My only complaint is the overall blurriness of the whole experience, which it was a little more sharp. Have you adjusted the ...

I enjoyed Nintendo Quest, hopefully when it gets a disc release there'll be a bit more of the quest on it.

unless your a collector of films and want to keep the artwork ect you could just stick the discs in a big dvd folder(but that is risky as it can scratch the dvds)
