BearHunger commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Brings Circ...:

This happened to my brother's 3DS long before this game. He blames Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon primarily. (I wouldn't be surprised if Kid Icarus: Uprising had a hand in it too.)

Anyway, I've been worrying about breaking my circle pad on this game since it was announced. So many GameCube joysticks in my household got worn out during Melee. No Wii joysticks wore out playing Brawl though! Except maybe for one that I think could be showing its age.



BearHunger commented on Review: Rabi Laby 3 (3DS eShop):


I've known of this series since the release of the first game, and only just this minute did I find out it's not called "Rabi Lady."

You all needed to know that.



BearHunger commented on Review: Mega Man X3 (Wii U eShop / Super Ninte...:

I for one am glad that the score was not inflated to reflect the game's name. I don't see much personal bias in this review at all; if there were any, the score would likely be higher on the basis of Zero's inclusion as a playable character. I mean, that's pretty cool. Anyway, the game really does have notable issues in many aspects of its design. 5/10 does not refer to a bad game anyway, not on this site.

During the time that I played some of this game's levels, I was wondering whether or not I was playing a finished game. For a game that does so little new, it's quite a departure from its excellent predecessors.



BearHunger commented on Nintendo Confirms Three More Virtual Console T...:

I was like, “Ooh, Adventure Island!” for a second, then I read, “Wii U eShop.”

I want that game in some form on my 3DS. Revenge of Drancon would fully justify another wave of Game Gear titles. Oh well, there are other platformers available.



BearHunger commented on Gallery: A Closer Look at the GameCube-Inspire...:

As @Gamecubii-64DD pointed out, these look a lot like the GameStop-branded Chameleon controllers, also by PDP. The outer shell is extremely similar.

If they're enough like those, then the D-pad will be bad and the control stick will probably stop working fairly quickly if not lucky.

Since these are Classic Controllers in a different shape, they are not truly wired—they plug into the wireless Wii Remote. Also, "fight pad" isn't really accurate—there is only one series where the GameCube controller would ever be considered one of those. :-D



BearHunger commented on Review: Ufouria: The Saga (Wii U eShop / NES):

For an NES game, this animates and plays remarkably smoothly. It may not be a classic, but it's one of the best games on the system just for that. Its sprite work is also really good, a byproduct of the puffy, simple art style.



BearHunger commented on Ocarina Of Time Began Life As A Remake Of Zeld...:

Saying Zelda II is one of the least popular Zelda games is like saying Super Mario Sunshine is one of the least popular Mario games. Each was one of the most popular games on its system, and each belongs to one of the most popular series out there.

@tysonfury #5 You could play an ocarina with buttons back in 1992. Want your earth to be shattered by the original button-controlled ocarina? Play Wonder Boy in Monster World and witness the amazement. ;)



BearHunger commented on Review: Mickey Mania (Super Nintendo):

This is a wonderful, imaginative game with beautiful animation, graphical effects, and even music. (The Genesis version is, anyway; I don't know about this one.) The collision detection isn't very friendly, but that is no obstacle to my enjoyment.

Beyond licensing issues, I know why this was never released on Virtual Console: at the end of the credits, the game tells you to buy it twice if you like it. You'd be able to buy it only once digitally, though! There's the problem.



BearHunger commented on Guide: All You Need to Know on Mario Kart 8 Ch...:

Weren't Toad and Peach the slowest characters in Super Circuit? I don't know, I always thought they had their attributes lifted from Toad and Koopa Troopa in Super Mario Kart. I know they were the fastest in 64 (the only characters with any speed difference in that game, it seems to me).

Anyway, this guide doesn't cover the hidden stat differences that nobody knows about (e.g. speed underwater), but the note about acceleration is a helpful and unfortunate tip.



BearHunger commented on Review: Internal Invasion (Wii U eShop):

It’s very sad when you consider that the intention of the Web Framework is to allow fledgling developers a chance to showcase their work, but instead it appears to have opened the floodgates for substandard games to appear on the platform.

"Instead"? Those aren't mutually exclusive. This game is an example of a fledgling developer showcasing its work. Considering the accessibility of the platform and the low barrier of entry for release, expecting most of the games to be ≥A would be unrealistic.



BearHunger commented on Review: The Great Circus Mystery Starring Mick...:

I can't say I had much fun with this game. Co-op made it bearable, but as far as 16-bit platformers go, this one's not at all special. And the music is mostly terrible, unless the SNES version's soundtrack is completely different from the Genesis one's. I guess Mickey Mania has spoiled me.



BearHunger commented on Review: Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails (Wi...:

@SecondServing The problem with that is that reviews aren't always on the mark. So if a reviewer happens to misunderstand an aspect of the game, or happens to be completely unqualified for the job (note: I am not referring to this review or its writer), then you're barred from a potentially perfectly great game.

Read multiple reviews for a game, and you're golden.



BearHunger commented on Mario Kart Month: Mario Kart 8 Character Profi...:

Here was your Super Mario Sunshine representative. It takes care of Luigi's Mansion, too!

Anyway, the next game needs a baby for every character. ;) Why leave anyone out at this point? Of course, then they'd have to exclude Dry Bones and Dry Bowser, because nobody who's happy wants to play as a dead baby. 😖



BearHunger commented on Cruel and Cuddly Platformer Chubbins Sent to N...:

Looks to be a Percy's Predicament-style indie eShop title. I don't know whether to think, This is damaging to the eShop's quality over quantity image (which is a load of crap anyway)! The eShop is being made into an App Store, and that is not a good thing! or, Nintendo has made it so accessible to create and publish games that anyone can and should get in on the fun! The Wii U could always use more support, after all! The eShop is being made into an App Store, and that is a good thing! * shrug *

EDIT: Oh right, hasn't been approved yet. It could be, though. (Play With Birds was approved for WiiWare, so I'm inclined to think that anything goes.)



BearHunger commented on Mario Kart Month: An Outsider's View Of Super ...:

I never had a problem with the menus. And really, I watch that classic title screen play out nearly every time I boot up the game. And there were a lot of clever things in the deeper menus, like the borders on the Grand Prix screen and the course backgrounds on all the other course select screens. There are way worse things to complain about with this game.

Of course, those get rightfully touched upon later on, so it's all good. It took me forever to start liking this game; for the longest time it was one of those games that I kept coming back to despite it being terrible, until I came to the conclusion that either it wasn't terrible or its terribleness was a good thing.



BearHunger commented on Mario Kart Month: Mario Kart 8 Character Profi...:

I use 'em all, especially in Double Dash‼︎. D.K. Kong tends to be my favorite out of the mainstays, partly for his classic banana-colored (AKA yellow) go-kart. In Mario Kart 7, though, I almost always use Metal Mario, I practically never touch the small vehicles in Wii, and Mario's my favorite in Super Mario Kart.



BearHunger commented on Nintendo Direct: Special Mario Kart 8 Direct S...:

Baby Rosalina… Pink Gold Peach… They're trolling. They get away with it because the game is still awesome.

I really don't like the look of that character select screen, though. I was thinking that that was just a placeholder, but I guess not.
