kokirii commented on Poll: The Tricky Issue of Retail Games as Down...:

I don't see why everyone is so hung up on "owning" things. If you pay $12 to go see a movie in the theater, you're paying for the 2-hour experience. If you pay $50 or $60 for even just 10 hours of gameplay experience, the expense ratio is the exact same. Of course, most Nintendo games are going to net you many more than 10 hours, and the value proposition is even higher than going to the movies because you will own access to your game for at least the generation if not longer (i.e. since you can download it you may be able to play it for as long as you have a functioning console).



kokirii commented on European Club Nintendo Has a Lovely Last Hurra...:

yep....I had a ton of coins and spent them all on digital games I would've much rather purchased with cash...but all we got in NA was a simple cop-out of digital games instead of cool stuff like this. Why does Nintendo hate us?



kokirii commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

@RantingThespian please call Nintendo Support and tell them! They called me back for more info twice and each time they said that they were not aware of this happening to other people. They need to know about this problem before they start pushing out more large Wii games to download.



kokirii commented on Hundreds of Limited Edition Majora's Mask New ...:

@SkullKid there aren't going to be any at your local gamestop. These preorders were never in-store preorders. Gamestop was just taking orders for systems that they would ship directly to your home. Anyone who hasn't pre-ordered this is not going to get one (unless they buy from the scalpers, which I refuse to do).

I was in Gamestop less than two hours after these were announced (took an extended lunch break!) and I missed out on getting a pre-order. Very upset and wish Nintendo would show that they care about true fans who have to choose between being taken advantage of and missing out on really neat items like these.



kokirii commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

HELP! I'm experiencing a bug with Super Mario Galaxy 2. I downloaded it to an external hard drive. When I launch it, I just get a black screen for 2-3 minutes and then the Wii U turns off and restarts to the home screen.

When I move the game to the system hard drive it works fine. It only causes this problem when it's on the external HDD. I called Nintendo Support and they were not aware of others having this problem. Their next tier of support is going to "look into it" and get back in touch with me in a few days. Has anyone else run into this??



kokirii commented on Nintendo Confirms The Mario Kart 8 Premium Pac...:

"Nintendo of America is yet to announced"

should be "...has yet to announce" (I'm sure about removing the 'd.' Using 'has' as the helping verb also seems correct to me but maybe that is different in UK English.)



kokirii commented on Review: Yoshi's New Island (3DS):

"Ok guys, we need some 'new' ideas for Yoshi."

"Well, we had Mario get really big and plow through the level destroying everything in his path. Why don't we just do the exact same thing with Yoshi's egg?"



kokirii commented on Talking Point: Super Metroid's 20th Anniversar...:

Just finished downloading Super Metroid on Wii U VC for my first ever playthrough!

As for the Prime trilogy, any hope in that appearing in an HD remake? Should I just get the Wii version that sells for so much on eBay?



kokirii commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

No point in getting into arguments with people whose minds are made up. Just wanted to say that as a man with an infant daughter hoping against hope that something about our culture's hunger to objectify people and hyper-sexualize everything changes before she becomes a teenager, I appreciate this Soapbox, Damien.



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

@irken004 I am just looking at it from a different angle. You're billing the small internal storage as a failure of Nintendo to be with "the times" (as defined by you) rather than realizing that it's a conscious choice that allows people the choice to add more storage if they WANT (and still keeping the total price point below the other consoles) while keeping the price down to allow entry for more people/families who don't need more than 32 GB of space, which is the case for many people who don't want/can't afford to pay the extra money for 500 GB up front.
