Byron-3D commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Mega CD:

Never owned a Mega CD but used to regularly play on my friends, can't remember the name of the game but it was like Road Avenger but in an helicopter. Many hours spent playing that game as a kid



Byron-3D commented on You'd Better Get a Bigger Micro-SDHC Card for ...:

Got 32gb in my xl so this wouldn't be a problem, it also won't be a problem because if I can buy a game in a case then I will choose that over a download. The only retail games I have downloaded either came preinstalled or I got them through some sort of promotion.



Byron-3D commented on Reaction: Satoru Iwata Holds Off on Major Anno...:

Nintendo don't really do themselves any favors though, they are sitting on a goldmine yet they just choose not to mine it. They could make shed loads more money if they gave their customers what they keep asking for.



Byron-3D commented on Video: YouTube Musician Smooth McGroove Perfor...:

Yeh he is good at what he does but anyone really interested will already be subscribed to his YouTube channel, why every time her releases a Nintendo themed song is it deemed news worthy. This sites quickly filling up with nonsense



Byron-3D commented on Review: 3D After Burner II (3DS eShop):

I have a couple of the 3D classics and I'm happy with them, I'll more then likely pick this up to if I can find it on the eShop. I've struggled to find the other 3D classics I want and the search always comes back blank for me. Damn you Nintendo and your poor eShop layout



Byron-3D commented on New Exploit Makes The 3DS Region Free Without ...:

I don't really have a problem with the system being locked as I'm not really intrested in importing games but I does seem a bit pointless having a system locked in today's day and age, remember though folks this is Nintendo and we know they always do things differently.
I will say though that the PS3 being reagion free came in very handy when I wanted my copy of Stick of Truth to be uncensered.



Byron-3D commented on The Bomber's Notebook Will Be Revamped in The ...:

I honestly don't understand why people moan about games they are still yet to play, if you don't like the changes go and boot your N64 up and play the original.
I never finished the original MM so I'm looking forwards to playing this and welcome any changes they make if it makes the game a more enjoyable experience.



Byron-3D commented on Game of the Year: Nintendo Life's Reader Award...:

Tough choice, it's going to be between MK8 or smash on the 3DS for me though I have a massive backlog and constantly play games long after their release (even though I pick them up at launch) so with that in mind my 'GOTY' is actually Mario and Luigi Dream Team Bros.



Byron-3D commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

I don't get why 7 hasn't got many votes as for me it's the best of the bunch and the one that got me back into the series, I still have many late night playing it online and I find the races that little more frantic and 'edge of seat' then I do on 8.



Byron-3D commented on Discontinued amiibo Figures Could Be Released ...:

I'm all game for them releasing cards ect with the chips inside, being a 31 year old guy I find collecting toys a little bit 'childish' and something more aimed at my 3 year old daughter but on the flip side I still want to use the features they bring to my games



Byron-3D commented on Capcom Has Now Sold 1.2 Million Copies of Supe...:

Bought this game a wile ago when it was on offer for £10 brand new (might have been £8.99 bit not going to be picky) can't say I'm a massive Street Fighter fan TBH but this is defiantly one of the better portable fighting games I have played.



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 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.
