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.

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.



Wii-1 commented on Not Everyone is Thrilled That Metroid Prime Tr...:

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.



Wii-1 commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

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. πŸ˜ƒ



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 πŸ˜‰



Wii-1 commented on GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U Stock on...:

I am using the Wii Classic controller pro which is perfect. I have 2 Wii u pro controllers but I don't want to "hammer them out of it" playing Smash, and the same goes for my GameCube controllers. Classic controller pro is fine.



Wii-1 commented on Poll: Have You Been Able to Buy the Super Smas...:

Got both controllers black & white online from Hong Kong. $34 for the white and $30 for the black. I ordered them a week apart to hopefully avoid paying import tax. 😍. Great price works out at €28 & €24



Wii-1 commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo 64:

I love the N64. Back in the day to say I was hyped when the console was released would be an understatement. The release date for the N64 must have slipped ten times. Nintendo told a lot of lies in them days.

I qued all night when it was eventually released in in March 1997.



Wii-1 commented on White Wii U 8GB System Trade Price Has Been Sl...:

The original Basic white wii u didn't come with a sensor bar. I should know because I bought one 😊. I bought it for an ok price at the time £149. I wouldn't have liked to have spent the official asking price of £250.

The mario kart bundle for Β£200 that Amazon have at the moment is incredible good value.



Wii-1 commented on White Wii U 8GB System Trade Price Has Been Sl...:

Am I the only person who thinks the black wii u looks horrible. The reason there might be a lot of white wii u's in stock is not because people don't like them. Up until now Nintendo made a mess of selling them. The basic wii u was very bad value, there wasn't even a sensor bar with it.



Wii-1 commented on This Lovely White Super Smash Bros. GameCube C...:

I know because nowhere in the article did it say they were region locked. I have the official white GameCube controller with the long cord that was only released in Japan and it works fine. I have never heard of a controller being region locked. I've bought official Wii remotes in Hong Kong that work perfect in Europe. Controllers are not region locked.



Wii-1 commented on Amazon UK Offers Bargain Prices to Shift Its W...:

I'm looking at these bundles all week. I've been trying to justify buying a second Wii u and I can't. The Mario Kart bundle is the best value. I was thinking if I bought it and then sold the 2 separate games, since I already own them. I could have the Wii party u pak at a good price.

A lot of if's. The problem with Nintendo consoles nowadays I think; is Nintendo are packing 2 AA batteries with their consoles that have a Wii Remote in the box. If you want to collect and leave the box sealed that could be a problem. The AA batteries might leak in the future.
