I was thinking of writing something like this. You did a great job.
There are a couple of games like this I can think off the top of my head. I have a friend who hates how different the characters look in quality in Fire Emblem: Awakening because they have essentially four different versions of the same characters. They have the cutscenes, the dialogue, the map sprites and the battle…
haha not at all, J! a tasteful bio is cool! This is what I have for my own articles:
I loved Guillermo del Toro’s reboot of SPLASH. Makes me wish the original were R rated too. Lots of brilliant stuff. The gender swap in the main characters that eliminated the issue of sexual mechanics. The tie in with The Creature from the Black Lagoon. Octavia Spencer in the John Candy role. Makes me wonder if there…
I would definitely class it as “bittersweet”. And very accurate. I moved away in my late teens, and it really captured that feeling of going “home” again.
Something I love about the SNES Classic is that, even though 21 games is fewer than I would like, I do think they picked the best of the SNES library for the most part. Personally, the only game in the lineup that I wish was replaced with something better is Kirby’s Dream Course.
I’ll pick up one later today :) But I already played it on Virtual Console. I don’t know what was the issue was back then. Probably too expensive translations for several European languages. We got Secret of Mana but no Final Fantasy. Not until 7. The only redeeming thing was that we got Terranigma that skipped US.
Chrono Trigger didn’t release on SNES or PSX in Europe. DS and mobile are the only ports available. So it couln’t sell here in first place. Mario RPG also skipped Europe but this is included.
Dad sounds like kind of a dick.
What the hell are you talking about? Nintendo uses most of those properties on a regular basis. Kirby had a new game on 3DS last year, another one in 2014, and one on Wii U in 2015. He had at least a couple games on Wii, and probably even more on DS. Kirby gets new games all the time. You’re just not paying attention.
Bioware should be commended for making a post release effort and generally giving a shit about making their product better. If blame is to be passed around, aim your sights on EA who I guarantee wanted this game out ASAP regardless of the state its in.
If you can’t enjoy a game because someone other than you can’t stream it....thats sad really. Just enjoy the game! Streaming this game or not changes literally nothing about the game. This is fake outrage the internet has made popular.
I would like to remind everyone that this is not censorship and that Playtonic as a private business has the right to express itself as they see fit. If they do not wish to include voice work by a controversial figure in their video game that is well within their right. Jon’s free speech was not violated in any way…
A Zelda game is never late. Nor is it early. It arrives precisely when it means to.
.. wha? Nintendo follows the same basic release cycle - Wii came out in 2006, Wii U in 2012. The issue was that the Wii U bombed so Nintendo had to push something else out, but even then it’s still four years.
I feel like you are attempting a troll post because what you said really makes no sense.
Snipper Clips and Fast Racing RMX have also gotten love from the critics. But frankly, none of it matters. Zelda was bound to drown out any other major launch release, except for maybe a hypothetical Pokemon game that wasn’t just a port. It’s smart that they’ve spaced stuff out. Splatoon 2's free beta is at the end of…
