MisterSmith commented on Chronos Twins DX Coming to WiiWare:

I had no idea this game ever eventually came out. I remember reading about it WWAAAYY back when it was a GBA title and heard they were transferring it to the DS, but I never knew it eventually came out. Guess it never hit the U.S. Hopefully that will change this time, assuming it's any good.

MisterSmith commented on Mighty Flip Champs! On Nintendo Channel:

I really hope this is 500 points, since I still have that many left from when I got my DSi yesterday. I wouldn't be surprised if it came out for 800(+) points, but it just means I wouldn't be getting it for a little while.

MisterSmith commented on Review: Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars (DS):

The main reason why I bought this game was because the developers (Rockstar Leeds) did such a great job with Max Payne for the GBA. The game had voice overs and 3D and so much stuff that pushed the boundaries for the system. Stuff you'd never think of being possible for a handheld. They pulled it off again with this game, and I really hope they stick around and keep making DS games.

MisterSmith commented on Top 20 WiiWare Games in USA (28th Jan):

I don't have World of Goo, either. I'm waiting for Cave Story right now before I buy any other WiiWare games right now. Since I have an odd number of points (1900, to be exact) I don't want to make any more purchases until I can even things out, y'know? But once Cave Story comes out, World of Goo will be purchased sometime soon after.

MisterSmith commented on Toribash Coming To WiiWare:

Between Cave Story, Super Meat Boy, Defend Your Castle and this...it seems like WiiWare becoming the destination for the free indie games getting onto the consoles. I wonder how long until Desktop Tower Defense, the Knytt series, La-Mulana, or anything from devs like Cactus or Annie make it to the WiiWare.

MisterSmith commented on Nicalis Updates Cave Story Progress:

If it means more money for pixel, than I'm sold. As long as it's actual content (levels, items, or whatever) and not something like a different skin or something. If it's free, I'm sure I won't mind whatever it is regardless. The main game is my main concern anyway.

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

I think the problem with VC is that Nintendo seems to have no reason or pattern to release these games. Why no Castlevania release when Judgement came out? None of the Sonic titles that haven't been released for Unleashed? Will We see the NES Rygar come out when the Wii version comes out?

That and it seems like Nintendo likes to pick a selection of titles that frankly lack any real value for its price. I don't think anyone ever cared about Urban Champion or China Warrior back when they were originally released. Putting them out again isn't going to make them any better. I understand they can't put SMRPG and Vectorman out every week, but it'd be nice for them for them to put out the games from that time worth remembering.

MisterSmith commented on North American WiiWare Top 10:

LostWinds is getting beat by TV Show King? I can understand the other three being where they are...but TV Show King? This just bursts my bubble.

Although, for the moment at least, I'm just going to assume that LostWinds sold very well the weeks prior, resulting in some kind of drop-off in sales which would allow it to go that far down.

Unless TV Show King has been beating it all along, which will make me sad.

MisterSmith commented on Yudo Announces Aero Guitar For WiiWare:

Much cheaper than the alternatives, so I'll probably jump in.

I'm refusing to buy any Guitar Hero/Rock Band/etc. type game until they all decide to play nice with their controllers. I have no need to spend hundreds of dollars on several fake guitars, drums, and mics.

MisterSmith commented on Luc Bernard's Rose Princess coming to WiiWare:

I was excited for this game back when he announced it way back.

But I follow his blog fairly off and on, and Luc bugs me, to be honest. He flip flops between what kinds of games he wants to do and for what systems he puts them on. He hated XBLA when he went to WiiWare, but now all of a sudden (according to recent posts) he likes it again and wants to do an iPhone game. Or a PC game. Actually it was probably both. And then some.

Or something. He just doesn't seem to work with any of his ideas until they get somewhere (with the exception of the fairly underwhelming first footage of the WW version of Eternity's Child)

Of course, I love the concepts and such of EC and this game sounds great as well. It's just a matter if he stops blogging and thinking about all the different platforms so much and actually does some game making.

MisterSmith commented on North American WiiWare launch games:

@x.SuperMario.x

Where did Nintendo confirm Dr. Mario Online Rx for the US WiiWare launch? Nothing was confirmed officially as a launch title until this press release was posted.

Where's Gyrostarr? Or Toki Tori? How about Star Soldier R? Critter Round-up? Where did V.I.P. Casino come from? TONS of titles that were speculated or otherwise 'announced' for launch on WiiWare aren't on this list.

http://www.nintendowiifanboy.com/2008/05/06/nintendo-holding-back-wiiware-launch-list/

Even the game makers are pretty much out of the loop, when it comes to game launches.

Besides, Nintendo DID say they were going to stagger WiiWare in the U.S. a little bit more, unlike in Japan. With the exception of the March 25th launch, only two titles have come out (Puzzloop in April and Block Breaker in April).

In Reggie's words a 'Virtual Console' approach

http://www.nintendowiifanboy.com/2008/04/24/u-s-wiiware-not-on-the-same-monthly-release-schedule-as-japan/

So Dr. Mario could be the following week, for all we know.

MisterSmith commented on North American WiiWare launch games:

I'm very happy with this line-up, I don't know what you people are all whining about.

I'll definitely be checking out LostWinds and FFCC. I'm on the fence about Defend Your Castle and Pop. I probably won't knock V.I.P. Casino or TV Show King, but it's not bad to have variety.

I'm also glad that Nintendo didn't release any of their games for launch. I think it's nice for them to give the other companies a chance.
