Jonny commented on Super Mario Bros. 3 Arrives on Wii U and 3DS V...:

Thomas, I'm pretty certain I saw in that broadcast that the wii u version would have a price of 2.79 for the discount and then standard pricing.

Edit - Just double checked and yeah, it's 2.79 discount before being the normal 3.49.

Jonny commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Safe and Family-Frie...:

Few months ago I posted on miiverse that having friends over for a few beers and nintendo land made for a great night, I was subsequently warned for breaching a rule that didn't exist in the miiverse code of conduct.

I do respect what nintendo are trying to do but if I can't act like an adult online (especially when I'm being a polite adult) then it justs put me off going online, after that happened I was so annoyed I didn't use miiverse for 2 months.

Jonny commented on Wii Sports Club Takes The Competition Online W...:

I don't love this but I'll happily put down 9 quid for Tennis and Bowling for multiplayer gatherings (Though I'm a tad annoyed we're getting Tennis instead of table tennis)

Is Motionplus compulsory? I only have 1 right now (I had 2 add ons but they've sadly gone missing)

Jonny commented on Asda Stores No Longer Stocking New Wii U Syste...:

This isn't news, they've been refusing to stock new wii u games since Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate came out in my local branch, they even stopped getting in new 3DS games at the same time before realising how well the console turned things around.

Jonny commented on New Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies Trailers Re...:

This is a downloadable game, I doubt the fact it's rated M is going to factor into anyone's buying choice choice and it'll come down to if people want to play a phoenix wright game, they'll download it. If they don't want to, they won't. I can't see anything else being a factor.

Jonny commented on Soapbox: Why Region Locking Is A Total Non-Issue:

I agree that it's mostly a lot of hot hair over nothing Damien in theory but all it takes is one game (for example Persona 4 arena) to take months to get here for people to want them gone. Nintendo though to their credit have normalised release dates across the world really well.

Jonny commented on Shadow of the Eternals Developer Double-Dips W...:

Messy structure, I personally wasn't up for the original paypal crowdfunding because I dislike the idea of giving money for a target that may not be hit, which quickstarter thankfully goes around, but I can't see this approach working at all.

Jonny commented on ZombiU Developer Announces A Patch Is On The Way:

Zombies being able to attack me through walls, zombies without arms hitting me, being able to run through the shutter doors in a closing set piece near the safe house and worst of all - losing a survivor in the catacombs below Tower of London only to have him not regenerate as a zombie to get my stuff back despite restarting multiple times, so yeah a few things they can work on.

Oh, also door loading, I should not nearly die because a game takes forever to load the area beyond a door and I can't open it until it does.

Jonny commented on Iwata Implies That He Could Step Down Over Slu...:

No implication? Iwata has apologised repeatedly for the lacklustre launch of the wii u and now ABSOLUTELY commits to improving next year seems quite extreme to me, especially given the Japanese tradition of taking responsibility and throwing oneself on thy own sword if you have failed. I don't like it anymore than the rest of you but I agree with how Nintendolife read this.

And accusing NL of sensationalism? These guys are probably bigger Nintendo fanboys than most of you commenting, they didn't "spin" this story for the views, they did it because they read something into Iwata's comments and fear for the company's future. Just my two cents anyway

Jonny commented on Talking Point: To 3D or Not to 3D?:

What I'm more interested in: If the backlight is the source of the battery life being so low and the backlight is so intense to support the dimmed colours caused by the 3D, is it possible to give the battery life a good kick up the rear by turning off 3D and dimming the light?

Not that it makes much difference to me, my DS died last weekend which basically followed by me going "ah well, now I HAVE to get a 3ds" with a smile on my face

Jonny commented on E3 2010: Nintendo's 3DS line-up:

They should of unveiled all this at the conference, I thought they needed more games to sell the DS, especially since it's big selling point can't be shown over a projector screen
