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



Finntendo commented on Review: Ice Hockey (Wii U eShop / NES):

And here I thought you were dissing hockey... I know these look poor nowadays, but when you were a kid... just great.

I have to say never own NES, but NHL95. Probably my most played game. Got blisters, learnt to score a goal without looking tv. Pens for the Cup o/ (still rooting for 'em)



Finntendo commented on Video: The Top 20 Wii U Games So Far - Part Two:

Hmmhmm, I am ashamed to say that I still haven't bought SM3DW. Was tight on money during the release and now I've bought a few other games and try to finish those first.

But what do I have from that list

ZombiU (husband's game)
RE:R (husband's game)
Batman: Arkham City
Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed
Rayman Legends

It's hard to decide.. what I've been playing most? Legends and Sonic racing. As a driving game, it's a kickdonkey game and bit sad that haven't got my husband to play that with me unlike Mario Kart.

Legends just got everything right.

Wind Waker. I loved you on GC and I still love you.

Currently playing Tropical Freeze, been great so far (even I'm still annoyed by Kong's clumsyness)

What should have been there? Injustice yes. I like Tekken, but is it really that special?



Finntendo commented on Nintendo of Europe Confirms Mario Kart 8 Limit...:

I agree, 20£ extra for the shell is bit.. too much. Have to check if your shops offer this with nicer price. For Ganondorf figurine extra money was worth it (even someone earlier here said it's crappy..Agnes statue is cool also).

Hah, I tried to order LBW special edition, my order went thru and they were sending it and oops, we don't have this. So umm, they send me the code for LA the instant I placed my order and a month after... the poster was in my mailbox :P So only thing I was missing was the chest (that was the one I wanted) but oh well.. of course I try to find frames for the poster but those are sooo expensive for A0.

Oh Mario Kart, the ultimate test for the couples. So many times we've started to play excited, then accuses about bad car, then stupid game and finally one of us turns the console off during the race. We've had to make rule with husband that both take same car so no accusations "you have btter" can be made.

But I miss DD's co-op (I was always driving and he throwing items and even with that we got to a fight)

EDIT: Ahhaha, I checked one Finnish webstore that has been selling LE's - oh come on! Normal game 59,90e and LE for 99,99e. Are you kidding me?! Maybe they've just thrown some price there. Oh found another..120e - oh dear lord XDDDDDDD



Finntendo commented on The Next Batman Game Is Arkham Knight, And No,...:

Oh I cannot wait that mr. Eflop gets his hands on MS XBox division and will run it down like he did with Nokia (making crappy decisions and then ex-employer gets to buy it cheap and he gets a kickdonkey position at his old workplace). He has said that MS should get rid of it (seriously).

Origins really ruined my Batman-experience. And if I ever want this, there's still pc.

And Batman isn't for kids. Heh, also GTA isn't for kids, BF and CoD are not for kids and yet you see vids 10yr olds excited when mommy and daddy give 'em GTA5 or hear on vids some 12yr old playing BF (or 'Bäfä' how we Finns call it). It saddens me that yet the gaming society gets bigger and bigger, it's all about blood and guts and killing and slashing etc. over and over again.

I have a feeling that when the NEXT gen comes..MS and SOny has some kind of touchscreen thingie even it's been crap (or so they say) when it's been on WiiU. Nintendo has to think really, really, really hard what to do with the next console. They really need to think of next console already.
Please watch the profanity — TBD



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Download: 6th February (Europe):

Ooo..VLR.. it looks so interesting (maybe my husband doesn´t notice if a new game appears on my 3DS - or our 3ds).

But there's something I've waited for to come down at least 10e - Ken's Rage. How about liiiiiittle pricedrop there.

And how on earth they are so bad with the releases? more, MORE! (okay, I got Unepic and Giana Sisters last week, both so great). And "accidentally" bought Dragon Quest IX while ordering something else online...



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Download: 30th January (Europe):


Never played first Runner, but thankfully this one has three difficulty levels (even on normal it drives you mad more than few times. Oh those stairs!). I bought it last fall and damn it's a great game!

