Rerun commented on Legend of Zelda: Iron Knuckle Encounter Goes t...:

Hmmmm . . . Animal Crossing would also be a great idea. It would be similar to the LEGO city sets only with animal heads (like Chima, again). Too Nook's store, Mayor Tortimer's office, you can even have a museum and a train!



Rerun commented on Legend of Zelda: Iron Knuckle Encounter Goes t...:

I got back into LEGO for the MILLENIUM FALCON. After that, I just kept buying set after set. I'm after the minifigs and the vehicles. IMHO, Samus with her spaceship with two minifigs: one with armor, the other with the zero suit would be cool.
Starfox and team with Arwings and the tank would also be good. They would look like Chima sets!



Rerun commented on Hardware Review: Nintendo 2DS:

I would've bought this if there was a 2nd circle pad. I pre-ordered the 3DS and I'm part of the Ambassador Program and all but I've never really enjoyed the 3D feature. I tried it and I got dizzy. It's been off since then. I got myself a 3DSXL and I still don't use the 3D.



Rerun commented on Talking Point: Considering the Methods and Mea...:

As much as I hate scores, it's something that has to exist in reviews because people need things to be quantified. I like the Famitsu style where they have 4 reviewers. Helps reduce bias.
I don't like how Metacritic just averages scores though. I prefer to know the median rather than the average since a really biased score can throw off your average.
Personally, I read reviews just to make sure that the game isn't broken (controls, glitches, balance). If I like a game and it isn't broken, I'll definitely buy it (or wait for a discount and then buy it).



Rerun commented on Review: Disney Infinity Figurines:

I didn't start. I'd I did, I'd be hooked like a junkie. If they came up with Hercules and had all the monster figs like the Hydra, scaled to size, I won't be able to stop myself.



Rerun commented on Say Hello To The Nintendo 2DS - A 3DS without 3D:

For the target market, I think it works. Only wish they added the 2nd circle pad. It's already aesthetically bad so why not at least add function. I would've bought this if the 2nd circle pad was built in.



Rerun commented on Review: The Wonderful 101 (Wii U):

I love that the game isn't perfect to the point that it feels manufactured. Somehow had a Viewtiful Joe vibe going for it when I played the demo. Getting this on retail Day 1 to support Platinum.



Rerun commented on Review: The Smurfs 2 (Wii U):

I hate to say it but, I can't believe that WayForward made this. Is this the beginning of the end for them? When Treasure was asked to make a video game featuring Ronald McDonald, it was surprisingly good. With folks leaving WayForward and now this, I'm worried.



Rerun commented on Feature: Our Top 10 3DS Games - Summer 2013:

No love for Monster Hunter?

IMHO, it's one of the best games on the 3DS. Multiplayer is great. So many hours of gameplay. We hardly get any good 3rd party games and it gets dropped of the list of bests?!?!? Sorry if I'm overreacting.



Rerun commented on These Screens Show What NES Games Would Be Lik...:

IMHO games today are too easy or cheap. I remember challenging myself by trying to beat Quickman's stage without having to use Flashman's time stop ability.
Also I loved it when I proved to my cousin that you can beat Contra without the Konami Code!



Rerun commented on Animal Crossing: New Leaf 3DS XL Bundle Confir...:

Yeah. I can't complain if JPN gets specials but EU and NA should have similar packages. EU was ahead on the Pikachu edition, they also got the MH3U bundle. To make matters worse, I cant even get a Nintendo console on Amazon! I just don't understand what's up with NOA.



Rerun commented on Children Of The '80s, Here's That Battle Beast...:

I'm 35 as well. I didn't like these though. If they were going to do a video game out of an old toy line, I'm voting for MASK. It could play like Master Blaster with vehicle and non-vehicle segments. With multiple playable characters, That would be AWESOME!



Rerun commented on Inafune: Japanese Developers Are "Too Proud" A...:

I tend to enjoy games that make it big in the Japanese charts than the Western charts. Monster Hunter being the current top franchise for me. This is HUGE in Japan but so-so in the Western market. GTA, a big seller in the West, I didn't really enjoy.
I think it's all a matter of taste. It just so happens that the market is bigger in the west vs Japan.
Everyone should do what they're doing and swap notes every now and then so that they learn from each other.



Rerun commented on Introducing: Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for Beg...:

I almost gave up on this game when I started on the Wii due to frustration. Only when I found the right weapon did I start enjoying the game. For all rookies, I suggest that you download the demo and find the right weapon for you.

Oh and button mashing does NOT work!

Capture Guru is probably the best skill for first timers. Closest thing that you'll get to a health bar



Rerun commented on Capcom Would Love To Work With WayForward Again:

I'm a huge fan of Way Forward. Most of their games are Day 1 purchases for me. I hope they work with more of Capcom's licenses. They did great with Konami's.
… Now if only Treasure would make more SHMUPs, I would be in 2D heaven …



Rerun commented on Feature: Nintendo Life's Staff Favourites - NES:

Glad to see Mega Man 2 is there not 3. IMHO 2 had the best powers and usable in game (Metal Blade, anyone?)

CastleVania 3 was better on the FAMICOM. Grant's daggers were projectiles!

Why no Ninja Gaiden? That was had one of the tightest controls and best cutscenes on the NES?

No Love for Contra either.



Rerun commented on Review: Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (Wii U):

The demo featured just one aspect which was combat using different weapons. But MH is more than that, getting the right weapon, learning how to use it and reaping the rewards is something that they never covered in the demo. The "clunky" controls as some people, call it are part of Monster Hunter. I played Tri and it took me a good 15 hours to learn how to beat the Barroth. And it took me even more time to figure out the weapon that fit my skill and playing style. This IMHO has the best effort:reward ratio of all the games I ever played.



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

This is showy I only go digital if I absolutely have to. I prefer hardcopies. The only stuff I ever bought digital are the digital only releases.

IMHO, digital is just tough to manage. I remember when a friend of mine moved away from the US, he had issues with his iTunes purchases because he had to switch stores.



Rerun commented on Reaction: The Rayman Legends Delay Is a Low Bl...:

Ubisoft never committed that it was an exclusive. I would be upset if they did sine they would be going back on their word.

In the future, I think exclusives should stay exclusives, none of the timed exclusives crap. And if Sony, MS, or Nintendo want exclusives, they should invest money on the developer. This way developers don't get closed for releasing an exclusive that fails..
