    @tiny-okay I think you confuse the fact that people don't want to engage your stupidity with the idea that people don't have an answer to it.

    I think you're gonna find that happening a lot in your life.

    @tiny-okay You can keep trying. But see, you doubling down on your hilariously stupid "forced drought" thing tells me exactly what I need to know about you, and about how this is gonna go. :)

    So have fun with your theories. Also remember, Bush did 911!!! And the moon landings were fake!!! The earth is flat and climate change is all made up and paid for by the liberal lobby!!!! :D

    @tiny-okay
    1. Are you going to address your utterly stupid "forced drought" comment, especially as it relates to a third-party title in this case?

    2. What do you have to gain from obsessively and ceaselessly parroting asinine terms such as "anti-consumer practices" while you have no real proof that they apply at all?

    @kobashi Don't forget you need the console, too. That's almost 400 right there.

    Then you need extra controllers for local multiplayer, you need a screen protector, and a carrying case. Then there's the extra docks you're gonna need to use the console with all your TV's. We're nearing 600 pounds now, all just to play SFII.

    Ridiculous!

    (edit: I somehow have to hope nobody is upvoting this because they think I'm actually serious - but knowing the mentally retarded behaviour of some of the crowd around here... my parody bit may have been too realistic. I don't know anymore, lol.)

    @ubiquitousuk LOL I love how there's always at least one insecure 15-year-old who needs to throw out the "kiddy toys!" line like some sort of compulsion.

    Guess what, kid. There's only one person here who hasn't yet matured properly, and... well it's you. :)

    Until it is actually officially announced, this sounds like a whole lot of wishful thinking tbqh.

    Not that I know why anyone would want a retro game console that can't even connect to a CRT, anyway.

    Edit: LOL and I don't know why some people are so upset by this statement.

  • Watch: 90 minutes of Bank Holiday nostalgia with The Disney Afternoon Collection

  • Nikanoru 18/04/2017

    @SuperSoupy Doesn't seem messy to me if it's gonna be anything like it's been on previous consoles. They're just games you download like any other, except they have some added emulator-related functionality. And a neat little console icon.

    Edit: wait are we still talking about how it would be messy if this collection was on Switch right now but not under the VC label? Cause if so, then yes, that's what I said in my first post, if. But it isn't. I meant that later when actual VC games get released we may see these games released as well, at that time.

    @SuperSoupy That seems like a bit of an overreaction. You go to the eshop, you buy a game. What else is there to it? Reply 0
  • Nikanoru 17/04/2017

    Nintendo game collection. Available on everything. Except on Nintendo.


    Though on a serious note, it would be kind of weird to have these NES games sitting on the eshop as non-VC games next to other NES games which are VC games. Maybe they will be released later under the VC label when that launches?

  • Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap review

  • Nikanoru 18/04/2017

    @Der_tolle_Emil
    I'm usually not a fan of hand-drawn graphics, especially when it comes to retro-remakes; I love pixel art way too much and besides, most of the new graphics look like someone simply used a filter to upscale and then manually correct a few rough edges.

    Not so with this game for some reason, I think it looks beautiful, even the animation seems like it's top notch. Not bad at all I must say.
    The reason is that these people are animation professionals who know what they are doing and put their full knowledge of natural movement into each unique hand-drawn frame.

    Compare and contrast with the Monster Boy game, which uses amateurish and cheap looking auto-tweened paper-doll animation that's not even done very well for what it is (much like many other "retro remakes" or new 2D games). The difference is like day and night.

    @mega-gazz I know why, but you tell me. You're the one who wants it so bad. Surely you must be able to articulate the reason precisely. Reply 0
  • Nikanoru 13/04/2017

    @mega-gazz No, it doesn't matter. This isn't a multiplayer game where balance tweaks directly change the way you play and you need to know about them. They're about as obligated to tell you about whatever tweaks were in this patch as they were detailing every step in the rest of the development process before release to you. It is absolutely and completely irrelevant. There is no logical reason you need to know about any of it. Your comment about "communication" only applies if they have something relevant to communicate. They don't. There is no rational reason to get upset, at all.

