Spideron commented on Standalone Chibi-Robo amiibo Will Be Amazon Ex...:

I got the bundle with the amiibo, it's a fun little game... Too bad the sh*tty review here and other places killed it before release. And don't come with the 6 is a decent score! 95% of gamers will go "6? Ok this sucks".



Spideron commented on Nintendo Breaks Out the Bubbly Following More ...:

@NintendoFan64 Dude... do you even read before you react? He said Italians (in general) don't like spending money on electronics etc. so they pirate - he therefore predicts a decrease in hardware sales.

He also says his own parents didn't approve of him buying legal games and videos with his own money instead of pirating! How the hell is that defending piracy!?!



Spideron commented on Super Mario Maker Still Leads the Way for Nint...:

The omission of a quality single-player experience is the single reason TriForce Heroes is selling so bad. It's the way most players play on the 3DS. Can't believe Nintendo still do these obvious f*ck-ups!

I might get it if they patch the single-player a bit. Things like instant totem-up with a button-press, non-controlled characters following the player etc. would make me reconsider.



Spideron commented on Dry Bowser and Bowser Jr. will be in Mario Ten...:

This is day 1 for me! Me and my boys love Nintendo sports games.

Btw, how is it all here keeps rooting for Nintendo and the WiiU, and then each game that comes 90% goes "Nah, I'll skip this one..."? Nintendo-fans gotta be the whiniest gamers around. Either it's "Nothing new - the same old, same old..." or it's "What, they changed it? I want the old one..."



Spideron commented on Sega: Recent Sonic Games Haven't Been "Accepta...:

You have to remove the speed from Sonic-games for them to work in 3D. Otherwise you'll not get acceptable control - or worse yet - just him running on auto with minimal user input. There can be some sub-levels or parts in levels with simple high-speed racing based on fast reaction, but not complete levels - it's just no fun for the majority of players...

Speed is also why I never played the Sonic games way back when. I always found them boring with no exploration etc. Sorry, fanbois!



Spideron commented on It's Official, Hideo Kojima Has Parted Ways Wi...:

"In the video game industry, AAA (pronounced "triple A") is a classification term used for games with the highest development budgets and levels of promotion or the highest ratings by a consensus of professional reviewers. A title considered to be AAA is therefore expected to be a high quality game or to be among the year's bestsellers. For a title to remain AAA post-launch, it must be either commercially or critically successful."

According to this, there's alot of Nintendo AAA games.



Spideron commented on Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam Launches on 4th Decem...:

Me and my boys loved Dream Team and Sticker Stars, so this is an instant pre-order for me. People complain too much about Nintendo trying new stuff out and just want more of the same old, same old. Just STFU and buy everything from Nintendo - it's all great stuff! Can't wait to get my hands on Tristar Heroes and ZipLash! (/fanboi rant off)



Spideron commented on Nintendo Download: 8th October (Europe):

Wow, finally a good week!

Will be getting Mario Sports Mix, Pocky & Rocky With Becky & 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2.

Might get STARWHAL later on if there's a discount, looks like a game I'll get bored with quickly.

Also want Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures and Dig Dug II, but the VC titles are a bit pricey. Maybe on a future bad week.



Spideron commented on Nintendo Download: 17th September (Europe):

Yay, Mario vs. Donkey Kong finally!

Got March of the Minis already on DS cart so I can play that on the 3DS, otherwise I would get that too. Great games, great series for us arcade-puzzlers!



Spideron commented on Rumour: Sega 3D Classics Such As Golden Axe Co...:

Really hope this turn out to be false! On this list I'd only get Golden Axe and maybe Streets of Rage 3. Of all the great Sega games out there, this list is really crap (IMHO ).

Skimming through a Top 100 Genesis-list (and not considering copyrights etc.), these would be great:

  • Ristar
  • Ghouls 'n Ghosts
  • Zombies Ate My Neighbors
  • Bubble & Squeak
  • Zero the Kamikaze Squirrel
  • Castle of Illusion
  • Quackshot
  • Story of Thor/Beyond Oasis
  • Wonder Boy in Monster World
  • Contra: Hard Corps/Probotector
  • Thunder Force IV/Lightening Force
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 3


Spideron commented on Interview: Engine Software and Orangepixel on ...:

@Soren It's a perfectly fitting answer in all cases above, work harder on your English at school!

