It is a remake, go compare the original game to the 3DS version.

The US version was and still is $30. Even the Japanese version doesn't cost that much anymore.

Yeah, having played through it a couple of times now the weird Psycho shot-for-shot remakiness of it confused me. Unfortunately I think I'd have to say I preferred the original game, the sprites in the remake are more detailed but smaller which also extends the bosses, some of which have been completely redesigned and are much less interesting to look at (the first boss, which was a train with a huge cannon on the back and an engine that looked something like a Nazi designed bullet train, now looks just like, uh, a normal steam train). This extends to rest of the graphics which are very brown and drab looking, the remixed music is pretty meh too.

Some of the sprites/patters are taken from the GBA version, I think, which is why they feel like they were meant for a smaller screen.

Fast Racing Neo is from Shin'en, the guys behind Nanostray and Art of Balance and a bunch of other cool exclusive Nintendo-hardware games. If you have played any of them you know they are quality stuff.

Hereby it is manifest that during the time men live without a common power to keep them all in awe, they are in that condition which is called war; and such a war as is of every man against every man.

Got Kirby's Nightmare In Dreamland for the GBA on the VC. I'd played Kirby's Adventure back when it came out 22 years ago and wanted to experience it again without the NES-ness of the original and this was a great solution. Beat it in about 3 hours, but to be honest, I want that in a game these days.

Do you believe in heroes?


I played Pirate's Curse as my first Shantae game and really don't see the allure. The powerups were admittedly pretty cool, but the levels were wide open with few to no interesting features, and the physics of the game feel like an awkward mix between Metroidvania and standard platformers. Level design was particularly awful in certain areas: there's one stretch where you're using the cutlass power to rush through several screens, then on the final screen will drop you down to a section of the level roughly 5 minutes prior if you don't make a sudden jump whose timing is messed up by the transition between screens.

The titty anime art has been pointed out, but even beyond that I didn't feel like there were any characters that I'll remember in two months' time. Overall it just reminds me way more of a Flash game on Newgrounds than a 3DS title, especially given all the great platformers on the system it's contending against.

It's on the Wii VC, the only drawback is that you can't play it on the Gamepad without a Wiimote/Classic Controller.

You also have to buy Wii Shop Points, which I guess is another drawback.

Yes, the game you heard about from me 100 times by now is finally coming to more fitting platforms. It was going to be on Wiiware a long time ago, but that developer relationship went south. MP2 Games - who’s doing the port - is already far along, and it’s going to be out in not too long! Quarter 1 is the word right now.

It’ll be the game as you knew it, but with new control methods that some people wanted for eight years *nervous breakdown* now. Hope it excites you! And tell your friends who don’t know the game too, please! That’s the word for now, with as many regions as we’re currently able.

The only change might be that they allow you to use an analog stick. This helped the DS version a lot on the 3DS so maybe it'll sit better.

Ahhh I'd forgotten how the controls worked. I just remembered using the touch screen as a makeshift analog stick. I forgot you could also use the D-pad. I should try it on my 3DS and see if the circle pad helps (I know it'll still only have 8-directional movement).
