Emblem commented on Orders Open For Xbox One in China as Nintendo ...:

China is way too unpredictable as a video games market to make any real analysis of how well this gens consoles will actually work. Despite a massive population, entertainment revenue is not that high in China mainly due to rampant piracy, low income and restricted media content. I'm really interested to see how China's official console scene shapes up. At the moment China is dominated by PC and mobile games which are both easily accessible and cheap.



Emblem commented on Nintendo Download: 31st July (Europe):

@MAB While I think its crazy to stick with just a 3DS this gen (unless people also have a gaming PC). The 3DS has an awesome backlog and a very healthy future line up ahead of it so if you was being serious about the support comment you need to get yourself some upto date info. If you were kidding well just ignore :) .

Off head just this year the 3DS has Pokemon R/S, Smash4, Theatrhythem2, Fantasy life, Adventure time SNK, Tenkai Knights, Fifa 2015, Lego Ninjadriods, Persona Q, Skylanders, Layton Vs Ace, Lego Batman 3, Sonic Boom, Azure Gunvolt, Harvestmoon, Treasurenaughts, Shantae, SMT4 (EU) and i'm sure i'd find more if I bothered to Google. I don't know the eshop schedule but if we get more gems like Siesta Fiesta mixed in that will be an added bonus.

Trust me the 3DS has the healthiest amount of upcoming support of all the consoles barring the PS4 right now.



Emblem commented on Nintendo Download: 31st July (Europe):

Nothing for me this week, been playing Siesta Fiesta and Starfox3D on the commute to work and I lent my Wii U to my brother yesterday anyway. PSN+ free August games go live soon and were also getting a summer sale this week so I think I can live without my Wii U for a few weeks.



Emblem commented on Live: The Nintendo Gaming Lounge at San Diego ...:

I found it strange NL didn't cover day 1. The technical difficulties didn't seem to affect the viewers, around 30k average.

It made me appreate how amazing E3 Treehouse was paced and run, if E3 had the same issues as last night it would not have proved so popular and we may not have seen them again.



Emblem commented on Feature: Where Are The Super Nintendo 3D Class...:

The VC is a lot less profitable then some people like to make out, hence the lack of serious investment. after its initial start up boom on Wii. A quick look at Nintendo's digital sales since the VC was introduced will give a rough profit ball park, of course only Nintendo know how much profit each VC game makes but i'm willing to bet its no where as high as people think it is.



Emblem commented on Talking Point: The Wii U eShop is Raising Toug...:

Quality control is about functioning games not about how much fun you think they are. As long as they don't brake your hardware, have acceptable content and are not buggy messes they should be allowed on the store.

99 people might hate games like The Letter but if 1 person likes it and is satisfied with the purchase does it not deserve at least to be sold?

There are plenty of review sites that will give reviews and plenty of Lets Plays so people know what their getting into. Making a purchase is a choice and its up to buyers to make sure that choice is an informed one.

TL DR; Popular opinion is not quality control.



Emblem commented on Latest Wii U System Update Allows Console To C...:

@I-love-tea That's not how it works, once your NNID is on a new Wii U all purchases made with that NNID can be re-downloaded. I'm on my second Wii U (burglary) and I only had to contact Nintendo to ask them to remove my NNID from my old WII U. Once insurence replaced my Wii U I simply went to the eshop, went to 'my downloads' and re-downloaded them all. This happened around the time Pikmin 3 came out so they have had this option since at least then.



Emblem commented on Screenshots Disabled in Comic Workshop Miivers...:

@rjejr The main function of the game is to create comics then either print them via SD card, send to your friends or upload to external sites. You can still do all these things.
I have a feeling most people complaining do not have the game or know how this even works.

1. This game was designed without Miiverse in mind and it was added later in development.
2. You can add photos to your comics, this opened the door to add anything onto a community for all ages. Nudity, pornography, violence you name it.
3. Since comics were not originally meant to be displayed publicly this wasn't a problem.
4. People being people posted stuff they shouldn't have and since the feature cannot distinguish this images, the feature has been locked until they find a work around.



