Geonjaha commented on Review: Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon (3DS):

@vincentgoodwin - I agree, but with series like this that stay very consistent between the games, I think its more important to say how it compares, otherwise this site will just have several reviews all stating what Pokemon Mystery Dungeon is about, instead of the differences between what each is offering.



Geonjaha commented on Review: Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon (3DS):

These kind of games really need to be compared with other games in the series. How does every aspect of it compare to Explorers of Sky, the best in the series? Is it more tedious than that one, or is this the first in the series that the reviewer has played?



Geonjaha commented on Editorial: It's Not Fun to Criticise Nintendo ...:

"Tom Whitehead assures you he's not on a maniacal quest to destroy Nintendo"

It's a pretty sad fact that he feels he has to. Let the fanboys be angry. I think the reasonable people want an honest perspective; not one that tries to justify every mistake Nintendo makes.



Geonjaha commented on Amazon Lists Pokémon Red, Yellow And Blue At ...:

I was really excited about Pokemon finally coming to the Virtual Console, but $10? Virtual Console games are already overpriced, I just think Pokemon would have been worth the high cost, but then they make it even higher. Probably going to pass on this now.



Geonjaha commented on Pokémon Red, Blue & Yellow Are Coming To The ...:

@iphys - Yeah well we already know that Nintendo is lazy with the Virtual Console. They could add the GBC colour palettes to GB games, but they don't do that because emulating the features of their own 20 year old hardware is too hard. They could also release GBA games on the service but don't because they wan't them to do better on the Wii U, and so make up excuses about not having save states making it not worth it.



Geonjaha commented on Feature: How Mario Kart Brought Two Soul Mates...:

Moral of the Story: For most people in this situation, Nintendo's archaic chat and friending policies mean they'll never find their soul-mate. I hope you're proud of yourselves Nintendo, breaking up relationships like that!



Geonjaha commented on This Is How Nintendo's First Smartphone Game M...:

So first of all, it's limited only to friends, so it's very isolated and kid-friendly, like many of Nintendo's super OTT safety based online experiences.

Then, it's only about asking questions and getting answers with friends. What? Surely its just inferior to a messaging platform then? I think Nintendo's going to quickly realize that its extremely limited approach won't stand up on an established platform. People don't care about Mii's enough to sacrifice functionality, unless they're hardcore fans, in which case they'll buy anything you put out.

EDIT: Just realised that the app asks the questions. If it's anything like Streetpass, we can probably expect deep questions including "Do you like cats or dogs?".



Geonjaha commented on Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Originally D...:

The fact that this actually comes as a surprise to anyone is a bit of a laugh. Triforce Heroes was obviously set up to be a multiplayer game, designed around multiplayer. They added in the single player after all the nagging they probably got from people with no friends who feel the need to be able to play every Zelda game.

TIP: If you don't have anyone to play with, skip the game and look for something else to play. Not everyone has to appeal to everyone, even if it is a franchise you enjoy.



Geonjaha commented on Yes, Fatal Frame's Lingerie Outfits Have Been ...:

"That's right - we've been cruelly denied the chance to gaze at a fictional lady in her underpinnings. Gnash those teeth and grab those pitchforks."

I mean, say what you want, but It's just kind of pathetic really that Western boards think they have to censor this kind of stuff in M-rated games.



Geonjaha commented on 3DS System Update 10.1.0-27 Available Now, Hac...:

@Galenmereth - "There are region locking concerns that aren't just about greed; what about the money aspect?"

The irony of your comment...Regardless, the important thing here is that region locking holds no advantages to the consumer. Not having region locking on a console might come with minor inconveniences (and for a large company, an inconvenience is all it is), but every other gaming company is willing to take that little hit for the sake of their consumers. Nintendo isn't. That doesn't quite inspire me to support their products. Up until the 3DS they didn't even need region locking, so pretending Nintendo is some special case is just pulling the wool over your own eyes.



Geonjaha commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer...:

Super Mario World, of course. Mario 64 comes close, but it always ages so badly. SMW doesn't have this problem. SMB3 is good, but anyone who thinks that the NES game can compete with the superior SNES game is deluded. :3



Geonjaha commented on Review: SENRAN KAGURA 2: Deep Crimson (3DS):

@AlexOlney - Haha. You realise if you don't say this game is a 9/10 the people who bought it might have to admit they came for the sex appeal, not the (mediocre) gameplay.

cough I mean, yeah. Best fighting game ever. I'm sure everyone plays it for the articles...

@abbyhitter @Iggly - The two reviews were written by two different people, with different opinions.



Geonjaha commented on Review: I Love my Cats (3DS eShop):

I'm surprised these people bother trying to compete with Nintendogs. Love it or hate it, it's simply the top of its niche genre. Apparently the people who buy these titles are either uninformed or really just desperate for more.



Geonjaha commented on Hands On: Here's What The 3DS Version Of ​Te...:

It's not a game I would really compare to Minecraft much. They are very different, and each have their own strengths/flaws. Since both are amazing I would always recommend that people try out both.

With that said, I do love Terraria, and I'm currently playing through the 1.3 patch on PC. I can't honestly see any reason to really get the 3DS or Wii U versions at this point. I was thinking the 3DS one for some portability, but if it ends up being considerably inferior to the PC version I'd probably not be able to look past that while playing it.

@Spectra_Twilight - Unfortunately, policies like that ensure people skip Nintendo consoles for being 'kiddy'. Preventing a game from having online capabilities at all because some kind of age system can't be implemented? It's pathetic, and I hate to see it holding back good games on the platform.



Geonjaha commented on Dragon Quest XI Is Coming To The Nintendo 3DS ...:

I'll add it to the list.

Games I'd buy if Square Enix got their act together (and localised them):

  • Dragon Quest VII (3DS)
  • Dragon Quest VIII (3DS)
  • Dragon Quest Monsters: Terry's Wonderland (3DS)
  • Dragon Quest Monsters: Cobi/Tara's Adventure (3DS)
  • Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 (3DS)
  • Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime 2 (3DS)
  • Theatrhythm Dragon Quest
  • Dragon Quest XI

It's looking more impressive every day



Geonjaha commented on Review: LEGO Jurassic World (3DS):

It's a big shame, especially because we've seen the potential LEGO actually has with its games through LEGO Worlds (Which is very promising despite only being in Early Access).



Geonjaha commented on Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 3 Announced for 3D...:

I'll add it to the list of good games that we won't be getting from Dragon Quest.

If anyone is interested; the Dragon Quest Monsters spinoff is based on the monster recruitment and battling from Dragon Quest V (Which came about before the first Pokemon game in case you're shouting "Pokemon ripoff!").

The Joker games (1 and 2) came out here for the DS (at least the standard versions did), and I'd recommend buying the second one over the first, as it basically improves upon it in every way.
