Goomba77 commented on Japanese Gamers Put Off by High Price of 3DS:

@Raptor78

My problem with RR is that the PSP version from a couple of years back totally kills it!! That version is miles better and a hell of a lot more fun to play. RR on 3DS doesn't feel right somehow, there's something missing from the playability and it has v poor graphics.

If you haven't played this elsewhere perhaps you will be ok with it?? I don't understand Namcos inability to deliver a decent version of this game on a Nintendo console!!

Goomba77 commented on Steel Diver Sinks Without Trace at UK Retail:

IMO price is a big issue with 3DS games in the UK... Steel Diver simply isn't worth the £29.99 ($49 US) to £39.99 ($65 US) asking price.

The same goes for much of the other tat that is stinking up the 3DS shelves at the moment, people aren't as stupid as Nintendo obviously hoped!

Someone at Ninty should be falling on their sword for this mess, it's a right cock up!

@Sadman

nope just extremely annoyed with lack of decent games for 3ds... no decent first party title until June 17?? what a joke!!

My 3ds is already gathering dust... Finished Pilotwings in under a week.. played SF to death... Ridge sends my eyes funny but there's nothing worth trading it for...

This is not what was described pre-launch now is it??

Getting so annoyed with 3DS... Pilotwings and Streetfighter until June 17?!?!!? I'm tired of them already.... I'm only impatient because Nintendo promised the system was going to be supported with good games, released evenly throughout the launch window! April = Puzzle Bobble.. ???? CRAP!!

Goomba77 commented on Review: Pilotwings Resort (3DS):

How about a new 3DS Zelda, where the entire game takes place on Wuhu?? or the next Mario... no, AND the next Mario... in fact why bother making any new environments at all??

"Our goal, of course, is to keep the items in but just balance it well"

Yeah right!! He should just put his hands up and admit they messed this one right up... could have been awesome but the madness of GP races ruins it for me...

Time Trials are really where its at in Mario Kart though, as they never seem to put a hard enough difficulty option in GP mode. By that I mean a fair one, that isn't random, where the other drivers actually put up some kind of challenge time/racing wise...

I've been wondering why there has not been an official announcement on what the US launch games are too... there's a dark voice in the back of my head telling me the US is getting something good like RE Mercs or Zelda and Nintendo know it'll wind us Euro's up, so they're keeping it quiet!!!

Goomba77 commented on Nintendo Announces Official 3DS UK Launch Line-Up:

@mariofanatic128 I agree Mario64 DS was great!! You have to admit there wasn't quite the same wow factor as when it was first unleashed on the N64.. But great all the same... Some of the mini games were excellent!!

Even the original Game Boy had a killer app at launch.. Tetris..

It seems like most people (me included) will be scrambling to get the same 3 or 4 titles... But there is no killer game is there?

So Nintendo dont want to blow away the 3rd parties straight out of the gate.. Understandable, if you think about it Nintendogs and Pilot Wings
are perhaps the weaker of the 1st party games (in sales terms) so going by their logic I suppose it makes sense.

But for this strategy to work the 3rd party titles have to be more appealing, I'm not going to buy games I don't want, especially at the price point they are at, are you?? I'll leave the ones I don't want on the shelf and wait, does Nintendo think consumers are fools!?

Goomba77 commented on Europe's 3DS Launch Line-Up According to Games...:

I think these comments speak pretty loudly on Clancy... no one here is mentioning them and it doesn't look like anyone here is planning to purchase either of them... except SilverBlacktail that is!

As for PilotWings, I will prob be forced to get this but from what we have seen so far it looks more like a tech demo!! For the £30 - 40 price tag there has to be more to it than just Wuhu Island.. (again) PilotWings 64 had a huge and wonderful map to explore!!

I didn't expect ALL the games to arrive straight away! ONE proper game would be nice though!!

Street Fighter will be on my shopping list too, but again its an old game with some tat I don't really want or need bolted on. Tokyo may be full of people walking around with their 3DS on stand by but the rest of the planet is very different!

As for Nintendogs.. mixed feelings.. I got the last one, it made me smile for 5mins then it was traded.. besides how many 6 year old girls will be getting a 3DS at launch?? I could use the same argument about the Shaun The Sheep 3D Videos..

AND who the hell would buy Asphalt over Ridge?? either Clancy over either RE?? or Dreamcast platformer Rayman2.. AGAIN!!

Maybe Nintendo are trying to give the Pre-owned market a boost at the start of the consoles life??

Looks like a lesson in how to mess up a console launch to me... I hope Nintendo read the negative consumer feedback on this...

Supporting 3rd parties is fine just as long as what they offer isn't complete crap that no one seems to want. I'm not gonna suddenly start buying tat like Asphalt or Tom F?&@£$G Clancy just to please Nintendo and by the looks of it I'm far from on my own!!

Decent games need to follow VERY quickly!
