Bass_X0 commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

How do you forget that you already own a game?

these £9 introductory prices are gonna blow my wallet to pieces.

The rumor is that only the first three will be £9 for the first week, the rest will be £18 from release day.



Bass_X0 commented on Breath of Fire:

Feels very dated to me. I thought the GBA game was dated but this is even worse. Look at those menus! I'm still playing it though.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Street Fighter 2010: The Final Fight (...:

The reason it's not much like a "Street Fighter" game, is because it ISN'T! They just added "Street Fighter" to the english title to get people interested in the game.

Bear in mind that Street Fighter II didn't exist when this game was released.



Bass_X0 commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

Nintendo wants people to purchase these games again,

No. Only if you don't have them already, or prefer the convenience of digital.

I wish they'd announced N64

You can play Super Mario 64 with a classic controller right now on Game Pad... through the Wii Mode.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 15th January (Europe):

Tekken file size is too big, that's a good reason not to get it.

I got it on sale at £10 last year on the eshop. It was fine because I barely had any games downloaded at the time. But over time I kept download and deleting games to make room. Now that I finally deleted Tekken, I can have all my other downloaded games on my system.

I really need a external hard drive but I don't know much about which is the best for a good price.



Bass_X0 commented on Capcom Licenses a Mega Man Runner for Android ...:

Capcom didn't make this. Jenoi did. All Capcom did was license Mega Man for them to make a game from. Capcom wouldn't have dictated that it had to be on one platform or another or that it had to play a certain way. Jenoi did.

Okay I didn't realize this before but, why does Oil MAN sound like a teenage girl?

How about Oil Man looking like a racist stereotype. Look at the picture at the top.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Adds a Bunch of Virtual Console Title...:

Just wish they'd put GBA/SNES games on 3DS. It's obvious the 3DS can run the games.

They probably want them to be exclusive to Wii U so people with a 3DS have more incentive to buy one. As if all the great retail games weren't enough.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario Wor...:

if the SNES original is already in the VC then shouldnt Nintendo put their energy and development time into other software.

The only equivalent they could have done instead is release a different GBA title.

Still waiting for the SNES version of Yoshi's Island.

It won't be coming any time soon. I hope you downloaded it on GBA. There's no reason not to.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario Wor...:

You only really need one version. Its not recommended to download this if you already have the SNES version. Whereas it is still worth buying Super Mario Advance 1 even if you already have NES Super Mario Bros. 2



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario Wor...:

@emayer - back then, thats just what people wanted. The original SNES game on GBA. I owned the SNES cartridge and I still bought the GBA cartridge. Maybe they could and should have added more content. But they didn't need to. Of course, now that we have both versions on Wii U, this version will look considerably worse than the original SNES game.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Cubit The Hardcore Platformer Robot (3...:

Just because you're a small company is no excuse to release a game with uninspired and bland art direction,

I would imagine its this way to keep the costs down. Would you want to pay more for a prettier looking game? When you're focusing on the next platform ahead, you can't pay attention to how the game looks.

With only 6 levels
They're long levels though. And again, its probably just to keep the price down. Many people won't see the last three levels anyway. And by the time you do see all six levels, you will have gotten your money's worth for it.

Its an unforgiving game. You will die a lot. But each death is due to the player's fault, not because of the controls. Its a game to test your memory and reactions.



Bass_X0 commented on Video: Super Mario 64 Is Getting A Fan-Made HD...:

Yeah, Nintendo should do this themselves.

Whoopdy doo, enhanced HD visuals, but still it's technically the SAME playing game that I've played enough of already.

Thats enough for most people and it doesn't matter that its the same game. People enjoy going through such a remake and seeing how much better it looks now than it used to. Its why people played Ocarina of Time 3D and will be buying Majora's Mask 3D.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 8th January:

2015 and more trickles of VC games

What trickle? We're doing pretty well. On Wii U at least. Two games a week minimum, whatever those games are, is how it should be. We have had times where we only got two games in one month. I'm not interested in Dig Dug or Lode Runner either, but at least its two more NES games crossed off the list to be released.
8/1 - Dig Dug, Lode Runner
1/1 - Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones, F-Zero GP Legend
25/12 - Duck Hunt, Kuru Kuru Kururin, Mega Man Zero, Mario Party Advance
18/12 - Mighty Final Fight, Street Fighter 2010
11/12 - Pokemon Pinball Ruby & Sapphire
4/12 - Crash n the Boys: Street Challenge, S.C.A.T., Shadow of the Ninja

Haven't bought a VC game since DKC2

Why didn't you download DKC3?



Bass_X0 commented on Two Tetris Titles Pulled From the 3DS eShop in...:

I downloaded the GB game a few weeks ago because of the warning. I wouldn't have done if it wasn't going to be pulled.

2.and we should get donkey kong land then since that has been rated

You got GBC Bionic Commando instead today.



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

Nintendo is either unaware that people can get annoyed if they are treated like 2nd class citizens (that goes both ways between US and EU on occassion, which makes it even more baffling), or they don't care ... or .. hell if I know.

They will have several games ready to release at any one time yet they are only allowed to release them one or two a week. Of course fans will be kept waiting at that rate. Europe got Pokemon Pinball before Sacred Stones too. While America has games that Europe are still waiting months for. There is no conspiracy or incompetency.



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

there is probably an excellent reason for the way US and EU VC console releases are handled, just none poor me in my infinite ignorance could fathom

Different people deal with their own countries releases. Fire Emblem will be sitting there waiting to be released but the Nintendo guy said Pokemon instead.



Bass_X0 commented on Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World:

There's no real reason to download this. You'll either have SNES Super Mario World already, or if you don't, you should download SNES Super Mario World instead. I understand Nintendo probably released it just to get all the Super Mario Advance games onto Wii U. I doubt they expect high sales for it.

And even though it is an unnecessary game, it is still a good game. I hope NintendoLife doesn't give it a low score just because the SNES version is already available.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy (...:

but you know, what would britons do if these games were French only?

Thankfully for the U.K. that America has the same language as us. If they didn't and we were our own little island with our own language, then we would really be screwed.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy (...:

@spizzamarozzi: Its been addressed

a lot of extra work went into polishing the English script to ensure it was up to modern quality standards, and doing the same for other languages was simply out of this title project’s scope.

@pikpikp: I'm glad they didn't touch the music. Its as good as it was and altering it in any way risks reducing what people enjoy about it.

My personal nitpicks about this game is that they didn't provide an in-game script like in Dual Destinies, nor can you go back to a specific chapter in a case like you can in Proffessor Layton X Phoenix Wright.
