cmk8 commented on Review: Super Mario 3D World (Wii U):
Fantastic timing Nintendo!
cmk8 commented on StreetPass Relay Point Improvements and Free S...:
Excellent news, I always get a few wandering round Debehams, Argos, Costa and McDonalds in Walsall, might get a few more now!
cmk8 commented on Long Awaited YouTube Application Coming To 3DS...:
I'm really glad they're updating the WiiU version with some obvious upgrades, good to see Nintendo hadn't just moved on.Not sure I'll really use the 3DS app.
cmk8 commented on Get Tactical With Nintendo Pocket Football Clu...:
I've long wanted a football management sim on the 3DS (a remake of Championship Manager 93 would have done!), I really hope this isn't rubbish.
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 Feature: Where Is Your Wii Balance Board?:
Mine's under the sofa. Probably the best workout it ever gave me was when I lugged it home that first day...
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 Download: 24th October (Europe):
Nothing for me this week, not even Wario's woods!Still waiting in vain hope for some quality VC titles.
cmk8 commented on GamePad High Capacity Battery Available Now in...:
Might get one, will wait to see how easy it is to install though, I'm very bad at DIY...
cmk8 commented on Nintendo UK Launches Online Retail Store:
Had a quick look, was hoping for some stuff that might be limited edition and unique to their shop. Maybe in the future.How about a Wario wiimote!?
cmk8 commented on Mario and Luigi Wii Remote Plus Controllers Ju...:
They look quite cool, but a Wario one would obviously be the best!!
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.
cmk8 commented on Improved StreetPass and Nintendo Zones Coming ...:
Sounds good, in England too please!!
Would like to see the system update and Pokemon Trading Card Game on the VC please.Not interested in GC VC (have the games for my Wii and suspect they'd be very expensive)
cmk8 commented on Miyamoto: Retro Studios is High on The List of...:
Always the way: someone talks about a game and some interpret it as there's a new game on the way and others interpret as the opposite!
cmk8 commented on Poll: Would You Buy Grand Theft Auto V On Wii U?:
I haven't really enjoyed a GTA game since Vice City, but would give this a go if it were on Wii U.
cmk8 commented on Nintendo UK Announces National StreetPass Day:
Sounds really good, shame there's not more for the Midlands mentioned above.The relays have been excellent, but I'm all for more organised events like this.
cmk8 commented on Nintendo Download: 19th September (Europe):
Ooh a Chasing Aurora discount, how exciting <end sarcasm>.Please can I get GBC Pokemon Trading Card game on 3DS VC now?
cmk8 commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:
Will be dipping into Blocco to keep my Animal Crossing town up to scratch, and played a lot of the Streetpass games having got 9 passes this morning round Walsall.
cmk8 commented on Review: TNT Racers - Nitro Machines Edition (W...:
Thanks for the eshop reviews, it's what first brought me to the site and I always find them useful.
cmk8 commented on Feature: Great Nintendo 64 Multiplayer Games Y...:
Snowboard Kids was ace, shame the DS version wasn't so good.My mates and I also spent a lot of time on Bust a Move 64, ISS 64 and FZero X.
cmk8 commented on TimeSplitters Rewind "A Possibility" On Wii U,...:
I loved Timesplitters and would definitely get a decent new version.In terms of controls etc, just a standard customisable control scheme so we could do off screen play would be fine for me,
cmk8 commented on StreetPass Relay Issues Reported in North America:
I live in England and the passes do seem to have dropped off. I try Costa, McDonalds and Argos in Walsall occasionally. I think it might be because people (like me sometimes) do a circuit of the hotspots so drop off their pass data at multiple stations.
cmk8 commented on Interview: Denis Dyack on Shadow of the Eterna...:
Interesting the way the fact they have less money donated and a lot more comments than others is put forward as a positive, I wouldn't have thought it was.
cmk8 commented on StreetPassUK Launches Tag-Finding Website:
Pleased to see a Birmingham one, shame doesn't seem to be much doing.
cmk8 commented on New Nintendo Direct Coming August 7th, Focus I...:
This should be useful to remind me what is coming out, because I struggled to name more than about 2 Wii U titles for this year last time I thought about it.Hope it focusses on stuff out in the next few months, Smash Bros will be good but I'm more interested in imminent games.
cmk8 commented on Review: Spelunker (3DS eShop / NES):
Any ideas why this has been released?
cmk8 commented on Time: Nintendo Is "Stumped" By The Wii U GameP...:
I think Time have missed the point that, usually, Wii U games can have off-TV play (eg Mario) or have unique essential gamepad features (eg Zombii U) and not both. I for one would rather have the former, and so am pleased there aren't essential gamepad features.
