@MAB
Barry & Jill are secret lovers. When jill isn't off fighting zombies & the umbrella corporation, she's raising a family inside his beard.

BTW, whatever happened to Rebecca? Even Steve's whereabouts are a little whack. Apparently, in the umbrella files, it says that wesker has steve's body with the virus contained. Yeesh, Chris(Zero personality), Jill(Lifeless) and Leon(pretty boy on a mission) need to a break and let some other character from the series shine.

@MAB

I hate how these RE noobs that have no history with the traditional franchise jump into RE4, praising the hell out of it, and then sh** all over the older games.. RE4 is a great game but I hate the fact that it's been slapped with the name 'RE4'. RE5 was an inferior cut and paste larger scaled' Blackhawk down fest with a stupid sidekick that constantly stole your shots, and RE6? WTF is that?.....RE for casuals & Jar-head gamers. I can't believe with the simple click of a button that it tells you where to go....that goes against everything that RE used to be.lol

Capcom is going to make RE7 like revelations. they just can't go full on survivor horror. They'lll throw in a bit(Tame survival horror to be exact) and pollute half of the game with mindless shoot out filler to please add gamers across the globey' And it better star barry burton! :P

@Ryno
Yeah, same here. I just might get a copy of the Evil Within on the Ps3, but i'm worried by the total lack of gameplay footage. Destructoid and IGN's recent hands on with the game weren't exactly glowing. The latest trailer felt like yet 'another' video game trying to be sold as a movie with cutscene after cutscene. It's like....How does the game 'play' ya know? :P

But yup, this is one game i'd like to see on Wii U, i also would of gotten the new Killer Instinct as well, but it's not worth buying a One just for one game. There's honestly nothing else on either console that has been released that has caught my eye. 90% of them are more 'dudes walking around and shooting sh**"

@TheAdza
Plus the older traditional RE games almost felt like you were participating in a movie, thanks to the static prerendered cinematic back drops. Once RE4 plunked the camera over your characters shoulder in 3rd person the 'art' and cinematic flare was completely gone. The advantage? The gun play was light years better giving you realistic aiming(Wii version especially) rather than jerking your weapon around in 4 directions. :P

WaveBoy commented on Forgotten Classics: Resident Evil Code: Veronica:

I'd say Code Veronica was even weaker than Zero. Even back then, the shift to non-prerendered polygonal environments sucked the atmosphere almost completely dry. It had it's advantages like camera panning(ect) but it just didn't hold a candle to the super detailed prerendered back drops of RE1-3.

Not only that, but the characters movements were rather wooden, zombie dismemberment was gone, the gore was tame this time out, there was too much of an emphasis on action with Almost matrix-like fight choreography eating up the cut scenes, STEVE(need i say more?), Alfred?(WTF?), the plot was bordering into hokey scfi territory vs the grounded almost George A romero-esque stuff found in the previous 3 and by this point after playing the first 3 on the PS1,

RE was finally getting stale. Scratch that, it was even starting to during RE3:Nemesis. :PCode Veronica and Zero will always be the two low points in the traditional RE series imo. With the original RE taking the crown. Remake was good and all,

but none of the other RE games had the same impact on me that the original had. it was the first of it's kind, it was creepy as hell and it was TRUE survival horror, unlike the sequels that were riddled with too much ammunition. in the original, you made every bullet count, they were the equivalent to diamonds.

WaveBoy commented on Veronica Mars Star Kristen Bell Reveals Her Fo...:

When i look back at college, for me it was all about the DS Lite, game cube , the major hype train surrounding the revolutionary and exciting Wii, IGN's Glory days with Matt Cassamasina & Mark Bozon and the birth of the Angry Nintendo nerd. :P Great times, yet I seriously wish i could blast back to my early 20's though and do a lot of things differently. Not in regards to the stuff i mentioned above, but other choices i made and usually letting my anxiety get in the way of several other things i wanted to do.

Anyhoo, my gaming has slowed down during the past 2-3 years(i haven't played a 3DS game since october, ahem Luigi's Mansion 2...I was all over the 3DS during it's first year or so hwoever, OR even the Wii U yet outside of Wind Waker HD at my local Best Buy) not that i want it to at all, but i just find myself getting too distracted, but it's mainly because i've been putting up with this never ending(7+ years running) auto immune disorder that's taking control of what i need to do. I find it hard to focus a lot of the time.

