Kolzig commented on Mega Man X3:

Judging by the previous entries, European release for this is in December? I wonder what takes so long?



Kolzig commented on Nintendo Download: 28th August (North America):

Here's hoping the European release of Azure Striker Gunvolt isn't that far away.
I bet Europe will have none of that Capcom sale, Atlus and Capcom just don't do sales in Europe like they constantly do in North America.



Kolzig commented on Nintendo Confirms Two More Virtual Console Tit...:

Hopefully before the end of the year would come N64 and Gamecube VC for Wii U and N64, GBA and DS VC for 3DS.

If Nintendo wants to keep printing money, then these are a sure way to do that.

Still waiting for that TVii for Europe as well, and folders, and proper cross platform support and proper unified not tied to single hardware account system and messaging system between friends.

We have come a long way, but lets go all the way Nintendo, right?



Kolzig commented on Wii U Shooter Splatoon Almost Starred Mario As...:

The best decision possible was to not put Mario in the game.

Fresh new original IP without the old pressure of Mario is good for Nintendo. Especially since this game is from the young guard of developers at Nintendo.



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

There are just too many stupid people in the internet commenting.

I see too much of this every day with things like this Itoi case, Anita Sarkeesian's case and Zoe Quinn's case. People harrassing good persons without a reason and just being mean to them.

I just today discussed this with some colleagues that there should be an IQ test before people can open their browsers and twitters etc.

Too many dumb people commenting on matters that they don't even understand or want to understand.



Kolzig commented on Video: This Moody Trailer for The Fall Sets Th...:

If the pricing is the same as on PC, definitely buying it for 7€ when it gets the European release in the coming weeks.

I hope this game does well, the reviews have been glorious so far. It seems to be a 3-5 hour game, and the first part of a trilogy of games.



Kolzig commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against Re...:

I think they are a vital way of preserving the history of our hobby.

Definitely that, especially what I've seen in our local retro club and at the semi yearly events that we arrange, people are loving the fact that we can easily introduce them to old gaming consoles and old games, and the SD card functionalities brought by amazing modding people are a big help with that. I've seen for example Commodore 64's and Amigas and Turbografx consoles that can be easily made super computers with the sd card mods that enable you to easily have the whole library available since there is no legal way to even get the classic games anymore. Don't even start about the failed experiment with C64 and Wii VC.

Same thing also with console like Sega Saturn, it had amazing games that most people have never even heard about especially since Sega doesn't want to put even small effort to re-release the games on modern platforms. That's why it is incredibly important work that some people make mod chips for such old consoles like the Saturn. Those people responsible should deserve a medal or something for their work.

What I hate the most in modern retro business is people cashing in with old games in eBay etc when they ask for 100-500 euros/dollars/pounds for some old game that never was worth that much.

What I personally want is that more and more people, especially the younger generation, since I'm +30 already, would know about what games and consoles there were in the past.

Nintendo is doing the good with the VC, although the content is way way less than what it should be and the pricing has been totally wrong ever since the Wii days. It's still wrong even in 3DS and Wii U eShops. The prices should be a lot lower.



Kolzig commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

I'm loving these type of news.

Especially that part where it says we will get loads of new tracks and Blue Falcon kart!

Now next we need is that Nintendo finally announces for 2015 either F-Zero GX HD for Wii U or an entirely new F-Zero game for Wii U. We the gamers demand that.



Kolzig commented on 3DS Homebrew Channel Reportedly in Final Stage...:

"For those that object to region locking, it is planned for the channel to allow 3DS carts from other regions to be playable on any system."

If that would really happen then the creator of this program would be made the the best person on game business ever and should be given a medal or something.

Never have supported region locking and never will. If Nintendo is dumb at something then it's the region locking. They went in handheld business from freedom to jailed environment for no good reason.

There would be no need for a program like this if Nintendo would get their head out of their *** and release an official software update that removes the region locking.



