Feel free to vote to spam the other thread that's ended up flagged as expired (which was due to a mistake on my part). I've reported it for removal.

Edit: sorted now, thanks guys.

+1 that's what I was thinking too!

Think I will get the GBA game, decent price.

(Before) Playing Kirby's Fighters it never occured to me how insane the moveset for all the copy abilities is. (Each one has tons).

Think I must have used less than 10% of it completing the entirety of Kirby's Adventure Wii. (Which I think is probably the best deal here looking at the price of boxed copies).

Never really played Kirby before. Anything stand out amongst these as worth buying?

Kirby's Adventure (Wii)
Kirby Super Star

Don't get the NES - Kirby's Adventure it is completely broken. (There is a 3D Classic of the same game that has all the slowdown and other problems fixed but it is not in this list).

Kirby Fighters Deluxe - I think is good (It is almost like a lite version of Smash Bros) the important thing is it has download play which hardly anything seems to these days.

No idea about Drum Dash (Never had Triple Deluxe) other than some people prefer it to Kirby Fighters (It is some kind of Rhythm game).

Anyone know if Nintendo offer a refund policy as I purchased Superstar on Wednesday.

thanks

Frustrating when that happens - I feel your pain

Yea, I know it isn't always standard practice, but Riot do it so thought worth a try.

Kirby Super Star - if it's the predicted price; then that is a bargain!
Best Kirby game to date imo

dunno if I'm being dumb but I can never get the 5% discount code, do they change daily and if you've done it once can you do it again?

Maybe considered stealing if you're talking about wii game isos or game files... But for nes, snes, n64 and even gamecube not so sure... These files are all freely available from emulation websites and tbh run with more features and options using the emulators on wii.

Homebrew on the wii and by extension wii on the wii U just opens up many more options, plus nintendo don't take any action in terms of banning online side of wii U. Seems an easy decision to me

What's the difference between downloading Wii games & downloading GC, N64, SNES & NES games? There are sites which allow you to download roms for all consoles but the fact it's possible doesn't make it legal.

Also the fact the emulation of older systems is easier &/or better on the Wii than what you might get by paying for them on the Wii U doesn't exactly justify doing it. It's a feeble excuse really as I would guess the majority of people who do it aren't doing it for the benefit of the extra options but simply to bypass having to pay for the games.

Also I'm not saying I haven't got a soft-modded Wii to play SNES & N64 roms I've downloaded but I think attempting to justify it the way you are is stupid. People choose to do it because it's a way to play games for free.

I've bought almost all the N64 games on the virtual console & they obviously run much better than the emulator on the Wii so there is a benefit to actually buying the games.

Well the slowdown is pretty bad as it is.

But what makes it worse is that it is the PAL version with the speed of Kirby hacked to be more like the US speed but the rest of the game still runs at the old PAL speed.

Dunno where to find the information. (Reviewers seem to never mention anything technical any more).

Try NES Remix or an accurate emulator to see the slowdown issues.

Lots of people got it for 30p and felt it wasn't worth it. (They haven't done stuff like that since really afaik).

The 3D Classic is basically what it should have been like but never was. (The 3D and options are mediocre but there is no slowdown / dropped frames / sprite flicker etc).

Well im not justifying it, just by saying it may not be illegal. And n64 games might be an exception. For example gamecube games have more option to be played using nunchuk wiimote combo and even wii u pro controller and ps3 controllers. The snes emulator has plenty of options too.

And the option to have Wii shop n64 games (downloaded not bought) is still possible even if it may go against many peoples moral code.

The point i was making is playing emulated games especially for things like mame, neogeo arcade etc. would not go against many peoples philosophy on internet usage. For example you may consider it on par with stealing a dvd from hmv. Whereas i see it as not harming anyone and saving a quite a few quid on games which while fun i wouldn't want to pay for.

There was statistic i saw about a year ago based on internet download research, it was released around the time when UK ISPs were barring access to torrent sites - the research suggested most downloads - around 60% of download data (so most big files) downloaded were of questionable origin. It included movies, music, software, porn and games.

I know that unrandomsam's already replied, but I can also back up what he/she has said - Europe gets the 50Hz version, which suffers massive problems with slowdown. I don't have a specific source, but it's a view that I see expressed quite commonly.

FaceBook link: facebook.com/cdk…com

At the top of the page (just below their header image) there's a link to "Click here to get 5% off", which will then take you to a page with the current code. You'll need to like their page to get to the code, and generally it changes every few hours.

Just because you don't want to consider copyright infringement to be immoral doesn't make it any more legal, I'm afraid.
