    MK8, DKC: Tropical Freeze AND Bayonetta 2 playable? Nintendo’s gonna have more people play their games than a church has “Ooh Lawds!”

    Edit: It seems as if belligerent, paint-huffing mouth-breathers like “Guest” and “Katz” have taken over the trolling duties that once belonged to intelligent-yet-delusional individuals like Truthteller. Flag them and carry on.

    The Super Mario 3D World Box Art Looks Amazing..

    Maybe the Mario Kart 8 Box art must be better…

    • AAAkabob

      Ok ok no need to fill every topic with this photo

    • Merrfn

      We all know what the Super Mario 3d world box art looks like. There was an entire article on it .-.

      • Jon

        he is just posting this one because it is a much better resolution than the one in the article.

        • Merrfn

          It is? Never noticed.

  • CEObrainz

    I’ll be going to this on the 26th

    • nin-10-doughfan

      good for you! i’m jealous!( i wish i could go on one of those events.)

    • Merrfn

      Well I won’t. New Zealand FTW!

      • Hero_Ike

        Middle Earth? I love that place!!!

        • Merrfn

          Very, very clever.

          .-.

  • Ben Ifits

    Hopefully they don’t have the rainbow road 150cc track available cause I could foresee a game pad or two shoved through the tv lol

    • CEObrainz

      they will most likely keep that as a surprise till release

    • Merrfn

      I will beat it. At all costs. Prepare to see me rage :P

    • 00EpicGamer00

      Even though rainbow road is a killer (literally) of a track. You have to admit that it is beautiful :)

      Especially the one in Double Dash.

      • Merrfn

        Me and rainbow road have I love/hate relationship. I love it for the challenge, and despise it for the challenge at the same time.

        • 00EpicGamer00

          I as well :3

          Like…I like randbow road, but I don’t at the same time….because of how difficult it can be xD

  • Daniel

    Ahh lawd

  • AAAkabob

    Show the east coast of the USA some love Nintendo…we get no kool vidya games stuff=[

    • Merrfn

      Give Australia/New Zealand some love Nintendo! It could be a first .-.

  • Jack5221

    I really wish there was some kind of gaming convention here in central america. Would really like to try some of these demos out. Its nice to know that Mario 3D world and DK will be out before the end of this year, but is Mario Kart that Im dying to try! I’ve heard nothing but good things about it.

    • Merrfn

      You could go to the Xbox One convention thing, and play it early!

      • Magnus Eriksson

        Yeah, bet Mario Kart will look way better on Xbox :)

        • Merrfn

          I know right! I am going to play it on my Xbox as soon as I get home from launch! All these stupid Wii U owners are going ot be so jealous!

          • Veries Seals

            lol

          • Merrfn

            Whats so funny bro? You are just butthurt I get to play Mario Kart 8 before you on a better console!

          • Veries Seals

            Not really sure where you going with butts and all of that. But I have a Wii U with a massive library and love it. I also have my XBox One on preorder and will get a PS4 a bit later. Dont understand your point.

          • Merrfn

            My point is, I am being sarcastic :P

          • Veries Seals

            ahhhhh. i had to check, i was like wow what did i do for a minute there. lol. my bad

          • Merrfn

            All good. Sometimes hard to tell if a person on the internet is a dumbass or being sarcastic and playing a joke.

          • Veries Seals

            true. so true. my goal is to have one of the most fun robust Wii U libraries on the planet. Plus I just have fun trying games games games on the Console. I have actually liked a lot of them. Bought 2 more tonight and have Wonderful 101 sunday coming and zelda disc copy on oct 4th.

          • Merrfn

            I can’t wait for WWHD! I love Zelda, but haven’t played this one yet.

          • Veries Seals

            Well you are in for a treat. I had it for gamecube, but I did not get to finish it. Now I get to take my time and play it in HD. I love it.

          • Merrfn

            I was about to emulate it when the remake was announced. I want to experience it in full HD on my Wii U for the first time rather than a crappy GC emulator.

