cmk8 commented on Poll: Have Your Say On The GamePad's Role With...:

I won't be buying any as I already haveost of them and my lovely Micro to hand.
Disappointing but not surprising that Ninty is again too lazy to put in a basic multiplayer patch, and charges a lot.
Advance wars is great, but it's cheaper to get the superior DS version and play it portably on your 3ds (assuming have one.)



cmk8 commented on Advance Wars Bringing the Battle to the Wii U ...:

This will be great for a good many people and I'm pleased for them, but I won't be buying it.
2 main reasons. Firstly the price will likely be high, and secondly I still have the game and my beloved Game Boy Micro to hand.
However if you've never played this I strongly recommend getting it when it's in a sale!



cmk8 commented on Nintendo Download: 27th March (Europe):

Definitely getting Wario Kart, will be dowloading the new one so it'd be mad not to!
Am also getting the limited edition, but will put it away for 20 years in the hope it'll be worth something good.



cmk8 commented on Zen Studios DLC For Star Wars Pinball and Cast...:

£8.99 seems very steep for the pinball. Hope they're not as much of a nightmare to download as the Zen Pinball DLC was - took me ages to figure out how to get Plants vs Zombies!
Excited re Castlestorm - excellent game.



cmk8 commented on Nintendo Download: 16th January (Europe):

Nothing for me, Dr Luigi is far too expensive, and whilst I usually can't resist most discounts I think I'll manage this week.
For the first time in ages I might give my 360 a go, got Far Cry 2 and Bioshock 1 and 2 for about £10 on live.



cmk8 commented on Review: Mario Tennis (3DS eShop):

This was a great game but for me the key element was the use of the transfer pack, now that has been taken out and Nintendo were too lazy to put in a substitute I won't be dwnloading it.
Surely it's not too hard to put in a fix, something that thousands of kids could manage (and so one of Ninty's people could also do?)



cmk8 commented on Nintendo Download: 26th December and 2nd Janua...:

Having SMB3 on both formats is a fantastic opportunity for Ninty to put in the Sony policy of having a game on both formats if you buy on one. Shame Nintendo don't seem keen on doing that.
Not sure what format to get SMB3 on. Will prob be 3DS.
@DarkwingLz love your avatar!



cmk8 commented on Marty Reminds 3DS Users What Not To Do On Miiv...:

I was naughty and put my Twitter handle (@cmk8) on my description and was told my account was restricted and I should message Nintendo when I'd removed it to remove the restrictions. I haven't bothered.
I do think Nintendo are far too draconian on these things.



cmk8 commented on Poll: Is Nintendo's Wii U Advertising and Mark...:

I've never seen that many Nintendo adverts over the last thirty years, I think if they have enough good games then people will notice, word of mouth will kick in and the sales will come.
I'm not sure big advertising is the way to go, pump the money into games.



cmk8 commented on Nintendo Disables Swapnote's SpotPass Service ...:

This does seem a massive over-reaction. Not seen a mention of disabling streetpass which seems a bit inconsistent.
Haven't seen any mainstream media coverage of this yet - I'm sure some of our English dirt rags will drag up some horror stories.



cmk8 commented on Soapbox: The Wii U Virtual Console Needs to Fr...:

I'm disappointed most weeks with the VC announcements - who was waiting for Pinball, Golf or Urban Champion?
There does need to be some variety, and surely that can't be difficult to manage, Nintendo itself has access to a massive back catalogue.
Personally not fussed about GC on the VC, I have most games I want playable on my Wii, though I appreciate not everyone is like that.
I'd love to see some Amiga and Spectrum games, I can dream...



cmk8 commented on Nintendo Direct: Wii U And 3DS Broadcast Comin...:

@Samurai_Goroh yeah seriously, I have all of those games you've mentioned, the only GCN hame I didn't get that I'd like is fire emblem. I genuinely can't think of a game I'd buy for the GCN on eshop - especially at say £20.
Might be great for others such as yourself and I hope it happens for you, but personally not interested. To each their own!



cmk8 commented on New Wii U System Update Goes Live Across Europ...:

Surely it couldn't be that difficult to allow off TV Wii play to use the sticks and buttons on the gamepad? Having to use a separate controller for games like Wario Kart just make the gamepad seem like a glorified TV.
