TromboneGamer commented on Nintendo NX Could Get A Port Of MMORPG Final F...:

Square Enix being so eager to produce these games on a system we know almost nothing about must mean something, right? My guess is Nintendo's already given them the run down on NX, at least in concept, and perhaps that's what's gotten them excited for it. Still a somewhat odd situation as none of these titles are actually confirmed yet.

TromboneGamer commented on Negative Reception For Devil's Third Is Due To...:

In regards to framerate I can understand that some people don't notice too much of a difference but if you actually watched the gameplay the moment things get any bit intense it drops like a rock. if the game is truly 'difficult' a consistent framerate, fast even, is EXTREMELY important ESPECIALLY in a 3D action game. Of all the things that need to be fixed this needs to be the #1 priority.

@Zyph With the kind of attitude and other things that Itagaki has said in the saga since the games' re-unveiling that is honestly probably asking too much. In order to fix the games problems he needs to admit there are ACTUAL problems in the first place, as you said.

TromboneGamer commented on Multiple Sources Point to Nintendo of America ...:

At this point the game isn't what I was hoping it was going to be, that is to say a quality game, which makes me angry that even with Nintendo's support it didn't turn out that way. That said, I'm quite sure I won't be paying $60 for it and am only interested in the MP portion of the game at the moment.

TromboneGamer commented on Poll: Does Nintendo's Drive Towards Multiplaye...:

My god the salt over Metroid is unreal. I mean board based party games don't interest me anymore so that's the biggest reason I don't care for AC amiibo festival, but that game is getting disregarded pretty hard as well. I like multiplayer but Nintendo hasn't demonstrated multiplayer in a way that looks fun for any of these games yet.

TromboneGamer commented on Project H.A.M.M.E.R. Exposé Reveals Torrid St...:

No doubt situations have improved over the years, but it's sad to hear about the breakdown between culture and race during this title's development. Think I've heard/seen a mention of this game on the rare occasion back in 2008 but nothing since and even then I didn't know what people were talking about. I was still a kid back in '06 but I still had my eye on E3 and yet never even saw a glimpse of this game. Looked like it had potential. Too bad.

TromboneGamer commented on Talking Point: The Pros, Cons and Questionable...:

2016 is probably too soon in general. Forget July. Reggie recently stated that they don't typically release software in the summer because people are "in the mood to buy" during the fall/holiday season. I am QUITE sure they will follow that same logic with their home console hardware since it seems quite likely that's what NX is. I also wouldn't doubt that Nintendo plans to support Wii U heavily next holiday season as well with Zelda and other unannounced titles. I would pin Spring 2017 as a maybe, but I'd feel safer betting on holiday 2017.

TromboneGamer commented on Nintendo Reportedly Pitched NX To Third Partie...:

The needs of the players is third party support. Sorry Nintendo, but even if NX has a really neat thing going for it, if it's under powered or hard to develop for we'll have a Wii situation on our hands at best. Good for profit and casuals, but a sad story for the consumer.

TromboneGamer commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U eShop Games of 2015...:

Picked FAST cuz that's exclusive but honestly looking forward to the shmup games more. Shout outs to RIVE. The demo really demonstrated that the feel of the game is on point and it was challenging as well. Jumping is awkward, but otherwise definitely a game that deserves, and honestly needs for the devs' sake, support.

TromboneGamer commented on Iwata Vows To Listen To E3 2015 Digital Event ...:

It wasn't bad and it's honorable of them to bring on presenters who worked very hard on upcoming games, allowing them to share their passion with fans who love to hear about development, but most of it didn't get me fired up or catch my attention. I do respect nintendo's efforts and their relationships with devs. I really just wish there could have been more excitement. Mario & Luigi Paper Jam was THE highlight for me and Star Fox looked pretty neat too (unfortunately the fidelity is low due to the gamepad functionality), but other than that the rest of 2015 feels too dry. Here's to hoping it's not all that bad.

TromboneGamer commented on Reggie Has Been Pushing For Binding Of Isaac T...:

I've played the game quite a bit on steam though nowhere near as much as some people. I will probably spend most of my time catching up and progressing further on the Wii U and 3DS versions. Really hope there will be a cross-buy promotion. As much as I want to support the game, buying it 3 times wouldn't be very fun for my wallet.

@OMC79 I don't know him so trust isn't the right word. I simply consider a number of factors of game development and those working on games I follow and looking at this trailer again I've come to appreciate the visuals a little better. Sure there are certain aspects of it that are lazy/unpolished but they serve the game just fine imo. That being said, I'm sure you have more justification then me to be upset as you are very passionate about the Mega Man franchise. It would be sad indeed if this game is unable to satisfy the fans.

@OMC79 To quote Sakurai "Have you ever made a game before?" I won't leave my reply at that, however. The Development team hadn't even decided what engine the game would run on until they got their funding so they were working on the game for about 2 years I'd guess for MULTIPLE platforms which takes time and money, which some of that money seems to have gone to other media and merchandise. Take that for what you will. They have not made a profit on the game yet as it hasn't been released. How much was the salary of each team member? What kind of difficulties did they run into? Who was play testing and how much? What kind of resources did they need to implement features such as online functionality? These are things that must be considered for the development of every game and I'm by no means an expert.

TromboneGamer commented on ​Fresh Monster Hunter X (Cross) Details Emer...:

@Windy Seeing this game in the west at all next year would probably be a long shot. I have no doubt that we'll get the game at some point, but it almost certainly won't be as soon as a few months short of a year after it's launch in Japan. If Capcom put all their resources behind it, it could happen, but I'm not sure they're ready to do that for the series just yet.

I agree that the game looks bland, but such is the result of limited development time and a load of features that the project's stretch goals made possible. You can see almost all those features in the trailer which is a good thing if you ask me. I've stated before that I'm not a big Mega Man fan, but if you're looking for that type of game design it will probably deliver to some extent. It's unfortunate that the game doesn't seem to be much more than what it's simply trying to be though.
