  1. The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes

    Probably just my Internet then, the joys of rural living, no hardwired Internet option
  2. The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes

    Does anyone else have difficulty getting onto the servers? Way more often than not I get "error connecting to partner device" Might just be my Internet, using mobile phone hotspot (4g, ~10mbps and 50ms ping)
  3. Final Fantasy XV

    Just read a write-up of an early play of ff xv on kotaku this morning (don't have enough posts to direct link yet )
  4. PlayStation Vita Console Discussion

    I could not get into the time management aspect of it, doing one thing or the other, probably just need to spend more time at it (ironically? probably not )
  5. Best Mobile Game

    Snake on good ol 3210 without a doubt.
  6. Wii U and 3DS Gaming Bargains

    Never encountered that myself Don't order much online myself any more (limited gaming and cool stuff budget with 2 kids ) Yea, only useful with the free uk shipping alright. Agree too about access to a set of lockers, luckily I work next to a petrol station with one, its handy too since I live in the countryside and a lot of couriers won't even bother trying to find you if you don't live in town, they just leave it behind the counter of a local petrol station or something. Slightly off-topic, sorry
  7. Wii U and 3DS Gaming Bargains

    Consider opening a Parcel Motel account, great for ordering stuff from UK that won't deliver to Ireland (or for making use of free UK delivery if they charge stupid price to ROI) Seller sends it to Belfast, and Parcel Motel (run by nightline I think) send it to one of their lockers where you choose and you pick it up when it suits you then. €3.95 a go though (I think you get a couple free go's when you first sign up) so I wouldn't use it if there's any chance the company will ship stuff separately (Book Depository are brutal for that, but they do free worldwide delivery. Some amazon sellers do it too and I've been caught)
  8. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D

    I am ashamed to say I never played this first time around (was getting a ps2 in 2000 so didn't want to buy games for the "old" n64, oh how naive ) and just playing it now for the first time on VC Looking forward to the 3ds version, especially if new3dsxl (mouthful much? ) is released around the same time
  9. 3DS Console Discussion

    Got one of these emails too, would rather hold out for an xl though. €170 from aus, plus postage.
  10. Playstation Plus Free Games

    Not too upset my plus lapsed and haven't resubbed.
  11. What Did You Get For Christmas 2014?

    Got Bayonetta 1 + 2 pack, herself was disgusted when I found it in Argos for €51 after she already gave €45 for just Bayo 2 preowned in Gamestop, quick phonecall later and exchanged Not suitable for playing in front of the small kids Nice shaving soap and a stand for my safety razor and brush Couple vouchers and treats, tasty chili covered peanuts! Not a huge haul, but have 2 girls under 5 and they got a heap of stuff. Looking forward to when they're better able for consoles
  12. Wii Mode problem

    Wasn't sure where to ask this, did a search to see if it had already been discussed but didn't find anything (although I would imagine with enough rooting I'd've found something) I just bought a Wii U yesterday, set up the day 1 update overnight, all sorted. Anyways, the issue is Wii mode, I have audio and visual on the gamepad, but only audio on the TV, TV isn't going into standby mode, so it is getting something, but only a black screen showing (and I'm not in gamepad only mode :wink: ) Is there a welcome thread/topic? Nintendo fan since the original Gameboy days, first console was a mega drive, sorry followed by an N64, Gamecube, Wii, and now Wii U, and DS, DSi & 3DS (3ds got traded in against the Wii U in prep for the "New"3DS coming out, although, I've a buddy visiting from Australia at xmas... ) Thanks for any help anyway, expecting it to be a call to customer support though
  13. Wii Mode problem

    If I'd bought a xl 3ds at the time I probably wouldn't be too pushed changing to new3ds, but knowing my luck the games I want will be new3ds exclusive, so might as well upgrade I will try it on the living room tv alright, its on a hdmi pc monitor, pc connected by vga, and ps3 or wii u by hdmi, also have a surround sound with 3 hdmi inputs and 1 output, but behaves the same way either connected through the surround sound or direct to monitor. And wii u mode behaves perfectly. So, yeah, works on the TV but not the hdmi monitor. And wii u mode does work on the monitor. Weird.
