hopfolla commented on You Can Now Buy A Replacement Wii U GamePad On...:

I have been waiting for this for a long time. Just please announce for Europe in a choice of colours. I've had a ciggie burn in the corner of my gamepad screen for about a year and it still devastates me every time I look at it. Don't smoke kids.



hopfolla commented on Mario History: Super Mario Galaxy 2 - 2010:

Super Mario galaxy 2 is better than one but I still prefervthe original. The difficulty on number 2 is too high towards the end which ruined my enjoyment of the game. Still awesome though.

hopfolla commented on Chris Prangar, Nintendo Treehouse Staffer Who ...:

We all know know Nintendo are very strict. I got banned once from miiverse for writing 'please add me as a friend if you like playing Mario Kart'. I've never posted on there again! On PlayStation it's much easier to make gaming buddies. Good job Nintendo make my favourite games though.



hopfolla commented on Early NX Reveal Was To "Reinforce Commitment" ...:

I totally understand why they announced the NX early. I want a hybrid handheld and home console. I want to be able to play my handheld games on the TV but don't expect to be able to play my console games on a handheld. I want it to be backwards compatible with 3ds and wii u. I want new gaming experiences. Leave amiibo out of it unless you are going to really support them. Costume changes won't cut it. I want it to be as powerful as ps4. I want it to be affordable. I am probably asking too much.



hopfolla commented on Nintendo of Europe Confirms Animal Crossing: H...:

As I have said before I will not be purchasing this game because of the ridiculous amiibo cards. I refuse to be ripped off this time. Does anyone remember when we just used to just buy games and just play them? I am not hunting down random cards.



hopfolla commented on Exclusive: Project CARS "Simply Too Much For W...:

@Peach64 I stand corrected. Should have done my research first however it I still find it annoying that up until quite recently Slightly Mad were saying (and indeed advertising on their own website) that the game was coming out for Wii U. They now are saying they will bring an version out for Nintendo's next console. That won't happen either so they still continue to fill Nintendo gamers with false hope.



hopfolla commented on Exclusive: Project CARS "Simply Too Much For W...:

Here here, they strung us along right until the very last minute and for Wii U owners who were PROMISED this game on more than one occasion (not told it was a maybe until the very last moment) who contributed to the kickstarter campaign have been ripped off I'm afraid.



hopfolla commented on Video: Nintendo Begins Promotion Of Animal Cro...:

Big animal crossing fan - don't like the look of this game (or amiibo festival or that matter) just seems like a cash cow amiibo rip off. I thought this WAS DLC for new leaf. First animal crossing game I will skip. With all the amiibo madness going on now you really to decide what games you are going to invest in in the future. At what point it became about what amiibo you are willing to pay for to play the game in full instead of just buying the game and playing it is worrying. Why would anyone want to buy four amiibo so they can play a Mario party style board game with their friends is beyond me unless they are rich



hopfolla commented on Obituary: Satoru Iwata:

This is sad and I must say totally unexpected news, we all knew he had a bile duct op previously and I thought he was getting better. Still young really but what a pro he was and whatever criticisms he was given over E3 2015 for not delivering seem pale in comparison to all the things he did and he was probably still doing to move Nintendo forward. RIP Satoru Iwata.



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...
