Yomerodes commented on Review: My First Songs (Wii U eShop):


It is still impossible to cover everything, they still miss a few, particularly games that were released at retail and later were uploaded to the eshop.


I have seen this game at sale in th 3DS eshop a couple of times, but when I came to NintendoLife to check if it was worth it, I was left with nothing. I hope no future game on sale suffers the same fate.



Yomerodes commented on Australian Classification Board Rates Xtreme S...:

What I want from the GBC virtual console

-Shadowgate Classic
-Bionic Commando
-Metal Gear Solid (Ghost Babel)
-Pokemon Pinball (no rumble obviously, but the game itself was catchy enough)
-Kirby Tilt n' Tumble (with gyro controls, best case scenario)
-Game Boy Camera (okay, this one just for kicks and nostalgia, we all know the 3DS have better cameras by itself)

And of course, SMB DX, MXtreme 1 and 2...but we already know those are coming.



Yomerodes commented on Super Smash Bros. Hitting 3DS This Summer, Wii...:

The poll makes it sound like everyone and their mothers have a Wii U...

Guess what, I am happy that I can get the 3DS version in summer, because that was the version I was going to get anyway. I don't care about the Wii U version at all. Where is my option in the poll?



Yomerodes commented on Review: Skater Cat (3DS eShop):

I got the previous two Peakvox games and loved them (Groove Heaven and Cube Tactics)...but yeah, not convinced by this one, I hope their next project results better.



Yomerodes commented on Review: Pure Chess (Wii U eShop):

The price for cross platform multiplayer. The alternative of playing only against Wii U owners in real time might seem fine, but you have to consider how extremely few people would be online with the small Wii userbase and the fact that well, videogame chess is hardly a best-seller in videogame standards.



Yomerodes commented on Nintendo Download: 27th March (North America):

Totally voted for Cube tactics...I got the game days ago, but it is good enough to deserve the extra mention.

They can't put demos if there are no games. And no, I am not talking in the "NO GAEMZ" kind of way, really just check the release calendar in the past months, the wii u eshop is barely getting original games right now, and those kind of indie and small games are precisely the ones that populate the demo section in the 3DS eshop. When the indie promised avalanche of games finally gets released then maybe some demos start to pour.



Yomerodes commented on Review: Quake II (Nintendo 64):

It was a fine game...but it did made b*tches of anyone? I don't think so.

I will wait for the Daikatana review, I am predicting an eleven out of ten score.



Yomerodes commented on Review: Cube Tactics (3DS eShop):

Great review, was interested in the game already (in the "waiting for a sale" way), but this review convinced me to get it at full price, the developer deserves the courtesy.



Yomerodes commented on Nintendo Download: 20th March (North America):


It is true that the last couple of years of the Wii VC were lacking in releases...but the first few years were worth it, by 2008 the N64 virtual console already had 1080, Ogre Battle, Bomberman, multiple Mario games, both Zeldas, Yohi's Story, Star Fox, and a few others. Now, the Wii U is crawling in its secnd year, and the N64 games are still MIA, the SNES games are very far and between (Capcom already have basically more and better games released than Nintendo themselves in the service).

One might say they are saving the best for later (to avoid repeating the situation of the Wii virtual console losing almost all the steam at halfway the wii lifecycle), but considering the Wii U current situation they might as well burn fast the very best cards they still hold in the virtual console department in order to save face with the massive droughts during this year.



Yomerodes commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

Marvelous produced a lot of games in the past 10 years that I consider top notch (Little King's Story, Muramasa, Arc Rise Fantasia, Avalon Code, Harvest Moon A Wonderful Life, No More Heroes, the entire Rune Factory Franchise, etc.)

When I saw that they were behind Senran Kagura, I decided to give the game a chance (if it ever appeared in America, that is), and I did, not because of the girls or because I thought the game was going to be perfection incarnated, I gave the game a chance because I like the company, and I trust them in this kind of situtations.

I got Senran Kagura Burst during the first week of release, so far having put more than 10 hours in it, and so far being completely pleased with my purchase. I like the game and I like the gameplay, the funny and nonsensical fanservice is just a curious novelty.



Yomerodes commented on Month of Yoshi: The Brightly Coloured History ...:


Back in the day (and even today, although not with Nintendo consoles) a system was able to survive for a couple of years after the next generation arrived. While uncommon, this made possible that franchises that were created for a certain console, resulted in sequels and ports for older consoles, Sonic is another good example, created for the second Sega console (Genesis/MegaDrive), it was popular enough for a couple of Sonic games to be released on the first Sega console, the Master System.

(most)Nintendo gamers get mad when the IOS systems receives a seemingly great game worth their time...

Where I have heard something similar...

(most)Hardcore gamers get mad when the Wii U receives a seemingly great game worth their time...



Yomerodes commented on Video: Experience The Acute Embarrassment Of O...:

They have a rather good sense of humor, I can definitely go beyond that. I hope all this works for them in the end and the game manages to turn them a profit. As for me, I am not really concerned about it being eshop only in America, it was still worth it without the boxart.



Yomerodes commented on Video: The Dubious Charm Of Senran Kagura Burs...:


Well, your mileage may vary...while I have not played Guardian Heroes, I found Senran Kagura from the single player standpoint around 10 times better than Code of Princess (likely the most similar 3DS game that you can find) in gameplay, replay value, controls, 3D effect, storyline, characters, graphics, music and fun factor.

The fact that both games spice things up with some fanservice (obviously more overdosed in SKB case) ends being irrelevant when I compare both games against its peers, and indeed, SKB is on my personal top10 of favorite 3DS games above the likes of Luigi's mansion DM or RE Revelations.



