My circle pad broke off after many, many hours of frantic Animal Crossing New Leaf play. But Nintendo came to the rescue and installed an entire new pad assembly, free of charge.
Mk_II commented on The GameCube is 13 Years Old:
MK Double Dash!!, Rogue Squadron II, Waverace Blue Storm, 1080 Avalanche, WInd Waker... the list of GC classics is pretty impressive in my opinion. First home console i ever bought was a black Cube with Mario Kart. Good times!
Mk_II commented on Hands On: Exploring the Four New Tables of Zen...:
I'll consider a purchase if they fix the bugs in the older tables
Mk_II commented on Demo for Super Smash Bros. 3DS Announced for N...:
Got the codes (EU) but the demo only supports LOCAL multi-player and i have no 3DS friends near me...
Mk_II commented on Weirdness: A Pokémon Fan Broke into the White...:
A more substantial or higher fence would send the wrong signal and make no difference when someone really wants to enter the grounds. But you can be sure the fence is just the visible perimeter - every inch will be covered by camera, motion detectors and other electronic devices that will pick up anything before it even crosses the fence.
Mk_II commented on Nintendo Launches a Free 3DS Game Promotion in...:
this just might seduce me to get a 2DS
Mk_II commented on NES-Themed Nintendo 3DS XL On The Way as GameS...:
The NES livery looks awesome but by not including a pre-installed game they basically jacked up the price by 40$. Smart move because hardware collectors will snap this up regardless.
Mk_II commented on Feature: The Nintendo 64 Controller and the Ri...:
@Nintenjoe64 Actually, this specific controller was made for someone who plays a lot of Star Wars Episode 1 Racer.
Mk_II commented on Yokai Watch 2 Finally Stripped of its Top Posi...:
I see that Microsoft Japan is still forcing its employees to buy a Xbox 360 every week
Mk_II commented on Mario Kart 8 Leads Nintendo Nominees in Golden...:
Zelda should pick up the best handheld game award but will probably lose out to something like Flappy Turd
Mk_II commented on Register Smash Bros. on Both Wii U and 3DS and...:
Very tempting to get both versions now
Mk_II commented on Reaction: Picking Apart The New Nintendo 3DS A...:
Certainly don't need a new XL but will just as certainly get one anyway.
Mk_II commented on Mario Kart 8 Update, Mercedes Karts and DLC Pr...:
It puts some extra money into Nintendo's coffers in this financial year instead of next year when pack #2 is released
Mk_II commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:
Now we know what those cup icons that were discovered by some hackers are intended for. Makes you wonder if the actual DLC course data isn't already on the disc too
Mk_II commented on Review: Mega Man Battle Chip Challenge (Wii U ...:
Bought this when the GBA was still current gen. What a mistake!
Mk_II commented on Microsoft's Phil Spencer Lays Down Ice Bucket ...:
The Regginator is so cool, that water will freeze the moment it hits him.
Mk_II commented on Talking Point: The Pokémon Trading Card Game ...:
Nintendo shares are already up on this news so investors seem to agree.
Mk_II commented on Expect a 'Shocking' New Pokémon Project on 26...:
Pokemon Snap U would make a lot of sense. The touchpad controller is made for a game like that and it would probably draw in a lot of younger players to the platform.
Mk_II commented on Nintendo Offers Condolences to Robin Williams'...:
The NPC could be called Mork
Mk_II commented on Clever Flower Pot Lets You Plant a Pokémon Am...:
Clever and cool
Mk_II commented on Donkey Kong Jr. Math Arriving on the Wii U Vir...:
I really wonder why Nintendo insists on releasing so many mediocre NES games that nobody ever asked for. Such a waste of time and effort. Put out the best 20 or 30, ditto for the SNES and then move on to the N64 and Gamecube classics.
Mk_II commented on The Virtual Boy is 19 Years Old, Probably Hasn...:
Although the VB was indeed never released in Europe (now there's one advantage of staggered releases for ya!) there is one on display at the headquarters of Nintendo Benelux here in the Netherlands.
Mk_II commented on A Pre-order of Sonic Boom Will Bag You an Excl...:
Hah! You can still find the odd Sonic Colours for Wii on sale for peanuts with an equally horrible "exclusive" figurine. I'll just wait till this one is priced down to 10 euro as well.
