    CET should be an hour ahead of the time used in the UK I thought - sometimes that's written as GMT+1, although that's not correct in the summer, as CET is GMT+2 then (I think everywhere that uses it observes a daylight savings time scheme). Anyway, BST is GMT+1, so it's unlikely to be any later than 1PM I guess.
    To confuse matters further, it's actually CST / GMT+2 in "Central" Europe at the moment is it not? CET is GMT+1, so the same as BST.

    I think Reggie knows this, but he's chosen to appear incompetent in an attempt to disguise his true nature as a timelord.

    I thought CET modified by daylight savings so it's GMT+1 in winter and GMT+2 in summer. GMT doesn't move but it's not a time zone anyone uses. We use GMT+0 in winter and GMT+1 in summer, so CET is always one hour ahead of the UK.

    This is most true, mal.

    To avoid confusion one could refer to the daylight saving time as Central European Time and the non-daylight saving time as Central European Summer Time (CEST or more conveniently CST for those that hold a preference for three character time zone descriptors due to twitter limitations, text messaging restraints, or other technologically induced, OCD-promoting behaviours).

    Alas this format doesn't seem to have caught on as far as Reginald F. Aime nor his navy blue jacketed, open neck shirted cloth tardis are concerned.

    Of course, the whole thing could be easily resolved by a worldwide UN resolution to adopt Co-ordinated Universal Time as the defacto daily operating standard in each and every timezone, thus doing away with these silly suffixes and causing 4am to occur at exactly the same moment internationally.

    Yet under present arrangements, this post remains a perfectly good 4am semi-senseless meandering otherwise destined to pass into the night like a ghost ship sailing upon a sea of silent keyboard strokes, but only if I were posting from Rio, Montevideo, Sao Paolo, or many other urban conurbations resting atop the Brazilian landmass.

    Back to the topic at hand, I fully expect the next Reg-fronted Nintendo Direct to conclude as he takes of his face, Total Recall style, to unmask his true visage, a giant, squashed dinosaur head, sweating away underneath with steam rising from it and crazy bloodshot eyes lolling in their sockets.

    I think they're going a little overboard with the Mario platformers now, tbh.

    No news on a release date for Luigi's Mansion 2 or Paper Mario?

    I appear to have missed it but no problem. These things happen.

    @DFawkes Wasn't calling you a dick. You made an honest mistake instead of ghost light saying you mean the ds he instead feigns ignorance which I thought was dicky
    Er. I'm not quite sure what you mean about feigning ignorance. I interpreted Raiko101's question as asking if there was going to be a remake of Devil Survivor 2 on 3DS. Which isn't something I've heard of. If I've misunderstood something or I'm being a little slow on the uptake then I'm sorry.

    Oh wow, just got round to looking at the announcements and it looks like I'm going to be throwing a fair amount of money at Nintendo system games over the summer.

    Folders added in an upcoming update- 25/4 in the US apparently.

    Also, patching for 3DS games. Including the Wuhu glitch on Mario Kart 7!

    New Super Mario Bros 2 is welcome, but not overly exciting. I was hoping it would be in the vein of Super Mario Bros 2, but unfortunately not. :(

    I am looking forward to Mario Open Tennis in May, and then Heroes of Ruin in June though.

    The new super Mario games have been a bit dull (aside from the ace MP in the wii one) compared to the likes of Galaxy or Super Mario world, like they are stock mario platformers with one or two new features

    But saying that a dull super mario is still more fun then 85% of games
  • Deleted user 21 April 2012 21:26:22
    I'm actually a big fan of the DS and Wii games. It's just I can't see a third one being much different. Still, they've sold a combined 40 odd million so it's no surprise more is one the way.
  • Deleted user 21 April 2012 21:45:48
    I expect they will come up with something that entices us in. i havn't played the wii one, but enjoyed the ds one.

    With a wii u mario bros game 'in the vain of the one shown last year' its going to be interesting how they are going to differentiate between the two gameplay wise.
  • Deleted user 21 April 2012 23:20:58
    The Wii U one seems to have retained focus on simultaneous 4-player. There's no sign of that in the 3DS version so far.

    What I most hope is that they bring back the mini-games from Super Mario 64/New Super Mario Bros. Those were brilliant.

    Registered 7 years ago Some good news, the tanooki tail is back again. (hopefully mario will actually fly this time) and the screen shots look pretty fun, I like the spiderweb one. Last bit of silver lining, I can't imagine them bringing out 2 new super mario bros in one year so maybe the mario they are doing for wii u could be a 3d mario (fingers crossed lol)

    Miyamoto himself has already suggested that New Super Mario Bros Mii is being turned into a full 2D Mario Wii U title.

    I have a feeling that they didn't plan to have "New Super Mario Bros. Mii" as a launch title for the WiiU but after seeing the 3DS sales they realised how much Mario helps sales so decided to rush it forward. Hopefully i'm wrong though.

    Anyway, i'm really glad they're patching the glitch in MK7 as it's been putting me off playing the game online and the folders will be really handy.

    New Super Mario Bros. 2, I really, really hope goes nuts with 3D parallax scrolling, if you've seen the previews of Rune Factory 4, which is completely 2D, it looks nuts in 3D. Also, the gameplay possibilities would be neato, moreso than 3D Land.

    Also, its all but confirmed that it will have new levels to download, as when Iwata mentioned downloadable stuff (I refuse to call it DLC because I feel like I'm giving into a "double plus ungood" style of obfuscating language, a lot of downloadable content is so much content as it is pure ass) would enable players to download new levels of Mario games. And looky here new Mario game that can take advantage downloadable hooks. I smell money-schemes. Especially if it goes on for years, which would be a dream come true. Wouldn't it be thread be talking about in a thread about a new level in this game 2 years from now? I doubt it, but I can dream.

    Though I'm not completely Theatrhythm songs and Mario levels are ideal uses of the idea of downloading additions to a game.

    I'm not sure about Fire Emblem yet. I haven't had a chance to download the free character/scenario/map yet.

    Just watched the Nintendo Direct video. Now, after about 5 months of owning a 3DS I'm starting to get the feeling that it's going to be even better than the DS (which is officially my favourite gaming device of all time). Heroes of Ruin is looking good - not a game that was on my radar at all but now I'm looking forward to it. I have high hopes for Mario Tennis, which looks like it's going to be tons of fun online. All in all, I'm feeling pretty good about owning a 3DS. Can't wait to see where they take it next.

    Bah, I probably play the NES games more than the GBA ones (goes to check...NES about 24 hours, GBA about 20 hours total, although I've played my top three GBA games more than my top three NES).
  • Deleted user 24 April 2012 07:47:11
    I've managed 14 hours for Zelda, 10 for Mario, 8 each for Donkey Kong Jr and Balloon Fight, 5 for Metroid, and everything else is around the 2-3 hour mark. I've also got 5 hours on PunchOut. I'm loving the NES stuff myself.