But FINALLY! Giana Sisters o/ (the music of original C64 game is forver in my save file....I mean in my head)

Fit U I got when registered meter and MH3U..well, it's too time consuming and I never finished MH3 so I don't see why to get this one. But it's a great game, but my mood changes and so does the game I play.



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Acknowledges Network Issues and Sugge...:


...yes, I'd like to download RE:R for Wii U, but I guess I have to wait. Whining does nothing, except annoy others. But it does amaze me, why do big upgrades/adds on during the holidays when stress over servers is high anyways? Why not to release those Pokethingies a week later? (I'm sorry, never played Pokemons, so don't really know the fuss). Or Miiverse for 3ds.

Thankfully I downloaded those 1.99 games for WiiU a few days ago and still have Bravely Default to play.



Finntendo commented on Nintendo's UK Store to Release A Wii U Mario M...:


For it me it is selfish. Me me me. I didn't get what others did. Boohoo. anyone who has done electronics shopping knows the price will go down, more or less. It's same with phones, laptops, mp3 players, tablets. They hit the market, prices goes down a bit and then we have new products. It's no different from any game. If you buy game at release for 59.90€ and in few months you see it for 39.99€, do you start to complain you need to get som extra because you bought it on release? Oh, I bought game A on release, it was crap and the price has dropped to 20€, I want something extra! I'd undestand if dramatic price drop would happen fast (in few months 100€ or so) but a year later.. meh.

Yup, bought Wii U at launch, ZombiU bundle. And this whole year I've been so happy with my console. It has been used almost every day. I barely buy anything at launch. I haven't regretted, I knew the price (I had one retailer's tweaked bundle: I ordered ZombiU bundle, but they didn't get those so much so they created their own version: WiiU premium with Nintendoland and ZombiU added to that - price was 412€.) and knew it will probably drop, new bundles will come out, which is very reasonable. And this kind of bundle hitting the stores before christmas - it's amazing. If I didn't have WiiU and lived in UK, would strongly consider this. IMHO, this is what WiiU needs.
(and please do not make X bundle, it will make me cry. WW bundle was hard to take already, same with Zelda 3DS bundle)

(ps. I saw Wii U ad on tv in here! )



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Download: 21st November (Europe):

^oh yes, maybe getting AC4 then. Even AC3 was dropped quite fast (even stores here dropped it, got it for 20€). But I don't understand why the ..the release prices is that high? Well, if they have customers to buy it with that - it's fine.

Oh Rayman Legends! I got it on release (tho had to wait extra since first disc was faulty) and it's amazing game. So much fun and if you liked Origins, you won't be disappointed.

I'm not fond of buying games digital, so LBW yes, but as physical copy. Demos are yay for me! I think there should be much, much more demos.

Still waiting for Fist of the North Star to drop it's prices at least for 10€.



Finntendo commented on Poll: As the PS4 Arrives, What Do You Think of...:


Oh just what you said! I love games, no matter who or on what they are released. But because of a thing called money, N has been my priority. Actually, I liked to play but never had much money to buy games with our insane gamprices (70€) until in past 6 yrs I found the lovely thing called online shopping. And ordering from elsewhere. I'd get PS4, if had the money. They have so many games that are interestng. Xbone - or it's earlier versiois.. nothing. Or if it hs, PS also has them.
I actually bought PS2 THIS year, so I could play PS1 and PS2 games and in a few months I already owned like 10 :P So will probably buy PS3 next, when the prices drop to decent level. Because only thing that might be interesting for other consoles are mostly FPS, but IMHO, the only GOOD way to play those is PC. And that I have for them (I always wonder why someone has the patience to play those on console. I've tried and it's crap compared to superior mouse and keyboard). Besides, the other console games always seem to be buggy :P

To the sales, I think PS4 will win this round, Wii U is there, somewhere, nice and steady. There's no way it would have done the same than Wii. Too bad people don't realise the awesomness of the GamePad. It's an amazing controller. The consoles are like political parties, they have their cycles of ups and downs. And yes, U may be like GC - people realise it's worth much later...

