DualWielding commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Ability to Charm You...:

the problem is Nintendo is not marketing to kids, it is marketing to parents... Nintendo is still operating upon the premise that the nature state of things is for kids to want a video game console and that what you need to do is convince parents who think video games are the devil that video games are safe for their children to play...... this may have been how things were in the 80s but that premise is now very outdated... However Nintendo has failed ro realize that



DualWielding commented on Inquisitive Gamers Stumble Across Potential eS...:

@scamander but your NNID is linked to the console so same thing...... Problem is this: if your console is lost or stolen or not working you cannot transfer software to a different one without going through Nintendo's customer service.... that's just not acceptable and people need to stop defending this anti-consumer practice



DualWielding commented on Inquisitive Gamers Stumble Across Potential eS...:


The 'Contacting Nintendo' part is what's wrong about it..... you don't Need to contact, Sony, or Microsoft, or Apple, or Google or Valve, for transfering your stuff to a different hardware so why should you need to contact Nintendo..... it's not an issue for those in the U.S. but its a big issue for those of us who live in smaller countries where Nintendo has no offices



DualWielding commented on Feature: The Nintendo 64 Controller and the Ri...:

N64 controller sucked really bad, that's where Nintendo loss me as a customer after I had grown with NES and SNES.... saw the picture of the N64 in gamepro (remember that) and said "How am I supposed to play Street Fighter with that?" then saw the Playstation with a familar looking controller and jumped ship.......



DualWielding commented on Nintendo UK Outlines September's Dazzling Zeld...:


Agreed, Nintendo discounts are really blah, I've never seen a single Nintendo sale that makes me buy a game because the deal was too good to pass, on PSN I have bought more games that I have time to play just because the deals are so good (and yes Steam deals are even better)



DualWielding commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

I really can't think of a justification for that tiny right analog, looks ridculous and its a bit unfair for 3DS owners that some games won't be playable unless you upgrade that goes against the nature of consoles



DualWielding commented on Nintendo Download: 28th August (North America):

Finally!!! Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright.... the sad thing is that that's one of two games that sold me on the 3DS (the other being KH3D) but after all this wait the excitement has kinda waned... still buying and downloading right away thought, just to help ensure the localization of future AA installments



DualWielding commented on Nintendo's Unity Presentation Confirms Critica...:

I think the reason the 3DS is popular with women is because the thing is not pocket friendly but fits perfectly in a purse.. I know is a bit sexist and that not all women carry purses but that's my experience, I only use my 3DS at home but all women I know who own one carry it everywhere in their purses even if they don't use it



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

I don't have a Wii U and dont' care about Mario Kart but fair is fair, the 11.99 pack is one of the best value for money I've seen in a DLC offering from any company and a huge step up from the rip offs Nintendo tried to pull off with Fire Emblem and NSMB2



DualWielding commented on Talking Point: A Virtual Console Revival Could...:

The prices are high but the main problem is that Nintendo never has good sales, I wouldn't mind if they initially offer a NES game at $5.00 to milk the hardcore if I knew I'll be able to pick it up for $0.99 a few months later, but no, Nintendo think $3.89 for NES game its sale
