XyVoX commented on Nintendo Download: 30th July (Europe):

Bit Boy!! ARCADE gets 4/10 but on most other places ive seen this get reviews, it gets 7-8/10 and personally i think it looks quite good at 89p im in.



XyVoX commented on Review: 3D Streets of Rage 2 (3DS eShop):

This review is wrong its a CLEAR 10/10, in reality there is a fairly big difference between a 9/10 & a 10/10 and i dont know of anyone who sessioned this that would say it aint a 10, of course there's plenty of internet wingnuts that would say otherwise.



XyVoX commented on Limbo Looks Set to Finally Arrive on the Wii U...:

Got this on PC (Humble Bundle) PS3 & Vita was crossbuy if i remember and it is a very good game typically getting 9/10 almost everywhere it gets reviewed so expect the same score from Nintendolife i reckon.



XyVoX commented on Humble Nindie Bundle Allows Wii U and 3DS eSho...:

Love the Humble Bundle i always get a bundle for PC or Mobile if it looks good just a shame its not for Europe at the moment hope that changes though, i have to say this is a very BIG feather in the cap for the Nintendo ecosystem it really is.



XyVoX commented on A Totally Complete Version Of Star Fox 2 Reall...:

Utterly criminal that this game had never seen a release back then and it used the FX chip 2 which was twice as powerful as the first FX chip that was used in the first Star Fox, would of been amazing.



XyVoX commented on Review: 3D Thunder Blade (3DS eShop):

Im getting all of these 3D Classics that Sega/M2 are putting out as each one is the best version of the game its ever been and alot of care and attention has gone into them (cough cough unlike Nintendo releases) surely that's gotta be worth it.



XyVoX commented on New Super Mario Bros. Receives ESRB Rating For...:

This is definitely a Great 2D Mario game, this game got me in trouble big time i have to say as it came out literally the day i went on my Honeymoon and so i grabbed it and brought it with me she's in the shower im on my DS-Lite she comes out of the shower im on my DS-Lite she pops out for groceries on my DS-Lite she come back im on my DS-Lite we're on the beach im on my DS-Lite love that game my wife wasn't impressed i have to say.



XyVoX commented on Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush Fails to Brea...:

Agreed im not buying a Wii U game if i can only play it on the Gamepad i as i suspect most people buy Wii U games so they can mainly play them on a HDTV also ive never been a fan of the poor screen quality/resolution i mean the Gamepad doesn't even display the native resolution of Wii U games which is ridiculous, when it came out it uses a resolution less than 720p and alot of other portable devices at this time were using 720p-1080p screens.



XyVoX commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd April (Europe):

Ahh Kirby's Dream Land 3 originally used an on board cart Chip for the SNES:
The Super Accelerator 1 (SA1) chip is used in a number of SNES games, including the popular Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.[12]

Similar to the 5A22 CPU in the SNES console, the SA1 contains a processor core based on the 65C816 with several programmable timers.[2] The SA1 does not function as a slave CPU for the 5A22; both can interrupt each other independently.

The SA1 also features a range of enhancements over the standard 65C816:

Upgraded 10.74 MHz clock speed, up from a maximum of 3.58 MHz
Faster RAM, including 2KBytes of internal RAM
Memory mapping capabilities
Limited data storage and compression
New DMA modes such as bitmap to bit plane transfer
Arithmetic functions (multiplication, division, and cumulative)
Hardware timer (either as a linear 18-bit timer, or synchronised with the PPU to generate an IRQ at a specific H/V scanline location)
Built-in CIC lockout, for copy protection and regional marketing control



XyVoX commented on Review: 3D Fantasy Zone II (3DS eShop):

@Kirk Exactly to many Fanboys are supporting their lazy nonsense Sega are charging around the same price as Nintendo but just look at the work/love Sega are showing their catalogue, Nintendo it doesn't matter fanboys will support them.



XyVoX commented on Streets Of Rage 2, Gunstar Heroes And Sonic Th...:

Damm thats 3 of the VERY best Megadrive games you can possibly get what a great selection from Sega to choose for their quality 3D updates, i mean Sonic 2 is way better than Sonic 1, Streets of Rage 2 is way better than Streets of Rage 1, and i dont even need to talk about Gunstar Heroes, WOW.



XyVoX commented on Review: Super Mario 64 (Wii U eShop / Nintendo...:

This Thread amplifies the CLUELESSNESS of Many 'so called gamers' to say that Mario 64 doesn't hold up well is so inaccurate/stupid its almost laughable, if that whats your 'gaming palette' tells you then YOU REALLY aren't getting what video games ACTUALLY have to offer but some distorted version is what your receiving, i mean level design,controls 'the game as a whole' are STILL as good as it gets and to many STILL unrivaled, CLUELESS i tell ya, enjoy your distorted gaming fellas.



XyVoX commented on Video: Donkey Kong 64 Tumbles Onto Wii U Virtu...:

Having owned both PAL & NTSC versions of this game i can assure you that the PAL version feels way more clunky & lethargic in its movement climbing, walking, running etc is hugely different compared to the NTSC version considering that this game is going to be a little slower naturally as your meant to be controlling a Big ape it feels way more responsive in your hands using the NTSC version. PAL 50hz = no buy.



XyVoX commented on Buy Three Nintendo 64 and DS Virtual Console G...:

@whodatninja well unlucky you then to put it bluntly you have sorely missed out on a vastly different experience then, as i come from the UK and have ALWAYS going back to the SNES/Megadrive days when i was 20yrs old i was always educated and therefore only played 60hz systems its a totally different beast (the way the games ARE actually intended to be played) Watered down Graphics,Controls,Timing of gameplay mechanics no thank you. Night & Day, Totally different Beast, Vastly superior the way the game looks/plays are NO exaggeration.



XyVoX commented on We Have Shigeru Miyamoto To Thank For The Supe...:

So what this tells me is that as usual Nintendo was 98% about to release another incomplete 3DS system and by chance at the eleventh hour the OBVIOUS best feature of the New 3DS was added, Mmmmm you struggle to learn dont you Nintendo, i specially remember Nintendo stating that a second stick technically couldn't be added to the last 3DS models, Ridiculous i tell ya.



XyVoX commented on Review: 3D Out Run (3DS eShop):

In all honesty these Sega remasters from their more popular catalogue and the amount of obvious work that has to go in them all for £4.49 then (as most people are recognizing) the inherent lack of effort that Nintendo is bringing to the VC and its own popular titles at best a virtual straight emulation in many cases for more money that Sega's games and you can yet release once again their lack of understanding in such matters.



XyVoX commented on Nintendo Download: 12th March (Europe):

Holy SH+T where did that come from the excellently done Sega 3D remasters all half price ahh yes thats something ive been waiting for for ages and to show my appreciation i shall download them all including at full price Outrun. Obviously the Might switch forces for Wii U and number 2 for 3DS at those crazy prices are a must.
