Trikeboy commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

All I can see and read from Youtubers is this: WAAAHHHH!!!!! No more money!!!!!

Simple fact 1: They are making money off of someone else's Intellectual Property with out the IP owner getting a cut. In any other business that would be shut down completely.

Simple fact 2: Nintendo are fully well within their rights to put a 100% ban on people making money from Nintendo videos on Youtube.

They should be thankful that Nintendo have even allowed them to continue. I can honestly see this being the first domino to fall and other companies follow suit.



Trikeboy commented on The Hyrule Warriors Majora's Mask Pack DLC is ...:

Tecmo Koei really have done an amazing job with this game. The DLC has added tons of features on an already packed game. I just wish it was possible to run a campaign with Link, Zelda, Sheik, Impa and Ganondorf in their OoT costumes at the same time.



Trikeboy commented on Nintendo Launches Beta of 'Creators Program' f...:

People make money based on copywrited material. Nintendo are well within their rights to completely shut youtubers down. Doing this is them saying you can do it buy remember who owns the rights to these characters.

I hope they do two things with new a hand held device, DS and 3DS compatibility and a strong line up when it does launch. 3DS has defied the doom and gloom squad but we dont need a repeat of that. Also, it it comes in 2016, put it in the latter half. People will either just got a N3DS or planning to get one (which is why 3DS sales have dropped lately).



Trikeboy commented on Weirdness: According To McDonald's, Mario And ...:

OMG, why are people flipping out over a commercial that promotes friendship? So they used Mario and Bowser? They have a famous rivalry. The same can be said for all of the characters seen in the commercial, they weren't in there but I would have expected to see Optimus Prime and Megatron hug it out too. McDonalds spends a bit of cash to promote friendship and it just generates hate from mindless fools.



Trikeboy commented on Former Nintendo Indie Champion Discusses the C...:

Many people here don't seem to realise that indie developers are third party developers. Wii U has a fantastic support by third party developers, just not the big named third party developers. My Wii U library recently broke the 50 game mark and is made up of many eshop games that are so much fun to play. Cheap games that are fun to play. Most recently I picked up Gravity Badgers and played through 3 sections before I realised it.

I'm surprised by the gender split as I know many women that love Nintendo games. I wonder if it is due to more men taking those surveys?



Trikeboy commented on Reaction: Nintendo Direct Went Crazy With Reve...:

This Direct was clever. The 3DS puzzle games, great idea for the iphone crowd. Free to play and micro transactions like they are used to. It will help entice casual gamers to buy them, adding Mario and Pokemon helps expose them to the brands too. More amiibo and more support. It helps sell the amiibo if more games are compatible. It isn't like Skylanders when you only play with one game. Hunt the pixel Toad was hardly what kept Captain Toad from feeling like a complete game. With a new line, they can add characters that don't appear in Smash too.

Lots of first reveals is great because, especially for 3DS, it was looking a little light on releases this year. This announcement let everyone know that there is plenty of software coming out now and very soon. Nice teasers for future releases too. I get tired of the Directs that only talk about games we already know about. I'm really excited to see what Project Treasure will be and I'm also excited for the new Fire Emblem. I do wish there was a Wii U game but Fire Emblem is Fire Emblem.

Wii games on VC console (kinda). Amazing Wii games for less than £10 including Mari Galaxy 2 and Metroid Prime Trilogy. Samus on the Wii U, yay. Nintendo embracing Cross Buy and Cross Play with Mario vs Donkey Kong, superb. Rather than just getting a discount like other titles, this is giving you the other version for free. I am in love with that Majora's Mask N3DS and since I'm a UK gamer, it is pre installed.

There were a few bits of bad news too though. I'm disappointed the cradle and ac adapter are sold separately for N3DS consoles and a little disappointed the red one isn't available to the UK. However, the Majora's Mask version more than makes up for it.



Trikeboy commented on Weirdness: The Secret History of Princess Zelda:

Ok, I used to work for the Tesco Customer Service center in Dundee, actually on the team when the Tesco Direct website launched. We got so many people emailing about things being wrong on the website and I know that they are going to have no idea what to do about this. It will be logged away into a computer and ignored.



