Pj1 commented on You Can Now Buy A Replacement Wii U GamePad On...:

It won't cost £70.00 in the UK though will it? more like £90.00, the Wii-U has been out all most 3 years and this has taken too long to come out. If it makes it to the UK I'll pick one up but I'd love it if (it won't happen) if the B,A X and Y are the same colours as the SNES European controller were / are. They did it with the new 3DS!

Also It will be nice if they did release a separate Wii-U pad if it's bundled with an adapter!



Pj1 commented on Review: Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash (Wii U):

I enjoyed playing Power tennis on the Wii but I can't justify spending £40.00 on this game, I think if I was to pick up for £15.00 - £20.00 I'll be happy.



Pj1 commented on Talking Point: Deep Breaths Are Needed as High...:

Nintendo sent me an email that the direct starts at 10pm UK time and come Thursday by the time I get home from work (unless I go out) I will miss some of the direct, doesn't matter. I can catch up on Nintendo life and then the next day the repeat might be repeated on youtube or whatever.

I reckon if they don't mention Zelda Twilight Princess HD it won't happen.

Lets see........



Pj1 commented on Site News: Nintendo Life Turns 10 Today:

Happy Birthday!
I remember I was reading N Gamer and they had a feature about a website that featured screen shots of the Wii VC but for some reason I couldn't find it in the magazine but I did google it. Anyway I stumbled across N.L and I would go on the site every thursday / friday to see what great games were put up on the Wii VC service. Nowadays I visit every day, Well done guys!



Pj1 commented on Preview: Hitting the Courts in Mario Tennis: U...:

I am tempted but I've seen this game on the Game, Nintendo store and Amazon for £40.00 even if I wanted this for Christmas and got it I think it's a tad unfair to expect someone else to pay that price for it. If the game came out at £25.00- £30 I'd be tempted, I enjoyed Mario tennis on the wii that was pretty cool. I think I'll wait for a price drop first.



Pj1 commented on Rumour: More Evidence Mounts of Twilight Princ...:

It'll be interesting when / if Nintendo does a direct and this gets announced, I hope the HD title if the rumour is true gets a physical release and the retail price is reasonable. I won't download it as I think it will take a lot of memory.



Pj1 commented on Sonic The Hedgehog Titles Being Pulled From Th...:

I downloaded these when they first came out, in fact the day I got my Wii I downloaded Sonic 1 and the day 2 came out I did the same. It's a real shame that they are being pulled from that service. So does that mean the Mastersystem versions will come off soon then?



Pj1 commented on New Euro Wii U Premium Bundle Contains Mario K...:

The lead up to Christmas Nintendo will do well selling these bundles, I think if there are people thinking 'shall I buy a Wii-U? I don't know' I'd say now is the time to buy one and if you don pick one up you won't regret it. If the pack was Splatoon and Mario Party 10 I would have been annoyed as I recently bought a Brawl bundle with a physical copy and it's the white edition.I have two now one for the lounge and for the spare room.



Pj1 commented on Nintendo Download: 8th October (Europe):

I can't believe no nice discounts on any Super Mario games still but I'm not that bothered....

As long as my Wii works with Super Mario All Stars I'm happy.

Sonic 2 instant download for me as I still have credit left on my account. Thank You Sega and Nintendo.



Pj1 commented on GAME Apologises for Super Mario Maker Pre-Orde...:

I was hoping for calm after the storm but I have still have not received an email from game that my order has been dispatched. So in the next few days or so I will get my 6 refunds, however if I get the game on friday I will be happy.

@Sakura You can return the item at your nearest game instead of posting it back....



Pj1 commented on GAME Processes Additional Charges on Super Mar...:

Sorry Nintendo Life if I have posted so many times now but

@ROBLOGNICK I am in the same boat as you.

@Starz I havn't had the dispatch email yet but thank you for your reply

This is not funny but they emailed me the other day saying that they would 'process' orders on Monday and then this happens.



Pj1 commented on GAME Processes Additional Charges on Super Mar...:

I've just looked at my emails from earlier and I got five from them saying that the order was being processed!!
Did anyone get this on their emails as well?
"The store has encountered a problem processing the last request. Try again later. If the problem persists, contact your site administrator"

What does that mean, has anyone else had that?

Pj1 commented on GAME Promises Quick Refunds After Charging Cus...:

I wondered why had weird emails from them yesterday (Monday) I personally think that my pre-order has been cancelled, I can't log on to my account. Its saying my password is wrong, so I got a reminder to reset it and now that don't work either. I just hope whatever happens Nintendo Store UK don't mess this up as I might be left with no game on release day.....

I pre-ordered from game and Nintendo store as I wanted to keep one sealed.

Oh and if anyone pre-ordered from game can they please post on here when they get an emal from them saying it's been dispatched. Thank You,



Pj1 commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer...:

How comes Super Mario All stars isn't on the list? I would have voted for it.

I have great memories from All Stars, even bought it again on the Wii.
However as SMAS wasn't there I voted for Super Mario World in fact I am trying to find all 96 levels before Maker comes out, no easy task as I am at work in between. I have completed SMW finding all 96 levels four times, I've heard recently that if you collect all the dragon coins in every level you can get 100% but I think that is too hard to do it!

I would have voted SM3 as my second choice but that game is hard and I would even go as far as saying it's harder than SM World. I like Lost levels but that game is just mean, very hard. However the All Stars version I quite like a lot because if you use all 5 lives on a particular level you go back to that level and not right back to the start of the world like on other Mario games on All Stars.

