dizzy_boy commented on Former Nintendo Indie Champion Discusses the C...:

@quorthon I understand that Dan Adleman said demo's impact sales, and I pointed out that people aren't going to buy a game if they dislike a demo.
The opposite could have been true, if those games were better, then people would buy them based of the demo, but that hasn't happened.
The problem is that not providing demos artificially pushes up sales becauase people are buying games without knowing whether they like a game or not.
If people could return eShop games for refunds, I'm sure the end sale numbers for a heck of alot of eShop games would be completely different.
Nobody knows if they'll truely enjoy a game until they've played it, and a few minutes on a demo pretty much either sells a game or loses one.

dizzy_boy commented on Former Nintendo Indie Champion Discusses the C...:

With regards to demos, the whole point is that they're supposed to let people try before they buy. People aren't going to buy a game if they don't like what they've played in the demo. Is it really that hard to figure out.
The other thing to note is that Nintendo will only catch up with current gaming trends when the higher ups move on. By that time though gaming will have moved on again and Nintendo will still be far behind.

dizzy_boy commented on Club Nintendo to Close, With Replacement Loyal...:

I can see Nintendo doing something that's going to piss off a load of people.
I remember using loads of stars on Wii shop credit when it was first introduced on the European catalouge, only for Nintendo to put the SNES classic controller on the eShop about 3 months later. At that time, if I kept my stars I would have been just shy of getting one. It took me ages to save up enough to get it. I think of how I could of had two of them, one to use and one for show.
Oh well, the one will do, sitting next to the two Japanese import famicom classic controllers.

dizzy_boy commented on Nintendo Download: 15th January (Europe):

@WWammy all WiiU discounts for the eShop are the same regardless of being on the premium or basic models.
If you decide to get Tekken, I would suggest getting a portable hard drive because it's about 16 gig in size. The basic model doesn't have enough internal memory, even the premium model will find most of it's free space lost to this one game.
Tbh though, you can pick up a used copy of Tekken Tag 2 for the same price anyway.

@readyletsgo yes it's totally worth it, that's if you like fighting games though.
The WiiU edition has Nintendo charecter themed suits for most of the fighters, plus you can customize your fighters aswell.
Plus there's mushroom battle mode which is awesome in two player mode, if you have somebody over to play against. And there's a beach ball mode that returns from one of the earlier Tekken's. Online can be a bit quiet sometimes, which is a shame.
Just don't forget to wait 'til thursday for the £7 deal.

Dunno if anyone has seen this yet, but a samus amiibo is shown here that it apparently opens the gate at a russian train station. Dunno how true it is, because I cant see the gate actually open, but still, it's worth a look.

dizzy_boy commented on Sony Pictures Is In Negotiations With Nintendo...:

Considering that there's way more Mario games to draw inspiration from, there shouldn't be any reason to mess up this time.
I can't see the necessity to add too many characters as it wouldn't make a coherent story if they do. Besides, having plenty to choose from could lead to sequals if the film is done right.
Thing is, they could add references to other Nintendo games too if the snuck them in as background apperances. Things like Starwing fomations flying over head, Little Mac in a fight somebody's tv, billboards with 1080 snow board gear.

dizzy_boy commented on Rosalina & Luma amiibo Exclusive to Target in ...:

I can understand one, maybe two defected toys getting into circulation over the manufacturing life span, but this is getting silly with so many being reported so close together.
Nintendo needs to get in touch with the company making the amiibo and get them to sort things out.

dizzy_boy commented on Image & Form Reveals That Steam Powered Giraff...:

Hatworths singing is slowly improving, I really hated his voice when he first took over from The John.
Also, I wonder when Rabbit will finally settle on a look for her charecter. I know it's been a working progress for a whie, allthough the one in the steamworld vid is probably the best incarnation so far.
Also, ice cream monsters, I'm going hunting.

dizzy_boy commented on Mario Kart 8 Software Update and DLC Available...:

Something minor that I noticed while playing online, when you join a new session, the back button has been dissabled at the character select screen. You can only back out at the lobby, or in the middle of a race.
Also, there's no new stamps, can't complain too much really though, but it was something that I thought would be added.
Plus, I'm suprised that selecting 32 or 40 race isn't in the custom race option, it seems to be tacked on.

dizzy_boy commented on Mario Kart 8 Software Update and DLC Available...:

What the heck, Wario's gold mine got gimped. Some turns were quite tricky to get round if they weren't navigated right on Mario Kart Wii, which gave it a slight sense of danger. This version has been made easier because the track has been made slightly wider, and I'm sure there's a big dip missing just before the jump section in the second half of the race.
I was kind of expecting the Excite Bike track to be much better, but no.
Also, the trophies for both new GP's look identical except for the GP logo.

dizzy_boy commented on Wii U System Update 5.3.0 Adds amiibo Settings:

I suppose the best way Nintendo could work around the memory limitations of the amiibo would be to have stats saved in the game's saxe file. That way you can copy your data to an amiibo should you chose to use your stats on a friends WiiU. Then you can update the stats saved at home.

dizzy_boy commented on Video: Enjoy a Turbo Boost With This Mario Kar...:

I was thinking about how they would deal with the dlc tracks, atleast we now know.
The thing is, it'll split the community up quite a bit, especially when pack 2 arrives. They'll have to split it into those with no DLC, those who only own pack 1, those who only pack 2, and those who own both packs.
Also, isn't it frustrating to know the DLC is ready, yet we can't play it.

I could understand the original donkey kong games and mario bros, but super mario bros was spot on.
Having your thumb on the run button and wresting over the jump button made sense too, you have no need to lift your thumb to press jump simply because your thumb is there allready. It made for much more precise play.

dizzy_boy commented on Wii U Owner Proves That Rejecting The End-User...:

The only time Nintendo are gonig to block a WiiU or software is if you're running homebrew, pirate software, act like an idiot on miiverse, or use the internet browser for illegal use.
I have never heard of one instance where Nintendo have ever blocked an individual system, or it's software without good reason what so ever. There needs to specific reason before the take any action.
Since when has any update negatively impacted the way we play games on our consoles,?

The guy in the video didn't even read all of the way through EULA. He should have atleast Informed himself fully what he's disagreeing to before he even rang Nintendo to complain.
Besides, since when have Nintendo ever done anything to the OS of their consoles that nobody wanted, or impacted the way we use the console's. Imo, they've always improved the OS. And even when glitches have appeared, they've always fixed, and pretty quick at doing so.
If the guy in the video is gonna use the car analogy, then he wouldn't buy a car and get part way through learning how to drive before he sets off at 100mph down the road.

dizzy_boy commented on Ubisoft To Release Petz Beach And Petz Country...:

In a few months I would love to see sales comparisons between this games and the Assasins Creed games. It would be quite interesting to know which sold more in the few months.
I would bet that Ubi won't be complaining if this doesn't sell many copies, even though they whine about there other games not selling on Nintendo systems.
