soma commented on Nintendo 64x64: F-Zero X:

GX was fun but in the end I preferred X music and control. If only GX had the shoulder attack.... it had nice graphics though.



soma commented on Nintendo 64x64: ISS 64:

I agree with everything that @TRON said, the ISSS series perfectly balanced sim and arcade, making them the best football games I've ever played. This was a great start, but ISSS98 and ISSS2000 were better games of course.



soma commented on Nintendo 64x64: Hybrid Heaven:

I loved this game, the story, cinematics and battle system. It had clunky control though, and the battle system would've been better with more special techniques or combos, I don't know. Still I loved it, one of my favorite N64 games.



soma commented on Review: Mega Man X3 (Wii U eShop / Super Ninte...:

The first time I played it I didn't like it the same as X or X2, the game has a bit more of exploration and less action from what I remember. But I ended up liking it a lot.

For me it deserves a 9.... at least 8.5



soma commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

One question, do the metallic versions are still fingerprint magnets? I still have a normal 3DS metallic black and I hate how my fingerprints are all over it.

I really like the new blue metallic color but I don't want to be suffering with it...



soma commented on Review: Mega Man 5 (Wii U eShop / NES):

I think it was too easy and that's what made it forgettable. You could beat the robot masters in your first try and even without the correct weapon. Also I noticed that enemies dropped tons of lives and energy.



soma commented on Review: Mega Man 4 (Wii U eShop / NES):

For me I like this one a bit more than Mega Man 2, and I liked the music in this game. But I'm surprised it was not mentioned the terrible sound effect when recovering energy. Just awful, specially when you reach a boss.



soma commented on Review: Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse (Wii ...:

This one is a lot more difficult than the first. I didn't find the first one too difficult except for that corridor where you fight Death.

I already have this on Wii, it'd be great to have it on 3DS for the save points, but I'm having some trouble playing Nes games on 3DS tiny buttons. I think I'll wait to get the WiiU, not only a better control but better price too. This is one of the games that having save points really helps.



soma commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

Ocarina of Time N64. I haven't played the 3DS version. Don't understand people saying it has aged horribly? I still play it from time to time and have more fun with it that Skyward Sword or Twilight Princess.

In fact not too long ago I played The Legend of Zelda Nes for the first time and even had more fun than those games I mentioned, which were good but with a LOT of boring parts.



soma commented on The Club Nintendo Rewards Are In For March:

Bonsai Barber is a great game! I can't believe a lot of people haven't played it. It received a lot of hype from IGN because it was made by one of the creators of Goldeneye.

Anyway, the game is simple but extremely charming, and with a lot of content. Trying to get everything is challenging. Can be played with a friend. The animation and facial expressions are very funny.

I repeat, a very simple but enjoyable game, one that you can play for 15-20 minutes a day and move on. I recommend it.



soma commented on NPD Data Shows More U.S. Gamers Switching to D...:

Well, first things first, Nintendo has to do a proper account system. I can understand on any other system, but with Nintendo is a huge risk. If my console is stolen or stops working then I lose all my games, so is understandable if most people want to download cheap or small games only.



soma commented on Soapbox: A Case For The Defence: Castlevania 64:

About this game, I really loved it and actually played it just a few weeks ago. I have finished it countless of times. Once you get used to the controls it's a very enjoyable game imo.

I still remember the first time I finished the game I was a bit disappointed with the Dracula's battle. Then my brother finished it too, but he got a new cinema where Malus was Dracula! I was like OMG what did you do, how did you get that! O_O
Great times lol



soma commented on Club Nintendo Rewards Updated for February:

Pictobits is great! I bought it time ago and is one of the best puzzles I've ever played, with great music and very challenging.
I'm tempted to buy Mario RPG but I don't know, I played it recently on emulator and I thought it hasn't aged that well. Chrono Trigger is better by far.



soma commented on Renegade Kid's New 3DS FPS Is Moon Chronicles:

hmm I don't know, I'd like to try a FPS game but I don't want to buy the Circle Pad Pro and I really don't like touch screen controls. And how much space would I need? I'd rather buy it physically.



soma commented on Review: Castlevania II: Simon's Quest (3DS eSh...:

Terrible review, this is a fantastic game. Yeah it can be confusing, there are a few things that will be impossible to figure out for yourself, but for other things there are hidden tips you can find destroying walls and floors around the world that are very helpful.
Figuring things out is part of the fun, and you can figure out most of the game except for one or two things, just check gamefaqs and problem solved. And now with the possibility to save your states it should be a LOT easier.



soma commented on Silent Hill: Shattered Memories Was "A Great O...:

I loved this game, one of my favorite Wii games or probably of all time. I really loved the atmosphere. Still need to get the Drunk Dad ending.
It's true that once you figured how the game works it loses the suspense, but still I really enjoyed and replayed it 4 times. Thankfully the game is not too long.
It's also true some people had problems with the controls. I didn't have any, but my brother who is a gamer (but isn't used to Wii controls) had a lot of trouble in the nightmare sections.



soma commented on Talking Point: Is The Castlevania Series Finis...:

Am I the only one that liked Mirror of Fate more than LoS? I thought Mirror of Fate was a very good game, except for the music which is disappointing compared to the classic Castlevania games. I started playing LoS recently, and of course it has better graphics and all, but I felt the gameplay was better in Mirror of Fate. And I also liked the story more.



soma commented on Hyrule Warriors Is Zelda Meets Dynasty Warrior...:

Amazing, Nintendo needs more games like this to add more variety to the console, with third parties refusing to colaborate maybe partnering them like this is the only option they have.

Game looks great and I'm more convinced to buy a WiiU now.



soma commented on The 3DS YouTube App Has Finally Gone Live:

lol, c'mon guys the quality is poor but isn't as bad as old phones, at least is better than my Nokia E5 =p
It could be better, sure, but is good enough if I need to find something quick. Only problem is it crashes a lot.



soma commented on Review: Mega Man 5 (3DS eShop / NES):

I recently felt the need to play again MM2 and MM3 and wanted to try something new so I downloaded 4 and 5. I found out there are a lot of mixed opinions of which was better of the two, but seems most people prefer 5 and some even hate 4.

Well, after playing both of them I'm on the side that prefers 4 over 5. For me MM4 is right there in quality with MM2, with better level designs and great music. The only two big flaws it has for me is the HORRIBLE! sound effect when filling your energy or the bosses energy (so slow and annoying) and the horrible music in Wily's castle. Other than that I thought it was a great game.

MM5 on the other hand felt so uninspired. It has some good ideas like the Gravity level or the bike in Waveman stage. Some musics are great too like ChargeMan, WaveMan, Wily's Castle or Protoman Castle, but others were pretty forgettable.

And the game is VERY easy, the easiest MM game I've played by far. I was beating bosses in my first or second try with the Megabuster, it wasn't even necessary to find their weakness which was disappointing as that's part of the fun. And I thought finding all letters would add to the exploration but they're very easy to get with the exception of Stoneman stage.

The game was clearly made for people not wanting a challenge, as you'll get a lot of lives in this game, I kid you not when I say that after defeating 2 robots I already had 8 lives. And the rest of the game is the same.

In short, MM5 is a good game, but pretty forgettable. If you don't want to be challenged and frustrated you can play this or MM2 in normal difficulty. But imo 2, 3 and 4 are a lot better and more fun to play.
