Nintendo Life Editorial Director Damien McFerran can't get enough of the opening screen music for Mario Kart 8

As i read that Depeche Mode's "Just Can't Get Enough" was playing in the radio. :-O
If they released CD's with these soundtracks for 8 € each i'd probably get all of 'em.

To put things into perspective concerning that "female issue" it would be interesting to have statistics about how much they download/stream when it comes to other devices, music and movies. Also how much they're willing to pay for stuff like that.

Well, i have no access to the video at the time of writing and no experience with amiibo yet since i'm not a huge fan of Smash Bros. and don't want Link to be the lonely only one i've got. :-o
But i'm quite likely to get that one day, also the Mario Party 10 and the Fire Emblem ones that can be used in S.T.E.A.M. If MP10 and S.T.E.A.M. turn out to be good enough games that is. Heck, i might even get Kirby ones and those that work with Mario Kart 8.
When looking at these individually they're not terrible in terms of value for money imo. But i can't help and see the full sinkhole this would put in my wallet which makes me quite hesistant to start that whole crazy thing by buying even just the Link amiibo.
If there was some discount system that would reward you more the more you buy this decision would sure be easier.

What's also worrying is that we haven't heard of any way to back up your Smash Bros. or Mario Party 10 data yet. :-|

I'd love if all of 'em had some good use outside of Smash though since i really like the concept and the way most of 'em look. :-$

Flexible price points do sound awesome.

I'm not so sure about the "inviting friends" thing when it doesn't just simply mean "recruit someone to get his first or return to Nintendo home console(s), handheld(s) or visiting the eShop". Internet communities could easily make this a "get something for doing some paperwork" instead since you could always say you made someone buy something while his mind was set up long ago.

I just hope it won't be something like "get points for xx mentions of #nintendo in your twitter posts" or "write yyy Miiverse posts to get z points". These ain't beneficial to having good conversations imo.



alLabouTandroiD commented on Nintendo Download: 22nd January (Europe):

@Sean_Aaron I guess we'll have to wait 'til Thursday to be entirely sure. :-)

I also wonder if something like a "Theme Flatrate" would make sense for Nintendo. I mean i'm probably never going to download an individual Theme, but with the random feature of the 3DS i most likely wouldn't mind paying up to 15€ for a meaty pack of 'em per year.



alLabouTandroiD commented on Reaction: Nintendo Direct Went Crazy With Reve...:

Since I’ve already made a lengthy comment on the individual points in the summary I don’t really have a lot more to say. Anyway, here’s a few more thoughts.
I enjoyed the American Direct more than the European one because of the eShop titles and Reggae saying that the new3DS’s second analogue works with CPP games. I wouldn't have expected that.
I thought it would make more sense to have a Fire Emblem for the Wii U instead of the 3DS next or that Fire Emblem x SMT thingy.
Since there was such a heavy emphasis on amiibo it was especially strange to not hear anything about Yoshi’s Wooly World.



alLabouTandroiD commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 14t...:

Okay, let’s get down to business.

