@Wes880 Straight from the horse's mouth:

"The US market is our next target: we will definitely release there. It is important for us as there are many medical institutions there that have expressed interest in using the game for training purposes. We're getting ready for US lotcheck and aim to pass it asap."

AlexOlney commented on Toys "R" Us amiibo Pre-Orders Cancelled Again:

I actually had a bit of a hiccup with the NUK Store of all places. The Villager amiibo were back in stock and I immediately ordered one with standard delivery. After a week and the day I was vacating that address came about with no sign of the cheeky little fellow, so I called up NUK to find out what exactly was going on.

After a short chat with one of the operators it was discovered that my item was lost in transit according to their system. I was given a full refund and actually ended up getting Villager for my birthday, so it all worked out splendidly.

I can't help but feel that a delivery driver got a very rare Christmas present for very little though...

AlexOlney commented on Review: Adventure Time: The Secret of the Name...:

@Samuel-Flutter I'm in the minirity of people as I actually enjoyed ETDBIDK a fair amount. It's not my favourite game by any means, but I had a lot of fun with it.

I played the Xbox 360 version from start to finish with a friend of mine, and let me tell you, it's so much better as a multiplayer game. One of the things many critics slammed was that it was too easy, but once you get to the later levels (and unlock the Nightosphere) it's actually one hell of a challenge.

I'd say pick it up if you can find it for less than £20/$30, but only if you have someone else to play with who's also a big AT fan.

@Azooooz Time runs at about one hour in game to one minute real time. Time only flows when you're in control, and you can turn back time by playing the Song of Time, but you lose all your rupees, multiple items (i.e. bombs), and any progress you made in temples will be reset.

@TheWindWaker Honestly I'm sure we didn't get to see all the possible match-ups, but yeah, sometimes there are teams, sometimes there are CPUs, sometimes only explosive items will spawn, it really is a mix-up without being too ridiculous, i.e. invisible fighters, permanent metal boxes at double speed.

Think of the fairer and less crazy matches you can have with Special Smash and then add in a load more possibilities and you're on the right track. It's a shame we didn't play more of it, but time can be pressing at previews!

AlexOlney commented on Feature: Ten Games That Are Perfect For Hallow...:

ZombiU is such a terribly underratd game. Hard as nails and one of the most atomspheric games to date. The individuals traits of the survivors are truly excellent and the GamePad integration is almost unparalleled.

AlexOlney commented on Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire to Be Ava...:

Turns out my maths is highly dubious when using a foreign currency! The article has been edited, but just to clarify for everyone:

The dual pack costs $79.98, a single copy costs $39.99, so that ten dollars saving was a mistake on my part.

Apologies, guys!