But kidding aside, he's just saying he's ready and willing to participate in the stuff they're asked about - or however I should explain it, English is not my 1st language.



Spideron commented on Talking Point: Pokkén Tournament May Not Be a...:

Can't you just drop the save the WiiU-crap? Nothing's gonna save the WiiU - it's gonna be a modest seller like the N64 and GC. Most of us who own it, love it - the rest of the world don't care.

Next chance for Nintendo to get a hit is the NX - probably a slightly upgraded WiiU "docking" with a "core" you can bring with you and play on the go - that's my guess. Hopefully supporting the 3DS carts and all your eShop purchases. It might also support some sort of Android to run apps - we'll see.

I think Nintendo won't ever have a big hit if they don't drop the "unique hardware"-approach - make a box that's easy to port PS4 and XB1 games to, otherwise they'll always be a niche developer for the core fans. It's the IPs and high-quality games that sell, not the gimmicky HW.

Anyways, please drop the saving-talk, it's just click-bait and it's getting real old!

Edit: Oh, and I'm getting this day one "for the kids"...



Spideron commented on Hands On: Devil's Third - Sampling Online Chao...:

With a big focus on online, it's a 'no thanks' from me. Also, the main character looks just plain dumb, like a leftover from some really bad 80's B-movie. Might be the intention - haven't read too much about this game - but this just adds to the 'not for me'. And micro-transactions... well, 'no thanks' again. Too bad!



Spideron commented on Sonic Dash Passes 100 Million Smart Device Dow...:

@rjejr & @TwilightV

Of course they don't include how much $ they've earned. Telling the casual gamer that people have spent $15.000.000 on this "free" game is not good publicity. It just shows how not-free the game really is. Revealing how much it has earned Sega doesn't sell the game at all!

Edit: Oh, and for those that don't get it - the $15M was just a number picked out of the air!



Spideron commented on Reggie Has Been Pushing For Binding Of Isaac T...:

I read about this game every now and then and usually check a gameplay-video on YouTube. And I'm always thinking it looks insanely boring... And the usual piss / poo / guts content for cheap 'shock-value'... And the 'religious' stuff - does anybody besides right-wing idiots in the US really care?!?



Spideron commented on Nintendo Download: 4th June (Europe):

Another 'Nothing' week! And why is it when they finally start releasing titles from the enormous ocean of DS games, they choose crap like 'Big Brain Academy'?!? I mean, it might be an ok-ish title, but there are like 537 titles to pick before this one!

AND I want 'Mario Vs Donkey Kong' (GBA) on the VC! Oh well, got 'Mini-Land Mayhem' used at GameStop this weekend, will have to do for now...



Spideron commented on Satoru Iwata Will Return as Nintendo Direct Ho...:

@freaksloan I was in several stores this Saturday here in Norway that had all the separate Splatoon amiibos & the Splatoon box with the squid included, at normal RP.

Are you saying you won't buy a product at all if it's sold out at any given time?!? Great way to save money though...



Spideron commented on Nintendo Download: 28th May (Europe):

Another week of nothing, not even some cool VC releases. Tested the Splatoon-demo, but the online bit doesn't interest me - I'll wait for a proper review of the offline part. Kinda tired of Splatoon after all the hype, already feels like an old game.



Spideron commented on Review: Ultratron (Wii U eShop):

'Ultratron is, however, a throwback to the arcade shooters of yesteryear – for the older generation think Smash TV, and for the twenty somethings imagine Geometry Wars: Galaxies.'

I think the older generation thinks 'Robotron: 2084', which I was playing the year the reviewer was born...

Oh, and btw - the 'older generation' votes 9/10 for this game...

Spoony_Tech & cpuryear: Damn, beat me to it, had to fight with the kids while writing this ... homework...



Spideron commented on Yooka-Laylee Double-Jumps Through Final Kickst...:

@Laxeybobby If you watch the video interviews, they're not interested in a publisher - they don't want anyone to come in and make changes to the process. The only thing they'll look at is a possible partner who'll let them do it their way. With these guys' history and love for Nintendo, the day 1 release on Wii U is guaranteed.
