Extremist commented on LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham:

@creeprtrainer52 They are repetitive, but not crap! For younger gamers (I've got 2 boys) they are great. And they are also fun for parents to play with their kids. And some, like Lego City on WiiU, are even great fun for adults on their own. ;)

"most Pokémaniacs share the dream of one day being able to play a full Pokémon adventure on a big screen"

Just plug your PC into your TV and you can play ANY Pokemon game on TV through emulators... Or on your PC screen if you don't have TV out.

Hopefully, us SketchPad owners will get a discount!

And the delay is probably Nintendo working on some insane way to stop people from sharing "unfriendly" content. ;-)

Also, if I'm gonna put more money into this app, it had better get some export-options like "save to SD" or "mail to..."!

Extremist commented on Video: The Top 10 Mario Platformers, As Select...:

@Kirk: Not saying it's flawed in any particular way. I'm just saying the retro factor counts a LOT for people who grew up with the classics. If all Mario-games were released for the first time tomorrow as brand new games - looking, playing and sounding exactly as they were it their time - no way would SMB get as high as 10th place.

But again, my opinion and I think I'll leave it at that! :-)

@Kirk: Well, that's where we'll have to agree to disagree... :-) I mean, not many people today will pick up Super Mario Bros for the first time and agree it's "basically flawless". Myself, I can only play it for max 30 mins before it's enough for a couple of weeks/months...

But again, it's just my opinion, and I respect others' may differ! :-P

As always, blinded by retro glasses. ;-)

I mean, I LOVE classic Mario, but for instance saying the original Mario Bros. game is a "better" game than, say New Super Mario Bros.1 + 2 is just stupid. It might have been a more important game in it's time than NSMB2 was when it came out, but now it's time has passed.

Same goes, partly, for Super Mario World. The only one of the "classics" that can still be considered a great game compared to modern games is Mario 64. That's my opinion anyways. :-)

Extremist commented on Bayonetta 2 Falls From UK Charts After One Week:

The same thing as always; People complain about lack of adult & 3rd party games - and when they appear, no-one buys them. Just accept that Nintendo-produced games + eShop indies are what we'll have on WiiU and be satisfied - I am... :-)

Buy a PS4 or PC for the other stuff. (Yeah, XB1 left out on purpose ;-) )

Extremist commented on Former President Of Silicon Knights Announces ...:

People "demanding" this should be on WiiU are abit like those people demanding Bayonetta 2 on PS4 / XBox1. It's a lost cause.

Devs must go where the money is, and right now it's NOT on WiiU. If this thing happens at all, it'll be on PC and/or Sony/MS consoles first. There's no reason at all this should be on WiiU, even though the "spiritual successor" was a Gamecube game.

Also, people keep asking for more adult / harcore etc games on WiiU, but the thing is - you guys don't buy them! (And neither do I - but I'm happy with just Nintendo produced games :-) The other stuff I get on PS3 (soon PS4) or PC.)

Extremist commented on Nintendo 64x64: Bangai-O:

@SahashraLA It's released on the N64 so it's a N64 game. And as long as it's one of the 64 best games on the N64, it belongs on the list. Saying anything else is ridiculous. :-)

Oh, and wasn't the Dreamcast some obscure console that only fanbois remeber that made a once-great console-producer close down it's console-division? That would make the N64 version more important, no? ;-)

@WalupeachyTime Because Pac-Man and Space Invaders are thought of as singular games in the minds of non-gamers but Sonic and Mario are recognized as characters from a series of games?

Because only the "original" Pac-Man and Space Invaders are iconic like Sonic and Mario?

Because... who cares!? Didn't seem odd to me. ;-)

@Don Would YOU prefer Super Mario Bros GBC, Brain Age DS and Game & Watch Gallery 3 over the 3 GBA Castlevanias? Crap games are no comfort for missing out on classic awesomeness!

I've played SMB GBC and Brain Age like ONCE each, might as well delete them to save some MBs. And even though I loved my 2-screen Donkey Kong when it was new, I'll never buy a G&W game/collection these days. They're fun for like 30 secs then you play something else... :P

I looked up all the games on the list on YouTube before reading the article, and Cannon Dancer and Charlie Ninja were the ones I noted to test in an emu. There rest were rather meh...

Would love to have them on WiiU as nothing beats playing classics on Nintendo consoles. :D

Extremist commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

I've been back and forth on this one, but I won't get it now... Too bad Miyamoto made them stop developing a Zelda-game with Warriors elements, that would've been much more appealing (to me) than the other way around. Started hating the Warriors-series after 5 minutes of Dynasty Warriors 2 on PS2... :-)

Extremist commented on Hands On: Exploring the Four New Tables of Zen...:

Does anyone know how the WiiU-tables compare to PS3? Do they have higher resolution? I've got ALL tables up to Walking Dead on PS3, but now I'm considering starting to buy the WiiU tables instead. Too bad I can't move my entire collection from PS3 to WiiU. :-(

And yeah, Nintendo-themed tables in Zen 2 would be AWESOME!

Bergsala is a crap distributor and there's practically 0 Nintendo-presence in stores / media here in Norway. Can't see why we can't get Club Nintendo in Scandinavia too. Bergsala blames Nintendo on their pages but I don't know...

Extremist commented on Nintendo Download: 11th September (Europe):

Will get Teslagrad, both Oracle Of... games, Super Mario Ball, Links Awakening and the Wooden Sen'Sey demo. Got Link to the Past & Minish Cap already, otherwise I'd get them too. Now THIS is a good week Nintendo!

Extremist commented on Review: Tappingo 2 (3DS eShop):

Will get this the day it launches in Europe. These small eShop games are so cheap that I insta-buy them all if they get a good score just to support Nintendo/devs! :-D

Extremist commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Flipped The Tea Table with Hy...:

Too bad, wondered who made that bad (IMHO) decision. I would rather have a Zelda game with Warriors elements than the other way around. Probably will get the game either way, but a more typical Zelda game with dungeons and exploring AND huge battle scenes would be an insta-buy for me. But... can't always get what you want I guess... :-/

Extremist commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

@IxC Well, you got ONE thing right... you're sad! ;-)

Seriously though, to me all your arguments seems to boil down to not being able to buy the DLC on the future retro Wii U in 10+ years... You really think that's gonna be a big concern for anyone? Plus it'll probably be available digitally on the eShop equivalent WITH all content, don't you think!?

Anyways, as countless others have said, if you don't like it - don't buy it! Your retail game is COMPLETE, this is just EXTRA stuff!

@Legromancer luke88 concurred with G0dlike that it was £11 well spent. That means he agrees, so yes - he thinks it's great. Also "half the vanillas game content"... I get what you're trying to say, but you're not quite there. ;-)

Ok, flame on! :-)

Oh, and this is GREAT STUFF, Nintendo!!!
