calcifer commented on EU WiiWare Update: Cubello, Cue Sports, Cookin...:

Aaah Cubello .... Perfect for 10 minute sessions in between diaper changing and soothing the crying baby. (became father last tuesday, no more time for lengthy adventures) Thank you nintendo and 'bout time too!



calcifer commented on Review: Alien Crush Returns (WiiWare):

Only one player profile? quite an oversight in what is essentially a score attack game. Hope they'l fix that in a download soon! Anyways, downloading this one just the same.



calcifer commented on EU WiiWare Update: Tetris Party, The Incredibl...:

Ok, the long wait for Art Style games, not getting goo on wiiware at all etc, is infuriating but we DID get tetris party. Online tetris = sweet! (aka bye bye social life) Besides I have a day job and would have to call in sick if I wanted to even scratch the surface of all the great games the US got in the past couple of weeks. Thank the lord for small mercies.



calcifer commented on Review: World of Goo (WiiWare):

Anyone know the reasoning behind the decision to not releasing this as a digital download in pal regions? And yes, if we have to pay more than 20 euro just for the extra level we are getting screwed over.



calcifer commented on EU WiiWare Update: Mega Man 9, Strong Bad Ep 2...:

Tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1989!
With this, bomberman, tetris, devil crush, gradius and who knows what else coming up the wiiware service is starting to become classic gaming (hate the term hardcore) heaven!



calcifer commented on Europe VC Releases - 25th May - Super Mario Br...:

Im trying to rationalise people being disappointed with the release of super mario 2. I really am. Doki doki panic with mario visuals,...
Ok. So? It's not like most people didn't know about that for AGES. It doesn't change the playability nor the originality of this title one bit. What you get is some vintage Myamoto magic. And Birdo.

Everytime Nintendo tries something a bit different with one of their franchises the hordes are ready to dismiss it. Look at the universally reviled Zelda 2 for instance... Also brilliant, but different.



calcifer commented on Soldier Blade:

One more go.... Aaaaaarrrghhh. That sixth level is murder! I thought that after the fifth one it couldn't get any harder but the end of level boss in the sixth is kicking me where it hurts. Brilliant shooter, in fact one of the best vertical scrollers ever. I find myself playing this more than any wii-specific game out there (apart from Twilight Princess of course). The VC is THE reason to own Nintendo's machine if we get to play rare gems like these. More PC-engine shooters Ninty, c'mon!