Yomerodes commented on Video: The Dubious Charm Of Senran Kagura Burs...:

Dismissing this game because of the sexualized concept is just like dismissing other games because "they look childish"...if the game is good,it will be good.

Gamers can be divided between those that are able to play every kind of game as long as it good, and gamers that refuse to play "certain games" no matter the quality just because they dislike how they look or the characters involved.



Yomerodes commented on Nintendo Confirms Club Nintendo Promotion for ...:


Hahahaha,.,.no. That would be almost like giving free pokemon games to at least 50% 3DS joke, Mario 3D Land, Animal Crossing and Mario Kart 7 are that popular.

This promo is obviously designed to spur the system sales in infamously slow month in this industry, and being the end of the fiscal year a big point to get all the extra sales possible. The promo is not designed to garner the sympathy of the persons that already have the system.

But of course, Nintendo can't avoid that some (a vast minority) of already 3DS users have by coincidence some unregistered codes to enter into this promos. I for one have a system code and multiple first party titles codes (Ocarina, STar Fox, Luigi's Mansion, Kid Icarus)...but rotten luck, none of them enters in the promo (I have 3D Land and New Leaf, but both already registered). This promo is going to give them at least one extra Yohsi New's Island sale, mine.



Yomerodes commented on Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth Heading to ...:


I am also a Persona fan while I have never been into the EO series, but I disagree with you. I liked the EO IV demo, the cute artstyle of the characters was nice, the gameplay mechanics sound and the dungeon mapping quite addictive...but I completely disliked the lack of character narrative and weak character interaction, while on the other hand, Untold Millenium Girl turned me off with the unimpressive cast and archaic (as in EO 1) mechanics.

Now, this game as I see it is far more than a EO game with a Persona Skin, it is more like a Persona game, with the aesthetics and first person navigation of EO and with any luck, the create your own map mechanic. This would actually take the best parts of EO, while also removing the worst part of Persona (the generic third person dungeon crawling, yuck), while giving us zany and funny interaction and character dialogue with the best of both the most recent Personas.



Yomerodes commented on Nintendo Confirms Club Nintendo Promotion for ...:


Since I too live in Latin America I got what you are saying...that is the reason why I told Nintendo in all my procedures a little white lie and set my region to U.S.A. ever since I got my first 3DS in 2012, and also when I created my NNID...cheaper games and more promotions, with little to no drawbacks.

Now if only one of my multiple first party games was eligible for this promo, curse you Nintendo.



Yomerodes commented on Nintendo Confirms Club Nintendo Promotion for ...:

DAMN...Nintendo sure know how to make me get games that I was not going to get it in the first place.

I have at hand an unregistered code for a 3DS...but, while I have Animal Crossing, Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7, they are already registered, or can't be registered anymore. Meanwhile, I have unregistered codes of Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon, the game can almost two years after Mario 3D land what arbitrary reason left that game out of this promo?

At this rate, I will have to donwload Yoshi New Island (I have DK on Wii already) other words, get Yoshi and Pokemon for the price of just Yoshi...the issue is that I was not THAT interested in getting any of those two games at full price, but the perspective of getting TWO new first party games at the price of one is difficult to ignore...oh, decisions, decisions.



Yomerodes commented on Nintendo Releasing a Wii Sports Club Wii U Har...:

Offering the other two sports as "future free passes" might be dangerous if they are NOT sure they are releasing them. Sure it was talked about...but Baseball and Box were BY FAR the less popular games in the original Wii Sports, and if the golf, bowling and tennis didn't catch the world in fire, those remaining two have zero chances of doing better.
Considering the ammount of work and programming they would need to perfect the perfect motion plus controls and online, they might not be seen as a worthwhile investment.



Yomerodes commented on Senran Kagura Burst Pre-Order Bonuses Announce...:

That is nice...but It still dissapoints me that MAQL Europe decided to ditch Rune Factory 4...I am not saying that they should had cancelled Senran Kagura, but I believe european players would have preferred to have both games available if only digital...instead of cancelling RF4 and releasing SK in both formats.



Yomerodes commented on Sakurai Reiterates That There'll Be No Subspac...:

The melee style adventure mode is also not that good. Most of the actual "stages" were just basic brawl with a few gimmicks, and the rigid nature made multiple playtroughs a chore.

The best way to implement a new adventure mode would be IMO, to create a couple of adventure stages for each universe, and play some of them (around 5, for example) in a randomized order in each playtrough, in order to make multiple plays not a chore. That would be a good compromise from the rigid and lacking 2D stages in melee against the overabundance and generic 2D stages in Brawl.



Yomerodes commented on Rune Factory 4 European Release Has Been Cance...:

Too bad, the game is indeed amazing. IMO it is strange that Senran Kagura (a good game by itself, but not on Rune Factory level) is getting a premium release in Europe both digital and retail by Marvelous Europe, but they decided to ditch RF istead. As with the lack of Trauma Team and Arc Rise Fantasia (and no, its not sarcasm, I loved the game) I feel deeply sorry for you europals.



Yomerodes commented on Feature: Time to Vote For Your Game of the Yea...:

The eurocentric natire of this site was the reason why SMT IV was nominated in only one category (in that way, we might as well be thankful it was mentioned at all in the 3DS third party retail bracket)...a shame. It still didn't stop me from voting for it in every possible bracket, it was my overall game of the year, by FAR.



Yomerodes commented on Review: Jett Rocket II - The Wrath of Taikai (...:

Shinen games were legends in WiiWare because the competition was horrible...but the Eshop today is a brave new world, and the games will need far more than a glossy finish and some graphics mumbo jumbo to catch the attention of the users.
