starcrunch061 commented on Review: Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (NES):

I always find it strange that people think this game is so hard. I actually think that, without guides, the original is harder (grumble, grumble - LMAO). Combat can be trying, but it's never overly difficult, with the sole exception being the birds in the Great Palace.

This is a great game. I can respect that people enjoy the different style of the other games, but it seems strange to say that this game is bad, because those games are good. I actually found the front view refreshing in the day, and not bad today.



starcrunch061 commented on Feature: 20 Years of the Super NES:

Terranigma is great, but it's no Final Fantasy VI. I respect trying to find deep cuts, but FFVI is arguably the best game in the franchise (and in my opinion, it's the best game ever made).



starcrunch061 commented on GameCube to See New Downloadable Life on Wii U:

It's weird that you could download games, but the system wouldn't be backward compatible. Obviously, there is different technology, but for PS3, the same technology that allows you to download PS1 games also allows you to play them on the system.

I do hope it's true, though. The GC was easily the best gaming machine of last generation - it just didn't get enough support. Pikmin 2, Eternal Darkness, Wind Waker, SSB: Melee...great stuff.



starcrunch061 commented on Nintendo Download: 21st February 2011 (North A...:

Cozy Fire? Man, WiiWare really scrapes the dregs for that one.

I'm pumped about Faxanadu (I'm not sure why people think Zelda II isn't thought well of - while some people might not like it when compared to Zelda, it's still a solid game). I played this game so many times when I was a kid.



starcrunch061 commented on If You Want Virtual Boy Games on 3DS, Speak Up:

I can't understand why so many people are vehemently saying "NO!". I would surmise they've never actually played the Virtual Boy, and only "remember" it because they read about it on some "Worst Things EVAH!" list.

As one who did play (and own) the virtual boy, I wouldn't mind seeing some of the games make it to DLC. Yes, I would also like to see GBA games, but there's no reason we can't have both.



starcrunch061 commented on Review: The Tales of Bearsworth Manor: Chaotic...:


I guess it's just generational differences. I vastly prefer the hard copy of the disc to the download games I can get, for a variety of reasons (the least of these being that I can sell back a hard copy of the game, as I actually have the rights to the object, and not merely its content).

One last thing: yes, the game is 1/6th of what I would pay at the store, but no one is going to confuse any downloaded game with, say, "Uncharted 2," "Mass Effect 2," or "Mario Galaxy 2".

But, different strokes for different folks. I don't believe that game companies are getting "screwed over" on DLC, but I'm not a fan of DLC in general, so naturally I'd see the worst here.



starcrunch061 commented on Review: Super Castlevania IV (SNES):

Bloodlines? Bloodlines is crap compared to this game.

This is the best Castlevania title ever made. "Symphony of the Night" doesn't really count, since it was really a Metroid game posing as a Castlevania game.



starcrunch061 commented on Phantasy Star:


Yep. The Sonic Ultimate Collection is pretty much the reason I'll never download Sega games to my VC, as I got them all for a fraction of the cost.



starcrunch061 commented on Nintendo Rep: Virtual Console Being Toned Down:

I have no doubt that Nintendo is doing this - if the VC was a big money-maker, they would release more games for it.

That being said, I agree with the article. Nintendo has done little to advertise the VC, so it's no surprise that people aren't lining up to purchase games. I've never really liked the shop channel site itself - it is pretty painful to browse systems for titles in and of itself.

But anyway, if that's how it goes, then that's how it goes. It was nice while it lasted, I guess.
