I love the White version. The expensive of the gamepad meant there was no option of a built in HDD. The annoying thing I find is the Wii u not only requires a HDD but it requires a HDD with a separate power supply. These HDD are far more expensive than the USB powered versions.

Wii-1 commented on Feature: The Key Details on Splatoon, Nintendo...:

I played the last demo yesterday and I want to buy the game less than I did before I played it. I'm not happy about the way the game will have loads of DLC in the future or the Amiibo thing unlocking 20 special missions.

The best way to improve the eshop is to have bigger, better, sales. More game on special and not just games that are not shifting but good games.

As Nintendo fans we have stood by them with Wii u so it is the least they could do for us. Nintendo need to maybe stop trying to milk the fans. It could be a good thing for both Nintendo and the fans.

I bought R-Type Dimensions over the W/end on PSN for €5. Believe me it's a great game. Meanwhile on Nintendo eshop I can get a NES game for a fiver 😋. I don't know if the prices are totally the problem on Nintendo eshop. The problem is, from my personal point of view, I am not going to buy the same games over that I only bought a couple of years ago on Wii.

I didn't transfer my Wii games over to Wii u and I'm not going to. I like them where they are. I also bought Gradius V on PSN the W/end for €9.99 and it did make me think Sony are selling PS2 games for a tenner but Nintendo are looking for, cough 😳 €20 for Wii games in the eshop. I do think the price with Wii games in the eshop are well of the mark and Nintendo have got it wrong.

Maybe what they need to do is adjust the price of each game individual. Like let's say €8 for Super Mario Kart is a fair price but that does not mean all SNES games should be €8. I don't know the VC was exciting at the time but I have all the games now and believe it or not they are the only games I really play.

Wii-1 commented on Video: So, How Fast Is 200cc In Mario Kart 8?:

I tried it yesterday and found it near impossible. Last night I had an idea I haven't tried yet. Maybe the the way to play it is by using the right stick to accelerate. That way it would be possible to balance the throttle in the corners. I'll try later when I get a chance.

I would like some free DLC thank you very much. I hope Nintendo don't start trying to milk us for every penny we have.

With a game like this it should be free. What happened with Mario Kart 8 is totally different.

The game feels complete now. I only bought the 2 packs 2 days ago. I haven't had the chance to try 200cc mode yet. I'm starting a 50cc just to clear it.

This'll be the most expensive game I've ever bought weighing in at €72. That is apart from Street Fighter2 which I paid £70 for back in the early 90s

Maybe that is what both companies fell out over in the early 90s. Bandai used to distribute Nintendo games in the UK but in the early 90s both fell out and it was near impossible to get new SNES titles for about 6 months. They were all locked in a warehouse in the UK by Bandai brcause of the dispute they both had. I remember it well.

It looks fantastic. The thing that worries me is; This is 200cc mode, at one point in the race Mario was going backwards, yet he finished second 😳 150cc is the hard mode so 200cc should be very hard? That looked easy.

I'll be keeping a close eye on it anyway and I'll probably buy it as soon as it's released. I can't say I do that with many games.
The reviews will be very important. I will be expecting excellent reviews from the few sites I frequent. I'd be shocked if it got bad reviews and I have to have to have a rethink.

@hylian-pudding
I didn't get angry. My point was don't knock it especially if you haven't even played it.

Your after saying something else that is a bit confusing "Doesn't change the fact that, by today's standards, the game is not THAT good." Eh how he heck would you know? Since you haven't even played it!. 😳

@hylian-pudding
Your wrong. Mario 64 does deserve 10/10. I played it again last year on Wii and I can confirm its one of the greatest games ever made. I also had it back in the day. It's a fantastic looking game. Don't be such a graphics junkie.

Gaming didn't just get good when you bought your first console. It had been brilliant for years before that. Ya know putting down an absolute epic game that you haven't even played is a bit pathetic.

I could nearly guarantee M$ had Nintendo analysed to see would it be possible to buy. M$ didn't have to buy Sega. They have become the new Sega. 😉

It's a mad world where Nintendo are snubbed by the core gamer. I don't think these people who buy PS4 and Xbone and not Nintendo are gamers at all.

Nintendo will really have to pull something out of the bag regarding NX if they want to creat the excitement created by previous consoles. Either way I'll be getting one. It will be really interesting to see what they come up with.

If it has a touch screen I'll cry.

Wii-1 commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Heading For a Period of ...:

I think it could be a good idea. Think of the massive new audience Nintendo can tap into. It could be like advertising for their main console.

Nintendo needs to change their business model because the old one is clearly not working. I just hope their next console is a hit and we get some classic Nintendo games.

I got an iPad last Christmas and I never downloaded one game. They just don't appeal to me. I don't see a treat from tablet/smartphone gaming. Consoles and tablets can live side by side.

@PlywoodStick
The advanced techniques you mention, I never even heard of them😊. I have all four smash games If you include the N64 version. I don't have Project M. I'm kind of only starting to learn how to play now.

I love the Gamecube controller but the shoulder buttons can stick into my finger; the little edge they have. I looked at a video of project M just now, I might download it in the future.

Wii-1 commented on Another Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter Batt...:

As much as I am a big fan of the GameCube controller, the Wii classic controller pro is perfect for playing smash.
The set up I use is:
A grab
B attack
X jump
Y special
ZR / ZL block
And no jumping with the analog stick.

At the end of the day it is Nintendo's fault the game is overpriced. The main reason being it was a limited print. Hopefully this helps drive the price down and also lets us have a chance of owning this truly classic game.

Rhythm Heaven Fever / Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise was €3.99 in Argos only recently.

I'm looking forward to downloading Metroid trilogy and Kirby in the next couple of weeks. Most of the games on your list can be got for less than a tenner anyway. I'd also like to see Excitebots. Mario strikers is an incredible game.

I hope Nintendo put up games that are rare and overpriced. I will be downloading Metroid and Kirby. I'd like to see Mario sports mix. I don't have it. Imagine if they released Super Mario Allstars. 😃

Wii-1 commented on Bidding Hits $100,000 on Uber-Rare NES Game, S...:

It's a bit mad really. I started collecting over the last few years. I have six brand new full version white Wii's and a lot of brand new Wii remotes, nunchuck's, classic controllers and GameCube controllers and a new GameCube console. It's a strange habit that I'm convincing myself will make me a profit in the future.

To pay this kind of money (if I had it) for one game does not appeal to me. There are other ways to invest big money. Different strokes different folks.

Wii-1 commented on Nintendo Steps Away From The Brazilian Market:

Interesting read. The prices the consoles are, means it would be probably cheaper to fly or sail to the States and have a nice holiday when your at it.

Somehow I don't think it will effect people who live in the Favela 😉
