ZBomber commented on Details Uncovered of Upcoming Update for Zelda...:

I have to be honest that I regret blindly buying the season pass before even playing the game. I had a lot of fun with it for the first 20 hours or so, playing through the legendary mode and then some of the adventure maps. But at this point, I am so tired of the game. It is so repetitive and some parts just way too difficult unless you grind for a long time to get a high enough level character (and that takes forever, especially since some modes require a certain character). While I appreciate the company putting so much content into the base game and the DLC, I'm never even going to come close to completing everything in the base game. I have no reason to even try and play through the DLC... especially now that Smash U is out.

ZBomber commented on Two Pokémon Game Boy Color Titles Dated For N...:

@rjejr Yeah, the game that will go on sale on the eshop next month isn't related to the Pokemon TCG programs released on PC and Apple products.(The article is kind of confusing, they really should add GBC in there). The GBC game uses the first 3 sets of Pokemon cards (Base Set, Jungle, and Fossil; basically the first 151 pokemon) where the new one uses the modern day TCG, which has over 700 Pokemon and I'm guessing different rules/cards/strategies. I haven't played FF8 yet so I'm not sure how similar it is to that, but I would definitely recommend checking out videos of it on Youtube before buying it. Honestly it is a bit dated at this point, but I imagine if you or your kids are big Pokemon fans, especially of the original generation, they might get some enjoyment out of it. The big draw of the GBC game is the story mode, where you build your own deck(s) and use it to beat gym leaders. But again, the game originally came out in 1998 in Japan so it is pretty limited in terms of what content is in it. The free TCG doesn't have a story mode as far as I know, but the content is a lot more extensive and (I think) you can battle friends, which I don't believe you'll be able to do with the GBC version.
Here is a random video of the game just to get an idea http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktwdl_UmqbY

ZBomber commented on Two Pokémon Game Boy Color Titles Dated For N...:

@rjejr Pokemon Trading Card game on the GBC was a lot different from the TCG app they're offering now. You controlled a character that went around to each "gym" challenging people, collecting cards and decks and badges. The GBC version was like an actual video game based around the trading card game, while the one Nintendo offers now is basically a simulator of the actual trading card game. People that didn't play the game back in the day should probably pass, as (I imagine) the TCG has changed much since 1998. However, for people like myself who grew up with the original series and this game, its a nice throwback. I'm not interested in learning the new TCG but I still have great memories of the original version, so I will definitely pick it up when it comes on the eShop.

That said, I agree the $5.99 price point is way too expensive.

ZBomber commented on This Super-Cute Toon Link Nendoroid is Looking...:

This has been available for pre-order since MAY. What is up with this site today and the outdated news? The gamecube controllers, the mega evolutions and now this? I love this site and check multiple times per day, but you guys gotta step up your game.

ZBomber commented on Ocarina of Time gets a 2D Makeover:

Anyone remember when a team tried to do something similar to this about 10 years ago? They released a demo build, it was cool but never materialized into anything. Teams that do things like this need to remain SILENT until they actually finish it. Announcing it now will just result in Nintendo shutting it down and it never taking off.

ZBomber commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

This is incredibly disappointing. I had been checking back every day hoping for a soundtrack or some kind of cool exclusive .I'm not big on digital games in the first place as I prefer to buy physical ones. I think the least they could do is allow a platinum member to chose one from the platinum section and one from the gold... this is the first time I got Platinum and I really worked toward it after seeing all the great rewards in the past, and I'm already at gold status for the year. Just incredibly disappointed...

I used to rent this game with my friend. Yeah, its not the greatest game, but it does hold some nostalgia value for me. This was the only 2D Fighter I played in that era too... never really got into them.

ZBomber commented on Review: Strong Bad Episode 1 - Homestar Ruiner...:

I just finished this game today, and I thought it was awesome. The TGS comics were hillarious. Some of the dialogue was really good too. Yes, the game can get a little boring in some spots, but I also got stumped once or twice during the game. Took me about 3 hours to beat too...

ZBomber commented on Talking Point: Is the Virtual Console On The S...:

Well, I kinda gave up on VC awhile ago. I realized its cheaper to just buy the system and get the games I want. So, since then I got almost all of the NES, SNES, Genesis, and N64 games I wanted. VC is kinda pointless for me now, unless there is a rare game I would otherwise not be able to afford (Harvest Moon is one)

It took me a whole day to register 5 games. :p Whenever I tried to do the Wii Play survey it brought me to the "Whoops!" error page. It seems to be loading a little faster today.

