Kayvoo commented on Wii Street U Service Being Discontinued In Mar...:

Absolutely gutted Like many others I use this to plan journeys and scope out potential holiday spots. Sometimes I just wonder around different countries, visit the dodgiest places and neighbourhoods that I'll never visit. I thought it was an elegant way to use google maps and I'm very disappointed it's going. Nintendo started shutting down services on Wii and look what happened with the Wii U launch shortly afterwards! Not happy, sort it out Ninty...

Great to see some love for Rogue Leader & Rebel Strike, my favourite Star Wars games. I still play often, would be amazed if any developer topped these games for content, gameplay and polish any time soon. Still playing 14 years later, you think 'EA Battlefront' will be?

Nice article. I still regularly play F-zero GX which has a very low res on an HD TV. Doesn't bother me after the first 5 mins, art direction is the most important factor when working with limited resources and all the best Wii U games were built with a full understanding of this. A lot of Gamecube games haven't seemed to age at all due to this awareness and technically put most modern games' performance to shame. Remember F-zero on N64 ran at 60fps! In 1997! Credit to Shin'en, makes me wonder how 'AAA' developers use their resources...

Kayvoo commented on Nintendo Download: 29th October (Europe):

I have Octodad on another system and recommend it to anyone who enjoys unique, quirky physics based games. The writing and voice acting is better than expected and co-op play is a laugh. It can be frustrating when precision and speed is required though. It's great to see a game like this on Wii U, hopefully the port is a good one!

Awesome article! I remember those times clearly, Nintendo hadn't invested in violent games on N64. Their focus on cute, fun games was working out okay and violent FPS's weren't so common on console or proven to be successful in Japan. Thank God they remained committed to GoldenEye, it wasn't a very large project and Nintendo could have easily cancelled it!

Awesome, thank you NL! A very brave guy. My smiles were immediately dampened by the reality of this situation, a very clever way to convey the message without the limitations of language. Anyone with a shred of humanity can feel their pain as fellow humans, anyone who can cast their minds back 70 years or so can see parallels. Here in the UK, politicians will blame these defenceless peoples for problems caused by our own failings, whilst defending tax breaks for the largest companies and banker bonuses which are the true vampires of our society, draining and stockpiling our hard-earned money. But we all know this, right?

ULTRA-64, I agree! They have become corrupted since they are our only UK game retailer left. We used to have Electronics Boutique and Gamestation too, plus Woolworths. Prices are artificially high since there is no high street competitor.

Sorry to hear that guys. I've gone from loyally supporting my local Game stores for around ten years to walking in, shaking my head at their prices and walking out again. Over £40 for used discs? I feel bad for their staff. I now use the Argos opposite or Sainsbury's for new stuff and I'm lucky enough to have a couple of independent games shops for used games. Hope it's sorted quickly for all affected.

Kayvoo commented on Obituary: Satoru Iwata:

Iwata achieved so much in his short life and remained humble at all times. His passion was evident in his 'Directs', what other company president knows their games so well they would present them personally, in a foreign language? His charm and humility will be sorely missed and fondly remembered.

Wow, I just read that the Rogue Squadron Trilogy for Wii was not only finished and ready for release, it was the best work the team had ever done! For me, that is the worst casualty of the 2008 money-vanishing-scheme. Perhaps if they'd not done Lair, financiers would've had more faith in a good product from the studio :'-(

In Crygor voice - 'Verrrry Nice'! Still haven't transferred my Wii data cos I love playing Brawl with the GameCube pad, now I won't have to buy four poorly made adapters to play the new Smash. Good news for future stuff like 'Project Cars' too! Very happy to see this.

I grab double Klobbs just for the badass noise and the fear it strikes into opponents. Mr. Lobb should be proud. DD44s are my favourites, Dr. Doak always stood out for me because of the Facility speed run cheat. If he wasn't in the correct place I would always hunt him down before my restart..
