@Jahir Just like she says at the end, if you like her voice you should check her whole channel. She sure loves her Pokémon, it's a must see if you're a fan of the game.
Aren't facts more interesting than crazy fiction? Theories might be fun, but even when they do their homework, they're still not real.

OMC79 commented on Video: Did You Know Gaming's Latest Pokémon ...:

Finally, a good recommendation for a YouTube video that is not one of those cliché'd theories or another guy playing the SMB theme on a banjo with his feet. These videos are well researched, I recommend you to watch the whole series of them. You should also check GameTrailers' Pop Fiction and Pop Facts series for a change.

OMC79 commented on Yes, People Are Still Making NES Games In 2015:

I might get banned after this but seeing these articles about the game theory videos that were posted only about a week after each other, the similar case with the fan arrangers and now this with a headline that gives the idea that the homebrew scene was inexistant prior to this game, makes me think these articles are sponsored.
Come on!! There are conventions every year of the homebrew scene, games are made even for the least known consoles like the Channel F and are sold as carts or discs.
Are people paying some of the NL staff so that their YouTube videos get more views; so they can sell their arranged music or so an overpriced homemade cart gets more orders?
You should be more careful with the so-called news you post. Are you gonna cover relevant Nintendo-related news or are you gonna cover every fanmade Nintendo-related work?

@DontPlayDumb Nintendo brand or generic do work. The first time I did a real transfer I converted a generic dual GC/GBA to GBA into a GB/GBC cable. It is even possible to add a switch to make a GBA to GBA into a dual mode transfer cable.
So, for you, not getting the original cable is a good excuse for that contraption? I hope not, because if you have a PS3 and you lose those Sony "original" USB cables for your controllers, you'll have to use one of those boards to charge them.

This guy sure took the Kennedy speech on the Moon way too seriously: "... do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard". I traded my 1st and 2nd gen Pokémon 15 years ago by myself to get the pokedex'es complete using many combinations: two GBAs, a GBA and a GB, a GB and a GBP, an N64 and transfer paks, and so on. If you are into retro these days, you are likely to have at least a GBA and a GC with GB Player or even a cheaper combination. A cable should be around 2 dollars at least. So, why to do this convoluted procedure? "Just because it is hard".
This guy might not have friends but has a lot of time in his hands.
@TeeJay: That's exactly how I feel about this (see below).

Another fan arranger article... I personally don't think this is material for the news section, maybe a forums entry. Serously, if you are gonna keep covering them, we'll get 2 or 3 pages a day of these. I know fan arranger have their own fans, and I acknowledge their effort (despite being a somebody else's work), but I just don't think it deserves to be in the news at the home page (unless NL becomes a fan arrangers specialized site).

Why can't Nintendo adopt an account system like Sony's? With Sony's consoles, not only I can have my games in more than one console, the system registration is done online in a simple web page and it's so easy you might not even notice you're done and you don't have to sacrifice your game saves.

Yawn... If you are gonna post as news every time one of those fan arrangers makes another chiptune rendition of music, the news section is gonna be flooded. If it would have been official, it would have been interesting, but there are so many of these today, this is nothing special.
By the way, the Wii U VC version might not be yet, but there's the Wii VC version which I've heard has a workaround for the slowdown. It's cute, but I recommend the PSP version instead, if you get it digital, you can play it on the PSV or PSTV.

OMC79 commented on Dead Or Alive Producer Feels That A Cultural D...:

Duh! In other news, communists and capitalists may actually have a different view on economics (Just some sarcasm about that dumb headline that gave me the wrong idea about the producer).
The whole article makes a good point but is nothing new. I've spent a lot of money getting harmless retro 8-bit and 16-bit games from Japan because they were not released here for being too Japanese.What's wrong with Twinbee, Parodius or Umihara Kawase? Just because they are cute or have some risqué situations it wouldn't had turn me into a sex offender.
I do think DOA is quite sexist, especially the 5th installment, but, hey!, It's just a game. Feminism or puritanism in excess can turn into fascism quite easily.

