Tides_of_Chaos commented on Buy Ufouria If You Want More Quirky Virtual Co...:

@ Vio Well, just because Europeans deal with a similar situation on a frequent basis, that doesn't mean we should put up with this. I know several Europeans who don't like the way they've been treated, so why should Americans be ok with this? Besides, this isn't the very first NA VC game to do this. I believe the entire C64 catalog was also lazily ported over. (I've downloaded zero of these so far in large part because of this fact)



Tides_of_Chaos commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (N64):

A perfect 10, eh? Well, maybe it's about time to drag out the old N64 cart of this game and finally beat it. Thanks to the time limit, and the scary looking moon, I didn't like this game as a kid and couldn't even beat the first dungeon. Maybe now that I'm older, I'll have a better time with it.



Tides_of_Chaos commented on Ten Arcade Games We'd Like To See On The Virtu...:

The problem I see happening with the VC Arcade is that the only games that will come to it will be the ones already released on compilation discs in order to cut down on the costs of emulating. It also seems unlikely that a game like Popeye would make it due to it being a licensed game. (despite my complaints, I'd still like to see Marble Madness, light gun games and the Simpsons Arcade game come to the VCA)



Tides_of_Chaos commented on Wii Storage Solution Solved - Finally A Use Fo...:

"Many suggested Nintendo would come out with a hard drive solution like the Xbox 360 thinking that the Wii hardware was not up to the task of playing games directly from SD cards. Thankfully it seems that this assumption was wrong!" Not least from what I've heard.. Doesn't this update just temporarily copy over the game and let you play it that way? Because that's what Guitar Hero does for its music downloads but I could be wrong.



Tides_of_Chaos commented on Final Fantasy Finally Coming to VC:

I'm definitely interested in getting what is known on the SNES as FF II & III. FF I, however, I will get the GBA version of which comes with FF II (Japan) too. I prefer my games easy.



Tides_of_Chaos commented on SD Card Game Launching + Arcade Games Availabl...:

This is a very nice update. Now the Wii Channel can do what Guitar Hero: World Tour did already. The best part of this update has to be the arcade being added. There are simply limitless opportunities for games now. (at least until you get to around current-gen stuff)



Tides_of_Chaos commented on Rejoice! The DSi Gets a Virtual Console After...:

I'm intrigued by this, but not excited quite yet. Why? Game Boy games are common and super cheap. The only reason to be excited is for easy access (no separate GBA and DS) and not having to worry about the battery dying (as has happened in every version of Pokémon Silver I buy)



Tides_of_Chaos commented on Korogashi Puzzle Katamari Comes to DSiWare!:

If they had to make a spinoff of Katamari instead of a proper game, couldn't it have at least been something other than a puzzle game? There are too many puzzle games on Wiiware, let's not get started on doing the same to DSiWare too.



Tides_of_Chaos commented on Bomberman '94 & Detana!! Twinbee Coming To US ...:

Are any import games ever going to be translated again after only happening in Sin & Punishment? I feel it's a bit unfair that imported games are more money even when no extra effort was put into them. Still, it's hard to complain when we get great games like this. (really enjoyed Bomberman '93)



Tides_of_Chaos commented on New Furry Legends Screenshots:

This game looks like one of those that need to be seen in action, so I'll disregard any problems I have with the screens for now. Anyways, I hope this game turns out good; Wiiware needs more platformers.



Tides_of_Chaos commented on Take Five and Double It!:

Ick, two pages per game now? I'm ok with 5 doubling to 10 (but I miss the stars... ) but two pages? I can understand wanting to separate the review and actual game comments but still, I prefer having all the info I could need in one place. Especially when it comes to videos. Sometimes when I start reading a review and can't understand what the game really plays like so I scroll down and watch the video of it. Now that's gone, and it's something that I've always hated about Wiiware World.



Tides_of_Chaos commented on Rumour: EarthBound Not Coming to Virtual Console:

I normally would try to dismiss something like this but Starmen's evidence seems pretty good so far. And the songs don't just sound similar, it sounds like they actually have other songs inside of their songs! You can clearly hear the star-spangled banner (which I believe IS infringement for some weird reason....) and the monty python thing is pretty blatant too. Not sure why NOJ would object to changing the songs though. Just a few small tweaks would suffice from what I can see. (and if those songs in the link were the only big culprits) As for pop culture references, I don't think there's anything illegal about that is there?



