sketchturner commented on Nintendo 64x64: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's ...:

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.



sketchturner commented on Weirdness: A Wii U Gamer's Miiverse Journey Th...:

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!"



sketchturner commented on Nintendo 64x64: F-Zero X:

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.



sketchturner commented on Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition H...:

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.



sketchturner commented on Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition H...:

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.



sketchturner commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

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.



sketchturner commented on Talking Point: A Virtual Console Revival Could...:

I think games like SMB3 are just fine sitting at $5 because loads of people are willing to pay that for a game that is considered an all-time great. However, I think games that are less universally known would benefit greatly from discounts. Games like Cybernator, Ufouria, and Blaster Master would attract a lot more attention if they aren't held on the same pricing standard as the "classics."



sketchturner commented on Video: Turns Out Former James Bond Pierce Bros...:

For me, Pierce Brosnan always will be the only James Bond that matters. 1.Because Goldeneye and TWINE on N64
2.I lived at Lakenheath when he came to film Tomorrow Never Dies.
3.He exudes calm, cool, and collected better than any actor ever, IMHO.



sketchturner commented on Watch Dogs Will be the Only "Mature" Ubisoft G...:

I think this is a sensible move on Ubisoft's part. I think I'm a pretty typical Nintendo fan, and I don't buy Mature games. I like being able to play my games while my kids watch, and I don't want to fill their heads with the kind of violence, sexuality, and profanity found in games like Arkham City, Assassin's Creed, Deus Ex, Watch Dogs, or Bayonetta 2.



sketchturner commented on Ghost Song Developer "Prepared to Move Heaven ...:

"I am highly motivated, not just because so many Nintendo fans want the game on Wii U, but because I am a Nintendo fan and want it on Wii U."

More beautiful words have never been spoken by a game developer. If this hits the eshop, I'll buy it.



sketchturner commented on SteamWorld Dig Wii U Release Date and Pricing ...:

This game seems to be so well loved, but whenever I watch gameplay videos it looks like the most incredibly boring gameplay. Digging dirt. Over. And Over. And over.
Can someone please explain to me what I'm missing? I don't want to miss out on what by all accounts seems to be a great game. But at the same time, it's kind of hard to put down $10 on a game that looks so dull.



sketchturner commented on Retro Studios Ramps Up Recruitment for a Varie...:

I hope these job listings mean they are expanding and not that they are having trouble holding onto employees. I could understand people wanting to leave after their hard work on Tropical Freeze didn't translate into amazing sales.
