Tops commented on Mario Memories: Pre-Internet Timeline Confusio...:

I remember back in second grade, the older of our two classroom computers had a ROM of Super Mario World and at every chance we got all the guys would take turns playing. I even remember one evening, during a school play, when all of us were in full costume playing SMW as we waited to be called down for our scene.

It was a tragic day indeed when that computer finally gave out and we were left without our favourite game. Our young souls felt crushed.



Tops commented on Fire Emblem Fates Looks Set to be a Single Rel...:

If everything is on one cart I really hope it's not the 'pick one side and pay to unlock the other' scenario some have suggested. I think that would be the worst option, and would rather have them as separate releases.

We'll see what happens but I'm really looking forward to this one so I hope the release is handled well.



Tops commented on Editorial: Super Smash Bros. Should be Integra...:

@ShadJV These editorials aren't pointless because we don't know what the NX is; they're pointless because it doesn't matter what it is. Anyone can name a huge Nintendo franchise and say their next console 'needs it' but all of us already know that. I agree with you that all this speculation is ridiculous.



Tops commented on Video: Nintendo Shines The Spotlight on Aya K...:

I always love hearing developers speak about their games and generally getting to know the people behind my favourite franchises.

@Artwark The issue isn't whether women are or aren't as creative as men. It's about equal opportunity for them to work in the games industry if they so choose and feeling comfortable with their working environment.

And I can't even believe how ignorant this sounds: "The only issue is that their creative minds might alter the game in my opinion." Whether a game has good or bad ideas implemented within it has nothing to do with the gender of the developers; if a bad idea ruins a game it's because it was a bad idea or poorly executed, not because the person who thought it up was a woman or man.



Tops commented on Nintendo Offers Humble Thanks For Condolences ...:

People react in different ways and whether you feel like playing games or not, neither is more appropriate than the other. I still played a bit, but it had to be a game I was in the mood for. Nothing dark, nothing violent, nothing fast-paced, just something I can relax with, take my time with, and enjoy.



Tops commented on First Impressions: Basking in the Glow of Atlu...:

I've been more interested in Legend of Legacy but I'm glad Stella Glow is better than I thought it looked. The music mechanic, or even just the songs themselves, have me wanting to give this one a chance.



Tops commented on Nintendo Cancels Camp Miiverse in Honour of Sa...:

I think it is completely appropriate for Nintendo to forgo continuing Camp Miiverse. It's their decision and doesn't stop us from enjoying their games.

I am, however, disappointed in what this comment section has turned into. I thought the NL community was better than this and capable of showing more respect to someone many of us clearly admire.



Tops commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Retail Games of 2015 ...:

@GMB-001 @Artwark Both Bravely Second and FE Fates are 2016 titles for the West. The article highlights games coming out this year (barring any discrepancies between NA & EU)

I'm really excited for a few titles, most notably Yokai Watch and Chibi Robo. Might give Super Mystery Dungeon a try too.



Tops commented on Video: Brace Yourself for these Top Five Most ...:

Ack, I love Alex but why must he talk over the video? I thought we'd get to revel in the cutscenes undisturbed.

edit: Alright, it wasn't that bad; I think I was just a bit jarred at first for some reason then got used to it.



Tops commented on Shin'en Multimedia Has No Plans for FAST Racin...:

@Giygas_95 I noticed how genuinely kind and passionate he seemed as well. It's amazing what being an honest person will do for you. Martin seemed so excited to be playing, showing and sharing his games with the others that it's very refreshing. I want to be as excited to play this as he was to share it with the Treehouse team (and all of us watching!).

I hope @Manfred and the rest of the Shin'en team know how awesome they are and how well-represented they were to have Martin at E3. Keep it up, guys!



Tops commented on Shin'en Multimedia Has No Plans for FAST Racin...:

@Giygas_95 I'm so glad they gave him a spotlight during Treehouse Live. He was one of my favourite parts of E3, without question. I only watched after reading some praise of how a small studio like Shin'en showed up all the larger companies with their one game (as some people put it), so I checked out their segment. Needless to say, after watching I went from a passing interest in FRN to wanting it day one. I'm not a huge racing fan but this absolutely floored me.

Seriously can't wait!
