Tops commented on Review: DOOORS (3DS eShop):

Only interested if there is at least some story beyond the setup. No mention of it in the review so I think I'll pass



Tops commented on Poll: Would You Like Mario Kart 8 and Super Sm...:

I feel like the first two choices are skewed; why do I have to be less excited in exchange for hoping quality is sustained? Can't I expect both? :P

I believe the MK8 DLC has delivered on both fronts (quality and excitement factor) thus far and would love to see more in the same vein.



Tops commented on Akihiro Hino on Why Fantasy Life 2 is Not Comi...:

Disappointing. I will continue to enjoy my copy of the first game but will not be touching this, even if they decided to port it over later. Likewise, I will forever cherish my collection of Professor Layton games but will not buy anything just because the brand name is slapped on it.

I feel like Level-5 has really been letting down the fans that have supported them up until now.



Tops commented on Review: Fossil Fighters: Frontier (3DS):

@DRL Great review! I only read it to see what this series is about but your transparency with why the game scored what it did and fleshing out the pros and cons made the review feel informative and fair to the game. Very enjoyable read for someone who thought the game may be dismissed as childish shovelware.



Tops commented on Etrian Odyssey Untold 2 Delivers an Artful Lau...:

I have to agree with the others. I won't pay extra for every single one of their games. I did for one (SMT IV) and that I was fine with, but didn't have to pay any more for either EO: Untold or EO IV (and still got the goodies), and I'm not paying inflated fees for any of their other games. It adds up to too much too quickly.



Tops commented on Community Interview: Give Us Your Affordable S...:

Do you have any anecdotes about the challenges or process of making ASA that you could share with us? I always love a good story :)

Which makes me think, does the game have a storyline, and if so is it presented to the player or more so one that is conveyed subtly within the stages themselves? (forgive me if this has already been addressed) :)



Tops commented on Review: Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley (3DS):

I bought this on release and have had my enjoyment out of it but it is quite a flawed experience and certain aspects can be frustrating to figure out or just do before the end of each day.



Tops commented on ​Exclusive: Affordable Space Adventures Pric...:

A reasonable price, to be sure. Though I do feel it could hurt them to announce when a sale could be expected (or 'not expected until'), even if they're okay with people waiting.

Hopefully everyone who has been waiting for this decides to pick it up at launch.



Tops commented on First Screens From Banjo-Kazooie Spiritual Su...:

Watch the video if you haven't already.

These gentlemen seem so genuine and passionate about what it is they're doing. Even at these early stages I honestly believe they're worth supporting and it'll be exciting to see what they can do. Best of luck to them :)



Tops commented on Swedish Newspaper Questions The European Relea...:

Games are like every other medium. Even if you don't agree with the content of it, the work still has a right to exist. This is why we are able to see different views of the world and disagree with each other, hopefully in a respectful way.

I don't agree with her view, but I agree she has a right to say it. Likewise, even if she doesn't agree with the content of the game she should respect its right to exist as a piece of someone's work.

What if people tried to censor her and what she wanted to express? That would be just as wrong yet she'd have a problem with not allowing people to express themselves in that instance.



Tops commented on Koei Tecmo Says Hyrule Warriors Has Breathed N...:

@TingLz I think it's more about the characters you get to play as than the world you're in. Granted I've traversed Hyrule's locales many times yet have not been able to do so with my favourite characters until HW, so I may be taking the former for granted. ;)

With FE's upswing in popularity and the new game I don't necessarily think the crossover would do too badly.



Tops commented on Koei Tecmo Says Hyrule Warriors Has Breathed N...:

HW was my first in the series too. It had always been a franchise I had a vague sense of peripherally but never looked into.

Would I now be interested in a non-crossover title? Yes, actually. Would I also like to see a, say, Fire Emblem iteration? Undoubtedly ;)



Tops commented on Review: OlliOlli (Wii U eShop):

@erv Totally agree. To add my thoughts, even when games go on sale I resist the impulse buy because, as much as I like a good deal, it's the time spent on any given game that I'm starting to think about.
