Dreamcaster-X commented on Poll: Buying Bayonetta 2 - eShop Convenience o...:

Physical copy for me on everything I buy unless it's an e-Shop only title of course. I still can't believe they're giving away Bayonetta 1 for free & it's the best version of the game available with no screen tearing, such a deal!!!! 2 of the best action games ever made for $60!!!



Dreamcaster-X commented on Nintendo 64x64: GoldenEye 007:

I think it still plays well to this day. I recently have been going back to Perfect Dark & Goldeneye. They play so well & they're FUN!!! Why can't compnies make fun FPS's anymore?



Dreamcaster-X commented on Nintendo 64x64: Killer Instinct Gold:

@DRL If all else can try Meguiar's Scratch-X to clean the contacts with. I know it sounds bizarre but it has worked for me on countless games that I thought were dead. I saw it on a Youtube video a while back & didn't believe it would work but it did. You just use a miniscule amount and slightly rub the contacts, then wipe it off with a clean microfiber. You have to take the cart apart first though so you'd need one of those nifty screwdrivers.



Dreamcaster-X commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:

After forcing myself to complete it on my PS4 I have to say it's one of the biggest gaming disappointments in history for me. The first 2 hours were kind of cool but then it became Assassin's Creed set in a slightly futuristic era.
The main character is about as generic as they come & while the story was interesting at first it quickly became quite monotonous and the gameplay along with it. They just tossed in a bunch of ridiculous & boring side quests to make it seem bigger.
It's not the worst game I've ever played but it's surely nothing to write home about. Luckily I was able to sell it used for $45 online so it was a decent $15 rental I guess.



Dreamcaster-X commented on Video: This is a Video Game:

Aaaaawww, the joy of getting a new game as a kid. There was nothing like it, you didn't have internet back then and magazine reviews usually came out a month after the game was released at best. So most of the time you went in blind and hoped you didn't get a stinker but nothing could replace that feeling when you knew you had found a keeper or a diamond in the rough. I'm looking at you Blaster Master!



Dreamcaster-X commented on Go! Go! Kokopolo Developer Explains Why It's B...:

This has always been my big beef about an all digital future. Once these games are gone from their respective download services, they become nigh impossible to obtain. I'm still collecting old games I never got a chance to play on the old consoles so not being able to do that in the future makes it a bit sad.



Dreamcaster-X commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against Re...:

The yellowing of SNES consoles is due to certain batches of consoles having too much bromide in the mfg mix which is a flame retardant put into the plastic. Too much of it mixed with UV exposure over the years causes the yellowing.
You can turn the consoles back to their original color with a process called Retrobright, just Google it. My Super Famicom looks like brand new.



Dreamcaster-X commented on Review: Quake II (Nintendo 64):

The N64 was home to some pretty competent first person shooters back in the day. Goldeneye, The World is Not Enough, Perfect Dark, Doom 64, Turok etc....and for the time they looked & played quite well.



Dreamcaster-X commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against Re...:

I love them and have them for my Super Famicom, Genesis, & Nintendo 64. I also own tons of games for those systems as well but in cases where there are games that fetch upwards of $100 or more then NO I'm not going to "buy" them off of ebay where the market has been artificially inflated on some of these games. The game companies get ZERO profit from these old cartridges and a Flash cart lets you play tons of old games & imports that were never possible back in the days when these systems were popular. Not too mention that literally hundreds & hundreds of these games will NEVER see the light of day as re-releases due to licensing & other issues.



Dreamcaster-X commented on Hardware Review: 8Bitdo NES30 Bluetooth Contro...:

@Hy8ogen They were made for Club Nintendo Awards in Europe & Japan. I had to get mine off ebay. Just a warning they usually fetch a price anywhere from $50-$75 but they're the exact same controllers as the original Super Famicom just with a Wiimote dongle on the end. They even work with Mario Kart 8!!!!



Dreamcaster-X commented on Nintendo Reports Financial Losses As Expected,...:

Yeah I'm glad to see more people on here realizing that the Wii U is at this point a total disaster for them. I love my Wii U but I'm not oblivious to the facts.
Nintendo could still get this up to Gamecube numbers and for them that would be considered a win at this point but it's a damned bad situation to be in for them as their fans are their own worst enemies. They moan about new franchises but they don't buy them when they come out but lineup for the newest version of an old franchise. So what do you think Nintendo will keep making more of? Nintendo is a smart financial company most of the time, every company has flops but overall their track record is excellent so they know what they're doing. I just think this kills any type of hope for new franchises as they'll stick with what sells.



Dreamcaster-X commented on Sleek Metal NES Analogue Nt Now Available for ...:

While this is VERY cool, it's also just ridiculously over priced & targeted straight at hardcore collectors. Why not make something more affordable for the masses? Retro gaming is so popular right now in the U.S. but at that price only a few will get to enjoy it's benefits.



Dreamcaster-X commented on Pokkén Fighters and Pokkén Tournament Tradem...:

I've always wondered why Nintendo never made more Pokemon games for their home consoles. How friggin awesome would it be to get a console version & a portable version of the traditional Pokemon style games with cross-save capability?? I would definitely get both versions!!!



Dreamcaster-X commented on Renegade Kid Moving On To A "New Experimental ...:

This says alot about the state of the 3DS market & what will sell. Most fans just didn't seem to want an FPS on their handhelds & I probably agree. It's tough to do FPS's on handhelds. Killzone Mercenary is the best looking/playing FPS I've played on a handheld and I honestly can't really name another good FPS that has come out on a handheld. Even the few that were on PSP weren't that great. Maybe too many people have just been burned by lackluster titles in that genre to really care ll that much.



Dreamcaster-X commented on Talking Point: What We Want To See From Ninten...:

The digital argument is want digital? Then go digital, leave is who want physical with an option. I could also deal without the dual screens, it's just too gimmicky. Throw in a better screen & second analogue stick, plus a better processor & you're golden. Their portable library of games is unmatched.



Dreamcaster-X commented on Microsoft's Ken Lobb: Metroid Prime Wouldn't H...:

I wouldn't say fans didn't want a 3D Metroid. I would say that they were hesitant of it because it was a considered a hard game to nail down in 3D but within seconds of playing it & doing the ball roll you knew they had succeeded but up until that moment yeah people were extremely nervous.
