Olorin commented on Review: Go Vacation (Wii):

Odd, I've been hearing nothing but good things about this game. Most of the games apparently have an advanced controls option the second time you play them and exploring the island and looking for hidden treasures looks like a lot of fun.



Olorin commented on Nintendo Patents Touch Pad for Wii Remote:

It looks like it actually clips on at the top of the Wiimote and uses the Wiimote's intrared camera for the touch detection. Clever, but very impractical, so I doubt this will ever really be produced.



Olorin commented on First Impressions: Gnomz (WiiWare):

Looks like it would be very easy to lose track of which gnom you are with the tiny characters and seemingly lack of color-coding. Also a shame that it's not an 8 player game, even though there can be 8 onscreen characters.
Still looks like it could be fun, so I'll keep my eye on it.



Olorin commented on Super Smash Bros. Dices with Fan-Made Board Game:

Board games can be awesome, but this one seems way too much based on luck. It seems like the only choices you get to make are when to use items. I prefer a board game that requires strategic thinking instead of rolling some dice over and over.



Olorin commented on Review: Cosmo Fighters (DSiWare):

"The four characters you can choose from are your standard anime affair"
More like a western cartoon style that badly tries to copy an anime look.
It's a real shame that there's no character diversity as that would have made it far more interesting to me.



Olorin commented on Review: Professor Layton and the Unwound Futur...:

Nice! I just finished the first one a few days ago (loved it) and haven't gotten the second game yet, so I don't mind waiting for a pricedrop for the third game. I hate that we're not getting an English version here in the Netherlands though, so I'll have to import.



Olorin commented on Monsters Smash Robots in Monsteca Corral from ...:

Oh wow, they really need to hire some kind of graphics artist. That logo is absolutely horrible, and who thought it was a good idea to make the trailer dark and blurry? Maybe the gameplay is good, but that was a really bad trailer.



Olorin commented on Free Photo Dojo is Nintendo's Way of Saying It...:

It's hilarious when played with the right people, but I suppose it would be rather boring if you don't have anyone who wants to act foolish with you.
I'm glad I got it, even though it's not free here in Europe.



Olorin commented on Review: Monster Hunter 3 (Tri~) (Wii):

Too bad we don't get the demo here in Europe. From the videos I've watched on the Nintendo Channel, it looks like the text in the game is ridiculously tiny, which is always pretty annoying. I don't suppose there's an option to increase the font size for ingame text?



Olorin commented on Review: Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Calib...:

I won't be buying it if the gameplay is still the same as the SNES game. I'm a big strategy fan, but I found March of the Black Queen to be really boring. The main problem for me was the low amount of strategy and the lack of ingame explanations (I had tons of items with no idea what they did)
I played the last 10 levels or so by doing something else while the enemies just got themselves killed.

So does OB64 improve these things? Are there any item descriptions this time?
