It's life Jim but not as we know it

Male, Ireland

I've been a gamer since the NES era. I'm not keen on the direction Nintendo has taken in recent years but I still believe in them.

Blue-Thunder commented on Nintendo 64x64: F-Zero X:

F Zero X is one of the coolest and best games ever made. I absolutely adore this game. The graphic style, the handling, the music, the challenge, the art, incredible.

I'm really glad F Zero X was released on Wii VC because my N64 is broken so at least I have a good version to play. 10/10



Blue-Thunder commented on Nintendo 64x64: F1 World Grand Prix:

5/10 my foot. One of the most realistic F1 racers for its time with incredible graphics to boot.

I think it was developed by the same developer that Nintendo partnered to make Pilotwings 64. Great game 8.5/10



Blue-Thunder commented on Nintendo 64x64: Mario Kart 64:

I unlike others, think that MK64 has aged well, as have most N64 games developed by Nintendo. Has anyone here looked at a PS1 game from the same era? Now they didn't aged well.

The only down side MK64 has, is the AI is weak. Apart from that it's a fantastic game from 1996. Its great for multiplayer and time trials.



Blue-Thunder commented on Nintendo 64x64: Diddy Kong Racing:

I have played DK racing recently on Project 64 since my N64 packed in and I also still have it on catridge.

For you to say "I don't agree to agree with people having "opinions" on something that is objectively fact and not really open to "opinion"." is wrong because your actually wrong.

The track design is superior in MK64 as well, so is the music. MK64 may not have as much content as DKR but it is the better racer. A purest like me likes perfection. DK racing controls are to loose. I'm not putting down the game. I just have to stand up for what I believe. I never did time trials in DK racing because the controls are not tight enough for what I'm looking for in a game. MK64 on the other is perfect for time trials and that's when you can appreciate the incredible accurate tight controls and track design.

My favorite MK game is MK Double Dash so I'm not a MK64 nut. I am going to stand up and say "lets get a grip here, DK racing is not a better game than MK64". I'm just keeping it real dude.



Blue-Thunder commented on Nintendo 64x64: Diddy Kong Racing:

I can't believe the comments claiming DK racing is better than MK64. The controls are not as tight or as good as MK64 and anyone who can't see that hasn't really played MK64. The controls in MK64 are tweaked to perfection.

Sorry guys but it's wishful thinking saying this is the #1 kart racer on N64.

One more thing you said "The fact that Nintendo doesn't use their own design anymore is proof of that. Sony is responsible for the modern controller".

After the N64, Nintendo designed possible the greatest pad ever the Gamecube controller. Then they designed the Wii remote and nunchuk Sony copied that as well. Lets not forget the classic controller and Wiiu pro controller and now we have the Wiiu gamepad.

You also said "Last time I checked, modern controllers look like the DualShock, not the N64 controller" The DualShock look like the DualShock, M$ Xbox controller looks totally different.

Nintendo's designs are constantly evolving. Design can't stand still.

Nintendo innovates Sony imitates.



Blue-Thunder commented on Feature: The Nintendo 64 Controller and the Ri...:

You can believe what you want. Nintendo invented the D pad, the SNES controller was the first to have shoulder buttons and featured the four button layout that all pads use today. The N64 was the first console to use an analog control stick and the first controller to have a rumble feature. There ya go Nintendo invented the modern game controller and Sony as I said copied everything they did.

Sony put 2 wings on Nintendo's design and you are giving them all the credit lol

By the way I have 2 PS3 consoles and I had a PS1 and 2 as well.



Blue-Thunder commented on Feature: The Nintendo 64 Controller and the Ri...:

The N64 controller was revolutionary at the time. I didn't know about the Sega controller. Unfortunately the control sticks didn't last very long, but when they were new, they felt sweet.

I personally think Nintendo single handedly (or at least more than anyone else) invented the modern game controller as we know it. Sony copied everything Nintendo did, or tried to. Credit where credits due.



Blue-Thunder commented on Project: Nintendo 64x64:

I love the N64. 17 years on and N64 games are highly playable. I play MK64 and F Zero X regularly.

That is why I love the Wii so much, it's a gateway to classic N64 games and Nintendo's past.



Blue-Thunder commented on Ubisoft Executive Talks Up Super Smash Bros. a...:

I also buy Nintendo consoles for first party games only. I have to disagree with you on one point though. Dedicated gamers buy Nintendo consoles, not the other way round. The masses buy Playstation and Xbox.

Nothing wrong with Playstation, but if your a dedicated gamer and you haven't got a Nintendo your not really a dedicated gamer are ya?



Blue-Thunder commented on Feature: Ten Wii U and 3DS Games That Are Perf...:

I have all them 5 Wiiu games on the list along with Nintendo land and Zombie U.

For some strange reason I hardly ever play Wiiu tho. I am obsessed with the Wii. I think it's the greatest console ever made.

Someday I will start playing my Wiiu but at the moment I'm having a ball with the Wii. It plays SNES, N64, Gamecube, NES and Wii. What more could I want.



Blue-Thunder commented on Nintendo Download: 24th July (Europe):

"If you own either Nes remix or Nes remix 2" Ha. I bought them all already on Wii and I'm not about to buy them again.

Can anyone tell me, if I transfer my VC and Wiiware games from Wii to Wiiu, will all my games move over? N64, SNES, MD, Wiiware, Turbographics the lot?



Blue-Thunder commented on The NES Story Began On This Day 31 Years Ago:

When I bought my NES I had actually went to buy a Mega drive. I had £150 on me. I knew the MD was £150. What I didn't know was it didn't come with a game, I didn't have another £50 for a game. I seen the NES with SMB and Duck hunt in the store and bought it instead for £120.

I can remember carrying the console home that night and my then girlfriend had a face on her like a slapped arsh :-). She was probably annoyed I didn't spend the money on her. :-D

That console changed my life, for the worse.



Blue-Thunder commented on Sony: PS4 Is "Welcoming Back" Wii Owners Who S...:

Hmmm I'm not to sure how not having a PlayStation Plus account means you must not own a PS3. I don't think gamers are buying PS4 to play PS3 remakes. That would be ridiculous when they can be got for pennies on PS3.

To have the best of both worlds gamers need a Wiiu and a PS4. M$ can buzz off. I'll get a PS4 in a year or two or three. It'll take a game like Gran Turismo 7 to get the wind behind me. :-)
