Crimson_Ridley commented on Give Someone The Gift Of Nintendo This Christmas:

Congratulations to whoever won this! This was a very nice thing for you to do, NLife. I mentioned in my submission that I wanted to win the Wii U for my partner so that I could use the money saved (I was going to buy her a Wii U anyway) to help my partner travel to see her Grandma before she passed away, but unfortunately she died a lot earlier than expected this morning.

Life is a series of surprises, good and bad, but this kindness that the people of this website has shown to help make someone have a great Christmas is very inspiring! :)

This is why I never shop at GAME, and neither should any gamer with any sense. Supermarkets, the internet and lesser known game stores are where you should spend your money. GAME charge £49.99 for every new Wii U game! No wonder they almost went out of business.

Crimson_Ridley commented on Weirdness: Legless Peach amiibo Now Up For Sale:

Am I the only one that is actually quite disappointed with the quality checking of these amiibos? One would assume that a product made by Nintendo would be of a very high standard, yet you have to really look at each figure that you buy to make sure it's not got dodgy eyes, a missing limb, paint defects, etc. The Disney Infinity figures are much higher quality, and the same should be expected of Nintendo. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy my Samus and Mario amiibo, but I'm not particularly happy with the cheap quality.

I have 2 OR/AS demo codes here that I don't need. The majority of you have probably already got the demo, but for those still waiting, good luck. :)

Enjoy. Please be kind and say thanks once you've activated one. Have a great day, everyone! :)

That's a shame. It's been hard to find the magazine lately though, with most Supermarkets dropping it, and even WHSmith had very few copies. I used to read the magazines a lot, though I preferred NGamer (I may be slightly wrong on the name). I'll pick up a copy of the last issue for collection purposes though.

Crimson_Ridley commented on Super Mario World Speedrun Record Is Broken:

Does anyone have the link to the YouTube video? I can't view Flash videos on my iPad. I thought most people used HTML5 these days.

EDIT: Ah, is the video from Twitch? That might explain it, and why I can't find a YouTube video of it. I'll have to jump to my PC then. :)

Crimson_Ridley commented on Capcom Is Suing Koei Tecmo For Patent Infringe...:

Capcom, here's an idea; go back to making games your fans actually care for than rehashing SF IV over and over, turning Resident Evil in to a train wreck, and ruining the Breath of Fire franchise, amongst other things. You'll find that you'll start making money again so that you need not try to file some pathetic lawsuit.

Tell you what, for that advice you can hire me. Then, I can throw it back in your face because I'm not one for sailing on a sinking ship.

Are wireless controllers really all that important to you all? How far do you sit away from the screen that a wired controller is an inconvenience? Stop being the pathetic "gamers" of the internet and moaning about trivial things. Grow up.

Crimson_Ridley commented on Miiverse Tells the Tale of a Broken Mario Kart...:

Mine arrived at 10am this morning! I then got a text from them (which also left me wondering why Nintendo feels they can just give out my mobile number) to tell me it had been delivered.

I'm now currently wearing my Bullet Bill shirt, have put my Spiny Blue Shell and Red Shell key ring on my shelf, slotted the case in to my Wii U collection, and have played a few Grand Prix's on the game. It's excellent, and so gorgeous!

Crimson_Ridley commented on Pikmin 3 Update Adds New Stylus Control Style:

I'm going to pick this up soon, but not through the MK8 promotion, as the game retails for around £20 new. I'll be playing the smarter option for myself, and picking up Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, as the game is still upwards of £30 pre-owned and I haven't played much of the original game on the Wii.

Crimson_Ridley commented on Miiverse Tells the Tale of a Broken Mario Kart...:

I've received 2 emails from Nintendo today. One when I sent them a pretty angry email about them not dispatching until the last minute, where they said "it should arrive today or tomorrow", and another saying that it has been dispatched with an ETA for tomorrow. However, in the tracking, it says it's awaiting collection.

I don't think I'll be ordering from the official website again, as Amazon, ShopTo and even GAME dispatch days in advance! You know something is wrong when you'd rather order from GAME.

Crimson_Ridley commented on Miiverse Tells the Tale of a Broken Mario Kart...:

I have doubts that Nintendo are going to even get the game to me Friday. I was hoping to get it on my birthday (tomorrow), but they haven't even dispatched it yet! They took the money last Friday, for Christ's sake!

I'll be happy to receive it Friday, but I would have expected it be posted by now.

