Bass_X0 commented on Pokémon Red, Blue & Yellow Are Coming To The ...:

Not stripped of linking, I imagine they weren't willing to put in the work necessary to make it compatible. But for Pokémon they have. Nothing magical about it. Perhaps now other games previously released will also gain compatibility.



Bass_X0 commented on Pokémon Red, Blue & Yellow Are Coming To The ...:

Nintendo should do a deal - you pay for one and get the other two for half price.

Why don't they at least give us the OPTION of using the SGB colours in Red and Blue?

Because no Game Boy game does that, for whatever reason.



Bass_X0 commented on Contra Advance: The Alien Wars EX:

I know people are quick to say that this is a pointless inferior release of the SNES game but does that make it a bad game? I will agree that other Konami GBA games should have come to the VC before this since more people are likely to download SNES Contra and a different game than GBA Contra. But its out of the way now, at least in Europe.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 6th November (Europe):

I don't even understand the point in asking what I will download first. Why not just ask what I will download and make several options selectable?

The poll is to gauge people's excitement over a particular game, because presumably people will download the game they are most interested in first.

There you go Europe, it looks like they made up for no VC last week.

Have you noticed that they've done this for the past several months now. Some games one week, zero games the next week then back to some games the following week.



Bass_X0 commented on Medabots AX: Metabee & Rokusho:

How is Medabots AX different to the first game? I already downloaded the Metabee version and enjoyed it, so if AX is different, I'll download the Rokusho version.

Okay, so I just watched a video and its nothing like the first game. There doesn't seem to be an RPG section and battles kinda remind me of Smash Bros (if it were on GBA).

What's the point in releasing the GBA port of Contra 3, when the superior and original SNES version already is available in the shop?

Because it exists. I agree that Konami could have released another GBA game instead, but they may be working through their GBA back catalogue, and that includes games like Contra III. Oh well. At least its out of the way now.

What you mean is that the poll should be multi-select where you can select multiple options

You can only download one game first. Its not asking you how many games this week are you downloading.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 29th October (Europe):

Wow... no virtual console at all

Nope. We don't get it every week. But we do usually get two or three VC games every other week. We got some last week and we'll get some next week.



Bass_X0 commented on Video: Ocarina of Time's Kakariko Village Gets...:

I'd rather play NES Zelda with these graphics than the original NES graphics even with NES gameplay. Its true that graphics don't make the game, but amazing games deserve amazing graphics. N64 Zelda is perfectly playable on the N64. But the graphics are now clearly dated. 3DS Zelda OoT and MM looks better but there's still a lot of work that could be done. We don't need to discuss OoT's gameplay because we already know thats amazing.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 22nd October (North America):

Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts? A port of a game that's been available on the e-shope forever now? Unbelievable.

Had to come some time. I'm surprised you didn't get either of the zapper games that Europe got though.

Where are the other GB Castlevania games for the 3DS' Virtual Console library?

Blame Nintendo. They are refusing all publishers from releasing any VC game on the Virtual Console, just because Nintendo themselves have decided to move on away from it.



Bass_X0 commented on Konami Krazy Racers:

Yes. In Europe at least. And I'll be downloading it as soon as I get home on Thursday. I quite enjoyed this game back in the day. A mascot kart racing game in the Mario Kart style, sure; but it came out before Super Circuit so don't call it a Super Circuit clone.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Medabots: Metabee & Rokusho (Wii U eSh...:

Its not perfect but I enjoyed it. Fighting was the biggest obstacle to overcome at first since the game doesn't teach you how to fight nor does it start you off with easy simple battles for you to find out what you're supposed to do. Save states are a must and even the original game manual recommended you keep saving after every battle.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 8th October (North America):

Another week, another lack of 3DS VC support from Nintendo.

Don't expect any next week either. Or any next month. Or any at all for the remainder of the year. The 3DS Virtual Console is over... finished!



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 8th October (Europe):

Its not worth downloading Mario Sports Mix since its cheaper to buy the physical disc. At least the actual VC games have suspend features and save states. So shop smarter.



Bass_X0 commented on Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures is Still Comi...:

Sorry to speak it out loud, but this guy is a relict. He used to be an important influence for YouTubers but there are dozens of similar channels that do a better job at his specialty.

Doesn't matter. I enjoy his videos because of what he does. And if those other similar channels were actually better, they would have gotten their own game too. They don't.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 1st October (North America):

It's already translated in english from the EU release, so what's the holdup??

...VC games don't need translating again. Its already in english from the original cartridge release. Nintendo of America are likely saving it for a specific time, maybe Christmas Eve.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 24th September (Europe):

After a dreadful week of Nintendo news they back it up with a dreadful week of VC releases. The word abandonment rings out!

They just gave us three VC releases last week. I think they've been doing this for a while now. 2 or 3 one week then 0 the next week with 2 or 3 the following week.
