We had so many Mario RPGs on 3DS now we don't need another one. Now for Wii U, that would be great, not a Thousand Year Door remake or anything but a new Super Mario RPG or Paper Mario (not Super Paper Mario) sequel in HD would be awesome.

retro_player_22 commented on Bandai Namco Celebrates the 20th Anniversary f...:

Though I love the Tales games, playing through them kinda felt the same, my only few favorites are Phantasia (SNES), Destiny (PS1), Destiny 2 (PS2, not Eternia), Symphonia (GameCube), Abyss (PS2, 3DS), Hearts (DS, not the Vita version), Innocence (DS), Vesperia (Xbox 360), and Narikiri Dungeons trilogy (GBA). Would be great if there's one for Wii U but at this point I am tired of the Tales games, those games keep dragging on and on way too long.

retro_player_22 commented on Review: Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley (3DS):

Man the more I see the Harvest Moon series progress the more it look like a flash game. Natsume should fired whoever is working on these games and start giving us the Harvest Moon we know and love. HM needs to get away from the kiddy look and start looking more like an RPG, the kiddy look kills it.

retro_player_22 commented on Mysterious Murasame Castle's Takamaru Was Cons...:

"Takamaru is virtually unknown outside of Japan because the game he starred in never got released in the west."

What a mediocre excuse, Marth, Roy, and Lucas all were basically unknown when they were in Super Smash Bros. and look how popular their series get, only thing is Mother is at its end and Fire Emblem is getting more games. Also no one over here knows of him? Ummm...he was in Samurai Warriors 3 for Wii and had a theme mini-game in Nintendo Land as well.

retro_player_22 commented on New Nintendo 3DS Exploit Makes Japanese System...:

I don't get this exploit, if you're buying a New 3DS from Japan anyways then shouldn't you already got region free? I mean really you got both a Japanese New 3DS and you got the New 3DS XL over here. You could already play games from both regions and without the need for that one crappy game.

retro_player_22 commented on Guide: Everything We Know So Far About Nintend...:

@potatomage7 I think Nintendo is simply just using the mobile platform to help them promote their games. If anything Nintendo is making miniature versions of their games on mobile so the casual crowd will have a chance to experience what a Nintendo game will play like and besides the mobile platform is an advertising billboard for Nintendo. They could just spam ads in their mobile offering in an attempt to persuade the casual crowd to play the actual full games on their dedicated systems (Wii U, 3DS, New 3DS, NX) or release waterdown version of full game so to persuade them to try the full version on their dedicated systems. Also Nintendo is not pulling in new audience here, these same audience were those that once game with the Wii, Nintendo simply invade their platform in an attempt to bring them back to gaming and making waterdown version games for them may persuade them to come back. Something like this:

Chances are Nintendo is using mobile to release waterdown version of games that would be release for 3DS, Wii U, and NX with promotional ads in those so casual people could get the full game on the actual system. I sense this is Nintendo's way of trying to get the casual audience back to playing the actual systems again. Imagine if Nintendo release a Super Smash Bros. 5 game for mobile with just six characters, tons of ads, and minimal contents for the mobile version. If casuals wants the full experience with the full 40-50 character roster, more stages, stage editor, story mode, online play, trophies, and more contents, they had to get the NX version or the Wii U version or wherever Super Smash Bros. 5 will release for. Well at least this will shut many analysis up about Nintendo not supporting mobile, either way Nintendo gets their money.

@Quorthon You talk like I was interest in this game, I'm simply saying this would had help Sega more had they also release this game for Wii U and 3DS as well. Limiting themselves away from platforms mean not all audience will get the chance to experience it and thus Sega won't benefit anything from it. The thing about Sega games is that they don't sell well, even when they release their games on multiple platforms, financial burden always find their way to them.

