I love everything Nintendo, but also enjoy gaming on other consoles. My first game was Mega Man 3, and my all time favorite is MH4U. Also a HUGE fan of DKC and Fire Emblem. I own a Wii U, PS4, X1, 3DS and Vita. And of course, a Gamecube and Wii.

PS4: Witcher 3
Wii U: Splatoon Global TestFire
3DS: Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate..... Puzzles & Dragons Z

@get2sammyb
After playing Splatoon today (had issues for first hour so they extended the Testfire an extra hour, in which it worked flawlessly just like the first 3 Testfires) I can honestly say I LOVE Splatoon. It's awesome fun, it really is. I don't like the gyro so I switched to analog and it was so much better that way. Don't get me wrong, it's funner with gyro, but I'm competitive so I prefer more precision. The game will not launch with Team Battles (unfortunately- it's being patched in with some other modes like The Tower which is the one I am most excited for), but the Turf War with randoms is addictive as games come. Not sure if you own a Wii U but if you do I HIGHLY recommend buying this game. I lost interest in shooters a while back, but my interest has been rekindled, greatly. I haven't enjoyed a shooter like this since GoldenEye. That's saying something.

Sorry if I intruded there but it didn't seem anyone answered your question of how the game was.

JaxonH commented on Evidence of Batman: Arkham PS4 Remaster Appears:

I already own Arkham City and Origins for Wii U.

The one game I'm interested in, that I haven't played, is Asylum. So yes, I could be persuaded to buy this if the price is right ($40 seals the deal)

@Mrskinner
No, I agree. The camera actually does seem a little close. I was having trouble performing actions like snuffing out the candles because I couldn't see- big old Geralt was in the way ;) which only added to the clunkiness of the controls.

I'm sure I'll get used to it with practice

JaxonH commented on Talking Point: Are You Enjoying The Witcher 3 ...:

Combat does seem clunky compared to games like Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate or Bayonetta 2- Games I have sunk countless hours into and have precision response times for every action.

But that's about the only gripe I can muster. And I think you adjust to it with a little time.

I put in 8 hours on the Vita, and I really really really love this game (hated the handheld version but I loved the game). But there's so much else out and I am like 37 games behind now, and I fear this may be one of those classics that I just never get around to playing because I never have the time.

First time I've seen the entire membership almost unanimously concure.

Yes, this is how it's done, and how it should always be done. Grrr, the rest of the industry is a bunch of cheap ********. Is a game manual too much too ask?

JaxonH commented on Feature: How Does The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Loo...:

The problem with favoring higher graphical fidelity and 30fps (which is perfect in theory) is that if the framerate suffers even just 5 fps you're going to notice. And it starts to actually affect the playability of the game. It's fine, iin theory, but most of the time the games don't end up locked at 30, which is why I'd prefer a lower res and 60 fps. That way if it takes a dip you're still in the 45-55 range.

@sinalefa Ya its expensive buying games day one. I'm trying to limit only the best of the best- for example I only own Halo Master Chief, Sunset Overdrive, Forza Horizon 2 and Ori and the Blind Forest on X1. That's it- own everything and cherry pick the best the industry has to offer.

@WARDIE
Idk why, but so many gamers now relish seeing another console do poorly. I see people mock and ridicule the Wii U and Vita all the time- not so much Vita anymore, as if it boosts their ego to point out they own a "successful" console. I can't help but wonder why. But one thing is a constant- those that find joy in seeing a console fail, almost always have never played that console or discovered the joy it's library offers.

I'm interested, seeing as I was such a fan of Splinter Cell Blacklist. I know they're not exactly the same, but there are some similarities and coming from Ubisoft all the same. I'm expecting good things for this game.

JaxonH commented on April 2015 NPD: PS4 Slumps to Shock Defeat:

I love games, in general, regardless of which piece of plastic they run on. And I want to see all 3 platforms do well.

So when I see MS beat Sony in US, or Sony beat MS globally, or Nintendo topped Japanese charts, or whatever, it means nothing to me. I don't care who sells more, what I care about is that all 3 of them do well in their own right. And even then, as long as I have good games coming, I say it is what it is.

