MrMagpie commented on Wii U Panorama View Demo is Awesome:
That looks um wow.
MrMagpie commented on Miyamoto Working On Secret, Original Game:
@SLiM No, its going to be the obnoxious mother-in-law game...
MrMagpie commented on Australian Board Rates Ubisoft's First Ever Vi...:
The GBC rayman was...ummm...not bad. But I was just playing the hell out SMB Deluxe...superior platforming.
MrMagpie commented on Review: Metroid Fusion ( / Game Boy Advance):
Zero Mission always had the edge on this one for me, but only because of the fact that Fusion is much more linear, whereas ZM seemed to be built around sequence breaking, even rewarding you if you skipped out 85% of the items (including the long, charge and wave beams if I remember rightly, as well as most of the other seemingly crucial gear) with some rather cool art, encouraging you not to just blindly go where the Chozo statues directed. I have fond, fond memories of both though.
MrMagpie commented on New Kid Icarus: Uprising Trailer Shows Dark Pit:
Oh god the dialogue is terrible. The voices are OK...it's just what they are saying...
MrMagpie commented on Symphonic Concert is the Latest 3D Nintendo Video:
Wow, they should do this for the zelda concerts.
MrMagpie commented on Feature: Resident Evil's Most Nightmare-Induci...:
My whole first playthrough of the REmake was horrific. Crimson heads, the dog corridor (being uninitiated I went through it twice), the bit where you are forced to make a blood filled, chained up coffin fall to the ground in the name of getting a key rather than shooting the locks off doors, zombies lunging out of wardrobes...loved it.
MrMagpie commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Anniv...:
I was always annoyed that the game included on the LTTP cart never had single player. This solves the problem nicely
MrMagpie commented on Nintendo Download: 29th September 2011 (Europe):
MrMagpie commented on Talking Point: Why No Plans for GBA on 3DS Vir...:
I'm fairly sure the wording of the ambassador press release was 'currently no plans' to put the on VC. So option D, in the future those plans will be made.
MrMagpie commented on Events: Eurogamer Expo 2011:
Fingers crossed for monster hunter localisation announcement.
MrMagpie commented on Meet Resident Evil Revelations' Rachel in Exte...:
Jill, a clue: she isn't a "survivor".
MrMagpie commented on Animal Crossing 3DS Looks Suitably Relaxing:
I find animal crossing very demanding...you have to do so much to maintain your village and rewards are so limited. And Wild World required daily care - leave it for a week, and your village is full of weeds! I'll probably pass.
MrMagpie commented on Check Out the Concept Trailer for Monster Hunt...:
Also @Highwinter One of my biggest complaints was that Tri's free hunt was restricted to one area (the first), maybe that'll change.Also, this looks like there might be set piece scenarios, as in missions that require you not just to 'kill the rathalos', but require you to actively chase it down (not just establish what area it is in).
Come on NoE - if you can give us xenoblade, you have no excuse for not giving us this!
MrMagpie commented on 3DS Second Circle Pad Formally Announced:
1 AAA battery?...It better not suck it dry in minutes...
MrMagpie commented on Round Table: The Ambassador NES Games:
Zelda II - wouldn't have played it if it weren't for this. It's horrible. It's difficult. It's cruel. I love it.
MrMagpie commented on Talking Point: The Second Circle Pad and the 3...:
If a we get a "3ds lite" before dec of 2012, I will be expecting another ambassador scheme.
MrMagpie commented on Talking Point: The Future of No-Frills Emulati...:
I want wi-fi multiplayer on my vc please.
MrMagpie commented on Hear the Roar of More Monster Hunter 3G Shots ...:
Graphics look saweet! (Now localise please).
MrMagpie commented on Rumour: Yoshi 3DS, Super Mario 3D Land Demo an...:
A new game from Intelligent Systems? 3DS wars please - that'd be an instabuy from me. Maybe then we'd get AW 1 or 2 to warm us ambassadors up.
MrMagpie commented on Talking Point: The Five Remaining GBA Ambassad...:
I'd like minish cap, zero mission (although with fusion already announced this seems unlikely), Kirby and the Amazing Mirror, Advance Wars and any 'proper' mario platformer.
MrMagpie commented on Review: Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (NES):
I got this as part of the ambassador deal, and was made a bit nervous by some of the above comments, but am currently playing it and like it a lot more than the original LOZ. 7 does seem a fair score though - as with most NES games, technology seems to be holding it back.