cmk8 commented on Feature: The Big E3 Nintendo Direct Round-up:
I suspect, like last year, there will be a blockbusting Nintendo Direct in a month or so - showing all of the goodies that we can get before the other consoles are released.
cmk8 commented on Feature: Our Top 10 3DS Games - Summer 2013:
Wario Kart for me, though the top 3 games I've played the most on my 3DS are DS games (Pokemon White 2 and Black, FFTA.)
cmk8 commented on Chasing Aurora Receives Permanent Price Reduct...:
But having "temporary" reductions on this every other week has been a default for Nintendo, what will they do now?
cmk8 commented on Talking Point: Wii U vs Xbox One - Online Requ...:
I'm not that bothered by this either, I buy a lot of used games as I think prices are too high but it does bother me that the makers don't see that money.I never sell games nor lend them out.Many game companies seem to be struggling so this should help - downloadable demos can get round many of the rental issue. Hopefully this will help new game prices fall so customers won't be too inconvenienced (might be bit too optimistic there!)
cmk8 commented on Nintendo Download: 30th May (Europe):
With Aurora getting a permanent discount what will Ninty do from now on? Discounting that game every other week seemed to their e-shop fall back.Maybe some new games will come out...
cmk8 commented on Review: Swords & Soldiers 3D (3DS eShop):
Nooooo, I really wanted this game and it looks like it's been ruined for the handheld. It's Settlers all over again...
cmk8 commented on Nintendo Download: 9th May 2013 (Europe):
Nothing for me this week, will get a couple of them when they go on sale, happy to wait until then as have plenty to keep me occupied at the moment!How many times has Chasing Aurora had a "temporary" discount?
cmk8 commented on Talking Point: It's Time for a 3DS Storage Upg...:
I bought a class 10 32gb as I thought the 3ds didn't like 64gb. 32gb is plenty, I might download Animal Crossing but otherwise I still prefer carts, and eshop games aren't too big.
cmk8 commented on New Wii U Virtual Console Titles Confirmed By ...:
I voted not interested, already have most of these games in easily accessible form, the only ones I'd play again are Mario (have on the 3ds) and Zelda (have the GBA version.)
cmk8 commented on Talking Point: Fire Emblem: Awakening - The Bi...:
Mine got delivered today, and I'll be playing casual. I just don't have the time to play through "properly", I refuse to lose characters so end up resetting a lot and it takes ages. My 2 year old daughter and my work just won't let me play for that long!
cmk8 commented on Out Today: LEGO City: Undercover And Luigi's M...:
I'd get them, if there was any chance of having the time to play them! (violins please
cmk8 commented on Talking Point: The Download or Disc Dilemma:
Losing stuff forever is the big worry for me - if my 3DS is lost, corrupted, stolen etc then I'd worry about losing all of the games I'd downloaded.Always feel a bit safer with a physical copy, though that may not be justified.
cmk8 commented on More Capcom-Disney Games Could Be Remade if Du...:
"If Duck Tales is successful"Given the attention this awesome news has got I don't think that's in doubt!
cmk8 commented on Ubisoft Wii U Titles Receive eShop Price Cuts ...:
Afraid not too interested in any of those, do feel as though I should support these sales, might get AC3...
cmk8 commented on The European Version Of F-Zero On Wii U Virtua...:
I don't think we should be too grateful / overjoyed about this. The games should be in 60hz, I fear it's a sneaky marketing ploy by Ninty to get some love.For example we're pleased with any online they give us, but it should be the norm, not the exception!
cmk8 commented on Feature: The Big Valentines Nintendo Direct Su...:
I thought it was pretty good, the one thing I was hoping for was a Streetpass update - new pictures, a new quest etc.Pokemon Trading Card GBC wouldn't go amiss either.
cmk8 commented on Nintendo Set For Yearly High In Download Sales:
I love POS cards, I always ask for a few for my birthday and Xmas, saves me spending money in the long run, and lets me pick the games.
cmk8 commented on Review: 35 Junior Games (3DS eShop):
Might be tempted to get this for Freecell, haven't been able to find that for the DS anywhere else.Anyone know if it's any good?
cmk8 commented on Don't Worry, There's A Cavalcade Of Fan-Favori...:
Looking forward to Animal Crossing on the 3DS and the new Wario Kart on the Wii U.
cmk8 commented on Nintendo Download: 24th January 2013 (Europe):
Wow! Finally a good week, will be getting Picross for my wife and Switch Force for me (never can resist a sale!)
