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:

http://metro.co.uk/2013/11/19/super-mario-3d-world-review-the-cats-meow-4193103/

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).

Worthy commented on Wii Party U and Wii Fit U Deliver Major Increa...:

I see alot of people complaining about how Nintendo could lean towards casuals because of this sales urge, but I have a great solution to this problem...

...bombard the emails of third parties with a link to this article to show that the WiiU is on the rise and now have the 'install base' to buy there games.

What's the worse that could happen? We get GTA V perhaps?

@unrandomsam said " Somehow Facebook and Google don't have that reputation. Even though the things they do make it much easier for a child to be tricked into revealing their location at all times to somebody. (Google latitude at least used to allow you to reveal via your phone your location to anybody else at all times. Dunno whether it still does)".

Exactly my point and lets not forget that the ios has had it's fair share of problems (ie: kids buying games 'accidentally') yet that didn't get the same amount of news coverage that 'the 3DS makes you go blind' BS did.

Also what about the negative Nintendo news as of late? Yet very few of those sites talking about WiiU losses, don't mention about the success of the 2DS... but sadly if this situation got worse, the media will be over it.

Worthy commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Safe and Family-Frie...:

I applaud whoever wrote that article because someone had to say it.

Whilst I understand everyones anger about Swapnote going (I too am gutted), you have to remember that with all the negative press Nintendo has been getting as of late (and alot of people jumping at every chance to do so), the last thing that Nintendo needs is another media scaremongering story and the 3DS getting a reputation as a 'pedo device'.

Seriously have we all forgotten about The Suns Newspapers attack on the 3DS during launch and how they claimed "The 3D effect makes kids go blind" and how people were asking for refunds because "The 3D effect made them sick and go dizzy"?

Whilst I agree with the article that Nintendo have been heavy handed here and that they could just disable the photo feature, I feel Nintendo are wise to be cautious, after all 1 person complained to ofcom about a WiiU ad 'being misleading' and i've not seen any since... sadly Nintendo have alot of enemies that want to see them fail.

Worthy commented on Iwata: Wii Fit U's Free Trial Period Will Impr...:

Does anyone know if you can unlock the full free game with the Fit Meter after the trial ends?

ie: if I download the free trial now and it ends before the Fit Meter arrived, can I still keep the full free game when the Fit Meter arrives?

Just curious because it says 'during the trial' alot.

Worthy commented on Nintendo Disables Swapnote's SpotPass Service ...:

I kinda feel sorry for Nintendo here because if some sicko sends a selfy of his privates on Swapnote the media will be all over it due to Nintendos Family Image.

However sending your friend code to people you don't know is the equivalent to talking to strangers outside, so parents should point that out, explain how to delete friend codes of naughty people and monitor their 3DS usage more.

Unfortunately I think Nintendo have done the right thing at the moment, perhaps bring it back at a later date by removing the upload photo feature (sad, but it has to go) and add a report button and god forbid... an age limit?

Worthy commented on Nintendo Download: 31st October (North America):

Wii Fit U because I can get the Fit Meter for free on Amazon using my Gift Cards that i've been given... SO I GET THE FULL GAME FOR FREE!!

BTW do I have to sinc the meter with the game during the trial or can I do it after the trial? (ie: if Amazon are late delivering my fit meter and my trial period is up, can I still unlock the full game once the meter arrives?)

Worthy commented on EA's Financial Figures Reveal Dismal Wii U Sof...:

@belmont I agree with you there as EA are doing well but you missed my point a bit.

The point I was trying to make is that despite the 3DS doing well, EA still does a rubbish job with it, so what makes people think that if the WiiU starts picking up, that EA will start putting more effort into WiiU games?

In my opinion if WiiU sales pick up next year EA will give WiiU users Fifa 15 Legacy edition and if Wii Fit U takes off they'll make an EA active: legacy edition, lol!

Worthy commented on EA's Financial Figures Reveal Dismal Wii U Sof...:

Two things that puzzle me here:

1) EA releases more games on other consoles, so basically this is like saying 10 games put together sold more than 1.

2) The 3DS is dominating the handheld market at the moment, yet EA still does a rubbish job of supporting it.

I've seen this article on a different site where it also states EA made more off the Vita than the 3DS... so if you go where the gamers are, then shouldn't you pull support for the Vita too?
