  • Watch: When should we review games?

  • Dan1382 24/10/2015

    I feel that you should review a game on launch. I'm a child of the 80s, if a game is buggy on launch then tough shit, its a shit game! If you wait for patches, bug fixes, enhancements then you'll be waiting forever and you'll never be able to give an accurate review. These days I wait for reviews before deciding to buy a game, if it has bugs then I dont buy it! Its simple!

    Since the advent of the internet games developers have become lazy, they think they can release a game thats buggy as fuck and then patch it later when people complain. Call me old fashioned but thats bollocks! If your game is buggy at launch then its not worth playing! EA and Ubisoft, I'm looking at you!

  • Who needs a new F-Zero when the Wii U's got Fast Racing Neo?

  • Dan1382 28/08/2015

    Nintendo had asked Burnout developer Criterion to make an F-Zero Wii U launch title, it emerged recently, but the studio had to decline as it was already busy designing Need for Speed: Most Wanted.
    Aren't Criterion owned by EA and haven't EA stopped making games for Nintendo? I would relish the day when a game is released that hasn't been wiped on EA's arse!

    I'm really looking forward to this, I love Wipeout and I love F-Zero!

  • Nintendo's bright future with Splatoon

  • Dan1382 25/07/2015

    There's a lot of arrogance in the gaming industry. Most companies refuse to acknowledge that their games are just fun but are more "interactive experiences" and should be viewed as something more than just a bit of fun but Nintendo have stuck with the premise that games are just for fun. If any company knows the most about games, its Nintendo. No other company has made it this far in the industry than they have. Where are Sega and Atari now? They're only publishers, they're not console developers any more! Sonic and Pacman have become shit in their current iterations but Mario, Mario Kart, Zelda and Metroid are still amazing and we still want F-Zero, Star Fox and whatever else Nintendo decides to make. The Wii U may not have done so well sales wise but I own one and its still my favourite console of this generation! Reply +4
  • Thousands of Nintendo fans pay respects at Satoru Iwata funeral

  • Dan1382 17/07/2015

    When you look at the console giants who have come and gone over the years (Atari and Sega mostly) I really think its impressive that Nintendo have managed to stay relevant and have been able to make consoles and games that have stood the test of time. The Wii, for example, (in my experience anyway) has encouraged non gamers to become gamers. My parents hated games when I was a kid, they thought that they were for unsociable nerds but now they actually own a Wii and play Wii Sports as well as various skiing games and even ask me to bring my XBox over to play Kinect Sports every christmas with the family! Even though its not had a good start, the Wii U, in my opinion, has been the best console of this generation, I've played it more than my XBox One and my PS4! You can't get a few beers in, call your mates round and play PS4 unless you're playing FIFA. Wii U is the best console for social gaming! Mario Kart and Smash Bros have been epic!

    We have Iwata to thank for this and I will always be a fan of Nintendo because of the contributions he and his team have made to gaming. They have stuck to their guns and made gaming FUN, something that a lot of gaming executives are too arrogant to admit that this is what games are and what they should be about!

  • Watch 15 minutes of Zelda: Triforce Heroes

  • Dan1382 28/06/2015

    I wasn't really that impressed with E3 this year, especially Nintendo who I was expecting big things from. Nintendo's biggest reveal was a new Star Fox game which wasn't exactly exciting! As much as I enjoyed Lylat Wars (Star Fox 64), I would rather have a sequel to the Gamecube title Star Fox Adventures on the Wii U or at least have the Gamecube Star Fox Adventures on the Nintendo Store.

  • Video: Borderlands 2 brings splitscreen co-op to Xbox One, PS4

  • Dan1382 28/03/2015

    As a kid I hated split screen. Back in the 90s and early 00s we only had 14" TVs so being able to see what was on the screen was limited. However since the advent of internet gaming its been no longer possible to have your mates over for a gaming night. Since the XBox One and PS4 you would all have to stay at home if you wanted to play games with your mates, unless one of you had Fifa. The only consoles that allowed you to get a few beers in and have your mates over were the Wii or more recently the Wii U! Now that I have a 47" TV I welcome any game with a split screen mode!

