It felt unnatural somehow. That's probably just Nintendo style button arrangement I suppose.
    Yep, Japanese language is from right to left mate.
    That's why Sony went with shapes instead of letters, "X" in the EU and NA regions advances whilst in Asia "O" serves that function.
    It's like people have never played a SNES or PS1 :D
    I didn't mean in the sense that A and B should be swapped around. It just felt weird that the pad made my finger default to the button on the right. All other pads feel more like the lowest of the 4 buttons is the default one Wasn't the lowest one the jump button on Mario World on the SNES?

    Yup, but plenty of Japanese consoles/games use the right button as the primary for menus and the like.

    I'm the same mate, it always throws me as I tend to play games more on my PS3.

    In SMW, the A and B buttons were jump, X and Y were run, and the shoulder buttons were for the spin jump.

    One of the main reason a put CFW on my azn PSP was that the reversed functions of the X and O buttons drove me absolutely crackers.

    Well thanks to picking up a couple of 98p games and trading them in with some of my backlog that realistically was never going to be touched, I managed to pick up a Premium bundle with NSMBU at lunch today for 40.

    Keep hearing the 'Nintendo Magic' is back, I hope so as it would be nice to introduce my daughter to gaming with this rather then rubbish movie tie-ins.

    Just 4 hours to home time, not to long to go now.

    There was one on neogaf that made me laugh, someone made a thread because they couldn't find the FIFA demo on the eShop. Straight away people jumped on saying how poor Nintendo are at these things before anyone had the chance to point out there is a massive "Demos" button front and centre of the homepage.

    To be fair though, the top comment is quite simila to yours, although much more succinct. It has +46 karma, so I doubt yours will be megged mate.

    Definitely think the magic is back. I absolutely hated the Wii, i thought it was a load of waggle-filled bollocks, with the exception of the Super Mario Galaxy games and the Metroid trilogy.

    Straight off the bat with the WiiU, you've got NSMBU, ZombiU, Sonic All Stars, BLOPS 2, ACIII and Arkham City - so its better than the Wii ever was already!

    Well, I have apple stuff, but I wouldn't call myself a fan. It's just easier, and I get more choice. I am actually growing to dislike them myself these days more and more.

    I just don't understand why buying something = brand loyalty.

    I completely disagree. Needs some Metroid and Mario before it's a Wii beater.

    yeah, its not just nintendo products though, even though they are taking the brunt of the internet code of conduct at the moment. its just tiring. I just want to go on a site, read, and not be subjected to reading drivel. And i can't help but read it. And then get invovled :)

    Me too, I realised the mistake within a day of the Wii Purchase, this I love and it's looking set to be that way for a while. The Gamepad is bloody brilliant.

    I think the negativity that currently surrounds Nintendo, and to be fair, all developers when a new console launches, is that people need to justify their purchases. It's like having a neighbour who has spent a load of money on a new car and they spend forever telling you how it's the best in its range, the most reliable, convenient, etc... Then they'll tell you why you made the wrong decision with your car.

    300 is a lot to spend at the minute and the quicker they can rip it to pieces, the quicker they'll get over not getting one. It's a shame really, but that's how it goes.

    I think the negativity that surrounds Nintendo on gaming sites is due to the fact that it's aimed more towards children. Those who justify for or against the purchase are equally as annoying as one another, so they cancel each other out.

    Nor would I. I'd also add Viewtiful Joe 1 and 2 to that list, I played one of them (I think 2) when I was still really crap at games and never finished any so it'd be good to have another chance at them.

    I do wonder though what people would think to HD remakes of some Gamecube games. Personally i'd love to see ones for Wind Waker and Super Mario Sunshine! Naturally i'd much rather we had brand new games instead but... I wouldn't say no to having both.

    @chrisno21 mario strikers was a fun concept that got annoying very quickly. An underrated game is Midway's NHL hitz which used a similar format with hockey and was great fun.

    I'm still loving the console. Can't wait to get a new game with some Christmas vouchers. Being able to play on the Gamepad is the killer feature. I wouldn't play a PS3 game for months on end because I didn't want to hog the TV. Problem solved.

    I might get BLOPS2 or maybe Mass Effect 3...I'll read some reviews.