JaxonH commented on Metal Gear Solid May End Up Being a Mobile Fra...:

Certain companies can and will thrive in mobile. But Konami does not make many good games anymore. And franchises like MGS are NOT the type to appeal to the mobile crowd.

Sure, you CAN succeed with mobile, but the likelihood is far greater that they will bankrupt themselves.

@DualWielding
Eh, they did it on the N64 with 5-10 man teams, they can do it now. But there's still a difference between those who have the talent to make top tier games, and those who don't.

@get2sammyb
Honestly, the setting actually interests me MUCH more than Unity (Unity seemed so generic in every way, Paris just isnt that exciting I guess, at least, for a video game anyways). And I've always liked AC. I think my cynicism comes from the fact we have seen SO much AC these past few years. Announce a new one, 6 months later it releases. 6 months later announce a new one, 6 months later it releases, and on and on. Then we had Liberation on PS3 on top of the annualized release. Idk, I think I just burned out.

If this franchise was spaced out a few years like Far Cry is, I think we'd notice more substantial changes with each release and I think it would be a lot more exciting. It's not a bad game, but even your favorite meal grows tiresome if you eat it every day.

It's not bad, but even if it were to have no issues, run perfectly and completely measure up to expectations, even then it's still the same old formula that's beyond getting old.

And we all know that no Ubisoft game releases without issues, especially Assassin's Creed.

JaxonH commented on Assassin's Creed Syndicate Slums It on PS4 fro...:

Ok let's be honest here- it's Assassin's Creed. It's gonna be good at the very least. But likewise, it's Assassin's Creed, the same old game we've been playing year in year out. And it doesn't look like much has changed. Well, they have seemed to Arkhamize it a little more- hallucinogenic darts that turn enemies against themselves, grappling hook and wires... ya.

I promised myself I was done pre ordering these games two Assassin's Creeds ago. Unity was definitely the last straw. I don't care how good it looks, runs, plays, or reviews for that matter. I'll pick it up when it's $20. That's my new rule for annualized franchises.

@Cowboysfan-22
Ya, I remember playing Primal Carnage on the N64 (think it was N64?) along with Turok. Primal Carnage was a lot of fun, at least it was when I was a kid, and I was excited to see a new one on the way. Not sure what happened to it though.

This looks interesting, but yes, a little rough. Not bad for an indie though.

JaxonH commented on Review: Tropico 5 (PlayStation 4):

I've never played a game like this. But it seems like it could be some fun times.

Maybe I'll scoop this up when a sale comes along. Definitely seems to be a good game, only question is, is it for me?

JaxonH commented on Game of the Month: April 2015:

Shovel Knight is so good. Glad my fellow gamers behind the Playstation brand get to play it too, as well as any in the Xbox Club.

It's just one of those games that deserves to be played by everyone.

This game looks amazing! Wow. Rarely am I impressed that much with indie titles, but this one seems to nail it!

Ya, I'll bite. Just tell me the release date that's all I need to know. May 12th? Got it.

JaxonH commented on The Next Assassin's Creed Is Being Revealed in...:

After the year that was 2014, I've decided to hold off on pre-ordering these megabudget annualized franchises, games like Assassin's Creed and Call of Duty (even though I have been a fan of both for many years). The fact Unity came broken didn't help matters (or the dozen other half broken multiplats we saw last year).

But ya, when it comes to this one and Black Ops 3, I'm definitely waiting this time. Other major multiplats I'll judge on an individual basis.

I will never buy another PS4 theme again. What a gyp!

I was getting tired of my PS Now theme, and decided to take a browse on the store to see what else they had to offer. Ended up picking out five of my favorite abstract themes. Download them, and each and everyone of them was garbage!

Either they had no music playing, AT ALL, or the resolution was blurry, or both. Never again. I'll just stick with the free ones they shell out. Which is a shame because I spend at least $10 a month on themes on my 3DS.

So many memories of Tony Hawk on PS2 and Gamecube. Those were the good ol days there. But I slowly lost interest- I think the motion control version on Wii was my last. I had actually stopped playing before that but motion control skating was enough to pull me back in for one last go.

They'd have to really impressed me to get me to buy this game. But maybe they will, who knows...
