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 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.



Krambo42 commented on This Mario Kart 8 Badge Set Brings Some Extra ...:

@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!



Krambo42 commented on Mario Kart: Super Circuit is Racing Onto The W...:

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.



Krambo42 commented on Rare Donkey Kong Delights to Grace the Wii U a...:

@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).



Krambo42 commented on Rare Donkey Kong Delights to Grace the Wii U a...:

@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.



Krambo42 commented on Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow to Complete GBA Tr...:

@ZenTurtle Oh yeah, it would absolutely make more sense for handheld games to be on the current handheld. But for admittedly selfish reasons, I'm pretty glad they aren't. Though like you said, they should just release each title on each console. I absolutely agree with that.



Krambo42 commented on Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow to Complete GBA Tr...:

@ZenTurtle I don't mean to take anything away from your comment because I do feel bad for people who would prefer GBA games on 3DS...but I happen to LOVE that they are on the Wii U. Games like Metroid Fusion, Minish Cap and now the Castlevania'd much rather play them on a console. I am not much of a handheld gamer at all but I loved my GBA because the games felt like SNES games. Now that I can play them on a TV, they're perfect.

Of course, ideally they'd just be available on both the Wii U and the 3DS...but if it's just gonna be one of them, I, for one, would prefer that they stay on the Wii U. I'm loving these GBA releases on the VC.



Krambo42 commented on Nintendo 64x64: Mission: Impossible:

@Genesaur Not only what @Faruko said, but want a list of 64 great N64 games? Personally, I love 2 and think that 2-3 more were pretty fun at the time (but I have no desire to ever play them again). Seems to me that some less than great games are going to be necessary.

Anyway, though I didn't care much for the N64, I'm loving this feature. I look forward to reading the reviews/comments every day, even if most days I'm left thinking "yep...still never want to play that game/play that game again".



Krambo42 commented on Nintendo 64x64: GoldenEye 007:

Eh, I never liked this game. I wanted to! All my friends (and everybody else in the world) loved it, I'm a huge James Bond fan, you could play with 3 friends for hours...but ugh, it just never clicked with me. It's worth mentioning, though, that I've never liked first person shooters. If I were to rate it based on the amount of fun I had with it...I'd probably give it a 6/10? I realize, though, that it's a very well made and important game that just wasn't for me, so 8/10 would probably be more reasonable. Hmm...I'll split the difference and say 007/10.



Krambo42 commented on Mario Kart 64:

Nice/refreshing to see a review from somebody who didn't love the game. I've certainly had my fun with it, but I never thought it was anywhere near as good as the original. It's easily my least favorite game from the series (though I've never played Super Circuit).



Krambo42 commented on Nintendo Confirms Three More Virtual Console T...:

@UnseatingKDawg Eh, I don't care at all about games being stuck in Wii mode. I would gladly upgrade anything that does get released to the Wii U's eshop, but if I have to go into Wii mode...well, no big deal. I'm right there with you waiting for the DKC trilogy, though. I already have 1 and 2 on my SNES but I'd love to be able to play them on my Wii U instead, and I never got a chance to play 3...



Krambo42 commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer?:

I am NOT a fan of 3D Mario. The games aren't bad, but they aren't nearly as much fun for me as 2D Mario games. But's tough to pick a 2D one. They're all so darn good.

I'm actually gonna go with SMB2. There's just something about that game...



Krambo42 commented on Talking Point: A Virtual Console Revival Could...:

@DuggyFresh You don't consider a decrease from $50 to $5 pretty significant depreciation?

And yeah, Pushmo for $10 is better value than 40 minutes' worth of gaming, but:

1-you went out of your way to name really short games. There are many VC games that you'd get much more out of. I feel like most people who complain aren't only referring to these short games, but all VC games.

2-how many of those games would people actually buy even at $2 or $3?

3-just because it's 20 minutes that doesn't mean you wouldn't play it over and over again and get your money's worth. I seriously doubt that somebody would download Donkey Kong, play it once, and never touch it again. And even if they do...

4-I think you are missing the point I'm trying to make. I'm just saying, since when is $5 a lot of money? Especially for a game that you will own and be able to play as much as you want? Maybe you can get a more fulfilling experience for the same money (or less), but that's kind of the nature of video games. Some are short, some are long, some are very replayable, some you'll never touch again...that's just how it is. You're not gonna get 1,000 hours out of every game you buy.
