khululy commented on Poll: Which New Nintendo 3DS Will You be Buying?:

I have my 3DS since it's launch day in europe and while I prefer the screen over that of the XL it's rather small and it's edges poke in my hand during the longer play periods.
the N3DS mostly irons out the issues I have with the regular 3DS so I think I will purchase one eventually but i'm still not sure if it's a day one or pre-order for me.



khululy commented on Reaction: Nintendo Direct Went Crazy With Reve...:

Dispite my very 'Murican avatar I am glad I live in Europe so I can still get my regular New3DS. Monsterhunt 4 looks sweet I never finished or gotten far in MH3 mainly due to the clunky circlepad pro (got that thing in a RE revelations bundle).
I am still not sure if it will be a day one buy for me maybe i'll wait a bit but as I've seen some australian user reviews it does seem like a fair improvement of the overall 3DS experience including a 3D that doesn't make your eyes swap sockets to see it properly.



khululy commented on New Nintendo 3DS Release Date Confirmed for 13...:

Sad day for the people who have no gamestop in their country :(
I also want the 'regular' version of the 3DS but fhey are certainly nice version of the system.
Still can't decide to buy NEW 3DS day one or wait a little.



khululy commented on Nintendo Download: 15th January (Europe):

@CTs_Lieutenant tell me about it I bought the original some time back for the SNES and cost me about 50 euros for just the cart (I do crazy stuff like that sometimes)

I might pick up after burner II as I really liked Galaxy force and Space harrier and for those who never played Demon's Crest.
Go get it! It's amazing!



khululy commented on Review: Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario Wor...:

When it comes to snes ports it's mostly screensize and audio that take the biggest hit and in case of donkey kong country it looks so washed out it's scary. while other games created for the GBA itself are mostly a lot better.

I'm not the biggest fan of super mario world. I don't think it's bad but I don't have the nostalgia attached to it.



khululy commented on Keiji Inafune's New Year's Message Includes Fr...:

This game reminds me of the strider remake.
I bet the gameplay is solid as a rock but the stages i have seen didn't look bad just bland. I can imagine having too busy graphics would make it hard to see all the action but I hope we get to see some impressive set pieces or something rather then sleek corridors.

After a quick look on the website it seems that the video shows a simple stage, there seem to be a lot going on in this game :P
I will be looking out for this game because I enjoy platform gaming



khululy commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

let me see...
The original Mario kart was great for it's time, feels somewhat clunky and old now.
Mario kart 64 was fun but I always felt that crash team racing did things a bit better.
Super circuit made the Snes version a bit more obeselete than it was by now.
Double Dash is great fun in co-op if you enjoy breaking friendships :P
Mario kart DS was a great effort but lacked a hint of polish due to the DS' limited 3D render abilities.
I thought the wii version was cool when played with a proper controller.
I lack any knowledge of MK 7 and 8 but both look like great additions to the series.



khululy commented on Review: Shadow of the Ninja (3DS eShop / NES):

I got this gamecart a few years back form friends who picked it up at a flea market, while it is no ninja gaiden it is still awesome and I found the rain effect in the 1st stage to be so impressive on the NES :P



khululy commented on Nintendo Download: 25th December (North America):

@Geonjaha I don't think belly dancing is interesting with winterclothes on plus I bet her genie half makes her not even feel a thing!
Glad the game designers fiancee (now wife) never designed her with the intention of being innovative.

As for the game... I have to wait until next year!



khululy commented on Capcom Has Now Sold 1.2 Million Copies of Supe...:

@MadAdam81 Sound like you hate Japanese Fighters :P

I've been playing fighting games on arcade and emulator(yes bad me but arcade boards are darn pricey) I always loved Street Fighter. I played SF IV on PC and it runs smoother then butter on a hot stove. I went for DOA on 3DS cuz i like it not being so button basher friendly as say tekken or MK. ( i never liked those dial-a-combo fighters much I want quarter circles!)

well maybe not seeing any street fighter on a nintendo system soon but I hope the new guilty gear game rocks my socks off like the first 2 did on pc :P



khululy commented on Miyamoto: We Are Working On Ideas For The Next...:

@Quorthon metroid fusion felt more like a squibly line then a straight one yes it was mostly linear but for a handheld game it's fitting in short burtsts you spend less time being lost while playing on the bus or anything. still a fine game imbo.

