The guy seems to wiggling his control stick to activate the mini-turbos, which is a really good sign. Maybe he explicitly says that's what he's doing at some point, but I'm grinding coffee while I watch this so I can't really hear.



Dr_Corndog commented on Ex-Castlevania Chief Koji Igarashi Is Grateful...:

Metroid is my favorite series, but other than Rondo of Blood, I've never played a Castlevania game through. That means I have at least seven Metroid-style Castlevanias to look forward to when I finally get around to it. That's why I love retro gaming.



Dr_Corndog commented on Little Inferno Has Sold A Million But Gamers D...:

Absolutely loved World of Goo, and I was disappointed when I read the reviews and people's descriptions of what kind of "game" Little Inferno is. I might download it sometime when it goes on sale, though, just to experience it.



Dr_Corndog commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

I found this sentence to be interesting: "Gaming has grown up a lot in the past few years, and we're now tackling some pretty mature topics in the titles that we play." Considering this game is about as immature as it gets.



Dr_Corndog commented on Nintendo Releases an Extended Gameplay Trailer...:

I'm a huge fan of the original Yoshi's Island, and I just can't get excited for this. For one, "New" seems to be Nintendo's code word for "derivative and bland" (based on the NSMB series), and these trailers aren't doing anything to dissuade me from that idea. But also, the original Yoshi's island had some of the most endearing graphics of any game out there; New Island's graphics are just hideous.

What would be added, though?

I guess it would be nice to have MM9 and MM10 in some kind of physical form, but those are available to download on every console. Mega Man & Bass would make a nice addition, too.

It's questionable whether it's even worth adding the two MMX games not already on that collection (particularly X7).
The MMZero collection already exists.

Maybe they should just make good on that GB collection that was supposed to be released on the GBA.



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

Seriously, though, this is one of the reasons I don't get too hung up over online play on consoles. Besides, this, Nintendo's infrastructure tends to be poor, and Sony and Microsoft both make you pay for what's a free (and better) service on PC.
