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.

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?
