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.

JaxonH commented on Review: Volume (PS4):

I'm trying to get a refund.

I bought the game, then went to play the other day only to see an error while downloading. Deleted, re-downloaded, same thing. I tried this 3 more times, same thing every time.

Finally I contacted Sony and requested my money back and to wipe it from my account. I had issues with Trials Fusion season pass disappearing on 3 occasions between content releases, and 3 times had to contact Sony and talk for 2 hours explaining how I couldn't access my content without paying for another season pass.

I'm just tired of crap like this happening. On no other console have I ever had issues like this- especially not repeated issues, I should add.

I told them from now on if I buy a game, and for whatever reason can't play what I paid for, I don't want it. Just give me my money back.

JaxonH commented on Puck Off! NHL 16 Scores PS4 Bundle in Canada:

Only sports games I ever liked were NBA Jam (Genesis), Mutant League Football (platform unknown to me), NHL 06 (PS2), Tiger Woods 2010, Wii Sports Resort and Mario Tennis (Wii), and Mario Golf World Tour (3DS).

I had a lot of fun with NHL 06, but it's been years since I've played a hockey video game. I don't even play hockey (or golf) but I always love hockey and golf video games.

@RenanKJ
I buy a TON of games, and like to get some money's worth out of them. I usually get tired of the same game for extended periods (except Fire Emblem, Splatoon and Monster Hunter- those I have literally binged on for 36 straight hours).

So I played a little LBX this morning, jumping into Splatoon here shortly. Probably fire up some Fire Emblem tonight.

Tomorrow I wanna spend some time with Rocket Leage though- perhaps even this afternoon. And if there's time I'll squeeze in the other two this weekend.

JaxonH commented on Feature: The Best PS4 Games of the Year So Far:

@Boerewors
"Witcher 3, Fallout 4, Persona 5 and Xenoblade Chronicles X"

Let's not forget Legend of Legacy, Stella Glow, Final Fantasy Explorers and Tales of Zesteria on the RPG front, all landing before year's end.

And don't forget we got Final Fantasy Type 0, and X, and Episode Duscae (even though Type 0 is mediocre), not to mention Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and Dark Souls 2, Etrian Odyssey 2 Fafnir Knight and Xenoblade Chronicles. All off the cusp of the excellent Dragon Age Inquisition last holiday season.

And the RPG streak will continue into next year with Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright, Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest, Final Fantasy XV, SMT x Fire Emblem, Bravely Second, and maybe, IF we're lucky, Star Ocean 5, Kingdom Hearts 3 and Monster Hunter X.

The RPG has established itself as a genre in high demand this generation.

That's what's up.

@get2sammyb
My brother told me it was really good back a few years ago when he played it. I usually trust his judgement as the guru of good games, so...

Do keep in mind both he and I are huge Back to the Future fans- we grew up with the movies. I'm sure that affected his opinion, at least to some extent.

JaxonH commented on How Does Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Look on ...:

@Archways24
When it's done well it's far from a gimmick- in fact after having played several games with absolutely superb gyro integration (hybrid controls with analog- large movements still done with right analog but for just aiming it's so much faster and more accurate to tweak with gyro) I'm convinced it's the way of the future. Revelations opened the door to this viewpoint for me, and Splatoon was the game that really wrote it in stone.

But Revelations 2 on Vita- it's nearly unplayable the gyro is so horrendous

JaxonH commented on How Does Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Look on ...:

@Archways24
Ok so it does have gyro.

However, I have to say either the Vita has a horrible gyroscope or they just didn't implement good gyro controls. It's rigid and stiff and stutters the frame rate if you try to move the reticule in more than one direction at once (like diagnally). What's worse, it seems to lose its location easily so that the reticule doesn't always move 1:1 with your wrist movement.

Ah well, I can play with analogs I guess, but I'm really shocked at how horrible these gyro controls are when the 3DS nailed it with Revelations. I think it might just be that the 3DS has a much higher quality gyroscope in it, seeing as it's a major part of the systems features, whereas it seems to be more of an afterthought with the Vita.

On the bright side, it's good to see great games doing well in Japan. And Splatoon and Fire Emblem Fates are both doing extremely well. Albeit they're on Nintendo playforms but a great game is a great game (can tell I'm a fan of Splatoon, just check the avatar).

