Male, 31, United Kingdom
I'm a web developer, responsible for sites such as Nintendo Life, Push Square and Pure Xbox. I should really play more games...

@Shiryu done sir!
@Shiryu more likely user error want me to change that for you?

@OneBagTravel I see what you did there ;D

@Nintenjoe64 it sounds like fate is on your side!
antdickens commented on Nintendo 64x64: Diddy Kong Racing:
@GunkFace it got pretty fast towards the end, especially if you nailed all the speed boosts. I thought it was the best kart game of its generation - much better than MK64 for me.
antdickens commented on Nintendo 64x64: Bomberman 64:
@Kirk we actually didn't include screenshots/videos on purpose, we wanted to see what people remember about the games
antdickens commented on Nintendo 64x64: Body Harvest:
@DiscoGentleman personal opinions on these pieces, not official NL reviews

Why doesn't Luigi have a mustache?
antdickens commented on UK And Australian Pricing For Nintendo's Amiib...:
I knew they would be more than £10 - I think £9.99 would of been better... £10.99 will cause some people to buy less of them... oh well!
antdickens commented on Super Mario 64:
@dinosauryoshi thanks and love the avatar
antdickens commented on Project: Nintendo 64x64:
@baba_944 watch this space, it might appear in one of the days
@baba_944 not quite sure what you mean... you can submit your own review for the game here.
@baba_944 just visit the game review page and submit it!
@ValiantPixel great start, thanks for sharing!
antdickens commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against Re...:
Really glad to see this has turned into a very sensible discussion, good job everyone really interesting to hear all your views.
It's a huge topic, I think in lots of ways if Nintendo was addressing the "itch" of these fans (myself included) with a better service for playing older games these kinds of devices wouldn't exist. The fact they exist is down to demand of fans wanting to relive all these old games with modern convenience. The best way for Nintendo tackle this would be to get more games on VC and much faster, obviously which isn't exactly easy.
If, like me, you spent £1000s on games the first time around, getting a flash-cart now isn't going to ruin Nintendo, if anything its going to make you a more loyal player long term.

@Mr_Rawky how many points?
Good luck guys!
@Grumblevolcano we have some provisions for people unable to attend the final, we'll basically select a few reverses from each heat and contact them in order!
antdickens commented on Feature: Nintendo's Natural Home at HYPER Japa...:
@Cinaclov we'll be posting a separate article about the other things at the show in the next couple of days
@Captain-Falcon yeah, we were there too! I don't remember 2013 being too bad, it was quite spaced out... 2012 was very cramped though.
antdickens commented on Art: Controller Evolution Photo Series Hammers...:
We should get James to correct his timeline.
antdickens commented on Mario Kart 8 Update & DLC Scheduled for 27th A...:
@mch it means the games communication with the servers... ie "communication error" fixes
@PinkSpider I wouldn't rule out paid-for DLC packs in the future though... additional cups etc.
@Ralek85 rearview on the gamepad, that would be neat!
@outburst not until they fix battle mode!
I think @ThomasBW84 will be very happy about the map - he never stops banging on about it
antdickens commented on Nintendo Life Set To Host Mario Kart 8 Tournam...:
@ModestFan93 please make your comments to Nintendo of America
@123akis you'll get four attempts
antdickens commented on Nintendo Network Maintenance Scheduled For Jus...:
@Spoony_Tech they've not announced it yet, hopefully it gets a Teen rating... that's the only reason I can see for the late broadcast.
@BertoFlyingFox I think its because Hyrule Warriors is getting a Mature rating that they're showing it later in the day...
@Hydrosine maybe next time!
@Grumblevolcano we'll make a further announcement on that once everything is confirmed for the final
@Sandstorm the competition starts online with four heats, so you don't need to be attending the show. Nintendo will provide travel & accommodation if you reach the finals!
Yep, you never know!
antdickens commented on Site News: We're Doing a Reddit AMA Today, So ...:
I hope there are some interesting questions... get thinking!
antdickens commented on Play & Win: Join the UK Mario Kart 8 Tournamen...:
Thanks for taking part guys, some amazing racing tonight!
@Portal_King I don't think that's cheating - the game sometimes syncs up data after you've finished and corrects the positions!
Go easy on me!
Naturally I'm going to win all of the races. Honest.
antdickens commented on Play & Win: Join The Grid for The UK Mario Kar...:
@Jazzer94 I don't think that would work... you could then get races with only 3-4 people and earn more points. Need to at least ensure 12 racers. Hard CPU isn't exactly easy to win!
@PvtOttobot we've reduced the time from 6 hours to 4 hours, which should force some more groups rather than any standalone CPU play. We can't police that

@Squashy @thomasbw84 hmm, I think it does have air con, but it's not like its super chilled in there, it wasn't uncomfortably hot at all though, earls court is huge!
@Grumblevolcano we'll see what happens, maybe we'll need a race off!
@Grumblevolcano we're going to go by want the game has in the ranking... I'm not sure it does ties?
@Jenraux the eShop credit will only work on UK systems, so even if someone did use a proxy(and the lag that would introduce!) they wouldn't find the prize very useful
@benptooey my word, I can't believe no-one spotted that - our bad! Thanks!
