RantingThespian commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

I'm having the same problem. It just goes to a black screen, and then returns to the Wii U menu. No error message or anything.

This is very troubling since I was really looking forward to the Metroid Prime Trilogy, and there is no way that will fit on my Wii U. I hope Nintendo can fix this issue, pronto.



RantingThespian commented on Nintendo Kicks Off a "Throwback Sale" on the e...:

These are all ones that I know of (excluding the Wii remote and nunchuck support)

  • The graphics for 1 and 2 are improved (upgraded texures, bloom lighting, fixed glitches, improved environmental effects, 16:9 aspect ratio)
  • The award system for 3 is incorporated into 1 and 2
  • Faster loading times
  • Echoes's difficulty is slightly lowered
  • Fully incorporated 4-person-local-multiplayer based off the version from Echoes
  • Ability to unlock the Metroid Fusion suit (that was originaly only unlockable by linking Fusion on the GBA and Prime on GC)
  • New unified start menu


RantingThespian commented on EA Cancelled Wii U SimCity Title Before The Fo...:


Now, don't get me wrong, I love the SimCity franchise. I just hate what EA Has done with it. The current PC version is terrible, and obviously this was going to be a port of that monstrosity.

I wish Will Wright would come back and save his creation. I have so many fond memories of SimCity 2000, 3000, and 4.



RantingThespian commented on Interview: Rocky Morton On The Chaos Of Direct...:

Nintendo has been approached multiple times for movies based on their IPs (Mario, Zelda, and especially Metroid). But, Nintendo has been so weary since the flop of the SMB Movie that nothing has ever been greenlit. I think the one that was the closest to actually being made was a Metroid movie in the early 2000s.

However, with Bowser appearing in Wreck It Ralph, maybe Nintendo will become a bit more willing to take a chance and do another movie based on their IPs.

I'd really love to see a "LOTR-style" Zelda film or an "Alien-style" Metroid film.



RantingThespian commented on Nintendo 64x64: Mario Golf:

Oh my god, how I LOVED this game. I spent a whole summer playing it over and over again. I also have so many fond memories of playing mini golf with my friends (back when I had friends that played video games).

What was so great was the variety of courses, the user friendly interface (that also was hard to master), and just the joy and little Nintendo touches that made you wish you could crawl into the game, and just watch Yoshi put the ball in while you lie on a blanket next to the pond.

Seriously, I could never find any flaw in this game. The variety, the perfect balance of real golf and the Mushroom Kindom, the multiplayer, just everything!




RantingThespian commented on Nintendo 64x64: GoldenEye 007:

This game took away so many hours of my teenage years. The only thing better than GodlenEye 007 is GoldenEye 007 + Game Shark Pro!

The hours I spent uncovering things like the "Classic Bond" portraits (proving that the All Bond Cheat actually was experimented with at one point), shooting tank shells from my head, walking through all doors, playing Statue and Cradle in Multiplayer, exploring the outpost in the Dam level, and of course playing as a floating arm.

Oh, also, what other game can you slide around on your knees, and dance like a moron by press the C buttons the right way?
