SezeMakto commented on Majora's Mask and Dr. Mario Join Club Nintendo...:

I am hoping they will do all the games I want eventually and not just the token entries that aren't as popular to generate interest. Like only releasing Majora's Mask so that you "pay" for Ocarina. I have 1000 coins to burn and although I like Majoria's Mask, its not in my top ten most wanted VC games. Thankfully I've yet to get any of them yet.

SezeMakto commented on Nintendo Reconfirms Wii U Will Not Make Wii Ga...:

Really there is no good excuse why you can't play Nintendo games in 720p. Just like why there is no excuse why we can't play Super Mario World 2 on VC. It's very possible, they just don't do it. All the technical excuses are just that, excuses. If they really cared about it, that Wii or Wii U would have the hardware/software needed to do it, it's just not a priority and they never cared about HD. Nintendo is only joining the HD world now as really they have no choice at this point. If they wanted to be cutting edge, Wii would have been HD from the start. And the other consoles do in fact upscale, I've read that Halo is sharper on 360 than running on Xbox 1.

And for those who claim you can't see a difference in resolutions, your TV is too small or your blind. That's like saying the movie theater does not look better than your 480i TV. It does, that's the resolution and size at work more than the projector - you need both size and resolution - think 47"-55" at least. Whether that increase in resolution matters to you for the less textured Nintendo games, that's another story. But for heavily textured games like Uncharted or Blu-Ray movies, HD resolutions are a massive improvement on my 47" HDTV.

It's the same reason why Nintendo fell behind on internet support and the digital space, or even voice acting. They need to step it up or they will always be the second box next to the main system for a lot of gamers.

SezeMakto commented on Review: Tetris (3DS Virtual Console / Game Boy):

My original thoughts from another post:

I'd rather have Tetris DX, same game with 3 upgrades: better interactive music, 3 save files, and a little thing I like called "color". However, this will do, as I never thought they would do a licensed game like Tetris.

Tetris GB is, along with Tetris DX, a Tetris game WITHOUT game breaking infinite spin. Seriously, this saps the frantic fun out of single player if you can infinite spin a single piece for 3.5 hours (which is how long your 3DS battery will last - zing!). So really you need two versions, non-infinate spinning Tetris GB (or Tetris DX) for single player, and online Tetris DS (or Tetris Axis) for multi player.

In my day, if you where on or above level 9, you better have a spot picked out for your piece mighty quick, cus it was falling fast and locking on touchdown. The fun was not in maxing out the score numbers or level speed to teleporting infinite spin time so you could never "die", but in just how long you could last, cus like the Russian in Rocky 4, this Russian game will break you!

There are lots of games from my NES days I would not play today, however this game was very fun back then, it should be at least a 5 out of ten. 3 is like it never was fun kind of score to me. It's outdated not broken.

SezeMakto commented on Review: Final Fantasy III (Virtual Console / S...:

To follow up, I did play a bit more of Final Fantasy VI (III). Sure enough, the combination of music, story, graphics, for the time above average sprite work and charm factor makes up for the lack of animation compared to Chrono Trigger. I still think playing Final Fantasy VI's battles is like watching a still painting of an enemy wiggle at you, and so far I still think Chrono Trigger edges this out overall as a package (considering the sum of story, battle system, animation, music, sprite work, charm, ETC), but Final Fantasy VI does have a cool vibe and story, enough to earn admittance to my collection as is without a remake. That says quite a bit from me.

IMHO, Final Fantasy VI was such a leap forward, I-V are secondary to it. Certainly the only 2D Final Fantasy I'm interested in at this point in time. Then came Chrono Trigger, which perfected the Square 2D RPG artform. Then came the era of 3D. Aside from FF VI and Chrono Trigger, I'm in Remake / 3D / Modern territory for me to enjoy any old school RPG.

SezeMakto commented on Review: Chrono Trigger (DS):

"Marle gets our noble gentleman of a hero to escort her to the time machine. Unfortunately, the time machine malfunctions and sends Marle into a parallel universe"

I have not played the game recently, however if my memory skills still function this part of the review is completely wrong. It's like your confusing the sequel Chrono Cross with the original game, or simply remembering the game wrong for this review (it's a prominent scene in the very beginning). I'm shocked this still has not been corrected on this site after all this time.

The original purpose of the machine was to teleport a person from one pod to another, just like in the Movie "The Fly". And like in that movie, something in the Pod causes a malfunction. In this case it's Marle's Necklace, which throws her back in time instead. There is no alternate universes in Chrono Trigger (aside from minor DS version only content), that was Chrono Cross's deal. From what I understand, there was a few nods to the sequel in the DS remake, to better tie the two games and their ideas together, but I don't believe they changed the story this much. Chrono Trigger was all about Time Travel in one universe "Back to the Future" style.

However, I have yet to play the DS version, only the SNES version back in the day. I did buy the DS version and will be getting the newly announced Virtual Console version. I'm a big Chrono Trigger fan, if I am wrong, my apologies in advance. However, if I am wrong, time to start checking if I am stuck in an Parallel Universe myself.

IMHO, Chrono Trigger is the greatest RPG ever made, but I'm sure that's the nostalgia speaking a bit. The music was hella good, the sprite work and animation was far more advanced than what was seen in Final Fantasy VI (which is now growing on me in retrospect), and the story was just the right amount of awesome. Some say it's not as deep, but it makes up for any lack of depth with 100% pure charm. And it has a kick ass battle system without random battles! It was my first RPG from the SNES era, the game that made me pay attention to Final Fantasy 7 and up.

So yea, buy Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy whichever number, but buy Chrono Trigger on VC or DS first.

SezeMakto commented on Dig Into Cave Story 3DS on 28th June:

I'm torn on how to experience my first play of Cave Story. Ignoring the free PC version, I still have to choose from Wii, DSi and 3DS versions. Most likely I'll do the 16-Bit-ish Wii, but the improved 3DS presentation is temping as I have no nostalgia to guide my choice. One of the reasons to eventually buy a 3DS I think.

SezeMakto commented on Nintendo Responds to 3DS Black Screen Error:

I'm defiantly waiting now for a 3DS XL. That will give them time to iron out the hardware issues from generation one, and honestly I don't want to go smaller now that I'm digging the huge screens on my DSi XL. And if Nintendo does not give the 3DS some XL love, there is always the NGP with its awesome sauce 5" OLED screen.

I really want to play this awesome game, but until the remake comes (you know it will) where attack parties move across the screen to attack instead of waving at each other, I refuse. But then, that's why Chrono Trigger was my first RPG :) ... So sorry, can't go back to stationary sword waving, it's amazing they didn't fix that at the start of the SNES.
