I am Virtual.

Male, Canada

I'm all about the Virtual Console, and if Nintendo put the Virtual Boy on the Virtual Console, I'd be all for that.

HunteROB commented on Konami Denies That It Is Walking Away From AAA...:

What could they possibly do with Castlevania with no Igarashi after LoS2 happened? I guess they could outsource development to an indie developer, or else it would take some real insanity to make another 3D entry in the series. After they inevitably remake Metal Gear 1 and 2, nobody will accept a Metal Gear without Kojima - at least one starring Snake.



HunteROB commented on Talking Point: Retro Gamers Beware, PAC-MAN 25...:

Crossy Road is a much better version of classic Frogger than Konami could have possibly put out. I expect this to be the same. You make it sound as if you're out of touch, but it just sounds like you can no longer enjoy the simple pleasures of early 80's arcade games. While I could care less about Flappy Bird, I think it's a good sign that kids these days or what have you can enjoy something like Crossy Road.

Touchscreen are best to take inspiration from the simplest arcade games, because they should be the kind of thing you can play for 10 seconds and shut off if you feel like it, and still receive some level of enjoyment. Nothing can be complicated because - who are we kidding - the controls suck. Virtual joysticks and buttons are a nightmare. Nintendo would do well to follow this example instead of trying to port Super Mario Bros. straight up how it is to an iPhone.



HunteROB commented on Nintendo Disables Swapnote's SpotPass Service ...:

This really bums me out. I stopped using Spotpass with friends, thought it was fun when I did - but it was still really special to get letters from people like Miyamoto, Tanabe and Reggie. It felt personal - I had experienced nothing like that through any other way someone from the industry could communicate to me. Swapnote showed me exactly how the man who created Mario and Zelda wrote me a letter! Where else am I gonna find that?



HunteROB commented on SEGA Confirms Western Release Dates and Detail...:

Can't wait to dwize from my gwave in 3D! And also to have an even better excuse play Shinobi III over and over again, again.

Might give Streets of Rage a proper shot now, I couldn't get into the original in the Sonic Genesis Collection. II and III are some of the best beat-em ups I've ever played, though.



HunteROB commented on Nintendo Will Be "Careful" About The Artistic ...:

I don't think Twilight Princess' art style was "tame". There's a lot of things the art style affects. The enemies and Midna and everything from the Twilight realm looked pretty unique, but the human characters looked like they succeeded the looks of humans in Ocarina of Time. Skyward Sword was kind of tame, in that it was kind of middling between Wind Waker and Twilight Princess. It didn't end up looking like its own thing.

I think however, Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask were almost as realistic as it could possibly be on the hardware it came out on; with all these really unique, subtle touches that separate it from anything else trying to look realistic. I'd like to see them approach the next game like that again. Or if they could make a game that looks anything like Zelda II (in-game, not the artwork) that would be pretty awesome.



HunteROB commented on Review: Kokuga (3DS eShop):

It really sucks that the one game I'm interested in this week is the only one that won't come out in my country for some reason.



HunteROB commented on Review: Pac-Man (Wii U eShop / NES):

I honestly don't know why they bother releasing inferior ports when the Wii Virtual Console has a section for arcade games. Though Nintendo never used it themselves.



HunteROB commented on Nintendo Has A Sense Of Humour About Poor 3DS ...:

I never really have problems with the battery life on the regular 3DS. When I bring it somewhere I'm never going to play it constantly for hours at a time unless I'm on a trip. Portable games are made to be played in spurts, and there's no reason to be furious at a portable console for the same thing.
