Mr-DNA commented on Review: Rock Zombie (Wii U eShop):

No co-op, no aerial attacks. These are cardinal sins for an arcade beat 'em up. 6/10 seems generous. In my mind, "so bad it's good" is limited to the Rushing Beat trilogy. Even indie games can be "so good they're good."



Mr-DNA commented on Giana Sisters 2 In Development, Could Be Comin...:

The original has the honor of being the first game that I've downloaded and deleted without finishing. It was a mediocre platformer at best, with eye-burning visuals. The only thing is had going for it was the whole world-switching mechanic, and even that was mostly cosmetic. Sure, it made a couple floating floors switch places, but altering the whole background did nothing, save for opening a few wells. If it was more thoughfully implemented, it could have been great. As it stands now, it's just a cheap hook.



Mr-DNA commented on Pre-Orders Open For NES, Persona Q and Smash B...:

The box looks like the NES console while the 3DS itself just has a controller slapped on the front. WHY. They should have designed it just like the NES-styled GBA SP. I dig the red buttons though.

As I was typing this, IxC posted essentially the same thing, but I think it's worth stating twice in a row.



Mr-DNA commented on Rock Zombie Is Bringing Hard Rock And Side-Scr...:

(Cut to generic rocker chick [red] repeating a single swing)

I'm all for arcade brawlers, but this looks awful. Those jerky walk cycles, the samey characters, no co-op, and worst of all, the band has no drummer!



Mr-DNA commented on Review: Mega Man X3 (Wii U eShop / Super Ninte...:

I'm surprised the review didn't mention my biggest complaint with this game. Nearly every enemy has some type of shield. I don't expect to mow through every single enemy in the game completely mindlessly, but the books -when they're actually there- are a chore to fight through.



Mr-DNA commented on Nintendo Confirms Two More Virtual Console Tit...:

Sweet! SF2010 will complete the Capcom page on my Wii U menu!

MM1-6, MMX1-3, FF2-3, SF2T, Duck Tales, and D&D, in case anyone was wondering. Once Gargoyle's Quest II and Demon's Crest are available, I'll have to kick the two non-VC games out.



Mr-DNA commented on Watch Dogs Will be the Only "Mature" Ubisoft G...:

I can't wait for Yves' inevitable "SEE? We told you Wii U owners don't buy mature games!" when W_D tanks. It'll have nothing to do with the fact that everybody bought it for every other system imaginable and found out that it was all hype. I don't know anyone who's played it who didn't find it to be a huge letdown. Which is a shame, since I wanted to try it, but I already bought a ticket to the Ubi hype train before. (Zombi U)

If Ubisoft crafted games half as well as they concoct their self-fulfilling prophecies on Wii U owners' buying habits, they wouldn't have to release these statements.



Mr-DNA commented on Beautiful Limited Edition Super Smash Bros. 3D...:

This design is in full violation of 'less is more.' It doesn't need the character lineup and the title; they should have just picked one. Honestly, I would have preferred a big Smash logo. I was waiting until a Smash edition XL was announced before upgrading, but now I think I'm going to hunt down a Zelda edition.



Mr-DNA commented on Former Cing Vice President Would Like the Stor...:

I imported Last Window. It's the only video game I ever gave my girlfriend as a gift. (Its the only one she'd want as a gift.) I'm still bummed that I'll never see a release of Another Code R in the States, though.



Mr-DNA commented on Capcom's Mega Man 7 Is Dashing To The Wii U eShop:

Apparently the Saturn is notoriously difficult to emulate, hence the appearance of the PS1 version of MM8 on the Anniversary Collection. It's a shame, too, as the Saturn version has more content, like the optional Cut Man and Wood Man fights (no weapons though), and the fan design galleries.



Mr-DNA commented on Slew of Capcom Titles Announced for North Amer...:

Oh, man! This is some good news! Looking forward to rounding out my MM collection, as well as GQII, DC, SF2010, and MFF. Geez, I'll have a whole page on my Wii U menu devoted to classic Capcom before the year is over!



Mr-DNA commented on Game Boy Classic Donkey Kong Land Is Coming To...:

I never played the sequels, but the original DKL always seemed to me like a case of "coulda" over "shoulda." The pre-rendered graphics lose quite a bit when your reduce them to four colors from the SNES' 256. Combine that with a tiny screen, and you've got a formula for running into Kremlings. The 8-bit renditions of the tunes were great, though.



Mr-DNA commented on The Year of Luigi Officially Ends on 18th March:

People who are clamoring for another "Year of ___" have completely missed the point. Luigi was almost always in the background, whether he was relegated to Player 2 in Super Mario Bros or off having (possibly more interesting) adventures in Thousand Year Door. Hell, even when he was brought to the forefront, he was either shown as a coward (Luigi's Mansion), a coward (Superstar Saga), or a coward (partners in Time). If anyone deserved some spotlight time after 30 years, it was Luigi.

Other Nintendo characters don't need their own year; they just need more games.



Mr-DNA commented on Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Hits Funding Target t...:

I'm glad they made their goal. This has been a painful Mickstarter to watch, mostly because I just don't have the spare cash to donate to this kind of thing. If I did, I'd throw that $350 at them to put my art in the game. But there's just one little detail, WayForward: artists don't have money. That said, who'd like to donate $350 to put MY art in 1/2 Genie Hero?

I'm kidding, of course.

No I'm not.
