Oh then maybe you didn't see Krzy's post among all the flames (sorry about that everyone):

I have finished my project of 5V->3.3V level translator that allows safe use of Chinese multicarts Smiley

I've bought the other Columbus Circle releases, but wasn't interested in this one until I heard about the new features. I have the original NES release but never finished it due to the difficulty curve.

So far none of these carts have blown up my Famicom, so let the good times roll! I'd love for someone to sell an adapter to regulate the voltage on these games though.

Also, Amazon Japan is my new best friend for Japanese imports. Cheaper and super  fast shipping when compared with Play-Asia.

I don't think anyone on this forum is really interested in the Famicom/NES emulation alone (unless they really want the online feature or the portability) when we already have the real hardware.

Just be careful with the 7-day trial and turn off the auto renewal in the eShop. Since the trial renews into the 1 month plan by default, the most expensive plan.

Well compared to what modern day console Xbox and PS4 cost then I assume is cheaper?
Yeah Sony and Microsoft systems nowdays costs and arm and a leg. Nintendo's systems do come pretty close if you buy lots of controllers and other accessories though.

That's an interesting genre to see it as: action puzzle! One challenge to figure out the solution and one challenge to execute it.

I'm also intrigued by the change from one-hit-kill. Whether there is some kind of knock-back or not, the puzzles' possible solutions must be drastically changed in many cases.

The fact that they're allowing for multiple hits before dying (instead of one-hit kills) really is a game changer.  It will make the game less frustrating, but i do wonder if it'll not be quite as much fun. 

Each screen is pretty much a puzzle that you have to figure out, but if you can get hit a few times then you can just run through the really hard ones without thinking.  Where's the sense of accomplishment?

On the other hand, I never finished Battle Kid because I got to a screen that I just couldn't figure out (or couldn't execute).  If I were able to take a hit and keep going, then I might have kept playing.

It's intesting, how one change could totally alter the gameplay like that, as well as how people might play the game.

I haven't really played the original, but I look forward to trying this version out.  The change probably will make the game more accessible to people.

I signed up for the 7-day trial, but I don't use my Switch enough to really make it worth paying for, I think.

The NES collection is neat, but it just feel goofy playing them this way.  I have the carts already.  I have the console hooked up.  I can just go upstairs and play them with a real CRT at the real intended aspect ratio.

I know I'm an edge case, though.  The whole thing is well-presented and am sure would be a blast to people my age who don't collect.

Honestly, it's $20 a year, but I see Ikaruga is on sale for $10 right now and I'd much rather throw my money at that Grin

Scandalous Lips Sealed

It wouldn't have been the first time something like this happened, as there was a ton of Konami games, including both chipped and globs version of Contra, that were fakes (well fake shells and legit PCBs) likely endorsed by Konami.

A few days back I saw a picture of a clone machine made by Hudson's Taiwan division / joint venture project (I forget the exact relations, but Hudson was definitely involved). While at first I thought it was just a neat obscure clone machine, what later struck me was that the cartridge stuck inside the machine was one of these pirates with the Hudson-inspired Hu label.

Coincidence? Possibly, but it just seemed really odd, especially when l had later learned the picture came from a guy (non-collector/gamer) whose dad used to work for the company back in the day. I tried to inquire more, but sadly the dad had passed away a few years back Cry

Regarding moving on or not:  next time someone brings up the senseless gripe about an unauthorized product not being 100% compatible with original hardware, for which it was not specifically designd / guaranteed to work, then I'll be bringing up the marketing bit again, guaranteed.
You are not the victim of being silenced for your opinions nor are you the neutral part of the discussion as you pretend to be (how can what you say both be subjective opinions and objective facts at the same time anyway?). You are just being an ass now, I hope you realize that.

I dont particularly appreciate such titles being bestowed upon me, but I'll let that be for what it is.

While I do find the endless negative banter surrounding this and the other Columbus Circle games to be very tiresome to hear (we all saw the situation for what it is, and it remains what it is, basically...I'd rather focus on the games than the voltage issue), aside from being tired of said complaining, I honestly couldn't care less about it.

As I've said earlier, I can see and recognise the common perspective regarding these games and situation. I was just trying to present another possible viewpoint, whether it is "correct" or not, who knows, but I am the sort that feels not everything in life is black and white.

If trying to see other viewpoints makes you or others here feel uncomfortable, I'm honestly not sure what to say by it. I'm sorry for offending you guys?
