bennyt commented on First Impressions: Learning to Fly With Rodea ...:

I was still on the fence about this game but at the mention of Gravity Rush, my interest in this has certainly gone up a notch. Absolutely loved GR (certainly one of my favourite games ever) & the ability to fly & hurl around among many things, so if the controls/flying are similar to that, I may just pick this up for the 3ds when it releases in October.

Seems like it could be a bit of a hidden gem.



bennyt commented on Poll: How Excited Are You About Nintendo's E3 ...:

Already sold on Yoshi's Woolly World and Super Mario Maker anyway so definitely getting them for sure, along with Yokai Watch, Hatsune Miku Project Mirai and Rodea the Sky Soldier for the 3ds later in the year (disappointed nothing shown regarding those last two).

As for the rest, I'll keep an eye on just outta curiosity, especially XCX, Mario Tennis & AC:HHD for the younger brother. Otherwise, I'm good with my five above.



bennyt commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

Hmm, bit of a mixed bag for myself but interesting nonetheless.

Loved the Puppets idea and super excited for Yokai Watch, Super Mario Maker and Yoshi Woolly World. As for the rest, certainly not as epic as previous years and I can under the disappointment with Animal Crossing, Starfox, M&L x Paper Mario and Metroid shown.

Still gonna keep an eye on them anyway, as there's some interesting ideas there. Just a bit more variety would have been nice though.



bennyt commented on Feature: Our Hopes and Dreams for Nintendo at ...:

Knowing Nintendo it'll certainly be full of surprises so very much looking forward to it. I have my doubts of course but I'd personally love to see or hear about:

Some news regarding a sequel on Rhythm Thief and the Emperors Treasure please!
More Captain Toad &/or Bayonetta goodness.
WarioWare 3ds or a new Wario Land game.
Footage/gameplay on that Pokemon fighting arcade game.
HD remake of Super Mario Sunshine.

& of course any footage or news on Starfox/Xenoblade Chronicles X or reveals on new Metriod/Paper Mario/Animal Crossing would be fab too.



bennyt commented on Video: New Nintendo 3DS In-Depth Review: Episo...:

@King_Johobo Haha whey, nice to see :) I'm actually from England but have been out in Australia since July '14. Got family in Adelaide who I met for the very first time so decided to still around a bit longer. Plus the city is beautiful, so that's another reason ahaha.

As for your question, I personally found the smaller N3DS screen size perfect-not too small that you have to peer at like the original at times yet not too big & like mini laptop when you unfold it like the XL.

Kinda hard to explain unless you see one in person, but if the above sounds good, along with it being actually more easier to carry around (XL in a pocket just doesn't work for me) & you dig the faceplates, I'd say go for the smaller version :)

& if anyone is wondering about drawing on the standard N3DS with Art Academy or Pokemon AA (which alot of my time was spent on when I had an XL), absolutely no problem there with the screen size.



bennyt commented on Video: New Nintendo 3DS In-Depth Review: Episo...:

Great little video Nintendo Life, spot on with everything. Love the Luigi faceplate btw :)

Have to say I'm really impressed with the improved 3d effect and head tracking after picking up my N3DS back packing around Adelaide a few weeks ago. Soo much nicer to play without the fear of tilting the system ever so slightly and losing the immersive effect.

Should have been the handheld that launched those four years or so back with these new features and everything imo but overall, really happy with the N3DS, especially the screen size after coming from the XL-perfect balance, nicely in the middle.

Looking forward to the next video. Keep up the awesome stuff!



bennyt commented on Poll: As the PS4 Arrives, What Do You Think of...:

I have no regrets about buying the WiiU last November & it's been nothing short of a blast & tons of fun with family & friends. Yes, Nintendo could have done things better (but they're slowly getting there, lil' by lil'), the lack of third party support has been a tad disappointing & that i prefer to draw nowadays on MV instead of gaming, i still love the console & thoroughly enjoy the current games on it -The Wonderful 101, LoZ: WW, Pikmin 3, MHU, Nintendo-Land & others.

There's lots to be excited about the console for 2014 with X, MK8 & more on top of the upcoming indie games, so i think the console will do fine. Not great but good enough. But i think SM3DW will be the deciding game for Nintendo - it looks absolutely fantastic & definitely has nailed the Nintendo factor but whether it is successful or not as much should show where Nintendo future stands with the console.
But hey, who knows whats gonna happen this gen with the xbox one, ps4 & WiiU - the world is full of surprises - just sit back, enjoy the games & please give all these arguments/bashing Big N back & forth a break.

