StarDust4Ever commented on Guide: New Nintendo 3DS - Everything We Know S...:

There are some big questions that remain unanswered. Will the new 3DS retain backwards compatability with DS/DSi? If not, that's a deal breaker for me.

Nintendo nerfed GB support on the GBA Micro, GBA support was canned as of the release of DSi, and Game Cube compatability was removed from Model 2 Wiis.

Another question: if the 3DS 2 uses camera based eye-tracking tools to move the 3D "sweet spot" around, will this be of any use to me if I'm gaming in the dark? 3DS light sensitivity was even worse than the abysmal .3 mega-pixel resolution. IMO, it should support at minimum 1.3 Mp (1280x1024 or 1280x960) to remain relavent, even if the screens are still 240p.



StarDust4Ever commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against Re...:

I've got flash drives for NES (PowerPak), Famicom, SNES, Genny, TG-16 (Everdrive), and Atari 2600 (Harmony). In the case of TG-16, the game cards are so stupid expensive that I gave up trying to collect for it and instead preloaded my Everdrive with R0Mz. Great tech overall and it's often possible to sample demos, hacks, translations, protos, and homebrews. If a homebrew is available on cart, I usually try to support the devs by buying it. Definitely much more fun than PC emulators. ;)



StarDust4Ever commented on PDP GameCube-Styled Wired Fight Pad For Wii U ...:

@Kaze_Memaryu Believe me, I've got a box full of spare Game Cube controllers. The Madcatz controllers (from way back when clone companies actually made quality products that rivaled the originals) are actually my favorite. I'm not really planning on getting the SSB game at launch but the Game Cube controllers were my preferred controller for N64 VC games, and the RetroUSB SNES adapter for SNES VC games. Obviously the Game Cube controllers or VC adapters are of little use since I transferred my download Wii games to Wii-U. Of course I keep them around for Game Cube games but finters crossed the USB dongle is backwards compatible to Wii software as this would be incredibly useful to me.



StarDust4Ever commented on PDP GameCube-Styled Wired Fight Pad For Wii U ...:

Can anybody tell me if the Game Cube Adapter will be compatible with Wii/VC software? I have an awesome Game Cube to SNES converter I used to use on Wii-VC, but now that all my games are transfered to Wii-U, I cannot use it except for playing Game Boy games on the 'Cube. I don't really want the wannabe Game Cube controller if the USB Game Cube dongle works in Wii mode. If the USB Game Cube dongle doesn't work with Wii/Wii-VC software and only good for Wii-U/SSB, then it's useless to me and I may have to settle for the Game Cube wannabe controller for playing old VC games.



StarDust4Ever commented on Review: Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land (Wii U ...:

I remember picking up Kirby's Nightmare in Dreamland in 2004 and being disappointed in it's being a remake of the NES classic, which I had just played for the first time in 2003. All my favorite minigames from the NES original were replaced with lame multiplayer games with cheap AI. Where's mah toy crane? :'( IMO there's not much reason to buy this port if you've already downloaded the NES classic Kirby's Adventure. Get Kirby's Adventure for NES and Kirby's Amazing Mirror for GBA instead...



StarDust4Ever commented on Buck Rogers SNES Prototype Materializes:

@DenisNinja Short answer: you can't. DKC 1,2,3 were pulled from the Wii shop in 2012 shortly before Wii-U launched. The good news was if you have them on Wii, the license could still be transferred over to Wii-U. I had downloaded the first one (wish I had the others) before it got pulled. Oh well; I can just play them on SNES as I have the original carts. Derp. :p



StarDust4Ever commented on Culture Cal Hopes to Celebrate The Holidays Wi...:

I can't imagine this will be successful. The guy behind it has passion and the build quality is very nice, however it's just not really a desirable piece to own IMO. If this guy redirected his energy in a new direction, I could see it being a hit item.



StarDust4Ever commented on Review: Pac-Land (Wii U eShop / NES):

@ToxieDogg You say the PC Engine port of PacLand has an option to use joystick/Dpad control?

I have PacLand for TurboGrafx. Assuming it's an identical port, where's the option to change the controls? I had quite fun with the Lynx port when I was a teenager (which had normal controls), but it's hard to play with inverted controls.

I also own the original Famicom port as well. Either way, the controls are very frustrating for what was otherwise a decent platformer.



StarDust4Ever commented on Weirdness: Classic Game Characters Part of Art...:

Been obsessed with Mario Kart lately. I could see someone doing Mario Kart makeovers of road signs. Instead of "Slippery when wet," have a "Banana Peel Area" sign. "Speed Checked by Radar" could be "Beware of Blue Spiny!" Here's some more: "Resume Speed" = "Mushroom Boost Zone" "Falling Rocks" = "Likatu Sighting..." :D



StarDust4Ever commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Should Beware the Slip...:

Really guys, it's not like this hasn't been done before. Turtles II for NES had Pizza Hut signs plastered everywhere:
I don't believe any teens or parents playing Turtles back in the day seriously took offence to the Pizza Hut signs.

The Mercedes doesn't look realistic at all, more like a kid's power wheel. Fits right in with all the other rediculous vehicles in the game, and there are some rediculous looking cart combos. Think Bowser driving the biddybuggy with roller whells.

Oh well. The Mercedes will become my preferred target whenever I battle online, Mhu-ha-ha!!! :D



StarDust4Ever commented on Review: ATV Fever (DSiWare):

They're still making DSi-ware? I stopped buying DSiWare long time ago because my DSi got full. When I transferred the software to my 3DS, I didn't have much room left for new titles, so now with WiFi already turned off, it's really a bust. 3DS is 3 years old and software runs directly off the SD card. Really kind of ignorant to still be releasing DSiWare. All of the good developers have moved on already. Nothing to see here.



StarDust4Ever commented on Mercedes DLC Confirmed for Mario Kart 8 in the...:

I don't get what the big deal is. The Mercedes will probably have zero base stats like the standard cart and standard wheels combo. Though if Nintendo gave it souped up stats, I would be POed. I believe we have found a new target for battle mode: anyone driving around in a Mercedes will get pummeled with items!
