MaxPlastic commented on Welcome to the New Look Nintendo Life!:

It's also weird to see WWW and VC-R people together... Some of us just stuck to one site or the other...
~ Come on, people now... Smile on your brother, everybody get together, try to love one another right now... ~

MaxPlastic commented on USA VC Update: Super Punch-Out!!:

I'm still waiting for Pro Wrestling and Mayhem in Monsterland... Not to mention the countless other games we've already beaten to death and will probably never get...
Wow, that sounds bitter... Excuse me, I'm just not feeling well lol

MaxPlastic commented on Final Fantasy Finally Coming to VC:

Big Hell's yeah on the FFIV: The After Years, but since I have most of the first four at least twice, I doubt I'll DL any of them... I dunno, I'm probably lying

MaxPlastic commented on Rumour: EarthBound Not Coming to Virtual Console:

@ WarioFan63: Yeah but they already re-released the GameCube with motion controls, the least they could do is make some original games for it. I just feel like the time spent on these GCN "remakes" could be used in creating other original games for Wii
And again,

MaxPlastic commented on Rumour: EarthBound Not Coming to Virtual Console:

Being someone who has never played EarthBound, I continually waited for news of this game to come to VC...
Sigh
I'm not buying that the music is the only hold-up, but I'm also pretty sure they'll let it stand as the excuse... Oh well...
Stop it Nintendo... I defend you time and time again, but first you tell me I'm getting Pikmin for Wii only to find out it's the original Pikmin with "new Wii controls?" Last year you release the new Wii Animal Crossing to a rabid fan-base, only to find out it's a Wii version of Wild World? And now this? Ugh...

MaxPlastic commented on Talking Point: Is the Virtual Console On The S...:

I wonder if the already available catalogue of games still possibly available (All those games we always whine about) will be used to eke out the remaining service days of the VC, meanwhile Nintendo releases something else for us to buy?

MaxPlastic commented on USA VC Update: Kirby's Dream Land 3:

Total surprise. Even tho it's only one game, this is a good start for 2009!
The Dream Land series isn't my favorite of Kirby's, but this is an instant download for me

MaxPlastic commented on Virtual Console Reviews - Best of 2008:

Even if SMRPG isn't the best game on the VC, I will agree it's the best RELEASE; It had everyone up in arms one way or the other. Don't know if my Top Ten would include two shooters... But considering everything that was released in 08, that's probably a fair list

I only have DoReMi Fantasy and SMRPG tho...

MaxPlastic commented on USA VC Update: StarTropics II:

Oho! Perhaps I'll actually download a VC game this week!
...Still waiting for Pro Wrestling tho. And let's be different and throw Monster Party, Little Nemo, and Legacy of the Wizard in there, too n_n
... And don't even get me starte don the SNES wishlist (coughSoulBlazertrilogycough) lol

Good VC update IMO, so in the words of Cartman, "Quit yer bitchin'"

MaxPlastic commented on Super Smash Bros.:

I have actually been longing to play this one... The other two incarnations have brought all these bells and whistles, but without changing it much, for better or for worse. It'll be nice to get back to basics

MaxPlastic commented on EU VC Update: Last Ninja 3, Impossible Mission...:

At the risk of being lynched by Captain Konami...
Whatever happened to taking the information a game site or game mag gave you, processing that, and then ultimately deciding for yourself whether or not you wanted to buy, rent, or try a game?
The staff at VC-Reviews are providing people online with an amicable amount of detail and criticism for each game; And when I read a review online or in a mag, I always take it with a grain of salt. I for one think Splatterhouse is actually pretty boring to play, but the reviewers and readers here seem to think otherwise. And let's face it. You pretty much know what games you're willing to try by looking at or watching them anyway
As far as the PAL issue goes, I do think that any issues should probably be mentioned in reviews, as slow down or any framerate change would be detrimental (That goes for any game)
The point I'm trying to make is that I guess I agree with both Captain Konami and Betagam7 as far as updating each reviews with any issues regarding the port of a game; But to say that games with no differences receiving reviews based on ROMs are inaccurate is a little nit-picky. Boogerman is a game about farts and boogers no matter how you look at it, and you already know by looking at it whether or not you'll want to try it, regardless of what format it was reviewed on
I feel like this is all a side effect of the staff just trying to get reviews out for us to read and look at as fast as possible. I mean, we are a pretty insatiable crowd. NA VC updates usually go up at about 9-10am EST here in America, and it usually only takes five minutes for the post to receive 30 comments

MaxPlastic commented on EU VC Update: Last Ninja 3, Impossible Mission...:

lol If they made the Vectrex an NA VC exclusive, do you think they'd have the option to play with and/or without the color overlays?
... Man the Vectrex would be lame compared to the MSX and C64...
I vote NA get Apple ][ or Macintosh games!

