Retro_on_theGo commented on Preview: We Take Aim at Splatoon to See if It ...:

@IceClimbers I understand wanting to get players used to the initial game before letting them get into a ranked mode, but why not just have it on disc and let you play it when you reach level 10 instead of this? If you end getting to level 10 kind of quickly or understand the gameplay well we're gonna have to still wait until the developers decided everyone's good enough. And what if the numbers aren't satisfactory like they hope? Do we have to wait longer to get the new modes? It's just purposely with holding content at launch. I'm probably overreacting but I think they could have executed this same idea in a better way.



Retro_on_theGo commented on Preview: We Take Aim at Splatoon to See if It ...:

"Due to the ranking system and overall more competitive feel to Ranked Battle, it will not be available at launch, rather the developers will be keeping a close eye on the number of players and their levels before releasing this mode so as not to put players at a disadvantage due to inexperience. We have been assured that this will only be a few weeks if the numbers are all satisfactory."

Are you effing kidding me?! I swear I hate Nintendo more and more every. Single. Day.



Retro_on_theGo commented on Review: Proun+ (3DS eShop):

I was tempted to pick this up off the 3D screenshots in the eShop alone. Solid review that really let's you know what to expect. I think I'll definitely get this if it goes on sale.



Retro_on_theGo commented on Freedom Planet Bringing Its Brand of Sonic-Sty...:

@Shinokami I never said it was good because of gameplay. I said "it's a good game though, I hear." As in despite my opinion of it, I've heard good things about it, so I don't deny the possibility it's a good game, but it's not one I'd have interest in either way as I don't like Sonic's general gameplay style.



Retro_on_theGo commented on Freedom Planet Bringing Its Brand of Sonic-Sty...:

@Extremist Actually, you got it backwards. I hate Sonic, so a game trying to emulate it's gameplay like this isn't appealing to me. But I know there's people that have been wanting a game like this since the train wreck Sonic Boom so I'm glad they'll get what they want soon.

@Tabris95 I can see that. Haven't played it so I guess I can't really judge how it plays. I just rewatched Johnny's review on this to refresh my memory and he does also mention Gunstar Heroes and some other Genisis games. Maybe I should actually give it a shot if it goes on sale cheap enough, I'm probably being too hard on it.



Retro_on_theGo commented on Freedom Planet Bringing Its Brand of Sonic-Sty...:

I first heard about this from Somecallmjohnny's review. I really dislike it. From what I've seen it looks like an exact Sonic copy and past, not a tribute or "inspired by", and the original stuff it does add in is uninspired or annoying. Not my type of game at all.

It's a good game though I hear so it's great wii u owners will finally get to try it.



Retro_on_theGo commented on Review: OlliOlli (Wii U eShop):

The game looks so fun. I don't mind the lack of exclusive Nintendo console content, the main game is amazing enough to warrant purchasing. I'm glad we finally get to play it since I don't have a PS3 or 4!



Retro_on_theGo commented on Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 Confirmed for 3DS:

Cool! Glad to hear people liked it. Hope the sequel as smoother animation as a lot of the moving sprites looked really rough to me. I still need to play the first one. Hopefully a big sale comes around soon with this announcement.



Retro_on_theGo commented on OlliOlli Arrives on Wii U and 3DS Next Week, C...:

Awesome!!! Can't wait I'm so excited to finally get to play this! Day one buy. Now if only Nintendo would include cross saves too. Baby steps but this step is one they need to be smacked in the face for not having if they're finally doing cross buys.



Retro_on_theGo commented on Interview: Nintendo's Damon Baker on the eShop...:

@Punished_Boss_84 Pokemon Shuffle isn't even a main series game, it's a spin-off. Game Freak has stated multiple times they don't want to hide Pokemon behind a pay wall. While you have many valid claims the micro transactions isn't one of them since it's like saying the Zelda CDi games affected the development of every following Zelda. The only DLC Pokemon games have are the event legends which Game Freak already gets heat for with the store tie in events, micro-transactions won't happen in main games.

Bank is annoying but Game Freak plans for it to be available for every following Pokemon game to the point where your future children will be able to use. Storing that massive amount of data and maintaining servers is not going to end up cheap. $5 for the entire year with a grace period for your pokemon to renew if you didn't take them out is fair.

Won't say the Pokemon franchise doesn't have a lot of other decisions to get easy money that can be criticized though.



Retro_on_theGo commented on Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Budoten is Fighting Its...:

With Arc System Works working on this km very excited. I was just arguing with someone that the SNES games of this series were great and he said the series was accepted as awful since it never got an entry again. HAH! TAKE THAT!
This HAS to get localized. I need it so bad.



Retro_on_theGo commented on Nintendo to Introduce Free Software With NES a...:

This sounds very interesting! Knowing Nintendo and from the sounds of it, this will be a major missed opportunity though. This implies it will be like the dumb 3 minute demos in Smash. That's a waste. It should have been the full entire VC games that the Amiibo unlocks with limited uses like the demo's, maybe 10 uses.

Also I think there's a mistake here: "Iwata-san has acknowledged that demand has often outstripped demand"



Retro_on_theGo commented on GBA Classics Sonic Advance And Mega Man & Bass...:

Two great Games! Very interested in playing both but MM&B will kind of suck with the screen zoom in despite being on a home console now.
Every one should check out Sonic Advance. That is the true Sonic 4. Not that piece of crap excuse Sega tried to salvage.



Retro_on_theGo commented on Nendoroid Kirby Stars at Wonder Festival Along...:

Oh so the Kirby is a nendo huh! I don't like nendoroids honestly but Kirby looms pretty different from their usually style and km a sucker for his series. I might just end up buying him. Oh man all this stuff reveal at wonfes looks so tempting. I don't have enough between all this and video games ;____;

@JellySplat Some of those came out awhile ago so there's no new ones, driving up the price since we're kind of at the mercy of preowned sellers. You can try hobby shops or comic, card, etc shops if there's any in your area. I went to a card shop once and was surprised to find they had toon link for $50! Kind of wish I got it but hopefully its still there.



Retro_on_theGo commented on Review: Mega Man Zero 2 (Wii U eShop / Game Bo...:

I feel this is actually the easiest game in the Mega Man Zero series. i'm surprised to see people saying it can get very hard, but maybe that's because I've beaten it so many times? I love this game. It's my favorite entry, it's just so much fun. Music is incredible, level designs are superb.
