NibelsnarfNoob commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

If I wasn't going to get a game (regardless of score) I just go see the rating. If it is a game I'm on the fence about I check the rating (to see if learning more about the game is worth the time) and if it's positive I'll read the whole review and make a decision. Though sometimes I ignore reviews altogether since some games I enjoy won't get positive scores anyway ie. most Warriors games.

Very rarely do I buy games that I dislike because I usually follow coverage of the game from announcement until launch. So i generally know if I'm going to like the game or not. I've only bought maybe 4 games in the last 5+ years that I wasn't sure I'd enjoy. Dillon's rolling western which despite positive scores I didn't like at all, Izuma Eleven which dissapointed, Pokemon Battle Trozei was ok, and Conception II which I loved.

@brandonbwii I think the weakspots had a lot of angle limits and some of the guns had lower accuracy, with the Crossbow Lion uses I hit weakpoints every time I aimed for one.
@steamtrain I agree, enemies also had the same weapon weakness as your characters (grenade users have no overwatch, Hounds with machine gun like fire have low accuracy with angled terrain and larger distances).
Enemy turn speed definitely could be better but it didn't bother me as much since the pacing is slow anyway.



NibelsnarfNoob commented on Impressions: Nintendo Made The Right Call With...:

I'm a huge strategy game fan (and FE fan) and I thought it was great. I loved how Line of sight is used. Learning how to position yourself before you end your turn so you can cover blind spots with overwatch attacks, using more mobile characters (Lion) to gain a bird's eye view of the map and see where enemies are moving etc. With perma-death not being a factor knowing your enemies movement range really isn't as important, knowing where they are is. Ambushes and spawn points are the main things that will kill you.

I was mostly worried about the gun camera controls but my worries were put to rest. The ABXY controls worked great for me and never really had a problem with accuracy (other than learning how each gun fires). I was definitely tempering my expectations with this until I could play it, and It was much much better than I expected. I definitely think this has a shot to be just as good if not better than FE: Awakening.



NibelsnarfNoob commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2015:

Monster Hunter 4U is already pre-ordered. Code Name: STEAM and Etrian Mystery Dungeon in March are the others I'm looking forward too. Sucks they come out within 3 days of each other, and I know I won't have time to play both (especially since Monster Hunter is either the same month or a month before).



NibelsnarfNoob commented on Discontinued amiibo Figures Could Be Released ...:

Good to hear, as long as the cards are always available I can live with the limited releases for the figures. More for less is cool with me.

Only ones I wanted are Ike (probably never gonna happen since I can't pre-order it on amazon) and Zero Suit Samus.



NibelsnarfNoob commented on Rumour: Has Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem B...:

I can't say i'll be sad or disappointed if this is true, since we still haven't seen anything gameplay wise about this game. I love Atlus, but i've never played a SMT game, so I don't really know how that would go with Fire Emblem.

Would we just get FE characters in a SMT style game?



NibelsnarfNoob commented on Single Player Campaign for Splatoon Detailed, ...:

YES! I really wanted to see more about Splatoon's single player campaign since it was announced. I really wanted a full single player mode for this, I hate shoot's without solo modes.

It looks even better than at E3 and I can't wait to see more of the customization options for characters. Splatoon is my top WiiU game for next year now (at least until SMT X Fire Emblem gets a release date).



NibelsnarfNoob commented on Feature: What We Want to See in the November N...:

Code Name: S.T.E.A.M and Monster Hunter 4U are my top 3DS games for next year, so I'd love some more info about release dates and how they are effected by the New 3DS. If the controls for Code Name: Steam move the gun movement to the c-stick, that pretty much sells me on a New 3DS.

And any Fire Emblem news is welcome. I really need to see how SMT x FE plays, is it SMT with Fire Emblem characters or FE with SMT characters. Hopefully it's an interesting combo of the two styles of gameplay.



NibelsnarfNoob commented on Poll: Tell Us What You Think of the New Ninten...:

Not getting one until after Xenoblade comes out and they confirm more exclusives. Otherwise I'd have no reason to upgrade. I've always played MH3U without the second circle pad so that doesn't matter. If it makes a huge difference in Code Name STEAM, then I might think about it sooner.

I like the regular model a little more because of the face plates, but I'd get an XL if there are some special edition ones like the MH4 one coming out in Japan.



NibelsnarfNoob commented on Nintendo UK Outlines September's Dazzling Zeld...:

@Peach64 All 3 games you named were 3rd party games that basically are on sale after the first month. Bioshock is a year old, Ground Zeroes is a paid demo that never should have cost as much as it did in the first place, and Wolfenstein came out in May this year (at least in the US, if it came out later in EU I apologize lol) so that isn't surprising.

I've only had a WiiU for a month now so I can't say how sales on the eshop for it are, but 3rd Party on the 3DS eshop is similar. Atlus games are on sale for half off every 2-3 weeks, and we just had that sale on Capcom games for both 3DS and WiiU.



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

Exactly why I didn't think Chrom or Lucina (still kinda disappointed that shes a clone) would be in the game. Robin i'm happy with because they added a magic user.
If they were gonna add another FE it needed to one that wasn't a sword user. I think Hector (Thunder Axe), Shinon (Marksman), or maybe Lyon would have been better FE choices over a clone.



NibelsnarfNoob commented on Guild Quests Could Change the Way We Enjoy Mon...:

@Einherjar Maybe thats true, but it probably has more to do with the fact that in Japan (where it sells the most) handheld gaming is more popular and the 3DS has a larger install base.

Either way I'm glad, since we barely got this one. MH4 came out last September with no western release date, and if not for MH3U selling as well as it did I doubt we would have got MH4U as soon as we are. We got MH3U a year and a half after the Japanese release, and we are getting MH4U in what looks like 6 months (hopefully less) after the Japanese release.



NibelsnarfNoob commented on New Japanese Law Bans Child Abuse Images, Yet ...:

@JellySplat Are you talking about a specific manga/anime or just generalizing?

and @PvtOttoBot pervy old dudes are a trope and are for jokes. Before DBZ became a serious fight manga it was mostly comedy in Dragon Ball were the whole master Roshi thing started (and he appears far less in DBZ because its less comedy focused), same goes for Jiraiya that part of his personality is just based on that trope.



NibelsnarfNoob commented on Guide: The Biggest Wii U and 3DS Retail Games ...:

I'm still hoping we will hear about Azure Striker Gunvolt soon. It has a Summer 2014 release and I hope there is an update on that soon.

Definitely getting Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 1+2 ,Smash 4 and Alpha Sapphire. Sonic Boom (3DS) and Watch Dogs I'm gonna wait for reviews of from multiple sites before I consider buying them. Captain Toad is just a wait on price point (though I'm still gonna consider if it's $60 as long as the Reviews are good).
