deadbattery commented on USA VC Update: Kirby's Dream Land 3:

@ chunky_droid

You know what? You're right.

I've wasted my life anticipating two-game weeks that aren't coming.

Goodbye forever, everyone!

And this is for real.

Since everyone here seems to have fallen in love with the "single-game week" concept, I feel it's best to remove myself ASAP.

@ Bass X0

Yeah. Those poor, naive fools. Destined to become sad, bitter adults who live with the regret of ignoring World of Goo. I'll bet sales of My Pokemon Colon Polyp shot up in every country.

I hear Nintendo's working on a My Pokemon Abortion sequel already; they just announced the graphics will be upgraded from "eye-meltingly hideous" to "just awful," and the game after that will improve the graphics even more, to simply "unpleasant to look at" quality.

My Pokemon Ranch moved up FIVE spaces? turns into Angry German Kid
AAAARRRRRGGGHHHHH!!!!! grabs keyboard and smashes it to pieces on desk, then plugs in new keyboard Yet another reason why Christmas should be cancelled. At least World of Goo remains at its well-deserved #1 spot.

deadbattery commented on USA VC Update: StarTropics II:

Dear Nintendo, I promise to buy these when you grow a heart and a brain and try to release them:

1. Ducktales (NES) (It's a guaranteed hit, you clods!)
2. Starfox (SNES) (Come ON, Nintendo! You own this!)
3. TMNT IV: Turtles in Time (SNES)
4. Kirby's Dream Land 3 (SNES)
5. Animaniacs (Genesis)
6. Aladdin (Genesis)
7. Marko (a.k.a. Marko's Magic Football in U.K.) (Genesis. Nobody remembers it, but I'd REALLY like it on Wii)
8. Beetle Adventure Racing (N64) (Hurry up!)
9. The Lion King (Genesis)
10. Michael Jackson's Moonwalker (Genesis) (Hey, I'm curious!)

I saw it on Wikipedia long ago, which, of course, doesn't necessarily mean it's true. It doesn't matter anyway, since I'll never download this.

deadbattery commented on USA VC Update: StarTropics II:

I finished the first Startropics after about six months - it's SADISTIC. Sometimes, the bosses shoot so much ammo at you, it's like running into a blizzard and dodging snow. I can't how many times I got a game over just before finishing a dungeon and had to start the dungeon ALL OVER. Yet, overall, I enjoyed the game.

The whole reason I became interested in the VC was for tons of under-appreciated games available at the click of a Wii remote. I don't like RPG's or shooters, so weeks in which the only choice is Enduro Racer or Boogerman are particularly rough.

deadbattery commented on USA VC Update: StarTropics II:

Single-game weeks became the norm, and now Hudson is most likely gone... geez. Talk about going down in flames. While every week recently brings me closer and closer to abandoning the VC for good, the irritatingly persistent hope that they may return to two-game weeks keeps me coming back. GRRRRRR. Since at least one highly-anticipated WiiWare game came out this week, who knows what next year holds for the VC. Maybe Nintendo of America will get their $#%t together. Or, most likely, not.

deadbattery commented on USA VC Update: StarTropics II:

And thus ends the year that had the most single-VC-game-weeks so far (or, in short, the FAILingest year yet.) Not with a crash or a bang, but a thud. Hey Nintendo, I have a New Year's resolution for ya: try taking the US Virtual Console seriously again!

On second thought, I loved the first Startropics... so I might get this... #&!%ing Nintendo.

deadbattery commented on World of Goo:

@ RGVEDA

That's exactly what I was gonna say! I just finished it too, and it NEEDS a sequel!

The weird thing is, the day I bought it, I HATED it, because I thought it was incredibly difficult, overpriced, and pretentious garbage, and I came close to deleting it. Now, though, I think it's not only the greatest Wiiware game, but one of my top 5 greatest Wii games period.

deadbattery commented on USA VC Update: Phantasy Star IV:

My only major complaint with the last few weeks can be simply described as follows: Nintendo is capable of releasing at least two games per week, yet, for no logical reason, they choose not to. There's no explanation given whatsoever for why are doing this.

deadbattery

#14

deadbattery commented on USA VC Update: Phantasy Star IV:

Um... NO games are suitable as solo releases.

Dear Santa: Please give Nintendo coal. Thanks.

