Squiggle55 commented on Veterans Of 3DS Title Xeodrifter Will Get The ...:

I agree with Spoony_Tech completely. I bought the game on sale, but it's not because I didn't think it was worth the full price. It's a great indie game. I like Renegade Kid's games. I just have so many games I don't need to be going around paying full price for everything. But if something good goes on sale I snatch it up for later tricking myself into thinking that I'm being thrifty.



Squiggle55 commented on Nintendo Isn't Talking About NX Because It Doe...:

I would love for the NX to work with my New 3DS somehow. But I would love even more to have a traditional home console with zero gimmicks or special selling points other than being easy to port to, lots of power, and Nintendo software.



Squiggle55 commented on Nintendo Reportedly Pitched NX To Third Partie...:

I actually have a really good feeling that they finally understand. Just make it easy for 3rd parties. Don't give them an extra peripheral with added cost of porting. Make it a simple, cheap, clean porting process for 3rd parties, add a 21st century online infrastructure for achievements and social interaction, and Nintendo will win by a landslide supported by the best software in the business.



Squiggle55 commented on The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Developers Talk ...:

I also know absolutely nothing about coding but find it surprising that this game wouldn't fit on 3DS compared to some of the seemingly massive and deep retail games.

On the other hand I love exclusives for my new hardware!



Squiggle55 commented on Mario Kart 8 Is Getting A Blisteringly Fast 20...:

Man Iwata faked me out big time with this announcement. I was absolutely confident as they were going through the old clips of Mario Kart that they were going to say "battle mode" and we were going to get a real battle mode announcement.



Squiggle55 commented on Free-To-Play Puzzler Pokémon Shuffle Gets Upd...:

I actually like games like this. I never spend any money on them. And, in fact, it's built in such a way that without limiting the gameplay to 20 minute bursts it would actually probably lose its appeal much quicker. So the hearts don't bother me.



Squiggle55 commented on Poll: Which 2015 Nintendo Blockbusters Should ...:

Nintendo needs their version of skylanders or disney infinity to really get things going and show things off. And I bet they're working on it. The figures themselves are more intriguing to me than any gameplay value, which I'm not sure is what they want ideally. I also really wish they would build figures that remember multiple game data.



Squiggle55 commented on Miyamoto: We Are Working On Ideas For The Next...:

I wish someone would tell them they don't need new ideas. They just need to copy the online infrastructure of Sony and Microsoft and then keep doing what they do making great software. Feed the masses with their desire to have an online account to be proud of and show off their accomplishments coupled with nintendo software and they will be number one.

And please please please kill the Wii brand and go back to basic, sane naming strategies.



Squiggle55 commented on Talking Point: The Wii U eShop is Raising Toug...:

@DefHalan The problem with your argument is that it's simply not done on the eshop. There is no early access program for Nintendo. No matter which way you spin it, if the developers intention was to release an incomplete game, which you claim, then people are being tricked, because it simply isn't done on the eshop. No matter how vocal you think the dev is being, anything short of saying in the description on the eshop "Warning: My intention is to release an incomplete game ala early access programs" is not vocal enough. Of course he doesn't say this because it isn't done on Nintendo. How you feel about early access is irrelevant.



Squiggle55 commented on Talking Point: The Wii U eShop is Raising Toug...:

@DefHalan Your defense of The Letter is that it is unfinished. That would be a great defense if someone broke into his house, stole the files off his computer, played what he had, and wrote a review. Do you seriously not see a problem with what he did? You admit yourself nobody else has tried this on a console before. Did you ever wonder if there was a reason for that?



Squiggle55 commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

I am torn. I am not overwhelmingly disappointed. But I'm also not as happy as I could be. I think I like getting Game & Wario better than the soundtrack last year, and the pins the year before that. But what I really want is something nice like the statue from the year before. But if they were just going to give us something lame like the last 2 years then I prefer the retail game. But I would also prefer more retail games to choose from. They know full well that people earn these points by buying a lot of games, so they need to provide a lot more retail choices.



Squiggle55 commented on Vblank Entertainment Provides Sales Threshold ...:

How does the sales threshold work? After it hits the threshold he gets a big hunk of cash for all the games that have been sold already, getting back all of his investment at once? That is an insane policy. I'm sure someone has mentioned it already, but he should have made the fans put their money where there mouth is first if they were ragging on him for potentially not releasing on wiiware. Make a Kickstarter page and have them prebuy a wiiware copy with a 20k goal.



