thedanman64 commented on The Nintendo 64 is Now 18 Years Old in Japan:

I remember getting a N64 on my 5th birthday. I wasn't aware what a N64 was at the time (I'd only heard of the playstation) but once it was plugged in and Super Mario 64 started up, i suddenly knew what a N64 was.

It was the greatest console of all time.



thedanman64 commented on Feature: How Rik Mayall Helped Bring Anarchy T...:

I'm still in shock that he's gone.
Bottom and Young Ones are two of the greatest shows on telly. He was always my favourite comedy actor and the fact he did all these adverts (don't worry IxC, i said advert) just makes me love him even more.

Thanks for all laughs Rik.



thedanman64 commented on Site News: How was 2013 for Nintendo Life?:

When it comes to the world of Nintendo, this site is my only trustworthy source.
What I like about Nintendo Life is how positive it is. Not just from the staff, but from it's users as well. People just seem to get along so well and you really get the sense that everyone here loves Nintendo as much as you do.

I would also like to say thank you to all the staff members, for doing such an outstanding job with this site. Your commitment to bringing us all the latest news and reviews is extraordinary. You all work so hard for us, that I'm glad it hasn't gone unnoticed by the N Life community. Just reading some of the comments on this article really shows what Nintendo Life means to us all.

Once again, thank you to everyone at Nintendo Life. Have a happy new year and here's to another successful year for N Life!



thedanman64 commented on Feature: A Supersonic History of Sonic Cartoons:

Reading this article has made me think back to all the games that were turned into cartoons. Legend of Zelda, Donkey Kong Country, Rayman, Earthworm Jim. Even Mortal Kombat got it's own cartoon! If a game was popular enough, you could pretty much guarantee it would get a TV series.

If there's one game I'd love to see a TV series of, it'd have to be Phoenix Wright. I'm really surprised there hasn't been an anime series of it. Who knows, maybe one day...



thedanman64 commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo Game Boy:

Still got my old GB lying around. The screen cover has fallen off and it's got the same vertical line issue. But apart from that, it still works as well as it did 20 years ago. It's amazing to see the old Boy in action and just realise how far we've come in the last couple of decades. Nowadays, portable consoles boast touch screens, 3D screens, built-in cameras, AR technology etc. But back when you were playing a Game Boy, you had to play in a brightly lit room otherwise you wouldn't be able to see the screen clearly.

I feel old now.



thedanman64 commented on Wii U Can be Used as a Portable Home Console:

Not sure if this truly practical. Sure,it's good for long journeys, but what happens when you want to go to the toilet? You'll leave it on it's own, meaning there's a good chance that someone will steal it. Not to mention you'll probably get funny looks while playing it.

I think i'll stick to the 3DS for my portabe gaming needs.



thedanman64 commented on Review: Samurai G (3DS eShop):

What else have UFO Interactive released?
Chuck E Cheese Arcade Room ( 1/10 stars)
Retro Pocket (4/10 stars)
Johnny Kung Fu (4/10 stars)
And now this.

Well done UFO. That's quite the reputation you're building there.



thedanman64 commented on Site News: James Finds a Warp Zone:

Sad to see you go James. You've been the most professional, realiable and just downright brilliant editor I've ever seen. Not once did I see anything to contradict that.

Thanks for everything you've done and I wish you all the best at Nintendo. No doubt, you'll enjoy it!



thedanman64 commented on Nintendo Posts First Ever Annual Loss:

Well, at least they're finally gaining momentium with the 3DS. I'm sure profits will go through the roof next financial year.

Besides, if Nintendo Gamer is to be belived, they have enough money to get through any losses till 2051! Nintendo won't be going anywhere for a while.



thedanman64 commented on Feature: Bargain Bin DS Games:

I mananged to get Super Street Fighter 4 3D from GAME for just 98p! It was completely new and sealed. Turns out they had overstocked on Street Fighter and were trying to get rid of them as quickly as possible.



thedanman64 commented on Review: I Must Run! (DSiWare):

I played this as a Mini on PSP. It's good but it's damn hard! Still can't get past level 2. Mind you, I'm playing on the old PSP-1000 and because the screen suffers from 'ghosting' it makes it more difficult to tell which obstacles are coming up.



thedanman64 commented on Feature: The Super Mario Renaissance:

This is why I love Mario games. It simply appeals to everyone. We hardcore players may enjoy the 3D mario games, but with the 2D games EVERYONE can play them. It's one of the few games that you would play with your family and actually enjoy it.

As for looking back on Mario games, Super Mario 64 will always be my favourite. I had played a couple games before Mario 64, but it was that game that really got me into gaming.



thedanman64 commented on SEGA: "Sonic VC Games Will Stay in Europe":

We can all breathe easy now.
I think the reason for removing the games from Japan's VC was because the Mega Drive was never as popular there as it was in western countries. Hence, not a lot people played Sonic. So when they remove it, not many Japanese players will miss them.



thedanman64 commented on Hands On: Hyperkin SupaBoy Portable SNES:

Does it still play games that use the Super FX chip? (Starfox, Yoshi's Island and Doom used it) I heard somewhere that it isn't easy to emulate games that use it, which would explain why these games aren't on Virtual Console.
