Stargazer commented on Review: Gunman Clive 2 (3DS eShop):
Stargazer commented on Three New LEGO Games Heading for Nintendo Hard...:
Yep. It either freezes or something in the game world glitches(character gets stuck or switch fails to activate or something that is supposed to happen doesn't) and you have to restart a mission in order to progress.
Lego Marvel is awful. The framerate is abysmal in co-op, the game glitches or locks up at least once every 2 hours, and the puzzles are constant, boring, and recycled ad nauseum
Stargazer commented on Masahiro Sakurai Once Again Highlights The Pos...:
I completely fail to see what was so daunting about creating these Smash rehashes. The template is already in place. There was nothing ambitious about the single player mode, and no one seems to care about the new secondary modes
Stargazer commented on Weirdness: Hands Up If You Knew About the Supe...:
Had NES. Subbed to Nintendo Power. Lamented having to restart this damn game from 1-1 countless times. Never knew this.
Stargazer commented on Rock 'N Racing Off Road Aims to Bring Mayhem t...:
@MeloMan This is essentially aping the name and trying to appeal to our nostalgia.
Stargazer commented on Review: Axelay (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo):
I love this game. Even if it's too damn short.
I always preferred Space Megaforce but this was one of my favorite SNES shmups.
Stargazer commented on Review: Xeodrifter (3DS eShop):
4 hours. I was afraid of that. Probably 2 or 3 for those of us who don't go for 100%
Stargazer commented on Renegade Kid’s 3DS Metroidvania Title Xeodri...:
@Spoony_Tech - same here. I played Mudds a decent amount just because the 3D effect was so new and shiny, but it certainly wasn't great. I'm afraid this game will be one of those 1/4 finished Metroidvanias that lasts 2 hours and has one boss fight, but I'd like to be wrong.
Stargazer commented on Table Top Racing: World Tour Dev Isn't Sure Ab...:
Who cares. The game gets boring after an hour anyway.
Edit: Well, the original did, anyway.
Stargazer commented on Review: Paper Monsters Recut (Wii U eShop):
It's a decent little platformer. It had performance issues on iOS as well so no surprise there.
Stargazer commented on Satoru Okada, Director Of Game Boy And DS Hard...:
So this is why the 3DS' top screen gets scratched. And the paint peels. And general build shoddiness.
Stargazer commented on Review: Cybernator (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo):
@mudmask - Sadly, no. Metal Warriors did a lot of things right and I still loved it, but it was missing the awesome music and overall atmosphere that Cybernator has.
@S3OL What didn't you like about POP? I have only played a few levels but I love what I played.
Cybernator is one of my all-time favorite games. It has aged beautifully.
Stargazer commented on SNES Classic Cybernator Is Suiting Up For An A...:
This is one of my favorite games of all time.
Stargazer commented on Review: Siesta Fiesta (3DS eShop):
There seems to be something a little off with the 3D effect. Sometimes it messes with my eyes on the right side of the screen. I'm not sure if I'm just tilting the system on accident or what...anybody else experiencing this?
Stargazer commented on Review: Bike Rider DX2: Galaxy (3DS eShop):
I do not understand why people like these games. Is this the first auto-runner that you've played? The first one was incredibly dull.
Stargazer commented on Renegade Kid's Jools Watsham Wants To Bring Re...:
I imported this but didn't have the patience to get through the detective game even with a guide. The action-based titles are great, though.
Stargazer commented on Review: Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails (Wi...:
I haven't gotten super far but I assume some levels have a power up that fits that description.
I don't know what control options you need. Movement is on analog or d-pad, B jumps, Y shoots, L button changes weapons, minus button changes views, right analog moves the camera a bit for the zoomed in view.
The 'needless tips' try to take advantage of the dual screen set-up. You can use the zoomed in view exclusively if you like.
If you can show me a flash game with gameplay mechanics this good and level design this clever then please let me know. Everything seems to be designed with the utmost care to me.
Stargazer commented on Moon Chronicles Lands on the 3DS eShop in Nort...:
For a remake of a mediocre game it is a bit too expensive. The only thing the original had going for it was a nice atmosphere and the remote control vehicle thing.
Stargazer commented on Review: Abyss (Wii U eShop):
Yeah, the music is great.
This game is very simple yet can be very addictive and mesmerizing. I think it's worth the $2, and the 2-player mode is fun.
I agree the jdarrell that the framerate could stand to be smoothed out a bit but it's not that bad.
Stargazer commented on Mario Kart 8 Club Nintendo Promotion Offers a ...:
Wow, this is awesome. Pikmin 3 or Wind Waker HD....hmmmmm.