I actually dont think this is a bad game... its quite fun actually... dont expect some wicked in-depth gameplay but its fun to play now and then to relive the old days...

ZBomber commented on Club Nintendo Comes To North America:

Wii sports does not count toward coins. The only games that work are the ones with the registration cards inside the box... for example, for games I have that don't work: Force Unleashed and Guitar Hero III because they arent made by Nintendo and don't have register cards inside.

ZBomber commented on Club Nintendo Comes To North America:

How to do I link my wii and my nintendo account together? And also will the games I downloaded on VC in the past count towards this? Thanks

EDIT - Registered my wii... but do the games I downloaded still count?

ZBomber commented on USA VC Update: Enduro Racer:

I got sick of waiting for them to come out with games I want, so instead I bought a NES and just buy whatever games I want from my local game shop...

I never had this when NES first came out, but I picked it up recently on cartridge, and while I love retro gaming, this didnt do anything for me

ZBomber commented on ActRaiser:

Fun game with a great idea, but I could do without a few of the elements. 4/5, worth the download.

ZBomber commented on Super Mario 64:

I never had this game, actually. I rented it once and played it at my friend's house before, but besides that I had little experience with this game. Then I got wii on christmas 2006 and downloaded this game. Very addicting, fun gameplay. The camera angles can be annoying at times, but for one of the original 3D nintendo games, its amazing! I still havent completed it yet but hopefully soon I'll start playing it again until I beat it.

ZBomber commented on Super Metroid:

Besides the end boss being kind of a let down in difficulty, this is my favorite Metroid game and the first game I completed on VC. 5/5

ZBomber commented on Super Mario World:

This might be my favorite Mario game. Not too easy, not too hard, its just right, and a ton of fun. 5/5

ZBomber commented on Mario Kart 64:

Fun to play with friends, but I think Mario Kart Wii and even Super Mario Kart do a better job. Still, quite a fun game. 4/5

ZBomber commented on Kid Icarus:

Really fun game, but pretty difficult. Atleast it has a password feature so you don't have to start at the very beginning everytime you die (Imagine that!) 4/5

ZBomber commented on Super Mario Bros. 2:

One of the first NES games I can remember beating.... maybe one of the only ones? :p Good game, although quite different from the other Mario games. 4/5

ZBomber commented on Battle Lode Runner:

The multiplayer on this game is fun for awhile.. the single player isn't bad either. If you're havin a few friends over this game is fun to play for an hour or two, but I dont think I'd be able to play it much more than that because it can get repetitive after awhile. 4/5

ZBomber commented on Super Mario Bros. 3:

This game is really tough. We had it on NES but I can't ever remember playing it because my sister lost it. So I downloaded it with my girlfriend a few months ago and this was the first time I really played it. She had the version on Super Mario All Stars so she was more familiar with it then me. We pulled an all nighter trying to get as far in the game as we could, and man is that save system a on 2 player! That part really bugs me because theres some levels we get stuck on for hours, but the feeling of beating that level after trying forever is incredible, and to me, what video gaming is all about. Its not impossible, but it sure isn't an easy task. The levels themselves are classic Mario platforming, probably the best (or atleast tied with SMW) 5/5

ZBomber commented on Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels:

Good stuff, but way too hard for my taste. If you're good at the original Super Mario Bros and liked it, get this game.... if you're bad like me, you might wanna pass unless you're curious.

ZBomber commented on Harvest Moon:

Its a fun game, but I dont think I could play it for more than half an hour. Definetly worth the points though, since trying to find a SNES copy will run you for a lot more cash....

ZBomber commented on The Legend of Zelda:

I remember playing this game with a game genie back in the day. Pretty tough game, I remember when me and my sister finally discovered the second dungeon in this game (I think a friend tipped us off... again this is before we had the internet)

ZBomber commented on Super Mario Bros.:

They sure dont make em like they used to. Even after having this game for 18 years, I probably have beaten it only once or twice. Some of the levels are just tough!

ZBomber commented on Super Mario 64:

Somehow I missed out on this in the N64 era... even though I had one. (Although I did at one point rent it(. This game is worth every penny you spend. Its very challenging on some levels.
