Extremist commented on Mitchell Corp Is Keen To Bring Strider's Spiri...:

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!



Extremist commented on Scandinavian Gamers Will be Included in the Hy...:

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!



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

@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!!!



Extremist commented on Talking Point: Deconstructing Nintendo's Retai...:

I've got Luigi U and both NES Remixes, but if this trend continues I will have be more sceptical about buying Nintendo eShop-releases on day 1 as I prefer physical copies. And I don't think that's the way to go for Nintendo.



Extremist commented on Mario Kart 8 Still Competing in Nordic Region ...:

In the Nordic countries we got a terrible Nintendo-agency in Bergsala AB. There's practically zero Nintendo-presence compared to Sony and Microsoft. Add to this we haven't even got Club Nintendo. They blame this on the fact that the physical Club Nintendo magazine was to expensive to produce in the 80s!!! Don't know why Nintendo haven't replaced this zero-effort company decades ago!



Extremist commented on Yumi's Odd Odyssey Hooks In Permanent Price Dr...:

I'm getting this one, but I'm waiting for a MUCH lower price tag. This isn't a game I'll play for months and months, so I'll get it when it's on sale AFTER a perm price drop. It'll just stay on my watch list until that day comes... :)



Extremist commented on Sonic Boom Producer Explains Recent Silence Ov...:

This is day-one purchase for me, no matter what! Gotta support the companies that support my beloved Wii U... ;)

Not much of a Sonic-fan but I got Sonic Lost World anyways. Hopefully Boom will have less "speed". I feel that's the thing that breaks most of the Sonic games - even though it's his signature. It just makes the 3D games... unplayable. You just feel lost in a pinball machine.



Extremist commented on Mario Kart 8 Free Wii U Game Promotion Extende...:

Nintendo here in Scandinavia sucks... According to the official Nintendo site, the lack of Club Nintendo is a Nintendo-decision, not a choice of Bergsala. Great news, though!

Got 7 of them already, have been on the verge of getting Wonderful 101 several times, guess I'll get it now. Yay!



Extremist commented on Talking Point: For Better Or For Worse, The Wi...:

For Better Or For Worse, Wii U users love their Gamepad so can we please stop with these "Should the Gamepad go..."-articles? And yes, for me the Gamepad is a massive success. Love the off-TV play when the kids want to watch TV, when I'm in bed or for playing GBA games on a more suitable screen +++

And I'll be getting ALL the figurines when they finally show up, can't wait... :D



Extremist commented on Review: Putty Squad (3DS):

Is this still coming for WiiU? I'll get the 3DS version (on sale) only if the WiiU version gets (officially) cancelled. It's still listed at coming here on NintendoLife WiiU games list, but System 3 website doesn't mention the WiiU version any more...



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!