Remember that unlike Nintendo, Sega had released more games on other platforms than any out there both as a first and third party, there's literally SMS games, Genesis games, Sonic games, Vectorman, Streets of Rage, Altered Beast, Golden Axe, Virtua Fighter, Dreamcast games, etc., on almost every platforms out there, this includes every consoles (Dreamcast, PS2, PS3, PS4, Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, GameCube, Wii, Wii U), handhelds (NeoGeo Pocket Color, Game.com, Game Gear, N-Gage, GBA, DS, 3DS), PC, OnLive, Ouya, mobile, smartphones, LCD games, etc.

There's literally no platform without a Sega game yet all these Sega games doesn't profit anything for Sega, Sega pretty much gave all of these away (even go as far as including over 40 old games for Xbox 360 and PS3 in an ultimate collection) and still if you check back a few weeks ago, Sega here in NA is now in financial woe. They are having constant layoffs, lots of employees lost their jobs, and Sega closed down a few of its old locations. You would think that for a company that had games everywhere that the money will benefit them but nah, the thing about Sega is that just because they released games everywhere doesn't mean people will buy it. Though there are many people who want Sega to release games for those consoles, those same people doesn't buy them. My brother want Sega to released the Ultimate Collection for Xbox 360 and Sega did, but did my brother ever buy it, heck no. He got those on emulator on his smartphone already, he ain't gonna bother getting the collection and his Xbox 360 broke already so even if he did buy it he won't be able to play it anyways.

This is why Sega is dying, you don't just make a game then completely skip a console that is 100% about gaming. Who would buy this game on the other systems, those audience there care too much about their shooters and online multiplayer they're not gonna buy this especially a mediocre platform game that is release for platform that are not popular for platforming titles. You already lost San Francisco Sega, don't lose Los Angeles too.

retro_player_22 commented on 3D Out Run Developers Talk Over Bringing Class...:

@KnightRider666 I'm sure Nintendo has other projects to work on for their new handheld over releasing 3D version of very old games for their new handhelds. For Nintendo, those 3D NES games are simply just experiments Nintendo made to give 3rd party something to work on with the 3D feature and since Sega love that idea, it's a good thing that they give it much love.

As long as 3rd party love it, Nintendo can just leave it to them. Besides I rather Nintendo continue working on new projects for their platform than continue spicing up their old games, games we play countless times already. Sure it would be nice to play a 3D version of games like Mach Rider, Metroid, Legend of Zelda, and Super Mario Bros. 3 but at this point I rather prefer them started making a new F-Zero, Wave Race, Mario RPG, Sin and Punishment, Kirby, Wario Land, Eternal Darkness, etc., for Wii U and/or 3DS.

Hopefully we see some Nintendo guest star too, Meta Knight, Ganondorf, Link, Donkey Kong, Kirby, etc., would be a nice touch to the game. For PC version, I wouldn't surprise to see a Duke Nukem, a Minecraft, or a Lara Croft guest star, that would be cool.

@RainbowGazelle I think he once said that, that is up to Nintendo (in terms of The Last Story getting a sequel). A slight proof that Nintendo own The Last Story and not him or Mistwalker. Here's the original article.

http://mynintendonews.com/2014/09/01/sakaguchi-says-a-new-last-story-title-would-be-up-to-nintendo/

Oh and he wants to see the game for PlayStation 4 too, just take that as a wishful thinking of his.

Aw... does this mean there will be no Blue Dragon 2 and Lost Odyssey 2? Please Sakaguchi change your mind, I love those two games and wish for a sequel for each. Maybe not a direct sequel but an entry sequel like Final Fantasy where it is a new story but using the same idea, gameplay, and stuff.

I guess the price may vary but I had a silver one which I bought on ebay for around $70.

@Djreisat I recently bought one on ebay two months ago. It's from TTX, make sure it's the one that had the Super Famicom style buttons and not the light and dark purple one (cuz those ones sucks).

This one:

Not this one:

Cuz the light and dark purple one had a very flimsy d-pad, on fighting games like Street Fighter II if you press forward, your character will jump instead of move, this was fix on the other controller (the above one).

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.
