I first had the mute on, and I couldn't figure out what the problem was. Was it too fast? Was it the style of the cut-scenes? Or am I just getting too old? Then I turned on the sound and watched it again. OOoohh... IKR! I first had the mute on, and I couldn’t figure out what the problem was. Was it too fast? Was it the style of the cut-scenes?

Comment on Shadow of the Eternals Apparently Still Alive by OG75 http://www.nintendojo.com/news/shadow-of-the-eternals-apparently-still-alive#comment-36684 OG75 Fri, 27 May 2016 22:19:56 +0000 http://www.nintendojo.com/?p=156966#comment-36684 Eternal Darkness sunk its hooks into me like no other. Played through it 3 times when it came out and many times since. To this day, it remains the only game to inspire me to write a "thank you" letter to its creators. I know it may not have aged too well, but it's too late: nostalgia will protect it in my mind for an "eternity". I too won't get my hopes up, but would welcome its sequel should it ever become available. Eternal Darkness sunk its hooks into me like no other.

But I'll be ecstatic if this game makes it out (and comes to a platform I have or am willing to have). I will not get my hopes up yet again.

Comment on New Mighty No. 9 Trailer Irking Fans and Creators Alike by penduin http://www.nintendojo.com/news/new-mighty-no-9-trailer-irking-fans-and-creators-alike#comment-36679 penduin Fri, 27 May 2016 15:36:51 +0000 http://www.nintendojo.com/?p=157031#comment-36679 I've been pretty effective at cutting video advertising out of my life, and this is a great reminder of why. On mute, the gameplay footage itself seems good. I do worry that everything we see has so much dashing and combo and Gunvolt stuff in it rather than more classical Mega Man gameplay, but I'm hoping this is what it looks like when a speedrunner takes to the game, and other play styles will be effective too.

That said, I just don't see it happening. Too much time has seemed to past, and the Kickstarter's lack of success leads me to believe the interest just isn't there. Which is a total shame.

Say what you will about Dennis Dyack, Eternal Darkness was an absolutely amazing game. I'd do anything to see another like it. Yeah, I’m totally with you.
