Pj1 commented on Nintendo is Discontinuing the Basic 8GB Wii U ...:

I think Nintendo should have done a 32GB white and black models from the start, the white one has become pretty differcult to get hold of in the UK. I wanted to get another one but I will probably hold out and see if a limited edition version turns up to celebrate Mario's 30th Birthday.



Pj1 commented on More Club Nintendo Goodies Coming To The Europ...:

I'm pretty gutted by this, I was pretty happy to have enough points for a SNES controller and two pouches once. They are amazing gifts, shame you can't buy them. Some day you might be able to.



Pj1 commented on Silver Edition Mario amiibo Hits North America...:

North America, all though limited got gold Mario's
North America, availabilty will be probably be better than the gold ones will get silver Mario's.
UK / Europe get sweet nothing.....

Hopefully we will get some thing nice when Mario hits 30.

Nintendo re-stock Amiibo's in the UK please...



Pj1 commented on Poll: Is It Time For a Fresh Alternative to th...:

It would be nice if Nintendo read this article, the views from N.L users / readers are very interesting, we need more titles on the VC and to have cheaper prices. All though I do like the fact that if you own a game on the Wii VC and you've transfered to it to Wii-U you can get for about £1.50 to £2.00. I think the Wii VC was a unique selling point when the Wii was released.



Pj1 commented on Nintendo Download: 30th April (North America):

Had some fun playing Amiibo tap earlier, I know it's a lucky tip style game but does anyone know what Amiibo's unlock the games?

Played Kirby, Super Mario World, Super Metroid and Zelda a link to the past. I recieved a couple Amiibo's for my Birthday so I will see later what games they unlock!



Pj1 commented on Review: Elliot Quest (Wii U eShop):

I played this recently in Nintendo World I was pretty impressed with this game but I found it a bit tricky, I will probably download this. I wish it was a bit cheaper though.



Pj1 commented on Clear Display Cases Show Off amiibo in Style:

I really like them!!

Can I please ask Nintendo Life readers from America, Please?
Are the Super Mario amiibo's available in the USA? My wife and I are going to New York soon and I would love to bring a few back with us, I'm just wondering guys...



Pj1 commented on Analyst Thinks Nintendo Is Already Winding Dow...:

I don't blame Nintendo for developing a new console but shouldn't they figure out what went wrong with Wii-U, people blame (not in entirely) the name but it worked OK for Nintendo when they put the word Super in front of NES. I think Nintendo need more 1st party titles and to be able to make them work, I mean Wii-Sports was a game that showed the world the Wii and had a big user base. I was talking to a friend about the Wii-U saying how I like playing games on the gamepad and he said it's the HD version of the Wii and that only. Like many said people E3 will re-light Nintendo's fire they're not sitting about not doing anything- Well they might be! but I don't think so. Mario Maker will help the big N shift a few more Wii-U's! and 'better late, than never. Zelda will to.



Pj1 commented on Review: Mario Kart DS (Wii U eShop / DS):

I really liked the DS, I wouldn't have bought a DS if it wasn't for the great titles that were released it for it, I havn't played M.K on the Wii-U yet been too busy getting used to the controls on Mario 64. I am looking forward to playing this though on the TV, nice that it got released on that service but it's a shame it might not look too good on TV. I won't download every DS game I own but I will download New Super Mario bros if they sort out TV quality first....



Pj1 commented on Nintendo DS And Nintendo 64 Games Finally Comi...:

Fanstastic releases, I agree with above post @joey302. Nintendo are really slow at releasing VC titles, the Wii-U has been out over two years and we only just get N64 now. Well.... I downloaded SM64 for £1:79, I then bought Mario Kart the DS version and Donkey Kong 64 when I saw this on a N64 for the first time I couldn't believe the graphics, I missed out on the N64 and bought one on an auction site. I never got the chance to DK64 but I will make it my challenge to play and complete this, when? I dunno.



Pj1 commented on Nintendo Direct Confirmed for 1st April, With ...:

I would like some news on Mario Maker, I'm looking forward to seeing that. I'd like to hear Nintendo say more G.C adapter's will be available in the UK and if those Paper Mario rumours are true! fanstatic if so. Remember folks Mario is 30 years old this year so I am hoping for something special from them but I will see the presentation or at least I will try to.



