Finntendo commented on Nintendo Maintains Its Vague Rhetoric on amiib...:

Unless in GameStops (there isn't any near me).. the stores don't either have Amiibos or they have only 9 (Mario, Link, DK, Peach, Starfox, Samus, Pikachu, Yoshi - Okay, 8 - I am not sure if I've seen Kirby either.

I went thru the gaming websites and nothing. Especially those four not mentioned (Trainer, Villager, Marth, Kirby).

The store I bought my Link and Yoshi - they must have sold those from their net store, since I cannot find it anymore. So I do hope, when January comes - internet retailers find some in stock and order since I am not getting near any place that I could find Villager. Or Marth.

I wasn't plannig to get these, but damn I just like figures... waa waa waa.



Finntendo commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo 64:

Wait... I just bought F-Zero X few months ago!

I bought N64 used from a friend for 600FIM (about 100e) with four games, three controllers. I hated that you had to buy extra stuff, such as Extension Pack.

Golden Eye, multiplayer and throwing knives.

And of course it gave us also OoT and MM. I never really had money or ways to buy games, since I think GC was already out and I was still a teen and less and less places were selling games here. And I remember those mad days at internet auctions trying to get OoT and finally MM. And Perfect Dark.
V-Rally also gave so much laugh when playing with my sister.

Still have few games to buy, even tho I just bought StarFox64 3D (because found it cheap)

Conrtoller is huge, but after all getting used to it. Different ways to hold it.

Would you like to hear it again? :P



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Dismisses Rumours That The GameCube C...:

Thankfully, seriously, I ordered adapter and two controllers on 15th Nov from French Amazon. When they still had those and the price was ok :P

Has Ninty been afraid that the controllers and adapter won't see or what¨s the problem? If they make one, they must have thought of that there's a market for those.
Same goes with Amiibo.

C'mon Ninty! People are throwing money your way and you screw up your chances not having stuff to sell!

I have to say... I've checked 7 of local markets that sell gaming stuff and only one has had Amiibos - and that one didin¨t have Villager. I just have to order online.... (seems to be in stock)



Finntendo commented on Super Smash Bros. Wii U Basic Bundle Heading f...:


Well, EU (tries) to save its own, since cannot really let one country crash... (cough Greece cough ). I think every western economy was hit 2009-2011 for what started from US.

Anyways, about the bundles. Buy 8GB and external. Buy 32 and external anyways, if you are going to download anything bigger from eShop :P



Finntendo commented on Rumour: Villager, Marth & Wii Fit Trainer amii...:

I'd think Villager, for example, there would be later use. So somewhat I don't believe it. Or they'¨ll be dropped some point but two weeks after release?

My local store where I got Link and Yoshi, it didn't have those three. But Villager I want anyways so I may be ordering online, since there's a store that has free shipping.



Finntendo commented on Rumour: Has Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem B...:

I think Ninty is pretty good for shutting up and then it slaps us with the data and all and oh, this will be released in 6 months (MM for example. And I think LBW came out of nowhere...for me at least).

But I can imagine difference between those two developers.

And yes Ninty. Now that FE:A gave HUGE boost to FE series, remake of PoR (and maybe RD) thank you.

..I did manage to get RD when it was still available and reasnoable place but stupid me didin't get the PoR.



Finntendo commented on Weirdness: Legless Peach amiibo Now Up For Sale:


With shipping, I guess you cannot get lower than that Anttila price. Besides, Anttila (at least the one near me) got only Link, Starfox, Pikachu, Yoshi, Peach, DK, Mario (wasn't there more released?)

Local Prisma had no Amiibos, Gigantti I don't even bother anymore (19e seems to be, my nearest two doesn't even sell any gaming stuff anymore). My local stores seem to hate Ninty.

If you order something else from other country, then you may get some cheaper (like French Amazon)



Finntendo commented on PDP GameCube-Style Wired Fight Pads for Donkey...:

I think Yoshi looked cool and so does Link, but. I have two original GCs (wavebird and the original black) and managed to order two more before out of stock (well, I hope those are arriving) or price going up. Bit mad at myself that didn¨t buy those original, white ones before the huge fuzz...

Oh yea. Had 3rd party controller for GC and it wasn't that good and ended up not working.

As for best ever...GC is good. 360 is great (hubby uses it for PC) and WiiU pro is pretty much similar, which is great - especially compared to Wii's CCP.



