meppi commented on Sega Producer Explains Exactly What Went Wron...:

"In focus tests, we heard all the time, people were sick of speed, Sonic was too fast, they wanted to slow down. Speed was shelved because we were under the impression people didn't want it. Speed is always a Sonic thing, we didn't focus on that."

Well okay then... :-/
Yet it didn't hit that maybe, just maybe the speed wasn't the problem but instead focus tests just don't work like most of these people think they do?
Design by focus test is just such a terrible idea overall.
Just make the best possible product that you can with an actual vision behind it for a change. If it doesn't fly, well at least you tried.



meppi commented on Nintendo Confirms Japanese eShop Release Dates...:

I really hope that Shibata will be giving us another hanabi festival this year and deliver some previously Japanese only games to Europe. It's been way too long since we got one.

Zangeki no Reginleiv is one of my absolute favourite Wii games and one of my favourite games ever even, and also the reason why I had to mod my Wii (along with ExcieBots). Even bought the game twice since I love it so much. Wanted a spare copy just in case.

I would take a direct port in Europe without blinking an eye, but even better would be a simple menu translation one since that will be the main stumbling block for most people to enjoy the game to it's fullest.

I wish there was a way to make this happen somehow. :'(



meppi commented on Rumour: A Planned 2.5D Metroid Title For 3DS G...:


Oof, that would be heartbreaking. :(
Although I have a good feeling that a Metroid revival is on the way, hopefully for both the 3DS and Wii U.
There certainly have been a couple of hints in the past year, even though they have been very subtle.
Mario Kart is behind us, so is Smash, plenty of Mario, Donkey Kong and Soon Zelda for 3DS and Wii U. So Metroid being next makes too much sense not to be in the books as one of the big titles to build 2016 around.



meppi commented on Remake Request: Burning Rangers:

Oh wow, when first seeing the iconic image pop up combined with the word "remake", I thought it was actually being done.
Feel a bit sad now. Such a wonderful game.
Only thing that let it down a little was that it pushed the Saturn a little bit too hard on certain fronts. Still a pure classic through and through.



meppi commented on Review: Mario Golf: World Tour (3DS):

Good on you guys for doing the review like this.
Very refreshing from nearly all other sites and publications who don't see any problem with reviewing a partial game and pretending to know how everything including the multiplayer works in the real world.
battlefield 4 reviewers, I'm looking at all of you....



meppi commented on Yumi's Odd Odyssey Is Coming To Europe Under I...:

So glad we finally got confirmation on this as well as that they are keeping the original name.
Also loving how they refer to this game as a Rubbering
Action Game, which brings back a ton of memories of the very first in the series! :)



meppi commented on Review: Yumi's Odd Odyssey (3DS eShop):

@dumedum Completely disagree.
Putting Gravity Rush as a example of a game where it's an absolute joy just to move around in the world in this review, is spot on.
I actually completely forgot about the Sony sister-site and now have it bookmarked thanks to this link.



meppi commented on Review: Yumi's Odd Odyssey (3DS eShop):

Huge fan of the series ever since the Super Famicom game.
They might even ask €60 for this and I would still pick it up day one.
Sadly a EU release hasn't been confirmed yet, but I'm hoping it doesn't take much longer.
Already imported the physical version from Japan, but I don't yet have a Japanese 3DS. Damn you region lock! :(



meppi commented on Sega Has "No Plans" To Release Sonic Boom In J...:

Yeah whatever.
Sega outsourcing the series to an unproven western developer is more than enough to have doubts about this will turn out. They have tried this in the past with the series and it never turned out very good. Neither does it turn out well for other series/developers: look at how Golden Axe, Bionic Commando, Lost Planet 3, etc have turned out.
Not to mention the way they are "redesigning" the characters alone makes my abomination comment pretty darn relevant.



meppi commented on Review: Brawl Brothers (Wii U eShop / Super Ni...:

While it might not be on the same level as Final Fight and Streets of Rage or even Double Dragon, I do have a big soft spot for Rival Turf.
But for whatever reason never got the sequels. Nice surprise to see this one on the eshop. Will pick this up very soon.



meppi commented on Rayman Legends And Splinter Cell Blacklist Bot...:

I was ready to buy Rayman day one in February. Yet, I've still have to pick up a copy due to the delay. A lot more games have taken priority over it while February was quite barren.
Waiting for it to hit bargain bin price now as the coming months will be expensive enough as it is.
They brought it upon themselves if you ask me.



meppi commented on Mighty No. 9 Passes Wii U Stretch Goal With A ...:

Well considering I upped my pledge from $20 to $60 just to help the console versions funded, you could say I'm looking forward to the game. ;)
Hoping some of those other stretch-goals will be met as well as they would certainly up the replayability of the game.



meppi commented on Keiji Inafune Thanks Mighty No. 9 Backers in N...:

So glad for them. They all seem so very excited. :)
Can't wait for this game to be released even if it takes a long time. Really hope that we'll be able to get the console versions funded as well as I'd love to have it on the Wii U.



meppi commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Reiterates That There's "Noth...:

Didn't expect to get anything and I'm certainly not miffed about it either.
If anything I'm surprised and delighted with all the free stuff I've been getting from Nintendo this past year, be it on the Wii U VC with the Famicom anniversary games which were basically free, as well as all the promotions for the 3DS that gave me several eshop versions of retail games! Been happy to help people out with a free copy of Monster Hunter and Animal Crossing as well, so I think Nintendo have been very generous already.
