C-Olimar commented on Speculation Grows That AMD Will Provide the Ni...:

@Nintend0ro Having two consoles set up isn't ideal, especially as I already have a PS3 and Xbox 360, with a PS4 inevitable. There's limited space in my set up.
I'm more concerned about download titles anyway. All those titles available on the eShop would require new versions to run on the new hardware without backwards compatibility. Plus I'd have to pay for them again :/
I'm hoping for a 3DS-DSiWare style integration of the NX and Wii U eShops, whereby Wii U titles are available to download and play on NX, provided you own the necessary controllers.



C-Olimar commented on Speculation Grows That AMD Will Provide the Ni...:

I'm already doubtful I'll buy the NX at launch, but no backwards compatibility would seal the deal. We already know the NX is going to take a while to attain a strong software catalogue - it's a Nintendo console - so without Wii and Wii U game support the console is far less attractive to me.



C-Olimar commented on Multiple Sources Point to Nintendo of America ...:

I was really looking forward to this, but the finished product does look poor in that video. I'll still likely buy; it's not often we get a Nintendo exclusive "mature" shooter... may wait for a price drop though.



C-Olimar commented on Review: G.G Series GREAT WHIP ADVENTURE (DSiWare):

I'm surprised at how good these actually are, it's just a shame no one cares about them.
The publisher could have done a better job though. Dumping them all out on the same day is a great way to cannibalise sales.



C-Olimar commented on Review: G.G Series EXCITING RIVER (DSiWare):

@Godlygamer Yeah, there just doesn't seem to be much interest in DSiWare.
My excuse is Nintendo's insistence in only letting you launch DSiWare from the paltry system memory. I have plenty of space left on my SD Card, and would buy more DSiWare if I didn't have to faff about with save data to do so.



C-Olimar commented on Metroid Prime: Federation Force Is The Metroid...:

Next Level? So what is Retro working on? Weren't we promised we'd see it at this year's E3.
I'm so disappointed we get this in lieu of a real Metroid game. Having said that, I'm sure it's really fun. I'll probably buy it.



C-Olimar commented on Street Fighter Legend Ryu And Fire Emblem's Ro...:

@Samurai_Goroh This. It's no secret that Nintendo fans like Street Fighter - over 1 million of us bought the Street Fighter 4 port on 3DS (many of us probably already owned it on another platform or sales may have been higher) yet Capcom shaft us with Street Fighter 5 (and also the new Resident Evils. Despite Revelations selling best on a Nintendo platform).

The company doesn't deserve this kind of promotion from Nintendo.
........Having said that I can't wait to play Ryu and buy a Ryu amiibo.....



C-Olimar commented on Feature: Nintendo Franchises We Want to See at...:

I'd settle for an HD port of uprising. The dual-stick controls should allow people who didn't like the original's (fantastic) controls to experience one of the best Nintendo games of the generation.
More expansive multiplayer would certainly be nice :)



C-Olimar commented on Rumour: ZombiU Is Shedding Its Wii U Exclusivi...:

Sold poorly? Didn't this game sell nearly a million copies? Plus I'm pretty sure it's Ubisoft's highest selling Wii U game (because "mature" games don't sell on the console).
Just because Ubisoft consider it a poor seller doesn't mean you should :/



C-Olimar commented on Poll: We Need to Talk About amiibo - Where Do ...:

I've managed to get most of the amiibo I've wanted so far, with perhaps a lot of patience but minimal effort.
I have 23 amiibo so far (6 more pre-ordered) and in terms of who I really want I'm missing Robin, Lucina, Shulk and Pit. I know the former two are due restocks soon, hoping on the latter two!
(And damn I want that Chibi Robo amiibo).



C-Olimar commented on Feature: The Full Story Behind Star Fox 2, Nin...:

@ReigningSemtex He didn't describe the PS4 as a cutting edge console. He described it as cutting edge technology. Which it is not.
When the Wii U was released, didn't most most developers say it was slightly more powerful than PS360? I don't think a single person would have described it as cutting edge, despite perhaps being the most powerful console available at the time.
Would you still think the PS4 is cutting in 4+ years time? I doubt that very much, yet it will still almost definitely be the most powerful console on the market, despite its badly ageing technology.
