PoorVGameNerd commented on Review: Double Dragon II: The Revenge (Wii Vir...:

Eh, 8 is a fair score. I can live with that. One minor quibble though: as with most home versions of arcade games, Double Dragon wasn't a "port" in the strictest sense of the term, it was an adaptation. There is quite a difference. Other than that, good review.

PoorVGameNerd commented on Nintendo Download: 21st June 2012 (North America):

Yeah! Double Dragon II! I have my old NES cart, but finally, after 6 years of waiting, other people who didn't hang on to their old systems will have the chance to play it. Seriously, what took so long? Do Nintendo and Aksys NOT want to make money? I still can't believe Konami re-released Contra 2 and Contra 3 but NOT the first game. They even made a BRAND NEW Contra for WiiWare. What's the deal?

PoorVGameNerd commented on CryEngine 3 "Runs Beautifully" on Wii U:

Yeah, I also wish it was TimeSplitters. But Crytek says there's no way they're greenlighting it until they see proof that enough people would be willing to pay for it. I say they should do an HD compilation of the first three and see how it sells. Come to think of it, I wouldn't even care if they didn't remaster them in HD, it would still be worth it just to have them in standard def or merely upscaled with online play enabled.

PoorVGameNerd commented on Talking Point: Wii U Bundles Need to Suit Us All:

While it might seem far fetched for Nintendo to offer different bundles, consider this: when the NES was released in NA, there were not two, not three, but four different bundles at launch. Given the company's current obsession with their past, they could very well take a page out of their '85 playbook.

PoorVGameNerd commented on First Impressions: New Super Mario Bros. U:

@ the two above me

those were interesting points. If Nintendo were to include the game as a pack-in title like they did with two other 2D Mario games (Super Mario Bros., Super Mario World), I'm sure that would win over a whole bunch of people who are on fence about buying a Wii U. Given the lackluster interest in the console, it would really help out.

Just wanted to issue a correction before someone else points it out. I said Super Mario World was Miyamoto's favorite Mario game based on this article:http://www.joystiq.com/2010/11/09/super-mario-world-is-miyamotos-favorite-mario-game/

Here's what he told IGN a few days ago:http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/06/15/this-is-shigeru-miyamotos-favorite-mario-game

I guess he must have changed his mind over the last few years. I wonder what made him say Super Mario Bros. 2 is now his favorite Mario of all time. I wouldn't mind seeing another Mario 2-style game. It might not be a "real" Mario but I thought it was awesome. It would be a nice change of pace from all these "New Super Mario Bros." that keep using the same gameplay. Gotta mix things up every few years.

Seeing as how Miyamoto says his favorite Mario game is Super Mario World, should we really be surprised at all the references to it? I loved that game, and if New Super Mario Bros. 2 is going to use it as a foundation, it should be amazing.

PoorVGameNerd commented on Zelda Remakes Still Part of Nintendo's Quest:

I still prefer the 2D Zeldas over the 3D ones. More action, less talking, no 10 minute cutscenes. Anyway, I think Nintendo should focus more on making new games rather than rehashing old titles over and over again, regardless of how great they are.
