    Makes me glad I stuck to my guns and stayed away from neogaf.

    Maybe I'll get an account at this one once they start accepting new members. Never did get a gaf account.

    Thanks for a cool article and a good breakdown of how the results ended up the way they did. Some of the other articles going around are trying to make it seem like the results aren't legit.
    I can understand the confusion, but it really is pretty simple. Beat the other team to win, scrimmages don't count.

    Nice review, I am looking forward to picking this up. I hope they update the Salmon Run mode as often as the rest of the content. Switch needs a good Co-op game.

    I'm still looking forward to this game. Since the Switch announcement Arms has been my most anticipated game, and my time with the Testpunch has only amplified my desires.
    With the conversation leaning on Arms' lack of content, I'm wondering what else would people like to see?
    Coming off of long games like Zelda, FF 15, and Ni-oh, I feel like the content looks about right. It's no Arc Systems fighter, but what is?
    Another point is that when was the last time we had a 3D fighter that actually leveraged its 3D space? Virtual On (love that game)?
    It's rare that we get a new IP with such a charismatic cast with this kind of ambitious design.
    Maybe ambition and charisma aren't to be lauded. Hell, maybe I'm just too easy to impress. But after 30 years of gaming I still look for the next big thing, and if SF5 is emblematic of what a modern fighter should be... gimme Arms!

    @mrhumble1 you're getting too hung up on the idea that 5 stars means perfect. It's the reviewer's highest recommendation, not the certification of perfection.
    I bet you'll dig it if you like kart racers.

    I'm surprised Kat came off so negative here.
    The price point is exactly as expected. 200 was never realistic. Of course I would like it lower, but the Switch is exactly what I've been waiting for.
    I came away from the streamed event surprised at the functionality of the controllers, interested in the new IPs, and just plain excited to get one in March.
    My major worry is this: We will be lucky to get Mario this year. Many of the most exciting games seem like they are a ways from being completed. That said, all of that waiting could be completely mitigated by a robust Virtual Console.
    Now I don't buy new systems to play old games, but my time with the NES classic has reminded me how great old games can be.
    The Switch games are likely to be on a trickle, I just hope Nintendo doesn't trickle out the VC games as well.
    Oh and $50 for a new game? All about it

    I've become a fan of your work, and I'm glad you gave this game a chance. I've always felt it was a hidden gem of last gen.
    I love how you can set up units to join in on another unit's attack. It's a mechanic that is unique to the game and is expanded on in the maligned portable sequel.
    I actually like the portable version for its unique unit upgrades and the insanely customizable second tank, which can also be an APC. The smaller maps and trope filled story are annoying, but if you liked this game the second one is really worth a look.

    I think my best gaming deal was in '94 when I bought a Turbo Express and virtually every Hu-Card at that point for $40.00. Sounds awesome right? It was too a certain point.
    I don't know about the rest of you, but I find when faced with limitless options I behind paralyzed. The only game I really played on the go was Air Zonk. I really loved it, the game and the device, but the 45 minute battery life! That was the other major problem. I sold it all off a few months later, and while I would probably be happier knowing it was somewhere in my house when it's dark, I hope it ended up in good hands. Built in auto-fire was pretty great though.

  • Avatar for Folkenhellfang Folkenhellfang 2 years ago

    Maybe it's just the way I play all RPGs, but I finished the first game and never stopped to grind. I did do all the bounties, and that seemed to suffice for both XP and cash. I felt the game was reasonably paced, and beautiful.
    My only real gripe is a pretty serious one in that they don't give you the full mechanics of the game until you reach Mr Drippy's home island. That is what, like 10-15 hours into the game? Once you had control of making the entire party to defend, combat took on a very cool skill based dimension.
    Ahh, just thinking back on it now... Set AI to heal only... AI decides best way to heal is to blow mp on annihilating every enemy before they can even hurt you...
    Yeah, good times. Let's not forget the incredibly awesome special edition that came with the book!
    I'm looking forward to the new game just as much as I did the last one. I just hope it comes with a book as well!Edited 2 times. Last edited December 2015 by Unknown
