GBA/DS games that have NO place on my 55" HD tv.
No more VC love.

Too bad. Releasing GBA and DS games is Nintendo's idea of showing the VC love. And the handheld titles look far better on a large screen HD TV than NES and SNES games do. I can't even play Gradius on my big HD TV because the screen keeps going dark.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 20th August (Europe):

Master of Disguise? Why, Nintendo? Why do you bring back one of your worst DS games? Why do you not pretend it doesn't exist?

Seriously...Master of Disguise? That is the worst Wario game ever. Why can't they just give us Wario Land: Shake It instead??

Because who would download Master of Disguise if Shake It was available? Nobody! This way they're going to make some money out of putting Master of Disguise on the eshop. Besides, it exists so on it goes regardless of quality. I won't download it though.

What's the benefit of not releasing anything on the 3DS virtual console for so long?

Same reason they don't release new VC games on Wii, Probably no longer profitable for them to do so. Or the 3DS is doing well without VC games while the Wii U needs them as an additional incentive.



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

I saw Dragon Ball Z and thought of the past DS games that could appear as VC on Wii U. Or the French releases of the SNES games.

wow. people were complaining last week that there were no VC games, and now they're still complaining despite us getting two VC games.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Final Fight One (Wii U eShop / GBA):

There aren't any VC games being released on 3DS by anyone now for whatever reason. Companies can now only release their old games from any console on Wii U. It doesn't matter to me if handheld games appear on Wii U. Game Pad is better than 3DS' screen.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd July (Europe):

Can't really see the point in Yoshi Touch & Go getting a new release. It was only ever a glorified tech demo,

And thats why its cheaper than other DS games. I got it free a few weeks ago after downloading Yoshi's Woolly World for £35.

And no game should be restricted from release due to simplicity. Just release it at a lower price.



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

>GBA on Wii U
That's the wrong platform but they refuse to admit it.

Well the 3DS isn't getting any new VC games from anybody right now. I think Nintendo has banned every other company from submitting their VC games for release on 3DS.



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

the bad (if completely predictable) news is the lack of multiplayer.

I don;'t think any game on Virtual Console should be marked down for lack of multiplayer. Thats a fault of Nintendo, not the game or its developer.

I played a lot of "Street Fighter Alpha 3" on the PS1. I had totally forgotten it had come out on the GBA as well! Was it as good as the PS1 version?

Nope. It really wasn't. SSFIIT Revival is a better port than GBA Alpha 3.

They should instead make street fighter alpha 3 upper for gba available on the wii u eshop, that´s a way better game, it´s much more polished in my opinion and resembles far better the original source material.

Its really not. The sprites and backgrounds are very small and under-detailed. Even in comparison to SSFIIT Revival.

]I have Street Fighter II: Turbo on my Virtual Console, so no thank you.

Its not really the same though is it?



Bass_X0 commented on Interview: Senran Kagura Producer Kenichirō T...:

I will never understand how a game about underage children being objectified is even allowed on nintendolife. Fictional or not underage children barely wearing clothes and being objectfied is disgusting. It should not even be a thing. Sadly it is. This world is getting worse and worse.

Still a Nintendo game. And they're hardly children with chests that mature.

NintendoLife raise the bar- don't lower it....

NintendoLife just reports the news. If games like Senran Kagura make themselves news worthy then NintendoLife has to report it.



Bass_X0 commented on Interview: Senran Kagura Producer Kenichirō T...:

Is there a game like this but with hyper-sexualized hot guys instead? I never see games like that, it's always got women. Where are the fanservicey games for us hetero ladies*?

It tends to be single geeky males that buy this kind of stuff. Women can be single and geeky who get off on hot men, but the big money is selling towards single men.



