Luigison commented on Rumour: 3DS Could Rival PS3 and 360 in Power S...:

Doesn't the Wii have a ~729 MHz processor? Don't most cell phones today have 800 MHz to 1GHz processors? And doesn't Nintendo have a history of using existing technologies? If the answer to all of the above is yes, I don't see why the 3DS beating Wii would be much of a surprise. Also consider that computer power and technology in general are progressing at an exponential rate.



Luigison commented on Galaxy 2 Bonus DVD Detailed, Definitely Won't ...:

I think the unspoken thing here is that the DVD could be given or at least shown to someone that doesn't have a Wii and might get one after watching it. Also, I could see hardcore gamers watching it in split screen while playing if it has content showing how to beat something like a 100 coin challenge in a given time.



Luigison commented on Nintendo's Room Migration Kit Makes it Even Ea...:

If this included component cables I might bite. I'd also be int interested in a way to migrate Wii of DSi downloads to new consoles. My Wii has gotten painfully slow at open channels and when I get a 3DS I don't won't to lose my downloaded games.



Luigison commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Arcade Games on Virtua...:

I'd love to see Popeye again. I haven't played it since the 5200. Why can't companies make deals with licensed characters and games. If they'd only work out their problems it mean more money for everyone involved. DUCKTALES anyone? Also, I'd like to play some of the levels missing in the NES versions of the Donkey Kong games.



Luigison commented on Nintendo: We Don't Want To Remake Past Zelda G...:

I don't want a remakes, but updated games. For example:

  • Four Swords Adventures for Wii w/ wireless DS play
  • Link's Awakening for DSi download.

And in the Mario universe:

  • SMB3 w/ ALL 4 series e-Reader levels on DSi download.


Luigison commented on Clubhouse Games Express: Family Favorites:

Does this include all five dominoes play modes: 5 Up, Block, Draw, Muggins, and Sniff? My father only plays one type of dominoes, but with DS Download Play this may be a good way to introduce him to more.



Luigison commented on What Nintendo games do you want to see on the ...:

Popeye would be awesome. I loved playing it on Atari 5200.
I never played Earthbound, but want to give it a try.
Yoshi's Island would be great. It's may favorite "Yoshi" game.

Ducktales should have been on you list. It's one of the best games of all time though its not made by Nintendo.

Mario & Wario would be a great Nintendo games to see. The mouse controls could easily be done with the Wiimote.



Luigison commented on Silver Star Chess:

Does it have different views of the board or different pieces?
That layout looks strange to me. It'd be better to me if the pieces were not in the pseudo 3D arrangement so that they don't appear larger than the board and/or laying horizontal. I'd prefer it if the board was slightly tilted or better yet if the pieces were given more of a top down view so as not to obstruct the board.



Luigison commented on Zelda: Spirit Tracks To Appeal To a Wider Age ...:

Hmm. Maybe this means it will have more of a focus on puzzles a la the Personal Training games. Train you Link in Minutes a Day. I'd play it.

Or maybe it could rekindle some NES/SNES Zelda vib of thirty-somethings like myself. Ditto.



Luigison commented on Review: Klonoa (Wii):

I bought it the other day thinking it would be could, but it was awesome! I love it. Don't know how I missed it before, but I'm glad I have it now. Any recommendations for other Klonoa games? I've played another one on GBA, but don't remember what it was called.



Luigison commented on Take Five and Double It!:

I also agree with your perfect tens, but think that Mega Man 2 also deserves 10/10. It was my first Mega Man game and I still think it's the best Mega Man ever so my views are probably skewed. A 9.5 score would probably be appropriate, but I don't think you should go to decimals for classic games (unless showing averages of old reviews).

Also, I'm glad to see the Blue's Journey was bumped up a point, but still think it deserves 6 or 7 out of ten while ToeJam & Earl should only get 1.

Regardless, I'm glad you guys went to the 10 point system. Congrats. Keep up the good reviews. That's what counts anyway.



Luigison commented on Club Nintendo Comes To North America:

It'd be nice to see this site or VC Reviews do a run down of the VC/WW games that can get points in Club Nintendo. It'd also be cool to be able to filter games by region and Club Nintendo on the out now page.



Luigison commented on Earthworm Jim:

@Bass X0, I have several VC controllers, but they either have wires or poorly laid out buttons. I think I'll try the one posted here that looked like a Classic Controller, but was wireless. Anyone else try it? If so, is it worth the import?



Luigison commented on Earthworm Jim:

If all you have is a Wiimote then don't bother with this. It's a good game, but the Wiimote control is broken. Since they mapped fire to "A" you can't shoot up without contorting your hand or using both hands. It would have been better if they'd mapped fire to "B". Is there anyway to change controller mapping on VC titles?



Luigison commented on World of Goo is Officially the Best Wii Game Ever:

WoG and SMG are currently tied on MetaCritic with reviews scores of 97, but WoG is winning the user vote with 9.4 to 9.1.

Gamerankings has SMG winning, but if they included's 100% for WoG the games would be nearly tied.

What does have to do to be one of Game Rankings main sites?

Edit: Based on this news and how much I'm enjoying this game I'm upping the prize amount in my Mii contest to 1500 points.



Luigison commented on Review: Magnetica Twist:

This a great game with a bad control scheme. Any chance they would release an update to let you use a Nunchuck or Classic Controller? Has anyone contacted them requesting such an update? With disc based games you can return them if they are defective. This game's controls are definitely broken. How do I return it?



Luigison commented on USA WiiWare Update: SPOGS Racing:

Will WiiWare-World or VC-Reviews have someone at E3? Is so, do you have any interviews lined up? I've been to E3 twice, but never got a chance to interview anyone important.



Luigison commented on Only Geeks And Otaku Want Extra Storage On The...:

I think there is something at work here that I don't think anyone else has noticed. Obviously, if you delete games to download new ones you no longer see the deleted games in your channels. So, it's a case of out of sight, out of mind. Not seeing what was deleted may actually encourage people buy more games. If I could see the seventy or so games I've downloaded in my channels I might be less inclined to download something new. Does that make sense?



Luigison commented on Review: LostWinds:

You can beat it in about three hours, but collecting all the statues may take a little longer.



Luigison commented on Introducing WiiWare World:

Please list the number of blocks required for new WiiWare and VC games. It'd be good to know how much I need to copy and delete before going to download new games. Thanks.



Luigison commented on Wii to support BBC's iPlayer (UK only):

I understand it being free only in the UK since UK taxes pay for the BBC, but in America I'd be willing to pay some points for the channel. Has that been discussed and/or ruled out?



Luigison commented on King's Knight:

I've never played this, but it looks unique for a top down vertical shooting scroller to me. I may not get it, but at least Square is giving NA a new game on Monday.



Luigison commented on Virtual Console Top 20 - March 2008 (USA):

I downloaded and sent several gifts of SMB2LL. Now that it's out of the top 20 I image it's downloads have went down considerably. Any chance Nintendo will expand the list to the top 30 or 40? Didn't they say something about adding a rating system for games you've downloaded similar to what VC-Reviews has done? Also, what do you think are the chances they'll offer SMAS or SMAS+SMW later and offer discounts for people who have already purchase some or all of the games?



Luigison commented on World of Goo - First Impressions:

You can get the PC version of Tower of Goo and seven other of Kyle Gabler's Experimental Gameplay Project games at Target with a T-shirt for $12.99 each. I wish I'd have taken a pictures of the shirts while I was in Target because I can't find them with Google or at
