Stargazer commented on Remake Request: ActRaiser:

Loved this game. I still love this game.

I enjoyed the sequel as well (so pretty) but I never beat it. It was too damn hard, and I missed the world-building aspects.



Stargazer commented on Nintendo Confirms "Super Indie Connection Sale...:

Giana is pretty cool. Be warned that although it's beautiful, the framerate isn't terribly smooth. Could definitely be more pretty in motion, a la Rayman.

And they haven't patched in the fact that there's no gamepad audio. Supposedly they were working on this last September but it never got done.



Stargazer commented on Talking Point: Is There A Future For The Wii U...:

The Wii took off because kids could go to their friends' house and use the Wii remote as a tennis racket or a baseball bat or a sword or a steering wheel. Then they would bug their parents to buy it for them.

The Gamepad holds no such allure.



Stargazer commented on Review: Unepic (Wii U eShop):

Really liking this game so far. The jumping bothered me at first (I like to be able to control the height of my jumps) but I got over it. Kinda gives it a Super Ghouls and Ghosts vibe.



Stargazer commented on Talking Point: The Wii U's 'Relevance' Is Abou...:

@ XFsWorld

On what planet is it cool to own a Vita? Sony's failures with Vita are similar to Nintendo's with the Wii U (poor name, poor advertising and marketing, caught in an awkward position where current efforts can't be easily ported to it, lack of compelling exclusives)



Stargazer commented on Review: Turok: Dinosaur Hunter (Nintendo 64):

Turok 2 was garbage compared to the first one. The first one was smooth (thanks to the fog, but still), played great, had inspired enemy and level design, and was fun to play. The sequel was a choppy mess.



Stargazer commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo E3 Survey:

Pretty much a failure in my eyes. The only thing I see on Wii U that interests me enough to want to buy the system is Super Mario 3D World, and the 3DS didn't have any E3 announcements that I cared about.



Stargazer commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo Virtual Boy:

I remember enjoying Galactic Pinball, Jack Bros., Nester's Funky Bowling, Mario Clash, Mario's Tennis, Panic Bomber , Red Alarm, Vertical Force, Teleroboxer, and Wario Land. Great games on a system with way too many issues, and I'd love to see them released on 3DS.

I even enjoyed Water World for a while, but it was more of a tech demo than a game. There was also a golf game that was fun.



Stargazer commented on XSEED Talks Wii Support And Why It Isn't Touch...:

I imported RGC2. It's an excellent game, but there are several games (the Detective games and the RPG spring to mind) that would be a lot of work to translate. They are passable with a translation guide but not fun to play, and it really dragged the experience down for me. The usual old-school platformers / shmups / racing games were awesome, though.
