Got 202, putting me technically at 19th, drawing with at least two other people, but there wasn't enough room on the leaderboard for me. Had a pretty crummy first 8 races, but ended up getting in the top three for all of them in my second half. Good luck to everyone else, looks like there's a lot less room jumping this time around!

165 after my set of 12. Currently tied for first, with Marioracer and Stacy1199, but I don't think that's going to be good enough to keep first with all the others that still have to play. Good luck to everyone else!

Bulbousaur commented on NES30 GamePad Brings Old School Control To iOS...:

I heard about this a few days ago and thought it was interesting, but now I know it works as a Wii controller I'll probably end up buying it. I guess it works as a sideways WiiMote, but does it work with motion controls since the majority of Wii platformers (particularly NSMBWii and DKCR) basically require them? My honest guess is that it only works with Virtual Console games.

Bulbousaur commented on Rayman Trophy Revealed For Super Smash Bros. O...:

I think this is just announcing third-party characters being in the game not just as playable, but as lesser roles as well like collectables and even assist trophies. Why would Sakurai ruin the surprise so close to the reveal?

While I do think Rayman would make a good moveset and be fun to play as if he were in the game, I don't think he is really eligible to be playable. Other than the plans for Legends to be a Wii U exclusive (which fell through), Rayman has always been a series released on just about everything possible. I would even argue that he would fit better in Playstation All Stars than Smash. Maybe he was planned to be playable before Legends was delayed, so that's why he has a trophy, and possibly an assist trophy.

But could be completely wrong, guess we'll find out the newcomer in just under 6 hours!

Dang, missed out being in the top 10 by only 4 points! If only I got a place higher in a couple of races... I haven't played in just under a week so I was a little bit rusty. Oh well, it was a lot of fun and I can't wait for the next one!

@randomous Yeah, I think I did see you a few times along with Tank_OG. Congrats on winning! I think I would of done slighty better if @Squashy didn't show up, I always focus too much on beating him that my overall racing suffers, just nerves I guess since I know him in real life.

Finished my set, and right now I'm 4th best Nintendo Life Mario Karter with 373 points, and the best non-American! Pretty proud of myself, even though I'll inevitably be knocked down! I'm the green Mii called James BTW

Bulbousaur commented on Mighty No. 9 Has Another Crowdfunding Campaign...:

Why does Comcept need $100,000 for voice acting? Presumingly they already have recording equipment and voice actors lined up for the TV show, why can't they just get the actors to say a few extra lines in the studio and rent out the studio for a few extra days? There is no way they need anything close to $100,000 for that.

Bulbousaur commented on Nintendo Open To Minecraft on Wii U and 3DS, a...:

If Minecraft does come up Wii U, hopefully it'll be the PS4/Xbone version and not the disappointing PS3/360 version with the tiny world size, but I'm not optimistic. As for a 3DS version, yeah I doubt that'll ever happen with the 3DS's power, and even if they a build specially for it, it'll be similar to the stripped-down Pocket version.

Bulbousaur commented on Nintendo Download: 5th June (Europe):

Huh, I thought the Wii U version of How to Survive was cancelled since the other versions came out months ago and we've heard nothing about the Wii U version for ages. I don't even remember seeing the Wii U logo on the official website last time I was there. Might get it then depending on NL's review.

Bulbousaur commented on Pullblox World Puzzling Its Way to Europe on 1...:

Cool I guess, but I don't see it translating very well to the Wii U since puzzle games, especially Pullblox, are very suited for handhelds. I just don't see that many people buying this, since despite for larger puzzle sizes this is just the same game with a HD coat of paint, which is avaliable on a much more popular system. Prove me wrong Nintendo!

Bulbousaur commented on Nintendo Japan Announces Plans for YouTube Aff...:

I'm going to hold off judgement until we hear from the content creators and their viewpoints, since it's them that this really affects, not us. This could be anything from Nintendo taking 5% to 90% of the ad revenue, we just don't know any of the details of this policy yet.

That woman has joined the ranks of Nemesis from Resident Evil 3, Pyramid Head from Silent Hill 2 and the Necromorphs from Dead Space as one of the most terrifying video game monsters...

@kingston589 I highly doubt they would announce Wonder Red or any character as a trophy first before as a playable character. I think that several Wonderful 101 characters will act as a single Assist Trophy preforming some of the team attacks like Unite Fist, Unite Gun and Unite Sword.

Bulbousaur commented on Pokémon Omega Ruby & Pokémon Alpha Sapphire ...:

Sounds like its not a straight remake of Ruby and Sapphire, maybe they'll redesign the Hoenn region to not have so much surfing which will be greatly appreciated. Bit unusual that we basically know nothing at the moment, since main series Pokemon games have a big first reveal most of the time, guess we'll have to wait until E3. (Maybe they just threw this trailer together to try and draw attention away to the poor financial annoucements)

I'll be pre-ordering Omega Ruby as soon as the Amazon page for it comes up.

Bulbousaur commented on Mario Kart Month: Mario Kart 8 Character Profi...:

Other than Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, and maybe Baby Peach, every single Baby character is a complete waste of a spot. Same goes for the Metal characters.

Seriously, all the work they had to do to put Metal Mario and Pink Gold Peach into the game is put a metallic skin over the model, change the character's stats and then distort their voices slightly. Terribly lazy.

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

Haven't watched it yet, but freaking Baby Rosalina? And I thought Baby Daisy was bad enough... Stop throwing Baby characters at us and give us stuff small/light characters which are unique that we actually want like E. Gadd. I'd take Kirby as a cross-over character over any Baby other than Mario, Luigi and Peach.

Bulbousaur commented on Review: Kirby: Triple Deluxe (3DS):

I do want this game, but not for the £30. But the problem with leaving it to buy later is that Kirby games normally go up in price after a few months. KIrby's Adventure Wii/Return to Dream Land is now over £50 new and £40 used on Amazon, and if I leave Triple Deluxe till later who knows how much it will go up buy...

Bulbousaur commented on Nintendo Shows Off Its Mario Golf: World Tour ...:

Day One DLC is always a bit worrying if you ask me, no matter who it comes from. If I do get this game, I'd rather spend my money on another game than DLC.

I was letting this game slip under my radar, but now after seeing these screeenshots and how the game looks overall I'm far more interested. Too bad I need to save up my money so I can Mario Kart 8 on release day.

Bulbousaur commented on Nintendo Download: 24th April (Europe):

Nothing for me. I want to get the first NES Remix before I get the second (both are a little pricey to be honest), and as much as I love Yoshi's Island I can't justify buying it when I already have the Ambassador version.

Bulbousaur commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

This week I beat Infamous 2 in Hero mode, so I might start my Evil playthrough this week on the road to Platinum-ing it. Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze is also on my list, but trying to beat 2-K yesterday for an hour with no success has decreased my morale for it. I also really hope I finally get around to playing Persona 4 Golden this weekend, after a sinfully long time not playing it. DMC: Devil May Cry which I got on PS+ a while back is also a possibilty.

Bulbousaur commented on Feature: Bandai Namco Characters We'd Love to ...:

While I would love Lloyd to make it into the game, realistically its gonna be Pac-Man. The combat system in the Tales games is somewhat similar to Smash, so he'll make a good fit in Smash if given the chance. But with Tales of Symphonia HD Collection being PS3 exclusive, that lowers his chances a lot.
