Shame there was no launch discount.

Shame also that there is never discounts for Virtual Console games. So this will forever stay in the 20€ price level. Oh well, it's a lot better than the rip off 60€ prices that auction sites are having for the used disc versions.

Also yeah, the European name for the Wii Kirby game was really horribly stupid. You can't get more bland and lame name than "Adventure Wii"
Return to Dream Land has at least a swing to it.



Kolzig commented on Talking Point: New Nintendo 3DS, Operation Fac...:

My issue with Nintendo regarding the New 3DS is couple of things.

A) the stupid name
B) the media silence around the so called limited edition cover plates (Majora's Mask, Pikachu and Kirby) aka cover plates 056, 057 and 058.

My bloody axe will start flying if they release again like 10 copies of the cover plates and some ebay resellers buy all.

Nintendo is even advertising the Majora's Mask covers on their webpages in UK, but no sign of the cover plate has been seen anywhere and it is the most glorious one.



Kolzig commented on Nintendo Download: 19th February (North America):

Really sucks that Kirby and the Rainbow Curse isn't coming to Europe before late in the summer.

It just makes no sense and especially nerd raging is that Nintendo isn't telling any business reason why the release is later during the year when all other regions get it earlier.

Stupid damn region lock.



Kolzig commented on Nintendo Confirms Another Miiverse Update:

Thing is, what Nintendo DOES need to fix in Miiverse is the Follow button in general, in the web interface.

When I go to Miiverse on my phone or PC, there is no follow button available in the threads or in people's profiles. This is only available on 3DS and Wii U Miiverse apps. This used to be available still a week ago and since then I've seen the button go on and off that sometimes in the evenings it is visible and then again next day it isn't.

I really don't know what they are playing around with, I have reported the problem already, but have seen no change back to functioning form.

Since the search in the Miiverse itself is really horrible, it's difficult to search user profiles on other platforms than the web interface where you can just directly write the wanted person's user name to the url field. Miiverse search doesn't allow you to search for users, specific posts or anything useful. It only allows to search for Miiverse's communities names.

As an example I was trying for a week to find Reggie's user profile and it just isn't possible in Miiverse itself, but I did find on PC but couldn't add the profile as to Follow it. One evening it was however possible during this week so I immediately marked him as followed.

What is possible on web interface still is to remove the follow mark, but then the whole button disappears after that and it is not possible to mark user again followed, unless you go to the Wii U/3DS app and do it there, if you can find the same user somehow.

And seriously, they need to give access to private messaging to friends in the web interface. It is really difficult to keep conversations going with people when you can only do that in Wii U Miiverse. Hopefully this all will be sorted when they make the unified user account system so that 3DS has the same friend lists also.



Kolzig commented on New Nintendo 3DS Launch Sales in the West Surp...:

It really is a poopy name.

They should've just called it Super 3DS, because the buttons and all. Would make more sense and normal non-gaming people would know immediately that ok, this is something different from the old ones.

Same with Wii U. Who the hell in Kyoto came up with that stupid name. It should've been Wii 2 and devices would have been flying off the shelves to customers.



Kolzig commented on Satoru Iwata Reiterates Plans for Quality of L...:

I wonder why Nintendo doesn't talk about the oldest pillar that they still are doing. The hanafuda and poker etc cards.

I have a set of each and those are just incredibly well done, very excellent quality.



Kolzig commented on Video: Defy Gravity With These Sonic Lost Worl...:

Lost World is really horrible game, it's not as tragic buggy crap as the abomination that was Sonic Boom, but oh man I hate the controls in Lost World. The homing attack is the worst idea ever to be done to Sonic games.

Especially since it can't be turned off and the gameplay is built on that annoying stupid feature of an attack.



Kolzig commented on Video: 90's Arcade Racer Is Still Alive, And H...:

With Nicalis as a publisher, I don't have my hopes up that this will ever get released in Wii U European eShop.

The most tragic part is that the developer is from Greece. European dev's game, never to be released in Europe for Wii U. You'll see.



Kolzig commented on Kirby and the Rainbow Curse:

Why the hell is the release date listed here as Q4 2015? Wasn't it supposed to be Q2 which is also stupid and typical Nintendo behaviour.



Kolzig commented on Reaction: Satoru Iwata Holds Off on Major Anno...:

I just really hope they will put out the Virtual Boy line on 3DS VC.

There weren't that many games released for the platform and like five of those were only great. So release those, keep the head exploding red&black color as optional, but make other colour setups as the default ones like classic Gameboy green&black and white&black.

