Now I'm quite intrigued in Dimensions. I'm still not buying it full price, not by a long shot. However, the idea of Homer Simpson and Marty McFly running over various monsters in the Mystery Machine is enough to entice me.

@Knuckles From what I recall, TMNT used a health bar system as opposed to Smash's blast zones. The Cartoon Network game was the only one to mimic Smash Bros in that fashion (BTW, don't buy the 3DS and Wii versions, they suck eggs).

On topic, I guess a fighting game makes sense for the licence, but I'm not going to make assumptions about it's quality just yet. For all we know, it could go either way.

@BLPs You make some fair points. I can understand how the comparison between a PS1 and an NES is unfair in the context of superior specs and you're absolutely right in saying that the quality of the game at hand is the main factor. Frankly, I should have paid more attention to these facts before blindly posting my opinion. However, two of your points can also apply to the Virtual Console NES titles, namely the poor quality of the port and that they don't age well. But I'd imagine personal opinion coupled with the quality of the games would be the main deciding point, like you said. Let's just agree I posted something fairly selfish and move on, shall we?

All we really need is a crossbuy system and cheaper prices. Let me put it this way, if you were given the choice to buy either a PS1 game on the PS3 or an NES game on the Wii U Virtual Console, with both costing the same amount, you'd most likely go with the former, regardless of your opinions towards Nintendo or Sony.

My favourite track is Big Blue. As for karts and drivers, I quite like the Bone Rattler with the Boy Villager at the helm. I think Nintendo could do with more DLC in the next couple of years. Kirby DLC with Kirby and King Dedede as drivers? The Pimpmobile from 3D World as a car? The possibilities are still vast, so I could picture more packs being made.

Troggy commented on Mario Kart Super Circuit Arrives on the Wii U ...:

@AlexSora89 Finest? You may consider it fine (Which I respect), but I personally can't stand the handling. It's really slippery and loose in comparison to the other games in the series. Considering that you need good handling for any racing game, Super Circuit is just rubbish by default. The only course I had any fun on was Ribbon Road.

Well, @Quorthon. Just because I said I was a fan of Lego doesn't mean I'm the kind of guy to act all: 'OMIGODIMUSTCOLLECTALLOFTHEMBUTNOTALLOFTHEMBECUZMONEY'. I'm a fan, but not an avid collector. That's probably why Dimensions doesn't appeal to me, price-wise.

@CharlyDunst Look, I know that Infinity and Trap Team are cheaper because of getting price cuts. What I'm saying is that Dimensions has a launch price tag that put me off. Hell, when Infinity 2 first came out, it was £55 new. That's already cheaper than Dimensions by a long way (Also, I am a fan of Lego and I like the concept, but it's the price of the whole package that's holding me back. Which is a common issue for Lego, come to think of it).

The price for the main game by itself is ludicrous. £90?!? I could buy both Disney Infinity 2 and Skylanders Trap Team with a figure each for that (Both are the main competitors, so not a good start)! The price is ridiculous and I could see parents going "Well, Tomothy. The Lego game was too difficult for us to afford, so how about we get some Skylanders instead?" as a result. Bugger off, Lego.

Troggy commented on Xbox Boss Phil Spencer Reckons "It Would Be Co...:

You know, considering Spencer's stance on the matter, it might be a good cross-promotional technique for Nintendo and Microsoft to do this. I'd imagine that if such a thing takes off, Microsoft could easily make it so (like Minecraft on Playstation) Nintendo is allowed to use the Banjo licence for new games and re-releases. I'd imagine such a partnership would be a win-win all around, for Nintendo, Microsoft and the fans of the Banjo series.

I'll get the Toad remote, as the colours on the Bowser remote look horrible. In the future, I'd like to see some controllers based on other Nintendo franchises. If a King Dedede controller was to rear it's head, I'd grab it in a heartbeat.

Troggy commented on Review: Meme Run (Wii U eShop):

I'm glad it's not coming to Europe. Regardless of quality, any game that is making money off of the work made by other artists and creators that they don't have the licence to use is terrible. If I made a game like this, I'd make it free, or at least get the licence to all the sounds and images taken from other sources. Unless Ninjapig have proof that they DID get the rights, I'm staying away from this game. I'm not going to give it any further attention.

I've played a few matches of For Glory mode on a PAL retail copy and nothing out of the ordinary happened. Either way, I'm going to try and avoid using the online mode for a while until a patch floats on by. Not sure about data management though. Maybe that's fine to use.