I wonder whether in 5 years time when Super Mario celebrates his 35th Birthday and Nintendo Life do this poll again I just wonder where and how Mario Maker will do......



Pj1 commented on Mario History: Super Mario 64 DS - 2004:

I had this game & still do, I bought it really cheap brand new at MVC when they were closing down. I played it & hated the controls, then sold it for more than I paid! & it wasn't on an auction site!
Recently I found it in tesco's again it was pretty cheap, I've played it but I still can't get used to the controls. Got it on Wii-u VC but I'm really hoping Nintendo will allow us to use a GameCube controller on the Wii-u VC, I recommend using a G.C controller & not the classic one.



Pj1 commented on Review: Super Mario Maker (Wii U):

I've pre-ordered this; I should be sent a t-shirt from Nintendo store and badge set from another on-line retailer. Dunno what I'm looking forward to the most?
Wearing the t shirt or admiring the badge set in a nice decorative box, I'm going to be sad I'll wear the yellow the t shirt whilst I play it. I am also going to try every possible level and of course try to design a few of my own levels, I've also set myself a challenge I'm going to see if I can do a re-run of Super Mario World and find all 96 exits before this game hits my letter box next week. I'm excited and have set a countdown timer, 'I will give it a look now' 8 Days, 14 hours, 29 minutes! (I don't know how accurate it is) to go!!
I just wish I've booked some time off work for it but I don’t know how speedy it will be once posted, I also wonder how many consoles Nintendo will sell as a result of this game being released?

Also I will check Nintendo Life like I do every day, to find out what else the big N has in store to celebrate Mario’s birthday.



Pj1 commented on Nintendo 2DS Drops To $99 In North America:

I bought a 2DS brand new for £39:00 from a super market online, so pleased I did because day or two later they were full price again. I bought a case too for £10.00. I was pretty pleased it came with a 3DS charger!



Pj1 commented on Video: Get Happy with Our Super Mario McDonald...:

@Pete41608 I'd like one too! I totally agree.

Starwolf_UK You are so right my friend, this is what happened last year. The toy Alex got (boomerang Mario) was totally different to the ones I got today, I got Yoshi and the hat. So McDonalds are all ready doing them in a very random sort of way, I also think unless they run out of stock early (they won't with the hats) new ones will appear every Wednesday.

Nintendo Life I'm pretty sure if you guys sold merchandise it will sell....
you could do t-shirts, pens, mugs and if you're got permission the odd dvd.



Pj1 commented on Gallery: Take a Look at the Super Mario Happy ...:

I told Nintendo Life about this about a month ago and even the release date, I'll be collecting these again but I will also buy them too, last time I had to buy one on ebay. Not this time, I'll go to my local Mc'ds next Wednesday....



Pj1 commented on Nintendo Announces Super Mario Maker Wii U Har...:

I think Nintendo have been really lazy with the release of this bundle, yes the box artwork looks pretty good but I feel a bit let down with this. Five years ago Nintendo released a limited edition red Wii with a built in game Donkey kong and bundled it with New Super Mario Bros, they even released red DS XL with Mario branding on them. What I don’t get is when they released the Wii-U Zelda wind maker pack the game pad has / had nice artwork on the actual game pad. This is just a repacked Wii-U bundle with the limited edition game pack inside, this is a real shame. If the Wii got a built in game then why havn’t they done the same with this edition, this is supposed to be Mario’s 30th Birthday. Yes they releasing standalone 8 bit Mario amiibo’s is nice but not for my wallet, I had been looking forward in Nintendo releasing a limited edition Wii-U bundle as I really wanted to get one but now I have to reconsider this one. I am looking forward to Mario maker and having the chance in playing other peoples designed levels, I even set a countdown timer on my phone for this release. The other thing that I am annoyed about is the SMM Wii-U bundle is not on the Nintendo store’s website yet and I bet when it does it’ll be £300.00. Shame.



Pj1 commented on Poll: What Do You Want From Nintendo's NX Plat...:

I would like VC games to go be available quicker and more choice, I would really like if E.A will do a VC service as I think people will still play ice hockey, Desert strike and road rash games. I was thinking the other day how cool a Sim City game would be on the system if Nintendo makes it with EA and make unique. I really would like Nex to be the system that people sit up and take notice with, I thought the Wii was that console. However for me I won't get one on launch I'll probably wait about 6 months or so, I really feel like I got my fingers burnt by adopting 3DS and Wii-U on launch day only for the systems to get big price drops and besides I still have a huge back log of games to play from Wii and Wii-U. Sorry Nintendo.



Pj1 commented on Nintendo Official UK Store Throws in a Neat T-...:

Lets hope the Nintendo store has enough stock to go round but to be all most sold out in less than 24 hours is pretty amazing. I feel lucky that I got my order in after an hour and half of recieving the email from Nintendo!

And now the count down starts.

I am secretly hoping for limited edtion Wii-U bundles and 3DS console bundles to mark the Super Mario anniversary.



Pj1 commented on Nintendo Official UK Store Throws in a Neat T-...:

It's a bit od that amazon don't have the amiibo version pack, I've pre-ordered it with Nintendo store. I hope I didn't leave it too late but I did pre-order with game as well, 2 months for this game feels like it will be a long, long wait. I am also looking forward to a Nintendo Direct nearer the time!



Pj1 commented on Review: Yoshi's Woolly World (Wii U):

@Chaoz I agree with you but I bet you guys get Super Mario Maker months before we do, I think it's crazy UK/ Europe gets it on Friday and America and Canada have to wait four months. And no I'm not taking the p**s.
