shinobiman commented on Review: Rival Turf! (Virtual Console / Super N...:

I loved this game when I was a kid. I had the Japanese version (Rushing Beat) and it's actually much better than the US version. The box art wasn't horrendous, and the graphics were left unaltered (the US release removed a good portion of the foreground visuals and level graphics to save on memory). Also missing from the US version was the ability to knee your enemies in the groin, causing them to wince in pain. As a 6 year old who often played this game with a friend, this was a priceless move that added plenty of laughs.

Well written and well said. I totally agree with you Damo. I do wish the service was a little better organized. The way they have it now (just downloading games to the Wii dashboard) without and organization by year, publisher, etc. is just plain annoying.



shinobiman commented on Bonk 2: Bonk's Revenge:

So many memories of playing this game at my friends house. You see, he had a TG16, while I had, well, everything else pretty much. I was always fascinated by this game and system because it was the only one I didn't have. Platforming at it's best.

Great game. Zelda in a tropical / astronomy laced setting. AWESOME!!!



shinobiman commented on US VC Releases - 25th February - Kirby 64:

Psychosis looks like a quirky shooter. Reminds me of a cross between Bio-Hazard Battle (GEN) and R-Type (SNES). You can't go wrong with Kirby though. Great game and welcome addition to N64 cannon.



shinobiman commented on Fantasy Zone:

One of my favorite SMS games. The music and colorful graphics just suck you in. Not to mention the "Defender" style gameplay. It's a must have people!



shinobiman commented on Adventures of Lolo:

I remember my cousins turning me onto this game back in the day. They were obsessed with LOLO. I never was much of a puzzle gamer, casual at best, but I always enjoyed this game for it's simplicity and characters.
