It is a disgrace that Nintendo haven't revealed release dates for remainder of the year.

No release dates for Bayonetta or Smash Bros Wii U.

Which I want to book some time off work for, but of course I cannot do so until dates are announced!!!

Ps. I couldn't care less about Watch_Dogs.

johndevine commented on 3DS System Update 8.1.0-18 is Now Live:

Last update screwed my 3DS. Had to go to Nintendo for fixing. They charged me. I guess they thought I was trying to do modifications or something.

Once they got the unit and realised I had done nothing they refunded me for my payment.

Still waiting on it's return though.... it's been 3 weeks!!!!



johndevine commented on Takashi Tezuka: Mario Maker Won't Move Quite L...:

As someone who has owned played and completed all the Mario games since Super Mario Bros... This was the first thing that came into my mind when I seen the E3 coverage of this title.

Playing Mario in the older graphical style with the newer gameplay style is gonna mess with my brain.

Being honest, Im worried about this title.

My belief in Tezuka was unfailing. Until Yoshis Island on the 3DS. Which was the worst Nintendo update Ive played in a long time.

Finished it, but was ultimately disappointed in it.

Also not holding out much hope for Yarn Yoshi. Graphics are good. But initial videos havent rocked my world. Too slow.

I hope Mario Maker is good. I guess its an important title for the Wii u.

And the Nintendo hating continues it seems...

Despite the Wii U being the best home console at the moment.

At least in terms of software quality. It's cool to hate on Nintendo at minute.

If Lovin Nintendo is wrong. I don't wanna be right!



johndevine commented on Nintendo Comes Up Empty at BAFTA Awards:

Videogame BAFTAs are a load of dung.

I believe that no nominations for Nintendo's 3DS titles, is an indication that these awards are organised by a bunch of toffs who know NOTHING about gaming.

About as much credibility as the stupid BRIT music awards.

Does anyone know how much the Digital version (of Mario Kart 8) will cost?

I would love to be able to avail of this offer, but I have two Wii U consoles and Nintendo's terrible online management means I have to avoid digital purchasing if possible.

I can't play my online games on both my consoles. Terrible state of affairs.



johndevine commented on Month Of Kong: What Donkey Kong Country Means ...:

@GunstarHero234 wannabe?

They aren't shoving anything down your throat.

Nor are they pumping them out at the rate Rare were.

I am a huge fan of the SNES trilogy.

But will gladly admit to enjoying the newer kong titles even more. If the 11 year old me had played Tropical freeze. I'd have had a blast.
Returns and tropical freeze are both immense platformers.

Have you played them?

Or more importantly have you finished them.
They are brilliant and very worthy successors to the SNES Kongs.

Although I now hope that Retro don't put out another Kong sequel until the next Nintendo console.

One per console is enough for me. Variety is important.

@Emblem please tell me where you found Digital foundry to be unreputable. A link to the article in question would be good.

Rayman Legends is a good game. Best 3rd party title on console. Which is really refreshing for Wii U.

Indeed it really would have been great if it had remained as an exclusive.
