If wee Jonny wants to play GTA, then he's sure as hell gonna get to play it. My cousin's kids use pester power to get their own way, as much as she resists the inevitable happens and she caves in to their demands.

I don't recall playing such violent games myself at that age (NES/SNES era), and I sure as hell don't like them now (aged 36). I really don't see any clear cut way of solving the age old (no pun intended) problem of age ratings.

The teacher's are stepping out of line by calling this neglect and involving social services, who's resources are stretched enough dealing with REAL social needs for children that are ACTUALLY being neglected through parent/gaurdian abuse, not some age rating logo on a product of someone's past time.

Unified Platform! Games compatible on home and handheld consoles with same version of game. Which means 1 Mario Kart has to be developed per generation, which frees up developers to make other games. Twice as many games!

Is the Trine Enchanted Edition discount for Trine 2: Director's Cut owners a temporary or permanent thing? And, finally, Trine 2 is permanently discounted, after about half a dozen temporary discounts! :-D

You mean if you then linked the USB HD to a different Wii U, would it be able to load them? Never thought of that, but I would say the Wii U has the ability to block that as it would cause rife piracy. People would go round their friends' house and copy their games over.



ledreppe commented on Nintendo Download: 26th February (Europe):


I have both, and I wouldn't get Rune Factory 4 if I could go back in time. Not that it's a bad game, I just got to a point where I felt hopelessly lost with the combat element. I needed to level up to tackle harder enemies but I couldn't upgrade equipment etc in order to level up, so I felt I was in a catch 22 situation. But that's just me/my inexperience of this game etc. Rune Factory is a little more hard core gaming than Harvest Moon.

The hardware in phones has always been far ahead of traditional portables. Not all the games are free-to-play/pay-to-win, I got Ace Attorney triliogy for £11, £10 cheaper than the WiiWare version, and you don't have to fork out extra beyond the initial purchase if you play the game right. I don't think that continuing to make handhelds the way they have up until now will be the way Nintendo goes. They need a more smart device like system in future.



ledreppe commented on Three New LEGO Games Heading for Nintendo Hard...:

Damnit! Stop announcing more Lego games that cover x number of films and include new films as free dlc. I'm still waiting for the Hobitt 3rd part that was promised to be downloadable when the 3rd film came out. I haven't heard any word of it since the original game released!



ledreppe commented on Nintendo Download: 25th December (Europe):

Waiting until next Wednesday to grab Another World 20th Anniversary before temp. discount runs out. Until then I'll be playing Pokemon Omega Ruby, and still busy with Smash on Wii U to be getting any Wii U downloads.



ledreppe commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

Well I have everything except X1, and while I used to play quite alot of the Vita, I'm more inclined to pickup the 3DS or Wii U pro controller. All the good PS4 games I bought it for are either delayed or still in development. That is the only reason I haven't parted with it. If they don't keep me interested after those games I could well say goodbye to Playstation.

I've pre-ordered the new xl from Play Asia, but still thinking maybe the standard one is better. I've got the old xl now, so any advice would help! IIt will be shipped by end of next week, so I need to make my mind up soon.



ledreppe commented on Review: Ultimate NES Remix (3DS):

I've been trying to decide on my next handheld game, and I was going to get this if nothing compelling was announced in tomorrow's download article. Guess this review has made me realise I should get it on my Wii U one day. May get Theatrhythm Curtain Call, or DoDo Master on iOS instead.



ledreppe commented on Captain Toad's Joined by Toadette in Treasure ...:

Well I don't pre-order any more. So whether I get this on day 1 depends on what else is out at the time, and given the time of year probably not much. There are many games out this and next month which I'll be catching up on until after the new year. I may wait for a price drop if it's not compelling enough by comparison.



ledreppe commented on Wii U System Update 5.2.0 Brings Folders, New ...:

@Sadodi Does it mention a lack of power to the hardrive? That's what I got and it was nothing to do with the usb cable. I still say you should phone the Nintendo Service Center, they were very helpful to me and I got an extra years warranty be ause hardware repairs had to be made to my Wii U.



ledreppe commented on Wii U System Update 5.2.0 Brings Folders, New ...:

@Sadodi I had the same problem. I ended up having to get my Wii U fixed at Nintendo, and then my hard drive heads got misaligned and I had to buy another hard drive (one on Nintendo's recommended list this time). Ever since, I've had no problems, but yeah the May update seemed to cause more problems than it solved. I'd recommend phoning the Nintendo Service Center.



ledreppe commented on Nintendo Celebrates Its 125th Anniversary:

Nintendo has always been, and always will be, my first choice for video games each gen. I have so many happy memories over the last 25 years. Many more happy returns to you, Nintendo!
