Achoo commented on Nintendo of Europe Confirms Upcoming Game Boy ...:

My final gripe is with the release of Mario Advance 3, or should I say Mario World 2. Why release this? Why not just leave it with the SNES version, which is exactly the same but with better sound as far as I know. Give us exclusives at least, and not re-releases.
It made sense releasing it as a hand held back then for those that were not console players, but not now on the Wii U. Just release the SNES game and give us the better music, and save us a bit of money at the same time

I think it is obvious now why we are not getting n64 or gamecube games on Wii U though. The Wii U has not sold enough consoles for it to be worth the investment it would take to port those games over to it with gamepad functionality. For GBA, it is far cheaper to port them, so it doesn't matter so much if they do not sell in the dozens. Nintendo just figure that as n64 games are already available on the Wii VC, that will do for now.
So don't get your hopes up peeps!

Was looking forward to these, but i'm not paying that for them. Way overpriced for handheld games that don't even feature multiplayer. Even if they did it would be overpriced. SNES games are cheaper?!?

Achoo commented on Review: Mega Man X2 (Wii U eShop / Super Ninte...:

Was this released as the PAL version? Damn it!
Anyway, I think the review is a little off again. This one just doesn't have the same fun factor as the first. The first was perfectly balanced for you to only be able to play a certain level once you had the correct weapon for that level, otherwise the boss would maul. It made for fun exploring which weapon you had to use for which boss and made the non linear level selecting feel rewarding. X2 is not balanced in the same way. In X1 you would know when you found the right weapon for the right boss as the damage dealt would be significant, but in X2 this is not clear, so knowing what stage to tackle and in what order in harder to know, and this kills the fun factor a little bit.
Also, wrong about the graphics, which have had a upgrade by adding elements similar to Starfox in certain parts. The actual cartridge had to have an extra chip added into it for this.

@element187 Yes I know, but as people seemed to be blaming Nintendo, I thought I would just remark on them for the people that did not know of this. Becides, Namco Bandai are working for Nintendo as a subsidiary, so it is Nintendo and not Namco who's reputation is being damaged

For me, both Tennis and Bowling were 8s if not 9s. Obviously they are very different games and both will appeal to different audiences and so some will favour one over the other, but both are excellent.
Bowling has the 1up over tennis for the online, but if you want a smooth online tennis game, get a faster connection or don't bother, simple. I'm sure if it was possible for Nintendo to write the net code so that it was smooth for people with a 10mb connection or less, they would have. These people know what they are doing and are highly trained professionals, so people commenting on Nintendo's lack of net code skills really should not talk so much about things they know little about.

Could people who are having lag more than 1 out of 5 games please state what internet connection speed they are running and the ISP also if possible?
I think this might help clear up some of the obviously conflicting results people are experiencing

@CasuallyDressed na their not. Like I said before, I think that is probably you not using them correctly, or mastering the technique. It is possible to confuse the system, but if you can understand why it happens, then it is easy to avoid, and you can always just recentre them by pressing down on the d-pad anyway. So I have had no problems with them. Only time slightly dodgy for me is when hitting with the net player, but most the time it is probably just because reaction time needs to be faster at the net, so harder to be accurate if not quick enough

For anyone having trouble with the controls, you should note that this is probably your error and not the controls. It takes time to learn them properly, but they are accurate when used correctly. However, I sense as with most things, it is easier to blame controls than ourselves. Just remember though, a bad workman blames his tools..and then rage quits

For me, this is the game I have been waiting for. I has had me glued to my Wii U since release, and that is because it is a far more skill based game than the original, which failed to hold my attention for long. You get better at this over time, and a noob will get schooled by someone who has had a few days experience on them for sure

I do not think this review is accurate, as I rarely have been getting lag online. Maybe once in 10 are laggy. I have fiber optic 70mb connection and it is only laggy when opponents is slow. Maybe I am just lucky, who knows, but I don't think so. I have been playing people from all over Europe and still, no lag, in fact, when I do get a laggy game it is normally when connected to someone from the UK, probably with a 2mb connection or something. I am at level 5* so make of that what you will
