Liam_Doolan commented on Nintendo Will Replenish amiibo Supplies in Aus...:

@Ruthven If you're concerned about securing a particular amiibo that you have missed, I would contact your local stores to see if they will have anything available in the coming months.

Also, from what I've heard, this stock is already being put out on shelves and will only be available at select retailers according to Nintendo.



Liam_Doolan commented on Weirdness: BAFTA Appears To Have Clean Forgott...:

Wow, this is interesting to read. I remember back in the day when Nintendo's very own Rare used to take out various awards and also got one for GoldenEye 007.

I should probably mention the likes of Perfect Dark and Conker's Bad Fur Day receiving BAFTA awards as well.



Liam_Doolan commented on Nintendo and GungHo Online Entertainment Annou...:

As mentioned in the article, a local release of the Super Mario Bros. Edition is confirmed for the west, with Nintendo responsible for publishing the title.

As for Puzzle & Dragons Z, the title has been confirmed for the west since last year, but we're still waiting on a release date.



Liam_Doolan commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Facing Potential E...:

@sillygostly This Smash error appears to be isolated to US gamers right now, but anyone is vulnerable.

The same error code has shown up in the past on a number of occasions with different games and data corruption incidents, and the solution has been to send the system into Nintendo.

Personally, when errors like this occur, I play it safe and wait for Nintendo to patch the game, or the system.



Liam_Doolan commented on Mario & Donkey Kong Double Set and Nintendo Po...:

On the plus side, this is great exposure for Nintendo Pocket Football Club. It's an awesome game with plenty of depth, and deserves all the attention it can get. I've personally spent 80 hours on it since it was released here in Australia. Overall, I think this release is a smart move by Nintendo prior to the holiday season, given how much passion there is for football (soccer) in the UK.

I would love to see Nintendo eventually give it a chance in the US given the rising interest in the game over there, and I also think a Wii U HD version of it at some stage would be neat. Just imagine watching your matches play out on the big screen.



Liam_Doolan commented on Nintendo Announces The GameCube Controller Ada...:

@antdickens Wow, didn't even consider that! Hopefully this indicates some sort of future support for GC titles in general.

Will be great to just jump straight into the new Smash without having to work out the controls. Before this announcement I was obviously going with the Pro Controller option, though I had considered the Wii Remote and Nunchuk setup out of desperation (and familiarity).



Liam_Doolan commented on Review: Golden Sun (Wii U eShop):

For me, the original Golden Sun is up there with the likes of Yoshi's Island and Ocarina of Time. In other words - it's one of the greatest games I've ever played.

I had never really got into a JRPG prior to GS, but would have to say this game/series was the perfect introduction. It's absolutely charming from start to finish, and I might even have to award the sequel with an 11/10 due to its brilliant connection of the two storylines & parties, and epic finale.

If anything deserves an 8/10, I'd probably award it to the third entry in the Golden Sun series on the DS.

EDIT: Funnily enough, I just had a look at the Nintendo Life review of Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, and it was awarded 8/10.



Liam_Doolan commented on Nintendo Pocket Football Club Tournament & Spo...:

@King_Johobo Us Aussies (& New Zealand) should have access to all of these things as we're listed under the Euro release, and are even included within the European rankings.

@Ralek85 I think Nintendo are crazy if they don't release this game in America leading into the 2014 World Cup - especially now that it's localised, as you already mentioned. From what I read, the MLS is also doing pretty well over there, so I'm fairly sure many American Soccer fans wouldn't mind getting in on the action.



Liam_Doolan commented on Site News: Tom Has Evolved Into A New Form: Ed...:

@ThomasBW84 Congrats, Tom! I'm only 20 days late - but better late than never.

Your efforts on Nintendo Life are outstanding! Although I'm still a relatively new face around here, I just want to say how much I appreciate the support you provide the team, and also thank you for the fantastic content you provide the NLife community with!
