evosteevo commented on The Man Responsible For Sega's Blast Processin...:

I ended up getting both systems as a kid, although I had a SNES first. I heard that while Sega's processor was faster, it was on a smaller scale than the SNES. Like a car that could accelerate faster but top out at 60mph.



evosteevo commented on Video: See the Differences Between Star Fox Ze...:

@vitalemrecords Actually the Virtual Boy was pretty cool. I had one back then. I heard Nintendo discontinued supporting it because there were some people having health issues because of it. Nintendo didn't want to be seen as a company that supported a device that could give people seizures or heart attacks. If they had wanted it to be a success all they would have had to do was put the right games on it.



evosteevo commented on Take a Look at Nintendo's Game Awards 2015 Nom...:

I'm glad Super Mario Maker is up for nomination for game of the year. While there's bound to be people who think that's silly, as a kid that grew up with the original Super Mario Bros. this game is really a kid's dream come true. I literally remember thinking how cool it would be to be able to make levels for games back then. Seemed like such an impossibility in 1988.



evosteevo commented on Final Fantasy Explorers Will Have a Collector'...:

I'm not holding my breath but that would be great if it included a download for the Final Fantasy 3DS port that we never got. $30 more for the collectors edition makes it possible, but I have a feeling it will include something else like a figurine, a keychain, and a soundtrack.



evosteevo commented on Nintendo Download: 5th November (North America):

@Zach777 It's really just business decisions. I'm sure if Reggie could release all the VC games he would. It takes time and money to port these titles to the VC. On top of that any third party games take a cut of the profit. I'm actually surprised we got Stinger from Konami instead of another Nintendo game. This all boils down to the Wii U selling poorly in the U.S. If it had sold more we probably would have a bigger selection like the way it was with the Wii. It's all about budgeting the profit the Wii U brings unfortunately and really it seems Reggie doing a good job cause we're still getting third party VC games.



evosteevo commented on Video: New Hyrule Warriors Legends Video Shows...:

The draw distance is greater than I expected. I'm looking forward to this. I still have yet to max out my file on the Wii U. Quite a lot of replay value, definitely worth every penny I put into it. Hopefully the 3DS version will deliver on the same level.



evosteevo commented on Nintendo Download: 29th October (North America):

I still wish DS games hadn't become a VC thing. I like the DS library but it just isn't as old as many other possibilities. Maybe Nintendo is focusing on mostly Nintendo ports to make up for the lack of Wii U system sales. After all, if they had added say, Sega Saturn VC, then a portion of the profit would go to not only Sega but whatever third party the game was made by. This is all because the Wii U has not sold well in the U.S. I'm very tempted to import Nintendo's next system...



evosteevo commented on Sega: Recent Sonic Games Haven't Been "Accepta...:

Yeah....and I bet Sonic will be sporting some flashy earrings and Tails will be wearing a giant bow tie....and it will be a 10 year contract signed. And these permanent changes will all be done before any fan feedback can be heard.



evosteevo commented on Fresh Project H.A.M.M.E.R. Details Reveal Shig...:

This game doesn't look like it ever would've amounted to much. Very uncreative. Videogames in general should be fun, but they should also benefit the player so it's not a big waste of time. Things like puzzle solving and gameplay elements that test your ability to multi task. Or the very least a story with a valuable lesson to be learned. Sure there are great games that lack these elements (House of the Dead Overkill is pretty funny), but your not going to see tons of them every console cycle. This is one less video game in what has become a oversaturated market. And yeah, I would've been pissed if I found out $1 mil was dropped on some CGI cutscenes, for this one at least.



evosteevo commented on Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition is Creeping Up On...:

My goodness, no matter where I am on the internet anytime Capcom is mentioned there's at least one person complaining about the company. For anyone unaware, you should realize that it will be Nintendo's decision if this lands on the Eshop in NA. It has nothing to do with Capcom trying to get money from regions. That goes for any game really. Nintendo approaches the third party and gets permission and then Nintendo does all the digital porting. Good grieve....



evosteevo commented on These Limited Edition Analogue Nt Consoles Wil...:

@TheRealThanos That's pretty amazing! Thanks for the link. I wish I would have known about these guys sooner, I would have saved the cash for one of these systems. I hear about so many knock off consoles I didn't think anyone took this stuff seriously. Heck, it might be better just to ignore the HDMI upgrade and stick with SCART RGB, although that HDMI upgrade does have some interesting features like a scan line generator and sound output configurations. Guess it might just boil down to if you use it with a CRT or not.



