Mikau94 commented on Interview: Nintendo Arcade Collector Shoots Fr...:

I love the artwork on that cab! I've never seen anything like that. Even with the issues on the control panel, that is still in amazing condition; at 35 years old would have expected some burn in, torn up vinyl on the sides and a handful of unoriginal or poorly painted parts. Honestly, it is amazing that it even works considering how finicky arcades can be.



Mikau94 commented on Review: NES Remix Pack (Wii U):

I really enjoyed this! I was going to download them at some point but the physical copy sealed the deal for me. There are some great sections and in certain games like Zelda and Kid Icarus you get to play through most of the major parts of the game. The remix levels were probably my favorites. The game gets a little hart at times but I wouldn't have it any other way. The one real complaint I've got is that they included a bunch of the black box sports games which could be really difficult and extremely boring.



Mikau94 commented on Poll: Which is the Best Pokémon Game?:

HG and SS were my favorite. If you count the teenagers as part of their original gen (ie ORAS is gen 3) then currently
Gen 1 - 15%
Gen 2 - 30%
Gen 3 - 17%
Gen 4 - 8%
Gen 5 - 11%
Gen 6 - 11%
IDK - 8%

I am suprised and kinda glad that gen 3 isn't in the lead especially since so many people make a big deal about it and it just wasn't as good some other entries, but I haven't played to much of Alpha Sapphire that much yet.



Mikau94 commented on Poll: Which is the Best Super Smash Bros. Game?:

Wow, I thought I was the only one who didn't think Melee was the best!

The Wii U version is shaping up to be my favorite (I haven't played 3DS yet). The online modes work well, everything is super polished and there are so many characters and stages to choose from. My few complaints are that there is no story mode and no Solid Snake or Roy.

While the Subspace Emissary was a little weird I wish they would have brought something like that back. It did a great job of helping you get better at using characters that you might not have normally chosen.

Melee is great and it was the one I spent the most time playing and I can see why people love it, but it isn't my favorite.



Mikau94 commented on Review: Duck Hunt (Wii U eShop / NES):

This is a must buy if you don't already have the NES version. That said, I'll think I'll pass since I've already got every release of Duck Hunt except the PlayChoice 10/VS Duck Hunt version. The zapper was part of the original experience and without the flash of the screen and feel of the spring loaded trigger it just won't be the same. The zapper was super accurate and you didn't experience lag.



Mikau94 commented on December's Club Nintendo Rewards Aim to Bring ...:

Can we please get rid of Wii VC rewards and just focus on the Wii U, you know, that system that they are currently trying to sell. The physical rewards aren't even worth mentioning.

I picked up Game and Watch Ball a few years ago and now I have 1,600+ points just sitting around. Japan and Europe have had some great figurines and soundtracks.



Mikau94 commented on Hyrule Warriors Update and Twilight Princess D...:

Yes, you can keep scanning the same Amiibos once a day for new items/rupees. I wonder if the items will be less valuable the more you scan the same figure or if it is completely random. It could be that you get a really good item the first time you scan it and it is random after that?



Mikau94 commented on Video: The Top 10 Mario Platformers, As Select...:

Very good list guys.
This list would be almost identical to my own if Sunshine was at the bottom or not on here at all. It is a great game but I feel that New Super Mario Bros and Super Mario Bros. 2 deserve a spot on this list a bit more. I think my opinion can change depending on which Mario games I have played recently.



Mikau94 commented on Nintendo 64x64: Shadows of the Empire:

7/10 seems a little harsh. I finally got around to playing SotE a couple years ago and it was awesome. Obviously by today's standards it may be not be as great, but back then it did a lot considering the hardware limitations. I would give it an 8/10 at least.



Mikau94 commented on Modder Shows How to Play the 3DS With a GameCu...:

Very nice, I was just working on something like this, only it was for a SNES to be controlled by an arcade stick. This is harder though because of the analog stick and programmable buttons.

The problem I have is that it isn't very portable anymore but it is a neat project none the less. If it wasn't for the ability to program buttons, you could remove the bulky exterior board and it would be portable.



Mikau94 commented on Video: Nintendo Goes For Drama and a Deep Voic...:

Its still better than a lot of NOA's commercials since the launch of the Wii; I was really getting sick of watching middle-aged people play the most boring parts of a game. Other than the awkward, "It's time to Fight" at the end, it was a solid commercial and it go the message across.



Mikau94 commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Brings Circ...:

It's not too hard to replace the circle pad on either model. I can see how you could do this when you smash but I think these may be some extreme cases but I really don't like how thin they made the stick on the circle pad.



Mikau94 commented on Nintendo's Unity Presentation Confirms Critica...:

Gone Home is a really good experience, but it is hard to classify it as a game. Its plays more like an interactive story.

While it is entertaining and really well made; don't play this expecting more than a good story. You explore a house and when you get to certain areas or find certain items you listen to an audio track that furthers the story.



Mikau94 commented on Rare Nintendo World Championships Cartridge Ev...:

Agreed, the buyers can really screw the seller, and they do take advantage of buyer protection. I've stopped selling on ebay due to people claiming the items I've sent are broken on multiple occasions.

One guy backed out when I told him I would pay for return shipping, he would have taken the offer if he wasn't trying to scam me.The other guy bought a DS lite that I couldn't fix; he got mad when he tried to fix it and couldn't, stating that I didn't list all the problems even though I had listed it as "AS IS" and had never seen it working.

Now I deal on craigslist and with other local collectors and make 3/4 the amount but I get great deals since I work with other collectors and I have a blast.



Mikau94 commented on NES Remix Miiverse Contest Cancelled Due To Em...:

I would guess it has to do with rapidly pausing the game so that the timer doesn't count as fast. I remember a few NES games and Arcade machines had the same issues.

In Megaman you could take out the bosses easily by pressing select right after the boss took damage, unpause and fire again to get extra hits.



Mikau94 commented on Feature: Why I Love Import Gaming:

When I moved to Europe all of my systems were NTSC so I had a massive step down converter that sat under my bed. I have found that adapters like this are your best friend with older games.
For newer consoles I just buy a different power cord that was designed to handle the higher voltage because the the newer systems are practically identical and the cords are the only things tat have changed. Unfortunately systems like the original XBOX and some Playstation consoles have the power converter built into the console which mean you have to use a converter.



Mikau94 commented on Soapbox: Nintendo's Appearance at VGX Underwhe...:

No Man's Sky and Broken Age looked amazing but the rest of the show was downright stupid. The humor was childish and some of the awards were skipped altogether. There was so much downtime and useless banter that I turned it off after No Man's Sky. If a close friend or family member would have seen me watching that I would have been embarrassed.
