Another runner...
This the kind of stuff that should stay on smartphones.

And talking about retro styled games.
The only indie dev that truly succeeded with creating a retro 8 bit game, is Yacht Club with Shovel Knight. That one really DOES feel like a REAL 8-bit game, that could have been released on the NES back in the day.

The novelty has worn of, and I'm getting sick of these indie pixel games.



Steel76 commented on Talking Point: The Pros, Cons and Questionable...:

If the NX is yet another gimmick console, lacking in power, and fails to bring in the third-party support, then Nintendo is REALLY going to be in trouble.
Doesn't matter how much money they have in the bank, when the rest of the fans give up on them, and leave for the competition.

This is one console I will NOT buy on day one.
The old Nintendo, that I grew up with and loved, are long dead by now...



Steel76 commented on We Can't Release Virtual Console Games Any Fas...:

This is complete bullpoopoocadoodle.
They don't have to reprogram the damn games, just upload the roms that run on the emulators.

Stop giving us lame excuses for all your crappy mistakes, Nintendo.

It's just getting worse for every damn day.



Steel76 commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

The disappointing thing about Star Fox, is that it seems like a remake, using stages from the N64 game etc. Sure there are some new mechanics, but it wasn't enough to excite me. I was hoping for something more spectacular.

And that "Metroid" game? Screw you Nintendo! That was a slap in the face to the fans of the franchise...

I give up... The Wii U is going back into the closet.

Not even gonna bother with the NX, if they keep fooling around like this.

Guess someone else have to give us the "Please Understand" comment, when everything is delayed until 2016 ;)

All kidding aside, I truly hope they have plenty of surprises in stock for us this year.

How about a "Ice Climber Adventure" or "Wrecking Crew Deluxe" ;)



Steel76 commented on Mighty No.9 Looks Rather Neat in This 60fps Tr...:

I wish they had used 2D characters instead, like "Hard Corps Uprising" and the "Ducktales" remake, as the 3D characters and backgrounds just look dull and lifeless to me. The game still looks very empty and unpolished.

I'm glad that I didn't help to back this project.



Steel76 commented on Video: Xenoblade Chronicles X May Have Been Su...:

It´s not only the lighting effects, it´s the textures, and also, a lot of the machines, structures etc, in the background is now gone.

Will this suddenly make it a bad game? Hell no.
I just wish that the developers didn´t go overboard with the trailers, and then later scale back, when the engine can´t handle all those FX.



Steel76 commented on Poll: Is Splatoon a Blockbuster That'll Help R...:

Nope, the only game that could have boosted the Wii U sales this years, especially during X-mas, was the new Zelda.
Let´s hope that Nintendo announce a new 3D Mario game or Metroid.

The new Star Fox might give it a small push though, unless that as well is delayed until 2016...



Steel76 commented on Nintendo Direct Confirmed for 1st April, With ...:

Hope they surprise us with something new, and not only focus on "Splatoon" (which I have no interest in), and if we get another "Please Understand", I will fly over there and kick their asses ;)

Setting my expectations on zero, as usual, and maybe we get lucky this time.



Steel76 commented on Freedom Planet Bringing Its Brand of Sonic-Sty...:

Please GalaxyTrails, remove the voices!!
The game looks awesome, but those voices are going to be VERY annoying.
Keep it old-school, and just use textboxes during cut-scenes.

Edit: After trying the demo, I realized that the voices are just in the intro and cut-scenes.
I feared that they would stop and talk like idiots even during the gameplay ;)

And, btw, the game is AWESOME!!!
Yes, it might look and feel like a Sonic ripoff at first, but it has a lot of new ideas as well.
SEGA should give the Sonic license to these guys.

The graphics are really great, with a lot of scaling and rotation FX.
If SEGA would have released a Sonic game on the NEO GEO, this is what it might have looked like :)



Steel76 commented on Editorial: Nintendo's YouTube Creators Program...:

I´m really getting sick and tired of Nintendo´s greed.
THIS is the reason why so many shy away from Nintendo these days.
All the bullpoopitypoop and bad business decisions.
If they keep up with using their fans like this, then they might end up going the way of SEGA in a not so distant future.

Yes, they still make fun first party games, but they are still just a shadow of their former glory days back in the 80:s and 90:s.

Please stop all this bullpoopitypoop, Nintendo, before you loose more fans, in your ever shrinking fanbase.



Steel76 commented on Sega Looking To Turn Streets Of Rage, Shinobi,...:

How about just making new GAMES in those franchises instead??
There is no limits of how much I miss the old SEGA...
At least the arcade division is still making great games, but sadly most of those stay in Japan.



Steel76 commented on Anniversary: 20 Years Ago Today, Rare Resurrec...:

Would love to see a new "old-school" Donkey Kong game on Wii U, where "Old-School" (Pre-Super) Mario is back, jumping over barrels etc. to rescue Pauline from Donkey Kong again. Kinda like the Game Boy game from back in 1994 :)



Steel76 commented on Video: Early Sonic Boom: Rise Of Lyric Footage...:

I can´t believe it´s been about 20 YEARS since the last GREAT Sonic game.
How f*****g hard is it to go back and just make an old-school 2D game??
It´s what the fans are waiting for, year after year, and NEVER get.
Just give up all this 2,5/3D crap, and just go back to TRUE 2D gameplay.
Stop raping the franchise, SEGA!
How about handing it over to Nintendo?

Glad I still got a working Mega Drive, and the original trilogy of games.



Steel76 commented on Latest Wii U System Update Allows Console To C...:

Come on Nintendo!!!
Add a damn account system, so we can just add our purchases to THAT.
If my Wii U crashes and burns in the future, and I need to buy a new one, then there is no easy way to get those games back, unless I send my old machine to Nintendo.
Playstation and Xbox have had this system for YEARS, this should have been added back in the original Wii days....
Oh well, maybe in 5 years or so ;)



Steel76 commented on Video: More Mighty No. 9 Footage Arrives to Te...:

Ugh...the graphics and colors are so dull.
I wish they had gone with 2D handpainted characters, or at least cellshading. Imagine this with the same kind of engine as "Rayman Legends".
Yes, it´s still work in progress, but for every video, I lose more interest in this game.
The level designs, so far, look nowhere near as great as in the Mega Man games.

Shovel Knight acts more like Mega Man than this.

And voice acting?? There is no need for annoying voice acting in platformers. At least keep it in between the stages, as I hate when they pause the action to talk nonsense in game like this.

Oh well...let´s see if things improve closer to release.
