Nintendo should have all the Wii eshop games on Wii U eshop and Wii channels on the Wii U front screen instead of having to go to Wii mode to play them, even though selecting them would temporarily take you to Wii mode to play them.

Still they could just call it Nintendo Soccer Cup or Nintendo Soccer Championship, or something like that. But then again that goes against Nintendo's Policy of changing VC games although when it came to trademark issues they release Wave Race with altered signs.

In game content is one thing, but they won't be changing game titles. We couldn't have Tetris Attack because of the Tetris name.

Why do they keep releasing this?

Several companies that produced NES games don't exist any more and nobody has the rights to their games, so they cannot be released. Nintendo can't just hijack a dead company's games. Anyway, Solar Jetman is a Rare game so has as much chance as Banjo-Kazooie being released.



Bass_X0 commented on Anniversary: The Nintendo DS is Now 10 Years Old:

I had an original fat silver DS. Inferior in every way by todays standards but back then I was laughing at how I was touching the screen and blowing at the screen to control the game. My first games were Super Mario 64 DS, Pac Pix and Project Rub.

The Donkey Kong series was pretty much dead at the time. Nintendo didn't trust Rare to touch Mario or other big name star back then. So they gave Rare a character that if they screwed up wouldn't hurt Nintendo's main series.

HEY Nintendo why no Golden Sun 2 in North America? Doesn't it take longer for EU games in general..

Nope. America and Europe are independent of each other and while they may have the same list of games to release, each usually chooses different games from that list in the same week. You'll get it later sometime. And we'll get Castlevania and Mario Advance later sometime.

SNES Rainbow Road however was a really pointless choice.

I think this one was a result of development reasons rather than being a handpicked choice. It would be quite quick and easy to port Rainbow Road from 3DS to Wii U. Its the simplest most basic course in the whole series. I would have had the central U turn be raised instead of staying flat.

Course I'm mostly expecting them to just split up the rooms so you only have people with the dlc racing.

Four courses are decided at random. Only players who have downloaded the DLC are allowed in the DLC course room. Thats how I expect it to be.

Nintendo has no imagination when it comes to marketing. :-( Every week a different VC game should be $1.

Everyone would not buy any games at the regular cost and instead wait buy every game that is released at sale. Nobody would buy games full price and Nintendo would lose money.



Bass_X0 commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 1 Hits on 13th November,...:

Maybe its because they used it in Mario Kart 7 that they brought it back here to save on development time.

They should really have grouped the four retro courses, including Excitebike Arena, together in one Cup



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Donkey Kong Country (Wii U eShop / Sup...:

Man, this game was so freak'n hard! I mean, that freak'n mine level,

Nope. The mine carts and rocket barrels in Returns and Tropical Freeze are much, much harder.

Are you referring to Stop N Go as the mine level? Go back through the entrance for a shortcut to the end.



Bass_X0 commented on Review: Donkey Kong Country (Wii U eShop / Sup...:

If it had Super Mario World quality graphics, it wouldn't have done so well. Its a good game but the graphics and music are its only stand out features. I think it was Super Play who said something like "you have many games like this already but here's one pretty graphics". They also pointed out that Nintendo didn't trust Rare with Mario and gave them a character who hasn't had a new game in ten years to play with instead.



Bass_X0 commented on Namco Museum:

Five games for £5.39 isn't bad. Even those games are now simple and dated.



Bass_X0 commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd October (North America):

I'm also interested in Shantae, as I love that franchise, but the price is just way too much, no matter how good it is, Shantae games are really short, the most time spent is backtracking to different areas to get items.

Still longer than four NES games.



Bass_X0 commented on Donkey Kong Land 2:

I'll be getting all the Country and Land games. Never played the original Land 2 & 3 games since they're supposed to be very close to the SNES games but I don't mind that now at this cost.



Bass_X0 commented on Space Invaders: The Original Game:

who the hell would use 800 precious wii points on a classic u can play 4 free on the computer.

The poor saps who have to download each and every VC game just to review it.

LOL This is 800 points! Nintendo has gone crazy if they actually think somebody gonna download this for 800 points!

800 points is the minimum for SNES games regardless of content and quality.