evosteevo commented on These Limited Edition Analogue Nt Consoles Wil...:

@TheRealThanos That's freakin' hilarious! The HDMI upgrade is the exact same kit that I was referring too! It's the kit Kevtris recently made. He's got some videos on Youtube of the process. He must of made a deal with these guys and supplied the upgrade. I agree though, the new hardware is quite tempting. It would be nice to have an all in one package for Nintendo 8-bit gaming to free up entertainment space and power outlets. Congrads to the people who got theirs!



evosteevo commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X and Dragon Quest Help W...:

@DarthNocturnal Also DQ6 is on the DS. We've basically got all the DQ games in some shape or form. 1-4 is on the NES. 5 and 6 are on the DS. 7 on the PS1 and 8 on the PS2. 9 on the DS but I kinda doubt Nintendo would bring 10 over like they did 6 simply because it's a paid online service and so far Nintendo has taken a stance against paid online for Wii U in NA.



evosteevo commented on Talking Point: Is Konami About To Exit The Con...:

Then Konami releases a new Contra game from out of nowhere and every gun happy American buys it and puts Konami on top of the ball DLC that nobody can resist buying....Seriously though, I can't imagine Konami dropping out despite the lack of games coming out the floodgates. They were so great back in the arcade days. Would be a shame if they weren't finding skillfully qualified programmers to pass the torch to if their older staff members aren't around anymore.



evosteevo commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Legacy Makes The Vir...:

Things must age differently in Europe because here in America there is no reason to think the virtual console is "going out" or "needs improvement" As for the prices, if you guys are paying more for things then I guess maybe that's something that should be addressed but $5 for an NES game is just fine.



evosteevo commented on Natsume Suggests That Nintendo's Moving Away F...:

@technotreegrass A lot of people seem to be getting the wrong idea. Natsume was specifically talking about their titles, not the entire SNES library. On top of that they said it was unlikely, but not ruled out completely. I don't think Nintendo would just rule out SNES VC all of the sudden. It's just going to take time to release everything and right now they seem to be jumping around different console ports to establish a variety. I'm sure we will see more SNES ports in the future but perhaps nothing from Natsume anytime soon.



evosteevo commented on Natsume Suggests That Nintendo's Moving Away F...:

I'd like to see arcade games myself. They started on the Wii VC and then just abruptly stopped without getting to some really good stuff. I was glad to see Rygar, Ninja Gaiden but there are some really good games that never got released on any platform cept maybe PC emulation. SNES has some great titles but it seems most that are missing from Wii and Wii U are trademarked like Batman Returns, Tazmania, Roadrunner etc.



evosteevo commented on Social Networks Go Into Meltdown Over Apparent...:

Doubt they will ever remake Twilight Princess. It's not even old yet, just pop your Wii edition in the Wii U. Like the whole dark world stuff but it's been done twice now so I'd imagine we won't be seeing anymore Zelda stories like that. I keep saying this but they really need to go back to the original concept of Zelda with Hyrule being over run with monsters and just Link on a quest to rescue Zelda and free Hyrule from Ganon. No towns, just people hiding in caves and dungeons with pieces of the Triforce hidden inside them.



evosteevo commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Dreamcast:

I never even knew Sega was having problems when the Dreamcast was released. I had one the second month it was out and thought it was awesome. When Marvel vs. Capcom 2 came out I used to play against my friend for hours everyday for months. It was the first game I ever played that actually looked better than the arcade version. That alone had me thinking the Dreamcast was going to be huge. Didn't really keep up with gaming news but I do remember people talking about the PS2 before it hit saying it was going to make the Dreamcast irrelevant. Too bad Sega couldn't have put the DVD player in it, that would have really been an attraction in those days, though I don't think it would have made a difference. Sony really did a fantastic job with the PS1 so naturally it made sense that people were hyped for the PS2.



evosteevo commented on Turn It Up To Eleven, Guitar Hero Is Making A ...:

I'm sure Activision knows this will do well on the Wii U. A new generation of teens who wanna rock out is bound to be out there. I never got into the series myself but remember it being played at a party one time. It was actually a pretty fun experience. Lots of great tunes.



evosteevo commented on Games Consultant Believes Nintendo NX Could Be...:

Just a controller!?! Please, that's the lamest most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. Nintendo is making a new console. There not going to bank on just a new controller that interacts with things that aren't Nintendo products. Where would that leave their gamers? You know, the ones that have a 3DS and Wii U. I swear, what was this person thinking? Nobody ever knows what Nintendos releasing until they show it. That's what seperates Nintendo from the others.
