Sforzando commented on Battleminer:
Has anyone downloaded this yet? Any impressions?
Sforzando commented on Nintendo Download: 20th November (North America):
Embrace the Battleminer.... All hail Battleminer...
Jk jk, waiting for a review or two.
Sforzando commented on Nexis Games Defends UCraft's Multiplatform Mov...:
stop writing articles about uCraft pls
Sforzando commented on Wii U eShop Title Meme Run Seals Approval To R...:
This...this is beautiful.
Sforzando commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Update 1.0....:
The only thing I know of, is Rosalina's Luma takes longer to come back. I'll play around with Megam'n and Dedede to see if I can find any changes.
Sforzando commented on Cubic Ninja Sales Spike Following Announcement...:
Gateway will soon work on newest firmware too.
Hey, NL readers/admins, here's a question for you: Is it still piracy if you only get a Gateway for Flipnote Studio 3D? (Yes, eShop games work, and FS3D is out there.) I mean, it's a free app!
And yes, people are resorting to piracy to get FS3D. #SorryNintendo but this is on you.
Sforzando commented on Teyon Games Adds Text and Voice Chat to 3DS eS...:
What an offensive price, and what a puerile design. I'm not that desperate for a Swapnote replacement.
Sforzando commented on 3DS Homebrew Exploit Set to be Launched on 22n...:
@KingMike LOLExcept the Sky3DS has been out for about a week and there still hasn't been a system update.
@GhotiH This guy gets it. There is already 3DS piracy. See: Sky3DS and Gateway.
The comments here are always full of self-righteous people."Hacking is wrong and evil, so this news doesn't interest me because I don't support hacking!" Well, good for you? You're missing out on playing DVDs on your Wii, playing Project M, dumping your own DS carts onto one card, Moonshell media player for DS, DSCraft, Aperture Science DS, and countless other great homebrew.
@Yosher Those are placeholder icons for various applications, see Smealum's Twitter. They aren't actually Pokemon/Zelda.
Woo, Smealum! There was some great DS homebrew, here's hoping the 3DS scene will produce some great apps too.
(And this exploit has nothing to do with piracy.)
Sforzando commented on Little Mac Is Officially The Least Successful ...:
I have 3-4 replays of my Dedede vs noobish Little Macs. Here's my strategy:
Stand at the edge, inhale as he runs foolishly towards you, and then jump off and spit him out before floating back up to the ledge. And if you're up a stock, you can Dededecide. So trollish. So satisfying. Fricking Little Macs.

Sforzando commented on Free Sonic Boom 3DS Theme Now Available For Do...:
Seriously, there are no reviews for either game. What the heck, SEGA?
The Wii U version looks pretty glitchy, if only because the glitches are getting shared around, but are they really that bad/common? We would know, if there were any reviews! But there are no reviews, so all anybody knows about is the glitches.
The 3DS version...meh. I played the demo. It seems like it could be kinda fun, but I'm definitely not interested in seeing more. Maybe a 5/10 game.
(Although it's definitely worse than Lost World 3DS, and NL gave that a 5 for some reason?? I'd say Lost World 3DS was at least a 7.)
Sforzando commented on Review: Sonic Lost World (3DS):
This is quite a late comment, but yeah screw reviews. The demo was tons of fun, with great graphics/gameplay so the game is worth a try in my eyes.
Sforzando commented on Upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Pa...:
It would have been nice if you could export replays as videos, but its not the end of the world. If your phone has a decent camera it should look surprisingly good. (Place the phone on some books or something to help keep it steady.) That's all folks!
Sforzando commented on Battleminer is Bringing Its Crafty Presence to...:
@McGruber Well, it does have the advantage of only having to render low-res cubes...
The textures look pretty bad. As for the gameplay, there's not enough in the trailer to tell how good it is. Doesn't look terrible though.
Sforzando commented on The Man Behind Sega's Wonder Boy Series Hates ...:
I hate the controls in Super Mario World. I'm absolutely awful at that game.
