WaveBoy commented on Rumour: Unconfirmed Smash Bros. Footage Suppos...:

Knocking out Lucus, Wolf and Snake makes sense. However, there's still no confirmation for the Ice Climbers. They are the only Brawl-newcomer that hasn't made it in yet. I personally don't care, but i'm sure there are quite a number of people who like to play as them.



WaveBoy commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Assets Spotted:


Because Infamous and Uncharted were never on a Nintendo System to begin with....

Resident Evil: 'revelations' originally debuted on the 'nintendo' 3DS. Lets not forget.....Resident Evil 4, RE2(N64), Remake, Zero, RE4: Wii Edition, RE: Umbrella Chronicles, RE: Darkside Chronicles, RE: Gaiden(GB), RE DS, the playstation ports and RE: Revelations: U Edition.

Yup, it's fair to say that capcom has released plenty of resident evil games on Nintendo platforms, which gives Thomas every reason to whine, moan and complain. :P

We're not even getting Remake HD for crying out loud. I'd imagine that could also be done on the Wii U, what, with the updated character models(ect)



WaveBoy commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Assets Spotted:

I'm with ya dude. Once you experience pointer controls for aiming(be it the first or 3rd person genre ect ect) you CANNOT go back to a clunky, robotic, stiff, unimmersive and unintuitive thumb stick, at least i can't. If by some miracle the Wii U gets Revelations 2 it will be highly unlikely that it will get pointer support. Capcom is a failure these days at seeing the potential of motion controls.

I'm passing on Revelations for the Wii U since there's no pointer support. I already finished it on the 3DS a year prior to that anyways.



WaveBoy commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Assets Spotted:

Revelations was a total mixed bag, but...The more Resident Evil, the butter! i mean better. :* It's funny though, Capcom always talks about rebooting the franchise but they just can't seem to do it. :P

Also, if it's not coming to the Wii U, then no it's no dice for this little Mullet 'n mega'd Puppeteer. The direction as of late for RE as a whole, in regards to 5, Revelations and 6 has been sour. Normally i'd be really excited, i mean c'mon...It's a NEW resident evil game. But the fact that i couldn't even bare to play more than 30 minutes of RE6 shows that my lust for the series that was once obsessive has been decaying like a wet zombie sandwich.

I want survival horror, take the series back to it's roots. Enough with this mindless puzzle lacking, ammo riddled action packed interactive movie gun blasting bogus bananza.



WaveBoy commented on The Sega Genesis is Now 25 Years Old:

25 years old and still in the shadow of the SNES.
Genesis still had the greatest ghostbusters game period. ;)

I got the genny a few months after it's release, and i deeply regret it. Because it took another year for me to get my own SNES, which was far and away more magical than the pile of genesis games i went toe to toe with.

Greatest genny memories must of been Rocket Knight Adventures, Streets of Rage, Splatterhouse 2, Toe Jam & Earl, Ghostbusters and few or so other, but none of them can compare to nintendo, capcom and konami's heavy hitters on the SNES imo.



WaveBoy commented on Beautiful Limited Edition Super Smash Bros. 3D...:

There still hasn't been a new 3DS design that has topped the regular 'Aqua Blue' imo, that thing looks like it popped out of a shimmering mystical ocean summoned by none other than Ariel the little mermaid.

The 80's-ish sparkly cake layered aqua blue design is too pretty for words. When i got my 3DS XL blue, i was like....WTF is this plastic hot mess of boring clam cowabunga sauce. It looks like it belongs in the DSi family.



WaveBoy commented on Feature: Hyrule Warriors - Everything We Know ...:

This. I don't care if it has Zelda Asthetics, this game looks like a total mindless affair. I don't have one ounce of excitement for this at all. Underneath it all is Samurai Warriors after all, which would have zero chance of being successful in the west. But now it's going to be a smash hit because of the new LOZ 'skin'. These ZeldaLings just can't help themselves.

What's next? Is nintendog's going to get a sequel called "Gannon babies" edition.

Hmm, i'll admit i don't go ape sh** whenever a new LOZ game is revealed. The series just doesn't excite me the same way Mario and Mega Man do. ;)



WaveBoy commented on Shin'en Multimedia to Finally Show Off Fast Ra...:

Get ready for the ultimate Boot Leg of F-Zero. ;)
I'm sure it will look and play nice and all, but if FAST is anything to go by(of course it is!) than i'm expecting another semi-lifeless experience. I wish Shinen would get more creative rather than just sticking with a generic idea/look and making it as polished as possible. How's about creating a slew of funky characters to go with each vehicle?



