KeeperBvK commented on Violetta: Rhythm & Music:
That grin is giving me the creeps.
KeeperBvK commented on Hyperkin's RetroN 5 Console Allegedly Infringe...:
I am well aware of emulators not being illegal and I can imagine it being a lot of work. But that's not the point. Having to put work into anything certainly doesn't make it better. I would imagine planning and pulling off a bank heist would be quite a lot of work, too, but so what? And emulators for platforms like the NES, SNES, Mega Drive or whatnot might not be illegal per se, but it is obvious that they are used for illegal actions well over 99% of the time. These guys behind those emulators are well aware of that as well or if not, then they should be.
How about another analogy? I create a powerful weapon (the emulator) that can also be used as a can opener (the legal options it provides, yet nearly nobody uses). I only construct the weapon, but I don't manufacture any ammunition (the roms) for it, despite this ammunition being really easy to come by for anyone. Does that mean I can wash my hands in innocence? Certainly not.
@Bass_X0 Exactly what I thought. It's hilarious to see the creators of emulators complain about their work being stolen.
KeeperBvK commented on The Original Final Fantasy Is Getting The 3D C...:
@Bass_X0 Why would it be too large? In what way? Cult status? File size? Length?
KeeperBvK commented on Review: Mega Man 7 (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo):
MM 7 was a decent game, but I couldn't stand its difficulty. Or lack thereof. I rushed through the entire game on my first day with it without encountering any problems, just for the final boss to be frustratingly hard. And when I had used all of my E tanks in said battle, I basically had to reply the last four stages again to collect more tanks. That's horrid design.Still, it's overall a decent game, just a weak Mega Man.
KeeperBvK commented on Match 3 In Moving Player’s Upcoming 3DS eSho...:
Yeah, that seems pretty odd.
KeeperBvK commented on Nintendo Download: 18th September (Europe):
@Einherjar I know that you didn't mention the 3DS, which is exactly why I did. The recent weeks of MM downloads in Europe were only on 3DS. There was no continuity in WiiU MM releases at all, so there is hardly a "break" as you called it. It's all just come to its foreseeable end.
KeeperBvK commented on Review: Bit Boy!! ARCADE (3DS eShop):
Wow, I can't understand the discussion that's been had here. To me the review is absolutely spot-on. Phil has mentioned exactly all of the issues I had with the game as well and yet he's managed to not entirely bash the game but mention all of its positive aspects as well. I, too, found the presentation and premise of the game to be charming at least, but this can't make up for all of its gameplay flaws.
@Einherjar We only had a series of MM releases on 3DS now and there is hardly anything left to be released on that platform. Just the NES board game and the Game Gear one. I wouldn't expect any MM games on 3DS anytime soon.
KeeperBvK commented on Review: Glory of Generals (3DS eShop):
@OorWullie Oh, rest assured that I am. I just can't stand how the English language is sometimes horribly deteriorating in the comment section here at NL. And I'm not even not native-speaking.Don't get me wrong: Everybody does typos, but stuff like "we'll thought-out" is not a typo, as one would never hit get even close to that key when typing "well". It's laziness in combination with an utter lack of understanding the most simple grammmatic rules. Just like the "should of" that's spreading like wildfire.
KeeperBvK commented on Weirdness: Here Is A Super Famicom On Top Of M...:
@Link-Hero Yup, sure is. Tenchi no Souzo in Japanese. Best SNES game in my opinion.
KeeperBvK commented on SEGA Announces Sand-Based Arcade Game, Probabl...:
@ejvirzi How is that "gross"? You might consider it a bad idea or something along that line, but how on earth is it gross?
Also, to me it looks awesome. Great to see there's still some magic left in SEGA.
KeeperBvK commented on Review: Street Fighter 2010: The Final Fight (...:
@Kaze_Memaryu I laughed.