Sorry for the rant

The thing why I like N consoles first is nicely put in this convo with me and my husband
me:" Oh, Arkham origins is released two weeks later for the U"
hubby: "Oh, the time they fix the bugs that the other versions have?"
Me: "Exactly"



Finntendo commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Wo...:

Ah, LTTP being my all time favourite, I've waited this so long..since we saw the first bits, My husband promised it for me as a Xmas present :P

My Zeldasense never failing, we were at Berlin, some electronics store, gamingsection, music loud and somewhere...somewhere I heard that theme song. "WAIT, WAIT...THERE'S ZELDAMUSIC COMING FROM SOMEWHERE!!!" so there it was, screen where the N trailers run (he didn't even let me watch it, something about "let's move on, you've seen those online" )



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Issues Full Statement Regarding Uncen...:

and the same time we have tv shows,where kids sing these songs.... HMMMM.

Okay, even I will never use this, but it's N's way to cover its donkey...
it's ll for the stupid parents, y'know, the ones who also save their credit card numbers, passwords and leave their accounts open and then they complain how their little Joe bought DLCs to games etc. for 200€ and blame the manufactorer.
Or the ones that buy GTA for their kids and then are "shocked" about it contents.. hmm, rating didn't ring any bell?
Please watch the profanity — TBD



Finntendo commented on Poll: Is Nintendo's Wii U Advertising and Mark...:


Yes, I can feel your pain. I really don't watch Finnish channels so much, buy I highly doubt there's any ads... but I go thru lot of printed stuff and there's the same problem.. some corner may be Wii U console, but nothing more. If there's a game released to all platforms, Wii U barely is mentioned. And yes, I think some of the problem is, people think it's just some upgrade for Wii, not a seperate console.
In Finland, Bergsala should buy ad from backcover of Donald Duck comic, would probably reach the highest possible (it's the most read magazine that is published weekly and is read by over 1mil Finns in a week..pretty good since there's only 5,4mil of us) audience. I mean, Nightwish advertises their albums (or at least has, TH being ultimate DD fan)
So for every country they should find a channel like this, what would reach the highest amount of people.



Finntendo commented on Video: Experts Believed Nintendo Was In Troubl...:


yet here 1990s recession was horrible but we learnt from it nd 2008 didn't hit so bad. But our small nation doesn't really make difference in this case.

But the gaming has changed so much. Back then, you got one game and played it until next christmas when you got the next game. Now it's game here and game there, buybuybuy. Gaming was for children, now it's for the whole family. Those who grew up with NES are still plaiying and their kids are the next gen.
They all have their ups and downs, just like political parties ;)

But oh my dear Nintendo, you won't fall! <3



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


Bergsala is also here importer, nowadays but earlier (AMO) wasn't any better. Probably only info you'll get is googling Nintendo. And don't get me started on ClubNintendo. How hard it could be to create one to apply Finland, Sweden, Norway, Iceland and Denmark? especially know when we all probably have same importer. yes, 5 small countries but still potential. No adds, no nothing. Console adds you MAY see at ads but otherwise.. you go to stores, there's a small section for N games and loads and loads and loads game for the other consoles. And yet I still meet people, who don't realise there is new console and that WiiU games won't work on Wii :P

For pricing in Finland, of course sometimes you can see nice prices, like WW LE was 55€ at one place, Pikmin3 could be found for 35€ at release. Hah, Expert doesn't have prices anywhere to be seen, you have to ask. Sellerdude thought I was childish, when I said that I probably won't buy something that I don't see how much it is without asking. But what I don't get, they keep badly selling ones at high prices, too. Well ZombiU, Rabbids Land and Nintendoland have come down in many places, last spring one store had AC3, Tekken and bunch of other games for 20€.

But erm.. what was my point.. oh yes. ADVERTISE, ADVERTISE and mostly... ADVERTISE.



