Grumblevolcano commented on Talking Point: Mario Kart 8 DLC is a Winning F...:

@BenAV The key thing regarding "proper battle mode" is not really a mode as such but rather that the GP tracks in battle mode are replaced by arenas like in the past 7 games. Sure, adding new modes that were present Double Dash would be cool but the arenas are the main thing (Baby Park could work well though).

I voted for more of what they've been doing currently, just keep on expanding the already large course roster as well as adding past characters that should be already ingame (e.g Bowser Jr.). I did think of this fantastic battle mode pack idea:

Splatoon x Mario Kart 8
Characters: Inkling (Boy and Girl variants), Bowser Jr., King Boo
Battle Courses: Wii Delfino Pier, GCN Tilt-A-Kart, DS Palm Shore, N64 Block Fort, SNES Battle Course 3, GBA Battle Course 4, [insert 2 multiplayer maps from Splatoon reimagined for Mario Kart 8]



Grumblevolcano commented on Masahiro Sakurai Shares His Positive Feelings ...:

@ikki5 While you could interpret it that way, I think it's more that will be some kind of bundle pack like with Mario Kart 8. Of course we knew a fair amount of contents for the MK8 DLC back in August when the preorders went live (all 6 characters, Blue Falcon, Mute City, Excitebike Arena, Wario's Gold Mine, Animal Crossing, Wild Woods and a few vehicles) but also there was the pack bonus of Shy Guy and Yoshi colours.

Just imagine how angry many people would be if they preordered Lucas only to find out there's a MK8 style preorder pack for Smash available directly after the E3 Digital Event (or whatever Nintendo calls it this time) which includes Lucas.



Grumblevolcano commented on Tales of More Super Smash Bros. amiibo Pre-Ord...:

@Espy That's a fair way to look at it but only for the amiibo that are pretty much useless in games outside of Smash (e.g. Ness, Jigglypuff, Greninja). It isn't a great comparison for amiibo like the Splatoon set where if you don't get them all then you miss out on lots of ingame content.



Grumblevolcano commented on Mario Kart Super Circuit Arrives on the Wii U ...:

I was really hoping for this and was perfect timing given the DLC contents, Super Circuit had so much longevity because of how difficult it was to get 3 stars on a GP (my GBA cart doesn't have the night sky intro unlocked yet). That said, I didn't expect a Nintendo Direct this week which is what no Nintendo Download confirms!

@outburst I'm hoping for DLC packs 3 and 4 confirmed for preorder with Thursday's MK8 update though more Splatoon details is a must!



Grumblevolcano commented on Poll: Would You Like Mario Kart 8 and Super Sm...:

@Tate24 But Roy is a character in a previous Smash, that's why people want him back. Imagine a Smash game where no characters from previous games are cut plus plenty of new characters present. This is what the SSB community wants SSB4 to be! (and outside of Snake this could be possible though I'm really confused about the Kojima situation so maybe Snake is also possible?)



Grumblevolcano commented on Poll: Would You Like Mario Kart 8 and Super Sm...:

I voted very positively for the MK8 questions and "I don't know" regarding Smash. Mewtwo has pretty much added no replayability for Smash (Classic and All Star finish and then that's it, more stages would be much better imo) whereas the MK8 content lasts for hundreds of hours per pack when mixed in with the older content online.

@Tops I agree, I'd want MK8 DLC of the same quality as the current packs and 200cc mode to last through the rest of the Wii U's lifespan.



Grumblevolcano commented on ​New FAST Racing Neo Footage is Set to be Re...:

This sounds promising due to the recent turn of events:
November - Mute City, Captain Falcon Mii racing suit and the Blue Falcon in MK8
April - Big Blue and 200cc in MK8
Summer - New Fast Racing Neo info

While Nintendo's more than likely trolling the F-Zero fans with the MK8 DLC, it could have a very positive side effect of getting attention to Fast Racing Neo.



Grumblevolcano commented on Nintendo Australia Lists eShop Offerings Redee...:

@Tiefseemiez Which Mario Party? If it's 10 then you can't register it as the expiry date is 31st March 2015 however if it's Nintendo Selects edition of 8 or 9 then you can register as the code isn't expired. The rule in general is if the game came out later than September 2014 then you can't register it.



Grumblevolcano commented on Guide: Improve Your Wii U's External Hard Driv...:

@ULTRA-64 I'm glad I decided to upgrade back in January (got a digital copy of Tropical Freeze and MK8 last year as I was using the discs too much) solely because in the end I would've needed to get one irrelevant of my plans due to XCX's increase game performance files. I still think loading without those files will end up being as bad as Sonic 06.
