KeeperBvK commented on Nintendo Download: 28th May (North America):

@ThomasBW84 "This was the last in this RPG spin-off series to arrive on the Game Boy Advance, though it did then progress onto the DS."

This is wrong. ;) The entire series was on GBA. MMBN 5 and 6 thus were on GBA. MMBN 5 was the only one to appear on the DS and that one appeared on both GBA and DS. No "progressing" to DS at all.

Edit: I see. You already corrected that. :)
Edit 2: Oh, ChaosValentine was faster than me. :D



KeeperBvK commented on FullBlast is Bringing Some Shmup Action to the...:

Why this stupid, panned isometric view? Modern, amateur shooter developers apparently love this style, but it makes dodgingso much harder for no good reason. Reminds me of Nanostray, which isn't the biggest compliment I could make to a game.



KeeperBvK commented on Review: Nihilumbra (Wii U eShop):

You've got to be kidding me. Nihilumbra is nothing but a "me too" kind of game. It wants to be artistic, meaningful, philosophical, clever, but ends being just an utterly mediocre platformer with "been there, done that" kinds of mechanics and generic puzzles. the story also beings promisingly, but it simply goes nowhere. It repeats itself over and over and over.
It's not a bad game, but the very definition of a mediocre game worth 5 or at maximum 6 out of 10. Giving it a 9 undermines your entire rating system and devalues your scores.



KeeperBvK commented on Super Metroid Was Planned As An Extra In Metro...:

"this solo effort from a skilled member of the Texas-based studio had utilised a third-party emulator"

How "skilled" can he be if he resorted to using an already available emulator programmed by someone else entirely? Sounds more like a lazy attempt that was rightfully shut down.



KeeperBvK commented on Ronimo Games Explains Pricing for Swords & Sol...:

@GLA Price reductions "screwed you over"? Wow, what a terrible way of thinking. You bought a game at a price you thought reasonable, you had fun with it and then others get it for less...and that somehow magically diminishes your fun with the game you bought for a price that was reasonable to you?
Screw that.



KeeperBvK commented on Nintendo Ditches Plans To Create New Hardware ...:

The real reason why they won't release the WiiU there is even simpler: People in China aren't interested in gaming consoles. Years ago you would at least see some people on the subways using their PSPs (mostly as book readers, though) and 25 years ago the Famicom was moderately successful, but those times are LONG gone. For at least 7 years now gaming is only done on PC and smartphones in China. The only places in China you will even find consoles for sale, only Western tourists or Westerners living there go there to buy something.
If Nintendo'd release the WiiU in China, nobody would give a damn about it.



KeeperBvK commented on Elliot Quest Patch Fixes Bugs and Graveyard Gl...:

How I love this kind of stuff: Nintendo fans always keep lamenting how games on other platforms are getting patched instead of being flawless out of the gate, yet when a game on a Nintendo platform needs grave bugs to be patched, it suddenly shows how much the developer cares.



KeeperBvK commented on The Legend of Zeldo: Lonk's Awakening is an iO...:

"In this comments section: people who don't understand how copyright, trademarks or court proceedings work."

Well, Mr. Know-it-all, most people in this very comment section actually said the same thing as you did or at least shared the sentiment. Actually aside from the news writer there doesn't seem to be ANYBODY here who thinks it should or could be taken down.



KeeperBvK commented on Gallery: Feast Your Eyes On FullBlast, An Old ...:

"A vertically-scrolling shooter with 3D visuals and a heavy metal soundtrack, FullBlast calls to mind the likes of Raiden, Battle Garegga and DoDonPachi."

Really? None of those games has 3D visuals and from the trailer this game looks nothing like either of those three games. It reminds me more of Nanostray for example.
Whenever a shmup appears, people will compare it to just ANY other game of the same genre. Why is that? People would never compare a 2D platformer to Mario, Sonic and Bonk at the same time, but here we are, comparing a badly-looking shmup to Raiden, Battle Garegga and DoDonPachi. Also neither of these three games is even comparable to any of the other two, let alone to this "Fullblast" thing.



KeeperBvK commented on Review: DOOORS (3DS eShop):

@Supermak99 And 100 Floors rips off dozens of earlier Room Escape games that had already been around since the early 2000s.
It's a whole genre. I'd hardly say any of those rip off another game more so than others do.



KeeperBvK commented on Review: Sky Kid (Wii U eShop / NES):

@Sean_Aaron Because they allow us to immediately see how different opinions can be? Yeah, definitely "crap"...
These different scores merely summarize and represent the existence of differing opinions. What's crap about that, exactly?



KeeperBvK commented on Review: Titan Attacks (3DS eShop):

"It's a tougher challenge, and arguably trumps even the mighty Space Invaders. Ooh, controversial…"

Would somebody really call that controversial? Would somebody honestly argue that the original Space Invaders'd be better than Galaga? I think it's a pretty universally accepted view to call Galaga a major improvement over SI in every single way.



KeeperBvK commented on Mappy-Land:

So, this is a sequel to Mappy? I hope it's better than Namco's other old "Land"-sequel, being the horrible Pac-Land.



KeeperBvK commented on Review: Mega Man Battle Network 2 (Wii U eShop...:

@abbyhitter Yeah, if you're only going to play through the story in as little time as possible. But half the fun is exploring all the areas, finding power-ups, doing side-quests and collecting chips. Doing that in all the games can EASILY amount to a couple hundreds of hours.
