Hello, I am 14 years old and am an avid fan of Nintendo, it all started on christmas 2009 when I received my Wii. My friends one by one moved to the Xbox or PS3, but I just couldn't get into the shooters so I went with nintendo and got all their amazing franchises. I later got a 3DS and then Wii U.

I couldn't help but smile at the third one, Bowser seems so happy and friendly and Kamek seems to be rather befuddled and concentrating hard. I hope we can get a 2D Mario with this art style, it could really brighten up the series if they did a game like this!



Yellowgerbil commented on Nintendo Has "Great Games" But Is Facing A "St...:

@jmax While it is true that the Wii U's gamepad has not been utilised to the extent it could be; we have no idea what they could have in store for us. The games you have mentioned are all typical nintendo games that would have been hard or even impossible to come up with new ways. Now you could argue that they could have been designed differently to use it better, but the games are great typical Nintendo games that would need to be changed vastly to accommodate it.
Some games on the Wii hardly used the motion controls; Smash Bros, Super Mario Galaxy 1/2 and a lot of the other 2D games. Do you remember Donkey Kong country returns; many people did not like it when they added the motion controls to the game, it didn't break it exactly but they just tried to force it on there without much thought. Someone is going to break the barrier at some point (just look at Spin the bottle) and then; I hope it will become clear to the others.



Yellowgerbil commented on Review: Doodle Jump Adventures (3DS):

I cannot buy 3D world due to me living in the UK but I think that I might download a link between worlds tonight or buy it physically on Saturday.
Edge will soon be on my Wii U and also TokiTori which I did not have a chance to purchase last week unfortunately, it will also be the time to get the Pikmin dlc which I have gone without.
I have a good weekend ahead of me!



Yellowgerbil commented on Nintendo Set To End Production of the Wii:

I am really sad to see it go, I had so much fun and clocked over a thousand hours on it... Oh well it is moving out of the living room to my room so I don't think this is the end of mine.
Truly one of my favourite consoles that had so many amazing games on it, may it go down in history as THE game changer of decades.

Two new features, when you hover over a link on the web, it asks whether you want to play the video in the page.
When you download something, it shows how many mega bytes it has done out of the total e.g. 10/1000 . Finding new things everywhere

I think that is what handhelds are designed for, short, fun bursts of playing. The 3DS is just more fun because of the games on it, it is also cheaper than the vita so that makes it a much better deal.
Love the annotation on the picture by the way.



Yellowgerbil commented on Review: Rayman Legends (Wii U):

The Wii U version is the best version thanks to murphy and the Miiverse integration. Going to get this on my brothers birthday, a few days after it is released, we loved origins.



Yellowgerbil commented on Reaction: Our Thoughts on Nintendo Direct - 17...:

I don't see why people are complaining, Nintendo is clearing some of their older announced titles out the way so that we have a cleaner slate for E3 announcements. The reason that they put a few sega games is so that we feel it was not all old content and the Lost World announcement was so that we can hype it for E3.



Yellowgerbil commented on Ubisoft Confident Its Titles Will Attract Game...:

Ubisoft has won me back around after that ordeal in February and they appear to really be trying to help Nintendo. EA on the other hand has completely lost me because of their little hissy fit over Origin (if that is the problem) but they are also blaming the Wii U's sales of Mass Effect 3 and Fifa 14. Now I loved Mass Effect 3 on Wii U, but many people passed because of the Trilogy only a bit more expensive on other platforms. Regarding Fifa on the other hand... it was 12 with gamepad support. I am really pleased with Ubisoft though because they kept their promise to Nintendo.



Yellowgerbil commented on Feature: Nintendo Direct on 17th May - The Big...:

To be honest I kind of wished that the extra character would have been Polterpup, but no matter, I really like Nabbit and our little ghost dog might appear somewhere else in the game. The direct satisfied me as I was worried that some of these titles might take up a bit of E3, now we basically have a clean slate to get new information on the new games and a couple of others like Yoshi's yarn. I think Ninty may have a few surprises up their sleeve...



Yellowgerbil commented on Nintendo Confirms Smash Bros., 3D Mario and Ma...:

Three epic games... In ONE direct... YES! I hope it is a long direct, about 45 minutes or longer, I am hoping for over an hour. One thing I am concerned about is if they are going to show anything else or if that is it. I hope they do a separate direct that will show other stuff. Maybe a large direct for Wii U and a smaller one for 3DS.
