BlueBandanaJake commented on Pandora's Tower Reaches Europe on 13th April:

Oh awesome!
Im here in NA, but I'm glad its seeing a release outside of Japan, that's definitely a great sign! I think of the three games everyone was clamoring for, this was the one I really wanted to get my hands on. A release in Europe is a step towards a release over here in NA, so here's hoping that comes to fruition



BlueBandanaJake commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd November 2011 (North Am...:

Dude, Balloon Kid is awesome, its Balloon Fight with actual side scrolling levels. There's a color version of the game too, but I think it may have only come out in Japan? Not sure, buts its good fun, just as much fun as Mario Land or Kirby's Dreamland, I honestly never expected it to see a release here



BlueBandanaJake commented on Mario and Sonic Have a Valentine's Day Date:

Hey Sega... you know how Capcom kinda dropped the ball and everyone is feeling like they're missing out on some high flying sky pirating adventures?? Maybe they were really hoping for an older property to finally make a triumphant return? Dont you have something like that to kinda fill the void (and totally cash in on someone else's mistake)? Hmm...???



BlueBandanaJake commented on Monster Hunter 3G Definitely Doesn't Have Onli...:

Guess everyone's spoiled by the times, which isnt something to be ashamed of really. The PSP games were the same in that they didnt have online, but I guess im a little disappointed by this news too. Still will totally buy it if it comes stateside though, online or not (but here's hoping)



BlueBandanaJake commented on Review: Wario World (GameCube):

The game was kinda mediocre, but it did provide some fun, I can agree with the score, Wario has had much better games.

That being said though, I owe this game for introducing me to WarioWare XD



BlueBandanaJake commented on Review: Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins (3D...:

Fantastic review, just about everything involving this game is just great! Im so glad that I get to play it again

I remember reading somewhere that this game started off in development as a port of sorts of Mario World, it definitely looks like it could have achieved this at the quality this game is on its own.



BlueBandanaJake commented on Feature: BIT.TRIP SAGA vs. BIT.TRIP COMPLETE:

I own all of the WiiWare versions of these games and loved them to death, but that being said I can play all of them on Wii and it'd feel pretty silly to buy them again for the same system, so this makes Saga feel more attractive to me, maybe somewhere down the line I'll buy Collection too



BlueBandanaJake commented on Analyst Predicts Monster Hunter Announcement a...:

It would be emotionally irresponsible for me to let loose and become hugely excited over this rumor that has very little actual backing, so instead of creating a massive disappointment in the event that this turns out to be untrue by way of generating extreme hype, I am going to make some toast.



BlueBandanaJake commented on SEGA, Aksys and Konami All Use Permanent 3DS S...:

When that happens I'll be upset, but I'm not gonna be outraged now until that happens, so far the trend appears to be only games whose saves arent really that important. If Bit.Trip Saga and the Pacman and Galaga games also had this feature it wouldnt really be too bad because they're of the same mold of gameplay.

And honestly, whats so bad about eating my own words? They came from my mouth in the first place.



BlueBandanaJake commented on SEGA, Aksys and Konami All Use Permanent 3DS S...:

Again, I still dont see the big upset for all of this, they only thing those games save are unlocks and high scores, it's not like they're files in Ocarina of Time (which would be terrible if you couldnt start a new game in).

With Monkey Ball all the levels are available, and all the medals are unlocked, and that's it, its not that huge a deal. I was always against buying used copies anyway, I kinda dislike the idea of Gamestop making a cool $20 for little to no cost to them.

But then, considering that this ISNT that big a deal, then this seems like a weak way to combat that at all, which makes me feel that this is a mostly pointless strategy anyway :/



BlueBandanaJake commented on Review: Mega Man 5 (Virtual Console / NES):

I like to refer to MM5 as "No One's Favorite MegaMan" since just about everyone will have a title they favor over it (my favorites are 9, 7 and 2), but that doesnt make it a crappy game. Personally I do love this game, many of its tracks are some of my favorites (Title, Stage Select, StoneMan, NapalmMan, Wily Stages, Wily Capsule are really cool). And alot of the level gimmicks are pretty fun too. I think this review was spot on, and anyone who loves the classic Megaman games should definately try this. If MM2 or 3 didnt sell you though, this one isnt going to change your mind.



BlueBandanaJake commented on Darksiders II Launching in 2012 for Wii U:

This seems to be the trend with Nintendo's E3 presentations: the year new hardware is introduced there arent alot of games announced, because that's not the point right now, the point is to let it sink in and imagine what's possible with these new ideas.

Next year we'll see Darksiders II and much more software playable once the WiiU is ready to be launched, that'll be the truly big presentation. I cant wait.



BlueBandanaJake commented on New 3DS Cartoon Network Fighter Screenshots Pu...:

Watching some of the gameplay in a few videos, it doesnt look all that great (which is really disappointing to me, I love Cartoon Networks cartoons) so I'm hoping it turns out better than what I've seen, I'd really like this to be a great game.



BlueBandanaJake commented on Review: Mega Man X (Virtual Console / Super Ni...:

Megaman 10? No no no, Megaman X! So that being said, why not a 10/10?
This game is perfect, and quite possibly the best X Series game (definately my favorite), even though I already own it, I dont mind supporting good ol' X in anyway I can

PLUS: classic controller, nuff said.



BlueBandanaJake commented on Iwata Hits Out at Smartphone and Social Networ...:

The fact that 200 to 300 million people who play Facebook games doesnt disprove what Iwata's opinion in the slightest, if anything it makes it more easily applicable. Thats alot of people who are attracted to these low value games, and that's unfortunate. The guys are Zynga are only interested in profit, and less much interested in providing entertainment and fun for people, it's not their passion, as Mr. Iwata spoke about in his keynote. Nintendo will always have the upperhand, because they've always got their passion backing their software.



BlueBandanaJake commented on Features: 10 Sega Games We Want on 3DS:

Wow, yeah, it took 50 comments before someone MENTIONED Skies of Arcadia, I gotta say, that's a little upsetting! A Skies sequel would be on the same level of awesomeness as the Megaman Legends sequel we're already getting!



BlueBandanaJake commented on Pac-Man & Galaga Screens and Video Bring the 8...:

Namco suck, I really want to play Pacman:CE but as I dont have an Xbox I cant and they seem to dislike WiiWare as to not try to make ANYTHING for it (their sole WiiWare game is Mr. Driller, and if I'm not mistaken its a port of the DS Mr. Driller anyway).

Is bitter because he likes Galaga and Pacman



BlueBandanaJake commented on MotoHeroz Trailer Should Get You All Revved-Up:

That actually does look really nice, and it looks like alot of fun. The name is rather lame though, hearing it reminded me of the crappy racing games that have graced the service in the past, but it's nice to see it isnt like that at all.
