retro_player_22 commented on New Nintendo 3DS Undone by Dragon Quest Heroes...:

No surprise there, Japan will pick up anything Dragon Quest up there. Hopefully Nintendo learn from this and snatch up Dragon Quest XI for Wii U before Sony put their hands on it. You want to be successful in Japan, reserve Dragon Quest (or just release another version of Pokemon and Monster Hunter).

retro_player_22 commented on Review: Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones (Wii U ...:

One of the more enjoyable Fire Emblem games out of the three. Only minor disappointment is that it's a bit too easy and way too short. I was able to beat it around 15 hours through whereas Binding Blade (FE6) and Sealed Swords (FE7) took me around 30-40 hours in comparison.

@bngrybt For $10 more you could just get the Super Retro Trio and add Genesis compatibility to your library plus two superior controllers. Though if you still have your Retro Duo console, get this controller. It works 10x better than the one the Retro Duo came with, almost as good as the ones that came with the Super Retro Trio.

If you had a Super Retro Trio and/or RetroN 5, just ignore this one. Sure it could play Castlevania 3 and Super Mario RPG but the controller performance is very poor and the graphics quality fell even behind that of the FC Twin. If you haven't buy any clone system yet and is looking to go retro, find yourself an actual NES & Super NES instead or just get the Super Retro Trio (at least that one had better controllers).

retro_player_22 commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Mega CD:

@Quorthon Nintendo restrict developers with the N64 and Sega confused developers and the consumers with so many wasted products. Sony was lucky they enter the gaming market at the right time and with a reasonable price. Sony proves that you don't need wacky mascots and too many hardware to stay on top of the gaming market. I really am very surprise Sega got out of the hardware business though, they had way more franchise than Sony and Nintendo but they just don't know what to do with any of them. Even today they still struggle and only rely on Sonic as the saving grace.

retro_player_22 commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Mega CD:

I used to have a Sega CD with Sonic CD, Final Fight CD, Mortal Kombat, Lunar 1 & 2, Vay, Sol-feace, Popful Mail, Snatcher, and After Burner III. Of course the thing came bundle with Sewer Shark which was a crappy game imo but the rest of the games make up for it. Now if only the thing had not stopped reading disc, I would had kept it til this day.

I love those Viewtiful Joe games on GameCube and Nintendo DS, so glad he was a part of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom for Wii. He was my third main online for that game alongside Ken the Eagle. It would be nice if there's a Viewtiful Joe 3 or maybe a Tatsunoko vs. Capcom 2.

retro_player_22 commented on Interplay Is Remastering Cult SNES Brawler Cla...:

@Eisenbolan I was waiting to see if any news at all would surface about anything on that Clayfighter remake and the only remake that I got for DSi was that Earthworm Jim remake (by Gameloft, which was good). Once the 3DS and Wii U was on their way I was for sure they cancelled the Clayfighter remake, but now they say it's still coming. I guess the limitation of Wii Ware and DSiWare may be the cause of them not possible back then. Also sad that I can't transfer that Earthworm Jim remake to the 3DS like Zenonia and The Four Swords: Anniversary Edition, damn you Nintendo and Gameloft.

Looks like a decent DBZ fighter, hopefully it plays as good as Budokai or the classic Butoden or Hyper Dimension games. If it plays anything like Taiketsu and Ultimate Battle 22 then it's an automatic failure in my book, screenshots could be deceiving too so I hope it's doesn't.

If you are a die hard Nintendo handheld collector's then you must have had at least all of these (except for the 1DS) in your retro gaming collection.

retro_player_22 commented on January NPD Results Bring Improvement for Wii ...:

@Quorthon Sony and Microsoft don't make games, they are only there to throw money at third party to build numbers. Nintendo don't throw money, they make them by selling their own products, of course Nintendo does support 3rd party but not all of them, the ones you list are the few Nintendo had no part in, it basically applies the same with Sony and Microsoft as well.

retro_player_22 commented on January NPD Results Bring Improvement for Wii ...:

@BinaryFragger A lot of those 3rd party games flopped due to lack of marketing which the third party is responsible for. Nintendo can't just handle all marketing ad for each and every one. Other than in gaming magazine where else would find marketing ads for No More Heroes, A Boy and His Blob, Muramasa, and Arc Rise Fantasia? At least Red Steel 2 sold quite well despite the game was a but of a letdown.

retro_player_22 commented on 3DS Flashcard Users Playing ROMs Online Report...:

If you're gonna play any illegal roms of any system, don't use it on that specific platform especially one that had online connectivity and is still active with updates. Just power up your PC and play there, of course don't be surprise if you get a visit from the authority either.

Complicated process but at least it beats sending the thing back to Nintendo to do the transfer for you. Fortunately with an account system already in place, you would think Nintendo would had just let us transfer our account to the new system rather than just remove and copy every piece of data.

retro_player_22 commented on Rumour: A Planned 2.5D Metroid Title For 3DS G...:

A 2.5D Metroid for the 3DS would be very awesome, just don't make it like Metroid: Other M where Team Ninja tried to add some kind of emo sense of a background to Samus. Samus is a lone bounty hunter, she should never fall below the feet of another no name hunter.

retro_player_22 commented on We'd Probably Buy This Fan-Made Resident Evil ...:

Man I had been asking for a Resident Evil 2 remake for so long since the day Capcom remake the first Resident Evil for GameCube. Hopefully Capcom support this project like they did Street Fighter X Mega Man, I want this remake so bad (even more so than a FFVII remake). It must become legit, it must. If Capcom wants money, they must support this project.