It would’ve made more sense to give the Wii U a new Fire Emblem imo. It was also strange to not hear anything about amiibo support for this game. Will that trading card game do anything on a console?
Puzzle & Dragons - The Mario version’s looking great but after having bought Pokémon Link: Battle! I don’t think I can go any higher than 25 bucks for this pack.
Pokémon Shuffe - Should be nice to have a turn based version of Pokémon Link: Battle!
Wii games - No Miiverse support, no buy. Good prices though.
amiibo - Now i really hope every Smash amiibo will get a good use outside of that game. Would also suck if I had bought a Bowser amiibo since I like the new version much more.
Captain Toad - Phew, I’m glad I somehow forgot this was out when I went game shopping some days ago. The amuibo bundle’s looking great. I hope it comes to Europe.
Mario Party 10 - I’ll probably have to get every amiibo that’s supported by this game. Thanks for robbing my wallet, Nintendo. It’s also worrying that there no mention of being able to back up your Smash amiibo data yet. :|
Project Treasure - not enough information yet.
Splatoon - Looks like it’s up to the big shooters on the BoxStations. I just wish they wouldn’t concentrate on the female characters so much. Huge thanks to EA too since they let Ninty play with their character designs.
Xenoblade X - The cinematic moments in the trailer looked glorious. I wonder if the Shulk amiibo will do anything in the game.
Mario Vs. Donkey Kong - Finally. Crossbuy and –play. Lets see how much this will cost in the eShop.
Miiverse's Chris and Erika - I didn’t even know Eric.
new 3DS - It’s great that CPP-games can be used with the C Stick. I’ll probably have to get the beautiful Monster Hunter 4 XL when I see it for 200 bucks somewhere.
Anime Channel - I liked the Kirby cartoon. Will maybe give Inazuma Eleven a chance.
S.T.E.A.M. - Looked best in the NoA presentation. Still not excited about it but if it’s good it might make me buy all the Fire Emblem amiibos. :-o
Ace Combat - It’s only an expanded version of the earlier 3DS game? :-(
Monster Hunter 4 - I dunno if I want to play the demo on my current 3DS or wait until I have a new3DS. I fear i might get too used to seemingly inferior control options.
Xenoblade 3D - What a bonus mode. I’m speechless...
Majora’s Mask 3D - Free camera control ftw.
Iron Fall - Wow, i can finally get a new generic shooter on my 3DS. I’m impressed …
Kirby - While the amiibo use isn’t amazing maybe it will still do as an excuse to get these three nice Kirby ones. :-$
Elliot Quest - looking good
Blek - looks interesting
Citizens of Earth - want!
Gunman Clive 2 - want want!
Moon - I may consider it if it comes to Europe. Nice that the soundtrack sounds a lot like Metroid Prime’s.
Sega 3D Classics - Gimme gimme gimme! More Ninty 3D Classics would be awesome too.
Etrian Dungeon - I prefer one man missions when it comes to 2D roguelikes. I wouldn’t mind this game changing that though.
Story of Seasons - I wonder how exactly multiplayer works there.
Fossil Fighters - Hello Spectrobes. Nice to see you again.
”Walking Block Game” - This is looking so inspired. Would be sad if this doesn’t ever come to the West.
One Piece - Since amiibos can be used this has to come to Eustralica, right? 
Mahjongg - I wonder what this means for Nintendo Network.
Rodea - Sadly doesn’t look like anything special yet.
Legend of Legacy - Hopefully this will make it to the West.
Theatrhythm Dragon Quest - Would be an insta-buy if it was released here.
Atelier Rorona - Doesn’t this series have like a million games already?
Project Mirai - Nice music there, blue haired cuteness ... Dang, I want to know more about this game.
Rhythm Heaven - Please continue bringing that series to the west, Nintendo.



alLabouTandroiD commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

The DS was kind of a revolution with its touch-screen. I don't think they have something similar up their sleeves for smartphones.
It wouldn't be as easy as putting it on the market and watching it sell like hotcakes imo.

Personally i just want my smartphone to take good pictures and have the ability to call or text someone if i need to.
In Nintendo's case i don't think it would make sense to have exclusive smartphone-games for their phone, so i'm not interested.



alLabouTandroiD commented on Review: Picross e5 (3DS eShop):

I'll probably download it these days in the hope that i get farther than in e3 and e4. For some reason i've started to have problems in these where i could easily complete every other Picross game i got before.
Amen to that, @Rob_mc_1 !



alLabouTandroiD commented on Region-Locking May Be a Thing of the Past Soon...:

I can only speak for myself but if i know a certain game is coming to Europe one day i'll probably always wait for that version. If there will be a boxed version in Europe too that is.
If there's only about 1% of a chance i'll import.
I can't see any harm done to anyone there.

And if they really unlock it'd be great if you could play American Wii games on your Wii U in Wii Mode.
