antdickens commented on Nintendo's Implementation of Cross-Buy is Surp...:

I think those thinking that this is "abuse" of the system are missing the point a little bit. Even the concept of "cross-buy" is slightly archaic, if Nintendo had a proper account system (ala Apple ID), it would be more common place for content to work across multiple devices (albeit there are different platforms here).

As this only works for 3DS' with a NNID that is tied to the Wii U system there is little room for abuse, apart from siblings all getting a copy of the game - which should be seen as a good thing (how would you choose which 1 3DS it should appear on?). It's highly unlikely a 'friend' would have their 3DS/NNID linked to another person's Wii U as they wouldn't be able to use that NNID with their own Wii U.

This is good news, really.



antdickens commented on Give Someone The Gift Of Nintendo This Christmas:

Hello! Just to let everyone know that we selected a very deserving winner for our competition, we decided not to disclose information about the circumstances of the winning family out of respect for their situation.

We hope their family is enjoying the Wii U and thank everyone for entering, it was great to hear such Christmas spirit within our readers. We'll hopefully do something similar again this year and maybe on a bigger scale.

@Zapkido sure, and in my opinion the following zelda haven't bettered it as a package. If anything I have battles that LTTP is the best of all - so far - but always hard to compare games from different generations. I think we're all on the same page, just have different favourites :)

@Kaze_Memaryu you didn't mention anything about it being compared to other Zelda games... and I would agree that 'won't ever be as good as...' is a pointless statement. I believe in judging games for their time and what else was available at the time, so saying its not good by today's standards is somewhat irrelevant. I strongly hope Nintendo can release a Zelda game that takes it crown :) Zelda Wii U certainly has a chance...