This is no rumor, the channel Gaming History Source has posted videos about this claims by elicense even for Fantasy Zone music, just the darn music, not the content. He had to change those videos to private. Change the headline, this is no rumor. Sega has to clarify and take action if necessary about this elicense jerks.

OMC79 commented on Weirdness: A Budding Little Mac Beats Mike Tys...:

@kurtasbestos LOL. Now that would have been news. There are a handful of these videos and some have been there for years and many are for real. The guys at Nintendo Life seem to have just discovered You Tube, probably prior to the announce of the creators program, they didn't know what YT was, they must have thought it was a Nintendo Channel or Nintendo Video rip-off. They've been showing too many "weird" videos lately. Dumb theories, old videos of feats and bad beginners editing trying to be funny, really guys? You should use that little app that's been on your Nintendo consoles since the Wii. I guess the next "Wierdness" will be sonic.exe or AVGN.

I have the next one for you guys: Wierdness: Kids in schools make flipnotes using their notebooks instead of Flipnote Studio.

OMC79 commented on Video: A New Game Theory for Pokémon Lore Get...:

Geez! Enough of this theory crap. It's just a game, not a comic book. it doesn't need that their multiverse, physics or anything is over-explained or "theorized" to make it a good game. Just look at the whole mess Marvel is now, I really doubt that Multiversity rip-off will actually help them amend the past 20 years of crap they've been putting out. The worst part about these theories is that they take things that are actually part of the "lore" but are not well known and show them as "theories" of their own with all kinds of clichéd crap.
These conspiracy "theories" are becoming just like those stupid creepypastas, the first 5 or so were funny, scary and even believable, now it's just a bunch of clichés derived from the early ones and these are the same now. Universes, multiverses, limbo/purgatory, long lost relatives, limbo/purgatory, autism, limbo/purgatory, the minds of the authors. Did I forget to mention limbo and purgatory?
I wish Nintendo Video would stop posting those moronic Cartoon Conspiracy videos, I hope they won't start posting these game theory videos too.

OMC79 commented on Woah Dave! May Become a Real NES Cartridge Rel...:

A terrible idea this is, in my opinion.
I bought the game on sale, and I'm glad I only spent less than a US$1. As far as retro-styled games are, this one is not as good as others such as bit.Trip or Meat Boy. I was hoping to get a game as frantic as those published by AtariAge for the 2600 but I was disappointed. It's not bad, I was expecting more. If it would have been released for the 2600 in its time, It would have had decent sales, but if it would on the NES lifetime, despite good reviews, it would have bombed. Gamers would have rather spend their money on Dark Void Zero or Retro City Rampage (if they actually were from that time). The NES was "rad" but this game is "far-out", the 2600 was "far-out".

OMC79 commented on Weirdness: This Interpretation of Super Smash ...:

I'm glad I've never heard about this YT channel. I hate those dumb conspiracy theories on pop culture stuff. Why can't you just enjoy those things for what they are and not for what they should be if they were real or if they were supposed to make any sense? It was this kind of stuff that ruined American silver age comic books. It's just entertainment, people. Did someone watch Cheers for the good laughs it made or to ponder if the bar was some kind of strange lab where Sam was creating mysterious brews that could only attract the same people at all times and didn't turn them drunk and kept Norm's liver in top condition? Come on! It's just a dream match, a dream match. But of course, we are not talking the same game here, they talk about Super Smash Bross, I've only played Super Smash Brothers (seriously, not even Japanese say bros).

OMC79 commented on Nintendo Download: 25th December (North America):

@chiefeagle02 SMB DX was great for the GBC because of the GB Printer and because you couldn't stick an NES cart or the FDS disk card on it. Without the printer and considering you can get the original NES and FDS games already, the only thing left are the challenges. IMO, if you really want it you should get the real thing instead or buy the already existing FC and FDS VC games (especially because they couldn't include the Worlds A through D of Lost Levels for some reason).

