:Rumor Alert: Nintendo Cross?

Postby Makoto » Wed Jul 01, 2015 5:07 am

The footage provided in the video was supposedly a behind closed doors presentation Nintendo had with developers at E3 2015. In which the Nintendo Cross (NX) is suggested to be capable of streaming to any tablet or smartphone. What do viewers here think? Is it real or not? If it does turn out to be real, would you purchase such a device?

Yoshi Woolly World makes me Feel Good

Postby Jonah » Mon Jun 29, 2015 9:54 am

Yoshi Woolly World was released in Europe on Friday and I’m pleased to say that my pre-ordered copy arrived right on time. The game is beautifully designed, plays wonderfully, and puts a smile on my face during every play session. It seems ironic that the game’s developer is called Good-Feel because playing the game makes one feel good.

Image


The game is a traditional Yoshi 2D platformer set in a world of yarn and cloth. As in previous games Yoshi can throw projectiles, gobble up enemies, and flutter jump in order to reach various platforms and objects. The yarn design however adds nice new touches, one of which is Yoshi’s ability to produce balls of yarn instead of the traditional Yoshi egg. The yarn balls can also be used to battle enemies, fill in platforms, collect items, and find hidden treasure. The aim of each level is to complete each stage by reaching the goal roulette. Of course the depth of any stage depends on whether one wants to dash through each stage, or try to find [...]

Why all the fuss about Federation Force?

Postby Jonah » Sat Jun 27, 2015 10:18 am

I am a fan of the Metroid franchise. Yes granted I’m not a Metroid purist but I would consider myself to be a big supporter of the franchise. Whenever I see anything labeled with the tag Metroid, my instant urge is to support the franchise with a purchase. So you can imagine my surprise and curiosity concerning the unveiling of Metroid Prime: Federation Force at this years E3, and personally I think the game sounds fun.

Samus is missing! Where is she?


This title will give you the gamer the chance to jump into a mech suite and work on a co-op basis with fellow gamers in order to defeat enemies and complete various types of missions. To me it sounds both fun and interesting, but unsurprisingly, the reaction to the title has been overwhelmingly negative. Here are some of the reasons as to why the game is being negatively received:

1. It’s not a full-blown AAA Metroid title.
2. The game design looks to bright/colorful to be a Metroid title.
3. Samus isn’t in it
4. Fans are worried th [...]

Yoshi's Woolly World is almost here!

Postby Jonah » Thu Jun 25, 2015 9:36 am


I can't wait to play Yoshi's Woolly World. It almost feels like we've been waiting forever for this game, and finally the launch date is only a few hours away. I pre-ordered the game on Tuesday and my copy was shipped yesterday, so I'm hoping to have it either today or tomorrow. I do feel sorry for our American members who have to wait until October! I can't understand Nintendo of America's reasoning for that. Do they even have a reason? i don't think there's a huge translation issue to deal with here; I think UK and America have similarities in terms of language. I would love to know what American members feel about Yoshi's delay in the Americas. :OO:

I Have a Taste for Retro Gaming

Postby Jonah » Fri Jun 19, 2015 10:03 am

I don't know why but in recent days I have a big urge to enjoy Retro Gaming. In times past I haven't really enjoyed true retro gaming because I've had so many things to play that I can quickly change from one game to another, but since listening to a retro podcast, I've gathered up tips on how to enjoy retro gaming without becoming distracted with it at the same time. So this is what I'm going to do:

1. I'm going to look through my current list of retro titles which I have available via Virtual Console and work out which games I have available to play.
2. Make a separate menu for retro games and add only one game to it until I have either finished the game, or at least until I feel like I've done all that I can do with the game.
3. I will seek to persevere with the game even if it it's difficult and make use of save state functions to make things a little easier (I'm sure purists will hate this idea but like I personally think such functions are great to have and use).
4. I wi [...]

Will it be Boom or Bust for New Sonic Title?

Postby Jonah » Wed Jun 10, 2015 8:36 pm

Yesterday Sega announced 3DS exclusive Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice, sadly however, it appears the internet is treating the announcement with great caution after the original title was considered by many to be a failure. The original Wii U title on Metacritic has an average score of 32% from 28 reviews. The highest review score the Wii U mustered out of 28 reviews was 55%! Nintendo Life labeled it a “a worrying misstep for Sega.” The 3DS version fared a little better, but still ended up being a massive disappointment for reviewers and sonic fans alike.

So I wonder what the future will be like for Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice on 3DS? The absence of a Sonic Wii U title may be positive in that Sega can pour all its resources into one title instead of two. I also think Sonic games in recent times have fared better on handheld consoles anyway, so in my opinion, a handheld exclusive title for 3DS is the best Sonic fans can hope for.

In a recent interview with GameSpot, Sega Producer Omar W [...]
