Ralizah commented on Fantasy Life Offers Multiple Ways to Connect W...:

This looks awesome. It has the deep multiplayer component of something like New Leaf and the accessible RPG gameplay of Disney Magical World. This is pretty much the ideal 3DS game for my family, and I expect we'll be playing it for a long time if it has as much content as people have claimed it does.

Ralizah commented on The Console Wars Live On As Night Trap Remake ...:

Night Trap? Seriously? What would be the appeal of an FMV game in this day and age? I'll play the original if I'm feeling nostalgic. Which I'm not, because the original was awful, and was notable only for the buttons it pushed.

@PvtOttobot
If you want to pay $30 for a remastered Genesis schmup, knock yourself out. Maybe it's worth it to you. It's not worth $30 to me, especially when full retail shooters like Kokuga are available on the eshop for half that price.

As far as I'm concerned, they've priced themselves out of the market. I will buy it when their business sense overcomes their greed and they drop the title to a less outrageous price point.

The price will drop like a rock in a few months. Not enough people are going to buy it at this price point to make it profitable. I look forward to buying it when it is $15 or under.

Ralizah commented on Review: IQ Test (Wii U eShop):

Ouch, some of these comments are brutal. Definitely wasn't going to pick up the game without reading the reviews first, though. The title sounds like shovelware. Very personable developer, though, I must say.

Meh. Between Shinovi Versus on my Vita, Bayonetta 1 and 2 on my Wii U, and Super Smash Bros. for both 3DS and Wii U, I'm going to be set for action/fighting games for the foreseeable future. I don't really see a place on my shelf for this game anytime soon. Maybe during a slow period next year when prices have dropped a bit.

Ralizah commented on Video: The 10 Best Zelda Games As Selected By You:

I'm a little sad that Link Between Worlds is so low on this list. The puzzles are never too arcane, the open-world design makes it so that you don't have to do one specific thing in one specific spot on the map to advance the story and can instead explore the Kingdom of Hyrule at your own pace, and it makes PERFECT use of the system's 3D capabilities. It has some of the best game design I've ever seen in a video game. For me, it is A Link to the Past perfected.

Ralizah commented on PDP GameCube-Styled Wired Fight Pad For Wii U ...:

I LOVE the Peach design, but I already own a Classic Controller Pro. I need a Wii U Pro Controller for games that don't support the Classic Controller. Give me a Peach-themed Wii U Pro Controller and I'll buy it in an instant (assuming it is reasonably priced...)

But no, the weird analog sticks on the CC are no match for the buttery smooth motion found in a proper Gamecube pad, so this isn't a good alternative to the adapter.

I'm not really penalizing the last case. I mean, I love RftA, and that doesn't really relate to the larger plot either. I just didn't care for how episodic the whole game felt. It's not a bad game, by any stretch of the imagination, but I think the first and last game set a really high bar for the series that the second one just can't reach.

Ralizah commented on Ace Attorney Trilogy Will Boast Visual and Dia...:

@Lizuka Well, let's look at the cases piecemeal, and then as a whole. The first case has a really awful amnesia gimmick and an obnoxious villain. Of course, the first game has a VERY basic first case, but this one is even less fun to play, somehow. So: worst tutorial case in the series. The second case is decent and adds a number of elements to the series, but it is the only one that is relevant to the larger plot of the series. The third case is almost universally reviled. The fourth and final case, while pretty good, is, for me, the worst final case in the original trilogy. It's just an isolated incident that comes out of nowhere and has no larger bearing on the series. It does make for an interesting case, though, I will admit. So, for the shortest game in the series, it sure is lacking in consistency. Moreover, my biggest problem with it is that, unlike the first and third games, which gradually build up these big stories, the second game is very episodic. It's not entirely a waste: it introduces Pearl, Franziska, and fleshes out the situation with Maya's family. However, it feels like a prologue to Trials and Tribulations. That's not necessarily a bad thing, as it means the third game can just focus on being awesome, but it doesn't really have it's own identity.

Anyhow, those are my feelings on the situation.
