Oliver commented on EU VC Releases - 14th September - Double Japan...:

How nice of Nintendo not to release Super Metroid... again!

And the new marketing trick with artificially limiting availability... very clever. And even with increased prices... something every manager could only dream about.
Why the increased price? Must be the skyrocketing oil price or the rising demand in asian markets... only Nintendo knows for sure.

Am i the only one getting _slightly_ annonyed with the VC? Most SNES Titles are not playing properly on Wii with YUV Cable, Titles released simultaneously on XBLA are looking much better (compare Sonic 1 and 2 on XBLA to VC; granted, VC has far more Games available)
Still no Conversion of Nintendo Stars into Wii Points...



Oliver commented on Shining Force:

Well, Shining Force is a must buy! I've recently (re)played it on the Gameboy Advance and it still is a great game... and I am not just being nostalgic: I gave the game to my much younger brother who never did play the original game on the Mega Drive/Genesis, and he really loved it, too. IMHO Shining Force has aged much better than PS II with the latter having much too frequent battles which get really repetitive because of the lack of options and strategies.
PS II has a great storyline (seldom hat a game with a more melodramatic ending) but those random encounters every two steps are far away from modern game design.
