fredcaster commented on Without iOS Support Nintendo "Doesn’t Reach ...:

Apple have also been on the ball by positioning themselves as an educational tool. Many schools in the UK have them in classrooms. Parents are happy to buy them to help their child's education. It educates, it plays games, it's portable. Then, if the child wants a Ds of some sort, a parent may well be reluctant since, it appears, the ipad can do it all already.



fredcaster commented on Atari Founder Nolan Bushnell Claims Nintendo "...:

@Fazermint "Nintendo always had a soft spot for young people - they sort of did the 12-and-under pretty well, and the other guys did the 12-and-over."
Utter nonsense. This statement is not based on actual facts. I'm pretty sure half (or more) of Nintendo owners are 12+

Be careful when criticizing a comment for not being based on actual facts and then giving an opinion which isn't based on actual facts.



fredcaster commented on Review: Jet Force Gemini (Nintendo 64):

I completed this game. I used a walkthrough for pretty much the whole thing because it is huge. That last boss had me demented. So hard (but not as annoying or unfair as DK64 final boss turning invisible). The Floyd bits can be difficult to do quickly enough but the Jeff and Barry arcade is fun.
I'd agree that a 7 is about right.



fredcaster commented on 3DS UK Success in 2013 Offset by Abysmal Wii U...:

At the moment I feel the Wiiu is locked into a vicious circle. Reports like this one are not going to boost sales, which will possibly cause more reports like this. That, in turn, will not boost sales, which at some point will be reported. People buy consoles for games. They need 3rd party support urgently. Get a FIFA update, anything to show that games are on the way.



fredcaster commented on Japanese Wii U eShop Promotion Undercuts Retai...:

Not for me. Not until they sort out the fact that it is tied to your system and not to an account. I've downloaded for my dsi and I hate the thought that if the machine gets stolen or breaks then that's it, the games are gone. Nintendo are out of date with this whole approach and need to be flexible. I don't understand why they are so against using the same model as other companies which offer digital downloads.
