Stuffgamer1 commented on These Official Wisdom Tree T-Shirts Are So Bad...:

@sketchturner: I'm with you there. I also like the Bible Buffet one, though...it's pretty tempting.

For those who are not aware, a new 20th anniversary version of Super Noah's Ark 3D is actually on Steam Greenlight right now. It's quite interesting to see Wisdom Tree coming back into the public eye, especially as a legit fan of some of their work.

Stuffgamer1 commented on Nintendo Download: 24th July (North America):

@SparkOfSpirit: I had no idea this had ever happened before...that makes me feel a little better about it.

@brooks83: I didn't know there were any problems with it. I DO know that since it was a PAL import, it actually ran at 50hz on Wii...I compared it to the Japanese version and the difference was obvious. Are you talking about that or something else?

Stuffgamer1 commented on Nintendo Download: 24th July (North America):

What the heck? I went to the eShop to grab Ufouria...which I already had on Wii. Unlike every other game I've ever tried to upgrade, it still wants to charge me the full $5. Anybody else having this problem?

Stuffgamer1 commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

My reward for spending a lot of money on Nintendo products is...a free download of a bunch of games I already own. WAY TO GO, MORONS! After all the previous years' rewards, this could only be a bigger letdown if they said "sorry, your Elite status gets you NOTHING this year." I thought the point of a customer loyalty program was to make people HAPPY they're spending so much money on you...

@Spartacus3765: Don't forget Doc Louis' Punch-Out!! the first year...that's what I took instead of the hat. Sure, it was a downloadable game...but it wasn't available any other way!

Stuffgamer1 commented on Harvest Moon 3 And Lufia: The Legend Returns R...:

So we're finally getting some Lufia on VC...and they start with the THIRD? The one comprised almost entirely of rouguelike-style randomly generated dungeons and honestly goes on too long for its own good. It has some interesting systems, but I've never finished it. Oh well, probably give it another go anyway.

Stuffgamer1 commented on Rusty's Real Deal Baseball Has Some Interestin...:

The kid in the background seems superfluous, but I suspect they changed the dog in an effort to avoid misinformed claims of "racism" for the original design. It's sad, but I bet someone would make that argument otherwise, unaware and/or uncaring the game came from Japan in the first place.

Stuffgamer1 commented on Best Buy's 20% eShop Card Discount is Back:

I'm no Best Buy regular...but this deal is enough to make me go there now and then. That said, I still have a good bit left on my account from the LAST time this deal ran...sad result of such slow releases. So I really don't NEED more right now anyway.

Stuffgamer1 commented on Remake Request: ActRaiser:

This is definitely a classic for me, and I do very much want to see it on Wii U VC at the least...but we still have NO Squenix Wii U VC support outside of Japan so far... sigh

Stuffgamer1 commented on Matters of Import: Dessert-Based Adventures Wi...:

@Mk_II: True, the copyright is in place...but a company can't PROSECUTE without showing damages, and if they aren't selling you the product, there are no damages to be shown. It's a weird legal loophole, but very useful for retro fans who don't want to see obscure games fade for no good reason.

I have played the fan translation of this game...of course, there's only one way to do that, and I'm sorry if it offends some of you for some bizarre reason. Let it be known that I would gladly pay for the game if it WAS released in English...for whatever that's worth.

Stuffgamer1 commented on Mighty No. 9 Studio Comcept Facing Fan Backlas...:

@TheGZeus: THANK YOU! I'm amazed I had to go THAT far down to finally see the word "egalitarian" used. For the record, everybody, the definition of the word:

"of, relating to, or believing in the principle that all people are equal and deserve equal rights and opportunities."

For the record also, I too wish gender could be easily ignored...but that's COMPLETELY unrealistic. It could certainly be handled better than it is now, but total literal equality is literally impossible due to biology. In order for us to be truly equal, we'd have to be gender-non-specific...like snails. :P

You wanna stand up for equal rights? Great! But don't use a gender-charged word to do so. As it stands, I don't have a problem with this woman getting a job YET. I WILL have a problem when and if any Social Justice Warrior activity seeps into the job itself. She's a community manager, and she can NOT afford to rile up this kind of hate and discontent in said community.

Stuffgamer1 commented on Parent Trap: Children Are Our Future, So Let T...:

Funny...when I played the Baseball game with my brother, I kicked his donkey very unsubtly and we agreed it wasn't worth returning to. Honestly I don't think there's all that much to come back to on Wii Party U in general...certainly not like I would have hoped. But let's be fair, here...I'm the youngest in the house at 24, so mileage may vary wildly by age.

