west72 commented on WiiWare Launches In Europe:

Great line up, i've just been playing Lost winds and have to say that'sbetter than most of the full price games that are out there.

Shame the Dr Mario is online only, i don't have any friends who have the full version, so makes the demo a bit worthless. Why didn't they do a single player demo.



west72 commented on WiiWare needs a storage solution NOW!:

The only problem i can see with the wii using the SD card to play games off is the speed. I recently had to copy some N64 games across due to having no space for the Mario Kart Channel and it took forever to copy over.

Nintendo are shooting their self’s in the foot by not sorting this out. First VC games, now Wiiware and soon downloadable demos, it's not only the avid gamer who is going to have problems. It's going to be everyone the longer this goes on for and then Nintendo will have big problems, because the last thing they need are loads of parents on the phone to helpdesks because little jimmy can't download the new Wiiware game he wants because he doesn't have enough room.

Nintendo only have to look at the success of VC to know that people must be having problems and they just seem to be burying their head in the sand or they already have some great device ready and waiting for E3 to unveil, then only to tell us it will be out next year .



west72 commented on European release dates for WiiWare and Nintend...:

All sounds great, but there is still no answer to the space issue. All this great new stuff and nowhere to put it. It's such a pain having to move games onto my SD card and then back again when i want to play them. Nintendo should have sorted this out first.



west72 commented on Defend Your Castle Dated - Screens Also Released:

Looks good and nice price, but i wonder how big it will be to download. I have no space left on my Wii and hate having to transfer stuff to my SD card. I hope Nintendo give us a nice suprise when WiiWare comes out.



west72 commented on Nintendo of Europe relaunches with Wii Points ...:

Since the site update i have also noticed that you now only get 200 stars when you register a game and not the 250 you used to get. Seems that Nintendo are cutting down on on the amount of stars they are giving out. I also think that you no longer get the 5 stars a day for logging on to the site.



west72 commented on EU VC Releases - 16th November - Double Dribble:

Bad week, but did find this on the Nintendo site...looks like we were going to get 2 games this week, still a bit poor.

Please note

A second Virtual Console game was due to be released this week; however it failed to meet our technical standards because it was found to be incompatible with certain TVs when using a Component AV cable. As we are committed to releasing all new Virtual Console games with 100% component compatibility, we have decided to delay the release of this game until these technical standards are met.
