Dark Fact

Hey guys! Long time no see! :D  Sorry for not being on more often on the forums but I've been really busy with school and stuff.

Anyways, regarding that list, it's a bit ho-hum at the moment.  While it's nice to see Bomberman '93 and Dungeon Explorer, I'm still puzzled as to why Keith Courage isn't on the list as well as Legendary Axe.  I have a suspicion that since Keith Courage is a Sunrise production, the original rights could be stuck in hell between them and Bandai.

Oh and boo-urns for no Turbo CD games right now.  You'd think we could have a few nice launch titles like Ys or even the Thunder series! :evil:

I'm hoping that list grows quickly in the near future because if it doesn't, it'll be an embarassment for Nintendo's service.

I don't mind the list of available games so far, infact I like it. I think the reason why they didn't add Keith or Axe in there yet was because they wanted to add variety in their starting line-up so they wouldn't have three side scrollers. I'm sure those will be available sometime.

Keith Courage?  I'm willing to bet that it's not even on the list at Hudson due to the nature of the game...it was a pack-in, and not only that, the game never hit it big (no sequels).  There are MANY other games (like Alien Crush :)) that I'd rather see brought over first before Keith.

Yeah, it seems like they just picked the flagship game from each genre...Platform game = Bonk.  Puzzle/multi-player = Bomberman, etc.  Victory Run was the wildcard sports/other game.  Legendary Axe is awesome but it can't challenge Bonk's mascot status in the platform/action category.

I find the fact that Japan gets Bomberman 94 and we get Bomberman 93 very disturbing.  They clearly acknowledge '94 as the better game (otherwise Japan would have got '93 as well) but the fact that they're sticking the states with '93 reveals that they're still stuck in the keep-the-Turbo-and-PCE-separate mentality.  Maybe they think US gamers are going to buy games solely for nostalgia and imports won't sell for lack of name recognition.  Maybe Hudson is unwilling to spend time and money translating or reprogramming foreign games.  Whatever the case, we can probably kiss our dreams of seeing Sapphire and Dracula X ever come to the US goodbye.

It's more likely that it is a lot cheaper to put out an already translated game than it would be to go through and get Bomberman '94 anglicized.  :)  You can't Hudson to be throwing tons of money at this venture right away.  Let it catch on, then we'll see the good stuff.  Just remember it failed to catch on the first time around.

Not trying to disagree with you, but translating Bomberman '94 wouldn't be very hard since there isn't much text to begin with, let alone some stuff already being in English :D . But yeah I know what you mean, it's easier to bring out a game that's already in English than go through the trouble with doing any translating at all.

Where did you guys get the images for the list of turbo games in the wii section? Just curious.  I've never seen images from the packaging of these old games that were that good, usually just crappy box scans.
The Turbo was Dual Core when Dual Core wasn't cool . . .

PCEngineFX

I almost always do image touchup/restoration for images on anything I do, so that is the reason why they look that good.  The US boxes were from my own personal archive (with touchup) but the JPN boxes I took from Bt's site http://www.pcecp.com.

Wow, you got that from a box scan?  That is really good.  Usually I can tell if its a scan at least by the color, but those images look perfect.  I am continually impressed with your site's professional asthetic quality.  Keep up the great work!

This game was released in america- it was called Mega Bomberman for the Sega Genesis- so yea- translating it would be a snap.

Awesome!  I read that Japan got R-Type I recently.  I wonder if the US is slated to get that one too...?   

I really wish whoever is in charge would let us buy VC games from any region.  Or at least if there are multiple releases of the same game, then let people select if they want the Japanese version rather than the English version for instance.

Dark Fact

My prayers had been answered! Alien Crush is available for download! [-o<

Awesome news that Military Madness is getting the next release.  I have a friend who is really into that game so he'll be most pleased! :)

I wonder what this Christmas special will be? I sure hope that it's a really good game! I'll laugh my ass off if it turns out to be Keith Courage! :lol:

With Alien Crush released, Devil's Crush shouldn't be too far behind. :D

Anyway, to follow-up on my prior post: I knew it was too good to be true:

http://press.nintendo.com/articles.jsp?id=10831

What's most amusing however, is at the bottom of the page: NES Baseball and Urban Champion will be available after January 1, 2007. Urban Champion? Goodness, why are they making that game available? I suppose a few masochistic (or clueless) folks will pay for that game, but honestly, why is Nintendo offering it?

Actually, this quote is pretty darn amusing as well:
QuoteAs a special holiday surprise for Wii™ owners from Nintendo, the original Super Mario Bros. ™ game for the Nintendo Entertainment System® will appear in the Wii Shop Channel and be downloadable for 500 Wii Points™
Wow! That is a special holiday surprise! Even if Nintendo offered this game for free (as they should), it wouldn't qualify as "special."

Giving all Wii owners a free download or two... now that would be special.

Cool that they're offering R-Type for Christmas. :) But Super Castlevania IV for the SNES? They should've released the first three Castlevanias on the NES first so that we have some proper sequencing.

No :), imagine an overhead racing game like MicroMachines Racing (NES) but with prize money, parts management (upgrades) and special "items" (purchased) over the course of the competition.

MicroMachines is a superior game (addictive as hell and nice controls), but I've had lots of fun with MotoRoader. Unfortunately, I think MR is an acquired taste and that it won't impress too many folks.

Bonus: Fantastic chiptunes! Truly.

You gotta play Motoroader with other people though, it just isn't as fun playing against computers alone. I was never impressed with MotoRoader until I actually put more time with it by playing it with my brothers. Now I love that game to death!

CrackTiger

Motoroader is a 5 player overhead RC Pro Am.

Even though at first it seems like it only matters whose in front at the last screen before the finish line, it's only after everyone starts upgrading their cars that the real game begins and the object becomes outright destroying the competition before the end of each race.
Justin the Not-So-Cheery Black/Hack/CrackTiger helped Joshua Jackass, Andrew/Arkhan Dildovich and the DildoPhiles destroy 2 PC Engine groups: one by Aaron Lambert on Facebook, then the other by Aaron Nanto!!! Him and PCE Aarons don't have a good track record together! Both times he blamed the Aarons and their staff in a "Look-what-you-made-us-do?!" manner, never himself nor his deranged/destructive/doxxing toxic turbo troll gang which he covers up for under the "community" euphemism!

Dark Fact

Ah I see. :) Thanks for the info. :)

When I first read the Moto in Motoroader, I automatically thought Motorbikes and this game was a Motorbike game. :P

So I'm gonna go ahead and brag here :)  I recently got the Matrox RT.X2 HD capture card system and am able to do lossless captures from any source now.  Take a look below...

This is the best capture you can get with regular consumer hardware (Wii > into HD cam > into FireWire)

This is how the same capture will look with the RT.X2 card (Wii using component cables right into the card)
