MeddlingIdiot commented on Demand For amiibo Continues As Pre-Orders For ...:

If your in Bristol don't bother checking Game for any second wave amiibos. Broadmead has Mario, Samus and Fox, Galleries just has Mario behind the counter. If you like Skylanders or Disney Infinity though they seem to be taking up more shelf space than actual games.

I got my Marth through the post today (thanks Tesco) and although his face is fine, there are a few tiny scuffs to the paint job on his belt and shoulder. I'll keep hold of it for now until I track down another one, but in future I'll probably order two amiibos at a time and return the lesser quality one.

@SphericalCrusher Amazon. I received an email from them at 2am on the morning I was meant to receive it, basically saying there's been a problem and that I'll have to wait until December 19th. I emailed them back and they blamed Nintendo for screwing up supply. I cancelled the order and went with Shopto who supposedly had some in stock according the their website, but I've still not had any dispatch confirmation...



MeddlingIdiot commented on Video: We Tackle the Legendary Hyrule Warriors...:

The game's still serving me well, so I've not gotten around to the DLC yet, and with Bayonetta just around the corner Hyrule Warriors may have to go on the back burner for a while. Fortunately, as entertaining as Smash is on the 3DS I'm by no means hooked, which means more Wii U time for me.



MeddlingIdiot commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

7/10 is what I thought it'd get to be honest. Doesn't bother me though, that's still a good score for a spin-off of one of the best best gaming IPs of all time. Friday can't come soon enough! :)



MeddlingIdiot commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer?:

Super Mario World got my vote but it was tough deciding on that or Galaxy. SMW won out due to it's replayability, though I'm not saying Galaxy isn't replayable, it's just that there are two Galaxy games and only one SMW. I must of played it at least 20 times.



MeddlingIdiot commented on Feature: Hyrule Warriors - Everything We Know ...:

With all the characters and locations gathered together in this article, I'm starting to get quite excited about this one now. I'm not sure how long it'll hold my interest for but I'm sure it'll at least be great for some short, nostalgia-based bursts now and then.



MeddlingIdiot commented on Feature: A Night At The Theatre With Symphonic...:

Unfortunately I was unable to attend this concert although I went to the 25th Anniversary and last year's Symphony of the Goddesses, which were phenomenal. It does sound like this performance was put together in a short amount of time, which is a shame considering admission price. Hopefully the official tour will roll though the UK again at some point in the near future, as Eimear Noone certainly knows what she's doing.



MeddlingIdiot commented on Reaction: Our Thoughts on Nintendo's Big Day a...:

I see the lack of anything from Retro Studios and Next Level Games as a positive. Yesterday's event was really strong without those two studios in the mix, which is a testament to Nintendo's output. Obviously Retro and Next Level will have something to show us in the near future - that will most likely blow our minds - and knowing that's yet to come on top of what we saw yesterday... Well, it's certainly a great time to be a Nintendo fan!