Pj1 commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Mega CD:

I remember this coming out and it was pretty expensive, I had a Mega Drive and I faniced buying a Mega CD but I would have been saving up for it for years :-(
Also at the time (all though I didn't think about it like I do nowadays) I could have saved up maybe £200:00 and bought a SNES with an in-pack game and another great title as I felt and still do the Mega CD wasn't a stand alone console and the Multi-Mega I remember seeing for about lots of money. I wish I had kept my M.D but I traded it in for a SNES, I don't regret getting the SNES but I do regret getting rid of the M.D as it was a great console. I would also like to pick up a Mega CD up one day but they sell for crazy prices, so I wont think I will bother. Also Nntendo Life the one you guys have in the picture looks like it's in great condition, oh how I wish Sega offically re-released the Mega Drive again some day.....



Pj1 commented on Amazon UK and Tesco Now Flogging Wii U Premium...:

I picked up a 2DS today and I am hoping that Tesco's will deliver it to my local store tomorrow! as for the 3DS I actually sent Nintendo Life a message about this last week but last week they were £69.00 but now they have gone down a futher £10 which is great. As for the Wii U I am pretty gutted that I missed out when they were selling the basic packs for £100 and in store the premium packs for £84.00, only to see them (probably) re-appearing on ebay for crazy prices.....As for picking up a second Wii-U I will wait for them to be even cheaper! and could it happen.



Pj1 commented on Poll: Are You An Early Adopter With The New Ni...:

Sadly I didn't I would like the small one with the SNES inspired coloured buttons but I think that might be the only reason to buy one and the collectable face plates but Nintendo, Game and Amazon are charging £15.00!!! No I don't fancy it.



Pj1 commented on Tesco Direct Starts Flogging Wii U 8GB Systems...:

In some ways I'm pleased I didn't see this and cross that I did, it would have been nice to have picked one up but I have the 32GB version but like some one else all ready posted it would have been nice to have one hooked up in another room! Oh well....



Pj1 commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

All the decent Wii games that are out I own the pyhsical copies of them. I have two Wii consoles and two Wii-Mini's so I think I'll pass on these coming to Wii-U shop. Unless they release Super Mario All Stars I'll be on that big time, I would like to see N64 and Gamecube titles hitting the Wii-U I skipped the N64 but I do like playing some of the games that were out on the console. I own the physical copies of G.C games but I'd still support that platform over the Wii games. Sorry Nintendo.



Pj1 commented on Does Super Mario Galaxy 2 On Wii U Offer Anyth...:

I'm confused onto why they didn't release the first game first? it makes no sense to me, that's like playing Super Mario World before Mario 3. I have the physical copies so I have no need for this, I even bought the 'select' versions that are sealed!!



Pj1 commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

Nintendo releasing Wii games on the Wii-U I find pretty confusing actually but at least Nintendo said that they are releasing them and did it as we are still waiting for N64 and Gamecube games to appear on the Wii-U. Why was Mario Galaxy 2 released before 1? Surley you gotta play the first one first? it looks like a good move by Nintendo to do this.



Pj1 commented on European Version Of Super Retro Trio Boasts Im...:

I bought one of these once before, maybe one of the oringnal ones. I thought it was a load of rubbish but at the time I had Mario RPG and that worked well, I was annoyed I had to pay shipping tax. I hope and think they've got a lot better!



Pj1 commented on Poll: Have You Been Able to Buy the Super Smas...:

I wanted to get a few amiibo'sbut I thought once I'd start buying them I wouldn't stop and to collect all 16 would have costed me £160.00. I was undecided on whether to buy the gamecube adapter I waited too long, now I would like to buy one and it's too late. I did buy a G.C limited edition controller that I will keep sealed. I just wish I pre-ordered the adapter when they first became a pre-order. Oh well, maybe Nintendo will produce more when they can.



Pj1 commented on EA Cancelled Wii U SimCity Title Before The Fo...:

Sim City on the snes was fun! however when Nintendo announced Wii-U who did they announce as partners EA. It would be nice to have another a sim city game that was good fun. Oh Well never mind.



Pj1 commented on Inflated Prices and Limited Stock Cause Frustr...:

I ordered a GC controller thinking that they would be sold out, what with Christmas in a few weeks I wasn't sute what to order when it came to the adaptor shall I order it with the game or without. So I wanted to head to my local game on my way to work to buy one but I never made it, it took me an hour to get work as there had been an accident! When I finally got on the game site it said that they adapters were sold out and even on Nintendo's store site it said the same. I don't understand how Ninendo can be sold out of their own product. Crazy!!
No way I will buy on on ebay but I am hoping more will be in stock soon!!



Pj1 commented on Online Retailers Offer Huge Discounts on Super...:

Its a good deal! if you're not bothered about downloading games then this a good option, in fact for the price including Wii-U Brawl. If you took brawl out of the pack the Wii U would be about £140 which is really good. Also it plays Wii games so that's also pretty good. I bought a Wii-U the day it came it, I regret buying one now as there are some really good deals out there!
