Taya commented on Art Academy for Wii U Pushed Back to 2015 in N...:

This is disappointing. I like the 3DS one but I'd rather play on the Gamepad/TV. Sketchpad only has pastels and coloured pencils which are a little difficult to get used to. I'd rather have paints and lessons and everything that the 3DS one has.



Taya commented on Harvest Moon 2:

Weird choice of banner image. That's from the Gamecube game A Wonderful Life.



Taya commented on Review: Pure Chess (Wii U eShop):

I bought this and I agree that it's a great single player game. I'm pretty bad at chess so I'm enjoying playing against the computer. I likely won't bother with online.



Taya commented on Waiting For Wii U To Drop In Price? Not Going ...:

The Wii U doesn't need a price cut. It's $100 cheaper than the PS4 ($200 cheaper than the XBone), has free online, supports used games, complete backwards compatibility with the Wii (including wii-ware and virtual console titles), no DRM, and some cool features like miiverse and netflix etc. It also has (or will have) great games that are guaranteed not to appear on other systems.

The Wii U just needs more games. I know a lot of people who are getting a Wii U, but they don't want one right now because there's not a lot of games for it. Personally I already have six retail Wii U games, plus a bunch of downloadable ones.



Taya commented on Don't Expect Retro Games to Play in New Animal...:

In the Gamecube AC, I enjoyed collecting the NES games more than actually playing them. And on April Fools Day Tortimor gives you a fake NES game. It was a good trick.

They were a nice addition but we don't need them now.



Taya commented on Talking Point: Censoring Boingy Bits, Bums and...:

I don't like censorship, but it would be nice if there was less nudity/near-nudity in video games altogether. It turns women away from video games and makes men look like horny 13-year-olds.

I always hear the argument that "sex sells" but did you know you can get porn for free from the internet instead of buying a $50 game featuring cleavage? It's true! There's money in your pocket.



Taya commented on Rayman Creator Michel Ancel "Wasn't Shocked" B...:

While I'm still interested in the game, it's no longer a must-buy. There will be plenty of games to choose from in September, but in February there wasn't anything else to compete for my money. Maybe I will buy it someday when it's cheap.



Taya commented on Review: Harvest Moon (3DS eShop / Game Boy Color):

The SNES version of Harvest Moon is really great for how simple it is. This one is a little too simple, but it's still fun and I'm going to get it when it comes out here, even though I own the original black-and-white Gameboy game.

For those of you who haven't played a Harvest Moon game in many years, Animal Parade for the Wii and A New Beginning for the 3DS are both really great. The bests in the series for sure.



Taya commented on Talking Point: The Download or Disc Dilemma:

I have VC, Wiiware, 3DSware etc games and I also have quite a few games on Steam, however I will always choose the physical game if the option exists. There's nothing wrong with digital only games but having the real disc feels so much more real. Plus I'll always be a collector at heart.

If eshop games were significantly cheaper than physical games I might consider them, but not if they're the same price.



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

I don't plan to boycott the game, but if there are other games that I want coming out in September that compete for my money, I may not get it. However if it was being released in February, I'd get it without thought. There isn't much out for the Wii U right now and I really want a new game. It's too bad Rayman isn't going to benefit from people like me who are itching to spend their money on a game for their new console.



Taya commented on Aonuma: "We'll See" About Zelda Voice Acting:

I almost always prefer no voice acting in games because of a) voice acting that doesn't represent how real people talk and b) I can read faster than they can speak so I either cut them short or wait for them to finish. There have been exceptions though and I think sometimes voice acting adds to the experience.

I don't want Link to ever be voice acted because they'll never get it just right. In fact, the silly noises that he makes in Skyward Sword when he touches lava or falls off a cliff are too much as it is. Wind Waker Link is the closest they've gotten to a good Link voice.



Taya commented on You're Not Alone in Finding the First Zelda So...:

The first Zelda isn't really that hard, but yes you will get a few Game Overs unless you are really experienced with the game. I've finished it a couple of times.

Zelda II is much much more difficult.



Taya commented on These Are The 10 NES Ambassador Games in Japan:

I'm happy with these games. I was considering buying Zelda II on the VC so this saves me the money and the trouble.

And for those complaining, Nintendo doesn't owe you anything. You run the risk of a price drop whenever you buy anything expensive. I admit I was very surprised when the price dropped so quickly but I was willing to buy it for full price when I did so why would I be less satisfied when the price dropped? And we get 20 free games when they don't have to give us anything.



Taya commented on Review: Let's Create! Pottery (DSiWare):

I also disagree with this review. I have had no problems with the controls and I never ever felt lost or confused about what I was supposed to do. It's incredibly straightforward. I guess it's just not for everyone.
