Worthy commented on Poll: Who'll Be Your Main amiibo Buddy?:

I wasn't going to get one, but I have a £5 off voucher for one, so i'm getting Donkey Kong and renaming him Davey Kong to wind-up my dad who keeps getting called Donkey Kong, lol!



Worthy commented on Nintendo Outlines Confusing amiibo Save Data L...:

So let me get this straight:

If a game saves onto the Amiibo itself (ie: Smash Bros), I won't be able to use it on another game that saves onto the Amiibo without deleting the previous data?

However if a game that saves onto the Amiibo itself (ie: Smash Bros), I can still use it on games that don't save onto the Amiibo (ie: Mario Kart 8) without looking any data?



Worthy commented on Bandai Namco Announces Ace Combat: Assault Hor...:

I think those saying "this should be paid DLC instead" are missing the point of Amiibos:

If it was paid DLC you'll have to buy each content separately per game which is costly, but if you own just 1 Amiibo, then depending on who it is, you can use it to unlock more stuff without paying extra in many games.

ie: let's say the Mario Amiibo is going to be compatible with 10 games in the future, that's 10 extra content for the price of 1 Amiibo, but if it was paid DLC and you got charged for them extras in them games, unless it comes to a £1 each (i've yet to see £1 DLC yet) you're getting you're moneys worth.

My advice for Amiibo buyers is to avoid the obscure characters for now (ie: Little Mac) and focus on one's that you know will be in alot of other games too (ie: Yoshi).



Worthy commented on "The Sky Is The Limit" For amiibo, As Nintendo...:

If Nintendo were smart they'd cut a deal with the makers of Skylanders & Disney Infinity to make them work as PLAYABLE CHARACTERS in the WiiU/3DS versions of the game using NFC instead of the portal. This would mean that Skylanders & Disney Infinity on the WiiU/3DS would have more playable characters than the other versions, LOL!



Worthy commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:

@Caryslan I agree with you 100% and to add to your point:

1) Them Wiiu 'gimped' ports you talk about cost the exact same price as the Xbox/Ps equivalent, but often get less features or no DLC.

2) Delayed Wiiu games cost the same when they are released, even though the Xbox/PS equivalents have come out earlier cough*Watch_Dogs*cough.

So if you own either an Xbox360, Xbox1, Ps3 or a Ps4, would you wait patiently for several months to buy a 'gimped' Wiiu port at same price as the non-Wiiu version, even though it'll have less features, no DLC support and by the time of release, you could probably be find an Xbox360/Xbox1/Ps3/Ps4 copy in a bargin bin by the time the Wiiu version gets released?

Seriously if any game developers are reading this: either sell your games for £20 or include unique features and DLC built on the disc to justify selling it full price!! IT'S NOT ROCKET SCIENCE!!

EDIT: This was in response to your previous post.



Worthy commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:

Reggie makes a good point here, After all you don't see Xbox One owners say "i'll buy a PS4 as a secondry console" and you don't see PS4 owners say "i'll buy an Xbox One as a secondry console", but you do see both PS4 and Xbox One owners say "i'll buy a WiiU as a secondry console" because it's different to the console they currently own.

As for 3rd party, I still say most of them hold a grudge from the early days when Nintendo were strict (ie: no blood in Mortal Kombat) or a recently developed grudge (ie: EA Origin fiasco). This is becoming more obvious with excuses like "adult games don't sell on Wiiu" getting proven wrong by Bayonetta 2's success and with the install base rising, it'll be interesting to see if they do release AAA games or make another excuse up?



Worthy commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U European Release D...:

According to the Wii U Facebook page: "The Super Smash Bros. for Wii U + Mario amiibo bundle will still launch on 5th December"...

...which makes the bundle more odd because for the EXACT SAME PRICE you could order both separately and get both on November 28th, LOL!



Worthy commented on Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty Wii U Delay Seems to b...:

They could get round this in 1 of 2 ways:

1) Do what other eshop games do and put a disclaimer on the page listing how many blocks are required and that you may need a hard drive.
2) Release it on a disc (maybe throw in HD Abes Exodus on the same disc hint, hint).



