Great week IMHO. The Wii U VC makes up for much. Won't get anything now myself, both Mad Max and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will arrive by mail tomorrow. Will get Startropics later probably.

@Arckadius You meant North Americola, right?



anders190 commented on Soapbox: It's A Tragedy That Rare Replay Isn't...:

Yeah you are right. That saddly would be what probably would've happened. Sure, theres both the Super Mario 25 year anniversary box and that Kirby box which is kinda similar but it hasn't happened more than that.

One could always hope though.



anders190 commented on Soapbox: It's A Tragedy That Rare Replay Isn't...:

I actually got lucky and got this collection delivered by mail this Friday. It's a nice collection of games and they mostly run fine on the Xbox One (except for Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts which performance is really bad, I'm hoping for a patch or something).

Growing up with mostly Nintendo and Rares games it's sad to see so many of the Nintendo-era games not peing part of the collection. I woulf love if Nintendo, Microsoft and Rare could make a deal too develop a Rare Replay-version for Wii U, or perhaps NX, where Donkey Kong and the other titles would be collected.

I would love to see more collections with the same quality and value as Rare Replay. It's a gem.



anders190 commented on Humble Nindie Bundle Allows Wii U and 3DS eSho...:

While being Swedish this doesn't work for me but actually checking in to see whats new on Humble Bundle earlier in the evening was... wierd. A good wierd but totally unexpected.

I do hope that isn't the last time anything like this happens and maybe we in Europe will be covered next time around.



anders190 commented on Poll: Is It Time For a Fresh Alternative to th...:

More games and better prices, that's my only real complaints today. I kind of expected having a lot more games to choose from by this time.

It's also wierd, for a Ambassador participant, to not have seen a single GBA title for the 3DS. I love and cherish the games I got for mine but not getting anything else is a bit of a turn off. I certainly expected more.

All of the SNES JRPGs that I have too boot into Wii-mode to play for example.



anders190 commented on Donkey Kong Land Rated And Ready For North Ame...:

I had this for my Game Boy in the 90's. The only thing about it that I still remember is those flying pigs and how hard it was to actually see what happened on the display. Especially when moving around.

Some more Rare VC would be appreciated though.



anders190 commented on Weirdness: April Fools Comes Early As Amazon F...:

I don't see why it should be that impossible for a second ZombiU-title. It doesn't matter if the first one sold badly, it might work better now. The first game was great, the consumers just plainly sucked.

I would have loved to see it on at least PC too if so.



anders190 commented on Mario Kart 8 Still Competing in Nordic Region ...:

I'm from Sweden myself and can say there has not been much interest in Tomodachi Life here. As fas I know it hasn't even been advertised either.

Many younger gamers (those who started in the Halo-generation) probably just play Xbox or Playstations anyway. And PC too of course. Nintendos position has weakened somewhat over the years. Kind of what the charts in the article also points to.

I'm not sure how Mario Kart 8 is selling but I think it's quite good actually. Haven't seen any numbers for it though.

EDIT: Got a digital version of Mario Kart 8 right after release myself. I won't be getting Tomodachi Life though, get the price down under 100 SEK/10 euro and I might think about it.



anders190 commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

Too hard to choose one favourite. I will make it easier for me and single out the only game on the list that I actually don't like. Zelda II: The Adventures of Link. Didn't like it when I tried it in the early 90's. Haven't enjoyed it later either.

Considering that Zelda III: A Link to the Past was the first game in the series that really got me hooked I have to vote for it in the end. Top notch series, most/all of the games have been really awesome for me.



anders190 commented on Mario Kart 8 Free Wii U Game Promotion Extende...:

As a Swede, this made me more interesting in getting MK8 earlier. Not sure what game I would choose, I already got all of those that interest me but a digital copy of New Super Mario Bros U wouldn't hurt.

This was really well done by all involved. I'm also hoping for a return of Club Nintendo. If not for each country, perhaps a Club Nintendo Scandinavia instead?



anders190 commented on Ubisoft Has Dispatched 73 Million Assassin's C...:

I for one actually think that the Far Cry-series just have gotten better since Ubisoft took over. Far Cry 3 and Blood Dragon being the best ones. Far Cry 2 and the portrayal of the horrors happening in parts of Africa (and probably being the only game that has done it) deserves a mention too. The first Far Cry was unbelievable beautiful ten years ago but hasn't aged too well IMHO.

Also, I think that the first Far Cry fit better with the Crysis-series than Far Cry. Considering the contents and themes of the series.

