Mk_II commented on Rumour: Leading Japanese Game Company Kidnappe...:

@Mogster : except that i personally experienced a very similar stategy that included being forced to move to a former broom cupboard to work on projects that got cancelled or just binned. Terminating someone is expensive here and they reckoned it would be cheaper to bully me out.



Mk_II commented on Review: Stinger (Wii U eShop / NES):

@Spin interesting! It did remind me of the Twinbee mechanic but i never knew this was the start of the series. i used to play this weird Japanese import game on the SNES that i really loved. Years later - no internets in those days - i found out it was one of the Twinbee games. Konami used to make so many excellent games back in the day!



Mk_II commented on Talking Point: Super Mario Maker's Update Cont...:

I'm thinking / hoping that MK8 will offer one more DLC pack towards the end of the Wii U lifecycle. Judging by past performance, the next console will probably be backwards compatible so it would make sense to rekindle interest in the ultimate "evergreen" title



Mk_II commented on A Level Made by Shinya Arino Will Be Included ...:

Nice. I really love the way that Nintendo supports games in this way after launch. Splatoon is the prime example of how to keep a game fresh and exciting for many months. And it should be noted that most of the Big N's DLC is free to download without paying extra. A big plus for someone like me who has a very limited gaming budget.



Mk_II commented on The NES is Now 30 Years Old:

I've got one near mint & boxed NES stashed away and another one that's been hacked to remove the region check so i can play PAL and NTSC carts. Hooked up to a big old CRT TV and a 5.1 sound system. i've got about 250 NES cartridges and my current faves are Bubble Bobble, Metroid and Gradius.



Mk_II commented on Sources Suggest Nintendo NX Is A Fusion Of Hom...:

my 2 cents: it will be both a home and a mobile console. The home device is basically a docking station fitted with an optical drive but the CPU/GPU hardware is located in the portable device that has a HD touch screen and flash memory to install a couple of games.



Mk_II commented on Nintendo Selects Range on 3DS Has a Handsome P...:

Already have the games i want from this selection but that is a very sweet price point indeed. What's funny is that Starfox 3D was being sold for 10 or 15 euro some time ago because shops had a lot of unsold stock.

BTW did anyone notice that Nintendo of Europe has also priced down the recent Wii U titles like Splatoon and Woolly World? I think they're trying to drive home the selling point that Wii U is the most affordable home console



Mk_II commented on Midora Developer Admits He Knew Kickstarter Fu...:

So, the 60.000$ was frittered away on some artwork and "existing debts" and it would not be enough anyway. Isn't it a violation of Kickstarter rules if you don't expect to deliver the product? What a scam...
