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 Take on 3D Streets of Rage 2 With a Pal:
It really sucks that you need 2 copies of the game. Like many people I have two 3DS, my original and an XL and its great for 2 player.
chiptoon commented on Cancelled ZombiU Sequel Prototype Featured Co-...:
Would love more Zombi U. Its such a great game.
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 Preview: We Take Aim at Splatoon to See if It ...:
Wiimote option? don't tell me Nintendo made a shooter that doesn't use the best controller for shooters
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.

Later is way too late. Will probably be on PSN+ by then. Same with Axiom Verge. "Maybe later" is no reason for me to wait, even though I would rather have it on Wii U
chiptoon commented on Nintendo Download: 12th March (Europe):
After weeks of nothing, suddenly 5 games I want in one week. Overwhelmed
chiptoon commented on Tomonobu Itagaki Gives an Update on Devil’s ...:
The visual style of the game really turns me off, yet I remain very interested.
chiptoon commented on 3D Streets Of Rage 2 Rated By Australian Class...:
These days I find side scrolling beat em ups pretty dull and repetitive in terms of gameplay. But SoR2 would be very very tempting. It was always my favorite, especially in 2 player mode.
chiptoon commented on Video: Defy Gravity With These Sonic Lost Worl...:
I know others disgree, but I thought it was far better than decent. I thought it was spectacular. Possibly my favorite after Sonic 2.
chiptoon commented on Video: Guess What, Super Mario Sunshine Looks ...:
I always enjoyed the parts of SMS that I played, but eventually the camera pissed me off so much I just stopped, specifically on a stage requiring you to climb a Ferris wheel.
Would be interested in a remaster if they fixed it up a bit, or even more in a new game that uses the structure of the game
chiptoon commented on Weirdness: Drunken Mario and Luigi Unleash Min...:
sounds more Wario
chiptoon commented on Impressions: Nintendo Made The Right Call With...:
My opinion of the game before the demo was that it seemed a lot like Valkyria Chronicles, which I absolutely love.
Unfortunately after the demo I think its a whole lot like Vakyria Chronicles, just not nearly as good.
chiptoon commented on Mobile Hit Badland Is Coming To The Wii U eShop:
I thought its was pretty , but also pretty dull to play. No thanks.
chiptoon commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:
What a dull list! Surely these are the most obvious choices that will almost all definitely arrive on Wii U? Aren't these all games we already have?
Only one I'm interested in on the whole list is Excitebots, because it was unreleased in my territory.
Only thing that would make me want to rebuy these is if they were in HD, which seems very unlikely to happen.
What about some hidden gems that sold poorly?
chiptoon commented on Interview: Wales Interactive on its Wii U Brea...:
@Sean_Aaron I want to second that! I've been very disappointed by the lack of Wiimote integration for camera control on WiiU.
chiptoon commented on 40 Percent Blasted Off The Price Of Classic St...:
I love shmups, but I honestly still think that's too expensive. I'll bite for under 10

EU 2017! Woooohooo!
chiptoon commented on Feature: Five Reasons To Choose Nintendo 3DS T...:
I'm pretty disappointed by the recent 3ds release schedule. What was once my go to gaming machine hasn't even been charged in over a month, and it was only being used then to replay Cave Story.
Unless you're only buying a 3DS now to catch up on some good games from past years I see nothing of interest on 3DS.
Alternatively I play on my Vita daily its a fantastic machine that is worth the investment just for the amazing indie games and PS+, and Cross-buy.
chiptoon commented on Review: Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal (3DS):
"It's one of the better Sonic outings of recent times, but unfortunately that's not saying an awful lot." ?? several recent Sonic games have been fantastic. Why must people keep writing things like this?
also, as many have said, the demo was utter rubbish. The level design in particular was embarrassing.

