Lemmy_the_Koopa commented on Shovel Knight:

Won't happen that this is not coming to Nintendo hardware. It was funded on Kickstarter where you could acquire also Wii U and 3DS keys. Also they want to release the game on Steam, 3DS and Wii U at once (well at least during the same week). Currently they are into submission mode, and if one party rejects the code, than everybody else has to wait. Also they would need a release slot for that the same time and that isn't easy to pull off, too ;p

Taken from their last Kickstarter update

"FOR SHOVELRY! After near endless days of bleary-eyed internal testing and bug fixing, we opened this week by creating a gold master candidate of Shovel Knight! That means we have a potentially finished version of the game which is ready to go live!
Now we are in the submission and certification process for platform holders. That’s when external teams verify that the game works as expected. If everything checks out on their side, then they’ll prepare the game to go live on their digital storefront and get back to us with a true, solid release date.

But! If they uncover any issues that somehow slipped by our team then the game will “bounce” back to us for a fix! So… at this point, even the Yacht Club is playing the waiting game. "

Lemmy_the_Koopa commented on Studio Walljump Interview: Liight:

Nice game. Not an instant buy, but I look into this. I think it's pretty neat to get a full sound when all targets ar lit, dood and this adding up target by target. It's like an instant reward for doing something right!



Lemmy_the_Koopa commented on New Swords & Soldiers Instructional Video:

This instruction video looks hilarious for itself. Explaining every obvious parts etc.

Love it. It raises the interest in the game and also gives a short glimpse what awaits you if you get the game, without giving too much away, dood

The Demos on the Nintendo channel either get updated at the same time or sometimes on a Monday...

Thanks! ... and in the waiting for Mega Man 9 (I hope it will be this friday, PLS!) I will play a lot of Shining Force



Lemmy_the_Koopa commented on Helix Coming To Europe This Friday:

Helix, dunno, spent 800 points on Shining Force yesterday and was hooked to my Wii over 5 hrs (whoa!) .The rest of my 1.200 points goes to... Mega Man 9 and Protoman Pack... it better hit the shopping channel this friday, at least Mega Man 9.

For Helix... nah... dunno about those music games, they never attracted me... though I might get it if I can spend my last 200 Wii Points for it, on the other hand this wouldn't be fair to Helix, even if it doesn't appeal to me.

Even it might have been asked a 1.000 times, I am new to this 'download when just added stuff'-mambo-jambo. When will the update hit the shopping channel?



Lemmy_the_Koopa commented on Review: Mega Man 9 (WiiWare):

WANT! I just played Rockman World / Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge as a kid, lend it from a friend. Found at for 5,00 € at a store (used) and picked it up. I constatly play it during Lunchbreak and managed to arrive at Wily Stage 2...

I guess I just pick up a Wii Points Card today, just to get sure, to have enough Wii Points for this gem to arrive. Guess I will get Protoman, too and spend the last Wii Points (I have some left, I guess...) for Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.



Lemmy_the_Koopa commented on IGA: 2D WiiWare Castlevania Is The Right Approach:

Well these are just examples, so don't rate on how will they do. Also you would have to look past of 'What does it do in 3D." Moreover, what would a 2D brawler of DMC will let it look it cool and hard enough. etc. etc.

A 2D brawler of DMC (if we just stick with that example) wouldn't be able to copy each and everything from 3D into 2D, that would be a fail by the start, because then you just pretend something. They have to redesign each and everything.

Maybe in the end some IPs would end up in a different genre. DMC as 8 Bit RPG or Fighter or whatsoever.

Sure the nostalgia feeling plays a big role in there, but maybe some company will say "Well, we earned a lot of money out of the franchise and retro is the new way to do it and 'cause of this we could take this risk to maximize our win."

But to step away from the DMC Brawler idea, I think Crash Bandicoot would do very well as a 8-Bit game. I could imagine that and it haven't to be 2D Sidescrolling...

There are plenty enough titles... but as said before, time will tell, however I am really looking forward to this kind of alternate way of presentation of newer series.



Lemmy_the_Koopa commented on IGA: 2D WiiWare Castlevania Is The Right Approach:

Well I hope none of these games fail, since it would be the end of 'retro'.

What I would like to see is a new IP redone as it had been there before in an 8-Bit / 16-Bit world.

For example: Make a Soul Calibur Game in 16-Bit Graphics in 2D. Like the classic Street Fighter. It would be some kind of "What if we had the idea to create this game in the past, how would it be turning out."

Or Devil May Cry as a Side Scrolling Beat 'em up etc. etc.!

There are plenty of games out there that could be turned into 'retro' without having any roots to go back to.

However I think this is just a matter of time when the first approaches to step back with a game, instead of a "HD Remix" or a "ReArmed" ver. or how the call it alltogether, will be made. :3



Lemmy_the_Koopa commented on Soldier Blade:

Bought it as my first VC game and my first real investment into Shooter.

Like it, that I can easily pick this game up and play a couple of minutes. Also It's very challenging for me, however got to Level 3 .. ugh!

Thanks for the reviews, the nice comments and the hints on your page...

This gives me a good time while waiting for my grrrl to get ready...



Lemmy_the_Koopa commented on USA VC Update: Sonic (Master System) and Splat...:

... and I guess, when you enter the Shopping channel and check the newest added games a NoA representee will pop-up on your screen, yelling "IT'S A ME! SURPRISE!" at you.

Pity everyone hoping for some scheduled release, but being led down by NoA.
