sykotek commented on Weirdness: Theories on the Inside of a Poké Ball:
sykotek commented on The Story of an Abandoned Mega Man FPS, Maveri...:
That looked awful.
I know with all the cancellations, Mega Man fans really want a new Mega Man game, but you can't blindly complain about it every time a Mega Man game gets canned..., sometimes it's for a good reason.
Seriously, who wants to play a generic Mega Man FPS anyways, ugh. Just go play Halo or Conduit or something.
sykotek commented on Virtual Boy Title Bound High Goes Into Product...:
@Starwolf_UK: Thanks for providing the link. I was interested and at $75, I would've purchased one for sure, but the shipping charge really kills it for me on this one. At just a hair short of a hundred dollars, I can't do it.
sykotek commented on Wii Mini Is Official And Has No Online Connect...:
No online, eh? That's very curious. Will I at least be able to install games for faster loading/less drive wear? If so, I'm sold... should've made the controllers two tone too though. ...mmm, those colors remind me of the Virtual Boy.
sykotek commented on North America, Award Yourself This Kirby Medal:
@BossJumpMad: Despite having been the one who made that picture, I totally forgot all about it until now.
sykotek commented on New Professor Layton Title Confirmed for iOS a...:
I'm going to wait and see how the game looks and plays on Android before I consider purchasing it. ...hopefully they'll be reasonably priced though, I'm not paying more than $5 for a phone app.
I dunno... I'm thinking instead of putting it up, they should've just given these away to people who registered the upcoming Kirby set like how they did with the Zelda soundtrack a while back.
sykotek commented on The Binding of Isaac Creator Still Thinks the ...:
I wouldn't get all worked up about it. Since religion is mostly based around where you are brought up geographically, there's really no telling if you're backing the right deities until you've officially run out of time.
With that said though...
Food for thought.
sykotek commented on Rumour: Sega Is Working On Skies of Arcadia Re...:
I'd be okay with either an HD remake or a quality made sequel!!!
I just had a sad realization,
if SoA is a HD remake, Legends will be paid DLC
if SoA is a sequel, it'll be episodic DLC: Episode I, Episode II...
No longer want.
@Linkstrikesback: Definitely, I would too! I think it'd be a win-win for all! Just wanted to point out that you wouldn't be limited to just playing either TBoI: Uncensored or TBoI: Sugary Sweets Edition either, imagine being able to make your own custom sprites for the game... I mean, at its core, it's just an Adventure game with Rogue-like elements. I think it'd stop the complaining and bring in a new audience.
I have the perfect solution to this! Just release the game with all the sprites changed to family friendly sprites.
Instead of Isaac, change it to a smiley faced cherub.Instead of shooting out tears, have him toss out heart tipped arrows.Instead of fighting demons, have unicorns and rainbow colored ponies and happy clouds and trees and stuff.Instead of enemies exploding, have them swoon or fall asleep.Instead of vomiting blood as an attack, have him vomit rainbows.Instead of gory environments, have them be happy kiddy environments.
...and then include a sprite editor or QR code scanner with the ability to scan for the original uncensored version, host those codes on Team Meat's website behind disclaimers and EULAs and stuff and releasing Nintendo from responsibility for that content. That stuff gets downloaded to an SD card as a custom mod.
Those that just want to play the uber friendly sugar sweet, non offensive version of the game can get that on eShop and those that know better and want to unlock the original uncensored graphics have no one but themselves to blame for downloading them to their own SD card.
All problems solved!
sykotek commented on Kirby Fans Suck Up World Record At Pax:
I never learned how to blow bubbles with bubblegum, this makes me sad.
sykotek commented on We've Got Your Japanese Nintendo Direct Guide ...:
Iwata better be careful, it looks like Akuma is nearby.
sykotek commented on Intrepid Programmer Brings Super Mario Bros. t...:
The music is pretty good actually, the stage layout...eh, not even close. One improvement though...you can scroll left!!
sykotek commented on Team Ninja Interested in Another Nintendo Coll...:
sykotek commented on New Spy Hunter Trailer Revs Up The Action:
@Oregano and @moomoo: Pretty sure the graphics in the video are not coming from the 3DS version of the game.
