ouroborous commented on Rumour: Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. Demo To Be Distr...:

sadly gamestop does suck, many of the people who work there are either ignorant to the world of video games, or just plain jerks. the state of bonus items for pre-orders, and pre-orders in general is a total sham. personally i am convinced that it's the gamestop employees who are sucking up all the limited edition stuff and flogging it on ebay before anyone at all gets a crack at it. with limited supply these days on that kind of thing, you basically have to work at gamestop to get anything special from nintendo at all.

as for this game, i havent been interested in the least, but i would try the demo if i could get it. but i dont plan on going to great lengths through some crazy gimmick to get the code for it....



ouroborous commented on Lucky New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Gamers Jump ...:

the real shame is that people who really want the item end up having to pay black market prices to get it from people who are just flogging for profit. but on the other hand, if you really really want it and either missed the opportunity or have no other option, but have the cash to spare, you can get it in the end...



ouroborous commented on Platinum Games’ Producer Thanks Wii U Owners...:

loved both of the bayonetta games and thrilled that the wii u version contained the first one so that i had the chance to play it.
super annoyed that other countries always get the good stuff though, we didnt even get the angel book case in NA.



ouroborous commented on Renegade Kid’s 3DS Metroidvania Title Xeodri...:

this game was announced not that long ago and is already coming out? cool, but what happened to treasurenauts? this game kinda came out of nowhere and blew right past it. TN was announced ages ago... did it get cancelled or replaced by this or something?
don't get me wrong though, this game looks decent and ill be happy to check it out next week.



ouroborous commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:

it would most likely benefit them in the long run, getting more consoles out there right now is still the priority and everybody loves a price cut. but hopefully the amiibo line of toys will be the thing which drives the family demographic to finally cash in. but that will either work or not, still, a price cut could make it more enticing for parents this holiday season.



ouroborous commented on Poll: Buying Bayonetta 2 - eShop Convenience o...:

reserved mine ages ago so i had no problems. im sure its lack of supply if theres a problem for anyone because ever since the 3DS was released i have noticed that nintendo system games are not well stocked like the old days, especially at release. so i always reserve even if i am only casually interested. because otherwise it could be ages before there are more physical copies available these days.



ouroborous commented on Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty Wii U Delay Seems to b...:

uh, can you not download eshop games to an external drive just like retail games via the eshop? i mean the whole external drive thing is a pain, but at least its a way to make it all work....or you could have just bought the 32gb model to begin with, where did you think you would put downloads with only like 4g of available space?



ouroborous commented on Bayonetta 2 in North America Comes With a Rath...:

well i thought that it was already a done deal that NA was getting a 2-disc physical copy of the game. but at any rate, that's exactly what i want since my internet sucks and i dont wanna buy yet ANOTHER ext HD just to download a couple wii u games.



ouroborous commented on Weirdness: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS ...:

you mean because she can sorta kneel in super metroid?
whatev, in the original nes game you turn into a ball long before you get the varia suit, and it has nothing to do with balling up in any metroid game as far as i know. you either start with the ability or you get it straight away.



ouroborous commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate's Questionable Expo ...:

in fact they probably are releasing the 3DS version first because it will net them maximum $$ that way since everyone who has the game or passed on it will also get the console version when it comes out. whereas if they announce it now, a large portion of people might just wait.



ouroborous commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate's Questionable Expo ...:

they are just claiming that there will only be a 3DS version since it will be released first and they want it to sell well. it will, and then after it runs its course, they will almost certainly decide to port it to Wii U anyway in order to milk some more money for the franchise. there's no way it's not win-win for them to do so, no matter what they are saying right now. you'll see, it's just a marketing ploy.
so have faith and be patient. odds are we'll get both versions in the end.



ouroborous commented on Nintendo 64x64: Gauntlet Legends:

excellent game and one of the better ports at the time, the ps1 port was atrocious. the xbox and ps2 ports later on, titled dark legacy instead of legends were decent though. however, as far as home console versions, this was the one to have when gauntlet legends hit the scene.
great game, good times.



ouroborous commented on Nintendo 64x64: Buck Bumble:

despite crappy controls sometimes (most times?), this game was actually really fun if given a chance and a rare gem in the very very sparse n64 library. also, the theme song is great and very catchy.



