gblock commented on Video: Toy Pizza Take a Look at Tamashii Natio...:

so I go to said gaming shop to play magic with some friends tonight and the manager says my stuff is in!!!

pricey ($65 for all three - the mario figure and the two packs) but it was well worth it. Best Mario figure ever!

Just got mine about an hour ago at Walmart in WV...played through two cups in it! I'd be playing now, but I gotta work in the morning, but I have aaaaaaaaallllll weekend to tear up some MK8 :-D

If someone has gold and doesn't want anything on there, I'll offer $10 shipped via paypal (when it arrives) for the calendar (could always use something video game related for my desk at work next year, PM me

@squashie you guys have KICK ASS rewards though. I'd take the Super Famicom Classic Controller that you all have any day of the f'n week over this lineup.

edit: damn, yaw must not have had it very long, but at least you had that option at one point

That said I got the CD....anyone wanna trade :D



gblock commented on Impressions: Multiplayer is a Big Deal in Nint...:

This "local multiplayer" experience is why arcade manufacturers of old ought to unite under this console and do what Microsoft and whoever the hell that company was that did it failed to do, Game Room, with REAL arcade games (not crappy Atari 2600 and Colecovision ports), the "virtual" arcade w/ cabinet representations, etc. There was nothing more social than the arcade scene in it's heyday. And Nintendo could kick it off with their biggest arcade title, Donkey Kong!



gblock commented on Review: Mario Bros. (Wii U eShop / NES):

I could see them doing a NSMBWii-style graphically upgraded version w/ 4 player multiplayer support (Mario, Luigi, Peach and Toad) and do it as a couple level minigame in a future release of Mario Party (or unlockable, or even a downloadable game or something) would be neat. That being said, I like the arcade version.



gblock commented on Video: You'll Wish You Could Play Tetris As We...:

full version is actually available on the DVD or as a downloadable extra with the purchase of the DRM free version of the documentary. It's insane how good this man was/is at Tetris. Ecstasy of Order is well worth picking up!



gblock commented on Recent Taiko Drum Master Games Ship Over 500,0...:

I've "acquired" all 5 on the Wii (had the two that were on DS when I had one as well). Just need to get a drum for the wii to play them the way they're meant to be played :-(

Never understood why they never localized these to the US



gblock commented on Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D's Beastly Block...:

got the retail version pre-ordered at GS, only downloadable retail game I have is Mario 3D Land and that's only because of the free game promotion through Club Nintendo (recently upgraded to a 3DSXL and got a Club Nintendo code from the Pokemon game that you could register to get the free game offer.



gblock commented on Rejoice, Mario Kart Wii U Is Coming This Year:

Instead of rushing out the next full game in the series, they ought to do Mario Kart Arcade GP 1(and 2) as a Wiiware release (with upto 8 player online multi - the same # of cabinets that could be hooked up together in the arcade) then focus on MKU (or 8, whatever) by having a legacy mode with all the past courses from SNES, N64, GBA and GC.



gblock commented on F-Zero AX Found Hidden In GameCube F-Zero GX:

If only Nintendo would put the Mario Kart Arcade game(s) (except the new one that's coming out in Japan in the next couple months) on the next Mario Kart on Wii U, that would be awesome!



gblock commented on Here's What The Next Mario Kart Looks Like:

played the first Mario Kart GP when I was in Hawaii several years ago...I'm REALLY hoping (even though I don't have one near me) that Dave and Busters decides to put these in to replace the NASCAR game that they used to replace Daytona USA...



gblock commented on Warcraft-Loving Canadian Almost Becomes The Ki...:

Congrads on almost getting there V, that short I'm sure you'll get there soon :)

gojiguy, I wouldn't mind seeing them release a 2d/3d redo (not remake) of it (with DK Jr and DK3(in the same graphic style as New Super Mario Bros) with the original arcade versions as well, and make it a bundle. You'd figure with all the press the original DK is getting, that the Big N would try to capitalize on it...



gblock commented on You Can Use PlayStation 2 Pads On Your Wii U, ...:

agreed dude, best accessory you can buy for the Wii is that Mayflash NES/SNES controller adapter, beats paying $65-$80 for a Club Nintendo Super Famicom Wii controller on eBay.

I got 15 Super Famicom controllers from Japan for $60 plus a Mayflash for $15, I'm set for VC gaming :D

I'm in LA but won't be going since I'm the only geek among my friends. I'd have to go alone so I'll be passing on this.

To Hell with the rest of your friends. I went to Video Games Live alone and it was flippin awesome! Go enjoy yourself, embrace your inner nerddom :D



gblock commented on Japanese Virtual Console List - July 2011:

Clearly Nintendo is running out of games to put up for Wii's Virtual Console. Sad to say we may not get games like Yoshi's Island or Starfox, unless they are saving those for Wii U or something. Say, come to think of it, has Nintendo even mentioned Virtual Console being available on the new system yet?

Still haven't release Contra, Mega Man 6, Battletoads, TMNT II & III, and many more good games (and those are just NES titles). They could do more if they really wanted too, but they're phoning it in for the remainder of Wii's lifespan. And why would you want VC on the Wii U? You just paid for these games during the Wii's run, why would you want to pay for the exact same game on the next system?



gblock commented on These Are Your Club Nintendo Elite Rewards:

Gotta love being able to buy codes on eBay and other sources. Got Platinum Status on both of my accounts for the second year in a row for less than the cost of one game :D

Will be doing the same this Club Nintendo year too :)
