Mk_II commented on Anniversary: The Nintendo DS is Now 10 Years Old:

When the DS was about to be released, i received a special offer from NoE to purchase a limited edition VIP Pack with SM64 game and Metroid Hunters demo and a lovely T shirt for the same price as a regular DS. Best of all: you got your DS like two months before the official release date. Very cool!

Mk_II commented on Mario Kart 8 Software Update and DLC Available...:

The Hyrule and F-Zero tracks are truly amazing! The rest ain't bad either but those two really stand out. And i did not expect any of the DLC tracks to be playable online so that's a big plus. BTW: I noticed the update brought back a lot of high ranked players who had probably drifted off to Smash Bros 3DS

Mk_II commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:

People never mention the fact that the Wii U has a free online service. That saves me a lot of money over the years. Xbox One and PS4 charge you to go online and it's not cheap if you're on a very tight budget.

@rp17 Correct, i was talking about those clear plastic poles. Lots of Japanese anime figurines also have them and usually it just doesn't look right. And in this case (amiibo) it's not difficult to come up with a pose that doesn't require them.

Mk_II commented on Nintendo Region Locks Consoles To Get More Har...:

@chucknorrmis
I 'm still not convinced. A couple of thousand consoles will not make them do anything. Let's say 5000 consoles times 50 bucks (and they don't make 50$ per console) makes 250.000$. That's next to nothing for a multi-national company like Nintendo and certainly not a major reason for region locking.

Mk_II commented on Nintendo Region Locks Consoles To Get More Har...:

Oh please... how many people would actually buy a Japanese console to play import games? Even here on NintendoLife it would only be a tiny minority and i'm pretty sure that would not even offset the extra cost of implementing region locks. I sure hope this guy doesn't do any programming because his logic is seriously flawed.

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!

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.
