retro_player_22 commented on Nintendo Life Weekly: Hi-Def NES Gaming, Repla...:

@ocarinaoftime Yeah but that console is crap, games get corrupted during normal gameplay, it doesn't support most homebrew and flash cartridge games, the updates for the system is stupid sometimes, they make Sonic 3 and Knuckles work with one firmware update and then make another one which takes that feature away and then had one again just to fix that and eventually ruin another. Because it had no RCA support, you can't play it on a CRT TV which a lot of light gun and accessories games required.

The thing doesn't support Kaillera or any sort of network play so you can't play retro online with any other players around the world compare to other emulator which you could. Also last but not least, the controller that came with the system sucks so much, it tends to lag, the stick is unreliable to use and the buttons are just too clicky to play with not to mention even though the thing allows support for original controllers, about 70% of my original controllers doesn't work with the system even though they work perfectly fine on my real systems. A shame and a big ripoff really.



retro_player_22 commented on Video: Did You Know Gaming? Covers Golden Sun:

@TomJ Everybody hated that game cuz the entire story of that game was basically a side-quest just to get a stupid feather to make a vehicle fly. It never explain how the f**k those black hole things are or where they are coming from. The game ends in a cliffhanger but no "to be continue" message meaning Camelot probably may not know how to end it or just trolling the fans so to get hype for a sequel. Dark Dawn also took away a lot of good things about the first two GS games, no Arena battle and no backtracking to previous locations. It's such a linear RPG and there's various locations within the map of the game which you can't get to which are only there to temp you for a sequel even more.



retro_player_22 commented on Video: Did You Know Gaming? Covers Golden Sun:

Finishing Dark Dawn and finding out it ends in a cliffhanger just had me drooling for another. Camelot needs to finish this, you can't just end a game in a cliffhanger and not continue, it's as guilty as ending Shenmue 2 and not making Shenmue 3 which Yu Suzuki is now paying the price for when doing such a thing. You can't temp us gamers with a cliffhanging story and not give us the end. C'mon Camelot, if it's money you need then do Kickstarter, make a 4th one already and release it for Wii U, NX, 3DS anything.



retro_player_22 commented on Video: Hands On With The Revo K101 Plus, The U...:

Meh, if it can't play original Game Boy and Game Boy Color cartridge then it's crap and crap like this can't be compare to the mighty GBA SP2 which could play all things Game Boy in beautiful backlit. Also why they added an X & Y buttons there when you can't even load and play Super NES roms or PlayStation titles accurately on the unit? I mention those two platforms cuz those two library make best use of the diamond layout.



retro_player_22 commented on Feature: The Twilight Princess HD Fan Project ...:

I honestly don't get why this game even needs a remake. If anything remake tougher games like The Adventures of Link, Metroid II, EarthBound Beginnings, or even Kid Icarus. All they basically do is taking every grim things about Twilight Princess and re-coloring them to make it look prettier. C'mon 3D remakes of older games would be amazing if any dev is up to the challenge.



retro_player_22 commented on Video: This Is What An All-3D Version Of Chron...:

@WarlockNem So many times? It's only available on 4 platforms really: Super NES, PlayStation, Nintendo DS, and mobile. A 3D remake would be great; however, I want the original team to remake it, not the fans. They usually tend to ruin things from the original so I don't want them to ruin this.



retro_player_22 commented on You Can Now Buy A Replacement Wii U GamePad On...:

@Dankykong It's obvious that Nintendo may offer that through a future firmware update. It did not work cuz Nintendo didn't implement it yet. You can't try a feature before Nintendo could confirm that it would work just like backward compatibility, you can't try it or make it works unless Nintendo confirmed it.



retro_player_22 commented on Live In The UK? You Could Find A Sega Mega Dri...:

@rjejr They could but you know Nintendo doesn't like making compilations of games they release. A lot of those Sony and Microsoft titles on compilation and digital media are from third party companies and those could be released with no prob. Rare Replay and the Sega Genesis Ultimate Collection are good compilation packages but both are from companies that are no longer are in competition in the gaming industry. Same thing with games from Capcom, Konami, SNK, etc. The only way Nintendo could release a retro collection like that is if they went third party and want to make quick cash otherwise what they are doing (releasing new titles and continue to slowly release classic digital games) now already benefits them.

The NES Remix titles were just marketing ploy in attempt to advertised their old games, they'll never offer a collection on disc with over 50 NES and Super NES games, instead they want you to buy those title individually at few dollar a pop. Also you mention "As far as I can tell Ntineod has never done retro hardware or game packages " doing what other companies already did was never Nintendo's thing, they want to be different, not the same as everyone else. I'm sure that at one point in Nintendo's history that they will make compilations of games or retro hardware but until they become like the rest, they aren't doing that as what they are doing now already benefit even if their current home console is failing.



retro_player_22 commented on Live In The UK? You Could Find A Sega Mega Dri...:

@CrazyOtto I recently bought one for $20 a few months ago. Thought it was okay, the Genesis games were good, the 40 other games are just junks and clones of license games. The wireless controllers are garbage, I basically threw them in the trash immediately after finding out that the signal sucks. Instead I just use my real Genesis controllers to play it. Of all the games I test on it only seven games doesn't work:

  • Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Knuckles
  • Greatest Heavyweights
  • Animaniacs
  • Super Street Fighter II
  • Virtua Racing
  • Technocop
  • Pier Solar


retro_player_22 commented on Live In The UK? You Could Find A Sega Mega Dri...:

@rjejr Nintendo doesn't do that because they are not a third party game company. They are still a first party game manufacturer and publisher and thus had to continue focus on the current gen rather than going back to the past. Had Nintendo do what Sega did then we would probably get emulation collection of their old craps rather then new stuffs on the 3DS and Wii U. Anyways if you just want retro games there's a whole bunch of illegal Chinese multi carts filled with NES and sometimes Super NES roms on there if you're lucky which would work with any real or clone consoles. Just don't expect them to work 100% as they are not of the same quality like Nintendo.



retro_player_22 commented on EA CFO Explains Why the Company Doesn't Make W...:

I don't play or buy EA games anymore because the last game I bought from them to install and play took forever to connect or hardly ever connect. Note to EA, stop turning your retail triple A titles into browser only games as not everyone had a stable internet connection. At this level you might as well make games for Facebook.



retro_player_22 commented on Final Fantasy's Cloud Is Set To Cause Some Str...:

@AlexSora89 I add what I know about Cloud for Nintendo system, you know anything more, you could add your two cents. Other than Cloud though I am still hoping for at least one of these character by next year:

  • Shantae
  • Takamaru (The Mysterious Murasame Castle)
  • Shovel Knight
  • Rayman
  • Isaac (Golden Sun)
  • Bomberman
  • Bayonetta
  • Travis Touchdown (No More Heroes)
  • Professor Layton
  • Erdrick (Dragon Quest)
  • Phoenix Wright (Ace Attorney)
  • Ryu Hayabusa (Ninja Gaiden)
  • Earthworm Jim
  • Zero (Mega Man X / Zero)
  • Klonoa
  • Crash Bandicoot
  • Spyro the Dragon
  • Goemon (Legend of the Mystical Ninja)
  • Simon Belmont (Castlevania)
  • Alucard (Casltevania)


retro_player_22 commented on Final Fantasy's Cloud Is Set To Cause Some Str...:

Well Cloud has been on Nintendo handhelds for a while:

Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories for GBA

Theatryhthm Final Fantasy for 3DS

Theatryhthm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call for 3DS

Final Fantasy Explorers for 3DS

I guess having him for Super Smash Bros. is a great addition. Besides Final Fantasy VII was suppose to be an N64 game in the first place, it just happens to end up on the PlayStation.



retro_player_22 commented on Rumour: Leading Japanese Game Company Kidnappe...:

Either it's Sega (maker of the Mark III) or NEC (maker of the PC Engine), two competitors against Nintendo (maker of the Famicom) in Japan. It couldn't be Microsoft, Microsoft never made the MSX, instead they had other companies made it for them.



retro_player_22 commented on Valhalla Game Studios is Being Sued Over a Tra...:

@Tasuki The funny part is that Mythicon trademark the Star Fox name over there in Europe but never released the game and the region (NA) that they did released the game for, they forgot to trademark the name for it.

@StarDust4Ever Did not know it was a crappy game until I play it myself. One of uncle used to own an Atari 2600 and Star Fox was one of those games. I play it thinking it may be the Nintendo version but simplified, boy was I wrong. That game was so terribly ear bleeding I had to mute my TV to even play it.

68 reasons how to improve Super Smash Bros. for Wii U says the guy who had never made a game in his lifetime.

@EngieBengie You had to realize there's limitation and cutting corners in a videogame, not everything is as simple to implement as it seem. You could ask for 10 changes to Super smash Bros. and only 3 out of the 10 could be possible.



retro_player_22 commented on Koei Tecmo is Planning Another Major Collabora...:

@duffmmann In Dead or Alive and all of the Ninja Gaiden games, his in-game name has always been label as Ryu Hayabusa or just Hayabusa, his first name Ryu was never label by itself even though it was mention in text and stuff and he is 95% suitable for Super Smash Bros. If Nintendo wants they could just label him as Hayabusa but had the announcer announced his full name as seen here:


Roy is common, yes. So is Ryu, if you ever went to Japan, over there the names Ryu and Ryo are very common, they are as common as what John, Matt, Joe, and Mike are to you western people.



retro_player_22 commented on Koei Tecmo is Planning Another Major Collabora...:

Tecmo Koei has been quite supportive of Nintendo lately (Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge, Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2, Pokemon Conquest, Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3, Fatal Frame V, Hyrule Warriors, etc.) so it would really make sense if Nintendo return the favor and include Ryu Hayabusa in Super Smash Bros.



retro_player_22 commented on Sonic The Hedgehog Titles Being Pulled From Th...:

If you didn't lived under a rock then chances are you probably already got at least a Sonic game or two in your collection already. These digital titles won't be missed, in fact I'm getting tired of Sonic games that I would be much happier if Sega retired the hedgehog for good.
