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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

@ikki5
Yes, I know I can transfer them, but then I wouldn't be able to play them on the Wii. With a proper account system there's no reason I couldn't have all my downloaded games on both systems. In short, I don't want to do the transfer thing if it's not necessary and I want to feel safe if something happens to my consoles.

Not what I was expecting, I hope they're testing the waters and still working on this. I have a lot of Wii VC games and I refuse to buy a WiiU until they make a proper account system. And if for some reason (Mario, DK, Zelda) I get a WiiU, I won't transfer any of my games to it, there's no point as I could easily play them on Wii.

I just hope it never gets stolen or stops working....

soma commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (Wii):

Finally finished it! Probably my favorite ending and final battle of all Zeldas!

Great game, with flaws and everything, but I still enjoyed the ride. Unlike Twilight Princess, I have the desire to play it all over again.

soma commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (Wii):

9/10 for me. The game has a lot of flaws like the story is a mess, a lot of backtracking and repetition (fighting the Imprisoned 3 times! Who was the genius that thought that was a good idea?), some musics are average, and a lot of unnecessary motion controls.

With that said, I still enjoyed it a lot, it was very fun to travel the world even if I didn't care much about the story or the characters. The colors looked vibrant unlike Twilight Princess and it had some awesome ideas in bosses or collecting bugs and stuff to improve your equipment. I really enjoyed that. And I loved the combat with Motion Plus too!

I'm near the end, still looking for the last piece of heart before going to the final battle. It took me a lot of time because sometimes I lost interest and stopped playing it for several days if not months. This also happened with Twilight Princess, both are very good games but with flaws and uninteresting moments that just extend the gameplay and make it more boring than it should.

My Ranking:
OoT: 10
ALthP: 9.8
WW: 9.8
SS: 9.0
MinishCap: 8.6
TP: 8.5

soma commented on Review: Super Castlevania IV (Wii U eShop / Su...:

As a kid I wasn't a huge fan of this game, the graphics were great and the intro music was amazing, but at the time I thought other musics were boring and I lost interest in it. The only Castlevania game I had played before was Simon's Quest, which I loved.

When it appeared on the Wii VC I gave it another try and boy was I wrong! This game is amazing, the music and controls are perfect and some special effects still hold very well today. The only negative thing for me are the boss battles, there's really no strategy involved in most of them, just whip as fast as you can.

Of course then I downloaded Rondo of Blood and although it improved some things (jump in stairs, back-flip, special attack) I enjoyed more Super Castlevania IV for the amazing atmosphere it has. Both are great games though, highly recommended.

soma commented on Mario & Luigi Premium Wii U Bundle Confirmed F...:

Now this is a bundle I'm tempted to buy. As much as I like Zelda, I already have Wind Waker for Gamecube and I don't like that the game is downloadable and not physical.

Now if only Nintendo fixed the account system......