          • Veries Seals

            I agree. I have played with emulators and they are good for a cheap thrill but there is just something better about how the actual consoles handle the games that you cant get from an emulator.

          • Arthur Jarret

            Why bother emulating anything on the gamecube? You can pick one up from pawn and thrift shops for 20 bucks!

            If you do, I’ve got ’bout a 100 games to recommend! (I own every gamecube exclusive, even timed ones… I had to give up on doing this for wii due to exclusives like… carnaval party classics: shake the shake)

          • Merrfn

            I live in a small town (Population 80,000) and go into thrift stores all the time. I haven’t seen a gamecube in my life.

          • Arthur Jarret

            I live in a small town too… (there are no large towns in my small country) and I see them all the time in Thrift shops, Pawn shops and special little stores which have collection posts next to the city dump to take working stuff, refurbish it and sell it to solely raise cash for charity and keep people working with handicaps.

            Those little shops are great, I’ve found many PS1 games there, a donkey kong game n watch for 75 cents, my current ‘gamer-chair’, a megadrive, my dinner table…

          • Merrfn

            The problem is, the thrift stores in my town only really supply: clothes, second household objects and books. Not once have I ever seen something gaming oriented in one of them. I will look on TradeMe (New Zealands eBay) and find one.

          • Arthur Jarret

            Mine has quite a bit electronic stuff… it’s near my work.

            My co-worker saw an atari jaguar there once – but when I came for it 4 hours later after work, it was already gone… still picked up plenty there, they don’t know gaming – so have very friendly pricing!

          • Merrfn

            Well the thrift shops in my town don’t know gaming. Because no games or consoles ever make it into the store! I bet it is because of EB games, (GameStop) making you trade in everything for money!

          • Arthur Jarret

            Those types of stores for some reason won’t take retro stuff over here. They only deal up to one generation back (they’ve recently stopped taking ps2 and xbox on… uhm, the first xbox games used).

            Good for me, I guess

          • Merrfn

            My stores take everything but gaming items. Pawn shops don’t exist in my town, and retro gaming is non-existent. Count yourself lucky ;) I am jealous :P

          • Arthur Jarret

            Defenitely try and get one – as I don’t see four swords getting an HD release soon and that’s pretty fun – although not really a ‘full’ zelda experience. F-zero GX is worth getting the console for, though – the best game Sega ever made.

          • makkan

            i don’t call that a small town, because in the town i live in that is very small only has around 1000 as population

          • Silent

            You can’t imply sarcasm through plain textual linguistic stimuli.

      • Jack5221

        Eeeeeeeewwww Xbox…. lol :P

        • Merrfn

          Mario Kart 8 has better graphics on it.

          • Jack5221

            I don’t care for graphics all that much. The gameplay is what matters. :)

          • Merrfn

            I also heard that some exclusive features to Mario Kart 8 are going to be on the Xbox One.

          • Arthur Jarret

            Yes, but those are all DLC.

            Each racer is DLC too.
            You also have to pay a real-money entrance fee for each race in a cup.

            When people complained on the official xbox forums that they did not appreciate this type of free to play shite, the microsoft spokepersons collectively put fingers in each of their ears and went “lalala, lalala, it’s not free to play, it’s not, it’s not, it’s really not. lalala, lalala. If anything, you know… if… anything… it’s the… the… the worlds second most generous demo… – yeah, that’s it -, second most generous demo evaaaar!

          • Merrfn

            ಠ_ಠ What the hell are you talking about ಠ_ಠ

          • Arthur Jarret

            … Uhm. Look there, an eaten sandwich! [runs]

          • Merrfn

            I mean seriously. Where did that come from? O_O

          • Arthur Jarret

            Frustrations about their handling of my beloved Killer instinct franchise…

            Never mind, move along – nothing to see here (and I’ll get KI anyway…)

    • Veries Seals

      I agree. Maybe we will start to see more demos

  • Linskarmo

    I’d love to go there, but I can’t. Mario Kart 8 looks fabulous, and so do the others mentioned. I’ll just have to wait for the games, I guess.

