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"



Tops commented on Video: Enjoy a Turbo Boost With This Mario Kar...:

@rjejr But isn't Link's inclusion alone leading to that "Nintendo Kart, waaah" response? I think they may as well have thrown a couple other Zelda characters in there for good measure since they're getting that complaint regardless.

Oh well, maybe we'll see them in future DLC packs. One can wish ;)



Tops commented on This Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire Over...:

I'm seriously considering getting both....and while watching the trailer I just realized that the last time I got both Pokémon iterations was with the Ruby & Sapphire. Oh nostalgia, how you get to me. After gen 3 I only bothered to get one game from each set.



Tops commented on Review: Zombie Panic in Wonderland DX (3DS eShop):

I didn't really have much interest in getting this but at least now I know I'm not missing much.

Plus I've got Ace Attorney to fill the niche of objectionable content on my 3DS :P
(Not to mention Senran Kagura :*)



Tops commented on Feature: Working 9 to 5 in a Fantasy Life - We...:

@Dpullam I hear you when you say you appreciate straightforward games every now and then. I do too. What's cool about Fantasy Life is that it can be as straightforward as you want, because none of the classes themselves are integral to the storyline.

If you manage to pick it up, I recommend playing as a traditional paladin and going through the game's story without bothering to switch classes. It's a good way to enjoy the storyline in a more focussed way. :)