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


Ah, a fellow Finn. The pricing is the main reason I rarely buy console games here. Well, I did find Super Mario 3D Land for 19.90. 70€ for the game. It's soon at the same price that dear old SNES games were when I was a child (600mk, yaysies! roughly 100€) And the store that everyone loves ;) GameStop..selliing USED game for 70€.. no matter how little it's been played, it is still used. I feel sorry for everyone, esp moms and dads who haven't discovered online shopping.

The pricing is out of the hand (well, thankfully it's with all the games here).. it all cannot be explained by import and taxes. And the consoleprice itself. One store has sold it for some time in 299, don't know how it's selling.

Holiday season is coming, NOE should really, really do something about the situation.



Finntendo commented on Toon Link Adventuring Onto Smash Bros. Wii U a...:

I'm so sorry, but looks like that brown smoke is coming under Peach's dress... :D

But to Toon Link. Cool. I like WW so much. Even I won't be buying WWHD at release since I have the original game (..tho I highly doubt that price would come down any time never does in games such as Zelda and Mario... unless you find one in supermarket's sale)



Finntendo commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2013 - Aut...:


That's a very good point (yet it's stupid to treat Wii U version that way - I mean leaving online option off. .. not that I'd use it anyways, but still. That was one thing I asked my husband about. Does he want to play online. He said no that he wants Wii U version)



Finntendo commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2013 - Aut...:

^But WW is so kickdonkey game that of course it's anticipated!

I actually bought ACIII because a) it was cheap b) I want to experience those funny bugs that Internet is full (of AC games) because I live mostly in bug-free gaming world - just because Nintendo games are usually bugfree :P
please watch the profanity — TBD



Finntendo commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2013 - Aut...:

I agree, Arkham Origins should be there. The first two were kickdonkey games.

I voted for WW, but in general II'll probably act like Philip J. Fry: "SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!"

Now that Rayman is on it's way, I know I'll be ordering Arkham Origins next (perhaps with Blackgate) since at least it's the game we both will play (after asking my husband does he want to play it on PC or on Wii U). WW yes, but not with that price. Seriosly? Old game and they ask full price for it? 39.90 at least.... but I think DKC TF will also be pre-ordered.. and eventually most of those games :P



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Confirms Limited Edition Wii U Bundle...:

In Finland at least one store has been selling Premium (Nintendoland) for 299€ for some weeks aready ;) And ZombiU bundle for 339€.

In a way it saddens me that I don't get this bundle, since I bought Wii U in release day, but oh well. What joy it has brought me during this year! (except more games would have been nice earlier this year..)

...bu tthe figure would have been great..



Finntendo commented on Review: DuckTales: Remastered (Wii U eShop):

I sometimes think that myself. Sometimes it feels the game sucks if it doesn't include blood and guts.

And people getting frustrated if they don't get everything on the first try.. so annoying.

I really like the game and atm my husband is playing it (he's the one that had original as a kid) now.



Finntendo commented on Review: DuckTales: Remastered (Wii U eShop):


Hah, I've been humming the title all day, watched cartoon from Netflix and downloadded it when eShop updated.And this evening, i sat on couch and started the game, my husband calls (he's away for the night) and I click home button and then again and he just says WHAT WAS THAT MUSIC.. now poor thing have to wait until tomorrow :P

I never had NES but I've played it and since being a Finn, Ducks are kind of our thing (over a million of 5 million people reads Donald Duck comic every week, from magazines published once a week, it has the largest subscription)



Finntendo commented on Giana Sisters: Twisted Dream Coming To Europe ...:

Ohoh! I so remember when I was a kid and played original with my friend with her bigbro's C64!! The music from the beginning comes to my head every time I read name "Giana Sisters". I miss Commodore (Load Error)



Finntendo commented on The Wonderful 101 Demo Coming to Europe Today:


Hah, I so agree. I had SNES when I was kid, games cost about 100€. In release, you got ...two games? F-Zero and SMW? Am I right? Anyways, you got that console with SMW for Christmas.. then you got another game next christmas.. (after the early 90s recession) and you played those whole year. Now it's game overflow and most games are played thru within hours and then thrown in the corner and where's the next game.