Emblem commented on Screenshots Disabled in Comic Workshop Miivers...:

People were posting pictures both normal (still agai nst EULA) and inappropriate, thus the function was removed as the app itself couldn't distinguish pictures from other comic images. Until it can the service will be offline.

People are really getting mad at this? Its the few spoiling it for the many and its not the devs or Nintendo's fault people choose to be irresponsible. Hopfully the Devs will amend the system soon so comic screens can be posted again.



Emblem commented on Yacht Club Games Gives a Shovel Knight Localis...:

If its not hitting before October i don't think i'll be getting it any time soon due to the sheer amount of Wii U,PS4,3DS and PC games i currently have pre-ordered.

I anticipate it will be 75% off in the Winter Steam sale but i'd really prefer to play this type of game on the gamepad.



Emblem commented on Nintendo Dominates List of Top-Selling Games i...:

@ToxieDogg Play it to the end, it has the best use of background and foreground mechanics to date and the min games are awesome. Its a solid Kirby game that reaffirms what's great about the series. It doesn't innovate a great deal but it doesn't need to in order to be a great game. Just my 2 cents.



Emblem commented on Golden Sun: The Lost Age Hitting Japanese Wii ...:

@Nintenjoe64 Don't think that will ever happen, even the best rom emulators have stability, bug, corruption issues and frequent updates. VC is flawless in comparrison so i'd prefer they stick to their guns.

I'd be more interested in them creating a Dolphin like Wii upscaler so I can play my Wii games in HD like I can on my PC.



Emblem commented on Tekken 7 Revealed At Evo 2014, Platforms Uncon...:

We got the definitive version of the best Tekken in the last decade so people should be happy. I love my Wii U but i'll be picking up Tekken 7 on my PS4 for certain, i can't think of anything the Wii U could offer to sway my decision.



Emblem commented on Nintendo Download: 17th July (Europe):

@Starwolf_UK Explain please? Isnt the 3DS region locked anyway? You also can't download games or demos without a NNID right? What gets locked?

I have 1 linked (UK) and 1 unlinked 3ds (JPN) in the post from Play Asia so im genuinely interested.



Emblem commented on Rayman Trophy Revealed For Super Smash Bros. O...:

Yuk Raymans design is terrible, I have faith that they wouldn't waste a slot on him when they have better options.

Plus the leak hasn't been wrong yet so its likley Shulk, Chrom or Chours men. Hoping for a surprise character though myself.



Emblem commented on Wii U Version Of Project CARS Drops To The Bac...:

@TICGS I cant imagine anyone with an X1 getting this over Horizon 2 or anyone with a PS4 getting this over Drive club or The Crew.

Still its worth noting that this is being distributed by Bamco who are also working on Wii U Smash. Maybe they already know the actual release date and are worried about losing sales?



Emblem commented on New Official Hyrule Warriors Screens Show Off ...:

@yemsols Yeah the Empires off-shoots are also my best Warriors games, creating characters and seeing them pop up in your world is awesome while you forge your own kingdom or serve someones else.

@Chubblings Your correct no release announced for the west yet, i'd guess 6-8 months after the Japanese release. No doubt it will be awesome when it arrives though :) .



Emblem commented on Interview: Pro Smash Competitors Armada & Mew2...:

40mins of play is abit low to form a real opinion when you have played previous instalments for 1000s of hours. I'd prefer to hear what they have to say after at least a few hours or a day.

For me atleast what the E3 Smash tourney guys and gals have said hold alot more weight.



Emblem commented on Stand-Alone Kirby Fighters And DeDeDe's Drum D...:

I picked up Kirby 3D dispite NL's imo inaccurate review. the base versions of these games are actually fleshed out quite well and are awesome fun. If these DLs come to the west I'll certainly be picking up Kirby Fighters Z.