Time to make a change, which means getting back into the game, of the pixel variety and creating more of a balance in me life' and not letting this issue of mine take center stage. yargh maytee!

WaveBoy commented on Feature: The Castlevania That Konami Doesn't W...:

@LDXD
This. Plus throw in Castlevania: The Adventure. Both are 10x more enjoyable and appealing comapred to the LOS series. which is quite possibly one of the most boring hack 'n slashes i've ever experienced. It's so sad to see that people would rather pay for more god of war clones that are offer luke warm difficulty Vs the classic side scrollers that offer a deadly meaty challenge.

most video games these days have gone soft in terms of difficulty, and many young gamers don't have the patience or desire to master or learn from their mistakes via trial and error. these games aren't hardcore, try firing up III: Dracula's curse. not only is it an amazing sequel, it will suck the pixel blood right out of ya! :P

Anyways, the classic castlevania series is dead....Seeing a trend? Too many gamers want big cinematic flashy 3D ADD thrill ride spectacles that they can finish effortlessly.

WaveBoy commented on Feature: How A Team Of Dedicated Fans Is Fixin...:

I remember being so butt hurt the moment i fired up SSBrawl...
The slower controls, floatier physics, random tripping and gimped/broken air dashing crippled my first impressions. It eventually grew on me only because i grew used to it, but the moment i dived back in Melee i was reminded just how much better it actually plays.

Nice to hear that Sakurai has struck a balance between the two for SSB U, although, i wish he'd just resort back to Melees fast and furious, more precise combat. Heck, at least add in a Turbo mode!

WaveBoy commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Saturn:

@KnightRider666
Had the Dreamcast survived an entire generation, i think a lot of people would be singing a different tune. Probably not me though, I prefer 2D games over 3D by an enormous land slide. Looking back, i wish i would of put more focus on the SNES during the 16-bit generation istead of 50/50ing it. The nostalgia i have is strong for the mega drive, but eh...I'm just not a huge fan of it anymore...especially when you side it with the SNES. that little sleek black console just couldn't capture the brilliance, charm, magic and 'true' next gen vibe of Nintendo's new 16-bit machine. Sonic the Hedgehog was a pile of rotten DK bananas Vs Super Mario World...Deep down, my inner sega fanboy knew it. My friend got the SNES on launch and it was mindblowing. going back to my sega genesis felt like a pile of soggy sega left overs.

WaveBoy commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Saturn:

Bought the saturn on launch, played maybe about 20 games or so, and sold it as soon as the PS1 came out. :P Panzer Dragoon, Virtua Fighter and Myst I'll admit were pretty damn awesome for the time. I never gave the console a fair shake, part of me wishes i would of held on to it. But titles like Clockwork Knight, and Street Fighter: The Movie left a Yucky taste in my mega mouth, the dino dudes damage had already been done!

Titles like Mega Man 8, Resident Evil, Rayman(ect ect) were multiconsole so i never felt like i really missed out on anything 3rd party wise, seeing as how the PS1 was much more popular and all.

Wait until E3. ;) If you think this is all that nintendo has to offer this year than you are sorely mistaken dude. expect some big gnarly OMFG announcements that will blow your mother brain & blaster master beyond, with new nintendo games hitting the 2nd half of the year. they really need to up the ante this E3. 2010 was the last great nintendo E3 showing imo!

@GreatPlayer
I disagree about the gamepad, i think it's an amazing device, screams next gen and pushes gaming forward in a different + unique direction. Also, NES remix 2 looks awesome. If you disagree, than i'll never make you a king hippo pixel slushie ever again. Zoink! :P

As for Dr.Luigi, were we honestly supposed to get excited over this? Also, Luigi's Mansion 2 was nowhere near as good as the scores made it out to be, i'd personally nail it with a 7. Extremely tedious and lacking in difficulty, The GCN original hasn't aged too well in a few areas but I'd still say it's the better game! especially for the time....Those vaccum sucking cloth physics were mind blowing. :O

Pretty much this. Lame NIntendo tactic on their part. Oh yippie, a 'Zelda' theme....not tempting in the slightest. Even a mega man theme wouldn't spark my interest. None of this BELONGS in sonic's world, it's just a cheap cash crab tactic to lour in the blind Nintendo fan boys. :P Heck, Sumarai Warriors Wii U even had a Zelda theme...

