krakensoup commented on Review: Mario Party 10 (Wii U):

Probably my least favorite Mario Party game yet but still mildly entertaining. It feels way too streamlined at times and most of the minigames feel like rehashes. It's not a bad game in small doses though. I personally love the Bowser Party mode but I couldn't help but feel they could've expanded on this so much more. For what it is though I'd give it a 6.5/10.



krakensoup commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Dreamcast:

Unfortunately never owned a Dreamcast but I've wanted one for some time now. I might just bite the bullet and get one and start a collection one of these days.



krakensoup commented on Nintendo Submits Trademark for NES Controller:

They should produce more NES, SNES and N64 controllers. It was great to see new GCN controllers being produced even if they were meant for Smash Bros Wii U.

@Grumblevolcano That thought has me frothing at the mouth. A console that is compatible with all Nintendo controllers? They'd have to make every console's entire library available or at least most of it. That'd be the ultimate console.



krakensoup commented on Playtonic Releases First Animated Footage From...:

Ugh I can't wait much longer! It's been so long since I last anticipated a game this much. Rare of the N64 era was my absolute favorite developer and now it feels as if they're back but with a new face. I seriously hope Project Ukelele turns out as great as I think it will. Btw the animation is pretty cool!



krakensoup commented on Feature: The Making of Rocket: Robot on Wheels:

I rented this back in the day but honestly didn't remember too much of it. I bought it recently and played it last night and can affirm, yes this game is indeed great. I didn't think the "Chick-Tac-Toe" minigame was too obscure. I figured it out in a minute or two. A sequel would be most welcome (by me at least)



krakensoup 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.



krakensoup 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?



krakensoup 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!



krakensoup 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.



krakensoup 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.



krakensoup 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



krakensoup 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



krakensoup 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



krakensoup 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



krakensoup 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



krakensoup 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
