SparkOfSpirit commented on Review: Castlevania: Circle of the Moon (Wii U...:

This game is awesome. I also really like Aria, but this is an excellent combination of old school and new school Castlevania that has never really been done before or since.

I'm surprised there are people that like HoD more. That game is a total snooze.

It looks like the assets are updated more than the ones in Onett are.

I still hope there's a chance we can get past stages that didn't make an appearance in Brawl. If they're too difficult to get now then they'll be impossible come the next Smash game and we'll never see a return of Hyrule Castle or Fourside to the series.



SparkOfSpirit commented on Review: Castlevania: Dracula X (Wii U eShop / ...:

Castlevania fans are funny. So far in these comments I've heard that SCIV is garbage, Rondo is garbage, and Dracula X is garbage. Just waiting for someone to say SOTN is garbage next.

It's like you want to argue this series only has one good game in it or something.

Anyway, go easy on the reviewer. It's not like it's as bad as the Double Dragon II review.



SparkOfSpirit commented on Mega Man 7 Storms onto North American Wii U eShop:

We could get Mega Man 8 and X4 Saturn if Sega would add more systems to the VC. Since the 360 could handle NiGHTS, Radiant Silvergun, and Guardian Heroes, I see no reason why the Wii U can't.

It would be nice to have re-releases of Mega Man 9 and 10, too.



SparkOfSpirit commented on From the Forum: To Buy or Not to Buy? SPIKEY W...:

The original video game crash was caused because the market was flooded with awful games that drowned out the good ones.

So things are different now because the games are $0.99 instead of full price despite flooding the market in the exact same way?

I'm not sure I'm following this.

I wasn't aware McDonalds invented the hamburger. I'm glad I came to this discussion to witness such an amazing discovery.

In other news it seems nobody remembers why the video game market originally crashed. If you think it won't ever happen again, then there's not much discussion to be had. When we get to the level of comparing re-skins to games in similar genres as if Radiant Silvergun is a ripoff of R-Type, it's clear the discussion is going nowhere.



SparkOfSpirit commented on September's Club Nintendo Reward Details Are C...:

At this point I have so many coins that I just get whatever they offer. Free coins and sometimes points for the deluxe offer is better than just letting them sit and eventually expire.

That said, unless they offer ALL their games (they've still never offered Yoshi Story, for example, which is a game I'd never pay for) I'm eventually going to run out of games to waste my coins on.



SparkOfSpirit commented on Review: Mega Man X3 (Wii U eShop / Super Ninte...:

This was a great game. It's a bit harder than the first two, but still pretty fun. The bosses get pretty easy after you master them, too. Replays give you many ways to play it from different bosses and hidden items to even a slightly different ending. I really like this one.

Not a bad review, I just don't agree with it.



SparkOfSpirit commented on Feature: The History of Super Smash Bros.:

And now we're pretending Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 is actually balanced. Amazing.

How about we stop these anti-casual anti-competitive attitudes and, like, discuss the series instead? You know, the games themselves instead of trying to make the other side seem stupid?



SparkOfSpirit commented on Nintendo Confirms Two More Virtual Console Tit...:

Super Mario Bros. 3 is also better than most N64 games. The fact of the matter is the NES has a far bigger selection of good games than the less than 20 N64 games the VC will ever see.

I'm still waiting for Mega Man 7. No idea why they're holding back on that one.



SparkOfSpirit commented on Review: Double Dragon II: The Revenge (Wii U e...:

The arcade version of this game is not good. Has anybody ever played it other than me? It's loaded with slowdown and the level design is copy-pasted from the first arcade game. What, pray-tell, does it actually do better than this game except have a more dated art-style? Seriously, I've never heard a proper reason from people who keep propping up the overrated arcade game.

Will never understand the hate this version receives. It does everything better than the arcade version except have flashier graphics. Or are we still in the mentality that the arcade version was always better than the console version? I would have thought Jackal, Trojan, and Bionic Commando would show people that superior gameplay and level design beats graphics every time.

Glad to see everyone here except @River3636 and his over-dramatic hate agrees. It's still a fun game nowadays.