Worthy commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:

For those saying "if we don't buy it, then Ubisoft will think Mature games are not for the Wii-U"...

...simple solution: buy Bayonetta 2 and show them that Mature games released on Wii-U do work when they are released at the proper time, with actually marketing and not run by a company who delayed the Wii-U version of Rayman Legends to release it alongside the Xbox/PS versions, but couldn't delay the Xbox/PS version of this game to release alongside the Wii-U version?



Worthy commented on Nintendo Network 3DS Promotion to Offer Free S...:

Yes more free games for my 3DS which currently has:
The Free Excite bike - From when the 3DS eshop first began.
The Free Nes and GBA games - From the Abassador program.
The Free Zelda four swords game - From when it was Zeldas 25th anniversary.
...and now Mario Delux.




Worthy commented on Nintendo Titles Fail to Infiltrate the UK All-...:

@Jamesy2013 i'm from the UK and I also remember when the 3DS first came out and nearly everyone was slating it because according to the media 'it makes people go dizzy' and ironically that same media is now proclaiming the 3DS to be the best handheld, plus people don't seem to get dizzy or sick anymore because of it, lol!

Sadly we Brits seem to look down on Nintendo until sales rise in other countries and then we Brits suddenly change our tune and jump on the bandwagon because 'everyone else is getting them'... ie; like what happened with the original Wii.

BTW i'm not having a pop at my fellow countrymen, just pointing out how quick we are to change our tune when something is 'the in thing' at the moment and it's not just Nintendo as even iphone apps have a bandwagon. Seriously my mate said Bejewelled is rubbish and is another boring 'swap stuff to get three in a row' game... and now she plays Candy Crush which is basically the same thing, I WONDER WHY? lol!



Worthy commented on Parent Trap: StreetPass Makes Social Networks ...:

I've not been to a pub for years, so imagine my shock when I returned home after taking my dad to local old pub for his birthday, to pull out the 3DS from my pocket and this time not get a green light, but a blue light with a notification telling you are in a Nintendo Zone hotspot?

As if getting Nintendo Zone in an old fashioned pub full of oldies wasn't weird enough, that thing alone gave me 7 Street Passes including a Special Nintendo Mii with gold pants.

BTW I have no idea what Nintendo Zone is, but i'm guessing it has a relay system where it stores Mii's and classes them as Street Passes?



Worthy commented on Nintendo Applies Minor Miiverse Update on Wii ...:

@DestinyMan I know what you mean because i've seen the 'Final Boss' stamp posted in World 3, but I didn't think much of it at the time (I didn't even know it was Bowser, lol!).

I think the real spoilers that are ruining the game for people are the one's telling you how to get the green stars and stamps. I'm not talking about the cleverly cryptic posts like "want the 2nd star? Get a cat suit then!", i'm talking more about those that give you a detailed exact location, lol!

Like you said, people need to use the spoiler tag more.



Worthy commented on Former Sony Developer Feels The Wii U "Won't S...:

@Frapp I agree because the man was a genius and I ment no disrespect by bringing his name into it because I used to own a ZX Spectrum. (yeah you kids talking about long loading times should be thankful you didn't have to wait hours for a game to load, lol!).

BTW just to add to the point I was making in a previous post on here about Atari founder Nolan Bushnel slating Nintendo and that he worked on Project NEMO (see the article on here further up). I noticed in that article alot of Nintendo hate and that NEMO might have stood for ‘Nintendo Ends Mid-October'... interesting!



Worthy commented on Former Sony Developer Feels The Wii U "Won't S...:

"Kenny Linder — a former developer at the now-defunct Sony-owned BigBig Studios"

So to recap:

We had the guy in charge at NOW DEFUNCT Atari (who according to another article on here worked on project Nemo) slate Nintendo.

A head of NOW DEFUNCT THQ (also Naughty Dog grew when this guy left) slate Nintendo.

...and now another guy from a NOW DEFUNCT company slating Nintendo.

Maybe my joke about them being jealous because Nintendo outlasted them, has some truth in it? LOL!

