Charco commented on Wild Guns:

Control pad moves cursor and character. Y to shoot, B to jump and X for bomb. Controls are very good actually as the stages are pretty static (only a tiny bit of scroll).

Good game, but not as good as Blood Bros. in the arcade.

Charco commented on Talking Point: Copyright and Video Games:

@Pj "Why can't they just work together to give back "some thing" to gamers? dare I say it I've heard Golden Eye is coming to the X box arcade channel?"

Video games companies don't care about you or me or what we want. They only want your money. We would all do well to realise this.

Charco commented on Talking Point: Copyright and Video Games:

What an insightful and well written article. One of the problems with video games is that they are not classified in the same realm as other media. They are not widely respected or treated as legitimate works but more as toys. I am all for petitioning your local representative, but I am afraid this is akin to discussing quantum physics with your 6 year old niece.

Charco commented on Japanese Virtual Console list - April 2009:

@ Drake Yeah you are right I suppose. Of the two though, get the PC Engine version guys. There's a cheat code in it to use a full English translation too. Don't know why it never got a Western release.

Charco commented on Corbie's Top 20 Virtual Console Releases - Part 2:

Excellent list Corbie and well done for choosing the games YOU rate most highly. There are some excellent games on this list and I must say Simon's Quest was one of my favourite games I owned for my NES. The music is truly superb.

Charco commented on Secret of Mana:

Thanks deadly.by.design, that sounds like I would like it. Turn-based stuff has absolutely no appeal to me at all. I'll give this a go.

Charco commented on Secret of Mana:

I'm a big fan of Legend of Zelda ALTTP and not really into traditional RPG's. Is this more similar to the Zelda/Neutopia style of adventure game? I would definitely try it if it is.

Charco commented on Review: LostWinds:

Downloaded this game yesterday evening and I must say it is a breath of fresh air (no pun intended). Graphically beautiful, minimalist, relaxing and atmospheric music and some of the best use of gesture based controls by a third party developer so far on Wii. Couple this with the fact that it is made by a small, independent UK developer and I am one happy gamer. Already looking forward to Lost Winds 2. Developers: take note.

Charco commented on Fatal Fury Special:

All we need now is World Heroes Jet to make the first two World Heroes games obsolete. Yey!

Charco commented on Streets of Rage 3:

Great game, it is better than Final Fight on SNES as it has two player. Music is fantastic too.
I must say though, if you liked the Streets of Rage series you simply HAVE to download Streets of Rage Remake from
www.bombergames.net
It's a brand new game, using sprites from the originals, has new or redone stages, has Adam from SOR1 as a playable character...the list goes on!! Basically it has all the best bits from the originals and more! It's freeware so there is NO excuse!!

Charco commented on Sonic on the Master System coming to Virtual C...:

I hope it is the Master System version of Sonic the Hedgehog. I was just playing it recently and the graphics and music are impressive for an 8bit game. It is significantly different enough to warrant a VC release IMO.

Charco commented on World Heroes 2:

Why get this, when you will no doubt be able to get World Heroes Perfect at a later stage? Same goes for Fatal Fury 1 and 2 when Fatal Fury Special will be released. Yawn. I grow tired of the VC.

Charco commented on EU VC Releases - 20th June - Epic Fail:

Ok, that does it. I am installing the Homebrew Channel and playing all these games for free using emulators on my Wii. Your downright contempt towards your loyal customers recently has lost you another lifelong Nintendo "geek." You should be ashamed of yourselves Nintendo.

Charco commented on Review: Star Soldier R:

I just noticed there is no video under the review like in VC-Reviews. Will that be changed? I thought that was a great idea.