@brooks83
Yeah, the GBA games do in fact look darker, not only that but you're either dealing with a smaller 1:1 picture or a blown up fugly image to fit the screen. If you own a regular 3DS, you can unlock the 6th brightness by using your charger/adapter which should help make these GBA games look a litte brighter which also enhances color vibrancy. Still.....I'd much rather play GB carts on a DS Lite....it's the only way to fly imo. Won't be bothering with the 3DS's GBA VC.

WaveBoy commented on Super Mario Bros. 3 Is Warping To North Americ...:

@MAB
And yet nintendo fans continue to go cuckoo for mario puffs the moment it gets released again and again, as if they've never experienced it before. Oh look! NOW i can play it on the Wii U's VC, it's going to give new life on this classic and freshen up the entire experience! not. ;)

This game in VC form has already been available on the Wii Shop for like 5 years, there's nothing to get excited about, unless you're a blind raging fan boy that kneels before nintendo and thinks everything they do is GOLD, including these regurgitated offerings. lol Amazing classic no doubt, but i've already expereinced it again and AGAIN. have it on cart and on the Wii's VC, no need to quadro dip.

When are they going to release new VC games?.....The Wii U's VC is a bomb, with Earthbound being the only new release. What a joke.
The Wii generation was so much more exciting. booo

Also, not too crazy over how GBA games look on the 3DS's screens...You either get a tiny 1:1 screen or a blown up ugly one, that and GBA games look dimmer and less colorful VS playing them on a DS lite, which imo is the only way to fly. ;)

WaveBoy commented on Review: Adventure Island II (3DS eShop / NES):

@Tasuki
Same here. Never finished it though! not that it was hard or anything, quite the opposite actually. :P When i was a kid i spent more time drawing & coloring the Box Art of the first two games than actually playing them. The first Adventure Island was far too difficult for any child to complete, let alone an adult haha.

Yet I managed to finish it a few years or so ago on the Wii's VC. another sweet NES-victory! B-) No easy task, and quite possibly the toughest NES platformer i've ever played. Even besting Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse and Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of doom.

Don't forget Bill Rizer from Contra and Arthur from Ghosts 'n Goblins. Two franchises that gave birth on the NES outside of their two original outings in the arcade, that spawned sequels both on the Nes & snes. They deserve to be up there just as much as Mr.Belmont. ;)

@SammySpaceTime
Pac-man is overrated? were you even alive when it was introduced into the arcades?:P No other Namco character deserves a shot more than he does. As much as I love Klonoa(Wii) there's no way Sakurai would opt for him over Pac-man who is one of the most beloved and popular videogame characters of all time.

Klonoa's been in what, like 3 games? His last outing(the amazing Wii remake) did xtremely poor in sales to boot...

Pacman or Dig Dug(Classic look) are the only two that have a chance of making it in.

@Sean_Aaron
for first and 3rd persons 'whatevers' it's wii remote/pointer controls or nothing for me. Although, ZombiU has been an exception to the rule since it's a huge innovative showcase based on what the Gamepad can actually do. Otherwise, i want a metroid prime 3-like expereince, none of this silly twin stick shinanigans.

Not only is the first person genre itself becoming extremely dull, but it's also typically backed up by a dull control scheme. Metroid Prime 3, Golden Eye 007(Wii) and Red Steel 2 are the cream of the FPS controlling crop. ;)

You know what McDonalds gives me? BAD reflux/GERD. As much as I love McDonalds on a cheat day every now and then, eating it these days makes me feel like i'm about 'this close' to taking a trip to the hospital. Must be the grease and whatever the hell else they put in their meat.

@itsgood2slide
Boy it must be tough meating(hehe) the daily requirements when you're axing out Chicken, Eggs, Salmon Tuna & turkey... When going vegan, Beans(ahem, inflammatory) seem to be the main protein source, as well as Seeds and nuts which are chalk full of Lectins, phytic acid and omega 6's....bummer.

