aj_fowl commented on Feature: A Year in Development - Renegade Kid:

@Yomerodes from what I have found, RK had no idea that they'd get the rights back this year. Back in March they were under the impression that it would never happen.

I think the fact that the PC port bombed is what lead to the publisher releasing the rights back.



aj_fowl commented on Digital Foundry Gives Its Take on Watch Dogs f...:

@kensredemption I'd swear that DF uses software that doesn't work right on Wii U hardware. I've seen a lot of game play for this game, and even in the DF video were it's supposedly running at 15 fps, it looks higher. I've played games at 15 fps on PC before, watchdogs on Wii U does not get that low.



aj_fowl commented on These Official Wisdom Tree T-Shirts Are So Bad...:

@sketchturner I played that one. My first gaming experience was on a PC. Two of the five games we had were Wisdom Tree games, but the good ones. Spiritual Warfare was my first action adventure game and my gateway into Zelda. I know, it's backwards. The other was Joshua, a challenging and surprisingly good action puzzle game.

@3dcaleb Unfortunately this is a type of game that's really difficult to make a demo for. Most people agree that the demo was made for fans of the series. It's not even close to what the game actually offers. My cousin played the demo and couldn't understand why I liked it so much. I let him borrow my card and he bought it from me two weeks later.



aj_fowl commented on Retro City Rampage DX is "Doing Great" on 3DS:

@Gen0neD On Miiverse he gave reasons why he didn't include it. He'd have to redue a lot of the game code to include 3D, plus it apparently didn't look that impressive being a 2D top down game. People have suggested that he add it to the minigames though. He might do that since the checkpoints and garages where requested on Miiverse.



aj_fowl commented on Review: Retro City Rampage: DX (3DS eShop):

@unrandomsam I haven't missed the twin stick shooting. The auto-aim is quite good and feels rights for this game. If you hold down the L button your character fires in whatever direction you point the circle pad or d-pad in. I don't find myself using it much.



aj_fowl commented on Silent Hill: Shattered Memories Was "A Great O...:

@Einherjar If you thought they were intense on Game Grumps then you'd be screwed if you actually played it. Not only are you in control and have to make quick choices, but the Wii remote adds to the terror. As enemies draw near your remote starts going crazy with static. If Harry's health gets low you feel his heartbeat through vibrations.



aj_fowl commented on Say What You Will About Nabbit, But He's Helpe...:

I see a Vita, a Wii U, a 3DSXL with a circle pad, and the keyboard/mouse combo suggest that he's got a PC hooked up to his tv. Wow, these guys are real hardcore gamers. You don't see that many of those on Youtube anymore.



aj_fowl commented on Say Hello To The Nintendo 2DS - A 3DS without 3D:

@drumsandperc92 The target audience for this is children below the age of 7. Nintendo highly suggest disabling the 3D for them anyway, now parents don't need to worry about it. And having two young brothers, I can promise you that the most broken piece to any DS/3DS is the hinge. And look, Pokemon comes out on the same day. There are a lot of young children that don't have a 3DS and now Nintendo is making one just for them on the day that X and Y come out. That alone will help so much with repair cost. And guessing by the size of it, the battery life on this thing will be huge.

Speaking of the size, how many kids under 7 can even fit a 3DS in their tiny pockets? None because they all have Nerf armor on them because their parents don't want it broken. Have you ever seen a 4 year old carrying around a DSiXL in Nerf armor, it's more adorable then kittens. Well, it's funny anyway.

And as a final point, this thing would be amazing for VC games. The D-pad is a little more accessible.
