TG1 commented on Review: Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash (3DS):

I'm surprised to see how many gamers will decide to pass on a title based on a single review. At a minimum, it's a premature reaction.

Based on everything I've seen and read, I'll probably be grabbing this game before the end of the year.



TG1 commented on Mario History: New Super Mario Bros. 2 & U - 2012:

@RainbowGazelle Not sure for all of them off the top of my head, but at least for NSMB2 you just need to click on the options banner at the bottom of the screen. Under 'Controls' change the default to Type 2. Give it a try, if you're like me you'll find the setup superior. Like @eaglesfly76 said, the controls really are tight, and the more comfortable setting really lets that be shown.



TG1 commented on Mario History: New Super Mario Bros. 2 & U - 2012:

@RainbowGazelle Certainly you're allowed to dislike the games. Calling the controls abysmal though reflects curiously on you, especially when your complaint is so minor. Simply adjust the controls so you don't have to hold Y - that's what I do, and it makes the game(s) very comfortable.



TG1 commented on Review: The Fall (Wii U eShop):

Got this in the Humble Bundle. Amazing story! I can't wait for the sequel.

Respect to the reviewers opinion, but I'm so glad this was not a text only game. The voice acting was terrific, and such a huge asset to the experience!



TG1 commented on ​Skylanders SuperChargers Melds Mario Kart, ...:

Not sure why NL used that word to be honest.

The press release said "a different, unique adventure" for the Wii & 3DS. Not 100% certain if that means that those versions will be esentially the same or not.



TG1 commented on Review: Runny Egg (3DS eShop):

To those calling this game a runner, it isn't. The trailer may make you believe otherwise (it did me) but this is a traditional platformer, and not at all like a runner. It's pretty decent too, certainly worth $1.99.



TG1 commented on Review: uWordsmith (Wii U eShop):

Good review Tim. A real shame there isn't more content included. I hope DLC will make the game less limited - I would've gladly waited if it meant a more complete game.



TG1 commented on Review: Battleminer (3DS eShop):

I've been playing this game for a couple months now, and have enjoyed it a great deal. To be fair though, I do lack familiarity with Minecraft. Nevertheless, I recommend Battleminer - I think it's lots of fun!



TG1 commented on Video: TreeFall Studios Releases Its First Eve...:

@Quorthon "But don't act like others can't express their opinions and discontent with this drivel."

I would never act that way. I'm only asking that people have informed opinions, and that they show respect towards those who disagree with them. In this case, those expressing opinions that they enjoy certain games others hate. We can certainly agree to disagree and be polite about it.



TG1 commented on Video: TreeFall Studios Releases Its First Eve...:

Fair enough I suppose, as long as you recognize what you classify as enjoyment may very well different from others. In the case of Maze at least it's clear that's the case.

Apologies if If I took you out of context. Your statement is pretty dogmatic though. No hard feelings, just very different points of view evidently, which is fine. All the best.



TG1 commented on Video: TreeFall Studios Releases Its First Eve...:

@MoonKnight7 "I say absolutely not, and that from an ethical standpoint, it's ripping off people's hard earned money."

You do realize that people are free to either purchase or ignore these games. How exactly are TreeFall, RCMADIAX, or others ripping people off?

Maze is $2,99 and well worth it imho. Toss n Go is 99 cents, again well worth it. You are free to ignore these games, but others choose to purchase them, and end up enjoying them. It really is that simple.



TG1 commented on Video: TreeFall Studios Releases Its First Eve...:

@KoiTenchi By that logic, are you holding a new indie studio to the same standards as Nintendo? Surely you see the difference!

Nintendo is at a whole different level for a multitude of reasons. We hold them at far higher standards, which warrants different criticisms.

Speaking for myself of course, but I imagine that's what was originally meant.



TG1 commented on Video: TreeFall Studios Releases Its First Eve...:

Send a message with your wallet and don't buy the games if they don't appeal to you once they're finished. We certainly don't need Nintendo stopping content - that's just a step back toward the days of WiiWare, when most of us complained the opposite.

Maze is a pretty good game btw. I won't defend The Letter, but Maze is enjoyable and worth checking out.



