GamerWho commented on Shadow of the Eternals Developer Double-Dips W...:

This article is missing a lot of information.

The Kickstarter is now the only way to contribute. The reason this wasn't their at first was because Kickstarter wasn't originally available to Precursor because they were not in the US.

The amount raised directly in the first few days, around $150,000, has been deducted from their original target for their Kickstarter target, leaving $1,350,000.

They managed to get a Kickstarter, because they felt they could reach more people, with better trust in the KS platform.

They waited for their pledgers to vote on what we wanted doing with our pledge money via the dev forum that pledges are give access to.

Posting this kind of article just adds to the confusion to potential backers.

GamerWho commented on Wii Firmware Update Makes Transferring to SD F...:

These SD Updates are pretty meaningless when your internal memory gets used up by greedy games such as Smash Bros Brawl, taking up 128 free blocks of memory and which CANNOT be copied to an SD card. Nice one Nintendo, now I don't have enough memory for new Wii game saves, let alone Wii Ware or VC.

GamerWho commented on Hands On With SnakeByte's Wireless Retro Contr...:

I'd imagine it'd be pretty easy to rewire an original classic controller into a megadrive / snes / turbo grafx etc controller. Could just get old ones from ebay. Then the button configs can be set up for each contoller for maximum authenitcity.

Turbografx is awesome. Great to see the CD games too, considering the scarcity of the add ons / Duo systems. It would be great if they localized Snatcher, who knows?

GamerWho commented on Mega Man 1 & 2 Coming To North America Soon?:

Yeah, the US can't really complain about Megaman, considering they can get Megaman anniversary and Megaman X Collection for the Gamecube, probably about the same price as a VC download. :-)

Both are worth import for Freeloaders or Importers!

"All right, EU, now can we stop hearing your whining? No offence, but I've run out of sympathy at this point."

As long as I can stop hearing whining from the US about paying $50 for new Wii games. There's loads of countries that would like to be able to get games that cheap, the UK being one of them.

GamerWho commented on Will Sega CD Support Ever Come To The Virtual ...:

For certain games they'd have to emulate the RAM back up carts, like Shining Force CD, so I don't see it being that simple. Great system though, well some of the games, and would be a cheap alternative to eBay. But I don't think thinning out the game pool is a good idea, unless we start getting 10 games a week.

GamerWho commented on Hardware Focus - Commodore 64:

How much did C64 games go for back in the day? I used to have a Spectrum, and if that came to the VC 500 points would make a lot of the games as expensive as they were back then, I remember being able to get Speccy games for about £3.00 from Newsagents (of all places!) at least if memory serves me correctly. (Werewolves Of London & Gregory Loses His Clock FTW!)

Of course wether they would successfully load when you got them home was a bit of a sore point.

GamerWho commented on US VC Release - March 3rd - Super Turrican:

"you know... Nintendo could just not give us any vc games. we should be thankful, not picky."

Nintendo gives you VC games? Crap, I paid for mine.

Yes Nintendo doesn't have to give us a decent VC selection. Just how I don't have to give Nintendo my cash. BUT if they want it out of my wallet, they'll have to try to tempt me, won't they ;)

GamerWho commented on MSX to Hit Japanese Virtual Console in May:

@Jogurt

Though I doubt we'll see a SegaCD Channel before the release of some sort of HDD, I'd also love to get one. Even if it just let you play your original Sega CD discs on Wii.

MSX is good news. I how we get the proper Metal Gear 2! And Snatcher of course, even though it'd have to be translated?

GamerWho commented on Are Virtual Console games good value for money?:

Most carts are only expensive on ebay if you want them in the original box with instructions. Otherwise you can pick most carts up for around £5. The main benefit of doing it this way is you get to choose what games you get each week! Ebay is a neccessary evil where I live. In Greater London its quite hard to buy retro anymore as the high street game stores don't bother. Even my local Gamestation has sent their retro collection to a bigger branch (i.e. further away). Shame that, as I used to rinse their Gamecube aisle every other week and bought a few rare MegaCD and Dreamcast titles from their too.

Time to hook up your SNES and start giving your cash to the second hand market on eBay rather than Nintendo. That'll show them! Playing the carts is better anyway! I expect when SSMB and No More Heroes comes out that we'll have dry weeks anyway to tempt us to buy those.

GamerWho commented on Win a Classic Controller! - Caption competition:

"The Mario Bros were arrested today after an ongoing feud drove them to castrate long-time rival Bowser in his sleep. The two Brooklyn plumbers were caught fleeing the scene with the Koopa King's testicles still in their possession. Their attorney claimed non compos mentis on behalf of his clients stating years of magic mushroom abuse had altered their perception of reality. Other symptoms of prolonged mushroom abuse are known to include stunted growth, localised hair-loss and an almost obsessive compulsion for collecting stars."

GamerWho commented on US VC Releases - 14th January - Pac-Attack:

Bass X > I imagine Square don't release their bigger franchines (i.e Final Fantasy) because of all the FF ports and remakes on DS and PSP. They'll probably release their better RPG catalogue once their hand held sales dwindle.

GamerWho commented on EU VC Release - 4th January - Harvest Moon:

I'm betting Nintendo won't start releasing the most requested games until sales in Wiis and Wii games begin to decline. They'd rather have you pay for a full price Wii game. Shame that all the big name titles for Wii were SOLD OUT pratically everywhere in the weeks leading up to Christmas.

GamerWho commented on Paper Mario:

When you complete the game and get the end screen do you have to reset the console? I wanted to save after I'd beaten the last boss so I could go back and do all the mini quests but it didn't budge from the "the end" screen. If this is so it's a pain! Don't know if I can be bothered to backtrack all the way from the last save point in the game!