Sforzando commented on Pikmin Short Movies Available to Buy Now on Wi...:
@MoonKnight7 Oh I've heard of Iwerks. I wouldn't call myself an expert but I know a little about Disney's history.
Sforzando commented on Nintendo Aiming To Create A Stronger Bond With...:
@Inkling @G0dlike @danjohnson141 @DonnaxNL @Captain_Gonru Windows phone h̶i̶p̶s̶t̶e̶r̶s̶ master race!
@MoonKnight7 TIL Disney couldn't draw. Huh
@manu0 @DiscoGentleman Of course I was exaggerating. Also, I want a Japanese 3DS but I'm not made of money.
"Yeah, just watch them for free on YouTube, Miyamoto doesn't deserve MY money!"
This is one of the biggest disappointments of my life. Nintendo had the opportunity right here to promote the worldwide release of FS3D by releasing it alongside these short films. And they totally blew it. When they mentioned the Pikmin films, my ears perked up. When they mentioned Flipnote Studio, I just about clapped my hands in excitement. And then the worst moment of the Direct:
(right after showing the Flipnote storyboards)
Miyamoto: "Speaking of..."
Me: "Flipnote Flipnote Flipnote Flipnote Flipnote"
Miyamoto: "Pikmin, we are releasing a Pikmin 3 Demo!"
Me: "You've got to be kidding me."
But yeah, I purchased the short films. They were pretty cool. The storyboards make me question Miyamoto's animation skills.
Sforzando commented on Kirby and the Rainbow Curse has Multi-Waddle-D...:
The chunky clay is an interesting aesthetic, but not bad at all.
Don't the multiplayer dudes kind of defeat the point of the game, i.e. not controlling the character directly? I feel like they would make the game a lot easier.
Sforzando commented on Feature: What We Want to See in the November N...:
You know what I'm going to say but I'll say it anyway:...what? No, not Flipnote. Rhythm Heaven 3DS! (Might be more likely than Flipnote at this point anyway)
Sforzando commented on Monster Tale:
Wait, NL didn't even review this? Weird.
Sforzando commented on Polychromatic Extravaganza de Blob Will Be Mak...:
I picked up de Blob 2 for cheap since I am a huge platformer fan. I played it only a few times, and was never impressed. The levels are huge, and I always reached the last checkpoint with nowhere enough time to finish the stage, so I would have to start clear back at the beginning. The controls were awkward, progression wasn't clear, and combat and gameplay were tediously repetitive. Pretty disappointing game actually.
Sforzando commented on Another Minecraft Clone, Cube Creator 3D Comin...:
Hmm, it looks a lot better than uCraft, Stone Shire, and Battleminer. Most promising one yet. Still scratching my head over "another one?" though.
Sforzando commented on Review: Woah Dave! (3DS eShop):
It's $5?? I'll wait for a sale. For $2 or would be a definite purchase but any more than that is insane for what it is.
Sforzando commented on I ♥ Virtual Console: Monster Party Is The Wa...:
Yo--you should discuss Fire N Ice, one of my favorite NES games. Fantastic puzzle game, 10/10.
Sforzando commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Introduces His Pikmin Short F...:
@IpwnedU123 Have heard this news already. Lucky for folks with Gateway cards. Personally it doesn't help me, since I don't have a 3DS on an old firmware, never planned on wanting to pirate a free app.
Sforzando commented on Nexis Games Launches Kickstarter For Minecraft...:
Huh, looks really bad.
And Minecraft clones aren't illegal, Microsoft can't sue.
Sforzando commented on Review: The Legend of Dark Witch (3DS eShop):
So, I guess add this to the list of little gems I should probably pick up. Maybe if it's on sale or I have some spare change. I love little bite sized games like this, but I love bigger games like Shantae and Shovel Knight better.
Sforzando commented on Feature: Ten Games That Are Perfect For Hallow...:
I'd like to play Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward! Or Shantae and the Pirate's Curse
Sforzando commented on Shovel Knight 3DS Theme Coming To Europe And A...:
Hope it comes to the US!
