Raiko commented on SNES Inspired 'Super World Karts GP' Adds Wii ...:

Will this not face some legal challenge? Many of the tracks are slightly altered tracks from Super Mario Kart. The rings are ripped straight out of Sonic. I can't help but feel that this has borrowed a bit too heavily, rather than focused on original content.



Raiko commented on Chasing Aurora Receives Permanent Price Reduct...:

I really want to support these guys because they've given it there all on the eShop. It's just the demo was really off putting. It's not a badly made game, it just didn't capture my interest. There's not a lot to it, unfortunately.



Raiko commented on LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins Still I...:

I think the hate towards EA and yearly sports games comes down the incredible similarities between each iteration. Every year EA seems to boast a number of differences, and yet Fifa 08 plays a lot like Fifa 13. The yearly upgrades are less than most games get in terms of patching. Tiger Woods is another series that follows the same formula. The upgrades are so minimal, you could probably skip half a decades worth of games before justifying the £30 for a list of gameplay tweaks and kit updates.



Raiko commented on Dillon's Rolling Western: The Last Ranger Gets...:

@geonjaha Fallblox/Crashmo changed the formula enough to make it a worthy sequel. Rather than experimenting with routes up a pixelated image, you had to take a step back and figure out how to get the blocks of much simpler images to fall into place before acting. It's so much harder, too.



Raiko commented on Reggie Fils-Aime: Wii U Is "Much More Graphica...:

How has nobody commented on Reggie's Call of Duty comment? It's quite obvious that the game visually is no better than the 360 version, but it also doesn't run anywhere near as smoothly. Very much the opposite of what Reggie claims.

Maybe he was put on the spot there, but that's one cheeky little lie.



Raiko commented on Review: Rabbids Land (Wii U):

I like the characters, but the gameplay videos look more disappointing than the reviews themselves. This is Ubisoft and they love to rush out crap in time with a console launch. I think i'll pass on this one.



Raiko commented on Nintendo Download: 15th November 2012 (Europe):

@AhabSpampurse I managed to complete it without using save states a few years ago, but I achieved a great level of frustration. I don't ever want to see that game, or it's sequels ever again. It may have tight and slick control, but it's nothing more than a reflex-memory game and feels all to cheap to me.



Raiko commented on Review: Back To Nature (WiiWare):

It would be nice to hear what the developers think about their own work. Surely there are reasons other than pure laziness, being massively uninspired, etc... Surely no programmer or game designer would want to make something like this.



Raiko commented on Review: Gradius (3DS eShop / NES):

I'm envious. Both Xevious and Twinbee, in the 3D Classics Collection, have eased me into a genre I almost completely ignored as a kid. Hope this comes to Europe soon!



Raiko commented on Young Boy Thinks Gameboy Micro Is The Latest N...:

Reminds me of when I was younger. When you weren't following the hype of the most recent machines, and when I was no more impressed with the first Sonic the Hedgehog than I was Paperboy. At least he'll enjoy the games for what they are, rather than being distracted by the hype of the unreleased.



Raiko commented on 3DS System Update Locks Out a Lot of Flashcard...:

@SkywardLink98 Not true at all. I know tons of people who play something 'to see what it's like', complete it and then say 'good game, but not worth paying for', or 'i'll have to pick that one up at some point', but never do. Pirates are hypocrites. I know enough of them personally, as it's something a number of my friends have all done in the past.



Raiko commented on You'll Be Able To Play Your WiiWare and Virtua...:

I'll carry on purchasing from the VC then. My collection is mostly built up from the free points i've earned in the Stars catalogue, but I feel much safer making a purchase now, knowing I can transfer them across. :)



Raiko commented on Want to Know The Real Reason Star Fox Was Rena...:

Maybe its because I grew up with those titles, but I much prefer the names Starwing and Lylat Wars to Star Fox. Star Fox sounds more like a kids tv show, whereas the other two names sounded more like an adult sci-fi programme.



Raiko commented on Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles Helped to Save NES:

I remember those old SNES prices. I managed to pick up Street Fighter II Turbo from a neighbour for just £5. Happy days.

As for TMHT on the NES. I have no idea how I ever made it to the near-end of that game. I haven't come remotely close to matching that since adulthood.



Raiko commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd August 2012 (Europe):

Imagine there was something for you to download every week. You'd never have time to appreciate what you already had.

On a side note, Donkey Kong Jr is more than worth it if you're a high score chaser. I had an inter-forum competition going on over at Eurogamer when the ambassadors first got the game and it was great fun.