Bass_X0 commented on Interview: Senran Kagura Producer Kenichirō T...:

Because it seems that most/ all of the time, if the "sex appeal" card is played,

Whatever entertainment medium you can think of, Japan uses sex appeal to sell it. Not all the time of course. But its easy to find examples. Senran Kagura is actually quite common of Japanese "otaku" culture.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising (Wii...:

I think it's probably going to happen, but probably not for a long while, looking at other Intelligent Systems VC games. I have no clue whatsoever as to why, since the game is clearly localized, licensed, ported and all that, but then again NoA is not afflicted by logic, so there is that.

Its probably sitting on Nintendo of America's long list of games just waiting to be released. Games get submitted to Nintendo of their respective region, and Nintendo of that region decides on the release schedule. Its not particularly a fair schedule either.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 16th July (Europe):

SSF2 turbo Revival is far from my favourite SF2 games,

I like it. It has large sprites, Super Moves, more special and normal moves for some characters, new backgrounds for some characters and Akuma as a playable character. Just avoid activating that glitch! I had the GBA cart back in the day and don't remember seeing that glitch often. Its really not a game killer unlike what other people say about it.

Of course, the arcade version of SSFIIT and HD Remix are the best SFII games overall. But as far as the best SNES and GBA SFII games go, its equal to SNES SSFII, I'd say.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 16th July (Europe):

How many Street Fighter 2's does the Virtual Console need!

All of them. Don't need the TurboGrafx and Genesis versions though. But give us Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Super Puzzle Fighter II on GBA.

Why on EARTH would you put a Street Fighter game on something that can't be played 2 player?

Because it is still fun as a one player game of any version. I've never played any handheld game against a second person in my life, only trading between Pokémon cartridges that I owned. Only being able to play single player has never stopped me from buying a game I want.



Bass_X0 commented on Poll: What Do You Want From Nintendo's NX Plat...:

I'd like a hybrid. Call it the Wii DS. Only plays cartridges away from home, but also plays discs when at home. Depending on the game, it would only be able to play 3DS quality games downloaded games away from home and also Wii U quality games while at home.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (Wii U eS...:

The last time nintendolife reviewed this it was given a 5/10...number systems are stupid.

I agree. It is stupid how Nintendo Life has different scores for some games. When I come to Nintendo Life, I don't come to find out an individual reviewer's opinion, I come to find out the site's opinion. So when the site says the game is both good and also bad, thats just confusing. Which reviewer should you believe if you should buy it or not?

Scores out of five were better. There's not much difference between 3/5 and 4/5.



Bass_X0 commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Strategy Needs to be Glo...:

They don't seem to really get that the western market's as big as it is or that it likes certain things,

Actually, Japanese companies in general don't get that westerners want more Japanese games to be translated. I'd rather play a Japanese themed game thats good than a typical American themed game thats bad.

"You don't tell us what you'd like, we'll tell you what you'd like!"

Who would ask for a plumber in a mushroom kingdom fighting a giant turtle today if Mario never existed?



Bass_X0 commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Strategy Needs to be Glo...:

How about the company changes its name to something more americanised when dealing with countries outside of Japan while you're at it? Surely American fans are put off from buying a console from a country that doesn't sound english?

Personally, Nintendo is Nintendo and Nntendo is Japanese.



Bass_X0 commented on Gunpei Yokoi Discusses The Struggle To Make Th...:

If things are too realistic, there's no room for your imagination, and the reality of those faces you thought were beautiful will be revealed.

Why is realism okay for movies and tv shows since its actual people being filmed, but not for videogames?



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 9th July (Europe):

Any week with a Mega Man game is a good week

On the contrary, I am beginning to see why the whole Mega Man series died in the first place. The Battle Network games are barely different to each other. I'll still download it.

How many Mega PokeMan games did they make?

There are six Battle Network games on GBA, four of which come on two cartridges so ten. Then there is the spin-off Battle Chip Challenge on GBA. A port of the fifth game on DS and Network Transmission on GameCube which I haven't played. How similar is Network Transmission to the GBA games other than featuring the same characters?
