hopfolla commented on Video: Star Fox Zero - What We Know So Far:

I can't believe the negativity over this game. The graphics look ok to me, I love the fact we are getting a proper Starfox game. Seems like a prequel to me. (They should have done one where you played as Fox's dad). Like the new vehicles. My only concern is the new controls as I am an old skool Starfox player. It has been confirmed you can turn these off what's the problem? Still my most anticipated game this year.



hopfolla commented on Disney Infinity Producer Brands amiibo Stock S...:

amiibo are not fun anymore as the ones you want you can't get. I have 10 amiibo and gave after the last oilmar sold in out in minutes fiasco. I am much happier since I decided to stop collecting them. If it bothers you ignore them. It's not like you can't play the games without them. (Although that pac man amiibo does unlock a really cool outfit in Mario kart) 😕



hopfolla commented on Feature: Nintendo Franchises We Want to See at...:

Paper Mario thousand year door is one of my fave ninty games ever. They need to virtual console that so everyone can play it. I prefer the first 2 games to the Wii and 3ds ones. The battle system was fun. I want to collect 7 stars and have an proper adventure again on wii u!



hopfolla commented on Bowser Jr., Dr. Mario and Olimar amiibo Now Av...:

I must admit I am well annoyed about them being sold out already - you don't even get a chance before they are all gone. Been waiting for the Olimar amiibo since they announced it and now like the Pac-Man amiibo it will be unobtainable at an affordable price forever. I am now done with amiibo. Don't mean to sound negative but it's just seem pointless trying to collect them now.



hopfolla commented on You Don't Need A Yoshi amiibo To Unlock Stuff ...:

Can anyone answer these questions?. Does the yarn yoshi amiibo unlock the yoshi racing suit I'm mario kart 8? Does it also unlock the yoshi board in Mario party 10? Can I also use it like the normal yoshi amiibo in smash bros? (I realise with smash bros and mario party it is one or the other data wise). If anyone can answer this question I would be grateful. Thanks



hopfolla commented on The Legend of Zelda for Wii U No Longer Set fo...:

I am not disappointed - this has happened with most Zelda consoles. They always get delayed. It will be worth the wait. I think that there will still be enough games in Q3 an Q4. Mario Maker, Star Fox and hopefully Xenoblade and Yoshi, Next Level are working on something and a surprise Retro game. Animal Crossing? - I dare to dream



hopfolla commented on Nintendo Europe Shipping Ambassador Edition Ne...:

Nintendo offered me an original DS way back in 2005 in exactly the same fashion but it was called Nintendo VIP not Ambassador back then. I took them up on the offer for £130.
I got A DS, Mario 64 & Metroid Demo & Wario ware demo and a Touch Me! T-shirt in XXL size. I remember having it at least a month before the official launch.
I really want the New Nintendo 3DS - for some strange reason the small one looks so much nicer than the XL.
I want an XL more though, if they had offered me that I would have snapped it up now so not biting this time I'm afraid. Wish I could afford both.



hopfolla commented on Talking Point: Mario Kart 8's Diverse DLC Sets...:

@jjmesa16 2014? Doh! Schoolboy error. Seriously though? I have wanted Nintendo to do this for years but I honestly never thought they would. I am surprised we are getting some new re-worked retro tracks as I thought they would hold them back for MK10. As we all know MK64 and MKDD only had 16 tracks so it is like we are getting a new console Mario Kart game without having to wait another 6 years and at £11 this is bargain. It does open the floodgates for DLC madness though (I'm not complaining!) and raises the bar very high for future entries in the series. (I suspect a track editor by the time we get to the next console MK). I just don't get Amiibo yet - until they announce what value it has to MK9 in terms of content I am not interested in collecting Nintendo figurines as lovely as they look. They just could have made F-Zero U with power-ups and had 2 racing franchises again instead.



hopfolla commented on Nintendo Releases an Extended Gameplay Trailer...:

I really want this game to be good as loved Yoshi's Island on the SNES.
I am starting to wonder if the lack of a review this close to release date is because Nintendo have not give out review copies? Maybe they know the game is not up to scratch? I want to pre-order but the fact that there is no review yet is stopping me. There must be a reason there are no reviews anywhere yet.



hopfolla commented on Talking Point: The Download or Disc Dilemma:

I buy the boxed game as it is cheaper than the eshop and you can play it on other consoles. However I did download Paper Mario Sticker Star simply because I wanted to play it on release day and could not find it on the high street, but I still wish I had brought the card. So much so that i made sure I pre-ordered Luigis Mansion from Amazon so I deffo get the card this time. I like the idea of not having discs or cards though but I still think that it should be £28 for a 3DS game and £38 - 43 for a Wii U game coming in slightly cheaper than buying the box and THEN I would go fully digital. Nintendo have to make it worth my while and tbh I could use the shelf space. The biggest worry about going digital is if your console breaks, Nintendo can't fix it and they give you vouchers that are worth less than the cost of the games you brought. I read a story about that on here the other month and its not good.



hopfolla commented on Wii U Pre-Order Guide:

I would really like to know if you have to have wii motionplus controllers for Nintendoland multiplayer games or if you can use normal wiimote's. I'm guessing the former?



hopfolla commented on Wii U Pre-Order Guide:

Have pre-ordered black deluxe set from amazon and NSMBU. Amazon always come down in price, I got my 3DS & 3DSXL from them and they were competetive and delivered on release days both times- really wanted Pikmin 3 though, waited so many years for this game!!!! Now to try to book 30/11 off work...
