RadioShadow commented on Feature: The Best Pro Wrestling Games That the...:

I destroyed a copy of "WrestleMania 2000" to fix my "Super Smash Bros." copy. The game would not save, even after swapping the batter. WrestleMania 2000 pretty much used the same rom data size and save type (CR0232 batter), and only cost me £5. Better than paying the £40 for a replacement copy of Super Smash Bros. on ebay.

RIP piece Wrestling game I don't care about! :P



RadioShadow commented on Video: UK Ambassadors Give Their Verdict On Th...:

My few cents:

  • 3D is much better (I even have it on in the car)
  • Bright screen (think GB Micro Quality)
  • Can use games that support "Pro Controller" (works excellent for "After Burner II")
  • Extra buttons & C-Stick work well enough, more games need to support it
  • Volume button is in a good position
  • A B X Y buttons colored to the SNES (PAL / JP)
  • Going to "the Home Menu" / "Miiverse" is a lot quicker
  • Battery has been improved
  • Changeable covers is a neat idea
  • Post screenshots on Miiverse using "Super Smash bros for 3DS"
  • Start / Select button in same positon as DS Lite, much better


RadioShadow commented on Hundreds of Limited Edition Majora's Mask New ...:

Ebay should really ban people who do this. They clearly don't have the device, so they should not be selling it.

At least with the European version, they waited two days before putting it up on websites / allow pre-orders from shop. So my brother was able to get one.



RadioShadow commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

It's a neat idea, especially when games like "Metroid Prime Trilogy" go for stupid amounts.

Shame I have most of those games, although I will download the "Kirby Wii" game. Just wish it was "Super Mario Galaxy", as I have the second one. :(



RadioShadow commented on New Study Finds No Connection Between Video Ga...:

I was watching the "Video Games: The Movie" document and on the topic about 'video games cause violence', they basically said violence is human nature. Look at Hitler as one example, he killed all those Jews and he didn't play "Call of Duty" (video game didn't even exist then).

Point is, other stuff influence violence, but it is about controlling your actions. Playing a violence game won't suddenly make me go and grab a gun an repeat the same action as I did in the game.



RadioShadow commented on The Console Wars Live On As Night Trap Remake ...:

While Nintendo where a bit 'evil' back in the day, like the fact if you made a game for Nintendo's system, it could not be ported to another system. Thanks to a court-ruling, that rule does not exist.

Plus at the time of release, the ESRB did not exist, and Night Trap (yes, a violent game, more like a terrible horrible movie <_<) and Mortal Kombat where the reasons the ESRB system came about.

Nowadays, there are T & M rated games on Nintendo consoles, so I don't think Nintendo would have any problem with this being released on the Wii U.



RadioShadow commented on Vblank Entertainment Provides Sales Threshold ...:

I hate to admit it, but the PS3 and Xbox 360 are way more popular, and most people would go and download that version. Plus you get to option of playing in HDMI (720p) instead of Component (480p). Leaving the WiiWare version to be the least popular version. So it's not surprising it isn't doing well.

I did buy the 3DS version however, so no point in downloading the WiiWare version.



RadioShadow commented on Matters of Import: Prepare To Die In Fire Embl...:

If it wasn't for Advance Wars, Fire Emblem may not have recived any English translations. Just look at this quote from edge-online with an interview with AW's director, Kentaro Nishimura:

For all these efforts to make Advance Wars’ appeal as broad as possible, there were still no plans to release the game outside Japan, just as the previous games in the series had never seen an overseas release.

“When I joined Nintendo," says Nishimura, “I was told that these kinds of games would never be successful abroad, because they were turn-based games, and turn-based games weren’t appreciated outside Japan. But we decided it was because these kind of games were too complicated. People are used to action games and shooting games, and in those all you have to do is press the A button and the B button and you’ll soon understand how to play.

But for SRPGs, you’ve got to know the rules before you start. So, with Advance Wars, even though there wasn’t a plan to release it outside Japan, we made it really easy to play. We put a really good tutorial in, so people didn’t need to read the manual. And when the US marketing people played it they came to us and said: ‘But this is great! Why can’t we sell it over here?’

And it seems that Advance Wars’ success has shifted Nintendo’s attitude over western tastes." Nishimura, who also worked as director on Fire Emblem, makes it clear that game would never have been released in the west had AW not paved the way."



RadioShadow commented on Hacking Group Claims To Have Discovered Wii U ...:

Because of the Wii HomeBrew Channel, I was able to recover my GameCube save files from my corrupted GameCube memory Card. Nintendo would have done bugger all!

The only thing I would like to see is the region lock stuff removed.

Actually, with the HomeBrew Channel installed on the Wii U V mode, you can play original US / JP game on it. Another point to them!
