  1. Mario Kart 8

    From GAF. Chucklesome Anti-Gravity trailer:
  2. Wii U General Discussion

    Is the Eldon Square store still godly though? Used to love going in there for gaming sessions on the couches. A really nice setup if ever I saw one.
  3. General Gaming Sales/Charts Discussion

    A girl at work was talking about taking her son to the Watch Dogs midnight launch at a local supermarket. She was complaining about it being £50 and that you play a cyber terrorist. Erm, don't let your kid buy it then? Idiot-parenting that its best. Ubisoft are booming tbf and it's great to see them still on the WiiU. How long for is another matter though. They have successfully captured what people refer to as the 18-25 market, but haven't forgot their creative heritage through titles such as Rayman and Child of Light. They also make damn good games! I also think that due to the support given by their government to embrace the medium of videogames, their business is solid and is paying dividends. It's amazing how some governments will support their industries. It's a shame that the UK didn't do enough to support their huge pool of talent, resulting in massive losses to its software developers.
  4. Wii U General Discussion

    Yeah I find that strange as they now have the two pinball machines and walls of plushy dolls/figures. Because that's what consumers crave, right?
  5. Mario Kart 8

    If ever a game needed that quick start function.... Anyway, if you haven't seen it, we have a thread for posting your video's and pics...if you post them here we'll pick from them and post them on our social media channels. Thanks all, happy karting! : peace: http://n-europe.com/forum/showthread.php?goto=newpost&t=54756
  6. The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD

    Aaaah. Still not sure on this or Pikmin. Now I'm thinking Zelda!
  7. Mario Kart 8

    In regards to items ruining the game, are we talking about Grand Prix mode only? I've found that online is more about skill -- hence why the cream rises to the top in the overall points tally. Quick race mode is also fine as you can pretty much set the items as you wish. I can see the issues with GP mode as it can be brutal...especially on 150cc. But when hasn't it been? Outside of that, there are plenty of ways to customise and enjoy the game. Now we just need Battle Mode DLC and, as others have said, it will be even better!
  8. E3 2014 - All your wildest hopes and dreams

    Just give me a Disney Infinity-esque Nintendo NFC game and I'd be happy. Infinity is incredible but does, in parts lack the finesse that Nintendo bring to their 3D worlds. Packs for Mario worlds/Zelda dungeons/Metroid planets/F-Zero or Mario Kart tracks would be heavenly. You could have Arwings/Epona/Link's items/Mario power ups as items in the game. Having a Link figure in an Arwing with a Catsuit on would be worth the price of entry alone!
  9. Wii U General Discussion

    Nintendo should hold off releasing future consoles until they have a 3D Mario, Zelda or Mario Kart game ready to rock. Just shows how important these franchises are. I do think it's more to do with genres and their perceptions. Gamers seem to require racers/sports games/shooters and epic 3D worlds to explore. 2D platformers and party games obviously don't shift consoles anymore.
  10. Mario Kart 8

    @RedShell @dazzybee @Jimbob It does indeed load your friends after a wait. This time is for the Mario Stadium track.
  11. Mario Kart 8

    Improved time...then friends don't appear as you guys aren't in the same time bracket. Yeah...totally borked!
  12. Mario Kart 8

    Shows me as top amongst friends. Seems cool. Not sure what you mean?
  13. Mario Kart 8

    Saw this and thought of you hah...
  14. Mario Kart 8

    May just need to give it another chance. Not an RTS fan. I loved Wind Waker but had to use an action replay disk back in the day to do the Triforce hunt. Think I may go for WW again if it's better. : peace:
  15. Mario Kart 8

    Totally can't decide between WW and Pikmin for the free game. Loved Windwaker on the GC until the dire triforce hunt. Couldn't get into Pikmin on the GC/Wii but did enjoy the Nintendoland version immensely. Not fussed or own the other games. Help an N-E brah out! Also: bananas have increased in size since GM crop dusting started in the Mushroom kingdom....
  16. Hhhhhhng. Pretty exciting announcement...
  17. Mario Kart 8

    I played a good battle game in the toad harbour map. Chaos as folk were teaming up in the 'village' part. Was good fun but still not a patch on the arenas. I'm sure they'll come via DLC. Nintendo need to prolong the life of their releases afterall. And the Mercedes DLC is surely just the start. Yeah, the game is a masterpiece though. Second time I've felt like I'm playing something technically outstanding on the system..pipping the asset depth seen in DKCTF. I actually like the GamePad integration (the screens down the side) and have had the pad below the TV with the map on it. Pro controller fits like a leather racing glove for this game though. Think I'll pick up a wheel for gf at the weekend though. Always fun for the casuals. Also: time-trials should be like digital crack. Here's me on my favourite track:
  18. Mario Kart 8

    I was 5th...my NNID is Mark.
  19. Mario Kart 8

    Yeah, from first to 11th in a couple of races. MK is back and never changes lol
  20. Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

    @Rummy Isn't there like 4 USB ports on the WiiU?
  21. Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

    Glad I have two wavebirds and two normal GC controllers. Get on eBay QUICK if you haven't got one. Wavebirds will skyrocket.
  22. Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

    Sh!t. MEGATON. Nintendo seem to be 'getting' things.
  23. Mario Kart 8

    First cup, took out that blue shell. Amazing moment! The game is stunning too. So slick. Everything fits together like a Swiss clock. My childhood gaming never felt/looked THIS good...
  24. Mario Kart 8

    Yeah. The tree section is pure Golden Forest from the N64. Nintendo should release new 1080's and Wave Race titles with this engine and retro cups.
  25. The Super Mario 3D World thread

    Nintendo revealed the winners of the Super Mario 3D World drawing contest on Miiverse. Some belters! http://www.nintendo.co.jp/wiiu/aa9j/contest/ My favourites...