OMC79 commented on Nintendo Download: 25th December (North America):

@Porky Maybe they didn't take the day off but sure were in a hurry, they messed up bad with the Level-5 games for the 3DS. Those are just mouth-watering offers. Forget about Lego and what was the other?... Oh yeah, TMNT (Activision+Nickelodeon=Christmas dinner puking).
I hope they have a designated writer for next week, but like they insisted here, you gotta be sure to jump in the eShop.

OMC79 commented on Hands On: Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter:

Putting all the controller options (including Wii) in the balance with the GC adapter and consider the pros and cons, does actually a little convenience of button layout and nostalgia tilt the balance in favor of the adapter? Only a GC VC could really tilt it (and then again maybe not, the other controllers would do well too).

OMC79 commented on Hands On: Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter:

@Light
The adapter should be sold separately at a good price considering the very, very limited use it will have, but I bet it will be only be available as am expensive, limited edition pack-in. If it would be as cheap as $15-20, it will indeed be a saving-money option.
There's is one big problem with the original GC controllers, the rubber on the stick gets off very easily, as time goes by, it will be harder to find a working controller in good condition. The only option will be buying a new Smash-GC edition that will be expensive.

OMC79 commented on Hands On: Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter:

@Light
Some games require you to unplug the add-on controllers, a controller like the one on the petition would be as if it is hard-wired. It will break compatibility completely. Maybe that's why they didn't listen to that petition but opted for a worse choice instead.

OMC79 commented on Hands On: Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter:

@Light
The WiiU expects a Wii Remote or GamePad to work correctly and ensure 100% compatibility. A firmware update for such controller should let you get a pad-controlled pointer to navigate as with the other controllers. Not to mention that it will bring a similar problem as with the GC adapter as only games developed with this new type of controller in mind would work.

OMC79 commented on Hands On: Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter:

@Kirk
I think you are having little overreaction over colors. If you have a broken GC controller, I bet you could change some parts.
@Light
It will require a firmware update that wouldn't make mandatory a pointer device... For Nintendo that would be crazy talk (but is not crazy talk to make a one-game-only adapter). The PDP controller is the next best thing, IMO.

OMC79 commented on Hands On: Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter:

This gimmick will only be a collectible item in the future as it has little use. for the same GC Controller feeling, the PDP GC Style Classic Controller Pro is a better option and even has better designs (not to mention it has the -, + and Home buttons). On the bright side, if you need a replacement controller for your good ol' GC, this is the chance to get a brand new one (with a larger cable). I for one won't rush to the store to get this at launch date.

Inferior hardware but superior minds to back it up. The Vita is like Neanderthals, all strength but no brains, PS All-Stars is the proof of it, they had the chance and they blew it. I doubt Nintendo will have to shut down Sora and outsource the patching to someone else to finish the released game and make it playable.
If PSV is so powerful, why it can only handle novels? Even the GBA could have handled those.

OMC79 commented on Weirdness: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS ...:

I think it's more of a coincidence than a nod and a very vague one. Samus has to crouch before morphing. If she couldn't morph, she would have to crawl to move after crouching. It sounds to me like a logical way to describe the varia suit morphing ball ability. Besides, you have to be a real noob to call Samus, Metroid. When I read that stupid meme, all I could imagine was a "Metroid" trying to crawl with its claws. Bravo? For the game, but not for this nod, IF it is a nod.

OMC79 commented on Weirdness: This Footage Of The Famicom Disk Wr...:

This video is a fragment of the track I mentioned, after Luigi demonstrates the proper handling of the disk cards, they show another procedure at the disk writter. That's when they carry the NES cart, I thought it was the whole track, not this fragment. I wish they could have put the commercial where that still with the girl and the writter was taken from. Now, that will be vintage.