KeeperBvK commented on Video: Which 8-bit Version Of Ghostbusters Are...:
Wow, I had no idea the MS version so superior. But yeah, I had the Mega Drive one and thought it was awesome. It even was really scary for me as a kid. Can't imagine that anymore.
KeeperBvK commented on Review: Phonics Fun with Biff, Chip & Kipper: ...:
@NicolaHayden As an editor you should be aware of the difference between "its" and "it's". You did not only confuse it in your comment in the comments section but also in the review.
You even used both of them the exact wrong way. Not just one of them.
If people in the comments can't use proper English, that's one thing, but PLEASE take care of your articles, Nintendolife...
KeeperBvK commented on Review: Mega Man X3 (Wii U eShop / Super Ninte...:
@Melkac MMX6 is also enjoyable from beginning to end...I'd even say it's better than X3 which was a serious letdown.
KeeperBvK commented on Nintendo 64x64: Castlevania:
So glad to see an unbiased, fair and positive review of the game.It's a classic and I still hold it dearly.
KeeperBvK commented on Nintendo Confirms Details of Its Super Smashin...:
@Whopper744 There's a contact button at the bottom of the site.
KeeperBvK commented on Nintendo Download: 28th August (North America):
Wow, fantastic week. Good for you guys in NA.
KeeperBvK commented on Weirdness: Earthbound Designer Shigesato Itoi ...:
@WinterWarm Why wouldn't this make for a heated debate? How the hell can somebody honestly ask why anybody should give a "crap"? How about if a state in the country you live in was polluted by massiva radiation? So you wouldn't care about the fresh produce coming from that region? Or about the people trying to make a living there? Or about official information contradicting other official information?
@DonSerrot Is your post meant seriously? "If they are deemed safe then they are safe"? Wow, I don't even know what to say against such massive naivity. Especially considering the Fukushima accident there have been SO many lies from official sides.
KeeperBvK commented on Expect a 'Shocking' New Pokémon Project on 26...:
@Serebii So which "shocking" is it then in this context? Is it the one involving electricity or the one involving surprise?
KeeperBvK commented on Review: Nano Assault EX (3DS eShop):
@faint It's not "shump", though, but "shmup". "SHoot theM UP".
KeeperBvK commented on Review: Mysterious Stars: The Samurai (DSiWare):
Why wouldn't they release games on DSiWare?There are still lots of people owning a DSi but no 3DS. Plus, every 3DS owner can also download it. So DSiWare potentially reaches a far bigger audience than a 3DS eshop game.
KeeperBvK commented on Video: Nintendo's Wild Gunman And Sega's Bank ...:
@Maelstrom Slow comment day?
KeeperBvK commented on Sean Bean Declares His Head is 'A Bit Square' ...:
@Blaze Slow comment day? Seriously, there are way too many people asking whether it's a slow news day. This is an amusing bit of news, so just let it be if you're not interested in it.
KeeperBvK commented on Review: Anne's Doll Studio: Lolita Collection ...:
@midnafanboy Why would it go back to three? There are five versions of the game, no matter when they have been released.
KeeperBvK commented on Super Mario Kart Speeds Onto the North America...:
"A day normal than the standard Download Update"?
A day normal than?
@midnafanboy As you can see on the right side of this very page, this is the fifth one.
KeeperBvK commented on Nintendo Download: 31st July (Europe):
I as a 3DS owner can't help but feel pretty disappointed. For weeks now we haven't seen a whole lot of worthwhile digital releases apart from Pokémon TCG. Especially the 3DS VC looks quite dire.At least Wii U owners are getting some decent to great releases. I loved Rainbow Bell Adventures back on the SNES.
KeeperBvK commented on Review: Mega Man 5 (Wii U eShop / NES):
Regarding the comments here: Just to make this clear, this game isn't called MM V, it's MM 5.
The Roman numbers are reserved for the Gameboy entries, thus making it easy to distinguish between them and the NES entries.
