RoomB31 commented on Interview: IRONFALL Invasion's Developers on B...:

Finally got to play the campaign demo today. My thought are relatively positive, I'm not Ironfall's target audience (or maybe I am, Ill get back to that in a second) being the shooter genre that it is, but I was able to get into the game quite quickly, learning the control basics, and the way to play this game so that I don't end up dead. The visuals are awesome, great in 3D, but 60fps in 2D so i left it mostly in2D, music was alright, but somewhat repetitive. Voice acting wasn't too terrible, character models were decent, although the female character wasn't well designed and she looks odd, (too much plastic surgery, and for some reason the developers felt that she didn't need to wear much body protection?!).

I will say that I think the game will benefit from the N3DS nub greatly, as I played it with the touch screen, and while it worked fine enough, if it ever gets more frantic then it just won't hold up. Multiplayer online isn't my thing, so if I do end up getting it, would be for campaign only. I highly recommend you give it a chance, even if shooters aren't your thing, because I think they've done a great job bringing this game to the 3DS.

Looks nice, I find a lot in indies going the vector/high contrast route, which is fine, its easy enough to create something beautiful while using less details. But I hope this isn't an increasing trend, soon I won't be able to differentiate them.



RoomB31 commented on Interview: IRONFALL Invasion's Developers on B...:

Sounds great, and I'm sure it looks great. I'm sure its completely unfair to compare a 3 person team to AAA games, but when people are competing for time, it matters, basically is this a fun game to play? is it worth my time? We'll soon see when it hits NA, looking forward to experiencing it.

I think Nintendo's content always has, and always will have a steady stream of sales, why knock the price of a game when its consistently selling even if those aren't giant numbers, the value is that the game is just as good now as it was when it came out, meaning there's little reason to wait on a Nintendo game because they keep their value. other publishers will cut the price of dead or dying games to give them one last hurrah at bulk sales, before it falls into oblivion.



RoomB31 commented on Former Sega of America CEO Talks Out on the Co...:

I think Nintendo should definitely test out the mobile market, as a marketing tool, basically he said what I've been saying all along. I still would be wary to what they release, and find something that brings people closer to their products rather then keep them on their phones.



RoomB31 commented on Yoshi’s Woolly World Rated By Australian Cla...:

looks adorkable, but not sure how "fun" it will be, Yoshi's Story on N64 was a bore, but most of the Yoshi's islands were great, although I've yet to play the 3DS version, the art style is strange in that one.



RoomB31 commented on Clive 'N' Wrench Aims to Bring Back Those Rare...:

I get that it wants to be N64 nostalgic, which can be a good thing, I also see that It wants to poke fun somewhat at the genre, but man does this game look bad, its more like a poor no-name branded soft drink, with too much sugar and not enough fizz!



RoomB31 commented on Feature: Five Nintendo 64 Games We'd Love to P...:

Tetrisphere, but understandably the tetris license is an issue. Episode 1: Racer would be even better than F-Zero, or any of the extreme-Gs. But again licensing issues. There are sooo many Rare games that I wish would be re-released, but alas.



RoomB31 commented on Rodea: The Sky Soldier Confirmed For Release I...:

We all knew this was coming, so that's great news, unfortunately I am extremely wary of this game, considering the turbulent development, and the fact that not much in the graphics department was upgraded for the Wii U.
I feel as though the game was almost done, and they figured they should release it and try and make some money back rather than bury it on a shelf.
Don't get me wrong this game looks interesting, and could be fun, but I remain extremely skeptical.

Moving forward, since this game is now official, can we get some official Fatal Frame news please, its been a long time coming, and I wish Nintendo would allow this one over.



RoomB31 commented on Video: Check Out Kirby's Adventure Wii on the ...:

I tend to agree with this guy, most back to basics kirby games are far less interesting, than the epic yarns, canvas curse's, mass attacks, at least from a gameplay element type of game. than being said Kirby's Triple Deluxe has got to be on of my favourite back to basics kirby, its generally more challenging than its counterparts, and the 3D foreground/ background, and push elements are a great addition.

