Klaarover commented on Feature: Memorable Zelda Moments:

No one cares about Midna's transformation at the end? I was annoyed by her throughout the game, but turned around when she nearly died, then got annoyed again when I got the feeling I was being played.

Then we have the fact that you become mediator in a deteriorating love affair in Majora's Mask, or some schmaltz, while the earth is about to be destroyed.

Another thing that stuck was the Jabu-Jabu fish dungeon in Zora's domain and the final 3 minutes of Ganon Tower, with the Re-Dead and all.

I've always liked becoming deity Link in MM.



Klaarover commented on Feature: 20 Years of the Super NES:

The megadrive went bye bye because of this console. I distinctly remember the sound dominating over anything else.
It had a great set of launch titles too.



Klaarover commented on Warren Spector Defends Mickey's Maligned Camer...:

"a game that takes platforming elements and adventure game elements and role-playing elements and merges them. So we couldn't tune the camera perfectly for platforming or for action adventure."

So, my guess is the Castle of Illusion comparisons go out the window.



Klaarover commented on Review: Disney Epic Mickey (Wii):

Well, I'd rather download VC DK3, which I've never finished, than buy Returns, because this particular site gives it a 10. At the very least I'll be having a vintage Rare game then, instead of a limited '3d but really 2d for ol' times sake' Gamecube-ish mess.

I hate expansive in-game tutorials, but if it feels anything like Castle of Illusion with a tad of Banjo Kazooie, I'm getting it.



Klaarover commented on Mega Man:

Damn unfair bussines going on in ice world. I rushed through it all before and didn't notice it, but the propellors off you just by landing on them. Crime glitch.



Klaarover commented on Super Castlevania IV:

People come up with titles like Lords of Thunder or Gunstar Heroes, which are supposed to be on par or better. If it's any sort of obscure action vg, then that's not to say that it's all that great.

The music today is cheesy retro, but it's like nothing else, and very layered. They're musical numbers we hear instead of the average atmospheric noises. And the final moments of the game from the clock tower onwards are crazy.