Tides_of_Chaos commented on USA VC Update: Life Force:

Well, some people may be disappointed with this surprise, but I'm pretty excited. I think a lot of the C64 games are interesting, although admittedly overpriced. Maybe NOA can chop off 100 points or so for us? (please?)



Tides_of_Chaos commented on USA VC Update: Wolf of the Battlefield: MERCS:

MERCS? Eh, I guess that's all well and good for some people here, but I'd rather have gotten Clayfighter. (as a guy who makes claymations, I'd like to play a game based on clay even if it is kind of bad) To me, MERCS comes off as bland and if I really wanted it, I would get the Capcom Classics Collection.



Tides_of_Chaos commented on Hudson Releases Onslaught Screenshots:

I have disliked Hudson since their unofficial dropping out of the Virtual Console service but I have to admit that they are making innovative strides in the Wiiware side of life. Making an FPS for Wiiware? And with online multiplayer? That's huge, even if it does end up being kind of crappy.



Tides_of_Chaos commented on Artex Studios Developing for WiiWare:

It's nice to know that a CEO of a game company is actually listening to people's criticism and responding to it all. I personally don't have anything to add that anyone else hasn't already but it's still nice.



Tides_of_Chaos commented on Capcom To Release Mega Man 9 Soundtrack:

I liked the soundtrack but I'm definitely not dropping $30 on a soundtrack when some WiiWare games give their soundtracks for free. $10 is a more reasonable price considering the game cost that much.



Tides_of_Chaos commented on Evasive Space Website Launched Today With New ...:

Am I the only person who isn't a tad bit interested in this game? Sure, it's not a puzzle game or shovelware, but it just doesn't seem very creative. It feels uninspired as did High Voltage's other work. Maybe others can find the appeal but I can't.



Tides_of_Chaos commented on Club Nintendo Comes To North America:

@ Virus
I don't think they download every single VC game because the reviews come up way too soon for that to be true. They typically just use the original copy of the game for reviewing purposes considering little, if anything, changes in the ports.

Anyways, the site said that my My Nintendo account is now connected to Club Nintendo but I can't log in. Do I have to wait for a confirmation email or something?



Tides_of_Chaos commented on Neko Porting Two More Playstation 2 Titles To ...:

The platformer looks OK. I mean, sure, Neko has a bad track record but the video didn't look like it was horrible or anything. It might be too easy or the controls are bad but the graphics and idea seem decent.

Chariot racing on the other hand, I have no idea what to expect.



Tides_of_Chaos commented on Hands on with SnakeByte's XS Starter Pack:

It seems a bit iffy to buy a 3rd party wiimote when the controller is so important for the Wii.
Also, does it work with the official nunchuk and will it work with Wii Motion Plus when it comes out? There are chances that it might not and it would be wasted money then.



Tides_of_Chaos commented on Review: Boingz (WiiWare):

Meh, Boingz never looked good to me anyway. Also,
@ Dazza: I prefer big TVs myself. Maybe it's just me, but I don't understand the appeal of little HD TV's. I can't see myself ever actually using it.



Tides_of_Chaos commented on Hori Announces New Classic Controller For Japan:

What can be better than a Gamecube knock-off with turbo switches for almost any button? (well, an officially licensed one but otherwise) NOTHING! I seriously need to consider getting this thing. Maybe I should put it on my Christmas wishlist. So many wants, so little time. (and money)



Tides_of_Chaos commented on Virtual Console Reviews is Two Today!:

Happy birthday VC-Reviews! I completely forgot that you changed names but now that you mention it, I kind of miss the old one. Ah, but it doesn't matter, we don't come here for the name anyways!



Tides_of_Chaos commented on Review: Target Toss Pro: Bags (WiiWare):

I agree with posts 16 and 17: with the way the review was going, the score felt like a seven or even maybe an eight! Maybe you should edit it with a few more nitpickings to point out why you chose a 6?



Tides_of_Chaos commented on Incredible Technologies Interview: Target Toss...:

Did anybody else notice how WiiWare World kept screwing up the name in the review and that they would correct them with the full name with the answer? I thought it was pretty amusing, if subtle.

Anyways, I don't think this game will be nearly as bad as Pong Toss. The graphics are lightyears ahead of it, the developer is more experienced, and it sounds like they really care about delivering a good game, at least from my perspective.
