@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.



Grumblevolcano commented on Nintendo Download: 24th July (Europe):

@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).



Grumblevolcano commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

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.



Grumblevolcano commented on Sony: PS4 Is "Welcoming Back" Wii Owners Who S...:

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.).



Grumblevolcano commented on Nintendo Download: 17th July (Europe):

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, 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 :(



Grumblevolcano commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2014 - Sum...:

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 :)



Grumblevolcano commented on GAME's One Day Mario Kart 8 Deal, for £29.99,...:

@Mooj738 Pretty sure it's partially a stock issue. Take for example, you have very limited choice (MK8 deluxe, MH3U deluxe with pro controller, Wii Party U basic with wiimote, Just Dance 2014 basic).

I'd say the best way to take advantage of the £30 deal if you don't have the console would be NSMBU and NSLU bundle + MK8 on its own but the bundle isn't in stock.



Grumblevolcano commented on Nintendo Scoops Three "Best Of E3" Game Critic...:

@Warbeard Sure the quantity of exclusives is good, but the spreading out is pretty poor. It's possible that everything apart from Bayonetta 1+2 and Hyrule Warriors is November, also the first release isn't until mid-September.

Mario Kart 8 will easily last that long for me (played thousands of hours of Mario Kart Wii in total), but it may not for others.



Grumblevolcano commented on Agitha, of Twilight Princess Fame, Confirmed a...:

@DestinyMan I'm also considering replaying Twilight Princess. Haven't played it in a while, I didn't even recognise Argorok from the Treehouse demo. For me it's very common that when a Mario Kart game comes out, that largely dominates the use of the current console. Hopefully that changes with Wii U as there's so many great games coming out in the future.
