Even if you don't download the Mercedes DLC you'll still have to download the update to take part in online races and see others use these cars there, right?
Meaning these will also be used by AI controlled characters in single player mode when you want to play online?



eviLaTtenDant commented on Super Smash Bros. For 3DS Will Feature A Music...:

I would love to see something like this in a global handheld app in the future.
It would be a huge nod towards game music if every track you've unlocked in a game went into a global player with some easy-to-use playlist creation, a random mode and the ability to delete these tracks if you don't like 'em.
For me that would definitely make it easier to justify paying the kinda high prices for games.

One option is a subscription service that entitles gamers to choose a set number of games per month at a reasonable discount — $10 a month (renewed each month, not an ongoing or annual commitment) could perhaps allow picks of three GBA games, three SNES, four NES or a mixture across platforms

I'd like something along these lines. That price wouldn't make me mind that i can't play the GBA on the 3DS too.
That wouldn't be much of a problem if cross-buy was in full effect though.
Another thing that makes it hard to justify paying that much for GBA games is that they're missing the multiplayer features for two-player games. Wouldn't that be the perfect showcase for the GamePad when it comes to games people already love a lot?



eviLaTtenDant commented on Review: XType Plus (Wii U eShop):

So this is just a "get the highest score possible", not a "you can actually beat it" type of game, right?
If so i'll probably wait for a discount since i rarely play these games more than once.
Could also have been nice if you could control your shots with the touchscreen and/or Wii Remote per pointer on screen.

I do think that Wii Sports Club and NES Remix deserve their places on the svelves of retailers.
People who aren't keeping up with gaming might see them in a store, be reminded of the good times they had with the NES or Wii Sports and become interested in a Wii U. These people might also be more interested in the 8 GB model of the Wii U and not too fond of getting an external HDD just to play one or two games.
I don't think this goes for a considerable amount of people but the concept isn't bad.



eviLaTtenDant commented on Review: Comic Workshop (3DS eShop):

One more title that would benefit from cross-play between the 3DS and Wii U. Who wouldn't like to draw on the bigger touchscreen of the GamePad when at home while also having a portable version for on the go.



eviLaTtenDant commented on 3DS System Update 8.1.0-18 is Now Live:

The last Wii U update wasn't too great since it took quite a while to install and i couldn't cancel it.
I guess i've got to pay more attention to these articles you thankfully provide so that next time i reckon in some more time beforehand.



eviLaTtenDant commented on Review: Siesta Fiesta (3DS eShop):

It sounds like this one doesn't have the vertical movement that just made me give up on the otherwise great DS game Nervous Brickdown.
In it there was this world where the ball isn't reflected by your paddle but you have to hit it to make it reach the blocks. This was one of the most frustrating experiences i ever had with a game.

If I could get The Letter for 1€ I’d probably check it out just to see if it really is as bad as everyone says. I know what I’m in for after reading the review after all.

What level of quality is acceptable for a game on a Nintendo home console?

While I’d love if everything you pay money for would be high quality that just will never happen. So as long as I don’t get the impression that the game is unplayable i’m fine with it being released.
What’s really ridiculous is that a game like Tennis costs the same as something like Castlevania though. Tennis doesn’t nearly have as much substance imo. That should be reflected in its price.
