chiptoon commented on Feature: Behind the Scenes of SteamWorld Heist:

I was so excited for this game. I absolutely loved Dig.
But the timing is AWFUL. after a year with long stretches of nothing to play I now have a list of around 5 other games to choose from, two of which I'm already playing.

I'll get it eventually though.

chiptoon commented on Video: Remembering Bubsy The Bobcat, The 16-bi...:

Bubsy was a game I really really wanted when it first came out. I adored Sonic, and while it didn't look quite as good, it looked similar, and if I recall correctly it scored pretty well in CVG.

I finally got to play it at a friends house and was thrilled that I hadn't spent money on it. It was so disappointing.

chiptoon commented on This Is The Last Real Console Cycle, Proclaims...:

problem isn't with the consoles though. Its with the cost of console games and the length of time and dedication it takes to play them .

How many more would play if they didn't need a dedicated console. Very very few I recon, unless they follow a free to play model.

chiptoon commented on Review: Devil's Third (Wii U):

The multiplayer sounds so interesting, but I really think the ability to pay for huge advantage will completely break it.

Really tempted to buy this on sale though.

chiptoon commented on Industry Analysts Speculate On Nintendo's Futu...:

I find statements like "They're behind the curve on online multiplayer gaming, and in online community infrastructure in general" strange, despite how often they are repeated.

They don't do it like everyone else, but they have incredible success with what they do. Mario Kart and Splatoon and Miiverse are all proof of that.

chiptoon commented on First Impressions: Trying to Believe in Devil'...:

I had no interest in this game until these bad previews came out. They remind me of reviews of Disaster: Day of Crisis and especially the first Red Steel, both games I had a great time with.

Not to say that I don't believe the criticisms, but just that I might not care, and that I've come to realise that I might have some strange tastes.

chiptoon commented on 3D Streets Of Rage 2 Hits North America & Euro...:

so torn on this one. I played the game too much in my youth, which makes me want to have it on my 3DS fro nostalgic reasons, but also makes me aware that I would likely only play it 2 or 3 times, before excessive familiarity kills the fun.

chiptoon commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Shipping This Time Next Ye...:

If they only showed it to potential partners this year they would be launching in 2016 with close to no 3rd party support. Devs would have to have close to final dev kits right now to hope to even port a game over for that release date

chiptoon commented on Talking Point: Metroid Prime: Federation Force...:

I think it looks great now, even though I was initially disappointed. I'm looking forward to it.
But I'm horrified that this is still an issue, and worse that 6000 pricks want a game cancelled and actually feel they have a right to demand it. Of all the things in the world to give a damn about!

chiptoon commented on Metroid Prime: Federation Force:

like many people, I felt a bit punched in the gut when this was revealed. Not the Metroid I was asking for. Yet the more I watch the videos the more I'm looking forward to it. In fact I think it looks pretty fun.

chiptoon commented on Bravely Second Offers Over 100 Hours Of Gamepl...:

I only heard positive things about the first one. But i gave up after about 40 hours due to being bored by grinding and repetition. Strange now to see from the comments here how many people felt the same.

100 hours = no thanks

chiptoon commented on Feature: Ten Must-Play Games for the Nintendo 3DS:

Its a good top 10, but sadly I don't feel that there are many 'must play' games on 3DS for me. Link between Worlds and Super Mario 3D Land are probably the only 2 that I still think about, the rest were great fun, but not especially memorable.

chiptoon commented on Zelda Lookalike Oceanhorn: Monster Of Uncharte...:

Looks pretty great to me. Not sure why all the complaining. Personally I'm glad to see another colorful adventure, there's not enough of those these days.

I don't see it as a Zelda clone. The boat bit is a lot like Wind Waker, yes, but the rest? I know a lot of games that played in a similar way, Zelda's just the best, and best known.

I also get the sense that a lot of effort has gone into this, a lot of love. I'm in.