@Spoony_Tech "we'll thought out"? You do know that "we'll" is the abbreviation of "we will", right? So it's a "we will thought out" review? How could anybody mess up a word as simple as "well" like this?
KeeperBvK commented on Review: GAIABREAKER (Wii U eShop):
@Nintenjoe64 Nano Assault looks good (haven't played it), but it hardly qualifies as a shmup. Some parts definitely resemble a shmup, but others are rather railshooter sections like Sin & Punishment or Starfox. That's at least what I get from the trailer.
@DakotaM47 There are still good ones being made today. Just none on Nintendo platforms unfortunately.
KeeperBvK commented on Nintendo Dominates List of Top-Selling Games i...:
@SetupDisk Because it used to be bundled with every single PS3 for the first few months.
KeeperBvK commented on Retro-Styled 2D Action Adventure, Midora, Hits...:
To me it looks an awful lot like the Pokémon games on GBA and DS. Visually at least. Not gameplay-wise, obviously.
KeeperBvK commented on EarthBound 20th Anniversary Figures Seeing Rel...:
@WarioMan You do know that one facepalms when something stupid is being done, right? You don't facepalm when there's just something you don't like.
And I fail to see how adecision to release Earthbound figurines only in Japan where the market for such is much bigger than in any other country would be a stupid decision. It's just a sad one.
So, nothing to facepalm here.
@Stomatopod17 You've been waiting 20 years for a game that had been released in 2006?
KeeperBvK commented on Dragon Quest X Is Now Adventuring Onto 3DS:
@Tsurii897 Why would that be stupid? Might wanna reprhase what is simply your opinion. You don't like the idea of an MMO on a handheld. Good for you, but it's not stupid. You think that upgrading a PC is "bullpoopiepoodlepoop"? Well, it's not. You can perfectly keep your PC the way you bought it for years without having trouble running next to all new games. In fact you would only have to buy new parts about the same time you would have to buy an entirely new console because the old one isn't supported anymore. How is either one bullpoopiepoodlepoop?
KeeperBvK commented on EA Explains Why Its Abandoning Dedicated Handh...:
@unrandomsam Kotor without real buttons for £7 compared to an NES classic with real buttons for £4.50...I'll go for the latter, thanks.
KeeperBvK commented on Tecmo Koei Will Soon Be Koei Tecmo in Europe, ...:
Didn't they mention the exact same thing in the news you just commented on?
KeeperBvK commented on Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition Releas...:
@HylianJowi It's already bad enough that people start using the word "release" wrong more and more, but please, you editors don't have to pick this up.A game IS released. It doesn't release on its own.
KeeperBvK commented on Review: Mega Man Xtreme 2 (3DS eShop / Game Bo...:
@kingston589 How about reading the other recent reviews?
KeeperBvK commented on Super Mario Bros. 2 Stage for Super Smash Bros...:
So shouldn't the title of the news say "NEW Super Mario Bros. 2 stage", then?
KeeperBvK commented on Slew of Capcom Titles Announced for North Amer...:
@Noelemahc You're most welcome.
@Noelemahc But that is exactly what they are doing. Just follow the link in the news.
KeeperBvK commented on Chocobo Racing 3D Was Canned Because Square En...:
You're talking about the Square of the 90's. Unrandomsam is talking about the Square-Enix of today.So I'm totally with him on this.
KeeperBvK commented on Nintendo Download: 5th June (Europe):
@Game-Over "There", not "their". And it wouldn't hurt using some punctuation.
KeeperBvK commented on Review: Grinsia (3DS eShop):
Then try Terranigma. It's easily the best SNES RPG and it's all real-time.
KeeperBvK commented on Nintendo Announces The GameCube Controller Ada...:
@antdickens There's no technical reason it wouldn't support the Wavebird. The adpater wouldn't even know whether you've plugged in a standard controller or a Wavebird. It still receives the same signals.
