@Joshers744 What sort of information are you looking for? Obviously we have a fairly comprehensive games list and coming soon list that might cater for your information needs?

You're right. I see it now. Sorry, my work computer acts sort of weird and that's usually where I'm at when I get on this site. You're good.

Some online games include: Mario Kart 8, Mario Kart 7, Smash Bros Wii U and 3DS, Super Mario Maker and Splatoon.

I wish Nintendo Life would make their Reviews a bit more interesting and meatier in the Score department.

Instead of the basic 1-10 scale, why not apply the .5's? This would obviously offer more variety.
And why not rate/score the graphics, Sound, Gameplay, Replay Value and even the Presentation out of a simple 10 as well?
Old School Gamepro magazine and GPTV were some of the best at busting out the score based reviews with those awesome classic crazy 'score based' faces that i miss oh so dearly haha

Couple of things:

The 10-point scale, we feel, is more than enough to give you an indication of whether a game's worth buying or not. I don't think making it more granular is helpful tbh, and the same applies to having more scores: the body of the text should tell you most of what you need to know, and in terms of graphics etc. you can easily find screenshots and videos online to tell you if it's good looking. Back in the magazine days I can see more scores would have been useful, but it's not so relevant any more.

I agree with Rukiafan, there should be a mobile website OR ios app.

Brilliant. There is no page 0. Better have the programmers fix that one.

Just want a mobile site for my phone and that's mainly for the forums. Other than that I find the current site to be find when viewing on a tablet or 3ds.

My ideas:

Forums:

  • For one, the forums still don't have a reply button; what's up w/ that?
  • Quoting still forces the page to reload, wasn't that supposed to be fixed soon?

Comments:

  • Likewise, the comments could use a quote button soon as well.
  • Get a more organized reply system for comments, kinda like this:

[quote]
(The comment goes here)
Replies: (# of replies go here)

  • (reply goes here)
  • (and so on...)

</blockquote>

Site:

  • 3DS optimization still isn't here either. Better to get it right the first time, but it could be a faster process.
  • Phone optimization might as well come soon too.
  • Get the Xbox site fleshed-out in time for Halo 4 please.
  • Fix the page 0 typo that's been mentioned earlier.
  • You know the thread on formatting messages? Take the main ideas on how to use bold font, insert media, add emoticons, etc., and put it in a beginners' guide.

Technical issues:

  • Fix glitches like the devil face emoticon glitch, etc.
  • Could you look into some of these other technical issues associated w/ the editing process as well:
    • When I edit this I see another glitch - my quote turned into some random crap. (See above for example:)
    • Also, when I edit I see what's in between 2 equal signs copied after a number sign.
      EX:
      Before: "==this and that==" After: "==this and that== #this-and-that"

@VincentV We won't do a full-on Xbox site until the new Xbox is revealed. Too much to catch up on.
The thread for formatting messages pretty much is a beginner's guide, and a good one at that.

We are looking at revamping the way comments and forums are handled. Hope you realise that with E3 this week we have more pressing stuff to do so can't promise you any of this stuff will get acted on quickly.

I know that this site is really trying to be a global one, but you should make it more British. I guess I'm only saying this because I was born there and miss it sometimes, haha.

I agree with this one. Having an Ask James feature maybe two times out of the month would be pretty cool.

As far as mobile, if I may suggest a Nintendo Life app? It will allow users to browse the site and visit the forums. I think it would be a nice start into the app world.

Be kind to yourself and to others.

We use British English, we're based in England and try to bring as much UK-relevant news as possible... what more could we do?

As for "Ask James", I'd like to do more video content but let's face it guys, I've got a face for podcasts. We will look to do a video this week for E3 though - more news on that soon.

I understand. 1st priority: E3. 2nd priority: fixing comments. And you have a point: it'd be (almost) impossible to recover from being late to making an Xbox 360 site this late in the systems' lifetime. Anyways, keep up the excellent E3 work!