Those should be eaten in moderation. But at least you're not intaking all of those antibiotics and hormones that plague your typical store bought meet...To get around that, you just got to cruise down to your local farmers market. ;)

Also, i hope you're not making soy a daily part of your diet. possibly one of the worst things you can do...That's a bone headed move a lot of vegans seem to make. And a lot of them look malnourished, but that's probably because so many of them are doing it wrong. lol
I prefer a paleo-like diet. By no means am i strict like a lot of those paleo nut jobs....Yeah, i eat 0% sugar free greek yogurt and brown rice(once in a while) where as they don't. i believe in treating yourself in moderation, even if it means heavy processed foods such as mcdonalds, dairy queen ect ect. Besides, these fad diets aren't going to make you invincible, nor will they save you from a jet falling on your head because as we all know that happens on a daily basis. wink* Sometimes, sh** just happens. We get sick, and we just have to trudge through it. All we can do is minimize our exposure to toxins that we consume(ect) on a daily basis, but we can't avoid all of it.

Anyways, be happy and eat Meat, ahem, i mean that non-tasty fake vegan lentil burger you got chilling in your funky fridge. :P jk!

@SCAR392
Mcdonalds as a nostalgiac treat is absolutely amazing imo(Cheeseburgers for the McBurgler win baby B-) ) just eat it in moderation and don't make it a routine diet like a lot of those foolish Mcfatties that dine there morning, noon and night.

what made mcdonalds so magical back in the 80's and early 90's were the actual commercials which were absolutely magical...Thy were presented in Diney-like fashion, to the point of convincing you that mcdonalds was the most magical 'food' place on earth....The fact that they often had Ronald, Grimmis and the Hamburgler show up in the restaurant every now and then made it all the better. There was also something about the indoor and outer interior that gave it that extra spash of awesomeness.

Plus, when you're a kid you can typically eat junk food like there's no tomorrow, but when you get older your body basically says F-U, well....At least when you hit 40! ;) Heck, we're all more aware too of how bad Mcdonalds food actually is these days, so there's of course 'that' that has put a lot of people off, in combination of the nasty dent 'Super Size Me' has made. :P

He's just a little insecure mad-toad that feels Hot when he plunks a black shiny object in his hands. He's worried too much about the 'image' rather than the fun, like a lot of teener wieners these days.

I've never been worried about looking cool playing a video game, anybody who does has got some hilarious insecurity issues. Trying to impress somebody with a videogame of all things if absolutely ridiculous. It's about the experience, having fun and hopefully creating great gaming memories. yeesh.

WaveBoy commented on Nintendo Has "Lost Its Way" But Should Never B...:

What does it matter if a video game console is physically sexy or not, busty betsy down the street doesn't care how sleek your video game console & controller look or how matureZ the game you're playing is. She'll still roll her eyes and think less of you either way. ;) part of me feels that the videogame industry is becoming rather superficial. With too much of a focus on visuals, interactive movie-like gaming experiences, All in one entertainment hub, and serious 'Ferrari sleek' hardware rather than focusing on the sheer fun.

really though, i prefer my game consoles to look like toys, it's why i love the look of the NES, SNES, N64 & Gamecube. All fun designs that stand out from one another that 'scream' diversity. The white Wii is no doubt whimsical and fresh looking, but as we all know the Wii U is just another buffed up wii retread...For the first time, nintendo has dropped the ball by regurgitating their previous consoles design with very little difference...

Also, Nintendo has lost their ways with some of their key franchises....Their Wii U games seem all too familiar, both artistically and from a creativity stand point not including the unique use(half the time) of the Wii U game Pad. I want to see new exciting franchises being born that can stand up to the likes of Mario, Zelda & Metroid(ect) not safe sequels that are guaranteed to plunk money in the NintenBank. :P

WaveBoy commented on Review: Yoshi's New Island (3DS):

life's too short, and i just can't be bothered wasting my time playing pointless sequels such as this. This ISN'T worthy of being a sequel to the brilliant SNES original. Shame on nintendo for not caring about this lame uninspired cut & paste entry and handing it over to an inferior developer who has a weak tiny backlog of games behind it's belt...It was obvious from the beginning that this game was going to be a dud.

So what exactly is 'new' about New Yoshi's Island? Not much actually, just big eggs(yippie), disappointing stereoscopic 3D, and 3D crippling gyro controls. ;) I'd rather fork over the Princess Daisy Dollars(They do exist! :o ) and get a complete copy of the SNES classic.