All around increases in hardware too, which is nice too see

JaxonH commented on PS4 Exclusive Everybody's Gone to the Rapture ...:

I like the game, it's a neat experience. I don't think it's worthy of chart-topping, but hey good for them.

@xMEADx
I really don't see any evidence of the Witcher 3 post-release DLC being held back. Like, none at all. To say it "should have been included at launch" is to say the launch content was lacking these items.

I couldn't disagree more.

Just because something is released as DLC does not always mean it was held back, cut out, or should have been included at launch.

@rjejr
GameStop is selling refurbished OG models and XL's for $80 and $100 respectively (after $40 mail in rebate). They have almost every LE to date too- Fire Emblem, Smash, Pokemon, Pikachu, Yoshi, SMB2, Dream Team, Animal Crossing, Persona Q...

Granted you'd want to snatch a CPP too if you planned on any MH4U. But that's a good deal any way you slice it.

@rjejr
I should say likewise, lot of your comments I mean to reply to but don't, for whatever reason.

Ya man I love that Fire Emblem. There's 3 stories in the original FE on GBA. I finished Lynn's story, and am on Chapter 26 of Eliwood's story. Actually like next to final chapter for his story, and it just got REALLY good. The difficulty shot through the roof a few chapters ago and I'm loving the seriously tough maps. Glad I bought both the PRIMA guide and Nintendo Power guide for the game- cause it really takes both their info combined to really be prepared.

You ever dive into Awakening or no...

No love for Giana Sisters? Twisted Dreams is releasing physically on Wii U (and possibly other platforms?) according to Target's website, so I was halfway expecting a physical release with any new game in the series. Guess not.

JaxonH commented on Review: Everybody's Gone to the Rapture (PS4):

JaxonH is all about expanding gaming horizons, always willing to try new genres.

I'm playing this now, and....

I kinda like it. It's not much "game" in the traditional sense, but it is entertaining. The little light shows me where to go, although I did have a problem visiting the church before I was supposed to, thankfully I crossed back and tried again later which triggered the necessary event to move on.

All in all, glad I bought the game and tried something new.

JaxonH commented on BioWare Community Bands Together to Bring Frie...:

We did this on NintendoLife Amiibo Alert Line Chat. One of our Nintendo Life members couldn't afford a Wii U, so about 12 of us pitched in secretly and raised $400 in less than 8 hours. Bought him the Splatoon Wii U bundle, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Super Smash Bros and Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze.

I posted pics of the Splatoon Wii U bundle and games in the Line chat and was like "Hey TeeJay take a look at these..." He responds "Oh nice, are those yours?" I said "No, those are YOURS".

No response for 15 minutes, meanwhile everyone is posting confetti and congratulations stickers ... Finally he speaks and mutters a few words- "Guys, I can't even, I can't even" lol.

Now we call him "I can't even TeeJay"

JaxonH commented on EA Doesn't Think You'd Play a Star Wars Battle...:

Simply put, why bother making a single player campaign when they can invest 30% of the effort and resources, churn out a game where the entertainment value props itself upon people playing together to make the experience as opposed to them actually developing it, and then cite "statistical analysis" to gamers who are actually upset about being shortchanged.

Besides, so much money and advertising will be mainlined into this entry it could be a Jar Jar Binks Dance Competition and it wouldn't make much of a difference. People are going to buy it so in the end, they get away with it.

Problem is, once a company knows they can get away with doing less, does anyone honestly think they're going to choose to do more out of their own voluntary free will?

@Of_Folsense
Yes, but as it's been explained to me this will have even less content available for those who choose to play alone than past entries offered. But not just that, times have changed. Single player games of yesteryear are now packed with online modes on the side to expand the audience. Even when people don't want an additional multiplayer mode they still forcefully tack them on in nearly every game. So why doesn't it work the other way around? Here we have a historically multiplayer focused game- so why is it they aren't forcefully tacking on a single player campaign regardless of whether we wanted or not? People are practically begging them to give us a single player campaign and they still refuse.

@ShogunRok
Exactly.

Although some of these Japanese RPG's need to tone down the incredible grindy gameplay. I love me some JRPG's but sometimes it's take 2 steps- random battle, take 2 more steps- random battle, ughhh.