ouroborous commented on North America is Getting the Limited Edition o...:

what? you can't even order this from the store? you seriously have to go there to buy it in person? well good luck to the 5 people who actually live anywhere near one of these stores. closest one to me is like 5-7 hrs away. screw that.



ouroborous commented on Review: Mega Man X3 (Wii U eShop / Super Ninte...:

wow, although what is said in the article isn't untrue, X3 is by far my favorite of the original 4 games in the series (since after that they are unplayably bland and horrible and entirely lifeless). honestly i would have given alot more credit to the game for what it does right. its another fun MMX romp with some great tunes and if you played it back when it was new, the randomness was never a problem, it was par for the course most of the time.



ouroborous commented on Reaction: Picking Apart The New Nintendo 3DS A...:

love the 3DS, if theres a newer and better version out there, i will buy it.... this will be my 4th 3DS system, lol.

regular cosmo black 3DS (traded in), XL blue (given to brother), XL Zelda Gold Edition (will keep or give to brother), and probably then the new metallic blue XL+ (for me!)



ouroborous commented on Review: Yoshi's New Island (3DS):

this game is by no means for "babies", levels are relatively easy to clear, yes, but if you want to get all of the stars/red coins/flowers, then good luck, they are hidden all over the place and you will find yourself frequently stumped as to where you even missed any of them. the game is definitely challenging enough to satisfy any fan of the original yoshi's island.

as for the platforming itself, its just what it should be really and entirely evocative of the original game.
theres arrow-bounce balls, question mark clouds, and lots of hidden ones too, vines that grow from seeds, hidden pass-through walls, egg-stealing mice, chomp rocks, kamek, lost baby countdown, spin buckets in castles that drop stuff, lots of new transformation mini-levels, lots of baddies from the original, as well as new ones, like the metal shy guy and giant shy guy, poochie is in there somewhere, and the boss fights are stunning looking, if a bit on the easy side (im lookin at you giant bean guy, world 1 boss).

the game is awesome, this review is just plain wrong.
seriously, if you liked the original, don't knock this one till you try it.
odds are, you'll love it too.



ouroborous commented on Review: Yoshi's New Island (3DS):

okay, so i was REALLY looking forward to yoshi's new island, then i read this review and got totally depressed about it. that's because this site has always been about 100% accurate in their reviews of upcoming games.
despite that, i decided to watch the extended trailer and keep an open mind.
ultimately i decided to give the game a chance.
and guess what?
granted it doesn't take the franchise to all-new heights but it is a totally solid follow-up to the original game in the series, which frankly, is all that i had ever wanted.
it looks great, sounds great, plays great, is fun, colourful, and not at all a crappy effort. watch the trailer and if it looks good to you, just go for it and disregard the low score on this site (sorry guys!).

i hated the one for DS, switching babies was a royal pain and the two screen levels weren't actually the best idea. i did have fun with yoshi story for N64, though it was a really weird entry in the series.
but all i ever wanted was basically this game. so all in all, i am glad that i bothered to give it a try. i have played through the first world and am very satisfied. i would really have been entirely wrong to have just passed on this game.
for once nlife, i have to disagree with you on the score.




ouroborous commented on Nicalis Boss Tyrone Rodriguez Thinks The Wii U...:

you fool!!!!! the gamepad is AWESOME and i use it exclusively to play all wii u and eshop games cause im too cheap to buy an HD tv. besides, i like 3ds better than anything else these days anyway and basically its a giant gameboy, win + win = win. and seriously, anything would have been better than those abyssmal wiimote controls, which killed an entire generation of nintendo games.



ouroborous commented on NES-Style Action Title Insanity's Blade Is Cut...:

yea doesnt really make me think NES, looks like a very old computer game maybe. at a glance i'd say it doesn't look very good and doesn't really interest me. however, i do like an oldschool romp now and again, so i guess we'll see how it turns out.



ouroborous commented on Review: Super C (Wii U eShop / NES):

its every bit as good as the original and i wouldn't argue if you wanted to say that it's even better.

if you're looking for recommendations, contra 3 for SNES was also good in it's own right and basically faithful to the original style. contra 4 for DS (many many years later) was also really really good, if a bit on the insanely impossible side.
additionally, i also enjoyed operation C for the original gameboy, though its a very pared down version for the most part.
hm, maybe contra 4 borrowed that sub fight from operation c? something to think aboot!
