dizzy_boy commented on Talking Point: Mario Kart 8's Diverse DLC Sets...:

I think Doc Louis from Punch out should be added with a boxing ring themed battle zone.
The Blue Falcon and F-Zero track is a welcom, it's highly unlikely that we'll be seeing a full F-Zero game any time soon.
The other thing to note is that I never see anyone complaining about the Namco charecters in the Arcade Mario Kart games, so I don't see the problem with a few non Mario charecters and courses. Just so long that Nintendo keep the balance in favour of the Mario franchise.



dizzy_boy commented on You Can't Count Nintendo Out, Says Activision CEO:

Activision obviously don't look at the eShop ratings, 5 of their games are currently in the top 20, 3 of which are mature rated games. So, it suprises me that Activision are now only supporting the kiddie market.
Tbh though, it's rather dissapointing to have to pay out for an extra console just to play the non Nintendo games.



dizzy_boy commented on Mario Kart 8 Update, Mercedes Karts and DLC Pr...:

I wonder if this will be the start of pre-ordering games on the eShop. It would be some help for smaller devs who might need the extra cash while making their games.
Anyway, I'm glad that the records section has been added, I now know how far away I am from the gold glider.



dizzy_boy commented on Cubemen 2 Hits the Wii U eShop on 4th September:

Not really interested in this game, but the idea of cross platform play is a great idea.
I just wish some other developers would put the effort into their games to do the same. Games like Blops 2 and Ghosts would be far better if the online mode did cross platform.



dizzy_boy commented on Review: Midtown Crazy Race (Wii U eShop):

That looks pretty awefull. Even gamecube era games look better by comparison.
Also, if the crashes towards the end of that clip were deemed the best bits to push the game, I can't see it selling well.



dizzy_boy commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Master System:

I didn't know anybody with a master system, my friends and I were big NES fans.
I remember trying a master system demo console in one of my local shops and I wasn't impressed one bit.



dizzy_boy commented on Satoru Iwata Speaks Of The Need To "Redefine" ...:

With the way the whole video game industry is going, Nintendo needs to branch out to keep the business going.
Only problem is, I don't think the QoL thing is going to be the ssving grace.
I also think that the QoL will be massive in Japan as they seem to be in on the whole healthy living at the moment.



dizzy_boy commented on Microsoft's Ken Lobb: Metroid Prime Wouldn't H...:

I'm fine with Nintendo moving into other areas like the quality of life thing they're looking at. Let that be an internal R&D issue.
But what I don't understand is why on earth they don't get their external devs on to making new entries for their other IP's.
Donkey Kong returns is proof that it can be done. Punch Out wii and kid icarus uprising were two big hits in the hands of the 2nd party devs, and yet it's like they're totally irrelevant.
Miyamoto even admitted that he thought people were bored of F-Zero until somebody out the contrary, which just shows how little time they have for listening, or they just don't care.



dizzy_boy commented on The Wonderful 101 Saving Wallets on Wii U eShop:

@epicdude12302 sd cards only work in Wii mode. You can't download WiiU games to it. You'll need a portable hard drive.
Anyways, I might look into ninja gaiden 3, might get some practice before hyrule warriors comes out.
Also, it's about time some of the retail downloads got reduce considering how long they've been out.
Just a shame EA won't reduce Need for speed, but we all know what d-baggers they are.



dizzy_boy commented on Marty Reminds 3DS Users What Not To Do On Miiv...:

Makes me laugh that you can send friend invites to random wiiu owners, yet you can't make friends with your 3DS. And with the 3DS now not having any means of proper communication, this seems to be a bit of an odd move.

It'll soon shut up all of those idiot share holders wanting Nintendo to make tablet games.
As long as Nintendo are the ones to produce the pad and control the content then it's up to them what they do with their franchises.
