TromboneGamer commented on Poll: Which New Nintendo 3DS Will You be Buying?:

Every time I see a poll with monster hunter in it I get sad because I realize just how popular it isn't.... OT I am greatly disappointed that the standard model was shunned and though we may be seeing a release eventually, which I doubt will happen, it would be even more aggravating.



TromboneGamer commented on Review: Maze (Wii U eShop):

I suppose there's nothing too terrible about having amateur developers producing their early works on the eShop, but it's definitely not the right place for these games to be. On the other hand, this is an easier way for the dev to get visibility early and plenty of feedback no matter how critical it may be.



TromboneGamer commented on Nintendo Reveals New Wii U Footage and Details...:

I must admit link's walking animation looked a little funny and maybe it was just the way the video was recorded but I noticed occasional frame dips especially when link was riding Epona. That said it may have just been my eyes deceiving me and hopefully so because the huge frame drops in WWHD were quite jarring. Fortunately the visuals look crisp and for the most part looked smooth. I'm not sure it looks quite as amazing as everyone else is saying, to me that is, but the vibrant colors would probably lend themselves better to a direct feed. That's not to say that there weren't some very cool details such as Epona's hair sway. Either way looking forward to picking the game up next year and going on what seems to be a revolutionary adventure in the Zelda franchise.



TromboneGamer commented on Nexis Games Defends UCraft's Multiplatform Mov...:

I think this guy has good intentions but has no idea how to present himself and has shown an arrogant attitude before. This seems to be a problem with some recent one or 2 man development teams and by some I mean this guy, the guy who made The Letter (who seems more ignorant than arrogant), and Mike Maulbeck of the recently reformed Code Avarice who made a game you may or may not hear of called Paranautical Activity (which is a decent roguelike FPS, if not very remarkable). This project seems like it will either be doomed or not worth playing even if it comes to consoles.



TromboneGamer commented on Watch Dogs Will be the Only "Mature" Ubisoft G...:

On another note, you can't tell me that I wouldn't buy another Red Steel. Perhaps that's not an "M" series of games, but you have no idea how much people would love another installment. It really is unfortunate Red Steel 2 didn't get the attention it deserved. Now I sound like a broken record. Thanks Ubisoft.



TromboneGamer commented on Areal Passes Kickstarter Goal, Yet More Peculi...:

They never said that putin supports their game. In an update on their kickstarter it was stated that they simply have no verifcation on whether this is a joke or not. This PR team is really bad, and that's putting it lightly, but I don't think they have ill intentions.



TromboneGamer commented on Nintendo Needs To Cut Wii U Cost To Capitalise...:

I'm hoping for Red Steel 3, but more than likely it will be some kind of fitness or dance game. As for a price drop, I don't think that would benefit Nintendo at all. Just because it's cheaper doesn't mean it will get the message out and it's too early in the console's life for it to be $100 or so less than it's original retail price.



TromboneGamer commented on Ryozo Tsujimoto Outlines Capcom's Approach to ...:

Really not sure why you guys want a wii U port on a game with visuals specifically designed for max performance on 3ds. Of course portable 3rd was ported to PS3 but it's environments were very simliar to Tri therefore the upres didn't hurt it's visuals. Personally, I wouldn't want to play an upressed version of 4 because the textures would probably not benefit from an upres whatsoever and overall the look would throw me off.



TromboneGamer commented on High Voltage Software Developing 3DS Version o...:

From what I've heard there's nothing wrong with their ports of injustice and they displayed the conduit running on 3DS before the console's release. It could have some decent looks maybe. As for how it plays.. well this studio is inconsistent in that area.



TromboneGamer commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

Objectification of women is always a touchy subject, but many a time feminists lash out at this sexualization or ant-feminists will lash out at even the smallest of censorship. It's either hard or impossible to find middle ground. It's a hate or be hated world right now.
