t1redmonkey commented on Game Boy Advance Titles To Hit Wii U Virtual C...:

Disappointed they chose to release DS -and- GBA games on the Wii U instead of the 3DS...I can see why they're doing that (to try and bolster extremely poor Wii U sales I guess), but it still just doesn't feel like the right thing to do. The 3DS would've been the natural fit, and then Nintendo could've done N64/GC games on the Wii U instead.

It's actually a pretty fun '5 minute timewaster' sort of a game. Me and a few colleagues have been having a quick competition on our breaks recently to see who can get the highest score. It's not a game you can spend hours on, but then that's not what it's meant to be!



t1redmonkey commented on Nintendo States There Are "No Plans" to Bring ...:

As others here have pointed out (from Wikipedia):

Rumors of a larger model of the Nintendo 3DS being in production appeared during June 2012, when Japanese publication Nikkei wrote an article stating that the system was initially scheduled to be unveiled at E3 2012. However, Nintendo responded that these rumors were false and that the article was "entire speculation", but refrained from further commenting on the subject.Finally, on June 21, 2012, the system was announced during a Nintendo Direct presentation, and was set to launch on all major regions during the middle of the year.

Therefore I wouldn't put any weight to these denials Nintendo are coming out with regarding their games not being on smart devices in the future!



t1redmonkey commented on Mario Party: Island Tour Is Still Having a Goo...:

It's a bit frustrating that average games like the 3DS Mario Party is doing so well in the UK charts compared to other much better 3DS games. Doesn't really send out a good signal to Nintendo as to the kind of games they should make going forwards...



t1redmonkey commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Wii U Struggles Brin...:

The answer is obvious - even if it's not this gen, Nintendo should realise that portable gaming is what they do best and where they gain the biggest profit margins. There is no point trying to be profitable in the home console market at present (in the west anyway) while Sony and Microsoft are around, so just focus all future development on the portable side of the business.



t1redmonkey commented on Nintendo Download: 9th January (Europe):

Who on earth would spend £4.49 on Mario Bros which is essentially a minigame? Bit of a joke that it's more expensive than proper full length games on the VC like SMB3 (or any of the Super Mario games for that matter).



t1redmonkey commented on Nintendo Acknowledges Network Issues and Sugge...:

What a bad first impression this must be giving to all the new Nintendo console/handheld owners out there. Really poor from Nintendo, over 24 hours with basically no online functionality for the vast majority of their customers.
