mastersworddude commented on Ex-Castlevania Chief Koji Igarashi Is Grateful...:

I hate the term "Metroidvania" It's used so loosely nowadays where any 2D adventure game with an interconnected world and backtracking is called Metroidvania. (I've even heard a 3D game Batman Arkham Asylum called Metroidvania. Really?) Just call it Metroid-like, Castlevania SOTN didn't add anything to the style to be included in the term. (Besides mediocre RPG elements, which most of these so called Metroidvania games never even have.)



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

So from what I gather with these divisive review scores, it's an okay platformer, it's just not good enough to make up for the lack of creativity, uninspired graphics, bad music, and lack of Yoshi's island charm.



mastersworddude commented on Nintendo Disables Swapnote's SpotPass Service ...:

What the hell? The 3DS effectively has no way to message your friends now because Nintendo wants to play nanny?
Taking away basic OS features like this because some people use it inappropriately is really infuriating
At least give the 3DS Miiverse functionality before taking it away.



mastersworddude commented on Working With Western Developers Is All About T...:

@Araknie This doesn't make any sense to me, Donkey Kong Country, Banjo, Metroid Prime were developed by western game studios. I don't see why it matters, I play Nintendo because I like to play amazingly polished, traditional, feel good games, they give me feeling most other consoles and PC games can't. If a developer can help Nintendo to release games like that, they can be based in Mars for all I care.



mastersworddude commented on Mega Man FPS "Polarized Opinions" Within Capco...:

The Wind Waker comparison isn't apt since it's still majorly the same series, just new art style, but you still knew it's Zelda, with majorly the same tone.

This on the other hand looks like Dead Space or Halo with Mega Man slapped on it to appeal to the superficial western gamers. (Which is all Inafune cares about nowadays.)

It's not comparable to Metroid Prime either, since MP didn't completely change tone, it's still Metroid with similar ideas but in a new perspective.

If any comparison is apt to this it's DmC.



mastersworddude commented on Epic Games Rules Out Unreal Engine 4 For Wii U:

Oh man, all the hype from Nintendrones about 3rd party games on WIIU sure died down lately, Now it's just "I only like Nintendo games anyways!"
Remember when everyone was saying it won't have the same 3rd party issues the Wii had? Yeah.. Same problem again.



mastersworddude commented on Talking Point: This Fan's Tragic Tale Highligh...:

If there is one thing I hate about Nintendo Life it's the countless Nintendrones who defend Nintendo no matter what and will never admit Nintendo could make a mistake.

Tying it to the console is really an archaic system for full retail downloads.



mastersworddude commented on You Can't Use Your Wii Virtual Console Saves W...:

People in full force making excuses anytime Nintendo makes questionable descisions.
I don't get it, it's not like it is not techincally possible to do it, the PSP and PS3 can share save files for PSOne classics, which use different emulators.
