sketchturner commented on Music: Say Hello To The World's First LSDj Mus...:

This is awesome! I'm a complete sucker for GB music. Some of my favorites are Fortified Zone, Survival Kids, Kirby's Dreamland, Cliffhanger, Donkey Kong Land 2, and Mario Land 1/2/3.

I wish this cartridge didn't cost quite so much, though. I'd certainly pay that for music I know I'm gonna love, but not all chip tune music is automatically great...

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

I hope the online works buttery smooth like Mario Kart 8 and not laggy like Smash U. Smash might as well not have online unless it is lag-free, IMO.
Regardless, I am very excited about this game. I just hope that the offline experience will be robust enough that online won't be a make or break asset. In other words, WE NEED BOTS!!!!!!!!!

sketchturner commented on Preview: We Take Aim at Splatoon to See if It ...:

I am very excited for this game, but I really hope that multiplayer will be possible against A.I. bots. Smash U is pretty unplayable due to the lag, so I'd rather just play against the computer.
Plus, I hate when multiplayer on games dies once the network has gone down. I love that I can still play rounds of TimeSplitters 2 against bots.

sketchturner commented on Remake Request: Super Metroid 3D on Nintendo 3DS:

This would be cool if they used all-new, highly detailed sprite-work (think Rayman Origins). As much as I love pixel-art, a re-release of Super Metroid that still looks like an SNES game (even an updated one) will not be fresh enough to feel worth $30.
As others said, I'd much rather see Return of Samus get the Zero Mission treatment.

With all that being said, I did buy OlliOlli and consider it to be WELL worth the $9 I spent on it. I am having a blast. I don't care about high score games, but to me this game is much more than that. I like the precision of technique required. But that's just me.

sketchturner commented on Review: OlliOlli (Wii U eShop):

@erv Being 30 and financially stable with a family, house, and multiple vehicles, I can definitely relate. When I was young, it was all about what games do I have the money to play. Now that I can buy whatever games I want, I find myself becoming a lot more picky because my time is more valuable.

A couple years ago, I made the switch from buying every good game I wanted to only buying the GREAT games I wanted. After a couple years, I have finally managed to blow through my entire backlog. I now only have 1-2 games that I haven't completed 100%. And when I feel like playing something else, I replay some of my old favorites. This has been a much more enjoyable experience compared to a few years ago when I consistently had 50+ games in my backlog.

Also, while I used to buy used/discounted games so that I could afford more games, I have begun to primarily only buy new. The way I see it, if a game isn't exciting enough for me to pay full price, then it's not worth my time even if I get it 80% off. Plus, I'd rather the game publishers who make truly great games to get justly paid for their hard work.

@Mijzelffan @Kaze_Memaryu
I could understand not being impressed by the game if you only played the initial playthrough, which is basically easy mode. I view that more as a tutorial to get used to the game. The game's true brilliance becomes apparent once you play New Game+, which is much harder. I have yet to encounter a single person who completed NG+ and didn't think Shovel Knight is an amazing game. So I'd recommend giving it another chance if this applies to you.

BTW, for those who don't know, WayForward did the remake of A Boy and His Blob on Wii and it is FANTASTIC. It's a more slow-paced puzzle platformer, but once you get into the groove, it is a really tremendously well-designed and challenging game.

I've heard great things about MSF:HD, but the gameplay just looks boring to me. Then again, SteamWorld Dig looked similarly bland and I ended up loving it.
Shantae's gameplay looks right up my alley but I refuse to buy games with girls wearing skimpy clothing.

sketchturner commented on Site News: A New Readership Survey Has Appeared:

I know the exact date I started visiting NintendoLife because it was the day that the giveaway sweepstakes of Groovin' Blocks was announced. I've been visiting the site several times a day ever since (4&1/2 years).
BTW, I love surveys...

sketchturner commented on Interplay Is Remastering Cult SNES Brawler Cla...:

I owned the original on the Genesis and played it quite a lot, despite not typically enjoying fighters. The humor, characters, and art style really made the game stand out. I never played the N64 games but I spent copious amounts of time drawing detailed sketches of all the characters. If this remake comes to WiiU, I'll almost definitely pick it up.

You're telling me people play video games to have FUN!? Stop the madness! If it weren't for this scientific study... I never would have known! In light of these findings, I'm going to have to re-evaluate everything I believe to be true.
