@DrSlump You don't have to use the Mercedes if you don't want to, but you can't stop other people from doing it. That's free will 101. Expect to see a lot of Mercedes on the online races. I'm going with Wario in the 300SL roadster...

@cyrus_zuo Have you tried the GBA remake of SMB3? It just fixes the technical hindrances of the NES (more colours, no screen flickering and such). It's a pocket sized gem and the definitive version of the game. I also have the NES version on Wii U and like playing it as well, but the GBA, man...

@AVahne Wii U is at least the best selling home console in Japan right now. If they can hold to that position, we might get some more JRPGs. I think some small Japanese devs like Atlus, Natsume and such are waiting to see if it's just not a fluke or a sustainable trend on the Japanese charts. There is still hope, I guess.

@LDXD I remember when Sony made hardware that was weaker than Nintendo's still. I remember when Sony said the PlayStation 2 graphics would be "just like jacking up to the Matrix". Yeah, right on! Even to this day, I still have a hard time convincing some friends that the GameCube was more powerful than the PS2, because they all assumed otherwise (to be fair, these arguments tend to end when I show them F-Zero GX running! xD). Sony is just better at selling illusions than Nintendo.
I remember up to last year when both Sony and Microsoft were teasing 4K games and now they can't even reach 1080p most of the time. I just chuckle, lest not drown in the seas of irony and hypocrisy.

@LDXD True, both are very underwhelming machines. No more than an average 2012 gaming PC. Next-gen is just the old-gen with a new coat of paint. I'm glad Nintendo at least tried to bring something different to the table. The GamePad is not a revolution, but it's still more significant to gameplay than a share button or rumble triggers.

@Alucard83 Nintendo charges for the Wii U the same as Sony for the PS4? Where does that happen, on Mars? Are you kidding me?
The Wii U has always been cheaper than the PS4.
And if the Wii U was released on the 7th generation, you would be paying over twice the magic "600 dollars" price point. The Wii U has technology leaps and bounds above what was available on 2006. So, please cut the BS.

@WaLzgi In Europe, the tax is substantially higher. For this sort of goods, in Portugal it is 23%. In the UK its 20%, afaik.
European State and societies are very different from the US, we have more welfare. Public and universal hospitals, schools,universities, radio and television, postal service, public transportation, unemployment aid, etc. So we pay more tax to get more in return.

They look great, but I'm always a bit suspicious of third party controllers. The replacement of the D-pad in particular looks like it might fix my only complaint with the GameCube controller. I assume they plug to the Wii Remote and work as a Wii classic controller?
Are you guys going to make an hardware review of this? If there are no major flaws, at €19.99 I might get an Yoshi one.

I wouldn't oppose to a female Link. Link is almost always a different person in each game, he's supposed to be the Hero of Time reincarnate. Why can't the hero of time reincarnate as a female?
Link is a character but a very neutral character with few personality traits that make him unique. He's brave and kind and that's it. He's the archetype of the hero we want to be.

Samurai_Goroh commented on Giana Sisters Developer Under Fire Over Diesel...:

So, if they think they are entitled to the "Diesel" trademark, why don't they sue all the automakers and big oil companies in the world instead?
Just a bit of trivia and silliness,
According to Wikipedia, Rudolf Diesel patented it's diesel engine in Germany back in 1892. Little did he know he was infringing the trademark of an Italian clothing brand in the XXI century. Too bad, Rudy.

Given that I own NES Remix, I might pick one of those NES games at €2.50. Last weeks selection wasn't particularly exciting (bar Excite Bike which I already have), this week is a bit improved but still I don't know. I like puzzle games and Zelda, but have no great appreciation for the NES titles. Between Wario Woods, Punch-Out and Zelda II what should I pick?