@ThomasBW84 Also, it's Sudomemo, not Sudamemo, just fyi. Thanks!!
@ThomasBW84 Thanks for the response, I really appreciate it. Maybe the Flipnote fans can raise some money for your airfare, haha. (We totally would though.) Anyway, sorry for ranting. You guys do a great job at NL, keep it up.
@ZenTurtle That is a pretty bad idea, since the crisp pixel drawings would look quite blurry when stretched out to the 3DS's resolution. But since the issues are with the online community, why not release it sans Gallery World?
Of course, at this point in time, these "issues" are nonexistent. But that would have been nice back in August of last year. It would have given Nintendo some motivation to get the online services ready.
@123akis It is completely disgraceful. I wish they would announce it as cancelled at this point. Own your shame. But no, it's like everybody has literally forgotten about it. I would argue that it is one of the most accessible animation tools in history.
Inchworm is definitely a cool program as well, but the lack of sound, and the inability to control on-device playback speed hurt its appeal quite a bit. Plus, it is terribly stretched out on 3DS systems. (my avatar was created in inchworm:)
@ThomasBW84 Damn it. I just spent 30 minutes no joke typing a comment, and then I lost it due to accidentally clicking something. Pretend these points are well-articulated because screw this.
-Miyamoto created these shorts in Flipnote Studio 3D to show to the external animation company.
-Flipnote Studio 3D was supposed to come out August 2013, that is past, and they have been acting like it never existed.
-Nintendo Life is at fault for not asking what happened to the app.
-If a Mario or Zelda game was released in Japan, then suddenly "delayed" and ignored everywhere else, Nintendo Life would cover that wouldn't they??
-Flipnote means SO MUCH to me and many others, due to its ease of use, community, and many other reasons.
-I am beyond angry about how it's been treated.
-Nintendo Life should do an article about Sudomemo.
-Sudomemo is a service run by a college student, which replaces Flipnote Hatena and can be accessed through the DSi Flipnote Studio. It has 2500 Facebook likes and over 10,000 users. Yes, over 10,000 people have connected their DSi's to this "new Hatena."
-Nintendo Life should do an article on Sudomemo.
Sforzando commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd October (North America):
Shawn Tay And The Pirate's Curse!! Character designs are so adorable.
Sforzando commented on Former Sega of America Marketing Director Divu...:
I never understood that Miles Prower was a pun. Probably because when I was into Sonic in third grade, I thought it was Miles Prowler. Even after reading the article, it took me forever to get the pun. Miles Per Hour. Such a terrible name.
Tails, on the other hand, is a good name for the character.
Or you know, Arms. http://oi52.tinypic.com/npkpw7.jpg
Sforzando commented on Ninja Battle Heroes:
Cool to hear good things about this. Maybe next time I have some spare change in my eShop account. (as if that will ever happen!)
Sforzando commented on Review: Shantae And The Pirate's Curse (3DS eS...:
Look at Jasmine and Ariel in Disney movies, and their bare midriffs. These are characters definitely aimed at kids, and you didn't have SJWs calling Disney misogynistic back then.
(Of course, they aren't quite as...jiggly...as Shantae.)
@CanisWolfred Another review said that character art is 3d-layered on the top screen, so I assume that's what they're referring to here. If you've used Colors! 3D...it's probably similar to that.
For some reason, it's the 2d games that make me wish i had a 3ds rather than a 2ds. SM3DL and Smash? I don't mind them in 2d at all. Shovel Knight and Shantae? I need the 3d pixels!!
Yeah, this game is sexy. But it's in a cute and charming way. It's in no way sexist, especially as Shantae was designed by Matt Bozon's wife. (Source: http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2013/09/wayforward_fought_many_many_battles_to_keep_shantae_as_a_lead_character)
It's fair to admit this bothers some people, which is what the review did. It's not fair to say that the art style is "problematic," and did none of that. (Although it did call it "unnecessary," which is technically true.)