Finntendo commented on The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses...:


Ah yes, it's mad. Average here is 7.03usd/gallon for gasoline and diesel 6.53usd/gallon. I drive diesel and pay 600e/yr tax for that (while those using gasoline pay about 60e/yr).,
And there is no such a thing that going down. News that price will go up, they'll go up but do those get down ..?Oh no.

I guess I can consider this as me few days spring holiday and actually fly and stay couple nights. (I tried give hubby and option that we take ferry from Vaasa to Umeå and then train or soemthing to Stockholm but he wasn't happy about that difficult route :P )



Finntendo commented on The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses...:

If it really is 6th Apri, it's doggeypoopsiepoopsie since it's Easter Monday. I mean, I¨'ll be there more than that day and if Sweden is still Sweden, everything is closed :P

  • -- whaaat? Your bars are not open during the week? In Finland every day is good day to go to a bar — *

What a silly country...



Finntendo commented on Inflated Prices and Limited Stock Cause Frustr...:

My adapter ordered from French Amazon started its journey on Thursday. I ordered two controllers as well and they are bit delayed, said it will be shipping on 6th ( If google translate was right :P )

Even in my tiny country, adapterbundles are sold out - I don't know if stores got those versions at all - maybe they have Amiibo ones (I ordered game online, but in Fri picked up Link Amiibo from store but really didn't pay attention to their stock.)

UK Amazon has price has ogne up for 20 pounds for the controller. With the logo. "Old", white, official costs 24 pounds :P

Italian Amazon seems to have a few adapters and few adapter bundles, with reasonable price (25e adapter, 55e bundle, which is NICE. Tho I don't know their shipping rates)



Finntendo commented on Video: Here's How amiibo Works With Mario Kart...:

Got my Link, they hadn't even priced it yet in store (tho I knew what it's going to cost there, 16.99e) Opened Spinner for HW and tested it on SSB. I'm such a bad player, I kept losing to it (I named it pew pew.. of course wrong choice for swordsman, for Samus perhaps it would have suited better ) :D

...I have to say looking those Amiibos - those looked cool. Samus, Pikachu, StarFox... I don't know if I have to buy some other Amiibo for hubby if he cannot wait for his MegaMan.



Finntendo commented on Video: Join Us For A Look At Hyrule Warriors' ...:

For me, it just looks like he forgot to put his uniform on.... That's just wrong somehow. You enter the dangerous battlefield and you have to run around in shorts and t-shirt.




Finntendo commented on Nintendo Download: 20th November (Europe):

Watch Dogs for WiiU has been ready for month, they just haven't released it. And keeping the price that high, the sales will be bad and now SSB coming out (after that people have already spent their money on HW, Bayo and MK DLC :P )

Not with that price, no thank you. I'll just wait. Besides, I'm still playing HW like mad, now MK8 DLC is out and even haven't touch Bayo's (1 and 2) and still theres SSB waiting to take my money XD

As for Ubisoft. Raymans are great (and Child of Light).. but seriously. The amount of bugs their games have, AC being extremely great example (I don't know should I laugh or cry when I've watched clips of bugs on Unity). I bet first time wee see WD on sale will be after Christmas.

it's almost like AC is meant to be always full of bugs so we can have a laugh :P



Finntendo commented on Poll: Who'll Be Your Main amiibo Buddy?:


French was 20e cheaper. Postage from UK was almost same number, only currency different ;) I was always just so used to order from UK when they had their super saver delivery but then they had to end it.

In my country, we also used to have place we can order cheaper, island called Åland (it was like Jersey was to UK). Anything below 42e had no tax so lots and lots of stuff was shipped thru there. They even built a new building for post there because increase was so mad. .... and then the state ruined it :P Our VAT is 24% with all of this kind of stuff...



Finntendo commented on Poll: Who'll Be Your Main amiibo Buddy?:


Oh I thought Link maybe preordered full. German Amazon has Link Amiibo, but it doesn't have controllers or game with adapter :P

I've been comparing and that I plan to buy two controllers as well and that will buy online since Finland one costs 45e (without shipping).

I usually check all UK, France (bought HW LE there, speak no french :P ) and Germany. I am always wondered if other countries have the websites that compare item prices.

We have two websites that you can check prices and I always use it for games, accessories or any other gadget I may buy, to see where is it cheapest.

...And I haven¨t even preordered the game. I just hate that if I preorder now, they'll just email me and say that sorry, you'll get yours in two weeks when we get more of these (happened to some with Bayo). So I guess I take my chances to see what my closest stores say on release day.



