Lord commented on Analyst Thinks Nintendo Is Already Winding Dow...:

I not sure you could call it dead, with plenty of releases between now and q3 2016. But if you have a pro type console like NX and the possible release in q4 2016 then you will need to move a considerable chunk of development across to create launch titles and we know Nintendo is crap at launch content! So why not start now! We know NEAD are working on Mario NX. But who else and what else is the question. Have retro started on a NX game this could be implied from the leak they are working with a new engine? Who really knows for sure what Nintendo is upto but all I'm focused on is E3 !



Lord commented on Review: Mario Kart DS (Wii U eShop / DS):

Good rewiew but still needs more negatives towards Nintendo aproach to gaming. If more reviewers score Nintendo games badly due to lack of online or voice chat. Nintendo will buckle and add them. It's just that games which focus on these features still get 10/10 from reviewers that Nintendo feel that adding voice chat and online won't effect the score so no need.



Lord commented on Video: Donkey Kong 64 Tumbles Onto Wii U Virtu...:

@Sanicranfast This does not answer my question. I am aware that Microsoft bought Rare but did they buy 'Ultimate -play the game' ? This is the company created by the stamper bros before they created Rare. Microsoft may have bought rare Ips but as Ultimate was a different company I'm convinced they would have not bought this as well. Meaning that Ips owned by 'Ulitmate-play the game' still are owned by the stamper bros. Thoughts?



Lord commented on Buy Three Nintendo 64 and DS Virtual Console G...:

The current 007 license is held by Activison.
Shame the games have headed back to 50hz and without online for games which had online (mario kart).
This is the most bizarre line up ever, I know yoshi yarn is coming but two yoshi ds titles WHY?
If they seem to be porting wii to wii u N64 games then we will be getting wave racer and 1080 and cruising USA. :)



Lord commented on Preview: We Take Aim at Splatoon to See if It ...:

NO VOICE CHAT! No voice chat means I’m not buying! The problem with Nintendo sites, reviewers, and magazine articles is they suck up to nintendo when it comes to review scores. Splatoon will probably get a 8 or a 9 but without voice chat it should score 5, mario kart, smash, etc should all be scored on the experience without chat which would be incredibly lower than what they got, just saying this game is great but without voice chat that’s a shame 10/10 is just a cop out! Once reviews start to slam Nintendo games for not having voice chat then and only then will Nintendo start using it!



Lord commented on Exclusive: Affordable Space Adventures Pricing...:

I was interested in this until I watched the crapy video by Nintendo life. Now discovering this indie title will be £17 that's the biggest turn off ever.
Sorry but at that price I'm NOT interested!



Lord commented on These 3D Printed New Nintendo 3DS Cover Plates...:

Great news guys we custom print directly onto your 3DS all you need to do is send us your artwork and we will quote to print 'directly' onto your 3DS. Even better is that we can build up the print layers to give a 3D finish like Braille.
UK only.
And of course we can print on any attachable face plates, armour or clam cases etc.



Lord commented on Nintendo Download: 12th March (Europe):

I got a feeling that the metroid zero mission is a knee jurk reaction to the extremely high sales of metroid prime trilogy. Which is the fourth highest selling EShop title of all time!



Lord commented on Interview: Nintendo's Damon Baker on the eShop...:

I've written a game and need a programmer but because I live in the UK we have no indie events for me to attend and what's worst is I live in Cambridge the gaming capital of the UK every programmer is already employed! Why does this roadshow not appear in the UK? :(



Lord commented on IronFall: Invasion, Nintendo Anime Channel and...:

Can they make valentines any more expensive, new 3ds xl, new 3ds xl case, new 3ds xl screen protector, new charger, new charger dock, new micro 32gb sd card, monster hunter 4, ace combat, Majora mask, iron fall..... Thank god anime Chanel is free I can get this and a card for the girlfriend :)



Lord commented on Nintendo Download: 29th January (Europe):

Actually looking at the direct and the retail versions, no gamepad or pro support on metroid, but pandoras tower and sin & punishment used a controller so these should use gamepad and pro! :)



Lord commented on Nintendo Download: 29th January (Europe):

Another great game ruined by wiimote!
I've got metroid on disc and I can't say the wii mote versions are an improvement lets hope for gamepad or pro controller support! Please!



Lord commented on Review: Lucadian Chronicles (Wii U eShop):

@PinkSpider I contacted dark roast reference an euro release here is what they had to say.
We are going to start thinking about localization in January, after we've gotten our first patch out. It really just depends on whether it looks financially viable, it is something we'd like to do. If you stay tuned to our Twitter (@DarkRoastEnt) we'll probably have an update on there at some point.
