Great to see a new IP performing so well!
If Nintendo markets this right in the West it could become a huge hit. I just hope they don't rely soley on the cartoon to generate sales, or we could end up with another Inazuma (in the UK).



C-Olimar commented on Nintendo Download: 17th July (Europe):

Fantastic discount on Earthbound!
I'll probably buy Steamworld Dig for my brother. Not much this week, though I am a little behind in my 3DS downloads, so no matter!



C-Olimar commented on It Doesn't Look Like We'll Be Seing Sega Games...:

Shame; SEGA tend to employ logical pricing strategies with their VC games.
They don't seem to be very interested in VC atm. Their support on 3DS is sporadic - they spend a few weeks with 2/3 games per week and then are silent for about a year.



C-Olimar commented on Review: Bombing Bastards (Wii U eShop):

@hypercoyote No, but I know that they'd be mature enough to hear the word without repeating it. When things are made taboo they become more desirable. Look at the situation of alcoholism amongst teens in the UK compared to countries with a more liberal attitude towards alcohol, such as France.

BTW I think it's an immature move from the devs to give the game this title simply to provoke a reaction. That doesn't mean the ratings board have to stop all kids from playing the game. Parents need to take responsibility for their children - you can see the name quite clearly and decide whether you think the game's appropriate for your child.
Hearing the word bastard is going to have no negative effect on a 10 year old child, and the ratings board is right to reflect this.



C-Olimar commented on Shovel Knight Has an Unlockable "Butt Mode":

Looking forward to the European release, though I won't be able to afford it till later in the month. I'm sure Yacht Club did say they wanted cross-buy, and NoE seem pretty keen on the concept, so hopefully I won't have to make a decision over which version to buy!



C-Olimar commented on Review: Squids Odyssey (3DS eShop):

Sold on this. Great review. Will be getting this on both Wii U and 3DS thanks to cross buy!

Does anybody know if cross buy works with any account? Say, if I were to buy Squids on my brother's 3DS, then go on his account on my Wii U, could I still download it? Or does it have to be my account? (My account being the first).



C-Olimar commented on Nintendo Open To Minecraft on Wii U and 3DS, a...:

Nintendo should form a strong partnership with Mojang. Allow the use of Mario, Zelda etc skins in the Nintendo versions of Minecraft and help make it big in Japan (with the Wii U version the lead platform). I hope this happens.
