Hard pill to swallow. As much as I would love to support Indie developers, if the game isn't up to scratch, most people won't budge, unless they have some extra e-shop credit laying round. Thanks for the honest review.

P.S. The 3DS.. I also own one, but all the games 'coming out' for it seem like the usual Japanese cutesy-kiddy-type games (including Pokemon, I know, the haters will hate me) but I just can't stand that stuff. Vintage arcade, Zelda, Mario and innovative apps is what I love ;)

grumblegrumble commented on Review: Color Zen (Wii U eShop):

Ok, after saying on the 3DS review of this game that there was nothing in this version (I own the iPad version) to draw me in, I purchased the Wii U version earlier today and I'm hooked all over again. Great graphics and sound. Wonderful value. I now highly recommend the Wii U version ;) P.S. I still play Cake Ninja 2 on my 3DS (Cypronia) and I love it, I don't care what the reviewers say. lol ;)

Perfect review! I purchased this game for my GameBoy Advance way back when it first came out.. I remember shelling out like $30-40 for it! lol And back then, it got a 10 in my book! (This was/is on sale at the moment in the shop, for around $5, totally worth it!) But, as times progress and technology advances, I understand your 7/10 review. I totally agree with it, and I give this a huge thumbs up for value! (One complaint: On the Wii U screen (flat screen TV) some of the text and graphics come across as extra blocky or splotchy. Only to be expected. But, otherwise, perfect vintage release!

@IrateGamer @Rosebud is right. For those of us on a budget, we can justify skipping a pay release when a free one is readily available. The only difference between the Wii U and 3DS version is the hardware it runs on. In the case of Nintendo.. Wii U better graphics, 3DS more portability.

I actually think this is THE best Zelda (portable) game to date. With "Spirit Tracks" right on it's tail, and the new Zelda 3DS game. This is a wonderful journey! I remember buying this as a kid with money I'd saved up from my first job, played this on my GameBoy Micro until my fingers bled lol ;) 10 out of 10 for me! :)

Actually, it's a very old and wonderful MARKETING PLOY. Do you guys ever wonder why sometimes you see "Laundrymat" signs upside down? It was an old gimmick in the 60's-70's, etc, to get people to come in. It sticks in their mind, etc. Either that, or the employee was stoned out of their mind. lol Or both.

Only 200 coins at Club Nintendo for this now... I'm guessing I should pick it up?

I just knew this title wouldn't get anything above a 5 or 6. And yet, Nintendo advertised it heavily in the e-shop and other places, plus, it was the only download available the week after Christmas for 3DS systems, pretty much. Hopefully we will see SMB3 soon and other gems that other countries have already seen.

grumblegrumble commented on Nintendo Apologises for Nintendo Network Issue...:

Pokemon. Sheesh. If I even liked Pokemon, I might understand, but I have always hated that little yellow creature. Gives me nightmares. lol I'm glad Nintendo addressed the issues publicly and let's hope that they are upgrading their servers as we speak.

@PinkSpider It's her choice. I actually tried to talk her out of it, saying it's the holidays and it will pass in a day or two. A lot of these parents don't have someone they can turn to for this kind of advice, and I hate to think of the ones who will return systems without asking questions.

@MysticX Day long outage? It was nearly 3 days! Where have u been? lol

I don't think Nintendo should offer up free goodies to apologize, but maybe a declaration that they will improve servers. That would do it for me.

@PinkSpider One of these friends of mine tried calling Nintendo and all lines were busy, so she told me she's returning her son's 3DS XL back to Toys R Us tomorrow morning.

Downloading "EDGE" from the e-shop as we speak ;) I finally got through. If I can reach her tomorrow, I will let her know to try the e-shop once more before returning it.
