ledreppe commented on Nintendo Celebrates Its 125th Anniversary:

Nintendo has always been, and always will be, my first choice for video games each gen. I have so many happy memories over the last 25 years. Many more happy returns to you, Nintendo!



ledreppe commented on Nintendo Download: 11th September (Europe):

@1wiierdguy I hope Virtues Last Reward has been patched since I played the physical version. There was a bug that stopped me loading my progress, and the European publisher was hopeless in trying to get it resolved for me.

It's strange that LttP is cheaper than Minish cap, given ones SNES and the other GBA. A lot of good discounts this week, I'd definitely recommend Harvest Moon: Tale of Two Towns to anyone who is thinking about it. More so than Hometown Story, I was left feeling dissapointed with that.



ledreppe commented on Nintendo Download: 28th August (Europe):

MK8 DLC for me this week. Just wish they had put in proper battle arenas, such a wasted opportunity for an update. Heck, I would've been willing to wait longer for this update!



ledreppe commented on Nintendo Download: 21st August (Europe):

I never got a chance with Tomodachi Life, mainly because MK8 came out the week before and some Vita games seemed more appealing. I may get into it yet, if the demo pleases me!



ledreppe commented on The NES Story Began On This Day 31 Years Ago:

I'm 35, and remember getting the PAL version in the mid-late 80's (memories a little fuzzy to remember exactly!). I've still got that system plugged into an old c.r.t tv ready to play. I still remember the day I went to Dixons (kids, ask your Dad what that shop is) and buying the system with Super Mario Bros (off course) and the zapper and duck hunt. One of the best memories I have of purchasing a new system.



ledreppe commented on Sony: PS4 Is "Welcoming Back" Wii Owners Who S...:


I've got a PS4 and I agree with what you say. I don't think Sony is right to say they're welcoming back Wii owners to the PlayStation brand, as I've never owned a PS before, so that's a load of cobblers.

I would much rather Sony allowed backwards compatibility with PS3 games, instead they're remastering them and forcing me to buy a new copy on release, this is appalling and I don't put up with it on Nintendo systems.



ledreppe commented on 3DS System Update 8.0.0-18 is Now Live:

I'm so glad the 3DS (so far) hasn't been hacked, the same way the DS was with R4 cards. Yes, I'll admit I played a few games on R4 on the DS, but I've bought every single 3DS game. I thought the 3DS was stable enough, it's my Wii U that needs more stability improvements. I just stopped getting lockups with Ver. 5.0.0, but LEGO Hobbit crashed (don't know if it's just the game or the system).



ledreppe commented on Nintendo Download: 26th June (Europe):

I was really hoping for Shovel Knight this week. The comments say it's being localised for UK, so I'll just have to be a little more patient. Otherwise, nothing for me this week.



ledreppe commented on Star Fox on Wii U to Support Local Co-Op With ...:

Nintendo Life & Nintendo stop being obsessed with local co-op, you know everyone wants online. You never cater for the lone wolves, which is why I was so dissapointed in Star Foc 64 3D, they made excuses as to why they couldn't make that online, but at the end of the day they were just idiots for excluding it. I seriously would condsider passing this up with a lack of online. I've loved the StarFox series from the SNES days, but I haven't enjoyed it as much since. Please Nintendo, get this right, it may be my last Star Fox for a long time if I don't buy future systems.



ledreppe commented on Wii Owners Are Upgrading To PlayStation 4, Cla...:

I've got a Wii U and PS4, but Wii U gets more love. Like the report subtitle says, I think Sony is twisting the stats on this one. They are saying that Wii owners are upgrading to PS4, but what they mean to say is Wii owners have bought a Wii U and also a PS4. They're just making themselves sound better the way they say it.



ledreppe commented on Wii U System Update 5.0.0 Now Live, Adds Quick...:

"Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience",

Well it bloody well better stop my Wii U from locking up when it feels like it. I've sent my console and gamepad to Nintendo and they don't know what's causing it to lock up.



ledreppe commented on Nintendo Download: 5th June (Europe):

I'm still satisfied with MK8, so I wont be downloading anything this week, and probably the week after! Some of those games have over £20 discounted from them. Just goes to show how overpriced they are and subsequently how poorly they're selling.


You could always try re-downloading everything in the case you lose your 3DS.



ledreppe commented on Play: Mario Kart 8 With Nintendo Life in our L...:

I'll be there 8PM UK time, just hope the waiting line to get into the tournament isn't too long. Hopefully I'll have had some time to get used to the game before I get into the tournament.


I generally avoid Amazon these days, they are too slow even with the Prime 1 day delivery they managed to screw things up, and they're expensive, just to rub salt in the wound.



ledreppe commented on Poll: A Tale of Two Blockbusters as Mario Kart...:

It's a no brainer for me, Mario Kart 8 all the way. I pre-ordered the Limited Edition from the Nintendo UK online store, and it's saying: `Dispatched on 30th May. This is worrying me, as most online retailers aim to dispatch before the launch day so it arrives on launch day. I may not be able to play until Saturday, nnnnnnnnoooooooooooooo!



ledreppe commented on Feature: Kickstarter's Wii U and 3DS Campaigns...:

I've had enough of Kickstarter. Most of the ones I've backed have gone wrong in some way, and been delayed and delayed and then broken into several pieces (or acts), to raise more money to finish games that even met their stretch goals. NOT IMPRESSED Kickstarter.



ledreppe commented on Nintendo Download: 29th May (Europe):


I think the VC Super Mario Kart discount only applies to the download version of Mario Kart 8. That was the only thing that was tempting me to get the download of MK8, but the Blue Shell Limited Edition with Bullet Bill t-shirt and red shell keyring was more tempting in the end.
