nice. and X has the best soundtrack of the series, by miles.
HaNks commented on Game & Wario Gets Crazy in Europe on 28th June:
at last. now wonderful 101 date. probably won't be buying this, at least not at full price (even if it's a 'budget' title). £15 seems about fair.
HaNks commented on UK Retailer Asda Slashes Basic Wii U Bundle Pr...:
either nintendo is taking the hit or these retailers will not be stocking the wii U in the future.
HaNks commented on Talking Point: Lessons to be Learned, Again, F...:
nintendo has made a lot mistakes in the launch of the wii U, so it's good to see an article that reflects this reality. that's not to say anything about the long term prospects for the console or quality of output, when it does start to flow.
if somebody makes a mistake you want them to learn from it. fanboy rationalizations don't help anybody. nintendo continue to learn the hard way, very slowly and stubbornly adjusting their business. i hope they start to be a bit more forward thinking so the changes aren't so last minute, on the fly or blatant fan pandering as they have been recently.

HaNks commented on Japanese Wii U Virtual Console Launches With 1...:
nintendo is doing a great job with the virtual console, especially in the west. couldn't ask any more of them really.
HaNks commented on Satoru Iwata Taking Over CEO Role of Nintendo ...:
@Pikminboy i know reggie is still around, it's just symbolic that Iwata will be more directly involved in running NoA. maybe he was all along? someone over there is out of touch with western markets, that's for sure.
the body is no longer ready. RIP reggie.
HaNks commented on Wii U Virtual Console Launch Lineup Is Revealed:

HaNks commented on New 3DS Nintendo Direct to Broadcast on 17th A...:
@Emaan exactly. that the 'q2' wii U games still haven't been dated is crazy. nothing to do with e3 either.
a new 3ds direct? what about the wii U? you have to be kidding me...
HaNks commented on WayForward and Ubisoft Releasing The Smurfs 2 ...:
the smurfs game on the SNES was rock! this could be good if its anything like that game. and wayforward nailing the 2d style games.
HaNks commented on Review: Harvest Moon (3DS eShop / Game Boy Color):
really fond memories of playing this to death on the GBC, won't be forking out to play it again though.
HaNks commented on Aliens: Colonial Marines Cancelled on Wii U:
anyone still cared about this after the shocking reviews? lol...
HaNks commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2013 - Spr...:
given their recent track record, i wouldn't put too much faith in wind waker hd being 'fall' or 2013. depends whether its more a remake or reskin. having said that, it should be a hard hitting year for wiiU, most likely from titles not shown yet like Mario Kart, Retro project and a 3D Mario if it releases.
the release date situation right now is shocking given the lack of software. nintendo badly need to get dates for games like pikmin and w101 and get them out. the whole list is pretty much TBA.

need some better XL colours, forget about the cradles for now.

HaNks commented on Talking Point: The Download or Disc Dilemma:
prices. i expect a digital version to be at the very least 10% less than the cheapest boxed copy and on super fast servers. on pc i am all digital because storage space isn't an issue and steam is a cloud based service not tied to a particular machine.
if i get a digital game on the wii U it is locked to one machine, costs more AND i have to have to sort out external storage. so where it's an option, discs all the way. funny because digital is more convenient, loading times, no disc drive spinning up noises.
brand new NSMBU is £30 from zavvi/hut right now. eshop - £50.

X is the best.

surprisingly soon, very nice.
HaNks commented on U.S. February Sales Figures Make Grim Reading ...:
the broader US (and UK) economy is not going anywhere in the next few years and probably the next decade. nintendo will be wise to focus on the wealthier european nations and other emerging markets.
HaNks commented on Nintendo Announces Mint White 3DS XL For Japan:
ugly, lets get some good colours please.
HaNks commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo Super Famicom:
Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, when I was dead broke, man I couldn't picture this.
HaNks commented on Review: F-Zero (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo):
yup, X is the series pinnacle, better than GX for me. this is a great achievement for a SNES title though and no walk in the park from a difficulty perspective. great soundtrack too. at 30 pence its a no brainer, methinks this VC 'trial' is more of an early adopter bonus, thanks Nintendo ;]
HaNks commented on Wii Mini Is Hitting The UK On March 22nd:
not so bad considering you get a nice red motion plus included. and the retail price on those things individually is +/- £40. nintendo will have an idea of how many people ever connect their wii's to the internet and it's probably a lowish percentage. so this seems like a reasonable model to push in the future, especially in 'emerging' markets.

HaNks commented on Shiny Blue and Pink 3DS Models Coming to Japan:
how about some new XL colours. purple, i'm looking at you ¬_¬
HaNks commented on Feature: A Further Investigation into LEGO Cit...:
really impressed with this title after the latest media blitz. was writing it off but looks like a lot more time and effort has gone into it than i imagined. like the style a lot.
HaNks commented on Masahiro Sakurai's Arm Injury Impacts His Work...:
not so stealthy smash bros tease.
HaNks commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo DS Lite:
the DS Phat was a lot more ergonomic and better for MK. screen is a huge upgrade on the Lite and the later revisions getting close to the best of both. OG 3DS is kind of the same dimensions as the Lite - not good for larger hands!
HaNks commented on Wii U Advert Banned In The UK:
it's something you would presume, i was pretty surprised at the uncertainty and then confirmations about games that would NOT have off-tv play. and the small matter of existing VC and Wii games. after the initial E3 showing it was letdown to learn this feature isn't hard-wired into anything the console outputs.

miyamoto the troll - 'f-zero, who wants f-zero?' - puts f-zero in nintendoland :3

its better to have choice than no choice at all.
