OldWeeDog commented on Mario Kart 8 Still Competing in Nordic Region ...:

I'm living in Finland (originally from Scotland) and I have to say that the Ninty advertising here is non- existent. I haven't seen any tv advertising or such. As for TL, I haven't seen it in any stores either. I also can't remember the last time I had a street pass hit. Other than that, I think that Ninty should push advertising more.

OldWeeDog commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

@Unca_Lz Why save it for later? It is just as relevant to the above discussion. It was the West that put the Taliban in power in Iraq in the first place. A 'normal' game for Japan gets translated and imported to the West. However, it is too shocking for some western sensibilities and dispositions so it needs to be 'boycotted' does anybody see an analogy here?

For Gods sake, who said anything about women being objectified? Why are games like GTA not being brought up where- dare I say it- prostitution is portrayed? Why is it only 1 game?

OldWeeDog commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

Hey all :) . Ok I've been following this for a while now. Here's my tuppence worth. It is only a game. If you want to get into the moral and ethics of it, then lets go. Remembering that you also need to talk about games like GTA, COD, Zombie U and the like. Different cultures have different tastes. I think that boycotting it is going OTT. If you don't like it then vote with you wallet, purse, bank card or whatever. What if the game portrayed you having 5,6 or more wives, like in some countries in Africa where it is normal? I bet the God Squad would be up in arms. Each to their own, thats what I say. It is only a game.
Live and let live.

OldWeeDog commented on Talking Point: Important Steps to Bring the 3D...:

@8bitforever
I also have a PS3 and I agree with what you said. Nintendo is losing people left , right and centre. I also think that Nintendo doesn't care. I mean, GBA games on the WiiU vc ? I think it should be Handheld for the 3DS and Console for the WIIU. Also, PSN knocks spots off the Nintendo set up. Like above comments, Nintendo doesn't have a lot of time as they are alienating gamers at a ferocious pace. We all could complain until we are blue in the face and all we would get is :

PLEASE UNDERSTAND!

SIGH....................

OldWeeDog commented on Talking Point: Important Steps to Bring the 3D...:

I just read the rumoured specs of the rumoured 'Fusion' console. That is what the wii u should have been. The rumoured specs of that machine would make it a beast. You are talking about a €800+ machine here. As for the article above; Ninty needs to get their finger out their a**es and listen to what their customers are wanting. They are slowly going up s*it creek without a paddle. I don't know what they are doing over there in Japan. They seem to be like politicians and not have a clue what is going on. I mean , come on, purchases tied to a NNID? What is difficult about that? Region Locking? Basically forcing you to have multiple machines to play different versions of games? etc.etc etc.

But I suppose getting all this sorted is just TOO much to ask. Also, we would only get the answer:

PLEASE UNDERSTAND!

Nintendo do yourself a favour and get this rumoured Fusion console out asap and give the WiiU owners a generous trade in discount for adopting early. The specs of this machine would wipe the floor with Sony and Microsoft for years.

This is my opinion anyway. So, how was your day peeps?

Yet again nothing :( . Although I'm buying the retail version of Yoshi for "the other half." Like someone said above: "I keep coming back and looking in hope..." I've started playing Mario 3D world again and I'm also still playing DKC:TF. Oh well, maybe one week... As the saying goes "... Please Understand..."

OldWeeDog commented on Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Poké...:

I am from the UK but, I am living in Finland. To add to all the the stuff said previously, why the hell does Nintendo not advertise?????? I have been living here for nearly 5 years now and in all that time ; you would be lucky if I have seen TWO tv advertisements and they were both for the 3DS. I think that they have partly themselves to blame here. They should be pushing these things out to the public. Also, don't get me started on the 3DS stuff e.g. street pass relay zones. None at all in Helsinki that I know of. They are shooting themselves in the foot as far as I am concerned. I know Finland has a small population but we get nowt over here; no Club Nintendo, nothing. OK, rant over. Well the Big N needs to advertise..... So how was your day peeps?????

The eShop is going to be offline for a few hours. Please understand. ... lmao :-D Hey, maybe we are going to be inundated with 64 and cube games? Well I can dream can't I? As long as it brings improvements, that's all that matters isn't it?

OldWeeDog commented on Nintendo Download: 6th March (Europe):

Yet again nothing worth getting. I'm still waiting on the N64 & GC vc titles that we were promised when the WiiU was launched. I have to say that this is getting a bit ridiculous. Come on big N, get with it. I'll even say please. ...

OldWeeDog commented on Video: These Are The Ten DS Games We Want To S...:

I still don't understand why they are putting DS games on the WiiU VC. They should be putting N64 and Gamecube games on the VC. The idiots are going backwards instead of forwards IMO. FFS they said on launch that we would get 64 and cube games on the VC. I mean e.g. Mario 64 is way better than Mario 64 DS and imagine playing Extreme G on the WiiU at full pelt... Just saying...

OldWeeDog commented on Nintendo Direct: Trailers Round-Up:

well I have a ps3 and ads xl too. Got tons of games for them and getting dk, mk8, x, nes remix and maybe bayonetta too. WAS hoping for maybe a teaser for a new wiiu game or 2 for this year. It is kind of annoying cause I want the wiiu to succeed like the wii did. Was also hoping for some n64 or cube games for the vc not gba games...
