Deadeyerobbie commented on Review: Mario Kart 64 (Wii U eShop / N64):

The rubber banding is terrible, but in 4 player race and battle modes this is 1 of the best party games I have ever played. This game (and Goldeneye) very nearly ruined my studying for my degree. Great times😃



Deadeyerobbie commented on Site News: Nintendo Life Turns 10 Today:

Happy birthday Nintendo Life. My first and only Nintendo website. Found you when virtual console reviews joined you. Visit your site every day. Thank-you all for all your hard work. Here's to the next 10 years



Deadeyerobbie commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer...:

How do you choose? For me I never owned a nes or snes as a kid (C64 and Amiga boy). My first Nintendo console was an N64, so Mario 64 will always be the one. However Galaxy 1 and 2, Super Mario World, Mario 3 and sunshine are right up there.



Deadeyerobbie commented on Nintendo: Wii U GamePad Is The Only Real Innov...:

I like the gamepad. Off screen play is great. Little man can play minecraft on my 360 while I play on the Wii U. Yes it could do with more range. I would love to play in another room. And there are some class games which use it - Nintendoland probably being the best.



Deadeyerobbie commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (...:

I loved this game on the N64. Many lost hours exploring. Recently played through the 3DS version which is amazing. Given a choice i would recommend the 3DS, but if you don't have that option and you have never played this game before you will not be disappointed with the Wii U version. Yes it looks dated and the water temple is a pain (you can use a walkthrough in this day n age), but the story will grab you

You only have to look at the charts on shop resent and overall to see vc games make money. Third party I can understand but there are lots of Nintendo titles still missing. Sometimes you have to employ more people to make more money.

After hearing there is going to be a Wii U version I was going to wait. However if EU is going to get the cross buy too i will buy it for my 3DS. £7.99 i thought was a little bit high but if cross buy is included that is worth the asking price.



Deadeyerobbie commented on Poll: How Excited Are You About Nintendo's E3 ...:

Yoshi pre ordered (out next week in Europe), super Mario maker , Zelda, xenoblade, star Fox and possibly metroid prime fed. Just need more to last to the nx. Future directs need to deliver but not holding out any hopes . Retro what have you got? VC we need you too. And some quality Indy . It's not all bad but it could and perhaps should better



Deadeyerobbie commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

I have waited till now to comment about yesterday. I rewatched the broadcast, just to help clear my thoughts about it. Just very disappointed overall. Its nice to see the 3DS have a few more games as there a real lack of games for the rest of the year / early 2016. However the Wii U has been left wanting. Yes i know we have super mario maker and star fox. Looking forward to both after watching some of the Treehouse footage of star fox. Xenoblade X is a marmite type of game. You will love it or hate and in europe it will not sale too well (i hope i am wrong as i am going to try it). Zelda is still a long way off and will probably be the Wii U's swansong. The lack of 1 or 2 more big releases hurts - a real Metroid game, F-Zero, Wave race, Diddy kong racing, Mario Galaxy/Sunshine, a real Animal crossing, Mario strikers etc. Nintendo you have a great list to choose from. That's why i and judging by the rest of the comments most people feel disappointment. Also no news on the VC (N64, Gamecube, other consoles TG16 Sega etc). That needs addressing. The Indy game demos is a great idea, but there must be more you can show. The best thing for me to come out of E3 is the backward compatibility for Xbox 360 on the Xbox 1. Now i can upgrade and hopefully take most of me 360 games with me.



Deadeyerobbie commented on Editorial: The eShop's Pricing Dilemma is the ...:

Having read through all the above comments (lots of great points by the way), the 1 thing missing is the ability of a sale to catch a person to buy a game who never would in the first place. I have brought multiple games on both my Wii U and my 3ds eshops I would never of tried otherwise. I will always read a review or 2 and then give them a go. I like both eshops - yes they can be improved (more virtual console games please), but I generally buy a game if I like the look and sound of it. Some new, some in the sales. Note not all games get discounted. Bought Ultratron yesterday (loving it by the way) knowing that in a month or 2 it will be discounted. I just thought it was worth the money. And that may be the point. What is the game worth to you?



Deadeyerobbie commented on Review: Ultratron (Wii U eShop):

Loving it. Very old school blaster with the twist of the upgrades. As pointed out before if you turn off some of the visual effects on the menu it does become easier to see on the later levels. Also clearer playing on your TV than the Gamepad.



Deadeyerobbie commented on Poll: Is It Time For a Fresh Alternative to th...:

I like the vc on both the Wii U and 3DS, but there is much room for improvement. We need a user account system for a start. Yes we would like lower prices but think most of us would be happy with more games. Come on Nintendo use these games from your back catalogue. Fill the gaps from the lack of third party releases. Make a big thing of it too. It is what makes you different from Microsoft and Sony. N64, Gamecube, more SNES, SEGA etc. How about big third party releases from those systems too.



Deadeyerobbie commented on More C64 Details Emerge - Keyboard Input, Load...:

Very few games used more than a few buttons on the keyboard when the joystick was used. These keys could be mapped to buttons on the classic Controller, or GC Pad. Games like Gunship would need a virtual keyboard or usb keyboard. Lets hope all the options are there to use. Being on Turrican and Turrican 2



Deadeyerobbie commented on Super Metroid:

I had never played this before, but i had heard so many great things about it i had to download it. Brillant. This game is huge and first time round if you are like me and have to collect all the power ups, you will spend 20+ hours. All time well spend. This is right up there as one of the best run & gun side scrollers. (almost as good as Turrican 2 on the amiga).



Deadeyerobbie commented on Super Turrican:

I still play both Turrican 1 and 2 on my amiga. If this is half as good, it will be a must download. Please big N, release this and super turrican 2 soon.



Deadeyerobbie commented on Super Mario 64:

The best game on the N64 (thats saying something with the likes of Goldeneye and Zelda O of T). Not too differcult to complete, but to get the full 120 stars, that will take you a while.
On a side note please Big N, release a wii compatible N64 controller. This game (like alot of N64 games) was built around the N64 controller. The classic & gamecube controllers are fine, but just don't feel right.



Deadeyerobbie commented on Mario Kart 64:

The best multiplayer mario kart there is. There is nothing better than getting reveage in battle mode as the bomb.
