Sforzando commented on Gallery: These Artistic Recreations of Women C...:

Eh, this kind of thing is just pointless. If you want "realistic" or "practical" character designs, make your own characters.

Peach: this is pretty badass, and a well done picture. It shows a post-apocalyptic version of Peach with a huge bazooka. But it's only barely influenced by Peach's original design and personality.

Zero Suit Samus: The armor is pretty well-designed, and at least it knows what statement it's trying to make, unlike the Peach one: less sexy, more "practical." (No fun!)

Great Fairy: Not bad I guess, but doesn't really fit the style of Ocarina of Time. I do prefer it to the original, since those fairies are the most terrifying characters in the game. 0_0

Chun Li: No complaints about the new outfit. But that face is pretty ugly.



Sforzando commented on Monster Tale on Its Way to the 3DS eShop in a ...:

This game is so obscure it's an exception to Rule 34. (Don't ask how I know this.)

It's definitely a "mid-tier" game, though! It's far from perfect, but it has a lot of charm to it. Bought it a few months ago, but haven't beat it yet. Hope it's released for a reasonable price, it deserves to be more well known.



Sforzando commented on Opinion: Splatoon Is to Shooters what Mario Ka...:

@Ralek85 Oh, I definitely hope improvements are made in online. Smash has had huge improvements, but strange limitations still exist. For Glory should really include more than Final Destination. Customs should be an allowed in "With Anyone," even just as an option. So yeah, it won't be perfect, but I'm cautiously optimistic.



Sforzando commented on Copyright Owner of 'Trollface' Image Explains ...:

Ironic that the creator of the trollface is a copyright troll.

It's such a common and iconic part of internet culture. Why not just release it into the public domain??

EDIT: That said, Ninja Pig Man has made far more money than he deserves to from this mess.



Sforzando commented on Woah Dave! Getting Free Deluxe Update On 3DS, ...:

This game is so fun!

...Although I'm a little worried about the Deluxe update hurting the simplicity which made the game so unique. Makes a minimalist game, well, less minimal.

That said I can't wait to ride some UFOs and [censored] some [censored] up.

EDIT: Any word as to when the update will be available?



Sforzando commented on Review: Flap Flap (3DS eShop):

"one of the darkest eras of gaming" lmao

Flappy Bird is a quality game and there's nothing wrong with it. I'll stand by that. Flap Flap, on the other hand, smells like trash from a mile away.



Sforzando commented on Review: Flipnote Studio 3D (3DS eShop):


Moving around an SD card isn't that hard, is it? If you've got a New 3DS (XL), you don't even need to remove the card.

I don't mind the lack of an online community — Sudomemo still has us covered there, although you need to use Flipnote Studio DSi to access that. My biggest gripe is the gross-looking compression present in exported AVI's.

Exported AVI's actually ARE 3D, though. You just need to do some converting, and you can post them to YouTube as 3D videos, and even watch them in 3D on YouTube with your New 3DS (XL).

As for where to share your Flipnotes? I recommend the Flipnote Studio 3D subreddit:

Great review, NL. Keep up the good work.




Sforzando commented on Crash: Mind over Mutant:

@pntjr Naught Dog didn't sell Crash to Radical. Are you forgetting all the games that happened from 2002 to 2006?

Mind over Mutant and Crash of the Titans aren't awful games, just very different from the others in the series. Radical was working on a platforming-centered game called Crash Landed, but it was cancelled in 2010. Look that up before you criticize Radical too much.



Sforzando commented on Poll: Which Nintendo Franchises Should be Prod...:

Kirby: Right Back At Ya was one of my favorite shows as a kid. I loved all the characters. I wish Dedede's in-game personality was more like the show. Seeing more of Escargoon would be awesome. Meta Knight was badass, and Kabu was always ready to send the "WARP STAR." Great show/10.



Sforzando commented on Ocarina Of Time 3D Reportedly No Longer In Pro...:

I didn't know this was new, it has been kinda hard to find for a while. I mean look at Wii games like Kirby's Return to Dreamland, they've obviously been out of production for a while, but there was no article when that happened. Again, why is this news?



Sforzando commented on Review: Scarygirl Illustration Kit (3DS eShop):

Colors! 3D strangely lacks some things you would expect to be basic, such as resizing and repositioning layers or paintings. The original DS homebrew didn't even have multiple layers! But I do like Colors, it is definitely a solid tool.

I really like Inchworm too, but the DS hardware limits it a lot. An Inchworm 3D (or even a 2d-only Inchworm 3DS) would be quite awesome.

I wonder why Flat Black Films hasn't made an animation software for PC, come to think of it. Stuff like Flash and Toon Boom can be way too expensive, and have a lot of options most people never use. Put Inchworm's drawing and animation tools in a sleek PC application for $10, and you have a very decent option for beginning animators. Tl;dr, DSi animation software is better than any PC animation software that doesn't cost hundreds of dollars.

I think I ended up ranting, but anyway can't wait for FS3D. What article was I commenting on again?



Sforzando commented on Link’s Swimming is a Notable Change in The L...:


I really, really hate the blatantly obvious weak points in Zelda games. "Oh, I wonder if I'm supposed to hit the glowing, pulsating eye!" It's offensive, that's the only way of putting it.

The exception to this is probably Link Between Worlds, since that one is a lot more lighthearted and fast-paced, and not intended to be taken seriously. MM, on the other hand, is quite dark and serious and the eye weakspots make my stomach turn slightly.
