LunaticPandora commented on Nintendo Marketing Boss Says amiibo Expectatio...:

YOU DON'T SAY??? I was up at midnight last night checking Argos for wave 4 - never appeared. Went to bed, woke up at like 9, saw they were listed, frantically rushed to add them to my trolley, BAM - sold out. (this is despite Argos's search page saying they are all available for collection and delivery but my trolley states they are available for NEITHER) I don't know when they went live, but I can only presume it was around 3 while I was asleep and sold out before I even had a chance to wake up. Getting so sick of stock disappearing within seconds of it going live.



LunaticPandora commented on Review: Tri-Strip (Wii U eShop):

Sorry kudos for trying, but that "GameBoy" aesthetic they tried is just butt-ugly. Looks like it did in the 90's - unattractive, so difficult to see you practically have to squint, and like pea soup. And I'm guessing there's no contrast option which makes it even worse.

Why? Why is it always sodding GAME? Why can't literally any other store make this kind of offer? Why did they have to be rescued from administration instead of letting them rot like they deserved to? Why do game companies always partner with these muppets instead of anybody else?

@Quorthon GAME is not "more limited in space." Asda is a supermarket first and foremost, with an entertainment section being an afterthought, which is split 3 ways between music, movies and games, so this actually means Asda has barely a third of what GAME would stock. And GAME specialises in games - of course it will be smaller as it is not a supermarket, yet has more shelf space for games despite being smaller.



LunaticPandora commented on UK Retailer GAME Cashes In On Intense amiibo D...:

@ToxieDogg Unfortunately a lot of high street shoppers are sheep and flock to it simply because there aren't any other shops that stock games and gaming merchandise to the extent they do, and the other shops that do aren't as widespread as GAME (Grainger) or get bought out by GAME. (GameStation) Doesn't help that HMV, Tesco's and Asda's games sections have gone down the toilet recently.



LunaticPandora commented on Inflated Prices and Limited Stock Cause Frustr...:

@Grumblevolcano Both Pkmn Ruby/Sapphire steelbook editions disappeared from the site around early November then mysteriously came back around the 17th which is when I decided to place an order before they disappeared again. I have no idea why they disappeared only to come back but hey, maybe the same thing will happen with Smash.

Oh NICE! Gotta have that Groudon theme! Though I do wish Nintendo would stop making quite so many Mario themes in a row. Maybe Metroid, Kirby, DK or Wario would be nice? Heck I'd even take a PAPER Mario theme just to shake things up if they're gonna continue making Mario themes.
