speedyboris commented on Nintendo Download: 26th February (Europe):

Really surprised that Pac-Attack is coming to Wii U VC, considering that it was part of the Pac-Man Collection. On the other hand, this isn't the first time that Nintendo has released two versions of the same game on the eShop (SMB2; SMAdvance).



speedyboris commented on Nintendo Download: 16th October (Europe):

I did a double take when I saw DKC on the VC list. I thought for sure we wouldn't be seeing those games again for a long long time for whatever reason. Now please, NOA, don't be jerks and withhold the games for months. (and yes, I know it has worked the other way around too. I'm saying the releases between NA and Europe should be concurrent)



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

The only part of the game that sucks is the disappearing platform jumping in level 6, which requires extremely precise timing and distance judging to get right. It was nice to finally be able to pass that part due to save states.



speedyboris commented on Nintendo Download: 24th July (North America):

Ugh, I hate when North America and Europe's Wii U VC releases are out of sync. Now there are FIVE titles I'm waiting for: Super Mario Kart, Mega Man V and VI, Pop'n Twinbee, and Adventure Island. And we won't be getting any of those next week either, since Mega Man Battle Network took the only spot. Just, ugh.



speedyboris commented on It Doesn't Look Like We'll Be Seing Sega Games...:

Disappointing. So what remains to be released after Nintendo inevitably goes through the NES and SNES titles they already released on Wii?
-Genesis: Nope.
-SMS: Nope.
-C64: Highly doubtful, considering they delisted the games from the Wii Shop.
-VC arcade: Also highly doubtful, since they barely took advantage of that platform when it was on.
-Neo Geo: Possibly, but AFAIK Nintendo's made no public announcement that games for that system are coming. I'm not holding my breath.
-Turbo Grafx 16: See Neo Geo.

So what remains? N64 (if it ever gets going) and some more GBA titles are about it. I really don't see Nintendo releasing GC games on the Wii U, despite Reggie saying he'd like to see them.



speedyboris commented on Review: Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island ...:

As far as I'm concerned, this was the better version to put on the Wii U VC: More levels, less annoying Baby Mario, and a few optimizations (remember in the SNES version when you ate a watermelon, there'd be a slight pause? Yeah, there's no delay in this version). About the only negatives I can give it is a bit less pleasing music quality (though hardly a train wreck like some are claiming; at least the tracks sound like their SNES counterparts) and a little more cramped feel. But otherwise I'm perfectly fine with the GBA version being chosen.



speedyboris commented on Capcom Is Aware That We All Want A New Mega Ma...:

Since I already own the two MM collections, plus the first five games on Wii VC and the first four on Wii U VC, I'm not all that interested in buying those specific versions of the games again. However, I would love it if Capcom released The Wily Wars on VC, because we never got that in America outside of the Sega Channel and it has remixed graphics/music.



speedyboris commented on Extended Nintendo Network Maintenance on Wii U...:

Honest question: Why are many assuming this maintenance will come with a major new feature on the eShop (such as more Virtual Console consoles)? When I read the article, I didn't think "Oh boy, new stuff is coming!", I thought, "Bug fixes."



speedyboris commented on Nintendo Download: 27th February (North America):

@Falco Yeah that last sentence was unnecessary and I apologize (hence why I quickly edited it). I was just getting frustrated that you seemed to be reiterating the same point and I felt the need to clarify WHY people would want to play this on Wii U as opposed to Wii Mode.

In other words, I don't think it's unreasonable that people would want to play this straight from their Wii Us.



speedyboris commented on Nintendo Download: 27th February (North America):

@Falco Once again, not everyone wants to boot into Wii Mode to play a game which should've been out months ago. Because then you have to switch gamepads, deal with batteries unless you have a charger stand, and won't get save states or controller config.
