  1. Midway are now like Acclaim were back in the day (which actually wasn't that long ago).

    They had a few good games, one good solid franchise, but released a load of duff titles at the same time. Look where they ended up. On the scrapheap, liquidated, putting Burnout into the capable hands of EA. Who knows, some other company picking up Mortal Kombat could bring some much-needed life and stability back to the franchise (along with it's recently MIA M-rating).

    Seems they've been trying (and failing) to live off annual releases of Midway Arcade Classics for way too long now, they deserve to drop off the map for that.

  2. I'm a bit late on the boat here (okay, WAY LATE), but I bought this the other day once I took my PS3 home from college (where their stupid network security isn't cmpatible with consoles and their wifi reception is so dire it's not even worth trying to bridge a connection) and I bought this at a bargain €10.

    All I can say is wow. I never played the original on a NES, but did look into it a fair bit and got emulators and stuff, and it's nothing short of outstanding. It's probably the best downloadable game on the PlayStation Network, even if it's a tad easier than the original game imo. It's just a shame that the multiplayer isn't online at all, local only.

    I really can't wait until the "main" Bionic Commando sequel comes out now. Hopefully it won't be too long before that happens.

  3. It entirely depends on whether you're basing it on Red/Blue/Green or Yellow. I know that in essence they are all the same but iirc, in Yellow Gary was the default name for him, as was Ash for the player, as it mirrored the anime in certain respects.

    But Blue had more continuity in the series as a game, so The Damned does have a point, still.

  4. What, the GBC game? It was all right, but mainly because I actually had someone to play against me (for a change). My brother, as much as he likes the original Pokémon games, took a long time to convince into learning the rules so he could play against me, and we'd take the joint collection to make decks out of them and see who could come up with the best one.

    I'd still prefer play a card game by hand than on a computer, mind you, but my brother (and he wasn't letting me) was always too easy to beat, even though he played the GBA game more than I did.

  5. I get the feeling is dragged out too long, and could have maybe used a fade out rather than a sudden halt.

    Apart from that, i don't think I've heard any version of Kraid's theme that sounds like this. Hell, I'd even like this piece if it didn't have Kraid's theme applied to it, and just had the rest of the backing track.

    Can't quite define it into a genre though, but considering that this was a week's work, it's pretty well-done.

    The stream option on TinDeck was rather slow, but streaming off the Download link was faster and much more effective. Just so you know.

  6. TWEWY was amazing. Easily breaks into my top 3 DS games, behind Elite Beat Agents. I'm going to pick up the players guide sometime to help me finish the "game after the game." I highly recommend it to all hardcore gamers, yet I'd tell casual gamers to stay far away because it's too hard and too different for the average gamer. "NEO-TOKYO WTF?"

    By all means don't. Reccommend it to ANY gamer, or just about anyone who owns a DS. I'd only heard about it recently when i seen a Wikia portal about it and thought, "Right, this is the same team that done the Kingdom Hearts GBA game (which i don't have myself, but a few friends thought it was great), and Tetsuya Nomura done the characters, so why not?" and proceeded to order it off Amazon. Mainly because none of the game shops around here had actually heard of it.

    So yeah, i thought it was a great game. It made me stop playing FF4. I'm still playing it, trying to get all the pin drops on all difficulties and all the secret reports, but it's a great gaming experience and I don't have a bad word to say about it (except the sometimes misreading touch commands). If you really enjoyed Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, and are into any S-E titles at all, you will definitely enjoy it.

  7. It'd be interesting to see this upgraded to OCR-quality, and any new Pokémon ReMixes would be welcomed by me. I suggest you get in touch with whoever's now in charge of the Pokémon ReMix Album project (The MissingNo Tracks) and get involved from there. With it being in limbo, it could use all the help it can get, and this would be of great help to the project, something to show that it's still worth pushing for completion.
