Long time Gamer and comic collector. I've owned every core Nintendo system since the NES except the Virtual Boy. Although a big N loyalist, my favorite system of all time is the Dreamcast. I play all game types but RPG's is my passion. Hate Disney. Trying to not hate Sony.

Zodiak13 commented on Blind Gamer Completes Five-Year Quest To Finis...:

I love this!! Reminds me that sometimes people are just amazing. I am unsure that I would "want" to play a video game if I were blind personally, but now I know that it could be a possibility. Great determination and perseverance.



Zodiak13 commented on Review: The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth (Wii U e...:

This is on my way overrated list. Got this for free on PSN and immediately went to play this. The combat, story, and gore are all ho-hum. I kept playing for a few hours, trying to find this "amazing" game every was talking about, but it doesn't exist apparently. I would give it a 5/10.

This is the reason I love this site. This is a great post and the commenters are on the right track. Also thank you to the people that have nothing good to say, for not saying anything at all. I mean that and not in a sarcastic way. I enjoy reading these comment with some jealousy, as I do not process emotions normally, at least I know how I should feel, which is quite sad.



Zodiak13 commented on Obituary: Satoru Iwata:

A wonderful career and life, my condolences to his family and friends. He left with must achieved, and although much too young, he has a legacy of achievements is vast. RIP.

I own this on every console I own that they made this game on. I will get Day One on both 3ds and WiiU. Will eventually get on PS3 and Vita as well. just a great game to pick up and lose yourself in. Well, the first one at least. Hope this one is as good if not better than the first.



Zodiak13 commented on Rare Replay on Xbox One Will Include 30 Games,...:

Oddly enough, I was never a huge Rare fan, but I did like a few games. Goldeneye and Battletoads were cool. Console shooters after Goldeneye were never my thing (prefer PC controls) and never got into 3D platformers in the 64 days. DK were fun, but never was that amazed by them. I don't think it sucks they are not on Nintendo, because they chose to let rare go, and they own the rights. Seems to be a good value. I read some comments about $ on Nintendo charging to much, but its all about what people are willing to pay. I buy a ton of them, but I am a fanboy as it were. I work for a company that our products cost more, but are customers want what we offer and we get as much $ as we can, because, well, we can. That is business. Nintendo is generally more profitable than not, so they kind of know what they are doing.



Zodiak13 commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Dreamcast:

How am I late to this comment section!!!! Best console ever, waaaaaay ahead of its time. Also home to the best RPG ever, although the GCN version was better. But I spent more time with the DC version. How sad I was when you were discontinued.



Zodiak13 commented on WayForward is Bringing Shantae and Friends to ...:

Apple garbage gadgetware to go along with "smart" phone garbage. A match made in Hades. So glad I have taught my son not to follow trends and own herdware. Hears hoping this does not catch on, but it probably will...



Zodiak13 commented on The Man Behind Fluidity And Stealth Inc Discus...:

I like the fact he is leaving in a professional manner. As someone who runs his own shop, I always prefer when people leave that they leave in a professionally. Sounds like he enjoyed his time and is ready to move on, so best of luck, and if things don't work out, you may have a home to go back to. Nothing in gaming excites me, so I have no real thoughts on the game he was making.



Zodiak13 commented on Chrono Trigger Turns 20, but is Ultimately Tim...:

I have tried this game on 3 occasions, and each time I was left wanting something NOT Chronotrigger. Can't say I see what everyone likes about this one. Oh well, I think Final Fantasy III (VI) just spoiled me on SNES RPG's, because nothing compares in my mind.



Zodiak13 commented on Review: Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. (3DS):

Think I will be getting this. I sure hope all these people who clamor for New IP from Nintendo actually buy this. I get so sick of hearing how everyone wants new IP's but sales never seem justify them doing so.



Zodiak13 commented on Site News: A New Readership Survey Has Appeared:

Ughh, survey monkey reminds of my job, since I fill surveys out near daily at it. I almost stopped when I saw it was them, but NL is awesome so I muddled through. The survey reminded me I should play some games, especially since I selected 25+ game on both questions, and no video game system has been booted up to actually play a game since last August.



Zodiak13 commented on Talking Point: New Nintendo 3DS, Operation Fac...:

After reading some of the most ridiculous comments ever, I have decided that I no longer want to be considered a Nintendo Fanboy. The entitlement on display is amazing, and for something so non profound. I hope to goodness you are that passionate about such things as politics, foreign relations, economic growth and stability and any other thing that actually matters. I guess I am just a guy that really likes Nintendo products and the quality software they produce. Faceplates are cool and I would totally dig them, but jeez, are the reactions justified?! I think not.



Zodiak13 commented on Soapbox: Portable Gaming Forges a Special Rela...:

I have owned every iteration of Nintendo handhelds, and enjoyed them all. Except the micro, that is. A 3DS has not been in my hand a single day since I got it, whether it be original or XL. I was even hospitalized and was woke up 1/2 an hour to go over the next surgery, and I insisted I clear my street pass as my light was green, before they put me back under. Boy, that sounds kinda weird. I probably need some help.