and nothing of value was lost
chiptoon commented on Let's Summarise the Remaining eShop Deals on W...:
Darksiders 2 is incredible. Play it.
chiptoon commented on Teslagrad to Arrive at Retail on Wii U in Earl...:
I was surprised not to like this very much. I'd been looking forward to it. I found the physics a bit unpleasant, making the game less fun than I had thought it would be. Then there came several difficulty spikes that made me stop enjoying it altogether, so I never finished it. A shame, because there's so much that is great about it.
chiptoon commented on Feature: Batman Vs. Superman In The Battle Of ...:
After the horror that was Man of Steel I will be giving Batman vs Superman a miss.
On a separate note, the NES Batman is one of my absolute favorites.
chiptoon commented on Review: Thomas Was Alone (Wii U eShop):
I don't know. I played a lot of it on Vita, and despite its charms I found the gameplay iteslf very dull and lost interest.
chiptoon commented on Guide: Getting the Most out of Your amiibo wit...:
I'm reluctant to buy any without seeing them. Sadly Nintendo seems to no longer sell in shops in South Africa, and they're only available online. Seems daft to me.
chiptoon commented on The 3DS Proves to Be a Popular Music Player in...:
My only reason not to would be battery life. Its a killer!
chiptoon commented on New Super Mario Bros. Wii Hits 10 Million Sale...:
10 mill is a lot of players, but its always amazes me how small the reach of video games is in terms of world population.
chiptoon commented on Nintendo Download: 20th November (Europe):
I would only consider Watch Dogs at a huge discount at this point, or possibly as a GotY edition that includes all DLC, but those prices are a joke!
chiptoon commented on Video: Five Vital Tips for Conquering Shovel K...:
@mozie - thanks for the advice! Portability is a big factor for me, but if the controls are better on WiiU then theres no contest.
Every time I consider buying shovel knight I find myself unable to decide between 3DS and WiiU. SO instead I play something else.
chiptoon commented on Teaser Tweet Suggests Binding of Isaac on the 3DS:
Too late for me, just got it for free on Vita.
chiptoon commented on Nintendo Download: 13th November (Europe):
Nintendos release schedule seems crazy to me. After weeks of nothing very interesting now there's 4 games I'm kind of interested in on the same day as the Mario Kat DLC and on week after Shovelknight.
chiptoon commented on Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. Arriving On Nintendo 3DS...:
Seeing a lot of Valkyria Chronicles in here. Which is great news

Terrible time - too late for me in my part of the world

if only it had higher resolution
chiptoon commented on Guide: Tips And Tricks To Get You Started In B...:
I excited to play! I tried the PS3 original so long ago, kind of liked it, but found it a bit hard to follow the action. In fact I quickly found that spamming dodge and waiting for witch time was the only way forward in the fights against scores of minor enemies, since most of the time I wasn't sure where Bayonetta was on the screen.
But I LOVE Platinum and decided to give Bayonetta a 2nd chance on a better platform.
chiptoon commented on Nintendo 64x64: Shadows of the Empire:
Would be really great if this series of articles had screen shots
chiptoon commented on Video: Sanzaru Games Discusses Sonic Boom: Sha...:
Its spectacular how little faith this video has given me in the game.
chiptoon commented on Hardware Review: The New Nintendo 3DS Is The B...:
So is the c-stick not compatible with older titles like Resi Revalations? That would be disspointing. Otherwise I'd love to know how it works for those.
Aside from that I'm not convinced anyone can refer to their XL as 'long-serving'.
chiptoon commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2014 - Fal...:
I'm a bit surprised at how weak this line up is. I want Bayonetta, but could skip the rest. Might go for Captain Toad if its on sale.
chiptoon commented on Actos Games Announces Wii U eShop Exclusive ps...:
half expected it to be called Scarf
actually looks like it could be fun.
chiptoon commented on Shovel Knight Triumphantly Exits Final Testing...:
Its weird, I was so hyped for Shovel Knight, but I read about it so much for the US release I feel a bit over it now. Maybe I'll wait for a sale.
chiptoon commented on First Image Of Wii U Wipeout-Beater FAST Racin...:
Immediately reminds me of the Extreme game on Gamecube - which I loved!
chiptoon commented on The Wonderful 101 Gets a Wonderful Soundtrack ...:
I finally finished the Wonderful 101 a couple of weeks ago. I'd got a bit frustrated at one point, it seemed like it was just repeating itself, and took a break.
But the last 5 hours were the best of the whole game. Its absolutely brilliant, dazzling madness.
