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.

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.

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.

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.

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:

@Luna-Harmony
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.

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.

I enjoyed this game but and it is one that you should at least play once in your life, but it isn't worth getting just so you can play it on the go so if t you have it on the Genesis/Megadrive, don't bother. I wish they would make another, the idea was pretty cool.

Mikau94 commented on iPhone Gaming Controller Could Mean "The End O...:

Oh boy! Apple can now decently play Super Nintendo games. Emulation is illegal and Nintendo has every right to stop it, so there goes 99% of the good games on the iPhone right there.

It is no longer very portable and your target audience is kids, kids who would probably rather play newer Mario games than half the crap that will be produced for this.Besides, look at the price, I could buy a 2DS and a game for that much!

@KeeperBvK and @KnightRider666
I don't hate Jaleco, but growing they were always "the company that made too many baseball games." but their NES end labels drove me nuts as well. They have a bunch of great games; Earth Defense Force was one of my first SNES games and I loved Avenging Spirit.

I may be too young to remember the NES and SNES eras but some of my all time favorite games were made for those condoles.

SEGA does what NIntendon't, that brings back memories. SEGA practically died and barely managed to survive. Nintendo could emulate their worst sales years for the next 50 years and they would still have money to keep going.

I found my first and only shiny (except gyrados) after almost 800 hours of gameplay. I played at least one game per gen starting all the way back with my copy of Red on the Gameboy and a Stanler in Soulsilver was my first.

I'd love to see see a physical release for this, if it has a decent length story and runs without a lot of bugs, I can see serious potential. Add in multi-player and you may have Golden Joystick award for best handheld for 2014. I can't wait to play this!

Oh course they want to emulate Nintendo! They were far more successful when they were under Nintendo. The Donkey Kong Country Series, Killer Instinct, Goldeneye, the Banjo-Kazooie franchise, and Conker's Bad Fur day are games many people still play and love.

I just don't get how a company that made such great games can screw up this badly. They cancel games that people are interested in, like Maverick Hunter and MML3 and instead give us horrible Resident Evil games some sort of rehashed Street Fighter game every year.
