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?
