Djungelurban commented on Nintendo Download: 15 January 2010 (Europe):

Nintendo is doing their best to kill people's interest in their console... Last time I started it up was when I got Kirby's Adventure as my compensation game... And that was almost 2½ weeks ago now... And before that... I don't even remember... Seriously Nintendo, what the hell are you doing...

Wouldn't you prefer a release of the Arcade version of Chase HQ then? Who knows, maybe they'll throw in some Wii Wheel support aswell! Haha... :D

WHHHAAAT! O_o It's harder? I thought the SNES version is plenty hard myself, don't want it harder than that... So I don't know... I like it's level design, but yeah... Don't know about this...

Djungelurban commented on Feature: For Your Consideration - LostWinds: W...:

Not even the WiiWare game of the year... I mean, it's a well crafted game for the most part, but the controls are just too damn imprecise and I can't seem to find motivation to go back to it and finish it up... There are much better games out there, for example Icarian is leagues above it...

Djungelurban commented on Mega Man 10 Heading to WiiWare!:

This is just fantastic news! :D Ok, so I would have preferred a MegaMan X9 (with the look and gameplay going back to the SNES days) but this is the next best thing. Can't wait to play through it!

@Corbie
Haha! :D That would be one weak reason for banning someone... Can't handle criticism now can you? That's rather Stalinistic of you... :P (points towards Gradius and Niki reviews)... You know, I'm never gonna let you forget about that Gradius score... ;)

While I'm far from prepared to call this one "good" (wouldn't be the first time NL flubbed up one of their reviews), it is nice to see that JV is capable of doing something other than broken piece of crap...

No worries, you'll love NyxQuest I'm certain. Just remember thought it's not so much of a platformer as it is a platforming action puzzle adventure... I mean, if you're expecting a jump and stomp game (or Kid Icarus), you're not gonna get that...

Djungelurban commented on WiiWare Demo Program Proving Successful:

For the record, in Sweden all five games are charting and has been pretty much since release of their respective demos. In fact, all of them are in the top 15 (technically top 10). Yay for Icarian/NyxQuest!

Djungelurban commented on WiiWare Demo Service Now Available!:

Hey, already downloaded all of them (even though I've owned Icarian since launch) for archival purposes and am currently trying them all out (even Icarian, just cause it's awesome). Didn't love BTB, but I was expecting that. Challenge oriented games aren't my cup of tea really. Right now it's time for FFCC:MLAAD, even though I'm almost 100% certain I'm not gonna be getting it due to all the DLC crap.

Djungelurban commented on Phalanx Remake Coming to WiiWare:

After looking at the pics... I'd say that's a fairly loose definition of the word "remake"... It's more like the exact same game but with graphics filter thrown into the mix kinda haphazardly. In fact, if I open up Phalanx in BSNES and pick the HQ2 filter I get something that actually looks a lot like those screenshots. Seems their ambition level isn't too high... Hopefully they'll sort out the audio issues atleast, the game has a tendency to drop sound effects pretty much constantly which is pretty bad considering it doesn't have too many sound effects to begin with.

Djungelurban commented on Phalanx Remake Coming to WiiWare:

AH! I played through it on emu a few months ago... It's actually not bad, it's just that it's pretty damn EVIL at times... I made excellent use of the rewind button to get through that game... If they make a difficulty that's more manageable for people like me I'll definitely consider it...

Djungelurban commented on Top 20 WiiWare Games in USA (11th Nov):

Do people really want it? I mostly do the Swedish chart for my own personal enjoyment and personally, my interest in VC games is limited (much rather buy a game for its original system if I can) so I haven't felt the need to. And overall, very little happens on it (well, apart from the last few weeks due to the compensation scheme). But if people are interested in a Swedish VC chart then I guess I could do it...

@Bigby
Atleast they say they're still gonna air the back 9 episodes of the season. Guess that's something...

Djungelurban commented on Jackal ReBirth - The Next Konami ReBirth Game?:

@Tranguz
I asked about this about half a year ago and got a reply which essentially said "stop asking god dammit" (only in corp speak of course)... So no, don't think it'll happen. Personally I gave up waiting and bought a cart instead but if you want it, and don't have access to a SNES, next time you're down to 0 Wii points... Switch region temporarily to Australia, buy 1000 points, download it from there and then switch back. Sure, you'll end up losing 200 points (since the Wii points won't transfer between EU and AU) but the game is worth it.

