RJBurgess commented on Nintendo Download: 2nd April (Europe):

@Desy64 @Starwolf_UK
Thanks! I thought for a minute there I'd stumbled upon the reason for Nintendo offering such a poor selection of downloads for the week. Of course now we know it's because of all the N64 and DS releases now in the pipeline. Exciting times.



RJBurgess commented on Kirby and the Rainbow Curse Misses Out on Topp...:

Some of these numbers just don't make any sense to me. Like the PS4 sold almost 15,000 units but the biggest selling game for the thing only shifted 4,000... Are people in Japan just buying the console to sit in their living rooms and look pretty?



RJBurgess commented on Weirdness: Even Masahiro Sakurai Struggles to ...:

Hey, I'm also based in Poland. Can I ask where you are buying your Amiibo from because where I live (Wroclaw) it is literally impossible to find anything Nintendo related. I've searched every shop in the whole city and come up dry so many times by now I've given up and just buy off Amazon these days.



RJBurgess commented on Nintendo Finally Appoints a New Distributor in...:

Good news! Like @DarkAngel_17 said, I doubt it'll make much difference, especially considering the only shop I managed to find in Poland that sells Nintendo games just got finished returning all its stock due to "lack of consumer interest", but still, something is better than nothing. Besides, it not like the XBone and PS4 have been making waves over here or anything.



RJBurgess commented on Review: NES Remix (Wii U eShop):

Suddenly it makes sense why Nintendo have been releasing such weird titles like Urban Champion on the Virtual Console lately. All of these blackbox NES games are now included in this Remix, so if you enjoy playing them here, you can immediately go out and buy the full version! (Not sure if that's going to work in the case of Urban Champion, but whatever). It's a good business strategy.

Anyway, thanks for the swift review, guys. Keep up the good work!



RJBurgess commented on Feature: Why Nintendo Isn't Popular in Poland:

@Dave24 Hi Dave24, I'm the guy who wrote the article you're commenting on. You're absolutely right when you say that you CAN find Nintendo products in Poland if you really set your mind to it. By using specialist suppliers and online services such as (an excellent stockist I stumbled upon recently in Katowice), you can get your hands on pretty much anything. The point, however, is that no one wants to! Nintendo simply isn't a household name here in Poland and the point of this article was to look into the reasons why that might be.

I'm not sure where you live in Poland but in the city where I am (Wroclaw), there are 3 Media Markts, 2 Saturns, 5 Empiks, 3 EUROs and 1 Toys R Us that I know of (there might be more). Trust me: I have checked each and every one of these shops in my hunt for Nintendo games. Of the shops listed above, all of them stock A LOT of Microsoft, Sony and PC products but only one of them stocks anything Nintendo-related, and that's in a Media Markt which isn't even inside Wroclaw's city limits but instead in Bielany Wroclawskie. You tell me if this isn't a problem.

Anyway, thanks for reading and taking the time to comment. It's always nice to get people's views on this issue and (most importantly) to know that I'm not the only guy in Poland who owns a Wii U!
