Tasuki commented on Talking Point: Amazon Fire TV is an Early Warn...:

I will admit this have piqued my interest but the fact that it doesn't have WWE Network is the deal breaker for me. I might get one once the game line up is a bit better but we will see.

Also I can agree with the statements about OUYA. The only reason one would buy one is well it can't be discussed here.



Tasuki commented on Feature: The Castlevania That Konami Doesn't W...:

@Mask0Gears: To you maybe. You have to look at the majority of people who are buying these games and these are kids that grew up during the PS/Xbox/Gamecube/Dreamcast gen, they have different standards then those who grew up during the NES era. Heck I am sure that many of them that played LoS were introduced to the Castlevania series through Symphony of the Night and other Metroidvanias. At that time God of War was pretty big, so yeah it's not surprising that LoS series is a success.



Tasuki commented on Wii Classic Controllers No Longer Being Manufa...:

Honestly this is no big deal, just cause they aren't making them doesn't mean you wont be able to get one heck there is online and also used stores like Gamestop or other Retro game stores. Heck I was in a Retro game store yesterday and they had a bunch of N64 controllers for sale, along with Sega Genesis and even a few NES ones.

As for the controller itself I prefer the pro model the original isn't bad but the pro is better. I have 2 regular CC and 2 of the pro gold ones that came with GoldenEye.



Tasuki commented on Review: Super Dodge Ball (Wii U eShop / NES):

One of my favorite NES sports games. It's funny how this game and River City Ransom got VC releases but Nintendo World Cup never has. Still though the amount of Kunio games we have compared to Japan is a joke.



Tasuki commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

Since this is Wrestlemania weekend its going to be hard for me to find time to play games this weekend, but if I do find the time I am going to be playing Diablo III on the PC, I really got hooked into this game since the last patch. Also if I find time I will be checking out Mercenary Kings on the PS4



Tasuki commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Saturn:

Ah Saturn the nail that was put into Sega's coffin console wise. I honestly believe that if Sega didn't screw over the stores, and developers with the who launch date of the Saturn the Dreamcast would have brought Sega back. AH well we live and learn.

I honestly didn't play much of the Saturn, I rented one but honestly wasn't impressed with it like I was the Playstation.



Tasuki commented on How One Man Is Giving Sonic Fans The Game They...:

It's sad when these fan made games gives players what they want and the companies that own the IP don't.

I might look into this later but on that note can you use a controller on this? That's the one thing that bugs me with fan made games on the PC no controller support and I can't play games like Sonic or Mega Man with a keyboard.



Tasuki commented on Super Metroid is 20 Years Old Today:

I just discovered this game recently when they had it on sale for $.30 on the Wii U VC. Best 30 cents I ever spent. While I did try this game on the SNES back when I was a kid I just couldn't get into it then. I guess the whole open map thing overwhelmed me. I decided to try it again when it was on sale cause the Metroidvania style is one of my favorite game styles so I figure I might as well try the first, that and I had to see what all the hype was about.

One of the best games ever. Happy Birthday Super Metroid.



Tasuki commented on Ex-Castlevania Chief Koji Igarashi Is Grateful...:

Let's not forget the was one Castlevania Metroidvania clone DSiware called Soul of Darkness and that didn't use any Castlevania references so if they can do it I am sure that IGA can.

Also keep in mind it doesn't have to involve Dracula or a Gothic setting to be a great Metroidvania just look at the new Strider.



Tasuki commented on Walmart Announces Foray Into Pre-Owned Games:

I wont be doing this. For one thing I hate Walmart as much as I do Gamestop plus I have a bunch of other places in my town to go to trade in games that's neither of them. Still for people who only have these two places in their town it's nice to have the option of where to go.



Tasuki commented on Nintendo Force Magazine Secures Second Year Wi...:

As much as I would enjoy this is hard to justify paying for the news and reviews that one would get in a magazine when they could find all that out for free on the net. Also by the time you get the magazine the news would be old due to the net.

As great as magazines where back in the days especially game magazines, in this day and age they are just obsolete.



Tasuki commented on Capcom Is Aware That We All Want A New Mega Ma...:

As long as they dont switch the jump and fire button like they did on the GC version I would love it. I still have my GC copy of Mega Man AC but sadly I sold off my Mega Man X Collection disc years ago and I am regretting it. Having a copy of Mega Man AC on Gamecube is one of the main reasons I have been wanting to find a working Gamecube.
