@Artwark "Copyright crap"

So companies should just let anyone use their IP to do whatever they want with without concerning themselves with the risk of their brand being cheapened and abused?Example, Blockdrop x Mickey Mouse ,nah nothing for Disney to be concerned about there.

@KodyDawg You should try a couple of the older tables,Sorcerers Lair and Epic Quest are fantastic.Just bought them on Wii U last week but was already familiar with them as I had them on Android and those 2 along with Empire Strikes Back are the best in my opinion.Fairly easy to get into but with loads to do and if you play them right you can stay on the table for upwards of an hour.Something about the Marvel tables I've tried just don't do it for me,not sure what it is.

When Dylan went electric a large amount of his traditional folk followers went ballistic and said he had sold himself out,look how that turned out.I am actually excited to see how this pans out as if they get this right it could really make Nintendo a powerhouse again.

I can still remember buying this in Dixons day one and firing it on for the first time.I was so hyped for its release after staring at little images of it in SEGA mags and reading previews for it over and over again for what felt like years but in the end it never really lived up to that hype for me.I did enjoy it but not as much as it seems everyone else did.Too many boss fights for my liking.If I was to make a top 15 Megadrive games this probably wouldn't feature.

""As proof that Nintendo maintains strong enthusiasm for the dedicated game system business", Iwata adds, "let me confirm that Nintendo is currently developing a dedicated game platform with a brand new concept under the development codename 'NX'."Iwata says Nintendo will share more information about the new hardware "next year"

I was going to go out but screw that I'm staying right here.

My jaw literally dropped.This really is monumental news,at least in the world of Nintendo anyway.Now for a barrage of overly dramatic comments about how this will be the end of Nintendo when really it's anything but.This if done right can make them a power house again.more relevance,more sales,and more money to make better games and consoles.

@Kingrat Good review man,cheers for that.I wasn't a fan of the art style at all and had no plans to pick this up but after reading your review I think I would enjoy this."Borrows heavily from the platforming classics of yesteryear" like "Wonderboy in Monsterland" is what got me ;) Hopefully it's been polished up a little for it's Wii U release.

Shame about the price of Punch Out,I'm not paying that for it.I've not even started the Metroid Trilogy yet and maybe never will with the backlog I already have and all that's coming this year.I've watched videos of the MSF games and they look boring to me so even at those prices I think I'll give them a miss.Shantae is tempting but I think I'll give it a miss too.If I had a 3DS I would definitely be having a Sega blowout.8 remastered classics in 3D for £19.97 is an incredible deal if ever there was one.

@Finntendo Regarding your limited options,I would highly recommend CDKEYS to buy your games digitally,they sell Eshop cards too for cheaper than their value. I've bought SM3DW and DKTF from them this week both for prices cheaper than they're selling physical on Amazon.It's an American site but the codes are for EU.I was dubious at first but I checked them out and they have tons of reviews online and you need to use Paypal for payment anyway so there is some kind of cover there.I only came across them by chance as I tried to buy from Game but they don't have Thailand in the drop down box for shipping address (for a download code) so I am not even able to buy from them.So my only options before was to pay full price on the Eshop or order from Amazon UK and then wait on them getting shipped over.I'll be getting everything from this CDKeys from now on though.

@rjejr I've deleted my reply to you to save face,it was just me commenting pre morning coffee without putting much thought into it.In case you didn't notice I joined in on the rant about the lack of promotion for Mario V DK on the Eshop.Just realised it doesn't come out in EU for 2 more weeks so that would explain it.

That Mario Kart TV website looks great.This should really be in the game as 8 seems like a step back from MK Wii on that side,especially the time trials.I still cant get my head around only being able to race ghosts with the exact same time as my record or about 20 odd seconds ahead.Why can't I race ghosts one or 2 seconds faster than me? Being able to see my near competition and challenge staff made time trials a lot of fun on the Wii whereas this just seems kind of pointless and included as an after thought.I find this more disappointing that the battle mode if I'm being honest.

I'm gonna throw a wild prediction in and say that one of the tracks will be Starfox based and that Fox is one of the characters,makes sense really with it coming out not long after.That's probably been said before but there you go!

@RCMADIAX I thought the US versions regular price was $1.99? Says that on the game overview anyway.Not quite sure what you mean about being restricted when you can have a sale by EU law? I'm no position to question you on it either but how do other indie titles release at promotional prices or have sales soon after release?I can't think of any off the top of my head right now but there has definitely been some cases where this has happened.Why were they not restricted by EU law?

Not sure why mostly everyone thinks it's a bad week? There has been far far worse! Oli Oli is supposed to be great and it's cross buy,and although I wont be getting them,there is 2 NES titles never released in Europe which in the past would have been seen as quite a big thing.Then there is that Proun which is supposed to be alright too.So not that bad at all really!

@Beau_Skunk It really can't be that hard for them to do considering you can already play all of them perfectly on a modded Wii.I am sure there is more to it than that.I've read before it's to do with licensing issues with the company that manufactured them or something like that.

I have managed to amass over 5000 stars since getting my Wii U 3 months ago which is not bad going at all.What can I get for it in these final days before I lose forever? A flaming Mario hat and some ringtones and wallpapers that I could download from Google images.What a joke! I cant understand the NA users complaining with all the games that's been added.Have you seen the European shop and its prices?

Great article,I had no idea this existed.