  • Clel

    LOL, there’s a PS4 ad at the top of this page XD

    • http://www.us.playstation.com/ HyperTallih

      Cookies :D

  • http://www.us.playstation.com/ HyperTallih

    The pic says its a awesome game can’t wait!

  • Johnny Be Me

    Does Mario’s mustache look smaller to anyone else? Maybe it’s the angle of his head but it keeps reminding me of the picture of Mario with no mustache.

  • Shadriczo

    Just what we need, more immigrant trollers.

    Do yourselves a favor trolls, either STFU, or get hunted down by a Terminator.

  • Aleks

    Does this have a rough release date yet? I need online turtle launching ASAP, tired of drowning Pikmin (jk)

    • kaygivs

      ….are you joking about drowning pikmin or growing tired of it….?

      • Aleks

        Jk lol. Just eager for online weapon racing.

    • Merrfn

  • A SNES Day Off

    This game cannot come soon enough.

    My Wii Wheel is ready!

  • Agent721

    This will be a huge system seller. I cannot wait!!

  • Lil J Moore

    I am going to London. Now if only I can create a clone of myself that would stay and go to work for me.

  • Yoboyjohn

    Well its time to move to Europe

  • Yoci

    I can hardly wait for this game! I played the heck out of Mario Kart Wii (still do), and missed out on Mario Kart 7 (don’t own a 3DS :/). But, this game will take the cake for me! The wait is worth it, because it will be all the more better when it comes out. Would love to be at this Expo.

    • Merrfn

      Mario kart is a day one pick up. I wonder how many systems it will sell along with smash bros…

      • Yoci

        Same here, and I wonder that as well. No doubt it will move loads of consoles. Just about everyone I know loves a Mario Kart game.

        • Merrfn

          Yeah, it is one of those major system sellers, just like smash bros. And the same as Zelda. And Mario.

          Well there are lots of reasons to buy a Wii U haha!

          • Yoci

            Smash Bros. is another game I can’t wait to play! xD

            2014 is going to be a great year, gaming wise. My games list just keeps growing lol.

          • Merrfn

            Yeah, I won’t have enough money.

  • starwars360

    I just cannot wait for upcoming Wii U games that I will getting and I want list of upcoming games for it:

    Super Smash Bros
    Mario Kart 8
    X
    The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD
    Bayonetta 2
    Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
    Sonic: Lost World
    Super Mario 3D World
    Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut
    Scribblenauts Unmasked
    Scibblenauts Unlimited (finally UK and Europe will have this in December 2013 and will release same time as Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze release)
    Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games

    New The Legend of Zelda series for Wii U (Nintendo already said one of their team working hard on new series of The Legend of Zelda for Wii U). Seem like 2015 is right time for it.

    Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Online is still on hold while Ubisoft still force in developing of PC version and once it is completed and will working hard on Wii U version. It’s will release once it is ready after Wii U version is complete developed.

    Sir Shigeru Miyamoto already mention he and his team working hard on new IP game for Wii U. Can’t wait for find out what new IP game is. :)

    • Merrfn

      2014 will be a good year for Wii U owners.

      • starwars360

        Yeah man. :)

        • Merrfn

          I can’t wait. I haven’t been so hyped in a long time. WWHD has me hyped, and so does Smash Bros and MK8. I am going to explode.

          • starwars360

            Yeah it is will be hell fun. Wii U will have big time real sooner. :)

          • Merrfn

            The PS4’s and XB1’s launches both look like they will be pretty weak. Hopefully developers will realise games sell consoles, consoles sell games and sold games make money. More 3rd party support would be awesome!

          • starwars360

            Hehehe maybe yeah. I look forward Xbox One this christmas and many Wii U titles with some PS3 and Xbox 360 titles as well.

