Sneaker13 commented on Review: Titanic Mystery (3DS eShop):

If you have a change to get Titanic: Adventure Out Of Time for the PC, then definately get it. One of the best games with the Titanic and a fantastic point-and-click adventure in general.



Sneaker13 commented on Video: Take a Look at All of the 3DS HOME Menu...:

I hate the music of the first few Mario related. So loud. I really like the subtle music in the stamped felt and branded wood and the music in the "generic" designs (stars, stripes etc.) But those are just dull to look at. So if I got some money to burn, I will just get the branded wood one.



Sneaker13 commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

Don't mind the new system, but pretty bummed that some games can only be played on this new one. I have that circle pad, but why not make those games use that pad. I really don't want to upgrade.



Sneaker13 commented on Somebody At Ubisoft Really Doesn't Like Mario ...:

I don't like it too. Real life cars have no place in the Mario Kart universum. But glad to see that there are some Nintendo fans at Ubisoft. Hopefully this mean they would reconsider skipping the Wii U with the new Assassin's Creed game.



Sneaker13 commented on Nintendo Download: 22nd May (Europe):

Nice week, Picross e4 is a no brainer for me. And I will get Klonoa for sure. Didn't expect that one. Still in doubt about Swords & Soldiers, love the WiiWare, so I will wait for the review to see if it adds anything..



Sneaker13 commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

Professor Layton versus Phoenix Wright and Pokémon Link Battle will dominate my handheld gaming this weekend. But I will probably spend most time with Bosch's Damnation, a new PC adventure game from MDNA games. Really looking forward to that one.



Sneaker13 commented on Review: Pokémon Link: Battle! (3DS eShop):

This is an awesome game. Really addicting and I like the complexity of starting with the right number and the right Pokémon. I'm very quickly in Link Chance, which is even more fun. Trying to clear the field and then the field next to it and so on is a lot of fun and needs a lot of quick thinking ahead. It looks great, it sounds great and I love how the Pokémon are used and wild Pokémon can be unlocked after a certain goal is reached. Love it.



Sneaker13 commented on Nintendo Download: 6th February (Europe):

Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward looks really interesting for this price. But I think I really want a retail version of this game. But that price. What to do, what to do. And perhaps that Titanic game if it's any good.



Sneaker13 commented on We Cannot Continue Without Winning, But It's N...:

@zionich Nintendo's problem isn't the 3DS. After they have dropped the price, they started to release great games for it. Both retail as download titles, both first party games and third party games. So the 3DS is fine.

The VC should always be a bonus on any device, not it's main selling point. People who buy a new console don't do that to play NES, SNES or N64 games. I love the Nintendo for adding backward compatibility to there handheld and consoles in this and previous gens. But in the end, you buy a new console to play new games.

Nintendo will get there with the Wii U. But it's worrying to me that they made the same mistake twice in a row. The 3DS and Wii U took sometime to get great new games. But the 3DS got there and the Wii U have a great line up so far for 2014.



Sneaker13 commented on We Cannot Continue Without Winning, But It's N...:

I really don't understand why everyone is bringing up the VC as the savior for the Wii U. I think the release scedule of the VC is just fine as it is. Nintendo and everyone complaining about the VC should realise that they need to invest in NEW games. VC is a nice bonus, but you want people to buy a Wii U, not a NES or SNES.

So just make people excited about the Wii U. There are a lot of games coming that people are excited for. Mario Kart 8, the new Donkey Kong Country, the upcoming Smash Bros game. And people were excited for Pikmin 3 and Super Mario 3D World that got great reviews. Keep making those games, invest in some great third party games. Really looking forward to Watch_Dogs myself. Invest in getting those big names. And don't forget the Wii U Ware service with smaller, innovative games and make it easy for the indies to make games for the system.

Second you should advertise the hell out of the Wii U. I live in the Netherlands and I haven't see much tv ads for Wii U titles. They really need to pick this up. I bet most "normal" people don't know the difference between the Wii and the Wii U. Let alone that they even know what new and exciting games they can play with it.



