ArcanineArco commented on Talking Point: Wii U Gamers Have Been Treated ...:

Wii U is my favorite console of all time. I love it. Sure, I'm disappointed with the amount of third party support.... I think a perfect balance between the two is a win-win situation for Nintendo and its fans. Also they NEED to learn how to promote and advertise mature games properly!!



ArcanineArco commented on The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Off...:

I got it when it was last on Club Nintendo, I hope they release more soundtracks on Club Nintendo though before it is discontinued. I still think they should actually sell these soundtracks though because people clearly want to buy them



ArcanineArco commented on Activision Enlists Kevin Spacey To Sell Call O...:

This is what I think (in order)

1) Activision is on the fence about Wii U release
2) They keep quiet on Wii U release
3) Mario Kart 8 is hot, sells tons! Wii U consoles fly off shelves
4) Activision: "Dayum, we have to put it on Wii U now fo sho"
5) Treyarch port it to Wi U like they always do
6) CoD: AW Wii U Confirmed



ArcanineArco commented on Nintendo Direct: Special Mario Kart 8 Direct S...:

Loved it!. The only problem I had... was when they started talking about the new items. The new items are awesome, it was just how the two "narrators" were talking about it... speaking as if we were 3-4 year old children... so cringey and it annoyed me a little. It was only during that section that I felt they did this, so I don't understand why? (talking about the UK video)



ArcanineArco commented on NES Remix 2 Features A Mode Which Mimics The 1...:

I really want to get both NES Remix 1 and 2.. and I was about to buy the first one a few months back... BUT... once I saw that they will release a physical copy which has both NES Remix 1 and 2 on disc in Japan, I am just holding out hoping that they do the same for Europe. I much prefer physical and If I buy these 2 on eshop then they release a physical disc like Japan... I would be DEVASTATED



ArcanineArco commented on Nintendo Download: 10th April (Europe):

I have been looking at Ducktales: Remastered for a good while but was reluctant to pay £12 since I haven't played the original and have no nostalgic pull to it. Now with this price drop, I will be picking that game up for sure



ArcanineArco commented on Review: Yoshi's New Island (3DS):

"Like Donkey Kong, this game was just a waste of resources. Nintendo could have made a Starfox or Metroid"

Donkey Kong a waste of resources? By that comment I can CLEARLY tell you have never even played Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze. If you are not keen on the Donkey Kong series then fair enough, but to say it is a waste of resources is just ignorant. It was an AWESOME game and is certainly one of the best games on the Wii U and if not one of the best platformers in years!. Excellent platforming, music, everything. Also recieved sky high reviews. You just wanted a Starfox or Metroid instead. Donkey Kongs sells better than Metroid and Starfox and with the current state of the Wii U, the choice wasn't hard for Nintendo. I love Metroid and Starfox too and I do fully believe there will be both a Starfox and Metroid either on Wii U or 3DS, just be patient.



ArcanineArco commented on Watch_Dogs Wii U 2014 Release a "Possibility",...:

I think Ubisoft knew about Mario Kart 8s release date before we did, which made them panic about how well Watch Dogs would do on Wii U because the dates were very close together, which is why I think that it is the reason that only the Wii U version has been delayed and not the others. Obviously I may be wrong, this is just my opinion .^_^.



ArcanineArco commented on NPD Data Shows More U.S. Gamers Switching to D...:

I will be so upset when the day comes when all video games are only available digitally. Having the game disc, box and manual means a lot to me and it has done for so many years since I was a kid, looking at my shelf with my collection of games always makes me have a smile on my face.

If I can buy a game physically, there is no way I would download it digitally. I only download eshop exclusive titles, virtual console and indie titles etc because they are not available in physical form (excluding virtual console) Also, currently the download versions are even more EXPENSIVE! (yes I know the reason why). No way am I paying even MORE money for just a download without a physical box, manual and disc. Also, no re-sale value what so ever. Doesn't effect me as much though because I don't trade in games any more because the trade in prices are pathetic in my opinion, plus I collect games, but I know there are people who have to trade in games to go towards another game they want

There are many people who prefer physical copies and there are many people who prefer downloading digitally. I think they should keep both. Unfortunately, I don't think this will happen, although I am confident that Nintendo will be the last of the big three to scrap physical copies completely. Remember, this is my OPINION. I have nothing against digital downloads at all, they are just not for me. It would be awesome to have both forever



ArcanineArco commented on Super Mario Bros. Deluxe Set For 27th February...:

@PVTAngrybird YOU guys got the Legend of Zelda Four Swords for FREE recently so I don't know what you are complaining about. Us Europeans were so annoyed at not getting that. The SMB deluxe is just Super Mario Bros with some new little things. Would much rather of had Four Swords with SMB Deluxe just being released for a price on eshop like it will be anyways. The game will come to North America anyways while we won't get Four Swords at all



ArcanineArco commented on The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary E...:

I can complain. I completely disagree. It is not the same. I would much rather have a GBA Zelda than GB Mario Bros deluxe. Mario Bros deluxe is just a remake of the original Super Mario Bros (which is already on eshop) but with some newish stuff and features. Four Swords is a GBA game. Which are not on the virtual console, except for the ambassador ones that people got. Four Swords the first time around wasn't that long into the 3DS life cycle apparently, so the install base was no where near the same. Plenty of people will be downloading this on their 3DS for the first time. North America will probably get Mario Bros Deluxe on the eshop for purchase anyways, while we won't get this. So this is not fair at all. Just my opinion
