Samuel-Flutter commented on Video: Remembering Bubsy The Bobcat, The 16-bi...:

I loved the original Bubsy! I went over to my grandparents and played it with them all the time. I would try to run through and beat the levels while they would try amd collect all of the yarn balls. But to say that the original was the best game of the series is an understatement. It went all downhill from there. And I'm talking about a Bubsy jump off the side of a mountain and you can't slow yourself down with your glide kinda downhill.

By if there was one thing Bubsy had going for it was the levels design. I especially loved the space and train/desert levels. But honestly looking back, there were far too many leaps of faiths in the game, or hidden enemies above your head. I can see why people hate it.

The Cloud bit shocked me, since I was expecting Minecraft. It was a huge surprise which literally got me out of my seat. I'm also looking forward to the Smash Direct in December. Only if I knew the date... I do have finals coming up after all.



Samuel-Flutter commented on Feature: Why We're Still Playing... Pokémon G...:

Honestly this is my least favorite Generation. Followed closely by 4. There's nothing inherently wrong with the game, but many of the Pokemon introduced were underwhelming. Also it always felt like the journey through the Johto region was short lived. I'm sure I liked it more when I was younger, but I'm just not a fan now.

Personally I have always found the Vanillite line to be an impossibility. I can understand something like Trubbish because it would suggest it evolved alongside humans in order to camouflage itself. (Granted it would be a fairly quick evolutionary stop gap, since plastic bags haven't been around that long) But to camouflage yourself as a species' dessert would be against evolutionary biology. That's like pigs trying to hide by diguising themselves as bacon. Both silly and delicious.

I'm not entirely sure if anyone has brought this up, but what about sales from uninformed consumers? If it was digital only console manufacturers would lose out on consumers who only see what is on the shelf. Sometimes some games are only bought just because a person can physically see it.



Samuel-Flutter commented on Review: Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer (...:

I'll probably wind up getting this game, since I can buy it with the amiibo scanner. It looks decent, and my wife will probably like it. It looks like a decent world builder game. I've always wanted a great town, but was never able to invest too much time in it.

Question though. Are you able to customize the environment? Like where the stream and waterfalls go and what not?



Samuel-Flutter commented on Talking Point: Tatsumi Kimishima Is A Safe Pai...:

I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do. Kimishima looks like he'll have a more Western approach. I just wonder who will do the Directs. He looks more serious than Iwata, but looks can be deceiving. So we'll just have to see. He looks like he could be a fun uncle if we could give him a chance.