BTW I remember joking yesterday on the THQ guy article, saying something along the lines of "i'll await the next article from a guy who's company is NOW DEFUNCT to slate Nintendo", and even though my joke guess of 'Former ZX Spectrum creator: Clive Sinclair" was wrong... you gotta admit that I was half right, LOL!



Worthy commented on Super Mario 3D World Struggles Against PS4 Tit...:

@jrob23 it can't be advertising as i've actually see alot of adverts for Mario 3D World.

Xbox One have the most ad's because i've seen 5 mini adverts in 1 ad break, each with a funny Shazam symbol. (Dead Rising, Forza, Fifa 14, Ryse and Titanfall)

However i've not seen many PS4 adverts (not as frequent as Xbox One) but they started sponsoring alot of Channel 4 shows and the newspaper ad in the Sun saying "sorry Rosey, 22 from Middlesex, this page 3 is for the players" got alot of news coverage because it pushed a topless model to page 5 (instead of the infamous page 3).

Personally I think it's more to do with the shops themselves because WiiU games are not well stocked, often hidden amongst Wii games, relegated to a tiny shelf or in some cases, not sold at all.

Seriously when I bought my WiiU from Tescos, the staff had no clue what I was talking about and I, a shopper who has never been in the store before, had to lead the guy WORKING IN THE VIDEO GAME SECTION of the store, to the Wii section and point out the WiiU price sticker to him... ironically as soon as i'd shown it him, he conveniently said "oh that, yes, we have 1 left" (he said this without even checking, then after actually checking, he came back with 2 bundles).



Worthy commented on Former Naughty Dog And THQ Head Jason Rubin Sa...:

Why is the head of 'NOW DEFUNCT THQ' talking about Nintendo being irrelevant?

The Atari guy said the same thing and his company no longer exists either... maybe they are both jealous because Nintendo outlasted both of them?

Oh well, i'll await the up and coming article about how ZX Spectrum founder Clive Sinclair also thinks Nintendo is irrelevant, lol!



Worthy commented on iPhone Gaming Controller Could Mean "The End O...:

@unrandomsam that is exactly what I mean. If app games do become a problem, then get them in eShop and play them on the Wii U controller.

Like you said, Nintendo have Unity and I no doubt all the games that work on ipads coiuld work on the Wii U game pad. The only problem I see is with Microtransaction games and in app purchases.



Worthy commented on iPhone Gaming Controller Could Mean "The End O...:

The problem with these controller add-on's for Iphones is the fact not every game is compatible with it.

BTW The best one i've seen is The Moga which is like a Megadrive/Genesis controller... and even that isn't big



Worthy commented on CNET Outlines Console Purchase Choices And Hig...:

@Kodeen I think @rmeyer is talking about reviews like this from Game Central here:

They start the review off with this line:
"Super Mario 3D World is not the best game ever made. Which is about as far as we have to go in order to say anything negative about it"
...and then go on about the constant game saving messages, lol!

I've seen alot of reviews on other sites which are similar and sound more like the reviewer wants to hate the game, but can't find a good enough reason to do so.



Worthy commented on Super Mario 3D World Reaches Top Spot On Amazo...:

So let me get this straight:

A game that isn't even out yet and is for a console that isn't doing well at the moment is beating both Xbox One and PS4 on Amazon?

If you went back in time and told me that this time last year, i'd laugh in your face, lol!



Worthy commented on Mario Kart Arcade GP DX Is Drifting Into Weste...:

I remember playing the 2nd Arcade Mario Kart game and spending lots on it because you have a boss race after the 4th course of the theme (ie: you race Metal Mario on the Rainbow Road theme).

I also remember a weird Pac-Man course where it's in Pac-land, then you hit the pixelated symbol from the old games and go into a Pac-Man maze.

Pitty they don't bring these Mario Kart Arcade games to the Wii U, either as an eshop title or DLC courses for Mario Kart 8?



Worthy commented on Review: Wii Fit U (Wii U):

Nice review and I agree with it, although you forgot to mention unlockable clothes and the fact the FitMeter counts altitude too (my stairs are 3ft apparently, lol!).

The best part for me is that my Wii Fit favourite, Boxing Aerobics, just got a whole lot better with the addition of a Free Mode (i'm still hoping you can unlock 30 minutes for it).
