Xomitsious commented on Nintendo Working On New 'Dedicated Game Platfo...:

The real question is whether the new console is just a handheld that also plays on tv, or a set top box that uses the handheld as a controller.

That's because its launching price is the most important factor to determine how the public sees this. As a successor to the 3ds or the wiiU?



Xomitsious commented on Soapbox: Portable Gaming Forges a Special Rela...:

I started off with "Thriller House" a Game and Watch style game, and then got "Octopus" a Nintendo G&W. My first grey brick GameBoy carried me until GBA which I got at launch (and couldn't pay the rent because I had spent the money on the GBA). I resisted DS's charms as long as I could (being able to borrow a friend's for long periods helped) but got a Fire Emblem 3ds xl when it came out.
I have always felt what the article describes, that connection and affection for the portable consoles.

Got it new from Amazon a couple of months ago. Could not find it at Game. And, yeah, graphics are very pretty and the Master Quest perfect (feels like a new game, as long as someone else completes the standard adventure) for someone who played the N64 version all those years ago.

Am I the only one who likes Jynx? I guess it had something to do with creating a fairly decent one with Perish Song, way back on the original Silver, but still I think it's a funny, likeable pokemon.
Also Tropius and Exeggutor look great of course.
The only one I could agree with is the #2.



Xomitsious commented on The Studio Behind Sega's Wonder Boy Series Mig...:

Wonder Boy is one of the first games I ever played on the tender age of 7 (or 8). I even managed to finish it on the Amstrad 6128 (the sesion must have taken 4-5 hours... was there a pause button?). Never played Wonder Boy 3 though.



Xomitsious commented on Nintendo 64x64: Mario Tennis:

Probably my favourite 4 player game ever. (sorry Mario Kart and Smash Bros, though Snowboard Kids 64 is a close second). The fact that there is no need for split screen helps, but also a really skill based game. Not as fun single player, 2 player still decent.



Xomitsious commented on Video: CNET Pays Homage To The Nintendo Game Boy:

My first ever console (I think I had an Amstrad Cpc 6128 before that). Snapped one up as soon as they became available in Greece. I love my GameBoy so much. Favourite games include the awesome Gargoyle's Quest, Link's Awakening and Metroid 2.



Xomitsious commented on Nintendo Working on Fix for Pokémon X & Y Gam...:

I read in a forum (sorry can't remember where exactly) that if you accidentally crash the game like this you can remove the sd card, reboot the game and save somewhere else.
The OP there even thanked for the advice and said it worked