A game we DO keep coming back to is Sketch in Game & Wario. So simple, but loads of fun anyway. :)

Stuffgamer1 commented on Packaged Physical Release of Wii Sports Club M...:

If they're smart, they'll make up for the retail package forcing purchase of ALL the games by making it cheaper than the full set on the eShop...but then if they were really smart the prices would've been lower in the first place, so I wouldn't count on it. :P

Stuffgamer1 commented on Review: Goof Troop (Super Nintendo):

This is the co-opingest game ever. ;)

I grew up playing with my brother...he always took Goofy while I played Max. We've been through it many times, but it's always a blast.

On another note...we NEVER got tired of the music. I consider this game an outstanding example of SUPERB composition, because it takes some serious skill to not annoy the player with music in less than one-minute loops that plays for the entire level like this.

Stuffgamer1 commented on Super Mario Bros. 3 Is Leaping To The Wii U An...:

Not only have these listings been on the site for WEEKS, they already announced the game for VC by the end of the year in a Nintendo Direct a while ago. So what part of this is newsworthy?

@brooks83: In my experience, the Wii had weird color issues with NES across the board that the Wii U does nor share. So I don't think it should be an issue.

Stuffgamer1 commented on Review: Clu Clu Land (Wii U eShop / NES):

@VoiceOfReason: Because SOME of us like this game, and Nintendo wants to sell to us. Granted, I think it'd be even better if ALL of the good games were released, but we take what we can get. I was truly happy to see we were getting Clu Clu Land, and I can see I'm not alone.

"It becomes even more difficult in later stages, where finding gold becomes much more challenging; not only will you have to pass through a gold location twice for it to be uncovered, but you must also avoid going back over it afterwards, as doing so will rebury it!"

Dang, I've never gotten far enough to see all that happen! :o

Stuffgamer1 commented on Working With Western Developers Is All About T...:

Had to look up Monster Games. Nowhere near the level of the other two, but they're okay. For those who don't know (like myself until just now): The Excite series since Truck and Pilotwings Resort. Kinda pales compared to Metroid Prime and Luigi's Mansion, huh? :P

Anyway yeah, more Western team-ups would be good. Expand that portfolio. Fill gaps in release schedules. You can do it, Nintendo...just try already!

Stuffgamer1 commented on Review: Jewel Adventures (DSiWare):

Got a freebie...about an hour and four missions in, no glitches yet. Pretty fun game, but I don't know if it's worth $5 or not. Really just feels odd playing a recent DSiWare release. Wish it was 3DS instead so the resolution would be right. sigh

Stuffgamer1 commented on Nintendo Comments On EarthBound's Inflated Pri...:

I think that defence would work better if there was a precident for variable pricing on Wii U VC...some of the games on there sure aren't worth the asking price. EarthBound totally is though, so I'm not too fussed about it.

@Expa0: Thing is, it actually IS a selling point. Doesn't matter how little you think of it, people ARE that interested in this game.

@Objection: Yeah, Nintendo tends to be out of touch, but I really don't think anybody knows ALL the details abiut the game's delays. At any rate, I don't think "screw them" is an appropriate responce to them FINALLY releasing the game we were begging for.

Stuffgamer1 commented on Ubisoft Will Only Make Games That Can Be Turne...:

Standalone games work just fine if you can build a great reputation for your development team and make a truly excellent game. I think The Last of Us (at least, I'm definitely in the boat hoping it WON'T get sequels...doesn't really make sense to IMO) is a prime example of that.

Stuffgamer1 commented on Soapbox: Retail Games Cost Too Much To Downloa...:

This may or may not have been mentioned already, but Americans ARE used to paying MSRP for new games. NSMBU is still $60 in stores now, barring limited offers. That said, I'm in the camp that thinks the download should be cheaper to make up for reduced cost of sale. Either way, it's kind of a rip-off, which is why I generally prefer physical games.

Stuffgamer1 commented on Forthcoming 3DS eShop Title Tappingo Promises ...:

@HugoSmits: Well, given the actual gameplay mechanic is the IMPORTANT part, you still really haven't told me anything to get me excited for the game. I'd be psyched if you were doing some weird take on Picross like Color Cross did, but I simply don't have enough information to care about your game yet. Hope you understand.
