deKay commented on Save The Universe From Evil Vegetables In Upco...:
@Octane Sure, it doesn't look all that great, but there's clearly a lot of effort put in.
@andrea987 That wasn't what I meant. I was responding to "how difficult is it to put at least a little effort in a game". If you've made a game, you'd know.
@Octane Have you ever made a game?
Why would a load of vegetables want to stop you eating ice cream, and eat vegetables instead? When they're vegetables. They want to you eat them.
deKay commented on Review: Swords & Soldiers (Wii U eShop):
@Reuf excellent. Once Scram Kitty is complete I'll get on it. Thanks!
deKay commented on Hyperkin Finally Shipping Its Retron 5 Console...:
So where is the proof it's finally shipping? They've already said "definitely April", "I guarantee within 30 days", "they're shipping tomorrow" and all these have passed with nothing.
Another release date. Yay?
What I'd like to know is if they've fixed the last level so it isn't impossible any more. There's difficulty curves in games, sure, but in the Wii original this was like a gentle incline throughout the entire followed by the final level - a vertical wall twelve miles high. With spikes on it. And ninjas.
deKay commented on Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshid...:
I had my profile wiped for linking to my blog. That's all.
deKay commented on Rusty's Real Deal Baseball Has Some Interestin...:
No EU (not PAL - the 3DS isn't a TV!) release?
deKay commented on Nintendo Shows Off April's Game Boy Advance Wi...:
Already got all those on the GBA, no need to buy them again to play them on the big screen - I can use my Game Boy Player or the Retron 5.
deKay commented on Developer Interview: Causal Bit Games On Scrat...:
Eh? It doesn't look anything like Altered Beast.
deKay commented on The Analogue Nt Is A NES Fashioned From Aircra...:
This is going to be expensive. I mean, it looks lovely and I want one, but their NeoGeo is $650. I'm sure the NES will be less than that, but we're still talking hundreds!
Hyped for this. Reminds me of Wolfchild, actually.
deKay commented on Nintendo Download: 13th March (Europe):
Holding out for an Unepic or Castlestorm price reduction, so nothing this week for me.
deKay commented on Nintendo of America Releases Snaps of Young Ce...:
I had no idea there was a TV series called About a Boy.
deKay commented on Hardware Classics: Bandai WonderSwan:
The Wonderswan was so cheap. I picked my first up, soon after release, for just £30. My SwanCrystal only cost about £40 too, not long after that came out. I don't think I paid more than £15 for any of the games - not even FFI, FFII and FFIV.
Loved the console, and it had some great unknown games. Disappointed that you've not mentioned Engacho! despite having a picture of it - it was certainly... unique: http://lofi-gaming.org.uk/museum/games/game.php?id=291
Also great were Flash, Tarepanda no Gunpey, and (my first game for it) Tekken Card Fighters - the only Tekken game I've ever enjoyed!
Literally no idea who any of those people are. And surely the kid from About a Boy should be in his 20s now? How come he looks 10?
deKay commented on A World Of Keflings Now Expected In "The Latte...:
How will it differ to the 360 version?

I want to play as Bentley Bear!
deKay commented on Review: Picross e3 (3DS eShop):
Need to break open the piggy bank and see if I can get this on Thursday. Loved e and e2.
deKay commented on SEGA's Retro Remakes Down to Fans for "Next Li...:
Junction would be amazing in 3D. Not that there's any chance at all, ever, that'd happen.
deKay commented on 2DS Now Available For Less Than £100 In The UK:
The holiday season in the UK is July/August - not Christmas!
deKay commented on Review: Mahjong 3D - Essentials (3DS eShop):
And yet ANOTHER game which isn't actually Mahjongg.
deKay commented on Nintendo Download: 5th September (Europe):
Yet another Mahjongg game that isn't Mahjongg. When are we going to get a proper one?
deKay commented on Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure ...:
@hydeks Yeah, problem is it's £40 or something to import, when I have a preorder for £20.
@MrSRArter We got nothing.
But when is Scribblenauts Unlimited coming out? We still haven't got that yet
deKay commented on Nintendo Download: 27th June (Europe):
Not sure why people are getting excited about Balloon Fight being 60Hz - it isn't. It clearly says "This is an optimised release of the EU version to reflect the speed of the US title." - therefore NOT 60Hz.
Yet ANOTHER Mahjongg game which isn't actually Mahjongg. So disappointing
deKay commented on First Impressions: 3D Altered Beast:
@Damo I used it so frequently I forgot it wasn't a standard feature
The graphics on the MD version (on which this appears to be based) are nowhere near as good as on the arcade original: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RswiLl7_v6E
@Alphack3r It's my tagline! They stole it! https://twitter.com/dekay01/status/339652752663801856
Also: "Also included is a two-player link-up mode and the option to switch the order of the beast transformations; for example, the dragon becomes level one's monster and the wolf level two's. It's an interesting change and one that we admit we could have done with back in the early '90s, as it lends additional longevity to what is a painfully brief experience."
That facility was in the original Megadrive game!
deKay commented on Nintendo Download: 30th May (Europe):
What happened to the "Buy both Zeldas, get a discount" deal we were promised?
deKay commented on Europe Now Receiving Club Nintendo Stars For A...:
It's odd, because although I've already claimed stars for 3D Excitebike and 3D Kid Icarus (back when they first came out), most other games couldn't be claimed at the time.
Oh and FWIW - don't go claiming stars unless you need them now - if they're sat in your account for a year without spending them you'll lose them. Best to wait until you need the points THEN claim them.
deKay commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2013 - Spr...:
Oh man - Rayman from hyped to nobody cares. What a difference a delay makes.
deKay commented on Review: Mahjong 3D - Warriors of the Emperor (...:
Yet another game called Mahjongg which isn't actually Mahjongg. Would it be too much to ask to have a proper Mahjongg game for once? Please? I'm still stuck playing one on the Famicom, in Japanese, because I can't find a version in English for any other console I own.
deKay commented on Nintendo Power Claims Sonic 4: Episode 1 Will ...:
Here's how I feel about this price tag: I don't care. Until they fix the shonky physics and get rid of the stupid homing attack, I won't be buying it anyway.
