khululy commented on German Ratings Board Leaks Another World: 20th...:

@Falco You are right, this game does look better in it's original form without that weird pink shade over everything. Felt like Deus EX: Pony revolution.

but seriously it's a great game and people should really appreciate the work that went into it. Gamers these days take so many things for granted...



khululy commented on Feature: The Castlevania That Konami Doesn't W...:

This game is horrible I recall it playing in the past
LoS is not a horrible game the first one just has some interesting design choices even so people call it a "God of war clone" (wich is a statement I hate because God of War is just a succesful Devil may cry clone.) And given entire LoS is from the perspective of Zobek the fixed camera makes somewhat sense as he is following Gabriel. I played the 3DS version while it cannot hold a breakable candle to Iga's entries it's not that godawfull as this stiff piece of pixelated poo.
That put aside LoS2 does seem like a big underwhelming mess due to the studios butchering the cool aspects of being dracula. kinda reminds me of Darksiders 2. while Darksiders was a solid game but build upon tried and true formulas it's prequel felt like arrand boy for divinity simulator.

Maybe double helix should take a swing at the new castlevania :P



khululy commented on How One Man Is Giving Sonic Fans The Game They...:

@mjc0961 That's what i like about the 3D sonic, the senseless speed but i also love good platforming that made sonic generations so much fun for me plus it looks amazing. (Yes the forced challenges are a forced way to get us to play them and it's cheap but so was sonic generations on steam)

The fan game looks nice but some parts have hard to spot platforms and weird spikes in that cave thing are weird.



khululy commented on Industry Veteran Peter Molyneux Warns The Indi...:

@Plutonian Who wants to drink American beer anyway!

"Indie" games will always be there but the indie hype will fade and maybe big publishers will realize people like smaller experience with original ideas better than caucasian brawnybrodudes blowing up cities in the back ground and fighting monsters the size of skycrapers cuz they can render all that, yes, we get that!
Game are like cartoons the only limit there is is imagination. They are allowed to take liberties with physics, reality and all that is conventional and known.
But like with most industries where money is the ruler, the magic dies. I still love gaming as a whole but a lot of todays AAA big budget hype games leave the impression of a balloon on a granite surface. It's all like McDonalds food (or other fast food chains) It's tasty it's edible but lacks substance



khululy commented on Ninterview: TriForce Johnson - A Journey From ...:

@Action51 That's envy for ya.
I don't think the best games where made in the 80's & 90's I mean there was little to compare them with so most innovation or expanding on ideas was more noticable. I am certainly of the opion that the best games where not made " last gen" But some really good game where made none the less.
A lot of crap games flew under the radar back then because magazines didn't care or couldn't cover all at once.
There is a certain saturation but I personally think that is caused by a stale view of gaming as a whole. It is still seen as a time waster rather then a story telling medium suchs as music/novels/theatre.
But there is this trend going on it seems where games need to be for the masses.

I would like to see an opera game where all cutscenses are sang and all gameplay is rythm based kinda like bit trip games and the musical stages in rayman legends.
steps of his soapbox

As for TriForce it was a nice read I liked that bit of ghetto wisdom his dad gave him regarding his name.
I am not really a fan of competative play i mean i like winning but I sure as hell don't mind losing if i had fun playing. I think he has done a great job turning his hobby into his work. He's living the good life. And yes I wish i was in his position earning my pay with games but i couldn't handle the pressure of being in a competition :P



khululy commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

"While the games industry has come a long way since the male-dominated days of the '80s and '90s, it's still easy to forget that there are a lot of female gamers out there who could — and indeed will — be offended by such imagery," And they should suck it up and get on with their lives.

I am offended that some offended people want to destroy my option and freedom to play a game with big breasted women.

I get offended about war games with square jawed white dudes with some quasi military nonsense spouting to their token racial buddy. I think it's racist and it draws an image of men being brave heroic and altruistic saviours of the world while most of them are just egocentric testosterone loaded layabouts that eat red meat and watch sports (not(entirely) true, I know but it's just as silly an argument).

Should all games have pop music because lyrics about demons and the devil might offend christians in a game like Devil may Cry? Should we not have black npc's spawn in a GTA chicken diner because it might offend Jessy Jackson?
I think it's(the arguement) simply playing on peoples fears of doing the "right" thing like you should feel guilty enjoying the beauties of the female body.
The real problem is trying to be politically correct and last time I checked politics they where not correct.



khululy commented on Expect Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty To Cost Around ...:

@XCWarrior Judging from the screenshots it's a true remake as it used prerendered backgrounds and sprite animation in the original and from the screenshots it looks like it's now rendered in modern 3D graphics. but all the art animation script etc are there but still a lot of work needs to be done to make such a game and make it true to the original.
This is not a simple retexure job or just amping up the resolution from the original.



khululy commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

@Peach64 is metacritic the collective opinion of the world?

