I've been playing video games for my entire life. It would be insane to stop now.

Swiket commented on Mario Maker Japanese Website Points to Inclusi...:

The editor should be as versatile enough to literally let me recreate every Super Mario Bros 3 level. Can't wait.

EDIT: Actually, this probably won't be feasible since they're still selling those old games. But either way, I want it to be versatile. At least let us use pipes.



Swiket commented on Review: Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire...:

"Too much water" is a legit criticism IMO. It was a common criticism for Ruby/Sapphire and while remakes should obviously be faithful to the original, they shouldn't be at the expense of fun.

Also R/S/E was probably handled HMs the worst, so it's obvious to see how it would be frustrating after B/W and X/Y streamlined that stuff.



Swiket commented on Nintendo's Unity Presentation Confirms Critica...:

@accc Ehhh "corruption" is kinda harsh. I think a lot of reviewers forget the privilege that they have to get game codes for free. $20 might be a lot for some people. Also there are people who hate on it just because of the subject matter.

I played this on the Personal Computer. Some points:

  • There is no combat, enemies, or death. You mostly just walk around a house and interact with stuff to find written notes and such, like Dear Esther.
  • It took me about two hours to finish it, and I like to fully explore areas and look for secrets. And the game is $20 on PC (I bought it on sale).
  • It is possible to complete this game in literally minutes, even accidentally. The way you explore the house depends on finding notes that suggest where you should go next (you have a map). So if you know exactly where to go to trigger the ending, you could finish it in less than two minutes. I guess the developers wanted to hold realism above preventing sequence breaking.
  • There is pretty much no reason to replay it. Although I never rewatch movies or re-read books either.
  • The game covers topics that you don't really see a lot in games. I don't want to spoil it but it's unique.

Personally I would wait for a sale if it does launch at $20, but just know what you're buying isn't very "game-y".
