Krambo42 commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

@Genesaur I kinda doubt that the fact that the entire Metroid Prime trilogy (which is three games and costs at least $50 in disc form) will sell more on the eshop at $10 than Metroid: Other M (which is just one game, and you can easily find it for about $10-$15) would at $10 or possibly $20 would tell them much of anything. But it doesn't matter because I'm pretty sure they know that people preferred the Prime games anyway.

Also, Other M isn't garbage. Prime's way better, though.

With the Wii U being backwards compatible, I really don't see what the point is with the majority of Wii games. Yeah, some games are rare/expensive, some people prefer to be all digital...but I don't know. For the most part, for most people, is this really THAT exciting? I mean, games like Kirby's Epic Yarn, Wario Land: Shake It, Other M and Resident Evil 4...you can get physical copies for less than the $20 these will be on the eshop!

Having said that, $10 for Metroid Prime Trilogy next week is a steal.

@SuperMalleo People often cite the FX chip as the reason why those games aren't coming to the VC, but has that ever officially been stated? I'm not saying you're wrong, but I've never seen anything to make me think there's no chance of them being released on the VC. Personally, I'm holding out hope for Star Fox.

Krambo42 commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo 64:

I kinda hate the N64. OK. Ocarina of Time is incredible. Shadows of the Empire is a personal favorite of mine. But honestly, I could do without the rest. I never liked Mario 64 (and still don't like 3D Mario to this day). Mario Kart 64 and Star Fox 64 weren't nearly as much fun as the SNES games. Kirby 64 was boring. GoldenEye and Perfect Dark...eh. I hate FPSes. I could go on. Sure, I had some fun with some multiplayer sports titles at the time...All Star Baseball, NFL Blitz, the WCW/WWF games...but man, those don't hold up at all. If they ever announce Shadows of the Empire hitting the VC or being remade, I will disconnect and sell my N64 immediately. It's the only reason I still have it.

@sinalefa Well, I've never had any issue spending my coins, but I suppose I can see how somebody would struggle if they buy more games than me. Still, I'd rather get a game I've never heard of that got mediocre reviews just to try it out than a pack of pins, shoelaces, posters, etc. I mean, maybe I'd like it! The fact that we like to play games is the reason we have coins to spend in the first place.

@ericwithcheese2 Yeah, to each his own is absolutely right. I'm glad that these will make some people very happy. But I just get confused by all of the people who do nothing but complain about NA's Club Nintendo. They're like, insulted because Nintendo tries to give them, video game fans, free video games. Sure, some people are collectors...but they're gamers as well.

Krambo42 commented on Review: Mario Kart Super Circuit (Wii U eShop ...:

I had never played this game before, but Super Mario Kart is, after all these years, STILL my favorite game in the series, so I went ahead and bought this (before reading this review) because I thought it looked like an actual sequel to SMK. I'm so glad I did! It's exactly what I've been wanting all these years! More Mario Kart that feels like the original! It is pretty hard to look at on my huge TV, though, ha. But that's ok!

Sweet! I was hoping they'd release this. I've never played it, but Super Mario Kart is still my favorite MK game after all these years, and this looks more like that one than any other game in the series. I'm excited to check it out.

Krambo42 commented on Video: The Top 10 Mario Platformers, As Select...:

The list is about what I expected. But it's far from what MY list would be. I dislike every single 3D Mario game. Plus, no Mario 2 (my favorite) anywhere in the top 10? Bogus. Oh well. SMW is a solid choice for #1, so I'm happy to see that, at least.

Krambo42 commented on Feature: Five 'New Things' We Want in Super Sm...:

There is nothing wrong with DLC for a game like this or MK8 as long as the game feels complete when it first comes out (which seems to be the case here). New stages and characters that are released later keep the game fresh and exciting.

If MK8 had all of these courses and characters that are coming out soon since day 1, people would be just as tired of playing them as they are everything else in the game. Instead, there's gonna be renewed interest in the game next month, and then again a few months later. I really don't see how that's a bad thing.

I suppose the best argument would be that they could at least make the DLC free, and yeah, that'd be nice, but it's not realistic. Nintendo's pricing for the MK8 DLC is very reasonable, I think.

@CaptMcCloudAran If these DKC games do, in fact, come to NA, the only SNES game missing that I really care about is Star Fox. Though, I'd like it if the Super Star Wars games and Indiana Jones' Greatest Adventures could come to the Wii U's VC so I wouldn't have to go into Wii mode for 'em (not a huge deal if they don't, though).

@ryanator008 Yeah, it seemed weird to me that they announced two of the Castlevania games in separate weeks but they are being released on the same day...I kinda got the feeling that Nintendo told them "no...that week is for us". At least, I hope that's what's going on here.

Krambo42 commented on Nintendo 64x64: Mario Golf:

This is a pretty fun game (every Mario Golf game is), but I would never choose to play any of them over NES Open which, after all these years/sequels is still my favorite. The simplicity...the music...the pacing...yeah. That's the Mario Golf game for me.