Squiggle55 commented on Double Fine Is Bringing Costume Quest 2 To The...:

I'll be interested to hear if they use the gamepad in any way other than offscreen play. If not I'll once again choose Playstation for the simple fact that they have trophies and everything else is equal. But I am SUPER excited about a sequel to this game. One of my real highlights of last generation personally.



Squiggle55 commented on Review: Pure Chess (3DS eShop):

I love chess and this classic game is absolutely screaming to give it the proper live multiplayer on consoles it deserves. What is the deal, voofoo?



Squiggle55 commented on Review: Pure Chess (Wii U eShop):

Come on! I really had my hopes up that they would improve the multiplayer from the Sony versions. I WANTED to buy this on the Wii U. But, come on! What is the deal? This has to be the absolute simplest type of game to have multiplayer for.



Squiggle55 commented on Industry Veteran Peter Molyneux Warns The Indi...:

Indie games are here to stay. Technology has given them the opportunity to be a part of the marketplace. They are more affordable and typically more original. There is no logical reason to think they're going anywhere unless he thinks big publishers are going to lower their prices significantly and take more creative chances.



Squiggle55 commented on Ninterview: TriForce Johnson - A Journey From ...:

@Agent721 Well said. Lots of respect due to TriForce. Wonderful interview too.

I can't help but add though that, even though I'm no line expert, going home for a few hours and showering simply doesn't seem like it should be allowed. What are the official line rules?



Squiggle55 commented on Feature: VooFoo Studios and Ripstone on Pure C...:

@ThomasBW84 Thanks for the info. I might have to buy this game again then. Like you said, tournaments would have been really nice, but in essence no multiplayer on Sony was beyond ridiculous. I love the chess problems in the game, but in this day and age having a chess game on the latest and greatest hardware without being able to play online was silly. Playing this on the gamepad online should be pretty fun.



Squiggle55 commented on Feature: VooFoo Studios and Ripstone on Pure C...:

Are you auto-paired with random players with a similar ranking? Do you join games in a lobby? Or can you only play people on your friend list?

I'm glad there is real multiplayer. I understand the difficultly in implementing cross platform play, especially with smart phones. But I still can't understand why I couldn't just play real online multiplayer with my vita against other people with vitas.



Squiggle55 commented on Julius Caesar Will Be Taking the Battle to the...:

@Warbeard You're absolutely right that people should be encouraged instead of bashed when they are pursuing their dreams or goals. For my part I extend my sincere encouragement to the guy. Keep working on what you love. My skepticism is not directed towards him in any sort of negative way. I simply don't understand why NintendoLife has singled out this one person with only an idea to continue to talk about. There are lots of people who haven't made games before who have ideas. At the very most this seems to deserve perhaps 1 feel good story about an amateur's dream, not a new article for character reveals like this is Smash Bros. I just hope that if there's another article about the game, it's that the guy wowed Nintendo with his alpha build of the game and got his developer approval. Not that he paid someone to sketch Abraham Lincoln.



Squiggle55 commented on Julius Caesar Will Be Taking the Battle to the...:

It's not that I don't believe this game will ever be made, it's more so that I think there are probably thousands of people who want to be game developers and have drawn a picture, so I don't know why this one gets coverage.



Squiggle55 commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

Should games like this be boycotted? No. Absolutely not. As a father I am 100% more likely to feel the compulsion to boycott games like Call of Duty, because I fear the desensitization to violence much more than I do the exposure to nudity. Sex is natural, murder is not.

I'm the last person in the world who would discriminate against anybody, and I would never intentionally be insulting to a woman, or anyone for that matter. I believe in women's rights the same way I believe in rights for everyone. But women who are offended by the sexualization of humans need to step back and think about what they're even mad about. They weren't disrespected. Nobody insulted them. Would they feel the same way if someone made a game with the sexualization of men? Spoiler alert: no they wouldn't.



Squiggle55 commented on Talking Point: Important Steps to Bring the 3D...:

This article is absolutely exactly right. The absolute biggest problem with Nintendo right now is that they are lagging far behind in providing an entire Nintendo ecosystem that is up to par with the competition. I think this is greatly affecting their success and stifling the potential for more loyalty.



Squiggle55 commented on Aksys Games Confirms 999: The Novel For iOS:

Hope it comes to android too. I'll certainly buy it no doubt about it. The story is my favorite part. This was actually a very good idea. I'd like to see more interactive visual novels simplified down to the core like this. Playing something like this on a trip on an Ipad would be awesome.

It's not that I don't like the puzzles. But I'd be lying if I didn't continuously think I have to get through this room so I can get back to the story. Who knows, maybe being rewarded with the story after solving a long puzzle is integral to the fun.
