@rjejr agreed on the lack of change in this 'new' range of amiibo, they should have been more different! I got a toad amiibo off the shelf in a store luckily and I'm halfway through the game so I've been fortunate timing wise. and imo it's lame of Nintendo to not make a separate amiibo for captain toad as he is in essence new ip compared to standard toad and they just blew their chance to show this to consumers and define the character as different formally!

Picked up my toad amiibo yesterday, looking forward to trying this out today......if I can bring myself to open the packaging! I'll only buy amiibo that add to games not collections with the exception of wario and waluigi who are my favourites ;)

This is brilliant, should have been done ages ago, but brilliant all the same. I've got no points because I panicked and spent mine on Wii points when I heard the program would close......bit premature there maybe =/

I'm a fan of many two tribes games and loved the first toki tori but I just couldn't get going on number 2 despite my best efforts. I don't know what I was missing and I'll have another go soon but I've rarely got so little value for Monet from an e shop game. Could yet be amazing but I havnt found it accessible.....

ULTRA-64 commented on The Nintendo 3DS Was North America's Best-Sell...:

@Quorthon on the Hollywood thing I agree 100%, there is just no invention anymore. Anything original has been spread so thin with remakes and spin offs that the concept is wasted. Gaming is a little different as the markets and audience vary through the platforms. Nintendo have always made money by selling the same thing repackaged, it's their standard formula (as you illustrated in an above post). Now although this is not an outright good thing, it makes them enough money to maintain a foothold in a dying industry as both hardware and software manufacturer/development and as the innovator of more New technology and gameplay options than the rest of the industry put together. Put simply, we both didn't like remakes as much as new games but if I said 1 more Zelda remake and they will be able to afford to make a fund a risky new ip . Eg, splatoon, would you take it??

@Quorthon remakes are, like it or not, the biggest money spinners for companies. I'm talking film,tv,gaming and even books......
The low investment/high user base makes the risk low and loss unlikely. Just look at the ps/xbone line up of remakes too. Now imo there IS too many and I prefer original games but as an industry gaming is quite stale and risk free... In time maybe this will change but only when they have a financial incentive!

@outburst your probably right, I prefer the idea of remastered games aswell(especially as I got an n64 last year). The problem is I only buy home consoles not handhelds so I miss.... Well , all of them! It seems the norm to switch from home to handheld which works for most but I'm still gutted to miss games like luigis mansion2 and the remakes =(

@Kirby_Fan_DL3 people have been selling things with nudity and schoolgirls long before there was such a thing as a game! Let's not forget every 'girl' on western tv is played by an older sexier actress, it's just more subtle. Japan have a more open culture regarding these things is all.

@erv I see your point there, maybe it's an age thing (I'm 30) but I have more games than time to play them. I only buy good games but I can't give them the time they sometimes deserve even of I did buy them cheap!

ULTRA-64 commented on Nintendo of America Store Offering Refurbished...:

@JaxonH the only time nland comes out is for multiplayer, the Luigi/Mario games usually and the metroid one was Good with other gamers. For 1 player I went through a phase of playing the dk one but I feel no draw to finish any off(unusual for me), they got boring fast and have no replay value for me. the other modes are a waste which is a shame as they have no depth for veterans or accessibility for newbies. It was just not good enough in so many ways for me, but tastes vary and I've certainly bought worse games in the past!

@gatorboi352 I'm gonna stick my neck on the line and agree 100% about Nintendo land......it was a massive fail! It was unwelcoming, clunky, lacking in content, unrepresentative of the franchise's included and just not good enough fun for a party game overall! Now if I'd got it free I'd be less bitter but I paid £50 at launch for that and got ripped off big time. Even game and wario was better imo.....
The gamepad on the other hand is imo a revalation in gaming and is great in my house! ;)

I've just started guacamelee.....I'll buy this afterwards or when it's next on sale and hopefully the dlc will be out by then. Think I'd rather play it with more content than to go back to a game when I've beaten it once , or is that just me?!?

But selfish of me but I voted twilight princess because it's the game I least want to see on the Wii u!! It bothers me that Nintendo don't like releasing remakes on handheld and home consoles, since I don't have a 3ds I wouldnt vote to reduce games I want to play ;)

@Zach I agree 100% . whilst we don't know the details to attach blame to a party on this, the list of games Nintendo has missed out on releasing for various reasons compared to the releases of sub-par quality they have praised is hard to look at. They make amazing games, nobody doubts this. They just don't seem to get key relationships running in their favour often now and pump out average games selling of the back of amazing franchises too often for my personal taste.

Sony is gradually becoming the dominant force in Japan it seems, even the ps4 outselling the top 3ds!!! Of course this is a short term change for now but would never have been the case in the last few years no matter what Sony released......worrying!!

@KodyDawg agreed, I prefer the yellow traditional outfit more! I bought the other one already so when that arrives I'll keep it sealed for collecting(not normally my thing) and open the new yellow one instead for game use.
as others have said though, waluigi is the one I'm REALLY wanting!!!

Shame, love the simple racing mechanics of games like this. All they had to do was keep it interesting with tracks , game modes and variety.......I liked tnt racing for that very reason-simple driving but lots of variety to keep you playing 'till the end!!

Only bad thing about this game is that I can't play it!! I dont do handhelds so I'll miss this, really wish this was on the Wii u instead or aswell as. He'll, I'd settle for a vc release......it's the only 3d Zelda I've not played properly!!

Love the concept but don't have time for anything new for a while yet. Just finished bayonetta and nearly got through stealth Inc. 2 but loads more to get through yet and I've not even grabbed shovel knight!!
