Byron-3D commented on Nintendo 64x64: Killer Instinct Gold:

Ahh KI:Gold this is the only game if class myself as a master at, I know this game inside out and that's just as well after the 100s of pound coins I chucked into the original KI2 machine, this was a god send when it got released it's saved me a lot of money and boardum



Byron-3D commented on 3DS Homebrew Channel Reportedly in Final Stage...:

There's a lot of pros and cons to this, obviously homebrew is a big plus and over the years I've had some awesome homebrew for some of my consoles (WiiMC was alone worth soft modding the Wii for) but as we all know things like this always end up being spoiled by the filthy pirates.

Ok I know gateway is on the market and you can already pirate 3ds games but when it comes to soft mods it let's you pirate for free and their for makes it a lot more inviting for those who want to pirate (remember these people won't shift £25 for a decent game then they prob won't want to chuck money at a flash cart).

Nintendo will patch this as soon as it's released anyways but what I think they need to do in a system update is block all online features to all 3ds consoles on older firmware so people are forced to update their consoles and to protect online from the skavvy people who want to cheat and pirate.



Byron-3D commented on The Sega Genesis is Now 25 Years Old:

I remember the day I got my Mega Drive, one of the best Christmas Days I ever had, hours spent playing sonic, Mortal Kombat and Mega Games 2. Looking back now though I wish my parents had bought me a SNES



Byron-3D commented on The Trending #WiiUDroughtAid Shows That, Actua...:

No drought for me, I still have ZombiU and Tropical Freeze still sealed on my shelf. Ok my wii u isn't the only console I play but there's defiantly enough content to make the console worth it's £250 price tag.



Byron-3D commented on Mario Kart 8 Update & DLC Scheduled for 27th A...:

I'm all for the updates and love the fact they changing the default options but I'm unhappy about them bundling the dlc with the update technically forcing the merc dlc onto us (I'm assuming to race online you will need the update). I'd rather have the choice to keep the tacky dlc karts out of my game



Byron-3D commented on Play & Win: Here Are The Mario Kart 8 UK Tourn...:

When I first started I thought I'd be in with a chance of winning then only ended up with 132 points, really enjoyed it and would play again, I voted Monday as it's game night but could make it any night of the week.



Byron-3D commented on UK Government Effectively Decriminalises Downl...:

I used to be a pirate for quite a wile when I was younger but now I don't beleve in waiting around downloading massive files, much easer to go buy the bluray or game for the sake of a few quid. Makes me laugh as I still know people that will buy knock off games or movies for a fiver a pop yet the real thing is only a couple of quid more. If they want to cut piracy treat it like shoplifting, if your caught downloading/stealing no matter how petty you get arrested and cautioned, get caught again then get charged and go to court and risk going to jail. The crimes are the same at the end of the day.

Edit to add: they should also treat people who buy pirated media the same as people who handle stolen good as again it's the same crime



Byron-3D commented on Latest Wii U System Update Allows Console To C...:

As others have said this is just a step away from what we want, this is why if there's an eShop game I can also get of PSN il go for the latter, not only wis their the chance it comes with cross play but I also feel like my purchase is more secure should anything happen to my console.



Byron-3D commented on Talking Point: Should Nintendo Be Promoting Th...:

I've been putting of buying a tablet because of my gamepad, there's times when I'm watching tv ect il grab the gamepad to check the internet but it's no way a replacement for a 'real' tablet, it only does the basic things a tablet can do and if Nintendo promote it as something it's not then they will have more unhappy customers. Has whoever wrote this article ever used the gamepad? If they had they would realise this article is pointless



Byron-3D commented on Nintendo Download: 19th June (Europe):

Only really interested in Another World, il wait for a review first then try decide what console to pick it up on. I'm only about 50 points off from my free £5 eShop credit as part of the premium promo so may put that towards it.



