stanleecroup commented on Poll: Is Splatoon a Blockbuster That'll Help R...:

I don't really understand why the wii u has not been as successful as the wii maybe that in isself is the problem and 3rd party developers not supporting the wiiu because its easier to churn out the same games on other less inative consoles thus keeping costs down and profit high. Just a guess.

but the real point I want to make is how many times has it been said that will this new zelda mario mario kart smash etc game will revive the wii u. Its dead unfortunately. even Nintendo see that by announcing a new console is been developed.

How many times can you flog a dead horse.

mean while the 3ds family is doing welll but is being neglected by Nintendo whilst they have tryed to save the wii u with virtual console stuff etc.

stanleecroup commented on Head Teachers in the UK Issue Warning to Paren...:

I haven't read all of the comments on this because there are so many. I apologise if I'm repeating others.

I feel the best way to address the issue of children playing inappropriate games could be achieved in two ways.

1 change legislation making it illegal to sell a video game rated for adults to a parent if suspected it is for a child. I know that this is not fool proof. Publishers and retailer's not be allowed to advertise adult games in childrens media and sell related mercandise In toy shops etc. I have seen terminator and halo toys in toys r us. Games for adults could be shelved in shops in an adult only section. Thi s will give unaware people buying games for children a clear guide to whats not appropriate.

2 buying games via the Internet. This is harder to regulate and relies on parent responsibility. My son likes lego and wanted to join the lego club online. To do this I had to give my email address and lego then contacted me directly to ensure that I was who I said I Was and give permission for my son to use the site and gave me lots of info on parental settings to keep children safe on the internet. Lots more companies should do this.

I think that the police and crown prosecution service should take offenders to court and the consequences be high to deter offences in the first place. How this is done I havent the legal background to say however the safety of children from material designed for adults should be paramount.
This is not an anti freedom of speach issue or that when i was a kid i saw adult things and it didnt hurt me. we have childrens categorys and adult categories for a reason and its not just a moral one. check out information on child and adult development and understanding .

Finally children shoud be allowed to be children theres plenty of time to be spent in the adult world later.

Thanks

@k8sMum you need to wake up. Politics is all around us in many different forms and Im not just taking about different ideologies. Why not have debates here about ethics and the errors of human society. If you haven't noticed there are elements of this in zelda games. If people frown upon chatting about politics anywhere then society is doomed.

Seems a lot of people are worried about this tv show of zelda. Whats wrong with you guys. Netflix has a good track record for producing good quality tv. I can’t wait for a zelda tv show. It will be amazing. Just wait and see.

stanleecroup commented on Nintendo Download: 1st January (Europe):

@JaxonH I don't hate wii u owners I don't like the fact that all the gba games are only released on wii u.
I have the ambassador games and they work perfectly fine uf not better than on an actual gba.
I wish that nintendo would share and they might make a bit of money as well.
Im not out to spite anyone and I dont tjink that no one should beable to own gba games if I can't. They should be available to all.

stanleecroup commented on Full Extent of Nintendo of Europe Job Cuts Bec...:

@ikki5 some times full time work is not available and people have to take temporary contracts to earn a living. Temporary work with no contracts is on the rise in many areas of employment especially zero hour contracts. This is not good for the working population. The only winners here are the companies who can drive down their labour costs to increase their profit margins. Its sad that people who have been loyal to companies get treates like this.

Its about f time nintendo pulled its smelly finger out of its conservative ass and bought us some metroid games. Four long years of void?

No wonder nintendo are struggling to make any money they dont give gamers what they want

stanleecroup commented on Talking Point: What We Want To See From Ninten...:

@zool I agree. I love the 3d on the 3ds and get pissed off when developers, especially nintendo don't use it in games. What is all rhis 2.5 nonsense. I want 3d on the 3ds I paid nearly 200 pounds for and 30 to 40 pounds per game.

3d in games makes way for interesting dynamics and game play, such as in mario 3ds land. Problem lies with lazy game manufacturers who can't be bothered or have no imagination when designing games.

I love the 3ds maybe nintendo should start loving it too. Seems that the hand held always plays second fiddle to the home console too.

stanleecroup commented on The Denpa Men 3: The Rise of Digitoll Is Sprea...:

Any one who has not played any dempa men games is really missing out. For under a tenner these games are a gem. The first one is very long and fun.after you complete the game theres even more adventures to do. The second game adds new sruff and more story and is land based and you can grow stuff and battle other players dempa men. Great great games. I would pay more for them. Better value here than some full price titles.
Can't wait for third game ace

stanleecroup commented on UK Retailer GAME to Open Two Pre-Owned Only St...:

Game are crap. The store in telford rarely has new games. Also I dont understand why people trade games when you get so little back. Game and like stores are parasites and damage game industry. I like be be able to go in a store and see lots of diff new games not old ones with a few quid off the price of a new one.
