Nice to hear it's looking promising. I really hope the micro transactions aren't too bad.
At this point I'm just buying the game to have it. It's such an interesting curio. If I end up having fun with it, then that's a plus

C-Olimar commented on It All Gets Crazy in This Devil's Third Launch...:

I'm surprised at how many people commenting are buying the game. Perhaps if sales are decent enough we'll get the support of a patch or two to help solve some of the issues the game currently possesses?
This kind of game really suits DLC as well, so I hope that isn't off the table.

C-Olimar commented on The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Dated, P...:

Surprising but sensible approach. The series wouldn't usually attract many sales outside its core fan base, so make an attractive retail version with larger profit margins to satisfy this fanbase, with a free to start eShop model to attract new fans.
Free to play/start is definitely a good choice for Nintendo when releasing games in its more niche exclusive series. (Steel Diver as another example).

C-Olimar commented on Speculation Grows That AMD Will Provide the Ni...:

@Nintend0ro Having two consoles set up isn't ideal, especially as I already have a PS3 and Xbox 360, with a PS4 inevitable. There's limited space in my set up.
I'm more concerned about download titles anyway. All those titles available on the eShop would require new versions to run on the new hardware without backwards compatibility. Plus I'd have to pay for them again :/
I'm hoping for a 3DS-DSiWare style integration of the NX and Wii U eShops, whereby Wii U titles are available to download and play on NX, provided you own the necessary controllers.

I'm already doubtful I'll buy the NX at launch, but no backwards compatibility would seal the deal. We already know the NX is going to take a while to attain a strong software catalogue - it's a Nintendo console - so without Wii and Wii U game support the console is far less attractive to me.

C-Olimar commented on Review: G.G Series GREAT WHIP ADVENTURE (DSiWare):

I'm surprised at how good these g.g.games actually are, it's just a shame no one cares about them.
The publisher could have done a better job though. Dumping them all out on the same day is a great way to cannibalise sales.

@Godlygamer Yeah, there just doesn't seem to be much interest in DSiWare.
My excuse is Nintendo's insistence in only letting you launch DSiWare from the paltry system memory. I have plenty of space left on my SD Card, and would buy more DSiWare if I didn't have to faff about with save data to do so.

C-Olimar commented on Metroid Prime: Federation Force Is The Metroid...:

Next Level? So what is Retro working on? Weren't we promised we'd see it at this year's E3.
I'm so disappointed we get this in lieu of a real Metroid game. Having said that, I'm sure it's really fun. I'll probably buy it.
