My 3DS XL isn't even a year old and Nintendo expects me to buy another one? I'm not even sure I like the one I have now. Honestly, if the market for 3DS games shifts to favor this new model, I'd rather just sell my current XL and put the money towards something more stable.

"But I have to say that the element of chance is not an issue if you solve the puzzle. Players who "solve" every situation are able to succeed again and again since if you discover the patterns which rule every chapter."
Is he implying that there's a pattern or rule to the infamous Russian Roulette sequence that makes it consistently beatable? If so, he probably could have just told people what it was and avoided this whole thing, no?
Is this the same thing that was teased during the press conference with the really bad "here are some clips of totally real people actually honest-to-god scared"? Because that didn't really paint a good picture for me... When I think "Silent Hill", I don't think "scare cam" and "jump spooks".

No one's mentioned Indigo Prophecy yet? I would have assumed that would be the go-to answer. Fastest spiraling out of control in any game I know of.
Yep, first thing that came to mind. That game really lost me towards the end. I kept thinking back to the brilliant opening, then wondering how it became so ridiculous =|
No, the game didn't make me dislike it due to the end, though I agree it went awkwardly. Not only for it being a bit too crazy, but also abrupt with character relationships and what have you.
Just a bit.
Bioshock Infinite spoilers incoming:
The end of Bioshock Infinite was just complete garbage to me. The asylum level with the patients in George Washington masks took most of the fun out of the combat in favor of a shitty attempt at aping Silent Hill. The "boss fight" with Songbird was a poorly controlled tower defense game, and then the only thing that kept me going, Elizabeth, became a boring, emotionless deus ex machine/exposition engine for absolutely no reason.
She goes from being your companion exploring the story with you to "Okay, asshole, let me spend the next hour answering all the questions the audience never asked and be as monotonous as I possibly can whilst doing so." I almost thought she made a last-minute heel-turn before realizing it was just poor, poor writing.
If I feel like I absolutely have to be filled in, I'll just watch a Let's Play of the previous game(s), or just wiki the important stuff. I fully enjoyed Assassin's Creed II without ever touching the first game.
There are franchises where I feel kind of stuck though. I've been wanting to go through the Shadow Hearts series for a long time. I hunted down each game new and started with the first one, but it's so archaic in design that I just couldn't get through it, and there're no good LPs for it either. In those cases, I just have to skip on and hope for the best.
I've also learned through the years that saying "The GB crew needs to X" is the kiss of death.
Some of the best QLs have been requests, including the recent Barbie game, so I'm not really seeing the parable here. Regardless, I never said "The GB crew needs" to do anything. I'm just saying this game looks like good QL material. I'm not going to pressure anyone into paying $30 for this just to produce a funny video.
Can we get a Quick Look of this game? No one's reporting on it, no one's reviewing it. It's like the industry is trying their hardest to pretend it doesn't exist, which makes me think it's a prime target for a Quick Look.
Everything I've seen about it looks ridiculous, and even the backstory of how it got released in the West is kind of shady. They made it eshop only in America specifically to make sure the only people who would know it exists are people who followed the franchise in Japan.
After Jeff's tasteful critique of Project Diva, I think this deserves a shot.
