Nintenjoe64 commented on French Health and Safety Body Recommends Child...:

There's nothing wrong with putting safety first but this reminds me of being told that looking at screens all day would damage my eyesight. I'm 32 and still haven't stopped spending too much time in front of screens and my eyesight is absolutely fine.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Review: Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (Wii U):

"and while his original 3D outings, Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2, were well-designed fan favourites"

I thought the adventure games were pretty bad as a teenager and I don't remember many fans amongst my fellow Dreamcast owners. I sometimes think it's only because Sega have plumbed new depths almost annually with worse, slightly broken games that the adventure games are remembered so fondly. Hopefully the abysmal sales of this game will deter Sega from all this Sonic abuse and make them consider revisiting IP that might actually translate well into a modern game.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Video: Jimmy Fallon Reveals He's A Keen Mario ...:

I still have no idea what my preferred set-up is for MK8. I think I settled on a small selection of vehicles on MKW pretty quickly but MK8 seems to have many more subtle and incremental differences. I still haven't even scratched the surface with the game. It's a good thing that Nintendo give us 5 years to learn everything.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Genyo Takeda Discusses Nintendo's Hardware Future:

TV ads might not be as effective as they used to be but it's no coincidence that the top selling console of 2014 is the one which had blanket TV advertising on the popular channels. It's also no coincidence that Nintendo's best ever generation for hardware sales was their most heavily advertised on TV. The weird thing is that the Wii campaign with famous families playing Wii games would have been perfect for showing off Nintendoland back in 2012.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Developers Reflect on F-Zero As It Passes Ten ...:

It's amazing how much love there is for this series considering X and GX both sold poorly and all the filthy casual PS1/2 players used to say it looked terrible, needed weapons and wasnt as good as wipeout. I'd definitely buy the next proper game but I'm hoping FAST Neo is good enough to satisfy my futuristic racer cravings



Nintenjoe64 commented on Nintendo 64x64: ISS 98:

Glad to see I am not the only person who thought football games hit a peak with this game. I would buy this on VC over any new FIFA on Wii U.

I wish Konami would make another Nintendo exclusive football game. Pro Evo on Wii was almost really good. FIFA and PES on the other consoles are still stuck where they were when this game was released.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:

I think they should actually advertise it and maybe it will sell. I think MK8 needs some more adverts to go with whatever they're planning for Smash. A price cut wouldn't improve sales if they don't tell anybody.

Early 2015 could be important but I have no faith I Nintendo to release more than 1 major game before e3



Nintenjoe64 commented on Nintendo 64x64: Top Gear Rally:

Loved this but remember it didn't review brilliantly at the time.

Would snap up a VC re-release but am more interested in getting the original Top Gear from the SNES (better music)



Nintenjoe64 commented on Review: Donkey Kong Country (Wii U eShop / Sup...:

I'm surprised how many people are bothering to say how they think this game is overrated. I think that might be because of the fanboy in them remembering that Miyamoto didn't like the series. It wasn't massively original but it refined and beautified most of the staples of 16-bit platforming. I remember Christmas 94 being perfect because of this game. It also makes me proud that I didn't consider it a difficult game to complete when I was 12 but it's considered really tough by modern gaming standards.

I don't think the graphics hold up too well in any of the SNES DKC games on my 50" tv but they look ok on the gamepad which is where I will be playing them.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Video: Footage Surfaces of Cancelled Wii Star ...:

I'm not sure who is to blame but it seems like the worst cancellation of all time. I'm wondering if some NDAs expired for him to only talk about it now. Hopefully this is a 'come and save my game' plea...... Disney and Nintendo could make this happen....... It could save Wii U!

Okay that last bit was probably a step too far.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Capcom Won't Greenlight Sequels If A Game Does...:

@justastone Xenoblade was popular.

@Kogorn733 games like F-Zero, WaveRace, 1080 Snowboarding, Disaster Day of Crisis, Geist haven't had sequels because the last/only game in the series failed to sell as well as Nintendo hoped.

@WaLzgi if you're referring to the first game, that wasn't released this century. Obviously Nintendo's bar isn't set at 2 million copies but if a game sells poorly it more than likely gets buried.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Super Smash Bros. Takes the Lead in Japan Once...:

Fatal Frame will probably need a localisation just to break even at the moment! Fingers crossed. I wonder if Nintendo will promote Bayonetta over here like it's a key game of 2014 or whether they'll leave it to rot and just advertise Smash.....



Nintenjoe64 commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

What did people expect?
That the GC controller would work on all those games with two L buttons?

It would be very easy for them to update the firmware on the Wii channel to accept Gamecube controllers via USB but this announcement pretty much says they have no plans for that. We will probably see more HD remakes of GC games nobody asked for and neither of them will support this controller!



Nintenjoe64 commented on Nintendo 64x64: GoldenEye 007:

Using the sniper rifle on the dam level is one of my favourite gaming memories. It seems ordinary to have a sniper rifle in a shooter but in 1997 it was the stuff of a madman's dreams. Nintendo should reunite the old Rare at whatever cost and rule the shooting world again.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Nintendo 64x64: Forsaken:

I'm glad this game was not forsaken.

I never fully got the hang of this game but the Ronnie Size tune was awesome for an N64 game!



Nintenjoe64 commented on Video: Aqua Moto Racing Utopia Footage Breaks ...:

This looks quite cool but I know as soon as I buy this game or FAST or a Snowboarding Racing game, Nintendo will announce WaveRace, F-Zero and 1080 reboots.

If Nintendo don't put balance board support in a 1080 game soon then Iwata should quit. It's just stupid to not have one.
