sandwhich commented on Indie Puzzler The Witness May Explore a Wii U ...:

Jonathan Blow knows how to make a puzzle game (Braid was exquisite), and this is looking great. Day 1 buy.

EDIT: Helping a common misconception out of the world; the line drawing is how you communicate with the world, not the actual puzzles.



sandwhich commented on Review: Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward (3DS):

But your avatar is the Funyarinpa, how couldn't you have picked up VLR?

@Mike Mason

Anyway, the text and score don't really seem to fit. Your only complaints are the sometimes unwieldy puzzle room controls (which I agree with), but other than that your text is nothing but praise. Did it score an 8 because 'it's not for everyone'?

Also, you forgot to mention the 3DS's PEC room save bug.

EDIT: to all people judging thiss on the demo, note that this game's selling point is it's mindblowing story and ending, something which is hard to highlight in a demo.



sandwhich commented on New 3DS Sizzle Reels Show Their Wares:

It's bizarre that they didn't even mention Virtue's Last Reward. It's one of the best scoring games of the year (9.5 from IGN, and much more) and it just came out for their system.



sandwhich commented on 3DS System Update Locks Out a Lot of Flashcard...:

If the DSi/3DS didn't have region lock, I'd be okay with this. But as a European, I simply don't have another way to get things like Pokemon Conquest outside of buying a whole second 3DS (mind you, I buy a copy of the game so the developers get their money).



sandwhich commented on Wii U Pre-Order Guide:

What exactly does the ZombiU Premium Pack include?

I would guess:
black WiiU console, black WiiU controller and ZombiU. Is this correct?



sandwhich commented on Rising Star Games To Publish Zero Escape In PA...:


1. You can import the previous game from the US, the original DS had no region lock so you can play it on any DS or 3DS (it's damn great, I recommend it).

2. From what I've heard, the stories are largely unrelated. This game has some nods to the previous one and one character returns, but you absolutely don't need to have played it to enjoy this.
