Man, this game was so freak'n hard! I mean, that freak'n mine level,

Nope. The mine carts and rocket barrels in Returns and Tropical Freeze are much, much harder.

Are you referring to Stop N Go as the mine level? Go back through the entrance for a shortcut to the end.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Donkey Kong Country (Wii U eShop / Sup...:

If it had Super Mario World quality graphics, it wouldn't have done so well. Its a good game but the graphics and music are its only stand out features. I think it was Super Play who said something like "you have many games like this already but here's one pretty graphics". They also pointed out that Nintendo didn't trust Rare with Mario and gave them a character who hasn't had a new game in ten years to play with instead.



Bass_X0 commented on Namco Museum:

Five games for £5.39 isn't bad. Even those games are now simple and dated.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd October (North America):

I'm also interested in Shantae, as I love that franchise, but the price is just way too much, no matter how good it is, Shantae games are really short, the most time spent is backtracking to different areas to get items.

Still longer than four NES games.



Bass_X0 commented on Donkey Kong Land 2:

I'll be getting all the Country and Land games. Never played the original Land 2 & 3 games since they're supposed to be very close to the SNES games but I don't mind that now at this cost.



Bass_X0 commented on Space Invaders: The Original Game:

who the hell would use 800 precious wii points on a classic u can play 4 free on the computer.

The poor saps who have to download each and every VC game just to review it.

LOL This is 800 points! Nintendo has gone crazy if they actually think somebody gonna download this for 800 points!

800 points is the minimum for SNES games regardless of content and quality.



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

to everyone spelling ufouria wrong, its u-f-o-u-r-i-a.

Actually, its U-four-ia.

They should just release "Final Fight One" for GBA on the VC instead.

They'll get to that. Its better for them to release lesser versions of games before they release the better versions of games to catch people double dipping on both. If they released them the other way around, less people will be inclined to download the lesser version after downloading the better version.

(and yes I know Mighty Final Fight and Final Fight One aren't the same game)



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Game & Watch Gallery 3 (3DS eShop / Ga...:

You really think so ? I thought that the GBA one was by far the worst, while G&W G3 was by far the best in form of presentation, unlockables, content etc.

The GBA version was the best. Better graphics, more games, more unlockables, I don't know why you think differently.

Anyway, I'd like to see a new version on 3DS and Wii U which contains all the Game & Watch titles with Wii U / 3DS quality modern graphics and maybe new stages for the old Modern versions.



Bass_X0 commented on Gallery: A Closer Look at the Six New amiibo F...:

Captain Falcon looks the most detailed and coolest. But I won't be getting any of them. I'm just not that kind of gamer. But if they had done something like this during the N64 days, I would been taken in by the hype.



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

Do they NOT realize that SSB's just came out?

Yeah, but its only the 3DS version. True fans are waiting for the Wii U version.

I bought a new Wii, couldn't download any of my old games, emailed Nintendo twice, they didn't respond, spoke to them on the phone, they told me all my old games were lost. Ludicrous Customer 'Service'

What happened to your old Wii? Did you sell it or lose it? They tell you from the start you can't transfer games from one console to another without having both Wiis, I also read some guy sold his Wii then asked the forum how to transfer his Wii games to his new Wii U...



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

U-Four-ia. I downloaded it on Wii so it only costs 99p to download it on Wii U. I do want Mighty Final Fight but for Wii U because its £1 cheaper. No point getting it on 3DS if you have both. I don't know why NES games are more expensive on 3DS than on Wii U.



Bass_X0 commented on Wii U System Update 5.2.0 Brings Folders, New ...:

Next update should have...

Able to use SD card for downloaded games on Wii U, not just WII.

Activity Log like on 3DS.

Able to save images from SD Card, internet and suspended games

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.
