sleepinglion commented on Report Suggests That June Could Be Crucial For...:

Expanding beyond gaming with "quality of life" products seems a bit silly when they seem spread too thin at Nintendo as-is. With one VC title shooting out weekly they appear to be understaffed already and have often claimed not to have the manpower to bust out tons of in-house titles per year. How about "quality of current system"?
Nintendo fans are happy to tell Nintendo what they'd love to see and hurl cash at. Nintendo doesn't listen. A new F-Zero, StarFox, Metroid...nah! Just shove a few of them into Nintendo Land. N64 and Gamecube titles on the VC? Nope, let's try GBA instead.
Regardless of who is calling the shots I wonder if it will really make much of a difference. The ONE thing I agree with Iwata on is to keep Nintendo away from smartphones. Meanwhile, the Nintendo theme park put on the "back burner" is something I would actually pay to go see. Hence, it's not being done.

A poll?! They're kidding, yes?
Finish up the NES lineup, add the GB titles in order and MAKE A NEW GAME.
It's not rocket science, Capcom. Stop treating Mega Man like an A-list franchise when you're dead set on NOT making a new installment.

sleepinglion commented on Nintendo Download: 27th March (North America):

@JaxonH Right on! The 3DS Sega 3D classics are AMAZINGLY well done. I hope other companies were taking notes. You're right, there were some very stellar titles this year. I tend to focus too much on the VC because I love the oldies I grew up with. I see Nintendo's VC releases on each system as a way to preserve them, keep them going, and pass them along to the next generation of gamers. If I have grandchildren, I don't want them experiencing Chrono Trigger as a rom on their (whatever replaces the smartphone someday). I even have modded SNES, Genesis and NES controllers with Wiimote connectivity for VC usage. Having grown up with these titles the tactile experience is surprisingly effective. The new VC release schedule shows promise, if for nothing else than there actually BEING a release schedule =)

I have a ROB but he's just about as useful now as he was then. Don't get me wrong, I really like his aesthetic and remember early posters with him on them fondly, but he was just too unresponsive and slow for me. I used to play Gyromite with just the blue and red button setup sans ROB.

sleepinglion commented on Capcom Is Aware That We All Want A New Mega Ma...:

I would for sure, even though I still own those discs =)
But I would want to see the MM 9 and 10 added as well as a port of the Mega Drive's 'Wily Wars', the 16-bit re-masters of MM 1, 2 and 3. I don't believe it ever came stateside.

sleepinglion commented on Month Of Kong: What Donkey Kong Country Means ...:

Great article!
As a kid in the 80s the original 'Donkey Kong' was one of my earliest video game memories. Heck, on the NES I even broke down and purchased DK3. Why?! Why?!
I'm glad to see the DKR saga made such a positive impact on you. I'm loving the new title.

sleepinglion commented on Review: Renegade (3DS eShop / NES):

Oh, Nintendo... please start caring about the Virtual Console service.
Even some polling data would be nice to see you ask for.
What are the top 50 or so classic titles Nintendo fans would like to see... because chances are a lot of these wouldn't even make the top 100.
Any company who thinks Urban Champion would make a better 3D Classics entry than 'The Legend of Zelda' seems a little out of touch with the consumers.

sleepinglion commented on Nintendo Download: 27th February (North America):

Wow... with so many online services being axed this would have been an optimal week to distract us with a better eShop selection. One VC game? Heck, the long-delayed SMB3 (promised by the end of last year) would have done the trick.

sleepinglion commented on Soapbox: Nintendo Soundtracks - Where Are They?:

Nintendo's support of soundtracks for sale is just sad...
it's one of the few times I turn to torrents, YouTube (with audio capture) or soundtrack forums. I'm not proud of this behavior, but seriously, in the US we get zero scores. The Super Mario 25th disc? A joke. It was super short and very limited in its song selections.

sleepinglion commented on Video: These UK and US Donkey Kong Country: Tr...:

Let's face it, the US Nintendo ad campaigns are always lackluster. I much prefer the Japanese counterparts. Sure, I can't understand much of what is being said but they always promote fun and game video clips over a family sitting on a couch looking goofy.

sleepinglion commented on Video: Nintendo Minute Catches Up With Two eSh...:

Retro City Rampage DX is a joy. Easily my favorite version of this title (I have it on PS3 and Wii as well).
I'm VERY hopeful an update is made to allow other platforms the 'zoom' mode present in the 3DS release. It makes it so much easier to get some of the visual gags.

sleepinglion commented on NES Remix 2 Will Bring Even More 8-Bit Favouri...:

Wow... there should totally be a discount for folks who bought RES Remix 1.
On the plus side, simply HAVING SMB3 and The Lost Levels in the release would seem to indicate that North America will see these released before this lands.

sleepinglion commented on Remake Request: ActRaiser:

I concur. This was one of my favorite SNES titles back in the 90s and is still one of my go-to's. The score is so rich... check out the orchestral version online (YouTube, torrents if you don't tell anyone), it's gorgeous. I've never played anything like it since and hope it finds new life on the Wii U VC.

sleepinglion commented on Nintendo Download: 6th February (North America):

RCR is a great title and definitely worth the ten dollars.
The VC needs a booster... but Ninja Gaiden is still a very solid game. I'd love to see them release the SNES Ninja Gaiden Trilogy but it's probably too good of a deal to offer it for 8 bucks.
This is why the recent news of DS titles making their way to the Wii U has me skeptical. They're barely maintaining the VC service as-is.

sleepinglion commented on Retro City Rampage: DX Hits The 3DS eShop This...:

I have this one on PS3 and Wii so I'm not quite sure I'll bite again...
but it really is a solid title. A lot of the charm for me comes from the references. It's heavily 80s and 90s pop culture with some more recent jokes dropped in as well. I liked it.
