TruenoGT commented on Review: Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Cal...:

I rather enjoy rhythm games and (some of) the Final Fantasy series, but I find the game play and aesthetics of this series too boring and too "90s flash animation" respectively compared to IMO much more entertaining games like the Rhythm Heaven series or Rhythm Thief. I think when you try to graft game play onto existing music, it doesn't work nearly as well as compositions made purposely for this type of game play... plus the FF series is so uneven with games you either love or hate, it's painful to deal with songs and characters from the games you dislike just to progress. To each their own however and I'm glad some people really enjoy it.



TruenoGT commented on Square Enix Temporarily Pulls 3DS Dragon Quest...:

True story that last night I had the oddest dream that Square Enix converted my childhood middle school into a launch party to announce the western release of DQX. It's extra weird as I'm not even that interested in the game itself!



TruenoGT commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Will Suppor...:

This is super lame. Even Kid Icarus supported the CPP. I don't understand how they can bend over backwards to support a 13 year old controller on the Wii U version and can't support a current generation peripheral for the 3DS version. I was actually just playing MGS3 last night with my CPP, love the ergonomics of that thing.



TruenoGT commented on Nintendo 64x64: Body Harvest:

I bought the cart last year actually and was so confused by this game. I need to give it another go sometime and try to get over the initial hump. Definitely seemed very unique...



TruenoGT commented on Project CARS Wii U Delay Was To Ensure It's As...:

There's plenty other games to play so my wallet is thankful it won't be out until 2015. Who knows, maybe by the time it comes out, some extra cars and/or tracks will be included as a bonus. At the very least, we'll have plenty of general impressions to know if it's worth getting or not.



TruenoGT commented on New Nintendo 3DS Shown Off by Monster Hunter S...:

Is this the first footage of a real unit? They look pretty nice, hinge looks solid on the XL he was playing with. Too glossy though on the MH4 unit, can't wait to see the non-special units to get a better feel for the exterior XL finish... please don't be a finger print magnet!!



TruenoGT commented on Wii U Minecraft Looking Doubtful As Dev Says T...:

@sillygostly You nailed it. I think this logic is actually a subset of why most 3rd parties are abandoning Nintendo. Install base, power disparity, control scheme disparity are all safe (and somewhat valid) excuses to state publicly, but in reality I think it's simply that no one wants to compete with Nintendo on their home turf.



TruenoGT commented on Poll: Tell Us What You Think of the New Ninten...:

I'd prefer the XL size, but I like the more matte and customizable design of the smaller model. Not sure which I'll get yet, probably won't decide until I hear impressions in-hand. I had a REALLY hard time deciding my new favorite feature... I think there's a lot of great improvements, Nintendo killed it IMO.



TruenoGT commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Confirmed By Capco...:

Pretty disappointing... Loved the 1st on 3DS. If they're skipping based on lackluster Wii U sales of the original, I would assume they (amazingly) don't realize that most Wii U owners already bought/played on the 3DS. Even if sales for Wii U sucked, they should realize there IS an audience for a NEW game. Don't know if I'll get this for another platform or not, but if they don't do a "U turn", probably for Windows.



TruenoGT commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Brings Life to the 3DS...:

I'll get one day 1, depending on colors... I'm beyond hyped. My wife wants the smaller one to replace her 2DS, so I'll probably try that first before deciding between XL and standard for me. I like the looks and finish of the smaller one this time, but I love the current XL size. They better bring a white model(either size) to the US this time around. #firstworldproblems



TruenoGT commented on Xenoblade Chronicles Coming to 3DS in Japan:

When playing the Wii game, I thought about how cool the landscapes would feel in 3D... this is going to be pretty awesome. That said, I don't think I'll get it unless I can somehow transfer my save game. If this is indeed a "New 3DS" exclusive, I bet it will be download only to prevent retail confusion.



TruenoGT commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer?:

I painfully narrowed it down to SMB1, SMW, SMG2, and SM3DL. In the end, I always find myself going back to the original, so I had to vote for Super Mario Bros. 1. Every game in that list is at least great.



TruenoGT commented on Talking Point: A Virtual Console Revival Could...:

I've made this argument before, but VC games compete with new games. When I can download one the best games of all time OR download some mediocre new game for the same price, which am I going to pick? I think Nintendo is under pressure from 3rd parties to keep VC prices as is for fear of cannibalizing the market and scaring away new publishers. Personally I think most of the VC games are well worth the price and are peanuts compared to many entertainment options.



TruenoGT commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Assets Spotted:

Loved the first one, played it on 3DS originally, but picked it up on Windows also. I really enjoyed the 3D effect and dual screen interface, so I hope it comes to 3DS, or at least Wii U. If not, PC for me!



