BulbasaurusRex commented on Interplay Is Remastering Cult SNES Brawler Cla...:

I'm not trusting anything Interplay says until they actually do something that proves they don't just exist in some kind of weird broken-down limbo begging for cash these days. It's really unprofessional that Clayfighter for DSiWare and Descent for WiiWare were never officially cancelled and are in fact still listed as coming soon on their website, the same website that now all of a sudden claims they're remaking the Clayfighter trilogy for PC.



BulbasaurusRex commented on Review: Pokémon Shuffle (3DS eShop):

This is a surprisingly good little puzzle game. The turn-based mechanics make it superior to Trozei, and, while it is a rip-off to spend any money on the game, the microtransactions are easy enough to ignore.



BulbasaurusRex commented on Interview: IRONFALL Invasion's Developers on B...:

Not all games need to run at 60 FPS, you know. The human eye can barely tell the difference, anyway. I'd rather have a guarentee of quality graphics, good AI, minimal lag through a stable online connection, and a consistent 30 FPS framerate (with 3D on or off) over any insistence of achieving 60 FPS.



BulbasaurusRex commented on Pre-orders Now Open at GameStop for the Wii U ...:

While I do have an adapter that allows me to connect a GC controller to a Wiimote, I've noticed that the motion delay of a non-CRT TV also affects button conrols of anything that uses the Wiimote's wireless connection. However, I'd want something that works with more than just Smash Bros. before I bite. Do any of the 3rd party adapters also work with everything from the Wii (other than GameCube discs themselves, of course) that accepts GC controllers?



BulbasaurusRex commented on 3D Streets Of Rage 2 Rated By Australian Class...:

Alright, depending on the updates made, this one might be worth double dipping unlike the first game. Any chance they could do the third game with the original Japanese storyline intact rather than the butchered version we got due to the 90's era censors?



BulbasaurusRex commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

Wait a minute, the people who make Let's Play videos on Youtube actually get paid for doing so, and that's why they have more ads than other Youtube videos?! While it does explain how they have the time to crank out these complicated things so quickly, I think they should be glad they make any money at all over what is essentially an Internet hobby along the lines of writing fan fiction, the only real difference being the use of fully copyrighted material. Do the people who make Abridged Series videos get paid, too?



BulbasaurusRex commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X is so Sizeable That It ...:

@Dr_Corndog Hmm, maybe, but it's still a pain. I remember back in elementary school computer lab we played games from 5 1/4" inch floppy disks on Apple IIs (it was the early 90s). The most popular game and also the only one that require two disks was "The Oregon Trail." We had to switch disks upon arrival at Fort Laramie.



BulbasaurusRex commented on Three New LEGO Games Heading for Nintendo Hard...:

Hmm, Jurassic Park, huh? I don't really care for that franchise. I thought this would've been a good year to do "Lego Back to the Future" (bonus points if it were actually released on October 21), but oh well, maybe next time.

On the other hand, I like the idea of "Lego Avengers." The first movie is one of the best comics-based movies ever made, and I can't wait to see the sequel. Hopefully, they'll do another one for the two Infinity Wars sequels once they eventually come out.



BulbasaurusRex commented on Weirdness: Hands Up If You Knew About the Supe...:

Yeah, I knew this, although I would've admittedly had no idea pre-Internet. Of course, the restore point makes it pretty much meaningless these days outside those still playing the original NES version, the original All-Stars version, or on the Wii VC without upgrading to the Wii U VC version.



BulbasaurusRex commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

I don't know why you'd want a Wii U remake of Wii Sports Resort over Wii Sports. Wii Sports had more to gain by getting MotionPlus controls, while the more in-depth sports offered in that title are better for the online multiplayer that was added. Still, I agree that Wii Sports Resort is a good option for this list, although playing it on an HDTV does mean that we have to live with the motion delay that is more of a detriment to this title than most others.



BulbasaurusRex commented on Review: Family Tennis SP (Wii U eShop):

Isn't "tripping over" when the ball is just out of reach preferable to not hitting the ball at all?

Anyway, I have no interest in non-motion-controlled tennis when "Wii Sports Club: Tennis" is also available.



BulbasaurusRex commented on First Impressions: We're Really Feeling It Wit...:

Well, that confirms it. There's no point in getting this when I already have the Wii version. I much prefer the full scale of the graphics on a TV screen over portability and stereoscopic 3D, plus I'd have to start the whole game over from scratch. I still haven't finished my first playthrough (only completed up to Mechonis Core)! Once I do finish it up, I'd rather just try the New Game+ rather than start over on this graphically watered down port.



BulbasaurusRex commented on Nintendo Steps Away From The Brazilian Market:

@DanteSolablood Socialism isn't just a yes or no answer. It's a sliding scale between completely unregulated capitalism and a completely government run economy. Any kind of government assistance is a form of socialism. Brazil just happens to be on the higher end of the scale than most countries that aren't communist. The United States usually prefers to stick to the lower end of the scale, particularily the Republican Party, although everyone nowadays recognizes that some government assistance and regulations are necessary.

By the way, there's a major difference between national healthcare (making government run health insurance available to everyone) and flat out free healthcare, insurance being a moot point. Also, you guys are paying for your additional benefits at the register (and likely with other taxes as well), as the sales tax is much lower on this side of the pond. It varies from state to state, but for example, here in Missouri it's about 4% for food and about 7.2% for everything else.



BulbasaurusRex commented on Nintendo Steps Away From The Brazilian Market:

@Savino We have free education here in the U.S., too (except college), as well as a recently enacted yet very controversial national health care insurance system; but no wonder your country has all those ridiculous taxes and tariffs if they're handing out completely free health care as well as free credit to anyone with a job. I wasn't aware that Brazil had such a socialized economy.



BulbasaurusRex commented on Here's a Handy amiibo Compatibility Infographic :

So basically Link, Toon Link, and Kirby are the choices that currently provide the most variety; while Mario, Luigi, Samus, Fox, Zelda, and Shiek are also good choices; and the compatability for Peach, Yoshi, and Donkey Kong is pretty decent.



BulbasaurusRex commented on Review: Child of Light (Wii U eShop):

The gameplay sounds quite a bit like Xenoblade Chronicles except with no character positioning and a turn-based component as to when you fire off each attack. Now that I have a Wii U, I'm in. Adding to Wishlist...



BulbasaurusRex commented on Code To Unlock Contrary Serperior In Pokémon ...:

@MegaBeedrill Yeah, but most HA Pokémon have been made available in all regions for players to obtain on their own (through either the Dream World, Hidden Grottos, Dream Radar, Hordes, or an occasional online giveaway) rather than relying on the luck of the draw on the GTS. There will still be many Overgrow Snivy mixed in with the Contrary ones, and some Japanese players will probably find it amusing to intentionally breed and offer Overgrow ones knowing their vic-, um, trading partners won't know the difference until it's too late.
