I would LOVE a new DKR game. Just started playing through the original,again on my JDS and it still holds up today. Sadly, though, I can't see this being a Wii U game as MK8 and DLC is dominating that market and they wouldn't want to dilute that.

At a pinch maybe a 3DS game.

I played a Mario kart arcade game for the first time this summer. Dunno which one it was, but the handling was awful, and the graphics excruciatingly bad. I put a quid in, played one track, won, and then was asked to put another quid in to continue!



norwichred commented on Guide: The Biggest Wii U and 3DS Retail Games ...:

Can honestly, and sadly, say that there is not a single title there on either format that interests me more than happy with what I have to be going on with, toad I might pick up if the price and reviews are good, and hoping for a SNES remix to tide me over.



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

Is it confirmed that Mario Kart 8 is £49.99 download in the UK? I am downloading it - the first time I have ever downloaded a full price retail game on any system. Got £50 credit from GAME so I still get reward points.

My rationale is that I am never going to want to trade it in, and i tend to only have one disc game going at once. I am STILL battling my way through SMB 3D World (up to champions run), and Donkey Kong country is still in cellophane waiting to be played.

So MK8 download it is (and Zelda Windwaker HD as the second game, as I haven't played that).



norwichred commented on Super Mario 3D World Struggles Against PS4 Tit...:

I made THREE separate attempts to pick up my preordered, prepaid copy of SM3DWorld from my local GAME store here in Norwich before I finally managed to get it. My first attempt was 9am, I finally got it at 5pm. Why? The queues for PS4 and Black Friday deals. Each time the queue was over half an hour from door to checkouts and I only had half an hour parking. Not everyone would have had the staying power I did.
It was MADNESS to launch on that day!
