ennan commented on Sonic The Hedgehog Dashing Onto Platforms In 2013:

I'd love a new 2D sonic with the graphics of generations with no voice acting and an awesome storyline like the death egg trilogy. Sonic 3 and knuckles told an epic story with no superfluous characters, crappy voice acting or unnecessary cut scenes.

ennan commented on Mario Clone Super Maria Land Jumps Onto Android:

Was curious so I tried it - figured it was free so it's not a big deal. It sucks. Uninspired level design, meh music and gut rotting controls. Seriously I may have to have portions of my intestines removed.

ennan commented on Talking Point: What Do You Think of 3DS XL?:

Wasn't that bothered unitl I tried one out. The larger screen is gorgeous and really makes the 3D stand out. Also a lot more comfortable to hold. Condidering getting one now.

ennan commented on Michael Pachter Doubts 3DS XL's Powers of Revival:

I have the normal 3DS and wasn't interested in the XL but I had a go of one today and it's fairly compelling - the screen is gorgeous - the 3D effect has a lot more impact. The unit is also far more comfortable to hold. I'm now tempted to pick one up.

ennan commented on Poll: Which Colour Wii U Would You Prefer?:

Black because it'll really make me feel like Batman...

Seriously though I prefer the black and for the first time ever I might not get a Nintendo console on launch day. Maybe I'm getting old but must-have-regardless-of-colour vibe has gone.

ennan commented on ZombiU Is Really a Blast from the Past:

Yeah - I have this in a cupboard somewhere. Looking forward to seeing actual gameplay of the new one though. Hope it doesn't disappoint. Really like the idea of the death mechanic...

ennan commented on Feature: The Life and Times of SEGA's Game Gear:

Hardware issues is right... My friends game gear would reset if you moved it slightly and mine would invert the colours for no apparent reason. Still loved the bulky monster though. Had an adaper that let me play master system games on it too which was awesome.

ennan commented on Rumour: Two Zelda Titles in Development:

Nice idea - the oracle games were awesome but that picture looks fake and the names sound pretty gash (though they could be placeholders/code names)

I would welcome a dual release though - especially if the games were linked somehow like the oracles.

ennan commented on Review: Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island ...:

Although the graphics of the snes version are better (for example the "touch fuzzy get dizzy" effect) I really appreciate having a portable version of one of my favourite games ever. It was the first ambassador game I chose to play and the first one I completed. I've loved this game for years. It's pretty much perfect.

ennan commented on Wii U Panorama View Demo is Awesome:

Impressive. With the Wii U Nintendo seem to be pulling a "HAGADOOSH GAME FAN! KICK TO THE FACE TO WAKEN YOU UP! NOW PAY ATTENTION!" which is good... I love a good hagadoosh!

As for the Zelda demo - I'm hoping that just like the spaceworld demo vs twilight princess that in a few years when the actual Zelda is released that it looks even better than this demo! Hagadoosh!

ennan commented on Wii Balance Board Enters Record Books:

The balance board is one thing that never appealed to me. Maybe it's cuz of my quite frankly amazingly sleek, Ninja like frame or maybe it's cuz when I'm at home I just want to be lazy and sit on my lovely, perfectly formed ass and eat chips!

:D

ennan commented on Rumour: Wii U Heading for E3 Face-Off with PS4...:

Oh damn it. More pennies! Still don't have all the games I want from last year! With the Wii U coming, more 3ds games on the horizon and Nikon announcing the D4 I just don't know how I'm going to keep up!

Although I doubt we'd see these new consoles this year if they did appear my choice would be the Wii U first then maybe an xbox.

ennan commented on Turn Your Retro Cartridges Into ROMS, Legally:

@Geonjaha I really don't. But I do resent any implication that I'm somehow harming Nintendo. I've spent so much money on Nintendo products - my games collection is massive - literally hundreds of games.. I own every console (with multiple versions of games boys, game boy advances and DS's - I even own the virtual boy) and god knows how many gimmicky accessories, controllers, memory cards, bongos. Having a few games on my phone may make make a pirate technically but Nintendo didn't lose out on anything. If they offered the games on android I'd buy them but they don't and I've never once pirated a game I don't already own.

The industry is in a difficult place right now with apple and android stealing a lot of the handheld space. Let's not forget There's a recession on. I'll happily pay for content from Nintendo and other parties because without that support the industry will suffer.

ennan commented on Turn Your Retro Cartridges Into ROMS, Legally:

@ theblackdragon quite frankly the legality doesn't concern me. Morally speaking I'm comfortable - I've bought these games (often multiple times like Zelda, mario bros etc) so having one extra handy copy on my phone doesn't make me a monster.
Having one device that plays all my atari, nes, snes, n64, game boy, game boy advance, master system, game gear and megadrive games which I have will me at all times is very handy. I still tend to buy things from VC though as the controls are better.

ennan commented on Turn Your Retro Cartridges Into ROMS, Legally:

Interesting device but I've already got my games backed up (legally or not I'm not sure) to my HTC desire Z (the whole reason I got the phone was because it has hardware keys that can be mapped).

Never download games I don't already own though a.nd I have an afwul lot on the VC as well. I don't mind paying for games I just like to have convenience

ennan commented on Skyward Sword Save File Fix Wii Channel Out Now:

Played through the game and didn't encounter the bug. Read about it afterwards and it's a very unlikely set of circumstances which lead to it. Good on Nintendo for providing a fix though. Imagine it would be gut wrenching to encounter it since it's so near the end of the game.

ennan commented on 3DS to Hit 4 Million Sold in Japan Sooner Than...:

Excellent news. Knew sales would pick up once the games started coming. The system updates are also welcome. At the moment there's too many good games and I' struggling to afford them all especially given all the other jazz I want...

ennan commented on Nintendo Takes Home Four Awards at Spike VGAs:

@Aviator - oh well. Nintendo should just give up then. No point in all this development rubbish if other games are winning awards too, right?

Really Nintendo - why you bothering? I mean I love Skyward Sword but if Portal 2, Batman etc all won some stuff then clearly I must be an idiot...

ennan commented on Review: Sonic Generations (3DS):

Was interested in this title for a while... But adding a homing attack to classic sonic kind of ruins it for me. I love the megadrive games but don't much like the modern ones. Keep it simple sega.

ennan commented on Samus Shoots 3DS VC in North America This Week:

@James - description is wrong. No space pirates in this game. They are recovering from having their ass handed to them in Metroid and the Prime series. This game takes place on the metroid homeworld - the mission is to wipe them out. Not one space pirate in the whole game. This was my first gameboy game and I know it inside out.

ennan commented on PETA - Relax Mario Fans, It Was All a Joke:

Sounds like someone at peta realised what a massive balls up they had made and decided to back pedal. Let's face it - this was a dumb move on their part - Nintendo did not deserve those stupid comments or to be the butt of a ill concieved and idiotic joke designed to grab attention. All they managed was to make themselves look stupid. Backfire of the century.