Crimson_Ridley commented on Sonic Lost World Hits 710,000 Sales as Sega Li...:

Significant 3DS support is brilliant, but we appear to be glossing over the fact that there's not much in development for the Wii U, especially from a developer that seems committed to Nintendo. Are we just gracefully accepting the Wii U's a failure now? There's SO MUCH that SEGA could bring to the Wii U and they could also convince Atlus to bring a number of games over, which would drastically increase the console's appeal, but instead it just appears they're just releasing games on it reluctantly.

This year is going to be make or break with Nintendo as the PS4 and X1 will start powering forward with some great titles, while Nintendo have Mario Kart 8, Bayonetta 2 and to a very lesser extent Hyrule Warriors as their big hitters. All of which are unfortunately going to struggle to see the Wii U through (they're going to be awesome, but aren't going to sell consoles by the boatload).

Even Nintendo are giving up on it, and I really thought that SEGA would be one of the companies dedicated to supporting the Wii U. So much potential, but so little support. I want those years back where Nintendo could have a console that wasn't a top seller but had some absolutely incredible titles. The N64 never matched the PS1 in sales, but gave birth to games that were so incredible, they still inspire to this day. Where is that Nintendo now?

Crimson_Ridley commented on Nintendo Direct: Special Mario Kart 8 Direct S...:

The game looks very exciting, and the new information was great, but that UK Direct was a disaster! My God, it was awful! I really don't care for forced excitement and would much preferred it if they'd have gotten actual people excited about the game to present it, and none of this amateur acting crap.

Crimson_Ridley commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

I don't find this sexist at all. One thing you'll know about males and females is that they find certain body parts rather attractive. Having a girl with big breasts is just the same as having men with overly muscular torsos. Do they never think that it might be insensitive towards slimmer men? No, they only care about how they are being portrayed.

Let me tell you something else; many women store their phones and money in their bras to keep them safe. How is this picture any different to that. The only people that find these things sexist are the sexist people themselves.

Crimson_Ridley commented on Mario And Zelda On Mobile Could Bring New Play...:

Man, I miss living in a world where gaming news didn't have to revolve around smartphone and tablet "gaming" all of time. It isn't the holy grail of the gaming world, no matter how much the media and analysts try to convince us so. It's awkward as hell to play and doesn't feel natural unless you're playing a puzzle game.

Nintendo don't need to port crap to the dark side of gaming, they just need to be more aggressive like they were 10-15 years ago. They've become complacent, and comfortable behind the pack just doing their own thing. Nintendo thrives when they have someone to compete against, like SEGA. Ever since SEGA went to disc based systems and then dropped out of the console market, Nintendo hasn't had a true competitor (yeah, they went against Sony for a while, but then the PS1 was primarily competing with the Saturn as the N64 was a cartridge based system, and later the PS2 had Xbox to contend with) to really get their teeth in to. They've gone through multiple innovations that no one else has challenged (at least not directly, as the Kinect is a different kind of motion control and the Move is... well, it's not really anything) so they've had a portion of the market to themselves.

They need to fight their way out of their comfort zone in the "Nintendo part of the market", and start chomping at the feet of the market leaders to really get people to notice them again. They should demand to be seen, considering they are responsible for us all doing what we do today.

Crimson_Ridley commented on Review: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual De...:

@unrandomsam you rate a game on how good it is, not how much it will appeal to people. If a game is made for a niche market (Beyond: Two Souls, for instance), but it still amazing, it deserves a justified review score. If the game is similar to previous entries, but is still a fantastic game it should be rated as high as well.

I just got one. I have no doubts that it'll probably look a bit crap when I receive it, but I decided now was as good a time as any to actually spend some of these points I've been saving up. I'm still interested in getting the statue that's in the catalogue, but you can buy it on eBay for about £20.

Crimson_Ridley commented on UK Retailer GAME Less Than Happy With Rivals I...:

I can't be upset that UK retailers broke the date, because I don't believe they realised the 12th wasn't Friday. When has a game released on a Saturday in the UK? Tuesdays and Fridays are when we get games, so I'd assume they just thought Friday was the official launch.

Time zones also meant that the world didn't get the game at the same time, so Nintendo's idea was doomed from the start. This really isn't a big deal yet has had far too many articles posted about it.

GAME is only jumping to the defense of Nintendo because it's desperate for exclusive content.

Crimson_Ridley commented on Video: A Punboxing of The Wind Waker HD Collec...:

I'm a huge Zelda fan, but to be honest this looks very disappointing. £60 for such a small figure, a plastic case (they could have gone for glass as it looks much more attractive) and a game that should only retail for £29.99 seems like Nintendo is giving a massive middle finger to the fans, knowing they'd pay out for it.

If the figure was a few inches bigger, and the price was £10 less, I'd be a lot happier.
