NFreak007 commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Update 1.0....:

@Robo-Knight The replays aren't stored as videos. When you watch one you are seeing the game "re-enact" it in real time by imitating the fighters' movements. As this update changes the way some characters act, they wouldn't react the same way in these re-enactments as they did originally, so the replay would effectively be broken.



NFreak007 commented on Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies ...:

Oh man, I am SO excited about this! It's been over 3 1/2 years since we last got a new Ace Attorney game, and after AAI2 never got translated I was worried the series was dead outside Japan. This is a total insta-buy for me, and hopefully enough people agree with me so it sells well enough to secure the series' future and AAI2 becomes the exception rather than the norm.



NFreak007 commented on Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies ...:

Yes yes YES! I haven't been this excited about a game for a long, long time! I'll be downloading this as soon as it comes out! I just hope it sells enough to ensure that any future Ace Attorney titles are localised as well...



NFreak007 commented on Fresh Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Stock Arrives ...:

Weirdly it's the 3DS version I've been having trouble finding, not the Wii U version. My local GAME has had stock of the Wii U version since launch day, but I haven't seen a single copy of the 3DS version anywhere!



NFreak007 commented on Best Buy Canada Website Outs Wii Mini, States ...:

I suspect that this is more about reducing production costs than them feeling the need to make the Wii smaller. I don't think any of us really expected them to stop producing the Wii yet - they're still producing DS consoles almost 2 years after the 3DS launched! This is probably their way of ensuring that they can do so as efficiently as possible.



NFreak007 commented on Rumour: Wii Mini Console Outed By Retailer Re...:

I don't see why everyone thinks this is such a crazy rumour. They released a smaller NES after the SNES launched and then did the same with the SNES after the N64 launched, not to mention the Game Boy Micro coming well after the DS.

I don't think that they'll stop producing the Wii after the Wii U launches, the same as they still produce DS consoles post-3DS. A mini version would probably reduce their production costs so they could focus more on Wii U.



NFreak007 commented on File Sizes Revealed For 3DS eShop Retail Downl...:

Lots of them are the same sizes, specifically exactly 512MB/1GB. It looks like they're using the size of the cartridge the game uses rather than the size of the ROM itself. I'm not sure why they'd do that - maybe there's a technical reason for it but it seems like it could cause a lot of wasted space to me.



NFreak007 commented on Oster Lays Out WiiWare Criticisms:

I still can't believe that they withhold all profits until a certain sales figure is met. Is that standard practice or is this something unique to WiiWare?



NFreak007 commented on Now GAME Pulls The Last Story Completely:

In this interview from yesterday GAME's Group Marketing Director said the following:
Can you guarantee pre-orders for games that you are currently selling?
Anna-Marie Mason: Absolutely.

Or not, as it turned out. Honestly, I'm never pre-ordering anything from GAME again. Their service has really been going downhill lately, with pre-orders arriving days late without any explanation. This is the last straw for me. It's cheaper to go elsewhere, anyway.



NFreak007 commented on Review: The Last Story (Wii):

Does anyone know if this is a dual-layered disc or not? Xenoblade was in Europe because it included both the English and Japanese voice tracks, but I've not heard whether Last Story includes both as well.



NFreak007 commented on Nintendo Download: 2nd February 2012 (Europe):

Just felt I should point out that Mutant Mudds not being out in Europe yet isn't Nintendo's fault. Renegade Kid haven't been able to submit it yet.
Read the following quote from this article:
“The release of Mutant Mudds outside of the US will be delayed. This is due to Renegade Kid being a small studio. We have to take it one step at a time. Unfortunately, releasing a game in different countries is a time-consuming and costly business. But, rest assured that we will get Mutant Mudds into the UK as soon as possible.”



NFreak007 commented on Nintendo Has No Plans to Fix Mario Kart 7's Ma...:

The way I interpret this is that they have no way of patching the game so fixing the glitch would involve putting out a different version of the game on cartridges. This would disadvantage anyone who has the original version as their glitch wouldn't be fixed. Hopefully Nintendo will have a proper patchng system in place on Wii U - in the last few months we've had this and Skyward Sword, two of Nintendo's biggest games, suffer glitches which should be easily fixable.



NFreak007 commented on Monster Hunter 3 G Lurching Toward Europe:

The only source for this seems a preview in this month's issue of the UK Official Nintendo Magazine. If that's the case I wouldn't take it as confirmation of a European release. Trauma Team, Excitebots and Ace Attorney Investigations 2 all had previews in ONM but didn't come out in Europe.



NFreak007 commented on Japan Receives Red Wii in Honour of Mario's 25th:

So Japan gets all this cool stuff for the 25th Anniversary of Mario and what do we get? An advert with a bunch of celebrities no one likes telling us how great Mario games that most of us have already bought are. Great. Thanks a bunch, Nintendo UK!



NFreak007 commented on Big Nintendo News Incoming:

Whatever it is, the internet is bound to hate it, just like it hates anything that any company announces no matter how good it is. Unless it's something REALLY bad I'll probably be pleased. Shame I'll probably be the only one...



NFreak007 commented on Sonic Playable in Super Mario Galaxy 2?:

Ugh. I REALLY hope not. Or if they have to, at least give us the option to just play as Mario. Mario and Sonic are both great franchises, but combining them in a major Mario title just wouldn't work. Super Mario Galaxy 2 should remain just that: Super MARIO Galaxy.