I do hope that nintendo gets better hardware mainly for the sake of people keeping quiet about that topic. It shows that you can make great games that run fluid on limited hardware and look good to boot instead of sluggish framerates to compete with the graphics of a pc with a videocard that costs as much as the console itself.

I also think Nintendo can learn a few things from the others about online features, sure they are on the right track but seem to try to figure it out their own way which kinda feels sometimes like reinventing the wheel...

I do wish Nintendo the best in the future because regardles of what the awards shows say Nintendo has been my winner of the console wars for 20 years dispite their bumblings.

It's like your old dog, sure it smells a bit funky but you remember the good times the bad times and you realize you have to say goodbye someday but the memories give you comfort. and to me sony and microsoft feel like the neighbours cat, sure they are cute and fuzzy but you are glad you don't have to feed the beasts that crap in your garden. :P

idk why nintendo gets so much flack, sony and M$ have nothing to show for their 1st year that isn't a multi-platform release or a yearly installment. ps2 and ps3 strugled with difficult to program hardware that gave it a sluggish start and xbox had little to no user base in Japan...
But I guess high winds blow on high hills.



khululy commented on Review: Xeodrifter (3DS eShop):

Look allright to burn some money on while it's on discount :P
Maybe we should stop calling them metroidvania and coin a new phrase like "side-xploring platformer" :)



khululy commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

"I think it's bizarre that anyone would want them not to make a phone. That's tantamount to saying you don't want the company to grow or evolve in any way. I think they should--but I think they won't because they are incapable of understanding the industry or offering anything competitive."

How is jumping on the "phone" bandwagon evolving? Nintendo should make their next handheld matter even more, make it's purchase even more worth it compared to having just a phone.
Mobile phone gaming succes is not gonna last forever there is already a gross oversaturation on that market.
Nintendo could make their handheld a bit more 'web' oriented maybe making it compatible with your phone like say... a streetpass app so you can streetpass while not having your 3DS with you.
Make communication with mobile phones possible etc. rather then just making a phone.
Nintendo is a TOY company not an electronics manufacturer like sony or samsung.



khululy commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

Why a phone... 3DS plays games, audio and video has a web browser all it needs is good texting support maybe a form of video chat support and you are good to go.
People rarely use phones to call anymore.
Nintendo products should not be used for updating facebook and checking your email in the bus. it's just wrong!



khululy commented on Nintendo Download: 11th December (Europe):

I will be getting the Phoenix games wright away !
I have the 2nd installment on my DS but never played the others but I love the series for they ooze personality ( albeit a quirky one).



khululy commented on Actor Is Suing Nintendo After Suffering Heart ...:

I highly doubt Nintendo is directly responsible for this they probably outsourced the event and all that. But I agree that if the mans claims are true regarding his work condition he has right to complain about that.
Still it's not good press for big N but Regie seems fine working in his ape suit all day



khululy commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Emphasizes the Nintendo Diffe...:

@hydeks Yes, wow sony ans MS are doing great. cough Their first year on the market and they still haven't really showed any reason to own their systems if you have a gaming pc and a wiiU already Sony and MS are getting high on their own succes while Nintendo get smacked down generation after generation as doomed or lost or whatever yet still manages to secure a place in a lot of gamers hearts by trying (not always succeeding) to be more then a "populair" platform.