@Golgo
Detective work yeah... This was posted on Kotaku a few days ago already... But yeah, didn't see this coming... Jackal? It's a okish game I guess... But from my perspective, there are more suitable and worthy titles to "rebirth"... Like for example Salamander or Goemon... But ok, best of luck to you, hopefully it'll turn out great.

@Egg miester
What?? Sure you didn't forget your meds today and started to hallucinate? The Monkey Island games are doing pretty poorly in the US compared to... Other places. I mean, only one episode charts right now and that one was released 9 days ago... So of course it's gonna chart. At the same time, Contra is in it's 9th week of release, in fact its performance thus far has been in line with MegaMan's performance in the US, and all in all it's still ahead of previously mentioned Monkey Island epi... So why are you complaining about that? And FFIV is in it's 23rd week! If that one wasn't falling I'd suspect there was something fishy going on considering its episodic nature. Sure, Driift Mania is falling but really... I'm not gonna knock the quality of the game, but there are a lot of Sprint clones out there... Besides, it's doing better elsewhere in the world...

And also, Monkey Island is a worthy game... The WiiWare version may be buggy, but the game is still good...

@Sneaker13
Wait... Blades of Steel is selling in the Netherlands?! That's... odd... I mean, hockey in Holland... Let me put it this way... A semi-crappy second liner in the third tier league in Sweden can quite easily go to Holland and play in your top tier league and average something like 3 points a game... Hockey ain't that big down there so yeah... I'm a bit surprised by that...

And Sexy Poker holding on strong too I see... That's just swell... And Lit in 17th?! That's just stupid...

Djungelurban commented on Nintendo Download: Zombies, LIT, Ghost Mansion...:

Ok, then let me put it this way: Here in Sweden they are two COMPLETELY different things that should never be mixed up.

And in fact, I would call secular Christmas and religious Christmas to different things seeing as they celebrate different things. I couldn't give a rats ass about the made up birthday of some kind of guy that never existed, but I still celebrate Christmas. Isn't the substance in a celebration what defines the celebration? If not, then why aren't Hanukkah considered the same thing as Christmas? Halloween and All Hallows' Eve doesn't share a name anymore so that doesn't seem to be important.

And still, in the case of Christmas, the way that different Christmases are being celebrated is similar. However, All Hallows' Eve and Halloween are celebrated are completely different. The only similarties these days are the very general theme of death.

Djungelurban commented on Nintendo Download: Zombies, LIT, Ghost Mansion...:

@Gabbo
Yeah, these days they aren't anymore. Whatever Halloween might have been in the first place, it has been twisted and corrupted into a commercialized mess, so much as it essentially is a completely separate holiday. Point in fact, here in Sweden we do actually celebrate Halloween too, to a degree atleast. But that's next weekend. This weekend is All Hallows' Eve and they are as far as anyone is concerned two completely different things that should never been mixed up.

Djungelurban commented on Nintendo Download: Zombies, LIT, Ghost Mansion...:

Yes, definitely worth getting... I don't know about these controller issues that plagued the NTSC version but after about 5-10 minutes getting used to the controls it's all been pretty intuitive ever since. So I guess they really did fix it, whatever the problem was.

Djungelurban commented on Feast Your Eyes On This Castlevania: ReBirth F...:

This is no remake, it's a complete reimagining. I might not be super familiar with Castlevania the Adventure, but I'm sure the first level is not structured like that. The games biggest problem is that the controls sucks balls and it's horribly outdated but why change the level structure? Nothing wrong about that... Doesn't mean that this is a bad game obviously but I think I would have preferred a straight remake.

Djungelurban commented on Excitebike: World Rally Coming To WiiWare:

So this is only the exact same game with a shiny new cover? Yeah... I'm gonna pass... I understand the nostalgia factor, but the conceptual difference between Excite Bike and something like Family Slot Car Racing isn't exactly ginormous... Maybe it's just me, but when I play racing games... I kinda like being able to turn (Unirally is the obvious exception of course)...

Djungelurban commented on Nintendo Download: Shinobi, Brain Training, Co...:

Really, Nintendo should just stop trying to regulate the release schedule and just let the developers decide this for themselves. Sure, it might get a bit chaotic and some weeks we might end up batting zero but that is to be preferred to how things are now. And if they are that desperate to not have any holes in the schedule, how about they filling in those holes with their own titles if that's what they are concerned about...
