Nintendood commented on Reminder: New StreetPass DLC Games Offer a 'Th...:

@Scary_Old_Lady That was almost always true in the past, with the US getting earlier release dates, but I have seen quite a few the other way around lately. For example, some of the DLC for Hyrule Warriors came out 2 weeks earlier in Europe. When games are released even later than that in Europe, it's often because they're adding the extra languages, but releasing something later in NA means it's something very minor. I think if there's an issue that'll delay either release by a couple weeks or less, they should just hold off on the other one too and release them both on the same day. Considering how long it takes to make a quality game, they should be able to manage enough patience for that.



Nintendood commented on Review: Chariot (Wii U eShop):

The button layout makes no sense at all! Is there any option to change it? The B button is the easiest one to hit by accident, so it seems like the worst choice for reset (although you did say to hold the button, so that's a little better).

For me, thanks to the SNES controller which uses the same ABXY layout, the only button that ever feels like the right one for jumping is B.



Nintendood commented on International StreetPass Week Details Confirme...:

I lost my original Reggie Mii for some reason, but I didn't care for it anyway. I was upset when I lost my Honest Abe (Lincoln) Mii though, cuz that one was actually cool! I decided to try that exploit that I read about on here, but didn't realize he wasn't being sent out anymore!



Nintendood commented on Crunchyroll Pre-Order Bundle for Etrian Myster...:

@AVahne I got the same. The DS game was AniMates! which earned a whopping 2/10 from IGN and NintendoWorldReport. Even the box art fails to make it look remotely appealing... At least it was free, and they knew that it'd technically be playable for anyone playing Etrian Mystery Dungeon.



Nintendood commented on Review: Tetris Ultimate (3DS):

Despite the overly positive review, this looks disappointing. Nothing would be better than a new version of Tetrisphere in full 3D! That one still beats any other Tetris game in my opinion - though I still own and love the original on NES, Tetris Blast (GB), Tetris Plus (GB), Tetris & Dr. Mario (SNES), Tetris DX (GBC), The New Tetris (N64), 3-D Tetris (Virtual Boy), Tetris DS, Party Deluxe on Wii, and Axis.



Nintendood commented on Review: Tri-Strip (Wii U eShop):

The original Game Boy wasn't nearly THAT green! It also didn't look so faded, with much better contrast. Why make it look worse than the original games did?

Also, why would you release it on the Wii U instead of a handheld (3DS) like the original Game Boy? Even if only one screen's used, that would make a lot more sense.



Nintendood commented on Gallery: Wii U Owners React to Screenshot Remo...:

I can't believe they still haven't made a Miiverse community for Shin Megami Tensei IV! I'm sure they'd want to disable screenshots for it, considering the phallic designs of some demons and the one with a totally exposed erection, but it seems like way too popular of a game to not have a community!



Nintendood commented on Review: Story of Seasons (3DS):

@Dooyoo That really bothers me too, when there's no way to preview a game's use of 3D. It's been a few years and it's still rare for the eShop to properly display 3D screenshots of games!



Nintendood commented on Uniracers:

@motang I know I'm about four years late answering your question, but I'm sure the reason it won't be released on VC is the same reason Nintendo was forced to stop production of the game back then, a while after it was released. In 1987, a 4-minute short film called "Red's Dream" starring an autonomous computer-generated unicycle was added to the end of a Disney movie. This later allowed Pixar to sue DMA Design for copyright infringement, halting this game's production...



Nintendood commented on Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams GamePad Sound Pa...:

I already own the game from when I got it on sale, but haven't played it for more than a few minutes. It looked great, but I was disappointed that the TV-only sound hadn't been patched yet. Until reading this, I wondered if it would ever actually happen...



Nintendood commented on Review: Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails (Wi...:

I don't get why so many people think that a 7 is a low score. The way see it, and the way the scores usually are on this site, 6 is an average score. Games that get a 6 are still worthy of a purchase when it's something that interests me/you personally. Anything above a 6 should at least be given a closer look by everyone, until they know enough to make an informed decision!

By the way, has any patch been made for this game?



Nintendood commented on Review: Alien On The Run (3DS eShop):

Based on the demo, I don't think this game is nearly fun enough to ignore the fact that G-Style has completely overlooked implementing the 3D effect AGAIN... I put up with it for Crazy Construction, but only because I think that's a much more enjoyable game.



Nintendood commented on Review: Mario Super Sluggers (Wii):

Right, it would make more sense to wait until a reviewer who doesn't dislike the sport has time to review the game. Also, the reviewer seems to be unaware that this is just a slightly upgraded version of the GameCube game Mario Superstar Baseball.



Nintendood commented on Review: Tappingo (3DS eShop):

I like how the trailer is updated for the sale (5/1-5/15), but it still says
"Over a 100 puzzles to solve!"
(cuz that's read - over a one hundred puzzles...)
@Kitsune_Rei I haven't played it yet, but it seems you're the only one that noticed (and mentioned) that you could finish puzzles with pieces in the wrong place. Did you figure out why it does that or how to prevent it?



