Zapkido commented on Rumour: Dubious Walmart Listing Suggests Suppo...:

@NodesforNoids I meant nostalgic in the sense that I played it as a child and remember it fondly because of that, but perhaps you're right.

Yet even when not compared to its genre or series, Sticker Star is a mess of a game due to its gameplay problems, as well as others. Its main gameplay, the fighting, is unnecessary, there is a ton of trial and error, puzzles with no room for error, etc. Its other gameplay, world exploring, is just okay but is complemented by its music and art style. It feels a bit like you ignored most of my comment, which details the gameplay flaws that overall make Sticker Star terrible.

@dequesi I beg to differ. As someone who has no nostalgic bias, here's why Sticker Tsar is literally one of the worst games I've ever played:

Pros: Great soundtrack, awesome visual style, neat concept
Cons: Battling is unnecessary: you fight with stickers to get coins to get stickers to get coins to...
The boss fights are trial and error your first time through unless you have the one correct sticker that makes it a total cakewalk.
Serious lack of creativity. Every character is an established Mario character and are incredibly boring (even Bowser!) with the exception of Kersti.
None of that Paper Mario charm like every other game in the series had.
Extremely vague puzzles that require a specific object. Did I mention that the puzzles have no room for error? Nah, the only kind of ball that can knock down pins is a bowling ball, nothing else...same with that snow melting puzzle...

Ugh, I could go on and on about this mess of a game...

Zapkido commented on Review: Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal (3DS):

The demo was pretty good and I enjoyed the exploration aspect, but the fact that it is mandatory kind of detracts from my desire to buy this game. I enjoy exploring but sometimes I just want to go fast. Yeah- going fast in a Sonic game.

Zapkido commented on Nintendo 64x64: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina o...:

@antdickens The problem with judging games for their time is that many Ocarina fans still declare it the greatest game of all time. Many say, "Oh it was revolutionary back then," but then state it's better than games today as if that justifies it. You know what was revolutionary? Pong. Why isn't Pong at the top of lists? Because people look at it objectively and compare it to what we have today. But many Ocarina Fans fail to do such a thing, and don't compare it to what we have today.

I'm not trying to attack you nor am I mad at you, I'm just saying. After playing through Ocarina today with no bias, I can say that it is great for its time and still pretty good now, but in my opinion, other Zeldas do what it does better (except music. Oh yes, that music!)

Zapkido commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

Okay... Cups and characters, fine, but non-Mario characters? What is this, Super Smash Kart?

I'm really excited for this, I'd just prefer if the new characters were Mario characters that everybody's been asking for. Link riding a motorcycle is just kind of...odd.

@Memeboy3 Yes, I realize that we are lucky to have rewards at all, but when you do all this extra work filling out surveys, this is what we get? A $20 game? It's just frustrating.

I'm personally sort of satisfied with DKCR3D, but I would've like something worth more than $20 and available to everyone. I see why people are complaining though.

@NameDifferent It's simply a kick to the balls. We spend over $500 dollars buying their stuff and filling out their surveys and this is what we get for it? The game with the most value is only like $20! Think about it:

Buy MK8:Get a $60 game
Buy $500 Dollars of Nintendo games and fill out a ton of surveys: Get a $20 game.

What?! And that doesn't even bring into consideration the fact that people who have bought these games get NOTHING for their efforts!

Plus, half of these games are not exclusive to members, which defeats the purpose of "Elite" Status.
