Should Nintendo blame or thank Ubisoft?

Ubisoft always seem to support Nintendo when they release new hardware, but I'm not sure if that's a good or a bad thing. For the original Wii it was good, Rayman Raving Rabbids and Red Steel showed the potential of the new motion controls and were interesting new franchises, that gained a lot of au...

Re: 2017/1/31: Sega Master System: Phantasy Star

In all honesty, Phantasy Star is the game that first made me hate RPGs. I find those dungeons in which every wall looks the same too tedious. (And I once thought all RPGs were like that, so it took me some time to discover they were actually RPGs that aren't so tedious :)).

Super Mario Odyssey looks wrong

I saw the trailer for Super Mario Odyssey for the upcoming Nintendo Switch a while ago. The graphics and gameplay look good, but does anyone else feels that it looks wrong (or at least weird )? For me, it doesn't look like a good fit: Mario in a world of 'normal' humans... (And it reminds too much o...

Re: 2017/2/3: Super Nintendo: Earthworm Jim, Earthworm Jim 2

I'd always rate Earthworm Jim 1 higher than Earthworm Jim 2. Part 2 has to many repetitive levels (like that horrible sand stage) and is way too easy.

BTW have you compared the bonus stage in Earthworm Jim 2 with the bonus stage in Sega's Flicky? They are practical similar.

Re: Which Games Was the VGC Unfair Towards?

I always wondered if there was a thread like this. To those talking about Sonic CD, I think the critic is right. It is a mediocre sonic game with poor level design, and what I think is a dumb time travel gimmick. Even the end screen when you beat a level sounds dumb. "Sonic made a good future ...

Re: Games you didn't think you'd like but did?

I discovered I actually enjoy Hidden Object games with the very addictive Gardenscapes for the Nintendo 3DS and the decent Mystery Case Files: Malgrave for the Wii!

Re: Nintendo Switch: Boom or Bust?

I love Nintendo and I'm sort of enthusiastic for the Switch. However, they are very few games I'm looking forward to. From the launch games only The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Bomberman R seem interesting to me. Then we got Sonic Mania (not a launch games & also available for ...

Re: 2017/1/22: Wii U: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero

If you like this game, I think you really also should give a try to Shantae and the Pirate's Curse (available as download for the Wii U or as download and retail for the 3DS). That game also offers classic platformer, nice retro graphics and fantastisc music.

Re: Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero (Wii U)

I played the prequel Shantae and the Pirates Curse on Nintendo 3DS (also available as retail!) and I thought that was a pretty good platformer too! (Not 'the best 2D platormer since Sonic the Hedgehog', because that is of course Shovel Knight :), but pretty good nonetheless). http://www.risingstarga...
