I would bet the Smash U stock shortages will have had at least a somewhat surmountable effect on sales of the game, especially when you consider that practically every major games outlet (especially those online) appear to have almost no stock.

Nice figures for poogeyz though~

@Jazzer94, because Atlus knows how much we like waiting years for their games to be localised.

I don't buy the whole 'Atlus is trying their best to localise stuff and have no money and stuffs' argument. Otherwise they wouldn't have intentionally region locked Persona 4 Arena on the PS3 (which is a region free console, for those who aren't aware) to prevent us getting it until they could be bothered to ship it over here.

This is just another example of laziness. If they're not even supporting other European languages outside of English, it can't take that long to ship the American game over here and slap an EU rating on it. We're not even getting a physical copy!

I love how NL continually posts these articles hating on Ubisoft and manage to rile up the Nintendo fanboys/fangirls every time. The comment count on these articles is always insanely huge for what are largely insignificant stories.

Looks like us Europeans will still have to deal with Atlus screwing us over all the time after all, yay~

lol at all the americans telling us to go buy two 3DS's; because everyone knows that's a great, easily-affordable alternative to Nintendo just removing the region lock.



Blaze commented on Shin Megami Tensei IV's European Release Pushe...:

This is incredibly stupid. To my knowledge, the game isn't being translated into other European languages and it's a digital only release, hence, it is identical to the US game. I'm not a game dev, but how on earth can there be problems 'specific to the European version' when the game is unchanged from how it was released in the US?

Atlus have effectively sat on the game for well over a year doing absolutely nothing. It saddens me that Atlus can be so incompetent at localising games. I love SMT so much that I don't think I could bring myself to boycott the game, but Atlus are certainly making it hard for me to sustain a love for the games and the company.

@SanderEvers By 'remakes' I was more referring to numerous amount of games which are 'upgraded' (although in a lot of cases they're actually downgraded) versions of games already available on the PS360, such as Deux Ex Human Revolution, Darksiders 2, Batman Arkham Origins etc~

and I never mentioned the current PS4/Xbox One libraries being any better, lol. That's what makes the lack of original games on the Wii U so much worse.



Blaze commented on The Trending #WiiUDroughtAid Shows That, Actua...:

The Wii U isn't just having a summer drought; it's been this way more or less since the day the system launched. The Wii U is sorely lacking in retail games that are original, as evidenced by the number of remakes/HD upgrades that are ever-present on the system.

Fortunately 2015 is looking to be a better year for the console.

@WYLD-WOO I will check the Mii on the leaderboard~ and as for lag, it definitely wasn't. The leaderboard showed at the end of the race with the same positions (me first, CPU second, Lucy x third) and I got 15 points.

Also wow, I'm involved in serious discussion on this website for like, the first time in three years. :3



Blaze commented on Play & Win: Join the UK Mario Kart 8 Tournamen...:

I apologise if I'm wrong about this, but I think something weird is going on here. 'Lucy x' apparently won with a perfect score of 240, yet I beat her on Toad Harbour (she came third) therefore making it impossible for her to have a perfect score.

Moreover, when we were racing, she had only completed three races, whereas I had completed around 10 (iirc) and yet, I was only able to complete 15 races in the time remaining, and yet she was apparently able to complete the full 16. It doesn't make sense.

Sorry if I sound like a sore loser (I couldn't have won anyway, even if I had been able to complete my final race, so I'm not that bothered) but I don't trust the results of this tourney at all.



Blaze commented on Atlus Reaches Out to Fans Regarding Acquisitio...:

I'd hoped that Atlus being sold would finally mean that those of us in Europe would get games earlier/at all. Instead, with Sega at the helm, it seems that the US is gonna end up in the same situation as us (or worse) which is no fun for anyone. :(

So I bought this lame console and now you're not even gonna give me compensation!? >:[

Seriously though, this doesn't bother me hugely, mostly because I barely touched the GBA/NES games for the 3DS and I'd rather not have a ton of crappy games clogging up my limited Wii U storage space. Eshop credit would be nice though~