Finntendo commented on Poll: Who'll Be Your Main amiibo Buddy?:

16,90e cheapest in Finland, of course shipping (going from few euros and up). Amazon has 10+ pounds, just counting as well which is cheaper.

Link of course (meh, and Zelda and Sheik and Toon Link) and MegaMan for hubby.

Coolshop (since you mentioned Denmark) has those for 21,90, even with free shipping it's insane. Maybe they drop it some point (they are nice, at one point you got minifigure of Danish football palyers :P )



Finntendo commented on Hands On: Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter:

I'm just calculating here... I'd get two SSB4GC controllers in price of 58e.In my country, you get one for 45e. I have two contollers (one normal and one wavebird). Why I did not buy these when I'd gotten for 20e.

I will buy physical copy so if I ever get 8 to play... it's four for the GC and rest can use motes and one pro controller (well, I also have two Wii CCP)



Finntendo commented on Mario Kart 8 Software Update and DLC Available...:


Ha, I didn't like Wario Gold Mine on Wii and still don't like it.

As for Mute City. The music just brings so much memories and it being the last track, the music change when results are up, made me laugh. Kind of nice tribute to F-Zero (at least in SNES version, I don't remember if others had it). And Mute City music as still kind of MK feel to it :)

But it may be that Jet Bike will be changed to Blue Falcon..... :D (not sure about driving with Link tho)



Finntendo commented on Video: Nintendo Unleashes a Super Smash Bros. ...:

I thought Wii U would support only 4 (plus GamePad) but I guess three more then if they say it's 8 player. Unless it's like StarDust4Ever said: 4x GC contoller and.. erm... 4 for CCP or Mote? or one plays with gamepad?

5 people on my sofa and the rest next to it. I think my 42" Bravia can handle this.

Except..I only have two GC controllers.



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Reveals 11 amiibo Super Smash Bros. F...:

MegaMan. Oh my husband will be so happy! He's been very upset MegaMan not being amiibo (yet) :D

I first thought I'll just get Link. But Zelda would be cool too. And now you offer me Sheik, Toon Link and Shulk - even Shulk looks awful XD

Maybe I'll eventually buy and just hide from my hubby :D
(and Rosalina and Bowser) Even if I don't use those, I'll just admire them.

Oh Nintendo, with all the money I've given you, what else I could have boguht!

Edit: And Captain Falcon from the first release!



Finntendo commented on Talking Point: The Majora's Mask 3D Reveal Sho...:

I think Ninty has done well keepng MM low so long. I mean, they've must have been working with it for a while if it's released in 6 months.

MM is the only one that I've never finished. Like so many LoZ games, got annoyed by water tempe (or Great Bay temple or whatever it is in MM). Also, I wasn't much of a gamer then, maybe I should give it a try now. The point and fuzz about MM is exactly that it's so different from main LoZ games. It is creepy and dark, world is going to end. First 3 days are annoying but once you can start changing the time, it gets better.
Of course this puts off many fans. (for me OoT will always be superior to MM)

So for me, Direct opening with MM, kind of like flying squirrel hitting my face (LBW trailer caused the same reaction).

Treatments must have taken it's toll with Iwata, looked skinnier. But yay for mr. Iwata and oh that silly mr. Miyamoto!

I dared to say "they won't be saying anything about Shovel Knight" and yet they did. Splatoon looks great.

Hmm, so what else. I was watching Direct yesterday in the car so my brain isn't picking up everything.



Finntendo commented on Developers Reflect on F-Zero As It Passes Ten ...:

They say there's nothing new to give. But today, seriously? It has the potential to be a kickass racing game (look at MK and Sonic All Star Racing). There is always markets for driving games and do it well like those three (original, X and GX) and it will sell. Especially there wasn't one for Wii.
I think racing games are always more value to be played again and again than any other game.

I've mostly played SNES version. The whole sountrack is saved in my memory. IT's a kickass sountrack. I am shamed to admit, after playing SNES ;) GX was rather way too speedy for me, I haven't tried it much tho.

Last week I bought X, finally. Haven't yet tried (busy with HW and now Bayonetta)

hums the Big Blue theme



Finntendo commented on Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty Wii U Delay Seems to b...:

With all the updates... there isn't any space left with 8gb. Seriously...
I DO understand, that 8gb + external is as good, but if someone thinks they can go on with only the console... well of course if nothing from eSHop.

I am bit annoyed that you need the space when you buy games from eShop. You cannot buy and install later. Noticed this last Christmas, when tried to buy RER. Thankfully sales brought 1TB WD for me for 70e.

