evoxpisces commented on Review: Terranigma (Super Nintendo):

I am playing this for the first time right now and I feel like I just took a portal to 20 years ago. What a truly amazing game this is. I remember trying this on an emulator about 15 years ago but ended up not liking it because I thought the 5 Towers part was the whole game, and I grew very bored of it. But now I'm playing it on an actual SNES, I'm far past chapter 1, and now I get why this game is considered a masterpiece of the SNES.

evoxpisces commented on Satoru Iwata Reiterates Plans for Quality of L...:

Hmm "third pillar".. Where have I heard that term before..? Oh right! The Nintendo DS! Remember when the DS was introduced as a third pillar alongside the GCN and GBA? Well what happened then? Wii replaced Cube and DS replaced GBA. No third pillar there. So which console is this QOL nonsense replacing?

evoxpisces commented on New Fire Emblem 3DS Title Set For Battle in Ja...:

@Artwark I hear ya. I desperately want a new Advance Wars. The team that makes them has been tied up with Code Name STEAM though, which almost looks like a Battalion Wars type game. I;m excited for Code Name STEAM and Fire Emblem but I agree, I want a new Advance Wars!

evoxpisces commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2015:

Unlike Wii U there isn't much to look forward to on 3DS this year. The only game I'm guaranteed to purchase is Majora's Mask 3D. But the one I'm actually most curious about is Final Fantasy Explorers which wasn't on the list.

evoxpisces commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2015:

2015 will be the year of Wii U. Yoshi's Woolly World, Star Fox, Zelda, Splatoon and Xenoblade all look and sound great! Kirby I am undecided on since gameplay will primarily be on the gamepad which turns me off but the visuals look great. Overall this will probably be the Wii U's best year.

evoxpisces commented on Feature: These Are The Mario Kart 8 DLC Packs ...:

I love Alex's Super FX x Mario Kart 8 pack idea! I loved Stunt Race FX even if it horribly dated. My ideas:

Kirby x Mario Kart 8

Characters: Kirby, Dedede, Metaknight
Vehicles: Warp Star, Dragoon, Mini Halberd
Tracks: Dream Land, Yarn Land (or whatever the name was in Epic Yarn), Halberd, King Dedede's Castle

evoxpisces commented on Nintendo 64x64: Top Gear Rally:

I rented this back then and it was the first "realistic" racing game I played. I never even knew what rally racing was prior to this game, but after playing this game, I concluded that it was something that I liked. I never got around to playing the sequel but this game showed unparallel realism at the time in racing games and for that I loved it. 8/10

evoxpisces commented on Nintendo 64x64: Tetrisphere:

This is tied with Tetris Attack as my favorite puzzle game of all time. Really unique and highly addictive. I'm not even a huge fan of puzzle games in general but this one really sucked me in. 9/10

evoxpisces commented on Nintendo 64x64: Conker's Bad Fur Day:

I can't think of a better note for a system as great as the N64 to go out on. This game went through development hell and came out a masterpiece. A solid platforming game coupled with a memorable story and unforgettable characters with witty and hilarious dialogue... it just doesn't get any better than this. Too bad it didn't come out earlier in the N64's lifecycle so more people could've enjoyed it. 10/10

evoxpisces commented on Nintendo 64x64: GoldenEye 007:

For multiplayer action in the late 90s, Goldeneye was the absolute KING. I sucked at this game but it was never a dull moment playing this with 3 of my friends. Even the game's campaign mode was fantastic and even got me to watch the movie. My only gripe is that multiplayer require human players. At least this was remedied in Perfect Dark. One of the best FPS's of all time. 9/10

evoxpisces commented on Nintendo 64x64: Mischief Makers:

During a time when I thought 2D platformers were going to be gone for good, this game showed me there was still life left in 2D platforming. I knew nothing about this game before I played it, other than its genre, and I rented it first and was very confused by it at first. Eventually I got into it and really ended up loving it. A hidden gem of the N64. 9/10

evoxpisces commented on Nintendo 64x64: Space Station Silicon Valley:

