Finntendo commented on The GameCube is 13 Years Old:

I got my black GC from my sister, who had bought it for only MKDD. So MKDD is very special. And then I got Soul Calibur 2, awesomeness. For long I searched for Wind Waker but the price was insane, even when used. Then I locally found a place that was selling WW bundle + 2 used games + memorycard for 80e. (WW alon was 50-60e). So I bought it, it had no memory card, I complained and the owners (not really knowing so much about that stuff) finally gave me a chance to pick one of the "new" games instead. Of course I had my eye on Four Swords! (I saw it when I picked up the bundle). So, with 80e I got WW and 4S and sold the console for 45e :P

Erm so... I never managed to build hge library with GC, still would like some games for it. But I guess I almost knew this was coming, since on Sat I digged GC out to the open and played Double Dash with my husband :D

And the Wind Waker. Made me so happy.



Finntendo commented on North America is Getting the Limited Edition o...:


Well, in euroworld, found LE only 10e more expensive than just the game.
But I must admit selling LE game like this is ...absolutley stupid. It is - like someone said - in Europe, so much "NoE" goes on "only for UK residents only".

French Amazon still has these btw. And in Finland there was a few places that sold these (and were pre-ordered fast).



Finntendo commented on Bayonetta 2 Casting Its Spell In Europe On Oct...:


Oh I know that. And that's what I pre-ordered. Not starting to fight for 15k copies edition :P But "special edition" is how you find that basic two-disc version. And that LE probably won't shop up in Finnish sites.

This is sometimes bit confusing, all the Special editions and Limited editions going around... :D



Finntendo commented on Bayonetta 2 Casting Its Spell In Europe On Oct...:

Awww, and just before I landed here on NL this morning, I pre-ordered that special edition from Finnish store for 47e.

I've been ordering special editions lately (like theatrhtyhm curtain call, since the price wasn't much different than just the game in here) but since I paid this advance I don't think I bother to cancel and go for that really special edition.

I DID miss Hyrule Warriors LE, pre-ordred full everywhere I looked :/

I hope these would hit US as well, NOE has been doing kickass job with SEs lately :o



Finntendo commented on Feature: Introducing The New Challengers in Su...:

Wakka wakka wakka wakka...

Eh no, Wii Fit Trainer! ...and Shulk of course.

I am still seriosly thinking that instead of Pac-Man (even he is cool) Bandai Namco should have given Yoshimitsu to the game. I could almost see him doing his katana-riding move on Mario.

Greninja is meh for me, since I've never played Pokemon, don't care and probably never will :P

And this arctice here reminds me again that need to buy that new controller...



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Download: 4th September (Europe):


Okay cool. So actually eShop price is similar to physical disc :D

And this time I'll so buy OoA and OoS for 3ds.

OoT 3D is tempting, but I do have original and Master Quest so... :P But it's such a great game that I don't think owning 3 versions is a problem (don't tell my husband)



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Download: 4th September (Europe):

So what is this talk about 10% discount of HW? How much it will be priced on eShop? 49.90e? I started to doubt pre-ordering since I missed the LE . In Finland it seems to be from 48e to 60e. Ordering from UK would save a few euros even with postage.

Yeah, counting euros here :D



Finntendo commented on Watch Dogs Will be the Only "Mature" Ubisoft G...:

I like Ubi games. I watch vids on youtube about all the funny glitches their games have and it's cool to see those on your own while playing. Because glitches are the thing that Ninty's own games are missing :/

To be serious, releasing games later than to the other consoles doesn't really help the selling....



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Download: 14th August (Europe):


Yup, I noticed this on Christmas while I tried to download RE:R :D Thankfully local store and 30% off everything between Christmas and New Year and hubby bought external drive before the offer ended :P

I think it's the only time I've yelled at my console and Ninty.



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Download: 14th August (Europe):


Well, the external drives aren't that expensive. I bought my 1TB WD Elements for 78e for WiiU. There it sits, quietly and ready for the games.
The crappy thing for the games are that you cannot buy and then download later, you cannot buy a big game if you don't have the space.

So Ubi is having a sale again. Too bad I own AV 3 and 4, ZombiU and Rayman Legends. Legends is such a great game!

Also, Child of Light - it's just wonderful!

(ps. lower the price of Ken's Rage!)



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

Umm, you do realise that they won't be translating to every European language? But oh the big ones: German, Spanish, French, Italian.. don't know about Russian.
But I'll wait. Could bribe hubby to buy it on Steam but he'd never let me stay on his PC so long that I could actually play it..

It's amazing how well we played games as a kid even everything has always been in English and we start studing it on 3rd grade. Oh well, back in SNES days the instruction booklet was in Finnish. Or at least a printed paper with some instructions (like F-Zero GX :D ).

Yet my coffee machine is even harder to maintain, since the only piece of instruction I have is in German (lol, studied that for 7yrs and all I can do is order a beer and count numbers.. )



Finntendo commented on Play: It's The Second Nintendo Life Community ...:

^^ I have one win, then a few better and then most between 5th and 12th,

I actually had play one Royal Raceway while talkin on the phone with mom :P

So that's for me, 32 races and 213 points.

felt bit sad losing to a Swede for those few races we drove together :P



Finntendo commented on Play: Time for Another Nintendo Life Community...:

Oh this time is so much better for me. (2pm my time).. Except we do have Nintendo of Finland race between 6pm and 8pm :P

now just have to think shall I drive with Roy or Lemmy... hmm. And I still cannot drive last curve of Rainbow Road without going out of the track.



