Adroitone commented on Japanese Virtual Console list - April 2010:

Wasn't WW7 one of the bigger Neo Geo games (file size wise)? It was one of it's later releases. Man, I love how the fighters are being supported, especially Fatal Fury. Hopefully we can get other genres rolling also (this is coming from a huge fighter fan lol). Neo Geo has so much awesome stuff.

Adroitone commented on Fatal Fury 3: Road to the Final Victory:

Bass, I would definitely get this game man. It's the best in the original Fatal Fury series. I absolutely cannot wait for this game. Since the Neo Geo was announced for the VC, I've been waiting for this game to come out. From FF3 all the way to Garou, it's nothing but fighting heaven.

Adroitone commented on Review: Art of Balance (WiiWare):

@PhoenixRising

Your taste are different. Personally for me, Rubik's is my second favorite WW game behind Swords and Soldiers (and I have a bunch of WW games). Rubik's is a great game, but it's just not something you like, in which is understandable since everyone is not going to like the same thing. For instance, I don't like those games trying to be like movies coming out on the 360/PS3, (and I have both systems).

@Post 20

I agree, those Heavy Rain, Mass Effect 2 and FFXIII reviews are way to high. Especially what I've played of Heavy Rain, it's terrible as a game and only decent as a interactive movie.

Oh.My.God. This is OUTSTANDING news for me. Do you know how long I've been searching for this game? Around a decade and a half. I saw this game in an old EGM magazine in the early 90s and I've wanted it every since

Adroitone commented on OFLC Ratings Promise Street Fighting Action:

Hey everyone, the Street Fighter 2 that's in question is definitely the arcade version. The arcade version of Street Fighter 2 was the only one called Street Fighter 2: Champion Edition. The TG16 and Genesis versions were called Street Fighter 2: "Special" Champion Edition. So rejoice, Capcom is officially supporting VCA!!!!!

Later games used the memory card to get rid of that in the AES versions. I mean you still ran out of credits, but you are able to save to the memory card and start from where you left. Metal Slugs and SS2 does this (I believe Ninja Commando as well). The MVS versions all have credit.

@reploidx

Hey, I agree that Neo Geo moreso than other systems need button mapping, because it's almost impossible to press 2 buttons at the same time in which most of SNK fighters require with any of the controllers Neo Geo support. It is specialized and if you are not interested in that then it's find.

Just to let you know, you would rather have the AES versions instead of the MVS version of Neo Geo games. AES games are the exact same as the MVS games, however, they generally have more features and options than the MVS version. In reality, the Neo Geo CD versions are the ones you want since those had more options and generally more characters and modes than both the AES and MVS versions.

@Betagam7

The compilation discs are not superior in emulation quality. I have the Samurai Shodown and King of Fighters collections on the Wii and they both have little issues (especially sound) that the VC versions don't have. Having said that, I do agree, SNK needs to do one or the other. If they are going to give us collections, please add online play like you promised SNK.

Well, the Neo Geo, more so than any other system other than VCA, needs online play. These are arcade games that lack in single player content because they were made for the arcades. Most of all Neo Geo games have a focus on multiplayer; if people don't have anyone to play with, they will more than likely skip these titles, no matter how great the game is. (How in the world did Samurai Shodown make the top 20 but not Samurai Shodown 2?). I mean it's not hard to do, the technology is already out there (GGPO, Gametap emulator, etc) it's just a matter of if they are willing to do what it takes to get them more money. (Having said that, that would be all up to Nintendo with the online play).

Also, D4 would be wise to listen to the Europeans who are having emulation issues and also give use a way to configure out buttons because most of SNK fighters require to button presses at the same time, not easy to do with the face buttons. (Thankfully, I have the Neo Geo arcade stick :D)

You know Sean, you have a point, it is a zip file, forgot all about that. I can't remember, what was the biggest cart? 700Mb? Well, regardless of anything though, I'm sure with the compression techniques we have now, those games can get below the 40MB limit (assuming Nintendo sticks with that limit).

So Corbie, is it confirmed that D4 is still supporting the VC? I ask because I saw in the forums that either you or someone else (can't remember) said that since the Neo Geo wasn't selling so well, we might not see anymore Neo Geo games

Size is not an issue because the biggest game was (if I remember correctly, around 35MB. Garou, SS5, and Last Blade (especially Last Blade) are below 40MB. So, having said that:

Last Blade 1 and 2 (my favorite 2D fighters of all time)
King of Fighters 99-2000 and 2003
Matrimelee
Rage of the Dragon
Kizuna
Ninja Masters
Double Dragon
Super DodgeBall
Viewpoint
Thrash Rally
Spin Masters
Sengoku 1-3
Shock Trooper
Metal Slug X and 3
Fatal Fury 3, Real Bout 1 and 2, Garou

Blazing Star
Pulstar
Street Hoops

Adroitone commented on Nintendo Download: Monkeys, Musketeers, Cards ...:

Has anyone written Nintendo a email asking them why we haven't got VC games in two weeks. Pointless to complain among each other. We as fans (journalist that needs to actually do their jobs) need to get to the bottom of it.