I've watched the anime based on these game series but while incredibly silly there is a lot of fun being made about it's presentation and it doesn't take itself as serious as the people who claim the game is harmful.
The game is only harmful for people who are unable to act and think like reasonable adults.
As for those who can, by all means do, or do not, enjoy some bouncy boob brawler bouts.



khululy commented on Ace Attorney Creator Wanted to End Series at O...:

@yoko19191 we were never promised half life 3, only half life 2, episode 3.

I'm not really a veteran of the Phoenix wright series as I only played the 2n game on DS when i found it in a bargain bin then went and bought miles edgeworth investigation wich was totally different but still a charming affair and i recently bought, loved and finished dual destinys



khululy commented on Review: Yoshi's New Island (3DS):

The original yoshi wasn't a ground breaking game gameplay wise, it had some transformations and a fun egg throwing mechanic but the best thing was the fact that it utterly pushed the SNES to it's limits hardware wise.
That fact alone left such an impact.
I am sure fun can be had with this game. and not every new release needs to innovate the series or genre.

offtopic: Now bring us MGS :Twin snakes to the 3DS with proper optimalization!



khululy commented on Nintendo Releases an Extended Gameplay Trailer...:

@Toodles That's the problem I have with most games, they lack anything to remember sure they look play and sound great but after a while... you forget it.
Everyone is playing it safe now(yes also M$ and Sony are.) and risks are not taken. It seems like games nowadays need to be for everyone and it makes them lose a bit of edge and personality.

the reason why they created this more real look, I think, is to make the 3D pop out better rather then looking like SNES 3Dremake. I think this game will look a lot better on an actual 3DS screen same was the case with link between worlds for me.

Edit: Yoshi's Island Redux would be a better title.



khululy commented on Review: Weapon Shop De Omasse (3DS eShop):

@PrincessSugoi so true as with most guild 01/02 titles it's more a focus experience then complex controls mechanics and like Attack of the friday monsters it's just the charm that makes it great to play.

I truely hope level 5 will bring us more of these little gems because I am surely enjoying them.



khululy commented on Interview: Takashi Tezuka on Bringing Yoshi's ...:

Seeying anything yoshi island always reminds me of that horrible day i popped in my SNES cart only to find my save game being bugged and and reset.
I was in the last world with a 100% completion so far (including all bonus levels at that point)

I don't really see a problem with the art style do people have some unrealistic nostalgia goggles on? I bet it al looks a lot better in motion on the 3DS not a day one purchase but I'll keep an eye out for it.



khululy commented on Dedicated Video Game Platforms To Remain Ninte...:

@GunstarHero234: I never said anything about violence used to win over consumers. I've got nothing agains violence in games but I am just tired of a lot of games that feature square jawed military goon type heroes.
I miss characters like Abe or something like lost vikings and even Stubs the zombie come to mind. Why does every protaganist have to be a beefed up white roidmonkey?

And seriously, can someone explain me this "core gaming" thing because I've never understood this term.



khululy commented on Dedicated Video Game Platforms To Remain Ninte...:

@bizcuthammer: what is a "Core gamer"? but a misarable pile of !@#$.

I never liked the Playstation controllers and the Xbox had fuzzy graphics and a lack of a decent variety of exclusives as well and all the multi-platform games looked better on my PC anyway but the Wii had games such as DKC return, Sin and punishment 2, Demon blade Zack & Wiki and Cool version of Okami.
While I am currently not interested in buying a Wii U, mostly because my 3DS drains my gaming funds lately (blasted Eshop! :P)but DKC: TF kinda make me want to buy one in the near future.
The reason, I think, 3rd party drop the Wii U is because it's 'lack' of power does not enable for quick multiplatform releases and making small interesting creative games is not on the minds of Ubisoft, Activsion, EA and Sqeenix and the likes these days.
It's a sad state of affairs and I think the whole game industry needs to make a Uturn or barrel roll. but Nintendo is the first to notice this because of their early release. the other 2 had their big console release to hold of their troubles. but lately I am more and more dissapointed in AAA games with more shine then substance.
I rather play a solid game with "lesser" graphics then a shiny borefest that is not memorable at all.
In the future when systems like ps4 and xbone are old consoles, Their highly promoted features like the bro button and the fingerpad will feel more gimmicky then the offscreen play and the motion controll of the Wii will. They just feel "cool" because lot of people want to be online and share and communicate etc. but once the servers shut down and support is gone I can still rip out peoples hearts in Madworld or play my old Wiiu games ( if I have one by then) on the tv without having to claim it.

