WarlockNem commented on Square Enix Shuts Down Dragon Quest VII Fan Tr...:

If I want to play Dragon Quest VII I'll just play my PSX copy of Dragon "Warrior" VII on my PS3 which ironically I've been doing for the past few days anyway. I'm fine with the original localization and really could care less for the 3DS remake, Square Enix can keep it.



WarlockNem commented on The First Mother Game Is Finally Coming To The...:

Seeing this on the E-Shop today totally blew me away. I have always been aware of the rom floating around on the internet titled Earthbound Zero of the unreleased translated prototype but never could get my head around playing it that way but this.... as a virtual console title on my Wii U I am definitely going to play it now. Playing on the console proper is the way to go. I am a huge fan of the game of the Mother game we know as Earthbound and have always been intreged by the titles we never got. This is so freaking cool!



WarlockNem commented on Interview: Splatoon Producer Hisashi Nogami on...:

Me, my daughter, and wife are having a lot of fun with this game. Best original Nintendo IP in a long time! I'm actually very happy with every aspect of this game. A very appealing and fun but severely under hyped single player story mode (which is my favorite thing about the game as a matter of fact), a well executed online multiplayer mode (which actually did a very good job at getting me back into playing online, something I haven't done and hasn't been fun for me in ages), and the 1 on 1 dojo battles, we (my family) have a blast with this mode. Can't wait for the extra content to roll out over the next few months but I'm still pretty satisfied with what we got day 1!



WarlockNem commented on Asynchronous Online Multiplayer to Feature in ...:

@Mommar Actually the majority of Castlevania titles have been on consoles and yes while mainly on Nintendo hardware my point is that the series was pretty well known and popular even before the hand held push of SOTN gameplay clones. Not bagging those games I'm a huge follower of the series as a whole even the Igavanias I'm just trying to point out that consoles are the perfect home for this game considering that's how Castlevania itself started out. People might argue this but in my opinion throwing Castlevania on handhelds to a clique cult fanbase is what outcasted it from the public eye and is solely responsible for the series slow agonizing death (back then by the way I'm pretty aware that it's a much more preferable way to game these days, still doesn't mean that this game is more at home on hand helds) I'm not even going to blame the Mercury Steam trilogy like most people would. Sadly Castlevania was already on it's way out or even actually out the door by the time those games were made.



WarlockNem commented on Mother 4 Is On The Way, But It's Not Being Mad...:

@justlink Nothing, this game has the potential to make us feel just like we did playing Earthbound/Mother or any of the other games in the series. By looking through the site you can tell they are being very careful with it and care about what they are doing. I can't wait to play this when it comes out. Plus the original creator is apparently okay with this project and has no ill will toward it.



WarlockNem commented on Mother 4 Is On The Way, But It's Not Being Mad...:

I have anticipated this "fan" game for a while and so has my wife. There is a large community of Earthbound/Mother fans that also support this project and want to see it released. Like I said above Itoi himself is pretty aware of this game being made and sort of gave his okay on it. So for me to see this type of negativity outside of the community is staggering. My excitement starts to become fear knowing that Nintendo will shut it down due to the unnecessary hate generated by their consumers left from comments on slightly high profile fan news sites such as this one. I don't see the harm in a free fan game that actually took the time to create their own original content, it's not a complete rip off if one at all. The hate towards it baffles me...



WarlockNem commented on Mother 4 Is On The Way, But It's Not Being Mad...:

I've been following the development of this game for years which anyone can do on it's website. They are pretty clear that this is a fan made project and the assets like the sprites,tilesets, and music are made from scratch. Yes I can see similarities in the official games as this one but certain things have to be so that it retains the feel of the games made in the past. After all it is a love letter to the series. There is a huge team behind this game and Itoi himself is actually aware of its development and basically game it an okay.



WarlockNem commented on Latest Mana Game Rises To The Challenge:

@Retrogamer88 From what news I've heard of this game it is built around multiplayer because it is an MMO. Although I haven't had the chance to watch this release trailer yet to confirm it for myself so that news from a day or so ago might be out dated and inaccurate.



WarlockNem commented on Donkey Kong Country's Fate Was Determined By A...:

The DKC games were extremely fun (more notably the first one) and to a degree pretty nice to look at but even for their time you could feel the limitations set upon them by the hardware. I still loved my SNES and those games either way.



WarlockNem commented on Iwata Looking To Emulate iOS And Android With ...:

A dedicated console for the gamers, a smaller downgraded handheld version of said console for gamers on the go, small low efficiency learning tablets with apps directed toward children or who ever wants to be taught something, and "nonwearable" devices that cater to Nintendo's new "QoL" way of thought all running on a universal Nintendo O.S. and unified Nintendo I.D. account system. I can see it working out rather well.



WarlockNem commented on Nintendo Confirms Dedicated Development Team f...:

I imagine them utiIizing smart devices by maybe putting minigames for download in app stores that will only get people to want to play full on Nintendo games on Nintendo's devices. For example a small downloadable game app based solely on the Captain Toad levels from SM3DW. Not necessarily those same levels but a whole new game with the same concept. Then an app that let's you access a unified account based eshop and browse Nintendo related news is a great idea also.



WarlockNem commented on Here Are Some Monstrous eShop Discounts for No...:

Is there a huge difference between both versions of Scribblenauts Unlimited that would justify rebuying the game for Wii U? We already have a copy that's been floating around the household from person to person for the 3DS.



WarlockNem commented on Nintendo Is Sorry That The Wii U's TVii Servic...:

You're not really missing out on anything. It's not that great of a service anyway. I find myself not ever using it. Nintendo TVii is a really bad concept that needs to be worked on further if it ever wants to be remotely useful.



WarlockNem commented on New Road Redemption Footage Blasts Away Road R...:

Never really played the 16 bit Road Rash games much or at all but I did own the Road Rash released on the Panasonic 3DO and RR64. I really enjoyed those games very much and always wanted new titles in the series but if a successor is all we're going to get I hope they can pull it off.



WarlockNem commented on Remake Request: Shining The Holy Ark:

Does anyone remember Beyond the Beyond? I thought that was a fun RPG during the early years of the Playstation. Yes it wasn't one of Camelot's greatest moments but I would love to see that world revisited. I am a big fan of their efforts with the Shining series though and would think a remake on 3DS would be awesome.



WarlockNem commented on Monolith Soft Lists "Urgent" Job Postings, Inc...:

Being a long time fan of the Xeno series this is one of the games I am most anticipating coming from the Wii U. I really hope Nintendo steps up and puts a heavy amount of marketing for this title (outside of Japan) to show that they have faith in it because I certainly do!



WarlockNem commented on Level 5 Is Hard At Work On A New Game That Wil...:

@LetsGoRetro Both are fun games. The sequel improves on some aspects that were clunky about the first. Still the former is a better experience to me simply for it being the first in the series and having that sense of newness. My wife considers both to be her favorite PS2 games of that generation. Although it will never live up to Soul Blazer or instill that same sense of nostalgia even considering Dark Cloud is a much more immersive and polished game and can be considered retro itself these days.



WarlockNem commented on Digital Foundry Heaps Praise on Super Mario 3D...:

Love this game! Me, my wife, and even our four year old daughter have been playing it nonstop! I don't see the SMB series as a kiddy game either I think it appeals to a large demographic. If a person claims to be any kind of true hardcore gamer at all they should hold true respect for these games. Playing mature games that rely on blood, head shots, and harsh language is pretty much the norm now (which I dabble in myself from time to time) and could be considered more casual than even Mario is.