Next week will be a single-game (better known as FAIL) week also. Guaranteed. And the next week. And the next week. And so on. Unless Nintendo gets slapped around enough. Way to be consistent, Nintendo! thumbs up

deadbattery commented on USA VC Update: Enduro Racer:

Yes, one game per week IS such a bad thing. Nintendo has the potential to release at least two, and they simply choose not to. Why they choose to keep the number of Virtual Console games as low as possible week after week, I honestly can't comprehend. They're not only irritating their fans, but limiting their own personal profit gain. It's stunning how counterintuitive and just plain idiotic they are.

deadbattery commented on USA VC Update: Enduro Racer:

I can just imagine the moron who checks Nintendo of America's email...

"Let's see... 408,920 requests for Castlevania 3, and zero for Enduro Racer... aw yeah, I think we know what to release!"

deadbattery commented on USA VC Update: Enduro Racer:

@ Tony

I know the perfect way to get Castlevania 3 - tell Nintendo that you DON'T want it. That way, it's guaranteed to appear, considering Nintendo's pathetic relationship with its fans lately!

I wouldn't hold my breath on the "Nintendo would quit being so mediocre" wish, because impossible wishes are the most painful of all.

deadbattery commented on USA VC Update: Enduro Racer:

I hate Nintendo of America. gives double middle-fingers

I'm literally about an inch away from abandoning the Virtual Console for good. Since the VC's current mission consists solely of pissing off fans week after week, I don't feel like being a victim much longer. They know damned well how to make fans happy - they've been selling videogames for almost 30 YEARS. They're just being jerks. And they deserve to suffer, not us.

deadbattery commented on Top 20 WiiWare Games in USA (10th Dec):

I also like Animal Crossing: CF. I played the Gamecube original to death, and I also played WW, but unfortunately, I got bored with it and sold it. So I guess CF is my replacement, because I don't think I should have gotten rid of WW. Oh well.

As for the chart: YAY, My Pokemon Mistake fell another spot! That makes me feel all giddy. Too bad Target Toss, Midnight Bowling and Pong Toss didn't fall as well.

deadbattery commented on USA VC Update: Metal Slug 2:

I'd love to punch whoever approves U.S. VC releases right in the face. And knock all their teeth out in the process.

I already have Metal Slug Anthology on Wii, just like any Metal Slug fan with a Wii... and a brain. Keep the VC release schedule sucking by sucking Wii points from morons, Nintendo!

deadbattery commented on USA VC Update: Boogerman:

Raise your hand if you're excited about this week... NOW!

I'm guessing you didn't raise your hand.

I hope the f***tards responsible for the Virtual Console releases choke on their turkey just a little bit. Five easy words: SINGLE. GAME. WEEKS. F***ING. SUCK. I really can't stress it enough. If they've decided to dedicate a week to crap, WHY NOT attach a second crap game (Super Pitfall?) just to get it out of the way? So maybe next week can be less disappointing? Oh well. Go ahead, Nintendo, lose fans and alienate people.

deadbattery commented on USA VC Update: Forgotten Worlds and Space Inva...:

At least the chain of single-game (read: FAIL) weeks has been broken.

I've always found Space Invaders pretty droning and repetitive. Why pay $8 for a compilation of it when you can easily find countless free versions on the Internet?

deadbattery commented on USA VC Update: Mega Man 3:

"It’s another one game week for the Virtual Console this week, but who can complain when the game is as good as Mega Man 3?"

Watch me.

Wow, three one-game weeks in a row. It's like a triple-layer-of-fail sundae! Bowlers would refer to it as a "turkey."

Is it good game? Yes. Is it really necessary to release only one VC game in a week? NO. Nintendo could easily release at least two. They're just being irritating for the sake of being irritating. Thus, they fail.

deadbattery commented on USA VC Update: Space Harrier:

What kind of a**clowns are Nintendo hiring for the U.S.? Two single-game weeks in a row - twice the FAIL! Ah, Summer 2008 memories rush back...

Gimme an F! Gimme an AIL! What's that spell?...

deadbattery commented on Top 20 WiiWare Games in USA (29th Oct):

I'm gonna get MadStone soon, along with World of Goo.

I'm anxiously awaiting Pong Toss's exit from the top 20. Sigh, I guess we'll be stuck with Midnight Bowling and Incredible Maze for a while (I'm guessing 50% of Incredible Maze's sales can be solely attributed to its use of the word "Incredible" to describe it, and the other 50% to its price.) But at least watching the sales of My Pokemon Ranch steadily fall makes me feel all giddy inside.

deadbattery commented on USA VC Release - Earthworm Jim:

Gee, I could've sworn that Nintendo was capable of releasing more than one VC game today. Because, you know, a second game means another opportunity for them to make more money. Oh well, Nintendo's loss.

deadbattery commented on Top 20 WiiWare Games in USA (22nd Oct):

