Grumblevolcano commented on Hyrule Warriors Update to Bring New Game Mode:

If it's not available already, I'd like a villain story where you play as the characters such as Ganondorf, Ghirahim and Zant. Also dependent on the actual story content maybe a final story too where the good and evil characters join together to fight an enemy which is an enemy of both groups (I love the Sonic Adventure games and that concept is awesome).

I'll definitely be there, was a lot of fun last time!

On a sidenote there was 2 people in 4th with 227 points last time (1 from UK, 1 from Finland), if one of the top 3 wasn't able to attend would the UK person in 4th automatically go through?

I don't have a problem with VC prices especially if you think about what they'd cost to get used on ebay or amazon. It's the main games I have a huge issue with. For example NSMBU for £49.99, really that should be a budget price like £29.99 as it doesn't add much to what the previous iterations have done.

I doubt it'll be coming to either console. Outside of Mega Man which is pretty much Nintendo focused anyway, Capcom seem to pretty much avoid Nintendo platforms as of recently (even the next Street Fighter is not coming to Nintendo platforms).

@Turbo857 Another thing I'd like is the option to "rewind" your progress with a chapter basis. This is a unique concept that Call of Duty Black Ops 2 brought up which you could rewind back to any level and start from there again.

Why I'd like it is due to in my last playthrough, I forgot that Nolan and Calill had Nihil hence the final boss was pretty much impossible (beat it eventually with about 4 characters dying).

I got annihilated on N64 Rainbow Road, it seems that when you're doing well people will go out of their way to target you even if leads to them falling off or slowing down drastically afterwards. I'm currently 4th but I really doubt I'll last long in the top 20.

Rather surprising given that this is Europe we're talking about. I was expecting something like Halo Master Chief collection, CoD Advanced Warfare or Evolve to win that. Congrats to Nintendo for keeping the hype up and I hope that translates to hardware sales.

@Krambo42 The time between the 2 releases are a bit too close together, sure nowhere near as bad as Sony and Microsoft's 1 year old remasters yet I'd say it's fine but on the edge. Would have probably been better as a summer 2014 release to help eliminate the huge 3DS game drought (May-October).

Galaxy 1 and 2 are too new for a remaster imo, Metroid Prime Trilogy is already a release and I dislike remasters of remasters. Haven't played Eternal Darkness or Wave Race Blue Storm so I went for F-Zero GX.

I honestly think the most likely option is Super Mario Sunshine due to that it can be tweaked a bit to make it better like with Wind Waker and also everyone seems to like the references in recent games (e.g. Sunshine Airport is one of the few tracks which are chosen too often on Mario Kart 8 online). As for other options that seems rather likely:

  • Luigi's Mansion (Dark Moon is 1 of the few games sold over 1 million copies on 3DS)
  • Twilight Princess (In case of Zelda U delay to 2016)
  • Xenoblade Chronicles (Very hard to find the game to buy at a decent price and Xenoblade Chronicles X is meant to be coming 2015)
  • Paper Mario TTYD, possibly with N64 Paper Mario included (Smash stage and hard to find at decent price)

Grumblevolcano commented on The Sega Genesis is Now 25 Years Old:

I never owned a Mega Drive (or SNES for that matter) but I liked a bunch of games from the collection released for 360 and PS3. The Sonic games were amazing (though not as good as the Adventure series) and a number of other games like Comix Zone were very unique and interesting.

The SNES library was better imo due to games like A Link to the Past and Super Mario Kart (how about supporting the VC better Nintendo, especially NoA and maybe we'll get some Mega Drive games from SEGA :P)

@Ootfan98 The 2nd and 3rd pages of this link (http://stars.nintendo-europe.com/?locale=en_GB) show that you can get either 1000, 500, 300 or 100 Nintendo points for CN stars, sure there's a code limit per day but it was a great way for me (and many other people in Europe) to get Wii VC for free. Very helpful especially as we don't have any idea (if at all) when Nintendo will release N64 (and other systems') games for Wii U VC.
