sketchturner commented on Review: Donkey Kong Land 2 (3DS eShop / Game Boy):

My favorite GB game. This was my childhood, more than any other game. I spent literally hundreds of hours speed running this game. For someone who didn't have SNES this was a more than adequate alternative to DKC2. In fact, I prefer this version in some ways. 10/10

Sad to see such negativity toward this one. I think it's pretty brilliant and have played it off and on for 14 years (nearly half my life!). The only other puzzle games to hold my attention like that are Chu Chu Rocket and Chip's Challenge.

@SUBTERRANEANguy Correct, I am skipping Bayonetta 1+2 (even though gameplay-wise I'm sure I'd LOVE them) because I am consistent in my stance. I also skipped Hyrule Warriors for the same reason (CIA).
For me, it's not just about degradation of women. It's about the degradation of sex (and sex appeal) in general. I view it as something sacred within marriage, not something to be cheapened via marketing in order to make a buck.

Best Zelda game ever. One of the top 10 Nintendo games ever.
Unfortunately, you can't possibly appreciate this game until you attempt 100% completion. And most people just rush through the dungeons and miss out on what makes the game such a delight. You have to allow yourself to be immersed in Termina. If you just rush to the moon, you're doing it wrong.

sketchturner commented on Feature: The Making of Rocket: Robot on Wheels:

Thank you for this article. Rocket was one of my favorite games on N64. Also, I strongly agree that "one thing that is definitely clear is... that high-quality third-party titles do exist within the N64’s limited software library."
Whenever someone says N64 didn't have strong 3rd party support or exclusives, I immediately know that person is very unfamiliar with the system's library. I can list dozens of top-notch 3rd party exclusives... certainly more than any other 3D Nintendo system has.

I am shocked how many people didn't realize this was all a joke. I am more shocked at the people who realize it's a joke but don't have a sense of humor. This is hilarious stuff. Forget getting Ridley in Smash Bros... let's get "the eagle!"

An absolutely perfect racer. I always go back and forth whether I prefer this or GX. They're both phenomenal in their unique way. But overall, I find this slightly more fun.

BTW, for anyone on the fence about this game, don't hesitate. While I am not attracted to the Mexican style, the game has so much personality you can't help but love it. Definitely one of the best eShop games available, right up there with Shovel Knight.

How intriguing! I bought this game at release but have been making my way through it slowly since I only play when my little brother can come over for co-op. I'm guessing we're about 2/3 of the way through. The game is fantastic, and I'm really loving how well the co-op works. Except when we mess with each other by switching dimensions constantly. Hehe...

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

This is practically a tie among 10 games for me. Ultimately, I'd say Sunshine is my favorite 3D and NSMBU is favorite 2D. I gave my vote to NSMBU since nobody else will ;-p I think it's a tremendous game that is poorly thought of simply due to lackluster visuals.

Metroid is my favorite series ever, but the sexual element has always bothered me. I know it's been there since the beginning, but I wish it would decrease rather than increase. I like Samus as a kick-butt action hero, not as a bikini pin-up.
