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 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 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!



JohnG commented on Nintendo Download: 6th February (Europe):

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 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 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 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 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.
