Taggsta commented on Review: Splatoon (Wii U):

I decided not to bother with this game and I cancelled the 3 Amiibo pack after I played the Demo and it didn't hold my interest. The online became repetitive pretty quickly . A short game in Single player too...not for me.

Looks cool through and the concept was different which is nice.

I sold my SFC collection around 7 years ago to get some money together to move to Australia. I've enjoyed starting to recollecting these games on the WiiU VC and having the ability to switch and change games without having to swap cartridges is great. I'm over collecting physicals after spending 2o+ years collecting games, I don't have to take care of them, find space for them or try to protect them from the sunlight. Nothing is for ever so why bother collecting them ??

Taggsta commented on Nintendo Stays in Profit With Wii U on Target,...:

I have a gut feeling that the NEW 3DS has / is going to underacheive over the next 12 months globally. I don't believe there's a big enough difference to warrent big sales. The special edition campaigns will help but in Australia they didn't sell out over Christmas and to be that's not a good sign.

Hopefully we'll see some further Special Editions or incentives to boost sales

I just like the figures so far and the box artwork. The figures that really appeal for me are Fox and Captain Falcon as I've never experienced figures for these characters before. I've used them in Mario Kart 8 and then boxed them again. I'm happy with that.
My wife got me Mario for Christmas so since then I picked up Luigi too. I'm a old Skool gamer so I then picked up Donkey Kong and have pre-order Sonic and Pacman. I'm happy , they look nice and that's enough for me.

I don't believe the NEW 3DS XL in Japan has SFC buttons...wasn't it just the std version that does?? ....let you off with that error, looks a nice colour. I'll wait for a real themed soeacial edition before I think of up grading in any way

Taggsta commented on Nintendo Download: 15th January (Europe):

Great news about Axelay, I do miss my SFC. Had all Konami SFC games and this one reall impressed with the horizonal and vertical sections. The Mode 7 chip was used in an excellent way on the Vertical levels...who could forget the Fire planet and the first time you encountered the Flame Boss. The music to this game including the atmospheric intro is sublime. Looking forward to getting this again and for the poor Pal regions you get to play the game at 60Hz.
M2 afterburner is a must too

The Super Famicom version will always be my favorite and most played but the n64 version was a good game. I preferred the cartoon style of the original over the characters of the n64 version.

The discounts definitely make me buy more games.
I load up my account with $20 a month and I spend it on filling my VC catalogue, I don't spend any more than that generally.
I used to have over 50 boxes Super Famicom game and finished most of them many times over, eventually selling them so building my SNES VC library is nice to get them back and at hand to play once in a while. It also seems better than playing Roms.
Ninty need to have better variety selections on the eshop, not every Megaman game, mix it up a bit. Rarer games is a good idea too.
Wii VC should be playable and accessible from the Gamepad and some VC games should be transferred from WiiU to 3DS or at least discounted if you own them on one machine for sure.

This has been talked about for a while as Okunari loves ThunderBlade. Glad it's on the 3D list as the only way to really play this version was on MAME.
I can see these being released week by week leading upto Christmas like the furry wave of SEGA 3D games

Agree if you are only using the screen to control the game, but you can play with controllers too. Just saying that in this day and age I personally don't find poor arcade conversions to have any appeal, I expect more.

Taggsta commented on Capcom's Mega Man 7 Is Dashing To The Wii U eShop:

Personally I've never played a MM game, the character design has never appealed..sucks when we are going to get MM for months now on the VC calendar.

I suppose I need to give one a go to see what the fuss is about

Taggsta commented on Video: Returning To Rainbow Skies with Fantasy...:

I love these SEGA 3D games and can't wait for more to come to Europe/Aus.
The only thing that's lame is that in a range of 10 games so far released there are releasing a sequel with Fantasy Zone II. There are so many games out there but they to bring out a sequel already.
Same goes with Capcom releasing 1 billion Megaman games when there so much more to offer ....please vary the games more so we can have different experiences

They need a ground breaking use for it as a controller.
And they also need to have some additional transmitter that u can put in the house so you can play the darn gamepad in other rooms.
Having a additional screen just isn't a big benefit when u are in the same room as the TV.
It's just not a tablet
