    Why is that annoying?

    @Short-Round It's a little annoying. I've currently got 2 seperate VC collections on two different Nintendo consoles. It's nice being able to take the 3DS to bed and play something like Castlevania, but I can't do that with my Wii U as the Gamepad cuts out right next to my bed. :(

    Granted, I knew that this wasn't going to be the case and so I stopped buying NES Virtual Console games on the 3DS. It'll be purely for Gameboy, GBC and GameGear games now.

    I was just curious. I'm totally caught up in the brilliance of the 3DS, and would have bought some VC games, but the prices are silly, there's no N64 stuff and worst of all, this whole drip-feeding nonsense gets on my wick.

    Do you have to buy each game across each device, or does a licence for a VC game on 3DS carry over to the Wii U as well?

    No, and that's my only gripe. If you buy a NES game on the 3DS, it's for 3DS only. If you want it on your Wii U, you'll have to buy it again on that system. So, as I say, i'll be sticking with handheld VC games on my 3DS from now on, and console VC games on the Wii U.

    That's something that seriously needs addressing. It's really miserly on the part of Nintendo and also pointless too.

    If I buy it on the Wii U I 'm seriously not going to bother buying it on the 3ds as well (or vice versa) so they may as well do a cross play thing.

    I do however like the fact that you get 30% off digital 101 if you buy Pikmin 3 digital.

    Earthbound is also a nice surprise.

    Now, about that drip feeding VC Nintendo....

    It's crazy how backwards Nintendo really are, when you lay these things out in black and white.

    I'm stunned I can't buy digital copies of DS and GBA games on the 3DS.

    I'm trying to download Earthbound but my Wii U is doing something weird. I needed to download the latest system update so went to download management to see how it was coming along and it said "Some items have failed to download", went into it and it said I was online and was downloading it, a few seconds later it cut out and said there was an error, a few seconds later again it came back and then went and then came back, etc, etc. Does anyone have any idea on what could be making it do that or how I could fix it?

    I've let it do the system update to see if that fixed it but it's still doing it now as it tries to download patches for a couple games. I've tried googling the error codes that I get when trying to load the eshop and done everything it suggests and even tried deleting my connection details and re doing it all manually but that hasn't helped. My PS3 was downloading stuff pretty slowly a week or two ago as well so it could be to do with my internet connection but all my other devices (360, PC, 3DS, phone, etc) work fine.

    Obviously this is stopping me from doing anything that requires the internet for an extended period (eshop, for example) so I'd appreciate any help!

    Is there maintenance going on in your area? Check with your ISP. I had that problem all through January. Left me with crippled speeds on both my Wii U and 360. I couldn't play any games online. :'(

    Thanks for the help Raiko but I just, somehow, got it to work.

    I let it finish downloading the couple patches, deleted one that it said was corrupted and the installed the patches. After that it kept saying that it couldn't find the access point so I reset it and the router together and then it worked.

    While I'm here, did I miss out on any of the 30p NES games? The last one I bought before today was Super Metroid and then today Donkey Kong, was there one inbetween those two?

    Yeah. Mario and Yoshi? Some puzzle game. I didn't bother with it, 30p or not it didn't look like something I'd play.

    Ahh, ok, thanks! I think I have that on the 3DS and I've not played it on that anyway so no harm done!

    Looks as if these games have been sprinkled with the old Nintendo magic.  Both look like gigantic amounts of fun.  I cam certainly empathise with the writer.  Mario U made me feel the same way.  Looks like some smashing exclusive games are coming our way!  If this keeps up I might cancel my PS4 pre order as cant face another FPS or driving sim and could do without spending all that dosh anyway.

    Wonderful 101 looks totally mental and brilliant too.

    Bayonetta 2 would be unlikely to disappoint.

    This wii u thing might just work out ok ;)

    Im still planning to pick up the ps4, but there are a good few wii u games i will be wanting to pick up over the next year.

    Im still not sure about the wonderful 101, but im pretty sure the reviewers will change my mind on it if its any good.

    Terrible article. "Fanboy has good time in Nintendo booth". Articles like that make gaming journalism the cesspool that it is.
    You need a hug.

    One week to go until a legit Nintendo game comes out. (I'm not counting Game and Wario).

    I can't wait. It's been emotional.

    Let's hope this is the worst of the drought.

    @Pinky_Floyd @MrTomFTW Enjoy what you want, but when did we need an article dedicated to it? If a critic had said Last Stand was good because he loved Schwarzenegger, he'd rightfully be fired as the film was a steaming pile o' crap. This sort of juvenile article is what makes the vast majority of gaming journalism the pathetic turd that it is.
    Opinions in gaming journalism = good

    Less of you in this thread = good

    See the pattern?
