commented on Guide: Everything You Need to Know About Super...:

One more thing, I've not seen anybody anywhere mention this (even after I asked about it) but you can rearrange how you want your buttons laid out and you can have a separate jump button, in addition to turning off jumping by tapping up. You cannot, however, switch movement to the d-pad and taunts to the circle pad. I took a chance hoping you could do this but you can't and I pretty much hate playing on the circle pad so I'll likely only pick up Smash on the 3DS when I'm really bored of other games I have as I absolutely, positively HATE controlling the game with the circle pad.



Mommar commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS (3DS):

Are there options for using different control schemes? To be honest I've never, ever used a stick on a Smash Bros title and I think the circle pad is pretty atrocious for fighting games in general. I've always used the D-pad for Smash Bros. and being forced to use the Circle Pad in the demo was frustrating and uncomfortable. Also, all other releases of Smash Bros used to have a secondary jumping button in addition to tapping up. Is that still the case here, as some quick jumping/downward attacks are easier with the button+down combo instead of having to jam up then down quickly.

"The Legend of Zelda X Mario Kart 8 will be the first paid-DLC pack for the Wii U racer this November"

Err, what? Then what are those two DLC packs (Zelda and Animal crossing) on the US eShop that you have to pay for right now? $7.99 each or $11.99 for the combo.



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.



Mommar commented on LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham DLC Season Pass i...:

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.



Mommar commented on Feature: Where Are The Super Nintendo 3D Class...:

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.



Mommar commented on British Tabloid The Sun Brands Gaming "As Addi...:

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.
