Tom41 commented on Nintendo Download: 6th November (Europe):

Even though I have Toki Tori already for both Wiiware and Wii U, I think I'll still get the 3DS version particularly as it's cheap! Not too sure about the two new Wii U downloads though...



Tom41 commented on Next Splatoon Patch Drops October 20th, Rapid ...:

I'm surprised that the update won't be released until AFTER the European Splatfest! You'd think people would want the adjustments before a big event like this - as it is, this'll be the last chance to use all those sneaky shortcuts and OP weapons!



Tom41 commented on Splatoon 'Octoling' Modder Could Cause Save Da...:

So if your save happens to get soft-locked by an Octoling hacker and you've recently made a backup to USB (I do almost daily), can you copy the USB backup back to your console and get all your progress back? Or would that result in having to start the game over from the beginning?



Tom41 commented on GAME Promises Quick Refunds After Charging Cus...:

This makes me glad that I cancelled my GAME pre-order and went with the official Nintendo store! First Splatoon, now this... I'm still going to check my bank account to make sure nothing's been charged though.



Tom41 commented on Nintendo Download: 25th June (Europe):

Would get Yoshi's Wooly World but I already have the physical copy on pre-order (along with the Amiibos). So it'll probably be Shiftlings, if the review is favourable.



Tom41 commented on Nintendo UK Planning Massive Marketing Push Fo...:

I went to see Tomorrowland yesterday, and there was a Splatoon commercial before the movie. Thankfully they didn't have any of those stupid songs! I've also seen a brief TV spot promoting the game, not to mention banner ads on many sites I visit that link to the official Nintendo UK store.



Tom41 commented on Poll: Did The Splatoon Global Testfire Hit Its...:

It was a fun experience and I've already pre-ordered the full game. I had a couple of occasions where it said 'session full' or 'communication error' when looking for players, but never in mid-game. No noticeable lag, but there were several times I got a double-KO (splatted each other at the same moment). My last match, however, was a bit unfair. One of my team-mates disconnected before the match started, and another team-mate didn't move at all, so it was 4 against 2!



Tom41 commented on Planning On Downloading Xenoblade Chronicles 3...:

I got a 16GB MicroSD card that I was using in an adapter on my old 3DS. So I just had to take the card out of the adapter and put it in the New 3DS once the transfer finished. Not planning on getting this game, but if I did, I'd buy it on a game card - prefer to do that with retail releases.



Tom41 commented on Video: What If Super Mario World Was A 3D Clas...:

Not perfect - I don't like how Mario appears to be in front of the thing he's standing on. It would need a little tweaking before I'd play an entire game like this. SMW might not even work as a 3D classic, as there is generally one background layer and one foreground layer.



Tom41 commented on Majora’s Mask 3D Patch Irons Out Honey & Dar...:

Oddly, the patch downloaded ok for me on my New 3DS, but when I play the cartridge on my original 3DS I don't even get a prompt for it. Don't think it's going to be compulsory like SSB and Mario Kart, since Majora has no online functionality.



Tom41 commented on Video: More Bizzare Majora's Mask 3D Glitches ...:

Twice I've had a glitch in the Snowhead dungeon where a White Wolfos starts running in circles and never attacks you. It also becomes invincible - can't be defeated by any means! I also entered the bottom room with the lava pits as Deku Link once. Before I have any control of Link, a fire skull comes out of the lava and kills him - so I'm trapped in a respawning loop...



Tom41 commented on Talking Point: Is There A Future For The Wii U...:

I'm in two minds about this. The Gamepad is good in its own way and can be used for innovative purposes (as Nintendo Land and Rayman Legends demonstrate), but I do believe there should be an option for people to use a different controller if they choose. I often play until my Gamepad battery runs out, and want to continue with a Wii Remote or Classic Controller Pro - only to find most games require the Gamepad to be present to actually start.



Tom41 commented on EU VC Releases - 30th November - Baseball Stars 2:

Well, I don't like sports games of any kind so I'll give Baseball Stars 2 a miss. The Dynastic Hero is interesting though...

On the plus side, it has a nice animated intro and good music, plus you can play it in 60hz mode on a PAL Wii. However, since the game play is EXACTLY the same as Wonder Boy, it's really not worth getting if you've already got that. If not, then Dynastic Hero is a must-have!



Tom41 commented on EU VC Releases - 14th September - Double Japan...:

I downloaded SMB2 Lost Levels straight away; don't want to miss the chance to have the original - even though I already have Mario All-Stars for SNES!

I hope they don't make the game 'expire' at the end of September and auto-delete from your Wii!



Tom41 commented on F-Zero X:

Great game; downloaded it as soon as it came out at midnight and have been playing it all day! I wonder if Nintendo will ever update it to make use of the Gamecube pad rumble feature, or release the 64DD extras as downloadable updates?