People who download Pong Toss are merely naive fools who will learn the error of their ways when college ends (if they survive the binging and drunk driving, that is.) Anyone who downloads My Pokemon Ranch, WITHOUT regretting it, deserves for their Wii to not only break down, but self-destruct, then cause a blackout and force them to eat nothing but spam and cold canned ravioli until they go to confession. "Please father, forgive me, I... bought My Pokemon Ranch and didn't regret it. I decided that I enjoy overpriced screen-savers with horrendous "cute" graphics SO MUCH, I must give Nintendo financial support to make more lazy crap just like it in the future, thus flipping the finger to the serious Pokemon fans who have actual taste in quality software" "Go away. NEXT!"

deadbattery commented on Review: The Incredible Maze (WiiWare):

It would be nice if Nintendo had SOME quality standard for releasing games. Considering this game's sub-top-20 sales, though, it seems that people are finally getting smart about reading reviews, since they're all buying Tetris Party, World of Goo and Mega Man 9. But Midnight Bowling remains hot... probably not for long.

deadbattery commented on Review: MadStone (WiiWare):

I'm gonna download this. The only other Wiiware game I have is Defend Your Castle, and I'm mulling over whether or not to get Mega Man 9 (I've never played a Mega Man game in my life.)

@ Comment #36

My Pokemon Ranch is at #17 in Sweden? While it's at #4 in America? I OFFICIALLY LOVE SWEDEN! The proud home of meatballs, IKEA, and best of all, My Pokemon Ranch haters! YEAAAHHH!!!! Smart people rock!

deadbattery commented on Review: Art Style: Orbient (WiiWare):

This looks awesome. And, as a result, I don't expect it to spend much time in the top 20.

It sickens me to think of how many people will skip this and buy crap like My Pokemon Ranch, SPOGS Racing, Pong Toss, My Pokemon Ranch, and My Pokemon Ranch instead. (I'm aware of the repetition. The existence of that "game" is still an utter F***ING tragedy.)

deadbattery commented on USA VC Release: Super Turrican 2:

I DON'T prefer quantity over quality. I DON'T enjoy skimming though tons of uninteresting games to find something good. If I controlled the Virtual Console, I'd immediately remove universally-hated garbage like Donkey Kong Jr. Math, China Warrior, Urban Champion, etc. Whether you like it or not, junk like Super Pitfall is going to be released on the VC eventually. I think that the sooner they release it and get it out of the way, the better, because that's one less bad game to dread in the future.

deadbattery

#39

deadbattery commented on USA VC Release: Super Turrican 2:

Yep, JUST ONE VC GAME. Honestly, WHY don't they release a crap game alongside it, just to get it out of the way? I really wish Nintendo would stop the idiotic draaaaaaaaagggggggggiiiiinng out of the release schedule. Do they think gamers will value the game more if it's the only one released in a week or something? That's stupid.

@Mr. Cheez

Ahhh, how could I forget that wonderful summer? Waking up whenever I wanted, taking relaxing walks on the sunny beach, and being completely disappointed by the variety-free Virtual Console release schedule, week after week.

deadbattery commented on USA VC Release: Mega Man 2:

I'm not angry that Mega Man 2 was released... I'm angry because Nintendo has the nerve to only ONE Virtual Console game this week, while there's an EPIC back-catalogue of underappreciated Nintendo, Sega and Turbografx games that deserve re-release. Give us a choice.

deadbattery commented on USA VC Release: Mega Man 2:

"Do you really need something else with a game like Mega Man 2?"

As a matter of fact, I do. Good game or not, single-game weeks fail at life. They're just a notch better than no-game weeks. They could've easily released a trash game (Super Pitfall?) alongside it to get it out of the way.

Edit: I mean single-Virtual-Console game weeks.

deadbattery commented on Cruis'n USA:

I used to always play these games in arcades. Thank GOD I never got this on N64.

Also, I read that the Virtual Console version censors a bikini girl with a Cruis'n USA t-shirt. ARE YOU S***TING ME?

deadbattery commented on Pokémon Puzzle League:

I remember renting this game on N64, getting addicted and loving it... and never getting around to buy it. I was SO STUPID. So I downloaded it recently, and it's fun. I can only win the "Very Hard" battles when the AI character makes just the right self-destructive mistake.

We'll never see the old Pokemon Stadiums on Virtual Console - without Game Boy connectivity, they're pointless. Unless you get a kick out of battling rental Pokemon and playing "Kids Club" minigames all day.

deadbattery commented on Star Fox 64:

I remember playing this on my cousins' N64 on a trip to California. I should have gotten it for my N64. I was a stupid kid back then. Thank God for this second chance to get it. But where is RUMBLE? Do a barrel roll.