WaveBoy commented on The Legend of Zelda Monopoly Dated for 15th Se...:

True, but it took longer for the AVGN to plummet. Talking classics got stale in a little over a year. The guy started promoting all of this crap, merchandise and creating all of these unfunny characters, trying to get his next big break in the commercial/movie biz. he over did it. heck he's still over doing it. His keith Appicary character isn't even that funny anymore...he's going way too over the top with it now. :P

As for the AVGN, he was the b-bomb during 06-07' he lost his mojo after the amazing Bible games episode. He was at his peak imo with the friday the 13th halloween special. that was easily his all time greatest Nerd vid. These days, he doesn't feel like he's trying that much anymore and he's lost his youthful nerdy look which made him funnier...Now he just looks like some tired boring dude in his mid 30's. :P



WaveBoy commented on The Legend of Zelda Monopoly Dated for 15th Se...:


He's got more talent in funny goop in his bones than the AVGN, but ultimately he lacks charm, he's not interesting at all when he's not in character and his newer episodes are weak. :P He started off strong, but eh. I could watch anything with James rolfe in it.



WaveBoy commented on The Legend of Zelda Monopoly Dated for 15th Se...:

These ZeldaLings most definitely will. I hate Monopoly more than the 2000's no matter what game-related skin it may have. ;) I'd rather play 'Clue' with a Dick Tracey or a mega man skin. Who killed Heat man? Was it in the Furnace? With the Bubble Lead?



WaveBoy commented on Feature: Ten Must Play Titles on the Game Boy:

Super Mario Land 2 just sucks....The stage design and controls were balls then and they're balls now. I'd personally swap it for Wario Land...The shining moment of SML2 was easily wario's castle. The only area with decent stage design structure that had rythem and depth.....everything else? SuperMarioSnoreLand. It had great presentation, fun tunes, wonderful quirky worlds & enemies, but it just played poorly...

Oh and Super C was amazing, easily one the best contra's. ;) Haven't played Kid Dracula, i'll definitely have to check it out.



WaveBoy commented on One Classic Mega Man Game Is Coming to Wii U E...:

X3 and 7 are the missing pieces left for little old Muppet mullet moizy. :*
I haven't played X7 and X8, nor do i want to. I like to think as the X series ending with X5....That was Inafune's intention, but those doinks at capcom went on with X6 without him and it shows....

As for the Zero series, still need to play 2-4!



WaveBoy commented on The Game Boy is 25 Years Old in North America:

Super Mario Land, Tetris and TMNT: Fall of the Footclan were the 3 vintage pixel stars at my house. I'll admit though, i could never really adjust to the puke monochrome green motion smearing visuals. :P i didn't give it that much attention Vs my NES. I can appreciate it, but the DS(Lite) shall forever be my favorite hand held, for now tee hee.

Anyways, enjoy these awesome nostalgiac 'n radical GB commercials. I can't count how many times i used to see Super Mario Land's grace my good ol' wood panel Tube TV.



WaveBoy commented on Video: The 10 Best Zelda Games As Selected By You:

Some people just can't take Zelda II's challenge, nor can they accept the fact that it's a massive departure from the original(As was SMB2). Yet I adore it's fantastic kinetic 'pokey' sword play including the iconic Downwards Thrust, the magical soundtrack(I actually prefer the overworld theme over the originals), just everything...Including this awesome commercial. ;)

Although the random encounters(But they were Visable) were a bit irritating here and there. But eh, there's no such thing is a perfect game(Ok, there is, and it's Super Mario Bros 2. ;) ) so i'll except & embrace this annoying nuisance with open arms hehe.

Zelda II and SMB2 are both fine examples of when developers weren't afraid to be ballsy, risky and experimental....Back when retail video games didn't cost an arm & and a leg to make. ;)



WaveBoy commented on Video: The 10 Best Zelda Games As Selected By You:

@Ryno Of the few Zelda games that i've played > Yes, i'm a bit of a Zelda noob i must admit. Yet I blame Dr. Wily and King Koopa's evil brain washing streak during the late 80's & 90's. ;)

1. Zelda II
2. ALTTP (the 15 minutes hands on time during the 90's was enough to seal the deal. ;)
2. Link's Awakening
3. Legend of Zelda
4. Phantom Hour Glass (underrated to the tetris tee!)

