placidcasual commented on Pure Chess DLC Will Be Available Day One, And ...:

What id like to know is if I can play on the wiiu against my girlfriend on the 3ds? I know its cross platform multiplayer over the net but can I directly connect to the exact opponent I want either using local wireless or the interwebs? Anyone know?

@Varoennauraa I think its more likely that vc releases dont have the same amount of 3rd party support as on the wii vc. Maybe Nintendo want to stagger what little they have in the pipeline. Saying that it smacks of laziness on Nintendos part as it should be a relatively simple matter to get more publishers interested. It is after all almost free money for them.

@CaviarMeths The thinking behind it could be that there's going to be a lot more people backing it to a higher stretch goal. Which, if true, kind of stinks and prioritises a money grab over the game reaching where most people would be able to appreciate it. I've backed 6 projects so far on ks so I like crowd funding in general but I think something reeks about this one...



placidcasual commented on Review: CastleStorm (Wii U eShop):

I thought it was a good review, it's got a nice quirky style to it. A summary is at the start which you rarely see but it works well and its actually a rather good idea.



placidcasual commented on Nintendo Acknowledges Network Issues and Sugge...:

I got a lovely new luigi 3ds today but can't do a system transfer until they sort the online out sadly. Means I cant play on my nice new xmas present. Not too bad I've got plenty of things to do today but it's a suprise that nintendo didn't expect a lot of extra traffic today, poor show really but good that more people have got a wii u and 3ds.



placidcasual commented on Parent Trap: StreetPass Makes Social Networks ...:

In defence of the article your family is actually a social network in its purest and most basic form. Being social can just boil down to saying hello to people on the street which is exactly how your 3ds is acting on your behalf when you streetpass someone. I'm not a big fan of facebook myself but just because thats how one (admittedly rather dominant) social network acts doesn't mean that its form and function have to define the term social network itself. Just my opinion of course-others are welcome to disagree.



placidcasual commented on EA: Being Voted The Worst Company In America W...:

Dont really care about ea that much but thats fine as they dont really care about Nintendo gamers that much either. From the wii onwards its been a hard market for third parties to get right and seems like theyve given up now. Fair enough...



placidcasual commented on Readers Of EDGE Consider Ocarina Of Time And M...:

@Captain_Balko If you've played it you'll know why-trust me! I know it hasn't been out long but you kind of know when you're playing something that good that it will stand the test of time. Think about how you might have felt when you were playing ocarina, bet you thought that would go down in history when you played it. Know I did dude...



placidcasual commented on Illegal Nintendo Clones Are Running Rampant On...:

Legally this should be the same as selling counterfeit goods from a bricks & mortar shop. If you're getting money from selling items then it should be at least partially your responsibility to ensure they're not dodgy rip-offs. Sadly it seems online stores don't have to take any responsibility for whats sold in their shops unless someone complains. Don't think its right in my opinion...

@AhabSpampurse i'm in cardiff too and walking around town is great for streetpasses. There's a coffee shop down the road from my house that has a hotspot too. Animal crossing seems to have made a lot more people take their systems out with them. Weirdly I seem to get more passes in cardiff than I do in central london whenever I go there...
