luke88 commented on Super Smash Bros. Is Getting A Massive Update ...:

Does anyone know if there'll be doubles tournaments? Would absolutely love to take on fellow NLifers with my brother. Any idea @Damo ?

Edit: Just realised that the 31st is this Friday 😊 so don't have too long a wait before I find out, if no one knows.

@ikki5 I think splatoon is undoubtedly 'worth the price.' Perhaps a case could've been made to say it wasn't when first released but that's changed pretty drastically, and more free content is on the way. Obviously value for money is pretty subjective, but what exactly makes you say it's not worth the price.

@BLPs I dunno, I'd say it's still rather early to say outright that the 'NX is not going to work.' What makes you think that? Not trying to be antagonistic by the way, just curious. Also, I didn't think you were an alcoholic, just a guy that enjoys a beverage; as I do myself. 😜

The online component really has me interested; some of the features sound incredible. I'm just not convinced it will all actually work as it's supposed to, is it even going to be possible to find matches? I'll have to wait for reviews before buying this.

luke88 commented on Players Reached Splatoon's Level Cap So Fast T...:

Very happy to hear there'll be more and more free content coming, already have so much love for this game and that's only increasing. I think it's a good idea to increase the level cap; it's a fun way to manufacture a sense of progression, in my opinion. My only wish is that they will soon let us choose between tower control and splat zones. Maybe when 'rain maker' arrives they could open something else up to increase the options a little.

luke88 commented on Interview: Senran Kagura Producer Kenichirō T...:

@Fee seeing or treating people, usually women, as objects to be used for sexual gratification. I'm sure the term can be used more broadly, and in other ways, but I think that's often basically what people that use the term objectification are referring to. So what do you mean when you say it's not a 'real thing'?

luke88 commented on "Moray Towers" Stage Coming to Splatoon Today:

@Fazermint yeah, after a quick blast on turf wars, I often do the same. I'm still hopeful that things will change, perhaps after the number of copies sold reaches a certain threshold. No idea that would need to be though, or even if my theories on this are actually correct at all.

luke88 commented on "Moray Towers" Stage Coming to Splatoon Today:

I love splatoon so much but am starting to get a little peeved by the matchmaking. For me it only started after tower control was released, which meant we could no longer play splat zones when we want to. Thing is, if Nintendo came out honestly and said 'look, our data says that only X number of people are playing at any given time. If we open up more content and give players free choice our data tells us it may take too long to find a match.' I could get on board with that and would appreciate the honesty, even if I'd rather we get to decide how long we're willing to wait for ourselves. I haven't heard anything like that, has anyone? I played the same map five or six times in a row on turf war the day before yesterday, it's a bit ridiculous. Did still enjoy every one of those games, to be fair. 😆

luke88 commented on Rumour: Nintendo Isn't Bringing Devil's Third ...:

Pretty disappointing, if it turns out to be true. I've been looking forward to this game, primarily the online aspects. Without U.S players it's going to be a nightmare finding matches, I imagine. That's assuming the game is even good enough to bother trying to find matches, which, in itself, is consistently requiring an ever greater leap of faith.

luke88 commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Asks for Fan Trust With Metro...:

Next Level games are super talented, based on much of their previous work. I'm willing to believe that this will be a really good game. I was just disappointed to essentially receive confirmation that we won't receive a mainline entry in the metroid franchise on Wii u. It seems a real missed opportunity, I think you could say that about the Wii u, in general, despite the number of top quality titles already out and coming out. I wanted an awesome cricket game with asynchronous multiplayer, I wanted an LA noir style game with the game pad as your notebook. I could go on; a great many missed opportunities. Still, we have had so many great games this generation on both Wii u and 3ds.

Edit: RTS games could've been great on Wii U.

luke88 commented on Video: Here's Everything That Was Shown On The...:

@TheFurminator I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt, I expect it will be fun. I've no doubt the gyro controls will be optional, and Nintendo so rarely release games that don't control well or at least well enough. That is what I think, anyway. Yeah, the graphics looked poor in places but passable in others, not good. I don't think that's going to stop the game being fun though, obviously I'm being optimistic - much of what we have seen and heard doesn't bode that well. We'll have to wait and see what the finished product is like, I guess. Would love us both to remember this conversation come release/reviews. Of course I shall admit I was wrong if it turns out not to be rubbish. 😉

Thanks for breaking these up and putting them in one place NLife! I think almost everything looks like good fun, and I've now set any disappointment I felt aside. The exception to that is Animal Crossing amibo festival; can anyone actually tell me what it even is? I watched as much of the treehouse segment as I could bear. There doesn't seem to be any mini games? Just randomly awarded prizes with accompanying bits of text? I don't really understand.

luke88 commented on Sony Is Assisting With The Creation Of Shenmue...:

@OMC79 @Tender_Cutlet A pleasure to meet you both. I understand the debate surrounding this kickstarter; it does seem contrary to the 'spirit' of kickstarter itself. However, the second I heard about it I lost all self-control, it was frightening. I'd have fought, till death, any man, woman or child that tried to stop me backing the project. I don't have even own a ps4 or a pc.

luke88 commented on Talking Point: Metroid Prime: Federation Force...:

I also feel sorry for next level games; they're definitely really talented people and Dark Moon was superb. I think this game will turn out to be loads of fun too. It's just not what I wanted at all. Coupled with the monstrosity that was amiibo festival it was all just a bit too depressing. I have to blame many of you for the latter, I'm afraid. If you hadn't all started buying amiibo like loons we wouldn't be in this mess. 😉

luke88 commented on Reaction: Nintendo's E3 Digital Event Brought ...:

@FLUX_CAPACITOR hahaha, I know, I know, I'm definitely looking back on star fox 64 with rose tinted glasses. You're right, I haven't played It since it released, I did play it again on 3ds. The trailer got better as it went along in my view but, honestly, what did you think when you first saw Corneria on star fox zero?

Edit: Because I initially thought, "is this really it?" I did think it got better as the trailer continued, as I said. I believe I also said I've no doubt that it's going to be a great game. 😜

@Kogorn733 I don't know, I'm not one of those people that thinks graphics are the be all and end all but at the start of the star fox demo, when they showed the first level from the N64 game, I really wasn't sure what I was looking at. I thought perhaps they were doing some sort of history of star fox segment and that was the N64 game. I've absolutely no doubt it will be a great game, but perhaps one could expect remastered N64 levels to look better than they did in that trailer?

luke88 commented on Metroid Prime: Federation Force Is The Metroid...:

Agree with most of the above; was very excited for this presentation for a long time and feel it was a huge disappointment. Absolutely none of the new reveals excited me. I'm sure Marino tennis, this 'metroid' thing and the co-op zelda thing will play well. I'm just not particularly interested in any of them.

@TwilightAngel Hi, sorry to be pedantic but I've seen this comment half a dozen times here recently and it's driving me crazy. I know, I know, I need to get a life. 😅

Don't you mean to say "I couldn't care less." ?

Have seen so many people here writing "I could care less," and that really doesn't seem to be what you all mean, judging from the general tone of all of the posts I've read it in.
