maxcriden commented on This Game Boy Stage in Super Smash Bros. for N...:

Is there any confirmation that this is a stage and from some other cutscene or feature in the game?

(Also, there may not be any monochrome effect on characters in general; it might just be the alts for Kirby and Dedede only.)



maxcriden commented on Review: Wooden Sen'SeY (Wii U eShop):

@ThomasBW84, I appreciate the reply, thanks. I hadn't realized you were already being given such a hard time in here, haha. I didn't mean to add to that certainly. I appreciate the perspective and I'm sorry you didn't have a better time with the game, but I can definitely see its flaws so I understand your opinion. Thanks.

(BTW, Wiimote's d-pad too small? Next thing you're doing to tell me you don't like the amazing DS Lite d-pad.... )



maxcriden commented on Review: Master Reboot (Wii U eShop):


Thanks guys! I'm glad it is not terribly scary. I like thrillers but not horror-type games so it sounds like I could enjoy it.

P.S. Thomas I left you a longer comment/question in the Wooden Sen'SeY review if you have a chance to check it out. Thanks!



maxcriden commented on Review: Wooden Sen'SeY (Wii U eShop):

Thomas, what controller did you use? I used the Wiimote sans motion controls, and apart from some issues with grappling, I haven't had any real issue with the controls.

Edit: I see you used analog controls. I wonder how much easier you would've found the controls if you used the Wiimote d-pad. Also, as it stands it does kind of sound like in the review that you're forced to use analog controls; this is true if you use the GamePad but not if you use the Wiimote.

Double edit: I finished the review and I see you did mention alternative control schemes. I really wish you would've given it a shot with the Wiimote. I wonder if you might've enjoyed it much more that way. The grappling and general movement work pretty well that way (I'd imagine much better than with the analog stick).



maxcriden commented on 1001 Spikes Hitting 3DS and Wii U on 3rd June:

@ThomasBW84, assuming you (or another NLifer) already have the game for review purposes, I'm hoping you can answer a question for me. I've been really looking forward to it but when I saw the alternate character teaser trailer I saw that the female character is...kind of drawn in a cheesecake pin-up style and that's not really my kind of thing. It's one thing if that's concept art but if that's in the actual game in some capacity I'd really like to know going in (maybe that or some similar content is the reason for the T rating?). It's just not the kind of game I like to play. Thanks for the help, Thomas!



maxcriden commented on Preview: Rayman Legends:

Easily my most anticipated game for Wii U and the main reason I am planning to purchase a Wii U. My wife and I are one level away from 100% completion of Rayman Origins (we trade off levels) and plan to have it completed by the time this comes out. If this game is just as good as that one, it will be one of the best ever. If it's better, well, that will be incredible.