Nintendo is not without fault but Sony and Microsoft aren't nintendo's peers because the sales of a single "console generation". People are all to easily sucked into shareholder paranoia ( and by god these guys are full out bonkers I can assure you).
Now that the gap between graphical improvement is getting smaller and smaller people should focus on actual gameplay more and in my opinon nintendo always tried, not always succeeded, To bring something fresh to the table to give our gaming a new spin.
Yes they could take a few pointers from sony and microsoft or dabble in more advanced storytelling mechanics in their games(but then again look how people recieved Other M). But I could also argue that other developers could stop trying to fill every game with beefed up white dudes with huge guns (that are totally NOT fallic symbols) or annual reskins of the same game or have one core mechanic and apply it to all games you release.

I truely appreciate Nintendo's efforts toward the gaming industry sure they trip now and then but atleast they get up and try again.
The attention Nintendo gets for this little stumble is also a sign of how big they still are and, I assume, how many people still care.



khululy commented on Month Of Kong: What Donkey Kong Country Means ...:

@GunstarHero234 I think i'm missing the mark making my point. What I am saying is that your comments come across as if DKC returns is a bad game because it couldn't appeal to you wich is no problem at all but that fact doesn't make the game bad in itself or as you paint it to be.
and I never stated you "are mad" just that you sound so disgruntled to me. Again a personal experience that does not always coincide with that of another yet still remains untouched but that.



khululy commented on Month Of Kong: What Donkey Kong Country Means ...:

@GunstarHero234 Your comments sound so angry, go play some more donkey kong returns :)
The qualitiy of platforming in DKC returns is not better or worse then it is one the original SNES games (yes the wii controls are questionable but on the 3DS it controls like a charm.)
And while the current DKC titles are not as refreshing as the ones from the 90's it's platforming is still up to par with other modern (and old)platforming titles like Rayman or Mario.
I think your expectations conflicted with your experience and thus your opinion of the game is that it is a bad game but even if the game is not for you it's still a damn solid platformer.
The main reason, I think. dkc returns feels the way it does because it tried to bridge the gap between new and old. One can debate if they succeeded or not because there are always nitpicking people who are never satisfied regardless of what people try to do.
Zelda series is a great example of how people want new things but don't want change.



khululy commented on Month Of Kong: What Donkey Kong Country Means ...:

@GunstarHero234 I completely and wholeheartly disagree with everything you've said and will say about Donkey Kong country returns (I haven't played TF yet so can't judge but it looks delightful). That game is amazing and really faithfull to the original series.

The original Donkey Kong games truely felt like a new adventure back in the days I still have all 3 copies and play them now and then to experience them they way the should be, well minus the CRT TV.
My favorite is still the 2nd of the bunch but I love them all and then some,



khululy commented on Video: Experience The Acute Embarrassment Of O...:

@AugustusOxy : Ignore...boobs...??? HOW?
2 ecchi 4 me!
I really don't see the fuss about this game. Sure the anime girls look underage but no one goes to a beach and bans young girls from wearing bikinis (although some would) However you interpret this game is up to you. The game in itself is about busty anime babes fighting their asses off (or clothes of their asses) It's silly titlating fun it's not ment to offend or shock but just to make a game with busty ninja girls.
and if you don't like it? don't play it!



khululy commented on Month Of Kong: The Making Of Diddy Kong Racing:

@tom_q I know this is totally offtopic but I love your Terranigma pic, that game is also a great game of back then, well even more back than, then.

