Hmm, non-licensed GBC games yet to see the VC? Well, I understand why the classic main-series Pokémon games aren't being released (at least if/until the link cable is emulated on the VC), but what about "Pokémon Trading Card Game," or even better the Japan-only sequel? Those games are almost entirely single-player adventures and so shouldn't have any issues coming to the VC. I'd gladly buy a copy of "Pokémon TCG 2" for my 3DS.

I have little interest in cheap mobile games. Despite the cheap prices, I find most of the games to be incredibly shallow even compared to many eShop titles, and that's even before considering how much button controls improve the experience. My money will continue to fund only gaming devices that mainly support the full gaming experience.

BulbasaurusRex commented on Review: Governor of Poker (3DS eShop):

A lack of any kind of multiplayer is a real negative, sure, but the campaign mode doesn't sound anywhere near as bad as you make it out to be. It sounds like a game of "Risk" (or maybe "Monopoly") where you play poker instead of roll dice, which sounds just fine to me. Having more interactivity on top of that would just be a bonus.

@Funny_Moblin @Doma I told you, she's bound her chest, just like any other woman disguising herself as a man would do (unless they have armor like Mulan). They still show enough that they'd be quite the pair of man boobs on a guy. Plus, a male Sheik would have his nuts crushed harder than in the jaws of a miniature Russian soldier in those tights.

Comparing her to Samus doesn't make any sense, since she always has been female inside her armor, so of course it would be designed more femininely in the huge graphics jump between the SNES and the GameCube. In a way, you're actually supporting my view with that comparison.

The midriff is kind of weird, but did they really have to cut his hair? Having long hair doesn't keep animé action guys like Kenshin Himura and Inuyasha from becoming popular in the West. Heck, Ranma Saotome even has a braided pigtail like Gunvolt, although admittedly his hairstyle is partly because of his whole changing-into-a-girl-with-cold-water problem.

I wish the actual Wiimote had 4 buttons on the bottom. It would make the controls less awkward for sideways Wiimote games like "Metroid: Other M" and "Kirby's Return to Dreamland," and it would also let us play VC SNES games with the Wiimote.

@Dreamcaster-X Agreed. MK Wii has great online play (for races, anyway) and probably a better single-player experience, but it absolutely sucks when it comes to local multiplayer, especially in Battle Mode. Double Dash, on the other hand, has a great co-op mechanic, better roster, fun racer-exclusive items, 4-player Grand Prix, All Cup Tour, and excellent Battle Mode arenas with free-for-all stock matches.

Out of the ones I own, my rankings are:
1. MK: Double Dash
2. MK7
3. MK Wii
4. MK: Super Curcuit

You'd think the Japanese have the idea that most Westerners have blond hair and blue eyes despite the fact that it's not all that common. I'm one of 5 children, completely of Western European descent, yet my entire family has brown hair and brown eyes except for my mom having green eyes.

Even if the rumor of customizable movesets is true, Combot would easily break the game. Unlike in Tekken, the different moves of a Smash Bros. character have a very wide variety of power and usefulness. An advanced player could easily come up with an uber Combot moveset that would make him nearly unbeatable against any character other than another Combot.

BulbasaurusRex commented on Nintendo Download: 20th March (North America):

@Nintendo64Dude If you're waiting for the 3DS release of SMB3, I understand, but if you absolutely can't wait for it on the Wii U, just get it off the Wii Shop and upgrade when it is released on Wii U. Why do so many people forget that the entire Wii VC catalog is already available on the Wii U?! The Wii U re-releases are really only upgrades to add a few features like restore points and the ability to use your e-Shop funds.

Where's the Conception demo? I still can't find it on the e-Shop?

@sillygostly Technically, there is a third option to play the games on your TV, but it's pretty ridiculous, as you'd have to import a Japanese GameCube, Japanese GameBoy Player, and the original GBA releases.

The artwork looks much better now. I'm holding out on getting the 2nd and 3rd games in case this collection comes west.

@Kaze_Memaryu Really? While I admit that Nami's wardrobe (or lack thereof) has crossed the line into disgustingly skimpy, I think she and Robin are now both quite a bit hotter than they were pre-timeskip.

Well, fishing and bug-catching sound boring, but I'll have to keep an eye on it to see if it turns out to be any good.