Finntendo commented on Guide: The Biggest Wii U and 3DS eShop Games C...:

Okay, someone explain to me what's the problem releasing Shovel Knight in Europe? What's their excuse..first they push the date and then they push european release even further.

But there are few others games to consider.. and been adding money to my card that I use adding money to eShop (my main doesn¨t work because Electron and Ninty really should put some kind of warning that it doesn't work)



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Download: 12th June (Europe):


And "American Football" - and they use their feet...? To running... oh yes, that's football (and occasionally for kicking) :P

Still no drop for Ken's Rage.

ACIV - one online retailer here sold it for 21e already during the spring so I got it then already.



Finntendo commented on Play: Mario Kart 8 in the NLife Community GP -...:

And now that my races were going better (I actually was 3rd and 2nd instead of 10th), the system freezes. Maybe this is sign to go to work. If we do these GPs more, could we start a few hours earlier :P

And I really need to drive offline GPs with 150cc :P But it's s much more fun with real people since they do the crazy stuff like me!



Finntendo commented on Play: Mario Kart 8 in the NLife Community GP -...:

No tää on kasaritalo, et kyl mä kärväytin intenon sarjassa "ei se vielä niin lähelle lyöny" niin en kuituboksin kaa kyl ala kokeileen. Ja tulostimen kärväytin, jossa faksi.
Mut mukava et muitakin finskejä täällä ;)
(don¨t worry, just talking about electronics and t-storms)

Oh, another communication error so this probably tells me to head to bed. Try to play some in the morning (hopefully it rains so I don't have to go outdoors :P ) Sande K I am if someone sees me.



Finntendo commented on Play: Mario Kart 8 in the NLife Community GP -...:

Well I've fried one router because of t-storm so I am not testing with my 500e routerorwhateveritisthatgivesmeinternet - even I've tried to protect everything better.

I am btw the one with Finnish flag ;) (not many there online



Finntendo commented on Play: Mario Kart 8 in the NLife Community GP -...:

Awwwwwwwwwww... I have to head to sleep now and work at 6am and back to house at 9 but I should continue with work before it gets too hot (maybe use of "breakfast" gives me excuse to play)

Connection errors are annoying, tho not so regular.



Finntendo commented on Feature: Nintendo Moments You Never Saw Coming:

It's amazing how well Nintendo can keep stuff from the audience. Like LBW - no buzz and then at one Direct, they slap us with it and people go "oooooooooooo, what is this and what they are eating at Nintendo HQ!?"

So who knows wha they'll have for us.

As for Wii - it also created all new series on injuries that doctors saw. Terms like "wii-knee" "wii-elbow" "wii-shoulder" "wii-wrist" started to be familiar.
I suffered from horrible wii-shoulder after playing Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 - I had to take a break for 2 weeks and at work it hurted so much.

And people were LAUGHING when I said, why my left shoulder hurts so much that I cannot lift my arm.



Finntendo commented on Video: Watch Us Unbox The Mario Kart 8 Limited...:

Stupid, stupid me. "the others" have it already and I don't. I preordered it from UK months ago, on WED I realised there is actually place in my country that offers it with reasonable price. So I ordered it, Thursday was a holiday so no moving and it was sent yesterday. Boo, have to wait until Monday. And of course I chose to pick it up and not get delivered home (saved few euros there) and with the same effort, I could have just drove to store yesterday and check if they had it. Which they probably do. And if only I had ordered it on Tue or Mon, I'd have it already.
The problem with Monday is that I really don't have much time to play during the week.

So sad me, I played MK Wii last night. Once again he picked Turbo Blooper and during the 2nd race he started complaining how crappy it is and stopped trying....



Finntendo commented on Mario Kart 8 Club Nintendo Promotion Offers a ...:


I was wondering the same (I live in Finland with UK CN account) and been registering my points. Of course the only reason for it has been WiiPoints. Even it feels silly nowadays.

Anyways, I think it might work (I've preordered mine from UK, since I buy almost 95% of my games there). If so, there will be some serious thinking between MH3U, W101 aaand Sonic..and yes, Pikmin 3. Even Sonic is cheapest - that's why MH3U is ahead since it is keeping its price better than others (and I already have Party U, NSMBWU, WW and NL.

MH3U even tho I lost interest with MH3 somewhere along the Volcano Quests (The last memory is thos stupid ants poisoning me, while getting the hot stones)



Finntendo commented on Nintendo's Bill Trinen Discusses Localising To...:

I watched the 11min direct and what did I just see! :D Damn I had to laugh... very japanese I must say.

Anyways, fun to live in small country with strange language. Have to play in English (the way it's always been). Being 6 and playing videogames without understanding a world - still played thru those. Of course back in the NES/SNES days, instructions were in Finnish, so you'd know what buttons to push.



Finntendo commented on Feature: Bandai Namco Characters We'd Love to ...:


Exactly! I mean how great it would be? Yoshimitsu has such a great moves and would fit perfectly to that group. (I must admit, everytime I start failing in games including Yoshimitsu - I just change back to him and everything is good again)... namunamunamunamunamuu...



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Download: 20th March (North America):


...Would be so cool when my HK fan friend comes by, would be so cool to play this.
....and if I bought my husband a few new Batman comics, maybe he'd play this with me :D
