Tops commented on Natsume Thanks Fans for Strong Launch of Harve...:

I guess that's good to hear, but the game felt mediocre at best and could be frustrating at times (or all the time if you like watering your plants, lol).

A sequel would have to be a substantial improvement for me to pick it up and I wouldn't do so without looking at reviews beforehand (reviews for this one were quite difficult to find).



Tops commented on Review: Fire Emblem (Wii U eShop / Game Boy Ad...:

Can't wait to pick this up!

Interestingly, it was receiving Sacred Stones from the Ambassador program that got me into the series and hyped for Awakening, despite the latter being responsible for broadening the series' appeal. Go figure!



Tops commented on Weirdness: The Pokémon Timeline Seems as Craz...:

I'm not really into this kind of theorizing but this take on Pokémon seems pretty weak imo. The idea that each game in a generation is an alternate dimension and the link cable is what allows you to connect to yourself? Seems like grasping at straws to me.



Tops commented on Feature: A Year in Development - Renegade Kid:

Good read but Jools' post on Xenodrifter is even better for insight into its development, and the reasons behind needing to make it at the expense of delaying Treasurenauts.

I'll admit that I've been very harsh on them this past year and reading Jools' post helped put things in perspective. I'm glad he wrote it. It shows RK cares enough to smooth things over with fans they may have lost trust with. I commend that, not that they need my approval.

Anyway, all the best to them in 2015 :)



Tops commented on Feature: A Year in Development - Image & Form:

Well, after taking stock of all the games I'm interested in this coming year I know I won't be able to get all of them. Good thing SteamWorld Heist is sitting up at the top of my eShop list. ;)



Tops commented on Review: My Life on a Farm 3D (3DS eShop):

You guys should review Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley. I just finished and enjoyed it. It's a good, albeit flawed, game. I'm curious to know what NL would have to say about it.



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

Review sounded like a 7 at most but NL can be generous at times.
Same recycled boss design, loose controls and short playtime? Not for $10, thanks.



Tops commented on Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Br...:

Never played the original so this is on my list though I'm not sure about the price tag. Looks like I'll be waiting for the price to go down.

I paid full price for SMTIV and that was worth it, imo, with the art/strategy book but I don't think I'll be doing that a second time.



Tops commented on Soapbox: Sonic, It's Time to Talk:

Sounds a bit like a knee-jerk reaction piece to me.
If Sonic games being bad is nothing new then why are we getting all up in arms about it now? Because of one particularly poor spin-off? I say, "Who cares"
