Upddated flash for online

Original year of release on main screen for VC games like on 3DS.



Bass_X0 commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

And by definition if you have DLC that adds content to a game and you have one copy with the DLC and one without then a copy is incomplete because one has less content, making the experience incomplete. I don't think that IxC was implying that MK8 is an incomplete game not worth $60 but that in 10 years retro gamers who buy it for the first time won't be able to have the same experience we did.

No. The original without the DLC is the original. The DLC is additional. In ten years time, gamers playing the original MK8 will be having the same experience we are currently having.

By the way, I can't access the super secret courses and other hidden stuff on Super Mario World these days because Nintendo doesn't allow cheat devices to be used. I'm not having the experience I had back in the 90s. Is Super Mario World on the Virtual Console incomplete now?




Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo 64x64: F1 World Grand Prix:

I bought this trying to get my dad into videogames at the time. It didn't work. I wasn't a fan of F1 racing either but I played it anyway. It was okay but I had better racing games on the N64.



Bass_X0 commented on Game & Watch Gallery 3:

I downloaded this yesterday and I still hope the GBA version comes as well because I would download that too. I also want a new final Game & Watch Gallery game with every single G&W game in including modern versions which some of the previous Gallery games lacked.



Bass_X0 commented on Video: See the B Dasher Tear it Up in This Mar...:

Personally, I don't want retro courses to appear twice as a retro course if there are still ones from the same game that have yet to be a retro course. Quality of the courses don't matter.

There is only Wario Stadium from Mario Kart 64 left to be a retro course. Once they do that one, then any Mario Kart 64 course is open again to become a retro course in a new game. But preferably, the MK64 retro courses from Mario Kart DS should be used simply because Mario Kart DS is the oldest.

Here are the numbers of courses from each game I would like to see:
SNES = 1 + 1
N64 = 4 + 0
GBA = 1 + 1
GCN = 2 + 2
DS = 3 + 1
WII = 2 + 2
3DS = 3 + 1
The number on the left being the courses already in MK8. The number on the right being how many should be added to make up to a maximum of four each, but with only two for the SNES and GBA games.

Be interesting to find out what tracks are planned, if all retro or maybe a new track in the mix.

We've seen a screenshot of a Excitebike themed course. And an F-Zero course, thats likely a new one, not a retro one.

delfino square would be awesome, as would ngc baby park.

Delfino Square returned for Wii and Baby Park returned for DS So they shouldn't be here as well.



Bass_X0 commented on B Dasher is Speeding Onto The Legend of Zelda ...:

You can always spot the 64-era racers because they sport the pipes.

Thats me. I always use it with regular wheels. Doesn't matter what is better or gives more advantage, I like the original Mario Kart karts.

hope they port over more good classic tracks like Wario's Pinball, or N64 Bowser's Castle

They have both been as retro tracks already so no. Those that have not been done as retro tracks already should come first and when all of a game's tracks have been done, they should go back and redo the earliest retro tracks from that game. Mario Kart 64 only has Wario's Stadium left to do. When they do that one, they should really go back redo the MK64 tracks that appeared as retro courses on Mario Kart DS before going onto the next oldest.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Wild Guns (Wii Virtual Console / Super...:

I wasn't a fan and the simple reason was that I didn't have the three hands necessary to play this game. Only having two hands, I wasn't able to aim, shoot, jump and move simultaneously like the game wanted me to.



Bass_X0 commented on Immediate DLC Reinforcements Arriving Soon On ...:

I just cannot justify spending $64.99 + taxes for this game,

You don't have to buy every last piece of dlc. You shouldn't be expected to. The choice is there for you to pick and choose which you desire and which you do not. There's no point in paying for dlc if you're not going to use it.



Bass_X0 commented on Immediate DLC Reinforcements Arriving Soon On ...:

DLC is fine. If the DLC appeals to me, I'll download it. If not, I wouldn't have cared if it was in the free in the first place. Its okay to have a choice. My actual biggest complaint about DLC is that there isn't enough of it. I would quite happily pay for packs 3 and 4 for Mario Kart 8.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Mega Man Xtreme 2 (3DS eShop / Game Bo...:

Plus, I still see that they never bothered to change the controls, or even let us tie the dash button to the shoulder buttons like I'm used to from the console versions and prefer, which is even less reason for me to get this.

Nintendo doesn't allow the controls to be changed. Thats not Capcom's fault. And even if they did, dashing in this game is still down + jump.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: SteamWorld: Tower Defense (DSiWare):

the only review i believe is NintendoLife review and when they right they is always right!

Nope. They have unfair bias against certain games that while very enjoyable and fun to play, are severely marked down in score due to being a port.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 11th September (Europe):

i was unable to purchase most of the Wii's VC library because all but a select few were all in 50hz.

I'll bet you didn't have a PAL SNES back in the early nineties then.

I haven't heard 50hz vs. 60hz arguments since Super Play magazine.



Bass_X0 commented on Super Street Fighter II: Turbo Revival Is Drag...:

. Were you on drugs when playing Alpha 3?


Small crappy undetailed sprites. Looks terrible compared to the original. And you will still only be able to play one player here with four attack buttons.


Large detailed sprites. Looks quite like the original, even with some new backgrounds and artwork. Some flaws, yes. But as long as you avoid fighting Akuma, you'll be fine. Its easy to tell which looks better.



Bass_X0 commented on Super Street Fighter II: Turbo Revival Is Drag...:

Really? More street fighter 2

This version is better than the ones on the SNES. Also the Game Boy Advance didn't have any other version of Street Fighter II for it. Also, this is the first and only time Super Street Fighter II Turbo has appeared on a Nintendo console.

Let's hope they fix that game-breaking bug.

Or you could just avoid fulfilling the conditions for activating it like I did. I never knew there was a game-breaking bug in the game until many years later.

No. But I will buy SF Alpha 3 GBA if they release that one

SFA3 might have more content but SSFIIT on GBA is a better game than SFA3 on GBA. GBA SFA3 looks and plays terrible IMO.

Typical Capcom move. We don't even get the arcade version, the freaking ARCADE version.

Does Nintendo allow arcade games to be supported by Wii U Virtual Console? Nope. The original Wii did and I feel Capcom were building up to Street Fighter II if they had continued releasing arcade games for it.

assuming they don't bring the PC Engine port over again or get desperate with the Gameboy version,..

I would expect the Game Boy version to come at some point. Its not as if the 3DS has any other version of Street Fighter II to release on its Virtual Console.

No reason to get this with the full SNES roster already available at the Virtual Console.

The GBA version has one more character and new moves for everyone.

Capcom makes WAY too many re releases of the same title. Funny how it has Super in the name despite being scaled down

It was a slightly enhanced/altered port of Super Street Fighter II Turbo to GBA. Why shouldn't the GBA have had its own version?



Bass_X0 commented on Mario Kart 8 Update, Mercedes Karts and DLC Pr...:

Why in Arceus's name would anybody pre-order DLC.

What exactly is the point of pre-ordering DLC? It's not like it'll sell out.

Because you can have multi-colored Yoshies and Shy Guys right now. Its an incentive for people to give money to Nintendo now for something they're going to buy anyway.



Bass_X0 commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against Re...:

It's exactly the same as pirating music, videos, or anything else the internet has to offer. IT'S BAD.

If its so bad then the authorities would step up their game on closing down the websites that provide us with free entertainment.
