TromboneGamer commented on Poll: Did The Nintendo Direct Comeback Fire on...:

I think it was alright. They spent a lot of time on things we already knew about which I expected, but left me disappointed. The news we did get was decent. Really nice we're getting the Dragon Quest games, but TPHD looked less impressive than I expected. It was a mixed bag, really.



TromboneGamer commented on More North American Women Own A Games Console ...:

It's great that more girls are gaming but one study isn't going to be factual evidence for the demographic install base. Even if it were entirely true gaming PCs have become extremely popular and increasingly are replacing the need or desire for a console.



TromboneGamer commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Passes Four Million ...:

It deserves it. I spent a decent amount of time with it for the first couple months after launch, but after that my attention drifted away to other things. Just need to get motivated and have the time on my hands to jump back in again.



TromboneGamer commented on Review: Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden (3DS):

Based on the demo I'd say the feel of the game is alright, and while there is a bit of depth, it wasn't enough to hook me. Though, While I'd love to support a dbz fighter while it's fresh on the market I just don't think it's worth the buy for me yet.



TromboneGamer commented on Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash Could Possibly be the La...:

Well I'm not particularly excited. For the most part it's because I don't really care for yet another action platformer and while the visuals are pleasant enough I can't see it catching many people's attention. I do like chibi-robo as an adventure game and would definitely be keen on a proper entry similar to the original.



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.



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

@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.