NBA 2K13 is for example 20GB - but of course, you can buy it physical.



Finntendo commented on Wii U Owner Proves That Rejecting The End-User...:

It has been said many times, but seriously. What ever you use, you accept the agreement.

You create bankaccount, agreement.
You install programme to your pc/tablet/phone, agreement
You install any gama to your pc/phone/tablet, agreement
You register to NintendoLife, agreement
Any service or messageboard or anything - agreement.

If you just play the games they offer, there's no reason to decline.

Hah, the only agreement (ToS) I read more carefully are the changes that Facebook makes :P Oh well, I never post anything that I'd regret later.



Finntendo commented on Nintendo Celebrates Super Smash Bros. and Wii ...:


Yeah, NHL I do understand but FIFA and MADDE..c'mon! :p But it's kind of sad that they push those out every year, sometimes with little changes and people buy those with no questions asked. And that's why they keep making those. I'd like to play NHL -game once again...

misses days with SNES and NHL95

X1 isn't really.. well, it is made for US. Europe goes with PS like it has always done. And then Ninty for Japan ;)

As for HW, oh I've played it so much! And Adventure mode, got even my hubby to play with me and he likes the game too (I just don't understand why the gamer like him cannot read what the mission is :D ) I hope the sales go up, if Smahs for U would bring up the hardware sales before Christmas.



Finntendo commented on Guide: How to Catch a Pokémon Omega Ruby & Al...:


Hah, I'm neary 30 and never played Pokemon since those started to be in when I was 15.. but still went for the code (Nordic Countries, Bergsala) and received it today and played and looked fun tho :D

I wonder if that 1000 for Nordic Countries in total? Probably...

...and now with this I've probably left out someone Pokemon fanboy :P



Finntendo commented on Bayonetta 2 Demo Now Live In The European Wii ...:

I was wondering what my gamepad had to tell this time, since there was that blue blinking....

I've preorded the game and usually the store ships it so it would arrive on release (24th this time) and I'm going away for the weekend on 24th XD Mayby I can touch the game before I go.



Finntendo commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Release Dates Conf...:

Tax refund is paid on 4th Dec! (yay 950e for me!) A week there or here, I don¨t care. Waited my HW for 10 extra days.

That black controller with the game logo would be cool and kinda "unique" BUT I've had my eye on Yoshi version... and promised my husband he can get the pink Peach version if he really wants :P. But then again, I have GC with one controller and working Wavebird (or what the wireless one is).

My husband got excited about Amiibos but then realised there is no MegaMan (I said probably because it Capcom's).

The language thingie annoys sometimes. Stick with English so even those in central Europe would learn it better :P (It's funny, in Germany you get along even you don't have the same language. In Spain, when they realise that you don't speak Spanish, the situation gets little awkward and then you just walk away because they don't want to serve)

erm.. moving on...



Finntendo commented on Nintendo 64x64: GoldenEye 007:

Multiplayer and daggers. 'Nuff said.

I never finished the game, problem was my lack of English (or the vocabulary used in the game) back then so I eventually I guess I didn¨t undestand the mission and there was time and something... I do have Wii version, played it once and it crashed and never really tested that if it was the disc or just one time. Problem today is too much games.

Wasn't that bad (playing) once you got hang of it. Now it probably would be horrible when used to today's controlling.



Finntendo commented on Event: Mario Kart 8 UK Championship 2014 At EGX:


Oh I know, you are the one in the pic with Mario Cap, head down when seeing Pro Contoller in front of you!

But the even looked awesome!
Thankfully there isn¨t any in my small country and if there was, they'd be in capital and I live middle of nowhere... :P



Finntendo commented on Want Bayonetta 2 On PS4 And Xbox One? You Migh...:

@Fazermint Exactly :D

It's kind of funny where every you read gamingnews. In Nintynews, there is ALWAYS box and ps players commenting, complaining and whining "die Ninty" "Kid's console" etc. but you never see Nintyplayer going around PS or Box news and doing the whining. We are above that :P ( I do own older PSs)

And do they really think that whining and whining will get them a game?

But like someone said, they really don't have much to play at the moment (give me one OMGWONDERUFLGAME! for Ps4 and XBone that is only for those and not also for 360 and 3)



Finntendo commented on Hyrule Warriors Battles Its Way to Number 3 in...:


I did pre-order but not arrived yet (haven't check today's mail tho). I checked website on Thursday and it said delivered. I actually don't even know where the game is coming from. I ordered HW LE from Amazon France and it said it won't be here until 30th.
