Re: Just been given a 2DS XL

Whatever you do, don't attempt to remove the Nintendo Network ID, as that's what downloads are tied to. I think games are only tied to a NNID if an NNID has been created, however games can be downloaded to the system without one. I recently bought a New 3DS XL with games installed and £20 credit bu...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Not including most of the normal nintendo games, how many games out of the 2000 on switch are any good Loads, certainly enough. I can't think of too many great non-Nintendo related exclusives, if that matters to you? Marvel Alliance 3 springs to mind. Astral Chain is published by Nintendo but was m...

Re: Just been given a 2DS XL

This was a very generous gift from my father and stepmother. It's used with 4 games (Super Mario Maker, Pokemon Ultramoon and Miitopia on cards and Mario Kart 7 on the Micro-SD card). The hardware seems to be working fine and I've had a lot of fun with it this afternoon. One drawback is that online...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Goldeneye 007 ONLINE, on the Wii! :shock:

Was mindblown to discover this was still up and running 9 years later, not many players but I did get quite a few rounds of 8 player team deathmatches.

Re: Ebay is flooded with repros. Can anything be done?

I have no problem with repros. They make it possible to buy games like Conker's Bad Fur Day or Turtles in Time without needing to raid my pension fund. However, there are two caveats: firstly, the game must work. Particularly with battery-backed games, many of the repros don't offer the functionali...

Re: Today

My car's power steering randomly failed this morning. Garage said it would cost more to fix than it's worth so looks like I'm going to have to scrap it and eat a significant loss. Just had it serviced, and had all new brake pads and plates fitted a few months ago aswell. Gutted.

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

Link's Awakening remake for the Switch. Really good old school Zelda with a lovely fresh coat of paint. The dungeon maker stuff is a decent extra addition too.

Re: Ebay is flooded with repros. Can anything be done?

But then if the packaging is just some printed card and folded plastic what's the difference? Not defending the cloners, more the absurdity of paying a premium for packaging? The quality usually isn't as good, both the materials and the print. And then as Megamixer said, most collectors want to buy...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Astral Chain, really enjoying this so far, top stuff from Platinum Games and Nintendo. I've just got to this game, only a few hours in but have to say am really enjoying it! Wonderfully stylist, Platinum Games definitely seem to have some really talented artists working for them. Music is really go...

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

AEW Dynamite- Pretty good debut episode for the new promotion. ITV botched it a bit editing out some stuff, but I'll certainly be watching every week. Its up on ITV Hub if anyone wants to check it out. Yeah it was good, I noticed WWE stepped their game up with Smackdown too, one of their best TV sh...

Re: Ebay is flooded with repros. Can anything be done?

"And despite your experience you think Ebay doesn't object to unauthorised reproduction?" No that's not what I think. I think there is a disparity between how they dealt with me and how they dealt with the obvious bootleggers I reported days ago. Don't you? Yes, but you openly admitted to selling D...

Re: Ebay is flooded with repros. Can anything be done?

Last year I tried to sell a DVDR of an MMA event that I personally filmed and had the rights to manufacture and sell. My listing was removed after 8 hours and I was told that sales of unauthorised reproduction of copyright materials wasn't allowed. And despite your experience you think Ebay doesn't...

Re: Ebay is flooded with repros. Can anything be done?

I've sent links to a bunch of the listings to nintendo directly but they haven't replied to my email yet and all the sellers I reported to them and eBay are still active. I'm starting to think that if Nintendo doesn't care about this, why should I? It's their IP being ripped off. I'm not sure why t...

Re: Ebay is flooded with repros. Can anything be done?

Like I said it can take time, the first thing ebay would likely do is open a dialogue with the seller.

What you're saying is like saying just because murders happen, and murderers don't always get caught/convicted, must mean the police are ok with it.

Re: Ebay is flooded with repros. Can anything be done?

Not very. So if it's too difficult for them to deal with, they need to stop saying that they don't allow the sale of counterfeit goods. It's like a restaurant owner saying he doesn't allow people to bring their own food in to eat at his tables but being overwhelmed when it happens and being unable ...