Trikeboy commented on Nintendo Direct Confirmed for 14th January, Wi...:

I knew it, with the New 3DS consoles coming out, we were bound to get a new direct. I hope we get a release date for the Mewtwo DLC in Smash Bros and a teaser trailer for Star Fox. I don't care if it has footage, anything Star Fox related.



Trikeboy commented on UK Retail Survey Highlights the Challenges Fac...:

Maybe if GAME were actually good at stocking Nintendo products and not hiding them in the back of their stores, they would get some better customer experiences. I've actually had a terrible time with them lately one which has led me to miss out on the first edition set for Bayonetta 2. Their online service has declined so much in the last year or two as well. This is the problem when they run almost unopposed in the high street market.



Trikeboy commented on Nintendo Download: 27th November (Europe):

Smash is a physical purchase. The game with Gamecube adapter was cheaper than the eshop price. Going by the aftermarket in US, that was a wise decision. Pokemon will be downloaded. Hyrule Warriors DLC is already paid for so that will be there no matter what. I wish Nintendo offered pre download for Pokemon like they offered for Smash Bros but can't have everything.



Trikeboy commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Pre-Purchase and P...:

I'm going physical to get the Gamecube adapter at a cheaper price. Though, this is good for those that don't want a bundle. That is a big file size so will take a while to download. Jumping straight into the game on launch day instead of waiting, waiting, waiting is a great idea and I hope the eshop applies it to all preorder games in the future.



Trikeboy commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:

@arnoldlayne83 @Jazzer94 Ding ding ding, I have Last of Us on my PS4, Uncharted on my PS Vita, Assassins Creed 1-3 on Steam and Assassins Creed 4 on my Wii U. Am I a fanboy? Nope, I'm an experienced gamer. I don't make generalized comments. I shouldn't have put in Bloodborne since it isn't out yet but it looks the same, just like how 1886 looks just like any other fps but at least they are trying something a little different than just shooting at marines.

Also, I have also logged plenty of hours into GTA V on PS3. I'm not calling the new versions of GTA V an fps, just that is what they are heavily marketing for the game. "Look, you can now play it in first person" GTA V, now with new hat.



Trikeboy commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:

@Punished_Boss_84 Do they release 2D Mario games one after the other or is their E3 show packed full of the same looking games? Lets take a look at GTA V. It is now coming to PC, Xbone and PS4. What is the selling point they have been ramming down people's throats? It is yet another fps. Destiny, CoD Ghosts, CoD Advanced Warfare, Titanfall, Evolve, 1886. Then, more 3rd person games. Last of Us, Uncharted, Bloodborne, Assassins Creed. They all play the same. I'm not saying they are bad games, in fact some are fantastic games but where is the variety? There isn't any. Sony and Microsoft have found a nice safe spot and have set up shop. They both try something new now and then but then fall back on the safe titles (ones that they can slap a new date on and people lap up) that look and play exactly the same as before. Again, some of these are amazing games. I'm currently playing Alien Isolation on my PS4 and that is awesome.



Trikeboy commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:

@Punished_Boss_84 "not a fan of variety."
You do realise you are talking about Nintendo right? What do the other consoles offer? Fps, fps, fps, fps, driving, driving, driving, driving, fighting. Nintendo may reuse their franchises again and again but at least the games can't be mistaken for each other. Put up a random image from any CoD game and people will be hard pushed to identify which one it came from. I have over 40 games on my Wii U and there isn't much feeling of repetition between the games.



Trikeboy commented on It'll be Possible to Catch All 719 Pokémon Us...:

@ZenTurtle They laugh when you ask for it? Ask for and talk to the manager, flash the cash for the game, then walk out without buying it. Maybe then he/she will hire competent staff. I'm soon to be 33 and I don't give a rats ass that Pokemon is my second favorite game series.

As for ORAS, Pokemon like Mew, Arceus, Jirachi et all are probably planned to be distributed in the game's life span so they will be available to 3DS users only.
