unrandomsam commented on Month Of Kirby: Kirby's Lost Levels:

Everybody seems to have a constantly work on sequels.

I quite like Air Ride and Dream Course. Really liked Adventure Wii (Return to Dreamland) but I am not bothered for another just yet the delay was about right last time.



unrandomsam commented on The North American Version Of Tomodachi Life W...:

@Klunk23 Obvious solution to that is to put a literal English translation into the Japanese release. Save work for Nintendo of America when they choose to butcher the original artistic vision and let people who want something as close as possible to the original have what they want. (Think that happens with PSP/Vita games a fair bit. Even when they are going to get a proper localisation).



unrandomsam commented on Vita Overtakes 3DS in Tough Week for Japanese ...:

@MC808 I know at least 4 or 5 people who bought a PS2 and only a handful of games and used it as a DVD player mostly. It was a rubbish system. (Jagged Lines that was a problem that only the PS2 had to that extent. Dreamcast / Xbox / Gamecube were fine.) It does have Gradius V though.



unrandomsam commented on Talking Point: Amazon Fire TV is an Early Warn...:

@memoryman3 The Ouya hasn't failed that badly because they are making another. If they are selling them at a profit not spending loads on marketing etc then it will be fine.

Amazon is a different thing entirely. They are more like Microsoft in that they can subsidise anything from elsewhere if necessary and for as long as they need to.



unrandomsam commented on Talking Point: Amazon Fire TV is an Early Warn...:

Even with just the Sega stuff. (Sonic CD/Sonic/Sonic 2/Chu Chu Rocket/Crazy Taxi /Jet Set Radio/Super Monkey Ball 2/Sonic 4 both parts/After Burner Climax and the Dotemu stuff which is Neo Geo and Arcade ports. It is a no brainer just because the cost of the system and everything for it costs so much less than even junk NES versions. (I already subscribe to prime). If they manage to get others on board that currently only do iOS then it will be even better. Depends what Amazon chooses to do. (Look at the amount of capacity they are adding each day to AWS).

They seem to be doing better when it comes to the Amazon tablets against Apple than say Microsoft has done trying to break into the smartphone market.



unrandomsam commented on Nintendo Confirms Five Games That'll be Playab...:

@Lance168 No way they could buy Sega Sammy at the moment. They are raking it in. If current trends continue come the next gen Sega would be better positioned than NIntendo to make a new system. (Won't happen though.)

No idea about the others. Think Capcom would be more than people think to buy.



unrandomsam commented on Microsoft's Ken Lobb: Metroid Prime Wouldn't H...:

@JaxonH It is a choice they make though. Amazon chooses to only be bothered about themselves and the final customer. Nintendo chooses to be good to everybody (Even the retailers who are basically totally ripping them off by only stocking used) except the final customer.

Cannot think of many fans who asked for GBA on Wii U. Gamecube / N64 yes but not GBA. No way was that exactly what people asked for.

If they just reverted the difficulty wholesale to GBA / Gamecube levels that would be enough for me but as it is all I get is less and less out of it.



unrandomsam commented on Nintendo Announces a Charming New Princess Pea...:

@SahashraLA Not sure. To milk it would be to provide all the things that go with it (Nunchuck / Wheel / Classic Controller / Classic Controller Pro / Pro Controller / Wii Zapper / Balance Board). Also at the moment the Mario and Luigi ones are cheaper in the UK than the normal ones. (Nearly half price).



unrandomsam commented on Nintendo of America is Cutting the Price of Fi...:

@Zombie_Barioth All that seems to happen these days with the select games is when it comes to Retail the used places (Who these days is basically everyone on the High Street who stocks games at all) sell it for a tiny bit less (And still only stock used). That didn't used to be a problem. (Used was separate from new and most people bought new). At least that is how it is in the UK. Amazon is the only one who tries to keep new stock.



unrandomsam commented on Nintendo of America is Cutting the Price of Fi...:

@DESS-M-8 Wii has not been removed from any UK Supermarkets that are close to where I live. Asda has as much Wii as DS and 3DS combined (And zero Wii U). Tesco has a bit of Wii / Wii U / 3DS / DS (Not much of any). Sainsbury's has just a clearance balanced board / Wii fit bundle on clearance. (No DS or 3DS whatsoever).

