proffrink1986 commented on Wii U Stretch Goal Seemingly Teased for Bloods...:

@CharlyDunst "No one asked for this." Try telling that to the legion of Castlevania fans who have been waiting with bated breath for IGA to announce his own Kickstarter.
@GraveLordXD There will be a general physical release. However, it won't include the Kickstarter-exclusive slipcover or any of the Kickstarter-exclusive bonus content (maybe they'll release that as DLC later on...we shall see).
From the FAQ:
Will there be a physical release of the game after it comes out?
There will indeed be a physical release of the game in the future. However, the Kickstarter-exclusive box set is a celebration for fans willing to support IGA in his time of need, so the retail version of the game will not contain any of the Kickstarter-exclusive bonus content.
Why is the disc $60?
The Kickstarter Edition of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night won't be sold at retail. It comes in an exclusive slipcase and it's preloaded with backer-exclusive content—the Swordwhip, the only weapon powerful enough to unite Teams Sword and Whip, and a super-secret boss who you'll have to foil to earn it.

@Ryu_Niiyama Sure, that's a legitimate attitude, and certainly people should work within their budgets as well. I suppose it depends on how big a Castlevania fan you really are. If you're like me, and have played most of the games in the series, including the Igavanias on PS1/GBA/DS, and loved them, then supporting this is a no-brainer, since we know we can rely on IGA to produce a quality 2D side-scrolling game, something he's proven time and time again.

I just can't stand the hypocrites who are all, "I'll back it if there's a Wii U version," and now that it's in sight, they're like, "I'll wait until it comes out for Wii U and buy it," but there's no guarantee it WILL come out for their system of choice unless they support it now.

@Kogorn733 Yeah, it's kind of stupid that they didn't just come out and say it openly, I agree. But I mean, c'mon, how much more obvious does it have to be now? That's indisputably the top of the Wii U logo, and the $3M goal really isn't that far away.

@ikki5 Mhm, perhaps, but as others have said, you can always withdraw your pledge if it doesn't look like it's going to hit $3M (though personally I have every confidence that it will, especially if all the people who want a Wii U version end up backing it). And as BoilerBroJoe said, the -only- way you can guarantee a Wii U release is by showing your support now. So if you want a Wii U version, you know what you gotta do. You have your marching orders, soldier!
Full disclosure: I've backed it at the $300 level, which is WAAAAYYYY more than I've ever spent on any single piece of entertainment (gotta have that collector's box and signed Michiru Yamane soundtrack!). Been waiting YEARS for this, the true successor to Castlevania: SOTN!
Also, if it comes out on Wii U, I'm definitely getting the digital download of that version (and maybe the Xbox One version, too, eventually), in addition to my physical PS4 version.

Wow, you people are terrible. First, you guys are all like, "I WOULD have backed it, but there's no Wii U version. No Wii U=no buy. Wah wah wah..." (even though it was obvious that it was going to be a stretch goal from the beginning. From the FAQ: "What about Nintendo and/or handhelds?
Our budget left us with two options: Build the biggest, most beautiful game we can, or make sure it runs everywhere from the start. As things stand today, we can't afford to create the two separate versions of this game that would be necessary to make it run on every console. THAT SAID, WE'VE HEARD LEGENDS ABOUT A REMARKABLE TREASURE HIDDEN IN THE CASTLE BASEMENT...").
Now when it's all but confirmed that Wii U is a stretch goal, suddenly you're all like, "I'll wait until it comes out before giving it my support." Which is fair enough, but you all seemed gung-ho about backing it before if it included a Wii U release.
Also, those saying, "it shouldn't have been a stretch goal, it should have been included from the start" have completely forgotten that Wii U support was a stretch goal in the Mighty No. 9 campaign as well, and also that it costs money to bring the game to more platforms, especially to a third-place console like the Wii U.
Bunch of hypocrites.
P.S. Don't get the wrong impression, I love my Wii U. Doesn't change the fact that it's in third place.

proffrink1986 commented on Review: Prince of Persia (Wii Virtual Console ...:

@weirdproq I don't know about a sticker, but there is a little box in the upper left-hand corner of the box art that says it includes the 1992 version of the game. Unfortunately, it doesn't specify which version released in 1992 it is. However, it is the Mac OS version that is being emulated/ported. You can compare the following video of the Mac OS version to the video posted by Link79 of the version in Forgotten Sands.

The Mac OS versions of Prince of Persia 1 & 2 were also included in the Xbox version of Sands of Time as a bonus.

I'm adding my voice to the chorus of "instant buy" for Monster World IV. I don't even know if the game is any good or not (I'm assuming it is), but the fact that they're going through the effort of localizing it just warms the cockles of my retro heart! (Incidentally, I think this will be the first VC game to be localized; Sin & Punishment was supposedly based on a beta English translation).

@Omega I was also really disappointed that they didn't bother to translate DoReMi Fantasy: Milon's DokiDoki Adventure. It would have taken them, what, a day?

@Bahamut: Yes, as a matter of fact, it is different. Not to be snide or anything, but I think you could use a refresher on NOA's history of censorship; this article is as good as any: http://www.gamesradar.com/f/nintendo-banned-in-the-usa/a-20090722105344976067. Don't get me wrong, I love Nintendo, they're the greatest videogame company of all time, and I have spent countless hours in front of a Nintendo machine. But...that still doesn't change the fact that they are the Disney of the videogame world, especially NOA. NOJ, and even NOE, seem to be a bit more lax in terms of what they allow.
