Hoped this article might include some kind of hint about the release date for affordable space adventures: so excited for that game. I think It's going to be incredible, really hope it gets a serious marketing push from nintendo.

I wonder what "voluntary retirement" means, and what life would be like for employees, targeted for it, that refuse whatever package is offered.

Also brings this to mind: “If we reduce the number of employees for better short-term financial results, employee morale will decrease,” he said during an investor Q&A. “I sincerely doubt employees who fear that they may be laid off will be able to develop software titles that could impress people around the world.” - Satoru Iwata.

I'd be very happy to continue to use both my 3ds and my wiiu for another 3-4 years at least, provided quality games continue to be released for both. I'm in no rush to upgrade, but obviously will do anyway as soon as Nintendo release new hardware.

@AugustusOxy So if women do not want to be subjected to sexual harassment, or won't accept or ignore sexual harassment, they shouldn't go to tournaments?

Is that what you mean by this comment: "Tournaments are filled with smack talk, bad talk, and all sorts of other unpleasant things. Don't like it, don't go to them.".



luke88 commented on GAME Selling Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Conso...:

@Alex_Olney Hi Alex, having read this, I just popped down to GAME on my lunch break. I can confirm that, at least according to the guy in my local GAME store, this deal is not and never has been available 'in store.' Was pretty disappointing. Where did you hear this deal was offered in stores?

Like many here it seems, judging from the negative comments/poll contradiction, I don't think its a particularly great idea but I'd certainly buy one; because I love NIntendo.

I don't think it's a good idea though.



luke88 commented on Amazon UK Is Cancelling GameCube Adapter Order...:

@FritzFrapp very interesting point that, I hadn't really considered it in that way. Guess it was always going to be hard to judge demand.

A lot of the 'sold out' press being garnered is also probably quite beneficial; can't remember hearing anything like it with anything wii u related before.



luke88 commented on Rumour: Has Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem B...:

@RainbowGazelle As I said above, I'd sooner just have another fire emblem game myself. That doesn't mean I don't empathise with the developers or the people who were looking forward to this game. I can see how the tone of bizcuthammer's post led you to think he/she was indifferent to their situation but he/she didn't actually say that.

I think Nintendo need to do a little better, in terms of games, with the 3ds next year. It wasn't exactly a bad year but I don't think it was anywhere near as good as 2013. I'd like a sequel to Chinatown wars, that would surely help rekindle the buzz around the 3ds.



luke88 commented on Video: Nintendo Releases 60 FPS Trailers for S...:

I absolutely love the trailer for splatoon's campaign. It might be the first time in ages I even touch the campaign element of a 'multiplayer shooter.' It looks to be shaping up to be loads of fun. I hope it has co-op - perhaps I'm being greedy?