Stargazer commented on Review: Mario Golf: World Tour (3DS):
Maybe some talk about the graphics, 3D effect, and sound would have been nice. Unless I missed that somewhere.
Stargazer commented on Review: Flowerworks HD: Follie's Adventure (Wi...:
@Cathousemaster Yes, it would.
I'd also love to see the overworld scrolling smoothed out but I'll take what I can get.
I was actually hoping you'd release this on Vita and make use of the rear touch pad. I think it would work nicely (with front touch options as well, of course).
@accc You can hop in as a second player and do it that way and just move player 1 to the edge of the screen. Still dumb.
Also, you can't pause during the pollination sections. Pretty amateurish stuff.
I got this because I really liked the Wii version and wanted to support the dev. I am baffled that you can't use Wii remote controls in single player. Maybe they will patch it, but with the no-doubt low sales I don't see it happening.
Stargazer commented on Nintendo Download: 17th April (North America):
Don't dismiss Flowerworks, folks. It's a seriously great game.
Stargazer commented on Castlevania Composer Michiru Yamane Joins Flyi...:
It is no joke that Flying Hamster is absolutely one of my favorite shmups in recent years. Check it out on Vita / psp / ios if you haven't already. I assume it's on Steam for cheap, too.
Stargazer commented on Interview: Nocturnal on Flowerworks HD's Bloss...:
Great game! Hopefully more people will notice it this time around.
Stargazer commented on Month Of Kong: The Making Of Donkey Kong Country:
Killer Instinct 2 SNES....finished but never released? Wrrrrrrrrryyyyy
Stargazer commented on Console Wars Book Paves The Way For Movie Writ...:
This could be amazing and hilarious as a movie. I thought This Is The End was damn funny.
Stargazer commented on Shinji Mikami Prefers The Sega Version Of Alad...:
I liked both. The Genesis version had the better graphics, animation, and music. But the SNES version, imo, is more fun to play and has held up better over the years gameplay-wise.
Stargazer commented on Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Only Sell...:
I can't believe that some people are still sticking their heads in the sand. And apparently want others to actually shove their heads in the sand.
Stargazer commented on Flowerworks HD to Burst Into Life on the Wii U...:
I really liked this one on Wiiware. Agreed about the difficulty issues as mentioned by Reala
Stargazer commented on Remake Request: ActRaiser:
Loved this game. I still love this game.
I enjoyed the sequel as well (so pretty) but I never beat it. It was too damn hard, and I missed the world-building aspects.
Stargazer commented on Radirgy De Gojaru Website Shows Off The Firepo...:
Hope it comes over. I am shmup-starved on 3DS.
Stargazer commented on Exclusive: Shin'en Multimedia Bringing Art of ...:
I'm sure it will be great, but I have it on 3DS.
New games please
Stargazer commented on ReVeN's Kickstarter is Funded, With GamePad Fe...:
I'll be buying this. Thanks for supporting Wii U Blugrave.
Stargazer commented on Scram Kitty And His Buddy On Rails Is Blasting...:
Day one for me too
Stargazer commented on Shin'en Multimedia Lining Up Another Wii U Gam...:
@JaxonH Shin'en may as well try their hand at a rail shooter while they're at it. Scar Effects? Cluster Rocks? Stare Box?
2D shmup please! I'm dying here! Preferably one with lots of power-ups and stuff.
Stargazer commented on Video: New Siesta Fiesta Gameplay Lights Up Th...:
Nice to see you here! I knew you guys sounded familiar and I just realized that you made Tongue Tied. That game is great. Hope to try this one out soon.
Clever, and looks pretty. I'm in.
Stargazer commented on Nintendo Confirms "Super Indie Connection Sale...:
Giana is pretty cool. Be warned that although it's beautiful, the framerate isn't terribly smooth. Could definitely be more pretty in motion, a la Rayman.
And they haven't patched in the fact that there's no gamepad audio. Supposedly they were working on this last September but it never got done.
Stargazer commented on Talking Point: Is There A Future For The Wii U...:
The Wii took off because kids could go to their friends' house and use the Wii remote as a tennis racket or a baseball bat or a sword or a steering wheel. Then they would bug their parents to buy it for them.
The Gamepad holds no such allure.
Stargazer commented on Kickstarter Campaign Launches For ReVeN:
Maybe if Nintendo would make another ******* 2D Metroid then we'd see fewer copycats.
Stargazer commented on Review: Unepic (Wii U eShop):
Really liking this game so far. The jumping bothered me at first (I like to be able to control the height of my jumps) but I got over it. Kinda gives it a Super Ghouls and Ghosts vibe.
