Ragnor commented on Reggie Trash-Talks the PSPgo:

Sony barely even cares about Australia and New Zealand, so the PSN Store we have for the PSP is tiny with barely any of what the US and UK get, so the PSP Go is going to be the modern day Dreamcast here (Nobody gave a damn about it here, and I only saw one for sale ONCE!, and it wasnt even in a game store!)



Ragnor commented on Review: Final Fantasy (Virtual Console / NES):

I cracked up at the screenshot of Garland, with the characters named after the staff. So Dazz is the pimp of the team, and Damo is the fragile healer with questionable gender?

I dont recognise the Black Mage though, whos that one?



Ragnor commented on Review: Bubble Bobble Plus! (WiiWare):

I love it mostly, but I hate some of the changes. I cant get past a certain level in Standard Mode for example, becuase you start in an area where you have to blow bubbles then bounce on them or something to get out (Its a level with the words HI TECH). I cant get anywhere past there.



Ragnor commented on Review: Star Ocean (SNES):

The best SNES game I ever played, and the only emulated game Ive been able to stomache. I pretty much enjoy every tri-Ace game there is, but this is one of their best imho. Sadly the PSP remake is flawed a lot to me, I consider the worst change to be removing the old world map and putting in a boring overworld and map in it's place. Also removing the ability to go back to the past after youve beaten the game? Ack.



Ragnor commented on Japanese Virtual Console list - April 2009:

I might try Majora's Mask, I hear its extremly creepy and grim and all that, but I hate OoT so it might be a gamble.

Phantasy Star I will pass on, I love the game, but I already have it on my 360 via SMUC



Ragnor commented on USA VC Update: Alex Kidd: The Lost Stars:

Alex Kidd in Enchanted Castle is the one on the Megadrive Ultimate Collection, not Lost Stars or Miracle World

And no its not the game fore this, Miracle World is, and its the best in the series.



Ragnor commented on Sonic the Hedgehog 2:

I have never beaten this. I owned this on my SMS2 as a kid, and never got past Green Hill's boss



Ragnor commented on WiiWare Announcement Blowout - Bubble Bobble, ...:

What version woyuld the Wii Bubble Bobble be based on though?

I'm not downloading the NES one for example, because its inferior to Final Bubble Bobble on the Master System.

I could never get into Rainbow Islands



Ragnor commented on Super Dodge Ball:

I love RCR, but I doubt I'll get this one when its out in EU (If its not one of those US and JP only games)



Ragnor commented on Ys Book I & II:

Bought it today.

Brilliant game for it's time, I was amazed even now 18 years after its release with the opening. And I'm one of those who never even heard of the game until the last few months. The music is astounding, except for that crappy town music, and the voice acting is prety good. 1990, and a game with english voice acting that isnt the worst ever? Wow.

I like it better than Super Mario RPG, which was my other purchase

EDIT: It took up 280 blocks for me.



Ragnor commented on EU VC Releases: Super Mario RPG and Super Mari...:

Actually, we WONT be getting Earthbound. Our future releases are all things US has already:
Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa
Dig Dug
DoReMi Fantasy
Spelunker (WHY?)

As its all NES and SNES, why cant we get some Earthbound?



Ragnor commented on EU VC Update - Samurai Shodown II:

I was hoping we would get Sonic SMS and Wonder Boy 2

I hate fighters that require the crazy combo inputs, and pretty much every fighter from those times was like that, so I wont touch SS2, Ecco Jr I have on the Megadrive Collection, and it is a load of rubbish, and C64 games dont get released in New Zealand.

Terrible week for me.

EDIT: Oh yeah, Corbie, one of those MVS things is in the movie theatre I go to, SS2 was there



Ragnor commented on Wonder Boy in Monster Land:

Yeah, the cover art progressivly got a lot better. I owned most of the better games from around the Sonic 2 SMS period, and all of them had good cover art

But oh man, the early ones would make you laugh at them over and over



Ragnor commented on Wonder Boy in Monster Land:

Ahahaha, that cover art is so bad xD

But yeah, now I'll finally be able to see the end of this game properly, since it links into the beginning of the third

Speaking of which, I would totally buy the SMS Wonder Boy 3, even though Dragon's Curse is basically better in most ways. Nostalgia and all that



Ragnor commented on Top 10 Racing Games We Want To Come To The Vir...:

Stunt Car Racer?

I'm reminded of some game on a guy's PC way backwhen I was 6/7 where you could make tracks from all kinds of crazy things, with loops, ice, floating platforms and the like. I had more fun making the tracks than racing them

I had Super Monaco GP on my SMS and thought it sucked



Ragnor commented on Sonic the Hedgehog:

You guys want to include some screenshots of the other zones to prove it's not a port to the uneducated

Because we are sure to get the "Is this a port of the original or what?" remarks, only more poorly worded

I owned this game, along with every other currently released SMS game, as a kid, and this game was brilliant. Sadly though, every game relased after this is an import for americans
