It's a bit strange reading this, I thought this was talking about Wave 4 initially. I already picked up the full set of Wave 3 from my local department store a month ago. For some reason Nintendo released Wave 3 early in Australia. One of our rare lucky breaks I guess.

My system is stable
Prizm commented on Review: Castlevania: Dracula X (Wii U eShop / ...:
Yes the controls were clunky, but so was castlevania IV. Jumping across platforms in IV was just as much of a pain in the ass. I agree, the first level music in X is great. Probably my favourite track from the whole series.

That Pikmin bag is about the only decent looking thing we have on the Australian Nintendo Club. I think it's been there for ages.

ffs, another decent looking game for 3DS that's not on Wii U.
Prizm commented on Nintendo Of America Celebrates Bayonetta 2 Wit...:
I'm in Australia. A $40 eShop card would bring a game down to about the price I could buy it for in a department store. Even if I could enter the competition, I doubt I would bother!
Prizm commented on Super Mario Bros. Movie UK Blu-Ray Release to ...:
I don't think I've seen this since like 1994. As a kid, I saw it was so obviously non-canon that I hated the movie for tarnishing the Mario name. The Wizard was like an academy award winner compared to Mario Bros.

@Kirk What an overreaction. And it sounds like you're whinging about something that I never suggested. I said nothing about votes causing comments to change position. That's a different feature.
If I could +1 people's comments on this site, I'd visit it more often!
Prizm commented on Nintendo Offers Condolences to Robin Williams'...:
@shaneoh oh god, that's like saying why honor your own deceased family member when so many other people died on the same day. The Williams' have a unique connection with Nintendo.
It's probably the wisest thing for Nintendo not to announce anything now, it's too soon.

Is it just me, or has Skylanders done its dash? Our stores are full of figures and they're just not selling. Every week there's a "buy 1 get 1 free" deal and they still can't move them.We had a 'limited edition' Wii U console pack promo with Skylanders included, and eBay is full of people trying to sell off the Skylanders rubbish that the console came with.It seems the real battle will be Infinity 2 vs Amiibo.

@vitalemrecords I've always said S N E S, not "snez" or "nez". As you say, it sounds dumb when you actually pronounce it as a word.

@Spooky said "the seal of quality is the same for all NTSC regions. PAL have the round shape instead"I have never seen a seal like that iQue one. The NTSC seal states "Official NINTENDO Seal of Quality", and the PAL ones have always stated "Original NINTENDO Seal of Quality".
It's funny how almost any chinese packaging screams COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT. Just look at that Nintendo Seal on the boxart they found for the article.

@Funbunz "other than the SMB 3 footage, the Wizard was awful"
I both loved and hated that movie. I loved seeing a movie about Nintendo games (especially with the hype behind SMB3 at the time). But that stupid kid whining about "california" for the entire movie made me want to take his yellow lunchbox and shove it up his ass. That kid was supposed to be our hero, the kind of game player we all want to be ("you got 50,000 on Double Dragon??" lol). But they made him out to be this total PITA. And how the hell did he find the warp whistle on his first try anyway haha
@WiiLovePeace ahaha I wonder if they interviewed that dude from The Wizard.
Prizm commented on Feature: Ten Must Play Titles on the Game Boy:
I really have to go back and play Super Mario Land 2. I don't think I've played it since I bought it in 1992. It was a lot of fun, and huge — compared to the sub-par Mario Land 1.I spent many enjoyable hours on Metroid II, but it's not really a 'first game you should play'. It's very long and you spend hours wandering around. The game didn't have a map, so you had to try and remember everything.
Prizm commented on Wii U System Update 5.1.1 is Now Available:
@Fidu21 "Nintendo's updating the stability so much, i'm sure by the time they reach 6.0 they will have reached Singularity"@Ootfan98 "Has anyone played Stability yet? Is it worth downloading?"
lolprease understand stabirityOh well, I'd rather Nintendo gives us some updates rather than none.

Games games games. Nintendo alienates third parties, then fails to hire enough internal developers to fill that hole.

What bullpoopoodoodoocacapoopledoople. Hey I've got an idea, let's pick out a random everyday word in the english language, then say it's our brand name, and then sue anyone that tries to include that word in their product.
Please watch the profanity — TBD

wtf, they still make Wii games?

The question is whether the D-pad is any good.
Prizm commented on Nintendo of Europe Launching Wii U Virtual Con...:
@PvtOttobot yeah I'm in the same boat. I want both remixes, but the current 30% discount on Remix 2 isn't quite the bargain I'm waiting for.
Prizm commented on Yacht Club Games Gives a Shovel Knight Localis...:
In Australia here, and already bought and beat the Steam version. Great game.Looking at those development progress pics — man what a pain in the ass for the creators. I have a hunch that getting this game through Japan's system will be a one in a million shot (disdain for western developers, closed-country mentality that NOJ seems to still cling to).

More bargain bin garbage that only grandmothers rummage through for johnny's birthday.
Prizm commented on Review: My Jurassic Farm (Wii U eShop):
This is for Wii U? It looks like a $2 app. What on earth happened to Nintendo's stringent quality control?

@Sleepingmudkip "I feel like sony wants to buy nintendo lol"
Interesting concept. Someone will probably get bought sooner or later. Though it seems Nintendo is the only one with cash.
Prizm commented on Review: Adventure Island (Wii U eShop / NES):
Anyone else play Super Adventure Island II for SNES? That was really fun and more of an adventure than a strict platformer. Had some great music as well. I also enjoyed the first Gameboy Adventure Island.
Prizm commented on Shovel Knight:
"This is the kind of shovelware we can dig"
That line cracks me up.

Wish the rest of us could get a white 32GB. I ended up with a Premium at a very good price, but the only thing I regret is the colour. Black looks dated. It belongs in 2003.

Prizm commented on Shovel Knight Soundtracks Released on Bandcamp:
You know, I'm just not feeling the soundtrack. I'm sure the arranged versions sound great like the trailer, but the chiptunes are just not memorable. Yes they definitely sound authentic like they were pulled straight out of the NES, but the majority that I've heard so far in the game don't have that catchy vibe.Actually, I wonder if the arranged soundtrack was the original? If they took regular tracks and tried to cram them into chiptunes, then no wonder it sounds a bit off.
Prizm commented on Review: Mega Man II (3DS eShop / Game Boy):
I bought Megaman II GB when it came out and I remember how disappointed I was. Not only did the first Megaman use the same music as MM1 for NES, but they actually improved the tunes. So I was on the edge of my seat waiting for MMII and to hear those classic MM2 NES tracks. I was DEVASTATED when I started the first level.And as the reviewer said, most of the other aspects of the game were just plain weird.To be fair, there are actually a couple memorable tunes if you can listen past the incessant high pitch and noisy racket. They just need a better arrangement.The Title/Wily music is actually a great track. There's an awesome remix of it by Yuu (aka Phoenix Project): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_A55JbX_e4