And i hated wind waker, at least the gamecube version. ;)

Also, i had Zero desire to even play Oracle and season of Ages the moment they came out when the GBA launched. It bothers me when sequels use the same visual asthetics(NES mega man is the only exception. ;)....They looked identicle in art style to Links awakening. I'm sure they're great games, and I'm sure i'll play them eventually on the 3DS. But they will no doubt be the last two or so zelda games that i will play.



WaveBoy commented on Review: Mega Man 6 (Wii U eShop / NES):


I started out with 1, then played 2 3-4 months afterwards when it was hot off the shelves. the original blew me away, it was groundbreaking, but 2...Man, 2 was just magic...It was so epic, up beat, colorful, flat out beautiful, the robot masters were superb and the soundtrack was incredible. By the time 3 came out i'll admit....i felt a little mega man'd out.

It's good game and all. The controls are quicker and more zippity than 2's, the latter climbing is faster, the boss battles are more polished pattern wise and it has a slew of great tracks. But it's darker tone, stages and majority of tunes didn't gel with me. I'm in the minority i know. :P

MM&Bass definitely -was_ the B-Bomb. I think it's safe to say that it's the hardest mega man ever, followed by 10. BTW, i disliked 10, but 9....holy moly he-man, thee' best mega man since 2.

Also, if you missed out on 2 back during it's release and played the later releases before hand like MM3, i can understand why you dislike certain things about it. Anybody starting out with MM, should start from the beginning....Going from 1 - 2 is night and day, and you will appreciate ALL the improvements.

Classic 8-bit NES MM >

2 > 1 > 3 > >>>>>>>>>>>>> 4 > 5 > 6



WaveBoy commented on Review: Mega Man 6 (Wii U eShop / NES):


"Mega Man 2 has the lamest robot masters followed by 5"

Stopped reading right there. They are the most iconic, aside from the originals RM line up. Honestly, i didn't even really enjoy 3 back during it's release and that's hailed as even being better than 2 by many Mega man fanatics. So much for your hipster analogy. then again, 'hipsters' tend to go against the crowd. So in this case by your perception you're the hipster for liking mega man 6 which is typically slammed by the majority of MegaZoids ;)

Look, I don't care about being trendy, if i enjoyed or hated the game than i'll say it like it is. 2, 1, 9 and Mega Man & Bass are the cream of the of classic MM crop imo. 4 is a bit underrated, 5 was B-L-A-N-D not to mention it was when Mega Man lost the series classic touch, and 6 was just average....for me, it just felt rushed, offered zero challenge(mega man 2 was actually much harder....Quick man, heat man's stage without rush jet, wily's fortress bosses ect). The only stage that posed any sort of challenge was plant man's, even then....pfff.

BTW, 2 was absolutely amazing during it's release in the late 80's(I have no idea how old you are, but if you played it during the time you'd know what i'm talking about), the same could be said about the original. But yeah, i guess i'm ze' ultra hipster for dislking 3. Meanwhile, 8 gets a bad rap as well, but i actually thought it was pretty decent.....Terrible cutscenes+Voice acting and weird Japaense elevator sauna bubble gum tunes aside :P



WaveBoy commented on Review: Mega Man 6 (Wii U eShop / NES):

I'd give it a 6. Uninspired, bland all around, music is mostly forgettable, it has the worst selection of robot masters that nobody cares about in the entire classic series(Ok, Centaur man is an exception!) it's far too easy(Finished it without any effort whatsoever) and it lacks the magic and quality of MM1 & 2.

8-bit NES mega man did NOT go out with the bang. The series reached it's stale point the moment 4 came out, at least that's how i felt back in the day. 4-6(Which over saturated 8-bit mega man) should of never existed, MM7 should of been the Mega Man 4. ;)

But back to MM6, i enjoyed using the Rush Jet, Centaur Man was a very unique robot master and i love the music for his stage as well.
That's about it in a nut shell. I could of done without 6, yet i spent almost $60 to get the Cart off eBay. money well wasted! :P