I never got the chance to play this game on N64 I was one of those unlucky kids who had a pc at that time with a 166 mhz cpu and tnt2 graphic card so i was playing on that :P



khululy commented on Bravely Default Producer Outlines a Continued ...:

I really love BD but the world could be a bit more of a whole it didn't gave me the same sense of greatness i had from the worlds i've seen in breath of fire 1 to 4 or Chrono trigger or Terranigma.
I really love the job system but by all means change the darn hunter costumes.
Dispite the shortcomings of a not so immersive(but greatly presented) world and some really grind heavy parts this game deserves it's sequel.



khululy commented on Shinji Mikami Prefers The Sega Version Of Alad...:

I used to play the 'Genesis' version on my pc back then it had better music depending on the quality of your audio card (gotta love midi music)
and it had

one of my favorite tunes from the entire game
The SNES version always felt stiff to me and less like an interactive version of the animated feature. It's still one of my favorite games to date right up there with the SNES version of The Lion king.



khululy commented on Nintendo Download: 20th February (Europe):

I shall wreak havoc upon the 8-bit styled streets of Retro City while I play this title for the first time ever. But I also still need to kill the End and save the world in bravely default...



khululy commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Direct Pointed to Anot...:

Poor Nintendo, they try so hard yet still seem to miss a few marks but I do have to agree that things look kind of grim for the WiiU as a commercial product.
I still firmly believe the quality of games is not determined by the hardware it runs on but it seems lot of companies consider it easier to make multi platform versions, while this do helps sales it rarely helps quality. I mean look at most products that the big companies that rejected the WiiU bring out it's mostly well build good looking white dude power fantasy fests. I do miss the 90's and early 2000's games they had a sense of experimental freshness. To me the whole gaming world is in a rut but people focus so much on nintendo because they are a goliath and a behemoth in this industry they still stand out while sony and MS make preset pc's that are obsolete on the release day Nintendo still makes gameing divices. The whole climate needs to change. Games are not merely products to leech consumers.
I'd sooner buy a Wii U then a PS4 or Xbone since I own a decent gaming rig and with all the x86 cpu's and ATI gpu's there will be lesser system exclusives for thoses systems from big companies like Capcom and I see even Konami getting back some pc support and BandaiNamco as well.
So if anything Sony and MS are more obsolete then Nintendo is atm as there is a constant focus on the Big N (albeit a bit negative) Wich encourages(or forces) the company to change while these others slack off thinking they can go another round of brown burly bromance battles. But in the end it's the gamers that creates sales not the games not 3rd party support. (more discounts will help sales Nintendo! People are suckers for 'XX% off' deals!)



khululy commented on Nintendo Confirms Plans To Acquire Up To Ten M...:

@ Guybrush20X6: there is nothing to understand here, it's a bloated facade to rake in money. Sure it looks all complex but wallstreet is run these days by programs and paranoid yuppies that get scared if they hear someone talking about that they might heard rumor that actually provide the possibility that there is a chance that the stock can go lower by 0.001% and they act like armageddon is upon is. It's a fools game and no should no longer be part of the modern world!



khululy commented on Preview: Japanese Gamers Get Their Free Super ...:

I got the NES version for this on my ambassador program which is obviously the better way for your nostalgia rush but it's free and you can't beat a free game even if it's a redundant port of an old classic.
Just see it as a little time capsule that shows off how amazing the GBC was cuz it could 'handle' an NES port!



khululy commented on Review: Castlevania II: Simon's Quest (3DS eSh...:

I find the 6 ( maybe a 7) more justified as this game is not as terrible as the night that is the night that is a terrible night to have a curse is.
But as for an entry title into the castlevania series...I would not reccomend this but give them the GBA/DS ones instead.
and it's definitly no Rondo of Blood or Super Castlevania IV.



khululy commented on Nintendo Was Dead To Us Very Quickly, States E...:

@XFsWorld: No crappy games from EA such horrible fate!!!
I haven't seen or played a worthy EA game in ages( since dragon age actually) even their efforts to make ths sci-fi snorefest of mass effect an adult title by taking the HBO approach and slap some pron in it failed :P
they are just scared their games look incredibly bland and mediocre compared to nintendo's efforts and even they can tend to stick to their guns a bit too follhardy when it comes to design but still they seem to try harder to make gaming enjoyable instead of another way to leech cash form wallets.



khululy commented on Iwata Accepts Responsibility For Poor Financia...:

@minotaurgamer, lol nintentroll.
3D on the 3DS? Miyamoto's idea -Thing is selling like hotcakes... very bad idea
Put someone that doesn't like zelda in charge of zelda? miyamoto's idea
Conectivity over internet? miyamoto's fault - Putting someone in charge of zelda games that doesn't like them can cause for innovation to transform zelda into a game he might like to play himself.
No 2D Mario for almost 20 years because he just didnt want to do it even if it was demand for? yup, miyamoto - Does a Geometrical dimension define Mario?
Waste money and time making pikmin 3, A GAME NOBODY BUYS AND GIVES A DAMN FOR, over other more important games? miyamoto-san of course. - Actually people wanted it but not the blood hungry bromasses.
the awful, awful N64, Gamecube and wii u controler design? miyamoto's. -Granted the wiimote could've been better but there was nothing wrong with the N64 it was a bit experimental and the gamecube has still the best face button layout any console has ever seen.
Give preference to 3D Mario over 2D Mario, making the former better even though it sell less and makin the former mediocrely even though is the one with highest demand for? Miyamoto. Again with the 2D get over it polygons have been a thing since the 80's man.
Making games drag in development because the guy doesnt want to give control to other people? yup he is the one to blame. That strategy never did Apple any harm...