Kolzig commented on Retro Studios Ramps Up Recruitment for a Varie...:

New IP would be amazing, new F-Zero would be just perfect and Metroid would also be acceptable since these guys know how to make a quality top notch Metroid game.

I just feel like they are working on more than one project.



Kolzig commented on The Sega Genesis is Now 25 Years Old:

Time to get Mega Drive on Wii U VC.

All that was on Wii VC should come to Wii U VC, plus new platforms like Saturn&Dreamcast&Gamecube and more arcade games like Final Fight and Art of Fighting etc.



Kolzig commented on Sonic Boom Games Now Have Their Official Europ...:

In additional to horrible character designs they had to go and include the worst and most pointless Sonic character ever created, Shadow the Hedgehog.

Metal Sonic is a nice addition in a way, but Shadow just puts me off of even thinking of buying this. Good that the old Sonic cycle is not going strong with this project as at least I don't have any expectations about this one.

Since it's not even releasing in Japan, this can be considered as a spinoff side project.



Kolzig commented on The Virtual Boy is 19 Years Old, Probably Hasn...:

All the Virtual Boy games should come to 3DS Virtual Console. Have them have the crazy red&black coloring, but also do a palette swap and have other color option for example white and black or green and black in the style of Gameboy.

These games need and extra life and on 3DS VC these would be perfect!



Kolzig commented on Nintendo Download: 14th August (Europe):

Child of Light and AssCreed 4 look the most interesting in that list.

Also of course if some have not yet got ZombiU or Rayman Legends, with these prices you definitely should.



Kolzig commented on Shovel Knight Sales Numbers Revealed by Yacht ...:

Very much interested in Shovel Knight, the PC version is tempting since it already is available. We will unfortunately have to wait eternity until the Wii U & 3DS European releases come available, why not just release the English language version for Europe and patch the other languages in later?



Kolzig commented on Capcom Is Remastering The GameCube Resident Ev...:

Kind of ok idea to remaster it, but completely dumb decision from Capcom to not make a version of this on the platform that had in the past the original remaster version.

I mean Namco and Soul Calibur II HD not on Wii U was insane since it was so far ahead of the other version back in the day. Zelda included SC2 on GC was The Best version of that game.

Capcom really doesn't know what they are doing.



Kolzig commented on Hyrule Warriors DLC Floodgates Opened with Alt...:

Club NIntendo is such a pain. This will be unevenly and badly distributed in Europe that will just leave a lot of people feel disappointed.

Or is it possible to make a UK Club Nintendo account and get the DLC if you live in Nordic countries?



Kolzig commented on James Pond: Robocod Reboot No Longer Coming To...:

Not surprised, System 3 has been scaling down also all other efforts like Putty Squad which they already confirmed in Facebook a long time ago that it's not coming to Wii U.

It really sucks. Putty Squad doesn't even look fun and I have no special feeling about it, but James Pond 2: Robocod is one of my most favourite games on Commodore Amiga. I even went and bought the GBA version back in the day.



Kolzig commented on Another Hyrule Warriors Live Stream is Schedul...:

I wish Bayonetta and Xenoblade will get this much coverage when those are close to be released. The Wonderful 101 should've gotten also this much, even one dedicated Nintendo Direct to that would've been awesome.



Kolzig commented on Captain Toad Won't Be Tracking Treasure In Eur...:

Sadness that Nintendo of Europe is so lacking.
In times like these I miss Rock Paper Shotgun's No Oceans campaign.

If one is postponed then all regions should be postponed until all regions can release at the same time.

This was definitely the game I wanted to play this Christmas the most. Europe always gets shafted and they don't even tell a reason why it's constantly like that.



Kolzig commented on Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty!:

Looking like a great remake, hopefully the Wii U version release is not far away since the first version for other platforms have been released already.



Kolzig commented on Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD:

It's been over a year since the announcement of the Wii U version, I wonder where is it, nothing was displayed in this year's E3?
