rushiosan commented on Talking Point: It's Too Early to Write Off the...:

Now that's the pinnacle of fanboyism... seriously, I'll come back by tomorrow to read the comments after this Direct so we can argue something. For now, Wii U is still doomed to failure without major games in 2015. "Cheer up" articles won't lead us anywhere.



rushiosan commented on Talking Point: The Legend of Zelda on Wii U Ma...:

There is no way to fill the gap. Xenoblade X is an astounding game but has a limited audience. RPGs are NOT for everyone, specially JRPGs these days. I believe it will have great sales considering the original was a massive hit during the last days of Wii. But once again, it doesn't even come closer to what a new Zelda would mean to Wii U this year. You can't put any other game, system or feature to replace a Zelda title release.

I hope they don't find out too late.



rushiosan commented on Video: Xenoblade Chronicles 3D Visuals Stand U...:

Couldn't finish this game. Got bored after around 20 hours of it and never wanted to come back. I hope the New 3DS version makes me change my mind. I blame the excessive amount of content and very very large maps. The learning curve isn't pleasant for the most part of time and it just gets worse to manage when new characters arrive. I felt like I was playing a MMORPG in a beta test server.

If you're good at math and gets a 9/10 on exams and all your friends get 5 and below, you pass and everyone else fails. That's capitalism for dumbs.

If you get a 9/10 and everyone gets 5 and below, the teacher adds everything then divides by the total number of students. You won't get a 9 anymore. That's communism for dumbs.



rushiosan commented on Nintendo Looking To Offer Affordable Smartpho...:

Do a service like Netflix where you pay a small fee and have an unlimited access to lots of content, in this case, an endless library of classic games ranging from NES to N64. That would basically kill emulation if executed properly. I prefer my NES/SNES/GBC VC titles over any emulator I had. Too bad there isn't enough games neither a wide selection of classics - many of them have never seen the daylight yet.

"not replacing videogames"

Not 100% true. Motion Controls are already doing it to classic gaming, and you literally had no choice to play the best Wii titles without them. I expect to see mandatory QOL functions embedded in future games as an important part of them, even if now the say it won't be happening. I don't want that to happen.



rushiosan commented on Review: HarmoKnight (3DS eShop):

It's far from being a fun game, even if it's hugely polished and charming. It's the same deal as Rhythm Heaven for Wii, but without any memorable song. The gameplay is sloppy enough to make it a frustrating experience. I don't regret getting it, but seriously, I've played until world 4 and I'm already sick of it.



rushiosan commented on Review: Gunman Clive 2 (3DS eShop):

@Sforzando 90-120 minutes long if you choose Clive on Normal. The girl takes fairly less, I'd say half of Clive's time thanks to her floating jumps, which means less cheap deaths. The Chief takes longer. He's basically a duck with a spear.



rushiosan commented on Review: Gunman Clive 2 (3DS eShop):

I must admit: the level design is absolutely INFURIATING to the point it makes DKC Returns easy. In other hand, the levels have the perfect size to be completed before the frustration makes you want to throw your 3DS on the wall.

That said, I loved the sequel as much as the first one. The game takes a while to suck you in (longer than its predecessor), but once it does, you can't put it down before you finish. The replay value is also higher.


  • More colors
  • Dinosaurs in South America/Brazil
  • Even more clever references to classic 2D platformers from 8 and 16-bit era
  • Steampunk and Samurai themes are finally here
  • The boss battles are much more intense, specially the final boss
  • Yeah, the final boss. That's a good reason to purchase this game.


  • Sometimes the level design can be frustrating
  • Huge gaps between some platforms makes jumping trial and error
  • Not many gun upgrades. No random items during boss battles (at least on Normal mode, haven't tried Easy yet)
  • Overused gravitational switches
  • On-rail stages (flight ones) have sluggish movement


rushiosan commented on Nintendo Download: 29th January (Europe):

I quit when I saw "pointer controls" in Metroid Prime description. Seriously. Why not simply put it on GamePad? You could just use ZR/ZL for nunchuck action commands on MP3. Both 1 and 2 worked flawlessly on GC controller, then New Play Control mechanics just ruined it.

TLTR: I'll pass.



rushiosan commented on Nintendo Shows Off Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate's...:

It didn't catch me by the demo. I always found the mechanics and gameplay on MH series way too sluggish, slow, imprecise. Of course the whole hunting thing is a bucket of (nearly) endless fun, but overall, it's not the kind of game for me. I'm happy the demo is unlimited, though.



rushiosan commented on Weirdness: The Pokémon Timeline Seems as Craz...:

Nintendo games doesn't have to make sense in a timeline. Zelda doesn't have a timeline. Period. Even if Eiji Aonuma says there is one, it makes no f* sense, everything lacks reasonable connections, so you better enjoy them separately. Same for regular Mario and Pokémon games.



rushiosan commented on Rosalina & Luma amiibo Exclusive to Target in ...:

I'm out of this Amiibo mess, hoping the whole thing sinks faster. The idea was poorly executed. High prices, very limited supplies, retailer exclusives (the worst part if you live in a country without any of these stores) and limited usage to only 1 game per figure. Seriously. It was great at E3 but now it's just a big pile of "meh".



rushiosan commented on Nintendo Maintains Its Vague Rhetoric on amiib...:

I hope that stupid idea ends up sinking. First the limited games that support them (and I doubt there will be any significant change on that list). Second the very very limited stock plus store exclusives. Third the inflated prices. Now that "they're never coming back" part. Seriously, I have enough reasons to spend my money in actual action figures rather than Amiibos. It was a nice idea when showed at E3 but poorly executed right after.



rushiosan commented on Feature: These Are The Mario Kart 8 DLC Packs ...:

None of them actually made me interested. Lots of cool characters and everything, but they don't have enough appeal for a Mario Kart game, or don't fit in properly. It would turn the whole thing into something else that's not MK8.



rushiosan commented on Talking Point: The amiibo Range Grows, Yet Key...:

It has enough reasons to fail and I'm pretty sure it will. Once again, Nintendo is late. If this thing came before Skylanders or Disney Infinity it would be truly innovative and would catch people's attention, like "we made the first home console that merged toys and games". Now it's just an expensive way to make you look cool while using NFC on a Nintendo console. There's not even an explanation about why you should store and carry such data...



rushiosan commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Pre-Purchase and P...:

@Tritonus It still fills up some space even if you move it to and external HD, and if I'm not mistaken, you still need to temporarily transfer the whole content as a "cache" to Wii U internal memory while playing. At least that's how most phones do today and how Wii used to. Not completely sure though.



rushiosan commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Pre-Purchase and P...:

That's why having a 32GB internal storage hardware is such a stupid idea. Why not just double it as a default? What about idiots, I mean people, who purchased the 8GB version back in the days? Man, Nintendo is a step back in basically every aspect of digital content distribution. At least the digital version should be 30-50% cheaper, so it would make people REALLY care about going digital instead physical.
