ekreig commented on Talking Point: Wii U Gamers Have Been Treated ...:

I don't have a Wii U myself, but I think people are spot-on when they say it's best used as a "companion console" to PS4/XB1 or a gaming PC. Not every single thing needs to be on every single console, convenient though it may be.



ekreig commented on Review: G.G Series RUN & STRIKE (DSiWare):

I wonder if they would consider releasing the series in multi-game bundles on the 3DS eShop? Given the laughably tiny file size of DSiWare, I'm sure it's technically feasible.



ekreig commented on First Impressions: Getting Cosy With Animal Cr...:

I'm actually really looking forward to this. Animal Crossing is fun, but the aimless nature of it can sometimes make it hard for me to feel motivated enough to keep playing it,. Naturally, a game with a more clearly defined task suits me just fine.



ekreig commented on Splatoon Splats Top 10 NPD Position in June as...:

It's too bad Splatoon is the only Nintendo exclusive still on there, but that's to be expected when the competition consists entirely of multiplats. It managed to outrank Minecraft, which is pretty awesome.



ekreig commented on Interview: Senran Kagura Producer Kenichirō T...:

I can respect this guy. I don't consider him any worse than TV/Movie producers that think there needs to be nudity and sex scenes in everything or advertisers that use scantily-clad models to sell their product. At least he seems open and honest about his...interests.



ekreig commented on Review: Star Fox Command (Wii U eShop / DS):

Yeah, this is the only Nintendo game I've played where I would die solely because of the controls. Even SM64DS wasn't this bad. Combine that with the furry fanfic storyline and you have a thoroughly awkward game!



ekreig commented on Nintendo President Satoru Iwata Passes Away Ag...:

Terrible, terrible loss. I don't know much about Iwata as a person, but I do understand he had known about what would cause his death for a while and still went on with his duties at Nintendo. I will always admire that. RIP



ekreig commented on Review: Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (Wii U eS...:

@Bass_X0 In that case, you should simply read both reviews and decide for yourself if it's something you would like. If a game gets a 5 there's still a chance you will still like it, and likewise if it gets an 8 there's a chance you won't like it. Personally, I think it does nothing but good to have different viewpoints available to read.



ekreig commented on Review: Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time (Wii U...:

Easily the worst in the series. Easily. The babies ultimately feel like a tacked-on approach to utilizing the DS's features (it's like Superstar Saga...but with TWO MORE BUTTONZ!), the time travel-themed world was a neat idea but too linear and constrictive compared to Superstar Saga in practice, there's a generally uncreative vibe about it; most of the Bros. Attacks are just variations of the Fire Flower or "everyone keep jumping on this guy!" and the NPCs aren't that memorable.

The game had a lot of potential, but they just didn't take it far enough. It's a perfectly decent action RPG/Zeldalike game, but a crummy excuse for a Mario RPG. I consider Bowser's Inside Story to be an apology of sorts for it because it fixed nearly everything that was wrong. Let's hope that lands on VC too.



ekreig commented on Rumour: Nintendo Isn't Bringing Devil's Third ...:

At the very least, it makes the game's omission from E3 make sense. But still...yeesh...a gritty shooter game both made in Japan AND not being released in America? I tell ya, it's a confusing time to be a gamer.



ekreig commented on Nintendo Download: 9th July (North America):

I'm not sure how I feel about Atlus's strategy of charging a higher than usual price for 3DS games and putting them on sale all the time. On one hand, it feels like punishing loyal fans who buy them at full price. On the other, their games are so good I tend to get more out of them then the average 60 dollar game...



ekreig commented on Review: Don't Crash (Wii U eShop):

Guys...I feel the need to remind you that there are several different reviewers here, and each have their own opinions. Consistency is nice, sure, but it's unrealistic to hold them all to the same standard for things like scoring.



ekreig commented on Sega Sorry That It "Betrayed" Fans, Hopes To W...:

I'm not even sure what they should be doing with Sonic anymore. They could stick with the fast 2D/3D style of Colors/Generations that went over pretty well, but there's only so much you can do with that before it gets stale. Sonic The Hedgehog 4 already proved that they don't know how to successfully "return to roots" like Mega Man and Rayman did.
