Asaki commented on Video: Hanging Out With Arino In The Japanese ...:

I really hope this comes out over here, even if it's only an eShop title, but I have doubts =( I've never seen the show, but the first game was just awesome.

Too bad piracy killed any chances of it selling.

Asaki commented on Soapbox: A Case For The Defence: Castlevania 64:

@ToxieDogg Yeah, I never understood why peoples' main gripe with the game was the camera. Every other over-the-shoulder N64 game was exactly the same, and you never hear people saying "Mario 64 was the worst game."
@SuperMarioBros3 I wouldn't say Simon's Quest was "half-baked in [its] execution", but the confusing translation of the US version certainly didn't do it any favors. There's an English re-translation out there (not Redaction) that's really awesome, and adds a few optional extras like a real-time day/night cycle (no pausing to read those famous quotes) and save slots.

Asaki commented on Weirdness: You Can Fix Your NES 72-Pin Cartrid...:

@DaveGX Blowing in your cartridges doesn't remove the dust (maybe hairs and debris, though), it's the moisture from your breath that makes the game work. Water is a conductor, so it temporarily improves the connection...of course, if you keep doing this, all that moisture is going to corrode the contacts, and just make the problem much worse.

This is really old news, but I'm glad it's getting more exposure.
I tried this a while back on what I thought was a completely dead NES, and it worked like new!
Also, I shouldn't have to say this, but clean out all your cartridges with alcohol and q-tips (or an actual cleaning kit, if you have one), and never blow in them.

I don't care, just bring them overseas already =|
Though it seems like it would be a no-brainer to bring the 3D SMS games to Virtual Console...I mean they're already in 3D, you wouldn't have to put much effort into it.

@Mytoemytoe Awesome. I thought the hero mode in Skyward Sword sounded like fun, but I haven't tried it yet.
Also, I don't want Zelda to be more "hardcore", but WW was probably the easiest game in the series; I didn't die once, and I think I only used one, maybe two fairies.

Asaki commented on Nintendo's Kensuke Tanabe Wants To Make Tingle...:

Unfortunately they already missed their chance to boost his reputation.
I also thought Tingle was just really creepy and annoying, but then I played Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland, and I totally "get" him, we're cool now. Too bad it never got released in the States...if people would just open their minds and give it a try, I'm sure they'd be swayed.
