Aldebaran commented on Review: Mega Man X3 (Wii U eShop / Super Ninte...:

@shonenjump86 You welcome

I do not know one single person who has liked the PSX OST (excluding the reviewer) if they've listened before the SNES OST. Although I'm sure people with such preferences exist out there, and some might prefer actually the PSX tracks.

BTW the reviewer said: "There's one single weapon that will get most of the upgrades for you, which in itself is disappointing."

Well is the same in Mega Man X2, once you've defeated Wheel Gator you can get most of the armor upgrades and that game was not criticized for that in their respective NL reviews.

Actually that affirmation from the review is not even true in Mega Man X3, unlike in X2 in which you need Wheel Gator's simple weapon to get most of the armor upgrades; in Mega Man X3 you need at least 2 different enemy weapons (Thunnel Rhino's and Volt Catfish) plus the X-buster upgrade in order to get most of the armor parts, let's not mention the enhanced chips.

SNES X3 has better OST than X2, the second X game has overall a nice OST and there are a couple of good tracks like Flame Stag or Bubble Crab. However such tracks are actually few and less energetic than the Zero/X themes, Gravity Beatle, Neon Tiger, Blizzard Buffalo, Volt Cat fish, Blast Hornet or Doppler's Fortress OST's found in the third X game (SNES).

@mjc0961 I do agree Mega Man X6 is by far the worst of the 2d Mega Man X games, altough still quite an enjoyable game, X3 is much better than X6

The worst Mega Man X games are X7 and X8, still X8 is a fun game with nice 2d anime artworks (terrible graphics and lazy level design but nice once you ignored that), plus you can play as Alia and Vile returns from X1 and X3.

But X7 is such a disgrace although for fans it can be passable (it has a couple of nice tracks and stages overall, plus Axel is a nice addition as a hunter)

@shonenjump86 The main difference between the SNES and PSX is the OST and a few FMV cinematics. Try to listen both versions of MMX3 OSTs in youtube and then form an opinion of your own.

Personally (and have been playing the Mega Man X games since childhood) I think Capcom bastardized the music in the PSX version (which was included in the Anniversary Collection) so I prefer the excellent OST found in the SNES version which I rate quite high among the Mega Man X games (and Mega Man X 2d games are usually known for having great OST).

One of the few arranged PSX/PC tracks that are better or equal than their SNES counterparts in my opinion is Blizzard Buffalo stage, the rest are way worst and if you listened the original SNES tracks you probably are going to dislike or hate them.

But again the last two paragraphs are biased due it is my personal preference (and that of the people I've known) so I recommend you to listen to the OST of both games and form an opinion of your own,

I strongly disagree with this review, X3 is a great platformer, the OST is among the best of the MMX games (unlike the bastardized OST found in the PSX version) and the graphics are the C4 chip at its best. Playing as Zero is quite fun even if it is limited to certain areas plus multiple endings based on your actions and some nice extras (chips, golden armor and Z saber). Mega Man X3 for the SNES is truly a great game and does not deserve such an unfair low review based on the personal preferences of the reviewer.

Aldebaran commented on Review: Mystery Case Files: Ravenhearst (3DS):

I would recommend getting them on PC (STEAM?) or playing the games in a Tablet. I love the chapters of Ravenhearts in Mystery Case Files, there are 3 Ravenhearts games so far (a fourth in development I hear) the best one in my opinion is Ravenhearts 2 : Return to Ravenhearts, either way the atmosphere in the Ravensheart saga is absolutely fantastic (despite some gameplay issues).

Aldebaran commented on Review: Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge (Game ...:

I trully love the Banjo Kazooie series and this game is the closest experience you'll get outside the 2 original N64 titles, it is such an amazing game for a handheld worth checking out. I wish Nintendo would purchase back Banjo Kazooie IP and we'll get Banjo 3 for the Wii U as it should have been done (I didn't like Nuts and Bolts).

Aldebaran commented on Review: Sengoku 3 (Wii Virtual Console / Neo Geo):

@sdelfin Thanks it is good to find such an experienced fan of beat em ups who appreciates not only Sengoku 3 but also another great games. I think it was due license issues that Konami was unable to publish SNES/NES games of T.M.N.T in Virtual Console and the license ended in Ubi Soft hands which did a remake of TMNT IV Turtles in Time for XBLA (quite inferior to its original Arcade/SNES version in my opinion). That's too bad as only TMNT 1 for NES arrived to VC and that game it is not a beat em up (unlike the rest) but it is still a quality game overall.

With the online capabilities of this generation of consoles fighting and beat em up genres got a new scope of replay value which was abscent back in the day, as we can see with Final Fight 1 or the Streets of Rage collection on XBLA/PSN it is quite nice to play such games online with another dude. I truly wish SNK would release Sengoku 3 on XBLA/PSN with online capabilites that would definitive increase replay value a lot on a game that was already excellent but perhaps that's dreaming too much.

It is quite nice we can get hidden gems such as Sengoku 3 because back in the day this game never arrived to home consoles unlike Last Blade 2 or Garou MOW which arrived to Dreamcast and later PS2 (Last Blade 2 was on DC only). It gives the opportunity to players to experience great games that were lost in time unfortunately.

I hope D4 will continue to support Wii Virtual Console at least until some other great games are released

@Zodiak13
SInce this game was never released on home consoles it is difficult to get a more "accurate" opinion based on an avarage review.

However some of the few reviews out there (not only in English) based on the Arcade version agreed this game is possible the 2nd best 2D beat em up ever made (surpassed only by Capcom's Dungeons and Dragons Shadow over Mystara) and despite this game is not perfect some of them do gave this a 9/10. So in that sense it is not only my opinion (which may be a little biased due I am a beat em up fan) either way it is always better to play it and judge it by yourself .

Here's a link of a review (in Spanish) which gave the Arcade version a 91 back in 2009 (If you want an English review please check the link I post to hardcore gaming a couple of post above):

I really wish Capcom releases Mega Man X3 (SNES version) for Wii Virtual console. I consider the X3 version of the SNES to be the best in the series (excellent OST) however Capcom bastardized the music in the PC/PSX version of X3 (which was the one included in the MMX collection unfortunately).
