Didn't you mean Saturn?

No. The Saturn is the Dreamcast's 32-bit predecessor. The console that came before the Dreamcast.



Bass_X0 commented on ​Vote Now and Decide Which Classic Mega Man ...:

And what about the 3DS? Why doesn't the 3DS get anything besides the NES games and obscure GB ones? Give the 3DS some love...

Are there any more NES, GB or GBC Mega Man games to port to the 3DS Virtual Console? Nintendo doesn't allow GBA and SNES games to be ported to 3DS Virtual Console. I suppose there is the crappy Sega Game Gear version though.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Donkey Kong 64 (Wii U eShop / Nintendo...:

Yes. And its a perfect emulation as far as I can see. All levels intact. The only difference is that you rescue an N64 coin instead of Pauline the second time.

This game is a long, slow and at times painful chore.

I'm 12 hours into the game. Its not feeling like a long, slow or painful chore to me. I haven't really gone far into Gloomy Galleon yet. From memory, it can be a long, slow and painful chore, but only the last three worlds of the game. Its quite a good and fun game until then. And with save states, it won't feel as slow or painful.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Yoshi Touch & Go (DS):

Not a fan. Its just average to me though I've not played it in years. And Corbie, there are numerous worse games than this. Yes, it is repetitive, I agree with that. But at least its playable and nice to look at. If this is 1/10 for you then you've clearly not seen actual 1/10 games on the DS.



Bass_X0 commented on Donkey Kong 64:

In Cranky's Laboratory is the smartest Ape you've ever seen
but Diddy blows his experiments to smithereens!
There is doom and gloom
when things go boom
in Cranky's Lab!



Bass_X0 commented on Video: Mario Kart DS Skids Onto Wii U Virtual ...:

Worth the 4.50 I paid for it. So was WarioWare Touched. Donkey Kong 64 is worth 9 and I had already downloaded Super Mario 64 on Wii. If there wasn't the deal on, I wouldn't have gotten Mario Kart DS. Just not worth it. I already own it on cartridge.

I will hesitate to download any more DS games though. Most aren't worth 9 and you can get them cheaper on cartridge. The addition of save states and suspended gameplay are very welcome. They make all the difference. I just think they're a little too expensive. Should have been 7.50 IMO.

A delayed game may not necessarily be good; if being delayed was equal to quality then Duke Nukem Forever would be the most awesome game of all time. And bad games can be patched to make them good. Not always, but they can be.



Bass_X0 commented on Street Fighter II: The World Warrior:

Because people will download it still. Five years later and we're still waiting for the arcade version. Indeed, we're even still waiting for Nintendo to allow arcade games to be released on the Wii U.

There are some differences that are unique to the original Street Fighter II. I still haven't downloaded this but I'm considering it. On Wii U of course.



Bass_X0 commented on Donkey Kong: Original Edition:

Sorry, the price is too high. £4.49 for four screens isn't worth it, even if it does have one extra screen than what it usually does.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 26th March (North America):

So, has nintendo ever been interviewed on virtual console releases? I would love to know the process and why the huge gaps in time between releases in different regions...

I think its because Nintendo of America doesn't care what Nintendo of Europe releases and vice versa. I would say that Nintendo of America and Nintendo and Europe have access to a large list of games available (with a few exclusives) to release but each country pick games independently.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 26th March (Europe):

@whodatninja Doesn't matter. Metroid Zero Mission is a different, superior, experience to the NES game. Its like saying you don't want Super Metroid because you already have the NES game. The three games are all worth downloading if you're a fan.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Super Street Fighter II: Turbo Revival...:

I'm a pretty good player so I had to purposely lose a fight before reaching Bison so the game wouldn't crash on me!

I have to do the same in HD Remix as I'm just no good against Akuma. I only managed to beat him once and that was just for the achievement. And that took about thirty attempts.

Them butchering some of the classic backgrounds was one thing (Ryu's, Ken's, Chun Li's, Guile's!)

I wouldn't call being given new backgrounds to be a butcher. The new ones are decent enough, only let down by their only appearance being on GBA (except Chun-Li's Alpha 2 stage).



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Sky Kid (Wii U eShop / NES):

So is this game good, average or poor? NintendoLife says its all three. Which reviewer should I trust to have made an accurate judgement of the game's quality?



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Metroid: Zero Mission (Wii U eShop / G...:


Because they want 3DS owners to also own a Wii U.

Do you still unlock the original Metroid as a bonus?

I don't think they would remove it. If it bothered them that much, they wouldn't sell Zero Mission at all. Besides, I think NES Metroid is going to have all the sales it will get by now.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 12th March (Europe):

Nothing for me this week. (I already got Metroid NES)

Metroid Zero Mission is different enough to worth downloading even if you do already own NES Metroid. Its not the same experience.

Does Zero mission still contain the original Metroid as bonus content? Or did they edit that out to not cannibalize their own sales?

They've not altered a game so far (other than not being able to use link-up).
