Adam commented on Review: Bit Boy!! ARCADE (3DS eShop):

The music from that trailer was pretty good. And the game actually does look a whole lot better than the original, which unfortunately is the least praise I can give a game. The developer interacting with the hero directly is pretty hilarious as a concept, too. I never expected to say so much semi-positive about a Bit Boy sequel. I hope if they do keep making these that it eventually results in a game I'd want to play because it is a fun concept.

"for whatever reason Kubi sounds an awful lot like popular depictions of Satan." For reasons of accurate portrayal, perhaps?

Adam commented on Ninterview: Jason "Mew2King" Zimmerman on Mast...:

Brawl is very different from Melee. The game speed alone is enough to make that obvious. Characters run and fall much slower. The floatiness is something a lot of people dislike. It isn't an upgrade. Some would say it is a major downgrade. I would say it's different and not degrade other people's opinions by acting like my opinion overrides theirs. Both are fun games. My preference is for Brawl, but both are still worth playing because they're so different.

Adam commented on Ninterview: Jason "Mew2King" Zimmerman on Mast...:

Just because you value grabbing people and throwing them on the ground more doesn't mean people who have different values have no life or have no noteworthy accomplishments off the couch. Wrestling is of no greater consequence than video games. Both are entertainment and something to challenge ourselves in. You shouldn't be so condescending and judgmental. There are polite ways to disagree with people.

Adam commented on Ninterview: Jason "Mew2King" Zimmerman on Mast...:

I hope people who watch the first video in this thread watch the second for a sense of how "professional" these interviews tend to be. He isn't interviewing with Charlie Rose. The quote from the first one should not be treated so seriously. The idea that Ice Climbers are making the game boring (I think that's what was said?) may in fact be true, but the delivery did not seem disrespectful so much as humorously (and obviously) exaggerated.

And if you want a sense of context for the Ice Climbers in pro games, look up Wobbling. I don't know if that's what they're talking about in the video since it is so brief, but it is certainly something that makes them annoying, or at least appear to be (I don't play against anyone so pro as to use the exploit on me).

He is just talking confident like athletes do all the time. Being the best doesn't mean being completely unbeatable. He didn't say anything hurtful to anyone else in the interview to earn some of the judgmental and overly critical comments.

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

Well, this is the first time I open a Nintendo product and don't immediately register it. Glad I sat on this code all month now. Not sure I really feel like tens of hours of walking back and forth pressing A to grind, but it's at least good trading fodder if I don't download it myself.

Adam commented on A Sonic Boom Game is Dashing Towards Wii U and...:

They all look the same as always except for Knuckles suddenly being a linebacker. Well, I have no idea who pink person is, but looks like a standard Sonic character.

The game looks a little better than normal, which is to say maybe decent. I mean, I can generally give anything a shot if I get to fight against Shai-Hulud. (Bless Him and His Water. Bless His coming and His going.)

Adam commented on Team Meat's Name Originated From a "Random" Ni...:

I like their analogy.

I would hardly call anything they make "easy money." They aren't making Candy Crushes. They are just targeting what they consider the most suitable platforms for their content. You have to realize they are two people. It's not a big studio floating on a boatload of cash. People like to idealize those who take risks, but some people are not in a position to take risks, at least to such a great degree.

I don't think anyone here would be making bold statements about what other people should do with their money if they just made a game that they worked on obsessively for a couple years without a side-job. (Random number, I forget how long they worked on Super Meat Boy and have no idea what they're working on now.)

Adam commented on Creative Racer, Velocity Stream, Could Be Spee...:

Neat gimmick, but track creation isn't new. All this does is prevent one player from playing. Looks fun because futuristic racers and track editors are both neat, but the main selling point just seems unnecessary. Guess I'd have to experience it to get an idea for how different it is to make tracks while they are being raced.

Adam commented on Weirdness: Japanese Gamer Clears Ocarina Of Ti...:

I once tried playing Bit Trip Beat's four-player mode by myself. If the paddle's didn't shrink quite so much, it would have been do-able. Two-handed Bit Trip Beat is still fun. I should try just two feet one day. Nice way to keep hands open for a sandwich.

Adam commented on Video: Learn How To Play Mega Man: The Board ...:

They could mean this iteration of the rules / conponents hasn't been approved yet. Presumably Capcom has already approved them to make the game....

It doesn't look complicated, from the few minutes I was able to watch before I feared I'd die of boredom. Looks like Munchkin but even worse, somehow.

Adam commented on Western Version Of Bravely Default Features Co...:

Looks significantly less embarrassing now. Character designers need to decide if they want their characters to look like children or pin-up models and stick to one or the other. Mixing the two is just awkward.

Adam commented on Dr. Luigi announced for Wii U eShop:

If this didn't look exactly like Dr. Mario Rx but with a new mode I'm not interested in, I'd be excited. Dr. Mario in any form is generally greatness.

Adam commented on Mega Man Board Game Hits Kickstarter:

The fact that they have lots of great pictures of miniatures and next to zero information on how the game plays makes me expect very little here. If I were into painting, I would be interested for the figures alone, though.

I'm not sure if Jasco has made board games before. I only know of their work on UFS, which they bought and didn't design from scratch, so I'm not sure what kind of designers they have there.

Really curious as to how this is going to work, but not near curious enough to back.

Adam commented on Rumour: Smash Bros. Heading for a Spring 2014 ...:

I would think the previews would be coming out faster if this were true. It has never sounded like Sakurai felt close to finished. I feel as if they would not have left this big of news to Nintendo of Germany to announce.

Adam commented on Eiji Aonuma Wants it to be "Fun To Get Stuck" ...:

They should just make an easy mode where the game gives more hints, or a Super Navi Guide that you can choose to ignore, ideally saying Hey! Listen! repeatedly.

But this sounds good. The item rental system is already plenty enough to distinguish it from other Zeldas and other companies' games, so I certainly don't see it as releasing the same game over and over. We will see more when it's out and can actually make informed claims.

Adam commented on Shovel Knight Now Scheduled For A "Winter" Rel...:

Kickstarter projects tend to be delayed, so I'm not surprised, though this is the first video game project I checked out. I didn't back it, so I can't say I have any cause for disappointment, but it does look like something I'll buy when it comes out.

Adam commented on Former Nintendo Marketing Specialist Sheds Lig...:

I am perfectly capable of understanding as is. It is just a silly explanation. If the content of their own game misrepresents their own franchises, then the stream and tournament are not the problem. People watching Evo already know who Mario is and what he is about. These are people who live for games. They have seen Smash before.

Adam commented on Former Nintendo Marketing Specialist Sheds Lig...:

That is kind of ridiculous. The people who watch Evo know what Mario's supposed to be like. And it isn't like he is extra violent here. He punches, kicks, shoots fireballs, etc. in his own games. The content isn't being hacked, they are broadcasting the same content that Nintendo themselves developed. Of course commentators may say things Nintendo doesn't like, but so might reviewers or anyone else.

Adam commented on Ripstone Confirms Details for Knytt Undergroun...:

Knytt has cursing!? That doesn't necessarily bother me, but it does not fit with my memories of the PC games at all. It was completely minimalistic with little dialog if any — pretty sure it was none.
