Charco commented on Sing Along to The History of Nintendo:
Charco commented on S.C.A.T.: Special Cybernetic Attack Team:
SCAT? Are you sure this is ok for kids?
Charco commented on First Thor Wii Screenshot Takes the Bull by th...:
Charco commented on Review: Shantae: Risky's Revenge (DSiWare):
Any chance of this getting a WiiWare release?
Charco commented on RZA Joins the DJ Hero 2 Clan as a Playable Cha...:
President of the Wu, but I'm also a client.
Charco commented on Nintendo Download: 26 April 2010 (North America):
KOF '95 is a nice game.
Charco commented on Ufouria: The Saga:
Great music as is the case with all Sunsoft NES games.
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 Fatal Fury 3: Road to the Final Victory:
Hilarious voice over at the title screen.
Charco commented on The Grinder Gets a Release Date; Goes Multi-Pl...:
I agree, but I always get nervous when I hear plans changing so drastically during a dev cycle. Never a good sign.
This shows a company that doesn't know what it is doing, has no clear plan in place and will lose the fans it had on Wii by going multi platform.
Charco commented on Sunsoft To Release Telenet Titles On Virtual C...:
Journey to Silius
Charco commented on New Super Mario Bros. Wii Gets Perfect Score i...:
I have lost all faith in Famitsu now. This is a 7/10 game. I hope Bayonetta is actually good now that I hear this.
Charco commented on Review: Street Fighter II': Champion Edition (...:
The music is better than the garbled SNES version in my opinion but it's a matter of taste. An excellent port.
Charco commented on Capcom Cordially Invites You To Decide The Nex...:
Capcom vs SNK 3 obviously. Quite why nobody has mentioned it so far is baffling me.
Charco commented on Crash 'n the Boys: Street Challenge:
I don't know of many other NES games with scrolling backgrounds as good as that to be honest. This is on my radar.
Charco commented on Review: Bomberman '94 (TG-16):
Mega Bomberman was the Genesis port of this game.
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.
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 Welcome to the New Look Nintendo Life!:
My beloved VCR has been taken over by IGN. Oh well.
Charco commented on USA VC Update: Super Punch-Out!!:
@North99 You might like Super Punch Out then as it is a boxing game.
Charco commented on Ten Arcade Games We'd Like To See On The Virtu...:
@ 7th lutz
P.O.W. good choice!
Charco commented on Hardware Focus: SNK Neo Geo:
Yes, try Garou: Mark of the Wolves, Last Blade, Last Blade 2, Shock Troopers, Twinkle Star Sprites, Blazing Star, Waku Waku 7
Yep it was Capcom, great game. I'd love to see Cadillacs and Dinosaurs, Captain Commando an Final Fight. I wonder if games from SEGA AM2 like Daytona USA, Virtua Fighter etc would be possibilities.
No Circus Charlie?! I loved that little game. I would love to see newer arcade titles getting on there too. It's a shame though that due to licensing issues we may never see the likes of TMNT etc.
Charco commented on Capcom Mum Regarding Virtual Console Arcade Plans:
Street Fighter Alpha Series, Marvel Super Heroes, Marvel vs Capcom, Street Fighter III Third Strike (hope it's possible to emulate the CPS3 board)
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.
Ninja Gaiden (Almost identical to the NES version)
Better graphics. more colours, parallax scrolling. Not almost identical at all really.
Charco commented on Hudson Not Abandoning Virtual Console After All?:
I request the following games in alphabetical order:
Akumajou Dracula X Chi no Rondo
That is all.
Charco commented on Europe to Get World of Goo This Friday:
Was this not supposed to be released as a retail game in Europe and not on WiiWare? I don't see anything in the article confirming this.
Charco commented on Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen:
I hope a watching paint dry simulator comes to the VC soon also.
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.
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 Reggie Says Storage Issue Isn't Only For Geeks...:
It was about the most sarcastic comment I have ever made.
I think it's a silly idea. Nobody wants extra storage space. 512 megs is perfect!!!!
Charco commented on Mega Man 9 Official Box Art:
"Why must they still make the box art look like the cheesy NES ones?"
eh.....because it's funny?..................
Charco commented on Mega Man 9 Will Cost 1000 Wii Points:
I would have preferred it to be a bit lower, but I will get over it if it is a quality title.
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 fromwww.bombergames.netIt'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 Streets of Rage:
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 Cybernoid: The Fighting Machine:
No thanks. I'll go for one of the TG-16 shmups.
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 MSX Hits Japanese VC, Includes Special Options:
I hope it comes to Europe. Am I right in saying that it had the original Metal Gear 2 as opposed to the travesty that was Snake's Revenge on the NES which Hideo Kojima had no involvement in?
Charco commented on New Hudson WiiWare Details for Tetris and Bomb...:
I'm sorry, but where does it say anything about offline WiiWare 8 player?
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.
