Mandalore commented on Review: F-Zero: GP Legend (Wii U eShop / Game ...:

@vaguerant agreed, I find it odd why so many seem to despise Maximum Velocity yet love GP Legend. It seems mostly superficial things like 'more' ships, 'more' tracks and familiar characters & locations. Even though the 10 MV ships have much more variety in handling and boosting than the 34 odd in GPL, and the GPL tracks are mostly poorly designed and half are clones with minor differences. Difficulty in GPL is also non existent, I guess that helps.

I still like GPL though, Zero Tests and Time Trial are great.



Mandalore commented on Review: F-Zero Maximum Velocity (Wii U eShop /...:

Nice review. I only got to try multiplayer about once back in the day, the single player certainly kept me entertained enough though. I'm looking forward to challenging any times posted to Miiverse.

It's a shame so many dismiss this game without really giving it a chance. They added a lot of depth to the controls compared to the SNES original. Once you understand and get the hang of it, it's a joy to play.



Mandalore commented on Feature: Nintendo Games We'd Love to See in 2014:

A remake of a 14 year old game in more demand than almost everything other than Metroid Prime 4? No wonder series like F-Zero and Star Fox are pretty much dead. :/

An eShop F-Zero is a nice idea, gives fans the new game they're desperate for without requiring a huge development budget. And why not throw in some NFC figurines for each ship too, allow extra customisation like Pokemon Rumble U.



Mandalore commented on Events: Nintendo Life At Eurogamer Expo 2013:

Wow the StreetPass zone looks huge compared with when I was there in 2012. I was getting about 100 StreetPasses a day back then, how much were people getting this year?

Really regret missing out on tickets, I'll be buying 2014 tickets as soon as they're available!



Mandalore commented on Nintendo UK Announces National StreetPass Day:

This just happens to coincide with Swansea StreetPass Network's monthly meet up.

I've seen people mentioning the Midlands and Cornwall. Both have StreetPass groups. The Midlands one is brand new and the South West group is celebrating its 1st year anniversary at the end of the month. Check the StreetPassUK web site for details.
