I usually don't care for things like this since they seem to have little effect, but this campaign has had crazy exposure and has actually helped raise a ton of money for the cause. I will be ecstatic if Reggie gets in on the action.

I fully expect this to be fairly mindless. Most of the side-scrolling beat 'em ups and hack an' slashes were much the same way. The appeal is in feeling like the ultimate badass by mowing down waves of mooks all by your lonesome. If this game can give me that, with some great variety of characters, it'll meet my expectations just fine.



ariwl1 commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3?:

I think Nintendo absolutely nailed it this year. The direct had very few lulls to it, and all the new games were great. The steady stream of demos throughout the show were much appreciated and the Smash tournament was an awesome gesture.

I can't say they won all of E3 since I didn't pay attention to Sony and MS and can't properly compare, but in terms of my personal satisfaction they won it all.

@khululy I hear that. I think that's the other part people like about sim games. Things move forward at the speed they want them to. If you want to stop and dink around without worrying about things like job and family you can with little penalty and no guilt trips.

I think the addictive fun of life Sim games is experiencing life at a breakneck pace. Most Sim games allow you to do things in a few hours of game time that would take you months or even years in real life like making friends, pursuing a career, building a house, getting married, etc. And if it all goes sour or you just get bored with it you can start all over and do something new with nothing lost except time you probably would have spent on other games anyways.



ariwl1 commented on Review: Tomodachi Life (3DS):

Thought this might be good as a download title to flip open when I want a break from whatever regular game card I had at the time. Looks like the review confirms that.

The majority of the characters (if you don't count the babies) aren't even human and thus are race neutral. Squeezing diversity into a fantasy world that thrives on unrealistic characters is a pretty high demand.

I completely forgot about SP points most of the time. It was never an essential part of any battle strategy I had and a lot of the time the only reason I even used one was because my finger accidentally hit the start button. They aren't at all necessary to play the game and I had my settings on normal up until CH5 and beyond.