An absolute gem of a game. I followed this game from its announcement to its release and was not disappointed with the final product. If anything it was better than I anticipated. There is no game out there that's like it. It's simply unique and memorable. The music was great, the level design was great, and the game was seriously a blast to play. I could replay this on an annual basis and never get bored of it. My only gripe with it is that stupid glitch preventing you from getting 100%. But I recommend this N64 game over all others for those who haven't played it. Critically underrated. 10/10

evoxpisces commented on Nintendo 64x64: Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon:

I rented this out of the blue back in the N64 days and much to my surprised, I loved it. I only played this once, though I just actually bought this the other day to replay it and add it to my collection. The crazy thing is, it's been 16 years since I last played it and I still remember a lot of it. I remember the music, the levels, the characters. An underrated N64 classic for sure. 9/10

evoxpisces commented on Nintendo 64x64: Chameleon Twist:

This game surprised me. I rented this back in the day and thought it was gonna suck. Well, it wasn't the best game but I still had fun with it. It was a simple platformer and the chameleon tongue moves were interesting. It was incredibly easy and short but I still enjoyed it. Dunno how well it holds up today though. 7/10

evoxpisces commented on Nintendo 64x64: Mario Kart 64:

Super Mario 64 and Mario Kart 64 were the two games that made me buy a Nintendo 64. I absolutely loved Super Mario Kart on SNES and as such I had to have Mario Kart 64. It definitely lived up to its predecessor and this game gave me many, many hours of play. Even today I can go back to it and play it like it's still 1997. Objectively speaking, the controls are a bit slippery and the tracks are often long and empty, but overall it's still a very solid racing game. 9/10

evoxpisces commented on Nintendo 64x64: Cruis'n USA:

I'm not going to lie - this game is not that good. The graphics were terrible, the gameplay was bad, and the physics could not be more off. Yet somehow I enjoyed playing this. It was incredibly dated in 1996 but even moreso today. It's by no means a deep game and it is the furthest thing from the quintessential racing game, but I pop this one into my N64 every so often for a quick run through the country. 6/10

evoxpisces commented on Nintendo 64x64: Diddy Kong Racing:

I was a HUGE fan of Super Mario Kart and Mario Kart 64 so when I heard Diddy Kong was starring in a kart racer with an open world and 3 different vehicles, my hype meter went through the roof! Seriously, I was more hyped for this game than any other game that I can remember. And it didn't disappoint! DKR is forever my favorite racing game and one of the best N64 games of all time. 10/10

evoxpisces commented on Nintendo 64x64: Castlevania:

This was my first Castlevania game so I didn't know what to expect, but I knew the series was highly regarded. The first time I played it I thought it was great. This might even qualify as my first "horror" game. It wasn't the best game but it captured the mood perfectly. Years later, I became a Castlevania fan and have now played every Castlevania release since the original. Unfortunately, this game doesn't live up to the name. It's not a bad game, and it does resemble the series in style but the gameplay was clunky, the story was forgettable, and it just really has not aged well at all. But it gets bonus points for being what I think is the best attempt at capturing Castlevania in a 3D environment. 6/10

I've heard good things about this game, and I remember renting it back in the day but didn't like it. I'd like to give it another shot but I'm afraid it won't hold up.

evoxpisces commented on Nintendo 64x64: 1080° Snowboarding:

Didn't like snowboarding games until SSX Tricky. 1080 failed to capture my interest for the most part. It might just be personal preference but 1080 is too boring and too simulation-like to be fun for me. But before this game I don't remember any snowboarding game even existing before, so there's that. 5/10

evoxpisces commented on Nintendo 64x64: Super Mario 64:

Having recently replayed Super Mario 64 for the 4th or 5th time, I can safely say it is a timeless classic that is still one of the best and most innovative games ever created. It truly stands the test of time and is every bit as great today as it was 18 years ago. 10/10