@ikki5 I've heard that the original Japanese dialogue said Brock's mother ran off just like his father did. The English dub then changed it not knowing that they were writing themselves into a plothole.

EDIT: Oh, MagicBox beat me to it. Should've read all the comments first before posting.

BulbasaurusRex commented on Review: Quell Reflect (3DS eShop):

Cool, one of the few puzzle games that sounds interesting to me. It reminds me somewhat of the old DOS game "Apocalypse Abyss" or the Windows 3.1 game "Chip's Challenge." I'll add it to my Wishlist.

BulbasaurusRex commented on Nintendo Switching Off Wi-Fi Connection Servic...:

Well that's disappointing. I've now got a strict time limit to finish my Pokédex in White and Black 2. At least 3rd party games aren't affected (as long as those companies keep the servers running), but does that mean I'll have to get a Wii U to continue playing "Conduit 2" online after that point? Well, just one more reason to sell my Wii once I get a Wii U and then just hook my GameCube (with GBA Player) back up.

@Moviefan2k4 The difficulty of the Genesis version isn't that bad. While I've never done it in a single playthrough, I've beaten every level except the carpet ride (where they give you a pass to the next level after three tries, as well as a decently obtainable extra life on at least one try) and the last one, and I'm probably below average in platforming skill level (still can't get up the waterfall in Level 6 of "The Lion King").

@Jimonfire You can throw apples in the Genesis version, too.

I've only played the Genesis version, but it is one of my favorite Genesis games, although it does bother me how they took so many liberties with the story.

Watching the video of the SNES version, I don't know if I would enjoy it much. The platforming looks very awkward, as does defeating the enemies by jumping on them, and the music is pretty annoying. Swordplay was definitely the way to go. They didn't even give the guards swords, yet they gave some of them bows which were never in the movie?! What's up with that?!

One of the most varied libraries?! Yeah, right! [/sarcasm] Something like at least 3/4 of its retail library consists of RPGs, puzzle games, casual titles, inferior console ports, and games that overuse the touch screen (Star Fox Command, Kirby Mass Attack, etc.). The GBA has a much more varied library.

BulbasaurusRex commented on AE Games Reveals Mad Men Football, High Impact...:

@GunstarHero234 Last I checked, you can't sue over a similar acronym or a parody work. EA Games can't do anything about it. It's not like they have the rights to the letters "A" and "E" (or were brought to you by the number "7"). As for the work itself, parodies can be really good on their own merits. Otherwise we wouldn't have successful pop-culture phenomenon like Weird Al Yankovic, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Viewtiful Joe, or Retro City Rampage.

I love this guy's idea. There's a good chance that I'll buy it someday.

@AlbertoC Reminds me of an episode of "Reboot" when a comedian binome said "Take my wife, please" in binary ASCII.

@AJWolfTill You do realize Chrom gets married halfway through the game, right?

Another excellent edition! They're not all horrible picks, though. I could go for Jill as long as she never made me visit her at work and promised to take full advantage of maternity leave when the time came, and Chrom's a great guy if I swung that way.

BulbasaurusRex commented on Mythical Pokémon Diancie Confirmed for X & Y:

This thing has got to know Power Gem.

Anyway, the Pokédex entry makes it clear that it only "evolved" from Carbink in the traditional sense (in the same way Shellder is part of Slowbro and Slowking despite not sharing an evolutionary line), not the Pokémon sense.

BulbasaurusRex commented on Review: ARC STYLE: Solitaire (3DS eShop):

Even if it didn't have control issues, why would people pay for a no frills solitaire game when just about everyone already has a free version of the klondike, freecell, and spider varieties on their computer?

I'd prefer Mewtwo, but it's good to see Lucario back, and Mewtwo could still make the cut.

@MuchoMochi Agreed, Mega Lucario coming in to use something like Dragon Pulse or Close Combat would make an excellent Final Smash. I was so disappointed that its Final Smash in Brawl wasn't an actual Pokémon attack.

BulbasaurusRex commented on Feature: 10 Nintendo DS Games We Want To See O...:

Lots of RPGs on the list, I see. If you're into RPGs and puzzle games, the DS is your system. Otherwise the games library is pretty lacking, mostly consisting of casual c***, games that go overboard with touch-screen control (Star Fox Command, Kirby Mass Attack, etc.), or ports of superior console versions. The GBA (and arguable even the 3DS this early on) has a much more diverse quality library.