Nintendood commented on Review: Kung Fu Rabbit (3DS eShop):

That's why I really wish the screenshots were viewable in 3D for ALL of the 3DS games that utilize the 3D effect (like 95% of the 3DS eShop games). I don't understand why it's been years and still only a minority of the games properly display their screenshots in 3D!

Although that doesn't really apply to this game (since it's all 2D), if they simply fixed the three screenshots in each games' descriptions to look 3D like they do in the actual game - people would know, by the lack of 3D in the screenshots, when a game like this or Crazy Construction disregards the 3D capabilities entirely. How the games look in 3D and how well it's implemented is important to lots of people, and can definitely affect their decision on whether or not to make a purchase - especially with the higher-priced games.



Nintendood commented on Review: EDGE (3DS eShop):

@C-Olimar You thought the 3D was atrocious? That's the opposite of what he said in this review... Can you explain what you think is so bad about it?

And does anyone else care to comment on the 3D effects?



Nintendood commented on Review: Crazy Construction (3DS eShop):

@StephenKelly180 I just bought this game and to my surprise, it has NO 3D effects! I would think that you'd at least mention it in the review (unless I missed it somehow), considering how rare that is for a 3DS eShop game. I'm also surprised that no one has mentioned it in the comments...

As far as I know, Fractured Soul is the only other eShop game that scored as highly as this one and didn't utilize the 3D at all (except for Bomb Monkey and Fluidity: Spin Cycle, but those require you to turn the 3DS so the 3D wouldn't work right anyway). Plenty of people pointed out the lack of 3D in the comments on the Fractured Soul review, and unlike the title graphic for that game (on the upper screen when the game's icon is selected on the bottom), the one for Crazy Construction is in full 3D with the four characters rotating under the title!

I was a little worried when I saw that the demo had no 3D, but then I figured it was like all the screenshots and videos on the eShop that don't show up in 3D - even though the games themselves are entirely. What's up with that, anyway? Some games get it right, but so many of them don't. I can understand with the videos, but how hard would it be to fix the three screenshots in the 3DS games' descriptions to look 3D like they do in the actual game?



Nintendood commented on Review: Shantae (3DS eShop):

@WinterWarm Of course Risky's Revenge has better graphics! It came out 8 years after the GBC game! That certainly doesn't make it the better game - and very few people prefer it to the original.



Nintendood commented on Review: Bakuretsu Muteki Bangaioh (Nintendo 64):

@Damo Have you also played Bangai-O Spirits (DS)? If so, can you answer my question in the previous post? I've been waiting almost four months, but nobody's replied! It's crazy how many reviews on this site get a ton of comments posted in the first few days, and then NEVER again!



Nintendood commented on Review: Shantae (3DS eShop):

@WinterWarm It is pretty silly to give this game an 8 when Risky's Revenge got a 10... although that review was written by a more reliable reviewer. This reviewer, Mike Mason, gave Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion a 4/10, which is really unreasonable for a quality game - even if it's not your cup of tea.



Nintendood commented on Shantae: Half-Genie Hero:

I've loved Shantae since she got her start on GBC, and I'm a paid backer of this game, but the hair-whipping attack originated with Kabuki Quantum Fighter for the NES!



Nintendood commented on The Nebula of NES Games Is An Infographic Done...:

They've corrected it now, on their site, by adding the 'Super' to Mario Bros.

I like the design and everything, but it's unfortunate that the screenshots aren't from the original genuine carts in an actual NES. I'm basing my judgement on the extra smooth rendering, lack of sharp edges, and totally non-pixelated look.



Nintendood commented on Review: Star Wars Pinball (3DS eShop):

@BulbasaurusRex You would have to turn the 3D off if you turned the 3DS sideways because the 3D effect is achieved by sending separate images to your left and right eyes - which would instead be aimed upward and downward when you turn the 3DS sideways. Just turn it now while viewing something 3D, and you'll see how that wouldn't work.



Nintendood commented on Review: Vegas Stakes (Wii U eShop / Super Nint...:

@baba_944 I also like Hoyle Casino, for the Game Boy Color anyway. It helped that it was one of the GBC games that actually recorded your progress with a battery save.

As for Vegas Stakes, I prefer the Game Boy version (which also had battery save) played on a Super Game Boy... It had some of the coolest custom borders, which would change depending on which casino you visited.



Nintendood commented on Review: Bakuretsu Muteki Bangaioh (Nintendo 64):

In your opinion, is this game different enough from Bangai-O Spirits (DS) to feel like a separately unique experience? What I mean is, for example, the original Sin & Punishment (although I imported it years before its sequel) definitely is to me when compared to the Wii sequel, enough so to be worth the expense of importing the original now. Is this one?



Nintendood commented on Review: Super Pang (Super Nintendo):

I definitely prefer the Game Boy version from Hudson. I especially liked how it showed screens with the character in different poses between levels, and unique comments/tips each time it showed the map screen.



Nintendood commented on Review: Fester's Quest (NES):

What a horrible reviewer ~ I can see why he was only active on the site for about six months, three years ago. The score of 1 was clearly given out of spite.

This game, while not for the easily frustrated, deserves a 6 or 7/10.