This game looks fine, but doesn't make me go Ooooooh



RoomB31 commented on Reaction: Pokémon Shuffle Isn't Quite Microtr...:

I already have Battle Trozei, so not sure what would benefit me from even trying it, but I will anyways! I didn't buy into Steel Diver nor Rusty's baseball, although I did try them, and their free to play is a little more honest than Pokemon Shuffle, but I don't denounce Nintendo for doing any of this, they are simply testing unmarked territory to see if there is any value in these kinds of games. I'm not worried that Nintendo will ever really go down this path, and its clear by the fact they they are using sort of basic brands to test it out. Keep on testing Nintendo, but stop when we show you what you want to know.



RoomB31 commented on Interview: Nintendo's Damon Baker on the eShop...:


at best this is political Nintendo jargon that basically means nothing, 3rd parties don't want to produce for Wii U, we all know this to be true, Nintendo will never really admit to that. To be honest if Nintendo really wants those type of games on the Wii U, they're the ones who have to start the conversation, and most likely show the money to wheel in exclusives, because for now, they aren't coming willingly.



RoomB31 commented on Nintendo of America's Damon Baker Explains the...:

Honestly if NOA actually cared about broadening the market, they would have included charging cables in with the system. saving pennies and touting that the reason was not to confuse the new consumer is absurd and offensive.

the core market will always be loyal, but if you step on them too many times they will bite back, and hard.



RoomB31 commented on Hyrule Warriors 'Ganon Pack' DLC to Bring Fres...:

I'm glad the load times will be fixed, because damn it takes more than double the amount of time to get into a battle. The pack itself is basically what I expected. I'm worried tho since We usually play this game in co-op that Ganon on the battlefield as well as Player 2, that the frame rate will suffer.



RoomB31 commented on Card Format amiibo Confirmed to be Heading our...:

Meh, I mean part of the fun is the collecting, the hunt(even if it has become nearly impossible to find many of them), and the showcasing, just as much as they are actually useful in games (and growing), I'm uninterested in the cards, but I like the idea of offering something for those on a budget, or can't find the ones they want to use in game.



RoomB31 commented on Eiji Aonuma Explains That The Legend of Zelda ...:

I'm sure for some this will be the time to buy a Wii U, but I feel Xenoblade has more pull, reason being, the Zelda fans, are really Nintendo fans, and a good chunk probably bought the system for a number of other games, Xenoblade is farther reaching, to non Nintendo fans on other consoles. Will Xenoblade sell more than Zelda, probably not, but I think it will give it a run for its money.



RoomB31 commented on Video: Kadokawa Games Showcases Rodea The Sky ...:

I mean the concept seems solid, and I'd love to give it a go ahead, there's no doubt in my mind that the graphics were ported straight out of the Wii version, which means unless there is a compelling way to play on the Wii U, the 3DS version makes more sense. My main concern with this game is that in watching the video the areas seem sparse, that at moments you are just floating with no real goal, either not enough enemies or not enough things to collect. I'll give it a chance, even though the Wii U needs get all the help it can get, if the game sucks, it won't matter.



RoomB31 commented on Exclusive: Full Fat Is Bringing The Insanely P...:

a nice casual golf game, that reminds me of the oh so enjoyable monkey ball target, surely not the same, but reminiscent. I love my Mario Golf, which takes dedication and precision to finish a round of golf, whereas this game simplifies it into a few quick rounds of fun, and high scores.



RoomB31 commented on Video: Nintendo Aims to Wow North American Vie...:

The game looks fun, but there are two things wrong with it (even if I still end up getting it). 1) The game at 39.99USD is overpriced, and 2) i feel its a better fit for 3DS and wonder why Nintendo thought it would be the best choice for the wii U.



RoomB31 commented on Talking Point: Limitations on Stock and Advert...:

I think advertising is something they shouldn't be scaling back, granted single high cost ads on games that are already going to sell millions makes little sense, but advertising unique features, and advertising the console in different ways to different demographics makes more sense,
Wii fit u to one crowd,
VC to a broader crowd with the nostalgia factor
off tv play & party games to families,
Console exclusive games to the hardcore crowd etc...
& of course, how one advertises, through blogs/youtube/social media to catch a younger crowd, some form of Phone app that adds to your games you have or will buy. TV just doesn't cut it anymore for ads, So stop putting all your money into it.



RoomB31 commented on Dead Or Alive Producer Feels That A Cultural D...:

You know I'd believe this if it at least came from a female japanese game developer, or at least entertain the thought.

The objectification of women is not a western tradition, and therefore doesn't make it any more acceptable to Japanese women, the one thing they do is objectify men and women although i'm not convinced equally, where in the west they are afraid to explore that topic at all.
