Video game box art fanatic

Male, 33, Australia

Englishman who has been gaming since the Sinclair +3. I have been an avid reader of Nintendolife since they first popped up at the Wii's launch, have a thing for Metroid releases, love box art, especially the Japanese kind and wished the Dreamcast hadn't died a death so early.

Gidkilla commented on Talking Point: An Open Letter To Nintendo:

Nintendo fans being Nintendo fans we tend to on our high horse when backed into the corner like we are at the moment, but I do think we should be concerned. After 20 years of buying Nintendo products i can safely say the company now is a different beast. the quality is still there at times, but they lost sight of what made them a great company with the Wii. I don't want that tablet to play games with, i want a top end next gen console and i couldn't give a monkeys about seeing the map on a second screen (and that is where we'll be with third party releases before you know it).

Gidkilla commented on Talking Point: The Pros and Cons of a Wii U Pr...:

Whats amazing is that Nintendo came out saying that they'd learnt from the mistakes made at the 3DS's launch, but when it comes to early support things are even worse. Its hard to believe that these companies (Sony included) can get the market so wrong, when they've been around so long!

Gidkilla commented on Pachter: Wii U Will Sell Between 30 to 50 Mill...:

I agree that this kind of article doesn't really constitute as good editorial work. This guy has always had a bias and if he can't be objective whats the point in hearing his view and it being reported?
a lot of what he's saying could end up being true but we don't need his opinion (and thats all it can be) when the writings so clearly on the wall at the moment. And we don't need Nintendo life fuelling the fire!

Gidkilla commented on PETA Starts "Whaling" About Assassin's Creed I...:

@ Suicune. I agree, its missing PETA's point if you think they are concerned with you hopping in your boat for a morning whaling session. Any kind of virtual glorification of something that is obviously a real life problem should be treated with more sincerity. Whaling however historical is a little different to shooting aliens and with graphics and gameplay becoming more and more advanced we can't help but start to run the risk of these things influencing certain peoples at some level, even if its just being blasé to it all.

Gidkilla commented on Review: Jeopardy! (Wii U):

Another quality Wii U release... How about this for a thought. Nintendo just releases first/ third party games, forgets about other publisher support and then creates and supports its download service so it has exclusively the cream of the indie development crop?
