Vhyper1985 commented on Retailer Lists Super Smash Bros. Wii U for 21s...:

Makes sense to be in November, just look at the official Nintendo store page... the Amiibo's were originally being shown as being released in November when you clicked on the "more details" tab on a character, which was then changed a few days later to just say "winter"

Vhyper1985 commented on Impending Japanese Launch Of Super Smash Bros....:

And with the roster completed, the complaining starts...

I don't know how anyone can be unhappy with this lineup to be honest, pretty much 60+ characters if you count alternates like female Robin, Alph etc, regardless of who got put in someone was going to be unhappy, we may get DLC yet to get some more characters that people want. I would like to see some of the old characters return for DLC but I'm keeping my expectations in check for now & I'm happy with what we are getting!

I'd also be interested to know if Amiibo wise would Nintendo be doing separate figures for alternate characters like Bowser Jr/Koopalings??

Fantastic roster so far along with assists like Pong & Galaga this game is like a who's who of retro gaming! The stranger thing is that Nintendo mentioned they'd be doing Amiibo's of all these characters soo..... Duck Hunt figurine hell yes!

It is a bit gutting that characters like the Ice Climbers, Wolf & Snake are out but again there's still hope for DLC further down the line, the only other real disappointment is that the ESRB leak turned out to be true, would have preferred if that hadn't happened in a way then most of these would have been a pleasant surprise..

I'm seriously looking forward to this game now, it's even overshadowed my hype for Hyrule Warriors & Bayonetta at this point.

@GamerZack7 Mega Man V is the best one in terms of Gameboy games, the previous 4 entries use recycled bosses from the NES games whereas V is entirely new! It also has more story, a new type of Mega Buster main weapon, a new helper in the form of Tango the cat & the final boss is quite a surprise too...

Vhyper1985 commented on Capcom's Mega Man 7 Is Dashing To The Wii U eShop:

@WillMelnyk This is why you'd ideally need a collection disc, having ALL Mega Man games on one console would be nice but games like Mega Man Battle & Chase, Power Battle, Power Fighters, Wily Wars, X7, X8, Network Transmission, X Command Mission, Legends, Legends 2, Tron Bonne & Powered Up are all on different consoles which would mean a heck of a lot of work to port them all just for e-shop...... & that's not even including Japan only releases like Super Adventure, Rock Board, or Mega Man & Bass Challenger from the future etc

Vhyper1985 commented on Capcom's Mega Man 7 Is Dashing To The Wii U eShop:

You guys at NintendoLife do know that Capcom confirmed that Mega Man 7, X3, Battle Network 2&3 (Blue & White edition) Battle Chip Challenge & Mega Man Zero 1&2 were confirmed for the U.S. & European e-shops waaay back at E3, we're also getting the remainder of the Gameboy Mega Man titles sometime in August apparently : http://www.capcom-unity.com/brelston/blog/2014/06/09/virtual-console-update-gba-titles-breath-of-fire-and-more

Funnily enough Mega Man & Bass is the only game they haven't confirmed as of yet, although I'd be tempted to ask for the Super Famicom version since that one didn't have screen crunch like the GBA port did! I'm looking forward to getting 7 on the e-shop though, the anniversary collection port of that game is terrible & cut out the ending sequence....

Vhyper1985 commented on Video: Nintendo Minute Heads to Capcom For Rel...:

@Volmun Actually Inafune (the co-creator of Mega Man & the guy who started the Legends 3 project) left Capcom before any Mega Man games got cancelled... He announced he was leaving in October 2010 & left in November 2010 ... Mega Man Universe which had an odd art style that fans weren't too sure on was announced as cancelled March 31st 2011, then the Legends 3 project was cancelled on July 18th 2011, it was also later revealed that Capcom were working with Retro Studios to make a new Mega Man FPS spinoff called Maverick Hunter, fans didn't know about this project until long after It had been cancelled (apparently canned in late 2010), reasons for it's cancellation was that many fans had joked about how awful an FPS Mega Man game would be & that it wouldn't fit the series & finally there was Rockman Online, which was originally never going to be released outside of Japan & Korea & cancelled in November 2012..... Japan still got that crappy Rockman XOver mobile game in 2012 & we got an officially licensed fan game to download for free in the form of Street Fighter X Mega Man in December 2012 & then of course Mega Man was revealed for Smash at E3 2013.... So 4 cancelled games which aside from Legends 3 fans weren't that bothered about until they were cancelled there hasn't been that much of a gap between games featuring Mega Man as people would have you believe, sure I'm annoyed that the games got cancelled but it doesn't mean they won't do another EVER.. As others in this thread have mentioned I'd prefer either Capcom work with Nintendo kinda like the whole Bayonetta deal or purchase the Mega Man IP since it does fit with Nintendo's portfolio very well... My only concern with Nintendo having this franchise would be that it could equally not get many games with Ninty at the helm ... see F-Zero, Mother, Mach Rider & Mysterious Murasame Castle ...

