ryando commented on Site News: Nintendo Life's Alex Olney Revealed...:

Yeah, Alex is great. It's all the more impressive when you consider there's not a great deal to talk about regarding Nintendo on a day to day basis. My only concern is that he usually seems a little drunk. Nintendo Lifes very own Des O'Connor at Eurovision, if you will. My wife thinks he looks like me to point that she refers to him as my cousin. So, congratulations to my lovely cousin Alex, I guess! (I have also been drinking).



ryando commented on Talking Point: Star Fox Zero's Delay Could Be ...:

The only part where I disagree is saying "ruining the Christmases of 10 million Wii U owners matter little". To me, Wii U owners represent the "Nintendo Faithful". The core supporters the company relies on when the general gaming population turns it's back. The people who will be in line on day one when new Nintendo hardware is released. Giving these people another reason the regret buying a Wii U will become another hurdle for the NX.
Personally, I got my WIi U day one, never regretted it and am really looking forward to Xenoblade X this Christmas but I'll probably "wait and see" on the NX though.



ryando commented on Super Mario Maker DLC Confirmed, Famitsu's Mas...:

More skins wouldn't interest me as I've got plenty of amiibo, more would feel excessive. Slopes and Tanooki/Frog suits would be welcome but rather as a free update. I was a little miffed to learn they wouldn't be included. DLC I'd definitely purchase would be more game themes, such as Super Mario 2 or either of the Mario Land games but I'm not really expecting that. Mario Land Maker could be a 3DS game though one day.



ryando commented on Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson Bursts Out Onto ...:

The reason I don't think we should be offended by this game is, if one man wants to get his pleasures from the wrist work (character design, programming) of another man, let him. Doesn't work for me though. While playing Project X Zone I found the jiggling to be distracting and insulting. Distracting because I was trying to time combos but Morigans chest kept jiggling across the screen. Insulting because I can enjoy a game on its own merits without the guys who made it making constant appeals to my, errrm, nods at crotch.



ryando commented on Tributes and an Outpouring of Respect Are Shar...:

Very sad news to begin the week. My favourite memory of Iwata was when he chose to take a 50% pay cut, rather than lay off any staff. Surely a sign of his commitment and dedication to his staff and Nintendo. I've just read that he will be buried on the 17th, the same day as my wedding. Feel that I may include him in the thank yous for my speech.



ryando commented on Two More New Weapons Coming To Splatoon Tomorrow:

It's great that they are drip feeding weapons and modes for us. Not only does the game get more exposure in articles like this but it maintains interest amongst the early adopters. The last thing an online shooter needs is a really busy first month and then for the the audience to stop playing.



ryando commented on Nintendo's Official UK Store Restocks on Some ...:

I seem to have ordered a Shulk minutes ago, although rather than saying "in stock" my email tells me "stock will be depatched as soon as we receive it from our supplier". Maybe i'll get a cancellation message soon.



ryando commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Tackles Metroid Prime: Federa...:

I'm glad for Federation Force and I hope it expands the Metroid universe in ways that benefit future games. However, I don't think they should have used the Prime branding. Metroid Chibi Federation Force could have been a fresh start for the series.



ryando commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Hints at Smaller New Nintendo...:

While it was nice having camera control in Majoras Mask and faster loading times in Smash, I'm really hoping I didn't buy a N3DS just for Xenoblade 3D. Surely they haven't made a whole new system with only one exclusive game!



ryando commented on BBC iPlayer Finally Arrives On The Wii U eShop:

Actually, I find BBC news to be non biased. Hence why so many right wingers accuse them of left wing bias and vice versa. Regarding Top Gear, Clarkson is the only person to blame for that. He is a man who believes he is the centre of the universe and as such, all revolves around him. What he failed to realise is, hotel staff have families, homes or lives to go back to. Walking into a hotel and punching a colleague because the kitchen is closed is unacceptable behavior. Thats not how we do things in Britain. Rather than thank his viewers for their support, maybe he should be apologising to them.

This is the BBC defence thread, right?



ryando commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 2 Available to Download ...:

For some reason, it will only let me update if it can save to the system memory so I've got to move a load of games to my HDD. I don't understand why the update can't be saved to the HDD. At least I get some extra faffing to do.
