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

@Fandabidozi That's a little crazy to me, but that's how things are in the gaming world sometimes. Like, for me, I wouldn't have bought a Wii U without the promise of a new mainline Zelda game for it that's going to be open world. While there are some games for Wii U that others could call a must have, that's pretty much all I'm interested in along with DK Tropical Freeze. I'm sure someone would find that opinion on that system's library as weird as I find it weird to only get a 3DS for pokemon.

dronesplitter commented on Video: What If Super Metroid Was A 3D Classic?:

What's up with the spin jumping to attack Mother Brain? You have a diagonal aim, use that, lol.

The 3D in this was only minor, the real thing would be much nicer. I noticed there wasn't any depth to how the background layer looks when walking in Crateria (they would make that look pushed back if they ever do this). Also, something felt weird about the way the door was supposed to look when fighting Ridley, but I could have looked at it wrong since I was doing the eye method on my PC.

dronesplitter commented on Review: Gunman Clive 2 (3DS eShop):

I guess if there was one thing that disappointed me, it was that this game didn't try new stuff with Clive's gun. No new powerups? Heck, I barely felt that the gun powerups, with the same types as before, factored in to the gameplay as much as I remember it from the first game.

dronesplitter commented on Review: Xeodrifter (3DS eShop):

I bought this and completed it today. I had a lot of fun but boy was it shorter than I thought it would be. I was hoping for some kind of final planet to unlock to extend the game more (maybe make extreme use of your abilities in this world, like the ghost levels in Mutant Mudds) but it was over in less than three hours. It's a short but sweet experience and I'm glad I waited for the sale.

dronesplitter commented on Review: Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. (3DS):

I'll only state that this new IP isn't the kind of game I play so that's why I probably won't be buying it. I reject the idea that no new IP will happen if people don't buy this, rather they might choose a different genre next time, which would be good if you're like me and do not typically enjoy turn-based strategy. This selling well will likely mean a sequel in the same genre so...

Even those games you mentioned don't technically force you, you just have to launch the game without the wifi switch on, I believe. I haven't updated SSB since after the first update since I was tired of my replays not being compatible. I sacrifice the online gameplay, of course.

dronesplitter commented on Renegade Kid Reveals a Snippet of Information ...:

As pointed out in the Nintendo Life review, Bomb Monkey really needs better high score tracking when you play it. It's not bad, though, and I bought it on sale quite some time back along with ATV and Mutant Mudds. I will probably buy Xeodrifter next.

dronesplitter commented on Rumour: A Planned 2.5D Metroid Title For 3DS G...:

Something is making me reject that it was because of Other M that this was cancelled, but probably more to do with what was presented just not looking promising. In any case, there's no way Nintendo will let much more time pass before we see another Metroid title announced.

dronesplitter commented on Xenoblade Chronicles 3D Launches Exclusively O...:

To be fair, it always looks worse when you look at 3DS previews on PC. It will look a lot better on the system, but in the case of Xenoblade I think we all know the Wii version is what you should be playing if you want nice visuals and a big screen to really take in the open world this title has going for it.

I played this through for the first time. Liked it so much I immediately did another run to get the good ending. Really great game, I hope there's a sequel in the works!

dronesplitter commented on Review: Puzzler World 2013 (3DS):

@pup2bill I just bought this and I noticed that after you finish a puzzle and the bonus puzzle that goes with it, it will give you a free spin for tokens. If you go back and do the bonus puzzle over again, you can get another free spin except it always seems to give you three cherries if you do that (but it's still 5 free hint tokens every time and you can keep doing it). So, find a simple and fast bonus puzzle anywhere in the list and you can generate 5 tokens at a time so you'll always have tokens.

dronesplitter commented on Moon Chronicles Developer Seeking Interest for...:

I really ended up loving Mutant Mudds, and I really appreciated the extra content that was patched in for FREE. That was truly above what most devs will do for their fans, so you have a fairly loyal supporter in me, Jools. That said, I have to echo the feeling that the Cult County project didn't go over well. Why was there a sudden shift to cancel the 3DS version when that seemed to be why there was interest in the game to begin with? That I had a hard time with, but I look forward to checking out your new stuff like Xeodrifter when it comes out :)

dronesplitter commented on Review: Ultimate NES Remix (3DS):

Sad, I would have bought this for sure had they not tried to mess with the content. Cutting out the super luigi game and replacing it with a rom with frameskip set on max? I think I can replicate that without dipping into my wallet.

dronesplitter commented on Review: Woah Dave! (3DS eShop):

I might get this as it looks really fun but I can wait for a sale on it. $5 might be chump change but it adds up over time and might mean I can't splurge on something else soon.

dronesplitter commented on Video: How Much Faster Is The New Nintendo 3DS?:

I'm seriously baffled by how long it took for the icon on the top screen for Smash 3DS to show on the regular 3DS XL. Watching that, I can't help but think "there's no way it takes that long on my XL...right?" I'm thinking about turning mine on and timing it with the video to be sure. That seems like forever, lol.

Okay, just booted my cartridge at the same time as the video and it matched almost exactly, ugh. I think mine showed the icon just a bit faster, but not by much. It's just so painful to watch next to a New 3DS loading it :(

dronesplitter commented on Super Smash Bros. on 3DS Lacks Circle Pad Pro ...:

Well, it's just a matter of them working it in from the beginning. CPP support was added in the form of a left handed play mode for Kid Icarus and that game was able to incorporate near the very end of its development. Smash 3DS doesn't use it at all and yet the peripheral was obviously there for them to incorporate from the start. But I'm sure pushing New 3DS was also part of the agenda early on as well.

@WaLzgi But I'm actually saying we could have had Smash 3DS and CPP support had they simply tried to engineer the game that way and not release new hardware with better specs and a second stick (New 3DS). That makes sense to me. Upgrading the system specs in the middle of your current gen does not make sense to me. I, of course, am happy they didn't make Smash 3DS exclusive to the new hardware. That would have been the worst case scenario (and I bet had they been dumb enough to do it, they would have gone with the PR spin that the old 3DS simply couldn't run it like they are saying with Xenoblade 3DS). Instead we get a game that will run and play better on that new hardware but is still functional on the old hardware.

Bad decisions from Nintendo are fair game to point out, even if they aren't the end of the world. It's good for Nintendo to hear some honest feedback that they are screwing up, but they will only really learn if the New 3DS sales are bad. Too late to help the games it taints before then, sadly. I hope a New Wii U isn't on their mind.

dronesplitter commented on Super Smash Bros. on 3DS Lacks Circle Pad Pro ...:

So you're happy that new games won't run properly on the old tech even though technically they might play on it, but in a way that sacrifices? I would like the company to please stick by the tech they have for at least a full gen. DSi had a processor upgrade but it wasn't used to improve any major releases. DSi was also a system I never bought because, again, it didn't make sense to me that they were making it. GBA library on a DS Lite was far more important than what came out on the DSishop.
