sketchturner commented on This Master Arts Metroid Prime 2 Light Suit Fr...:

Considering Echoes is my favorite game ever... this is very tempting. I have enough spare money set aside, but that would completely deplete my WiiU games fund. Not quite worth it... I'd rather have Smash U, Zelda, Splatoon, Yoshi's Wooly World, Starfox, etc.
Now, if they make my favorite (Dark Suit), this could be another story...



sketchturner commented on Ocarina Of Time Began Life As A Remake Of Zeld...:

You know what's funny... if you read through the old Nintendo Power magazines from when AoL came out, it's obvious that gamers absolutely LOVED the game. It was very highly esteemed, with many people declaring it a much better game than LoZ. Over the years, however, it has received increasing hate as more and more gamers have gone soft.



sketchturner commented on Talking Point: The Wii U eShop is Raising Toug...:

In general, I believe in a free market place. However, this is more fitting on the PC. When I buy a Nintendo system, I do expect there to be a certain stamp of approval ("Nintendo Seal of Quality" anyone?). I want Nintendo to be receptive to game developers, but I also want Nintendo to ultimately have authority to say "Sorry, The Letter is a horrendous game and we will not allow it on our eshop."



sketchturner commented on Poll: Which is Your Favourite Super Smash Bros...:

Metroid is my favorite series, so obviously Samus is my choice.Mega Man is my favorite newcomer.
If Jigglypuff is announced, that will be my favorite fighter. As cool as Samus is, beating people with a pink puff and bow is so awesomely degrading.



sketchturner commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

I don't mind downloadable rewards, but the lack of exclusivity bothers me. Anyone can get these games, not just platinum Club Nintendo members. Doc Louis Punch-Out is a good example. Not to mention that by nature of the program Nintendo is offering these games to the people MOST likely to already own them. Good grief Charlie Brown...



sketchturner commented on First Impressions: Exploring the Depths of Aff...:

I love the visuals of the game and the overall concept. But I'm a little put off by the complexity. I enjoy complex games very much (i.e., Wonderful 101), but at some point it can start to interfere with the fun of the experience rather than add to it. Hopefully this game manages to keep the proper balance in its final product. It definitely shows great promise.



sketchturner commented on Sony: PS4 Is "Welcoming Back" Wii Owners Who S...:

Last gen I skipped PS3 and 360. Wii was my main console, although I also bought a PS2 in 2012. I have no interest in PS4. None. Zip. Nada. Once PS3 is $50, I'll pick one up just so I can have HD Shadow of the Colossus, along with a handful of other games.

Woah, they're right! I can't stop! I'm gonna lie, cheat, and steal to get my next gaming fix! I can't live a functional life! Can't hold down a job or support a family! My health is rapidly deteriorating!

Oh wait... none of that is true.



sketchturner commented on First Impressions: Taking Sonic Boom for a Spi...:

Cautiously curious about the WiiU version. The combat looks dull like werehog levels. However, I love that the speed sections have removed bottomless pits. For the 3D games that focus on speed, having bottomless pits just killed the flow of the game. I'd much rather the penalty be that I drop to a lower "line" that is less cool, less speedy, or has fewer good items.



sketchturner commented on Don't Worry, Nintendo Hasn't Forgotten About T...:

The Wii VC is already so huge, there really aren't many games I would want to come out. I just wish they could streamline it so I don't have to hop into Wii mode in order to access my giant VC library.
My #1 VC request:Zero Mission.



sketchturner commented on Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition Releas...:

I played about 15 minutes of the original and while clearly a well-made game, it was a bit too slow and methodical for my tastes. I did own and complete Heart of Darkness (spiritual successor to this game), which was a brilliant yet tedious experience. Still, I am happy for those who will enjoy this game.
