OldWeeDog commented on Nintendo Gets Tough With Miiverse Bans, and So...:

I was on Miiverse at the start (haven't been on for a long while) I stopped after getting flagged for supposedly breaking the rules. I was having a conflab with another user about the number of idiots on the smash forums (before it was released btw). I said something like "yeah m8. It's about time we had an adults forum. I can't be doing with the number of idiots on here sometimes lol" NO swearing or anything. It was utter ridiculous lmao... It's also easy for people to report your posts or you for no reason. Time there was an adults room!

Look at it this way, in a couple of years who's gonna give a flying f*@#k? Good for those that can get to it. I live in Finland and do I have the face of someone who gives a sh*t whether I get to participate or not? NOPE: It's up to Ninty how they do this and whether the make a clusterf*@ck of it or not. Just be happy for those that get the chance. C'est la vie!

Riihimäki- Finland here. I'm lucky if I get 1 hit a fortnight lol. I'm well into the fishing game and spent about 200 play coins on it aswell as about 60 on the zombie one today lol. Just can't stop playing it. I like them both (well the fishing one more. Prob. because of OoT.) I just haven't gotten into the zombie one yet, although the disco ball weapon was hilarious.

As for Relay points, they seem to be non existant here- so I rely on play coins. If anybody knows of relay points here in Finland I'd appreciate a heads up. Cheers!



OldWeeDog commented on Talking Point: Club Nintendo's Closure Is An E...:

The shut down of Club Nintendo means nothing to me as we've never had it here in Finland anyway. So, no loss here. I just hope that the new system is available to everyone in all territories equally. Get it sorted out Big N.



OldWeeDog commented on The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D Limited-...:

Good for NOA, as for release date... I've seen a couple of sites with place holders for early February (around 15th if I remember correctly). I hope it is then. Now a special edition 3ds would be cool too, a man can hope though ;D

Well this sucks, I've no chance of this in Finland. It sucks being a Nintendo fan as we get absolutely F*@!k all here. No Club Nintendo; nothing. Happy for those of you that do though. Have fun with it when you get it.



OldWeeDog commented on Snazzy Golf Balls Added to Club Nintendo in PA...:

I live in Europe, in Finland and this means nothing to me. Why? Because we don't even have Club Nintendo. I would have 1000's of points with all the games and consoles I could register. Most, if not all, of the games I buy have the Club Nintendo points cards and they go straight in the bin cause they are pointless over here and don't get me started on Nintendo's pressence over here either. That's a topic for the other article lol...

Oh well, maybe one day they will get their act together. I ain't holding my breath though o_o ...



OldWeeDog commented on Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire Enjoy Biggest UK P...:

It's not Nintendo hate in Europe, it's lack of bloody advertising that's the problem. I've been here in Finland for a few years now and I think I have seen an advert for a Nintendo console or game on the TV once. They don't seem to want to push this console at all.



OldWeeDog commented on 3DS System Update 9.0.0-20 Is Now Live with Ho...:

Downloaded the Zelda one, although it's poor in comparison to the level of stability my 3ds has reached now. I think it can handle even more stability. I think it may even be more stable than N. Korea now and that's saying something lol



OldWeeDog commented on Review: Teslagrad (Wii U eShop):

Think I'm gonna get this one too, although, my wallet is gonna run away over the next few months; what with all the games coming that I want to buy lmao



OldWeeDog commented on Nintendo Launches a Free 3DS Game Promotion in...:

Register where? Cause when I moved over here to Finland 4 years ago I wanted my UK club nintendo transfered and they told me that I couldn't and I had to close it. I had a mountain of stars built up too. So where the hell do I register my stuff then? Any help would be appreciated peeps. Thanks..



OldWeeDog commented on Scandinavian Gamers Will be Included in the Hy...:

I also want club nintendo here in Finland. With all the games and consoles I have, I would get platinum account status straight away lol. Anyway, enough complaining cough I suppose this- jumping through the hoops- is better than nowt... Come on Ninty get it together pleaseee..



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...:

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 :





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:


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?



OldWeeDog commented on Nintendo Download: 13th March (Europe):

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?????



OldWeeDog commented on Extended Nintendo Network Maintenance on Wii U...:

The eShop is going to be offline for a few hours. Please understand. ... lmao 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...
