ToniK commented on Areal Campaign Suspended By Kickstarter:

Now they have a donation website. It would be really sad if they were in fact for real and now it's ruined :P I'm not saying they are but in these internet times it's sometimes next to impossible to get reliable info and when the snowball starts rolling...

ToniK commented on Master Reboot to Arrive on the Wii U eShop on ...:

Metacritic says 59 on PC and 62 on PS3. Seems like a game that has its flaws but if you're gonna like it you're gonna like it. The price is a bit steep but I'm gonna purchase this, either full-priced or from a sale. Looks great and if they gave it a makeover it would be awesome. Probably not though.

ToniK commented on Mario Kart 8 Still Competing in Nordic Region ...:

Finland is a Playstation zone, that's why. As a person in my late twenties I'm the only one I know who has a 3DS and the U. Kids are probably busy playing with tablets and teenagers and adults exclusively play NHL, GTA, CoD, Gran Turismo and some other random "mature" themed games. Well, you can see the list, it's pretty accurate.

Personally, I was never interested in Tomodachi Life. It seems like a social game and being a Nintendo gamer in Finland is not a social thing. It's quite lonely.

Consider this bought. I love the mood and visuals of Abyss and this seems to be on the same page. Also Knytt UG was great. The complex controls also seem like something I'd want to dive in. This type of indie stuff is what it's all about!

ToniK commented on Sony: PS4 Is "Welcoming Back" Wii Owners Who S...:

Well, I'm not "coming back" since I've never owned a Sony or Microsoft console before but I am planning on getting a PS4 at the end of this year. And yeah, I'm happy about the TLOU remastered. So in my case he's quite right.

Edit. Oh, and the point was that I was totally a Wii owner for some years. Played dozens of games.

ToniK commented on Kotaku Says YES to the Wii U - Rejoicing Begins:

I've actually never visited their site. I did after reading this and will never do it again. The comment section was HOSTILE. Nintendo Life may not be Miiverse either but at least most people here are sensible and the overall atmosphere is friendly and mostly constructive even when dealing with serious subjects. I'm happy here.

ToniK commented on Stats Suggest That UK Kids Are More Likely To ...:

The lack of buttons is the biggest issue but also the superficiality and shallowness of the games on android devices is what keeps me away from them. Even the most console-like experiences lack all the depth of real console and pc games. Dead Space was okay but mostly "pick this up and then go to next checkpoint". Not to mention the countless Slendy and other games that rely solely on cheap scares. Tablets and phones are great for puzzle games but that's it.

ToniK commented on Ubisoft Runs Another eShop Discount Bonanza in...:

Like many have said, Shadow Wars is surprisingly good and should be bought by anyone who doesn't absolutely hate turn-based strategy. I would re-buy it with that price. Also Rayman Origins and maybe Legends after that.

ToniK commented on Review: How to Survive (Wii U eShop):

The price seems a bit steep but I'd really like to give this a chance. It somehow seems really charming to me, don't know why. Half off the price and I'm sold. I'm still quite deep in the MK8 vortex but in a few weeks I might check this out.

ToniK commented on Nintendo Executive Suggests Wii U is at a "Tip...:

Yes, I think Wii U still has a small chance to be a moderate success. Either way, I have enjoyed my Wii U like there is no tomorrow and it is probably my all-time favorite console. I still have many things to look forward to and if I need some of those immature "mature" titles, I will buy a PS4 or a pc. Which I probably will. But I've been satisfied and busy with this console and while I hope long life and prosper for the U, I and the other Wii U owners will have a decent amount of quality games which in the end is the most important thing to us as customers. Ok, off to Mario Kart then :)

ToniK commented on Eiji Aonuma Vows to Reduce Hand-Holding in Fut...:

That's fine. SS is my favorite Zelda but it did have excessive hand-holding at times. What bugs me though is that people still consider OoT pretty much flawless while some of its "puzzles" were unfair and stupid. "Oh, you're doing the exact right thing but you stand an inch off so go ahead and think of something else and wander through Hyrule for hours." Yeah, wasn't too fond of that game. It started a lot of beautiful things but every single Zelda after that has been better in my opinion. I want content instead of confusion and content did SS offer.

Fine by me. Actually, I kinda like having at least SOME games on my hard drive. I buy retail 'cause the awful pricing of euro eShop but don't mind having these freebies on hd. And people low on space: you can always re-download everything, so as a last resort you can delete some content you're not playing at the time. Just keep the save files if you want.

ToniK commented on Ninterview: Taylor Davis Shares Her Musical Jo...:

Cool interview. Gaming and music are my favorite things and I also listen to game soundtracks regularly. It's sometimes funny to listen to some NES tunes in a crowded bus or something but hey, what can you do? I need my Batman The videogame tunes or I get cranky.

If anything, this whole mess fortifies my decision to stay out of Smash Bros :D I've never played a Smash Bros. and I won't start now when it's solely a multiplayer experience. Blinding rage is not exactly my thing so bye bye Smash Bros. Forever. epic movie voice

ToniK commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Patch The Controversial ...:

I may have done this unintentionally because it felt logical. Not sure though. I've not seen this technique in use to my knowledge. I don't know, maybe it's ok. Seems like a drag though, constantly tapping drift. Drifting sometimes gets tiring as it is and this doesn't make it more enjoyable. We'll see.

ToniK commented on Review: Pushmo World (Wii U eShop):

I think Pullblox was the first game I downloaded when I got my 3DS. Still hasn't finished :D The 3-dimensional nature of the game makes sure some puzzles are unbelievably complex. One of the greatest puzzle-games ever, for sure.

I'll check it out later! This is my first online Mario Kart experience so I'm still learning. I've done ok except today I didn't stand a chance with Koopa Troopa :( He's just too slow I guess. I did better with Rosalina.

ToniK commented on Tactical Strategy RPG Based on Sci-Fi TV Serie...:

Interesting. So it's not a first or third person shooter. I'm getting a strong vibe of 5/10 but I'll keep an eye on this. Has the potential to surprise. I kind of miss GR: Shadow Wars on 3DS which was surprisingly awesome and if this is anything like that I could give it a go.

ToniK commented on Talking Point: The GameCube Controller Adapter...:

I have nothing more to add, I just wonder the possible GC VC prices. The whole Virtual Console is already terribly overpriced IMO and GC games would probably be somewhere around 15 euros here. Possibly even more.

I'd love to buy more SNES games, or GBA games, they're just too expensive. I can't see it changing either. Discounts are also really rare when it comes to VC. I will whine about this over and over again. You can get several new-ish games from Steam with the price of ONE 20-year-old game. An emulated one. That's not right.
