skjia commented on Review: Azure Striker Gunvolt (3DS eShop):

Great review. I'm loving my time with this game. Some of the challenges are quite...er challenging. I can definitely recommend the game to anyone who enjoys mega man style action games.

skjia commented on First Impressions: Throwing Down in Shigeru Mi...:

@Octane Those aren't really mistakes, they're just not things you like. I actually did like the blowing mechanic in DKCR and enjoyed Star Fox Adventures and Sticker Star. I'm not saying everything he does is amazing and while this looks neat I was fairly underwhelmed by this too, but who knows, I imagine the first time people saw Pikmin it probably looked weird too lol.

skjia commented on 3DS System Update 8.0.0-18 is Now Live:

Going up from 8.0 makes me think there's more than stability involved. Surprise Nintendo Direct soon maybe perhaps?

Would love it if 3DS VC finally had button mapping. And, like everyone else said folders, UI overhaul, cross-buy, jet pack, etc.

skjia commented on Feature: A Cross-Platform Look At E3 2014:

I have to say I'm actually surprised that when I visit other gaming sites, there seems to be a lot less Nintendo bashing. I don't need everyone to love Nintendo but it sure is nice when everyone can get along lol.

@aaronsullivan I know, the new Zelda was very exciting partially because I was worried they were going to go more realistic, but after seeing that art style, I somehow know I'll love the game.

skjia commented on The Wii U Version Of Super Smash Bros. Will Ut...:

The only way I see the figurines unlocking characters is if it's as an alternate way to unlock them. Sort of like shortcut dlc, only with figurines.

Anyway, it's one guy saying something and being translated to say they're using NFC on Wii U. I think people need to just wait till there's an official announcement before saying Nintendo is or isn't making a mistake.

skjia commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd April (Europe):

These games are between $10 - 20 on Amazon. Actually, Fusion is $25. And those are used prices plus shipping. Really these prices are not bad. I'm looking forward to finally playing the original Advance Wars. Never got around to playing it before.

skjia commented on Talking Point: Super Metroid's 20th Anniversar...:

@Bolt_Strike Well if you look at it like that, what does any game do that is actually new? Lol. Tropical freeze is a really well done platformer. I agree there are too many 2D platformers now but of all of them DKCTF is about the only one that actually does really interesting things and is legitimately challenging.

Also, I agree. I've always wanted to see the story after fusion since it was a huge game changer story wise.

skjia commented on Talking Point: Super Metroid's 20th Anniversar...:

@Bolt_Strike I'm sorry... did you just call Donkey Kong Country a boring, predictable 2D platformer? I agree I would love a new Metroid game on either Wii U or 3DS but DKCTF is an incredible game.

Anyway, I would love to see a 3D Metroid on Wii U (first or third person) and a 2.5D on 3DS.

skjia commented on Review: Yoshi's New Island (3DS):

I'm glad to see people are starting to post positive things about this game. I decided to give it a go and, while it's not the greatest game in the world, it's solid and I'm enjoying it as much as I enjoy a New Super Mario Bros. game (this is essentially the Yoshi version of that).
It's a shame that people will be turned off by this having an overly harsh score. I could even understand a 6 but 5 is awfully low.

Also, I'm amazed that not one review I've read has mentioned the gyroscopic aiming. It actually works surprisingly well. I like it a lot more than the wait for the cursor method. And I'm not usually a fan of gyro controls.

Anyway, if you think you might enjoy it, give it a shot. It's really a solid game.

skjia commented on Retro Studios Talks Up Wii U And Has Been Work...:

I look forward to whatever the are making. They have yet to let me down. I would love a new Metroid but Retro has done a great job reviving Metroid and Donkey Kong so I would love to see what they could do with some other long neglected Nintendo Franchise.

skjia commented on Month Of Kong: Tropical Freeze Composer David ...:

Tropical Freeze has some seriously amazing music. I'm only on world 3 and I've been blown away by how good the songs are. Definitely the best soundtrack I've heard on a new game in a long time.

That's funny he didn't realize how big of an impact the news of him doing the soundtrack would have because that's a huge selling point. When I tell people about the game, that's the thing that really peaks their interest.

skjia commented on Wii Fit No Substitute For Real Exercise Accord...:

This is kind of like when you stop drinking coke and drink Gatorade instead. People start telling you how Gatorade has too much sugar and you shouldn't drink it. lol.
It's better than nothing people. If you don't wanna use it, that's okay. No need to insult people and say they're stupid just because they find a use for it.

skjia commented on Nintendo Is Here To Stay And Will Do Very Well...:

Absolutely a lot of it is the media. Even when the press report something good about Nintendo, it's mired with negative comments and jokes about how the system has no games or is inferior. And to show it's not just fanboyism, it's the same with the Vita. People just love to put it down.
I've been saying it all last year, people say the Wii U sucks and has no games because the media tells them that, not because it's true.

skjia commented on Review: RUSH (Wii U eShop):

I really am enjoying this game much more than I thought I would. It's extremely satisfying when you find the solution to the stage and watch the blocks move to the goals. This is definitely my favorite of the Two Tribes games (The discount ones that is. Nothing beats Toki Tori 2)

skjia commented on Review: Bravely Default (3DS):

Lol yes, because Square Enix is the only video game company that objectifies women.

Looks great. This review has encouraged me to go ahead and preorder the collector's edition.
