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

@C-Olimar @TG1 @Mystemo I've finally been able to check myself, and it is still 1,000 points for me as well. Still trying to figure out whether my source confirming 500 means different things in different areas or was a mistake or what. I've reached out to MonkeyPaw and will update this story once I receive a response.

Again, many thinks for bringing this to my attention! I always want to be accurate here.



TimLatshaw commented on Review: Yumi's Odd Odyssey (3DS eShop):

Sheesh, Morgan. I assumed it was going to be good, but did you have to evoke the Holy Trinity of Creative and Somewhat Under-the-Radar Classics in the conclusion? They... they speak to me...



TimLatshaw commented on Zero Escape Series Director Struggling to Find...:

@DarkKirby I don't think he's ashamed of a Kickstarter. It's a possibility, but it looks like a company would have to be set up in another country to do so, as it doesn't look like a Kickstarter project can be based in Japan at this time. This is likely why Mighty No. 9's project is based from comcept USA.

I may be wrong about this, however. Have to check a bit more.

UPDATE: I do notice some Kickstarter projects have been based in Japan, so this is somewhat puzzling now. The director initially believed he couldn't do it:

It may be a factor of presenting an English Kickstarter page, after digging a little more. Either way, it seems some work would have to be done or connections made to get on Kickstarter but, like I said, it's still a possibility one way or another.



TimLatshaw commented on Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Finally H...:

@Uberchu "Japan did not receive similar treatment, but according to Famitsu, the game will finally see a release for the Wii U and PS3 on 15th May, about 18 months later. No word has been given for versions on other systems, including the 3DS."

Is this what you were looking for?



TimLatshaw commented on Pokémon X & Y Beta Competition Coming to Glob...:

@Retro_on_theGo The wording of the announcement doesn't say anything about registration involving participation in a previous tournament; just that some have already qualified through their rankings on the Global Showdown. However, the specific details for registering on Jan. 31 have not been given, so there's still a possibility they'll require that, I suppose. Would seem a bit rotten to not tell people of that beforehand, though.



TimLatshaw commented on Review: Unepic (Wii U eShop):

@hlime You are right about the screenshots. It looks like we were given the wrong shots to work with, unfortunately, and will be trying to get shots that better represent the Wii U version.

@XCWarrior The uncertainty made you check though, didn't it. ; )



TimLatshaw commented on Review: Sonic Lost World (Wii U):

@Peek-a-boo Nope, not deliberately forgetting about them. I just hadn't seen them yet. Still, given all the reviews we've mentioned so far, that's two N-Life is 2+ points above, two N-Life is 2 points within, and one N-Life is 2 points BELOW.



TimLatshaw commented on Review: Sonic Lost World (Wii U):

@Peek-a-boo Let's see. So far I see IGN at a 5.6 and Polygon at a 6. Our review isn't 2 points higher than either of those. Now Famitsu, giving it straight 9's; that's definitely higher.

But it's not the point, is it. The point is that reviewers have different opinions and different ways of scoring games, and to try to Metacritic it all and just crunch numbers instead of taking the time to review and consider the text of each argument to your own tastes is not really serving yourself well as an informed consumer in the end.
