foxtwin commented on Warren Spector Proud That Epic Mickey 'Polaris...:

I can deal with bad camera problems--I made it through Mario 64. What I had the most trouble with in Epic Mickey (1) was combat. Paint and Thinner were fine for environmental puzzles, but were not suited for battling hoards of brooms. If they fix that in the sequel, I'll get it.



foxtwin commented on Angry Birds Dev Calls Nintendo Games "$49 Piec...:

Agree with you all.

I'm not sure Mr. Vesterbacka fully understands what a video game is. I like Angry Birds. But if his comments indicate what he thinks of video games, then Angry Birds is more of a diversion and an activity. Zelda: THAT'S a video game--with it, is an entire world of interactive experience, something on which he has barely touched the surface.



foxtwin commented on Features: Games That Should Already Be on Virt...:

There are some decent Turbografx games still missing: namely, Legendary Ax, a superb hack-n-slash title. Keith Courage was a pack-in game at one time. It is not a great game, but still holds nostalgic value for those who picked up a TG16.

More Commodore 64 games? Will they ever bring MSX games (original Metal Gear, for example)? Heck why couldn't we get Atari systems on there?



foxtwin commented on Might The Next Zelda Sense Your Vitality?:

Could be interesting to see how you can actually use the sensor. Is it just reactionary? It changes things based on your pulse? Or do you actually control something by calming yourself?

What if a Zelda enemy senses fear--your pulse goes up and so it can find you/attack you. But if you stay calm, you may avoid it entirely.



foxtwin commented on Review: Blaster Master: Overdrive (WiiWare):

If you like/have the original, yes, there IS enough reason to get this. While I agree with the review, I do have a couple complaints.

One is that save/check points are few and far between.

You can hold a diagonal shot without moving the vehicle or the man if you hold B--but to me that his cumbersome and wish they had Classic Controller support and have the diagonal shots control like Super Metroid.

The graphics are cool, but there's not enough variety within the level like the original had.

Finally, I do not think the music is as good as it could have been. I enjoy hearing the old tunes remixed here, but I think the choice of sounds wasn't that great--the original soundtrack is better.

In the end, it's still a great thing that this game exists and that it is still fun to play. And by the way, it's only $10!
