  • DraugenCP posted a message in the forum topic Metacritic's Game of the Year is Super Smash Bros. WiiU.. on the System Wars board

    It's a great game. SSB and Mario Kart 8 are both amazing continuations of their respective series. Especially SSBU is both a great game and a major leap forward for the series. The latter is a great a...

    Quality Engineering - some anecdotal evidence

    Even though I have done most of my gaming on a PC since the spring of 2010, I still turn to consoles once in a while to play some games I would otherwise be missing out on (Mario Kart) or I would have...

  • DraugenCP posted a message in the forum topic Are games better at telling stories?. on the Games Discussion board

    No.The heavier a game focuses on storytelling, the less it focuses on gameplay. Because gameplay essentially reduces the story to the mundane or even 'pauses' the storytelling until the next (interac...

  • DraugenCP posted a message in the forum topic Disaster: Day of Crisis. on the Nintendo Discussion board

    It was a fun, cheesy game with occasional frustrating parts. Really though, at the end of the day it was more like a quirky, proof-of-concept indie game than a high-quality production. I had fun play...

  • DraugenCP posted a message in the forum topic What was the best racer this year?. on the System Wars board

    Apples and oranges, but I'll just say that MK8 deserves any award it can get because it's a masterful entry into the series and worth getting a WiiU for.

    I tend to forget about it as I experience the superior controls. And when I don't, I plug in my controller.

    Light characters are mostly useful for hectic races with lots of item hits, because acceleration quickly after being hit can be the key to success in those races. This is what makes them a great choic...

  • DraugenCP posted a message in the forum topic I'm not a Mario guy, but. on the Nintendo Discussion board

    It isn't that it was bad, just that it didn't live up to the ultra-high standards of Mario platformers. I guess people had a problem with the setting being a bit too monotonous when compared to Super...

  • DraugenCP posted a message in the forum topic Why has it become cool to like MK: Double Dash?. on the Nintendo Discussion board

    Double Dash was alright, still quite playable, but it was by no means the series' high-water mark. People seem to forget it had very little content going for it. No custom cups, no ability to choose s...

  • DraugenCP posted a message in the forum topic What are your thoughts on Mario Kart 8?. on the Nintendo Discussion board

    I played all day yesterday, and I have to say It might be the best MK so far. The anti-gravity, air, and underwater racing certainly aren't gimmicks, as they influence the game dramatically. This can ...

    Got it yesterday, had a day off, so I played all day. Getting the 3-star rating was pretty easy, as you just have to win 60 points in the GP this time around. Your rating doesn't go down from falling ...