The tune is Peter Gunn.
sykotek commented on Feature: DS Games We Want on Wii U:
sykotek commented on Competition Winners: Toki Tori - Game Boy Colo...:
Congrats to the winners! They were well deserved wins!
...in the end, I guess I didn't really need yet another copy of Toki Tori...time to go drown my sorrows in a bucket of the Colonel finest.
sykotek commented on Grab a Gold Nunchuk from US Club Nintendo:
@Gamesake: The Gold Race Wheel was never officially made available to North America...I mean, unless you're counting the Japanese Club Nintendo prizes on eBay...
Besides...what would Link ever need a Gold Race Wheel for...?
Anyways, if it ever is made available though, I should be able to easily modify my pic to add it in!
sykotek commented on EarthBound's Virtual Console No-Show Could Be ...:
They can't sell it...Give it to us for FREE!!! C'mon Club Nintendo!
I had to get one... I needed it to complete my collection.
sykotek commented on Actually, New Super Mario Bros. 2 May Not Take...:
I don't believe it...someone send me a code and I'll post my fastest time!
sykotek commented on Legend of Zelda Prototype Cartridge Posted on ...:
I see a test cart. I've seen Zelda test carts before...with labels. For what reason would one presume this is a prototype and not simply a test cart with a label that has been replaced and scribbled upon? It's not as though I have the money, but even if...it wouldn't make the slightest sense to spend such a ridiculous amount on what could be faked for a lot less...unless I was planning to blend it...
sykotek commented on Pre-Order Harvest Moon: A New Beginning, Get a...:
I buy all the Harvest Moon and assorted spinoff games, but it's pretty difficult to justify preordering them when I know GameStop employees in my area have been pilfering my preorder bonus plushes for years.
sykotek commented on Bonsai Barber is a Snip at 150 Coins on US Clu...:
I bought this when it was first released. It may not look like much in screens, but it is quite fun.
sykotek commented on Nintendo Offering Incentives for Retail Downlo...:
Donkey Kong? Psssh... Give me EarthBound and I'll download all my games from the eShop from now on, lol.
sykotek commented on Grab Your Kirby 20th Anniversary Puzzle Swap P...:
Not sure if I should spend my near 300 coins buying up the blue puzzle pieces for this new puzzle... StreetPass Mii Plaza loses a bit of its magic when you're all finished with puzzles.
I wonder when they going to update Find Mii again? I only have 6 hats to go.
sykotek commented on New Marvel Avengers Media Assembles:
Trailer is meh, but I've been checking out the images. So, what is this exactly? A fighting game? It kinda reminds me of ...Rise of the Imperfects.
sykotek commented on Starship Defense is Your New US Club Nintendo ...:
@HeroOfCybertron: Did I say R button? Maybe I meant the L button. In the end though, both did the same thing which is speed up the game and both of my shoulder buttons died on my launch DSi anyway, so I must've been a bit confused when I wrote that.
It was a pretty good game though, even scored an 8/10 here on NL. It's kinda sad to see everyone here dismissing it especially with what other questionable titles the US Club Nintendo has offered in the past.
sykotek commented on Adventure Time Collector's Edition is Full of ...:
The game is pretty darn good actually and it is probably the main contributing reason the R button died on my DSi back when it was first released.
sykotek commented on Europe's Club Nintendo Gets Real-Life Mario Ka...:
@Highwinter: I'm trying real hard to read and comprehend your comment, but all I can see are European exclusive Club Nintendo Mario Kart 7 trophies. XD
sykotek commented on Angry Birds Trilogy to Cost $29.99:
Even if I didn't already get some of them for free (thanks Amazon) and had to pay for them all on Android, it'd only cost me $4 and that's counting Angry Birds: Space!
