Cool, three Virtual Console releases again. Shibata & co. are really stepping up with the virtual console business recently.

Otherwise the week of big releases. Xenoblade Chronicles X, Paper Jam Bros and indie greatness with Human Resource Machine.

Such a damn shame that Nintendo left out the Japanese audio from Xenoblade. They could've added that as optional DLC since it's material that already exists.

It's on like Donkey Kong! Definitely getting Codename S.T.E.A.M.

That's a game that I've never even seen sold in physical format anywhere in Finland so that rarity is going to the shopping list Directly.

I suppose that leaves Zelda and Samus games for tomorrow.

Nintendo should do a Christmas sale with the deva where most of the entire eshop is in discount, including the best stuff from DSiWare.



Kolzig commented on Poor Odds of The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth ...:

I wouldn't put much faith in a company like Nicalis in general. The games they are involved with have always bugs and take forever to be released. Also they have the worst track record of releasing anything in Europe.

I just hope 90's Arcade Racer does come out in Europe at the same time as in North America. It would be ridiculous otherwise as the dev is from Greece.

It also looks like Cave Story 3D eShop version is never coming out, it has been a few years already listed in the eShop, but no buy option.



Kolzig commented on Rumour: The eShop is Opening Up in More Europe...:

My wish is that Nintendo would finally update the maps in 3DS Streetpass and bring the Streetpass Maps app to Streetpass Plaza in all countries available.

It really sucks that most countries don't have maps available even though you have different regions available in countries. I would like to see for example which regions I have missing from Finland, Sweden etc.



Kolzig commented on More Details Emerge on How Miitomo Will Work:

I think it should be extremely easy to transport existing Mii characters to the phone game since all "smart phones" have a camera and QR code reading possibility and Nintendo already has QR codes for Miis in both 3DS and Wii U.

I hope the new Club Nintendo will be open for all around the world.

Especially Europe needs to be one unified Nintendo Europe program for fans. The physical goods need to be shipped to any country, not just a few select ones.

@OorWullie @EonCow

You are correct, my bad! So we are just missing Cave Story creator's Ikachan then, only soon three years late at this point. Released in North America in January 2013.

And of course 90's Arcade Racer, which is missing still everywhere and is over two years late at this point from it's original release date.



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

Awesome to see Binding of Isaac finally coming to Europe, shame it's not cross platform purchase enabled. Now if Nicalis could release 1001 Spikes and Ikachan next for example. I wonder how long we will still have to wait.

Shame no Sega 3DS themes still, hopefully those are coming soon!

Going to be big week for Project Zero/Fatal Frame. Hopefully my physical copy of the game will be sent this week.

E: I stand corrected, 1001 Spikes came already to Europe!



Kolzig commented on Nintendo Download: 22nd October (North America):

Ahh come on, North America gets again a Sega theme for 3DS while Europe is still waiting for the first...

Also damn you Double Fine for not discounting Costume Quest 2 in Europe. Has it been patched and fixed by the way? I remember that people said Wii U version had some bugs?



Kolzig commented on Miiverse Gets a Major Web Redesign, and Introd...:

Nintendo is quite a lot trying to ruin Miiverse in all possible ways.

I know the base idea in some of their changes is to make the Miiverse have more possibilities but it looks more messy now that I have checked it after all the play journal etc changes.

Also they keep forcing all the crazy region rulings and try to do their best not to let any friends communicate with each other.

Recent example being the destruction of the Youtube community which used to be global community where people's only chance to chat together was possible. Now last week they made Youtube regional and have started to delete people's postings if those are not about youtube related. Also it is no longer possible there to comment on people's postings, only new posts are possible.

That really sounds paranoid and childish. You know I am always up for defending Nintendo in various errors that they do, but the treatment and destruction of Miiverse is just dumb on their part.

Just make the consoles region free and make a proper private messaging system in game to the OS etc.

Then they can be free to ruin Miiverse any way they want.



