@AlexOlney oh Alex I love your reviews, I adore your videos, I basically really enjoy everything you do on this site but for the love of god please don't say that muddling through the 'plot' of this game is comparable to reading the silmarillion. I know you love the silmarillion really. X

I know you've got mad love for Tolks. Don't even jest about our boy J R R like that babes. X

@Yorumi ha, yes, that's true but I don't think that affects my question. I was hesitant to include the phrase democratically elected at all. Nonetheless, you are right. Perhaps my question should've been 'do you think your government is comparable to the nazi government?'

luke88 commented on Potential Massacre Averted At Pokémon World C...:

@TrueWiiMaster Do you think your democratically elected government is in any way comparable to the nazi regime of the 1930's and 40's?

To get back to the present, globally speaking, America is very much in the minority in terms of having an armed populace. We, by which I mean countries in which it is extremely difficult to procure firearms, seem to get by okay. To be honest, I think you sound as though you're suffering from paranoid delusions; I don't think you have nearly as much to fear as you believe. Sorry, I should be clear that I really don't mean to offend you. I really just mean to state that the argument 'guns afford protection from perceived threats and therefore guns should be readily available' is tenuous in the extreme.

luke88 commented on Nintendo Won't Rule Out Giving Yooka-Laylee Ad...:

I'm not sure why some people here seem keen for Nintendo to buy playtonic. Yes, it is made up of some former RARE staff and that's great but they can all leave whenever they want; whomever owns playtonic. I'm no expert on this, but wouldn't Nintendo simply be buying IP and any assets? So far that IP consists of yooka-laylee; a game that looks good so far but one that none of us have played. I've no idea if they have any other significant assets, it seems unlikely for a relatively new company.

Also, to continue being a negative Nancy, I can't really see any reason why Nintendo should spend money promoting this game beyond the line in the article about it being 'a good fit for Nintendo's family friendly console' - seems tenuous at best, to me. Should Sony and Microsoft also make efforts to ensure the game sells well?

luke88 commented on IRONHAX to Use Free-to-Play IRONFALL Invasion ...:

@Chaoz ah, I wasn't really talking about emulation. Sorry, I should've added that caveat, it wasn't clear. I was specifically talking about the kind of people that will choose to download a current gen game that they would otherwise have to buy. I read a comment from someone on this site once, claiming that they had pirated shovel knight rather than pay for it.

I accept your point - emulation is more complex though I still don't think it's entirely clear cut; If less people used emulators perhaps fewer independent used game stores would have closed down in the last ten years. As I said though, I do see your point and I also think that @Linkstrikesback makes a good point in post #19

I've no problem at all with people wanting to get around Nintendo's region locking policy; I don't think it's a justifiable policy. I also don't have a problem with people that want to run home brew software. However, I will never understand people, who profess to be gamers, pirating games. Surely everyone that loves games wants the developers that make them to be paid? I hope any exploit that enables people to pirate games is blocked.

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.

luke88 commented on Yo-Kai Watch Busters and 3DS Continue to Rule ...:

@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.

luke88 commented on Editorial: Super Smash Bros. Should be Integra...:

@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. 😜

luke88 commented on Tomonobu Itagaki Outlines His Goals With Devil...:

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.
