SqueakyTheBone commented on Shovel Knight's Order of No Quarter Boss Lineu...:

Gosh, to think that when I first saw this shizzle I passed it off as just another generic, retro inspired indie game. How silly I was!

Seriously though, this game is lookin' to be freakin' amazing. Fingers crossed it turns out that way!



SqueakyTheBone commented on Tomodachi Collection: New Life Features Same-S...:

Haha, I love how after you're done yammering about this so called 'traditional marriage' you have the audacity to talk about treating gay people "fairly without thought to their sexual preferences". Hypocrisy truly is a wonderful thing.

Also, perhaps some people don't understand this, but being gay ain't a choice. Your petty religious beliefs on the other hand, are. Just think about that before you go screaming about discrimination towards your high and mighty 'beliefs'.



SqueakyTheBone commented on MercurySteam Still Interested In Developing A ...:

I know Contra is something of a niche game nowadays, but honestly, I'd rather it stay that way than see a MercurySteam reboot of it. After what they did to Castlevania, I shudder to think of what they could do to Contra, especially in today's market.



SqueakyTheBone commented on Feature: Series Reboots That Have Divided Gamers:

Ah man, Mirror of Fate... i'm still a bit sore about that one. Or at least as sore as one can be about videogames.

Although I really wasn't a huge fan of 'metroidvania' genre the series would adopt in more modern times, I felt they at least captured the spirit of the games that came before it, bringing some new blood to the series, yet still feeling like... well, a Castlevania game.

This Lords of Shadow sub series on the other hand makes changes so drastic to both the aesthetics and gameplay that it feels like it should have just been its own game entirely. It completely fails to capture any of what I originally came to love about the series in the first place, and to make matters worse the games just aren't exactly brilliant even on their own merit.

As much as I've tried, this is one change I just can't get to grips with.



SqueakyTheBone commented on Review: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror ...:

Change can be good thing, providing said changes are, y'know, good. I'll agree that the series perhaps needed a bit of a boot up the arse after the increasingly bland metroidvania games, but good lord, this isn't the solution! Not only have MercurySteam failed to capture the essence of what made me love the series in the first place, its not even a good game on its own merit.

That being said, this is (admittedly) going off of what I played of the demo and various gameplay videos, but unless somehow the game drastically improves in quality later in, i'm really struggling to look at this one in a positive light.

I know this is all a bit ranty, but man, this Lords of Shadow sub series has been nothing but a big ol' disappointment for me so far, no matter how much I try to convince myself otherwise. I can only hope the series gets itself out of this rut soon-ish, but hey ho.



SqueakyTheBone commented on Review: Prince of Persia (Wii Virtual Console ...:

Ah man, turns out I was a little quick too judge with this one. I went back to it recently, and despite a few uh, 'teething troubles' with the controls, its grown on me quite a bit. Its always worth giving these things a second chance it seems!



SqueakyTheBone commented on Machinarium Finally, Officially Cancelled:

Ah, what a pity! But I have to ask, whats to stop them from moving the project onto another platform? Surely size limitations alone can't warrant for the complete cancellation of the game?

Or maybe it can. I dunno.



SqueakyTheBone commented on Review: Cave Story 3D (3DS):

I'll be picking this one up, but not straight away. Cave Story is a great game, for sure, but at this point i've played through it too many times (by which I mean, uh, twice) for this to be an insta-buy.

Still, this remake looks real nice though!



SqueakyTheBone commented on So That's What a Boomerang Flower Looks Like:

@21. Thats quite the conclusion you came to there Mullster! I didn't mean goofy in a particularly bad way, its just that when you're dealing with a game with Boomerang Flowers, Tanooki Boo's and... well, general Mario wackiness, 'goofy' just seemed like a good word to describe it all, y'know?

Then again, I did just use the word 'wacky' for kinda the same purpose. I guess it has a slightly more positive twang to it, maybe I should've used that. Huzzah!



SqueakyTheBone commented on Review: Wario World (GameCube):

While this game wasn't up to snuff with what you'd expect from a Wario platformer, I did get a decent amount of enjoyment out of it. Its about a 7 outta 10 for me.



SqueakyTheBone commented on Learn to Wield the Master Sword in Skyward Swo...:

I'd argue that some of the visuals in Windwaker have aged a bit, but regardless, its still a very pretty game. Personally i'm not seeing this whole 'blur' shindig, but then again i'm not particularly picky about those kinda things.

Oh man, swingin' swords. Heck yeah.