Even if I were to spring for all four of the Android HD versions that'd still only cost me $12 total.
For $30 and for only the first 3 games, they should really say what extra content it includes to justify a 10x increase in cost over existing iOS and Android versions.
European Nintendo fans, you win. Now, anytime I hear any complaints from you about anything, I'll think back to these trophies...and how much I hate you guys...I mean...how jealous I feel. (not really)
sykotek commented on Review: The Amazing Spider-Man (3DS):
I knew something was wrong when retailers had the price of the 3DS version of The Amazing Spider-Man at the same price as the Nintendo DS version.
sykotek commented on You Can Transfer Wii VC Games to Wii U:
Still not sold. Gonna wait, just in case they pull a Sony.
sykotek commented on Support Redux: Dark Matters Kickstarter and it...:
I love SHMUPs, but this game doesn't really look all that special to me in my honest opinion.
I mean,...would I play it? Sure....would I buy it? Sure....would I pay to fund it? No.
This whole Kickstarter thing is kind of a bust for me.
sykotek commented on Talking Point: Should Zelda Go Episodic?:
Games are taking too long to make? You can't keep up with the latest technology? Forget going episodic. Give me a good story in 2D with existing polygons or sprites. C'mon Nintendo, I already buy your stuff, you should know by now that I don't give a care about graphics.
sykotek commented on Iwata Defends Identical Digital and Retail Prices:
@grimbldoo: Seppuku is also known as harakiri (腹切り, "cutting the belly"), a term more widely familiar outside Japan, and which is written with the same kanji as seppuku, but in reverse order with an okurigana. In Japanese, the more formal seppuku, a Chinese on'yomi reading, is typically used in writing, while harakiri, a native kun'yomi reading, is used in speech.
More bad decisions. At this rate Iwata will be committing seppuku by the end of the year.
sykotek commented on Hi-Ya! It's Johnny Kung Fu Trailer Number Two:
Well, it certainly looks good.
The non-G&W style gameplay in the trailer is reminiscent of another one of their recent 3DSWare games...
sykotek commented on Google Maps 8-bit for NES:
Of Google April Fools jokes, I liked this one the best because they actually released an app for it also.
sykotek commented on Spirit Camera Event Set to Haunt San Francisco:
While this may be a very good opportunity for me to get Street Passes...50%-100% chance of rain tonight...nah.
sykotek commented on First Epic Mickey 3DS Screen Shows Scrooge McDuck:
sykotek commented on Interview: Super Fighter Team - Developing for...:
...shooting, platforming, sliding, boss battles, and different weapons? Man, that sounds Mega cool. I'd gladly support them if they ever decided to release their games on VC or on Steam, but I don't think they want my non-console purist money.
sykotek commented on Kid Icarus: Uprising Won't be Available from G...:
It is obvious that they're going out of business. Those of you who shop with GAME/Gamestation, I'd start pulling my pre-order money now if I were you.
sykotek commented on Capcom Japan Reprints GameCube Game Gotcha Force:
Looks like it is just in time for the big super mecha crossover game.(Armored Core/Custom Robo/Gotcha Force/MSGundam/Super Robot Taisen/Virtual On)
sykotek commented on Dragon Quest Monsters 3D Bundle on the Way to ...:
It's alright, but I think I would've preferred a design more like this, one that takes into account the external camera lens and incorporates it into the image.You'll need to use your imagination a bit...and pardon my lack of MS Paint drawing skills.
sykotek commented on Nintendo Rejects The Binding of Isaac:
It's a fun game. Controversial for sure, but pretty fun.
In this case, I think Nintendo is doing the right thing for Nintendo. Imagine the poopstorm they would get into when the fanatics begin freaking out about it...and about the children, won't someone think of the children!?
Anyways, it's not the type of attention Nintendo needs to attract...ever. I mean, honestly, who didn't see this coming?
If anyone seriously thought this would get released on the eShop, they really need a heavy dose of reality.