            PS4 will have wait next year along with inFamous: Second Son.

            PS4 seem not interests for launch because not much exclusive titles make me want to buy but defo buy PS4 when inFamous: Second Son come out February 2014.

            Xbox One is much more interest for me to buy launch day console this christmas then PS4 because Dead Rising 3, Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome and Zoo Tycoon. Those lots of exclusive titles for Xbox One that make me into it not only that but I want carry on for Xbox because I got friends and my gamerscore to keep going on for me.

            Also Watch_Dogs, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. All those games I getting it for Xbox One.

            The fact Xbox One and Wii U titles is most exciting this Christmas for me over Xbox 360 and PS3. But only PS3 game I most hype and excite is new Ratchet & Clank game this November so this Franchise is one of my favourite platformer games. :)

            Note: if some Sony publishers, developers, creators and fans had read what I said. I want say I am sorry that I not getting PS4 this Christmas for launch but I will support PS4 once inFamous returns. Lol

          • Merrfn

            I am going to pick up the PS4 in a couple of years, and the XB1 in 4 because I don’t see any must have games that interest me.

            Right now I will enjoy my Wii U, PC and my friends XB1 and PS4.

            I get it all! :P

          • Arthur Jarret

            Zoo tycoon is a system seller nowadays?

            I’ll be getting PS4 sometime next year, and killer instict as soon as their free to pl… erm ‘most generous demo’ business model fails and they release a complete disc version.

            I’ll go get a stereoscopic 3D-capable beamer first.

          • Yoci

            WWHD is another i’m excited for. I’ve never played the original on the GC, so this one will be perfect. :)

          • Merrfn

            Same here, but I love Zelda.

    • Yoci

      Practically the same as my list. So many awesome games coming out for Wii U. I’m going to try and get them as they release, but hard to keep up with limited funds. xD

  • MetroidZero

    Inb4 I hate Nintendo…I want this game on xbone and ps4.

    • Jon

      you missed it, the guy was ban already too. lol

      • MetroidZero

        lol! I was referring to the same guy too haha

    • starwars360

      Lol too bad go get Wii U for it. I got Wii U, Xbox 360 and PS3 so soon I will own Xbox One by this Christmas launch and PS4 in 2014 for me. Right if you fancy this game then get it for Wii U. Who care which console it is on so as long as game going be epic. I am so happy Nintendo back it’s form with lots of new stuffs in Mario Kart 7 and 8 after disappointed and worst in the series is Mario Kart Wii. So Nintendo promises Mario Kart 8 going be lots of exciting and epic in the series. I cannot wait for MK 8 so much.

      5 most important titles in 2014 for me to watch out, look forward and most wanted is:

      Super Smash Bros
      Mario Kart 8
      X
      Thief
      inFamous: Second Son

      Wii U is most interests for titles over Xbox One and PS4 in 2014 in my opinion.

      GTA V is my most wanted game in 2013 and it is Xbox 360 version I getting so it is come out next Tuesday.

      2014 is year of Wii U and 2013 is year of GTA!!!

  • MARIO’SMOUSTACH

    Hey, could some of you guys check out my Wii U website?

    http://wiiuland.wordpress.com/

    Thank you.

  • Jason arreola

    target had W101 for sale. i grab it right away. they had 2 copies. guy says he put it out 1 hour before i got there.

    • discuss

      How is this relevant?

  • Andreas Sunde

    I’m expecting Wii Wheel controls for this. Drunk gaming just isn’t the same with analog sticks.

  • Kevin Wickham

    no one ever told me about that……… but i’m kinda hoping for a demo of smash bros for wii u/3ds

  • TULFich

    exactly how the PS Vita is killing nintendo?

  • WheatleySonic101

    OK. 1) Have you ever even played a wii u? 2) The vita didn’t kill the 3ds, it’s doing better than ever. 3) You used the word gay to describe something. That automatically makes you stupid. Seriously, If you like sony so much then go to ps4daily.com and leave us nintendo fans alone.

