C-Olimar commented on Nintendo Provides Some Context to 2013's Tomod...:

I'm really looking forward to this game, despite not being able to gain the full experience from it. I want to see how the various Mii versions of my friends and family act around each other in a natural way.
My friend (and former crush, alas) is going out with a girl so it's a bit disappointing that they won't be to be together in game.

I'm sick of religious bigotry but I think everything that needs to be said has been said. I support gay marriage. Homosexuality is not a choice - and even if it was, we are all free to make that choice; government should not be influenced by religion.
I don't blame Nintendo for not including same-sex marriage. Their hands are tied.



C-Olimar commented on Kid Icarus AR Cards & Toad Folders With Bookma...:

I really, really love the AR cards, but they were ridiculously overpriced in the UK (£1.50 for 6? Are you serious Nintendo?) so I only ever got free or Club Nintendo ones.

I really think Nintendo missed an opportunity by not releasing an eShop app for AR battles. They severely cut their potential audience by limiting the cards' functionality to owners of the game.

Anyway, I hope these come back to the EU catalogue as well :)

@Dreamz No, it isn't. It's 16 new tracks and 16 tracks from old MK games updated with new features. So there are 32 unique tracks in total.

Other than Dry Dry desert I'm not crazy about the retro track choices. However, the new tracks look phenomenal, I can't wait for this game!



C-Olimar commented on Masahiro Sakurai Takes Us Through the Multifac...:

Definitely getting both versions. I'm a little worried that the 3DS online has a chance of being laggy due to the system's weak processor. Maybe Sakurai will turn the 3D off? That's what happened with Tekken 3DS... (also a Namco game!)



C-Olimar commented on Feature: A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and...:

The screenshots seem to be ramping up to me! Seems to be a reveal every day. Hopefully we get a new character soon - and hopefully it's a newcomer! I think Yoshi will be confirmed next though. Probably in this week's Nintendo Direct...



C-Olimar commented on Twitch Claims Victory in Pokémon Crystal:

This is a great way of getting people interested in Pokemon games. If Nintendo were clever they'd release Red and Blue on Virtual Console ASAP.

But this is nintendo. So we'll probably get Ice Hockey or something :/



C-Olimar commented on Feature: Lifting the Curtain on Game Ratings a...:

I know it's hard, I just get jealous when yanks get to play cool games like ATV and I don't! Having said that, I do think it's better for a publisher to release a game when it's ready in America than delay it to coincide with the European release.



C-Olimar commented on Former Criterion Boss Alex Ward Laments Issues...:

Totally understand where he's coming from. However, I don't think he really listened to the other guy's argument when he said some games sell better on Wii U and 3DS than bigger platforms such as steam. If he's doing indie games, Nintendo platforms should be on his radar.
