Extremist commented on Two Tribes Development Studio Shuts Down and N...:

Too bad, hope they can turn things around... Toki Tori 2 was one of my biggest dissappointments last year so it's no surprise the sales were low. The game mechanics were great, but the vast overworld / lack of levels made the game feel aimless.



Extremist commented on Nintendo Financial Reports Bring Minor Profit,...:

I can only speak for Norway / Scandinavia where most people don't even KNOW there's a new console from Nintendo! The crappy importer here (Bergsala) don't do ANY advertising etc. Only loyal Nintendo-fans buys WiiU here, most other gamers are waiting for PS4 / XBox One.

The LARGE marked here with money-strong parents aren't aware of the new WiiU and it's possibilities. And we don't even have ClubNintendo here - so there's no incentive to stay loyal and earn points...

I feel Nintendo is too focused on US / Japan, and it's starting to show...



Extremist commented on Wii Party U Can Be Downloaded Digitally Down U...:

Man, Australians and their constant whining... ;-)
Here in Norway RRP on new games usually are US$90-100 - AND we don't have Club Nintendo in all of Scandinavia 'cause the sh*tty Nintendo-partner here (Bergsala) can't be bothered with it...
In fact they never do ANY promotion or anything, can't understand why Nintendo has used them since the 80's...



Extremist commented on Wii Sports Club Takes The Competition Online W...:

So it's $10 each for 5 sports, totalling at $50 - which is a low price for a new WiiU game here in Norway - day 1 insta-buy... :)

>However, the pricing could be cause for concern - buying unlimited access to each sport is going to be expensive.

That's just NintendoLife's cheap way of generating lots of comments - which happens in nearly all articles if you pay attention... ;)



Extremist commented on Developer Interview: Two Tribes Clarifies Toki...:

Bought this on launch after loving the first game. I LOVE the core gameplay, but I hardly ever play it as I feel I just wander aimlessly around the worldmap. Really hate the open world - I feel no sense of what I've completed, what to replay, where to go etc. For me this was a BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD decision - next Two Tribes game is NOT insta-buy, that's for sure!



Extremist commented on Review: Spelunker (3DS eShop / NES):

Used to LOVE this game on the C64 back in the days. Never got very far but always came back for more. Got the PSN-remake on PS3 with all extra DLC. It's a classic, alright. ;)

And yeah, 3/10 is WAY too harsh!



Extremist commented on Review: Star Wars Pinball (Wii U eShop):

Already got all tables for Zen, Zen 2, Marvel & Star Wars Pinball on PS3 - too bad, would trade them in for WiiU-versions if I could. And now I have to continue buying future tables on PS3 also as I want them all accessible in one package.



Extremist commented on Nintendo Blocks 3DS Flashcard With Latest Firm...:

The problem with the 'system updates'-protection is that they (usually) don't add anything new to the firmware required for the games to play. So if you remove the firmware version check from a ROM-file, it'll work just as well on an older firmware.



Extremist commented on Nintendo Aware Of StreetPass Plaza Crash Repor...:

Updated 2x 3DS (one red, one aqua) for my boys and bought all games combo for both and everything went ok. Updated my red 3DS XL, update went ok, but Mii Plaza crashes everytime I try to buy the new games. It crashes even though I'm not connected to internet, so it's a software error, NOT server issue!

Oh, and it's not dangerous in any ways to update, you won't lose anything etc etc. Only problem that occurs is Mii Plaza crashes when you try to enter one on the games in the Mii Plaza Shop.



Extremist commented on Review: Spelunker (Wii U eShop / NES):

I used to love Spelunker on the C64 in the '80s, as did most of my friends. Guess console gamers just couldn't handle the difficulty, as usual! ;)
Got Spelunker HD on PS3 with all the extra DLC. Spelunker is a classic and a 10, at least the C64 one! Dunno about the NES version as I've barely tested it.



Extremist commented on Review: Mighty Switch Force! 2 (3DS eShop):

Side note: I don't understand how they gave this a 7 and the original a 9. If it's more of the same, wouldn't one give it an equal or just a bit off score?

Two different reviewers.

So you're saying this probably would be a 9 with a more old-school (better) oriented reviewer? ;)



Extremist commented on Mutant Mudds Deluxe in Final Preparations for ...:

It's not an 8-bit game since the WiiU is not an 8-bit console - it's a game with a retro look. The graphics might be 8-bit, haven't counted to check if there's more than 256 colors in a level. But I get your point, just nitpicking... ;-)
Wouldn't mind a Mighty Switch Force HD-look though, but that's not gonna happen. I guess they've just tinkered a bit with it to not look too blocky or something on a much larger screen.



Extremist commented on Talking Point: The Next-Gen Console War is Wii...:

Do you really have to publish these speculating Nintendo-is-doomed articles EVERY SINGLE DAY? We'll know when we get there if The WiiU it's a success or not. I bought the system mostly for it's Nintendo titles. If the WiiU fails in a year or two, I'll just get a PS4 - simple as that.



Extremist commented on Konami Won't Rule Out Castlevania: Lords Of Sh...:

@FuriousFrancis: I really want that Castlevania for WiiU. Either way I won't be getting ANY of those RPGs. Simply haven't got the time for them. And I never finish them either. I always get bored of those J-RPGs, they always gets samey and tiresome after some hours play. That's just IMHO - I respect that others love 'em - I just played enough of them on SNES and PSX, guess I'm just getting old. ;)



Extremist commented on Nano Assault EX Blasting Into Europe on 7th March:

I have Nano Assault Neo for WiiU, but never tested Nano Assault on 3DS. This sounds really interesting as all original levels are included. Just wondered if someone could let me know: Are the levels in the original and the WiiU version the same?



Extremist commented on Sony and Kevin Butler Actor Settle Lawsuit Ove...:

I totally get Sony on this one. They've spent tons of money on this and built a recognizable character connected to Sony. Jerry Lambert is free to star in whatever commercials he like, just not for video games since he's so connected with the "Kevin Butler"-character.

He's probably earned a good deal of cash over the years from Sony so it's pretty illoyal starring in a similar role for a competing product/company. And it's obvious Bridgestone/Nintendo wanted to play on this connection with the "Kevin Butler"-character, otherwise they could have chosen any actor on the planet for the role in that commercial.



Extremist commented on Review: Marvel Pinball 3D (3DS eShop):

Stan Lee is the biggest joke in comics ever! Stealing & living off the work of others and giving no credit! It makes me sick everytime someone praises him! Excelsior my a$$!



Extremist commented on Marvel Pinball 3D a Separate eShop Game, not DLC:

>While Zen Studios has released the tables as DLC for Zen Pinball on PlayStation Network, 3DS will get the Marvel tables as a standalone game, not add-on content for Zen Pinball 3D, the studio confirmed.

Huh? Marvel Pinball is a separate game on PSN also, the tables are not DLC for Zen Pinball... Both games got additional tables as DLC though - I got them both with all addons...
