Philski commented on Night Trap ReVamped Developer May Flip-Flop on...:

Whether this is your sort of game or not, it is a really important part of videogame history.

The only reason I learned about this Kickstarter was because of Nintendo Life, so thanks for the post!

Before I even backed it I let them know that I would have happily put down money for a Wii U version.

Looks like I'll be able to.

Anybody who is interested in preserving a piece our history, do this Kickstarter a favour and give it some love.



Philski commented on North American WiiWare launch games:

@ Jace I couldn't agree more

I find it hard to understand the bemoaning of the lack of demos of these games. I can't remember a time in the history of video games before now where I was able to play a demo of a game before purchasing it. However I do recall getting a free video cassette with a Nintendo magazine back in the day promoting Donkey Kong Country and thinking 'that looks amazing!', I equally brought game magazines and would read a review of a game and think it appealed, not to mention being introduced to titles such as Zelda around a friends house.

From what I have read, titles such as LostWinds sound truly interesting, whereas My Life as a King may have dwindled slightly in my interest the more I have heard about it.

I for one am interested to see how some of these unique titles might influence bigger games, allowing a broader range of software to be created for the platform.

And just because game 'x' wasn't in the launch set of games and might have to wait additional week or two?... be thankful you don't live in Europe or Australia.

I for one can't wait to read the reviews about these titles and get a better idea of what they are like.