  • Jon

    Gotta love this guy, notice how all the Nintendo hate talk is not a “guest”. Pathetic boy is too ashamed/scared to show is name.

  • Jon

    you know the Vita is actually quite weak right? out for 2 years+ and even struggling to keep ahead of the Wii U yet that will change in like… 2-3 weeks.

  • Aleks

    “Guest” needs to suck a **** and get raped by a traffic cone. Pathetic little man.

  • Katz

    Look there is no reason to troll the dedicated Nitendo fans. Yes, most of them are homosexual but let them be. No reason to state the Wii Us failure, it’s just wrong. Btw xbox for the win

  • Jon

    troll? You give us the comical show when you show us how stupid you are. For example, your vita statement…. that is just you going full retard there and you should know, you never go full retard.

  • Clel

    I love how you stated that you’re a troll but people are still replying to you and taking you seriously.

  • Alex

    Yup and it feels like Nintendo is pushing this game to the max.

  • Pikachief

    Agreed. It was really fun.

  • Josiah Parsons

    Agreed! MarioKart is possibly my favorite Nintendo franchise ever, and this one is the best MarioKart game ever! Good times ahead.
    Fun Fact: did you know that the big button in the middle of the gamepad is the horn? you tap it, and it HONKS! Brilliant, Nintendo!

  • Jon

    sad when you see someone need to use homosexuality as an insult, it just shows how truly pathetic they are.

  • Aleks

    Laaaaaaame. Those who attack, want what you have and insult you with what they really are, to try and distance themselves from it. Textbook psychology. You are revealed. Good luck with your life lameO.

  • 00EpicGamer00

    Could you please explain to me how Nintendo fans are “homosexual?” Do you even know what homosexual means?

    Oh, you like Xbox? (VERY crappy system, in my opinion.) So, does that mean you’ll be a rapist and murderer in the future?

  • Katz

    True right? Nothing wrong with being a nintendo fan. Same thing

  • Jon

    I am saying how sad it is that you need to go to that to try and get people mad when really, it makes you look pathetic and immature.

  • Katz

    So you’re telling me that I got you mad? I’m defending you fanboys not making fun of you guys. Fine, I won’t act immature and not kiss Nintendo’s ass. Adios.

  • Erik

    This goes to show..You had a bad education :)

  • Jon

    You forgot the question mark.

  • Marcus Navarro

    Do I suck Dick’s what? Sporting Goods?

  • Katz

    I actually do ;)

  • Jon

    Defending us by calling us homosexuals…. lol, you have a weird way of defending people. Also, I never said I got mad, I simply said you are attempting to get us mad, don’t try and put words into peoples mouths.

  • Jon

    Why eat children? Adults have much more meat and will give you a lot more for what it is worth.

  • Jon

    Nintendo4life is mad…. By the way, the guy is “guest”, he commented and then deleted it so it shows as a guest so I am guessing he is the same one as the “Guest” that is trolling. Odd name though, “Nintendo4life”, You’d think he’d be a fan of Nintendo.

  • Katz

    Lol don’t put words in peoples mouth? Then speak up for yourself kid. I’m not your mother to defend you, since I’m immature. Sorry about the homo thing but its true. Tough love

  • Merrfn

    Well you must be homophobic to take being called a homo as an insult. But it is intended as an insult due to social order. I have no problems with gays, but I feel offended being called one even though I am not, and it doesn’t matter. Humans are weird.

  • Jon

    does that even make sense?

  • Jon

    Why would they be afraid of you? You are too scared to even show your name, but don’t worry Nintendo4life, it isn’t that hard to find it :)

  • Jon

    Lol, my parents are 500km away from where I live. Unlike you, I don’t live with my parents.

  • Jon

    I like how you are telling yourself to go away.

  • Clel

    Yeah, he is. But just he feels like trolling so he puts himself as guest.

    Sad eh? Double life.

