Grumblevolcano commented on Nintendo Download: 31st July (Europe):

@Emblem It's not just about quantity and quality though, how spread out the content is matters a lot. Take note of the gap between Mario Kart 8 and Hyrule Warriors for example, Wii U has a lot of great games coming in the future but the big chunk of 2014 releases are sandwiched in Q4 leaving the 4 month gap of nothingness.

Again, the streams were too focused on Smash which was rather disappointing. Sure the 3DS tournament was there so that was obvious for the 1st day but it was generally for both days:
Smash Wii U
[insert other game]
Smash Wii U
[insert other game]... etc

Got a communication error before my 1st race even started and it was counted as complete with 0 points gained. All the other 11 races I got either 1st, 2nd or 3rd with a total of 133, I'm not going to last long in the top 20 but currently that's 7th.

I'd rather have more N64 3D remakes (I'm looking at you Majora's Mask) and I'm fine with SNES and GBA being mostly exclusive to Wii U as it gives people more reason to get that console (unless you're in America of which NoA will constantly give you the best games from SNES and GBA several months later than the rest of the world).

@DarkCoolEdge The Fire Emblem Awakening DLC isn't a ripoff, I'd say it's the best DLC any game has had outside of music games (Rock Band, Guitar Hero, Rocksmith, Theatrhythm, etc). Sure, most of the packs require your team to be very high levelled but if you want to get the most out of the main game your team will be levelled up enough.

@outburst I'd prefer if they did a bundle pack for Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn (kind of like with Bayonetta 1+2 or Metroid Prime Trilogy). I feel that if you're playing partially for the story, Path of Radiance really needs to be played first which is the more expensive game currently (£100 if you're really lucky).

As for the offerings this week, all 3 Mega Man titles are mine!

My main is Yoshi+Pipe Frame+Normal Wheels+Parafoil. Although I guess it's far from the best setup, it's basically the MK64 approach to MK8 which is why I choose it.

Still, my use of MK8 has massively dropped since the beginning of July (generally about 2 hours per week by joining the GameXplain tournament on Saturdays) due to having unlocked everything combined with the urge to play Gamecube games.

@NibelsnarfNoob I think Rolf would be a better choice than Shinon, although he is somewhat useless early on in Path of Radiance if you train him up enough and use bonus XP he can become stronger than Shinon. As for choices I'd want the most: Nephenee (Sentinel), Boyd (Reaver), Rolf (Marksman) or one of the beast laguz (preferably Ranulf or Lethe).

Wow and I thought European Club Nintendo was getting worse by rarely updating the stars catalogue selection. At least the European Club Nintendo can net you the Super Mario 3D World soundtrack for 3000 stars, this NA selection is horrifically bad.

I feel games for PS4 and XB1 are pretty much in the same problem now as Wii U was for the first year of launch. The only difference is that PS4 and XB1 gamers are much more willing to indulge into generic FPS games (CoD, Battlefield,etc.).

I'll skip this week in hope for better VC games and that SMTIV is coming out within the next month and a half (Q3 2014). As the Earthbound sale could be to promote the history behind Ness (assuming he is playable in Smash Wii U and 3DS), hopefully that'll mean some of the GBA/DS Fire Emblem games will come to VC for similar reasons (Lyn as assist trophy, Marth as main character).

Grumblevolcano commented on Retail Promotions Prompt Tomodachi Life to Con...:

@Starwolf_UK Makes a lot of sense why I saw an abnormally large amount of preowned MK8 copies when I went to GAME yesterday. People must have purchased for £30 on GAME.co.uk, kept the CN code and then traded it in at GAME (which is close enough to CeX for price match) hence giving £30 cash or £33 for credit. Very sad though :(

I'll be getting Captain Toad, Hyrule Warriors, Smash Wii U and Bayonetta 2, not sure about Sonic Boom but it's bound to be at EGX this year (hopefully) so I'll see how I find it then. Last year I started off with Rocksmith 2014 and Sonic Lost World so I'll probably start with Sonic Boom this time :)
