TG1 commented on Smash Cat Heroes:

This game is awful. I'd be amazed if NL scored it more than a 3.



TG1 commented on BurgerTime World Tour Meats its End on WiiWare...:

@C-Olimar That would be cool. Every dev and publisher I've ever spoken with or interviewed have said they can't adjust prices for WiiWare/DSiWare releases. (it was one of the biggest causes for praise when Nintendo switched their policies for the eShop!) Would be nice to see things change though, even at this very late date.



TG1 commented on BurgerTime World Tour Meats its End on WiiWare...:

"Anyone who wants to grab World Tour before the grills shut down can pick it up through the Wii Shop Channel for half off, or 500 points"

The promotion doesn't apply to the WiiWare version - it's still 1,000 points.



TG1 commented on Review: Kung Fu Rabbit (3DS eShop):

Well, Kung Fu Rabbit does repeatedly prompt you to buy powerups from the dojo with carrots - it carries over from the mobile release, and feels unnecessary. I don't need to be told after each level, particularly early on when powerups aren't even needed to make progress. Some may think it a minor annoyance, and perhaps it is ultimately. But it screams mobile port through and through.



TG1 commented on Review: Kung Fu Rabbit (3DS eShop):

If you do decide to get this game, definitely go with the HD visuals of the Wii U. This 3DS port doesn't use 3D in anyway, despite the fact that the levels are so well suited for it.



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

Bought this when it was on sale recently. Took me about 1 1/2 hours to beat. It's a fun game in spite of its short length, and I really enjoyed it.



TG1 commented on Enjoy Gaming Confirms Zombie Blaster Removed f...:

@Morpheel I agree, Jewel Adventures is a good game. I've never had any glitches with it either ... and based on every other review and comment I've read about the game, I'm not convinced anyone else has either.

Pyramids is another Enjoy Gaming title that got pretty good reviews. I think NL gave it a 7



TG1 commented on Review: Tales to Enjoy! The Ugly Duckling (DSi...:

"The efforts divided among multiple projects should have been focused on making one competent title, instead. But regrettably, that’s not how it went down."

These were actually bundled together as a retail release prior, and are just now being broke up for the eShop. I wonder if some compromises (cuts in speech, fequent load times) are the result of a move from tangible media to the limited memory of DSiWare?



TG1 commented on Review: Myst (3DS):

I appreciate the review. One question ... is this basically a pot of the DS original from 2007? Or is it a port of the updated DS version published by Storm City Games in 2010?



TG1 commented on Review: AiRace Speed (3DS eShop):

@WinterWarm I agree it is a bit confusing. He seems to be comparing this game to both AiRace & AiRace Tunnel equally, rather than just the latter. That unique perspective probably accounts for the 7, as they are clearly very different games.



TG1 commented on Review: Letter Challenge (DSiWare):

Actually the soundtrack has (at least) 3 different unique tunes. You can select them from your profile by going to theme. This also changes the background graphics.

Word Wizard 3D for the 3DS is this same game, with a few mild enhancements.



TG1 commented on Review: DuckTales: Remastered (Wii U eShop):

@moroboshi Not sure what review(s) you've read so far, but your statement isn't accurate. The game has gotten a bunch of positive reviews! You suggest checking Metacritic ... well, the game (so far) has gotten 80 out of 100 from critics, and 8.4 from users. Checking Metacritic shows that you are mistaken.



TG1 commented on Feature: When it Comes to Games, What's in a N...:

Fun article, although I certainly disagree with Resident Evil ... at least you admit the controversy in your claim. I remember the "iconic name" getting made fun of quite a bit back in 1996. The game was a success in spite of it's goofy name, not because of it. Biohazard certainly makes more sense to the story & settings of the original games ... score 1 for Japan!



TG1 commented on Miyamoto: Fresh Experiences Make A New Game, N...:

Certainly within Nintendo, we have people internally who are saying, "Well, we have our old characters from our old games, and that's old IP, and we should think about creating new IP."

It's one thing if it's just from the gaming fans ... but when Nintendo's own staff are trying to encourage new IP's, it's time the Big N start giving it more serious consideration.



TG1 commented on Pachter: Nintendo Has Lost Its "Mojo":

It seems like every time Patcher opens his mouth about Nintendo (even if what he says is the same thing he's been saying for months) Nintendo Life decides it is news ... I join in with the majority of your reader's who've commented in asking, is this really neccesary? Or are these articles simply a means for more comments which are usually solicited anyway?



TG1 commented on Iwata Says He Didn't Commit to Stepping Down O...:

"At the time, Satoru Iwata described it as a personal commitment, which was widely interpreted — sensibly considering the context — to mean that Nintendo's President was making the target an integral part of him retaining his post."

I don't think it was sensible interpretation to begin with. In any event, I'm not surprised.



TG1 commented on Nintendo Defends Influx of New Mario Titles:

"You could call all the games that we're making here new IP in the sense that they're new gameplay experiences. They just happen to also have the IP that people associate with."

Few gamers will though. Even a lifelong Nintendo fan like myself feels the market is oversaturated with Mario games. If Nintendo is going to make the effort to make "new gameplay experiences" (and I'd argue very little is new in the NSMB series) why not go the distance and create some genuinely new IP's? Even if Nintendo feels the need to use exixting IP's as a crutch due to financial fears, aren't there others besides Mario? I mean, how many Mario games have been announced (or have already been released ) for the Wii U & 3DS already?
