Xenesis commented on EU VC Release - 4th January - Harvest Moon:

In all honesty, I'm just glad they're releasing SNES games.

I mean, there's half the amount of Sega Megadrive games Vs Snes games....and considering the breadth of it's library the N64 would probably start putting it to shame on the VC at this rate.



Xenesis commented on Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Tro...:

Wormaster: On the other hand, DKC3 had a hidden Hard Mode which removes all the Kong Barrels and Continue points. Getting 105% is a Nightmare compared to 103%.

And like I said, it's not the hardness that truly bothered me of some levels, it's just that the change of difficulty of levels was in all honesty all over the place. This is especially notable in the last two worlds, the Fairground one and the Keep.

To be fair, the only reason I bought DKC2 was that I never owned it on the Console (I finished a friend's copy) and I wanted to give it it's full chance. I kinda regret not getting the original or this instead. :/



Xenesis commented on Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Tro...:

In all honesty, I thought that DKC3 was better than DKC2...there's something about DKC2 that bugged me...maybe it was the horrendously uneven difficulty (Nail biting level followed by moderate level then a cakewalk and back to the super-hard again) or that finding some of the DK Coins/Bonus Tokens is practically impossible if you don't already know where they are. :/

DKC3 seems to fix most of those problems - DK Coins are easier to find but are more a puzzle and the bonus levels seem to be logically placed to explore and find them....and like in DKC there's a practical difference between the Kongs again, rather than Dixie basically being more useful 95% of the time.



Xenesis commented on Wii Menu and Shopping Channel Updated:

Oh? Then how do you explain the ??? Channel in my 'Edit Channels' Menu (Not the Saves Menu), plus the fact I've never once plugged an SD-Card into it.

It's surely more than JUST an incompatible file.



Xenesis commented on Super Metroid:

I have to say, that while SM is indeed the shining gemstone of the Metroid series, a lot of the truly cool bits are lost if you haven't finished the original Metroid first.



Xenesis commented on Kirby's Adventure:

No, the Game Boy Classic had two Kirby games, Kirby's Dreamland and Kirby's Dreamland 2.

Kirby's Adventure is a different game to both of them and was remade and released on the GBA a few years back as 'Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land'