If you mean Wii U Tesco still stocks it.



unrandomsam commented on Guacamelee! Developer Stirring Up A New Title,...:

I would have liked it much more if I didn't feel like I wasting so much time. (I like the way La Mulana does Metroidvania don't like emptiness).

Don't like it when button mashing works either. (That part of Rondo of Blood with Richter seems to be ignored by Metroidvania's generally).



unrandomsam commented on Play: We'll Be Doing The Twitch Thing With Mar...:

Megaman 1-6 no damage (Get hit and start again).

Milon's Secret Castle.

Wii U Just Dance (Where you can see the participants).

Kidz Bop Dance Party! The Video Game (Only 1/10 I can find on the site).

Dragon's Lair Trilogy (Better to watch than to play in many ways).

Gunlord (Neo Geo MVS). Mentioned before that you have played the hell out of it (And I hope it sells well when it finally released).



unrandomsam commented on Nintendo Titles Struggle for a Presence in UK ...:

@element187 They won't pull out of the UK. People are paying money for 3DS games problem is Game (Nintendo's preferred partner who they give a monopoly on eshop codes to) only stocks used 3DS games. Wii U is different it is totally tanking (Like the Vita). Best Wii U games new are the same cost as a used 3DS game from 2011. Best Vita exclusives are less than stuff like Mario Party / Mario Tennis Open / Yoshi's New Island. The problem with the 3DS is that none of the money is going to Nintendo (Or nowhere near enough).

@smikey HMV are the obvious people to partner with seen as they have totally exited the used market. (With similar benefits as they get from the music / movie publishers).



unrandomsam commented on Nintendo Titles Struggle for a Presence in UK ...:

@Sentinator Sega still does have a good Japanese arcade division. Dunno whether that counts when it comes to them saying they only care about Sonic / Total War / Football Manager / Aliens (????). Even in the massively neglected seaside Arcade's in the UK there is nearly all Sega stuff.



unrandomsam commented on Nintendo Download: 17th April (Europe):

@ricklongo No idea about the Wii U one the 3DS one plays quite a bit like the Master System Castle of Illusion though. (I paid about the same price for the cart and I think it was worth it). I only played one level at a time and I didn't really get bored of it.



unrandomsam commented on Capcom Investing $80 Million in Two New R & D ...:

This is what they should be doing. Ignore the West do what they are good at. Make another Ghosts n Goblins game.

(It probably isn't what they should be doing but what I personally want them to be doing is making games that would work as a coin-op. Difficult but possible where you love it start to finish).



unrandomsam commented on Nintendo Launches 3DS XL "Recommended Software...:

@XFsWorld The circlepad on the 2DS is amazing. (At least the demo unit I tried on Friday.) Obviously the 2DS has other issues but I suspect there will be a new hardware revision before too long. If a 3DS XL revision comes out with that circle pad I am definitely changing mine.



unrandomsam commented on Nintendo of America is Cutting the Price of Fi...:

Is this a 20$ discount or a 10$ discount ? (Or 50%).

(If they go on at £14.99 or £19.99 that might make things interesting - good ones at £19.99 the ones that the carts are under £10 at £14.99).

I always get much more out of digital games. (I change carts when I finish something and that is all normally).



unrandomsam commented on Nintendo of America is Cutting the Price of Fi...:

As it stands currently Starfox is £10 and Pilotwings Resort is £7 for the cartridge brand new. Especially Starfox I would rather have digitally but not at £40. (It is the only game I know of other than Mario Party with a proper download play mode).
