@Contrite yeah sorry, my bad, I didn't use the correct wording. It's not that I expect the rendering to be lower due to it being online, but the emphasis on the wired adapter did make me question the whole situation, and why as consumers we'd need to consider forking out more money just to be able to have a decent online experience.

I haven't played a whole bunch of fighters wirelessly so I'm not an authority, I did play some SFIV on 360 without any major issues, but your comments have soothed me, I just want the experience as a whole to be excellent!

I may be looking too much into it, but did anyone else find the emphasis on the wired adaptor to be a bit odd? I'm almost thinking that unless you have it the game will struggle to run 60fps online wirelessly. It might just be galloping paranoia, but it just seemed like a random product placement in the middle of the presentation.

AhabSpampurse commented on Site News: How was 2013 for Nintendo Life?:

I'll be honest, in 2012 I predominantly visted IGN, CVG and Kotaku for my Nintendo news... since discovering this little gem of a site I visit on average at least two to three times a day. Great work guys, I couldn't name a better Nintendo site even if I tried.

I am furious! I spent at least 40 seconds of my life downloading this, at the huge cost of nothing. And now I have my free application, I'm going to rant that it doesn't suit my high standards! Rah rah rah etc...

It's free. Stop moaning and being an idiot. If you don't like it, don't use it. Or better yet, email Nintendo and ask for a refund.

AhabSpampurse commented on Soapbox: Super Mario 3D World's Playful Whimsy...:

Words from my own heart. I've got four kids and a full time job. By the time I sit down I'm mentally drained and physically exhausted. As a youngster I would happily play resi or something that requires full undivided attention, but now, at the end of day I want to sit down, press start, and be playing the actual game and furthermore, relaxing within five minutes. I was a huge 360 gamer, and now I just don't have the patience for the vast majority of titles. Nintendo though, with their charm and simplicity have always brought me back.

AhabSpampurse commented on Nintendo Confirms Live Orchestration in Super ...:

Music is key. Certain tracks will always take me back to a time in my life from when I first played. Bowsers theme from 64, the battle music in Dream Team is fantastic and really sets the scene, and the hub theme from Galaxy are all perfect examples.

Great review, it confirmed pretty much what I felt after playing the demo; initially I was overwhelmed and frustrated, but the more I played the more I loved it and was able to figure out its quirks and eccentricities. Roll on Friday.

@Alshain01 yeah dude, I had the same concerns going in but 3 is absolutely nothing like 1. There is an element of constriction insofar as you need at least 1 fruit portion to live for another day, but I took my sweet time and finished with well over 50 portions of fruit. If your perception of 3 being similar to 1 is holding you back from picking up a copy, you're doing yourself a grave disservice as the game is an absolute gem.
