TL;DR: Disappointed yet again.

Aria of Sorrow is a great game! belongs...ON THE 3DS!!! Why bring bring handheld games with a native resolution of 240 x 140 to the Wii U and tv's which support 8 times that resolution? I've seen it, it just looks like pixel soup!! Yes, you can play it on the gamepad but most of us play it on the TV anyway. It just don't get it....

And why....why....WHY!??!?! aren't there more NES and SNES games being released for the Wii U? Retro gamers want them so badly and Nintendo is just like; NOPE!! Why oh why :(



Vriess commented on Nintendo Download: 12th March (Europe):

VC games harming the sales of indie games? Nonsense! People tend to think twice when spending €50 on a single game, but not when it comes to VC titles at €5 to €8 a piece. It's Nintendo's fault for not giving certain titles enough exposure in the eShops and to making the search for older titles by category practically impossible.

If the eShop did a better job at presenting the games and making it easier to search

I'm gonna give Streets of Rage 3D a whirl. Hoping for part 2 soon. That one is the best!

Edit: Of course!! First one of those obligatory stability patches before being allowed access to the eShop. Typical!!! GRRRRRRRR :X



Vriess commented on Club Nintendo in Japan is Full of Delightful T...:

And here in Europe?

  • a Mario cap
  • stickers or wallpapers...
  • (3)DS cartridge holders,
  • a (3)DS pouch in different colors
  • a couple of posters and mobile ringtones,
  • the Mario Galaxy OST (edit: not there anymore)
  • Nintendo Points cards.....
    The same like we've had SINCE YEARS! Why Nintendo...WHY?!?!

Why are ALL of the Lego games are on sale regularly except for City Undercover?? It costs 60 euros in the eShop since it's release, nearly two years ago. Why? The same goes for Scribblenauts Unlimited btw.



Vriess commented on Poll: Are You An Early Adopter With The New Ni...:

I will be picking up the New XL version soon because of the super stable 3D feature. It's supposed to improve upon or eliminate the 3D bleeding/ghosting effect which is visible during dark in-game scenes. This really annoyed me sometimes during OoT3D and Luigi's Mansion 2.



Vriess commented on Nintendo Adds a Bunch of Virtual Console Title...:

I sent an angry (but polite) email to Nintendo a couple of days complaining about the lack of VC titles on the Wii U. They listened? ;)

The title of this article is misleading though... I read it as "a 100 new VC titles".



Vriess commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2015:

Glad to see that Majora's Mask is getting so much love. I hope that the sales figures will match this poll. It would show Nintendo that the fans are willing to put the money where their mouths are. I am so looking forward to playing this awesome game again, and in glorious 3D to boot :D So excited!!!



Vriess commented on Nintendo Download: 11th December (Europe):

"Meh" doesn't cut it...I want to say other things to express my discontent about this weeks offering but my post will be removed if I do. thought about it, so I basically said it anyway!



Vriess commented on PDP GameCube-Style Wired Fight Pads for Donkey...:

They're not yet listed on Amazon France yet. I like the Link-Triforce one :)

What din't you like exactly? Is it the overall built quality, or the feel of the sticks and buttons specifically? The shape of the grips seems a bit odd to me.

What happened to Hori? Some of my best 3rd party controllers are theirs. They produced tons of stuff, way back in the day, but we hardly see any products anymore.

I agree with you opinion about the Xbox360 controller, but for me it's a nostalgia thing. Can't help it. I remember every detail of the day that I bought my Gamecube. The PDP controller is basically wireless too. You plug it into a Wiimote.



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

Also, no interest in Smash or Amiibo. For the Wii U I'm looking forward to Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Zelda Wii U and a couple of indies. I'll buy a PS4 eventually, but probably not before Uncharted 4 and/or The Last Guardian have come out. I've had my share of grievances with Steam, but I can't help but emptying my bank account when the Steam sales start. I am patient, never buy new games but wait a couple of months and then buy 15-20 games for less then 100 Euros! ;) Fallout 4, assuming that it comes out next year, will be the only game I'll be buying full price on Steam.



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

Hahaha. Same thing here. I stock up on PC games during the Steam sales and then have to many games to play. Luxury problem yo! ;)

On the PS3 I still want to play/finish Red Dead Redeption, Okami HD, Ico, Shadow of the Colossus and Ni No Kuni. Flower is nice and relaxing. If you haven't yet, then be sure to play The Last of Us and Journey!!

The one problem with all these great games is....having hardly enough time to play them :(



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

This week is not even that bad! Still, I bought Luigi's Mansion 2 and Kirby Triple Deluxe this week so I'll have to take it easy on the download. Also, I'm holding off for a potential eShop spending frenzy this Christmas.



Vriess commented on Shigeru Miyamoto is Now 62 Years Old:

Retirement age creeping up.... Don't he dare! Not that he doesn't deserve it, he does, but we don't want to miss him just yet :S
