Been gaming since I was 5. I play mostly games on Nintendo and Sony systems. I currently own 3DS, Wii, Wii U and PS3. Favorite developers include Nintendo, PlatinumGames, Naughty Dog, among others. I love games with soul and sense of humour.

I know this is an amazing week, and I kinda feel bad for complaining, but wasn't Tappingo 2 hitting today?

Getting Gunvolt, and I may get a second copy of SSFIV if the price is good. Too bad I lack an HD, or I would have gotten that MH discount.

I cannot vote since that poll is missing the options "I plan to get all three" and the one that I would have chosen "I plan to pick one of the other two, but not sure which one yet". I see having three consoles as way too expensive, specially when two of those are so similar.

In any case, Wii U will definitely be my primary console, with the other for third party games and the exclusives that appeal to me the most, hence the reason I haven't decided yet.

I plan to get it day 1, as I did with W101, but I did not know there was an Operation for it. That would have fit the latter as a glove, since its stages are called Operations. Thankfully Nintendo is including an enhanced port of the first one, so you get a lot of bang for your buck.



sinalefa commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer?:

I usually have a favorite for 2D and 3D. When both are put together, I will give the edge to 3D.

So Super Mario Galaxy 2 it is. So varied and creative, even after thinking that I saw it all in Galaxy 1. Plus I love that New Game Plus that instead of just making the same game harder actually changed its focus.

I disagree. Dedicated gamers would have a Wii U and something else to get the best out of both worlds, so they won't care about third party games not coming to Wii U.

Besides, you make it sound as if Nintendo won't release more games than the ones they have already announced.



sinalefa commented on Ubisoft Executive Talks Up Super Smash Bros. a...:

I find it funny that people are expecting MK8 to sell millions of Wii U in one month, when the franchise has always been a slow burn approach. 3DS did not improve overnight and with a single "killer app", so why should Wii U?

As for Just Dance, I will just pass.

I really need to support these guys with my money. I was wondering what happened to Kickbeat.

You always see big developers making excuses while the small studios are very supportive and enthusiastic, despite having it harder because of lower budgets. Way to go guys!

@Sean_Aaron @JamesCoote

I do agree that a part of the population should not be ignored. The other thing is that there are different kind or degrees of colour blindness, so shapes usually work the best. A game like Peggle put symbols on the hard to see pegs to distinguish them.

With that said, if a game is not colour blind friendly, there is a huge chance I won't even take the plunge, instead of taking the risk and see if maybe that particular game won't affect me. While seeing a colour blind mode will help us to feel included, thus encouraging a purchase because of goodwill.

I hope you can gather feedback from colour blind people (if I can help you in any way please let me know) to work the best solution.

Based on that video, Notch is cheating. He did not even pour the whole bucket over his head.

It would be loads of fun to see Reggie doing this. And he should nominate Peter Moore and Yves Guillemot for their unwavering support ;)

Never saw this comment till now, sorry.

For me the double jump failed to register sometimes, even with that (admittedly confusing) graphic. Returning to the game after the update, controls feel a lot more responsive now.

It seems based on feedback he changed the double jump to something more akin to Bike Rider, and it makes the game a lot more enjoyable. I don't regret the purchase anymore so kudos to CoderChild for that.



sinalefa commented on Road Redemption's Alpha Release Shows Off Roug...:

Not bad but still needs a lot of work. I hope there is more variety in the stages in the final product, including night driving. I also think cops should behave differently or have guns or tazers to make them harder to beat.



sinalefa commented on Feature: HD Remasters That Would Be Perfect fo...:

No Skyward Sword or Twilight Princess makes this a fail in my eyes ;)

But I go to Push Square to complain about so many ports on PS4, so it would be hypocritical to support them here. I do feel that the jump from SD to HD is bigger than the PS3 to PS4, though.

Yet I like how Nintendo is not filling their system with tons of remasters, partly for being the only current console with backwards compatibility.



sinalefa commented on Citizens of Earth Pushed Back to November, Pri...:

I will get this but I will play Earthbound first. I got it as my Plat reward this year, so it is just a matter of booting it up from my Wii U menu.

Also, I can get this and Shovel Knight (or Guacamelee) for the price of Steel Empire? Those guys are crazy.



sinalefa commented on Nintendo Download: 14th August (North America):


As with W101, I support the game almost as if I made it myself. I feel it is that good, unique, challenging, and bang for your buck. Just be warned that it can get tough in later stages, but that comes with the territory and the learning curve.

BTW, did you ever get Armillo, or are interested on it? I am currently playing Shovel Knight. There are tons of nice eShop games that help fill gaps in your calendar.

I said it in the previous article about this. That they had never heard of never burning bridges since they hold their old grudge against us Wii U owners. Turns out I was right about it. Guess their 20 year old resentment disappeared in a matter of days.

Sadly, it reminds me of Cult County asking 3DS owners to back it after being given the middle finger. I am giving my money to Hive Jump.