TG1 commented on Review: Maze (Wii U eShop):

@Oragami I still have fun with Blok Drop U & Poker Dice Solitaire Future. And both Blok Drop X Twisted Fusion & Toss n Go are good newer games as well.

Maze has fun bonus levels, one which is based on Blok Drop U.



TG1 commented on Review: Maze (Wii U eShop):

@MoonKnight7 The textures are fine. The worst culprit was a neon colored level with flashing lights. It was challenging, but a bit much.

@RCMADIAX Yeah, there is a good amount of content and enjoyment here for just $2.99. I really like the soundtrack also.



TG1 commented on Review: Maze (Wii U eShop):

I've actually found this game rather enjoyable. It has issues for sure, but all things considered I think it's pretty well developed, especially for a budget game.

While I definitely don't agree with Dave on the score, he is absolutely spot on about certain mazes having the potential to make you ill. It happened to me! Thankfully it was limited to just two mazes in the second world.

Maze has been a pleasant surprise, and I'd recommend it to anyone, so long they have strong stomachs.



TG1 commented on Year in Development: Nyamyam:

Tengami was one of my favorite eShop releases this past year!

That said, a late, overpriced, stuttering port of a very short game is going to have struggles lighting up the sales chart.

I strongly recommend Tengami, in fact I consider it a must play! I'd love to see it get a permanent price drop down the line - $5.99 would be ideal.



TG1 commented on Review: Meme Run (Wii U eShop):

I wonder how many times Lee fell through solid ground? Most vids I've seen show this as a recurring problem! No real quality is evident here.



TG1 commented on RCMADIAX Gearing Up for Two Wii U eShop Releas...:

Sad to see so much judgement passed on games that nobody has played yet.

I'm unsure about Toss N Go, but Blok Drop X Twisted Fusion looks great. Blok Drop was quite a fun little budget game, and Twisted Fusion was one of my favorite Wii U Kickstarters from the past year.



TG1 commented on Review: Tested With Robots! (Wii U eShop):

@Kirk The Seal of Quality does not mean what most people seem to think. The revisionist history it's taking is getting ridiculous. The NES (as much as I still love it) was filled with crap that boasted that very Seal.



TG1 commented on Review: Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker (Wii U):

Nice review. While I do agree that the primary complaint Thomas had was rather odd and probably misguided, he at least attempted to explain his opinions. Everything was still well written in spite of that curiosity, and 8 is a good score. The review was an entertaining read, and the game itself is very entertaining.



TG1 commented on Review: My First Songs (3DS eShop):

Your biggest issue with the game might be moot - were you not aware that a click of the tv icon lets you watch each and every animation in full, with lyrics displayed?

I hate to see a game lose points for issues that aren't actually there. No action is missed, and the implementation here isn't just practical, it's ideal. Perhaps an edit would be appropriate, do you agree?



TG1 commented on Renegade Kid’s 3DS Metroidvania Title Xeodri...:

To everyone asking about Trasurenauts ... Renegade Kid has commented on it numerous times! Heck, Nintendo Life has even reported on it. It was delayed, but is still coming.

I was let down at first with the delay, don't get me wrong, but if it means we get another awesome game besides it'll be worth it. Trailer for Xeodrifter looks great, and I can't wait to play it!



TG1 commented on Review: Sportsball (Wii U eShop):

@Emblem No AI opponents sadly, but Too DX have talked of upgrading the scant single player experience so there's reason for optimism.

Great multiplayer game, and good review!



TG1 commented on Review: PING 1.5+ (Wii U eShop):

This review is well written, although I strongly disagree that "there's too much luck".

I also hope to see a sequel built off constructive criticisms. There is lots of potential indeed!



TG1 commented on Review: Turtle Tale (Wii U eShop):

This review is fair enough, but I really enjoyed this game.

The second quest is far better, and recommended for those who are up to the challenge.

At just $2.99, I can't imagine why any platformer fan wouldn't want to take a chance on Turtle Tale.



TG1 commented on Review: Paper Monsters Recut (Wii U eShop):

This is a very nice game. I enjoyed the review, though surprised that the numerous bugs/glitches weren't brought to the fore. Thankfully the devs know of them, and are patching and such.
