@Mandalore they denied it somewhere, but I am pretty sure it will be the case.

Which would be shame as I want a couple of specialized developers in each platform for trying to get the most out of it, and there has rarely, if ever, been a system, where there would be so much to explore as Wii U. If this came to PS4, we can be sure, that they are not going to use GamePad in any way and you should just get the PS4 version.

Haaaaaaaaaaa!!!

Amazing game in many ways and the best 3D Castlevania ever made.

It will be mine! I borrowed it for awhile, but had to return it before finnishing it, and finally I can put it to an end.

@gurtifus I think in real time roguelikes too. Real time adds pressure of course, but decision making is still the same and all the choices are there. The choices are much more genre defining thing when thinking about roguelikes in my opinion.

It's up to gamedesigner to balance the game so, that there is time to make decisions, and it's also up to the player to use his/her brain. Or die.

If Nethack became a realtime game, I would still call it roguelike. I think the variety of choices makes Nethack the Nethack.

Roguelikes are usually turnbased, but to me it's not a definitive feature. If you turned Nethack into realtime, it would still be roguelike to me.

And multiplayer roguelikes are typically realtime, even if they are ascii and all.

Nothing for easter!?! I would think, that it would be more favourable launch day, than most other days at spring.

I have waited for local multiplayer game for easter holiday for YEARS.

Varoennauraa commented on We Have Shigeru Miyamoto To Thank For The Supe...:

I am still excited of the 3d effect even in the original 3ds and I am buying the new one for the improved 3d. The 3d is expensive graphical effect, it eats half of the GPU, but in my eyes it makes games 10 times better looking.

Many call these special features gimmicks, but if I buy several consoles, I buy them for the 'personality' they have(in addition of games of course). Extreme processing power is not exciting gimmick for me(well I am planning to build quite extreme PC for virtual reality, but that is another matter). I think the processing power is in pretty good balance on the 3ds; if it was more powerful, it would have been more expensive as well(it already was too expensive at launch), and then it would not have as many good games as now. And even the Resident Evil Revelations, one of the early games on the system, is still one of the best looking mobile games in my eyes. Of course the resolution has gone beyond appreciable figures long time ago on more modern mobile devices, and shadows are very rough on the 3ds, but it still gives quite realistic impression, especially in 3d.

AAAAH!
The Aria and Dawn of Sorrow are my favorite Castlevanias! I hope that they will release the DS games next. I missed The Order of Ecclesia and I cannot wait getting it.

I also would go nuts, if they made 2D Castlevania for 3DS, that would have:
-not only the Castle, but other areas as well, in the Simon's Quest vein
-Castlevania 4 style controls
-2D gameplay but 3D graphics
-Not made by MercurySteam

Pandoras Tower AAAAAAHHHHH! Thank you! (I mean, bring it to EU, and then I thank you)

I borrowed it for a while, I absolutely love it but couldn't play it through that time. Now it will be mine.

One of my favorite games of all time. It is among many other tings, in a way, the 3D Castlevania of my dreams.

The online games massive structure is super intriguing, and it has already sold itself to me.

I just really, Really, REALLY wish they would exclude auto aim and ads snap and include gyro aiming option.

And Wiimote would be rather ideal controller for this kind of game.

I am afraid of this.

If they are going to do it, I hope, that they are REALLY careful with the casting. Finding good enough fit for a Link will be difficult.

And even though we are not playing Link this time, I still think, that Link should be mute.

(Edit:
Well, some one mentioned Thomas Brodie-Sangster, and suddenly I believe, that it might be possible to make it happen. I think he might even be able to talk a bit as long as he is not very talkative person, and written with great care)

I played them all many times back in the day, so I would have to try to resist, BUT:
Having the Wiimote controls in 1 and 2 is tempting me so much!

My trigger finger is itching like hell, and there are no other FPS(FPA in this case) coming for the Wii U. I just want more things to shoot with my Wiimote!!!

@WaveyChristmas Monkey Ball will benefit from the New 3DS so much! I bought it a while back, and I liked it a lot, but that game doesn't work with both 3d and gyro on, so I decided to wait until the N3ds.

Being able to use both 3d and gyro in all games is my no. 1 feature on the New 3DS.

I will also get Revelations 3DS version particularly for the gyro aiming! (Really shame, that the Wii U version didn't use it)

Varoennauraa commented on Shantae And The Pirate’s Curse For Wii U & 3...:

I love the cross buy deals, but I think the 50% is the absolute max the developers should ask for buying the same game twice. I think it would be a nice way of asking 1-2ish dollars from customers, but when it goes close to a 10€, I will buy another, completely diferent game.

If there is a way to use universal save files, I wish they would become a standard soon.
