Syrek commented on New Wii Zelda Artwork Leaked?:

It was stated that this new Zelda takes place in a completly new era, which removes the Twilight Princess sequel or Link from that era. I do feel strongly about that girl being the incarnation of the Master Sword but we'll see if our predicitons were flat out wrong when next year arrives.

Syrek commented on Nintendo Download: Flip Champs, Final Fantasy ...:

FFIV: The After Years and Mighty Flip Champs is what I'll be downloading today. Not sure what to expect from the overall packages from both titles but I have a feeling I will not be disappointed. I'm hoping the FFIV:AY will have reasonable prices in regards to episodes so we won't feel shafted if the final product is only mediocure and we just shelled out over $30.

So far Nintendo is holding up with three Nintendo Downloads in a row that havn't down right sucked. Will Nintendo continue with this trend of good downloads? Only time will tell.

Syrek commented on Japanese Virtual Console list - June 2009:

This is really pissing me off. Nintendo has treated Japan like their the favorite child, giving them a list of VC games in advance, while we are left in the dark with only an ESRB rating to give us hope of a games impending release to europe or America. There is no reason why they cannon do the same for us.

And what exactly is with this 3 VC, 3 WW downloads for Japan? Good grief, its like they think were incompotent and couldn't handle so many downloads for one day. Stop giving us DSi, with the exeption of last monday, and give us some more VC and premium WW titles. Learn how to market properly Nintendo!!!

Sorry, I just had to get that off my chest. It's been bugging me for sometime now and this massive amount of content plus a list just made me infuruated about how were being shafted.

Syrek commented on Check Out Some Final Fantasy IV: The After Yea...:

Episodic content is a fickle mistress and I say this with complete certainty. On the one hand you have episodic games or content if you will that is successful like the Half Life episodes where the length is appropriate, there is enough gameplay to sate you for the next installment, and lastly you get your bang for your buck and aren't tricked into selling your soul or anything as tramtic. Then you have episodic games or content which does the complete opposite and makes you feel like the company of said game or content just raped you in a dark alley while taking all your money.

Square has done a bit of episodic content or games, most recently the Crystal Defender games so they have some understanding of the episodic nature in which they are diving into.......I hope. Personally I enjoy the R1 and R2 games because of their addicting gameplay and FF Tactics feel but thats just me. To be perfectly honest, I will most like buy each episode of this game when it comes out because I liked FFIV so much and I'm sure Square knows this will be eaten up regardless of reviews or the cost.

@KnucklesSonic8- I've played R1 and R2 and if your into tower defense games or their gameplay and Final Fantasy you'll most likely enjoy it. I believe its worth the download and you do get what you pay, just in case you were wondering. The Nintendo Life Review definatly nails the first game on the head and the second improves on some of the lows of the first game so thats nice. I would definatly put it up there with the top 10 for sure in my opinion.

Finally!!! lol. Nintendo really knows how to make people question their sanity. Anyways, I must thank Nintendo for an awesome VC and Wiiware download. I will be downloading Majora and R2 for sure since I really liked R1 but I'm not sure about the silver or DSiware game. But whatever, two really good downloads is more than enough for me..........at least for now ;) Enjoy your downloads everyone, you deserve them.

@Bendover83 With all these great games still on the back burner, I'm sure we'll be suprised with the results of the 300th VC download. So far their streak with milestone VC content has been up to par and I appreciate that from NOA. However that does not excuse them for 6 weeks of nothing but mediocure games and content. I havn't downloaded anything since Super Punch-Out was released and that was 6 weeks ago as many of us know. I mean the only reason any of us are fustrated with the constant stream of downloads that have been occuring is that our favoirte games havn't been released yet or they weren't released on a key date and thats understadable. But NOA is playing this from a buisness standpoint. They know we want Majoras Mask, Earthbound and SSB but they're delaying us the satisfaction of having it on our Wii because they are spreading it out or at least trying to. I suppose the reason why nothing decent came in the month of April was because of the launch of the DSi but still how hard is it to emulate a game onto a system? Once the 300th VC download arrives I'm sure gamers such as us will quite down for a moment and enjoy the excellent game Nintendo has provided with us, considering they keep with the pattern that is. There will always be someone who was disappointed their game wasn't released but thats life and we must accept the fact that Nintendo has their own agenda weather it be absurd or not.

I really hope what I have said made sense, I am writing this from my DSi. All I have to say is just accept the fact that Nintendo is screwing with us and get excited for the 300th VC download.

The only reason why I'm fustrated with Nintendo with these Monday Downloads is exactly what J.K. said about having SMK, Majora and Smash floating around in either ESRB rating holdings or they have been released in different countries. I swear, North America has been getting shafted lately with these less then mediocure downloads in my opinion. I really hope NOA really pull through for us and give us a good VC download for the 300th next week. I really don't understand why Majora is taking so long to get to America, I mean it only took Super Punch Out a week after EU's release to come to Americas VC. And yes I took into account the fact that an N64 game may take longer but I think Nintendo has the capabilities to bring it to us right away. They must be bringing Majora to us for the 300th cause I really can't think of a reason why they wouldn't bring it to us. But with Nintendo of America, you never know.

Syrek commented on Nintendo Download: Soccer, Pirates and Galaxie...:

What a surprise, another monday and no good Virtual Console games to download. One more week until we finally get some good VC games to download. I really thought something popular or at least nostolgic or perhaps something great would be avaliable for download this week but I guess Nintendo is reserving something special for its 300th download next week, at least I hope. You never know with Nintendo. I just hope I won't be disappointed by this 300th download, I mean we as gamers deserve something special for all the crap games that have come out in the past month or so, at least for me.
I mean not all the games that have been released later are crap but they certaintly aren't titles worth my Wii points. At the moment I could care less about Dsiware mainly because it still hasn't proved itself yet but then again its only been out for over a month.
Anyways my concluding thoughts amongst this rambling is why did I wake up for this? Nintendo had better make up for the lack in quality VC downloads with this 300th download. So what are your predictions for next weeks VC download?

Syrek commented on Nintendo Download: Clocks, Calculators, Pengui...:

Every monday I wake up, grab my DSi on my desk, go to the web browser and go to this website to see if Nintendo has finally released Majoras Mask or even SSB and anything else thats good enough to download. I have a bunch of points both on my Wii and DSi and for the past few weeks there's been nothing of interest to make me spend my points. I wouldn't call this download shovelware, rather disappointing to say the least. I mean we expect SSB to arrive on the monday of its 10th anniversary. That didn't happen. We expected Majoras Mask to be released the following week of Europes download. That also didn't come to pass. We either have high expectations of Nintendo or Nintendo is toying with us, at least until they release the 300th VC download. Either way, being disappointed by waking up early on a monday morning when I can get some more sleep only to find that the download is lacking on both systems really is a downer. Heck if it was the Mario themed clock and calculator I probably would have gotten those two but Animal Crossing really isn't a forte of mine.
