Some kind of Irish writer who would hang The Wind Waker up on his wall if he could, is still impressed when he can bring the Wii U gamepad to the bathroom and has given up on ever beating Ghosts 'N Goblins on NES.

Squidzilla commented on Review: RV-7 My Drone (3DS eShop):

It uses 3D, but nothing too noteworthy. Most 3DS games do at a basic level at least.
There are just over 30 levels and the music is generic rock I guess, so about as inspired as the visuals

It's crazy how Alex and I took the same lesson, but ended up with quite different results, stylistically. Mine's a bit boxier, bit sharper, because it's simply how I wanted it to look while I was going through each step.
Love how you're given the freedom to develop your own creative style.



Squidzilla commented on Former Castlevania Producer Koji Igarashi's Ki...:

@Rasgar This is a very good point, and honestly not one that I picked up on when writing the article here. There's a chance it could be a Wii U port with very low priority, if the teaser refers to stretch goals as you say.
I took it to mean the castle itself in-game.

You could be right though, so I suppose we'll wait and see with crossed fingers!



Squidzilla commented on Review: KORG DSN-12 (3DS eShop):

@cfgk24 An excellent example of what can be done with this brilliant software! Love your stuff, brother.

Maybe the name has me biased, but my favourite just has to be McMahon's Jig!!!



Squidzilla commented on Review: Mega Man Battle Chip Challenge (Wii U ...:


This is true, but its a slim compromise overall.
I went through quite a few battles outright ignoring them to test their usefulness, and it ended up feeling like they were a vague placebo effect.

You're right though, it is something. Thanks for filling in the gap, I appreciate that its at least an extra layer of strategy.



Squidzilla commented on Review: Super Toy Cars (Wii U eShop):

@Prof_Clayton On the day of release the gamepad display wasn't working too well, even on track editor - It just displayed black. So for a half hour I thought it was an actual oversight and this score was originally a lot lower, haha.

But all fine since then, for the most part!



Squidzilla commented on Review: Adventure Island (Wii U eShop / NES):

@WaveBoy If you play it legit and put effort into making it through without a single save state, this game definitely can last quite a few hours. My count was a straight run using save states and assuming some familiarity with the levels, so really for most of the hardcore it's a lengthy challenge and will test dem skillz.



Squidzilla commented on Review: Stick It To The Man (Wii U eShop):

@Taceus @luke88 @lippe_flamarion @MeddlingIdiot @EaZy_T
Thanks very much, guys! Glad I can spread the word about a real gem on the eshop!

I very nearly put in mention of those guys, so I can see why you're surprised. My thinking was to put across the overall mood and setting as a priority , so although they're a regular feature they get a little lost in the shuffle of all the other insanity in my opinion. Perhaps a mention would have been worthwhile though, I can see where you're coming from.



Squidzilla commented on Majora's Mask "Time's End" Music Beautifully R...:

This is really spectacular, Majoras Mask continues to be an overwhelming concept for a story and it's brought all the more to life with fan projects like this. Another one I want to point out is by Theophany, who remixed a large chunk of the game's soundtrack into an album that released in 2012; the day the world 'ended'. Fans of this track should love it, so here's the link!



Squidzilla commented on Play: Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate With Nintendo ...:

Hope everyone jumps on board with this idea, as there really is nothing quite like going on the hunt with a full crew of allies. Just got into the series myself very recently, so I hope to make an appearance at some point during the night! It's going to be ridiculously fun.