MrMagpie commented on Expect New Product Announcements at 3DS Confer...:
What I want: Metroid Dread. What it will be: not that
MrMagpie commented on Nintendo Download: 1st September (Europe):
Anyone else notice that when downloading ambassador titles, the usual dropping balls were replaced with hearts? N'aww, thanks ninty
MrMagpie commented on Review: Gargoyle's Quest (3DS Virtual Console ...:
@Dizzard Xenoblade seems like it will occupy me for all eternity. Don't think I'm much past the half way point and have been putting in some pretty lengthy sessions over the past week. I agree, no time for anything else
MrMagpie commented on New Kirby Wii Shots Brighten Up Our Day:
Is that a Kuribo's Shoe rip off?
MrMagpie commented on Review: Xenoblade Chronicles (Wii):
This game is the best thing I've played in a long time. I can only hope for an HD WiiU sequel...that would blow my mind further!
MrMagpie commented on Wii Owners Encounter Xenoblade Disc Read Errors:
Mine is fine, but I have never had a problem with brawl or other m...maybe I'm just lucky.
MrMagpie commented on Roll With this New Trailer for Star Fox 64 3D:
Slippy's voice /still/ makes me want to kill myself.
MrMagpie commented on Super Mario Land 2 and Metroid II Heading to 3...:
Lot of love for Metroid II, even though it's lack of a map is a little infuriating.
MrMagpie commented on UK 3DS High Street Price Drop Round-Up:
OUCH...I'm still pretty happy with my ambassador deal, although when my 'exclusive' GBA titles are (as they inevitably will be) made available to the public, I might feel a bit annoyed...
MrMagpie commented on Nintendo Download: 11th August 2011 (North Ame...:
WiiVC lives it seems...just not where I am...
MrMagpie commented on Talking Point: The Future of Metroid:
Metroid is possibly my favourite ninty franchise, but it's been too long since we had a proper 2D entry and I played both Zero Mission and Fusion to death when they came out. I still consider ZM to be the definitive Metroid experience, as it catered for some fantastic things - full % runs, ridiculously fast speed runs and even the 15% run (managed it on normal, but not on Hard, which is a shame as you unlock some sweet artwork)...sigh, unlikely to be an Ambassador title though, seeing as we're getting fusion...
MrMagpie commented on Nintendo Download: 11th August 2011 (Europe):
Avenging spirit actually looks OK...maybe I will get it.
MrMagpie commented on Feature: Staff Roundtable - Metroid's Past, Pr...:
What's with the mystery ship at the end of corruption? Please resolve nintendo.
MrMagpie commented on Nintendo Won't Keep Miis Cooped Up in the Plaza:
I am still yet to have a single streetpass hit.
MrMagpie commented on Rumour: Kirby's Amazing Mirror for 3DS GBA Vir...:
Am I right in thinking Amazing mirror is kirby gone metroidvania? If so, sounds saweeet.
MrMagpie commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Makes Bold Move with t...:
I'm more than happy with my 20 free games, but maybe because I already paid £40 less than the RRP when I bought it! These games ARE genuine classics though, not shovelware, and as such, I am thoroughly ready to forgive ninty.
MrMagpie commented on Talking Point: The GBA Games You Want on 3DS V...:
Seeing as metroid zero mission is possiibl my favourite game ever (the only thing I never did on it was the 15% run in hard mode, did it on normal and it nearly killed me), that, but also advance wars (1 and 2), Minish Cap as I never played it, and castlevaaaaania.
MrMagpie commented on FAQ: Nintendo Ambassador Program and Free eSho...:
I'd rather have zero mission than fusion, but no complaints, fusion is great, and free
MrMagpie commented on Nintendo UK's Metroid Hub is Open to Visitors:
New game pls.
MrMagpie commented on Capcom COO Thinks Monster Hunter Will Make It ...:
A version for both? That sounds horrendously like we might get a port or something, not something built ground up for 3ds...
MrMagpie commented on Super Mario 3DS Has a Wardrobe of Famous Power...:
Kuribo's shoe please (but keep at as a sort of easter egg, the only reason it's special is cos its found in just one level!)
MrMagpie commented on Nintendo Download: 7th July (Europe):
More GBC games please?
MrMagpie commented on Kid Icarus: Uprising's AR Card Battles are Bou...:
AR pokemon cards. THEY WILL HAPPEN
MrMagpie commented on Review: Double Dragon (Game Boy):
I've never enjoyed Double Dragon, so sadly, doesn't look like this will change my mind. I'll save my money for Kirby's Dream Land (c'mon ninty, Japan has it).
MrMagpie commented on WayForward Pursuing Shantae for 3DS Virtual Co...:
I found the DSiWare sequel to be, frankly, a disappointment, especially after the perfect review it scored here. Can't say I'm too excited.
MrMagpie commented on Pachter: Wii U is Too Late, 'Dumbest Name Ever':
Impactful is not a word.
MrMagpie commented on The Rolling Western:
That trailer just makes me want to play Majora's Mask, Playing as a Goron is so fun...