Of course then you had no knowledge about games in other parts of the world since there was no internet. Or was very limited. So boohoo, week or two - play something else until the release ;)



Finntendo commented on The Wonderful 101 Demo Coming to Europe Today:

Demo downloading....

And oh I wish in these Directs they'd use subtitles instead of dubbing, like they've done before.. God that was annoying dubbing!
And the game release schedule. I agree it's stupid that NA and Europe gets games in different time (Hey, Wii U was released in NA few weeks before Europe), but I guess they have reasons. Back in the old days, everything was released in NA first and if it was successfull, then in Europe (EarthBound is good example). I guess Xenoblade and Pandora's Tower and Last Story were quite ununsual thay their NA release wasn't sure for looooong time.
But IMHO, we are just different kind of players (Asia-Europe-NA) ;)



Finntendo commented on Rumour: The Wind Waker HD May Have An Addition...:

Board seems to edit posts nicely. But I apologise for my duh-ing, just makes me frustrated when people go on and on about one thing even it's said several times why it cannot be done ;) ( I assume certain people keep reading these Zeldanews).
Ah yes, any additional stuff would improve already great game. If not using those they originally planned, design a few more. Or MQ would be cool.. I actually started MQ for OoT and couldn't even finish Deku tree and then I moved on to next game since I have too much them yet to play (I've slipped from my idea that no new game until the one I'm playing is finished)



Finntendo commented on Pikmin 3 Listed As £39.99 On The Wii U eShop ...:


Yes, but you can still create an account to be located in UK. You can also change your console's country to use these Nintendo Club thingies. But remember that if you change country, your money added is tied to country. (like I have Finland and added money, if I change to UK it will show no money so I have to add it while it's set to UK. When I change back to Finland, the original money added is there, so it doesn't disappear even when changing countries).

Even all this digital sounds interesting (and this offer), I still buy games from where those are the cheapest. That's why it's extremely rare that I bought games from my own country, since it will add taxes and so on, so games here regularry cost 59.90€ or even 69.90€.
But for some reason Pikmin 3 can be found for pre-order for 36€ in Finland ;) (which is cheaper than Amazon's 32£)



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Teases Majora's Mask Remake Again, Again:

This arctice should have that smiley picture of mr. Miyamoto. In a way it's fun how much they can keep stuff to secret about Zelda games and then slap you in the face with the vids (like now with LTTP2).

I am ashamed. I have not finished MM. I once again got stuck in the water temple-ish thingy. And after I'm stuck for a while, I get frustrated and the gaming ends. I was stuck for two months in OoT's Water Temple. It was time before walkthroughs in internet. MQ of that game.... I got stuck in Deku Tree :P TP's watertemple, I search wt for it before even starting. I hate watertemples.. erm.. now back to MM.

It would be great to see remake of MM anyways and now with this hope, I can get my N64 again and actually finish it.



Finntendo commented on Miiverse: Super Metroid - Too Taxing For Today...:

OHMEGEE, I've been stuck like 30secs. I, too, think the problem isn't asking for help/using walkthroughts but not having patience to look. I haven't plaed this one, but Prime I have and it was first I've played and it made me mad already.
It's the same thing when you see product reviews of the games, and someone has given 1 star just because it had some stupid 5min video and they were bored already or they didn't know how to use controls.

I was stuck in OoT for TWO MONTHS IN THAT FRIGGIN' WATER TEMPLE.. until one night, while I was trying to start to sleep, I realised where the door was.... oh the blonde me! Yes, I use walkthroughs nowadays sometimes, when I've tried and tried and I just don't get it. And because of bad experience and my incredible hate towards Water Temples, I searched walkthrough for it when I enterted the watertemple in Zelda TP...

I think my husband still has childhood issues, since his eye gets twitchy every time Battletoads is mentioned somewhere...
