Nintenjoe64 commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Problems With Trends and...:

I think a bigger problem is that Sony have the gaming media in their pocket and Nintendo have gone from having the best marketing they've ever had to the worst in about 3 years. At the moment, Nintendo could try to sell the Holodeck from Star Trek for £99 with the best versions of every popular game and people would still be turned off by it.

These things go in cycles so I expect all this to change in the next couple of generations. We should stop talking about it and start playing :)



Nintenjoe64 commented on Poll: Would You Like Mario Kart 8 and Super Sm...:

I find the way they do everything to be completely backwards. MKW sold 30M+ units and the reward for fans was a sequel with slightly less content than MKW. Brawl sold less well than MKW and SSBU seems to be bigger than Brawl.

By now we should have every retro track available (preferably for free) and 32 new tracks before DLC gets a look in. Hopefully MKNX finally gives us the ultimate Mario Kart game.

I'm not complaining though, MK8 is excellent and the DLC is the best value you could hope for.

@Sonicfan11589 you can play it with a classic controller.

This game is alright, the display options are OK but you can't customise the gamepad controls so ZR is always "VC Menu" when it is much nicer to play with ZR for drifting. To me it ruins the whole off-tv feature of this game. Hope they can update this.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Video: Super Mario 64 Leaps Onto Wii U Virtual...:

I'm a bit disappointed by DK64 and MKDS. DK64 is funny but compared to 60Hz Mario it looks horrible. I hope Ocarina is the US version.

I don't know who the genius at Nintendo is who thinks ZR should be the options button. Is there a way to customise DS controls?



Nintenjoe64 commented on Nintendo Download: 2nd April (North America):

Are the N64 games rendered in a higher res? The polygons look less jagged than I thought they would on my 50" TV.

For the first time in months I can safely say that NA Wii U owners are missing out. We got 4 games in Europe! DK64 Mwhahahaha!

They had me at 'next Nintendo console'.

I don't really care as long as they give me a few more games after Zelda for my Wii U and open up the Wii VC for gamepad play (which they already confirmed will happened for some Wii games but they were probably lying).



Nintenjoe64 commented on Reaction: The Nintendo 'NX', and Why We Think ...:

I liked the "Nintendo Fusion" rumours that did the rounds. I would prefer a complementary handheld and console than two completely separate systems. I think the Wii U would have been much better as a powerful standalone console that could tether with a 3DS to make games like Nintendoland. They've teased us with the feature since the GBA/GC days.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's DeNA Plans and Ideas...:

It's a shame that NX in 2017 will probably be 2019. I hope Nintendo make so much F2P money that they can afford treat their loyal servants to a proper gaming machine like the good old days! I want a console that does more for gaming than the N64 did!



Nintenjoe64 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's DeNA Plans and Ideas...:

This is different to anything Sega did during its demise. If Sega had the option to publish their back catalogue on hardware with a billion users they might still be able to make consoles (and good sonic games?). I don't think it's a misstep if they make sure their iOS games are sufficiently different. All I need is Advance Wars



Nintenjoe64 commented on Review: Mario Party 10 (Wii U):

There's plenty of good reasons for this and many other Nintendo games to not be online but in 2015 they should at least be thinking of adding an online mode that's tweaked to suit online multiplayer.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Mario Kart 8 Misses Out at BAFTA Game Awards, ...:

Mario Kart is great and deserves awards but it can't win them all and the game is barely advertised in UK so it doesn't surprise me the judges didn't vote for it. I think Titanfall was a more fun new game than Destiny but everyone would complain even more if that had won. If they were realistic about the most loved games in UK then FIFA, Football Manager, Bejewelled Clone 35 and F2P collectathon would probably win every year.

Right I am off to play Mario Kart



Nintenjoe64 commented on Video: Fan Manages to Port F-Zero to the Mega ...:

Glad to see SNES still reigns supreme.

I love how everyone thinks they know who actually makes the decisions at Nintendo. It might seem like Iwata but I reckon it's a bunch of manatees. At the very least I think the lack of hardware power is a combination of people within Nintendo who veto anything they don't like the sound of rather than Iwata being the driving force behind making weak consoles.

I'd like to seem him go though because their hardware isn't as good as it should be, they sit on good IP, milk the mediocre stuff and refuse to market anything properly.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Feature: Five Remastered Games We'd Love to Pl...:

Nintendo should release Pikmin 1 & 2 as DLC for Pikmin 3.

Pretty much all of the first party games from N64 and Gamecube would be welcome remakes for me on either console but I'd prefer they just made new versions or ultimate versions like F-Zero X + GX online and the same with Waverace, 1080 and Pilotwings



Nintenjoe64 commented on Interplay Is Remastering Cult SNES Brawler Cla...:

I rented the main ones for their respective consoles back in the day and they never lived up to MK2 or SF2. I'm not good enough at any of my other current fighting games to warrant buying another one yet!

I wonder if we get a Rise of the Robots or Tuff E Nuff remake next!



Nintenjoe64 commented on Nintendo Download: 5th March (Europe):

I don't think I will be visiting the eshop until Nintendo have released a Wii game with added Wii U gamepad controls. I would like to think that as soon as they can do that, they can open the whole Wii shopping channel.

This isn't the worst week by a long shot but it's not good.
