When Summer and Winter collide.

Male, 15,

Huge Nintendo fan since '08. 3DS owner since Launch. I love Science Fiction. I'm probably what qualifies as a troll. Sorry in advance. Proud member of the Smasherz in the Wii Fit U Miiverse community. When Summer and Winter once loved each other, they made me.

WinterWarm commented on Review: IRONFALL Invasion (3DS eShop):

I want to slap the developers in the face, by the way. Why release it in Europe first? Action/War/Shooter games have always sold better in North America than Europe. Europe's obsessed with FIFA and PES, anyway.

WinterWarm commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

@Sketchturner Um, not really. The larger of a scale the more accurate you can rate a game, that's why I wish Nintendo Life used a 100 point scale.

Anyway, I sort of agree with Eurogamer, the point of releasing patches is valid, but couldn't you just update the review? It seems like they're overstating the importance of reviews a little. I've bought games NL gave a poor review of and enjoyed them a lot. Really depends on the person(like Thomas said). Maybe review scores would be better if the whole site staff voted on them and they picked an average??

@conman2012 That's just crazy, the two instances are in no way equal. Sometimes developers are forced to release a game before it's done, do they deserve the flak just because their bosses made them do it? Sometimes it's because they need money sorely(Renegade Kid said they released Xeo Drifter because they needed more funds) so they can stay afloat. All I'm saying is it's not always greed or not caring about customers that's the cause of crappy games being released early.

I prefer a scoring system myself, it really just paints a clearer picture. Besides, you guys(NL) always say more than just a score at the end, the Conclusion section of your review really sums it all up nicely, and the score just serves to articulate how good or bad the game's features are.
