I have seen the review version being played in split-screen mode and it is without a doubt the best looking Wii U game so far and gives both the XB1 and PS4 a run for their money. Silky smooth, incredibly detailed and fast... we're gonna love it.

I visited Nintendo Benelux yesterday and they were demoing MK8 to some press guys. It really looks absolutely amazing and very smooth.

ive said it before: all the home consoles will face exactly the same challenges. Two out of the three major regions are still in recession. And the differences between this and the last gen aren't convincing enough people to upgrade now at considerable cost.

"Nintendo has been in the game long enough to know what does and doesn't work.".Hear hear! And Sub Wars is an excellent example. I haven't splashed out on the full version (yet?) but the game is just as enjoyable for freemium players. And because there is no entry fee, the servers are crowded and there is always a batlle waiting for you.

Back in the day, my ex-GF introduced me to Nintendo gaming by way of Super Mario Wprld but most of all Donkey Kong Country. She was way better than me and couldn't stand it when it kept making the same stupid mistakes... LOL. Those were the days!

@luke88 they say the motherboard and/or GPU are fried because the air vents got clogged up with dust. And according to them that's a user error and not covered by warranty, I wrote them a letter explaining the situation but they haven't even answered.

Way too early in my opinion. Running a couple of servers really isn't that expensive. And because Nintendo refuses to repair my Wii U i'm not too happy that they are now cutting off my old Wii from the internets. Bad move Nintendo!

Mk_II commented on Review: Steel Diver: Sub Wars (3DS eShop):

@1337man1233 well i think that's a given IF the DLC proves to be selling well. Then we'll very likely see scenario packs, more historical submarines etc. I must say i am sorely tempted to get the full price version. The multi-player matches are lots of fun even though i usually quickly sink without a trace :)

Nintendo of Europe has always depended on local subsidiaries / partners to handle distribution & marketing. These relationships often go back a good number of years but i think they are currently reviewing all their local operations. People have gotten a bit complacent perhaps and it won't hurt to shake things up a little.