khululy commented on Review: Disney Frozen: Olaf's Quest (3DS):

I saw Frozen and the movie is ok and yes comic relief chars can be very annoying but Olaf is ok he's no JarJar Binks or other hyper active monster that noises up the entire movie..
As for Disney movies being cliché, ofcourse they are they tell fairy tale type stories that need to appeal to a broad audience... it's like expecting MCdonalds to come up with something that's actually good food.
As for movie tie-in games... I miss the days of Lion King and Aladdin. (even Hercules and Tarzan where pretty good games.)



khululy commented on Review: Double Dragon (3DS eShop / NES):

@Obito_Tennyson Well all those you mentioned are good classic beat-em ups.
If you really want to see the true gems in the genre get your hands on either some arcade collection disks or a good arcade emulator such a mame and endulge yourself in Cps1 and Cps2 board Capcom games such as Dungeons and Dragons and Aliens vs. Predator or some of the old konami classics such as Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles 1 & 2 and X-men.
SNK has a few nice ones but they are more known for 1 on 1 fighters.

As for Double Dragon, this was one of the first games I played when I was about 5 so loads of nostalgia there. I still own it on the NES but hving it on the go always make me smile despite it being a somewhat stiff and clunky game with limited multiplayer. I mean it's way less fun as TMNT II: the arcade game. ( too bad about licences, cuz I would love to see that one hit the virtual console in nes or original arcade version)



khululy commented on Review: Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate (3DS):

@belmont And God of war should stop being a Devil May Cry clone. But I agree on the rest about the new take on Castlevania. But I understand they where looking for not another metroidvenia I guess and Patrick Steward makes up for a lot :P

@RedFireTiger I really liked Mirror of fate despite it being all over the place and I think it, and this Batman game, show there is a place for games with a less vibrant color palette and cheerfull storylines on the 3DS.

I still think I might enjoy this game more then to give it a 5 but that is up to the bargain bin to decide when that time comes.



khululy commented on Review: 3D Ecco The Dolphin (3DS eShop):

Ecco the Dolphin is a hard game. Not all people like hard games.
But that doesn't mean the game is bad. I personally like it's sequel a lot more it has those snazzy travel stages and looks a bit more polished then the first. I also prefer it's soundtrack over the first.



khululy commented on Review: 3D Streets of Rage (3DS eShop):

I was really more impressed by the use of 3D in Streets of rage then I was with sonic or Shinobi III. While both awesome games, I really love how they added depth to the street itself even little things like stairs and pillars are popping out in the usually flat background, And the intro just ... oozes late 80's early 90's vibe with the music and scrolling cityscape while you read about the city being taken over by evil gangs (thank you The warriors for this endless stream of gangwar games.).



khululy commented on Funky Kong's Return Confirmed for Donkey Kong ...:

Funky would probably run a shop and/or transport around the Islands as he is too laid back to be bothered with traipsing about for a few bananas and what not.
I would love to see this game ported to the 3DS. As much I would like a wii U i'm more prone to pick up my handheld then start up a console and I adored DKC returns 3D. But I also wouldn't mind having a 3DS exclusive DK platformer for us handheld gamers,



khululy commented on Nintendo Download: 19th December (North America):

I just downloaded the 3D classics and I can say I am impressed with how well they are done once again. I was kinda worried how Streets of rage was going to turn out but it's wonderfull. M2 did an Amazing job on these games and I am hoping part 2 will see a Western release as well.



khululy commented on Video: Fresh Footage Of 3DS Action RPG Swords ...:

Kinda reminds me of Breath of Fire 4 and Xenogears, come think of it why have both rehash kings neglected those awesome games for so long...(looks at Square-Enix and Capcom) Looks neat but could use a few more animation frames in the character sprites.



khululy commented on SEGA Working on Second Round of 3D Classics:

I say, Nights into dreams! That game would be perfect on the 3DS, they should remake the entire thing even better then on the ps2! While I still do not truely understand the purpose of that game or even what is going on most of the time!
