jordanmarsden commented on Hardware Review: 8Bitdo FC30 Pro Controller:

This looks like a really great controller, and I've been in the market for a Classic Controller recently so I can revisit a few Virtual Console games... However, I still think the Hori Battle Pad might be a better option, and that Pikachu edition Battle Pad is right up my street.



jordanmarsden commented on Poll: Nintendo Minute Debate - Is Super Mario ...:

Super Mario World is awesome, but Super Mario Bros. 3 is the game that set the template for so many future iterations in the Super Mario series (New Super Mario Bros, etc.) and the 2D platforming genre as a whole, so I'd have to go with Super Mario Bros. 3.



jordanmarsden commented on Miyamoto Confirms Next Wii U System Update Is ...:

System-wide achievements and cross-buy functionality are an absolute must.

Digital games are already ludicrously expensive on the eShop, and I refuse to buy the same game twice just so I can play it on both of my Nintendo systems.

I don't see Nintendo putting much effort into achievements any time soon, but it really does leave a gaping whole in the Wii U's arsenal.

... And a few GameCube VC titles would be nice.



jordanmarsden commented on Nintendo Is Sorry That The Wii U's TVii Servic...:

Unfortunately I think they've missed the boat with this service. Considering that the majority of the UK is served by Rupert Murdoch's BSkyB, I think that it may be too hard to successfully launch something like this without some major deals being made, some deals that I just can't see Nintendo making.



jordanmarsden commented on Mario Kart 8:

I can see Wii U sales rising exponentially as soon as this and Super Smash Bros hit the market.



jordanmarsden commented on Video: Here's Another Chance to Check Out Nint...:

@Fazermint I never said I was mad... I love Nintendo and couldn't care less whether they're selling systems as long as I'm personally enjoying the games they're making.

The fact is that there is a lot of doom and gloom surrounding Nintendo's Wii U system at the moment (rightly or wrongly), and they had an opportunity to address some of the issues but didn't take it.



jordanmarsden commented on Soapbox: Even With The Arrival Of PS4 And Xbox...:

I'm a lifelong Nintendo fan and will finally be picking up a Wii-U in the next week or two. My main issue is not with the console, it's with the fact that Nintendo seemed to stop talking to me... I was their advocate for years, but in an attempt to broaden their fan base they kind of put everyone else on the back burner.

I still love Nintendo, and the 3DS is far and away my favourite console on the market at the moment, I just wish Nintendo would try a little harder to actively bring people like myself back into their plans.