  • Katz

    Does everyone butthurt u? LOL What an embarrassment to all Nintendo fans

  • Katz

    Perhaps he meant specifically the Wii U.

  • Jon

    Every time you reply to me it comes up ” Nintendo4life has replied to you on Mario Kart 8 will be playable at this year’s Eurogamer Expo” for like 30 seconds and then you hit the delete button so then it switches to Guest.

  • Jon

    Nintendo4life

    Alex

    2 minutes ago

    you again, I find it hilarious how you are trying to hide it.

  • Jon

    it’s not killing the Wii U though. The vita sold 600 more copies than the Wii U last week and the Wii U sales dropped due to the price drop announcement. Once that hits, the Wii U will most likely be outselling the Vita by far.

  • TULFich

    perhaps he is now a banned troll XD

  • Jon

    Why? because I pointed you name out because you were talking trash and too much of a wuss to even show your name? It’s doesn’t switch to Guest right away you know, usually the page needs to be refreshed. I just don’t get why you go and give praise and then trash talk in by trying to hide yourself. That to me spells you actually hate Nintendo but for some reason think you need make people think you like it.

  • Marcus Navarro

    *too

  • Jon

    you do? great, post my address for all to see! Or even at least the country and region I am from. We can have a party at my house.

  • Jon

    We don’t want to lick you Nintendo4life. Also, is this picture a hobby of yours?

  • Marcus Navarro

    Do you even have a modicum of software knowledge?

  • Marcus Navarro

    Post it then.

  • Jon

    Where did I put words into peoples mouths? I would love to see this.

  • Jon

    Mission accomplished, Trolled the troll.

    Now…. he’s banned :D!

  • Marcus Navarro

    What’s your preferred language?

  • Jon

    Wow… he got banned pretty fast… lol

  • Marcus Navarro

    Wait…how do you know he got banned?

  • Jon

    all his comments are deleted, the same thing happened with Truthteller when he was under that knowledge name or whatever it was.

  • Katz

    Ah! I see now. I refreshed the page and his excrement’s cleaned up. I’d bet on that highly graphic picture he posted. Not even Truthteller as Knowledgeiswhatsup got banned that quickly, and he was taking the piss and running with it. That pic must be it.

  • Jon

    he posted two pics like that. Another reason why I know he is banned. There is no new posts from him and there would have been by now. :P

  • Clel

    What did he post?

  • Marcus Navarro

    Good riddance! Now this site’s 1 step closer to hosting debates in the comment section rather than have it melt down to a cesspool of fans/fanboys slinging vitriol at the trolls slinging pisswater.

  • Marcus Navarro

    Some guy with black lingerie bent over spreading his asscheeks. It wasn’t a pretty sight at all…

  • Aleks

    Gross. a selfie no doubt lol.

  • Clel

    Oh gosh, thank goodness I was late XD

  • Merrfn

    O_O

  • NkoSekirei

    dont wry about that if he ever ends up in prision he might get raped in the shower from droping too many soap bars

  • NkoSekirei

    his preferred language is garbage

  • Jon

    so… in other words I didn’t.

  • MetroidZero

    HAHA brilliant comeback! xD

  • Merrfn

    Stated as a troll? First look I knew he was a troll. A person under the name of “guest”, saying things to offend everyone. Some people just don’t know when to realise that people are fucking with you, and you are giving them the reaction they want.

  • Marcus Navarro

    It was hilarious though. He was pretending to be a hacker when he really had 2 accounts. *sigh* Welp, at least that’s done.

  • Clel

    He said like “I am a troll”

  • Merrfn

    Yeah, but some people get so offended and angry they don’t realise they are doing exactly what the troll wants.

  • Clel

    Oh sorry I misunderstood what you said XD

  • Merrfn

    I really don’t want to see him spread his asscheeks while he wears his mothers lingere. O_O

  • Merrfn

    Oh, right. I really didn’t understand what you meant by that last post :P
