StarDust4Ever commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Brings Circ...:

I've owned two 3DSs (an original launch console and an xL) which I'e never had any probs out of the circle pad.

My one complaint is the pad is too slick, ie they need to give it some texture so it doesn't slide out from under my finger if my thumb gets sweaty. It's also an issue speed-running Mario levels on the Wii-U gamepad. I wish the Wii-U thumbsticks were concave like a PS3 instead of convex.

Zero issues with durability. Also it is possible Suerglue may be too acidic as it may corrode rubber or make it brittle. e7000 or another craft glue will create a strong bond but possibly have a gentler Ph that won't attack the rubber pad.

Also Smash Bros was designed friom the ground up as a console game. It will assuredly play better on Wii-U than 3DS, although there may be enough exclusive content for die-hard fans to get both versions. If you own a Wii-U, I'd get that version even if you have to wait longer.

@joey302 I accepted long ago that Japan gets far more and better games than we ever will. I also have a nice collection of Famicom and Super Famicom carts. Turbografx is too expensive to collect for so I have a US TG-16 and a flash cart loaded with US and Jap ROMs. Sadly no CD unit but oh well...

@IceClimbers There needs to be a lot more hat-eating then! I remember arguing with a guy on VC Forums a few years back (2009 I believe), that SMRPG would be released on Labor day as the 250th VC game, and he said he'll eat his helmet if it came to pass (his avatar was a hamster wearing a helmet). I'll bet that helmet was super duper yummy, too... ;)

Well written review. Despite the game isn't good, I'm glad you didn't go full tilt sarcasm like many of the 1-stars. Glad you dug deeper to show the game does have some redeeming qualities. I own the original for NES but I won't be getting this for Wii-U. :p

@joey302: Say what, Japan has turbo games? I thought they only got the PC Engine! ;) Where's all our Turbo, Sega, N64 VC games that are only accessible in Wii-mode?

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