@timp29

Concerning Tekken, you are right, or at least you were right. After Tekken 5 released, the contract between Sony and Namco came to an end, so now Tekkens are now allowed to be released on other consoles (Tekken 6 BR coming to the 360).

@Corbie

Yeah, I don't think games released during last gen would be avalible on the VCA. However, everything prior to last gen is fair game. The file sizes for arcade games released during that time aren't all that big (you would be surprised just how small Soul Calibur and Tekken Tag Tournament is, among other games like Street Fighter 3 and Marvel vs Capcom). I'm certain emulating the games wouldn't be an issue either. Namco already showed they are releasing games that came out in the 90s with Cyber Sled, I'm sure they are going to go all the way up to the System 12 arcade board with their releases.

@tatemon555

I don't know if you were talking about my list or the list in the article, but for me, my excuse for not putting in TMNT is I never played it lol.

Tekken 3 is the greatest fighting game ever made in my opinion. Great cast of characters, bone crunching moves that you really feel (unlike most other fighters) the greatest OST in any fighting game people (King's sky arena music is by far my favorite), and an outstanding fighting system. God I love that series. :D

Man, y'all just don't know how excited I am for the Arcade to finally come to the VC. It was, by far, my most request thing for the VC. Now that it's here, I will be putting so much money into it it'll be just completely ridiculous. Here is my top 10 list (and I'm certain all of these games have a great chance of coming out):

1. Tekken 3 (one of my top 5 favorite games of all time. File size is very small for the arcade game)
2. Tekken Tag Tournament
3. Tekken 2
4. Virtua Fighter 3
5. Street Fighter Alpha 3
6. Darkstalkers
7. Guerilla Wars
8. Fighting Vipers
9. San Francisco Rush
10. Soul Edge

Adroitone commented on Samurai Shodown II:

For any games on the Neo Geo, instead of the Hori Arcade stick, I would highly suggest getting the Neo Geo arcade stick. The way the buttons are lineup on the Neo Geo stick matches the original Neo Geo layout. Doing moves with the Hori Arcade stick on most Neo Geo fighters are impossible due to the fact that the Neo Geo fighters required a bunch of 2 or 3 button presses at the same time (use Hanzo in SS1 and SS2, then you will understand).

Adroitone commented on Samurai Shodown II:

The 360 version does not look better, matter of fact, if you don't turn off the terrible filter, it looks far worst. Also, since they didn't take the time to update the sprites in the game, it cannot look better than what it looks like on the VC since the VC is pretty much prefect.

Adroitone commented on Castlevania II: Simon's Quest:

I don't think any of the games that's able to come to the VC contain blood in them. I don't even think the series contains blood in it regardless. Having said that, if it did contain blood, it's minimum.

You can beat SMW in 1 day, if it took you a week then it must have been challenging for you :D.

Special Stages, however, definitely were not easy.

The game is moderately hard. It'll just take a little getting use to control wise. Super Mario RPG is played from the same isometric view.

Adroitone commented on F-Zero X:

There's no story, and it's not as hard as GX. There is death race which is a great mode though. I believe it's as good as GX which means it's one of the greatest racers of all time. :D

Adroitone commented on The Legend of the Mystical Ninja:

@swordplay

If you have someone else to play with, it'll definitely make the game easier. You see, the thing is, you have to spend a bunch of time collecting money to buy armor, other equipment and more health so the side scrolling levels would be much easier. It's an outstanding game though, outstanding. It just requires a little patience

That is EXACTLY the question I've been asking since S-E said such BS. It doesn't make any sense whatsoever. Of course they would make more money

Adroitone commented on EU VC Update - Samurai Shodown II:

Whoa whoa whoa, neither Last Blade or Garou are button masher fighters. Last Blade does have a good heavy combo focus if you set your character to Speed instead of Power. Speed makes your characters weaker, but makes it easier to chain combos together, plus, your super move in Speed is pretty much like (is it X-ism, the custom combos) in Street Fighter Alpha. Power makes your characters stronger with a focus on single strikes, with minimum combos.

The super moves in Garou are much easier to do than in Last Blade, but Last Blade has a little more focus on defense since it has guard impacts just like Soul Calibur.

Adroitone commented on EU VC Update - Samurai Shodown II:

Corbie, hmmmm, Garou over Last Blade huh. Well, can't go wrong with either, but I like Last Blade over Garou. Both are the best 2D fighters of all time though so hey, like I said, it's pretty much a toss up :D

Have you played Matrimelee and Rage of the Dragon?

Adroitone commented on EU VC Update - Samurai Shodown II:

Demon, SNK has always had a little balancing issues, but when it comes down to fighting, SNK always win hands down. I see you didn't like SS2 :O, it's not my favorite in the series since SS4 takes the cake, but, nothing beats Last Blade 1 and 2, Garou, Real Bout series, King of Fighters 96 and above, Rage of the Dragon, and Matrimelee.

Adroitone commented on Art of Fighting 2:

If you are comparing it to the first Street Fighter 2, it depends on preferences. I really like the special bar, the hard hitting moves, and the bigger sprites in AoF1 and AoF2
