My biggest gripe is no GB or GBA games on 3DS Virtual Console.I didn't understand this decision when it was announced and still don't understand it now!

An account based system is an absolute must in my opinion.
I would also like to see the ability to 'gift' a game to friends and relatives.
JohnG commented on Nintendo Download: 19th February (Europe):
What's happened to GB and GBC games on 3DS Virtual Console?
Cannot bring myself to buy GBA games on Wii U. They just don't look or feel right.

@6ch6ris6 Don't be put off. It's a great game and well worth the money.

Most people seem to be in agreement....
Quirky and a bit wacky showing Nintendo to be different from run of the mill.
This is more like it!
JohnG commented on Play: Mario Golf: World Tour - Results and Rou...:
Must admit, I have not played a game as addictive as this for ages. I absolutely love it. People out there who are on the fence about Mario Golf should get a copy and get swinging. It's brilliant!

Racist?It's a game for God's sake.Get over it!
JohnG commented on Mario Golf: World Tour Swings Into 18th Place ...:
I got this from Amazon for £27. Been playing over the weekend and it's great value for a great game IMO.

Well it doesn't look like Rusty is coming to the UK so we probably won't get this either
JohnG commented on Review: Rusty's Real Deal Baseball (3DS eShop):
Please bring Rusty to the UK
JohnG commented on Rusty's Real Deal Baseball Has Some Interestin...:
Please let this come to the UK. It looks really good.
JohnG commented on Advance Wars Bringing the Battle to the Wii U ...:
It's a real shame that the poor performance of Wii U has somewhat forced Nintendo's hand on this one.
3DS is the obvious home for GBA titles and I fully understand why so many people are very annoyed at this.
Maybe GBA games will make it to 3DS when Wii U's fate is finally determined (one way or the other).
JohnG commented on Nintendo Download: 20th March (Europe):
It seems like more people are getting increasingly fed up with this situation as each week goes by.Does anyone from Nintendo read this in order to see the frustration?
JohnG commented on Wii Fit U Update 1.2.0 Trims And Slims for a B...:
@Pianist88 And your weight is?
@AFSpeirs I agree. Nintendo, please remove 'promo' from the game title.
JohnG commented on Nintendo Download: 13th March (Europe):
I keep looking in hope. My interest is rapidly diminishing.
I have even dug out my old GBA SP for another go at FF Tactics Advance.
I can't think why Nintendo are putting us through this week after week.
They must be trying to see how long they can taunt us all before giving us something a little bit decent!
JohnG commented on Nintendo Download: 6th March (Europe):
More rubbish. Yet again.
JohnG commented on Nintendo Download: 6th February (Europe):
It almost seems as though Nintendo are reluctant to release any VC games.GB, GBC and GBA have just been drip fed since the eShop started.What is the point of releasing DS games on VC when there is a much richer back catalogue that is being basically ignored!
Yet another week of nothing!Nintendo are doing nothing to help themselves here.
Once again, even more rubbish. This really is not good enough.
I keep looking every week in the hope of seeing Nintendo get their finger out and do the right thing.
Every week I am disappointed. NO GB, NO GBC, NO GBA !!!
JohnG commented on Nintendo Download: 14th November (Europe):
3DS Virtual Console being ignored once again. This is really getting to be a pain!
JohnG commented on Review: Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's C...:
From what I have seen up to now on Wii U and 3DS is that physical copies are always cheaper than downloads.
It is £20 on Amazon!
JohnG commented on Nintendo Direct: Wii U And 3DS Broadcast Comin...:
@GamerZackX Can't agree more!One of the main reasons I bought my 3DS was to play some classic GB and GBA games. Up to now it's been very disappointing. What's so wrong with handheld games on a handheld device?
JohnG commented on Nintendo Download: 13th June (Europe):
Let's hope the sound is a little louder on this round of GG titles!
JohnG commented on Microsoft: If You're Backwards Compatible, You...:
I play more Wii and eShop games than Wii U games but maybe that says more about Wii U software up to now!
JohnG commented on Talking Point: The Wii U Virtual Console Has S...:
Like many others, I don't understand the logic of GBA games on Wii U VC. They need to be on 3DS VC seeing as they were originally designed to be handheld games.
JohnG commented on Feature: Robust DLC Ensures That Fire Emblem: ...:
It would be really nice to be able to play this game!I bought the Fire Emblem 3DS XL but it had a faulty upper screen. I sent it to be repaired and it came back yesterday with exactly the same fault.Now I'm told I have to send it back again.Nintendo customer support do not respond to emails and the service is very poor in my opinion.I had a problem with my Wii U which took 4 months to resolve.
JohnG commented on Satoru Iwata: First Party Wii U Game Delays Ar...:
I couldn't wait for Wii U to be released last year. The problem is, I have only bought one game for it other than Nintendo Land that came with it.It really isn't a good situation that Nintendo have found themselves in!
JohnG commented on Talking Point: The Importance of the Virtual C...:
Very interesting article Gaz. The problem is that Nintendo is only toying with Virtual Console. It is certainly not a priority.How often do we see a new GB or GBC title?What is the point of NOT releasing some GBA titles?I wait every week to see the VC releases and 9 times out of 10 I am left disappointed!I can understand not wanting to release a glut of games all of sudden but at the current rate it will take 30 years for some to get released!It also seems that Sega has given up on VC altogether with no GG games being released for ages.
JohnG commented on Out Today: Fire Emblem: Awakening (Europe):
I have the 3DS XL on order from Amazon and it's not arrived today
JohnG commented on Europe Receives Fire Emblem: Awakening Puzzle ...:
I've been really looking forward to this and have the Fire Emblem 3DS XL on order
While I've been waiting I've played through GBA Sacred Stones which is brilliant for anyone who might not have played it.
JohnG commented on Review: Legend of the River King (3DS eShop / ...:
I think it's £4.99. Was looking at it the other day and almost purchased it. I think I will now after reading these comments
JohnG commented on Nintendo Download: 7th February 2013 (Europe):
Yet again no GB or GBC games. very disappointing once more!
JohnG commented on Nintendo Download: 27th September 2012 (Europe):
What about all the classic GB and GBA games. It's about time Nintendo paid a bit more attention to the 3DS eShop because this weeks offerings are extremely poor.
Surely a GB game per week isn't asking too much.
Sega seem to have gone very quiet too with no GG games for a while.
JohnG commented on Heroes of Ruin is GAME-Exclusive in UK:
I have most RPG's for DS and was quite looking forward to this as it looks pretty good from the trailer. I'll be giving it a miss though. I am not buying from GAME.I cannot see this policy working for either Square or Nintendo.
JohnG commented on Japanese Virtual Console List - July 2011:
Been waiting for years now but sorry to say it doesn't look like Gods, The Chaos Engine or even Quackshot will make it now. What a shame!
JohnG commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening ...:
Ever since the 3DS eShop was anounced this is the one I hoped would arrive sooner rather than later. Can't believe it is one of the first! Not only the best Gameboy game ever but one of the best games ever on ANY console in my opinion. I can't imagine any 3DS owner not wanting to play this piece of Nintendo gaming history!Now let's have Monster Max.
