taps commented on Features: Things We Miss About the 8-Bit Era:
for post # 71, according to wikipedia Spider-Man (vs Kingpin) and Home Alone were released in 1991 (the movie was released in November 1990.) Also, Mega Man X apparently came out early 1994.
Thanks for all the great game recommendations and I love the Tecmo Secret of the Stars reference, I thought my friend Dave was the only one in North America who played/beat that game, well done!

My thoughts exactly. I've been watching this guy troll since his FF IX review for EGM in 2000. In the dev community it seems like people either have to love or hate Nintendo games/hardware, I don't know why some of them can't just calm down and accept the games for what they are. He's more of an opinionated journalist than a dev IMO and seems to be taking his association with 'Q' as an opportunity to flame Ninty on tired 15 year old topics like cart space
When I read the headline I was expecting disappointing takes on the 3DS from the talented Tetsuya Mizuguchi. Instead, I got some knee-jerk from columnist-at-large and VF4 fan MIlky.
taps commented on Review: Klonoa (Wii):
Um, I guess I have to clarify because it wasn't clear enough the first time I said it. Your review of Kororinpa 2 was a disaster. Your criteria for reviewing games is pants. You clearly didn't play the game for very long because you failed to describe many of the game's additions and improvements. Instead you gave a non-passing score largely b/c it 'duzent play like teh furst won!!1' To quote user accc: "This review completely misses the mark... Once you unlock the customizable figure roller the controls barely feel any different than the original. it outclasses the original in almost every way." The comment about the faster marbles is quite accurate, once you spend some time with the game you get marbles that control as sensitively as the originals, the problem is Hudson attenuated some of the speedy stats for the first marbles in the game. Not to mention that most of the tracks after the first world or two are exponentially more challenging than the originals. I'm usually not one to cite capricious GAF, but you would be laughed off the message boards for this review. Maybe you should think of applying to Eurogamer, I hear a reviewer spot just opened up.
Favorable review for a great game, but after the Kororinpa disaster I don't know if I can trust this reviewer's opinion anymore.

"WELCOME TO THE FANTASY ZONE!"
In to say that I think the 1st Space Harrier is an all-time arcade classic, up there with the likes of Strider, Legendary Wings, and Donkey Kong (except that Donkey Kong is the king IMO.) I must respectfully disagree with the author's postulation that it is anything but. It had one of the first (if not THE first) full-motion arcade cabinets - which though it may seem gimmicky by today's standards was quite novel in the 80s and just cool. Also the "super scaling" (less refined mode 7) looked great, especially for 1985. I can go on and on, sure it can be hectic and frustrating but when you get on a roll it's poetic pixellated perfection. Tied with Shenmue for Yu's best.
"YOU'RE DOING GREAT!"
taps commented on Ten Game Boy Games You Should Be Playing:
Once again great piece by Corbie and some great user mentions. Lots of new discoveries for me personally on this little webpage. A couple of questions, has anybody played/have comments about the following games: Balloon Kid GB (1990), Bionic Commando GB (1992), Bionic Commando Elite Forces GBC (1999), or Wave Race GB (1992?) Any opinions are appreciated, all release dates North American.
taps commented on Reggie says "important" Wii titles coming:
hmm Wii Fit + sounds mighty tasty but my question is whether the upgrade will be modular like motion + or an entirely new unit that will render my current balance board useless for Fit+ titles.
