@jdarrell The Echolocator isn't about taking zones, it's about anticipating where your opponents are coming from and subverting their attack. In places like Port Mackerel or Salt Spray Rig, it can quickly let you know whether to spend time inking surrounding areas or finding an optimal point for defense since those maps were built for defensive players.

But this depends on your play-style. It doesn't suit aggression very well, but does wonders for defense.

Not quite as good as the first three, some of the difficulty in this can be more on the cheap side instead of challenging, but still a worthy game and conclusion to what is probably the best overall Mega Man series.

Inti Creates + Action platformers = always a good time

Contra is dead, Goemon is dead, Castlevania is dead, Twinbee is dead, Gradius is dead, Parodius is dead, Sunset Riders is dead, Snatcher is dead, Suikoden is dead, Rocket Knight Adventures is dead, Jackal is dead, Zone of the Enders is dead, Boktai is dead, and Hudson Soft as a whole is dead.

Why should I believe any differently in regards to Metal Gear or Silent Hill?

Get out of the game industry already. You're already worthless and you don't even realize it.



SparkOfSpirit commented on Review: Paper Mario (Wii U eShop / Nintendo 64):

This game was good, but not quite the SMRPG sequel that I wanted. TTYD was much better as were the first and third M&L games.

I'm also really hoping Paper Mario Wii U is announced at E3 and is a return to the older style of TTYD. It's about time we get a game in that style, isn't it? We've been waiting for so long.

@JaxonH True enough. Just look at some of the comments here saying it's a terrible game because of its art style. So say goodbye to new IPs. Nintendo still can't read fans' minds and portray the exact 1::1 replica of their dream game yet, so they shouldn't even bother.

It's a shame, too. Because Codename Steam is one of the best games on the 3DS.

There is no excuse for it to not be as good as it was on the Wii but better.

Nintendo telling Natsume, for example, to not release any more SNES games is just plain silly. "No, Natsume, we don't want the money people will pay for Pocky & Rocky! Instead we'll have another week where we release NOTHING AT ALL."

How does that make sense?

The VC could be the best retro game service out there, but Nintendo is purposely gimping it and I have no idea why.

@scamander YIDS and YNI both suffer from being very slow and tedious games. The original Yoshi's Island has a more brisk pace that makes exploration enjoyable. The less said about YS the better. It looks like they finally recaptured the brisk feel with this new game.

And given that Good Feel made the underrated Wario Land: Shake It (which is pretty hard if you go for 100%), I feel they'll nail it with this.

It looks like the stage will probably be Dream Land 64, which makes a lot of sense.

I bet that also means if there's another N64 stage it will probably be Yoshi's Island since it was also a Melee stage. Personally I'd prefer Saffron City or Peach's Castle instead, but who knows what Sakurai will do at this point?

What's the problem with Baby Mario? If you play the game well, you'll never hear him cry.

Anyway, this looks great. I've really enjoyed Good Feel's works so far and this looks like the best of their efforts. I really wish we were getting this sooner than Fall.

This game is a stone cold classic. The Zero series is easily the most consistent Mega Man series. They are all well worth your time.

Ranking: 3 > 2 > 1 > 4

2 and 3 are perfect, 1 has a few difficulty issues but is otherwise excellent and 4 is great except for some annoyances like Craft which are more cheap than hard.
