goldgin commented on Insider Reports Suggest That Focus On Eternal ...:

I was one of the lucky few to have played and completed Eternal Darkness, probably the best GC game after zelda. I still own it actually... I might give it a go again later on my wii. Do you think it could be worth anything on ebay? It's PAL.

goldgin commented on Nintendo Responds To Foxconn's Admission Of Gu...:

"if we were to find that any of our production partners..." it's amazing what an unannounced visit can unravel nintendo... try it sometime. It is also amazing that a teenage group of hackers called anonymous have found out and pointed out child abuse from continents away WITH VIDEO FEED! while apple, nintendo and sony simply had nothing to do about it. The worst thing is foxcon simply apologized and sony, nintendo and apple gave their forgiveness and blessing like scolding a child.

goldgin commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Takes One Step Forward...:

You are being too kind NL, Nintendo's online pricing is plain ridiculus. I was excited to see the offerings after the NDirect only to discover, as you mentioned, maximum prices on yr old games. A quick search on amazon will get me Mario Land or art academy for less than 20, and they include an efin printed manual!!!

goldgin commented on Review: New Super Mario Bros. 2 (3DS):

what? no minigames? single cart minigames were the reason the 1st one became so popular... I was expecting single cart co-op too, come on nintendo, what happened to advancing some of your tech? ok gfx is not what matters most but you have abandoned one of my favorite features of DS, single cart play.

goldgin commented on Review: New Art Academy (3DS):

I was waiting for this title, glad it got an 8 mainly for sharing options which I don't mind. Will pick this up if I find it at a good price.

goldgin commented on Talking Point: Another Look at the News - 6th ...:

A nice "feel good" compilation overall, well done guys, this "Talking point" series of articles make you feel more like family, a main difference from other sites, it just seems as if you speak our opinion.
I didn't know about monilith aquisition and that Xenoblade plus other franchises from these talented people are exclusive to nintendo. Pretty excited now about 3DS/WiiU iterations. Even more knowing that my favorite jrpg series, Final Fantasy, has lost some of its more talented staff, thus becoming a series of stale/arcade iterations.

goldgin commented on Nintendo Download: 5th July 2012 (Europe):

I was just expecting all popular songs for a normal 49€ price... getting what's needed (explanation below) would cost up to 99€. It would be ok if the dlc songs were secondary themes, but it seems some classics are included there so I would 'need' to buy them if I am an FF fan wanting a true trip on memory lane (excuse my english). Now my trip is ruined as I have to seek and locate which classic songs I need to pay extra for... and no, these songs are not worth a dollar each as I already own them once (the original games). Besides, I don't mind the price, I mind the marketing scheme behind this... ruining the experience.
then again, I am not used to music games as I don't own any so forgive my lack of perspective on the matter. It just looks to me as if they are selling zelda with some of the best dungeons as dlc instead of secondary quests.

I don't undersatnd why one has to buy classic ff songs separately. Is the cartridge like 8€ cheaper? What kind of logic is this? "buy 85% of a cartridge full price, then pay another 8€ for the rest... on day one!!!" wtf? at least 3ds xl comes cheaper without the charger/manual (supposedly) and I find it fair.
I wanted to buy theatrithm but now ... no.

goldgin commented on EA Sports to Reveal Wii U Games Next Month:

I bet 10$ fifa will be a cut-down version of the other consoles (gfx, no drible tricks/moves, maybe cartoony, no 20 player online) but it will sport a nice live map of the field on the second screen with extras like player stamina, handicap/bonus depending on position, and live strategy changes/decisions, a live coach/assistant giving you tips about the game.. maybe "what just went wrong" tips.

goldgin commented on Talking Point: The Pros and Cons of 3DS XL:

"...the touch screen and gyroscope capabilities will continue to provide control options typically associated with a second Circle Pad"

  • can someone please explain that one to me one more time? how do you replace camera control with touch? or with gyro?
  • NL: but Miyamoto-wara-wara san said so!!!
  • ok then

goldgin commented on Kingdom Hearts 3D Trailer Goes With The Flow:

I'm not sure about flowmotion:
You are facing the enemy, sword ... errr key at the ready...
indead of rushing towards him, you run the opposite way, searching for a wall or barrel to mock about, allowing the game to pick another target instead, which turns out to be bob squarepants' sidekick.. lv1, 10hp,... a waste of time, effort and visual effects.

goldgin commented on North American Nintendo Direct Round-Up (22nd ...:

look at that monstrocity... not interested in xl, waiting for lite (also, double the battery life, half an hour more is still not good enough nintendo!)
Fire emblem is a must now and layton looks awesome. no monster hunter... :(

spoiler: didn't anyone notice the consequences of no right thumb stick?
seriously.. we have to buy another, bigger circle pad?

goldgin commented on E3 2012: Wii U Tech Specs Revealed:

@retro_player_22 Playing while it's connected by a cable huh? they'd better go patent that sort of innovation. Anyway, it would require quite a long usb cable from the TV to my sofa, unless you are implying playing as close as one meter from the TV.
In other news, check the latest NL feeds about performance that prove me right http://bit.ly/MZaHz9

goldgin commented on E3 2012: Wii U Tech Specs Revealed:

@StarDust I also watched "Beyond", and "The Last of Us" online the previous night, it looked quite good. I know the feeds are different (youtube/ustream) but still, I'm talking about texture sizes here, even on a feed, when the image is relatively still, you can see the detail. Reggie looked pretty hi-res to me while standing still, so did the pre-rendered videos, ie ZombiU FMV intro. All the WiiU 1st party games were pointing to a low polygon/cellshaded look too, instead of the Zelda demo we were expecting.

goldgin commented on E3 2012: Wii U Tech Specs Revealed:

Guys, WAKE UP, look closely at the REAL-TIME videos at the presentation again. The best looking title that comes close to PS3's graphics is ZombiU and it is actually bad, sorry to say this but just notice the blur effect to hide the framerate, also the lack of hi-res textures.... same goes for the Assassins Creed real-time video (very short, in-between the rest of Ubi's games), it looks worse than PS3 demo for the same game. Even more, compare this to yesterdays "Beyond" by Quantic Dreams, or plain old RE5. Unfortunately, at this time, the WiiU is inferior to PS3/XBOX360. I wonder if it can handle current-gen multiplatform/multi-core games like Fifa or CallOfDuty.
It better be really cheap or at least just good enough of an excuse to replace the low-res Wii from my living room.
The only reason I'm probably buying this is cause I already own 4 wii-remotes, 3-motion-plus peripherals, one Classic Controller Pro and 2 nunchucks collecting dust in my living room.

It better be cheap, it seems like WiiHD to me. Battery life also sucks, if this console is to be used by everyone in the family then 4 hours is just not enough.

goldgin commented on E3 2012: Wii U Supports Two GamePads:

they probably mean half fps on the controllers, not on tv... just a hypothessis as I've been trying to find the first half of the presentation I've missed online.
