unrandomsam commented on Nintendo's First Smartphone Title Could Launch...:

I have no interest whatsoever in what people consider smartphone games.

It has to be said however that the quality of the ports in e.g the current Humble PC & Android Bundle 12 is far better than the equivalents on the 3DS where they exist. (Titan Attacks particularly but VVVVVV as well).



unrandomsam commented on Video: Nintendo's Four Step Stage Design Is Wh...:

That strategy doesn't even apply to 3D World. (The special worlds require stuff like the backflip / spin jump / long jump and there is no practice for those in the easier levels).

Maybe they potentially could be but putting a cat suit in that level just spoils it.

The best difficulty curve is still Super Mario Bros 3. (Doesn't waste any of the game).



unrandomsam commented on UK Retailer GAME Opens Marketplace to Sell Gam...:

I always buy from anywhere else other than Game given the option. (Even rather pay slightly more than give them anything).

Only time I would buy from them is as a last resort. (I got my Smash Wii U code from them because went out of stock about 5mins before I was going to order it - literally went to make a cup of tea and when I got back it was out of stock).



unrandomsam commented on Live: Watch Wil Wheaton and Nintendo Show Off ...:

@MasterGraveheart The I am not really for #gamergate (Other than thinking the main people are much more intelligent and capable of producing a coherent argument). The other side I am 100% against. (Maybe that makes me for but I don't think it does).

Going back to Baldwin he is good in Firefly so probably should be in this which should be the only consideration.



unrandomsam commented on Weirdness: The Mail on Sunday Still Thinks We'...:

@Mega719 That can be interpreted differently. (I would certainly include the golden of (Mainly vector) arcade games as a generation most people wouldn't and exclude the pong and Atari 2600 generations). It probably is the 4th generation of EA style tactics working.



unrandomsam commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Highlights Nintendo's Strengt...:

Not sure Nintendo always have done that (The extended period of time thing) Zelda I play once and then the Master Quest about 6-12 months later and then that is it.

Anything with collectables I only play once (Because I dislike that part so much).



unrandomsam commented on Review: Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. (3DS):

@JaxonH I don't understand the timing when it comes to the EU. Same time as Splatoon, the MK8 DLC and the rest of what you have had Feb/March. Dunno what I will do because I do prefer Wii U games to 3DS ones. (For Wii U most of the time I think it is worth it - The opposite applies to full price 3DS games.)



unrandomsam commented on Life of Pixel Developer Highlights Sales Figur...:

This is light years better than most stuff by Curve Digital (In that it works properly and doesn't drop frames at least the PC release).

It is possible if it well reviewed on console Steam sales will pick up. (I know the famous ones became known about when they were XBLA exclusives and then went on to actually make the money once they were on PC).