Vhyper1985 commented on Video: Nintendo Minute Heads to Capcom For Rel...:

As much as Capcom has been messing everything up these past few years I don't think it's faith in the Mega Man series that's the problem, we still get plenty of merchandise, VC releases & cameos (when was the last time we saw Captain Commando or anything from Onimusha?) I think the problem Capcom has is that 1) Most of the teams that made the Mega Man games have left & 2) Them not being sure on which direction to take the series, problem they have now is that if they were to announce a new game some part of the fanbase would still be annoyed, some people want another 8-bit game, some say the classic series should be reinvented with better graphics, some want Mega Man X9, some want a new Battle Network/Starforce/Zero/ZX title, some want a brand new spinoff series & some won't be happy until Legends 3 happens.... so it is kinda tough but the series isn't as dead as the internet would have you believe, the series has had it's breaks before & this is just another one.... Personally I'd love for them to team up with Nintendo to deliver another classic entry in 2.5D using the Smash Bros model... but who knows, we just have to wait & see & at least the re-releases keep us occupied until something happens!

Vhyper1985 commented on Video: Nintendo Minute Heads to Capcom For Rel...:

I'm probably wrong but there have been a few videos now from Nintendo featuring Mega Man to make me think there's something going on behind the scenes between them two that we don't know about, releasing more Mega Man titles on virtual console now is a wise move before Smash hits later this year... Hopefully afterwards the series can gain more fans if only because of people's curiosity about where Mega Man came from & what his games are about.... Heck might even lead to a new game??? I live in hope, heck it worked for Kid Icarus & Fire Emblem....

Capcom confirmed Battle Network 1-3, Zero 1+2 as well as MM7 & MMX3 are definitely coming to e-shop http://www.capcom-unity.com/brelston/blog/2014/06/09/virtual-console-update-gba-titles-breath-of-fire-and-more they've not mentioned Mega Man & Bass (essentially Mega Man 8.5) nor Zero 3 or 4 or the rest of the Battle Network series yet.... Wouldn't be surprised if they ported the ZX & Starforce games once the DS stuff takes off as those games didn't really set the world alight with regards sales so Capcom might see this as a 2nd chance for those 2 series'

Vhyper1985 commented on Poll: Which is Your Favourite Super Smash Bros...:

Bet no-one can guess who I picked..... I may be crazy but if these Amiibo's are usable in other games i'll be ordering me a Mega Man one the moment it's released! I'm also interested to see how Robin & Pac Man will play too.. Also I'd still like to see Shulk in there, loved the Xeno series since way back to Xenogears on the PS1 & would love to see someone from that series represented in Smash.

Vhyper1985 commented on Sega Still Considering Its Options For The Wii...:

Can only really echo (or is that ecco ;) ) what others have already said, I think Sega's missing a big opportunity not bringing their games out on the VC.. Having a selection from Sega's full back catalogue would be amazing, moreso if they included the Sega CD (Sonic CD & Snatcher anyone?) as well as Saturn & Dreamcast especially since games on those systems have been going up in value to ridiculous levels for some titles recently... It would also make the wait for N64 & the possibility of Gamecube titles more bearable too.... Also to go off on a tangent what happened to the Neo Geo & PC Engine/Turbografx stuff? ... I know Japan has the PC Engine on VC already...

Nice Pop'n Twinbee! Konami seem to be on a roll recently with these VC releases just hope we get Castlevania 3 soon & I'm still hoping for a port of Sparkster in the not too distant future!

Vhyper1985 commented on Talking Point: Keeping It Simple Helped Ninten...:

I still think the main reason Nintendo succeeded this E3 was because of 2 things: 1- New games, the games that were announced like Captain Toad, Splatoon, Kirby & even the remastered Bayonetta inclusion hadn't been leaked beforehand on websites & so were genuinely a surprise & 2- Gameplay! So many trailers at E3 were pre-rendered CG, there were exceptions of course but having things like the Treehouse Live actually playing these games made all the difference! With regards the new IPs I think they all show huge potential, the project Robot & Guard demos were really early in development so should hopefully get even better over time, as for Splatoon, again it was early gameplay & I remember reading somewhere that there will be a single player campaign so at least it does have a few demographics in mind rather than just being a multiplayer game with a limited audience, although even if Splatoon doesn't have a deep story we still have Bayonetta, Xenoblade, Zelda etc to make up for that... I personally am looking forward to Splatoon, I think it has potential to be the next big IP for Nintendo (if they add a decent story to it even better) but with the shooter genre being as popular as it is right now I think this is something Ninty needed to make, either way plenty of good games coming & lets be honest the real winners are us gamers because of it!

