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.

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.

@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.

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.

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!!!

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.

The digital argument is ridiculous...you 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.

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.

I support gay marriage & live in a state that supports it as well but Nintendo is damned if they do & damned if they don't on this issue.
If they do include it, idiot groups like FOX news will run rampant stories about how Nintendo is dooming children with their "gay agenda" by completely manipulating & twisting the facts to their views & Nintendo just simply doesn't want to deal with this considering their heritage with games that are usually family safe. Honestly I'm even surprised the game is getting released here due to the inevitable questions that this issue as well as the pregnancy stuff could potentially raise.

Dreamcaster-X commented on Feature: The Ultimate Super Smash Bros. Direct...:

Surely Nintendo has some big surprises up it's sleeve for this years E3. Even if they don't attend again they have GOT to have some big AAA titles unannounced that are coming later this year. Let's face it, they're pretty much going it alone going forward except for the occasional Lego title & whatever scraps Ubi tosses so they gotta have some surprises left. MK8 should sell consoles, but they need to start solidifying dates for Bayonetta 2 & X!!

It's an interesting time. There's not much on the 3DS horizon that we know about & the big Wii U titles we do know of have been in development for years. I'm hoping Nintendo has some tricks up its sleeve but a game delay wouldn't be out of the norm for them. It could be catastrophic to the Wii U though for this year if Bayonetta,MK8, & X are the only games coming. Even X is a long shot at best. They NEED SSMB badly this year to get things turned around.

Still I can't wait to play MK8!!

I posted this in another article but it bears repeating for those that might have missed out on the GBA library. : )

The GBA is home to the second best library of games behind the SNES & if you count ports it would even beat the SNES. I've been playing them for about 2 years now & it seriously has one super deep library of games.
It's home to an original Zelda game, an original Metroid game as well as a hell of a remake of the first Metroid, the Advance War series, 3 of the best Castlevania games ever made, Golden Sun series, some of the best Pokemons in the series, Sonic Advance trilogy, Mario Kart Super Circuit, Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga, Mario Golf Advance, Mario Tennis Power Tour, Drill Dozer, Astro Boy, Gunstar Heroes Advance, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, Tactics Ogre, 2 Fire Emblems, Super Robot Taisen series, Ninja Five-O, Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, Wario Land 4, Mega Man Zero series, Mega Man Battle Network series, both Klonoa games, a great Lunar remake, Mother 3, F-Zero Maximum Velocity, I could go on & on. Hopefully Nintendo mines their super deep catalog on the GBA platform because it truly is home to some of the best games ever made.
