marktheshark commented on Vampire Crystals:

I've played the demo of this. My impressions:

Graphics and sound are pretty underwhelming. Some sound effects don't have as much oomph in them as they should. To be fair, though, it's a Wiiware game.

When you first play the game, you have to create a profile, and then pick a character. I don't know if you can change characters though. There's around several characters to pick from, around 4-6.

To clear a stage, you must kill a certain number of zombies as well as collect a certain number of crystals. They don't change up the objectives in the demo version at all. I'm not sure about the full version though as I haven't played that yet. It can get pretty tedious for some.

There are 4 stages in the demo version. The fourth stage has a boss fight and the demo ends soon after the fight starts.



marktheshark commented on Bomberman Hero:

HUH! There's finally a 3rd party N64 game coming to the VC?!

(can't believe that some people would rather wait 4 years for some 3rd party N64 games to come to VC rather than to get the carts.)



marktheshark commented on Chōtetsu Brikin'ger:

Hey guys, this is actually the cancelled MVS/AES version of Ironclad according to a Neo Geo message board so don't be surprised if the music isn't as good as the NGCD version. Fortunately, the MVS/AES version was probably complete.



marktheshark commented on Chōtetsu Brikin'ger:

Now to wait for Zintrick, Crossed Swords II (not until Crossed Swords I comes out!), & maybe Samurai Shodown RPG (will obviously be JPN VC exclusive).



marktheshark commented on Review: Namco Museum: 50th Anniversary (GameCube):

Very true. If compilations lack the extras, they should have more games to make up for it. Around 30 games in total for the compilation at least.

Also, why is it that Namco never puts in their more recent arcade games like Tekken, Ridge Racer, The Outfoxies, Final Furlong, Soul Edge, & Time Crisis for example?



marktheshark commented on Japanese Monster Hunter 3 Sales Slump:

Not only Kotaku & most other media sites think the Wii is doomed, they WANT the Wii to be doomed.

Hmmmm. Is that Gears of War 2 that I'm seeing alongside Monster Hunter 3 in the bargain bin?

@ Super Smash Bros. Fan1999

Seriously? Then what about X-Men: Children of the Atom, Marvel Super Heroes, X-Men vs. Street Fighter, Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, MVC 1, X-men: Mutant Apocalypse & Marvel Super Heroes: War of the Gems? If MVC 2 can be released on XBLA & PSN, then I don't see why any of the games that I listed except for MVC 2 can't be on VC.

marktheshark commented on Nintendo Rep: Virtual Console Being Toned Down:

Fake quote! Maybe.

Oh darn, where on earth is Fatal Fury Special & all those Neo Geo games? Oh well, I better get Ninja Commando to pass the time until FFS & more Neo Geo games go to the VC. Shouldn't be too long until at least FFS comes out on the VC!



marktheshark commented on Nintendo Download: Art, Cards and Crystals Hav...:

@ 86, The Fox

Or how about just call NOA & start cussing loudly at the representive who answered the phone. Won't do anything also, but at least you can vent your rage.

It's quite silly how NOA hasn't released a VC game this week, but has at least 52 games that they can pick from according to the coming soon list.



marktheshark commented on Tetris Attack:

Hmmm. They'll probably release Panel De Pon on the Eur & NA vcs to make up for Tetris Attack.