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

I know it has a small, but dedicated following on Wii U, so it's too bad to see it not continue for those fans. I've personally never tried or been interested in the series because a) I'm not big into realistic looking games which emphasize killing, and b) the lead character design looks kind of like a douche with that hood.



TruenoGT commented on Retro Studios Ramps Up Recruitment for a Varie...:

I'd love another Prime game, but I don't think Nintendo will expand their audience by sticking to existing franchises/history so closely. I hope Retro's working on something that'll get non-Nintendo diehards on board.



TruenoGT commented on Nintendo Confirms a Huge Range of eShop Discou...:

@Grumblevolcano Circle Pad Pro in KI is really only for lefties, as the game controls with one hand on the original circle pad, other hand with the stylus. The CPP allows lefties to play with the stylus in their left hand. The game cannot be played with a dual analog control scheme, so if you're a righty, you would not use a CPP for Kid Icarus. The game rocks BTW!



TruenoGT commented on The Console Wars Live On As Night Trap Remake ...:

Are there really that many (any??) gamers nostalgic for the brief early days of CD games that were almost nothing more than FMV tech demos? About the only one that's aged somewhat reasonably is Dragon's Lair and that's mostly because of the beautiful animation.



TruenoGT commented on Mario Kart 8 Update & DLC Scheduled for 27th A...:

I was kinda bugged by the product placement at first, but man, seeing it action is pretty cool. I think as long as it stays within the racing realm (cars, maybe wheels, etc), I'm OK with it. If we start seeing Coca-Cola banners and the like, that'd be a deal breaker.



TruenoGT commented on Capcom Is Remastering The GameCube Resident Ev...:

On a technical note, I'm surprised this is only 720p for PS3 and 360. Given that it's a game with pre-rendered backgrounds and very similar models to the GC version, I'm sure they could have done 1080p, especially since there are more graphically impressive games at 1080p on PS3 already (e.g. Wipeout HD). It's almost as if they're gimping the last gen version to make the PS4/XB1 versions artificially seem more impressive, what a joke.



TruenoGT commented on Capcom Is Remastering The GameCube Resident Ev...:

When they're not even doing quick and dirty ports to Wii U, I'm guessing we won't see any new games from Capcom either. If they're excluding Wii U based on Revelations sales, they gotta remember most Wii U gamers are also 3DS gamers who probably already played it and didn't double-dip (that's me). Maybe that's their logic, since most Wii U gamers were probably also Gamecube and/or Wii owners who also have already played this (that's me also).



TruenoGT commented on Renegade Kid Announces Metroidvania Game Xeodr...:

@PvtOttobot I'm with you on this. Games like Metroid were great because they were relatively infrequent and unique... now it seems they are a dime a dozen, along with retro-styled art. I'm a bit tired of re-living history, especially with Nintendo also on a 2D platformer binge the last several years (New Mario Bros, New Yoshi, DKC, Kirby 3DS, etc). These are all great games, but I'm hoping that this "nostalgia era" is wrapping up or least becoming less dominant.



TruenoGT commented on Talking Point: Deconstructing Nintendo's Retai...:

I think it's great for people who prefer physical games. I'm a digital guy on Wii U so I enjoy the convenience and quicker release, but I'm happy that folks who generally avoid digital (or eShop specifically) still get an opportunity to play these games. I think if Nintendo gets a better account system, they'll get more push on the eShop, but until then, this is a smart move.



TruenoGT commented on Wii U Reference Discovered In Call of Duty: Ad...:

I'm not interested in COD specifically, but I'd generally love a fun FPS for Wii U that takes advantage of all the unique Wii U stuff (remote aiming, gamepad vs. TV multiplay, gamepad map, etc). Wish something old-school shooter would come over along the lines of Doom, Quake or UT. Doesn't need to be "AAA" (god I hate that term), just something simple, fun and solid.



TruenoGT commented on Satoru Iwata Is Still "Recovering Steadily" Wi...:

I think things are just transitioning back to dedicated video games as a niche market, not necessarily a mass market outside of the occasional titles like Madden. As Nintendo explores other markets (entertainment and otherwise), their video game business will continue but in a smaller capacity more suited to the current and future audience.

I don't see the current development climate as sustainable anyway for any big games maker. I can't imagine developing art and assets for systems like PS4 and XB1... the only way these games can make money is if they sell millions and millions of copies, unrealistic goal for all but a handful of mass market titles per year.

This pain is just the start of things ratcheting back to a more reasonable level IMO.



TruenoGT commented on Review: Turok 2: Seeds of Evil (Nintendo 64):

I'd recommend tracking down a PC version of Turok 2. It's tricky to get running on modern Windows, but playing this game with a silky smooth frame rate, mouse/keyboard controls, and a higher FOV is pretty amazing. You can also save anywhere so pretty much all the issues of the N64 version are addressed. Either way, the N64 version blew my mind back when it first came out... The production values were way ahead of their time.