Sneaker13 commented on Review: Dr. Luigi (Wii U eShop):

I love Dr. Mario but I never knew this was going to be 15 bucks. I thought it was 10 like the WiiWare Dr. Mario. Pretty steep price for basically a colorswap. Still might get this though. I bet Dr. Mario for the Wii will be getting deserted online. So I still need to pick this up.



Sneaker13 commented on Bird Mania 3D Christmas Flying onto the 3DS eS...:

This is actually the worst game to slap a Christmas stamp on. It's about a poor little bird who wakes up with his family gone. He flies after them, but never reach them till he eventually dies. Wow... Merry Christmas.

But still, I will get this. Loved the original and online leaderboards. Too bad there is no story mode where the little bird eventually reaches his family. And it's too bad that it doesn't come earlier and in time for Christmas. Oh well. Still will get it.



Sneaker13 commented on Review: Secret Mysteries in New York (3DS eShop):

It's called Secret Mysteries in Amsterdam in The Netherlands. I think it was a terrible game. Boring scene's some items are very difficult to spot, the story is not interesting at all and the way the story is told is soo boring. The locations are exchangable as well. I never had the feeling I was in Paris, London, Amsterdam or New York. Such a shame.



Sneaker13 commented on Pokémon Art Director Would Like to Simplify t...:

I have to agree on multiple levels. I've got three big gripes about the serie.

First the design of the Pokémon. The first generation was awesome and there were hardly any Pokémon I didn't like (they were there, but most of them were great). But with each gen they got worse. Like they were running out of ideas. I mean, we have Ice cream Pokémon, garbage back pokemon, candle Pokemon, key pokemon. Really? Not to mention how the have nice Pokémon en screw them up by making them evolve in terrible Pokémon that hardly look like the original ones.

Second the evolutions. This was pretty simple in the first few games, but got extremely complicated. Some evolve at day, some at night, some need to be in a certain location, some need happiness, some need to hold an item when breeded etc. etc. It is just so overly complicated.

Then the moves. In the later games I have no idea what a move does. Even with a description. And especially in the last game. Some moves looks very impressive but don't appear to do much. I would however add two moves to each Pokémon. I think four is too little, I would rather have six. I find it really hard to believe that all Pokémon simply forget moves. Really? I also hate using moves outside of battle. I don't want to give up a move slot just for things like cutting down trees, breaking rocks, surfing on the water etc. etc. Just give Pokémon these abilities by default. Do I really need to learn a bird Pokémon how to fly, a water Pokémon how to swim/surf and a big, strong Pokémon how to break rocks. I don't think so.



Sneaker13 commented on Feature: Our Favourite, Quirky and Baffling Po...:

I laughed out loud when I read Stephen Kelly's piece. I have exactly the same thing. I was like "Ugh, I just want to catch and train Pokémon, not make a stupid video." Three hours later I had an awesome video.

I also like the reference to DBZ with the 9000 quote and the reference to that rhythm game they made.

O and I was so excited that I got Bulbasaur, it hasn't left my party and I just love playing with him in Pokémon Anime.



Sneaker13 commented on Nintendo Wants To Close Down This Open-Source ...:

I have to give the student credit. This is an amazing thing to do in a web browser. But why in the world didn't he come up with some new characters, environments, new level layout, new enemies and just make it a new game. Why do they always have to use Mario to show what they have achieved. Of course Nintendo should take this down. Come on, it is Super Mario Bros, but then in a browser.



Sneaker13 commented on Review: Secrets of the Titanic 1912-2012 (3DS ...:

If you are looking for a great Titanic game, try finding a copy of Titanic: Adventure out of Time for the PC. A brilliant adventure game that I absolutely love.

For Nintendo platforms, Hidden Mysteries: Titanic probably is your best choice.



Sneaker13 commented on CoroCoro Magazine Reveals Pokémon X & Y Start...:

O my, I was impressed with Chespin, but what the hell did they do to him in his second evolution. I bet the third one will be a ball of an egg. Jeez.

Never like Froakie and don't like his evolution at all. Fennekin's evolution looks kinda alright though.

I will never let Bulbasaur evolve. So unless the third evolution brings some surprises, I will either end up with two Grass Pokemon I don't want to evolve or with Bulbasaur and the firefox.
