Teppo_Holmqvist commented on Japan Gets Wii Movie Rental Service:

@Chatham "I think for streaming video "DVD-quality" sounds impossible... "

Netflix already does that so long as you have enough bandwitdh available, and it won't be issue at Japan where typical connection is at least 2 MB/s. And Wii is more than enough for decoding MPEG2 / MPEG4 on the fly, although it wouldn't be able to decode HD-content.



Teppo_Holmqvist commented on Klonoa 3? Depends On Wiimake's Sales:

"That's a no, then. Apparantly in the first week, it only got 1000 sales across America"

Yup. But then again, the game wasn't even officially sold during the tracked period. All those 1000 copies are from stores that broke street dates.



Teppo_Holmqvist commented on Review: Punch-Out!! (Wii):

"Why bother developing a motion-enabled update of a NES game if you need to use NES-style controls for the final battles? That's just bad design if ever there was any."

Shrugh. I have so far went King Hippo TD with motion controls. Seems working fine for me. It's not really my problem that most reviewers are uncoordinated slouches.



Teppo_Holmqvist commented on Review: Punch-Out!! (Wii):

"Punch Out!! also allows you to use the Wii Fit Balance board, but it ends up being more of a novelty than a useful control method. You can choose to make use of it for the ducking and dodging play control aspects of the game, but it ultimately ends up being too sluggish and unresponsive."

Actually, it works just fine if you actually do duck and dodge instead of half-hearted efforts.



Teppo_Holmqvist commented on Nintendo Download: 12 May 2009 (Japan):

@Jhuhn "The other VC game from Technos is titled "Downtown Special: Its Kunio's Period Piece, Assemble Everyone!""

Yeah. It's sequel to River City Ransom, and it is set to medieval japan. Plays pretty much same way as RCR, although it does also have some unfortunate slowdown. It was never released in the west.



Teppo_Holmqvist commented on New Punch-Out!! Details:

When interviewed by german GamePro, the game's director Kensue "Kenji" Tanabe said that there would be lots of unlockables ranging from the new suits to new challenges and boxers. He also claimed that they were first 1st party game to have problems with fitting all content into DVD (probably single-layered, but still).
