I'm mentally prepared to be disappointed by Advance Wars 3DS

#1GREEN00Posted 11/13/2013 7:42:51 AM
Intelligent Systems' track record the past few years has been abysmal.

Fire Emblem 11, 12, and 13 are the worst games in their series and use a pornographic illustrator for 11+12 and a guy that's just a step away in 13. 13 also introduced atrocious DLC practices.

Paper Mario: Sticker Star is the worst game in its respective series, and is a trainwreck of bad design.

Pushmo and Crashmo are both good, but are both digital only, so won't be available long term. Imagine being unable to play Paper Mario tTYD or Advance Wars DS today because they only received digital versions in their day.

I've put 300+ hours into Advance Wars DS and 150 into DoR, I'm a big fan, and I used to be a big fan of Intelligent Systems, but their current staff and current practices have left me with no faith in them. Here's hoping my pessimism is misplaced.

I'm not sure there was ever one announced.

I'm not exactly "normal." Hope this isn't a problem.
Remember - if no one agrees with you, you're probably wrong.

If you want to be a blockhead that's your own fault.
And if you're so worried about losing your 3DS, that's also your own fault for being too damn clumsy.

Data on SD cards isn't 100% reliable, and once eShop goes down there's no new copies in circulation. Do you want to buy an SD card with Pushmo on it off ebay? Sounds pleasent, right?

To me, you don't care about or respect good games, they're a passing, short term interest in your view.

ITT: DLC is atrocious even if the majority of players embrace it.

Fun fact, all 3ds carts are actually SD cards anyway.

Why should we even bother arguing with you if there's no reason to, this isn't a debate, this is just you sticking your fingers in your ears and going "lalalalalalalala I can't hear you!" If you're not going to listen to valid points and use valid reasons to rebut them, then there's no point to this. You know you can't argue when you have to directly attack your opponent first thing. Gosh. This is pointless.

Nothing to see here guys, just another whiny fanboy

Personally, I thought FE 13 was one of the best games in the series (and one of the best games of that year), so I'm not at all worried for a new Advance Wars.

...Also, I know the art style for FE 11+12 was really meh, but just pointing out that the illustrator was a porno illustrator isn't exactly enough to say it was bad, cause that'd be a little unfair as if all of that type of illustrator is inherently bad. However, the art style was the LEAST of Shadow Dragon's problems.
