Re: More woe for nintendo

I honestly wonder what their next system will be like. They'll either make another Wii U-style system (Wii U2? :P ) with marginally improved specs (HD gamepad screen? Double the power?), another "core gaming" system with specs in the ballpark of PS4 and XBO or slightly better and a classic controll...

Re: Mario Kart 8

Something that does genuinely interest me and has done for a while (pretty much since Mario Kart 7 lifted the 3DS out of it's initial lull)...I think Mario Kart 8 is really good, but I don't think it's in the same league as Super Mario 3D World at all. (yeah, I know it's 2 different genres of game,...

Re: Mario Kart 8

Woah lots of negativity here! Ive been playing MK8 solid since half 4, and it FANTASTIC. I wasnt keen on Double Dash, DS, or Wii, and thought 7 was decent but thought Sonic Transformed better. MK8 is brilliant though, great new tracks, tight handling, great new ideas. Make sure you play it. In fact,...

Re: IGN's top 100 games (excluding handhelds) of last gen

To my mind, the biggest traits of the last gen were motion controls and open worlds. With that in mind my number 1 would be Red Dead Redemption and number 2 would be Wii Sports, in regards of impact, gameplay, and time spent. Personally i'd go for Bioshock 1 and Bit.Trip Runner over both of them, an...

Re: Wii U Owners Thread - Including User IDs

Transformed is so good, would love to see a challenge-focussed single player in Mario Kart. Reminded me of Diddy Kong Racing.

Re: Voice acting that spoiled a game for you

Harley Quinn in Arkham City is incredibly irritating, even if it doesn't spoil the game. Sonic and Tails in Sonic Adventure were appalling too.

Re: The Dreamcast is Overrated

I agree that you had to use it at the time, but a lot of its best games still hold up today and have never been better than they were DC. I'm a big fan of the controller myself, and the chunky colourful graphics are ace and have aged ok, at least stylistically. Maybe it gets overrated a little due t...

Re: Wii U Owners Thread - Including User IDs

I just finished Wonderful 101 last night. Its pretty good, though its brilliant and frustrating (for the wrong reasons) in equal measures. My biggest issue was the battery meter was never sufficient to cope with a good mix of attacks and it took an age to build up again, which totally ruined the flo...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

I picked up Rayman Legends and Arkham City for Wii U a few days ago, and also picked up a 1982 Donkey Kong Game & Watch from ebay for £30. Pretty happy with that, not a huge collector but Nintendo stuff from before I was born makes me tingle

Re: 3DS Games discussion/Collecting thread

Yeah I emailed them over a month ago, no answer. Its annoying cos its says that screen damage isnt covered by warranty but all I did was close the lid and reopen it - not dropped it, roasted it on a fire or anything - so it must be a system fault. If they dont email back i might end up selling it as...