I don't mean to say Sony and MS are terrible but they are not any better if you disregard sales figures (sales figures are a poor mark of quality) But no one yells MS or Sony are doomed because their first year is about as mediocre as nintendo WiiU's yes there are a lot of 3rd party games that Nintendo is lacking but as I stated before if you own a gaming pc and a wiiU MS and Sony need to do more to make their system worth it's money.



khululy commented on Konami Demands That Hardcore Gaming 101 Presen...:

Usually legal departments do not work hand in hand with the developers of companies.
Those pencil pushers are just doing their jobs it's just standard procedure I suppose same as with a lot of Nintendo Legal issues.

And Konami making a timeline/art-book like nintendo did with Zelda would not be a bad idea and maybe they just want a cut of the books profit.

These are all speculation... I am not informed enough into the madness that is copyright law.



khululy commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Outlines Core Nintendo Philos...:

The rehashing Nintendo does with their IP's is more like a advancement of their series to see how far a concept can go without loosing it's essence.
Compared to EA's sport titles or the muck Activision is vomiting out Nintendo delivers 1 or 2 versions of their series on each console's lifespan we got 3 pikmin in 13 years and 14 fifa's in the xbox 360's lifespan? Now I know that fifa is the pinnacle of milking and pikmin not so much but even if you compare that to NSMB releases it kinda pales in comparison with games like CoD and it's clones.
Yes there might be a sense of arrogance in their way of looking at things but they are still right about the oversaturation of the "me too!" kind of games that flock the market.
Nintendo might not be the big innovator in the entire market anymore as indie devs have much more creative freedom overall, they are still the best of the big publishers as it comes to moving the medium forward instead of pushing it into stagnation solely for monetary gain.

It feels like Nintendo still wants to make games and make money with them rather then make money by using the popular medium (games) as a device.



khululy commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Outlines Core Nintendo Philos...:

If the studios like ubisoft, activision and EA took a bit more ques in creativity from Nintendo and their studios then Nintendo can in turn learn a bit about western busines models and online utility.

I for one love games that just ooze with character not just a realistic looking digitized version of our world with a coat of edgy and urban gray and a causian male around his 30's.
Sure it brings in the greens but like Shigeru said: "it's boring"



khululy commented on SEGA Confirms Second Batch of 3D Classics for ...:

I feel like this line up is not as strong as the first one in terms over overall variety and I truely wanted to see sonic and street of rage 2 being released in this series soon or maybe Comix zone ( I would buy that as a simple 2D port)

Outrun and Afterburner look good I have truely no experience with Fantasy zone but the shooting sound annoys me in the trailer so that kinda throws me off.



khululy commented on Gallery: Gorge Yourself on These Assets For Th...:

@Kirk you are confusing your N64 with your gamecube... there is no way these graphics are close to anything an N64 could produce ever... It's more along the line of the better Dreamcast games or early PS2 titles.

As a fan of the Zelda series and never had the chance to play majora's mask this game is a perfect investment. This game is a rebuild not a retexture people did lots of work remaking all the assest etc a full price for this game is perfectly acceptable.



khululy commented on Review: Donkey Kong Country (Wii U eShop / Sup...:

@RedDevilAde Maybe give 2 and 3 a shot, they offer a lot more then the first game,

DKC will always be a testament of the "console wars" of the 90's It stands like a monolith in time, proof of how ageless games can be and how Nintendo claimed victory over the 16 bit market and managed to keep the SNES alive for 4 more years against CD based consoles like PS1 and the Saturn.



khululy commented on Review: Turtle Tale (Wii U eShop):

Reminds me somewhat of those turtles from jazz jackrabbit.

maybe those two work well as a bundle with enhanced 3D layering.... anyway.

Not having played this but having played my fair share of sidescrollers in my life i can say this score is well deserved.



khululy commented on Shovel Knight For Wii U & 3DS Launches In Euro...:

This is good news a bit late but better late then never.

And to those who "don't care" or "lost interest" You probably never cared enough for this game in the first place but that's my view of things :P

Now lets hope shantae turns out well and together with phoenix wright this could be a good holiday season for my 3DS
