gblock commented on Rumours and Speculation Stir Over Potential In...:

I kinda hope the new Apple TV has gaming support for IOS titles, I have several that I'd like to play on a bigger screen (Zen Pinball and Pinball Arcade, Pac-Man Championship Edition DX + , Horizon Chase and a few more.



gblock commented on Mario Memories: Super Mario Bros. 3, Still Bri...:

such great memories behind this game. my first playing of it came one summer as a preteen. Went to my aunt and uncle's house in Virginia with a couple of my cousins for a week. Was my first exposure to NES Batman, Super Mario 3, Lethal Weapon 2 and Big Trouble in Little China (rented them on VHS). Needless to say a great week!



gblock commented on Crunchyroll Wii U App Can Now Be Used Without ...:

I'm all for the freemium model, I can deal with 3 30second ads 3 times in a 25 minute window. But, the only complaint I have is the same d&#m ad (sometimes all 3 ads in one commercial break).

that being said, when winter rolls around, I'm probably doing premium. $60 for a year of HD, Ad free anime is an insane deal!



gblock commented on Editorial: Cheer Up, There Are Some Exciting G...:

Mario Maker (and in a smaller capacity, Wooly World) were the only things out of E3 (across all platforms) that remotely appealed to me...probably just getting older and set in my ways/bored with modern gaming (compared to games from my/our past)...



gblock commented on New Exploit Makes The 3DS Region Free Without ...:

f'n stupid that nintendo region locks....I wanna play Taiko no Tatsujin on the Wii U, but nooooooooooooooo, stupid US only I have to stick to my soft modded original wii and the 5 japanese releases on that system



gblock commented on Nintendo Reveals New Range, Details and Compat...:


If I can only have two, d@mn right those are the two I'm getting, but hopefully preorders drop instore at GS in the next day or two and I can preorder all of them (the SSB wave, not the MP10 wave) and not have to worry about choosing



gblock commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

It was a near tie between MK Wii and MK64...until MK8 came out and blew me away, that and alot of my favoritre retro tracks being redone on Wii U in HD (with more to come in the DLC part 2 next year) puts #8 head and above everyone of the others.



gblock commented on Free Pokémon Alpha Sapphire & Omega Ruby Medl...:

Nintendo/Namco REALLY needs to release one of these in the US for Wii U! would be a day one pre-order for the drum bundle (and an extra drum).

Also since Wii U is picking up steam, how about Namco you go back on your "we aren't gonna release Pac-Man Collection w/ Pac-Man Battle Royale becaue the Wii U doesn't have an install base worthwhile" HMMMMMMMMM



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!



gblock commented on Guide: Getting Started in Mario Kart 8:

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



gblock commented on Nintendo Reveals The 2013 Club Nintendo Elite ...:

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



gblock commented on Nintendo Reveals The 2013 Club Nintendo Elite ...:

@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



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
