Stu13 commented on Nintendo Download: 17th April (North America):

I now have to decide which system to get SMB3 on, so I can't vote yet. I hadn't even heard of Smash Cat Heroes, but I just watched the video and it looks like something I'd be into. For that price I might pounce on it.



Stu13 commented on Nintendo Provides Some Context to 2013's Tomod...:

I live in the southern United States, so I have more than enough bigotry and hatred towards homosexuals surrounding me on a daily basis. I absolutely DO NOT need it here on this site as well. With that said, I am not purchasing this game now. It's a life simulator that won't let people simulate their actual lives in a very major way. Kinda defeats the purpose.



Stu13 commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

I am very much a progressive liberal in my private life. A white male who is a big supporter of equal rights for everyone who is not one or either of those things.

That being said, I still frickin' love this game.

It's a video game populated with make-believe characters. You'd have to be pretty sick to hold women to some sort of exaggerated, cartoonish standard of beauty because of Senran Kagura Burst.



Stu13 commented on Nintendo Download: 13th March (North America):

I couldn't wait. I popped by my house on my daily trip to the post office from work and set Steamworld to download in sleep mode so it would be waiting for me when I get in later. eShop sales will be the death of me.



Stu13 commented on The Keep Getting Ready to Explore the 3DS eSho...:

This sounds very interesting. Just too bad it's not based on the F. Paul Wilson book of the same name which centered around NAZI VAMPIRES. There is a movie version of it but I'd suggest staying away from that as it is really, really awful.



Stu13 commented on Amazon Lists Transformers: Rise Of The Dark Sp...:

Despite it's flaws, I rather enjoyed the first Prime game (and I adore that series) so I wish they had kept that going with Transformers: Prime BEAST WARS. Rise of the Predacons, baby. One of these Michael Bay Transformers games would have to get seriously amazing reviews to get me interested.



Stu13 commented on Remake Request: ActRaiser:

I rented this as a kid expecting nothing but a platforming action game and my mind was completely blown when I played it. Once I was old enough to have a job, it was one of the first few SNES games that I bought for myself at the local flea market.



Stu13 commented on Nintendo Still Working On Bringing Game Boy Ad...:

I just played through Super Metroid for the first time in years and it's really got me itching to play Zero Mission and Fusion. But I'm just going to end up buying a second hand GBA because I'm not delusional enough to think that these will hit the 3DS anytime soon, if ever. I would love to give that money to Nintendo instead, but it ain't happening.



Stu13 commented on Review: Castlevania II: Simon's Quest (Wii U e...:

This was the most blackmetal NES game and pretty much the impetus of the goth phase I went through as a young man. And for that, I am eternally grateful. It's all devil horns and unending horror and howling at the moon and I absolutely love it.



Stu13 commented on La-Mulana 2 Emerges Through a Kickstarter Camp...:

Oh, man. The Wiiware version of the original is one of my favorites. I still get the itch to play it at least once a week. I am majorly bummed that the sequel coming to Wii U seems so unlikely. I'll just keep my fingers crossed for a 3DS release, I suppose.



Stu13 commented on Mario And Zelda On Mobile Could Bring New Play...:

They'd have to be really careful about which games to port over. My mom loves Candy Crush and Angry Birds, so just for the sake of research I asked her to have a go at the VC version of Legend Of Zelda. She was getting slaughtered and was completely confused as to what she was supposed to be doing.
"You just need to explore, Mom."
"But they don't tell you ANYTHING."
I think it is safe to say that a sizable chunk of mobile-only gamers would actually be turned off on the idea of owning a Nintendo system by some of the original titles. She had considerably more success with the first two SMB games, to the point of inquiring as to whether Nintendo still made games similar to them. Risky proposition here, folks. It seems like it is equally likely to go over like gangbusters as it would be to blow up in their faces.



Stu13 commented on Book Focused on EarthBound's Development and L...:

Maybe he could do a series of guest columns here on NL about SNES GAME. I'd sure like to hear about his work on SNES GAME. I'm sure there are some more than interesting stories to be told about the localization of SNES GAME, being so quirky as it is. Heck, it might even peak interest for SNES GAME in some folks who wouldn't have picked it up otherwise.



Stu13 commented on Nintendo President Satoru Iwata "Has Earned Th...:

The talk of getting Sony and MS fanboys on board is pure fantasy. They've dug their trenches and are happy in them (I use the term 'happy' very loosely). The market needed is the same one that bought the Wii. Putting out a mediocre PC in a console box and 'filling the screen with blood' is absolutely not the answer.
