SepticLemon commented on Metroid Prime: Hunters Arrives on Wii U Virtua...:

Hmm... I was super excited for Prime Hunters back in the day. I played that demo card like no-one's business. But when I got the game, played it and beat it. I realised that it wasn't that great at all. The bosses were recycled, the bounty were only Mid-bosses, and the online was messed up from the beginning. It was just a race to get that sniper rifle and camp on top of a spawning health orb!

People tell me how much they hate Other M. For me, I really didn't like Hunters...



SepticLemon commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X Wii U Bundle and Specia...:

You know what? I would've preferred it if they included the original Xenoblade Chronicles in there like what they did with the Bayonetta 1&2 pack. Granted, Bayonetta 1 was on HD consoles, but I would still like a remake to XC.



SepticLemon commented on Yo-Kai Watch Busters and 3DS Continue to Rule ...:


Is that the Stay Puft Marshmallow man in the picture!?

Who 're gonna call...

...Yokai watch... That isn't nearly as catchy... But I hope Yokai Busters has PK Meters and proton packs...

...Remember kids, don't cross the streams!



SepticLemon commented on Weirdness: In Some Parallel Dimension, This Ni...:

@LinkSword It actually says 500 GB. But for RAM it reads as 8 GiB.

This is the wonderful world of Marketing Vs. Computer Scientists. A Megabyte to a Marketer is 1000 Bytes, but seeing as there's no absolute binary number for 1000, a real megabyte is actually 1024 bytes. Wikipedia tried to solve this issue by introducing something called "Megibytes, and GibiBytes" as true binary numbers. Personally I just wish that we taught people how to count in binary, it really isn't terribly hard, but I guess that Decimals win.

Anyway, getting away from that tangent, it makes sense to read RAM in GibiBytes and Hard drive space in Gigabytes as RAM is always in units of 1024, whilst Hard drive space is typically in units of 1000.



SepticLemon commented on Weirdness: In Some Parallel Dimension, This Ni...:

Hmm... Interesting concept, but it's very fake...

For one, it starts with a title card that's in Japanese, and then moves over to English for the rest of the video. The controller on the other head is totally a Photoshop; from a design point of view, you really shouldn't have a power button placed so near an analogue stick like that. The NFC pad itself is a little too close to the start and select buttons, you need to think that the base for Amiibos need to touch the surface, rather the Amiibo would end up touching the buttons than the NFC pad.

To be honest, it's a nice concept, but it's really just a home-made flash animation that was then filmed with a phone with the lights out and Shigeru and onlookers put in as sound files.

As for whatever NX will be; this, Cross, system sounds about what I think the NX will be. It'll be backward compatible with the WiiU games, feature a streaming functions for the 3DS, and offer new games to support whatever hardware is in the system. What I would like to see is not only streaming over Mobile devices, but to have NX games stream over to the 3DS just like the PSVita with the PS4.



SepticLemon commented on Nintendo Download: 16th April (Europe):

I noticed that the WiiU version of Pandora's Tower allows you to play the game with the GamePad. But I still can't play my disc version of Last Story and XenoBlade with the GamePad yet. When will Nintendo update this?



SepticLemon commented on Nintendo Download: 18th October 2012 (North Am...:

Nice... You yanks get Gradius on the Virtual Console 3DS. I've been putting off buying it on the Wii Virtual console. But a portable version of it sounds a lot more tempting. Shame we got Mega Man 1, I have 3 versions of it already...



SepticLemon commented on Major Retailers List 3DS XL at £179.99:

Wait, what? No charger with it!? I mean come on! What if the 3DS-XL is someone's first DS? I guess it's a better chance for retailers to sell you the charger to go with it rather than bundling it in the box. Multi-selling... Come on Nintendo, I know you like to think that everyone has a DS now, but that's like saying there's 6 billion DSi/3DS units out there... Hmm... Don't know what to say to be honest. I wasn't planning on getting one anyway, but this really puts me off.



SepticLemon commented on Rumour: Tomodachi Collection 3DS Coming to the...:

For those who were a little confused by the video. The game itself is pretty much a Mii version of the Sims, where you use street pass to send your Mii into other people's games, you have an apartment where you can see the Miis live out their lives. I believe there's 2 or 3 of these games in Japan already for the DS. The video above is a little obscure especially if you don't know much about Japanese pop culture, but the Miis in the video are based on a pair of comedians that were once voted Japan's most ugliest celebrities, and Nintendo made a spoof of these two having a relationship and a child! lol God knows what the child looks like! In the latest game it was possible for Miis to have relationships, get married and have kids, if you play the Sims it's a common affair, but considering it's you and a random Mii you picked up through Street pass.... It's a bit dodgy in my opinion, lol!



