  1. Hyrule Warriors

    I remember one of my friends getting me to play Dynasty Warriors back in the day. I got bored in about 3 mins from the repetitive bashing of 2 buttons. It's like REALLY dull Double Dragon. I'm sure that some people will enjoy this but even if I did still have my Wii U then I wouldn't be picking it up. But hey, they could show footage in the future that shows that this is something quite different. It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if Nintendo felt cornered into showing it even in early development.
  2. Wii U General Discussion

    Yeah looks a lot better. Pretty surprised that they seem to be "forgetting" about Nintendo Land now that 3D World and Sports Club are out. Well... it got one clip didn't it?
  3. Is anyone else a little confused at the amount of Kirby titles that get released? He's not hugely popular internationally (apart from in Smash) and I've never seen any of them do great number although I'll be happy for someone to correct me. Overall I'm a bit disappointed that this was so Wii U heavy. I'm excited about Layton/Wright but it feels a bit "about time!" rather than "yaaaaay"
  4. General Gaming Sales/Charts Discussion

    That is true though. The fact that Nintendo wouldnt go after these franchises in any other way than posthumously is a bit scary but then again, could they? The Wii couldn't have handled any of the AAA darlings of the last generation either. It's only been because Activision have wanted to blanket the market that CoD turned up on Wii U but hats off to them for their work on the Wii. I very much doubt Nintendo game them any help. Nintendo are actually on the position now that they would need literally 3 years of investment in marketing and leveraging companies to make the right games for their console to turn this around. And it's a trap made from games like Mario being to successful. Why would they do this when all of their classics sell so well?
  5. @Goron_3 as much as I agree with a lot of what you're saying, you seems to be ignoring both Mario 3D World and Nintendoland in that assessment which would counter your argument. But you have a good point, the mix is wrong and I'm wondering how much both Mario Kart and Smash are going to highlight the iterative nature of those franchises. I'm starting to think that Nintendo are concentrating more of their development force on the 3DS, which would make a lot of strategic sense. Customers in the west do show a tendency to spend predictably on Nintendo consoles so I can understand why they are putting those franchises on the Wii U. I'm just wondering what they are going to do once they have run out? Will they leave the console to die like the Wii and just let it turn into a box that people only play Mario Kart, Smash, NSMB and M3DW on?
  6. 3DS eShop Thread

    Oh yeah, Liberation Maiden down to £4.99!
  7. That's weird. Not that it's a big deal or anything but why does Diddy look like he's got sleaves? Surely it would be easier all round if the model of him just made his arm blend straight into his wrist?
  8. StreetPass UK

    Nintendo have had a massive facelift on their StreetPass hub site which deserves a check by anyone with a 3DS. It allows people to coordinate real-life events for 3DS meetups and to create their own communities for StreetPass just like @bluey did. I'd highly recommend checking it out and hopefully you will be able to enjoy some of the great events that @Gentleben , @welsh_gamer , bluey and I have done! StreetPass UK
  9. bad stuff thread.

    I think that's the problem. My job isn't meant to be like a call centre but it's just becoming a repository for people that don't know how to JFGI
  10. bad stuff thread.

    Gradually having the good bits of my job worn away til all I have left are taking phone calls from people that really shouldn't be allowed to buy our products. Seriously who the fuck buys pieces of networking kit without even knowing how to change their own fucking IP address? My favourite today was me spending 15mins helping a customer who had me on speakerphone in a metal box and setting up a unit by committee it would seem. We finally get to a point where I ask them to scan for networks to connect the unit to and low and behold they say "Oh no... we're not on site with it yet".
  11. 3DS Console Discussion

    It's not really a surprise about the servers not being able to handle things. Poor Wii U with it's (kind estimate of) 4.5m units against a mighty 45 million units from the 3DS. The server room must have been screaming away.
  12. Wii U General Discussion

    Honestly, that game is so built up. I have no doubt in my mind that whatever they released would have been garbage based on 10 year old game mechanics with (from what we saw) pretty mediocre artwork.
  13. 3DS Console Discussion

    It's just really heavy load on the servers and they haven't dedicated enough resources to handle it. I just kept on trying every hour or so and it finally got through. Thank you for typing this. The argument was getting ridiculous.
  14. Questions

    Um, why has the General Bargains thread been locked? I might be being thick but I can't see a any particular reason and a mod hasn't posted on close.
  15. StreetPass UK

    Alrighty, so the 3DS can actually exchange information with other 3DS units when they are close by. They swap info about each others Miis and lots of games are designed to use the function as well. StreetPass Plaza actually has games entirely based off this and they have a lot of charm and are surprisingly addictive. Recently Nintendo released some new games for the Plaza that are really great as well. Check out a bit more HERE. Take Zelda for instance, when someone StreetPasses you, a shadow version of their Link turns up in your world which you can battle! Crazy stuff :-) So about the StreetPass communities, they are groups made to get people together in a local area and have fun with 3DS. It's all about multiplayer gaming and sharing in the fun with real people. For me and bluey, we created StreetPass Banbury and hosted a Pokémon tournament as a qualifier for a national tournament event. We ended up helping host that event and met some great people :-) This StreetPass UK site is a hub for all of these local groups and a way of helping people start ones of their own. It has a whole bunch of other cool features too :-)

    Update tomorrow!
  17. Mafia General Discussion Thread

    From what I've seen, I think that would be a good idea but I'm not going to lie, as someone that's just gotten back to it and been knocked out almost instantly, I'm pretty disappointed.
  18. bad stuff thread.

    Looking like it's going to take out some of the retail park then :-(
  19. bad stuff thread.

    Ummm yeah so there's a MASSIVE fire going on over the other side of Banbury near where I work :/

    Agreed and Winnning
  21. PC Gaming Discussion

    Meh.... allowed me to do some sweet shopping for my friends. There are far too many great PC games out there that I want to try and when the sales are one it's hard not to find an excuse not to buy a ton of stuff. Also I put together a wishlist that bluey could look at and not break the bank getting me some games for xmas.
  22. PC Gaming Discussion

    Was this meant to be sarcasm?
  23. I'm getting a 3DS!

    In the box is a little red leaflet (think it has the picture of a present on it). This has the number on it.
  24. Yep you heard me, they have just announced another Ace Attorney game over in Japan and simultaneously announced that they are releasing all of the original 3 as an HD pack for iOS. Beware, platform is yet to be specified. Source: http://www.famitsu.com/news/201201/29009127.html
