Same here, don´t know why us scandinavians don´t get Club Nintendo.

When it comes to this particular game, I´m still importing from the UK. A pack of costumes isn´t worth the extra 10 euros the game costs in Sweden. Besides, I´ll enjoy this game just as fine with the regular costumes, they look really good.

I like Ittle Dew, and I´m kind of glad it became a game of it´s own instead of an official Zelda title. Ittle Dew has some wonderfully tounge-in-cheek humor that sets it apart from a regular Zelda. It´s a clone alright, but it has plenty personality. And Joel had some balls showing it to Nintendo



That_Guy_from_Faxana commented on Pachter: Nintendo Has Lost Its "Mojo":

There´s nothing controversial about his statement. With less than 4 million consoles sold since release things look dark. And with new consoles released this winter, it doesn´t look bright.

1985 is a strange comparation though, since Nintendo owned the market in the NES days.

Seriously. As much as I love Nintendos games, that doesn´t make the company free from faults. I really wish Nintendo would create products without unethical labour, and thet thay could be transparent about it.

The same goes for Sony and Microsoft, but this article is about Nintendo.

Well, developing one game at a time is a good thing. When Retro Studios were formed they tried developing two games at the same time as Metroid Prime, both had to be cancelled.

I´m not really longing for a new DK yet, there are many good plattformers for Nintendo systems already. Hope it´s good though. Maybe they´ll develop something more groundbreaking next.

"Nintendo's played it safe, commercially. Yet that makes business sense, which is something we should support. "

I wonder. This lineup looks like games for people who already own the WiiU. Nothing here seems set to wow new consumers. Nintendo can´t rely on everybody buying another Wii Fit, the general public has moved on.



That_Guy_from_Faxana commented on Exclusive: Zelda's Aonuma: We're Looking Into ...:

Added content is ok with me if it´s not something that feels "left out" of the original release. Many times DLC feels like a way to charge extra for the complete game. However, if Nintendo had a smaller team to create a few bonus dungeons for a Zelda it´s just good!



That_Guy_from_Faxana commented on Zelda Series Timeline Wasn't Planned From the ...:

@Kaine_Morrison Surprise Yeah, Zelda 1 & 2 were the only games connected in the beginning, everything became a mess when Nintendo started using "other" Links. Well, to be honest even Zelda II messes things up with the talk aobut "another princess Zelda".

The games are best played as separate experiences, there isn´t much of substance in the story anyway. Just very enjoyable games.

Side scrolling action game??? The other Super Robot Wars/ Taisen titles heve been strategy games. This one seems to be just as focused on over the top battle animations as the other one, pity license deals with anime companies will prevent it from reaching west.

He bought the game, and that´s what counts. The first months of sales are generally used to measure if the game´s sold good or not.

Besides, secondhand market has existed as long as trade itself, so it doesn´t damage the industry one bit. The gaming industry just needs to accept that once we´ve payed for their product, we own that copy and are free to give it away, sell it or throw it in the trash.



That_Guy_from_Faxana commented on Rumour: Blockbuster UK Lists 25 Wii U Games:

■Rabbids Party Land
■Raving Rabbids
■Rayman Legends
■Shield Pose
■Splinter Cell 6
■Sports Connection
■Your Shape 2013

For some reason this list reminds me of old pirate carts for the NES with "9999 games in 1" where a few titles are given non sense names. "Zombie" is bound to be a development title, but it´s just so generic