So smooth over and round a few corners but other than that, yes, I love Japanese games. Some of them anyways. The good ones

@hYdeks @themcnoisy
I'd say that's a half decent top ten personally. Splatoon is one of the best games I've played in a long time, Fire Emblem, well, let's just say Awakening is one of my favorites of all time, if not THE favorite game of all time, and from what I hear Fates is even better, then you've got Minecraft, Mario Kart and Animal Crossing (the REAL Animal Crossing, not the Home Designer), which are all fabulous games, and Rhythm Heaven is a great rhythm game (if you're into the genre). Just ask @Sinalefa- he swears up and down by that franchise.

JaxonH commented on Community: Final Fantasy VII Voted Push Square...:

Not a bad list. Not a great list.

I really can't argue with the Final Fantasy, but dear goodness Zelda Link to the Past is a better game than Ocarina, heck even Link Between Worlds on 3DS is better. Although I do recognize its significance.

The MGS, ok. But as for Sonic.... No. Sonic 2 or 3, yes. But the first one just wasn't is good.

The Last of Us, definitely not. It was a really good game and I'd even go so far as to say it was the pinnacle of its genre, but greatest game of all time? I can think of 50 games better than TLoU. Heck it's not even the greatest game of last generation, much less all time.

Uncharted 2, that I haven't played but I trust my brothers judgement, and he swears it's one of the best games he's ever played- and he's a diehard multi console owner just like me, so I'll agree with that one.

But if I had my own list, you can believe that it'd be Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Fire Emblem Awakening and DKC Tropical Freeze sitting squarely at the top, undisputed

@kyleforrester87
I think @rjejr was being sarcastic with the Sonic 06, seeing as it's renowned as the all time worst Sonic game of all time

@Cyber-BLP--
I have all of those lol...

But I want this on 3DS because I heard it will in fact be in stereoscopic 3D, and that's something I've been beggin for since the 3DS launched in 2011. I just want my mega man games in 3D!

I am tempted to pick this up on PS4 though, but I'm not sure why because I have them in high definition on Wii U

JaxonH commented on Soapbox: Why I Love Strategy Guides:

@Arckadius I bought the Zelda treasure chest box set and love those guides. And they prove VERY valuable when playing a Zelda game and get stuck.

I just bought the Fire Emblem guide for the original FE on GBA. The IGN guide stops after Chapter 23 in Eliwood's story, and while there are other websites they are all bits and pieces. I wanted a complete walkthrough without having 4 different tabs open in my iPad browser- and, for the collectibility as well.

I do use guides from time to time after all- Zelda, Bayonetta 2, Wonderful 101, DKC Tropical Freeze, Dragon Age Inquisition, Hyrule Warriors... they come in handy.

I like the digital PRIMA guides though. So convenient,mso easy to use on an iPad.

JaxonH commented on Rumour: Mighty No. 9 May Say Nein to 2015 Release:

You know what my problem with MN9 is?

He went to Kickstarter for a game he's not even really involved with much. He's outsourced everything and only provides feedback for major design choices and when publicity dictates the need.

That's my problem. This isn't the "game he's always been wanting to make". This is just another one of his mediocre games there to put a few bucks in his pocket.

When he pitched the game, he made it sound like this was something HE really had a passion for. And I'm sorry, but observing his level of involvement tells me he really doesn't give a ****

JaxonH commented on Turn-Based Battles Could Be Scrapped for PS4's...:

@kyleforrester87
Ya, it's just that every game they make now uses real time battle system. Every single major FF game. They've completely abandoned turn base for their heavy hitters.

People were demanding a remake because they enjoyed the game the way it was. I don't understand why they can't let people at least have turn based in the remake. It's not like all their other games aren't real time. For once it would be nice to have a flashy new game that still had the turn based system. I think a lot of people, inclung myself, thought that's what we were getting with this, similar to Final Fantasy X.

But yes, we'll have the PC port. Hopefully before they release this game :/

JaxonH commented on Turn-Based Battles Could Be Scrapped for PS4's...:

@kyleforrester87
Precisely.

If it's not going to be the same game then why call it a remake in the first place. A remake simply brings an old game into the modern age visually, fixes glitches and maybe even, in extreme cases, alter time consuming quests to streamline.

But if you're going to take a game and change everything about it that made it that game in the first place, that's not a remake.

That's a reimagining.