"The Japanese bubble had only just popped and Japanese companies were still flush with cash and no crazy ideas were too crazy. Look at the Sharp X68000 computer system, the Nissan Skyline R32, the Sony Minidisc"

I had a Minidisc player and Hifi and I absolutely loved them.,the sound quality was fantastic.At the time I first got my player I told everyone this was the future,even though I was the only person I ever knew who used them.Still didn't stop me from spending ₤450 on a hi fi that served me well for many years,it seemed to get better with age too.Good to know I was an owner of such niche items,just like the Dreamcast was and the Wii U will be.

OorWullie commented on Former Sega of America CEO Talks Out on the Co...:

Some of these comments above frustrate me,it's always the same.Sure they need to be careful how they approach it but I just don't get why so many think them having a presence on Android/IOS will be the death of them,if anything the opposite is true! It's not as if we're going to be seeing Android exclusive 3D Mario's!

The Mii Maker app that Iwata was talking about (if that's all it ends up being) is laughable really.However a Mii Maker included as part of an all in one Nintendo App,like a magazine with videos,fun facts,weekly quizzes,Mii competitions,interviews with devs,Miiverse integration with notifications sent to your phone and so on,keeping it fresh and updated and a place you want to visit regularly for kids and adults alike then surely it can only be a benefit to them going forward! I think to really keep it interesting though they will need to have some sort of games on there also.Something similar to Android games like Brainwars or Quizup but with Nintendo trivia would be fantastic.I fail to see why that would be damaging to their handheld,again it could have the opposite effect! What about some sort of free to play Amiibo minigame without micro transactions but also having a much more fully fledged Amiibo game on the 3DS or Wii U at the same time and if you own either one you can level up ,share stats or get other perks for example?A lot of the newer generation phones have NFC also so that could even be used with the right approach as an alternative form of micro transactions.It wouldn't be my thing but it could certainly be a hit with the kids if doe right and considering the size of the mobile market a majority of those will have never played a Nintendo console in their lives.

The fact is,if you seatch for Nintendo on Google Play all you get is Nintendo emulators with instructions how to use and links directing you to ROM sites.It can be done in literally seconds,so again I fail to see why them doing something officially will be the end of them!

@Grumblevolcano I'm playing through Arkham City as we speak,I got it from Amazon a couple of weeks ago for a tenner but just started it last night.I'm enjoying it so far but I must say,after only really playing 1st party and some indie platformers since I got my Wii U,I can really notice the drop in framerate.I've never really concerned myself with things like that before but here it's definitely noticeable and quite jarring to be honest.I've read a few comments before saying that the download version runs smoother so it's probably worth paying the little extra if it does.

All these online modes sound promising but they wont be much use if it flops at retail and going by how badly previous mature titles have sold,it likely will unfortunately.Fingers crossed there is a meaty single player campaign.

@Nomad If the Dreamcast had been a success and Sega had gone on to stay in the console race then I would definitely have remained with them but their problems started way before that.I had everything they released but the way they shafted fans with the Mega CD and 32X then released the Saturn soon after,the damage was done and Sony took full advantage of that.They financially crippled their business and lost a large amount of their loyal fans in such a short space of time.They only have themselves to blame really.

OorWullie commented on January NPD Results Bring Improvement for Wii ...:

@Neram It's different with sports games though,they only need to bring updated squads and slight refinements and that's enough,at least for the majority that buy them.The gameplay has been practically perfected over the years so there is not really much more they can do with it except slightly tweak it every year to make it more realistic.No one wants to play with out of date squads either,especially with their favourite club.Granted,these updates and improvements could probably be added as DLC but as long as the tens of millions of fans keep buying it yearly that ain't gonna change.

@mjc0961 Not sure where you get Legends having sloppy controls from?I wasn't a fan of Origins as I felt the controls were a bit too floaty for my liking but Legends fixed that.Never though,with either title have the characters not done exactly what i wanted them to do.Fair enough you don't like the game but to say the controls don't do what you want them to means you're either doing something wrong or just making it up.

OorWullie commented on Satoru Iwata Shares Confidence in Hitting Targ...:

I still find it astonishing that there is no Nintendo app whatsoever in 2015.Especially considering their home market,as Iwata said,is dominated by smartphones.If you search for Nintendo on the Play Store all you get is a list of emulators,that should be hugely embarrassing for them.When you think back to the Wii with it's Nintendo Channel,Mii Contest Channel,Everybody Votes Channel etc,as basic as they were,you would have thought they would have evolved eventually into a single app for Android and IOS but if anything they've gone backwards on that side.Other than Miiverse the Wii U has nothing similar really and the fact that we have to access Miiverse through a browser (only recently at that) kind of says it all about how far behind they are with this.How Iwata can stand up there with a straight face and convince these likely concerned investors that a Mii App is Nintendo making a progressive step into the smartphone market is beyond me.

I wish they would show the Wii U some love.I'm not really bothered about 16 bit as I can play them whenever but I long to play the best of Saturn ,Dreamcast and Arcade again,it's been too long.Call them HD Classics or Arcade Classics and give them the M2 treatment.Pointer controls for Virtua Cop,list of moves and combos on the Gamepad for Virtua Fighter and Fighting Vipers or a rear view mirror and race positions for Daytona and Virtua Racing.Simple additions but ones that could make these classics even better.Come on Sega,get yer finger out!

With the talent that's there Nintendo would be wise to snap them up.Even if it's just for a 2 or 3 game exclusive deal and see where it goes from there.A spiritual sequel to Banjo exclusive on Wii U?Diddy Kong Racing 2 and Blast Corps 2? Yes please!