SepticLemon commented on R-Type Being Removed from Virtual Console:

Thing is, as much as we cry about this game being taken off, we have the TurboGrafx version, which is closer to the arcade game than the Master System version. Sure it's 300 points more, but it's a better version. The fact that we got both these versions is amazing. Remember this isn't the first time that a game has been removed from the Wii Shop Channel; since the release of the arcade version of Ghosts and Goblins, the NES version was taken off, why? simple, we got an arcade version that's better than the port, so why have the port? As much as RType is a great game, stick with the better version guys.



SepticLemon commented on Investors Urge Nintendo to Develop for Smartph...:

@SuperSushiLax Granted, but do you REALLY see Nintendo making games for other hardware though? I mean sure they did for the Atari 2600 and the PC, but they weren't that great, Nintendo games are made for Nintendo machines. At this point Nintendo needs to get their phone out there, as I wrote above, Nintendo has been pondering the concept of a phone for a while now, and in this day and age it's a no brainer to release it now, and have their dream of "Three Piers". Nintendo could make an Xperia Play style phone, where you can download both Nintendo style games, and maybe even include the Android Store in there too with exclusive apps for the Nintendo Phone. It's just a case if Nintendo will actually do it or not.



SepticLemon commented on Investors Urge Nintendo to Develop for Smartph...:

Here's the thing, Nintendo is going to flat out refuse to make games for other systems apart from their own. Simple as that, and no denying it either. If Nintendo was to follow this, they'd have to make their own smart phone, and there have been rumours about a Nintendo Phone since 1999 from what I remember reading in magazines. The Only issue that Nintendo has with making a phone is who to rely when it comes to the actual phone service, after all it's going to be different for each country, and if they make a blunder like Sony's E3 press conference when they announced that the 3G PSVita will be on AT&T, Nintendo will have more problems than what they have now. To be honest as much as smart phones have been popular recently in the Games Industry, apart from Angry Birds, nothing else stand outs or makes itself look good compared to actual Home and Portable console games. At least SquareEnix have tried to port their FinalFantasy franchise onto the iPhone, which is a step, but the biggest issue with smart phones now are the limited physical buttons. Apple would make a HUGE....... killing if they only release an iPhone case that sports real controller buttons on it, and as long as it's standardised in the SDK for every programmer to use, you'll see more "Console-esqe" games on the iPhone. However, since Apple has yet to even make anything like this, and rather let a 3rd party make a huge arcade dock for the iPad, it's a sign that even though Smart Phones are getting games in, it's not serious enough. Without that tactile feel of buttons, touch screen controls to emulate a d-pad and buttons are terrible. Now, of course this means you need to build games in a different way, Angry Birds being one of these, that show how Touch-only controls work on an input limited device; but even then, I would like to see console-esqe games on Smart Phones. And this is where I make the circle here, if Nintendo isn't so stubborn, and trust me, we know how stubborn Nintendo can be, they can resolve themselves and flip flop, remember the GameCube? Exactly! For all I care Nintendo could release their own smart phone, with added physical buttons, the best of both worlds, a touch screen symbolic ogf the DS and the iPhone, and phyisical buttons like DS, GameBoy and pretty much any home TV Console. At this point it's just a waiting game and see what Nintendo will do, but in their hours of struggle, anything can happen, heck maybe the 3DS-Lite comes out and blows everyone away, heh.



SepticLemon commented on Super Mario All-Stars 25th Anniversary is 50Hz...:

Thumbs down!

I was tempted to get this, but the more I look into it the worse it gets! I honestly thought there was a DVD and a music CD, turns out there's only a music CD and a small book. At least the Japanese and American version will have progressive scan mode, but the European version is 50hz only!?

Sorry, thumbs down, Nintendo, you're screwing this up!



SepticLemon commented on Review: Flametail (DSiWare):

I'll admit, out of the games in Maboshi, Square/FlameTail is the best, and it's awesome that they've released this as DSiWare. 500 points though is a wee... bit steep concidering that I can practically port all three Maboshi games onto the DS... long as I don't turn off the system. I'm not saying it's a bad game, but at 500 points, it a little crazy whilst at the moment for the same ammount of money I can download Worms 2 Armageddon for the XBox 360, sure it's not a portable, I'm contrasting here...

I'll see what they'll do for the UK/Euro release for the game, maybe they'll reduce the price crosses fingers



SepticLemon commented on Review: A Topsy Turvy Life: The Turvys Strike ...:

Shame, I was looking forward to this...

I love Shumps, so the concept to this being that I'm the bad guys holding the player back sounds really cool. It's a shame that Corbie didn't like it so much. I love Star Force and Star Soldier, that with Star Force as a cameo in the game just sounds like a Winner to me... Maybe not...



SepticLemon commented on Mario Jumps Over Flag, Ends Arguments Forever:

I've done this once in the past, can't even remember how I did it. But what happens after...?

The Last part of the level loops around, with the steps first, then another flag and castle. There wasn't anything special about it.