Byron-3D commented on The Next Batman Game Is Arkham Knight, And No,...:

@eaglebob345 I think your missing the point about what I mean by superior, it's nothing to do with the amount of games it's what the console alone is offering, correct me if I'm wrong but I can't even play mp3s of a USB stick on my wii u let alone a movie. Now everybody shush!! I can't be bothered going round in circles anymore. I bought a wii u, then I bought a ps3 and realised the wii u was as bad as people had told me. Lesson learnt. End off



Byron-3D commented on The Next Batman Game Is Arkham Knight, And No,...:

Like I've said before I only bought my wii u for the first party game and yes I haven't played all of them but it's nice to shake things up a bit. For an age I've been defending Nintendo and their games but after picking up a PS3 two weeks ago I'm finding it the far more superior console, this shouldn't be happening with consoles with a 6/7 year age gap.
Now I have to turn round to my mates and say that they was right from the start and Nintendo really are losing their 'game' so to speak.
(Please note I'm not saying Nintendo are doomed)



Byron-3D commented on The Next Batman Game Is Arkham Knight, And No,...:

@Lopezdm how can you blame current wii u owners for not supporting the console because they don't pick up some games? They already showed the support when buying the console. What if after you getting your new PS4 games were coming out that was better on the 360



Byron-3D commented on The Next Batman Game Is Arkham Knight, And No,...:

@Lopezdm yes I understand that about getting sales up, that's all good business at the end of the day but how can they expect people to buy the game when there's things missing, poor framerates or a lack of dlc? Does this mean I have to buy the poorer version of the game to guarantee more releases?
I'd be interested to know out of the people who own a Wii U an one of the other consoles what format they will be buying watchdogs on, it's looking like il be picking it up for my PS3 rather then my Wii U



Byron-3D commented on The Next Batman Game Is Arkham Knight, And No,...:

I really am starting to regret getting a Wii U now, ok the main reason I got it was for first party games but what am I to do in between releases? I should hav just got my PS3 and left the Wii U until it was in the bargen bin and I had plenty of software to pick up for it.



Byron-3D commented on Flappy Bird is Now Playable on the DSi and 3DS...:

What is everyone's problem? If you don't like the game don't play it, if you don't agree with the mobile/smartphone game market and the casual gamers it has then move on and open your 3ds and carry on playing your games. Some people are treating it like a religion and will bash anyone that don't beleve the same as they do. If everyone liked the same things then we would live in a very stale world



Byron-3D commented on Talking Point: What We Expect In Nintendo Dire...:

Hope they pull out all the stops for the wii u, I'm really starting to think it was a poor decision to get one and think I'd have been better of picking up a ps3. I doubt Nintendo gave any surprises though it feels like their losing their touch



Byron-3D commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

I'm comin up to the last 1/4 of Dream Team Bros. On my 3DS and on my Wii U I've just got to 100% the last 4 worlds on NSMBU. At times when I need a break il be dropping in some Cloudberry Kingdom and KI:Uprising.
Hopefully I will have things wraped up this weekend so I can start Wind Waker HD next week.



Byron-3D commented on A Third-Party "Secret Developer" Gives an Insi...:

Screw 3rd party's, do people seriously buy Nintendo consoles to play anything other then Nintendo games, I know that's all I buy them for and if a good 3rd party game comes along it's a bonus.
If your that bothered about 3rd party games buy a 2nd console and follow the sheep



Byron-3D commented on Nintendo Reiterates Confidence That the Wii U ...:

I think theirs enough decent games on the wii u to warrant buying one, the only thing stopping me ATM is the massive backlog of games I have for my 3ds.
As much as the big n try to denigh it the name really hasn't done the console any favors, this was backed up by a convo I heard in Argos the other day where one lad was explaining to his mate that it's a wii u not a wii on the demo stand in the corner



Byron-3D commented on 3DS Owners Can Connect And Play With StreetPas...:

This would have been handy for me if I hadn't discovered Homepass, I just run that 2/3 times a week now for a hour or so and it fills all my games up nicely. BTW any one running homepass and has animal crossing have you seen the quality of the houses coming out of Japan? Gobsmacking!



Byron-3D commented on EA Germany Survey Fails To Acknowledge The Wii U:

TBH I only buy Nintendo consoles to play Nintendo games and the few decent 3rd party games, If (and thats a BIG If) someone like EA/Rockstar ect do release a game that interest me and I cant play it on a Nintendo console (GTA V) I just pick it up for my 2nd hand cheap hardly used dust collecting Xbox 360
