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.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 28th August (Europe):

I really like SteamWorld Dig but £4.99 to play it again on Wii U when I can just flip out my 3DS feels a bit much,

I would imagine the clearer graphics and wider screen really helps the game.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: SteamWorld Dig (Wii U eShop):

This game was seriously difficult for me on the 3DS until I found out you could wall jump like Mega Man X. I'm waiting for a sale since I already have the first one.



Bass_X0 commented on Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures Is Coming To ...:

a grown 30 something year old man watching an elmo movie and relating everything to sex wherever he can and making pedophile voices?

An adult watching kids movies to make fun of them from an adult perspective for other adults is pretty much what these internet movie reviewers do. I didn't see anything worse than a typical South Park episode.



Bass_X0 commented on CoroCoro Magazine Reveals Three Mega Evolution...:

Where is Mega Raichu?

And I wish Mega Evolutions were restricted only to Pokemon with three stages of evolution already. Not given to those with only one or two stages since a Mega Evolution effectively ends that Pokemon's evolutionary stages. Could have future new prevo Pokemon for the likes of Swablu and Mawlie.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Pop'n TwinBee: Rainbow Bell Adventures...:

Very poor decision by Konami to not release the JP version instead.

They're not going to release a Japanese language version when a english version exists, even if it is in 50hz.

Perhaps they should release both versions for the cost of one so that players can choose which they want to play.
