Zhanglot commented on Rhythm Hunter: HarmoKnight's US Price Is Revealed:

Holy crap, was not expecting this. Though, when I first saw the trailer for this, it did look like a full retail game. Well, I need to buy some more eshop credit anyways, 'cause FEA DLC is driving me broke. I think I will get this game, provided it has enough content to warrant its price. I enjoy music games and I have faith in gamefreak.



Zhanglot commented on Talking Point: The Message in "I'm Not a Gamer...:

Personally, I think it's a great campaign, but the reaction of consumers proves otherwise. Any advertisement that can be potentially confusing or misleading is a bad one.

I like Boo_Buster's suggestion of removing the "I'm not a gamer part". That way no one perceives it negatively.



Zhanglot commented on MCV: Wii U Is A Stopgap System, Real Successor...:

I seem to agree with this perspective. To be honest, I wasn't that impressed with WiiU from the get go. The hardware is just on par with current 7th gen consoles and I'm sure it'll fall behind when Sony and Microsoft release their new systems. I know Nintendo has been focusing on 'innovative' gameplay by incorporating the gamepad as major and unique part of the WiiU experience, but, while it is cool, it's kind of gimicky. It won't be enough to last the full 8 years of a standard console lifespan. I wouldn't be surprised if 4/5 years down the road Nintendo releases their next console.



Zhanglot commented on Pokémon Black and White 2 Designed for Dedica...:

No, I am not excited for this. I used to be a competitive battler, but retired when I entered high school (I was mainly in the gen IV era). Making EVs and IVs this easily attainable is not something I appreciate. The Power item IV breeding in HG/SS was a good thing, but I think BW2 is taking it over the top. Part of the reason Pokemon was great was because of the challenge of getting the perfect Pokemon,
Training to lvl 100 is also absolute bull. They should've kept lvl 100 wifi battles intact.



Zhanglot commented on Ever Wonder Why Pokémon Black And White 2 Isn...:

I was really disappointed to discover that B/W 2 would only be on DS. I felt Generation 5 was a bit too much for the DS to handle. In the original BW, they introduced many things like the kind of "3D on 2D" if you know what I mean ( most pominantly in Castelia. Also, the constantly moving battle animations. It resulted in what I felt as an inferior gaming experience. Coming off of HG/SS which had one of the cleanest graphics styles, B/W really disappointed me. I was hoping they could use the 3DS' much improved power to smooth the edges in terms of graphics.

One last thing that really pisses me off. I don't know how many people have noticed, but when you play DS pokemon games on the 3DS, the picture is blurry. It has something to do with the screen resolution and the way the pokemon games' graphics work (it's like a pixelated art style, the DS Legend of Zelda games don't have this problem on 3DS). 3DS owners' only option is to either play the game in its natural resolution (which is like, a quarter of the 3DS' screen, or to play the game but "expanded" and therefore blurrier on the full 3DS screen. Sorry I don't know the proper terms and whatnot. I'm not a techie. BUT WHAT I DO KNOW IS THAT THE GAMING EXPERIENCE IS INFERIOR WHEN PLAYED ON A 3DS.



Zhanglot commented on Sumo Digital Declares Wii U Capabilities to be...:

It seems nintendo is kind of lagging a generation behind in terms of hardware capabilities, but personally, I'm fine with that. The WiiU is able to play 1080p HD video which is enough. For me, games are more about fun and innovative gameplay rather than graphics.
