maceng commented on Review: G.G Series SCORE ATTACKER (DSiWare):

@KeeperBvK Agreed. When I read that Galaga was mentioned as a shooter hell, I thought to myself "What Galaga is he talking about?"

Still, great review, but no mention on how long this game is, or if it can be replayed with higher difficulty or whether it has powerups and such. Any additional thoughts, Mitchel?



maceng commented on Poll: Is Pokkén Tournament The Wii U Release...:

Well, they are bringing it in Spring 2016, but if they really want to sell some extra Wii U's, then a better date should have been Late Fall 2015, like towards the beginning of December.

I know that it takes a lot of time to do the translation and whatnot, but the Wii u could really use a game like this.



maceng commented on Take a Look at the New 'Green Blob' Pokémon:

Thomas, what about more Pokemon Shuffle news? I think this is the first piece of news regarding Pokemon Shuffle in 3 weeks, albeit all the recent updates and special Pokemon released. Whats up with that, NL?



maceng commented on Video: Summing Up The Good And Bad Of Devil's ...:

Would you buy the game for yourself? Let's say at 30 bucks or it will still not be worth it?

For me, I think I'll buy it, not at full retail, but maybe at around 35 bucks. I have the impression that it will retail for just 50 dollars but I digress.



maceng commented on Video: Summing Up The Good And Bad Of Devil's ...:

No. Everyone wanted it to be a "Very Good" game, not just Good.
In the current state of the Wii U, and with a year that so far has been barren from very good games (except Splatoon and a couple of indies), we needed a Very Good game. And specially a mature game.



maceng commented on Playtonic Happy to Move Away From "Box-Ticking...:

"Developer Playtonic - which is made up of former Rare staffers and, in recent months, has added more in the form of Kevin Bayliss (Killer Instinct), Dean Wilson (Kinect Sports) and Steve Burke (Kameo) - ..."

So, hired three staffers that have played (pun intended) a part in three games that all start with the letter "K". Is there a hidden meaning behind this? Is the KKK sponsoring this game? Let wild speculation begin!!



maceng commented on Pokémon Shuffle Receives Yet Another Code for...:

I decided to always focus on getting just 330 coins, using an ever revolving group of Pokemon (one strong, two middle ground and one weak). I manage to get between 900 and 1200 coins every time I play. (330x4 + 0, 330x3+130+30, 330x3+130+0, 330x2+130x2+30 are my usual out comings)



maceng commented on Pokémon Shuffle Gets Its First Ever Escalatio...:

Same here. Haven't been able to max one single Pokemon. I think that Ampharos is my highest level Pokemon... at 7.

I played like 3 times a day (about 15 hearts), and I tend to use my coins specially in order to upgrade them, but to no avail. Having said that, I haven't spent one single cent.



maceng commented on Nintendo of America's Newest Recruit Is Bowser:

"Effective today, Doug Bowser (no relation to the King Koopa and Mario's longtime nemesis) will oversee a variety of sales-related functions, including Sales, In-store Merchandising, Retail Strategy and Retail Marketing.#

In other news, amount of Bowser's related paraphernalia skyrockets.



maceng commented on Pokémon Shuffle Celebrates 3.5 Million Downlo...:

Look, just get the following Pokemon:
083 Ampharos, level 2 (key to break the walls at each side).
078 Lucario, level 5 (I think I did it with level 4).
138 Scyther, level 3 (much needed).
The fourth Pokemon does not matter as the game will remove the least powerful. Still, I usually place Slurpuf, as it damage can increase randomly. (level 5).
No special items needed.



maceng commented on Pokémon Shuffle Celebrates 3.5 Million Downlo...:

Well, Big N definitely wants you to spend money with this Safari Challenge. I didn't and managed to get 4 of the 5 Pokemons, sticking with a fighter and bug Pokemons. Now, since I'm only missing one of the Dark Pokemon (I think is Sharpedo or something like it), I arrange my Pokemon set accordingly, waiting for it to show up. No luck in more than 30 occasions.



maceng commented on New Safari Event Now Live In Pokémon Shuffle:

By the way, have you used the free passcode given away a while ago?

Just type 20150007 on the passcode area, and you'll get 2 Mega Start, very handy against Mega Gengar indeed. Also, you should try the moves +5 power up as Mega Gengar gives you very limited moves to try to catch him, I think,



maceng commented on New Safari Event Now Live In Pokémon Shuffle:

i don't remember what lineup I used to defeat him, but along with Articuno and MewTwo, is the hardest Pokemon to catch. Having said that, just hit the optimize button and make sure to select 1.5x increase in experience points (costs 300) to increase your chances for the next time. If you need extra coins, try to beat Meowth using 3 weak and one strong Pokemon and grab at least 330 coins (by forming a 4-coins line).



maceng commented on New Safari Event Now Live In Pokémon Shuffle:

I loved Pokemon Shuffle, but this Safari Party is clearly a way to make you use Super Poke Balls (and spend coins, and spend real money to do so). I have truly strongh Pokemon (I beat MewTwo already), and set an special lineup in order to defeat grass Pokemon and just couldn't after 5 tries. Also, the catchability is pretty low and even thou I managed to defeat a Cherubi in just one turn, I couldn't catch it.



maceng commented on International StreetPass Week to Bring New Str...:

I live in Dominican Repulic and I must admit that Streetpass hit are very, very rare. The other day I went with my kids to a college picnic day, and I got a measly 3 hits...

Now, we usually rely on our own 3ds (we have more than 15 of them), to keep the streetpass hits coming, specially for Pokemon Shuffle.

Having said that, I really enjoy the Streetpass games, in small short bursts. We already finished the dungeon one, and we are at the end (we think) of the Mii Squad.



maceng commented on Akihiro Hino on Why Fantasy Life 2 is Not Comi...:

Same here. I bet Fantasy Life was an incredibly good game, but there is a lot of that on the 3DS. My backlog reaches a year long, and games like Shovel Knight, last Shantae and several Etrian Odessy games are clamoring to be played with.



maceng commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Plans for DLC and Mi...:

i don't really see what;s the problem with locking content on the amiibos, It is just more convenient that having to download anything. Yes, you pay for the figurine and for certain amount of game, that's it. It's like complaining that after buying a car, the salesman calls you and offer a new stereo or something and that can be readily attached to your car, for a given price.

Even day one DLC does not bother me. If I buy Mario Kart and found it to have a lot of content for what I paid for, then if they offer more of it, I'm game (pun intended).



maceng commented on New Fire Emblem on 3DS Takes Shape as Two Sepa...:

So many crybabies...

With Awakening I got like 80 hours out of the game. I bought it with a Shin Megami offer: buy both, get 30 bucks in return. So it cost me around 25 dollars. It was a steal for the amount of content.

If each of these releases amount to the same or more , er, amount, of content, then I won't mind at all.
