OptometristLime commented on Yooka-Laylee Double-Jumps Through Final Kickst...:

@rjejr You've been burned in the past so you have an increased sensitivity to release dates I get it. But carrying over those fears to a studio that has no track record is irrational; comparing it to Zelda is strange because of the grand scope of that game and the developer involved (delays are common with certain Nintendo franchises).



OptometristLime commented on Fire Emblem's Two Versions Will Offer Very Dif...:


Nintendo gamers are no different than any other demographic, in terms of wanting the maximum amount of entertainment on the dollar. I think you've gone to an extreme proving your point, which is unfortunate because it distracts heavily from any constructive criticism you might hope to levy.



OptometristLime commented on Review: Pazuru (3DS eShop):

A "better" reviewer would complete a game faster? I think that's patently false, not to mention the carefully explained gold star challenge (which extended the length of the game for the reviewer).

And I think affordability is a minor quibble too...



OptometristLime commented on Review: BOXBOY! (3DS eShop):

So many butt-hurt commentators, frankly I think we should expect more from our games. The reviewer is singling out this game, for being unable to impress on even a nostalgic level in their opinion.



OptometristLime commented on Video: The Minimum Percentages to KO with Jigg...:


I think you've answered your own question, this article is targeted towards a broad audience, with only passing value to the hardcore Smash fan. Surely your perusal of the Smash boards would make nearly any tip or strategy article seem trite.

As for Melee news, that is fairly niche compared to the wealth of coverage owed to Nintendo's current heavy hitters. I love Melee and its competitors are owed a great deal of respect, but Nintendo Life has plenty of information for gamers who enjoy brand new games.



OptometristLime commented on Video: You NEED To Play Metroid Prime Trilogy:


The Gamecube method of controls for these games is pretty archaic, and uncomfortable. I mean if you are a fan of analog aiming more power to you, but that means holding down the bumper for the full game session.

I feel that the wii pointer is implemented well, and provides for a more intuitive feel while playing. The lock-on system is still present of course, so there are no worries about the controls being too sensitive.



OptometristLime commented on Former President Of Silicon Knights Announces ...:

Err yes we should abide this man's persistent idiocy because there's an off chance he might someday create a game, that however great, will never reach the level of it's predecessor...?

How about we just let him fade into Eternal Darkness, eh heh.



OptometristLime commented on Pre-Orders Open For NES, Persona Q and Smash B...:

I really do like the NES interior design, unfortunately as various users have pointed out already the shell leaves much to be desired; looking suspiciously like a tacky decal. Yeah there's a coolness aspect to it, but overall it's a fail.

Now that Smash Bros. model on the other hand... :D



OptometristLime commented on From the Forum: To Buy or Not to Buy? SPIKEY W...:

I feel the developer's choice to weigh in on this discussion is simply misguided, not that he lacks the right to speak out and defend his product but just because it tends to inflame the issue. Especially when it really doesn't move the discussion forward, with fairly passe comments on market conditions etc.

Personally I take offense at the use of "you" throughout, as if to assign personal responsibility to each individual who reads the developer's reaction. I'm a Nintendo gamer, and a human being so I can appreciate low prices but I don't allow them to compromise the message I send with my purchases. Nor do I buy games based on their price point alone (hopefully no one does this).



OptometristLime commented on E3 2014: Devil's Third Confirmed As Wii U Excl...:


That trailer has a bottom in it, as well as some bad words. Be warned!

Sarcasm? The screen grab at the top of the article also has a bottom, and no where in the body of the article is a warning served about the cuss words. I will assume this oversight is due to e3 euphoria... ;)



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

Think some of the posters are missing the boat on the whole "art style" thing honestly, from what I can tell a lot of the flourish that I would associate with the Wind Waker is coming through in the animations. Just looking at stills or even the scenery I would agree, but this seems to be an attractive game in motion.



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

Haha! If this message was placed at the head of many a comments section, it might prepare me for what's to come. :P

"Wow! Look at all this total crap!" Awesome. I'm assuming you guys either meant for that or that is unfortunately well placed.



OptometristLime commented on Hyrule Warriors Confirmed for 14th August in J...:

@CaviarMeths you're the one who seems to be in a "bubble" of reality, there is nothing to support your claim of good sales numbers for this entry. Retailers slashed the price in reaction to flogging sales, and I'm certain they didn't order copies to replace the sold ones.

Heres a quotation I found hilarious (in reference to Sakomoto's involvement):

Responding to criticism that was raised on the game's story, Yosuke Hayashi explained in a September 2011 interview with G4 TV that it was "definitely the product of Mr. Sakamoto at Nintendo. We definitely worked with them on the project, but that was all him."



OptometristLime commented on Review: Metroid Fusion (Wii U eShop / Game Boy...:

@Uberchu Your example is ludicrous, the only audience of people interested in these GBA games are Nintendo fans. Most of those folks are savvy enough to tell in advance what kind of experience the Wii U is going to offer them...

Additionally, the Off-TV function is a pretty good substitute for a handheld. In fact you might see that for yourself if you weren't so pig-headed about it. :P



OptometristLime commented on Review: Super Dodge Ball (Wii U eShop / NES):


Oh I quite enjoyed the review portion, my comment wasn't meant to undermine your reviewing style. Final scores are too arbitrary though and invite comparison with other, dissimilar games.

The Super Dodge Ball: Advance game was pretty darn cool, beating elite teams and unlocking their players, or choosing an underrated squad for their unique throws. Sounds like I would get some mileage from the NES version as well. :$
