"Meh" doesn't cut it...I want to say other things to express my discontent about this weeks offering but my post will be removed if I do. thought about it, so I basically said it anyway!



Vriess commented on PDP GameCube-Style Wired Fight Pads for Donkey...:

They're not yet listed on Amazon France yet. I like the Link-Triforce one :)

What din't you like exactly? Is it the overall built quality, or the feel of the sticks and buttons specifically? The shape of the grips seems a bit odd to me.

What happened to Hori? Some of my best 3rd party controllers are theirs. They produced tons of stuff, way back in the day, but we hardly see any products anymore.

I agree with you opinion about the Xbox360 controller, but for me it's a nostalgia thing. Can't help it. I remember every detail of the day that I bought my Gamecube. The PDP controller is basically wireless too. You plug it into a Wiimote.



Vriess commented on Nintendo Download: 27th November (Europe):

Also, no interest in Smash or Amiibo. For the Wii U I'm looking forward to Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Zelda Wii U and a couple of indies. I'll buy a PS4 eventually, but probably not before Uncharted 4 and/or The Last Guardian have come out. I've had my share of grievances with Steam, but I can't help but emptying my bank account when the Steam sales start. I am patient, never buy new games but wait a couple of months and then buy 15-20 games for less then 100 Euros! ;) Fallout 4, assuming that it comes out next year, will be the only game I'll be buying full price on Steam.



Vriess commented on Nintendo Download: 27th November (Europe):

Hahaha. Same thing here. I stock up on PC games during the Steam sales and then have to many games to play. Luxury problem yo! ;)

On the PS3 I still want to play/finish Red Dead Redeption, Okami HD, Ico, Shadow of the Colossus and Ni No Kuni. Flower is nice and relaxing. If you haven't yet, then be sure to play The Last of Us and Journey!!

The one problem with all these great games is....having hardly enough time to play them :(



Vriess commented on Nintendo Download: 27th November (Europe):

This week is not even that bad! Still, I bought Luigi's Mansion 2 and Kirby Triple Deluxe this week so I'll have to take it easy on the download. Also, I'm holding off for a potential eShop spending frenzy this Christmas.



Vriess commented on Shigeru Miyamoto is Now 62 Years Old:

Retirement age creeping up.... Don't he dare! Not that he doesn't deserve it, he does, but we don't want to miss him just yet :S




Vriess commented on Feature: These Are The Mario Kart 8 DLC Packs ...:

Nope, nope, nope and nope. Almost all ideas would deviate way to much from the original Mario Kart concept. To me, they would feel really out of place. Let's see how things work out with the first two DLC packs. It's the first time that characters outside of Mario games are going to be introduced to a MK game, let's not get all overboard by adding more. Nintendo should be careful with it's franchises as to not dilute them.



Vriess commented on Feature: What We Want to See in the November N...:

Expecting a formal apology for not releasing enough VC games and the promise of at least 2 titles a week from now on. Okay, not what we're gonna get, but it's what I want!

Oh, and an announcement of Majora's Mask 3D would be nice.



Vriess commented on Nintendo Download: 6th November (Europe):

One of the many discounts? What....this week, or next week? I'm not seeing MANY discounts, just a couple and they are not that great.

The Swapper for 15 Euros !?!?! Great game, but that price is ridiculous! It came out like....18 months ago and can be picked up for peanuts on Steam or in a Humble Bundle.

I'll be buying Mega Man 7.



Vriess commented on 3DS Homebrew Hacker Makes Progress on New Nint...:

When people start using gaming hardware for other things then it's intended purpose, the manufacturers take measures which affect the user experience for all consumers.

I check the eShop on my 3DS about twice a month and a lot of times I'm presented with a mandatory "stability" update and I find this annoying. So it's up to me to ignore it and pretend that it's not an issue? Hackers and modders should go play with rooted smartphones and PC's and leave gaming hardware alone.

Also, I think that most EULAs (which are legally binding) nowadays include sections covering "other use" and that manufacturers don't allow this. Consumers have to agree to these terms in order to start using the hardware. Hackers and modders are in breach of the EULA and thus it is illegal what they are doing. There, no more room for excuses.



Vriess commented on Nintendo Download: 16th October (Europe):

Nothing for me this week, but I can't complain about the amount of releases this week. Looking good!

The certification process takes about 3-4 weeks and it's been about 3 weeks now. I think the game will be released before the end of the month.
