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 man...it'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.

@Sadodi I'm not saying they have to appeal to everybody. Obviously not every game appeals to everybody. But there has been a noticeable improvement in the quality of games over the last few weeks. If people don't like Mega Man, for example, that's fine. But I don't think anybody would argue that they are bad games totally undeserving of being on the VC.

@Olmectron Oh, no, don't worry about it...I didn't think you were being rude, just...I don't know...it seems to me that these last 3 weeks have been a lot closer to what people have been hoping for. Of all the times to complain, this just seemed like a weird time to me. If none of these games are for you, that's fine, but they've been releasing a good number of quality games lately. Even next week when Donkey Kong Jr. Math hits, I think we're supposed to get Mega Man X3, which is huge. We've been getting more quality, more SNES, just...more. I'd say things are looking up. Of course, we'll see if it lasts.

@Olmectron

2 weeks ago: Super Mario Kart, Mega Man 5, Cybernator
Last week: Mega Man Battle Chip Challenge, Double Dragon 2
This week: Mega Man 6, Life Force

Wow, you're hard to please. A Nintendo classic from the SNES, a well-reviewed Konami game, 2 NES Mega Man games, one of the best shooters on the NES (if not the best), a classic beat 'em up and some Mega Man battle game that people seem to love? I'd say these are 3 of the best weeks in a long time.

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

Every time I read an article about Virtual Console pricing I feel like I have stepped into some alternate dimension or something. $5 is too much for a game? Are you kidding me? And $2 would be ok? That difference of $3 is seriously what is stopping people from buying NES games on the VC? Seriously, what in the world is going on here? Even if the game is short or terrible and you never touch it again, it's $5. People spend more than that on a burger or a beer that lasts all of 2 minutes. Of course people would buy more games if they were cheaper, but the same could be said for anything.

I have a ton of VC games, and I have had no issue paying $5-$10 for any of them. It's a video game that I can play as much as I want any time I want. How is that not worth it?

If a game isn't worth $5 to you, maybe you just don't want that game.

I have absolutely no problem with how the VC is handled. I think pricing is fair, I have no interest in a subscription service, I don't really even care about crossbuy (I'd use it, but I tend to like playing console games on consoles and handheld games on handhelds, with the possible exception of GBA games which I actually prefer on the Wii U)...my ONLY complaint is that there aren't enough games.

Krambo42 commented on Feature: HD Remasters That Would Be Perfect fo...:

"This release would break the trend of one 3D Mario game per system, but as a reaction to the times and in the quest to give the Wii U a steady flow of games, it may be the moment to bend that rule."

Didn't the Mario Galaxy games already do that?

Anyway, I wouldn't buy any of these. I didn't really like the Mario Galaxy games, I don't think the Metroid games need an HD upgrade (they already look great), I loved Eternal Darkness but don't have any interest in playing it again, I never cared much for Wave Race, and, well, F-Zero would be pretty cool, but I seriously doubt they'd ever do that.

@Yorumi I don't know for sure, but I'd guess that they would. I got Japanese CCPs that work on my US Wii just fine.

Anyway, I'll get a couple of these as long as they feel good and work correctly. I'd actually rather use these than my old Gamecube controllers.

Super Mario Kart, Mega Man 5 and Cybernator in the same week...more Mega Man each of the next few weeks, and according to another article I saw, Double Dragon 2 next week and Life Force the week after that. Things are looking up!

Krambo42 commented on Super Mario Kart Speeds Onto the North America...:

@Grumblevolcano I mean, I'm no expert on licensing, but I'm pretty sure that doesn't mean the license is just in limbo. SOMEBODY must have the rights to it, right? And if nobody does, why would it be an issue?

I don't know, maybe this isn't the time or place for this conversation, I just feel like there's a way to get past this issue, if it even is the real reason it's not on the VC.

@tysonfury Good question. Honestly, that and the SNES Donkey Kong Country games are the only games that I really care about that are missing at this point. I know people talk about issues with the Super FX chip or whatever, but to that I say figure it out. It's a classic Nintendo game and it needs to be on the VC with the other classics, whatever it takes.

Krambo42 commented on The Game Boy is 25 Years Old in North America:

@3DSfan134 I don't think their reactions are that bad, honestly. I mean, as great as the Gameboy is, it does seem kinda silly when you can have something smaller with a color screen and countless games to play without cartridges. I mean, I prefer the Gameboy, but I get why a kid wouldn't. I was actually surprised they liked it as much as they did (some more than others, of course). Plus, were they even aware that it plays more than just Tetris?

Krambo42 commented on Feature: Where Are The Super Nintendo 3D Class...:

@kobashi100 I don't want SNES games on the 3DS either. I like playing console games on consoles.

As far as GBA games go...eh, I could go either way. I suppose it makes sense/would be nice for them to be on the 3DS, but for me personally, all of my favorite GBA games are better to play on a console (Metroid Fusion, Minish Cap, the Castlevania games, etc.). They're basically SNES games. Given a choice between playing them on a TV or a handheld, I'll choose the TV every time.

I don't really like getting into "major" games on the 3DS (especially on the VC). I've been loving playing short and simple original Gameboy games like Tetris, Kirby's Adventure, Super Mario Land, etc. on the 3DS...but once you get into bigger, more complex games...yeah...give 'em to me on a console.

Forget SNES 3D Classics...just get more SNES games on the Wii U's VC already. And if there are issues (licensing issues, programming issues, ANY kind of issues) with the DKC games, Star Fox or Yoshi's Island, figure them out. These are classic Nintendo games and their fans want them.
