retro_player_22 commented on The Legend of Zelda for Wii U Gets Its 2016 Re...:

@TheLastLugia It was mention as getting a TBC (to-be-cancel) in Q2 so of course it was going to get canned at one point. I only comment on why it got that in the first place when a game nobody want like Federation Force did not. If originally the Legend of Zelda for Wii U was going to get canned off Wii U to NX instead, then Nintendo seriously need to expand their team of developers or expand their console lifespan a little longer as development for one game took longer now to developed than the actual generation itself. The Wii last gen was lucky enough it got an original Zelda game in Skyward Sword, for this gen it looks like the Wii U original Zelda game is barely just hanging on a thread.



retro_player_22 commented on Platinum Games Celebrates its Ten Year Anniver...:

Whether by their original name as Clover Studio (Viewtiful Joe, Okami, God Hand) or by their new name Platinum Games, these developers are what makes gaming awesome today. Hopefully a Bayonetta 3 or a Madworld 2 is in their future. I'm also looking forward to their awesome new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 as well.



retro_player_22 commented on Nintendo Download: 28th January (Europe):

Nice that Final Fantasy Tactics Advance is coming to VC but still I probably won't download it as I already had the cartridge version and the original and love the original more. Just not a fan of the restricted law system in the game.



retro_player_22 commented on Rumour: Intelligent Systems Is Working On New ...:

@CB85 I hope it stays a Wii U exclusives as I feel the NX could had its own original game instead. Besides if NX is backwards compatible, it could still play this one anyways so that's a win-win on both. As cool as having the game on both systems, I rather steer NX away from ever having any Wii U port. To me, it was a mistake to have Twilight Princess ported to the Wii when the original could already be played on the Wii.



retro_player_22 commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Game Gear:

Aw the Game Gear, a cool little handheld that was created with no purpose other than to mock Nintendo's Game Boy. I would had bought one then had it not for the expensive price tag, low battery life, and a weak library of decent titles.



retro_player_22 commented on SEGA 3D Classics Collection is Heading to Reta...:

Good but I'll wait for the second 3D Classic Collection as that one may have better offerings like these:

  • Streets of Rage
  • Streets of Rage 2
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2
  • Outrun
  • Gunstar Heroes
  • After Burner II
  • Shinobi 3
  • Space Harrier
  • Super Hang-On
  • Ecco the Dolphin


retro_player_22 commented on Video: Check Out Super Smash Bros. Melee Runni...:

@martinskrtel37 I know but the game plays fine in 480p, all 1080p does is smoothen the polygons. Also running Melee in 60fps is awful as the camera kept jumping back and forth without delay. In the original where it runs in 30fps, at least the camera is a little bit steady making it more easier to follow your character and is much enjoyable to play.



retro_player_22 commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo Super Scope:

I still had this for my Super NES, one of the best light and innovative light gun ever. Only thing I wish was if Nintendo released a wired one, I don't mind as I also had extension cables for SNES so getting one without having to rely on batteries would be a blessing.



retro_player_22 commented on Video: Everything We Know About Nintendo NX, S...:

Here's what I know about the NX:

  • It's going to be something made by Nintendo.
  • It's not be part of the Wii brand.
  • There's going to be a new Super Mario, Super Smash Bros., Legend of Zelda, and Mario Kart game plan for it sometime around its lifespan. It better or else it sucks.
  • It will not be handle by Satoru Iwata cuz you know the man is gone now.
  • Third parties will find excuses not to develop games for it after the first one or two year of supporting the system.
  • It won't support VR technologies.

What I don't know about the NX:

  • May not be backwards compatible with the Wii and Wii U library.
  • May not support physical media.
  • May strongly support DLC and micro transactions.
  • Games for Virtual Console will reset again and you will have to download everything again.
  • It will probably had its own digital store different from Wii U's eShop or Wii's Shop Channel.
  • May have a controller that is a fusion between the Wii U Game Pad and a handheld.
  • May be able to run games at 60fps in 1080p.
  • May have a new name but knowing Nintendo the name will probably be weird or silly like all their previous console's name.
  • May cost as much as a PS4 maybe.
  • May probably launch sometime in 2017, it won't be 2016 though as they didn't show anything about it in 2015. If it does get a 2016 launch then chances are it'll be a rush piece of console and I probably won't be buying it on day one.


retro_player_22 commented on Oculus Founder Palmer Luckey Believes Virtual ...:

Palmer Luckey you were only 3-year old when the Virtual Boy came out so stop hating. Us true retro gamer knows what it's like to own and actually play the device and we know that had technology is more affordable back then and Nintendo fully embrace VR, the Virtual Boy would had been a success and we probably won't even need the darn Oculus Ripoff.



retro_player_22 commented on How Star Wars Helped Nintendo Defeat One Of Se...:

Wow, imagine if id Software patented 1st person shooter and Squaresoft patented the turn-base battle, all other games would be down the gutter including GoldenEye 007, Perfect Dark, Medal of Honor, Breath of Fire, Lufia, Lunar series and EarthBound.