Mk_II commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Ambitious amiibo Pla...:
Pricing will be key.
Mk_II commented on Skylanders Trap Team Tablet Starter Pack Poses...:
AFAIK most tablets - certainly those marketed to kids - have a rather underwhelming GPU? Wonder how this will perform.
Mk_II commented on Zen Studios States That Wii U Pinball News is ...:
How about some bug fixes first?
Mk_II commented on Steel Diver: Sub Wars Gets an Upgrade to Versi...:
send short pre-set messages? Excellent!
Mk_II commented on Gallery: A Closer Look At 13 amiibo Toys:
All very lovely but i don't like the poses that require support beams (like Link's).
Mk_II commented on Rare Co-Founder Tim Stamper Is Back In The Gam...:
The Stamper Bros. at Ultimate Play The Game were essential in development the early British 8 bit home computer scene. They set the standard and produced 100% machine coded and original arcade quality games software when other companies were churning out really awful shovelware They were also the first Western company to notice a quirky new Japanese home console called the Famicom and the threat it posed to their existing business. They sold the Ultimate trademark to Ocean, started Rare and met the challenge.
Mk_II commented on Review: Pop'n Twinbee (Wii U eShop / Super Nin...:
The co-op mode is very good indeed
Mk_II commented on Hacker Claims to Demonstrate an Exploit to Mod...:
Wii U doesn't need homebrew. it is very easy now to become an offical developer and most of the Wii homebrew was really terrible anyway.
Mk_II commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Should Beware the Slip...:
It all depends on HOW they implement this. It would be easy to filter out opponents that have or do not have the DLC. Or they could just replace the Mercedes kart with the default kart if you don't have the DLC. There are more ways to skin a cat (or kart)
If you don't like it, don't get the DLC.
Mk_II commented on Review: Pac-Land (Wii U eShop / NES):
Pity.. the arcade original was quite a challenging game and sucked lots of coins from my pockets.
Mk_II commented on FIFA 15 Is Lacing Its Boots For A Wii And 3DS ...:
Frankly, who cares about FIFA anymore? In my opinion it's just shovelware nowadays.
Mk_II commented on E3 2014: Amiibo Figures Will Have A Price Tag ...:
If Nintendo is clever, they'd price them below the Skylanders and Disney toys.
Mk_II commented on Mario Maker to Include Additional Graphical St...:
I'd really like to be able to import graphics and/or sounds.
Mk_II commented on Nintendo Spain Secures Win Over R4 Card Retailer:
These cards really hurt the industry here in the Netherlands. You could see the NDS shelf space disappearing in all the shops and this left only a few Nintendo releases and the latest Pixar/Disney shovelware available.
Mk_II commented on Russian Phenomenon Tetris Celebrates Its 30th ...:
My first Teris was a 3D version for PC that also included the classic 2D evrsion
Mk_II commented on Star Fox's Iconic Blue-Marine Is Descending To...:
Nice update but i'm a bit disappointed in the new Artic Circle map; it's too claustrofobic for my taste
Mk_II commented on Month of Mario Kart: Clones And Alternatives t...:
Don't forget about Street Racer, a very enjoyable kart game on SNES that's actually on a par with Super Mario Kart except for the character roster.
Mk_II commented on Nintendo Announces The GameCube Controller Ada...:
Mk_II commented on Steel Diver Version 2.0 Delayed, Now Targeting...:
I have been waiting for this update but understand how delays can happen. A couple more weeks won't matter because i've got Mario Kart 8 to keep me happy
Mk_II commented on Poll: A Tale of Two Blockbusters as Mario Kart...:
MK8 doesn't have to "win" the weekly charts. The best Nintendo games are evergreens, they keep selling throughout a console's lifetime or even beyond.
Mk_II commented on Here Are Plenty of Lovely Hyrule Warriors Scre...:
Oh yeah... me want!
Mk_II commented on The Wii U Version Of Super Smash Bros. Will Ut...:
I knew it! Smart move i think

I know it had to happen some time but i honestly feel this is way too soon.
Mk_II commented on Wii U Reportedly Uses Less Energy to Run Than ...:
Yet Nintendo always scores the worst in Greenpeace annual electronics report. Why? Because they don't play along with that theatre and don't submit the data Greenpeace demands.