MaxPlastic commented on USA VC Update: Metal Slug 2:

@ firebrand and Stuffgamer1:
Yeah, I agree, but my point was that they're a business, they're a business who has had success with many different avenues (Even if they have been of varying degrees), and they, as a business, can do whatever they want to make money. So if putting out, publishing, or licensing crappy shovelware makes them money, that's how they're gonna do it. I also went on to say that they would be abandoning Nintendo fans, hardcore or casual, if they moved on to something else
But like I said, I agree

@ Stuffgamer1: I also agree with not just owing a Wii. I myself like to have access to all kinds of game media. Sure, I'm addicted to grabbing Power Stars and Mushrooms, but I can't wander around a post-apocalyptic Washington, DC, or wander the streets of Liberty City on Wii

MaxPlastic commented on USA VC Update: Metal Slug 2:

I'm just sayin'...
When I was a kid, I traded Wrecking Crew and Pro Wrestling for... The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle... With one of my friends. When I was a kid, I played the Bugs Bunny to death, but when I got older I regretted it. I got Wrecking Crew back on VC, now if only they'd put out Pro Wrestling!

MaxPlastic commented on USA VC Update: Metal Slug 2:

I haven't been on here (Except for checking weekly Monday updates, Editors =P) in a month or two now, and the last VC game I DLed was EWJ... I've just resigned myself to check the updates and if there's nothin' I like well, I have other games to play, not to mention other things to do in my life. Now I'm not knockin' anyone who sits here and complains or praises various releases; You're the consumer, you have a right to feel that way up to a certain extent, and you also have the right to wait for updates. On the other hand, I realized my whining and/or praising in the end got me nowhere with what classic games I wanted to come out. I doubt very seriously Legacy of the Wizard, Monster Party, King's Quest V, Uniracers, etc. will ever see the light of day on VC (Although I do see the first Dragon Slayer on the "Coming Soon"!). If they do, awesome. If they don't, I can't beat Nintendo into submission and make them obtain licenses
Also for those of you who complain about Nintendo and it's new casual approach, I read something a month or so ago. UK's very own EDGE magazine had an article on the matter, and they made a very good point. Nintendo have been around for 120 years and they've only been developing games for about 20-23 of those years. So if they move into something else, or transform their games into something else for someone else, who are we to blame them? They've found success in many different markets over the years and who are we to tell them they can't? Sure, they'd be abandoning a unabashedly loyal yet sometimes fickle fanbase, but it's our privilege, not our right, to play Nintendo's greatest games
Now, that being said, I do think we have the right to be disappointed or maybe even mad about what Nintendo do as a company
I was also gonna comment on how it's funny to me how people rationalize all the time here, but I just did the same thing lol
By the way to my fellow NA gamers: EDGE is an awesome game mag based in the UK. You should totally sunscribe to it...
But no one covers VC like you guys, VC-Reviews lol... No offense

And with all that said...
Where the Hell is Pro Wrestling?! lol

MaxPlastic commented on USA VC Release - Earthworm Jim:

'Slightly' inferior? I DLed it this morning and was sorely disappointed in the "What The Heck?" level audio... I also have some qualms about the button layout... I would trade this MD version for the one-level-less SNES version any day... That's the one I grew up playing. However, it is still an excellent game and no one should pass it up

Hmph, I wanted Monster Party for Halloween...
Haven't touched my Wii in weeks, and haven't DLed a VC game in longer... When I do get some points, at least I'll have Secret of Mana and EarthWorm Jim to get...

... OH WELL, back to Fallout 3!

MaxPlastic commented on USA VC Releases: Secret of Mana and Street Fig...:

@ Bass XO: I actually liked Sword of Mana. And the one on the PSX wasn't too bad either. I haven't cared for the DS iterations... And I've never played Dawn of Mana for PS2... Now, better than Zelda? Nahhh...

lol @ SF II Genesis; Prepared to be over looked. Fail

DS version of Virtual console? Okay
SD card slot? That's cool
Bigger screens? Yes please!
... Cameras? For what?