Kolzig commented on Sonic Lost World's Wii U Exclusivity Ends With...:

Lost World could've been a great game, if they would've removed the dreadful homing attack. That is the worst gameplay idea ever to come to modern Sonic games.

I almost bought it just because of the DLCs, but since the demo just failed because of the horrible forced homing attack sections of the levels, I decided to put my money elsewhere to other Wii U software.

The levels were otherwise really nice and it seemed that Sonic Team might finally succeed. Also the musics are far from the quality that was in Sonic 1&2&3, that's also one thing that Sega has completely lost since transforming from 2D Sonics to 3D.



Kolzig commented on SEGA and M2 Reflect on 3D Classics Series and ...:

Really hoping they will continue to make this excellent 3DS releases of Sega classics.

Still many to be done on the lists.

Golden Axe arcade version, Streets of Rage 3, Sonic 3, Sonic & Knuckles, Sonic CD, Comix Zone, Vectorman 1&2...

It would blow my mind if EA would give Sega&M2 the possibility to make Desert Strike, Jungle Strike and Urban Strike Mega Drive version on 3DS. But it's EA so never gonna happen.

But anyways, Power Drift must come to 3DS since it's in Japan already!



Kolzig commented on Nintendo Download: 8th October (Europe):

Mario Sport Mix is the wrong category in the article. It should be under VC.

I'm so happy that the best Sonic game is finally coming to 3DS with the usual superb M2 treatment.



Kolzig commented on 3DS Homebrew Hacker Turns to YouTube App As La...:

The best and only way to get 3DS region free since Nintendo completely fails in this simple setup.

Everyone should use the amazing openings found by Smealum, Nintendo needs to realize that they need to make a system update that sets the console region free.

Utterly stupid in the year 2015 to have a region locked console especially since they used to have all handhelds region free before DSi.



Kolzig commented on Nintendo Download: 13th August (Europe):

Citizens of Earth discount is great, good that it also reaches Europe since that discount is right now going on in North America.

Shame that the game isn't cross purchase, it would be cool to have that on Wii U and 3DS with one purchase.

Also, surprising to see Darksiders 2 getting a discount. That game has just been forgotten in the eShop all these 2,5 years. The price should be permanently dropped lower since it's already that old.

It is a great game though, anyone who hasn't played it should get it. That discount price isn't so bad.



Kolzig commented on Big Update For Cube Creator 3D Arrives This Week:

It's really interesting that even though it is a quite a direct clone of Minecraft, these devs are really doing a good job and getting rewarded for their copycat work, since Microsoft and Mojang are not interested to earn a lot of cash on the 3DS (and Wii U) with an official Minecraft version.

If I got it correctly this game has been in the top of the chart in the eShop so sales must have been quite good.

It's cool that they did it since MS and Mojang were not interested and dropped the ball.



Kolzig commented on The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Launches on the ...:

Since it's Nicalis and Tyrone Rodriguez, I don't think us Europeans will ever see this game on Nintendo platforms. Thanks Nicalis!

And if hell freezes over and they actually bring this to Europe, then why not bring all the other games they've not brought.

Where's Ikachan and 1001 Spikes for example?



Kolzig commented on ​Early Adopters of Xeodrifter Actually May N...:

It should be relatively easy to fix. If it's not possible to add the Wii U download code to the receipt of 3DS buyers, then 3DS buyers just take a screenshot of the receipt details and send it along with their NNID to Renegade Kid & Nintendo who confirm the details and send the user the code by email.

I don't understand what is so difficult here?

Also, alternatively they could easily put it so that when the Wii U version releases, the system just checks that the same NNID has already the 3DS version and marks then the Wii U version to be able to purchase for free and so add it to your download history.

There are multiple easy ways to fix this.



Kolzig commented on Nintendo's E3 'Roadmap' Infographic Shows Off ...:

That roadmap is really scary. Where in the world is Rodea the Sky Soldier, Fatal Frame 5 and The Devil's Third from that list?

Both games have been promised a 2015 release date, but Nintendo shuts out completely the most awaited games of this year.

I am really worried now.