Most Rayman-games haven't been exactly good. Rayman Origins and Legends being the better of them obviously.



anders190 commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

Mostly Battlefield 4 on PC. I will also try to play some Final Fantasy X on the Vita as well as Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Super Mario 3D World, Advance Wars and/or Rayman Legends on the Wii U. Some Crysis 3, Batman: Akham City and Assassins Creed 4 on PC would also be nice but I think I have enough games going on at the moment.



anders190 commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd April (Europe):

Advance Wars and Mario & Luigi for me. I hope there will be some kind of crossbuy support coming soon enough, would like to have those on my 3DS as well as the Ambassador games on my Wii U.



anders190 commented on Nicalis Boss Tyrone Rodriguez Thinks The Wii U...:

Who..? Is this guy supposed to be well known or something?

The only thing that I can remotely agree with is the resolution on the Gamepad. What he doesn't seem to realise is that the cost probably would be even higher. Be happy that someone actually tried to innovate this generation.



anders190 commented on Latest PS4 Sales Figures Take it Past Wii U Li...:

What I don't get is what games sell the consoles? It has nothing as far as I have seen. The two games that interest me, Battlefield 4 and Assassins Creed 4, is playable on PC as well.

I'm still kinda hoping of an increase of Wii U sales when consumers realise that PS4 (and Xbox One) lacks games.



anders190 commented on Picross e4 Is Coming To Western 3DS eShops Thi...:

If there is one game that I would love to see from Nintendo on a smart phone, its Picross. Would probably fit perfectly too.

I'm not sure if I ever bought Picross e3 but the first two I have both owned and played. The pricing has been good on the previous ones but I still would love to see more content in these releases.



anders190 commented on Soapbox: Even With The Arrival Of PS4 And Xbox...:

Just looking at launch titles, Wii U beats both PS4 and Xbox One. In one year things might look different though. Way too early to say if any of these consoles can be considered a success.

Yes, I do know that both PS4 and Xbox One sold incredibly well but that mostly points out the fact that both MS and Sony's hype really worked. The months/years ahead will undoubtedly be easier for Sony and MS though.



anders190 commented on Super Mario 3D World Reaches Top Spot On Amazo...:

It's always about the games. Really great if this will be the starting point for consumers and developers to see Wii U for what it really is, a great console that deserves so much better.

I will probably get this for myself soon enough. I'm quite busy with both BF4 on PC and Zelda: Wind Waker HD at the moment.



anders190 commented on Nintendo of Europe Launches Free Super Mario 3...:

Yeah, it's wierd that our country isn't part of the Club Nintendo. While growing up in the 90's, there actually was a Club Nintendo in Sweden too. It's extra irritating to se those club nintendo papers in the game boxes and not being able to use them.



anders190 commented on Nintendo Download: 21st November (Europe):

Damn, read that list like Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past would be released on the 3DS this week. Would have loved a VC-release of that one.

Rayman Legends is a great buy though, I myself will probably try the Sonic: Lost Worlds demo.



anders190 commented on Poll: As the PS4 Arrives, What Do You Think of...:

The Wii U should do pretty well now. It's a year ahead and quite a lot of games have already been released to it and will come out soon.

PS4 has always been overhyped and the launch titles haven't exactly scored well either. Things will obviously get better in the months and years ahead but I actually think that Wii U should do better at christmas than the PS4. Time will tell, as usual.



anders190 commented on Nintendo Comes Up Empty at the Golden Joystick...:

The only one of those I agree with is Game of the Year as GTA 5. Far Cry 3 as best gaming moment does feel acceptable but I thought that the tower climb in Tomb Raider was better of those that was available.

AC3: Liberation as best hand held game must surely be a joke?



anders190 commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd October (Europe):

Finally Wind Waker arrives! Not too sure about the price though, might need to wait for a lower price. I want a digital copy of this game so the cheaper retail won't be an option sadly.



anders190 commented on Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams Director Pleased...:

It's good that they feel pleased with their sales already.

I bought it for PC last year and didn't like it myself so I won't get this either. Tried it again this summer but still disliked it. Giana Sisters for the Nintendo DS was really great though.



anders190 commented on Nintendo Download: 5th September (Europe):

Nice seeing another JRPG, even though I would have prefered Wii U-versions of Final Fantasy VI, Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, Super Mario RPG or Terranigma. Especially Terranigma since it never was released on the Wii shop.

I will pick up Breath of Fire II if/when the price get lowered. I don't remember buying it on the Wii so it will probably be full price.



anders190 commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2013 - Aut...:

I will be getting Zelda: Wind Waker HD, Super Mario 3D World, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and maybe Sonic: Lost Worlds. I will buy Assassins Creed 4 and Watch Dogs too but on the PC instead. The Assassins Creed-games have always been awesome with AMD Eyefinity and it's too good to pass up on for me.
