@Kirk If you feel strongly about the subject, do something constructive with it, make sure that your games follow your code of ethics. Ranting about an issue in the comments of a review isn't going to do anything practical about the matter.

Please, just end it before things get out of hand, none of us want that.

I can understand that the amount of work involved must be astronomical, but given the 3DS & Wii U's excellent connectivity it's something I personally would really love to see.

Perhaps if they found a new way of going about the games rather than a basic HD battle system it would be worth it, but I'm not holding my breath.



AlexOlney commented on Nintendo 64x64: Banjo-Kazooie:

I remember getting this game for my eighth birthday all those years ago and it absolutely blew me away. One of the most memorable birthdays I've ever had.



AlexOlney commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

I honestly don't think the size of the little circle nipple is much of a problem - anyone who's played a game with the Circle Pad Pro will know that it's not exactly used for precision.

I will almost definitely be getting the new XL, I just wish the coloured buttons were on it as well.

I feel that this may well be one of the most positive steps Nintendo have ever taken – they've responded to modern trends in gaming and then blown everyone's expectations out of the water by doing it in the fairest way I can think of. It benefits Nintendo and it benefits us, the price is extremely reasonable and therefore will most likely be a roaring success, leading to more DLC like this for future games.

I think @antdickens has it right. If Nintendo and other games companies offered more options for playing these old games it would reduce the amount these devices are used enormously.

I have mixed feelings about the matter overall, there are those who use these devices to play games they own but with more convenience, and then there are people who use these products to avoid paying for games. Former is good, latter is bad.
