sinalefa commented on Review: Dot Arcade (Wii U eShop):

Got this yesterday. Interesting and made for high scores, like an Atari 2600 game. I may not play it a lot, but I dont regret the money spent. $5 is nothing anyway.



sinalefa commented on Review: Super Destronaut (Wii U eShop):

I saw this yesterday when downloading Dot Arcade, another retro game so simple it may have a hard time to keep you engaged for long. Guess it comes with the territory.



sinalefa commented on RCMADIAX Takes to Twitter to Outline New Strat...:

I feel that as an indie he should try to balance quality and profitability. Spikey Walls was for me his selling out statement and thus I stopped supporting him.

I doubt other shops will give him the exposure Nintendo gives in the front page, or by having sales all the time and always being in the price drop section, giving the impression that the games are on sale so often for lack of quality.



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

I always end up underplaying Mario Kart games so I hope Splatoon is not the same in that regard. Still getting it day 1.


I will always welcome a second Bowser, and the new one is more like his cartoony self as opposed to Smash's semirealistic look. The stance is nearly the same (and also the stance in the Club Nintendo old figurine) and I preordered it.

The bad thing is waiting for the package to come, as apparently Amazon UK does not give tracking info for international packages, so I will be in the dark until April 10th, their estimated delivery date.



sinalefa commented on Nintendo’s Free-To-Play Experiment Pokémon ...:

Haven't even bothered to download this after I read you are not even guaranteed to catch Pokemon and the percentage lowers the more you advance. So the game does not value neither your money nor your time.

And I have most of Trozei anyway.



sinalefa commented on Review: Elliot Quest (Wii U eShop):


"also stupid that you can't back up a save file to an USB thumbdirve either unless you copy the ENTIRE game download."

This. I wanted to have a backup of each save file in the Wii U when I transferred the games to the HDD, or just transfer the game but not the save file. Or your other complain that you cannot choose where to download, as the HDD is prioritized in the eShop. Even game updates go to the HDD.

Regarding this game, not sure that I will get it. I would rather get Ittle Dew first.



sinalefa commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand On DeNA, Smart Device...:

The less we know, the more we speculate. So I will patiently wait for more information and I will keep getting Wii U and 3DS games.

I wish Nintendo the best, because I want the best from Nintendo. I also hope DeNA is the right company for this alliance.



sinalefa commented on Exclusive: Affordable Space Adventures Pricing...:

I will be eagerly awaiting NL's review of it. I hope most other sites review it too.

I have this tendency of getting bored halfway through Nifflas' games, so even if $20 is not that much, it is if I will touch the game for just a couple of hours. If I can get my bro on board, then it will be day 1.



sinalefa commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Heading For a Period of ...:

What I would love is to have their games on Android so I can actually play them. And if I can buy directly from the Google store it would be even better. I like games built for the hardware, like Where is my Water and Cut the Rope.

The way I see it, no one who is into console gaming will leave Nintendo consoles for their mobile games, but it may work the other way around. Unless they cannot afford a second console, in which case Nintendo would still get some money from them via mobile games.



sinalefa commented on Video: New Pixels Movie Trailer Passes One Mil...:

Movie trailers are like game demos to me: they either confirm I want it or put me off entirely.

This one sounds like the latter to me. Only thing I like is the funny twist to the cliched "US is doomed" scenario.


Your Mars Attack comparison seems valid. So the target audience is kids who most likely never played these games? Maybe to have parents showing the real games to them after the credits roll?

P.S. you nailed the company's name again ;)



sinalefa commented on Reaction: The Nintendo 'NX', and Why We Think ...:

Sounds great to me. There will be no more confusion between 3DS, XL, 2DS, New 3DS, Wii, Wii U, etc. as technically any game would play on any system.

Still odd that they announce it like that when they are not ready to show anything. So I also think it could be a Nintendo branded device for playing their upcoming mobile games, since they mention it the same day they are going into mobiles.
