sketchturner commented on Freedom Planet Bug Causes Screen Freezing Prob...:

@inverse Just because I play games that have stories doesn't mean I care about them. I typically skip cutscenes and dialogue whenever possible. I recognize that many people enjoy game stories. That's great. I'm just not one of them. I play for the gameplay and it makes no difference to me how barebones or intricate a story is. Don't project your preferences onto everyone else.



sketchturner commented on Review: STARWHAL (Wii U eShop):

So if I want a two player eshop game should I go for Starwhal or Sportsball? Both pique my interest but I don't do multiplayer enough to justify purchasing both.



sketchturner commented on Mario Memories: The Incredible Impact of Super...:

I will always remember 9/9/99. To most people it was the release of the Dreamcast but for me it was the day I finally had enough money to buy N64. I had spent three years turning my room into an N64 shrine with posters, drawings, toys, clothes, etc. The only thing I didn't have was the actual system. Haha.



sketchturner commented on Mario History: Super Mario 64 - 1996:

This game will always hold a magical place in my heart. I was 11 when it released and the level of excitement these controls, graphics, and level design created cannot be overstated.



sketchturner commented on Mario History: Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 ...:

The original Wario Land is phenomenal. IMO it is better than even Super Mario World. A lot of touches of brilliance in that game... My favorite being how several of the levels get altered as things happen in the overworld, making their replays significantly different.