Vhyper1985 commented on Don't Worry, Nintendo Hasn't Forgotten About T...:

Sounds like Reggie kinda sidestepped the question to be honest, yes expectations were high with the gamecube adapter announced but N64 support was "coming soon" at launch let alone years after.. that & Nintendo keep hinting at Gamecube support but we've still not had any concrete info on it.

Personally I'd like to see the Sega, NeoGeo & Turbografx stuff return as well, heck Japan have PC Engine support in place already. Having these setup on the WiiU over here would mean we could get more VC titles instead of the small trickle we are getting right now...

Vhyper1985 commented on Video: Prepare To Pour One Out For Sega's Fall...:

Although he wasn't technically a SEGA mascot he appeared on other systems & that was Sparkster from Rocket Knight, Konami tried recently to resurrect the franchise on PS3 & X360 as a digital title but I'd love to see the original Mega Drive & SNES titles on the VC at some point.

Vhyper1985 commented on Mario Kart Month: Expanding the Universe of Ma...:

Didn't Sumo (the guys behind Sonic All Stars Racing) tease something to do with Sonic & Mario a while back? Maybe DLC for MK9? But either way I think the roster could expand to other Nintendo franchises, heck guest characters like Sonic or Mega Man could work very well since both have had their own kart games in the past (Sonic All Stars & Mega Man Battle & Chase respectively) characters such as Samus & Link would be difficult to pull off without looking really odd....

I always worry about spending stars since we never know what's going to be added to the store later which could be better, I missed out on the Luigi's Mansion statue & now they are going for silly money on Ebay & the like! Hopefully i'll have some time to build up stars again between now & the next decent item....

Who needs friends? I sure don't to enjoy GBA VC titles & I'm glad we're finally getting them in the 1st place along with at least more than 1 title most weeks too... although I'd like to think they would continue this trend going forward I'm somehow doubting it ... but still it's a start! Looking forward to playing through Metroid Fusion again & roll on Mega Man & Bass Mega Man Zero series & titles like Zelda Minish Cap & Metroid Zero Mission

Vhyper1985 commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

@blodermoder

Have YOU read your comment? Read it again & you'll see how one might come to the conclusion that you were insinuating that objectification & stereotyping don't happen in real life....

That being said from your latest comment (cheers for replying btw) given that both games are actually out that include the things you mentioned (whale killing & sexual objectification) not all players are objectifying women when they play SKB, but IF they were would it not be better they are doing so with a character that doesn't exist in a video game & not a real person? The game itself isn't serious + most people who play it find it funny (in my experience) due to the sheer ludicrous nature of it & aren't suddenly going to go out into the real world & start objectifying women. In the same way people who kill a virtual whale or even another person in a game won't then go out & think "well I did this in a game so it must be ok" you'd have to be mental to think that way & have bigger problems in your life if you do!

Vhyper1985 commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

@Metafalica Thanks, the only reason I mention other titles is that SKB isn't as bad as some other titles out there & threads like these are bound to pop up with other games, I'm sick of seeing them too i'll be honest but hey it's gonna happen

@blodermoder Sooo Sexual Objectification doesn't happen in real life eh... Must be nice to not have strip clubs, prostitution etc in your fantasy world... It DOES happen in the real world. Racial Stereotyping happens in the real world too, I help run a car racing team & have employed female drivers before & you'd be amazed at the amount of flak they can get from other male drivers on other teams simply because they are women.... Sorry to say but this crap DOES happen. As I mentioned in my previous comment though my comparison with the PETA debacle is similar in that you're not focusing on the real problem, all the people that are offended by this game should remember that this is a game, it's not real, it's a video game by a small developer who got lucky at the end of the day & had a laugh because of it... If you really wanted to help the world become a better place with less objectification & racial stereotyping for women go out into the real world instead of complaining about a video game, which again if you don't like the look of don't play it... simple! Oh & while I remember does this mean I can complain once the sequel comes out since Senran Kagura 2 actually has 2 male playable characters.... jus sayin... equal oppourtunities & all.. speaking of which you'd also be surprised how many females I know who have actually played & enjoyed SKB fan service & all simply because they can see it as I do, a silly game that knows it's silly but is also a lot of fun.