Zodiak13 commented on RCMADIAX Scales Back Wii U Plans for 2015:

@RCMADIAX Too bad that the sales really are not there for you on the U. I will not be getting any games from you on another format since I am just waiting for Nintendo to get out of the console business so I can stop gaming altogether. No PS4 or XBone for me, if only Nintendo didn't make the best games ever keeping me hanging around this hobby. Good luck with your future, I like most of your games, I find myself playing during commercials all the time.



Zodiak13 commented on Impressions: Nintendo Made The Right Call With...:

Played the demo, and I am sad to say now I must buy it. Nintendo is making it very hard to get away from gaming, I just don't have the time for it anymore. But dang this game, at least the demo, was fun. Darn you Nintendo.



Zodiak13 commented on Review: Battleminer (3DS eShop):

@Pokefraker You are welcome to hate my opinion, it would never hurt my feelings. I know I hold an unpopular opinion and I set myself up for backlash if I decide to make it known. Glad to know there are few of us DC enthusiasts left.



Zodiak13 commented on Review: Battleminer (3DS eShop):

@Klobb I will agree on creativity, since that is why I enjoy video games, comics, novels, and music (everything but country). I have zero creativity in the art, music, and writing bones. I will disagree on taste as that is subjective, and I have a diverse library of games from Atari times to current gen systems (sans PS4/XBone). I will admit I despise FPS and Sandbox games (GTA/Saints Row type). I am glad you are able to tell me what I "lack" based on my opinion Minecraft. Appreciate it..



Zodiak13 commented on Review: Battleminer (3DS eShop):

Not surprised Minecraft is garbage and a shoddy clone is even more garbage. Glad that this style of game is banned in my house, I would not want this drivel to infect me or my son.



Zodiak13 commented on Review: Chariot (Wii U eShop):

I agree with the score. Single player is not fun and I hate playing games with other people. Who cares what the score says, if you read the review and you still want it get it. Plus reviews are opinion, which is not truly measurable, I made the mistake of getting this game without waiting for the review, and I regret it. Certainly worse games out their but I did not like the control and honestly I just had zero fun while playing. If other's do, great for them.



Zodiak13 commented on Gunman Clive 2 Delayed for a Few Weeks More:

Right way to go in my opinion. Not a day one buy because I was not as into the game (gameplay preference only), but I will get it later to support the creator of the game. Maybe I will get into this one more than the first, who knows.



Zodiak13 commented on Professional Super Smash Bros. Melee Player Ta...:

I have never played a single SSB game ever. Last fighting type game I played was Killer Instinct on N64. Love Nintendo and I usually buy games from them that I may never play, but I know I will never want to play Smash, so this I will skip. Only thing I can say about this game is that it seems to have a massive amount of content. Looks like everyone else will have a blast, so have fun.



Zodiak13 commented on Soapbox: Sonic, It's Time to Talk:

I actually never liked the 2D Sonic games. I played the ones on the Dreamcast, and my son played one on 360 and those were enjoyable. Lost World seems like I would enjoy it. It is disappointing that Sonic fans seem to be forced to endure extreme varying degrees of quality in games. As a Nintendo/Mario fan, there have been no games that "I" played of the series that I thought wee bad. I hope the Sonic series finds its footing for the sake of Sonic fans and gamers alike.



Zodiak13 commented on Feature: Five Reasons To Choose Wii U This Hol...:

PS4 and XBone games are waaaay worse than launch year WiiU yet the mindless masses still bought them in droves. If you like actual good games that are just fun to play, go Nintendo. You want to follow the herd and play FPS and sandbox crap like GTA Sony and MS got you covered. Thank goodness the only other college educated person in my shop also loves the WiiU/3DS, otherwise I would fire everyone talking about how they FF killed each other and whine about the quality of everyone's skills. 3 of these guys borrowed from there 401k to buy XBone's or PS4 just for COD. Wow, just wow.



Zodiak13 commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

I have curbed my Sony hate slowly but surely over the last year and even picked up a Vita and PS3. The Vita is a nice system, but I only own 4 games, and those I enjoy. The main reason I play it is for the free content that comes from PS+ which of my countless downloads 3 were actually fun. The system is great, but the quantity of quality games is lacking. I am sure my "fanboyism" plays a role but I log waaaaay more time on the 3DS and I can't even catch up my backlog when another "must have" game comes out for it. Wii thing may be true, but I love my WiiU as well.



Zodiak13 commented on Review: Flapp & Zegeta (Wii U eShop):

@Pod Deserve? Nothing is forcing anyone to buy this game, having it on the e-shop does not somehow make any other game around it worse, like it could infect other games with its crappiness. Obviously if you can get on the eshop, you have the ability to go to or metacritic and find reviews to make an informed purchase.



Zodiak13 commented on Review: Flapp & Zegeta (Wii U eShop):

@sinalefa I know, I think I was on that thread at the time. I prefer the honesty instead of blowing smoke. Got to make a living and I know that RCMADIAX is trying to create a game he has actually been putting a bunch of time into, or at the very least more time.



Zodiak13 commented on Review: Flapp & Zegeta (Wii U eShop):

@sinalefa I have all of RCMADIAX's games and they all function correctly. Heck, I have enjoyed the even. Spikey Wall's was not my favorite but the price is very low and the developer has never claimed to do anything but inexpensive quick play games. I have personally sunk 22 hours on Poker Dice Solitaire Future. Play it during commercials while I watch tv shows.
