Corbs commented on Review: Sengoku 3 (Wii Virtual Console / Neo Geo):

Don't worry, I'll be back at E3 next year. Just took a year off. And don't get me wrong, I love Sengoku 3, but I felt like giving it a 9 might be a bit too high. Still worth a try for beat 'em up fans, no doubt there.

Corbs commented on The Godfather of Video Games Is Baffled By The...:

Nolan Bushnell is a big reason we're playing the games that we're playing right now. So to completely discount his opinion or write him off as a 'crazy old fool' might be a bit rash. Is he always right, of course not, I think he's proven that in the past, but this guy commands respect with us old guys because we know what he did for video gaming.

Don't dismiss this game prematurely. It's got a lot of meat on the bone. I played a lot of it and still barely scratched the surface.

Corbs commented on 20 Extra Mutant Mudds Levels on The Way to eSh...:

These levels will appear just as they do in the PC release. There will still be the secret levels doors, but these CGA-themed Grannie levels have their own doors also hidden within each level. And some are very tricky to reach. Plus you guys gotta play them, since I designed 10 of the Grannie levels. :D

Corbs commented on Feature: Our Favourite Super Mario Games:

I've flip-flopped between Super Mario World and Super Mario Bros. 3 so many times over the years, I've actually lost count. But as of right now, Super Mario World is my top pick! :D

Corbs commented on Commodore 64 Celebrates 30th Birthday:

This was the item that tided me over between my Atari 2600 and my NES. Great little computer. It also introduced me to role-playing games, something I still love to this very day. Happy Birthday Commodore 64! :D

Corbs commented on Reggie Fils-Aime: Fanbase Demands Are 'Insatia...:

Gamers are gamers. We always want more. But let's face it, the Nintendo press conference was fairly lacking, at least for the more hardcore Nintendo fans. It just was. Wii Fit, SING, and Nintendo Land is all well and good for roping in casual fans, but the diehard Nintendo fans will always wants the big guns and that's not likely to ever change. These "insatiable" fans are the very ones that have stuck by Nintendo over the past couple of decades so I'd watch what I said about them if I were Reggie. LOL :D

Corbs commented on Review: Rayman Origins (3DS):

Yeah once you've played it on Vita, it's tough to go the 3DS version. But for those who don't own a Vita or one of the home consoles, this is a very fine alternative. :D

Corbs commented on First Impressions: Rayman Legends:

I agree Wolf. It will be so great to see Nintendo games in HD. And there were some good Wii U games on show at E3. So I'm happy and excited about the system now. :D

Corbs commented on First Impressions: Rayman Legends:

The graphics are a pretty big step up. Maybe not what we might have expected, but still a pretty big leap up from PS3 and Xbox 360. I'm satisfied with it. :D

Corbs commented on First Impressions: Rayman Legends:

There will be a single-player campaign. They were just showing this particular mode off to highlight the Wii U controller and what could be done with it. And the game should be fully controllable with the Wii U GamePad in single-player mode, but I have to say, that Pro Controller felt quite great with this game. :D

Corbs commented on Preview: Wii U Hands-On:

It did feel fairly solid. Has a nice weight and balance to it. All the buttons and sticks feel solid too. I was pretty impressed with the Wii U controller overall.

Corbs commented on Preview: Wii U Hands-On:

Actually, the only way to play New Super Mario Bros. U on the floor was using the older Wii Remote turned on its side. Only the second player placing blocks was able to use the Wii U controller with the touchscreen.

Corbs commented on Preview: Wii U Hands-On:

You know I was actually very impressed with the Pro Controller. Very comfy. Not too heavy and not too light. Button placement is a bit odd right at first, but after a few minutes of Rayman Legends, it felt great. And I'll have Wii U game impressions coming up VERY shortly. :D

Corbs commented on Preview: Wii U Hands-On:

The cord was awfully thick to be something that connected to a Wii Remote or Wii U Pad. But as I said, it could have been used to tie the controller down. Lots of sneaky hands on those babies. :D

Corbs commented on Preview: Wii U Hands-On:

It was hard to tell. The Pro Controller they had on the units were connected by a wire, but that could have been a tethering cord to tie the thing down so people didn't run off with it. Having said that, the wire coming out of the back of the Pro Pad made me believe it was wired.

Corbs commented on Preview: Wii U Hands-On:

The Wii U controller feels really good actually. It's not too big at all. But some games require you to hold it with just your left hand and use your right hand to use the touchscreen to help the other player out in NSMBU and Rayman Legends and that can be tiring on your hands. But for regular use, the Wii U GamePad feels great.

Corbs commented on Preview: Wii U Hands-On:

Yeah that was me in the Renegade Kid video. Jools and I hung out most of the time in LA at the show. And the buttons offer a very soft depress and soft rebound. Didn't bother me one bit, but some people prefer a much more "clicky" depress with a bit more feedback. Like maybe Pix. :D

And I got to actually use the Pro Controller and it looks and feels very much like an Xbox 360 controller in many ways. So if it did get a re-design to make it less like a 360 controller, it wasn't a success. :D