  • Dan1382 28/03/2015

    I have an XBox One and a Wii U and I have to say that I've enjoyed more current games on my Wii U more than my XBox One. There is nothing on XBox One that has made me feel justified in buying this console, and before the Playstation fan boys jump on this, nothing on PS4 makes me want to trade in my XBox One for a PS4 either. The current state of the games on these consoles quite frankly takes the piss. We were promised that games like Destiny and Titanfall would give us a truly next gen experience but this is bollocks, they're not next gen, they just look nice! The only games I'm looking forward to in the future are games like Splatoon, the new Zelda game, Xeno Blade Chronicles and anything else the Wii U will have to offer. In my opinion its the only console worth buying this generation! Reply +6

  • New D&D game Sword Coast Legends out on PC this year

  • Dan1382 13/02/2015

    I'd love to see an open world Dungeons & Dragons game (forget Neverwinter or D&D Online), I'm talking about a full Skyrimesque open world based in the D&D world but where there's a dynamic element to the quests a bit like the random events in Red Dead Redemption. You may have just arrived in a town and are hanging out but then suddenly someone approaches you and asks you to go on a quest but how you do that quest is entirely up to you. You could also have dialog choices like in SWTOR. Reply 0

  • Destiny image reportedly reveals major Plague of Darkness expansion

  • Dan1382 02/01/2015

    No, we can't let this shit continue! We already have CoD and now Titanfall, Why are we allowing this crap to exist?!

    When Eurogamer elects Mario Kart 8 as game of the year (a brilliant game, don't get me wrong!) why are we encouraging this bollocks?!

    We keep complaining about crap games but we allow crap games to exist because we keep buying crap games. Its the same with any other form of crap media, reality shows, "Talent" shows in all their forms. We'll never learn that this shit will continue to exist unless we stop buying it! It confuses me how humanity can be that stupid to not realise this!

    I was one of the idiots who bought Destiny, thinking that it can't be bad as Bungie made it. 2 months later and only reaching level 4 (because it was more boring than watching Windows 7 update) I traded it in to knock some pennies off a Wii U. I'm still frustrated that Bungie has my money for this shit! I could've bought something good! Reply +1

    I think Jim Sterling sums up every Nintendo game with this one sentence:

    Who can honestly say that about a Ubisoft, EA, Bethesda, Infinity Ward, Microsoft, Sony, Activision or Blizzard title?

  • Actor in Donkey Kong costume suffers heart injury, sues Nintendo

  • Dan1382 04/12/2014

    Its a hard thing to comment on. On the surface it does seem like someone simply exploiting America's suing culture to get a bit of money. He may have had a heart condition for a long time but never had it professionally diagnosed because he couldn't afford the medical bills and America doesn't have a National Health Service. This guy's job is to dress up as a video game gorilla which I'm guessing only pays peanuts(ahem). However not being allowed to take breaks, especially when you're dressed like that in hot weather is unlawful and may have caused stress on his heart. Maybe he should've asked Dr. Mario! Reply +14

  • Captain Toad is Nintendo at its off-beat best

  • Dan1382 06/11/2014

    While the other main contenders in the console wars are making super duper mega online entertainment systems with ultra realistic, deep story driven, shooty death movie like experiences, Nintendo have stuck to what they do best, making GAMES consoles and making GAMES that aren't all ultra realistic but are simply fun and offer a more sociable experience than any game on the XBox One or PS4. You'd find it hard to invite all your mates over, have a few beers and play PS4 together all night unless you were playing FIFA!

    @Cosbuster It took me a while to find your irrelevant comment. If gamers are so obsessed with graphics then why did the Wii sell more units than XBox360 and PS3? Also why has Minecraft done so well? I don't buy games for bright lights and flashy graphics, I buy them because they're fun to play! I'm sure any gamers of my generation would agree!

    And if you are the same generation that listens to One Direction or Nicki Minaj then you are responsible for the death of music! You are the reason why Call of Duty is allowed to exist!