FYI Whale killings did happen in games go play Assassin's Creed 4 ;)

Vhyper1985 commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

At the end of the day I say the promotion of this game is very similar to the "Carry On" films from back in the day, it's silly fun & the makers & promoters know this, sure the game isn't to everyone's tastes, but if you're worried about your kids playing ("someone think of the children") the box has a rating on it & it's both YOUR responsibility & the shop assistants to prevent younger gamers getting their hands on games with material that isn't suitable in it!

For those offended by this game, look at it this way.. it could be MUCH worse, the characters are cartoony, there isn't any nudity (some people out there still think there is) & in the end it's not even real, it's a game, it makes as much sense as PETA complaining about killing virtual whales in Assassins Creed 4... As to whether this game should have been published? I think It should, it has & it's not done badly to be honest + if smaller Japanese devs see that even niche titles do well over here it may encourage more studios to release their games in the west!

In the end if you're offended by it, follow the advice given to every other form of media, if you don't like something don't listen, view or play it!

(Can't wait to see people's reaction to Akiba's Trip which was just announced for a western release ;) )

Vhyper1985 commented on Video: The Dubious Charm Of Senran Kagura Burs...:

I think those of you taking this game seriously are missing the point, I personally find it hilarious that a company can get a game like this on a Nintendo system & in stores with the box art it has! The publishers know that it's silly & I can applaud them for having the balls to a) give it a physical release, b) use the box art that it does & c) have a special edition that comes with a T-Shirt that when translated says "Breasts is life, Donkey is Hometown" on it ... seriously those saying that this game is "disgusting" etc get a grip it's silly fun kinda like the Carry On films were back in the day, the gameplay is supposedly relatively good & it's not all creepy fan fiction like some would be led to believe. Good on them for having the guts to bring it over & maybe it might just send a message to Japanese devs that no matter how obscure your game is it may just have an audience outside Japan & be worth releasing in other territories. It's not going to be for everyone granted but hey..

Backed this on Kickstarter what seems like ages ago! Been following it ever since, very strange watching their live streams from starting out doing pixel art & animations of Plague Knight in someone's apartment while playing through all the classic Mega Man titles to them getting their own studio has been great to watch.... & I still don't know what they are going to do with our faces! (some backers could send a pic off to them to have our faces in the game somewhere!) needless to say I'm extremely looking forward to getting my hands on the finished product on the WiiU!! :D

I'm guessing definite info on Mario Kart, Shovel Knight & Wooden Sensay since those are supposed to be released in May & March respectively... I'm hoping for info on Bayonetta 2 since that was playable at a few shows last year.... Beyond that PLEASE announce you're doing something with the VC or at least give us a date of when we can expect GBA, N64, DS etc on WiiU!

I'm waiting for "Hi, this is Reggie from Nintendo. We've just purchased the Mega Man franchise from crapcom"

Don't get my hopes up... :( I'd love for Ninty to make a Mega Man game especially if it was in the style of the Smash model...

Ugh.... Funny how other Indie developers have no trouble getting their games released in Europe & in other regions in a timely manner! I originally wanted to get Mutant Mudds Deluxe on my WiiU but since it's taken so damn long I eventually picked it up off of the U.S. PSN store on PS3 (again though it took a year for it to appear on the U.S. version of PSN too) Nicalis seem to be stuck in the 90's itself where game releases for Europe took over 2 years... I want to play this on WiiU I really do but if it looks like we're not going to get it then again I may be forced to pick it up off of a U.S. PSN store... once again it all comes down to region locking .. fun!

After this & the fact that the West won't be getting the physical version nor the limited edition of the new Strider game on other platforms either doesn't give me much confidence in them bringing EX Troopers over anytime soon.. It's more annoying with this title since Capcom want the sales numbers to warrant a release but aren't willing to give it a chance here in the west to make money in the 1st place....

Vhyper1985 commented on Matters of Import: E.X. Troopers Brings The He...:

Capcom sooo need to bring this to the West! If I remember correctly the only reason they didn't was because of the sales numbers in Japan.
After reading the article on here the other day & watching the vid I imported the PS3 version, certainly no regrets! All i'll say is believe the hype this thing is great fun! Think Megaman Legends (I know I shouldn't bring that up but it's the closest thing) mixed with Lost Planet, there was even a pretty cool Limited edition version for the collectors out there:

@Kumite It's pretty import friendly, the menus are pretty self explanatory & the missions + controls are simple & easy to understand, the levelling up system isn't complex either (exp can only be spent on weapon & special attack upgrades) the only thing you'll be missing out on is the story but even then you can figure out the general gist of it all.
