soma commented on Nintendo Download: 26th November (North America):

Yeah! Finally I'll have Konami Crazy Racers! Also interested in Metroid Fusion and 3D Outrun. Probably Child of Light or others from the WiiU eshop. There's also a discount of AVN and Crimson Shroud... my wallet is crying



soma commented on Nintendo of America Confirms Its Black Friday ...:

For WiiU I'm getting Metroid Fusion, and maybe some indie games like Child of Light or Don't Starve. Don't like downloading retail games.
Nothing for 3DS as I already have everthing I wanted from that list, except 1001 spikes, maybe.



soma commented on Poll: Nintendo's Free-to-Play Experiments - Ar...:

Never played Rumble but Shuffle is an excellent game. I've put like 300 hrs on it that I feel a bit guilty of not paying anything. It's very addictive although it becomes tiring to keep grinding for coins.

Badge Arcade is kinda fun, but I'm getting tired of the long loading times just to have one real try.

Rusty's Deal is fun too, but I wouldn't call it free to play, because there's no way to play it unless you pay for it =p



soma commented on The NES Joins The High Definition Era With Thi...:

Indeed I tested this last night to decide if I'll transfer my games or not, bought Castlevania III and Punch Out and made a comparison on Wii VC, WiiU VC and WiiU Wii mode.

The result, Wii and WiiU Wii mode looked almost the same to me, maybe a tiny bit brighter on the latter and a slightly color difference, but almost the same really.

On WiiU however, it definitely looked blurrier, less pixelated and darker. It wasn't as bad as I would imagine except that color fidelity is not the same. For example, because of the darker background the mermaid monsters in Castlevania or the candles looked more red, the zombie things a bit more purple instead of blue... things like that. And worse is I had to reset the game because the sound suddenly disappeared.

So in conclusion, Wii VC = WiiU Wii mode > Wii U VC



soma commented on Feature: Reflecting On Three Years With The Wi...:

Well, I just bought a WiiU and I hope I don't regret it with NX around the corner. I'm interested in some of it's games, specially some VC games that were never available on Wii.

However, I don't like the idea of transferring my Wii VC games for a couple of reasons: my Wii would become useless except to play GC games.... have to go to Wii mode to play them.... no GC controller support to play N64 games etc.

Still undecided to do the transfer or not, but other than that I really want to play some of its games specially the new Zelda next year.



soma commented on Wild Guns:

Just bought it..... fantastic game! Why I waited so long to get it!



soma commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (...:

Still a 10 for me. It´s not just nostalgia, I think the game has a perfect balance and a special charm compared to later Zeldas.
The game is not too short nor too long, it has a good difficulty, great music, nice art design, good story... it has everything!

I compare it to Wind Waker and although I liked it, WW was extremely easy and sailing was a bit boring. Twilight Princess had a very slooooww start, the art design was horrible, music forgettable and the game was just too long for it's own good, not to mention it was as easy as Wind Waker.

Skyward Sword had some good ideas, great graphics and some memorable music, but some design choices, weird characters and hand holding were for the worst to me.



soma commented on The Starship Damrey:

Just played this game, I really liked it. It's short but kept me very entertained to the end. I recommend it.



soma commented on Don't Seethe Too Much Over Xbox One Shovel Kni...:

If not for the limited continues I would consider Battletoads to be easier than Ninja Gaiden. With only 5 continues the game was near impossible, it took me a lot of time to get past level 9 and once I did I died in level 11. Lost all hope and never tried again

Still one of my favorite games ever, it was a lot of fun and it had a great level design for the time, is a lot more creative than many games this days.



soma commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

I have all those games except for Wario and Little King Story. One game I'd like to see is Dewy's Adventure, never played it but I'm very curious about it because I loved Elebits.

Also I'd like to see Endless Ocean, I was hoping for a WiiU version with HD graphics but nothing has been announced.



soma commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo 64:

The controller was near perfect if not that it wore out easily. I've never understood all the complaint about it... three hands? Alien hands? o_O

Want to play with the d-pad then put your left hand at the left, want to play with the control stick then put your left hand in the middle... What was the problem with it?



soma commented on Review: Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow (Wii U eSh...:

Never played Circle of the Moon, but between this one and Harmony of Dissonance, this is a LOT better in every aspect. However I can't understand how some people prefer Aria over Dawn of Sorrow, DoS was fantastic!



soma commented on Nintendo 64x64: ISS 98:


Lol! Yeah! Hi-res should be avoided, and I remember liking more the music in ISSS98, but other than that ISS2000 was a better game, with a few new moves (like jumping with the ball), new strategies and fixed some issues of 98, like easily scoring from far away.

All of them were great games and a lot of fun!



soma commented on Nintendo 64x64: ISS 98:

A bit of a waste of space putting this game if there's also ISS64... of course this game is better but ISS2000 is better than this one, so will it be included too?



soma commented on Nintendo 64x64: Jet Force Gemini:

Bought this game recently, never played it when it was released. I've only played it for a couple of hours but honestly I don't feel this game holds up very well today. Maybe it will get better later but at least in the beginning I'm not too impressed.



soma commented on Nintendo 64x64: Perfect Dark:

Incredible game, best FPS of all time!

The level of customization is mind blowing, I can't believe after all these years I haven't seen something in the same level. Rare was amazing back in the day.



soma commented on Review: Castlevania: Dracula X (Wii U eShop / ...:

Should I get this game if I already have Rondo of Blood? I remember playing the first level on emulator and liking it, I don't have problems with the controls.

And I don't remember Rondo being too difficult, except in the level where you fight 3 bosses or something. Is this one more difficult?



soma commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

There are 2 main reasons I haven't bought a WiiU yet... first I'm still waiting for an account system, second I don't want to transfer all my VC games. Playing N64 games with a GameCube controller is great, and I thought with this we would have that option...a shame. It's surprising Nintendo dropped the ball at things like this.



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
