Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 26th March (North America):

So, has nintendo ever been interviewed on virtual console releases? I would love to know the process and why the huge gaps in time between releases in different regions...

I think its because Nintendo of America doesn't care what Nintendo of Europe releases and vice versa. I would say that Nintendo of America and Nintendo and Europe have access to a large list of games available (with a few exclusives) to release but each country pick games independently.

@whodatninja Doesn't matter. Metroid Zero Mission is a different, superior, experience to the NES game. Its like saying you don't want Super Metroid because you already have the NES game. The three games are all worth downloading if you're a fan.



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

I'm a pretty good player so I had to purposely lose a fight before reaching Bison so the game wouldn't crash on me!

I have to do the same in HD Remix as I'm just no good against Akuma. I only managed to beat him once and that was just for the achievement. And that took about thirty attempts.

Them butchering some of the classic backgrounds was one thing (Ryu's, Ken's, Chun Li's, Guile's!)

I wouldn't call being given new backgrounds to be a butcher. The new ones are decent enough, only let down by their only appearance being on GBA (except Chun-Li's Alpha 2 stage).



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Sky Kid (Wii U eShop / NES):

So is this game good, average or poor? NintendoLife says its all three. Which reviewer should I trust to have made an accurate judgement of the game's quality?



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Metroid: Zero Mission (Wii U eShop / G...:


Because they want 3DS owners to also own a Wii U.

Do you still unlock the original Metroid as a bonus?

I don't think they would remove it. If it bothered them that much, they wouldn't sell Zero Mission at all. Besides, I think NES Metroid is going to have all the sales it will get by now.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 12th March (Europe):

Nothing for me this week. (I already got Metroid NES)

Metroid Zero Mission is different enough to worth downloading even if you do already own NES Metroid. Its not the same experience.

Does Zero mission still contain the original Metroid as bonus content? Or did they edit that out to not cannibalize their own sales?

They've not altered a game so far (other than not being able to use link-up).



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Pac-Attack (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo):

Its only worth downloading if you already downloaded it on Wii and want to transfer. Otherwise, yes, everybody else should get the Pac-Man Collection if you want to play this. A pointless release, but I want all VC games from Wii to eventually appear on the Wii U eshop.



Bass_X0 commented on Interplay Is Remastering Cult SNES Brawler Cla...:

why do you assume that a game that once sucked (in your opinion) can't be improved enough to make it an actual good game? and surely a game that does suck is more in need of a remake than a game that was originally good?



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 5th March (Europe):

I don't think I will be visiting the eshop until Nintendo have released a Wii game with added Wii U gamepad controls.

And when a Wii game that uses the Classic Controller does get released, it will use the Game Pad - and not before. Motion control games won't ever do so.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 26th February (Europe):

I thought of a reason why Pac-Attack should have came to the Wii U Virtual Console - so that those of us who have downloaded it on Wii can transfer it across to Wii U. But thats the only reason.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 26th February (Europe):

Nintendo still doesn't want that VC free money. Crazy! Still tons to bring out

It costs money to put games onto the VC so putting a lot out too quickly will result in some games being overlooked. Three games every week across Wii U and 3DS, regardless of what those games actually are, is the best option.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 26th February (Europe):

Super Mario Bros. 2 and Super Mario Advance are acceptable. Super Mario Advance has several differences compared to the original NES game. Super Mario Advance 2 is pointless because its not that different to SNES Super Mario World.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 26th February (Europe):

Which should I get out of 4 Elements, Jewel Quest 4 and Jewel Quest Mysteries 3? I don't have any of these Jewel Quest type games. Also, Pac-Attack isn't worth a purchase since its also included in the GBA Pac-Man Collection.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Breath of Fire (Wii U eShop / Super Ni...:

Breath of Fire gets 5/10 and Baseball (NES) for the virtual Console gets 6/10. Normally I agree with your reviews 100% but these are the two that befuddle me.

Games from one system are generally scored against other games from the same system. I agree that Baseball isn't as good as the reviewer thought it was.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts (Wii U eShop / ...:

You're just angry for the sake of being angry, ANGRYBALDMAN666. Capcom deciding to release Super Ghouls n Ghosts on GBA doesn't prevent arcade, N64, GameCube and Mega Drive games coming to Wii U or GBA games coming to 3DS. The only justified complaints about this release is that Capcom should have chose to release something else instead. Nothing to do with Nintendo's decisions.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts (Wii U eShop / ...:

Capcom should have offered the GBA version on sale if you already own the SNES version. I wouldn't have minded paying £1.50 for this. I also think Capcom should have released some of their other GBA games before this. This should really have been the last GBA game that Capcom released. SSFIIT Revival, Final Fight One, Super Puzzle Fighter II, Mega Man & Bass... they're all much better.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow (Wii U eSh...:

You never know when Nintendo might bright us the NES Classics GBA ports, they did it with Super Mario World's GBA port in Japan after all.....

They won't bring the NES Classics to Virtual Console when they already have the NES originals. There's no point. At least the GBA versions of Super Mario World and Super Ghouls n Ghosts had new content to warrant their release.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance (Wi...:

I stopped caring about the old GBA cartridges. I'd rather have them on my Wii U, even if they are more expensive. Anyway, I think this is better than Circle of the Moon. It looks a lot better on my Wii U Game Pad than I remember it doing on my old GBA SP.
