itsgood2slide commented on Review: Rodea the Sky Soldier (3DS):

I don't yet own a Wii U, but I can nonetheless echo some of the posters above and say that it is totally worth buying Rodea just for the Wii version. It's a lot of fun, has loads of replay value and it's as close to a 3D Nights as we are likely to see. The cumbersome on-foot controls are the only negative point for me so far, but that's just another reason to fly everywhere, and the flying feels great! : D

itsgood2slide commented on Yuji Naka Expresses Interest in Sequels to Ivy...:

The running game in Let's Tap has remained popular among my friends and family, despite having only 16 short courses. Playing it yesterday got me thinking it would be great to see a standalone e-shop release with a course creator and the ability to share them online.

I really enjoyed Ivy the Kiwi? too and I would definitely buy a sequel.

itsgood2slide commented on Reminder: Club Nintendo Closes in Europe on 30...:

Having tried and failed many times yesterday, I am happy to say that it is still working now 06.55 BST. Only 50 stars lost to the ether (although over the years I am sure more stars expired than I actually used).

I hope the replacement system is less onerous (yes Nintendo I'm still an 'advanced' gamer who already owns a 3DS, and no I have not changed my age or gender in the past 2 minutes) and that our credit can amass indefinitely so we can save up for what we really want.

@Senario Given Nintendo's family-friendly image, this is not a positive move for them, especially when gaming comes under fire for encouraging people to be less active and thus less healthy. The Wii was a positive step in this sense, but endorsements like this are a negative one.

I was not telling people what to eat (if animals have to suffer terribly for your enjoyment that's on your conscience, not mine), I was just pointing out that I am unhappy that a company I have supported over the years (Nintendo) is in turn supporting and encouraging people to support a company I detest (McDonalds).

@SCAR392 Yes, I know of them firstly because of South Park and secondly because they have restaurants here in London. I have not checked out their menu yet, but I agree it would be great to see some tofu there. There's a Mexican-style restaurant chain in Germany called Delores which have some fantastic vegan options which include tofu.

@SCAR392 That's great to hear you are trying to avoid such products. There are many local, national and international groups of vegans that support each other and share ideas on cruelty-free (and affordable) alternatives. http://www.happycow.net/ for example is a useful website for finding out where you can find vegan restaurants and places with good vegan options. Whereabouts are you from?

@nesvc That's true, but nonetheless this promotion will encourage both adults and children to spend money on McDonalds products, which is ultimately bad for them (and worse for the animals they eat). I choose not to support the deplorable meat, dairy and egg industries so I only eat foods that contain no animal products. As a gaming enthusiast, I am sad to see Nintendo support them.

itsgood2slide commented on Rumour: Crash City Mayhem Set To Speed Across ...:

It's the latest game in the long-running Runabout series. As a fan of the genre and series, this is in fact the 3DS game I am looking forward to the most. The previous entry, Runabout 3 Neo Age on PS2, is basically the Earth Defense Force of mission-based driving games.
