How is Has Been Heroes? How much do you like it? I'm somehow curios about this game.

I have a bit of a love hate relationship with it lol. It's insanely hard and unfair on one hand, but I can't put it down.. If you like rougelikes and/or Plants vs Zombies, I'd say give it a try.

Hmm here's the thing: this would be my first roguelike game, so I don't know if I would like it or not. Difficulty is not an issue for me, I tend to enjoy harder games more. And it's pretty addictive, huh? I think I could enjoy that. Thanks!

So Motion Control was just a fever afterall?

in Gaming Discussion 4 days ago

Motion control can be great - but it needs to be utilized in the right way, for the right type of games. If we're talking - motion control being overemphasized and forced upon EVERYTHING, like the Wii, then yes - I think that was just a fad. But the tech certainly isn't going away. It'll just be more like rumble I think - more in the background as a way to supplement the controls of certain...

What's your Least Favorite Nintendo Home Console?

in Nintendo Discussion 6 days ago

Wii U. It doesn't do anything particularly interesting other than being the first HD Nintendo console (yay..) and having a large clunky touchscreen controller that feels like a cheap Fischer Price toy or something. Didn't care for the cumbersome Miiverse thing and how long it took to just start up your game. The handheld streaming play was cool but the fact that you couldn't step like 20 feet...

Why Trials of Mana Remake didnt make any noise, unlike FF7 Remake.

in Gaming Discussion on 03 June 2020

Well, the Mana Series simply never had anything close to the clout or impact on the gaming scene that FF has had. And this is coming from a huge Secret of Mana fan - while the remake is solid on most fronts, it also felt a bit lukewarm and standard to me. I'll certainly be playing more of it but it's also not exactly knocking my socks off. ...

About Me: I have been burning hours of my life gaming since my early youth, when I picked up the NES controller and played Super Mario Bros for the first time. From then on, I knew gaming would be part of my life forever.

I recently graduated with a BA in History at Illinois State University. I have also recently earned a Masters Degree in Animation in Chicago. I am interested in creative writing and have also taken up gaming journalism - sufficiently combining two of my favorite hobbies. At the moment I'm writing for newgamenetwork.com, thegamer.com, as well as right here at Vgchartz (Stephen LaGioia)!
