TheDavyStar commented on Video: Let This Xenoblade Chronicles X Battle ...:

Glad to hear that Xenoblade Chronicles X is receiving so much attention from Nintendo UK! I really, really hope it pays off. The internet seems to be abuzz, but at the same time vocal minorities always appear bigger than they want to admit...



TheDavyStar commented on Video: Catch Up With All of the Nintendo Direc...:

It was alright...too much of this we already knew though, such as Fates' third story path, MORE Splatoon maps, Xenoblade, more DLC, and of course, Pokkén Tournament. The new Splatoon maps, Gen 1 Pokémon games for Virtual Console, Twilight Princess...those were cool.




TheDavyStar commented on Parent Trap: ​Does The Wii U Still Make Sens...:

I think that once Nintendo had succeeded in their mission to expand gaming's audience with the Wii and DS, they didn't know where to go next. They made a more gaming-oriented console, but they marketed it towards the millions of kids who got a Wii or DS in the past. But those kids have grown up and likely become more invested in gaming, and those who haven't are into the whole smartphone.tablet thing. As for whether it makes a good choice for families, that depends on how big the household as a whole is into gaming. Me? I like my Wii U. A lot. Because I play videogames and its games are my kind of games.



TheDavyStar commented on Review: Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water (W...:

@fluggy 7 is definitely a good score! Did you you read the review?

"Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water has been put through a wringer of doubt and speculation in the run up to its release, but manages to come out the other side still just as drenched with atmosphere and intrigue as ever. Innovation should give fans that spark of renewed excitement, while newcomers are eased into an excellent horror adventure with plenty of time to learn the mechanics. A bit too much repetition and a few rough edges do mar the experience a little, but that absolutely shouldn't stop you from taking the plunge regardless. The water is lovely."



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

It's not real Chibi-Robo, just like that abomination of an AR Chibi-Robo game. Nintendo, when people say "Bring back Chibi-Robo", they don't mean like this. And if you genuinely can't make a Chibi-Robo game like the ones of old, then I'd rather you didn't/



TheDavyStar commented on Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final is an All-New Ent...:

Great news! I had niggles with SMT IV that it was too easy (You only lose if you're not using the abundance of items the game gives you, and if you are you're cruising through most dungeons). In fact, it's the easiest SMT game, Persona games included, that I've played. I hope a new entry in the series puts that right.



TheDavyStar commented on Rumours and Speculation Stir Over Potential In...:

The concept of an Apple microconsole really interests me. I have an OUYA, which I have a good bit of fun with, but it hardly swayed rhe masses, which is disappointing. Hopefully the power of Apple would being more people to microconsoles. Because they're Apple and people don't need a reason to buy them.



TheDavyStar commented on Review: Wario: Master of Disguise (Wii U eShop...:

I remember when I was younger and not really into videogames, I saw a bajiollion adverts for this. Of course, my childhood mind decided that many adverts meant that tgis game was brilliant. Good that this review sorts it out, then. That said, what happened to all of the Nintendo adverts that used to be on TV? (Though then again I don't watch TV anymore, less so kids' TV.)

@Mogster A quick trip to Google had this to say:

"Both forms appear throughout the English-speaking world, however. In current British news publications, likable appears about once for every six instances of likeable. In American publications, where the word in either spelling is less common than it is elsewhere, it is spelled likeable about a third of the time."

The web page is called "Likeable vs. Likable".



TheDavyStar commented on Review: Devil's Third (Wii U):

I'm surprised by just how many people are enjoying this game. I was originally just set on getting the PC version, but with all of the people having so much fun with the Wii U version,I might just change my mind. I wonder if this game would have had a much higher metacritic score if the single player campaignhad been scrapped.



TheDavyStar commented on GAME Confirms Shovel Knight amiibo:

It looks brilliant, but I feel a bit fobbed off consisering the Playstation and Xbox versions have their own exclusive content for the initial price. Then again, 3DS and Wii U version still have their own exclusive modes, and the fact that the amiibo exists at all shows that Yacht Club give a damn!



TheDavyStar commented on Review: Devil's Third (Wii U):

@Bowser908 You're so right about Famitsu. Rather embarrassing that all the Westerners look to them for early opinions. That said, people in Japan do seem to like the game judging by its Amazon score. My theory is that because the story tries to look clever, involving Western politics, which Japanese players may be unfamiliar with, softens the story's stupidity. On top of this, many japanese gamers don't play any western games other than COD, and as such the clichés of the story may be that less familiar. Additionally, Itagaki's insistence that the game is consistently 30fps suggests that perhaps, just perhaps, Europe received an earlier, buggier version of the code than Japan, which was then distributed as the game's final code.



TheDavyStar commented on Review: Devil's Third (Wii U):

@MagicEmperor "Among choosing sides in game modes, there is a third side known as the "Free Entry" option, which is said to be the option that would appeal to the Lone Wolf type of player"

Whoever wrote that fancies themselves as a journalist, not a regular Wikipedia contributor



TheDavyStar commented on Review: Devil's Third (Wii U):

Guess I'll just get the PC version...

If there was a second Devil's Third game with assured Nintendo dollars behind it, it would be a great opportunity for Valhalla to give us the greate game they meant to create.



TheDavyStar commented on Video: Metroid in Unreal Engine 4 is Shiny and...:

The graphics are nice, but it's the atmosphere and blend of platforming/shooting that matters more. That said, the first person is still milesbeyod what I saw in Other M, though that games was hardly as bad as people would love to believe.
