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

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. 😃



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 😉



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 £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.



Wii-1 commented on Review: Super Mario All-Stars 25th Anniversary...:

Finally managed to track down a copy and it arrived today. I really wish I hadn't bothered. The thing that bothers me the most is the slooooow pal speeds.
I have a couple of Wii's and one has homebrew on it, the rom I downloaded for free that I have running on that Wii is far superior. It runs at the speed it is supposed to run at.

Whoever gave this game the green light to run at pal speed made a big mistake. Disappointing.



Wii-1 commented on Review: Donkey Kong Country (Wii U eShop / Sup...:

Not one of my favourites but when this game was first shown to the public back in the day the graphics were jaw dropping. People though it was running on the yet to be released Ultra64 not the SNES.

I don't like the gameplay and I have tried but it's to repetitive.



Wii-1 commented on's £180 Wii U Bundle with Bayonetta...:

The ShopTo deal is really good. The white 8gb has a lot going for it, for a tenner you can expand the memory with a 32gb memory stick and it looks better than the black version.

@Jellitoe I agree 100% .People who have the 32gb version have nothing to be shouting about. If you really want to go digital a HDD is required on both models.



Wii-1 commented on Wii U Owner Proves That Rejecting The End-User...:

It is a little disturbing. The only thing I could say about this is you would probably be entitled to a full refund from the shop where you bought the console. It would be trickie but under the law the product would be unfit for purpose.

Nintendo should not have the right to disable YOUR console. They don't own it YOU do. Unfortunately it's the way things have gone and who is going to challenge them? Nobody. If somebody did challenge them in a court I think we could see a landmark ruling that outlawed this practice.



Wii-1 commented on Weirdness: Sony Fan Creates Petition In Hope O...:

I like it. In a weird kinda way it highlights the games industry as a whole. Sony fans think it's all about the most powerful console. Nintendo think it's all about games.

Power doesn't matter as much ad it used to. The Wii has loads of power as far as I'm concerned.



Wii-1 commented on Bayonetta 2 in North America Comes With a Rath...: are charging £15 extra for the special edition. I think Nintendo get away with this to often. They give European gamers a bad deal and nothing is said.

You can't even buy a white Wiiu pro controller here :-) it's a bit of a joke.



Wii-1 commented on Nintendo 64x64: Perfect Dark:

The N64 was pushed hard to run PD. It was better than Goldeneye but on the whole Goldeneye was better! If that makes sence. :-)



Wii-1 commented on Nintendo 64x64: Banjo-Kazooie:

Brilliant game. I can remember the feeling I had when I played this on N64 back in the day. Only a few games ever gave me that feeling. Love it.
