Nintendo really need to expand in the area of downloadable cards. In Australia they are still very difficult to get and the ones you see are eshop cards with Wii and 3DS logo's with no mention of Wii U. This is something relatively easy for Nintendo to solve and the only signs they are taking this seriously is Gamev UK's selection of downloadable cards.

I picked up the Hanafuda cards for 3000 points. I have 2100 points left and about 8-10 games I have yet to register which I plan on doing in time gor the Luigi diorama! Finally we Aussies get some decent stuff. Too bad I missed out on the Luigi coin though!



luminalace commented on Review: NES Remix (Wii U eShop):

Really fun game and $13 in Australia is a decent price for it which makes it more surprising that it costs $15 in the U.S. Usually a U.S price point of $15 would mean a $20 price here!

Honestly this isn't a big deal because everyone should get the physical copy. Here in Australia the eshop version is $79.95 yet I bought it at retail for $68 which obviously included the Wii Remote+ as well as the Gamepad stand!

I prefer Turbo Hyper Fighting (Just called Hyper Fighting in the arcades) to New Challengers. Unfortunately the SNES never got the final game in the Street Fighter 2 series which is affectionately known as Super Turbo to my friends and in my opinion the best in the SF2 series!



luminalace commented on Review: Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams (Wii U e...:

It's a very good game but boy does it get hard quickly. The first boss was quite difficult (I died many times) and the switching mechanic is a little confusing because certain moves also auto switch but regardless it's a beautiful and original platformer!



luminalace commented on Nintendo Australia Has No Plans for Wind Waker...:

Nintendo Australia becomes a bigger joke as time goes on! I can't even begin to fathom how you would not release a Zelda bundle here like Nintendo is doing elsewhere. I'm also sad on a personal level that the Ganondorf figurine isn't coming here!
