Dizzard commented on First Impressions: Hands On With Playtonic's Y...:

As much as I have fond memories of playing the original Banjo Kazooie, I can't help but wonder if this game is going to stand out on it's own merits or just end up being "We desperately want to relive the glory days of Banjo-Kazooie!": The Game.

It still looks like heaps of fun though.

Dizzard commented on Weirdness: Street Fighter's Ryu is Now Being R...:

Not impressed with this. The thought of another Marth clone annoys me to no end. I don't have anything against Ryu really but there are numerous other characters I'm more interested in. He's not really on my radar.

I'd probably buy Ryu and pass on Roy.

I wonder if the ballot means anything at all or is it just to keep us amused....

Dizzard commented on Nintendo Download: 16th April (Europe):

I voted smash dlc but what I really mean is I'll be downloading Mewtwo.

I'm not really sold on the Mii costumes. I might get the Dunban outfit and leave it at that.

Dizzard commented on Poll: Which Characters Do You Want to Win the ...:

There's no way Shovel Knight is getting in, totally hopeless. Shovel Knight hasn't even been released in Japan. They haven't a clue who he is.

I heard Nintendo of America had to beg Sakurai just to get that CommanderVideo trophy in the game.

Dizzard commented on MewTwo And Lucas Confirmed As Super Smash Bros...:

I'm still spinning from the thought of being able to vote in the ballot for Isaac from Golden Sun. That game was such a huge part of my childhood and Isaac has huge moveset potential, how on earth do I condense that into 500 characters or less?

Dizzard commented on Poll: Vote For Your Ten Must-Play Games On Nin...:

@LinkSword Yeah I agree with this.

It's still a bit odd that physical games and eShop games are being separated like that. They're all on the 3DS aren't they? Wouldn't it give a clearer view if we could vote on all of them at once?

It's almost like eShop games are being treated as inferior....in my opinion some of the best 3DS games are download only.

Dizzard commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand On DeNA, Smart Device...:

I only recently got a Wii U so even if we did know more about NX I don't think I could bring myself to be excited about it.

As for this whole mobile issue, I'm a little wary about it but I don't think it'll be as bad or dramatic as some people are making it out to be.

Dizzard commented on eShop Games Added To The European Club Nintend...:

I might get the Mario Kart dlc pack. I have something like 4800 stars so if they add the second one too I'll be able to get both through Club Nintendo.

Alternatively I might get Golden Sun. Already played it but it might be nice to replay it.

Dizzard commented on Feature: Ten Upcoming Nindie eShop Games to Wa...:

Out of the confirmed games I'm looking forward to playing Octodad the most.

There are other indie games (said to be heading to Wii U) still in development that I'm more excited for than these though. (Earthlock, Dex, Children of Morta etc)

Dizzard commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

Also, I think more people need to improve their own judgement when it comes to what they choose to play. They shouldn't treat a score as gospel, in the end all these reviews are written by people with their own tastes and biases. They're not omnipotent gods who know what's right for you.

Dizzard commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

Honestly I think I'd rather scores were dropped. Too often I just scroll to the bottom and look at the score, to the point where I don't think the reviews are that useful anymore. I also appreciate how metacritic scores are messing with developers, I don't like the idea of that at all.

I think the score can make the actual review a waste of time. I don't read most of the reviews on this site. (unless I'm already interested in the game which defeats the purpose)

Granted these days I'm more likely to look at gameplay videos on youtube and use my own (generally accurate) judgement to decide what I play. Perhaps if you made video reviews with gameplay footage they would be more engaging to the community?

I think I'd prefer a Recommend/Avoid label system.

Dizzard commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D ...:

@BenAV

Did I occur to you that there will be plenty of people who never bought the original Majora's Mask? Especially considering it was such an oddball in the franchise. (Not to mention people too young to have played it)

If it does well it's not necessarily because people who played it before are buying it again.

Dizzard commented on Poll: Nintendo's Year of Adventure on Wii U an...:

Seems like a pointless poll to me. Didn't even need to click vote to know what the results were.

Xenoblade Chronicles X is easily the game I'm most looking forward to this year. I'm still interested in the Zelda games but lately I've been turned off them somewhat. Right now I'm more interested in Majora's Mask (over Zelda Wii U) as I never played it.

(Splatoon would be my second most anticipated game after X)

Dizzard commented on Video: Does Super Mario Galaxy 2 On Wii U Offe...:

I already bought Punch Out and Metroid Prime Trilogy (and The Last Story) in a clearance sale.....so what's coming up doesn't look too interesting to me right now.

I'd love them to start putting up gamecube vc games though, games like Eternal Darkness, Chibi Robo, Baiten Kaitos I'm dying to play that I missed the first time round.

Dizzard commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2015:

Personally I'm far more excited for Xenoblade Chronicles X than the next Zelda. Although it looks really interesting too, lately I've been losing interest in the Legend of Zelda series but this one being open world could inject some new life into it.

Really looking forward to Splatoon as well.

Dizzard commented on Nintendo Download: 1st January (Europe):

Nothing looks really interesting this week.

I don't really see the appeal of Treasure Tracker, although I'm not someone who gets motivated by puzzle games so I would probably get bored really quickly.

Dizzard commented on Game Boy Advance Shooter Pocky & Rocky With Be...:

I could have sworn it was Tom Nook when I saw the header picture first. I thought somebody had hacked a mystery dungeon game and put Animal Crossing characters in it.

Never heard of this game before, shooters aren't really my thing but we'll see.....

Dizzard commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U European Release D...:

Doesn't mean much to me since I don't have a Wii U just yet. (but I'll probably get one before the Mewtwo promotion)

I'll be getting Alpha Sapphire instead. Still great news for those getting Smash Wii U on day one!
