Jenraux commented on Nintendo's Super Spring Sale Shines Light on S...:

@rjejr I've played 2 player of it on the Xbox 360, it's decent.

I think World of Keflings added split-screen, so it was a good addition that let players split-up. The game lasts a good 8 hours I reckon, you could probably extend that time if you messed around with town designs, but if you basically went forward to the missions, it'd probably take you around 8 hours to do it.

I don't think it's something you'd replay after finishing it, but it should provide decent entertainment for children while it lasts.



Jenraux commented on Review: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy (...:

@MarkS27 Well the Australian Dollar is weak compared to other currencies.

The worst price here is the UK, 25 GBP = 47 AUD. 30 Euros = 45 AUD, 30 USD = 37 AUD

Of course this is adjusted by the fact that the average wage in these countries is different. The UK's average wage is far lower than the US for example, but is aided by the fact that the GBP is worth more than the USD.

And I'm speaking too much.



Jenraux commented on Nintendo Download: 18th December (Europe):

@aliaric This is Nintendo we're talking about, they didn't even do Black Friday deals outside of the US, think we're gonna have to wait a few years for them to catch up with the other companies on the digital front still.



Jenraux commented on Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire Enjoy Biggest UK P...:

@FragRed The only (official) Wii U bundles in the UK are Wii Party U, MK8, Wind Waker, NSMBU, Skylanders.

You pretty much have to buy a bundle these days, it's hard to get a Wii U on their own, I'm pretty sure the 32GB has been discontinued as a stand-alone console. The 8GB can still be picked up in places though.



Jenraux commented on Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire Enjoy Biggest UK P...:

Yeah, Wii U presence has pretty much come and gone in the UK.

Saw some demo boothes in GAME for SSB, but the consoles are usually stored behind counters rather than on display, and the games have a section smaller than PSV/3DS/PS3/PS4/360/XBO/Wii. I'm not even joking when I say that the OUYA has more presence in my local GAME store than the Wii U, it literally has a counter that's filled with OUYA consoles, not that that's a good thing for the OUYA.



Jenraux commented on Poll: Nintendo Minute Debate - Is Super Mario ...:

I couldn't decide so I had to go with Option C.

Super Mario World has the biggest series following it, with SM3DW being bigger than NSMBU, so I was inclined to go with that, but the Bros is kinda the main series. Hard to choose.



Jenraux commented on UCraft Developer Promises Extensive Features a...:

Yeah, not sure who's making this game, I would guess their native language is not English, at least I hope so anyway. If it is, I don't have much faith in this.

The SDK paint thing looks pretty cool, but their trailers are really unprofessional, and I don't buy the whole "We are doing it for 'U'" thing. They've noticed that the Wii U isn't getting a MC, and they can now cash in knowing that they'll get a ton of sales from bringing a MC-clone to a platform without MC. Exactly the same happened with the Xbox 360 and FortressCraft/Total Miner.



Jenraux commented on Rising Star Games' New Online Shop Now Open:

@Maelstrom that's because they're a publisher, not a developer.

The purpose of Rising Star Games when it was founded was to bring Japanese games to Europe, which they did with the Harvest Moon and Rune Factory games, and also Virtues Last Reward. They don't do much for the American market as other publishers usually handle the HM and RF games there, which are RSG's biggest franchises.



Jenraux commented on Review: SPIKEY WALLS (Wii U eShop):

@Quorthon My Twitter is "IRLGame".

@Vonseux Sadly, for most indie games it isn't the price, it's the publicity, RCMADIAX pulling a move like this and getting loads of publicity ensures that he makes a decent return on his "investment". It's like how Rock Simulator 2014 has more attention than the majority of other indie games that I'm sure are better/more interesting.



Jenraux commented on Review: SPIKEY WALLS (Wii U eShop):

@NameDifferent This.

I've been working on my game for over 18 months now, and it'll probably end up making less than this rubbish, really gets to me that people can earn so much, doing so little. They clearly have no passion to do something like this.



Jenraux commented on Talking Point: The Super Smash Bros. 3DS Demo ...:

Don't have a code here, made me very sad, but more excited for the Wii U than the 3DS version, guess I can wait til 19th like most people to try it.

Plus I don't have an XL 3DS, so would probably be a pain to play.



Jenraux commented on A 3DS Can be Used as a Controller in Super Sma...:

It's a cool feature, but I probably won't make any use of it personally.

Rather play SSB on a big screen and I can't afford both versions, also noone I know owns a 3DS, so owning that version would mean playing on my own, which isn't great for SSB.



Jenraux commented on Fret Not, A World of Keflings Is Still On Its ...:

Should be good, own both of the Kefling games on the Xbox 360, but never had the DLC for this one, might be worth checking out in the future.

If this is the same as the 360 version, it should have 4 player local and online multiplayer as well, which is always a good thing. :)



Jenraux commented on The Pokémon Trading Card Game Is Coming To iP...:

I would sooner play this on my iPad than a 3ds, it has a much bigger screen that's better suited to something like this which needs a fair amount of info to be displayed at once.

Also they probably saw how popular Hearthstone is on iPad and figured it'd make sense.



Jenraux commented on Charming Zelda-Themed Carry Case Appears on Eu...:

@Ootfan98 I guess, but it costs 8 Wii U games worth of stars (we don't use coins here) to get enough Wii points for a NES game, and 15 Wii U games for a SNES game.

I guess Club Nintendo is just a pointless system worldwide. Unless you're rich, in which case you don't really need to be using it. :P



Jenraux commented on Charming Zelda-Themed Carry Case Appears on Eu...:

@brewsky fair enough, I guess we just want things we can't have :P

I don't even bother registering games anymore because I already have a carry case and there's nothing else available, sadly I don't think registering all my games will cover this. It's about 10 games worth of stars.



Jenraux commented on Charming Zelda-Themed Carry Case Appears on Eu...:

Doesn't NA get digital games on occasion though?

Incase you haven't noticed, the EU has never had digital games on it. All we get are carry cases, stickers and the occasional soundtrack.

No way NA gets it worse than EU. ;)



Jenraux commented on Play & Win: UK Mario Kart 8 Tournament - Live!:

Lots of lag for me, although didn't affect my racing much.

And yeah, MK tournies are never fair, I got 1 1st place in my first 10 races, but last 2 races I won both because I was against 9 CPU's and 2 players.

Also, you guys do realize the top 10 places are gonna be at 180 points, how you gonna distribute prizes?



Jenraux commented on Play & Win: UK Mario Kart 8 Tournament this Sa...:

@antdickens What about proxies?

I'm not sure how the game detects your region, but if someone really wanted to, could a proxy put him as British?

Not for me personally, I'm from the UK, just wondered. From what I've seen, the UK's skill-level is somewhat lower than the rest of the world, and it would suck if the top 3 were all outside of the UK. :P



Jenraux commented on Play: It's The Second Nintendo Life Community ...:

@DiSTANToblivion Yeah, I hit 2 with my red shells and 1 with a bob-omb and although they flipped, they didn't lose any speed, I just put it down to lag, although it is frustrating when weapons like red shells just explode for seemingly no reason.

And yeah, if you get in first and manage to get a bit of a lead, you'll probably win the race, nothing can touch you except blue shells, which are rare in MK8. If you're not in the top 3, you'll be getting red shelled, green shelled, bullet bills, stars and everything under the sun hitting you, as the lower positions are right behind you, so all the powerful weapons are targeting you.
