Speaking of reviews, finally made it through World 1 of NSMB2 yesterday. Agree with the NL score 100% so far.

I played through World 1 of NSMB2 and packed the game right back into its GameFly rental packaging and sent it straight back. ;)

You monster. Portal reference aside, the game is pretty much bursting with joy and happiness. How could you bring yourself to return it? D:

Probably for the same reasons you can't say enough nice things about that Jason Rohrer trilogy and I couldn't relegate it to storage on my SD card quickly enough — you liked it, he didn't. :3

@I-U: I know in online multiplayer, if you've created a room for say 3 or 4 people and only 2 show up, you can choose to start the match either with just the people who showed up or with the CPU taking the place of the ones you're missing. i haven't experimented with just fighting against the computer that way yet though, lol.

I see a lot of requests for a pros and cons list. While I personally think that a score is sufficient, anyone who really wants one should voice their opinion in our feedback forum.

Pros and Cons list do nothing but give your readers another excuse to not read your reviews. Nintendo Life was built with writers who actually know how to write and do so in such a way that it actually makes the readers want to read their reviews. The problem with the majority of websites today is things like Pros/Cons sections and to be blatantly honest, a scoring system in itself.

while i agree with you, if people want a 'pros and cons' thing, they have the right to make it a formal request via the Feedback area. as always, whether anything is actually implemented is entirely up to the directors :3

@oninowon: Further experimentation with the 3D in this game has shown me that the more sprites on the screen, the worse the slowdown is for 3D mode. it's okay in 2D, but in 3D sometimes it slows down so much it's unbearable for me.

As for the dialogue, it is hilarious, but in a cheesy way IMO — i can't take it seriously at all. it's very possible that they did it this way intentionally, though, considering the quality voice acting overall, and i'm having fun, so I really don't care :3

I preordered this game and haven't picked it up...cr*p! I hope I can convince the GameStop dude to let me pick up my preorder still.

Same, though, the point of Pre-ordes is that your order is guaranteed. At least that's how it works at other stores.

that's not precisely true — if you don't pick up your preorder within a certain period of time (i'm wanting to say two days?), they have the option of selling that copy of the game to someone else — of course they'll honor what money you've put down on it when you finally show up for it, naturally, but there's no telling if/when they'll have stock available when you do. it's not like they won't sell it to you if they still have it in stock, though.

You know you just said that to a Nintendo Life staff, who was making a joke?

Of course and a funny one at that. But what does that have to do with anything?

Well I just think you should be more considerate. Saying that someone's work is bad directly to them is just inconsiderate. If you don't like this site, then find another!
Anyway, what are you to judge; you review games at WiiWareWave.com yourself!

Look, Chrono_Cross is as welcome to his opinion as anyone else about our reviews here at Nintendo Life — just as we're welcome to our own opinions about anything under the sun. It's not like he goes around harassing our staff (which is absolutely not kosher, of course), and at least he's comfortable expressing how he feels directly to our faces as well as elsewhere on the internet... some people won't even give you that courtesy. There's no need to get nasty over it like that at all just because he also reviews games for another website.

The bottom line is that he and others like him may think their own work is the bees' knees and that they're being as unbiased as possible, but I guarantee you no matter how hard you work to be fair and balanced in your reviewing style, you're still going to get people who disagree with you and think you're lower than dirt for daring to publish whatever review(s) you've done regarding (insert thing here). It's the nature of the beast, and it's okay. So long as someone is giving an honest opinion of what they've played, they're still helping some other guy out there who thinks the same way they do. It's why I love Metacritic and recommend it to everyone — not for the big fat number, but because it puts a gaggle of reviews at my fingertips for damn near any given game out there, and I can easily go down the list and see what other reviewers picked out as faults, handy features, and I can get a much bigger picture regarding whether I'll like a game than from just one review.

Welcome back, Mac. Figures it's be an Atlus game to do it :3

I just fired it up a little bit ago. The voice acting is pretty good (dialogue is kinda cheesy though haha), and the game looks gorgeous in 3D, but I had to turn the 3D off for battles because the framerate drops significantly. Thankfully it looks just as good in 2D as 3D. the battle system is going to take some getting used to, but it's been fun so far :3

The only grinding I did in this game was when I hadn't seen a character in a long time and I wanted to get them to the same level as everyone else. It could be because I did a lot of exploring trying to find and finish all the side quests as I went, or maybe I did more grinding than I thought, but because I liked this game so much I didn't even realize I WAS grinding.

it was probably the latter, especially if you turned grinding into a game like i did :3 but yeah, to finish that one final sidequest in particular (i'm assuming you know the one i'm talking about...?) I had to do quite a bit of grinding because i kept getting my butt handed to me by Mr. V... that could also have been my stubbornness to not use the princess, though (idk, i think the guide i was using said to use her for that fight, but i just didn't want to level her up and then go beat the game with my favorite team afterward, it kinda felt cheap for me to do so). the great thing after that sidequest, though, was that the endgame was a freakin' breeze >:3
