room88 commented on Out Now: History of Nintendo: Volume 2 - Game ...:

I got the first book.. took about 4 weeks to arrive. But that was expected since after all it's coming from Europe.

That being said, I'd like this new book but without free shipping it comes out to over $51.. Sorry but I have to balk at that price.



room88 commented on Review: Game & Watch Donkey Kong Jr. (DSiWare):

First of all I like and dislike this title.

I dislike it because it's obvious Nintendo has decided to nickel and dime us for these small recreations rather than giving us a FULL BLOWN "Game & Watch Gallery 5"!. And since the DS is the direct descendent of the dual screen G&W's that can do all the games justice (rather than the squished dual-screens of the past collections) this leaves me very disheartened.

On the other hand, I love G&W Donkey Kong Jr.! It has some of the best gameplay of all the G&W's and is challenging enough to this day (although I have mastered it plenty for the past 20 years). Anyway, this conversion has been done great. I just wish they could give you the option to turn off the "ghosts" of the unlit LCD sprites. I don't know about you but in my Game and Watches you have a real hard time seeing the unlit sprites so the fact that they made them visible is a little untrue. Also I'd like to see them continue the tradition of making updated versions of the game.. a "remix" or have you. As is, we only get the direct port in this one. Oh well. Come on Nintendo.. GAME AND WATCH GALLERY 5 PLEASE.
