And European gamers get about 4 lousy discounts... really Nintendo...
You North American gamers don't know how good you have it. You complain about an occasional E.U. exclusivity but you're the ones having lots of deals, multiple times a year. I'd rather have multiple 5 to 10 Euro discounts a year instead of one collectible item collecting dust somewhere.

I hate region locking so....awfully....much!!

But why did Humble Bundle do this? Why not set up an equal EU deal? They limit themselves to serving only half of the Western markets, their biggest customers. They also leave a lot of people disappointed.

Mwahahahaha :D
I love how my previous comment was modded :D
Don't think that the younger readers amoung us get it, but I appologize choise of words could have been a bit more appropriate indeed. Surely you mean Jon Stark? ;)

Ah...The Virtual Console, the unappreciated Jon Snow of Nintendo....
I love it to bits but it LACKS GAMES!! It needs way more titles!! I want more NES, SNES, Mega Drive, TG and Neo Geo games.... LOTS MORE!!! And I am willing to pay!! COME ON NINTENDO!!!
Also, GBA and DS games have no place on the Wii U. The native resolution is way to low to enjoy it on my 55" TV.

I really don't get it. EVERYBODY is complaining about the lack of games. Why isn't Nintendo doing anything?

I'm happy with N64 titles, really I am!! But....why the oh so sloooooooow pace of NES and SNES title releases. We all want more and they would sell great, so why doesn't Nintendo do it? And where are the Mega Drive / Genesis titles? The VC platform can do so much better if only there would be more titles. 4-5 Titles on a weekly basis, just like in the beginning when the Wii launched in 2006 and throughout 2007.

TL;DR: Disappointed yet again.

Aria of Sorrow is a great game! belongs...ON THE 3DS!!! Why bring bring handheld games with a native resolution of 240 x 140 to the Wii U and tv's which support 8 times that resolution? I've seen it, it just looks like pixel soup!! Yes, you can play it on the gamepad but most of us play it on the TV anyway. It just don't get it....

And why....why....WHY!??!?! aren't there more NES and SNES games being released for the Wii U? Retro gamers want them so badly and Nintendo is just like; NOPE!! Why oh why :(



Vriess commented on Nintendo Download: 12th March (Europe):

VC games harming the sales of indie games? Nonsense! People tend to think twice when spending €50 on a single game, but not when it comes to VC titles at €5 to €8 a piece. It's Nintendo's fault for not giving certain titles enough exposure in the eShops and to making the search for older titles by category practically impossible.

If the eShop did a better job at presenting the games and making it easier to search



Vriess commented on Nintendo Download: 12th March (Europe):

I'm gonna give Streets of Rage 3D a whirl. Hoping for part 2 soon. That one is the best!

Edit: Of course!! First one of those obligatory stability patches before being allowed access to the eShop. Typical!!! GRRRRRRRR :X

And here in Europe?

  • a Mario cap
  • stickers or wallpapers...
  • (3)DS cartridge holders,
  • a (3)DS pouch in different colors
  • a couple of posters and mobile ringtones,
  • the Mario Galaxy OST (edit: not there anymore)
  • Nintendo Points cards.....
    The same like we've had SINCE YEARS! Why Nintendo...WHY?!?!


Vriess commented on Nintendo Download: 19th February (Europe):

Why are ALL of the Lego games are on sale regularly except for City Undercover?? It costs 60 euros in the eShop since it's release, nearly two years ago. Why? The same goes for Scribblenauts Unlimited btw.
