MeddlingIdiot commented on Video: We Tackle the Legendary Hyrule Warriors...:

The game's still serving me well, so I've not gotten around to the DLC yet, and with Bayonetta just around the corner Hyrule Warriors may have to go on the back burner for a while. Fortunately, as entertaining as Smash is on the 3DS I'm by no means hooked, which means more Wii U time for me.



MeddlingIdiot commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

7/10 is what I thought it'd get to be honest. Doesn't bother me though, that's still a good score for a spin-off of one of the best best gaming IPs of all time. Friday can't come soon enough! :)



MeddlingIdiot commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer?:

Super Mario World got my vote but it was tough deciding on that or Galaxy. SMW won out due to it's replayability, though I'm not saying Galaxy isn't replayable, it's just that there are two Galaxy games and only one SMW. I must of played it at least 20 times.



MeddlingIdiot commented on Feature: Hyrule Warriors - Everything We Know ...:

With all the characters and locations gathered together in this article, I'm starting to get quite excited about this one now. I'm not sure how long it'll hold my interest for but I'm sure it'll at least be great for some short, nostalgia-based bursts now and then.



MeddlingIdiot commented on Feature: A Night At The Theatre With Symphonic...:

Unfortunately I was unable to attend this concert although I went to the 25th Anniversary and last year's Symphony of the Goddesses, which were phenomenal. It does sound like this performance was put together in a short amount of time, which is a shame considering admission price. Hopefully the official tour will roll though the UK again at some point in the near future, as Eimear Noone certainly knows what she's doing.



MeddlingIdiot commented on Reaction: Our Thoughts on Nintendo's Big Day a...:

I see the lack of anything from Retro Studios and Next Level Games as a positive. Yesterday's event was really strong without those two studios in the mix, which is a testament to Nintendo's output. Obviously Retro and Next Level will have something to show us in the near future - that will most likely blow our minds - and knowing that's yet to come on top of what we saw yesterday... Well, it's certainly a great time to be a Nintendo fan!



MeddlingIdiot commented on Mario Kart Month: Keeping the Mario Kart 8 Rac...:

@minotaurgamer There are no hints to DLC within the game as far as I know, but there were no hints within Pikmin 3's menus either, until Nintendo released a software update.

DLC being available for a Mario Kart 8 in the future is by no means a far fetched idea, infact it's entirely plausible based upon the reasons given. This article is also clearly speculative, so it shouldn't come across as misleading. :)



MeddlingIdiot commented on There's No Chance of Super NES Mortal Kombat T...:

Ed Boon said there was a story behind not bringing the games to the Virtual Console that he'd love to share one day. He also made the point that the SNES version didn't play as well as its Mega Drive counterpart, as one of the reasons for Mortal Kombat remaining absent from VC.



MeddlingIdiot commented on Talking Point: What We Want To See From Ninten...:

Personally, I'd like to stick with physical media for as long as possible, especially with the current lack of a backup system if your 3DS dies or gets lost. Regarding the cross-buy side of things, that really is something they need to sort out pronto, but as long as people buy multiple copies of the same game, why would they stop doing it. Maybe unified accounts would solve both issues?



MeddlingIdiot commented on Rumour: Nintendo Will Reveal New Hardware At T...:

@allav866 But the Wii U's backwards compatibility isn't really an additional cost to Nintendo like the Wii's GC backwards compatibility was. Besides there's a ton of Wii software out there, so it'd still be a huge selling point for new buyers who've been on the fence about upgrading.



MeddlingIdiot commented on Rumour: Nintendo Will Reveal New Hardware At T...:

If this turns out to be true, which I personally doubt, then I can't imagine it'd be a totally new console or handheld. If it was I'm sure they'd be doing a live stage show presentation, not just the Nintendo Direct style video. Didn't Iwata say we probably wouldn't hear anything about QoL until 2015?



MeddlingIdiot commented on Feature: All the Important Details From the Ma...:

The new Bowser Castle looks incredible and I loved the segment on the live soundtrack. The UK Direct was a tad annoying, those voice overs were really distracting. I think Nintendo seem to of made the right steps in making MK8 appeal to a wider audience though. That tournament feature will get lapped up by hardcore gamers everywhere and that free game promotion is a great incentive for those thinking about picking up a Wii U for Mario Kart, as well as getting current owners to up MK8's first month (or two's) sales globally.
