grumblebuzzz commented on Nintendo Confirms Two More Virtual Console Tit...:

I think one of the biggest bungles of the Wii U era that has yet to be rectified has been the Virtual Console system. We will be going into year two of the console's lifecycle in November and still nothing from N64, a console whose games were available on the Wii on day 1. It's just nonsensical and as a retro-gamer who does not do the whole emulator thing, very frustrating as well.

I may check out Steamworld Dig since I held off on 3DS. Still waiting on those N64 Virtual Console games, Nintendo. I think we have pretty well mined the NES catalog at this point. When you're having to dredge up unwanted junk like DK Jr. Math, it's time to move on.

Basically here's the divide: Under 25 years old: "I hate this! It's not polished! I want a true 3D world to explore!" Over 25 years old: "I love this! Excited to see this classic game updated! Love the original top-down style!" Of course there are exceptions to both rules, but the consensus of both stands.

grumblebuzzz commented on Talking Point: The Wii U's Identity Crisis:

Also a problem is the fact that a lot of the sales of the Wii were to people age 40 and older because of Wii Sports and Wii Fit. These people are still perfectly content playing the Wii they already have and don't see any reason to upgrade.

grumblebuzzz commented on Talking Point: The Download or Disc Dilemma:

I have downloaded a couple retail titles to my 3DS, but there are some games that I prefer to buy the physical copies to (mainly games that I want to keep forever since Nintendo has no username or cloud service to keep my downloads secure in case my 3DS dies).

grumblebuzzz commented on Feature: Series Reboots That Have Divided Gamers:

Kid Icarus was unplayable to me because of those controls. I have big hands because I am an adult male and I felt like I would have had to grow octopus tentacles out of my fingers to effectively navigate that game. As for Other M, I'm a supporter. I actually did like the story a lot because it showed a vulnerable side to Samus, whereas that's why a lot of people disliked it.

Animal Crossing followed by Luigi for me. I hope that NoA is using all this delay time for AC to really make the villagers' personalities shine in New Leaf, as opposed to City Folk, where each personality only repeated the same 12 phrases or so over and over.

grumblebuzzz commented on Talking Point: Time to Adjust Nintendo Direct ...:

These are basically commercials for games that have already been announced. It started out as kind of a mini E3 showing kind of thing, but quickly devolved. I'll continue to watch 'em probably, but I won't get my hopes up for anything big anymore.

Capcom has just become *bleepin idiotic. "Oh, this computer only thing will determine the future of a console series that's been around for 20-something years." Gah. Shut them down and give Mega Man back to the guy who created him.

This Animal Crossing bs is really starting to bug me. It's straight up out in Japan and has been for almost a month and yet the rest of the world has to wait till like June or July? Why? Yes, there's text to translate and lots of it, but a team should have been on this months and months ago.

grumblebuzzz commented on Interview: The Team Behind Paper Mario: Sticke...:

I think Miyamoto may have put the character restrictions on the Sticker Star team because of the lackluster characters that were introduced in Super Paper Mario. Aside from some of the villains and Tipi, I don't recall a single one of them. Still yet though, since Sticker Star has sort of a feel to it that the first game had, it would have been nice to see Parakarry delivering a letter to a toad or to have Tayse T. have a restaurant in Decalburg where a bunch of hungry toads gathered to eat. A few cameos would have been nice, but I really can't complain much since this is the best game to come out for 3DS since I don't remember when.

I love how everybody here just blew me out for making a simple observation. I was always under the impression that these games were big since the original included a seperate memory card. One simple "you're incorrect" would have sufficed. Ugh. I so wish there were another nicer Nintendo forum to populate.

What do you guys think of the Power of Illusion demo? I got it and it seems like the full experience might a fun and possibly very content-heavy game. I still don't really care for the graphics though and I actually DID grow up in the early 90's with the SNES and Genesis Mickey games. If it had come out in this form on maybe the Game Boy Color or Advance, I'd be a little less critical but this the 3DS; they could make it look a little better. The character sprites are, for the most part, kinda hideous.

A decent week and always nice to get new 3DS Virtual Console games, but I do have to wonder why some of the more famous NES games, like SMB 2 and 3 haven't been released yet. Gradius is ok and all, but portable versions of those two in their original 8-bit glory would be a gold mine for Nintendo. Seems weird that they're holding them back.

The obsession with resolution is really a paradox for me. While I want Nintendo to be competitive this generation with other systems, I personally do not care about how shiny and crisp it looks and I'm sure there are others like me who grew up on NES games that agree.
