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.

TG1 commented on Meme Run is Coming to Troll Your Wii U Very Soon:

@Tuosev No need to get so rude when defending your opinion. By your logic, every game ever released on the NES is good. The Seal of Quality did indeed have meaning, but revisionist history has turned it into something it wasn't.

TG1 commented on Review: Hideaways: Foggy Valley (3DS eShop):

Somebody should count up all the hidden object games on the eShop - they've become their own genre at this point!

This game is in the same mold as City Mysteries and Gothic Masquerade. If you liked either of those, you'll probably like this. It's overpriced however.

@6ch6ris6 At just $2.99, it's like the game is already on sale. Not sure how 6 hours of gameplay is "so short" either (not including replay) but to each his own I suppose. Your loss if you pass on it.

TG1 commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer?:

Like many have already said (and no doubt will continue to do so) the inclusion of Wario Land on this list is absolutely ridiculous!

I'd go Mario 3 for the 2D games, and a tie between 64 & Sunshine for 3D ones.

TG1 commented on Review: ZaciSa's Last Stand (Wii U eShop):

Just picked up this game for $1.49 - I'm really enjoying it!

"The only unit that really stands out as being even with mentioning is the Drone"

I wonder if you meant to put worth instead of with?

TG1 commented on Review: SHUT THE BOX (Wii U eShop):

This doesn't match Blok Drop U or Poker Dice Solitaire Future, but for just 99 cents everyone should download it.

I like how I own the RCMADIAX trilogy for less than $5. Small quality titles at budget prices. Now bring on Super Robo Mouse!

TG1 commented on Take Pleasure In The Stupidity Of Your Friends...:

In the case of IQ Test, I think the developers own view on the game's replay value is a fair one to go on. I'll leave it at that ... except to say that I still replay Super Mario Bros. to this day.

Again, glad you are enjoying IQ Test as much as you are. I've no reason to return to it now that the solutions are known, but perhaps I can find plenty of friends who will enjoy checking the game out. Time will tell.

TG1 commented on Take Pleasure In The Stupidity Of Your Friends...:

@weirdwonz Game play time isn't as big of a concern for titles with strong replayability. IQ Test (by the devs own admission) doesn't have replay value by traditional definition. I think that's the point many are trying to convey.

You seem to really like the game, which is cool! It'll be interesting to see how a new audience responds with it's move to Wii U, and all it entails.

On the Nook this is just 99 cents with multiple tests. On the Wii U this is $4-$5 with just 20 questions (only 1 test). I can't see a justification to charge five times as much, especially if we are getting less content.

TG1 commented on Review: Strike Force Foxx (3DS eShop):

"Curiously, while it's possible to accidentally kill hostages with friendly fire, the enemies will never take anybody out."

This isn't true. If the chopper gets a hostage between them and and enemy, the hostage can be taken out by enemy fire. Granted this is easy enough to avoid, but the fact remains that enemies can and will take out hostages on occasion.

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

@DiscoGentleman Not the best example really. The Letter isn't a good game, but we knew that going into it at least. $1.99 failed crowdfunding game - adjust expectations accordingly.

Knowing the context of a poor game doesn't mean defending it.

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

@reali-tglitch Actually TreeFall did a couple games before Night Detective (which is a recent release) but your point is well taken. A 3D game on a HD console is a step up from simple PC games.

The first batch of DLC's already been submitted (and will be free) so hopefully it'll be decent.

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

This game needs work for sure!

One of the areas I'll defend it on though is the inverted controls. I see all these "expert" gamers on Miiverse saying how hard they are. Sorry, but if you can't handle inverted controls in a first person game, you've no business calling yourself an expert!

TG1 commented on Review: Internal Invasion (Wii U eShop):

I'd hate to see the NL comments section turn into a place where we can't calmly disagree. I know my own issues with this review aren't even so much the score, but the lack of detail. It reads rushed and incomplete, unlike most of Ron's reviews.

TG1 commented on Review: Internal Invasion (Wii U eShop):

The slow down is bad for sure, but no way does this release deserve a 3! This review seems to be so focused on negatives, that it skips over entire big elements of the game! This might not be a great download, but by no stretch of the imagination should it be considered a poor one.

TG1 commented on Review: Turtle Tale (3DS eShop):

@WaveBoy Have you played this game yet? I'm not saying it's a great game, but I've at least beaten it. I hope you aren't just basing your strongly expressed opinions on this review. For all of Jake's fair comments, he did fail to touch on literally half the game! Anyway, just my two cents. I hate to see insults traded, especially over a budget indie game.

I do agree with you on Zack & Wiki though - lots of potential for a sequel!

TG1 commented on Review: Turtle Tale (3DS eShop):

@Erixsan Yes. The plot of the game is that the island is invaded by pirate monkeys. Inexplicable indeed ... unless you watch the first 30 seconds of the game, lol.

TG1 commented on Review: Color Zen (Wii U eShop):

@erv Other than the budget price, Abyss is absolutely nothing like Color Zen! Not sure why Jake referenced it repeatedly, but rest assured they are as different as night and day.

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

@Unit_DTH Compared to this Wii U release, I thought the controls were much tighter on DSiWare. Even with 1 hit kills, I think the difficulty was more balanced on the handheld. I still like this version (especially at that price!) but even with some additions I can't say it's better.

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

I like this game, but anyone who's played Abyss on DSiWare will have issues with the loose controls. Abyss on DSiWare had very tight and responsive controls - not sure what happened here, but they are far worse. Thankfully you can hit the walls now.

TG1 commented on Review: Bit Boy!! ARCADE (3DS eShop):

@KaiserGX Well, he does mention having occasional issues with the teleporter. I've never had any trouble with them, but that's one example. He also brings up the timer - "technically" it could be classified as broken (although it does go against how most would understand the term since the impact on the gameplay is trivial ). I think when a review is this far apart from the majority, criticism is to be expected ... so long as we target the words, and not the writer(s) themselves.
