TheItalianBaptist commented on The Letter Version 1.1 Update Has a New Trailer:

Saw the video...I don't get it. What new creatures? Are we talking like a slender sorta thing where there's an actual challenge? And what's with the battery meter on the top right hand screen? Looks like off-tv play I hope but could be a limit for the flashlight



TheItalianBaptist commented on Review: IQ Test (Wii U eShop):

This game will probably be more notable for the invention/popularization of "miiverse marketing" - I have yet to see a developer get so connected and personal with his audience. That's the main reason people are buying, not so much the content of the game.

@Maxime I definitely appreciate your doing all the legal research (so I don't have to :). Why did the team add stuff from castlevania though when there wasn't a precedent for it like the other stuff you changed? Don't get me wrong - I totally dig dracula's castle, I just don't wanna see u guys in hotter water than necessary :)



TheItalianBaptist commented on Feature: How A Team Of Dedicated Fans Is Fixin...:

Really like both project m and brawl+. Idk if "fixing brawl" is the best choice of terms though because the pmbr goes out of its way to not come off as "brawl sux we can do better" trolls. As a future fan studies scholar I believe there is a place for fan games like this as a complement to the official ones, not a replacement. Because you need a copy of brawl to load project m, this seems like the perfect compromise to me.



TheItalianBaptist commented on Weirdness: These iPhone Mock-Ups Suggest That ...:

Nintendo has actually shown that an endless runner with the style of super mario bros. can work - the Mario clock for dsiware. I'm not suggesting that nintendo port their old games onto the iPhone but something like that might just work - as an "advertisement" like nintendo was talking about rather than an actual game. I like what @randomname19 and @nathandelune said too - warioware and brain age would be perfect - again as a supplement, not a replacement.



TheItalianBaptist commented on The Legend of Zelda and Pokémon Are Doing Bus...:

Had the original pokemon monopoly, based mainly on the anime and one of the few versions to have color pieces instead of pewter. Pikachu and the gang are currently kicking it with snoopy and Charlie Brown in the peanuts edition. I'll have to check out the new one :)



TheItalianBaptist commented on A Sonic Boom Game is Dashing Towards Wii U and...:

two thoughts

1) Getting a "Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures" vibe because the premises (classic characters getting CGI shows and games based on them) are so similar - I want to see a game based off of a show based off of a game succeed, I'm a sucker for licensed products

2) Whoever says "this is paradise" (i'm assuming knuckles) - is that STEVE BLUM???*

*I don't endorse Cowboy Bebop in its entirety but Blum did an amazing job with Spike and Amon :)



TheItalianBaptist commented on Review: EDGE (3DS eShop):

The only thing that bugs me about this game is the constant color-changing and flashing lights. Not to sound offensive but I felt like i was gonna have a seizure. Any way to turn that off?



TheItalianBaptist commented on Review: Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures (Wi...:

Pleasantly surprised, considering it's not only a game for an older character with a mixed platformer history but also based off a licensed cartoon. I wonder if pac's moveset is being expanded in light of a certain company working on a certain fighting game too :)



TheItalianBaptist commented on Feature: Great Nintendo 64 Multiplayer Games Y...:

Dr. Mario 64 came late in the system's life but it still made for some great multiplayer matches (even though most of mine were against 3 CPUs :P ). There was also the original tag battle mode in the pokemon stadiums and of course dem mini games :) and I still think mickey's speedway USA is underrated.



TheItalianBaptist commented on Hyperkin's RetroN 4 To Support SNES, Genesis, ...:

I dig the Retron gaming consoles, but I feel like I've invested far too much into the Virtual Console (for Wii and soon for Wii U) to buy yet ANOTHER system to pour my money and retro gaming passion into...guess I'm gonna have to look forward to playing GBA games on the Gamepad....darn :)



TheItalianBaptist commented on Wheel of Fortune:

Any plans of actually reviewing this and Jeopardy? Another Nintendo console, another iteration of these two "classics" ;)
