meppi commented on Remake Request: Burning Rangers:

Oh wow, when first seeing the iconic image pop up combined with the word "remake", I thought it was actually being done.
Feel a bit sad now. Such a wonderful game.
Only thing that let it down a little was that it pushed the Saturn a little bit too hard on certain fronts. Still a pure classic through and through.

meppi commented on Review: Mario Golf: World Tour (3DS):

Good on you guys for doing the review like this.
Very refreshing from nearly all other sites and publications who don't see any problem with reviewing a partial game and pretending to know how everything including the multiplayer works in the real world.
battlefield 4 reviewers, I'm looking at all of you....

meppi commented on Yumi's Odd Odyssey Is Coming To Europe Under I...:

So glad we finally got confirmation on this as well as that they are keeping the original name.
Also loving how they refer to this game as a Rubbering
Action Game, which brings back a ton of memories of the very first in the series! :)

meppi commented on Review: Yumi's Odd Odyssey (3DS eShop):

@dumedum Completely disagree.
Putting Gravity Rush as a example of a game where it's an absolute joy just to move around in the world in this review, is spot on.
I actually completely forgot about the Sony sister-site and now have it bookmarked thanks to this link.

Huge fan of the series ever since the Super Famicom game.
They might even ask €60 for this and I would still pick it up day one.
Sadly a EU release hasn't been confirmed yet, but I'm hoping it doesn't take much longer.
Already imported the physical version from Japan, but I don't yet have a Japanese 3DS. Damn you region lock! :(

meppi commented on Sega Has "No Plans" To Release Sonic Boom In J...:

@MuchoMochi
Yeah whatever.
Sega outsourcing the series to an unproven western developer is more than enough to have doubts about this will turn out. They have tried this in the past with the series and it never turned out very good. Neither does it turn out well for other series/developers: look at how Golden Axe, Bionic Commando, Lost Planet 3, etc have turned out.
Not to mention the way they are "redesigning" the characters alone makes my abomination comment pretty darn relevant.

While it might not be on the same level as Final Fight and Streets of Rage or even Double Dragon, I do have a big soft spot for Rival Turf.
But for whatever reason never got the sequels. Nice surprise to see this one on the eshop. Will pick this up very soon.

meppi commented on Rayman Legends And Splinter Cell Blacklist Bot...:

I was ready to buy Rayman day one in February. Yet, I've still have to pick up a copy due to the delay. A lot more games have taken priority over it while February was quite barren.
Waiting for it to hit bargain bin price now as the coming months will be expensive enough as it is.
They brought it upon themselves if you ask me.

meppi commented on Mighty No. 9 Passes Wii U Stretch Goal With A ...:

Well considering I upped my pledge from $20 to $60 just to help the console versions funded, you could say I'm looking forward to the game. ;)
Hoping some of those other stretch-goals will be met as well as they would certainly up the replayability of the game.

meppi commented on Keiji Inafune Thanks Mighty No. 9 Backers in N...:

So glad for them. They all seem so very excited. :)
Can't wait for this game to be released even if it takes a long time. Really hope that we'll be able to get the console versions funded as well as I'd love to have it on the Wii U.

meppi commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Reiterates That There's "Noth...:

Didn't expect to get anything and I'm certainly not miffed about it either.
If anything I'm surprised and delighted with all the free stuff I've been getting from Nintendo this past year, be it on the Wii U VC with the Famicom anniversary games which were basically free, as well as all the promotions for the 3DS that gave me several eshop versions of retail games! Been happy to help people out with a free copy of Monster Hunter and Animal Crossing as well, so I think Nintendo have been very generous already.

meppi commented on Peter Molyneux Reveals His Favourite Zelda Tit...:

While it's a great game, it's certainly not my favourite one. Far from it actually.
My favourite one still is A Link to the Past and will probably remain that way.
But my second favourite one is Majora's Mask. I truly hope that next year we will get a OoT like remake for it on 3DS.

meppi commented on The Wonderful 101 Misses the Top 20 in UK All-...:

@Doma
To be fair, there aren't enough of those out there yet to put the blame solely on them. But when looking at sales numbers for Sin & Punishment 2 with millions upon millions of Wii owners out there, I guess it just doesn't matter. Gaming has changed a huge deal in the past decade, for better or for worse. It's just sad to see how a game such as this which would have been an instant hit in the 16 bit days for instance is getting ignored for the likes of the next generic fps game or Fifa update. :( It certainly won't affect my enjoyment of the game when my copy finally arrives from shopto, but when sales numbers start to impact the possibility of getting similar games in the future, it really does make me sad.

meppi commented on Nintendo Download: 15th August (Europe):

@Luigifan141

I was lucky enough to pick up a copy from Videogameimports in 2005 for just over €200 when I when I started collecting Famicom games. :)
Had no idea it would balloon to the crazy prices it goes for today.
Funny thing is that my copy is in much better condition than the ones going for €600+ on ebay. I don't have any intention of selling it though. ;)

meppi commented on Satoru Iwata - "There Are Some Reasons Behind"...:

His reasoning is understandable, yet when someone imports a game from another region, Iwata shouldn't feel like it's his responsibility to make sure that software is cultural acceptable or has legal restrictions in the region where the publisher isn't selling the actual software.
Clearly when a consumer is willing to go through the trouble of buying items from different locations through importers, they are fully aware that those games might be created with a certain local flavour.
Like I said, I understand where Iwata is coming from, but he shouldn't feel the need to protect a very small portion of consumers from themselves.
In the end we will find a way to play region specific games.
Heck Sayonara Umihara Kawase came in the mail today and I've yet to buy a Japanese 3DS.... Which I will if I have to, but I certainly don't want to since I already have a perfectly fine EU XL. :-/
