Pahvi commented on Poll: Nintendo's Free-to-Play Experiments - Ar...:

I've paid some money for all three mentioned titles, with the majority to Badge Arcade. Pokemon Rumble World I stopped first as it wasn't an interesting game, Pokemon Shuffle I've given up in the past month or so, but I daily play the practice plays in Badge Arcade.



Pahvi commented on Hands On: Getting Pinned Down By Nintendo Badg...:

Agreed with Mijzelffan - there is no such guarantee. I got today no free plays from the practice game despite clearing the whole game once (the one with bowser clogging the funnel), but I did get two for having got enough practice badges.



Pahvi commented on Reaction: Nintendo's First Mobile App, Miitomo...:

I'm not personally interested in Miitomo, but I'm more interested in comparing Miis and the Sims. I've never played Streetpass games, but it's a possibility that Miis could become as widely recognized as Mario.

With Miis being currently tied closer to the "casual" end of Nintendo games like Wii Sports Club, Tomodachi Life etc., yeah - I can see the idea of the blue ocean.



Pahvi commented on Sonic The Hedgehog Titles Being Pulled From Th...:

Got them on at least two or three collections on PC, including two physical, so I don't have an issue with this... (unless those collections had old Starforce like Taito Legends and won't run on Win 7 or newer...)



Pahvi commented on Feature: The Making Of Eternal Darkness: Sanit...:

Got this in the early days of Wii, didn't play it all that far. I'm just not a big fan of the game type.

Presently, Nintendo has Project Zero, whenever they feel like releasing those games in the markets outside Japan.



Pahvi commented on Nintendo Download: 29th October (Europe):

@XyVoX - There is/was a physical edition with a bunch of stuff in Europe, but not in North America. The physical copies that won't be put up on eBay or similar have most likely already sold out pretty much everywhere, so there's only the eShop release for the rest. There are no other physical releases of PZ5 in Europe or North America.

The eShop release is set so that the first two chapters or so are free, at which point you can buy the rest of the game on eShop for the stated price.

Did this help at all?



Pahvi commented on ZaciSa's Last Stand is Getting a New Update Th...:

The drone control thing makes this sound like multiple players can take a more active stance in it rather than just relying on tower placement, a bit like in Sanctum, Orcs Must Die and Dungeon Defenders? I'll have to try if that's already possible in the current version.

The lack of 3rd/1st person viewpoint won't make this as much of a blast as it did with the aforementioned games, though.



Pahvi commented on Wii U Version of Secret Files: Tunguska Sneaks...:

@Nintendian The game that has Gold Edition on Steam and apparently the regular version on GOG? But I guess you're aware of them and rather just want redone graphics in the remake?

My "best point'n'click game I've ever played" title goes to either Syberia or The Longest Journey. I might have to give TLE a go at some point...



Pahvi commented on Nintendo Download: 15th October (Europe):

I like the approach Wicked Monsters Blast is taking here with turning a Wii title to a cheap eShop port - I don't know if I'll get it, but I'm waiting for the review nonetheless.



Pahvi commented on Nintendo Download: 1st October (Europe):

While I have every intention of getting 1001 Spikes, given that I don't have much time to play and a few other Wii U games in backlog in addition to Super Mario Maker, I'll see if there'll be a discount by the time I buy it.

Race the Sun I got on PC and thought it was a fun simple game.



Pahvi commented on This Is The Last Real Console Cycle, Proclaims...:

Kind of ties together with the interpretation of Nintendo I've seen somewhere: N makes games, it's just that they consider hardware part of the games. (My own extrapolation of that interpretation: making games on Nintendo's platforms wouldn't be too far from making games on Ubisoft's or EA's own hardware platforms, if they had those.)

@skywake TVs have had games for years now built-in (well, games like Snake and Tetris). What if the TVs contained the consoles themselves, say, they ran on Android?

Admittedly, present-day CoD and FIFA would be out of their capabilities for a good while.



Pahvi commented on Mario History: New Super Mario Bros. Wii - 2009:

I think I would've liked this more if it didn't involve shaking the sideways Wiimote. That was what killed DKCR for me, that was what killed NSMBWii for me, that is what I expect to kill Kirby's Adventure Wii for me.

I suppose I should give it another go, though.



Pahvi commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Wants to Produce Another Supe...:

No Galaxy 3, please. While I consider NSMBU the best of 2D Marios and Galaxy 1 the best 3D Mario, I'd rather have Nintendo try to invent new things with the main series Mario games rather than starting to iterate them like they did with Galaxy 2 and NSMB series.



Pahvi commented on Review: Zombie Defense (Wii U eShop):

A few notes...

1) Sentry guns have this beam that, when crossed by zombies, makes the gun shoot. If fast-forwarding the time, runners might get past the beam without the gun shooting at them.

2) The recruits occasionally end up moving away from their spots and that makes it unnecessarily more complicated to assign them back to their positions or move someone else next to them.



Pahvi commented on Review: Zombie Defense (Wii U eShop):

Wii U doesn't have much in the way of RTS games, so that alone is something. Looks like I've also been living my eyes closed, since I had thought Teyon was a rather lackluster dev (Heavy Fire -series), but looking at all their titles in NL's database, I suppose I ought to readjust my view on them.

I'm in.



Pahvi commented on Shovel Knight amiibo Confirms "Evolving" Relat...:

Well, even if some earlier amiibo unlocks could have been called "essential content" locked behind a physical dongle (but still could've been argued against), I see little room for arguing otherwise in this case.



Pahvi commented on FAST Racing NEO Developer Shin’en Multimedia...:

I recall reading that Wipeout was not so much of a big seller but a title that created an image of the console. A "mature" game. I don't know how well F-Zero series sold, though, so hopefully the former's sales wasn't indicative of the market share.

So, I hope there won't be excessively high expectations on the sales of FAST Racing Neo.



Pahvi commented on Future Of Trine Series In Doubt Following Nega...:

I supported their previous PC titles (Shadowgrounds, Shadowgrounds Survivor, Trine 1 and 2), but I expect to skip this, at least for now... because I already got too many games to play as it is.

At least they didn't go belly-up yet, so they still got some hope left.



Pahvi commented on Ubisoft Announces Just Dance: Disney Party 2 I...:

@Tobias95 Oh dear - I just looked through the track list on the first Just Dance Disney Party - the first one. It includes not only Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious but also Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo, The Muppet Show Theme and Under the Sea.

... I'm off to look for a copy of that game.



Pahvi commented on Nintendo Is Bringing Splatoon And More To The ...:

@Grumblevolcano I may have misunderstood your point, but doesn't 2015 have more upcoming Wii U releases, at least if you count Western releases for games that are already out in Japan. Xenoblade Chronicles X (I assume it hasn't been delayed?), Project Zero 5, Devil's Third and the odd 3rd-party titles (Just Dance, Rodea).



Pahvi commented on Ubisoft Announces Just Dance: Disney Party 2 I...:

I have never heard of the movies or TV series mentioned, but I suppose they could work well enough with children as the intended audience. I'm perfectly fine with this coming onto Wii and Wii U, even though I'm not going to pick this up.

@Tobias95 I wonder who has the soundtrack rights to, say, Mary Poppins? A Disney-produced movie and with many classic songs. Now that Disney owns the Star Wars franchise, I wouldn't be surprised by the eventual Just Dance Star Wars - there seems to be Star Wars anything nowadays.
