Mommar commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Master System:

The Genesis my father bought came with an adapter that let you play old Master System games as well. MY brother and I rented more than a few to check them out and they were pretty much all terrible/unplayable as far as we could tell.

Maybe they'll have a story next about the dangers of jogging, too many people are clogging up our sidewalks looking for that next "runners high" and it's led to an epidemic of knee surgeries. That's valuable tax dollars being spent on every medical procedure to feed addictions!

Mommar commented on Tomonubu Itagaki Thinks Gamers Will Buy A Wii ...:

I'll buy it to support new Third Party WiiU titles however I don't really think this is going to bring over new converts like he says. There's a flaw in his argument, Dead Or Alive was already an established brand by the time he moved it to the XBox. This game has nothing behind it except possibly his name, if most people even recognize that. Which I doubt.

Jeremy Ellis wasn't "DJ'ing" really, just using a midi controller to mix/skip different parts of the track. Jazzy Jeff was doing the traditional Turntable-ism/DJ'ing gig. Both were impressive displays of different kinds of talent, however I didn't really enjoy either of the performances.

@Azikira Given that Namco is known for making fighting games and Smash Bros is home to marquee Nintendo (and Sega and Konami and Capcom) characters why shouldn't the company assisting with the creation of the next iteration include their own marquee character?

Mommar commented on Review: Ittle Dew (Wii U eShop):

I want to like this game but the combination of loose control mechanics and crap attack distance means it's just too frustrating for me to want to continue, which is too bad because the puzzle mechanics are done really well. Nintendo could learn a thing or two about varying their design mechanics from this game.

@JakeShapiro
Not once during my entire stint living during the 80's or 90's have I heard of an "anti-Japanese" phenomena or, rather, some sort of "xenophobia." The only time I ever really heard anything similar was in the late 80's/early 90's, very many Hawaiians weren't happy that so much land was being bought up by Japanese businessmen. Otherwise, no anti-Japanese sentiment of any kind as far as I can recollect.

Mommar commented on Nintendo's Plan for "Redefining the Definition...:

"The issue of Nintendo's next hardware was naturally raised, especially in light of the Wii U's current struggles. It's been made clear that Nintendo is not short of ideas for its next product, but that it's still prioritising satisfying the current generation of gamers."

In other words, they're not going to pull a Sega and just start pulling hardware support every few years.

@Damo I hadn't revisited Castlevania 3 since the SNES came out. Looking at it now I'm VERY impressed with how the graphics have held up. I kind of wish there were a 3D treatment of it on the 3DS, I think the backgrounds are complex enough that it would really pop.

@FJOJR This is what happened with my brother, it all but stopped once he was working and married. Then along comes my Nephew and suddenly Lego Marvel Superheroes has pulled my brother back in with him. I had no idea a four year old could be so fond of Stan Lee.

Mommar commented on Review: Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - Del...:

This game was terrible on the 3DS, as a matter of fact it's the only game I've downloaded and deleted as i was never going to play it again. I doubt the WiiU version is any better with the possible exception of the frame rate not being nearly as terrible.

I was at Toys R Us two days ago and saw a sign for this that said "Available Now." It was not available, nor was I able to track down the Marvel Legends Spider-Girl figure I was originally there for. Kind of a let down day.

Mommar commented on Matters Of Import: Steel Empire Is Flying High...:

You guys are about the only ones talking about this game. I don't really understand why. Maybe because I (and you guys here) are nostalgic for shumps and most aren't? I don't know, but I'm happy to know things like this are being produced.

Mommar commented on Matters of Import: 3D Fantasy Zone: Opa-Opa Br...:

It's too bad Nintendo isn't embracing this like Sega. I thought the touch-up to Kid Icarus was great and made the game a lot more enjoyable. I'd like lots of other 3D updates to classic Nintendo properties. I'd like to see stuff from Capcom/Konami/etc... too. A 3D port of the arcade version of Contra would sell gangbusters.

Note to these developers, only ever spring onto the internet completely finished products based on Nintendo works. That way it will be torrented/archived/etc... and people can go find it. Release an early preview and you're guaranteed Nintendo is going to shut you down. This is fricking Mario, if they shut down something like Star Fox that they don't care about at all do you really think they're going to let you muck with their flagship character?