    And no, Nintendo games often don't need patches at all. Whether you accept it or not, this is just a fact. For many of their games, there just aren't any, and they're fine.

    @DickSocrates There's no need to get so worked up, it's just a bonus "pet" you get from scanning an amiibo. It doesn't do anything but walk next to you and attack enemies. Hell, it has nothing to do with the game or the story at all. It might as well not be there. Reply 0
  • Nikanoru 13/04/2017

    @mega-gazz What a weird and inane thing to be bothered about.

    Here's something you may not know about Nintendo: they're in the business of selling games. They don't need to reveal their underlying technical workings because it doesn't matter, and in fact only detracts from what they want to put forth, which is a complete and polished product. They didn't even do patches up until now, and in fact I'm pretty sure they wished they'd never had to, unlike every other developer.

  • Nintendo Classic Mini NES is being discontinued

  • Nikanoru 14/04/2017

    @SBandy
    Nintendo seems to have a "waste not want not" approach (I think I have used that term right haha) which to be fair usually works in their favour. They don't lose too much money because they don't often over produce stock that won't sell.

    So their failures don't hurt too bad and when they get it right they profit big time. I guess they maybe know this business better than a lot of us give them credit for.
    At least someone's making a bit of sense instead of diving headlong into idiotic "Nintendo is anti consumer! Nintendo hates you!!!!" diatribes.

    @3en You realize it isn't 1994 anymore, the Super Nintendo is no longer in production, and Nintendo has allowed and marketed highly family-unfriendly games on their system ever since we got to decapitate and suck out the brains of enemies in Turok on the N64?

    What you're saying makes no sense and just seems to be arguing for the sake of argument.

    @jaguarwong "Horrific" is relative. I would agree with you if someone was complaining that the airplane food was horrific (heck I'm sure many do use that descriptor).

    But getting beaten until bloody, because someone wants to take your seat that you paid for? Acceptable use IMO.

    20 years in prison for making the call seems extremely harsh to me, it was the incompetence of the police that was the real problem.
    Kindly rethink your bullshit.

    Regardless of whether you think the police are justified in doing what they did, FACT is that they do it. We know this, everyone knows this, and the caller knew this. He didn't make an innocent prank that escalated beyond what he expected. He knew exactly what the fuck he was doing.

    For that, he deserves to be put away for 20 years and serve as an example.

    @Naetharu I'm sorry but the type of woman you usually see in commercials is fine health-wise... there is absolutely no way you can compare that to, for example, the high amount of fat-buildup in the legs of that third woman in this commercial especially.

    So much so that if you try to make that argument, it couldn't help but make me suspect a degree of inherent bias that tends to come with being overweight oneself. No offense intended.

    @Naetharu I like how you basically just called almost every woman in my family "not real looking" because they're not overweight like the ones in the commercial are.

    But it's hard not to look at some of the quirkier games the studio's founders were responsible for at Rare, including 2008's underrated Banjo & Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts, and not feel like punches have been pulled.
    I'm not sure I entirely agree with taking this one game type that many people have been asking for for years, and encourage developers not to make it anymore by unfavourably comparing it to some abomination of a game that completely ruined a beloved series in said genre in the first place. But hey, that's just me.

    you'll also hoover up Quills, over a thousand in all. They guide you through the landscape, tracing paths up and around cartoon monoliths or through crops of over-sized mushrooms. It's a far cry from today's open worlders, where collectible items suffuse the terrain indiscriminately rather than helping to articulate it to the player.
    The newer Mario games do this exact thing too, and yet there, the reviewers call it genius...
    I'm fairly sure the reviewer mentioned the item positioning as a positive, not a negative? I certainly prefer items to be that way.

    Edit: I see you already answered this in another comment. Well let's just say I agree with Rack's interpretation.