Happy gaming.



bennyt commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2013 - Aut...:

Wow, the next couple of months running up to Xmas are looking terrific!
Tough choice as they all look fantastic especially SM3DW & Sonic Lost Worlds. But it has to be LoZ WW for me ^-^ never experienced/played the original before & it looks absolutely stunning so i can't wait.

Looking forward to that lil' figure too with the limited edition version.

♪ Wake me up when September ends♪



bennyt commented on Nintendo's Scott Moffitt: 3DS and Vita Have Ve...:

Pretty much what datamonkey said - the ps vita may not have a particularly large gaming library compared to the 3ds, but there are games there for sure & whats there is certainly good enough - LittleBigPlanet, Persona 4 Golden, Uncharted & Gravity Rush, not to mention the upcoming titles like TearAway, Freedom Wars & more.

I love them both - my 3ds (especially for Rhythm Thief) & some Nintendo goodness & my vita for the games above & its great indie library.

Once X & Y are released though, i'm gonna be all over my 3ds. Do love my Pokemon games ^-^



bennyt commented on Warren Spector Hints At Epic Mickey 3:

I was looking forward to this game and planning on getting it at launch but reviews have been off putting, mentioning the camera, platforming, AI, and several other issues.
Seems it had alot of potential but failed to deliver. As dartmonkey said, Spector does remind me of Molyneuxs, in that he talks the game/series up too much and the end result is disappointing. (I love Fable 1, 2 was good but such a buggy mess and 3, well, don't get me started after all the talk hyping it up)

I would dip into the series if a third epic mickey was released but only if they actually made some improvements and not release a rushed and unpolished game.



bennyt commented on Talking Point: Test Running Rayman Legends:

Played this earlier today and I was very impressed. Loving all the game-pad features such as tickling monsters, moving platforms and omg, the music to the last stage, so catchy, i could listen to that all day...please ubisoft, release a collectors edition or something with an art book and soundtrack, that would be amazing.

Day one easily



bennyt commented on ZombiU Producer "Disappointed" By Early Reviews:

Although i haven't got the game just yet (waiting on the demo), Ubisoft deserve credit for doing something other devs wouldn't have. They took a risk, put a new spin on a genre and sat back waiting to see where the path took them. I've followed the game through onm and each time, it amazes me how much creativity they've put into the game.

As far as reviews go, it seems like Marmite, you either love or hate it. Although i'm not keen on horror games, this game has sparked my interest. High difficulty, no hand holding, pure terror, a showcase of what the game-pad can do...what game offers that nowadays?

Hopefully come next week, ill be experiencing the game and cacking myself....its all good. I would love Ubi to work on Killer Freaks/They came from outer space (with the man-eating rabbids)that would be sick



bennyt commented on Review: Nintendo Land (Wii U):

Just picked up my Nintendo-Land bundle from Game about an hour ago along with NSMBU and Batman but due to work, won't be able to set it up and play til five or six. Looking forward to playing N'Land the most.

Just need Royal Mail to drop off Sonic Racing and I'm all sorted.



bennyt commented on Some Euro Wii U Buyers Reporting A Distinct La...:

Sorry to hear. I'd be gutted if it happened to myself tomorrow as Nintendo Land is the one main retail game I'm really looking forward to the most

Same here. I'm going down early to pick mine up from GAME as I don't have work til midday so I'll give me enough time to collect it, check its all there, head back and hopefully set it up.



bennyt commented on Review: Trine 2: Director's Cut (Wii U eShop):

Sounds good. Does anyone know when this is out in the UK/Europe. If its on the 30th, it may sway me from getting AC3 on Friday

Thankfully its pay day on friday and all my overtime will pay off



bennyt commented on Rayman Legends Won't Arrive Until Q1 2013:

Shame, was my most anticipated game but I'm sure the extra time will be worth while.
Another game to look forward to in 2013 alongside Monster Hunter, Game and Wario and Pikmin 3.
Leaves me with:
Nintendo-Land and Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed as getting on day one and Assassins Creed 3 and NSMBU as possibles

I'm really hoping though that The Wonderful 101 and Scribblenauts Unlimited will make launch day/before Xmas in EU
