Psydswipe commented on Best Buy Gives Strongest Indication Yet That B...:

I got the UPC for Black Ops II yesterday from a distributor as well as some other games I was not aware of (maybe you guys already know about them but I'll list them): Family Party: 30 Great Games Obstacle Arcade, Ben 10: Omniverse, Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2013, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, and Skylanders: Giants — Starter Pack. I know, nothing original and some rather bland stuff.

Psydswipe commented on Bugs'N'Balls:

Not like ping pong as the characters get knocked over by the ball, they don't deflect it. You throw balls back and forth trying to get all of the balls to one side of the table. You can also hit the computer controlled character with a ball to knock them down giving you a good opportunity to fill their side of the table before they can toss any back. Some consider Penguin-kun Wars to be similar to dodge ball since you are throwing a pink ball at an opponent.

You are thinking of Penguin-Kun Wars which was an arcade game first, back in 1985. The gameplay does look identical to this game.

I'm guessing Microforum messed up the description. They say magic brothers but it looks like one character is female.

Going retail in the US as well. I just came here to check if it did really make it out on WiiWare. Guess it gets to be both WiiWare and retail.

Psydswipe commented on Master System games hit the Japanese VC:

I actually like(d) Black Belt quite a bit. There isn't a whole lot to it, just some basic side-scrolling combat. When you defeat a boss your character continues to go insane on them with some super hyper kicking or punching -- nothing you actually control though. For some reason I thought that was great when I was a kid. I'd imagine it really isn't worth playing today though since there is nothing really unique about it.

Psydswipe commented on Hardware Focus - Sega Master System:

I didn't realize so few people in the US were familiar with the Master System. While I know most kids had a NES, I had a Master System and still do along with around 40 games. The most popular game from the system is likely Phantasy Star but I never got that one. Some of my favorites are Wonder Boy in Monster Land, Shinobi, Black Belt, and Gangster Town. The system also has a great version of Monopoly (I know, big deal).

Something not mentioned in the article is that the system has a unique set of 3-D glasses. They aren't like the NES Rad Racer ones, these actually plug into the system's card slot as they are electronic. Sega didn't make too many games for the glasses, mostly generic stuff but there is a Space Harrier game in 3-D.

Also, the games came in the nice hard plastic cases that the Genesis would later make use of. I always thought those were great in comparison to Nintendo's cardboard boxes.
