Steve commented on River City Ransom:

I didn't know there were more in the series nor that there was a GBA version. I do know that this is an essential purchase. Even today, this game is highly enjoyable and can be played over and over again.



Steve commented on Cruis'n USA:

We, at least this time we don't get it 1.5 years later than the Americans but even before them.



Steve commented on Tetris:

As much as I love Tetris I don't really see how this is going to improve anything Tetris DS already offered.



Steve commented on Wii TV Guide channel available for Japanese users:

Accessing the info on my MacBook or pda would probably be much faster and easier. I would try it though but I seriously doubt it would be better than what is available currently, as that is pretty good already.



Steve commented on Commodore 64 coming to Virtual Console?:

Why would 500 be too much for a C64 game and not for a NES game? I'd say both are comparable. Now if it would be Atari 2600 than it would be something different but C64 is not worse than a NES.



Steve commented on EU VC Releases - 1st February - Adventures of ...:

It sucks to get only one game a week. I've been thinking about it though. Nintendo is going to run out of old games at some point. There will be a new console after the Wii. Nintendo can't expect us to buy all our old games again and they need something to sell us. Nobody is going to pay €5,- for Mario 1 again on the Wii 2 (especially considering a PsOne game costs the same and can be played on both PSP and PS3). The only thing they can do is start selling Cube games (like MS since they don't have any real classic games) and/or stretch releasing real classics as long as they can.



Steve commented on Japanese Virtual Console list - February 2008:

Not that interesting. Sure, Master System is cool to have and Black Belt is decent but not much more is worth it. At least Custom Robot looks interesting. Maybe wel'll get it here as well.



Steve commented on 1080 Snowboarding:

Great game, it's actually better than 1080 on the gamecube. I loved this game in '98 so it's a shame I won't be able to play it until late may since I'm abroad.



Steve commented on EU VC Release - 4th January - Harvest Moon:

Always complaints...

Why can people not just be happy about what's there? Remember that all games weren't released at the same time when they originally came out. When you bought a SNES at launch you had ti wait years for games like Harvest Moon and Chrono Trigger to be released. With VC it's much the same. In my opinion it's great that such an amount of games has been released already in just 1 year. Man, they already released all 3 DKC games!

Sure, they could have released some more N64 games. Where are our 3rd party games? Overall I'm pretty satisfied, there's more games I want than I can buy.

Remember that even "crappy" games can be a great retro experience for some people because they enjoyed the games a long time ago. One of my friends is crazy about Ice Hockey, which is obviously not the best VC game around. When I look at what I used to play and enjoy, there is some definate crap I enjoyed a lot.



Steve commented on Alien Soldier:

This is one of the best Megadrive games ever. Personally I like it even better than Gunstar Heroes. I once bought it used for about €11,- converted to current money, not knowing it was so good or rare. I played it to death, enjoying every minute of it. When I had to sell it made me €75,-