The 3D games like Wario Land, Mario Tennis, Tetris 3D just scream for a re-release on 3DS.



Kolzig commented on Poll: Are You An Early Adopter With The New Ni...:

I am upgrading from my red 3DS XL to a Monster Hunter limited edition N3DS XL. Still waiting for it to arrive, it's somewhere in a post office in England now waiting to travel to Finland.

Does anyone know how it works now if I have 32GB microSD in my red 3DS XL already with a SD adapter, and I want to use the exactly same SD card in the N3DS. How does the transfer work with least amount of painful extra work?

The Pikmin transfer animations are nice, but I sure hope Nintendo will unveil the new unified non-hardware based account system in autumn with the "New Global Club Nintendo program".



Kolzig commented on Kirby and the Rainbow Curse Developers Give Ba...:

Still don't understand what is the problem with Nintendo of Europe and Satoru Shibata. Why is Kirby delayed for around six months when compared to the American release?

Makes no sense at all.

Also, still sad because of the fact that Kirby's Adventure Wii VC will release without launch discount. That will come up to bite Nintendo's behind as sales will be significantly lower now.



Kolzig commented on Nintendo Download: 19th February (Europe):

Shame that Kirby isn't on release week discount. I wonder what happened at Nintendo?

Why is the price of Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance in dollars in the news article?

The Warner sales prices are cool, but those games should've had a permanent discount already and be now on sale for even lower prices that they are putting those out. Though Lego Marvel Super Heroes is "a bit" tempting at that price.



Kolzig commented on Nintendo's Wii U TVii Service is Formally Canc...:

I hope they remove stupid button from the menu soon now that TVii is finally put out of it's misery.

The Nintendo Anime Channel is ok start, but misses a lot of shows that should be there. Also it is highly annoying that the Japanese voice tracks are not possible to be chosen. Same for subtitles, there are none, except during Inazuma Eleven's intro song.

They need to add A) more shows B) Japanese language tracks C) English subtitles D) make the channel for Wii U also.



Kolzig commented on New Miiverse Update Adds Comment Previews and ...:

It's quite annoying that Miiverse doesn't have that feature when someone else comments on a post you commented. It only follows if someone comments your original postings thread or if the original creator of a post you commented comments on his thread and then the yeahs to your posts.

Can't have a really extensive conversation with a group of people at all since you don't get the notifications of all comments to the threads you are active in.

Also maybe the most important feature that they need to add is private messages on the PC website interface. They need to free up the commenting so that it's not just tied to Wii U.

Then hopefully as autumn and the new Club Nintendo or something else comes up, they will have a new unified system ready so that the 3DS friend list and Wii U lists will be combined into one so that PM is available on 3DS as well.

The 2nd update feature in this new update is kind of useless, but I am happy that it is not filling up the activity feed with all kinds of spam. I can see like every 10th or 15th post is a recommendation, that's ok even though the suggestions are usually really not that good.



Kolzig commented on Finally, Street Fighter II Has Been Ported To ...:

Virtual Boy needs to come to 3DS. It's the only system that truly is born to be brought back alive to 3DS.

What I have been thinking for years already is that Nintendo should bring all the Virtual Boy games to 3DS and have a few colour modes available, one with the original eyes exploding red&black colours, one with Gameboys green&black colours and then even one with full colours like the mock up picture that Renegade Kid's Jools Watsham showed at some point last year.



Kolzig commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

All gaming sites should drop the made up score systems. Stupid people look at only the score and don't even read the text, even though the reviewers text is the most important part of the review. All review scores are anyway made up and rolled with a dice, very rarely games get low scores and in a true 1-10 scale or 1-100 scale most games would be anyway around 50-60 range, but still all end up being 7-9 or 70-90 which makes no sense.

Also by dropping the scores completely sites like gamerankings and metacritic will die like those deserve to.

Nothing makes me more sad than games like Fallout New Vegas having some damn bonus system for the developers tied to the Metacritic score. That is so absurdly insane that I still can't believe it actually happened.

So I hope Nintendolife and Pushsquare follow soon and drop the scores. Instead have for example a plus and minus section at the end if you want to have some sort of short section to tell quickly about the game.



Kolzig commented on 3D Streets Of Rage 2 Rated By Australian Class...:

Fuuuuuuuuuu... fantastic!

The best Streets of Rage game coming with M2 treatment on 3DS, sign me up IMMEDIATELY!

This will be bought day one when it comes to Europe.

Now if they next do the best Sonic game, Sonic 2 with 3D treatment, my life will be even more complete.



