KeeperBvK commented on Weirdness: Earthbound Designer Shigesato Itoi ...:

@WinterWarm Why wouldn't this make for a heated debate? How the hell can somebody honestly ask why anybody should give a "crap"? How about if a state in the country you live in was polluted by massiva radiation? So you wouldn't care about the fresh produce coming from that region? Or about the people trying to make a living there? Or about official information contradicting other official information?



KeeperBvK commented on Review: Mysterious Stars: The Samurai (DSiWare):

Why wouldn't they release games on DSiWare?
There are still lots of people owning a DSi but no 3DS. Plus, every 3DS owner can also download it. So DSiWare potentially reaches a far bigger audience than a 3DS eshop game.



KeeperBvK commented on Nintendo Download: 31st July (Europe):

I as a 3DS owner can't help but feel pretty disappointed. For weeks now we haven't seen a whole lot of worthwhile digital releases apart from Pokémon TCG. Especially the 3DS VC looks quite dire.
At least Wii U owners are getting some decent to great releases. I loved Rainbow Bell Adventures back on the SNES.



KeeperBvK commented on Review: Mega Man 5 (Wii U eShop / NES):

Regarding the comments here: Just to make this clear, this game isn't called MM V, it's MM 5.
The Roman numbers are reserved for the Gameboy entries, thus making it easy to distinguish between them and the NES entries. ;)



KeeperBvK commented on Review: GAIABREAKER (Wii U eShop):

@Nintenjoe64 Nano Assault looks good (haven't played it), but it hardly qualifies as a shmup. :)
Some parts definitely resemble a shmup, but others are rather railshooter sections like Sin & Punishment or Starfox. That's at least what I get from the trailer.



KeeperBvK commented on EarthBound 20th Anniversary Figures Seeing Rel...:

@WarioMan You do know that one facepalms when something stupid is being done, right? You don't facepalm when there's just something you don't like.
And I fail to see how adecision to release Earthbound figurines only in Japan where the market for such is much bigger than in any other country would be a stupid decision. It's just a sad one.
So, nothing to facepalm here.

@Stomatopod17 You've been waiting 20 years for a game that had been released in 2006?



KeeperBvK commented on Dragon Quest X Is Now Adventuring Onto 3DS:

@Tsurii897 Why would that be stupid? Might wanna reprhase what is simply your opinion. You don't like the idea of an MMO on a handheld. Good for you, but it's not stupid. You think that upgrading a PC is "bullpoopiepoodlepoop"? Well, it's not. You can perfectly keep your PC the way you bought it for years without having trouble running next to all new games. In fact you would only have to buy new parts about the same time you would have to buy an entirely new console because the old one isn't supported anymore. How is either one bullpoopiepoodlepoop?



KeeperBvK commented on Ubisoft Data Places Mario as the Second Highes...:

@Goginho "New brands" obviously refers to thos franchises having premiered in 2005 or later, while those not marked as "new brands" are older than 2005.
And what's the definition of "simulating" and "realistic" here? Call of Duty is as absurdly over the top as only thre craziest action movies from the 80s and 90s have been. Cool down, man, there's hardly anything realistic about CoD. :D



KeeperBvK commented on Review: Wario Land 4 (Wii U eShop / Game Boy A...:


Not really. An 8 seems perfectly fine to me.
I, personally, never really got into the game. Beat it on 100% on all difficulty settings, but to me it awlays felt more like a 6. But I can see the appeal, so an 8 seems ok. A 10 would be ludicrous, though. ;)



KeeperBvK commented on Review: Mega Man II (3DS eShop / Game Boy):

@sleepinglion It was released in Japan, NA and Europe. NA only got it as a download via SEGA channel, though.

Oh, and Mega Man II is not just a good Mega Man game, but a good game period. And I honestly can't see how this game is supposed to be ugly at all.



KeeperBvK commented on Review: Picross e4 (3DS eShop):

All of them are basically short episodes. When taken together they constitute a "full game", which is also reflected in the price. So why should they be rated lower than they are? Or why is this milking? It's not like Nintendo has released four full-fledged Picross games at full price. If anything, I want them to release more episodes.