I'd rather them just go ahead and announce the next REAL DS... One with bigger, brighter screens at a higher resolution, with multiple touch-points on the touch screens

MaxPlastic commented on USA VC Release: Mega Man 2:

MaxPlastic commented on USA VC Releases: Cho Aniki and Final Soldier:

Good job Dazza lol

VC-R Says: ALL UR POSTS R BELONG TO US!!1!

Again, sorry about adding to the problem

@Mickeymac: If you like shooters, get Final Soldier, of course. Mario RPG is like a "My First Menu Based RPG" game, but if you love the Mario series than it's recommended. I love it. And Beyond Oasis is more along the lines of Zelda, Alundra, or The Illusion Of Gaia... So it really just depends on your tastes...

MaxPlastic commented on USA VC Releases: Cho Aniki and Final Soldier:

@ Kultist: No, it's actually an involved game with missions and things... Kinda like a pop-up book styled version of Cubivore, if you've ever played it. You can collect and upgrade different parts to evolve into bigger and more powerful things, but not nearly as customizable as the PC Spore. It's still fun tho, and since my PC will never handle Spore, it's a cool alternative. A Wii port would be cool as Hell

I'd also like to apologize for antagonizing fellow posters on this article, and taking away from the original subject matter. Kultist is right (See Post 132)

... But if this were a traditional forum or XBL, I think it'd be fair game to come down to his level and flame back and forth! That's what we do on the Internets! lol

MaxPlastic commented on USA VC Releases: Cho Aniki and Final Soldier:

Man Alpo, I warned ya. I told you he'd get ya almost 100 comments ago. That being said, how's that degree in accounting workin' for ya? I assume getting it didn't include any kind of typing, grammar, or English classes.... Besides, if you're so much better than everyone here, why're you tryin' to prove yourself to a bunch of invisible names? That's what we do here on the Internets: Act like the douche we can't act like in real life

And I think xSuperMariox should get some sort of flamin' medal. It's ironic there's so much flaming on the day one of the homo-erotic games is realeased. On topic, indeed

MaxPlastic commented on USA VC Releases: Cho Aniki and Final Soldier:

lol @ SuperMario; Totally agree

I'm agreed, but since Sonic on the SMS is the only game this site lists as a platformer (WTF, VC-Reviews?!), it's hardly fair to tell 'em to sort it out.
And I'd just like everyone to know that I DID use my remaining 800 Wii Points downloading Ys Book I and II, played it for about three hours, and I gotta tell ya... I DON'T like it; I don't like the actual gameplay. Why the Hell am I just running into enemies like a drunken sailor to kill them? Someone on an earlier post compared it to Zelda, and I really just don't think they've ever played a Zelda game. I deleted Metroid and Super Metroid to make room for it!

@ Alpo: You gotta come correct every time or SuperMario (Among others) will getcha every time!

MaxPlastic commented on USA VC Releases: Super Mario RPG and Clu Clu Land:

@ Rexy: I would also like to see a "real" Paper Mario sequel, instead of Mario RPG 2. If Square, they way they are now, made another Mario RPG, it'd end up having some new emo kid with spikey hair designed by Tetsuya Nomura and probably more Final Fantasy characters...
Super Mario Hearts: Stars of Broken Silence

@ Rapadash: I think Square would be more likely to work on a Mario & Luigi game, since some of the the staff already did with the other two anyway; That and Square loves the DS. I also don't think Intelligent Systems and Square need to collaborate on anything. The two styles would clash

MaxPlastic commented on Japanese Virtual Console list - September 2008:

I've never played the original Mana game! I'd love to get the chance. Mario Golf is... Meh... But maybe they'll release Mario Tennis soon! Forgotten Worlds is a cool shmup, but again, it's on other better valued compilations elsewhere

@Jashin: But Americans already have Rondo of Blood (Both remade and original versions) available to them on the PSP, so it's not like it's unattainable on a current console. Secret of Mana isn't available on a current console.
Square have said in the past that the games they make available on the VC would be games they don't see profitable avenues from on other systems (See King's Knight, ActRaiser and countless other over-milked Taito properties including Space Invaders). This is also why we'll not see Chrono Trigger on the VC, but on the DS (Which is better, for me at least)
The last few Mana games on the DS and PS2 were just okay so I figure them putting the original Mana on the VC would not only be a great way to make a little profit, but to also remember the franchise's past greatness... (And maybe retire it...)