Kolzig commented on More Details Emerge on Mutant Mudds Super Chal...:

Lets see if this one will appear in Europe.

Renegade Kid has pretty much given up on giving European gamers any games to play after they released original Mutant Mudds.

Still they did say that for example Moon Chronicles would come to Europe when all episodes are ready. Now all episodes are ready, but we still don't have the game.



Kolzig commented on Renegade Kid Reveals a Snippet of Information ...:

I just hope Renegade Kid would release their games in Europe as well. Most of their games are only released in North America.

They are starting to compete with Nicalis on the title of who cares the least about their European fans. Nicalis is the grand champion on that.



Kolzig commented on LEGO Jurassic World Teaser Trailer and Snippet...:

Jurassic Park might be cool since it includes also the original movies and not just the horrible looking fourth one.

Avengers also includes stuff from both movies so it might be nice, especially if they can have some freedom and not just follow the movie.

But more than these lame movie IPs, I would like TT Games to really break free and explore the Lego possibilities.

Lego City Undercover and the 3DS prequel are so much better than anything else they made since they had the freedom to make pretty much anything in those games.

Also a new Lego Racer would be so damn awesome. I loved the two old Lego Racer games on PC over 10 years ago. The first one was even on N64. Sequel was a PC/PS2 game and got a GBA port. The Lego Racer games were so good and fun games that I rate them as high as the first Mario Kart on SNES.



Kolzig commented on The Stability of 3DS System Update 9.5.0-22 M...:

Can someone confirm did they fix now fast and efficiently the Gameboy Color "bug" that some awesome hackers found out last week?

The one which enabled you to run pretty much any GBC game rom through any virtual console GBC title.



Kolzig commented on The Fall:

Is this game ever coming to Europe? Half a year gone and no release date in sight.



Kolzig commented on Rodea The Sky Soldier Looks Set To Spread Its ...:

So happy, so happy!

Never doubted for a second that if the game would be released, it would also get a western release.

Yuji Naka's fame is too well known!

Hopefully Europe and North America also get the bonus Wii version included.



Kolzig commented on Nintendo Download: 5th February (Europe):

Cool that Shantae is coming out finally. I wonder how long still until Half-Genie Hero is ready?

Also I really hope Jools Watsham would be more open about the European releases of Moon Chronicles and the still missing Mutant Mudds Deluxe on Wii U.

I do remember Renegade Kid promising that Moon Chronicles will be released in Europe when all the episode are done and the rest of the episodes are now done and coming out this week in North America.



Kolzig commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

Never understood the Lets Play stupidity.
Also never understood why these guys rake in so much money for said stupidity.

I understand bringing old games to light with bits of humour like Angry Video Games Nerd or That Guy with Glasses with old movies, but not this pewpiepie thing.



Kolzig commented on New Fire Emblem 3DS Title Set For Battle in Ja...:

Mario Maker delay is a good thing. I hope the expand it even more, the initial show in E3 was quite weak, but Mario Maker like Splatoon has been getting better and better in every Nintendo Direct that Nintendo has shown new material of it.



Kolzig commented on Antipole Gets the DX Treatment in Flip to 3DS ...:

Never played the original, noticed the announcement in Miiverse and it does look interesting. A good 2d platformer/shooter is always welcome.

Reminds me a bit of Blizzard's old Blackthorne, now that was a great game.



Kolzig commented on Rodea the Sky Soldier:

The game is finally getting released in April in Japan. I really hope Kadogawa Games will release it also in Europe & North America.

The price is a bit insane in Japan, especially for the Wii U version.

So cool that the Wii U version will apparently come including the original Wii version also, since Yuji Naka's Prope team finished that one already years ago, but Kadogawa Games did not want to release it.



Kolzig commented on Rodea the Sky Soldier:

The game is finally getting released in April in Japan. I really hope Kadogawa Games will release it also in Europe & North America.

The price is a bit insane in Japan, especially for the Wii U version.



Kolzig commented on Rodea the Sky Soldier:

So awesome, the game is finally getting released. Japan will get it in April and the Wii U version will include also the original Wii version that has been done and ready for about three years already!



Kolzig commented on Rumour: Cave Story 2 Teased at PAX South and C...:

I kind of wish Pixel does not make a sequel.

However Nicalis should really step up and release the missing games and ports in Europe for Wii U & 3DS. Come on, Ikachan was released in North America like two years ago, but still not in Europe. And where is the eShop release of Cave Story 3D?


I really fear that they will mess up the release of 90's Racer for Wii U in Europe also, even though the dev is from Greece!
